Avalon Hill has announced that they are reprinting the Anniversary Edition of the classic Axis and Allies. Originally published in 1981 by Larry Harris Jr, Axis and Allies has remained a fan favorite, and a true board game classic, although some of the original rules could arguably have needed some tweaking here and there. The Anniversary Edition, originally released in 2008 to celebrate the company’s 50th year, was gigantic and beautiful, with the biggest board ever in an Avalon Hill game, and contained over 650 pieces. The Anniversary edition adds a 3rd Axis power, Italy, and keeps 2-6 players engaged for, well, quite a long time (6 hours on the box).
