August 1942 - February 1943

An excellent application of the Conflict of Heroes mechanics to the jungles of Guadalcanal. Been waiting for this one a long time.

Just finished the second scenario with a narrow US victory even though I wasn't able to clear the village. I forgot how nice the programmed instructions are for (re)learning the game - great rulebook. My only gripe is that the hex sides are really hard to make out in the light/heavy jungle terrain (at least for my old eyes). I really like the addition of the Bushido rules which attempt to represent the tactics of the Japanese in the Pacific.

Played the first two firefights last night.

I think it's the sign of a healthy system that the changes made to bring the system to the PTO are largely organic ones (new terrain chart, new damage chit mixes) and only a couple of out-and-out new rules.

Both of the firefights we played had unusual victory conditions that we struggled with. FF2 in particular is supposed to be an American attack to take a village, but the US starts with 1 VP and the Japanese can only gain VP by killing US units, so there is no incentive for the Americans to actually attack.

Overall a solid addition to the system, but as always keep an eye out on the firefight design.

I'm signed up for a 2 hour demo of this and I'm super-pumped for it. I already own a copy, and can't wait to actually play it. It's hard finding someone who'll commit to learning an old-school(-ish) hex-and-counter war game.

Played both sides as a learning tool for setting up the game and absorbing the rules. I clearly need to go and read the rules again as I muddled up ap and cp but not bp as I moved. It's not complicated but my mind was elsewhere. Great looking game too

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.
