Axis & Allies: Miniatures differs from the board game franchise in many aspects, most notably in that there there is a collectible factor.

The game features plastic miniatures resembling historical war vehicles, planes, ships and infantry units belonging to over 10 different nations. Each branch of the game offers a "starter pack" which includes basic units, manuals, markers and maps and from then on the game is sold in "booster packs" that include a small number of randomized miniatures - randomized means that the units in the box may belong to any army or nation.

The gameplay is a one-versus-one tactical battle in a series of preconfigured or customized battlefields featuring different victory conditions.
