Most of the stores I go to that are into selling board games, fantasy accessories, and RPG’s have these in limited stock. But they still have them, usually at $129.99 CDN
I paid about that for my second copy in the spring - about $150 after taxes.
The game is still sealed in its original shrink. I am willing to sell it but might prefer to trade it for a game (or games) of roughly close value. The games I want most are listed here on BGG:
I just think it was neat to see Italy augment an already exhisting strategy. Yeah it was more of an endgame deal but I am sopprised more and more every day how Italy can make it a better game even with limited income and starting units.
Larry has stated many times that the units don’t generally fit standard military models for classic formations (divisions, corps, army) and in some cases these are corps and others they are armies. They are not the same in every case, allowing for the corps in Africa to be symbolized as perhaps 2-3 units, while in the Soviet union one infantry may represent an army ( 3-5 corps).
Yes, IL thanks,
I have been reading those old posts. I note he (Larry Harris) stated the Naval units abstraction was a greater dilution of unit strength, or a direct correlation to vessel numbers from standard representation of Classic fleet/squadron/Battle groups. I am thinking more in chess terms, where tempo or position is sometimes of more value then individual pieces.
and that 33/67 split is going to be actually more historical for that opening of the war as well. Europe was the stated first objective, then Japan from the US standpoint, so more money did go that way at the start.
