Iï¿½ll like some feedback one 9 charts, but how do i insert them in this tread??
In order to prevent spam on the forums… there is a minimum amount of posts a member must have in order to share pictures, links, or files. I think it’s 10 or more, but if you private message imperious leader, he may lift the restriction for you.
Looking forward to seeing your charts.
I guess if I was in your position, I would use classic game pieces for the new countries:
Old Germans are gray I think, they could be Italians, Old Russians would be good for Anzac. Old UK for India, Old U.S. for China, France could be old Japanese or Fortress America Southern Invaders.
France seldom builds units, in fact all you really need are some infantry for later African moves. Tactical bombers if you do not care could be fortress America bomber pieces, use some helicopters for smaller countries if they need any.
I rarely see many tactical bomber builds. Maybe Russia, and America might build some. Carriers and destroyers are built a lot in my games. Since transports are non combatants in 1940, just use transports as Destroyers, I rarely build cruisers, so just use a battleship with a penny underneath it as a cruiser. Just use paper to represent transports. Not sure if this is a good idea, but mechanized units can be risk pieces or even monopoly houses…
Just a few tips with not too much insight. Hope this helps.
That was precisely my thought, McLovin. I feel, at this point in time, Germany needs a method to produce warships in the Med. If one allows Italy to take S. France, this - essentially - means that Germany has to build a complex in Yugoslavia. This may be a good idea in the long run anyway, making it a little easier to reinforce the south against Russia. (OOB this could be a major complex, Alpha 2 I do not think it can.)
I feel an Airbase would be nice to accompany the complex in Yugoslavia, if you go this route, since then you can put 6 fighters in the air for cover air patrol. But again, if you have S. France, I think you would not need this. (Little harder since you have to build Italy in one zone and Germany in another instead of combined, but much cheaper.)
Good morning! After about 7 years since I last played Global (Alpha 2?), I’m hoping to get a game starting with a friend. I’ve dusted off my old set, and computer folder of resources and aids, but it appears there have been a lot of developments, and I’m having trouble getting up to speed. I’ve return to the Boards here to ask for help. Below are some of questions:
1. Does “G40.2” refer to the Global rules in the Pacific Second Ed. rulebook?
2. What is the current/latest version of Global 1940 rules and setup?
3. Is there a new version or revision planned?
4. What resources should I download before playing; are there definitive FAQs or modified rules?
5. Is there anything else I should know, or be asking?
2. See https://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=28703.0
4. Latest rulebooks and FAQ are linked here: https://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=28703.0
5. Just come back in case of further questions.
See my thread about balance. Called repect: http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=20622.0
As for balance, no one can say it is or isn’t so lets to come up with strategies rather than pointing fingers.
