Grasshopper's 2nd G40 Invitational (2020)



  • The dead shall rise again and from the shadows, THE FLUFF SHALL RETURN…



  • WOW!… back from the dead, you missed an amazing event in your own back yard brother. I hope you and the family are well, it’s been way to long.

    It’s been too long brother, i followed your tournament and your you tube videos for a while now from the shadows… AMAZING and I wish I could have been there but I will be at the next one in 2019. Now… to get the rust out. It’s been a nearly 5 year hiatus and I have one HELL of an itch to scratch…

    Family is good man, went through a separation a few years back, met someone got married, another baby (3 boys now, 2,4 and 6 and definitely future players) bought a house, finished 2 degrees and currently sitting a thesis short of my masters degree working 2 jobs and coaching kids soccer… Going to add a trip to the bunker for a refresher game with you to this list hopefully very soon. I hope things are well with you…

    And now… HERE COMES THE FLUFF



  • @Enigmatic_Decay:

    And now… HERE COMES THE FLUFF

    Just so you know… pocket fluff only attacks at 2 or less now, but it gets boosted to 3 when paired with a Canadian penny.

    Great to see you back… email me and we’ll get you a game.

    Thanks brother, it’s great to be back and let’s face it, I need to make sure that gargantua not only has a challenge on the board but on the forums with his “villain status” as well lol his tournament results were damn impressive…

    Ahhhh yes but you forgot that the pocket fluff paired with the legendary Canadian penny attacks at a 5 or less if you: do a war dance, followed by spinning around 3 times, eating half a bag of Cheetos, saying the alphabet backwards watching 3 reruns of MASH on the slow fast forward where they sound like the chipmunks and doing your taxes prior to combat… (at least my fluff hits at 5 or less after all that)

    Good stuff, I am going to task grasshopper with getting me back into game shape by the time October 2019 rolls around as it’s been some time since I’ve even looked at a board but my October and November work schedules are a little lighter so I will make sure we can get a game in.



  • Ooooo dogy, how I miss the fluff banter… I just put your name on the roster.



  • Don’t forget that I only pay 14 for carriers hahahahaha

    Good, I am there for sure, following your tourney online the one thing I have to say is… YOU NEED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE NEXT ONE…
    I might not have been there but I followed it ALL and I love your token idea, that is seriously the best innovation that I’ve ever seen at A&A in my 22 years of playing. You put in so much amazing work for the tourney and everyone loved it. I hope to be in a position that I can help out a lot for the next. Whether it’s picking up people from the airport or helping them connect to a hotel or just helping you with organization. Keep up the amazing work and dedication to this game we all love brother, YOU ARE AN ABSOLUTE LEGEND…

    I’d like to pitch in to increase the talent and participant pool for 2019.

    Guys like wittmann and cow, etc, way too many to name. I want them all to come!!!

    If the local Toronto participants are willing to billet and house, I will help however I can with flight costs where I can.  Putting in $100 or $200 etc to bring in some of my favourite A&A.org members would be my pleasure.  If everyone does thier part, however small, anything is possible; and our event is that much better for it.

    My personal dream would be to match HBG for donations value, in terms of pulling talent from across the globe.

    I will galvanize the Toronto A&A community and do everything we can, lots of ideas from now until than… we will make it all happen as much as possible… now lets see some early names in the hat.



  • Not sure if I am missing something, I saw the video you made YG today, so how does Calcutta fit into a token and which one?



  • @Leatherneckinlv:

    Not sure if I am missing something, I saw the video you made YG today, so how does Calcutta fit into a token and which one?

    So the new Axis token called “Asia” demands control of the Burma Road… Calcutta is connected by the Burma Road, therefore, you must control Calcutta to achieve the “Asia” token, and you must control the Burma Road to Control Calcutta. Calcutta helps achieve the Burma Road, controlling the Burma Road includes control of Calcutta (also known as India).



  • Put my name in the hat! The “A” Division. I would love to talk some of my regulars into going. . . I know, I have 2 years to work on them
    S.A.

    The competition in the “Specialists” division should be suicidal… are your boys up for it? I’m quite comfortable in the Enthusiast division… I’ve never claimed to be a great player, and I know I would get eaten alive among the specialists.



  • Hmm… I’ll have to mark the calendar, and start being extra nice to the wife. Lol


  • 2019 2017

    I’m in!



  • Thats the only way I can get better is to play the best. So we’ll have to see what my teammate thinks
    S.A.


  • 2017 '16 Customizer

    I’m in for sure, also again happy to help out with this/that…. as for division, I’ll stay same… maybe in two years I’ll change my mind and want to rematch :)… I’ve got one year of g40 under my belt now… maybe I’ll be more deadly with 3 years 🙂



  • AXIS “ASIA” TOKEN HAS BEEN MODIFIED!
    Asia
    -The Axis control Hong Kong, Shanghai, Malaya, and Calcutta
    (FOW) *Japan



  • Im guessing it replaces the Burma road one?

    This gives Japan more insentive to jump on Malaya



  • I think Malaya is one of the most important territories on the Pacific side of the map. Honestly it gives the owner great naval range, and a forward staging base for attacks on Calcutta, Australia, the Middle East, and even South Africa.



  • @Hunter:

    Correct, they no longer need the Burma road, just the 4 territories listed.



  • @Requester45:

    Agreed, it also slows them up if they have plans of slicing straight for Calcutta while staying neutral.



  • YG, we have not yet played your house rules, however I think we may give them a go this week for some trial games. We are use to taking several meetings to complete a game, and your system obviously corrects this problem. Right now we are currently in the middle of a new table build, in which we are going to add new features to our table. Our old table is nice, it just doesn’t accommodate our intensity of game-play now. If there are any amateur players who are reading this, and may need a nicer table to play on to get your AA game elevated please feel free to PM me and I can discuss with you the older custom AA board of mine.



  • I’d love to come to the next one, if I can find the time/money…did most people stay in a hotel?


  • 2019

    Hey Calvin! How are you? Most guys stayed in a hotel but there were a few of us including me who stayed in an Airbnb.  I had a fantastic time! I was there for four nights and the trip cost me ballpark around $1,200.  Including flight ticket, Airbnb room, food, car rental, fuel, etc.  Hope all is well
