I’m in Fort Wayne Indiana. I have a few friends that play casually but willing to meet other players.

RE: Global or Anniversary for better 6 player game?
Thanks for the feed back guys. I think I will do the AA50 game for our first few games then move up if others are wanting to.
We just need to decide if we are doing 41 or 42 start.
Global or Anniversary for better 6 player game?
I have a group of guys that are wanting to play Axis & Allies but not sure which edition to break out. We have a mix of player experience two never played, two with less than 3 games and two with around 10 games. All the games have been a mix of A&A games.
At first I was thinking I need to buy A&A 1940 Europe so we can play Global(already own pacific) but then I remembered Anniversary will play with 6 players. Global would give me a reason to buy another game but it will also add Anzac and France to the mix and while not major factors it would make things a little more complicated for those players. Where Anniversary would make things more simple for all the players with only the USA controlling china also, plus rules feel a little easier for new players.
Really leaning toward playing Anniversary but buying 1940 Europe if we start playing more. What do you all think?
I’m also thinking I will play as Italy because they feel like the slowest and I think it would be fun to see if I can take over Africa.
Little disappointed in D-Day
So last night my son and I played a full game of D-day. Both of us are disappointed in the game over all and don’t have any plans to play it again. As we played a few things stood out to us,
A- Planes are pretty useless (understand this is for balance)
B- No way to hold the allies at the beach(which is historical and we understand)
C- Germans can start reinforcing St Lo and they can’t lose.
D- There are lots of areas that are pointless to move to as the allies
I understand we may be wrong about the above list and we should try the game a few more times but we both thought it was hands down the worst AA game (or any board game) we have played so I don’t think it will be played anymore.
How about you guys
Do you like the game?
Is it a game you play much?
My son found my ships
When WaS came out I bought a lot of stuff and the local store played a lot of games, like most things over time it faded and the stuff got shelved. Then when I sold my miniature game stuff WaS was one of the few games I keep because I enjoyed it so much and hoped one day to teach my kids. Well last week my youngest son was going thru the basement looking for board games and he found my WaS box.
We set out everything on our gaming table and started playing a few games. I can’t find my map I made so will have to make a new one but no big deal. But playing I have noticed with 2 or 3 people drawing from one collection we don’t have enough ships. I have looked but the price of WaS are kinda nuts I think I’m going to buy some normal WW2 ships and just paint them myself. Guessing I could find all the ship cards online and if I keep with ships WaS has it would be easy to add more ships.
This got me thinking does everyone stick with the WaS ships or have others branched out too?
RE: Any WW1 global players?
That would be why I don’t see much info on it. Thanks
My son and I saw a Youtube video on playing 1914 on the 1940 global map it looked pretty nice I think we will give that a try once I get my Global maps. We talked last night about some cool “what if” games like what if America or Italy didn’t join the allies or maybe joined the central powers. Lots of different ideas that we could play out on a world map and have a lot of fun.
I will keep a watch for HBG maps.
RE: Father/son games this week
Hope your game goes great!
Thanks we had a good time. We finished that game and played another on Sat. Then I dug out my Axis & Allies Navel ships and Wings of War (WWI & WWII) we played all those too. So we played a lot of games over the weekend I really enjoyed the time glad I never got rid of those things.
RE: Father/son games this week
Go out and buy anniversary edition. Hands down the best out of box version of the game ever released. Comes with two setups, 1941 and 1942.
Great story! Enjoy!!
Would the Anniversary Edition be a better place to start over the Global boxes?
