Must resist M:tG. Boardgames are my methadone :)
Also, do you guys play with the Anniversary Edition's rules on techs, rather than the rules printed in the Europe 1940 rulebook? i.e. if you fail to get a tech you can try again next round?
In the one Global game have played, we played with AA50 tech rules, but increased the reaseracher cost from 5 to 7 IPCs. As Krieghund has ponted put, there is generally more cash in this game compared to AA50.
7 seemed fairly balanced..
