A non- political 9-11 question



  • @Imperious:

    The fact that they speak English instead of Latin doesn’t bother you?

    I would they rather speak like what we got in Spartacus  ( Lawrence Olivier especially ). A proper Roman accent without expletives. I think they want to pull out some revisionist slant on Rome when clearly this civilization was the greatest of its age compared to everything else which were essentially Barbarians.  If they want to do ‘Ghetto skits’ they should make fun of the Vandals and Visigoths. Rome was the only glue that held together western civilization at that time.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_profanity

    Then look at the entry for futuere particularly.

    Rome did rise (and I would argue that the Han empire was just as great during that time), but it was not without its own lewd and lascivious elements.  And looking at the synopsis of the show, the Vandals and Visigoths are years to come from the events (dramatically) portrayed in Rome.

    @Brain:

    Why do you laugh when I mention my friends name, Biggus Dickus. 😄

    He had a wife you know. Incontinentia Buttocks. (I had to look up what he actually said because I could never make it out)



  • Yep that was her name.

    Jermofoot-

    I’ve seen you on the Political and General boards for several years, but not on any of the game boards.  Do you play A&A? Care to engage in a friendly game?  AA50-41 is the soup de jur these days.

    I do believe someone just threw down the gauntlet!



  • EM if it’s anything like your last game against Tim, I have my popcorn ready for a slugfest.

    I have not played in years and have only played AA original and Europe.  I’ve also never played any hardcore players or really reviewed any strategies (a few for the original some years ago).  Needless to say, I’d not be much of a match.  More importantly, I’d like to, but I don’t have the resources to game right now (i.e. no reliable access to a computer).  Thanks for the challenge.



  • Why join an Axis and allies forum and NOT play the game? That makes no sense.

    Sure it does: I like forums.
    I have talked about the game.
    I have reviewed some of the strats written.
    I have played a couple by email and maybe one or two through the forums.
    I had a Pacific game lined up since I was interested in checking it out, but my laptop died right before it started and I could never get Toshiba to own up to the screw ups caused by them and their techs (and don’t have the money to pursue it legally or replace it outright).

    Does that satisfy you?  Or do I need to justify further why I’m still here after 4 years?



  • @idk_iam_swiss:

    I only like playing games face to face. And I use the forum to bounce ideas and get information, not to play games.



  • @idk_iam_swiss:

    I agree with both Jermofoot and Brain Damaged.  Face to face is more fun to play.  The dice rolls, the trash talk.  Also the online play is very confusing for me.  I may do but maybe in 4 years?



  • Guys I was talking about the guy in the forum who doesnt play A&A at ALL! Of course you play the games face to face. Especially A&A 50, can you imagine trying THAT online? I wouldnt touch it. It would take out all the fun.



  • There’s a ton of people playing Axis and Allies Anniversary edition online, I see like 10-20 games going on now.  I don’t know how they do it but people are doing it.

    I really don’t think you know what you’re saying.  I’ve played several games of AA50 online, seamlessly.  What’s different about AA50?  Online playing rocks!  Playing face to face, I have to get a friend over here (not easy) and play 5 hour marathons at a time, separated by weeks.  Online, you can make a 10-20 minute move for a country at your leisure.  There’s plenty of trash-talking if that’s what you like.  And no arguing about dice landing in the wrong place and stuff.  Don’t knock it 'til you’ve tried it, dudes.



  • I was talking about me personally.  I would have difficulty in keeping track of everything.  I would need to setup the board on the side to see what was going on.  I’m not knocking it, I’m just saying it is very confusing for me to play it online.

    Cannon, I thought the same thing going into my first game.  For me, I soon found out I didn’t need the board on the side.  I guess it’s a matter of getting used to something.
    Also, my reply was intended more for swiss than u  😉

    Not to mention the drinking!  And the strat discussions between rounds.



  • I noticed that with drinking the discussions strays away from strategy and more into “let’s see some action and dice rolls.”

  • lulz…i guess thats how they roll



  • @Brain:

    Countries should settle their differences over a game of Axis and Allies.

    +1 as promised.

    I don’t think there is anyone playing online that still uses a board.  Abattlemap is pretty much the standard now.  It simulates the board, lets you move the pieces and keeps track of how much cash you should collect based on where you place your flags.  Maps are uploaded with your turn, so you don’t have to recreate your opponents moves.  The last person I can remember who was a die hard online board player was “He who must not be named”.



  • Thats the first harry potter reference I have seen in months aplauds to you!

    Snapes_on_a_plane.jpg



  • Why does mentioning Harry Potter deserve praise?



  • Because unlike the golden compass sereis this author had the decency to tie up any loose ends and eliminate ANY sequals. It ends well. the series does I mean. Its better than twilight and eragon. Dont even get me started about how crappy it is that he stretched it out into 4 books…



  • Agreed, a trilogy means three books not four!!!  I didn’t buy the third book for Eragon because of that.  It was good light reading but not worth the money.

    Can’t say anything about Twilight as I have not read any of the books.
