“I guess world domination is a guy thing…”
I suppose what Sir Yanny is saying is right. I don’t speak for the majority of women out there, but I never felt any real urge to wage war for world domination when playing Axis and Allies. Usually I’m just content to be off building bombers in Britain. With that said, each game I try to accomplish one goal besides total victory. These goals are usually small in effect, but I enjoy them nonetheless.
For example if I was playing Japan, one of my secondary goals would be to see if I could sail around the world using Japan’s naval fleet. Eventually they’ll link up with the remnants of the German fleet and my objective would be accomplished. I figured that Japan’s Navy wasn’t really needed after the Battle of Hawaii and this would bolster German defenses in the Mediterranean.
Another fine example would be if I took 3 Japanese planes from Japan and flew them across the Globe to Western Europe, stopping in India, Africa, or Eastern Europe along the way. This way I can help my beleaguered German player with defenses of the Atlantic Wall.
Those are just two examples of turning the boring game of World Domination into a fun one. Maybe you can even come up with your own
“Axis and Allies stands not only as one of the most stupendous works of man, but also as one of the most beautiful of human creations. Indeed, it is at once so great and so simple that it seems to be almost a work of nature.”
