Hello,

I have three (yes, three) incomplete versions of the old 2nd edition game (NOT revised), and I am trying to piece together at least one complete version of the game. Unfortunately I have no idea how many red and white chips come with the game. (It's not listed in the rules.)

Could one or more people inventory how many red and white chips come with the game? I suspect that it may vary, so I'd like to get at least two people to comment.

I too would like to know this, as I have a copy that I need to inventory.

I don't think the number of chips is meant to be limited. The number of pieces is a limitation, but you can have as many chips as you want.

Otherwise you get gamey tactics like buying as many infantry as possible just to exhaust the chip supply for your opponent.

I just counted my own chips and found 6 red chips and 45 white chips. I'm fairly certain I'm not missing any, but I've had the game for a long time.

Philip --

I understand your point, but I'm not concerned with how the chips relate to the gameplay. I really just want to know HOW MANY chips are included with the game for inventory purposes. (I'd like to know whether I can assemble two complete A&A games given the pieces that I have.)

Thanks. Can anyone else confirm these numbers?

blush Sorry about my red chip count. I guess I'm missing 4.

Aaron,

I suspect that the chip count may vary, so you may not have lost any. That's why I wanted more people to comment on what their game came with (to come up with some consensus).

I'm not sure that those are the numbers of chips that originally came with the game. I might have lost a few.

The number is listed on Page 8, the rule book. It comes with 85 chips. I checked my box and it contains 89 chips, among which 78 white and 11 red.

Are you sure you're looking at the MB edition of the game, because I don't see any indication of the number of chips on page 8 in the 2nd edition manual.
