My friend and I play while drinking
I like the way you phrased that, rather than saying “My friend and I drink while playing”. It sort of implies that Axis & Allies is an accompanying activity which makes the primary activity of drinking more fun. There’s probably a potential marketing concept there for the folks at WotC.
AA42 is a great game. I played last night for 6 1/2 hours before 9 VC were obtained by the Axis. Allies made a couple of mistakes by forgetting to purchase units for 2 countries and forgetting to collect income for 1 country. I have been negative about AAP40 by WotC but AA42 is great. I just had to add IPCs, marshal cards/tokens, and the VC chart from Revised. Whether it is WotC or another company making the games makes no difference to me for AA42 but I do think WotC cut corners a little with the release of AA42 and AAG40. I also added to AA42 the damage markers and tech from AA50 and the flight path markers from Revised.
@ Tall Paul: No offence taken in any way, I just needed to state it
I am really happy that the lot of you steps up for FGM all the way and in fact, this has a very soothing effect on me which in turn helps me being more patient! I do know that one man can only work, breathe, live and stay mentally sane so much, even if a good intention is spoiled, that´s the disheartening truth and what makes me sad about this.
And just to let you and Jeremy know: Once this episode is over, I am thinking about buying a dice tray and some chips. They say, that once you have been through hell with your customer and came out in a way that both can keep their head held high, this is the real trust builder. Personal experience taught me that they are right
@Jeremy (if you ever read this): In my first anger, I have written some lines on Facebook and in another thread in this forum. Though they were not impolite, they certainly were not positive. I deleted both of them before anyone could reply, to not put more pressure on you than the circumstances demand and keep your reputation unharmed, as you certainly deserve it. The internet is a shark-pit and it never forgets, but sometimes I do. I apologize for not keeping my temper in check.
Hope your game goes great!
Thanks we had a good time. We finished that game and played another on Sat. Then I dug out my Axis & Allies Navel ships and Wings of War (WWI & WWII) we played all those too. So we played a lot of games over the weekend I really enjoyed the time glad I never got rid of those things.
i couldnt download it at first because i didnt have the installation program.
If its the installation program then go to this link:
U get it in a zip file then, maybe that works.
