Product Description

Product Description

A sweeping conflict in the South Pacific where naval might leads to air superiority.

From the Manufacturer

Japan occupies the Solomon Islands, interfering with Allied supply lines in the South Pacific. In a surprise attack, the Americans capture Guadalcanal and its invaluable airstrip. As the Imperial Navy struggles to regain and strengthen its hold on the Solomons, the U.S. must press its counterattack in order to seize control of the island chain. Axis and Allies Guadalcanal challenges you to command a fleet of ships, direct aircraft, and deploy ground forces in order to dominate the enemy in one of the crucial campaigns of World War II. A sweeping conflict in the South Pacific where naval might leads to air superiority. Axis and Allies: Guadalcanal challenges you to control sea zones and island groups while managing troop and supply transport and directing land, sea, and air forces in one of the decisive campaigns of the Second World War's Pacific Theater.

It is still a fun game overall.
C. R. Williams
Because of the constant pressure of the victory points system players must be bold and the game is tense making it a good wargame.

I love original axis and allies but sometimes you do't have 8 hoursto play a game.

IN A NUTSHELL

This is a wargame for 2 players. Other than a visual board and game pieces it shares little with the original Axis and Allies game. The rules make for a competitive and tense game that takes around 3 hours to play. The best game of the new Axis and Allies series, better than D-Day or Battle of the Buldge but it is a game only for those that like wargames and have experience playing them and are willing to sacrifice accuracy for playablity and fun. A nice historic setting.

THE FULL REVIEW

If you are aware of the Solomon Island Campaign at all, then you are familiar with Guadalcanal. An important part of the Pacific Campaign. It is here that the USA started their offensive against Imperial Japan. Not really a turning point in WW2 (Midway would have this honour) but the first step on a long road of the defeat of Japan. Guadalcanal was the scene of bitter land fighting between the US Marines, later the Army and the Japanese. While at sea the losses on both sides were so heavy that Sealark Sound, the stretch of water between Guadalcanal, Savo Island, and Florida Island of the Solomon Islands, became kown as Ironbottom Sound due to the amount of ships and planes that went to the bottom in a series of engagements. So historically this makes a nice setting and the reason for its educational value, but keep in mind this game is about the naval and ground action in the Solomon Islands, not only Guadalcanal.

As for the Game, this is not another Axis and Allies game, other than the models it uses very different mechanics.

Game title is a little misleading as the game is more about the campaign to secure the Solomon Islands and not Guadalcanal. I would have liked to have seen the game designed for the battle of the island itself to replay how that campaign might have gone had the Japanese recaptured Henderson field.

I like the random variable of the dice box, it really changes how you have to consider risk in your strategy versus the other A&A games. It is still a fun game overall.

While not perfectly true to history (which is ok for a game), Axis&Allies Guadalcanal does bring history to life in an interactive and fun fashion. It is an excellent way for parents to spend time with their kids (in my case a dad with his lad) on a rainy afternoon. The rules are not complicated, especially compared to a number of the wargames from my youth, and the use of miniatures vs. cardboard pieces adds both a visual and tactile enjoyment to the gaming experience. This version, along with the other Axis & Allies versions, have proven to be such fun that a number of the families in the neighborhood have purchased their own versions and the boys spend hours playing Axis&Allies combined with their normal running around outside. I highly recommend this and the other versions for history lovers who would like a fun way to introduce some history to their kids.

This is an fine example of a PLAYABLE, fun wargame. Although it may seem simple at first, the rules are quite few, the strategy is everchanging. We have never had a game come out even near the same. The battlebox seems quite strange at first, but actually works very well forcing you to mix your naval forces as you would in reality. The Japanese have to work hard to win.

Works out some kinks present in the original game with more rules about what moves when. Overall a quick play but doesn't allow a number of things that would make it more varied (ie, casualties doen't shoot)

Game arrived quickly no problems with order or shipping. I love original axis and allies but sometimes you do't have 8 hoursto play a game. I like this game because the scope of the game is smaller then original axis and allies so game can be a shorter amount of time to play and finish a game in a resonable amount of time. I like the addition of the cruisers to the game. I wish they would go back and add them to the original axis and allies.
