The War Game - Massive Axis and Allies Variant



  • Field Marshals:
    Do they add +1 to your units’ die rolls or subtract -1 from the die rolls???
    If they add +1 to your die roll how can that help?
    The rules says +1 to your die roll???
    Don’t you want low die rolls??

    Neutrals??
    Are the neutrals garrisoned with their own troops at the beginning of the game?

    Do they defend with their own troops/units or do they only get that one roll referred to in the rules on p23?

    So if the attacker attacks with more than 1 unit he always takes the neutral country right?
    Becz the defender only gets one die roll??

    Confused! Help?

    BB’s repaired??
    I can’t understand the BB repair rules?
    Are there 2 different ways to repair a BB?
    What does location have to do with rolling a d-12 die?
    Does the location change the roll result needed???

    Defender retreat??
    Can the defender retreat at any time?
    How is it done? Just announce which units are retreating and they can not fire?
    They only take hits after the rear guard takes the hits?

    Lend lease between Germany and Italy??
    Can Germany lend lease to Italy?

    Combined arms?
    Is there a combined arms rule which rewards diversified attacks?



  • Going to play our 1st game on Saturday.

    Any common misperceptions/errors?

    The rules says +1 to your die roll?HuhHuh?
    Don’t you want low die rolls??

    They benefit you on defense or attack, so a unit hitting at 4 is now a 5.

    Neutrals??
    Are the neutrals garrisoned with their own troops at the beginning of the game?

    no these are optional and if anybody attacks THEN you set them up

    Do they defend with their own troops/units or do they only get that one roll referred to in the rules on p23?

    They defend like anything else

    So if the attacker attacks with more than 1 unit he always takes the neutral country right?
    Becz the defender only gets one die roll??

    Confused! Help?

    I dont play with that rule. Never have

    BB’s repaired??
    I can’t understand the BB repair rules?
    Are there 2 different ways to repair a BB?
    What does location have to do with rolling a d-12 die?
    Does the location change the roll result needed???

    a damaged BB you roll a d12 for cost of damage. If its light damage you can repair at sea, if heavy you need to go to port. read rules on this for more.

    Defender retreat??
    Can the defender retreat at any time?
    How is it done? Just announce which units are retreating and they can not fire?
    They only take hits after the rear guard takes the hits?

    you declare whats retreating before first round, on second round you retreat the units allocated and they are not rolling on the round they were declared. The attacker must ask for retreat declarations before combat starts. At sea you can block retreats by having one ship in each adjacent SZ. If the units defending only last one round any factories are considered captured and cant be what we call “crunched”

    Lend lease between Germany and Italy??
    Can Germany lend lease to Italy?

    no its not in the rules

    Combined arms?
    Is there a combined arms rule which rewards diversified attacks?

    no. only what we call “rommels rules” in which tanks aid infantry in attack and infantry aid tanks in defense.



  • are there set up charts for neutrals???



  • @Constantinople:

    are there set up charts for neutrals???

    Yes, but you will have to find your own white flags for the swedish units



  • I wonder:  :?

    Larry Harris says the new board size(s) will be huge!!  😄
