I might be up for a game, but would really only work on the weekend (sounds less ideal for some in the group). I am closer to downtown, within the loop, so not too far.

AMS Integrated Rulebook and House Rules
Sorry not smart enough to figure out how to post link directly on the forums, but over at Brian Wassom’s YouTube Channel, under the video discussing our House Rules, we have added a link to the Abandon Monitoring Station’s Integrated Rulebook and House Rules. This combines two projects: (1) integrates the Europe and Pacific rulebooks into a more user friendly version with cross references back to the original rulebooks when rule debates break out; and (2) incorporates the house rules we used when playing games 11 & 12 of the series.
Would love some thought and comments on the rule variants. We borrowed and modified a bunch that was available here and there and then play tested and modified some more. Comments to date range from “great ideas” to “you suck and broke the game.” We do think the OOB rules are Axis tilted and maybe its because we are bad, but these rules were really fun when we played with them and it opens a boatload of new strategies. Looking for input to improve these for the future.
RE: The Spanish Beachhead: American Strategy
I am not allowed to post links, but Google “Wassom + axis + allies” and you should find the link on YouTube to our game 9 video, deploying the SB strategy. Â Discussion of pros/cons and highlighting some of the discussion on the forum. Â OOB rules; J1 DOW, India fell T4 and Axis won T9. Â
Would love comments/thoughts from the hive mind of the forums. Â In particular, successful strategies for Allied on a coordinated J1 DOW using OOB rules (i.e., no bids). Â I don’t think SB can ever work under these conditions, but I remain open for further (re)education. Â
We will play Game 10 this weekend. Â I am braving the Allies again and trying to slow the J1 DOW war machine. Â Video update to follow.
Thanks, Young Grasshopper, for your continued commitment to additional content. Â We appreciate your efforts and the time you devote to this project.
