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.
