Are You Looking To Play Axis & Allies In Edmonton?
I have always been fascinated with the events of World War II, whether it was the tragedy, innovation, industrial movement, sacrifice, or the culture shock that took place because of it I was fascinated as a kid and even more so today.
I remember growing up playing with my little green army men where I would line them up in formations and take turns with my friends shooting them down with elastics until only one army remained. And of course, learning about World War II in school and hearing stories from my Grand Father pulled me in even more. Over the years reading books of both fact and fiction continued to fuel my desire to learn more, and now today I find myself searching for great movies and documentaries that depict war stories from both the Axis & Allies point of view.
From blockbuster movies such as Saving Private Ryan, The Dirty Dozen, and Schindlers List to Das Boot, Downfall, and Dunkirk, and great documentaries such as The Battle Of Midway, The Soviet Story, and The Battle Of Britain. Now today Netflix World War II In Color has my attention.
All of these movies, books, and stories have played a part in my desire to play Axis & Allies as often as I have been able to find willing participants to take part in this amazing war strategy game. This game is not for the faint of heart who expect to be finished in 30 minutes to an hour, plan to spend at least four hours letting the battles unfold before you, watching your Alley partners plan their next moves and the opponent Axis commanders try to foil your well-laid plans.
The game requires that you spend time both planning your strategy and reacting to the strategy of your opponents, but you must also pay attention to allocate your limited production and building up your battered battlefronts. Make big decisions and plan attacks while navigating geopolitical issues against the world leaders of the time.
This was a pivotal time in history and the game does a good job at painting broad simulation of this fascinating and complicated time in history.
