Worth it?



  • So I just picked up 41. Exactly the hook I’ve been looking for to get my more casual friends interested.  😄

    Now I see this. 42 2nd edition.
    I already have AA50. Is this worth picking up? How does it compare to AA50?
    How does it compare to 1st edition?

    it’s different and the map is much larger and different, like AA50. Get it

    Regarding complexity, it’s the same as the original AA42, without the tech, NOs and Italy/China of AA50. The map has more territories and some key changes but the original layout is also still based on AA42.

    Strategy wise, it’s close to AA42 but it is also very different - the 9 VC victory condition can now be won by the Axis without taking Moscow while KJF can have stronger odds than on any of the previous versions.



  • I’ve got 41, for quick casual games, and introducing new players.
    I’ve got global for epic weekend marathons  :-D.
    And AA50, has served as my main game.

    I just can’t think of a situation where I’d play this instead of AA50.

    Maybe for consistency in rules? Anti-aircraft, etc.
    I’m wondering then, what the main difference are, and if I could add them to AA50 as house rules? Pick up some colour coded AA guns and whatnot.
    Think it’d disturb the balance too much?
