|Axis & Allies (2nd Edition) Strategy Articles:
Axis & Allies is one of the 50 most significant games published since 1800.
Designed by Larry Harris, it was first published in 1984 by Milton Bradley, now owned by Hasbro.
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. Since then other variants produced by Avalon Hill (also owned by Hasbro) include Axis & Allies: Europe in 2000, Axis &
Allies: Pacific in 2001, revised Axis & Allies in 2004, and Axis & Allies: D-day in 2004.
While Risk introduced a generation to strategic fighting board games, Axis & Allies took Risk to a new level for a new generation. It adds new levels of gaming complexity, but can be enjoyed by both experienced players and newcomers alike.
