Hello all. I've just developed a site where you can download new board game versions of Axis and Allies for FREE! All maps are hand-drawn with their own rules, production lists, new technologies, new units, new national advantages, and new countries.

New scenarios include:

Vietnam - 1969
What if the US invaded the North to force them to sue for peace? Would things have been made better or worse?

Flashpoint: KOREA - 2009
The North pushes South and all nations in Southeast Asia are involved.

Operation: Iraqi Freedom - 2003
Baghdad fell to the Coalition in 3 weeks. Could Iraq have held out or would their fate be sealed again? From deadly suicide bombers to Shock and Awe, the fight is on!

The Balkans - 1999
NATO air strikes fail to stop the Milosovic government's ethnic cleansing of Kosovo. A gound war is in the process of starting. Who will win the powderkeg that is the Balkans?

World War III – 1988
After a bloody border skirmish Soviet and Warsaw Pact forces push into Germany along all fronts. With over 20,000 tanks in Europe and over 1 million men under arms, NATO forces are in for a fight for their very existence.

World War III: Arctic Front – 1989
Coming Soon!

Check it out and let me know what you think! Go to:

For all word documents, just "save as" and open them from your computer. They do not open over the web itself.

Feedback always welcome on new maps I can create.

Thanks,

The Axis and Allies ruleset works excellent for the Axis and Allies board, and when you are making variants you should keep in mind why it works so well.

I would bet that Flashpoint: KOREA makes a much more exciting game than Operation: Iraqi Freedom, although they both tighten the width of the battlefronts from standard A&A. Korea retains some of the global nature of A&E, with production distanced from fronts and a naval assault could simply circumvent the DMZ. Iraq, though, I feel would devolve into dice rolling and massive crunches of units. I'm not sure what I think about Vietnam, but it seems it will turn into a naval crunch because there are so few naval spaces and they are very valuable. WWIII looks like classic A&E, and the Balkans seems like it is set up for some (fun) chaotic play.

Looking quickly at your rulesets, they seem suitable adaptations, and the map graphics are well done. Clairity is key with maps, and yours are clear and vivid.

All in all, I liked them and will try them out. sorry if I just posted my concerns, but I figured those would be more useful to you.

Edit: It bothered me unduly for some reason that the suicide bombers would be called terrorists. During the war, they are just soldiers in the same way any kamakaze unit is: their goal is the distruction of the enemy war engine. After the war is when they become terrorists. There is no longer any hope of destroying the war engine, so they attack morale (of troops and back at home) with "terror" attacks.

Good thing

Yes, it certainly IS. I don't know who amongst US, that had been 'awaiting' for ANY others along these 'lines' to be developed, and were surely 'disappointed' in those that actually WERE produced, can find solace in the EFFORTS of many others, such as what is presented with THESE. This has been the case for most of the 'history' of this particular 'Game', as is evidenced by the prolific AMOUNT of material created and dedicated to JUST this 'Game'! Sure, RISK has its adherents, but MORE people truly 'enjoy' playing, 'fiddling', Variating, and generally SHARING this 'devotion' to the subject on hand. I applaud ''Rune Blade's'', ''Krieghund's'', ''elbowmaster's'', ''many OTHERS'', as well as my OWN 'creations' for this and plenty of MORE to follow. Since the actual 'Companies' that ARE 'supposed' to BE ''in business'' for this purpose have ''let US down'', then permit US to step up and FORWARD to the 'task at hand'!
GREAT 'JORB!' one and all, keep up the excellent 'concepts' and WE all 'need' to support them in this however we can!

Site

Hey Guys. Glad you are both liking the site. I figured that many people were wishing for new battlefields for A&A and I thought my ideas would be a good change of pace.

In response to Adam's Vietnam question, The United States are the only nation that have a navy on this board. This was due to the fact that Vietnam had no navy to speak of and neither did China.

Serbia was a different way to look at warfare concering terrain. It is imparitive that both sides secure the victory cities and use the railroad system to move units since Serbia is mostly rugged mountains and tanks would not move as fast.

Adam, in response to your concern about me calling suicide bombers terrorists is because most of them target innocent Iraqi civilians on purpose. Given the current events in Iraq the past two years, they have murdered innocent children going to school, women who want nothing more than to get an education, and men who have signed up to secure there country. I find these acts most disturbing and anyone who engages in them cannot be considered a soldier. Rules of war apply to all individuals in combat regardless of whose side there on. Considering their actions the past two years, that is why I dubbed them "terrorists".

I hope that all games I have posted are entertaining and thank you for your honest criticism and support for all of the maps I have created. I hope that I continue to contribute to the Axis & Allies effort.

Thanks again guys,

Rune Blade

Second Korean War Preview

Hello all,

Just a heads up that I will be re-doing the Korean scenario. The Map will be 1.5X bigger than any I have previously made. This will mean a massive ground war and massive naval war. I have also eliminated Japan as a playable country which will make only 4. Japan will be an "Theater Option" for South Korea, but I will only hint at these for now. One Theater Option for North Korea will be "Chemical Weapons Usage"
One Theater Option for the United States will be using "US forces on Japan".
One Theater Option for China will be "Increased IPC Supply"

I am experimenting by making the game closer to real-life combat where victory will mean not only achieving your objectives but also inflicting casualties while minimizing your own as well as destroying "high-valued" targets such as the US Aircraft carrier or Battleship. Theater options that I am creating for each country will mean greater battlefield advantage for the player, but will cost him/her Victory Points needed for a Marginal or Decisive victory.

More to come later.

Program Used

I used Photo Studio version 5.5. It was a program that came with my scanner. I draw the images and then scan them to the computer. Then I color them in with the tools in Photo Studio. Glad you like them.

Korea will be out in a week.

scenario idea

While I was playing bells of war ( looks much like axis and allies with the europe map only ) I came up with a special scenario where you play the U.S.S.R against the europe. Each territory's income was increased by 1 point to balance the forces. Since there was a lot of empty territories, the income had gone from around 90 to 150.

So if you need another idea of scenario

- soviet against the world or europe and asia.
- maybe the US and USSR both was to conquer the world.
- the European union becoming more powerfull have started expansionist activities.
- Or even make 1984, 3 super power which try to get their slice of the world.
