Good Morning, Vietnam!
An alternate scenario to be played with Axis & Allies pieces and similar rules.
- Map done and first draft of rules almost complete.
- Some playtesting done.
- Refine Political Situation
- Define setup
- Further playtesting
- Need to upload Infiltration board
- Define victory conditions
Map can be found here: (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7x1PKfqsr0lYXRtZC1wUVlaYnM/edit?usp=sharing). Rules writeup to follow.
For game pieces, I use the following to represent each faction:
North Vietnamese Army: Russian units
US: US units
Viet Cong: Japanese units
South Vietnamese: British units
I also purchased the �New World Order� set from Table Tactics (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/10169/new-world-order-axis-allies-variant), and I use the helicopters and jets for this game.
This game utilizes a system of unit hiding for the NVA that may be a bit confusing at first. I use a separate rectangular board, hidden by a privacy screen, with squares coded to zones on the map. NVA and VC forces are placed on this map when they �Infiltrate.� This way, the U.S. has no idea where the enemy is unless they are revealed through reconnaissance or patrols.
In my game, I also made little pieces that represent the level of jungle in a zone (see below) by hot-gluing fake foliage for model train tables to cardboard pieces. Completely unnecessary to play the game, but it definitely looks cool.
