DK's Hybrid Axis and Allies Map and Rules

    OK I guess I just overreacted about it then - never mind…

    This last ones is a little change on Gilbert Island.
    If 1942 is the starting date, Gilbert Islands were invaded at the same time as Pearl Harbor Raid.
    To be consistent, this have to be corrected.

    It is same as my precedent picture in PTO.

    The most interesting basis is about Iwo Jima sharing the same SZ as Japan.
    Capturing Iwo Jima allows US escorting Fighters against Japan to be launched and landed in this island.

    And I duplicated this feature somehow with Vancouver Island placed in between 2 SZs :
    SZ64 and SZ55, and if captured, allows Japan to launch Fighters from this island into West USA or Western Canada.

    These islands in various Pacific SZs clearly showed how Japan may try to put in place an Outer Defense Perimeter.
    Also, USA can do an effective Islands hopping from Hawaii toward Gilbert Islands, Marshall Islands and Marianas.
    Or directly from Hawaii toward Marianas to capture a way point to launch bombers on Japan.

    These islands in PTO SZs allows the possibility to work in a similar way as it was done in WW2.

    Finally, I’m adding an other SZ in North Pacific.

    That way, Wake Island stay further away from Japan but same distance from Midway or Hawaii.
    So, Bombers landing in Wake would not be able to SBR Japan from this position but need to land on either Iwo Jima or Marianas.

    IMO, this would be the most enlarged map to keep within level of 1942.2 game and not going too much toward Pacific 1940 SZs.

    Don’t remember - that sounds right, though.

    @Imperious:

    Why these are more important than Hainan, for instance?


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer 2014 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    Not one or the other: both are important

    and Ceylon with naval base, British naval based there

  • DK,

    I love your work!  Hope to see more of it.

    I’ve managed to get your 1.1 map and your 7.3 rules downloaded, but cannot get the mediafire link to your 7.3 charts and new pieces file to work.  Is there any chance that you could e-mail it to me?  Please send it to doug#pearson#31415 - at - gmail -dot- com  (omit the '#'s).

    This seemed to be the only way to get hold of you.  Sorry if this was not the proper method.
    Many Thanks!

    Doug ‘Bowser’ Pearson
