I really enjoy Memoir '44. The beauty of M44 game system is that when you get tired of the original scenarios in the base game, there are 3 separate army packs that can add a lot to the game. I was interested in the Pacific Theater expansion, because of family that served there. I have a great uncle who was at Iwo Jima and survived one of the bloodiest campaigns in the Pacific. The first day I got this game, I spent a good while explaining to my six year old son, how important the sacrifice our men made to defeat the Japanese. We played 4 times that day including the Iwo Jima, "Meat Grinder", scenario in honor of Uncle George.

With this expansion, you get a full set of Japanese infantry, tanks, and artillery, along with a beautiful set of terrain geared towards island terrain. Playing the Japanese is quite fun, because they have three new abilities that really spice up the strategic choices. These three abilities really reflect the ferocious and tenacious fighting spirit of the Japanese military of that time. They must ignore the first flag (retreat) rolled against, they get to attack with an extra die when at full strength next to an enemy, and they can move an extra hex and still battle if they can move next an enemy unit. Truly a tough opponent to contend with, and you feel it when you play the Marines on the Guam Japanese Counter Attack scenario and the visibility is one hex. Did I mention the "Night Visibility" rules? Yep, this expansion comes with a special Night Visibility card where the scenario starts in darkness, and the marines have to roll 4 dice before their turn in hopes of getting a "star" to move daylight hours up on the chart to reach full visibility and bring their artillery to bear on the Japanese.

Lets be clear you need to have the original Memoir 44 game, before you should consider buying this. I'd also buy the terrain pack as well just to be safe. However asumming you've got these, this is a teriffic addition to the memoir series. A combination of war game and board game which is set in WW2 in the US / Japan theater.

8 new scenarios are provided which vary considerably. What always amazes me is how the creators of this game have managed with only dice and some command/tactic cards and rules, to recreate some of the characteristics of the original battles. Its very very clever. Having said that don't think this is hugely complicated. It really isn't, and the basic principals can be picked up really quickly.

When you first start setting the game up it will probably take 15 mins, and the games on average will probably last over an hour. However as you get to know the rules a game can be over much quicker than that.

Overall a superb addition, as are all the expansions I bought so far.

Great expansion, like the updated rules, love the pieces, just seems overpriced for what it is.

My son and I have only played a few of the scenarios but it's been cool so far. I like how they figure out the nuances of each theatre and represent those simply in their expansions. Like with Eastern Front Expansion they give you the Commisar and with the Pacific Theatre Expansion there are tweaks to accomodate for the Japanese soldiers training and influences. They also give you history around it, so for me.. .this becomes great learning opportunities for my kids (and myself) especially when you see it affect a battle.

My only wish is that the expansion price reflected what you get... but hey, I still pay it :-) and it's getting good raiting, so I guess you could argue it's worth it.

Of course the base game is necessary to have, as this expansion adds Japanese army miniatures, terrain tiles, scenarios and player aids specific to the Pacific campaign to Memoir 44 with which to do battle with the base game US army miniatures (with rules and tokens to turn them into U.S. Marines in several of the battle scenarios included in the expansion) on the board from the base game.

Additional battle scenarios for the Pacific Theater, CBI (China-Burma-India)campaign, and 2nd Sino-Japanese War (1937-45) can be found on the Days of Wonder website among many player created scenarios for just about every theater of WW2.

The Pacific Theater expansion pack (need Memoir 44 base game to play) adds a few additional key rules and 'twists' to the Memoir 44 game. This expansion really adds additional flavor and flair to the already interesting base game. I've played 3 scenarios already with my brother (playing each scenario at least twice as we 'switch' sides Japan/U.S.). Interestingly, this expansion pack only has 12 Japanese tanks (whereas the original base game and Eastern Front have 24 tanks per 'army' type. Not a big deal as non of the scenarios need more than 12 Japanese tanks - part of the realism I suppose that tanks weren't heavily deployed in the Pacific Theater...

Once we master this I'll look into playing one of the other expansion packs next. If you have a group of 'trusted' people who you play Memoir 44 with you could swap expansion packs occasionally to make your $ go extra far.
