1 AA50 Battle Strip
HI friends I do not have the game. So I started by creating a battle strip for the AA50 version that I could not find else where. So my efforts might be appreciated by others...If you like image. Please "thumbs up" or geek gold your appreciation
0 AAA50 Expansion Rules Tech Chart
The two tech charts are broken into four appropriate areas (as mentioned in my expansion rules file). The chart itself can be cut out and fits inside/under the lid of each nation's components box. I've kept the heavy bombers at 2d6, since a player can now "focus" on more particular tech. to combat SBR's (ie: war bonds, radar), and if you use the Fighter Interceptor rule that I've included in my expansion (also used in other A&A editions)... then bombers should have a bigger punch to make it worth it (and I like heavy bombers to be HEAVY :) But its an open excel so anything can be changed (I've added some description to each tech as well, when space permitted). Oh - and some feedback and results while using these charts would be nice...
3 Expansion Rules
Balancing rules (for the N.O. tilt) via added realism (Shore Guns) which also add some additional WWII elements (Elite Infantry, Fighter Escort/Interceptors, Air Bases, Victory city prod., the A-Bomb). Except for the first three rules (Gears of War, Anti-ship guns, and Communist China), the rules are from various editions of A&A (from Nova to the present global setup) with slight modifications to better meld with AA50th. Oh - and some feedback and results while using these rules would be nice...
0 Single board naval fog of war and modified submarine combat for Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition
Single board naval fog of war and modified submarine combat rules in text file. The rules allow one to implement fog of war for naval combat and enhances the submarine combat part of Axis and Allies to better simulate submarine and anti submarine warfare. The rules are not too complex it just may look complex because I had to put in so many sentences and broke them down to points to be easy to be digested. The rules are made to be easy to remember by following common sense. Hope you'll like it. I have play tested the rules and they work great for me. I wouldn't play otherwise :-). Note: You have to edit the file a bit to be able to print it properly. Any question feel free to PM me.

A new way to play Axis and Allies that lets you control the political destiny of your nation in addition to its grand strategic aims. Playtested for your enjoyment. This variant is best when also using Research and Development and National Objective rules (but can, of course, be used without these). Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the ruleset. Best regards, C. Yorke
