War in the Pacific Released

WDG is pleased to announce the publication of Steve Pole's War in the Pacific 1941`-1945. The game allows players to replay the conflict between the Empire of Japan and the Allies in the Pacific Theater of World War II. WIP is a campaign game on a grand strategic scale. Random event cards reflect the major political and technological changes/events which occurred during the War; depots are used to stress the crucial importance of logistics; and there is a mechanic that generally effects simultaneous movement (campaigning). The heart of WIP is the use of Resource Points which players spend to conduct their campaigns. The Japanese player starts with more RPs and it is his challenge to use them effectively in the first months and years of the war before the immense resources of the Allies kick in and begin to be felt.

Game components include the following:

- 12-page Rule Book

- Extended Example of Play Booklet

- Player Reference Sheets

- 22” x 17” Hexagonal Map of the Pacific Theater

- 208 Unit Counters and Game Markers

- 40 Random Event Cards

- Two Six-sided Dice (2D6): One Red, One White

N - The Napoleonic Wars First Complete AAR

From Ben Madison, designer of N - The Napoleonic Wars. Below the text is a snap of the map from the play test.

Just finished my first complete end-to-end run-through on N - The Napoleonic Wars and I was quite happy with the results; in late 1809 Napoleon invaded Russia and suffered a catastrophic defeat -- even worse than historical, which set the stage for the rest of the turn. The Coalition followed up with a giant battle in Austria which the French lost; the Imperial Guard broke, French morale collapsed and the French retreated to Italy. A subsequent battle in Italy drove the French back to France itself and Napoleon quickly surrendered. (And in this world, Wellington had nothing to do with it; he was mopping up French forces in Spain.)
