Philips Media has a CD-i version of Axis & Allies by CapDisc
available now for US$37.50, call 1-800-CAPDISC in the U.S.  If you
are interested in ordering discs for resale, call the Philips CD-i
Direct Orderline at 1-800-824-2567 in the U.S.  Also, there have
been a few attempts by various readers of rec.board.games to produce
a working version.  [If you want your program mentioned, please let
me know.]

Chris Adamson, maintainer of the 'CD-i Reviews & Info' web page,
http://www.america.net/~plucky/cd-i.html, gives the following
review of A&A for CD-i:

"For now, it's the only game in town as far as computer-mediated A&A
goes, but CapDisc's version for the CD-i leaves much to be desired.
The first of its two great sins is the interface:  painfully confusing,
your controls change radically depending on what you're doing. 
Meanwhile, the save feature consumes 75% of the CD-i player's storage
(6,500 bytes to remember where the pieces are for one turn?), making
it practically useless.  The upside?  Popular house rules are
available, and you get digitized B&W war footage running constantly
at the bottom left of the screen."

Many readers, disappointed by the lack of a computerized version of
Axis & Allies, have repeatedly asked other netters what other games
exist on computer that are similar to A&A.  Due to the variety of
games that might fill this role, we suggest you ask on the newsgroup
comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.strategic.  You are bound to get some helpful
replies.
