After talking to some long lost friends in the Army Engineering community I found that the CEE truck was replaced with the much larger HMEE built by JCB.
Here is a link to a video of the newly commisioned HMEE if you are interested.
After a little research I found that they cost around $278,500 (USD) each. It doesn’t seem practicle to have one as a commercial contractor; however, for what it can do, plus the extra cost of putting armor on it I don’t think it’s a bad buy also considering its life span is double that of a civilian equivalent.
Since the rule has been made noone has flipped the table… Yet.
It was flipped once after turn 3 of are second game of global.
I was Italy and taking over a poorly played Japan from a friend who had to go. The Allies were going really hard on the Pacific and after my turn 3 which was extremely good especially with dice rolls. They took there turns and flipped the table as they saw the writing on the wall. That is why the rule was in place.
A: 96 Panthers ( 2nd year in league, end of story )
B: 03 Panthers should have won! We were better than them, but all the Brady-ites messed it up!
09 Panthers ( Delhomme’s fault )
05 Panthers ( Injuries fault )
E: 06 Panthers ( Slinkey Weinke’s fault )
F: 11 Panthers ( Schedule Maker’s fault )
I have pretty much every version from 2nd Edition right the way to 1942, but would really like to start expanding the size of my game boards. I know of a number of companies that can do this but will first require a large image (in PDF format preferably).
Has anyone produced any large sized images of the game boards for printing? If so where can I procure them??
Cheating is stupid. Victory with it always has an asterisk next to it.
It’s just a freaking game and if you have to cheat, you have major psychological problems and should address them rather than play games IMO.
Just like all the steroid use!
I have played A&A spring of 1942 ince 1992. Just a simple game with a time period I like. Now I have expanded in all the other expansions and minaitures. I wasn’t sure on the miniatures. There are some good games out there but A&A has it’s place in my heart. Just my thought. Don
