Product Description

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 features 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.

Old strategies had to be rethought
January 02, 2014
My brothers and I have played Axis and Allies for many years. I saw this version recently and pick it up. The new units and territories certainly did throw us a curve as some old strategies had to be rethought. We played on new years day and it really was quite unbelievable. Russia played two turns then fell to Germany. Horrible dice rolls had a big part to play in it but it left the rest of the allies feeling hopeless. All they could do is sit and watch. How it is that on a 'seemly bad' day the game can be decided in just two rounds and there is nothing the allies can do? I gave it three stars for the new units and territories. I hope future games proved to be more play worthy.

Air Superiority Rules
May 21, 2008

I fully agree with Russia being vulnerable to Da Blitzkrieg (fast attack). To counter this I added my own Air Superiority Rules that makes Germany have to finance a Luftwaffe and AA guns to defend against Britain. Basically air unit can’t be attacked by ground units and get strafing and bombing runs (1 per plane per turn) and damage is distributed between infantry and tanks, AA guns attack fighters at 2 and bombers at 1, AA guns get to attack first, fighters may move to defend adjacent areas, as long as their own area is not under attack. This is the basic idea there are some more ‘rules’ that really evens it up a bit. But A&A is a blast and makes for a great time with friends.

The game is fantastic. I don't know anyone who wouldn't want to play this game. I used to be a risk nut before I played this game, that certainly changed. There is just so much more depth to this game than of risk (another quality game). I would never go back because of the availability of different troops which consist of land, air, and sea. This is unlike any game I've played before, and I give it 5 STARS.
