Mechanized Warfare's A&A Revised memory challenge!!



  • I was bored the other day and I decided to set up my A&A board just for the hell of it.  Rather than using the nation cards as guides to set up, I tried doing it by memory.  Miraculously I only made 7 mistakes setting up the whole board (3 of which were with Germany, go figure.)  So I figured this would be a cool challenge for the people here at the A&A forum.

    Try setting up your A&A board by memory, without practicing for it at all.  When you are done, check to see your mistakes.  Post your mistakes here on the forum (to check if anyone made the same ones).  If you didnt make any mistakes, then you can brag about it (that means you Switch!!  😉)

    Here are my results:

    Germany 3 mistakes: I added 1 too many armor in Eastern Europe and 1 too many infantry in the Balkans.  Also I didnt give the Balkans its required armor unit.

    Japan 2 mistakes: I forgot the SZ60 trn and also put 1 more infantry in Borneo than what I was supposed to.

    UK 2 mistakes: I forgot the AA gun in the UK (how are they supposed to protect themselves from a nazi air onslaught!!?)  I also added 1 more infantry in UK than what I was supposed to.

    Well hope to see if you guys pass the memory test with flying colors.  Also hoping you guys make some boners (not that kind).  :lol:



  • I haven’t looked at the cards in AGES….

    …the only nation in my mind that is in any way difficult is Germany…and even then it’s just remembering which territories have 3 INF and which have only 2.

    So…I made no mistakes…do I win a prize?  :lol:



  • Got it except for some of Germany’s western territorries. I think this is similar to how chess masters can remember entire game. You don’t just memorize territories and what’s on them, you use the purpose you’ve had for the units during games as mnemonic devices. Which explains why germany is so hard, since I just blob all of those units together in eastern e.



  • I’ve been doing it without mistakes for I would estimate 10 months out of the 1 year I’ve played A&A.  :mrgreen:

    That of course doesn’t make me special or necesarily good at the game  :roll:



  • I used to set up clasic without the cards and revised i normaly do without the cards and then check with the cards.
    Normaly only a few minor mistakes.

    Might be more fun to make a different competion. Name a country and the guy below should list the troops there and then name the next country 😄



  • OK, I won’t brag…

    But my cards have dust on them 😛

    jeez hows that for a showoff 😉



  • It is most of the time harder to recollect a single country then to recite them all at once.
    You usualy used to setting up in a specific order so you remember that order verry well but a different question like a specific order will be harder.

    Also now we dont have a challenge anymore since everything is posted here.

    Yea I usually set up nation by nation navy –> airforce --> land



  • No one caught that I left off the SZ55 ships for the US 😛

    Damn.  I knew it as soon as I entered it, but had to get in the shower (was still almost late for work typing that this morning).  Figured SOMEONE would ahve slammed me for it today 😄
