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.
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.
I have little experience with comparing games, but I certainly consider this game to be magnificent. I don't like to criticise things like board games because I decide what I like and no one else chooses for me. So what if the history is a little off(if so). The game and it's pieces are beautiful and I find the game to be very fair.
This game is excellent, it by far exceeds the original. iwould just like to say that me and my group began to lose interest in the game at one point but we added Italy to the game by giving them most of what they had in ww2 plus alittle of germanys territory, and sued japans units from world as italys, and split germanys money accordingly with italy, it made it much funner and more challenging
