  • Dagon81,
    Excellent addition to A&A50!
    I was reading through your explanation expounding on the rules book and noticed that on page 4 Free France the part about Free French tokens isn’t completed in that the dice roll is not included. From you post:
    ** Whenever a non-occupied territory joins (through diplomacy) the Allies (Free France) /or is captured you place one Free French token on that territory. The more of these tokens on the board, the higher the probability other territories (and their units) join the Allies through diplomacy: At the end of each round you roll one die for each non-occupied Vichy territory and these join the Allies on a roll of the same value or lower than the number of tokens on the board.**
    Please try to add this in your rules page.
    Another thought I had was regarding Vichy France and the set up on page 5. The thought was that some French units remain in France as defenders similar to the French Navy units. Maybe half the force remains intact following the German invasion like 3 infantry, and 1 artillery, and one fighter. As the game progresses these units are able to be used by the German player that is if France isn’t liberated or they are destroyed in combat.
    Please give these some thoughts. It would be appreciated if you could incorporated them into your manual.
    Thanks,
    A fellow A&A enthusiast


  • There was one i remember that had a typo, it was fixed?


  • @Imperious-Leader
    The pages that I was able to download weren’t updated.

    Is there an updated version that I’m unaware of?

    Thanks.

    I want to repeat how intriguing this A&A Expansion is. I can see a lot of thought and work went into them. Not to take away from your work but to enhance it.

    First this part of France on pages 4 & 5 needs to include the part explaining the dice roll and the French units joining the Free French specifically the portion blocked off below.

    France is non playable, either Vichy France or the Free French Forces. Vichy French units just defend their territories on land battles and whenever an amphibious assault takes place from the sea zone with their sea units. Whenever a non-occupied territory joins (through diplomacy) the Allies (Free France) /or is captured you place one Free French token on that territory. The more of these tokens on the board, the higher the probability other territories (and their units) join the Allies through diplomacy: [At the end of each round you roll one die for each non-occupied Vichy territory and these join the Allies on a roll of the same value or lower than the number of tokens on the board.]
    Joining the Allies means you can change the units for either US or UK equivalent units. The IPC income of these territories goes to the UK if its French West Africa or Madagascar. The occupied territories of France or Morocco-Algeria don’t join the Allies through diplomacy; these territories have to be captured.

    Second a Seabase and more units (possibly a second infantry unit, and an artillery unit) could be added to the setup table of the Madagascar territory.

    Historically Madagascar was an island that was fought over defended by the Vichy French for the harbor at the northern tip of Madagascar. According to Wikipedia Imperial Japan wanted to occupy this for a naval base of operations and cutting off the Allies to the Indian Ocean.

    I hope you are able to update the A&A Expansion manual, and incorporate my recommendations.

    Thanks


  • “All the cards you need” for all versions, by Expanding the Anniversary Upgraded version:
    I have made some extra cards by editing these beautiful cards on my computer. These are shown in two pdf files, with the National Advantages of every version of Axis and Allies, but also for the Technologies of every version. Basically a complete book that includes all the cards and secondly a guide highlighting the similar cards between the different versions of the game. In the following links:
    The Cards Book (pdf): https://www.dropbox.com/s/jknfsfavp8hvoqb/A%26A-The Cards Book.pdf?dl=0
    The Cards Guide (pdf): https://www.dropbox.com/s/8gqpoae6fdaxdm7/A%26A-The Cards Guide.pdf?dl=0
    Note that many cards between editions depict the same theme or have the same title, but have different text depending on the edition, since usually the same National Advantages or Technologies have a different description in each edition’s rules. But many are identical and can be used in more than one version.


  • @always-wanderer awesome work, well done. Glad you kept the spirit of the original idea and used similar illustrations as well. Love those tech cards. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻


  • @dagon81 First of all, thanks for the perfect upgrade and the cards you made with such a creative spirit. A great gift for all of us. If you want to work with my ideas for an even better and homogeneous result, I can send you the original photos I used as a theme οn my cards.


  • @dagon81 I also have these extra cards that I created from yours in the same size, image format and quality as yours and they are just as ready to print. Perhaps more easily printable than the pdf.


  • I am including the links to print the extra cards shown above in normal size, Poker card size 2.5"×3.5" (63.5×89mm). “The Cards Guide” can also be used for even more printing savings. This way one can save costs by avoiding reprinting cards (jpg):
