Axis & Allies Revised (20th Anniversary)

Axis & Allies ‘Revised’ is the 20th Anniversary edition of the game. It was released in 2004 and is a global World War II game, set in 1942. It’s a remake of the 1984 version of the game.

The game pits the Axis powers of Germany and Japan against those of the Allies (United Kingdom, United States and Soviet Union). Forces of land, sea and air are all at play.

New features include air-markers to track movement of air units when in battle.

The game is won by either side by securing a predefined number of Victory Cities (cities occupied at the end of a round). Before the game begins, players decide on how many cities are required by choosing one of three options.
