After I bought my copy of the Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition game [Amazon], I took a few moments to take some photos. So far my impression is that the game is huge and has a lot of high quality pieces and components. Read the rest of the story to view the rest of the photos. In some cases I put a deck of card in the picture so that you can get an idea of how big it really is.
The much awaited Axis & Allies 50th Anniversary Edition [Amazon] has been release today, November 18, 2008. This new game promises to be great with a huge map, new countries, hundreds of pieces, new units, and all the rules to go along with it. I was unable to acquire an advance copy but I will post photos online as soon as I have a copy of the game in hand. Stay tuned for another article. In the mean time, check out the links on the Avalon Hill site about Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition.
The folks at Field Marshall Games have created some great dice that are specifically themed for use with World War II board games. The dice fit in perfect with any Axis & Allies or other WWII game.
