In this preview of Axis & Allies 1942 Second Edition we reveal the details of the map and setup of the game. The game board has the total dimensions of 40″ x 26″ which consists of two 20″ x 26″ boards that you place together. It is a huge board in comparison to the first edition with more territories and a new map layout. Across the top, in the Arctic, is the Production Chart. Unlike the first edition, the production chart takes up much less space on the board.
In the photos of the setup, you will notice the new green chips. These new chips represent 3 units. Another thing to notice about the setup is the new industrial complex in India.
The setup charts are glossy card stock, pictured below. For a text version of the setup, please look at the Setup Chart for Axis & Allies 1942 Second Edition.
