Updated Rulebook Posted


  • Official Q&A

    The updated Rulebook has been posted on the Avalon Hill Rules Page.



  • Thank you sir! Is this updated with all of the errata included? Thanks!


  • Official Q&A

    Yes, it includes all of the errata and FAQs.  However, it does not include the additional optional rules, so you’ll still need to reference the FAQ document for those.



  • Thank you, it will help me for official clarification.
    Is there any interceptor and escorting planes for bombing or it’s just an optional custom rule ?

    @Natneo:

    This and “Dardanelles Closed” are the optional rules to be found in the official FAQ.

    See https://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=35201.msg1369932#msg1369932



  • Ok  i see thank you.
    Do you think the game is better balance between axis and allies with « closing Dardanelles » and fun ; or it’s useless ?



  • A must for the allies to stand a chance of winning. The Turkish strait has got to be closed! The Italians can do a commando landing in the Caucasus and kill off a few Soviet pieces then the Germans go and finish off the Caucasus before the Soviets go again. Totally a necessary rule! The scramble and escort rule works too as the U.S. and Brits can bomb Germany time after time with just the antiaircraft “1” rolls to fear!

    Completely agree on the Turkish strait. It’s mandatory as far as I’m concerned.

    I’m not sold either way on the escort rule, but I do think it mainly helps Germany. That can be good if the skill levels between players aren’t similar.

    I wonder if that actually balances the game though…If the Allies can bomb Germany out, wouldn’t that make it easier for Russia to defend their advances? I personally just bought the game and am playing my first game with strictly rules that are in the rulebook, so i guess I’ll see for myself. But just curious if anyone else feels that straights being open really does break the game?

    If you play by the book on this option, incoming StBs and escorting Fg submit to AA gun fire, then to intercepting Fighter defending @2.
    StB have no attack roll, only escorting Fg A1.
    No real piece of cake for D6 damage on IC, if Germany put 2 Fighters as deterrent.
