Axis & Allies – I demand a recount! Wait… no…. I demand a Re-Write!! yeah… Thats it.

06 Feb


Today was intended to be the first session in a WFRP 2.0 campaign. Unfortunately due to unforeseen events not enough players turned up to make running it worthwhile.

We ended up with a 3-way Axis & Allies game on the go. Which, as often happens we decided needs some tinkering to the rules to make it play a little more as we think it should do.

Basic ideas for it so far include:

  • Restricting certain units for certain nationalities
  • Changing the costs for units, again based on nationality (I.e. Russia gets dirt-cheap infantry at the expense of more expensive aircraft)
  • Changing the combat rolls – everything seems to us to be absolutely abysmal at doing anything. Current thinking is maybe increase both attack & defense by a single point on everything.

And, thanks to Aaron Williams over at I’m thinking of borrowing the following special rule:


Needless to say, once we’ve got some we’re happy with, I’ll be posting them on here to share with everyone. Along with 2 of the big projects now on the go.

      Well, I’m thinking:
      Japan: Godzilla
      USA: King Kong OR Hellboy
      Russia: Some sort of giant Polar bear?
      UK: Nessie
      Germany: Giant Cyborg Gorilla thing

      What could possibly go wrong with that?
