Are you working on a setup for this? I’d be willing to try it out as long as it doesn’t alter the OOB map at all.

RE: All these AARs; why don't you mention the French units?
One game I was able to use an ANZAC fighter and a French destroyer to kill a Japanese battleship on the Indian coast. It was pretty sweet, I lost both the fighter and the destroyer but the one-two punch was able to knock the battleship out.
RE: UK industrial complex in Egypt
I think that Italy can take Egypt if you give them enough of an incentive to do so. Leaving all your units behind there is incentive enough, so building a minor IC would only make them more likely to go for it, which they will most likely succeed in doing UNLESS you are able to wipe out the battleship fleet with your carrier/destroy/cruiser, and if that happens you won’t really need an IC there anyway.
RE: US Fleet doom move
Also, 12 IPCs is a lot for Italy to spend. It won’t have enough money until turn 2 at least, and at that point there’s more useful units they could buy. Even if you do get the bomber out, it’s going to need somewhere to land that’s defensible, which is probably going to be French North Africa.
RE: Accurate Miniature Equivalents for Custom Painting your 1940 E&P
I think those infantry are your masterpiece.
RE: 1st Global Game on the forum
It may be balanced, but I hate how the entire RN in the atlantic save the carrier(a total of 3 DD, 2 CC(plus 1 French), 2 BB, and 2 tr) can be killed on G1.
Yes but the point is the game works. Germany may be able to wipe out the British fleet but they have to take units away from other areas of the map to do so.
RE: AAG1940 at Gencon so far
I was also at Gencon, and literally just got back home. The new game is fantastic, I was able to play both Global and Europe versions. I’m not sure if I saw you there, but I was the one playing as the Soviets during the liberation of Scotland.
You were there on Saturday, right in front of the HQ table? Larry and I watched that game for a while, off and on. It was interesting.
I played Global on Thursday morning around 10, and that was when it happened. I asked Larry if he had ever seen that before, and he said he hadn’t, so I was pretty proud of myself haha. I also awkwardly asked if I could take a picture with him too, which I was super pumped about.
Where where you placing the transports that you used to liberate Scotland? Up north in sz 127?
Sounds like Larry was into some game play. Did you get “dirty” too?
Yeah, it was out of range of the German air units and it let me reach Scotland in one turn with the naval base and all.
