Wargaming / Re: Recommend a good Guadalcanal game

Yeah.  Looking for a boardgame.  I've got War in the Pacific: AE that I'd like to get going (but I still cannot get transports and assault landings figured out for the life of me).

I had a look at a folio game called Cactus Air Force but it looked a little too limited.  I also toyed with picking up C3i Magazine #30 to get Mark Herman's South Seas game but that uses the Empire of the Sun system which is operational level and so a little too abstracted for what I'm hoping for.
It's very interesting to see all of this from the other point of view!  :)

There are several scenarios in Order of Battle WW2 that cover Guadalcanal well, especially the ebb and flow of forces and the different levels of naval superiority held at different times.  But they are not as complex as you would probably like.

One of my mythical front page AARs covered this extensively in the US Marines scenario.  There is another good one in the core campaign US Pacific that I cannot remember if I did an AAR or not.

(oops, came from the front page and forgot to see what thread this was on.  My only offering on a boardgame was the very old Avalon Hill game which was pretty good but certainly not great).
Wargaming / Recommend a good Guadalcanal game

I've been reading a few books on the Cactus Air Force and the Guadalcanal campaign in general and it's piqued my interest to play a game covering the naval and air aspects.  Looking for something at a grand tactical or operational level that would hopefully include the use of search planes, supply & reinforcement, pilot skill & fatigue, Japanese naval superiority in night fighting & torpedo use, etc.

I'd like to find something similar to the old Tokyo Express or even Flat Top but more streamlined (and way less ugly).  Any recommendations?

Im pretty sure JD uses an airbrush, anyone else?

Im finalizing some research but will be ordering my kit this week.  Brush, compressor, and paint station.  A few odds and ends because stuff needs stuff.

Right now mostly plan to use for priming and clear coating but hope to graduate to base coating and some shadowing eventually.

Greetings friends,

We keep unlocking new SGs at a very good pace, and we are already very close to finding the treasure and reach our new KS exclusive Social SG, the Noble Rebel and her war dog miniatures!

In addition, we want to introduce you to this new ADD-ON for Skull Tales: Full Sail! in which we have been working on. The game contains tokens that represent 5 targets (for the Adventure and Journey phases) and 12 doors for the Village tiles. This $18 ADD-ON is for those of you want to upgrade those tokens and replace them with miniatures, or even to use them in other games. The chests are placed over the target tokens, and the doors are to be used in spaces of buildings and rooms in the Village.

Due to the huge amount of unlocked SGs we have, we are running out of space on the campaign page! So weve had to replace the description on KS with an image that groups the first 38 achieved SGs. But we will place a link to a detailed description and you will still be able to read exactly what they are.

Fair Winds and Following Seas!

Started up another scenario of it last weekend - still my favorite solo game, hands down!

I may fire up this game..give it another shot. Problem is that many of the rules lack clarity, or even downright contradict each other. What we need is thorough video play through. The only one online is quite poorly done.

I agree, we do need some videos on this one.  I'd *love* to see Stuka Joe cover this one.

I built one of those.  My first tank build too.  Nice.
