Welcome CraneDeNicollo. My friend got me started on Global 1940. I have also started playing Global 1939 which is a very complicated game but plays like Global 1940 with slight rules variations. Recently, my ten year old grand daughter took a real interest in the game and my friend suggested the 1942 second edition version. It was simpler but still a real challenge. I have one a game against my teacher in the Global 1940 so I felt some what confident as I entered the game but soon found myself scrambling to just survive as my grand daughter lead Germany in a global tear. She says she wants to be President some day…God help her enemies if she makes it. Now she plays the ANZACS and China in the Global 1940 game pretty much on her own. Both games are great but her trouncing of her grandpa in the 1942 games have inspired her to learn more. If you are wanting to gain experience and learn stratagies, I recommend 1942 to start with.
Additonal AA pieces
hi, i wanted to blow up the AA plastic europe printable map i found in this forum, and part of that project is finding pieces for the italian and possibly french forces. does anyone know of a place i could buy additional plastic armies? bonus if they are unique and not like the basic armies you get with AA
If you want original pieces EBay is easiest. You can get used copies of the game fairly cheap, then spray paint. ImperiousLeader has a ton of knowlege on older games with similar pieces. Check the Varient forum also.
or just buy Table Tactics central powers pieces, AA Bulge…ect
Or try this: http://www.xenogames.com/extraparts.php
Those pieces suck. Why you leading him down that road?
Table Tactics are much better
If he bought Xeno parts he may cry
Just trying to provide a variety of choices.
thanks guys, this was just what i was looking for. i can’t wait to put the maps i’m finding on here to good use. happy hunting!
which map would that be?
the AARHE and http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=11087.0 i’m going to try to blow them up to the size of a posterboard, hopefully it goes without a hitch.
Wait: don’t print it out yet. I am making little changes and these will be final. not much. Give me a sec.
ok its posted use the one dated 2/29/08 page 1 of posts
can’t find it, am i just being a newb?
no you’re fine
IL made a typo
its not “2/29/08” but “2008-2-21”
and forget “page 1” go straight to “1st post”
don’t worry about IL’s “will be final”
he said that a few times
after playtesting, he tweaks it a little
we are fairly open minded
thats the whole point of variant maps and house rules right?
so after you printed it out and played it with your friends
remember to give us feedbacks
yea i already made about 78 changes on the map… after i said it was done.
I suspect 20 more are forthcoming.
1st post Tekkyy is correct as usual.
