Convoy Rule in Axis & Allies 1940: Calculating Damage
April 13, 2016
The Convoy rule in Axis & Allies 1940 (Europe, Pacific, Global) isn’t the most easily written rule in the rule book. Below is a summarized version.
If an enemy warship is in an opponents’ sea zone with a ‘convoy’ marker, the IPCs collected at the end of a turn can be reduced based on convoy damage inflicted, per below.
Submarines and Axis & Allies 1940
June 13, 2015
I never spent the time to really understand all the rules surrounding submarines. Why? Well, I prefer my battleships. Ridiculous reason, I know, especially considering your opposition may be a sub-freak.
So, here are the interesting things about submarines (for the Europe/Pacific/Global 1940 game at least) that I was initially unaware of:
When Liberating a Country, That Country’s IPCs Revert Back to the Liberated Country
May 30, 2015
I just did a quick bit of ‘googling’ to find the answer to this:

Research Rolls: Do They Make Sense?

We play with the Research & Development (aka ‘Weapons Development’) optional rule quite a bit now, most recently in Axis & Allies Global 1940. The way we play (correct?) is that if the research has failed (i.e. not rolling a ‘6’) then the research token is still alive and available to roll for again in your next turn. You don’t lose the token on failed research, and thus don’t have to buy another one to roll again next around.
Does that make any sense?

January 3, 2015
Back in World War 2, propaganda posters were huge. They attempted to compel the public to help out in the war effort no matter what their status was.
