Consim Press has announced that they have entered into an agreement to publish a new edition of the The African Campaign.

http://www.consimpress.com/news/category/african-campaign

Further "... will not be changing the game but giving it a deluxe treatment with larger map, larger 5/8" counters, updating rules presentation, etc."

This link has samples of new mapboard art: http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX/.ee6f382

Well, I'm excited.

Back in the days when there were less maps we played every map back to back

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Larger map? Given that it was two map boards placed end to end (if my memory is not failing me) that's going to require quite a long table

I still have my Jedko Long Box edition.

Quoting from Consim again "...It'll have 1.5 maps - so, 22" x 50.75". There is an option to have them be 17" x 50.75", but it might cramp the charts, so we'll see."

I'm thinking my gaming chair will need wheels !! whistle

Especially if there's an open road and you move one of the recon units!

A few games are playable in a decent amount of space. The original edition of The African Campaign is one of them.

That's for The Campaign for North Africa because only European Royalty have tables big enough for that.
