If you’re a diehard World War II grognard, then Axis Empires Ultimate Edition (AE) is the game for you. It’s the final evolution of our popular series of strategic games on the global struggles of 1937 to 1945 and beyond. Inside this box are the newest editions of both Totaler Krieg (TK) and Dai Senso (DS). TK covers the war in Europe, while DS does the same for Asia and the Pacific. Each game is individually playable as a standalone event, or players can combine the two to cover all of World War II. Both TK and DS have been thoroughly updated and playtested for historicity, game balance, and ease of play. The maps, counters, and cards have been given a refreshing makeover to improve the look and feel of the game. Many new counters and 200 cards have been added to allow for more options.

But there’s more! This package also includes Schiffskrieg (SK), the long-awaited air and naval optional expansion for the AE system. For those who want more detail in handling air/naval operations, SK adds individual capital ships (down to the heavy cruiser level) and air wings to sortie and fight with.

Plus there’s Dice of Decision II (DoD), an expanded random campaign generator players can use to create endlessly fascinating alternate-history situations for their AE games. What if Germany had won the Great War? Or the Tsar still ruled over Russia? Or the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty failed to prevent a shipbuilding arms race? Or Japan’s 1931 invasion of Manchuria had unfolded differently? Or an aggressive France had chosen to occupy the Rhineland in 1937? All these possibilities—and many more—await your discovery with DoD.

Further options inside AE include Fortunes of War random event cards, the possibility of a Separate Peace war between the West and Soviet Russia after 1945, new scenarios, and much more. Infinitely replayable, completely expandable, always enjoyable—Axis Empires is the ultimate “desert island” World War II sandbox game you’ve been looking for!

5 of 5 The one I have been waiting for May 13, 2024
Reviewer: Tony Doran from Lawrenceburg, TN United States  
I have been war gaming for more than 50 years. This is the game on WwII I have been waiting for all this time. The production values are breathtaking and the box contents are overwhelming. If I had a fire, this is the one I would save.

5 of 5 Impressive December 5, 2023
Reviewer: John Tummey from Leeds, West Yorkshire United Kingdom  
Top production quality. One of the few games I have not had to create my own SOP - Seems to have been designed to be able to jump straight in. Currently on my fourth (and final) learning scenario. When I have finished playing vanilla I can then try it with SK and / or Dod.
