From Avalon Hill's website:

To celebrate the 50-year anniversary of Avalon Hill, Axis & Allies is launching its most expansive game ever. The AXIS & ALLIES ANNIVERSARY EDITION will feature the debut of Italy as the third Axis nation, the introduction of the cruiser unit to the naval lineup, and the largest Axis & Allies board to-date measuring 24x46 inches. With over 600 pieces, players will be able to recreate and decide the outcome of WWII like never before. The Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition is designed and developed by Larry Harris, the original designer of Axis & Allies, and will release on October 23, 2008 with an MSRP of $100.

So it should be a 6 player game then?
Or is it just another third colour of Axis units controlled by the German player?

If it is units for a 6th player, it does leave the player many units on the board. One infantry unit in Italy, one infantry unit somewhere in Africa and a battle ship unit in the Mediteranian Sea.

But let's see what Avalon Hill comes up with!

I'm happy for you A&A guys getting a new edition of your favorite game, but man, as an old time Avalon Hill fan, it sure is depressing to see them celebrating their anniversary by releasing new editions of games they didn't originally publish.

The AH of my youth is gone baby gone.

Greece: 1 Infantry ( they were in charge of Greece as per agreement with Germany)


North and South Italy? Greece? That gives me hope that they might have finally given us a European board that opens up gameplay for a change in Europe. Want to see the new map as that will determine for me if I purchase ... here's hoping they have a lot of new territories! Where did you find the new lineups? I'd like to seek out new provinces.
