Europe 1940
With the invasion of the Low Countries and the allied evacuation from Dunkirk, the German army is poised to march on Paris. Axis & Allies Europe 1940, designed and developed by Larry Harris, builds on the success of the acclaimed A&A Anniversary Edition. France appears for the first time in Axis & Allies and will represent a new playable ally! Italy will be included as a second Axis power along with Germany. The UK, USSR and the US find themselves vulnerable at this early and uncertain point of the war. Two new combat units that debuted in Axis & Allies Pacific 1940, Tactical Bombers and Mechanized Infantry, will also appear in this game. Axis & Allies Europe 1940 will feature an oversized board that measures 35" wide by 32" high. With over 550 combat units, deluxe game components and local storage boxes, this game will raise the standard established by A&A Anniversary Edition. All new rules for neutral nations, naval & air bases, and convoy disruption will add even more depth and historical accuracy to this giant game.

Finally, this deluxe theater-level game is designed to play together with Axis & Allies Pacific 1940. Together these two games will create the greatest Axis & Allies experience to date, with a combined board measuring 5' wide by 32" high and over a thousand sculptured combat units. Both games are designed to play alone or together to offer the 2-6 player global 1940 scenario, complete with weapons development, and national objectives.

“Hardcore gamers only!”

Let me start by saying,this is by far one of my favorite games of all time. Are there better military/strategy boardgames available on the market currently? Sure. But this game has a certain nostalgia factor that’s hard to overcome. While it’s seen many iterations, this is very close to the original. It focuses only on the European Theater of WWII but the game mechanics are very similar to the 1980’s version.

Axis and Allies definitely has a steep learning curve, but with practice the rules will come more easily. My biggest com plaint is the length of time needed for set up. Game play as well can be very lengthy. This board game is meant to consume the better part of an afternoon/evening. Only play if you have a block of time to set aside or the ability to safely leave the board set up until you can renew your game.

On the plus side, the production quality is excellent. The board is large, and it needs to be as the pieces tend to get crowded. The addition of national goals adds a deeper element to the strategy of the game, allowing for short term personal achievements. With the right group of friends this game is extremely fun.
