Hi everyone. Quick Axis and Allies G40 house rules question from Tallinn, Estonia.
I am just setting up an AA G40 table in my office (allready set up actually). The board is set up in a common area and the plan is to take turns one by one without necessarily having the other players (colleagues) present. This will rely heavily on the honour of players but I believe we can make it work. Presumably one game might take anywhere between 1 - 3 months to complete (depending on peoples schedules).
Does anyone know of any pre-existing “away from table” rulesets that allow this type of gaming. I do not mean AA Chess here because I do not wish to get rid of rolling the dice - that is a key element of the game for me.
The problems I see arising have to do with the following aspects of the game:
- if the defender is not present for combat then the attacker has to chose which units are removed as a result of a hit - this may lead to arguments later;
- if the defender is not present for combat then the attacker has to chose whether submarines submerge or strike - this may lead to arguments later;
- Japanese player may wish to use kamikaze strike - this may lead to arguments later;
- defender may wish to scramble fighters and/or intercept bombing runs - this may lead to arguments later.
Possibly even more problems will arise.
So how has this been solved in the past and how would you recommend we solve this.
