New Axis & Allies games may become hard to find

  • '22 '21 '20 '19 '18 '17

    Something to be aware of - it may become difficult to find any new A&A games for sale on store shelves. I’ve been asking around at different game shops. I wanted to know which A&A games can be ordered from central distributors. What I found was that, depending on who you ask, either only A&A Pacific 1940 (2nd Ed.) or no games at all are available from distributors.

    I was then told that Hasbro has moved the Avalon Hill imprint from being a subsidiary of Wizards of the Coast to being a direct subsidiary of Hasbro itself. The store owner telling me this concluded that the A&A pipeline will shut down while Hasbro and/or Avalon Hill figure out what to do next.

    This doesn’t mean that no copies of A&A are available for sale - just that as those copies at game stores are sold off, they won’t be replaced until this situation is resolved.

    I don’t know just how much of the above is 100% correct. But I thought I would get the word out, so that my fellow forum members might know.

    Thanks for the information.

    Next week, I’ll check with the shops in Denmark, in which we by our games, to figure out their supply situation.
