Thanks for the responses, guys. Appreciate the help!
Just went ahead and ordered AAP40 from Amazon. Looking forward to getting it.
I’m definitely gonna try and get into playing both AA42 and AAP40 online. What’s the standard in the community when it comes to playing the games online? Do the majority of you prefer playing by forum, playing by email (both of which are still somewhat confusing to me, but I’m sure I’ll learn with time), or TripleA? I’ve also heard about ABattlemap….What’s the general consensus on the best way to play?
I believe that the majority of the players active on this website who play Axis and Allies online use ABattlemap to play here on this website using PBF (Play By Forum), but I know that there are also several players who play using TripleA. I believe that play by e-mail is basically a thing of the past, but I could be wrong. I personally have only played online using ABattlemap, and yes, the very first time that I played, I was a little confused, but after the first round of play, I was playing online just like someone who had played online for quite a while (not actual gameplay, but posting correctly and such). It’s actualy not that difficult once you jump in.
