DESCRIPTION
===========

This is a free computer version clone of the "Axis & Allies" board game
distributed by Milton Bradley.

The biggest difference between this version and all the other attempts
(both commercial and non-commercial) is that this implementation is
exclusively for the Amiga!

The game is now complete with all the 2nd Edition rules implemented.
Please see the included AmigaGuide file for more details.

The next stage in development will be to expand the Lua client functions
to enable a fully automated robot player. I'm also considering implementing
some of the other versions of the various other A&A games available
including the revised edition, Europe, Pacific and D-Day. Your input will
help determine what will be done next so do not hesitate to contact me
with your requests.
