1940 needs an “all in one” 3rd Edition with a better rule book as well as significant adjustments to unit profiles, victory conditions, and research and development (plus more).
2nd edition without an upgrade kit was a slap in the face to those of us who bought 1st edition. Luckily between HBG and this community I was able to fill out my set. Without that, the choice would be to play with sub-par makeshift units, or else shell out $200 USD +tx for a few plastic AAAs. Not a peasant dilemma.
You all might be missing a more important detail here.
Quote from the same article. It’s the sentence right before the atrocious “zombie” comment:
But why, I ask, hasn�t Axis and Allies come to tablet yet?
�I think we will be correcting that in 12 to 18 months,�
If they’re serious and we’re actually getting an official software release of A&A, that could potentially be huge (or a disaster, if WOTC decides to shut down TripleA),
I caught that. Just that personally I am more interested in table top gaming than digital gaming.
