• Hey, does anyone know anywhere i can get alternet rules or an expanstion for A&AE. I have seen some added realism rules for the original A&A but i didnt find any for A&AE


  • Try looking under
    I’m sure you can find some alternate rules there.

  • Oh kk thanks

  • Sure, no problem.

  • Well, was that enough?

  • Let us know which you like the best.

  • ya trashers site has a lot of stuff his and this one are the only ones I bookmark

  • Other than A&A.org and Dicey, that is the ONLY other A&A website I bookmark.

  • should make new thread, “what A&A sites do you bookmark?”

  • No, not really. :-?

  • already did 🙂

  • Guys i have been playing 3 nights a week for 6 years,and have tinkered with rules,to give a totally new twist on the game.Now bear with me because this is long and kinda extensive.
    1.first thing you do is give each ally 40ipc and each axis 60ipc,they right down on sheet of paper what they are buying and where it goes.it must go on area that nation controls and no buying ic.
    2.each country gets certain bonuses at start these are usa=1 free roll at tech breakthru at begining of their turn. russia=1 inf in russia at start of thier turn ,this unit may be used this turn. japan= a free transport,sub and fighter all in japan at start of game. britain=start out with aa guns that hit on a 1 or a 2 and fighters defend at a 5 this stays for entire game all future units of this type get these bonuses. germany=panzer tanks,germanys tanks cost 6 but get a +1 to all rolls.
    3.get a cup put a marker in it from each country these are drawn out at random each round so that turn order is always changing.
    4.we also play some set rules such as=2 hit battleships,if hit movement cut down buy one and its att is at a -1 / 2 hit carriers, if hit movement cut down by one and only one plane can land on it / aa guns can also be fired at tanks as anti tank guns ie… hit on a 1 one shot per tank, but cannot shoot at planes and tanks same turn must choose which /bombers can drop paratroopers up to 2 inf if bomber shot down inf lost / any added ic built in game ccan produce double the stated amount of country ie… india 6 etc… /

    5.we also play with some diff peices which can be bought or improvised/ mines cost 1 per can be placed on any one border, any ground unit passing over owner of mine will get to roll for each mine a 1 or 2 is a hit and 1 unit of att choice and 1 mine is destroyed/ leader= each country get a leader token who fights as an inf but gets 3 rolls each he only takes one hit though, if captured his country on their next turn must pay 10 ipc to buy him back and he is then placed in capital

    6.ok now here comes the complicated parts 😉

    you will need to get or make some business sized cards, one set will be labeled events the others actions
    ok 1st the events cards card1. write nothing on it 2. again nothing 3. ditto 4.bad weather(no splanes can fly and all ships and tanks can only move 1 spot) 5. fair weather )(all tanks ,planes ,and ships can move 1 extra space) 6.cease fire ( no attacks of any kind can be done this round only movement, buying etc) 7.disease,hunger,frostbite(each country rolls a 12 sided die for each inf unit they have if roll a 12 that unit is removed from game) 8.scientific breakthru(each nation writes down one tech advancement they want this turn at start of round, can be anything but enemy codes(we will discuss this in a sec) 9.rangers ,marines ,ss(each nation turns 3 inf units on their side to represent elite units these units get a +1 to att and def) 10.reshuffle( when this card is drawn all cards in discard pile are shuffled back into draw pile) 11. oil shortage(each nation must roll for every non inf unit if roll a 6 that unit cannot move this turn)(can defend if att though)12.push factory=you can push an ic if roll 1-3 gain 2 tanks roll 4-6 ic dstroyed,or u can decline do either if u choose, but must choose at beginning round.
    one of these cards is drawn at the beginning of each round

    ok guys sorry that was long and drawn out:( and might seem a lil overwhelming but trust me it works and every game is diff and exciting.
    play balance is pretty even, it just will take awhile to use all diff possibilities ie… additional purchased units at start and then how to play cards and then random turns

    it has taken me years to get all of this together so any comments or questions i would really apreciate.

  • Sounds like a good idea, But a little to complicated. Also, I wonder how long does it take to play a game? I am thinking, about a week!

  • we play alot of 3 person games with one person as allies and one as germans, the other japan. games usually last around 6 hours or so.It sounds alot more complicated than it really is, if overwhelmed then just try some of it.such as random turnd or pregame spending,or just event cards.
