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.

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.

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.

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.

WE met the designer of this game, Larry at a 43rd Infantry Division National Guard yearly anniversary celebration this year. We saw the game just before the finishing touches were put on. It was fascinating and such great thought went into the product. If you served our country at Guadacanal or had family members who you knew there - it is a great tie to their experiences and also a great game to own. We so enjoy the game.

I bought this game as a Christmas gift for my husband who owns several other "Axis & Allies" games. He enjoys playing it with our son and son-in-law. For people who enjoy this type of game, this is a good one.
