    And the earthquake. You’ve heard about the earthquake, right?

    And the World ending on Friday at midnight. Should just give me time to complete my first game.


  • @Flashman:

    You didn’t get any light brown Russians, by any chance?

    No, mine have all the same dark brown colour…

    Just finished my first game after 4 days. The ending leaves a lot of questions and I´m sure I made some errors but it was so much fun even to play it solitaire…
    My results

    • Once the americans entered the war it was only a matter of time when the allies would cross the rhine.
    • I pushed too late for Russian Revolution (guess it was turn 5-6)
    • OE did made a furios performance (They had much luck with the dices I guess) Â
    • Italy was pain in the ass for Austria (Next time I play, they`ll be CP for sure)
    • I love air supremacy

    Its the best boardgame I ever played
    I only wish that France Belgium an Germany had bigger tts…

    What about my idea that Alsace should be Strasbourg = production centre for France OR Germany depending on who controls it?

    If Germany suffers a major defeat in the west it so difficult to recover, but allow (perhaps a limited) build in Alsace and Germany has a chance.

    Alsace is a flammkuchen- and wineregion. I lived in Strassburg for 2 years so I know what I´m talking about. It´s a rural area and I don`t associate it with military production. The Ruhrgebiet is the industrial heart of Germany where Krupp produced the Big Bertha and were more people live(d) than in Berlin. So it should be a limited building place for Germany. France in contrast is centralistic - its all about Paris. But Joffre and Petain can depend on Britain as “their Ruhr”.


  • Back to the order at hand…

    But, but Strasbourg itself is the capital of Europe. France was obsessed with regaining it. Its in such a good place for a PC…

  • My order is shipping 😄


  • thought the capitol of Europe is Bruessel? Strassburg has the european parlament.
    Strassburg is nice many beautiful buildings were built in the wilhelminian era 1900 but France would also be obsessed with regaining Le Havre if Germany would have taken it 1871.
    They are very resentful people  😛

    You must have rooms and rooms full of A&A game boxes.  Nerd central.  (I have every A&A game, but just one of each; and I consider my collection nerd central too)


  • My wife likes to call me a nerd or loser for playing these games. I told her it could be worse I could be addicted to on-line gaming or drugs. Mine are coming tomorrow according to Fed ex.

    Yes, on the nerd scale (1-10 with 10 being the most nerdy) historical wargaming on the scale of A&A is like a 4 with games such as WOW being a 7-8, Magic/paper D&D being a 9 and LARPing a 10.


  • My games are offically on my door step.  Can’t wait to get home.

  • Customizer

    According to the Fedex tracking link in my CSI e-mail, my games are due to arrive the 22nd. This is cool since I have next week off with plenty of time to get into this game and see if I like it.
