In the last rules article, we reviewed some of the new rules for Axis & Allies Pacific 1940 and this article will conclude going over the new rules. This article will cover the following topics: the rules for the declaration of war, China, Convoys, strategic bombing with escorts, and national objectives.
In this preview of Axis & Allies Pacific 1940 I will go over some of the changes and unique rules of this game. This new edition of rules includes new units, such as mechanized infantry and tactical bombers, naval bases, air bases, new strategic bombing rules, kamikaze, convoys, major and minor industrial complexes, new unit prices, scrambling air units, national objectives, new China rules, and declarations of war. There is a lot to absorb and many rules that can be easily overlooked.
Axis & Allies Pacific 1940 (release date: December 15, 2009) will include 5 countries to be played by 4 players. The countries are Japan, USA, China, ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps), and UK. In the last preview we saw the setup and units for Japan.
