Okay aa50 can take 2-10+ hours. Global can take 6 hours to a few days.
The longest aa50 game I had lasted 32 hours because Germany was on the brink of losing, had a miracle defense against UK USA attack… Hit improved artillery with 1 tech roll that has been going for a long time suddenly has enough to kill south europe, survives another UK all in blast. Meanwhile Japans 30 tanks 5 bombers dies to Russia 25 inf 2 USA fighter (5 aa gun hits) the Game that refused to end.
So global just takes long where as aa50 if it takes long it is because the game ending battles failed.
This game is alright. Although I’m almost scared to play the damn thing. The gaming components were subpar in many respects IMHO. I’ve heard the production of this game were in the low thousands. When I bought the game just after it’s relaese it was almost out of stock pertty much everywhere I looked.Â
Weird, I thought the gaming components were/are the best out of ANY stock A&A game.
The parts were a little shoddy, white speckles on some pieces, not nearly as bad as AARE with bends and flash on the plastic. It wasn’t horrible and it was the only copy I could get my hands on anyway. It doesn’t really matter all that much anyway. Spring 42 and 42SE redeemed thier quality IMHO.
