Global War -1936-1939-1942


  • Customizer

    Guys

    @John:

    @knp7765:

    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.
    **––It’s my guess that HBG might be changing the units included in their
    “Island Warfare” set. I hope it might now include an
    APD “Fast Attack Transport”, too. We’ll know soon enough.
    ----I learned long ago to be patient with HBG and simply be happy
    (read ECSTATIC!) with the products that they’re able to bring to the market, whenever they are able to do so.

    Tall Paul**



  • Will there be a supplement set similar to the one for the current global 1939?



  • Where can the most recent rules for Global '39 be found?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Go to main menu, and then go under the sub menu of Global Warfare. Then you want to go to the thread that says rules 7.2 and 7.1 and go to the second post of that thread. There is a link for the latest rules there.

    I would provide you link, but don’t know how to do that.

    I hope that helps! 🙂

    Thank you. In the end I found it by googling it. I have to admit they are very hard to find. Maybe it’s an idea for HBG to place the most recent version on BGG and on Axis and Allies.org in an easy to find place.

    Normally they do, but this was never finalized. otherwise, it would be on BGG and axisandallies.org, by now.

    Hmm. Not finalized, but they are selling it? (the map that is). Strange.

    They try to revise it and make it better and more balanced, every once in awhile. Take for instance, the first edition of the 1940 game, people complained it wasn’t balanced and that is why a second edition came along.

    This game is no different, they are just trying to make it better by revising it. 🙂

    Wild Bill, I think it was bumped to this Summer. I could be wrong, but I thought I heard Coach say it. Maybe, he can confirm it, for us.

    Summer,
    We are using another Artist and went back to simplify the rules.

  • Very well then



  • yeah, we don’t mind to wait as long as the final product is high quality  🙂

    Catching up on this project myself, but am I correct in assuming this is the Second Edition of Global War?

    If previous estimates were correct this should be coming out in about a month or so. Any ideas when the rules will be released? Looked around on the website but couldn’t find anything. Again, I am assuming a free pdf download on the rules as before.

    This is the second edition of global war. I think this comes out at the end of summer, if I remember what Coach told me.

    When the map comes out, I think the rules will come with it. 🙂

    HBG Continues to work on the rules and map, both are coming along, slow but steady. Playtesting and corrections with attention to detail. We are shooting for a Fall release.

    Thanks Coach. Better slow than never. Looking forward to the end product.

    So this is the thread I saw stuff on… Must have gotten buried. Thanks for the update Wild Bill.



  • Read the rules. Generally happy with what I see. Greatly simplified in the right places (e.g. no more US dud torpedoes) while some optional complexity is added in others (terrain rules).

    One thing I really do miss, however, is the inability to retreat for the defender?? Was that decision made simply for reasons of added playing time?
