There are many games that allow a player to conquer the world, but Attack! is one of the most enjoyable. The components are tremendous, the game plays quickly and easily, and those who love playing light war games with hundreds of figures will have a blast! Fans of Risk who find it too unpredictable and random will enjoy the additions of different troop types and the clever, excellent combat system. The plastic units, cards, and board add a nice pre-World War II period flavor to the game, and the different abilities of the units make different strategies possible. The trading of the resources adds a bit of negotiation to the game, and the ship battles are unique and interesting. An expansion adds more complexity and options, but the basic game is simple and will meet the casual gamer's needs.
Attack! (along with the expansion) sets the new standard for games of world conquest. Attack! raises the bar on quality for graphics, miniatures, and simple, but elegant gameplay.
Note: The product on Eagle Games' website named Attack! Deluxe Edition is actually a bundle of Attack! and Attack! Deluxe Expansion (sold together but packaged in two separate boxes).
I bought this game about two years ago and have been playing it ever since. Whenever I introduce it to someone, the player becomes immediately addicted and immersed in this great game. The more you negotiate with other players, such as treaties and trade agreements, the more interesting and realistic the game can be. A word of advice though: When playing with the maximum players it is wise to omit the oil papers and use the normal three-action system. Saves a lot of time and headaches from players who are impatient. All in all I'd recommend this game to anyone with a love for conquering the world. ;)
There is a need for a 'Take Over the World' game that is a bit more involved than Risk but not in the complexity of Wargames. This is the game that fits the niche very well. Less complex than even the 'Axis and Allies' genre, yet providing room for skill, decision making and a lot of fun. The game system is so simple, smooth and playable, that non-gamers and 'Beer and Pretzel' gamers will enjoy it. The box cover looks like an old WWII movie poster. Plastic pieces and a well produced gameboard.
This is the 1st WWII game I ever got and after looking at it at many web sites they all gave it the same rating 5 of 5. This game is a must buy. Two things I don't like are the board becuase it does not look good , and It is not like axis and allies because you can have USA vs USSR. This game has an easy rule book and is short. BYE BYE! (this game)
