Picked mine up in Montreal yesterday - plenty of copies available.

RE: Possible to retreat from a space where an air unit came from?
I was wondering about aircraft withdrawals from amphibious landings as well. Suppose the UK amphib assaults norway, with 2 Figs from Gbr. If the battle goes poorly in the first round, and the UK wish to withdraw their figs from the battle, can they withdraw them back to Gbr? Or must they land within one space of Norway?
If there are no AC’s around, and no place to land within one space, do they have to continue the combat?
RE: Folding Game Table
Amazing work, the table, maps and units look impressive. I’ve very much wanted to build an enlarged laminated map, but the biggest problem I’ve found is the units! If I may ask, where are those units from? A different A&A game? They don’t look like they come from the minis game… I’ve looked online and in miniatures/hobby shops but I haven’t found anything that fits the scale I wanted.
I would be very interested in the 250MB PDF map that you have as well. It looks like the perfect sized map I was looking for, and the work is impressively detailed.
Once again, kudos to the creative and dedicated work you put into this, I’m so very jealous
Our A&A group would like to start using bidding at our game, but I’m wondering how to implement the bidding rules.
Some details about our group: We’re usually 4 or 5 players, and we randomly draw the countries from the unit charts. Our teams aren’t fixed and we like the “randomness” of it. I would like to avoid “pick your partner” type situations.
How do you implement bidding rules? Fill me in… I’ll try taking a stab at it.
Everyone secretly bids for Axis. The players with the two lowest bids are given the Axis countries and must decide who will play Germany and who will play Japan. Does that sound about right?
What if there’s a bid tie between three players?
If the two lowest are the Axis, then the other 2 or 3 divvy up the Allies between them?
Does the player with the lowest bid determine how the bid is divided between Ger and Jap?
