in my unending quest to occupy time out here in gyonggi do, i've decided to make a giant axis and allies board. i downloaded the map from the internet and i bought some of that foamy rubber stuff you can get at craft stores. when i'm done, the map should be about five times the size of the regular map, which is already pretty big. i'll have to play on the floor.

when i'm finished with the map, i'll need to make game pieces. i figure i could use plastic army men for the infantry. that should be easy enough to get. but what about all of the other stuff? industrial complexes shouldn't be all that challenging. but what about armors, bombers, fighters, battleships, submarines, transports, carriers, and anti-aircraft guns? does anyone have any ideas? thanks for sharing!

I want to see that when you're finished.

I've been playing that game since I was about 8. Love it. I've got the original computer game and I've beat it so often and so quickly that I'm having to handicap myself (like US vs the world) so a game will take more than 30 minutes! I have it down to beating the Axis in a world domination game in 28 minutes, 11 rounds by playing Russia with the Axis at 5-Star and the other Allies at 3-star.

You seen the new game? Is it any good?

i haven't played the computer game. i've only ever played on the board. i'll let you know how things turn out. if this project ever does come to fruition, the next project will be to find someone who actually wants to take five or six hours out of their lives to come play it with me.

Why not sculpt the pieces you need? Arts stores have all kinds of clay--from stuff dug out of the ground to synthetic types that will harden on their own or if you bake it in an oven.

You obviously don't know how many pieces would be needed. For a basic minimum set (and you'd need 1 set for each of the 5 nations), you'd need 20 infanty units, 10 armor units, 10 fighter units, 3 bomber units, 6 submarine units, 6 transport units, 3 battleship units, and 2 aircraft carrier units. That's a lot, plus you'd need about 15 or so Industrial complexes, and another 15 or so Anti-Aircraft guns.

Then take into account that for better players, you will also need some sort of chip to denote additional units beyond those already in play. The standard set comes with something like 150 white chips (denoting 1 extra unit) and 20 or so red chips (denoting 5 units).

That's a whole lotta sculpting! Granted, that would kill plenty of time.

thanks for the advice. i thought about that. but i don't think i'm a talented enough sculptor to make them look not crappy.

i wonder if i could use plastic coke and beer bottle caps for any of the units. i've got billions of them.
