Fast, simple, not expensive, little errata, but only reasonably fun. (War game Review)

In his review on BoardGameGeek, Brendan Whyte first turns a critical eye towards the components and rules and lists their shortcomings. Game play fares better: “…the game is fast and quite fun”. Whyte then goes into comprehensive details covering game mechanics and spares no criticism for the game opponent (AI). His discussion concerning solitaire board games vs solitaire computer games is very interesting.

Replay - Naval Battle of Guadalcanal Replay

As the Allies, Markus Stumptner planned to use what he had learned in the Coral Sea scenario and halt the expected Japanese advance toward G'canal an odd number of hexes away. Then he would advance his carriers to within airstrike range, sink the Japanese troop transport before troops could land, and continue to launch devastating airstrikes vs. enemy capital ships as he withdrew... Didn't quite work out that way...
