An Axis & Allies too far?
Apparently there's going to be a new edition of the "base" Axis & Allies game, the 1942 edition -- and I'm decidedly "meh" about it.
The pricing puts it about 50% more than the current 1942 edition. The announcement reports a bigger board, some new sculpts and a new piece (AA gun) but unlike the other editions recently (The huge Anniversary Edition and the even more huge 1940 versions) I'm not sure what this brings to the game. The other versions were grander versions of the base game, but this sounds like it's more or less the same as the existing 1942 version. So why buy it?
