You can buy a vinyl printout of the board from office max or staples, no idea how it works but I know its been done. Check out the axis and allies Facebook group and ask a question there, someone will definitely get back to you.
My group came into the following question this weekend:
The German Navy, which consisted of a Battleship, Cruiser, Carrier, 3 transports, destroyers and subs, was positioned in SZ 109.(Left of England)
The GB had 2 cruisers in SZ 110 (English Channel).
Can the German navy move into Seazone 110 and pick up troops from Normandy and amphibiously invade England?
No. Transports may not be loaded (or unloaded) in a hostile sea zone.
