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
