Me and my frends don’t play serious like SERIOUS just we meet up and play for a day. the amount of discusion that goes round the table is disgusting
but to be honest if you were play a game with your mates…… SOUR GRAPES!!! :lol:
Hey everybody! :mrgreen:
Over the last few days my friends and I played a couple of games of axis and allies we loved It. We all found it amusing that we came to have a network with computers but ended up playing axis and allies for the entire time. The last game we played took a good 12 hours.
The only problem we had was learning a game from a manual (I might add is badly written) rather than a person. I say this because we got a few rules wrong and then it was like we had just tainted the game but we still had fun. Expect for the last game all 3 games the axis one easily. I found strange as most sites say allies are overpowered.
I have a few game play questions I would like to ask if someone would not mind clearing them up for my friends and I.
( btw we play Axis and Allies revised , the one with this cover http://www.rainydaygames.us/images/Products/WOC86620-458217.jpg)
Question 1. Germany has a tank in Algeria and it want to attack Egypt, nothing is in Libya but it is controlled by German can they move 1 into Libya then attack the anglo-egypt? Because it is now a adjacent or can you only attack if it is adjacent to you at the beginning of the turn it says both on in the manual.
Question 2. If a plane on the island, of midway we did not know what its maximum range was or what the Island bases nation ability did but this was our guess
Without Island bases the plane would move 1 into its own sea square (56) 1 into 57 then because Japan is not an island 1 into 60 to attack the island thus it could not attack Japan from midway because the movement back would be 3 6 all together.
If you had island bases you could do it because you would not have to move into 56 just move into 57. Or in other way you donâ€t have to count the square the plane is in when attacking.
Question 3. Also with planes. If a plan in Germany wanted to attack Britain, does it have to move into 5 then 6 then Britain or can it or once it hits the coast square it is attacking the land and doesnâ€t move into it
Question 4: Do AA guns fire into costal squares for instance if a bomber attack Germany and ends up in square if Norway Western Europe and Germany all had an AA gun they could fire at the plane?
Question 5. Weâ€re can ships be deployed? For instance United Kingdom stars with ships in sea zone 2 but can ships be deployed in and adjacent sea tile? Even tiles which share coast with Western Europe and Norway?
Question 5: if you buy a man a tank and a transport in the same turn can they come into play on the transport? Or, do you need to move them on?
Question 6: what is the point of taking Gibraltar? I can understand midway and wake Islands but not Gibraltar
Question 7: A silly question really but can a plane just attack a man. For example, a plane wants to attack anglo-egypt from Algeria can it do this even if it canâ€t move in?
In addition, can the man fire back?
Japan wants to attack China from Kwangtang and French Indochina with three men from each. He has two bombers in Japan the Chinese has only 3 me. Can the bombers attack the Units withdraw then the men attack so they get there banzi or do all attacks need to be declared at the same time ?
Question 8 if you have long-range aircraft can a bomber from Western United states attack Japan? Moreover, land back there. Seems like a silly question I know but it seems history very in accurate. You would not need to island hope to even get close to Japan.
Question 9. Final question whats the difference between The Larry Harris Tournament Rules (LHTR) and the Manual i tried to click on links but none work anymore. I found the manual and it is written the same i donâ€t want to read 29 pages again! ( we all ready all read the manual 3 times!) The only differences I can see is Japan loose lighting attack and get better battleships.
Thanks for your help everyone!
