After 3 1/2 years of waiting, I finally have it in hand! To gear up, I recently played two rounds of Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson Ridge and I've been watching HBO's The Pacific again.

Apart from one Time of Soccer play, at the beginning of the month, a couple of plays of Zulus on the Ramparts! and without counting my delicious 2 players game of Hoplomachus: Origins with Ibbo the other day, that's the first time I have more than an hour to sit and play on my own. And it feels Gooooooooood !



Out of curiosity, I played the firsts scenarii of Conflict of Heroes: Guadalcanal – The Pacific 1942. Not the best solo game, per se. Definitely will be worth waiting for the solo version that will come out... one day. I assume the wait will be much shorter than the three years needed to release the - brilliant - solo version for the older brother Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! (second edition).

The two brothers are almost twins. They share wonderful components and very similar rules.



However, there are some new rules to mimic Japanese behavior or Pacific theater novelties. If you're familiar with the previous opus, the novelties are very well marked into the rulebook and easy to spot. Academy Games knows how to simplify player's life

Counterpart, but not a definitive opinion, since it would be premature to have one, I've got the feeling it might be very - too? - similar to the previous opus gameplay wise, despite the novelties.
According to the units and current firefights, it's mainly infantry combat into jungle. For me, as a European, it's always exotic. But, I would have liked to see a major landing somewhere. I guess it doesn't really fit the game's scale, though. And after all, it was CoH - Guadanacanal, not CoH - Peleliu whistle ...

A nice companion piece to Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson Ridge. Here's the same battle from another angle!

Really wanted to play some beach map CoH, so I pulled out the Memoir '44 beach and built a Japanese base.


(Mind you the Japanese were wearing Russian uniforms for disguise.)


Originally, I was going to play the Marines (Germans), but seemed like the solodeck I chose was more focused on attacking, so I decided to play the Japanese right before the start.

The action ran pretty well.



The Marines almost captured the base worth 2 VP's, but they ran out of time.

Final score: Japanese +3.


The only thing that has bothered me about the solo expansion is the Command Cards. They work great for balance, but sometimes the AI ends up with endless free moves at the end of the round. That throws off the balance of the game.

So, now I give the AI the same amount of CAP's as the Player, and each Command Card subtracts 1 CAP. If they draw a Command Card when they are out of CAP's, They pass.

If I end up liking the Conflict of Heroes system (currently trying out the Eastern Front stuff), this is an obvious purchase for me, since I've always been heavily interested in the Pacific theater. If I don't like it, it'll drop off the list. But that doesn't seem particularly likely, especially given all the rave reviews for the solo system.

Just confirmed this was added to my kickstart order delivery for Mare Nostrum: Empires. It feels like an eternity that we've been waiting for this along with Conflict of Heroes: First Men In – Normandy 1944 (which was originally slated to come out before this). Well it's finally available and hopefully will be in my hands in about a week or so depending on how shipments go out. I'm expecting a lot more infantry engagement in this one and the honor requirements for the Japanese should provide some brutal attacks to deal with. I'm sure the quality of the board and bits will rival the original Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! – Russia 1941-42. Stoked.

As an aside, a few years ago I won a Conflict of Heroes tournament at Gamestorm in Portland, Oregon. The prize was a certificate for 50% off a future Academy games purchase. Back then I communicated with Uwe that I wanted to hold out and use it for either this or First Men In which were supposed to have been released "shortly". Well I'm very grateful to Academy games that they just honored my certificate and allowed me to grab this one at 50% off. That's super customer service in my book. A+++

BtW and FWIW, if you pre-order now from Academy games you'll get the Army Expansion counter sheet exclusive thrown in for free. Not sure if that's an incentive but maybe for the Completionist it's enough to put you over the top.
