    User Summary

    Sub-titled "The War in the Pacific 1932-1948, this is a a World War II Pacific Theater wargame that allows you to recreate various campaigns. The game has been described by some as a remake of S.P.I.'s War in the Pacific (first edition).

    The contents include:

    • '7'-22" by 34" multi-colors Game Mapsheets
    • 2,580 1/2" by 1/2" & 672 1/2" by 3/4" cardboard game counters
    • '2'-Rules, Scenarios, & Tables Booklets- (of 64 pages)

    Some of the Scenarios include:

    • '1932'-Mini Campaign-Attack by the I.J.N. on the Panama Canal with an 'Arms Race' as an *Option*-(and including the 'cancelled' vessels for both sides);
    • 'Training' Scenarios:
      • the Relief of Wake Island
      • Battle of the Gilbert Isles;
    • Midway;
    • Burma;
    • Philippines Sea;
    • "Fantasy Sci-Fi" game on "The Final Countdown"-(the Movie where a Modern Nuclear Carrier is "sent back in time to just before Dec. 7th, 1941");
    • entire Pacific Campaign.

    The turns represent a Week's time, there is a method for determining "Initiative" for one side or the other, and many detailed minutiae for those 'buffs' staunch enough to make their way through this.
