Timerover51 thanks for the information. That stuff about how many bombs you need to wreck a runway was pretty interesting. Hopefully some new info is going to come out of GenCon next week and we will have less speculating on how this new game is going to work.

Has there been anymore information about the game at all within the past month or so?  Just curious to see how this is going to play out.

I received a review copy of Guadalcanal, played one game, and posted the first preview article:

It seems unlikely that the rule book is only 4 pages. It sounds more like djensen is planning 4 articles to me.  undecided

I have to second the tell us more as fast as you can though. smiley

Excellent coup for the site. Congrats.  afro

No, silly, I'm going to preview only 4 pages or so of the rulebook. If I gave away the entire rules before AH wants them out, then they may not send review materials to me again.

The release date is 30 days away. I suspect Avalon Hill will begin with some articles for hopefully not more than a few years after its been released. I have not heard anything from funagames.com since they last published some photos for this.

How may cruisers does the game have each for Japan and USA? And secondly, were you shorted any pieces?  I have a standing prediction of a 2 piece shortage of something....( 3 times the charm)

I didn't count to see if I was shorted any pieces. The next preview will be of the counters. The control counters are USA on one side and Japan on the other side. There are enough control counters for one for each island.

If you look at the preview pictures on the game site, you will note that they have the cruisers mixed up.  The Japanese cruiser is really the Portland class USA cruiser.  And the American cruiser is the Japanese cruiser.  Did anyone notice this?  I sure hate to see them send the game to market with this mistake.  Typically the A&A games go through great lengths to preserve accuracy.
