Nice work Macaoidh!
I’m currently working on a game overview for axis and allies globally.
maybe you can combine this with your idea?
I am currently working on a game document.
The aim is to provide a better game overview and more comfort.
By means of national markers it is possible to mark out the grayed out symbols.
I would like to have a list of units,
Enter the ipc, bring in diplomacy and the victory cities.
Unfortunately, I have not found a solution for it, so the game underlay is not too big …
I am working on an house rule for the research and development in G40!
The plan is that every nation has the chance to do research (except china).
This gives new strategic possibilities. For example, German rocket attacks in round one.
The ipc expenditure is calculated from the income of the respective nation:
What do you think??
Here the files,
I hoped it works and you enjoy:
I tried the company myself.
Price was similar, delivery was within 5 days.
The quality ist very good.
And yes, it is completely without cardboard.
My wife isn’t happy, because the thing is big and I still can’t find a good place to hide it.
Very nice V. Manstein!
I like the work of them too.
It’s a good price performance ratio.
I keep the big map in the packaging box down in the cellar.
With a little effort you can even transport it in the car. :lol:
The foam board I’m aware of is actually cardboard with foam in between and what you seem to describe and what I get from the website you shared the material you have printed on doesn’t have that card board finish. Is that correct?
sorry for the late answer.
I was a little bit busy.
I don’t really understand your question - the board consists of three layers:
2. foam (feel like a mousepad)
3. printed surface
I can’t explain it better, but it works.
How sensitive is it to pressure? Like someone leaning on the table and putting his wait on the board?
You need a stable table or surface for the board.
The big board ist a little bit elastic, so when you lean with mass on the corners it could be, that it bend there.
But otherwise there are no bruise of pressure.
Could you share the German name of the material? What you describe here doesn’t look like the foam board I know.
Or share a link to a German website. I had some German courses back in high school so I most likely can read it anyway
Of course I can, maybe my translation is wrong. :?
I used YG’s map file from the cliffside bunker.
I have it printed at the online webside “WIRmachenDRUCK”,
it cost about 50,- EUR this includes send by an express company.
The german word is “HARTSCHAUMPLATTE”.
Is it helpfull?
Perfect solution. I’m interested. You could then use these as a way to track income. Trading card ownership to match the map. Way faster than counting the piece covered map.
Hi Rank Carcass,
this is exactly the reason, why I decided to show the income from the different territories of each card!
My plan is, as you have realized, take all Global 1940 territories in the card deck.
This includes all neutral territories and any axis or allied territories without units.
I think, it will be about 200 cards - I haven’t count the territories on board yet.
All factions starts with the starting territories, and after conquer they give the cards to the conquerer.
Then you can’t easy count the IPC income - like in the boardgame The Settlers of Catan, where you count your ressources.
This game inspired me for this idea.
The next step is, use both sides of the cars.
Front: Global 1940 Setup
Back: Global 1942 Setup
Of course I’m working on an english version,
which I should upload in this forum free to use.
I too like your setup cards. What program did you use to create the cards? Did you have card stock to print them on, or did you cut all the individual cards to size? A great idea.
I’m not good in working with image editing software. :lol:
So I did what I can: I just use Microsoft Excel and Paint to create this cards.
After that I print them from online printing house on ready cut bridge cards.
I like the idea of the setup cards! I might ‘steal’ it and use it for our own games.
Did you get your map laminated our protected in any other way against scratches?
Hey neighbor Tjoek,
i will provide the card deck and upload in this forum.
The survace of the map is like a mousepad, so you can wipe off damp cloth and don’t really need some protect.
The only problems are the corners, one of them have a small crack at Yukon from transport to another playing area…
