Limited Edition?


  • '10

    @Lozmoid:

    No Tac Bombers or Mech Infantry on the new battle board/strip? And Aircraft Carriers still showing as Attack at 1 :? Strewth. Guess I will have to make my own.

    I never use the battleboard….am I in the minority on this?

    too many new units. I may be more in use than before. I would use it for larger battles because it may get confusing.

    What i don’t use is the IPC track. I write the income down and have for 30 years.



  • I never use the battle board but I do use the IPC track.

    I only use the battleboards for big or sometimes just important battles (for the fun of it, and to keep track of losses). I haven’t played FTF with any post-AAR versions, but I imagine I’d do the same with their battleboards as well.



  • Yeah I don’t use the battleboard except that it makes a good visual aid for new players. So that is why I would like to have one that is at least correct. Shame on WOTC for not giving us a quality product.

  • What scares me if newer player buy this game and see all those mistakes!!! How are they supposed to play the game as it is at the moment?? They will have to find this website or another to get the official rules



  • Krieghund is part of the game design process and is someone who should know what is going on.  I am sure he will check on this subject and let us know.

    He said:

    I have heard nothing to indicate that this is a planned limited edition, for what that’s worth.  I think the fact that the old Europe and Pacific are now out of print is a good indication that these will be around for a while.  Of course, poor sales numbers could change that outlook.

    I hope he’s right.



  • Well if your worried about it, then buy as many copies as you want now while you can.

    At the price they’re charging in the UK?  😮 I think I might need to talk to my bank manager  :evil:

    @Craig:

    I know that Krieghund said that, but I was talking about going further and talking to Larry about.  To get clarification.

    This is worth doing. It would be best getting it from the man himself.


  • Official Q&A

    Where do you think I heard it?  😉



  • @Krieghund:

    Those little voices in your head. 😄



  • Yope has the inside line, Krieg talks to Larry, and IL is “in the know”.



  • The Game Shoppe in town said the purchase sheet he got from WOC said this release of AAP40 is a deluxe version and will be like AA50 and another Pacific will be released later like AA1942. Same goes with AAE40. He also said that WOC expects this AAP40 to be sold out in early January 2010.

    I think I would trust Krieghund over your local dude who runs a game shop and isnt involved in the game.



  • I guess time will tell.

    Has there been any confirmation of this as LIMITED EDITION?  A customer e-mailed me and asked:

    “I have heard that Wizards of the Coast sent out a letter to all the retailers stating that AAP40 is going to be a limited print edition and that they are working on a smaller scale Pacific game similar to AA42.  Is there any truth to this?”

    I didn’t get this Memo!

    That would be lame.  I’ve bought two copies - for extra pieces cause they never give you enough :x
    I’m thinking about buying a third one though because of this.  I’m glad that I bought 2 AA50 games last year.
