Anyway, as many of you know, there are 2 official versions of the board game, Axis & Allies:
They are both fun, but imo, the revised version improved the game as much as broodwar improved SC. You can buy the revised game at any board game store in any mall for around $45-50.
If you haven't played it, then you should! It is WAY fun. Google it and read about it.
Anyway, the important thing I had to share is that there is a completely free version of the game available for download online (Its called TripleA) and it follows the rules of the game perfectly. I am really impressed. The computer AI sucks bad, but then again, it is a free game. You can fairly easily link up to games over the internet with the built in function of the game.
But I warn you, people who play online are extremely Gosu. I consider myself pretty good at the game and I usually lose online.
Here is the link to download the game: http://triplea.sourceforge.net/mywiki
Here is a fansite for the online: http://aaazone.amicron1.com/default.asp
It has guides to how to use the game and so on.
Finally some screenshots:
And...on a side note, if you loved playing Risk as a kid (or just love world domination games), here is a very fun way to play it online....has a free demo (which you can use multiple times if you delete the necessary reg files):
"Lux" is the name of the game
If you pay for the game, you get to be ranked, host games, and win achievments and view your stats online.

Enjoy your world domination. I have absolutely loved both these games.
