I enjoyed playing with those event cards. Mostly!

RE: Expanded Convoy Zones/Taranto Mod
The split sea zone in the Adriatic is a good idea for both reasons you mentioned.
While the convoy any territory is interesting I wouldn’t be a fan of adding NO’s to convoy ability of the territories. Probably a better approach would be to add a few more convoy zones or just add to convoy ability to zones that contain a capital. Change the die roll to 1-4 or keep the same value and add a die in a capital convoy zone.
There’s always options.
RE: Simplified Bombers, Flak Guns, and Submarines
You have some interesting ideas. I like the idea of SBR territories up to their value. Would make it harder to defend though.
The subs being open to attack from all with them defending at 1 makes me shudder. But for me I like the sub element as is (not the def of 1).
I see where your coming from though, simpler is better.
RE: Moffett Field R&D Tech Chart Draft
Looks like your taking the “hit or miss” out of the research so you always get something at the time it takes to research it. However, adding a path to the research YOU want as opposed to whatever the dice tells you what you get is great. Like that a lot!
That’s the big picture. I like the little picture the most. That is to say the details of the research like the different tech and units for each nation. Some options are not available to other nations. Realistic.
The multiple attack dice is very interesting; 2 or 3 dice per attack (1@4 and 1 or 2 @1) so that it is not overpowering yet offers something extra. Nice touch.
Interesting techs like two types of heavy tanks for Germany and the v-1/v-2 rocket mechanics is new to me.
Thanks for sharing!
RE: Axis & Brollies : Action Cards and Event Cards
One of my favorite type of house rule is the randomness of the event/action cards. Great job on what you have posted here!
Happy Fathers Day!
Happy Fathers Day to all the players with children (hope you’ve had the chance to play A&A with them).
Spent five hours playing A&A this Fathers Day with one son and the other son who is living the dream in Colorado sent me this drawing. He wishes he was here playing as well. It’s been great to share these games with them over the years and in the years to come.
