GEN CON 2017 is now history... we now look ahead to 2018:
August 2-5, 2018
2017 Intelligence Report from GEN CON. What we learned!
1. YES! the rumor is true. AA50, Anniversary Edition game is having a "REPRINT". Not a new Edition. But just a reprint for all those that were not able to get a copy the first time around. No Board changes or set up changes. (Oh, they did get rid of the dual country stain in Manchuria) and There will Be some new sculp's, But other than that, same great Balanced game as it was Before!
2. the change in the 1942 2nd setup worked extremely well and will continue on into future. Game results are posted below...
3. 1914 Economic Collapse rule has clarification. If the collapse happened before the Beginning of the countries turn, they are not permitted to collect income. If it occurred after the Beginning of the turn, then they are permitted to collect income.
4. The "Masters Invitational Tournament" will return in 2018 at GEN CON. The top 8 teams, (the best of the best), will square off in this reinstated tournament. More details to follow!
5. Even though there was a request to have "Revised" events in 2017, this endeavor did not go over well. We will not be having any revised events unless specifically requested.
6. Look for more non-AA events in 2018, more specifically "IKUSA" and other games will be part of the Smoreyswamp event listing.
