Below is my Top 10 list of games covering WWII Pacific Theater of Operations (PTO) on a grand strategic scale. These are games that meet all of the following criteria: (1) focuses on WWII; (2) focuses on the PTO; (3) strategic in scale covering the war as is raged throughout the PTO; (4) primarily a wargame, but can address elements of the political, diplomatic and economic pressures associated with WWII and the PTO; (5) addresses the "theme" in an interesting or compelling manner that leaves the player with a better understanding of the PTO during WWII (and its various aspects); and (6) fun to play (understanding that this can be very subjective, especially for wargames). This is a list of the BEST! As always, your mileage may vary and some entries may be "controversial." As such, please feel free to comment, debate, or just express your own point of view. Feel free to thumbsup this list (to draw attention and more comments) or any pleasing, interesting or thought provoking entries. If I missed one that you feel is essential or I am "insane for not listing" (trust me, it has been said before), then by all means let the comments fly . . . just be civil. FYI - I am a sucker for comments and discussion and usually thumbsup most if not all of them.

I specifically excluded games that cover (or are intended to cover) the entire war--as those are the subject of Top 10 Strategic WWII Games.

I find that these lists sometimes are helpful for others seeking similar games and the more rich the discussion for more useful the list.

For a complete listing of my Top 10 lists, see--MetaList: Nap's Top 10 Lists.

As always, thanks for reading and participating!
