If you are unfamiliar with the mechanics of Pacific 1940, I recommend you read my review of Pacific 1940. To recap, both games utilize the 2 new unit types (Tactical Bombers & Mechanized Infantry), Air/Naval Bases, Minor/Major ICs, Convoy Zones, 2 hit Capital ships (Carrier & Battleship - that need repairs @ Naval Bases), Scramble (from Airbases), new costs for Tanks ($6) and Carriers ($16). The Political Situation is still a big factor and National Objectives give most powers an opportunity for a boost to income.
Europe 1940 also adds a couple new wrinkles that Pacific 1940 does not have.
*Optional rule: German subs in a convoy zone cause 3 IPC loss instead of 2.
*Narrow Straights: The use of the Panama & Suez Canals have always been dependent on who controls the adjacent territory or territories.Read more ›
France is a new power, and although Paris falls shortly, the Free French forces can become valuable tools against the Axis. Italy, while not a new power, makes its revival from Anniversary Edition. Italy is best for beginners: it starts off small territory wise but starts off with a large military.
But although the game itself is epic, that epic factor triples when you combine the board with Axis and Allies: Pacific 1940. The first time I saw the two boards together, with the pieces set up, my jaw dropped, my heart stopped, and I think I stopped breathing for a full twenty seconds. The game not only looks epic, but plays like a real world war, with titanic land battles raging in Europe and Africa, and furious combat between naval and air forces in the Pacific.
Now, there are some minor downsides. For one, the combined Global game is MASSIVE! No ordinary coffee table is going to hold this giant! Also, the combined game can take hours, even days to play. However, this can easily be remedied: leave off to a good stopping point, and continue the game when everyone's ready! I can assure you that, having played almost three games in a row since getting Europe 1940, the Global game is massive fun.
So is Europe good on its own? Yes. Is it better when joined with Pacific? YES. Should you get this and Pacific 1940 if you love board games! WHY YES YOU DO!
As for ascetics, I really wish they would have thought more about the air units and made sure they were capable of being placed on the carriers with some amount of stability. Navies turn into jumbles of units that are a bit unwieldy to manage and move. The boxes for each country are welcome as it makes finding your units simple. The board is great! Although I am not a fan of folding boards this one is durable feeling and comes in two parts (I wish it would have been 6 as interlocking segments, but oh well.
When paired with pacific, Japan feels like it steals the show. It has so much more than Germany by all measures. Takes more territory has more money has more starting units. Germany still has to win the war but focus really feels shifted to Japan.Read more ›
