Hi…Thanks for the great responses, and from you all inclu the explanation from Krieghund in a more depth reasoning’s.
I am a Brit who lives in Toronto. Started playing with our group of 5 in 2005 and with our passion, created our own website to sell items on line related to our favorite game!
We play every year, on our designed table which fits the Global 1940 board perfectly! Still some rules I don't know, but I know for sure to feel happy that I am at home to ask any questions on axisandallies.org.
I was honered to meet Larry Harris and World players in Toronto, Sept 2017 at Young Grasshopper's AnA Tournie.
Hi…how are you…?! I am not faulting rules, but just found it odd that if the two Axis were not at war with the sleeping giants, why can One go and free go in one SZ but the other nation not. This will cause a conflict of WHY in a game.
Hi there pps, been a while.
Was looking on the Triple A game and just looking at a few things, and when the USA is not at War yet ( with Germany nore Japan ), there was something I either didn’t know, or triple A has its own rule.
On triple A, German subs ( no USA destroyer in place yet ) for example can goto SZ 101 ( one outside Washington DC ) but in the Pacific, no Japanese fleet can enter SZ 10 at all.
So why is it allowed in the Atlantic, and not in the Pacific side of the USA coast?
Has this always been a rule in the board game, or just a Triple A rule?
Cheers, play safe! Bravehart.
I came upon a situation that I playing the UK had managed to bring my bomber from the Pacifics original set up over to join up with the UK Europe’s side.
I SBR on an Axis factory, and did the set play using all of my United Kingdom bombers on the raid. This is right correct?
I know the UK is one power but two individual Capitals for income, but if a situation like above, you fight as one United UK unit when attacking right?!
This could be any same situation in an attack on land air or sea.
Been a while shooting a question that may be obvious…
Was curious if the situation.
I want to move my transport in a non combat move to a sea zone that has enemy boats in.
Is the transport legal to unload in that SZ, or will the other side have to First fight those transports first on there future turn, and if the transport survive, then I can unload when the turn comes back around?
Realistically, the transports won’t survive at all, but just wondered if I can do non combat and unload, and accept doing this my transports will be gone when it’s there turn.
@djensen Wow…craft beer, pretty amazing industry you are in Sir! Have you heard of Cask Days? It’s held every year in Toronto in October and it’s a whole weekend. Not just local breweries, but Canadian wide, selected USA states from California, New England, Oregon, Main.
Keep up with the good work on AnA and normal life!!
I am Bravehart.
I live in Toronto, Canada. I am originally from the South West of England ( close to Bristol ).
This forums has helped me find many answers and gather new contacts in the community, which has been great.
Europe was my first introduced AnA game ( 1999 ) , and I am talking the original Europe board. This was in 2005 where then my wife and I caught the bug and were drawn to WW2 and went bigger and bought Revised as we had in total 5 keen players interested in AnA.
Today, us same 5 still play with an added 6th player to make G40 the perfect fit. We play during our normal life, generally over the cold winters in Toronto, where the board is on our custom made table which is perfect! A whole game takes us a long coupe of months to play it, round by round, but it’s how we enjoy it, while still getting on with our lives!
Our love for the game created our own website for fun, uploading video’s on most games as an introduction, along with fun clothing to wear while you play! You can see the link in my bio.
I own nearly every version, just need to grab a copy of Zombies!
Jason, thank you for this site, you have made us all very happy to bounce questions and to be able to help others answer there sticky wicket situation!
Nice note Requester45 to your reach out. As a Torontonian too, just like to say I am fine. Was ways away from that are here on Mondays’s idioticness, slaving 11 hours over a hot kitchen.
It’s a shame alerts like this happen at times of bad news that touches the World we live in.
