Local Chapters are needed in your area!

IAAPA is organizing local face to face gaming clubs all across the World. We are currently busy trying to establish just which areas already have several IAAPA members. Currently our only tools are the Bulletin Board and the Member Information you provided to us. Please help us to better organize these local chapters by updating your member information today.

Local Chapters bring you together for face to face playing opportunities. Organizing chapters help to set up a regular meeting schedule, so you can have an occasional gaming night or weekend with all your A&A friends. Spending a few hours with your friends gaming can be a great way to work out that little bug in your strategy that never works. Insightful discussion about Bids, Economics, and Positioning will make your playing more fun and improve your skill.

Remember that your personal information remains private. We never give it out to anyone, and it remains accessable only by the few government members who need it in their duties (basically recruiting, as they verify identities to prevent dual identity attempts, or illegal re-entry by expelled members).

If you haven't reviewed your member information lately, do so. We will be conducting a review soon and deactivating those memberships that we cannot verify. If we cannot reach you by phone, or by mail, we will have to assume that you aren't being truthful in your identity and deactivate you. So avoid the fuss, and be sure your information is correct.

If you would like to chair a local chapter club, contact president@axisandallies.net

We are now sanctioning play of Axis and Allies by using the Hasbro CD-ROM. This can be accomplished on the Microsoft Zone Axis and Allies Ladder Room, or directly by a TCP/IP connection. Information on how to play in this format can be found in the CD-ROM FAQ.

IAAPA has been sanctionning a variant form of Axis and Allies called cutthroat which takes the feel of Diplomacy and applies it to the traditional game. Members may play these games and compete in a completely distinct and unrelated rankings system with other members. For more information, go to http://cutthroat.8m.com/index.htm. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Chancellor of Cutthroat, (cutthroat@axisandallies.net).
