RE: After Action Reports
Title: Allies swarm 41
Special Rules: none,no v.c.
Victor:Allies by concession I was allies,brother was Axies,were both decent players,but i have the advantage because he hasnt played the newer games and dont have all the new rules down.Plus i have acess to all the stratigies that are posted on this site.
Game Length: about 2 hrs.2rounds
G1 germany took out have of UK,s navy,took ukraine,e. poland,baltic states failed.
Italy non factor,he didnt know what to do with them.
R1 russia fell back to lenn.,mos.,caus.,stacked everything i could in bury. bought 5 inf,3 tanks.
Japan took new guinea,borneo,killed all bought 2 chinese.killed most of us navy,left me the carrier and plane cant remember what the japs bought.
UK1 bought a bomber anIC,carrier.ic placed in india,consilidated navy in sz 8
USA1 bought all navy+bomber,left the pacific,took atlantic navy and put with the uk navy.
turn 2UK and USA bought all navy+bombers,uk did put troops india to ,russia had atleast seven tanks,a plane mabe and 3 stacks of inf.USA moved into africa.
Observations/Recommendations:Sense the axis didnt really know what to do with itlay and know how agressive to be with japan he was really overwhelmed.I went with kgf.
Germany dont have the airforce it needs and without italy helping they cant stop UK,USA.
We played a 2nd game a few days later and i tried to split the USA income half to the pacific half to the atlantic,that didnt work to well but the allies still won in 5 rounds.
RE: Is anyone alive at Avalon Hill?
Or maybe they don’t even have a marketing budget, just a distribution one.
Why do they need a marketing budget when there or sites like this to promote the game for them.They new that people that play the game would tell thier friends and they would tell thier friends ands so on.And when there are say 500 hundred people from all over the world reading the fourms at a&a.org the word will spread.
just my 2 cents.
RE: Just How Old Are We Axis and Allies Players?
I started playing about 86 or 87.played classic and 2nd addition to death.My wife thinks im nuts playing a game that last for 8-9 hrs or longer.lol.
I really enjoy going through the fourms here and reading everones input.im 39.
