    Fantastic game. Wore the colour off the edges of the piece in my copy.

    I love it — I’m wearing out my third copy. Thank goodness Vassal modules don’t wear out (and this module is fantastic)!

    My 2nd wargame. If you want what amounts to a digital version, get “War Plan Pacific”. I actually get more realistic-seeming outcomes with that beer and pretzels take on the Pacific War than I do with the magisterial-seeming “War in the Pacific Admiral’s Edition”.

    “Of each thing, ask: What is this, fundamentally? What is its nature and substance, its reason for being?” – Marcus Aurelius

    Clearly, The emperor was talking about the need for a certain amount of reductive simplicity when it comes to wargames depicting the most far-flung conflict in human history 😉

    Think this was my 3rd war-game after Squad Leader and Midway. Love them all; played this one so much wore some of the pieces out. Still have it.

    I loved this game, spent many, many hours of my early teenage years playing this solo or begging every friend I could to play it with me. This is the game that got me into war gaming…and I never looked back.

  6. Still holds up today (and I’m 31, so it’s not just nostalgia).
