Global War 1939


  • '14

    @Noll:

    I know that you are revising the map, so I’d like to ask: Can you put ROME closer to it’s real location? (withouth changing the game mechanics)

    Rome should be in the middle of Italy, you’ve put it where Venice is located.

    Thanks!

    The revised map will be identical to the old 39 map except for certain name changes, larger Europe,Japan, and Great Britain.  Hope this doesn’t keep you from buying the map!



  • I’ll buy it yeah, only it will be funny with my friends (all being Italians) pointing me Rome every 5 secs 😞

    Actually I’m adding victory cities and Rome will be geographically correct

    If you look here:@Variable:

    HBG prints the map for you on some very nice vinyl. No paper. This stuff is much better. Here is the link to the map:

    The Revised version should be out around Monday and can be ordered in two sizes. I have the smaller $60 one that works well at 34" X 72", especially in the revised version it will be good. For the ultimate GW39 experience, shell out for the epic 47" X 96" version at $100. If you have the room to play this, you will never put it away. Rules will need to be printed along with setup charts etc on your own. Files are all on BGG here:

    Finally, to get all the pieces you need for the game, you must own Europe and Pacific 1940. In addition, here is the link for the special GW39 set to buy from HBG that will cover the rest:

    http://www.historicalboardgaming.com/Painted-Pieces–Global-War-1939-Lot_p_726.html

    Included there is a listing of everything in the kit. Buying it this way saves a bunch of money over buying the individual pieces. I will include a pic below. Hope that answers all your questions!

    Bottom of post includes a list of what stuff comes with the piece pack for the D12 version. So Im sure we will need some of what is listed there. I too am using the D6 system, and Im not exactly sure what I need for that.

    Field Marshal Games created the D6 version, so I will try and ask him.



  • The D6 setup charts are on BoardgameGeek.

    From the charts you should be able to tell what pieces are required.



  • Cool we’re going to try it this weekend.

    Guys,

    ––I’m going back and re-reading all of the hundreds of pages concerning HBG’s Global 1939 since I/we now have found additional players I’ve ordered the larger map and units set. It’s taken quite a while,…but I feel it’s a good investment in a better understanding of the rules/game.

    ----Great Work Doug & Adam!

  • Hi all.

    Would it be possible to buy an editable and digital file for this map? I would like to make some customizations on my one.

    Thank you.

    Hi Coach.

    I think I previously posted this in the wrong thread.

    While browsing the expanded rules on the HBG site i noticed the Australian division marker rules. We will now be able to utilize division level units with these rules using the division markers provided by HBG. I started putting my order together but noticed there are no UK infantry division markers. Will any be produced?

    How is the Island Warfare expnsion coming along? Is it on schedule for release this summer?

    Will we ever be able to purchase resource markers individually or always in sets of ten?


  • Sponsor 2017 '13 '11 '10

    I do need to produce some UK Infantry markers, i will put that on our list.
    island Warfare is delayed but we are looking on the best way to produce these sets with our factory.
    We are actually changing the way you can purchase pieces on the site, no more ones or two, there will be a 5 min. on pieces and markers. We have to do this to keep us going.

    Thanks Coach,

    Will standby.



  • Japan dow UK before USA is at full production. (lets say to make this clear its turn 1)
    USA in turn dow on Japan…
    Does USA now get full production ? Or must it still roll dice and whatnot for income ?

    Coach,

    I forgot to mention the website states that you are out of stock of those nice plastic German roundels.
