First look and play at the game at Greg Smorey’s Spring gathering. I was Russia.
The CP decided on a three way march to attack Russia. We only got 3 turns in, but I saw enough of the game to know I’d like to buy it.
I did buy a fighter Russia 1 (after Austria bought 1) and it did help against the german hordes when I managed air superiority for 1 round.
Dave, great teaming with you. (Dave was France and UK).
I do think for tournament play the game needs at least 6 hrs.
I might paint my pieces, but only in national colours. Being able to identify a unit is more important than authentic camouflage or uniform colour.
However I prefer a muted mat finish, with dry-brushed weathering effects added on. A custom board will determine if I keep the official colour scheme - the Great East Prussia Question may well determine that.
Hypothetical question: If the attack resolution rules for 1914 were the same as the other A&A games, which current first moves would you change and why…for example, I would change my opening moves by AH to build up forces to attack Italy first and just build up a force in Galicia rather than attack Venice and Poland…I would still have to attack Serbia, but I would hold off on Albania…
@Patchman123 I think that the szs should be either
ankara, sevastopol+rum and constantinople+bulg
Constantinople+Ankara+bulgaria, Sevastopol+romania (this way i think it is in oob)
The one for bulgaria+romania is unnecessary. Ottoman fleet, while exposed should be able to protect either Constantinople and Ankara at the same time or separately.
