What are the major changes? I was under the impression it was merely a rulebook change. But, my friend is adamant that there are other major changes…

RE: Grasshopper's Battle Dice (Available at HBG)
I absolutely LOVE this idea. I have used color coded dice for a decade or so but looking at all the pips makes me feel like I may gloss over hits at times. What you are doing would be so much easier!
My colors are a bit different (white/red/black/blue/yellow) largely because I am colorblind. Being colorblind, I have a huge amount of difficulty distinguishing between the red and green you have selected. If you are interested in advice, I would consider changing either the green or red to white or yellow. Assuming that is not possible, you may want to consider making the red a bit lighter/brighter.
If you would like help, I am more than happy to assist with finding shades of red/green that may work for most of us. Just remember, colorblindness is not the same for everyone…though what I have is supposedly the most common form.
RE: Missing pieces is my game still playable?
Boardgame Geek has a pdf file where you can print the IPCs and cut them out.
As far as chips go…looks like you have several options presented.
I have a small bag of extra pieces. Shoot me an email to remind me and I will look through to see if I have what you need.

RE: Ikusa - Shogun
sweet. the new version seemed really short of pieces to me, we didn’t play it but I have it. It always seemed like you needed jillions of ashigaru…
You are correct. I used to break out shogun to add their pieces - always a pain
Sorry, from what I understand, the troop count is limited in order to increase attacks. Basically, the only way to increase your number of troops is to kill off an opponent…you then get his troops to use.
RE: My low-cost DIY enhancements to 1942 1st edition
Love the boxes with slip covers. What materials did you use? Any helpful hints you are willing to pass on?
RE: The Return of Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition
I am more curious of the actual differences. Does anyone know a good place to get pictures of the original anniversary pieces?
I have all the main games and have struggled over the years to not get the pieces mixed up (as opposed to my friends that just toss all the pieces into large containers). I have printed lists of the original sculpts so I know what to look at. Having never owned the original anniversary…I don’t have them…but would love to see them.
RE: Please Read Before Opening your Anniversary Box 2017!
My Italian box had a slight crease in the top…but, it pressed right out. I was too anxious (and worried when I read about all the boxes that were missing parts)…
