    Description A variant of the Global game, starting turn 3, with enhanced strategic bombing
    Download Download

    Good Points

    • Variant of the Global game
    • AI plays well
    • Better balance than the Global game

    Bad Points

    • Although the balance is better, it is still tough for the allies, especially once the Germans start bombing Russia


  • Scenario Axis & Allies Global 1939-Midnight Express
    Description A 1939 scenario for AAG40
    Download Download

    **Good Points

    • Uses the well-tested Global mechanics

    **Bad Points

    • As with most Global game scenarios, it can be hard for the Allies, especially if they are mostly played by the AI.


  • Scenario New World Order 5 Nations
    Description 1939 on the New World Order map, with everyone except Germany, Italy, Russia, UK, US as garrisoned neutrals
    Download Repository/Experimental/NWO Variants

    ** Good Points

    • Lots of options on a fairly open map
    • Lots of unit types

    ** Bad Points

    This is fun to play against the AI as the Russians

    Download Repository/High Quality/World War II Global

    Good Points

    • A dynamic situation with lot's of possibilities

    Bad Points

    • Russia's situation tends to deteriorate after while, because it is hard of the Western Allies to actually break the Axis.

    Download Repository/Experimental/WW2v3_11N

  • Scenario Pact of Steel v3 Rules
    Description A small map WW2 game with Italy & China using AA50 rules
    Download Repository/Experimental/Pact of Steel Variations

  • Scenario World War I 1914
    Description An imperfect port of the Axis & Allies 1914 boardgame
    Download www.rogercooper.com/world_war_i_1914.zip

    Good Points

    • Most of rules are handled successfully
    • Plays pretty fast
    • Unlike the boardgame, you have enough pieces to play

    Bad Points

    • One important rule is not handled, in TripleA combat is mandatory, in AA14, combat is voluntary
    • With all land units moving at speed 1 and only builds in the capital, the game is rather slow.
    • The Russian revolution rule is not implemented
    • Unlimited British builds in India unbalance the game, just like in the boardgame

    😂

    Bad Points

    • One important rule is not handled, in TripleA combat is mandatory, in AA14, combat is voluntary

    Now TripleA handles this with the option "canBeMovedThroughByEnemies". You can also retreat staying on the same territory. However, this is not enough here; just saying in general that combat is not anymore always mandatory for land units, as now they can be submarines too. The general option for sea units (not only submarines) of not creating combat in a sea zone has already existed since a few years, also.



  • @Cernel It may be worthwhile to update the scenario once the new properties are documented. On the other hand, the OOB version of AA14 is not a good game. Something along the lines of Larry Harris rules need to be implemented.

    To really make WW1 games work you need the ability to have a separate non-combat move speed (and be supported by the AI).



  • can you look at great war ultimate?



  • @Lord-Bevan My problem with the Great War map is West Front insert. This has the effect of making the shortest route between France & Germany going by way of Italy & Austria, making for odd-looking game-play.



  • Scenario mewww-alliances (Middle East World War)
    Description A small map game of conflict in the Middle East
    Download Download

    Good Points

    • Somebody's first effort at creating a map, so let's give the guy a break

    Bad Points

    • Poorly-drawn map
    • Odd unit placements
    • Too many nations in too small an area
    • The original scenario was FFA, so blame me for the alliances


  • i meant great war ultimate is broken, you need to update it.

    also lebowski 1915 needs a little bug fix. americans need cavalary unit to be able to play. lots of players cannot buy factories.

  • @Schulz The old attachment misspelling for the Great War. I will post the fix this weekend.



  • I meant Great war ultimate which i cannot find anywhere now.
