Speculating the differences between 1st and 2nd Edition


  • I hope its just a reprint of anniversary, with tokens for factories.

    1941 - Super simple intro game, reminiscent of classic
    1942 - Intermediate game, introduces units like Cruiser and Artillery, as well as concepts like Strategic Bombing and new Industrial Complexes.
    1940 - Advanced game, New units such as Tactical Bomber and Mech Infantry, new concepts like raiding, National Objectives, and Facilities.

    I hope the expanded map for the second edition of A&A 1942 will include more territories, especially in Europe and China.  I think a new 1942 map that more closely resembles the map of A&A50 would be a big improvement.

    On my calculations, more most of the times doesn’t mean better, I prefer K.I.S.S.

    If you look at 1941/Global/AA50 the tendency on Europe has been to make Germany choose between the northern/southern routes, or separating more Karelia/Leningrad from Caucasus/Stalingrad. That may be added to 2nd Ed.
    On China it’s anyone’s guess - they could add 1 more territory to make the Chinese route to Russia be longer but it really doesn’t change much.

    On thing is for sure, the map is indeed larger. That’s about all I know right now.

    Is your statement based on information from the sales flyer or have you received the review copy of A&A 1942 2nd Edition?

  • The map is indeed bigger - I think a good size, in fact. There is still along the top of the map a place to track IPCs which I think could have been done without.

    OOB - no tech, no NOs.
