Question regarding Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition


  • Because I buy things in EU, even A&A games. Say, I’m Spanish  :-P. The bad thing is that it is a trouble even with European Union companies games, as Games Workshop. Imagine when you see: box of space marines in Europe 30 €, in US, 30$  :? (GW is british, sending cost should be lower to EU than to USA).

    For that I’m a bit frightened AH make the same  :|


  • just buy the game and stop being so cheap

    The Enlarged Gameboard for revised edition 2004 takes both wine and water ;)

    Er du Jonas eller Kenneth ?

    Og hvorfor er forumet til aaclubdk.dk alltid stengt ?

    The companies are the cheap ones… wait… they are not cheap, they are expensive …  :-D


  • @Funcioneta:

    My experience says higher prices not always means higher quality. Remember what Games Workshop does… sure, they’re not AH, but you can get the idea. And I love burnt orange japaneses and limey british  :lol:

    I prefer they stay in the 60-70 $ and hope they traslate the price in euros right (euro cost more than US dolar, but lately the companies are pricing 60$=60€  :-P)

    In my experience, Games Workshop plastic models are easier to work with than pewter models, and although a fair number of the plastic sculpts (pewter too) are of questionable quality, some are quite good.  Also, Games Workshop has excellent customer service in the United States as of my last experiences.

    However, I have to admit my opinion is also that Games Workshop has absolute garbage for organization as far as writing rulebooks goes, and that their approach to independent retailers and trade sales in the United States requires a lot of improvement.

    ^^

    As far as the Avalon Hill game goes, I find that it is already a bit difficult to find real-life players to play Axis and Allies Revised (the online community is pretty good, but that’s another story).  The game requires a lot of setup time, is repetitive, and runs into problems with cooperative play when your comrades don’t share the same plan as you (whether they’re just not into the game, or whether they have their own strong but wildly fluctuating ideas).  For that reason, I am not sure a price tag of 100-150 is something I would be willing to meet.

    I would spend 100-150 no problem if I could just PLAY the d*** thing.

    Oh wait . . . someone on these boards (you knoes who you are) already said he’d send me one for free . . .  :-D so I guess i don’t need to worry about the price after all . . .  :lol:

    Well lets see, its April 1 today, you aprils fool, so much for a free game he he he

    Then, it’s far better than customer service in Spain. And better if we don’t talk about translations. They translate books to catalan in Poland and to spanish in Catalonia  :-P

    I must agree with all the other things you said  :-)


  • Games Workshop is the biggest rip off in the history of all games. Freeking $70 bucks for a box of crappy unpainted grey models, paint, brushes, instructions and paint guide, all sold separately.

    You walk in those stores and they try to get you to play some silly games:

    roll that pile of dice over there…. Gee you cut off his arm… roll the red dice… another hit on torso… hes down… he fires back with his pike…a miss… you roll for your morale/ saving roll… wow you came back and broke his leg… roll that pile of dice again and count all fives… 2 more hits…roll that pile of dice over there…and on and on… Its gotta make you puke.

    Lets get out rulers and move every 5 inches and repeat everything… yada yada yada.  all this we get in a box for $40 bucks, why the hell is somebody going to waste $1,000 on crap when its the same damm system as every other game?

    People got flogged for less crimes.

    To be honest, this is why bids are not needed in an FTF game with five people. The Allies are much less organized and thus less effective.
