Extra pieces needed to make this realistically playable

  • Customizer

    I recently bought 1914 and I’m planning to introduce to my gaming group, however I know the recent A&A games have been plagued with piece shortages. I severely dislike introducing new games with such obvious component deficiencies as I believe it biases new players against the game from the start. Short of buying a 2nd copy, what quantity of specific pieces for which countries would I need to pick up from the second hand market so that I won’t run out of them in 98% of games?

    Example:
    Germany
    5 infantry
    2 tanks
    2 fighters
    7 control markers

    Britain
    2 tanks
    2 fighters

    USA
    2 transports

    Etc.

    Thanks

    You need more UK infantry, and probably more extra US transports.

    Thanks for your input. Anything else?


  • You will need more chips for sure. If I am not mistaken all the dark red are used up just for the setup. I just purchased two orders worth from HGB a couple of days a go.

    I just ordered three sets of 30 chips each for only $6.00 total at historicalwargaming.com.  Should cover my deficiencies.


  • denfenitly need more German infantry


  • HBG has expansion sets for every power. I got a set for Germany and one for UK, and some extra chips including green ones to represent 3 units, and i haven’t had any issues.
