This game uses the same premise of the original Pacific but with the new set of core rules. Other major changes from the original Pacific is that the Victory Point system is no longer used and the Combat Air Patrol has been revamped and now called Scramble.
The map spans from India out east to the United States and has many more Asian territories most similar to the Anniversary Edition. There are also more sea zones and island territories on this map. Additional units and rules in Pacific 1940 also gives this game more of a historic flavor that really enhances the experience as compared to 1942 edition. The board itself is very large at 35" wide by 32" tall and will match up with the upcoming release (Q3) of Europe 1940. The two maps combined (billed as measuring 60" x 32") is rumored to have multiple set ups (by year - similar to 50th AE) and it's own unique subset of rules (like Technology, etc.) Mum is the word on exactly what these might be, however.
Before your first game you will want to search the web for revisions to the rules/setup than what was initially produced (called errata - they're out there on a prominent forum dedicated to Axis & Allies). There are a number of things that have changed after feedback from players as well as additional play testing by the development team (unofficial at this point as they are probably still looking into feedback from players).Read more ›
SETUP: The Pacific 1940 board lines up perfectly with the Europe 1940 board.
The Global turns are as follows: (Germany, Russia, Japan, UK Europe, UK Pacific, Australia, Italy, US, China, and France).
In "Global 1940", Japan has a big navy that is divided into 3 main areas. There are also an insane amount of aircraft at Japan's disposal. Ground units and finances are where Japan is particularly--but understandably--lacking.
CONSIDERATIONS FOR JAPAN: Despite their military might, Japan has to ask itself the following question early on: Do you attack China and ignore everyone else (allowing them to beef up and buy technologies)? Or do you go all-out and hope for the best?
I've played Japan in several Global games, each time with different tactics. In the end, the result was always the same: Japan can just barely stay alive when it's fighting a 3- to 5-front war (Australia, UK Pacific, Russia, US, and/or China).
Focusing solely on China is generally a waste as you're only making 1 IPC gains and often losing much more in troop strength. In addition, China has the nerve-wracking ability to spawn soldiers and artillery immediately on the front lines. Mainland minor factories are a wasted investment, especially when Australia and UK come in to run you over.
However, mostly ignoring China and attacking UK and Australia is also difficult, as this also brings the US into the war. Capturing Calcutta or even Sydney has never even come CLOSE to happening--and Japan can sure use some enemy IPCs.Read more ›
After the success of the 50th Anniversary edition of Axis and Allies, I was really looking forward to this newest version. Unfortunately, there are a number of things that were a step backwards from the previous installments. It is still a fun game, but I'm not impressed with a number of factors. Let's look at the pros and cons.
1. GAMEPLAY. Once you get the new rules and setup, the game is quite deep and strategically balanced. It is a great challenge for experienced players, and I really enjoy it a lot. The new units (Tactical Bombers, Mechanized Infantry, Cruisers), countries (Italy, France, Australia, China), and the Facilities (Airbases and Naval Bases) add a lot to the strategy.
2. THE BOARD IS HUGE!! It is so awesome seeing this game set up on the giant board. When you combine the two games the board is about as long as I am tall and quite an impressive sight. Really makes you excited for the game.
1. MISTAKES IN THE RULES. This must have been rushed to production, because there are tons of mistakes in the rules and the setup. In order to get the full experience, you have to go to the website for Harris Game Design and get the new rules and setup that have been edited numerous times. I suspect that the publishers didn't want to pay people to test the game, so they just sold the rough draft and took the advice of people who complained about it on the axisandallies.org forum. Basically they used customers as play testers. Anyone who posted a suggestion should get a refund, in my opinion.
2. LOW QUALITY PARTS.
