Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition  Board and Pieces

One of the most popular versions of Axis & Allies is making a return to shelves in the Fall of 2017. We have some of the first details about the new release.

We asked the folks at Avalon Hill & Wizards a few questions about the re-release and here is what we have learned so far:

  • Components are the same number as previously released (over 650)
  • Rules now include errata and FAQ (Avalon Hill/Wizards worked closely with Larry Harris on this)
  • MSRP is $100 (same as before)
  • The map had very minor modifications like the Japanese marker was removed from Manchuria and Kiangsu

The target release date for the new Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition is currently October 6, 2017 but Avalon Hill & Wizards do not have an official ship plan yet. The Amazon.com pre-order lists the shipping date as November 1, 2017.

We were also provided with the following promotional copy, which conveniently lists out every single piece included with the game! Finally, be sure to check out the photos at the end of the article.
