Axis & Allies Global 1940

  I acquired both the Axis & Allies 1940 Editions (Europe and Pacific) in the hopes that someday I would actually play the global rules. Each edition is a game of it's own, but when you combine games you get a single epic game that needs an entire gaming day to setup and play. The board dimensions are 70" x 32". WOW! 
  I have good memories as a younger man playing the original version. Who could have thought the original could be topped .... well here it is in all its grandeur. I did actually get to play this last week and was very glad to get the opportunity.

I think this is turn 2 and the Japanese Pacific fleet is coming after what little resistance the British forces can muster in this part of the world. Yes, that is 3 fully loaded aircraft carriers, 4 destroyers, 2 battleships, 2 subs, 2 cruisers and 2 transports. Oh .. and 11 fighters, 5 tactical bombers and 1 strategic bomber on the coast!

There are a lot of Rising Suns in this shot!
