Uh…hello. There is a global zombie war game called Zombie State. I’ve seen it and read some reviews. I’ve actually designed a pretty complicated Axis and Allies Zombies game using the Global 1940 maps. I use Fortress America infantry units for zombies as I don’t have any real specific Z sculpts. I’m afraid I made the rules so complicated that people might compare it to Cones of Dunshire. The Zs are pretty slow and certainly not unkillable. I combined the idea of supernatural undead springing up everywhere thanks to Hitler (he gets munched right off the bat and Admiral Donitz takes over what’s left of Germany) with some pandemic plagues. So some Zs can infect you while others just tear you limb from limb. If the players want to just beat on the Zombies they can unite and do that, or if they want to fight each other the Zs get exponentially tougher and rip into all of them. Like “nightmare” level in some computer games. I’ve been working on it for a few years on and off. Max Brooks World War Z novel and the Harry Turtledove Balance novels were a good inspiration for this kind of thing. Let me know if you’re still interested in this game concept. There is actually someone who started this a few years back with the old A and A Classic map and some fun ideas for introducing Zs into WW2, but I’ve always preferred bigger maps and lots of different unit types.
Axis And Allies (Milton Bradley Version): House Rules.
Attached is a Link to a word doc with the rules a group of Canucks made up over 6 years of constant weekend gaming.
I figure these may have a place here because our view of how the game should be played was 100% opposite of what Avalon hill brought in.
Battleships were not made 2 hits because quite frankly, by WWII battleships are a useless relic and people stopped making new ones. They should die easily to planes, WWII was about carrier navies.
We also did not make each nation have to fight the way they did in WWII. We know how that battle worked out. The point of Axis and Allies was to see how the war could have turned out differently if people acted differently (in our eyes that was the point).
You could have Russian Kamikazee planes, Super heavy Japanese Tanks, etc
The rules are listed with a “why” section next to them you so you can follow our logic.
Do people have to register to savefile.com? If your rules and such aren’t that big, could you just cut and paste them into the post directly?
No, and 7 pages.
Sorry old chap that looks like some spam site… I guess we will never find out how good those rules actually are… oh well.
Savefile is up there with Photobucket. It really surprises me you’ve never used it before considering it takes no registration to upload or download.
Well, looking at it at least 7 of you have started downloading so I guess some of you are in fact seeing how good the rules are.
Well i hope they will grace us with the bounty of wisdom contained in them.
