👋 Introduce or Re-Introduce Yourself (Current)


  • @djensen An old player of the original game, back in the 80s when it first came out. Played it non-stop for a couple years at school, developed my own set of “Advanced A&A” rules which, sadly, I lost many years ago. Had a number of the ideas they incorporated into the later versions of the game, including The Bismarck (battleship that takes two hits to kill), paratroopers, etc. Anyway, post-school, barely played for many years (got hooked on Diplomacy PBEM for a while, played in the Worlds both online and FtF a couple years, and then, you know, life steps in…)

    Now my sons are grown and playing A&A with their friends, so I picked up the new version (G1940) and have played with them a bit. Still very much learning the intricacies of the new board, but enjoying it very much. Great discussions on this site, have helped me figure out the game much quicker than I would have otherwise - I don’t have the time to play and replay like I did the original!

    I am Major JSoto.

    I have played many many years of Allie’s and axis on the other website.

    However, there seems there is no body there to play with.

    I love playing $! either side works for me.

    up over and out!

  • Hi all. Name is Landon from Pittsburgh, PA. Just discovered this series a few months ago with 1941. I immediately got hooked and started looking up strategies and found that there were other editions of Axis and Allies that I had never heard off. With quarantine keeping me at home and looking for something to do, I bought both A&A Zombies and A&A Europe 2nd edition. Hoping to get Pacific soon. Still new to everything but excited to learn and develop new ways to play.

    Thanks to everyone on the Forum! You guys are the best!


  • anytime!

    I think that you’ve got some rocking ideas. I’m glad to see another shiny face, ready to conquer the world.

    That said, I might suggest trying out 1942 (preferably the Second Edition) before tackling the 1940 games (Europe 1940 and Pacific 1940). There are game concepts used in the 1940 games that are also in 1942 (such as Cruisers as naval units, Strategic Bombing to attack factories, naval gunfire support for amphibious landings, anti-aircraft guns, etc.). The difference is that if you go from 1941 and Zombies to the 1940 games, you will get hit with all the new concepts from 1942 and a bunch of new concepts that are only in the 1940s games (Mechanized Infantry (Infantry guys, now in trucks or half-tracks, so they can keep up with the tanks), Tactical Bombers, Convoy Raiding, etc.). Having to figure out everything all at once might be a bit much.

    All I’m saying is that the pool is very, very deep in places and you might be better served by trying the 10 foot section of the pool before going straight to the 40 foot, diver trial, section of the pool.

    My 2 IPCs anyways,

  • @Midnight_Reaper Thanks for the advice! I’ll definitely look into getting 1942 soon.


  • Hello everyone. I had introduced myself before, but had to redo my account, and it got deleted I guess.
    I am from Missouri. I have been playing Axis and Allies for a few years now. I only recently started trying to get better at strategy. I usually play with my brother, but sometimes with a friend too. I have only played A&A 1942, but just got the 1940 global and am excited to play that. I haven’t done much with customizations or house rules, but would like to eventually.


  • @J-o-C Lots of Game veterans in here Boyo. Ask away. Plenty of strats to bounce off of. If you havent taken a look at the custom jobs give it a look see. Its incredible.


  • Thanks, I definitely will.


  • Hey all. I’m from Minneapolis and I started playing Classic in the late 90s/early 2000s and fell in love with it. I played a ton of that, the old Xeno Games World at War, and some A&A Europe. Quit playing for awhile and picked it up again about 6 years ago when I found Global 40, playing almost weekly ever since. I’ve played tons of that, the Naval Minis, the Global 1942 tournament game and recently I started playing HBG’s Global 36 game (which I love). While I’ve always preferred to play live (It’s the poker player in me), I’m open to playing new opponents online as well. I just haven’t posted on here because I’ve had multiple groups to play with. Always glad to talk shop or play A&A, so feel free to message me.

    Hi :)
    I come from Italy.
    I am used to playing with my community but i would like to have more opportunities to compare myself with other players using Triple A.
    I will need some help mainly because I have never played in “play by forum” mode but only by email (and MARTI server) .


  • @Avner Welcome to the forum :slightly_smiling_face:

    To start with TripleA look at some stickied threads in this category:
    https://www.axisandallies.org/forums/category/28/triplea-support
    In case of TripleA related questions just open a topic there, too.

    Search for other online players here:

  • Hey everyone,

    I live down in South Florida and have been an A&A for a little bit, picking up Revised way back when it was brand new and playing it to death (I still have every single piece). Things went quiet until recently when I got my hands on Global 1940 and discovered the HBG website last year. I’ve toyed with bumping things up with the 1936/1939 map but I’m having way too much fun with 1940 (and, considering the cost, i’d need to have a regular group to play with), experimenting with house rules and all that.

    While I’ve played 1940 off and on with some friends, I’m really hoping to find some more opponents here via the forum willing to play via e-mail/Discord using the actual board and pieces. It is a slightly slower but better experience for me.


  • @Channel_Three

    Here you can download TripleA (https://triplea-game.org/) which is a program that allows you to play online, trough pbem or just local (vs AI or friends that come over, without having to actually put up the board, fast and easy gameplay). I dont think you’ll find many players that are willing to play like you suggest, but hopefully for you there are some around. I suggest you try online gaming tough, because there is always someone around that is ready to play at any given time of the day.

    I hope you have fun playing and learn lots of new strategies and such. Btw with that program you can play almost any game there is available on the A&A genre and also other games like NWO, Domination, LOTR and much more. Good luck and have fun!
