Axis and Allies is a boardgame for 2 to 5 people made by Milton Bradley that simulates World War 2 from 1942. Think risk and increase complexity 20 fold. The game peices include tanks, infantry, submarines, bombers, fighters, battleships, aircraft carriers, and more! All the fighting is done with dice and complex game rules. It's awesome because it's more involving than most boardgames, but at the same time it's not really a hardcore wargame where you need a calculator and 26 sided dice.
