Axis & Allies 3rd Edition Strategy Videos (Windows Media Player Required):
Please note, the following videos and strategies mention at one point that a player may roll for 2 technologies on the same turn. That statement is inaccurate. Page 9 of the rulebook states that a player can only roll for a single technology in a given turn. In addition, these strategies do not take into account the effects of national advantages, which can alter how the game plays out.
Revised Axis & Allies 2004 Version
Some diehard fans of the original map may disagree, but I think the new revised 2004 version of Axis & Allies has taken a classic and greatly improved upon it. The new units offer greater variety, rule modifications have been well thought out, and the new map is a work of art that offers significantly more degrees of freedom in movement and planning. On the whole, it is a more enjoyable game that is much better balanced, and should offer gamers a much better overall experience.

Axis & Allies is one of the 50 most significant games published since 1800.

It was one of Milton Bradley's Gamemaster series of games, which also included Fortress America, Conquest of Empire, and Samurai Swords. The original game covers every theater of WWII.
