So?..what have I been missing?
Is it ever too late to start?
I’m mainly a civilization2 player but always looking to expand.I prefer a thinking game to ping,ping zap game.Chess over checkers type thing.
Have I got my hands on the right thing in A&A?
I’ve never played the CD version of A&A, but Christmas is coming.
If you prefer chess to checkers, you should probably re-consider that. Being a serious chess player, (rating a shade under 1900) I thought the same thing too. Was I wrong. Checkers isn’t the easy game everyone thinks it is.
As for being right about A&A? Well, as I stated before I’ve never played the CD version, but the board version is great. I bought it in 1988 or 1989 and have played on and off since then. After playing D&D and various wargames since about 1979, I felt I needed a change. A&A was exactly what I needed at the time. The rules are simple enough and easy to understand and the game is very modifiable. You can tell this just by the number of expansions and scenarios there are for it. Hope you enjoy it.
