Axis & Allies Games

Axis & Allies is the most successful of the Gamemaster games to come from Milton Bradley. It depicts WWII on a grand scale, full global level. Up to five players can play on two different teams. The Axis which has German and Japan, and the Allies which has the USA, the United Kingdom and the USSR. A full map of the world is provided, broken up in various chunks similar to Risk. The game comes with gobs of plastic miniatures that represent various military units during WWII. Players have at their disposal infantry, armor, fighters, bombers, battleships, aircraft carriers, submarines, troop transports, anti-air guns and factories. All of the units perform differently and many have special functions. Players have to work together with their teammates in order to coordinate offenses and decide how best to utilize their production points. Players also have the option of risking production resources on the possibility of developing a super technology that might turn the tide of war.

It's the morning of June 6, 1944. As Allied forces prepare to storm Normandy's beaches, the fate of Europe is in your hands! In honor of next year's 60th anniversary of D-Day, Avalon Hill will release Axis & Allies D-Day, a new, stand-alone extension of the classic strategy game Axis & Allies. Axis & Allies D-Day will allow players to recreate the largest amphibious invasion in history.

Axis & Allies D-Day features detailed game components including a new blockhouse piece, an extra-large game board, and original artwork commissioned exclusively for the D-Day game box. Other elements of this new Axis & Allies variant include a card deck with three card types -- Orders, Tactics, and Fortune -- to add depth and complexity to play. Order cards determine play sequence and break turns into distinct phases; Tactics cards offer players varied strategic opportunities; and Fortune cards add an element of unpredictability.

Axis & Allies D-Day begins as Operation Overlord, the invasion of German-held Normandy, is underway -- 130,000 soldiers of the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States are poised to assault Fortress Europe. You and your fellow world powers control their fates.

One player controls Germany, whose Axis forces have turned the beaches of Normandy into a near-impenetrable stronghold. Set to breach those defenses are the Allies: the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States. The future of Europe and the world hangs in the balance.

Axis & Allies: Pacific List Price: $45.00 Your Price: $35.95 (20% savings!)

Axis & Allies Pacific is the second expansion to the Axis & Allies game system. In this game, three main powers (Britain, Japan, and the US) square off against each other against the backdrop of the Pacific ocean. Japan is trying to grow her empire, either through military might or by holding off the Allies long enough to consolidate her gains.

The game adds a few new rules and a few new twists to the established A&A game system. Naval bases and air bases turn small, meaningless islands into vital strategic holdings. Convoy zones allow a single submarine pack to cripple an economy. The Chinese forces, while limited, are hard to crush. Japan gets her kamikazes, but will it be enough to hold off the vast economic power of the USA?

Axis & Allies: Europe List Price: $45.00 Your Price: $35.95 (20% savings!)

Axis & Allies Europe is the first Axis & Allies extension created by the original A&A designer, Larry Harris. He likes to call it "a whole new puzzle to solve." A&A Europe takes place only within the European theater where four powers (Germany, USA, USSR, and Great Britain) struggle on the continent, in the Atlantic, and across North Africa and the Middle East.

Most of the rules will be familiar to Axis & Allies players. A&A Europe does add new pieces (artillery units and destroyers), new ways to take IPCs from the enemy (but occupying naval supply lines and taking over the oil fields of the Middle East), and expanded rules for Strategic Bombing Raids.

Plus, all of the pieces in A&A Europe are country specific. The fighter units are not generic fighter planes but the U.S. P-38 Lightning, the Soviet Yak, the German Stuka, and the British Spitfire.

Decide the fate of a nation and the destiny of the world when you play this World War II Strategy Game!

The year is 1942. The Axis war machine appears invincible. The Balkans have fallen. Pearl Harbor has been attacked. Wake Island is in Japanese hands. And Rommel has the British on the run in North Africa.

At this explosive time in history, Axis & Allies challenges you and your opponents to decide the outcome of World War II. As one of the world powers battling for supremacy in 1942, you must spearhead your country's military drive. During play, you'll discover that the theaters of war remain the same and the familiar embattled frontiers still exist, but astonishing events will occur. The Battle of Midway could be lost by the United States--the Russians might not stand at Stalingrad--MacArthur may never return to the Philippines--and the Normandy invasion could happen again and again.

As a world leader in Axis & Allies, you must be a brilliant military strategist. You must have the perseverance of a Montgomery, the elusiveness of a Rommel, the courage of a Patton, the daring of a Yamamoto and the steadfastness of a Zhukov!

Decide where to strike, when to strike and the intensity of the strike. Will it be a strategic bombing raid, a sneak submarine attack, a hit-and-run assault by your well-trained infantry, an antiaircraft barrage or a major invasion by land, sea and air forces? Plan your attack, move into the embattled territory with your forces and resolve the conflict.

The economic destiny of your nation is also at stake. Buy armaments and develop secret weapons from your stockpile of production certificates... an income based on your own natural resources and successful territorial expansion.

If you're a brilliant military strategist, a prudent economist and an astute politician, you'll lead your nation to victory.
