After playing G40 and 1914 for awhile now.  Sometimes I get nostalgic and dust off the 1986 A&A, Revised and Spring 42 1st edition, normally beer is involved.  We just played this pacific game and I have to say we had a blast and it doesn't take a weekend.  I like the red japan mini's as it give me another color army in case we decide to modify another game and add a country or something.  It's really amazing how all the A&A games seem to stand the test of time.

I agree. I got out mine earlier this week and reread the set up charts amd looked at the map, in a fit of nostalgia. I played Thai game quite a lot face to face. Something I can rarely do these days (with my newer games).

I am like you guys.....broke out the old game a while back, and have been playing the heck out of it.    We have added a few "house rules" and introduced "Cruisers" and Escort Carriers to the mix.   Really enjoying, and think it plays much better than the original set-up.

We just played a modified version of the 1st Edition Pacific game in my summer gaming class, using the Red Minis.  It had 6 players, 5 Allied and the Japanese.  The Allied were the U.S., Australia, British India, the Netherlands, China, and Japan.  The Netherlands did not have an IC but could buy some units from the United States using income from the refineries in the Dutch West Indies and Lend-Lease credits.  The Japanese player won because the Allies failed to cooperate effectively.  Getting 5 middle school and high school males to cooperate is not at all easy, just like Allied cooperation in World War 2.  It makes for a great learning tool.

Playing any Axis and Allies game with more than two players makes if far more interesting than a basic two-player game.
