Sorry for the noob question but I was wondering if this game is worth $25 bucks like I've seen on Ebay. Especially because I've only ever played 1942.2.

Thanks in advance.

I
Think it is $25. You will probably only play it a few times, but it starts with a historical set up, with the real units named. It also could gains about 15  blockhouses, which are collectible.
It is easily played in 90-120 mins, as the turns are scripted by a deck of cards.

I got D Day at Christmas last year and have played about 4 times.  For 25 bucks definitely worth it.  I paid 45 for factory sealed.   I may play it once a year going forward.  Meant to play it this past June 6th but was unable to do so.

Incidentally, I was just looking at WotC's Anniversary reprint page...

   http://avalonhill.wizards.com/games/axis-and-allies/anniversary-edition

...and I noticed that the "More Info" links at the bottom -- which lead (not surprisingly) to 1941, 1942, and Europe 1940 -- also include (rather oddly) a link to D-Day rather than to Pacific 1940:

    http://avalonhill.wizards.com/events/axis-allies-d-day-0

The link just leads to a D-Day graphics page rather than (as for the other games) to a page giving actual game info, so I'm not sure what to make of this link.  It may be an error which is there instead of an intended link to Pacific 1940.
