Description Edit | History

This game resembles Axis & Allies, with some more complex rules.

From the manual:
Europe at War is a multi-player game that is a simulation of World War II in Europe. One or two players play the side of the Axis Powers and one or three players play the side of the Allied Powers. The object for the Axis Players is to conquer Europe while the Allied Players must try to stop them.

In order to achieve their goals, the players have at their disposal playing pieces that represent infantry, tanks, planes, bombers and various types of combat vessels. These pieces are built by each player in accordance to the amount of money the player has available and to the force pool available. During each turn, all players have the opportunity to move, to perform combat and to built additional units.

More Information Edit | History

Europe At War starts in 1939 with Germany at war with Poland, France and the UK.

Though the game may be considered inspired by Axis & Allies Europe, the rules are slightly more complex and the map much richer in detail (the picture of the map used below doesn't do it justice, as it is in reality very clear).

Active countries are France, UK, Poland, USSR and USA (Allies) and Germany, Italy, Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Finland (Axis Powers), with a different setup for 2, 3, 4 or 5 player game. There are special rules for the Fall of Poland, the Fall of France, U.S. entry, Russian entry as well as for Italian and Axis Minors entry, which make the game not as striaghtforward as Axis & Allies Europe, but add a definite touch of reality to gameplay.

Components:

  • 1 24x36 colour map of Europe
  • 1 Rules booklet
  • 290 plastic playing pieces
  • 119 die cut counter
  • 70 mini chips
  • 6 8d dice

4 War ladder
To make sure we do not forget the actions of the neutral USA and USSR in the first phase of the game, I developped this registration chart (the war ladder).

3 Technology Development Registration Chart
This file can be used to register the technological development during the game. Since a game usally takes more than one session to finish and using markers is not the most convenient way of keeping track of tech developments, I find this chart very usefull. Starting techs are already filled in for each power.
