Conflict oriented and competitive, Axis & Allies: WWI 1914 offers plenty of strategy and long-form gameplay for serious gamers and historians alike. This classic war game puts players in charge of one of the major powers, each with its own infantry, artillery, tanks, aircraft, and naval lineup. Progress is measured in yards, not miles, as the Central Powers of Germany, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Ottoman Empire face off against the great alliance of France, the British Empire, the Russian Empire, Italy, and the United States. This game board extends from Washington, DC to Bombay, and features 22 new unit sculpts, plus enfranchised WWI units like biplanes.
Note: Due to various limitations this drop is limited to members within the United States.
Designer Larry Harris says, “While playing this game, you will quickly realize that this is not World War II. There are no massive sweeps across continents with blitzing armored divisions and aircraft. Instead, there are a series of determined offensives resisted by equally determined armies dedicated to holding the line. You will find that your depleting resources of men and artillery must be deployed with great thought and efficiency. You will be fighting pretty much the way man has been fighting with each other for thousands of years—only this time the ability to kill your enemy, and for him to kill you, has become intolerably efficient."
