Global War Series: Our Global War series consists of interconnected games spanning the time period of 1850-2025.  Players can play any Global War game individually, or connect them together in one monster game where victory in one affects the starting point of the next.  These games consist of both large scale wars (World War I, World War II, and hypothetical wars in 1985 and 2025), and interwar periods where players fight limited conflicts.  As players transition from one game to the next, they upgrade units to new models, and make decisions about how their nation will enter the coming era.

5 Stars
The map is excellent- thick vinyl construction, cool features like railroads, rivers, mountains, convoy routes (rules for each) printed on it. If you're an avid Axis & Allies player, you'll love this map and these rules. You'll also need your A&A pieces, plus more, to play, but considering what people spend on video games now days and the years of play you'll have with this game, it's worth every penny. Basic game has 2 set ups, 1936 and 1939, that are very different- the '36 scenario allows for the Spanish & Chinese Civil Wars, the outcome of which may or may not have been decided by the turn the big war breaks out. The tech chart is well thought out, as are the income/turn chart and battle boards, with excellent graphics and sturdy construction. What really convinced my friends and I to get this game was reading the rule book, which is available before you buy right here on the HBG site. And really, that's the worst thing you can say about this game- all the set up charts and rule book are available online for printing as many copies as you want, but you have to print them yourself. As many as you want. Oops, spilled on that page. Print another. And if you have questions about play, there's an active forum for this game on the A&A forums site. If you have the pieces, there's no reason to not buy this game.

Excellent quality of package items. And the map is amazingly detailed. Rules are adaptive for your styles of play, use what you want. Recommendation to all axis and allies players you will never go back to global 1940. Be prepared, you will want to get extras after starting so you can include all the expanded units and technology.
