Description Edit | History

Pacific War is a strategic wargame that takes players from the attack on Pearl Harbor through the climactic summer of 1945... from Australia to China, from Burma to Hawaii... from the defense of Wake Island to the Guadalcanal campaign to the massive actions fought in desperate defense of the Japanese homeland.

For the first time in a Pacific Theater game, size, subtlety, and ease of play have come together in a game of sharp action and historical accuracy. Players can become familiar with the layered Pacific War systems in the solitaire Engagement Scenarios, fighting their way through increasinly panoramic Battle, Campaign, and Strategic two-player and multi-player Scenarios. Building on the game's basic maneuver and combat systems, players learn to conduct strategic bombing, merchant shipping attition, search and detection, amphibious assaults, and extensive Operations whose duration and cost they determine themselves.

Pacific War is a source of limitless challenge and excitement for every gamer ever fascinated with the vastness and fury of the Pacific Campaigns.

6 Pacific War - Intelligence Track Wheel
Here is a handy set of wheels to keep track of your intelligence track in PACWAR. You will have to assemble, but now you can simply put the wheels in your game box when you have to put it away (your wife might have something to do with this...) and then you are setup in seconds! I have a picture of what they should look like when assembled - a large hole punch will take a ton of time off assembling. 1 1/4 and a 2 - inch are what I set these up to do. You will just have to take your time on the larger ones.
