Love the minis from 1941. As for me 1941 was basically an “Expansion pack” I have one copy I leaved sealed in the plastic and one for everyday use as well as extra OOB minis from HBG. I call 1941 a flop because it along with 1914 has received some reviews in the gaming world that were not favorable. 1941 is go for teaching people to play BUT I think Classic or Revised does just as well or better. Additionally when I’ve used 41 to teach I had real chips and paper or poker chips for money.
Now I don’t think this was a terrible game but it’s at a price point where for a few dollars more you could just buy 42SE. When it first came out you could buy surplus Spring 42 for around $20 and with either purchase receive a much value per dollar.
None of that mattered I own two to five copies of each A&A Edition except D-Day, AA50 and Bulge which I only have one each. Never had AAE40.1 or AAGC.
I’m not trying to be harsh I just think A&A is about to go on hiatus for a bit and I think D-Day is one of those classics we won’t see again as a second edition.
Tolerone, I do think your correct about it, but it is so fresh for me, because I didn’t grow up with it like a lot of you, that everything is exciting for me, LOL.
I just started collecting, a little over a year ago, so I’m still quite new to the experience, but yet it came out when I was in high school, but some how I didn’t hear about till 2009, when I bought the Anniversary edition.
I never played it, till fall of 2013, because I couldn’t get anyone in my home town to play a strategy board game.
It is still that way now. The only time I can play is if I travel and driving is not as fun as it used to be for me, so I mainly collect and now paint, which I thought I never would.
Never say never, because it will bite you every time, LOL.
