Out of curiosity, is Table 2 a duplicate of Table 1 or is it designed for a different game map? It occurs to me that if the two tables are identical, this could allow you to experiment with some interesting house rules for concealed-unit / concealed-movement games in which the Axis players use one table and the Allies use the other table, with a screen between them and a referee serving as the go-between.
Thats possible CWO for the split game.
2nd table will be used for play testing same game, trying new house rules, playing a different game and teaching any new players. This way there’s no pressure for new players and can come back and play when we want.
I am still hopin to set up a 3rd table because I have 2 other games I would like to set up and leave without taking down games all the time.
Yes it is great to have the room. I did take down my 20 x 35 foot train layout to do this. I still could run tracks all the way around on outside of whole basement. I still have a main yard in small room. Tracks are still there in each end to come out of room.
What really sucks but doesn’t now is that a friend showed me the 80’s Axis and Allies game 4 years ago, so I’ve only been playing 4 years now. I can’t believe I never came across this game ( 54 years old now ). I used to invent some tank battle games just putzin around. Now I can’t get enough of the Axis and Allies games.
Plus also make a 3 x 6 foam board with complete scenery just like a train layout and have some kind of small battles over forts or bridges and forts using the axis and allies pieces. All ground and planes.
Sorry Crus !!!
