Global War -1936-1939-1942


  • Really like this 1936 variant from what I have seen so far 🙂

    Maybe now I don’t have to play like 80 hours of WorldInFlames to get a complete, satisfying WW2-feel.
    Great game though very long playing time  😢.

    Units taking time to produce very nice  :-D. BBs/CVs taking like 2 years in reality, but at reduced IPC cost compared to current cost, ofc.
    Speaking of IPCs, I missed the IPC values on the maps?! Guess that’s just a ‘test-feature’ ;-).

    Hopes up for a slightly more sophisticated combat system (with less dice rolled?) that is more forgiving and softening up (very) bad/good rolling.

    ItsLeClerc & Others,

    ––HBG already has the 2-D and 3-D versions of it’s “Floating Drydock” markers made and in stock. You could even include them in your Global-1940 games as a house rule if you wanted. I had wanted this (and other) enhancements in my A&A games for several years. I guess that we are ALL lucky that the “Coach” at HBG seems to be as addicted to this game as we are, and is a good businessman, too.

  • I don’t like reviving old topics, but I figured I could for this one…  I know that this question’s been asked already, but I’m just wondering what the status of this project is.  It looks extremely promising.  I think I’m speaking for other people too.  Are we still looking at this fall to know what it’s all about and see it on sale?

    Also, does the development of the 7.0 version of the GW39 rules have any correlation to this version?

    I hope to hear from you soon.  Thanks.


  • will the 36 game be compatible with the global expansions, and will there be two types of currencies


  • Just bumping this because I think it would be great to see this project come to fruition.

    Just bumping this because I think it would be great to see this project come to fruition.

    We are still working on it, will have a big play-test this weekend in Tulsa.
    We will have more information in the newsletter and I will post some here.

    One of the projects we are really excited about at Historical Board Gaming
    is our new edition of GLOBAL WAR.  Some of the features that should be
    exciting to games include a number of new units and sculpts including Mountain
    Infantry, Partisans, Light Carriers, Air Transports, Torpedo Boats (and more). 
    The beautifully recolored map features a host of new territories and terrain
    features - a completely historically accurate landscape.  The optional 1936 start
    date, new victory conditions, convoy and lend-lease systems and many
    other changes will make this a must have!  The 1936 game features many early war conflicts including the Chinese Civil War, Spanish Civil War, Italian invasion of Abyssinia and others.  Small conflicts and limited income in the early war phase allow players to undertake expanded strategy options as they prepare for the coming war.  Rules will be released in a modular 3 ring binder system allowing you to add pages as supplement sets come out.

    We have MANY planned expansions, the first of
    which will be BATTLE FOR THE ATLANTIC, followed by ALLIED SUPER
    WEAPONS.  From there, we’ll not only put out World War II sets
    but work backwards to an Interwar set that connects to a World War I
    game (and forward and backward in time from there).  Our goal is to create an integrated game system where players could play from 1860 to Modern Day with units evolving over the course of time.


  • A quick reply!  Awesome, thx.  Looking forward to all of the stuff coming ahead :).

    Uh, damn. This sounds utterly fantastic. Count me in!

    I thought Island Warfare was the first Global Expansion set coming.

    So, you say the map will have terrain like mountains and marshes that effect the combat value ? Are the rules finished, or are you open for suggestions ?

    **––“UNIT EVOLUTION”, this is a major feature I really wanted! Just imagine a 1926-1946 global war game where you start with Bi-planes, then upgrade to
    P-40 Kittyhawks, then P-51 Mustangs, then P-80 Shooting Star jets! This allows for a real large spectrum of play if you so desire. And this is only ONE of the new features this game is introducing!
    ----Such as a more realistic and FUN version of Lend-Lease, Oil Rules, etc, etc, etc.

    ----The Historical Board Gaming crew are proving my prediction that:

    GLOBAL WARFARE 1936-1939 is the FUTURE of all Axis & Aiies gaming!

    Here is a peek on what we are doing.
    Please!!!
    The Units have not been finalized, we are working every day on this. We look at unit, how it looks on the board, is it unique enough from the previous and following unit. We want them to be easily recognized and historical as much as we can and keep it playable.
    I repeat, they are not finalized.

  • Finalized or not, I buy them anyway  😄

    Very nice!


  • Coach,
    Those are awesome, looking forward to what time line and progression you will use for bombers, tanks, warships, artillery and the infantry.
    You haven’t even sold or created the first set of these yet, but  I am in on this one.  This looks like a possible Kickstarter cannidate.  😄 😄 😄 😄

    I thought Island Warfare was the first Global Expansion set coming.

    It was, but maybe they decided to do it later, and postpone it till the time is right. They obviously have a plan in place. 🙂


  • will it be a boxed game, or a map with expansions?

    It will be a map, in two sizes, with expansions to follow it. 😄


  • thanks

  • Would it be reasonable to expect a release date before Christmas 2014?

    No, Coach says maybe February, but more likely a little later. I’m sure when it gets closer to time, he will tell us. You are talking about the new map, right? 🙂


  • Alright thank you. I’ve saved up enough money to purchase global 1939, and was wondering if I should hold off for this map and i gladly will
