Axis and Allies can be played by up to five players. Each of you will control one or more world powers. On your turn, you build, deploy, maneuver, and command army divisions, air wings, and naval fleets to loosen your foes' hold on their territories. On your opponents' turns, they will bring their forces against you. The more territories you hold, the more weapons you can build—and the more powerful those weapons can be. When at the end of a turn, your side controls a set number of victory cities, you win the war.

Ben says:

Wow, these game rules are a brain full. I saw this game and it looked really fun but after looking through the game rules I am so overwhelmed and confused I give up. Maybe this is just isn't my kind of game but I sure couldn't learn how to play.
Scott says:

I remember a classmate in school being obsessed about this game but never really attempted to learn how to play since the rules looked a little intimidating. Maybe I'll have to look into now that I have more time.
