Pacific Tide by Compass Games AAR
« on: November 02, 2019, 02:07:59 PM »
Pacific Tide is a grand strategy World War 2 Pacific Theater campaign.  The movement, attacks, and unit placement are all driven by cards which specify what can be done on a turn.

Pacific Tide has an excellent bot system which can be used for solo play.  Im playing the US & Commonwealth forces against the Japanese Empire starting in 1941.  The war in China, Burma, and India is not considered.  The game focuses on the air, naval, and amphibious warfare in the Pacific.

Combat is simultaneous.  Im not providing a detailed rules breakdown.  I played the game on tabletop but am illustrating the progress of the war using the Vassal software instead of taking and editing photos of my tabletop game.  The game is deadly.  On most combat rolls there is damage on 50% of the results.

These are the start positions:


I've posted the rest of 1941 if you are interested at my blog.

Unfortunately, the table got bumped and I had to put this up.  I've played this to conclusion several times and it is an excellent game.
