What do you add to the game (atmosphere, not rules)?

This is the new classic game of Axis & Allies. Designed for 2-5 players, the game is set in 1942 – the historical high-water mark of Axis expansion.

Tim and I add a refrigerator full of St. Pauli Girl beer to our games.

I think the most important addition to atmosphere is music. Movie soundtracks are great, and there are a few soundtrack channels on iTunes radio for free. ANN Movie Soundtracks is my favorite.

I have wanted to add buildings to each capital on my enlarged custom board as well. A friend of mine gave me a miniature Eiffel Tower that fits perfect on my board and that inspired me to look for the same thing for each capital. I'd love to find Big Ben, the Brandenburg Gate, St. Basil's Cathedral, a White House, etc. Anyone have any tips on where I can find these things cuz my searching so far has not gone well. Ideally the base of the miniature would be about 1" x 1", but I could go a little larger than that if I have to, especially in the less crowded capitals.

For my games we like to put in movies. We just went through a ton of Bond movies. I think the first time we played my custom board we went through the last two LOTR movies, one of the Star Wars movies, and a Bond movie. It really puts into perspective how much time you've gone through lol.
