New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    Yesterday Afternoon, I took the Allies and defeated my friend as the Germans in the Basic Scenario. Landed at Salerno and then later at Anzio.



    One of my favorite games ... Have all editions plus the new maps ... awaiting for a new edition that will include the invasion in Sicily ...

      I have 37 AH games, not counting VG games. Have not played any in some time.
      But I look forward to trying Bitter Woods.

        Noticed something

        I have noticed that AH used only a Blue/Red color for most of the games produced in the 1960 for counters and charts.

        Blue for Good and Red for the Bad....

        Anyone see the "Cold War" comparison?

          I have Panzer Leader but I prefer the new Panzergrenadier, which offers more variety and historical realism.

          I do look forward to AP's remade WW1 tactical game though.

            Panzer Grenadier is fantastic. I just strated playing the games. I do have to give the nod to the old AH mounted game boards, though. No chit-style games that I have seen these days comes close to that quality; although the laminated game boards are nice in their own right.

            Tide of Iron game boards are amazing quality.

              Unfortunately, if you like mounted boards, you are out of luck these days. Personally I am happy enough if the maps are good looking. They still fit under plexiglass. It's a pain to play without it, especially on counter-heavy GMT games.

              A side note - GMT is getting pretty big. They may be the next Avalon Hill and then thirty years from now we'll all be hunting them down or playing remakes.

                Its a good point! The mapboards today are much better looking (have you checked out Lock N' Loads:Band of Heroes? Gorgeous, and a very nice game system).

                I got a great idea from seeing this plastic material my Mom-in Law uses on an indoor wrought-iron patio furniture table. It's clear plastic, and rolls up. You can find it in fabric stores. Works real well onto of gameboards that come folded, like the Axis & Allies Miniatures gameboard.

                    That sort of thing never fails to blow me away. Considering I have it, and the base game as well as the Desert module as well.

                    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                    I didn't for a long time either.

                      I remember someone had those three items for sale one time on ebay (about 8 years ago). They sold for $40 total. I just wish I jnew then what I know now. I would have bought all three for at least $50.

                        Good 'ol AH! I think I played, and at one time owned, virtually every game they published, starting out with Tactics II, while still in High School.

                        My perennial favorite, for a quick and dirty evenings play, was Battle of the Bulge. Been meaning to get back into that particular game, but haven't done it yet.

                        My recent interest has been updating Panzerblitz and Panzer Leader, curtesy of the fine folks at "Imaginative Strategist" who have kindly provided literally thousands of new and redone unit counters as well as new geomorphic maps.

                        Never really satisfied with the rules as they were published, I have spent considerable time and effort in redoing the rules of PB/PL to make them common to both games, to help with solitare play, to make the CRT a bit more realistic (and not so bloody) and to make the combat a little more realistic without making the rules so complex as to make them unplayable.

                        The most time consuming has been, of course, making up thousands of game counters, representing all the Armies of WW II, to the point where putting a Division in the field, with supporting units, is no problem.

                        Play testing goes on, but the final product is within reach, perhaps by the end of February.

                        In answer to one post above, there was/is a France '40 variant, as well as a "Paraleader" variant and a number of Russia vs Finland '39 scenarios.

                        Being retired has it's benefits!

                        GG

                        P.S. If one is interested in the counters offered by "Imaginative Strategist", check out their websight. There is also a gentleman on ebay who makes up the various Armies' counter sets, mounts them and has them ready to go. (Saves boo-koo time and well worth the price.) //ebay; Games; Avalon Hill//

                          I had nearly all the AH classics way back when. Left most of them at my mother's house in California in the late 'seventies when I moved to the midwest to go to graduate school.

                          I started a new collection in the 'eighties and it has followed me through several moves, but the classics weren't part of it until I started buying them second hand on E-bay a few years ago. Now once again I have Midway, Afrika Korps, Anzio, 1914, Luftwaffe, Richtofen's War, 1776, and Third Reich. Maybe some day I'll actually play them again.

                          I never owned Russian Campaign until I bought a good used copy of the second edition on E-Bay. Darned if I didn't end up playing that one more than all the other games in my collection combined -- at least for a while.

                          Then there's PanzerBlitz and Panzer Leader. I owned both, left them in California, but bought them back again (three copies of Panzer Leader, no less) on E-Bay. Now I play quite a bit of both, thanks to VASSAL.

                              I have a whole shelf full of old AH games. Many other's too.

                              The one I played last was Devil's Den.

                                I had that game out just last week, it was one of my favorites! For WWII, I also liked their Bulge game. Fun but not complicated.
