I wish someone would reprint this game... I am still kicking myself for giving it away years ago...  What was I thinking?   :idiot2:

Well, I backed it, because I don't learn from past mistakes.

Alright, it looks like creating Tokyo Express for PC is going to have to be my retirement plan now.

None of you guys better steal my idea!   :knuppel2:

Not me man. I used to know a Japanese girl the guys all called 'Tokyo Express'. Can't imagine why though.  ::)

Toonces. if you're really planning on Tokyo Express, Jack Greene of Quarterdeck Games, is semir-retired and on Facebook.  There probably isn't another person in the gaming community, who knows more about the Solomons Campaign. 
You should pick his brains.
Also, a new book, The Gun Club, gives a great account of the destroyer Duncan at the Battle of Cape Esperance.
(The only caveat is the author's father died at the battle.  He is unrealistically harsh on Admiral Norman Scott, I think.)
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

"When all other trusts fail, turn to Flashman." — Abraham Lincoln.

"I have enjoyed very warm relations with my two husbands."
"With your eyes closed?"
"That helped."  Lauren Bacall

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.

Good luck with Tokyo Express
I owned the game but actually never played it
I feel Carrier less difficult to step in

With 5 days left there's only around $6000 (27%-28%) to go. Hoping, hoping, hoping...

There is actually simple ways to increase the pot
Consider high pledges or just look at the latest add-ons

I had to go look up some of my logins in order to post about this kickstarter everyplace I could think of.  Good luck.  Hoping to send some "Japanese" to Iron Bottom Sound soon.  :-"
