The announcement was released on March 31 to vendors.

Here are more details on the new game:
http://www.axisandallies.org/p/new-game-announcement-axis-al...

I wonder if the game will hold to the claim that it only takes 1.5 - 2 hours to play. They must be borrowing from some of the ideas from Euro/Strategy games. Maybe there is a limited number of turns?

This is interesting to me, as I might get my son and wife to play this version! Also, as an enfranchised player, I do love this aspect:

New Units: A key feature for enfranchised players is an entirely new set of unit sculpts. There are 16 all-new designs such as the P-40 Warhawk, Tiger Tank, AVRO Lancaster, FW-190, IS-2 tank, HMS Hood, He-111, and the Akagi Aircraft Carrier. These playing pieces can be used in any other A&A game, and will be desirable to players who seek to expand their A&A collections.



I am definitely getting this!

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

This might be worth buying. I'm still waiting for this series to feature more Soviets on the cover come on guys, the Cold War is over.

32 figures per nation seems really low. Anyone know how many there are per country in the 1942 version?

370 game pieces altogether - this new one will be one for kiddies, it seems. A pity.

I've played and enjoyed every version since the original Nova Games release in '81 but find myself underwhelmed by this.

But having said that, I ditto Gittes above in demanding more Soviets on the cover cool

I just checked the Wizards of the Coast Website and looked for the flyers and they don't exist. Maybe this was an April Fools from Hasbro.

A&A 41release has been announced!!!

Krieghund weighed in after April 2nd, so I'm assuming it's for real. With a list of $30, it seems targeted to get many people to get it mostly for pieces for their other games.
