2nd Edition - Russia and China and DOW with Japan.
Hey Guys, a quick rule question.
What is the rule about moving Russian troops into China in the new edition? I can’t really find anything about it in the rules.
I’m assuming that it declares war with Japan. In the old rules, if Russia declared war on Japan unprovoked, it would forgo a bunch of free units.
What does declaring war to Japan with Russia do in the new rules? Does it affect Mongolia?
Looking to buy AA Global1940 (any edition)
I had to move countries, and could only take so much with me. Because of the sheer size and weight of AA Global I had to leave it behind.
I am currently living in California, and I was wondering if anyone was selling AA Global (eur+Pac). It can be first or second edition, and can miss a piece or two, but definitely not too many!
Please email me at email@example.com if you have a spare.
Americans in Paris
From what I read, the Americans can go pretty much anywhere they want on the board, when they are not at war.
It says that they enter war if they are attacked by the CPs, or if Germany declares sub warfare.
So what happens if they have troops in say, Picardie, and the Germans attack it. Do they enter war or sit there idle?
Very quick question.
About to play my first game of 1914 (very excited!!).
Do you need to hold denmark to go through the straight? Or can the UK shamelessly invade berlin directly from London via sea?
Even if it doesn’t succeed on turn one, if the UK starts contesting Berlin, can the germans still recruit in there?
Which rules to use?
Hey guys, it has been a while.
I haven’t played Axis and Allies in a loooong time (moved to a different country, took a while to settle in ect…), last time I played the latest and coolest thing was Alpha +3. Now I know that there is a new edition of the game.
So should I used Edition 2, OOB rule, or Alpha +3 rules, for the best playing experience. Do they both have advantages/inconvenients?
Thanks a lot!
What do you defend with the European Axis?
I see 4 possible moves by the European Allies into Europe:
1-Land anywhere adjacent to France (Normandy, southern France, Holland, Western Germany).
2-Land in Norway.
3- Land in Rome.
4- Can Open into Berlin.
This one might not be as self explicit. It basically consists in the US landing in Denmark, allowing for the UK to send transports directly into Berlin.
I just lost a game to 4, out of…. forgetting. However, in most games, the Axis just tend to go for Norway, as it is often the least defended, since it doesn’t have an IC.
My question is how do you defend against all of that at once? Do you simply admit that the axis will beat you in one theatre and just build a defensive stack, whilst hoping to finish off Germany quick enough?
