During the late 80s and early 90s, I spent hours upon hours playing the board game Axis & Allies with several of my closest friends. In 1998, I purchased the video game version of this classic and thoroughly enjoyed being able to play against others online. However, I disliked the 2004 version that changed its format to real-time strategy and moved onto other games.
While browsing a local toy store this holiday season, I found Axis & Allies had been revised and expanded by Avalon Hill to include new pieces and a more detailed map. This brought back many found memories of the epic battles I engaged in while playing this game, so I decided to search the Internet for a patch to make the 1998 PC version compatible with Windows XP. During my search, I stumbled upon TripleA, an open source clone of Axis & Allies.
A quick search of the Tactical Gamer forums revealed several references to Axis & Allies, so I figured there may be some interest in revisiting this classic with a few fellow members. TripleA is free to download and plays exactly like the board game version.
If anyone is interested in playing Axis & Allies using TripleA, please let me know.
On October 29th Tactical Gamer will join the rest of the gaming world for the launch of Battlefield 4. We've been going full bore behind the scenes here of late to be ready to go the moment BF4 goes...
