He can play poker with 1941. His point is are the two games just different versions 41 and 42 of the same game, same rules?
The games are not compatible and are stand alone games with no relation.
I understood that he is expecting that the new ruleset would be the same for 1942 2nd Ed.
Anyways, he can play poker or he can take the 1941 ruleset and try it on Spring 1942 2nd Edition. I’ve done it myself with Spring 1942 1st Ed. 🙂 did it shorten the game?
What shortens the game on 1941 is the smaller map and the reduced income. The changes in game play (no strat bombing, etc.) have no almost no effect on the speed of play.
