Global 1940 Review?
I looked through the first 5 pages but don’t see anything relating to a review of A&A 1940 Global setup. My friends and I are long A&A players, with our favorite edition being the anniversary edition, and we’re thinking of stepping this up to the Global 1940 edition. Can any of you briefly explain your thoughts on this edition? I read most of the rules and while they’re interesting, I feel they’re potentially limiting. I.E. how does the “forced peace” type of deal play out for your games (where America can’t attack by turn x and Soviet Union cant attack so and so by turn x, etc)? It’s seems incredibly restrictive and frustrating. Besides, 3 turns for us takes us a long, long time.
I also noticed that IPC’s can only be purchased for certain parts of the map, I.E. IPCS collected in Pacific can only be used in Pacific theater. Is this true? Seems excessively limiting as well.
All in all I REALLY wants to like this game, I just have reservations from what I’ve read so far. My group would be on the same page. The board is beautiful, the miniatures are great, and the new units seem awesome.
Please help me out! Much appreciated, guys.
