Axis & Allies Global 1940 Board Size
October 8, 2020
One question worth asking before attempting to play Axis & Allies Global 1940, is whether you have a table big enough to hold the board. You think I’m kidding, but – no – it’s something to consider.
As you likely know, the A&A Global 1940 board is created by placing the boards of Axis & Allies Europe 1940 and Axis & Allies Pacific 1940 side by side (yes, they line up for this very purpose!)
The combined board, frankly, is quite huge.
The Axis & Allies Global 1940 board size is 70 x 32 inches (178 x 81 cm).
Most dining room tables can likely handle the 32 inches wide, but the 70 inches long is where it can become an issue. Also, consider that it’s nice to have room for boxes, cards, IPCs, and such (beer!) on the table as well (i.e. you may want more room than the board dimensions).
So, a 6 person rectangular table is likely a minimum table size, but I recommend you do a quick measurement before you have the crew over to play.
