    There is a decent computer version of it. I dont play it much cause i cant stand computer dice.

    ALso it forces you to make all your moves at once, while we play you can move as you please. I.e. as many times as you want in a turn, but only 1 at a time.

    Other than that, the game is fuckin AWESOME. Takes a while to play, but its great for a social gathering. It keeps the bickering down unlike RISK were friends get all pissed when you beat them.

    If you play our way with open alliances to whoever you want, it gets fucking intense.

    Actually there is a computer element called "low luck" that eliminates a lot of the random factor in the game. Frankly no board game is balanced to handle how random dice can be, and in order to maintain the strategy tournament players use the "low luck" feature.

    The program is called "TRIPLEA"...just type "Triple A axis and allies" in google. It's a free download and you can play in the lobby with everyone else who has it. I'ts really fun and much better than moving a bunch of board game pieces.

    Red you'd like it Im sure.

    Aye, it takes slightly longer than Risk;p

    We've houseruled that large battles are 8+ pieces on either side, instead of 6+, as that tended to hand out a lot of political points. We've also removed a few of the cards, as a few are really unbalanced. We've also created an Upkeep fee of 1 per unit over 10 in a region you don't own, and 2 per unit over 16 to prevent France and Austria building stupidly large armies and just keeping them in one region.

    Once had Spain land 4 troops in St. Petersburg and all but 1 got killed by the Russian winter. Was hilarious! Lost artillery, cavalry and infantry, with only one infantry left!

    The reason being. If you all move at once, in my rule set. Russia would roll germany right off.

    So 9 rounds equal bit more than 2 years. Just like history.

    I play the board game with friends. At least I did til we all got seperated by life. Now I play online with this http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/s..._platforms.zip

    It's much more stable than the original game that was released god knows how long ago. It's open source and has all of the different scenarios and rulesets.

    not anything to look at but it's fun.

    Guys get Triple A. Trust me its the best A y A freeware client out there. It works through Java and is a blast to play.

    By the way once you start getting good games get down to the 2-3 hour range tops.

    when the game moves that fast it kinda takes away some of the fun for it.
