Description Edit | History

(from ADG website :)

World in Flames is Australian Design group's international award winning game that is the strategic game of World War II. Five full-colour maps portray all the theatres of war: Europe, Russia, Africa, the Middle East, India, Asia, the Pacific, the Atlantic and (most importantly) Australia.

[...]Counters represent the armies and corps, the aircraft carriers, the naval task forces and the air groups that took part. Everything you need to re-fight the greatest conflict in history.

Two to six players make the strategic decisions that decide the fate of nations. What forces to produce, where to commit them, when and how? No two games of World in Flames play the same, no strategy is foolproof, any decision may have unforseen, long-term consequences.

World in Flames contains all the latest top quality components, 1400 counters, 5 maps, 2 combat charts, one Production Circle and the comprehensive rules and scenarios booklets, that have been extensively updated and revised based on 2 million playing hours of the world's greatest game.

2 Force pool additions by year. v1.1
These charts list the number of counters entered into the force pools for each game year sorted by nation and sphere (land, sea or air). They will tell you if a counter is missing but will not tell you what that counter is, however due to the breakup by nation and sphere you do have a good start on finding out what is missing.

2 DOD3 Unofficial Victory
This is a DOD3 optional victory condition rule that replaces the victory condition RAW. This is an option our group has used and it seems to keep all three sides interested in the game until conclusion. It also give some fun "targets" to aid in victory.

10 US Entry Options - Cards
Hi. These are just the US options as cards. I found it much easier for the US strategy having cards with the options available so you can keep an easy track of the options chosen and the ones you want to choose. Please let me know of any errors in them.
