Axis & Allies is a series of World War II strategy board games. Originally designed by Larry Harris and published by Nova Game Designs in 1981, the game was republished by the Milton Bradley Company in 1984 as part of the Gamemaster Series of board games. This edition has been retroactively named Axis & Allies: Classic to differentiate it from later revisions.
The 11th A&A board game in the series, Axis & Allies: Europe 1940 was released in August, 2010. As you can see, Trent registered domains for Axis & Allies 1940, 1941, 1942 and 1943, with an emphasis on 1942.
Are we on the brink of getting Axis & Allies strategy games from Beamdog for PC and tablets?
