Been a while since I played my AA50 game……
What I used was plastic grooved strips for the edge of paneling or wall board from Home Depot (very inexpensive). You can just use them across the top and bottom of the map to keep it together better.
For my g40 game I built a custom table that the map fit into (so it can’t move). I retrofitted an old pool table so the map it inset about 4 inches below the rails. Over the rails is felt covered plywood that is used for unit cases and dice rolling etc…
I think he’s saying I’ve attached his list (which it is HIS list, by the way), but I managed to post it before he could.
Yes. It’s hard to get news out before someone else does these days, with all the watchful eyes out there.
P.S. – Thanks, Krieghund, for your hard work. I’m just making sure you get your props.
I found that sending men in the baltic sea in AAE was a faster way to send troops out to the front which it did also i some how took leningrad on 1st turn and he was pissed because men in russia and belorussia had a choice and they had to retreat and keep a few men there. So making a bit of a navy for germany can be profitable if the russian rolls are “5’s”
HT1… You sonnofabitch! Been dreaming about this game for a while my friend. Despite the piles of HBG plastic at my house, I have reorganized my AA50 game into the finest that WOTC has to offer! I have taken all the best plastic and paper and put into one box. Thankfully I have piles of HBG plastic at my house so I can play G40 and GW39. See you on the battlefield! No doubt pics and AARs to follow.
Actually, I am the first and only person ever in the history of the game to CHOOSE not to kill the Chinese fighter. Don’t try to deny me. I have proof.
And for the record, what exactly do the designers have against the Flying Tigers that they would put them in such a threatened position in every game they make?
Welcome to the “I-don’t-destroy-the-chinese-figther-in-game-turn-1-club”.
This figther is no risk cause it can’t leave china.
We play with four,
hoping to add another. We also speed up the game by going all Axis then all Allies. We are going to add timers, to keep the game moving, we include a 6.5 hour time limit on our games, with pizza and beer, or in my case a shot of whiskey can not be with held.
