Instead of changing the game and making house rules, it’s more clever to think outside the box and make up new strategies.
Quote of the week. +1 to you, Subotai!
I agree, however making house rules are quite fun! At least when you have played the same game for a few years. But to be frank, how often do House Rules actually work? :roll: I have probably made 100 over the years, but only a few has survived. Survivors are rules concerning passage to the Black Sea (also an optional rule now), Gibraltar and the Baltic Sea. And obviously some other of the House Rules that we have used, are quite spread, coz many of the House Rules that are found in A&A 50th (transporters, subs, China) are exactly how we used to play A&A rev and A&A original.
However, Krieghund, concerning Bombers we don’t have to use House Rules. If you want to balance the strategic bombing, you just have to use the official optional rule for the fighters. And to balance “Heavy Bombers”, you just have to use the official tournament rule from A&A rev. (Take the best dice of two, and add “1”.)
I think it’s lovely with the new less expensive units, so you don’t only buy infantry and panzer, as you used to to. Last game I even bought a Soviet bomber!! My friends was chocked!! “A Soviet Bomber???” However, it became very useful both supporting small front battles, and bombing the Japanese factory in Manchuria!
The prize for the bomber is just right, I think. The game is soooo much more flexible, than it used to be. I love it !!
