No, lot that like lol! What I meant was an alternative history game where the ww1 or ww2 country borders exist on the supercontinent, but the new landscape, bordering countries, and climates will change a country’s industrial scale, economy (wasn’t landlocked before, but now is), type and size of it’s military, and it’s objectives and alliances during the war.

Please understand that this thread has been created so that the creators of the game can collectively organize their ideas for expansions. However, this does not mean feedback is unappreciated, as long as it’s not rude or extremely criticizing.
RE: Cold War Expansions.
Here is part one to the Cuban Missile Crisis Expansion. Parts are still incomplete.
Bay of Pigs Invasion Scenario
Brigade 2506 Marker (x1)
B-26 Bombers Marker (x1)
Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Marker (x1)
Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Sheet (x1)
Fidel Castro Marker (x1)
On the 5th round of play: Remove all Pro-Communist units from Cuba and place them on the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Sheet. For the remaining period of the game they will be referred to as Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces units. Place the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Marker in Cuba. Place the Fidel Castro Marker in Cuba. Place the Brigade 2506 and CIA B-26 Bombers Markers in NA- 22.
The Bay of Pigs Invasion sees NATO attempting to oust Castro from power. During the Conduct Combat phase of NATO’s turn, NATO will move Brigade 2506 and the CIA B-26 Bombers into Cuba to attack the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces and bomb the Cuban airbase. Combat will last one round. Victory is determined by the amount of damage inflicted by either side.
NATO Major Victory: All Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces units are destroyed. Remove the Fidel Castro Marker from the game and place a NATO roundel on Cuba. NATO will control Cuba for the rest of the game. Brigade 2506 will remain in Cuba, but may not leave. Remove the CIA B-26 Bombers from the game.
NATO Minor Victory: NATO inflicts more damage than the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces. Remove the Fidel Castro Marker and all remaining Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces units from the game. Cuba becomes strict neutral. Brigade 2506 will remain in Cuba, but may not leave. Remove the CIA B-26 Bomber’s from the game.
Cuban Major Victory: Brigade 2506 is destroyed. Replace all Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces losses and add 2 rocket artillery and 1 tank. Remove the CIA Supplied B-26 Bombers from the game. Increase Warsaw Pact morale by 20 and decrease NATO morale by 40.
Cuban Minor Victory: The Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces inflicts more damage than Brigade 2506 and the CIA B-26 Bombers. Replace all Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces losses. Remove Brigade 2506 and the CIA B-26 Bombers from the game. Increase Warsaw Pact morale by 10 and decrease NATO morale by 20.
Both a Cuban Major or Minor Victory will start the Cuban Missile Crisis scenario.
Overview of Units:
Brigade 2506- Brigade 2506 was a CIA sponsored of Cuban exiles. It was formed in 1960 to attempt to overthrow the Cuban government led by Fidel Castro. It consisted of 5 infantry battalions and 1 paratrooper battalion.
Stats- Rolls 6 dice when attacking and defending. Attack- 2. Defence- 2. Move- 0 (1 when moving into Cuba). Cost- Cannot be rebuilt.
CIA B-26 Bombers- The CIA supplied 8 B-26, which attacked the Cuban airfields two days before the invasion.
Stats- The CIA B-26 Bombers do a pre-emptive attack before actual combat begins. 8 dice are rolled and hits are scored on rolls of 5 or 6. The number of success hits scored is combined with the damage inflicted by Brigade 2506 for a final result. In addition, if the amount of successful hits is 6 or greater, the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces may not commit any air units to their defence.
Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Marker and Sheet- The Cuban Revolutionary has been the most powerful institution in Cuba. It consists of ground, naval, air, air defence, and other paramilitary forces.
Stats- The Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Sheet keeps track of the amount of units represented by the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Marker. Units are added and removed from the sheet.
Fidel Castro- Fidel Castro was a Cuban revolutionary and politician, serving as the Cuban Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976. He also served as First Secretary from of the Communist Party of Cuba from 1961 to 2011. Under Castro’s administration, the Republic of Cuba became a one party communist state.
Stats- Fidel Castro provides benefits to the communist powers in the game. As long as Fidel Castro is in Cuba:
NATO’s income will lose 30 IPCs for the rest of the game.
+1 Defence will be added to all Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces and Warsaw Pact infantry units in Cuba.
RE: Cold War: It's Finally Done
You know, people who create custom maps and board games spend a great deal of time, effort, and sometimes even money to complete their projects. They don’t deserve to have people criticize their hard work and effort. As a custom map creator yourself, I hope you understand. Besides, the creators of the game are getting the chance to distribute their product, so obviously your ridiculous, so called “flaws” ain’t a problem. So, like Milkmen said, try to be a bit more polite, and check your spelling before you post.
RE: 👋 Introduce or Re-Introduce Yourself (Current)
I’m MonsieurMurdoch. I’m quite new to the forum, yet as you saw earlier I have been helping out @Militarized-Milkmen and @GEN-MANSTEIN on their Cold War adaptation. Very excited for the opportunity for working with Historical Board Gaming!
I have currently posted only one setup so far, based on the Chinese Civil War. I encourage you to take a look if you have the time and please tell me what you think! I appreciate any advice because it helps me to develop future setups.
I owe both Europe and Pacific G40 as well as 1941, though I don’t play that one anymore. Kicking myself for not getting 1914 before it went out of print lol. Deeply dislike AAZ. I also enjoy watching gameplay of Global 36 and 39, but since I can’t buy those due to shipping costs I have to settle for adapting the games setups to G40.
Anyways, hello again and I’m glad to be on the forum!
