The original version of the Axis & Allies game that most people know from the Milton Bradley or Hasbro/Wizards of the Coast versions.

Axis and Allies depicts WWII on a grand scale, full global level. Up to five players can play on two different teams. The Axis has Germany and Japan, and the Allies have the USA, the United Kingdom, and the USSR. A full map of the world is provided, broken up in various chunks similar to Risk. The game comes with gobs of plastic miniatures that represent various military units during WWII. Players have at their disposal infantry, armor, fighters, bombers, battleships, aircraft carriers, submarines, troop transports, anti-air guns, and factories. All of the units perform differently and many have special functions. Players have to work together with their teammates in order to coordinate offenses and decide how best to utilize their production points. Players also have the option of risking production resources on the possibility of developing a super technology that might turn the tide of war.
