That sounds kind of fun and interesting, but it also supposes a Japanese invasion of Hawaii which wasn’t their intent. The attack on Pearl Harbor was only an air strike against US Air Bases and the Pacific Fleet. Japan had no plans for actually invading Hawaii, at least not at that point. Still an interesting idea.
What about a WW2 style Fortress America game? You could have Japan be the Western Invader, Germany the Eastern Invader and Italy the Southern Invader. Make it just like Fortress America where each player gets 60 units split up between Infantry, Artillery, Mech Inf, Tanks, Fighters, Tac Bombers and Bombers. America would also get Partisan reinforcements, perhaps represented by HBG Marine Infantry units, or the Marine Infantry from the old Pacific game if you have them. Heck, they could even be represented by the Light Grey Axis Minor Infantry since Partisan units in the new Fortress America game are grey. Another idea would be to use the Light Green Neutral Infantry from HBG. Even Chinese Infantry would work in a pinch.
Perhaps the Laser Complexes could be replaced by Atom Bombs. USA gets some sort of marker to represent an Atom Bomb base each turn, placed in a US controlled city, and they get so many Atom Bomb strikes per turn, depending on how many Atom Bomb Bases they have. When Invaders capture cities with A Bomb Bases, they destroy them immediately. A low-yield Atom Bomb would be enough to destroy 1 military unit and could possibly fail, thus the roll of the dice.
Perhaps the USA should also get AA Guns for defense. A certain number of AA guns in each city and only in cities and don’t count toward the 5 unit per territory limit. They act as normal AA guns in Global, up to 3 shots per gun or 1 shot per attacking aircraft, whichever is lower, and can be taken as casualties in defense. If you don’t like the Atom Bomb idea, perhaps AA guns could be the extra defense ability for USA. Each city starts with a certain number of AA guns, maybe 2, and each round USA gets a new AA gun to place in any city they still control. Again, AA guns would not count toward the 5 unit per territory limit.
its on his site. look it up.
Here is one of the threads on the subject.
Thanks. I’ve been reading the site a lot, but this thread is great. Again, thank you.
It’s amazing how players like Krieghund, Adlertag, and Imperious Leader got to help shape the AA50 game. If it were me, I’d be really proud of that. I’m really glad someone was pushing for Italy in the game. IMO it was one of those “About Time!” decisions.
Imagine the world map cut up into regions a la the A&A game board. You take turns moving resources, units, buying technologies, etc towards the objective of capturing opponents’ capital cities set in WWII. However, instead of rolling dice to determine conflicts as in A&A - you jump onto the battlefield and use the resources that were moved into the territory of conflict to play out a RTS battle. Being an A&A board game nut from my high school days AND a RTS fan, I absolutely consider it the best of both worlds.
Took it from Atari board.
.SICK!!!,i always tought of doing that,nice job guys@ atari
Or an American invasion map. The UK and Russia both lost to the axis powers. While fighting some smaller battles in Africa and the middle east, they now focus on taking over the Americas. With the only ally to be Argentina on the Americas mainland, they now face a coalition of the remaining American powers with the United States, Canada and Brazil as the most important ones.
A what if the Americans stayed out of the war, and the axis won scenario.
I like it.
It can even include a tech race for the bomb.
Sounds like Fortress America in 1940s
Hi! Im newbie in this forum but i have been reading for a long time. I have discouraged to post because I understand reading english well but I write it very badly. I’m from Barcelona and my languages are Spanish and Catalan
I like A&A a lot but in Spain there are not much tradition of board games and my A&A is obtained in english and of import in a specialist shop.
I have made a reprint of the board and I used a map made by Imperious Leader (thank to you for all your work!!!) but I also translated to Spanish all the locations and put the initial troops in it. I want to offer my version of the map to all the comunity and I also offer my help to Imperious Leader in any of the projects he always have in hands.
I also like to know if there are more people here that speaks Spanish.
Thanks to all members for that great forum! :lol:
well i speak spanish a bit
understand more than i can write tough but for basic communication there shouldn be biger problems i think, i was in Seville for a month so…
