I have all the versions of A&A on board, and the Europe 1999 is one that can be done in half a day. Remember last time I played against my brother and a friend. Tricked them and forced a R5 stack attack which ended miserably for them. It was their soundest defeat to date.
I screwed up the movie time and had to watch it in 3D. This was my first 3D movie I’ve seen in theaters since Ice Pirates I think, back in the 80’s. I wear glasses so I’ve always thought today’s 3D glasses were a pain in the balls but they weren’t bad, just wish they were larger. I kept noticing the frames during the movie. George Miller said he made this movie to favor the 2D experience but the 3D version will “hold it’s own.”
The good news Tom Hardy fans, (myself included) is that last month, he signed on for 3 more Mad Max films!
I don’t like 3D in theaters for the same reason, frames get in the way of the big screen experience.
Him signing on is just a precautionary obligation actors are asked to do which makes the prospect of additional movies likely. If they want to make more money with a sequel down the road, best to have the actor in your pocket first… it doesn’t mean there will be more, but with the success of Fury Road and the demand for hero/villain action flicks that look like they were ripped from the pages of a graphic novel , it seems like a good bet that there will be.
I’m a Rangers fan and even I admit it’s wrong for Brodeur to have his retirement celebrated outside New Jersey. The Blues even trotted out some of their legendary players, as if Marty’s seven games there will be remembered by anyone. I have no doubt he wanted to stick it to Lou Lamoriello: but I think he’ll have no problem mending fences for his jersey retirement ceremony so he can soak up the applause.
HT1… You sonnofabitch! 😄 😄 Been dreaming about this game for a while my friend. Despite the piles of HBG plastic at my house, I have reorganized my AA50 game into the finest that WOTC has to offer! I have taken all the best plastic and paper and put into one box. Thankfully I have piles of HBG plastic at my house so I can play G40 and GW39. See you on the battlefield! No doubt pics and AARs to follow.
This map (in larger size than first edition !!) would be my favourite map for second Edition. (of course it would be in english 😉
2 more tts for Russia: St.Petersburg and Kaukasus ( Starting Set Up for both were the additional 3 Inf from the Tournement Rules)
1 more tt for Turkey: Armenia (Prevents Russian Units from taking Bagdad in Round 1)
Germany looking like Germany in 1914 not in 1919. Bulgaria reaches the coast/Finland no more.
Switzerland with its formidable army and difficult mountaineous region worth 3 IPC.
4 more USW-Zones (historical)
Mexico as Minor Power to simulate the Zimmermann-Note, some Zones for the US.
Konstantinopel is handled like Suez Canal along with one more SZ in the Med.
In Africa some colonies allow to place 1 Inf. when mobilzing your troops (brown K). (Mexico also)
I kept the rest from original game although there were some things I still don´t agree with (you can check out some of my maps in the 1914 map tweaks in the House Rules) but for the simplicity of the game I can live with it.
My wish would be that it is forbidden for AH in the first turn to attack Italy or Romania because these two were Central Powers when AH declared war against Serbia in 1914.
I’m not a trash talker but I laugh so hard at my friend when he rolls crap dice and just swears at his roll like he just burned his hands or something.
What do you guys do, if anything that would be interpreted as trash talk?
I’m the friend rolling crap dice and it is friggin annoying when you roll 19 dice and get 2-3 hits. It tends to chap a mans ass once in awhile. My 5 yr old loves to roll dice for hkytown1 and myself and he rolls worse than I do, gets 1’s, 2’s and 3’s. We call him the cooler.
