    @Karl7:

    Be sure to post pictures…

    Pics have been few and far between on the Blog lately, sorry. I’m finding it hard to even edit the podcast these last few weeks but I’ll try harder. If you want all the pics that I’ve taken you should follow us on Twitter @dicetruction. Shameless plug I know but I’ll throw in another Twitter address that you’ll love (not by me but everyone on this site should open a Twitter account just for this account. It’s called WW2 Tweets from 1941 @RealTimeWWII it follows along through the war  day to day with articles and photos from during the war. Awesome account.

    @BJCard:

    Tried playing a game of Anniversary a couple months ago.  Seemed way too simple after playing the amazing game that Global 1940 is.

    That being said, hopefully the 1942 setup of Global will get better and allow for a faster game start.

    Just give it a once over, it’s essentially the same as 1942 with a couple extra rules for developments and such

    @Most:

    Global has a great deal of structure in the first few rounds, boring for USA and Russia for the first couple hours. It’s a great game but Anniversary is much better. Quite a few more options.

    Yes, Global is scripted, but I love all the units and sweep of the game.

    You guys at Dicetruction kill me. When I used to live in Idaho, I had a buddy who I used to stay up all night with playing A&A variants we created.  We often polished off a 24 pack of Natty Light and then tap into some Carlo Rossi. (Hard to believe now how we could drink that shitt) Needless to say, around 1am the game would go weird places.  The variant we had was based on the World at War by Xeno, an A&A knock off.  I was going to adapt the variant to the Global map.  If I ever get it done I’ll post it on the site.

  • If you are not there who will keep Ray’s turns to under 1 hour? Does that mean this entire episode is just one of Ray’s turns?


  • Customizer

    Hey on your yard sale find, I’m betting those pieces are from a game called ‘Attack!’ from Eagle Games.

    LOL yeah you should. I’ve been listening to you guys play 1914 while painting and sealing some old Fortress America pieces. I have another “scrap” game called Attack!, the guys have square bases and the sculpts have a lot of flash. If that’s what you have they’d be good for neutrals if you don’t have HBG’s.

    Episode 78 sees the end of our 1st shot at this cool new game. Hope you enjoyed listening to all 14 rounds.

    I’ve got the HBG guys all painted but Ray needs some for his Global. That’s a good idea, I’ll let him know. Thanks for listening.



  • I remember that game Attack!, it was fun but a little too simplistic

    Ooops I almost forgot, those figs were great! I love your style man.
    When you talked about your hero units I painted a Red Baron helo from Fortress America just for shits-and-giggles. Anyway, your classic series inspired me to paint my beat up veteran Classic set from 1994. That game you guys played was total freakin’ anarchy! if I’m ever in Canada we’ll have to play a game…I’ll bring the Coors the real thing not light LOL.

    Awesome, glad to inspire you, it’s a vicious circle. Ray’s painted pieces were what inbspired me and then mine inspired him to do a better job on his. Here’s a pic of the pieces that came with his garage sale find.

    Episode 96
    Finally! Sorry about the delay folks, I’ve been very busy and hope to get back on our schedule of every Friday releasing an episode. I’m hoping that we can get some time in to play before the new year as we need to record episode 100 or else I’m going to have to use a file I’ve had banked for a long time and you don’t want to hear that one as it was recorded on my iPhone.

    Anyway here’s round 3 of the tournament rules for A&A 1914, enjoy
