This is one I think I'll pick up. But when will it be available, or is it already?

Some have said March 4 and then it was said to be March 5 so by the end of the week no doubt. You can even pre-order the A&A D-Day game at http//www.chipsbits.com/ under the WW2 games section. cool

Re:Does anyone know of a definitive release date for the new Axis and Allies?
I do not think it is either March 4 or March 5, more likely the second half of the month. The confusion about March 4 was caused by someone writing that the game is released March 04, however, the '04' stood for year 2004. I believe that the revised game will be released the second half of March because Mike Selinker (lead developer) is writing a weekly article on the game (check Avalon Hill's homepage) and it became apparent of his comments that he will write (at least) two more articles in March.

It hasn't been stated yet. But sometime March-April is a good guess, as the A&A D-Day game could be planned to the 60th anniversary on 6:th June.

??? Well, I KNOW for a fact that they've got the game and are playing it up in Renton, WA and just last Saturday, Feb.28th, they 'premiered' it at the 'Seattl-Con' for those who could attend! There was also a mention about the 'release' as being this Friday, March 5 and that certainly wouldn't prevent Mike Selinker from producing his articles. I just checked on it and some folks are claiming that they'll be picking up their games this Friday at their local Hobby store. Someone in San Mateo, CA is getting theirs from GatorGames there! cool

Your sources and assumptions may be correct. I sincerely hope that they are. I would be happy if the game was released this Friday.

I, too, have been informed that I will be getting my copy of the game this Friday, March 5th, all the way across the country from Seattle in little old Cleveland, OH.

Sounds good to hear! The game will arrive pretty soon then I guess. I really like the changes, at least on paper.

A friend in Dallas got a copy this evening and sent a nice picture by email to brag. So it certainly looks like it will be available soon.

FYI

Mike Selinker wrote:

....When I wrote the columns, AH still wasn't sure what date the game would hit the warehouse (March 12 was the original estimate). Looks like it beat that handily. Still, I expect few of you will have the game before Thursday at 9 pm Pacific ...

I looked through all the online retailers I am aware of, and only Fine Games (www.finegames.com) has the game listed (as A&A 4th edition, AH), but not in all of their many various catalogs. They note this as a preorder still, but that the game should arrive this week (to them). Hopefully that helps.

I spoke with my local game shop, who should be receiving the game Thursday afternoon, if FedEx is to be believed.

I also spoke with the local Toys R Us just to see if they would be carrying the game (wondering what the popular market push was for the game), and they had no idea. But I suppose that doesn't mean anything.

Well, fairplaygames.com has it for preorder under "Axis and Allies - Revised Edition"

I think most retailers like ToysRus work on a push type of system. I can't go in there and say "Can you please order the new Axis and Allies?" since they probably don't have a way to request what is sent to the store. Boxes arrive and they have to put it on the shelf. I ran in to this issue trying to buy something from Carlton Cards. Radio Shack gets pushed stock buy you can ask them to special order something.

Maybe a manager from a ToysRus can let me know if this is not true.

Well, apparently, someone in Halifax must have some 'connections' at A-H, or even better, something on someone there, because they've already gotten their copy of the 'New' game! Good for them! For those 'foreign' folks that'd like to get this game sooner, get ahold of an 'friend' here or in Canada, and send them the money in order to get yours before they're all gone! laugh

Saw the new game ($39.95) in a game store here in California on March 4. Not, however, in Toys-r-Us yet.

Well I do hope that 'Toys R them' DO get it since I'll have a $20 discount I can apply towards it! Wooo-Hooo I was going to save it for the rumored 'Risk-LOTR' expansion for the very 1st game, but who knows when that'll happen, if ever

Thanks for the update on the 'New' A-H A&A game, but we're still waiting for any news on the highly anticipated LOTR 'Expansion' for the 1st RISK-LOTR game!??? Since it was at 'Toys R Us' that I got mine, and even saw the 'Trilogy' game as well, any idea when we could see the 'Expansion'?, thanks in advance.

Sorry, Axis & Allies (2004). I'll confesss I still plan on giving it to my friend, but I opened it. There is a list three pages long of rather small print explaining the numberous refinement. I'd have scanned it, but AH is sensitive about these things.

cool Thanks Jim, and I'm hoping that you got yours at 'Toys R Us' since I just got my $20 discount Card in the mail and if this is so, then I'm heading up to the nearest one post-haste and seeing about getting my own copy of this game.

Re:Does anyone know of a definitive release date for the new Axis and Allies?
This is now available in the UK. Played it last night. Will take a bit getting used to the new rules and new units, but very pleased with it so far..and thats from a Gamers point of view not a selling point of view.
