I'll confess I enjoy playing AXIS AND ALLIES and all its spinoffs. They are great for attracting new blood into the hobby--especially when such new blood is still in grade school. These games are still on the shelves in game and hobby stores...with such slick packaging, they (and games like them) are our best hope for attracting new players "off the street" as it were. Whatever you may think of Hasbro, Wizards of the Coast, and the "new" Avalon Hill, they have created their niche and some of us are leveraging it to lure new players to board wargaming. Talk about your favorite "new" AH game titles, play experiences, and everything you love/hate about where AH is now.
