Should Axis and Allies be reduced to 2 turns?

    It does except on the first turn it might be different.

    For a Europe 1940 game, you might have not changes, but if the scenario was a 1942, you might have Russia playing first just in the first turn, then after axis after that.

    For 1940, all axis play first and i see no need for changes in turn order for any turn.

    italy is still pointless in a 2 turn system.

    Italy is not pointless, although I do recognize that they appear to become significantly weaker. I actually like this, as it more closely simulates the real war (Italy needs Germany’s help in Africa and Middle East or it will get its butt kicked…) and is good for adding newer players, which our group seems to do regularly. What I mean is Italy is a good power for someone who is inexperienced to use, because if they make a mistake it most likely wont cost the game. IMHO Italy always seems underrated, and can actually make a significant impact in the game with just a minor amount of aide from Germany.



  • For me this would ruin the game.  For our games we play that all purchases must be done before your turn and the next turn starts as soon as the previous player has finished their combat move.

    This really speeds the game and no one is bored.  We even finished two games in one evening!

    Under this system that is already being done. All players of a side perform all the turn functions together, except rolling dice. Then the other side does the same. While the first side performs this the other side is making builds and preparing their turn. So its even faster.

    Dudes, fun is whatever you think it is.  There’s no need to convince others who you aren’t even looking to play games with, that your way of playing A&A is good or better.

    Larry’s making his game what he wants it to be.  He knows how long it takes to play this game.  If you want to play it a different way to make it faster, do so.  Sharing the ideas is nice.  But there’s no need to campaign Larry to change the rules for everyone or to get him to make an official way to play a 2 turn game.  Just come up with your own set of rule variations, just as IL has done before in the past.

    You could look at A&A in the same way as Legos or Lincoln logs.  You play with it however you want - don’t feel constrained by the rules.  You just have to find a person or a few who agree with you, or play it against yourself.  :lol:
