TripleA is a free turn based strategy game and board game, similar to Risk, or Axis & Allies. Known for its multiplayer on the online lobby, it also allows Play-By-Email and network (LAN) play, as well as single player vs AI or hotseat. It has over 100 games and maps that can be downloaded from the user community. It is open source, needing only Java 5 to run (can run on Windows, Mac, Linux, etc). Supports savegames, encrypted dice gen, low luck, and other options. Recreate World War 2 with the Axis pushing through to Moscow and Japan devouring the Pacific, or recreate Napoleon's march across Europe, or Rome defeating the Carthaginian Empire, or even Sauron conquering Middle Earth, or Zombies taking over America! If you have ever played a game where you push little plastic/virtual pieces around, roll dice, conquer the lands of your enemy, & produce new pieces to conquer with, you will be able to jump right into TripleA!

The map editor is powerful and there are already many beautiful maps you can play against friend or computer. And the best thing, ITS FREE ! DOWNLOAD IT NOW, WHY ARE YOU WASTING YOUR TIME TO READ THIS !
This game provides a lot of what I look for in a strategy game. You get a chance to revisit World War I to see if the Allies, including Italy, can hold off the initial numerical advantage of Germany, Austria(-Hungary) and the Ottoman Empire or to try win from the German (and Central Powers) side. Because the British had colonies around the globe, they will figure prominently in the outcome whether as an ally or an enemy.
