It is the dawn of September 1939, and the dark clouds of war hover over the globe. China and Japan have already been at war for more than 2 years and now a Continental war is about to become a worldwide war, a World in Flames.
You, as leader of your nation, must guide your country through its darkest days, enhancing your economy, working with allies, building the units you need and then employing them effectively to defeat your manifold foes. You are in charge of your country from 1939 until 1945 or until you conquer or fall.
World in Flames shows the entire world and will be the world's biggest boardgame. That's right, for the first time ever all maps and displays will be hard-mounted boards with bound edges.
World in Flames can be played from 2 to 6 players (and can easily be played solitaire too). There are 20 campaigns you can play, from the hour long Victory in The West campaign to the 150 hour Global War mega campaign. World in Flames is the ultimate gaming challenge.
The World in Flames Collector’s Edition Deluxe game consists of:
- the World in Flames Collector’s Edition Classic game;
- Planes in Flames Collector's edition expansion;
- Ships in Flames Collector's edition expansion;
- Divisions in Flames Collector's edition expansion; and

for a total of 5 hard-mounted maps. a hard-mounted turn record chart (including Production circle), hard-mounted task-force display, 4900 counters, 2 full-colour rule books and 5 colour charts.
