AirCraft Carrier in Hawaiin Waters, Why?



  • Ok, this has always bothered me, but why do they have the carrier in Hawaiin waters? reality is the pacific Carrier fleet was not present when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, but the way it is now, when the Japanese do their attack on Pearl Harbor, they usually wipe out the American Carrier fleet, which does not follow history.



  • The game starts in Spring of 1942, after the attack on Pearl Harbor.  If it were the Attack on Pearl Harbor there would be at least a battleship there and, as you mentioned, no aircraft career.  History takes a hit with this board game, but if the Japanese do attack Pearl Harbor on their first turn it isn’t December 7th, 1941.

    yes but not aware of any more Japanese occursions on Hawaii after the attack on Pearl Harbor



  • the carriers operated around Hawaii though, so don’t assume the SZ goes out to the 12NM pt and stops there…considering Hawaii itself is over 1200 miles in length (island chain).  And since this is spring 42, coral sea hasn’t happened yet (yes, I do realize May is in Spring, but let’s say it’s March/April), and the carrier fleet would be on its way…but if you wan’t historical, don’t play the game because SPOILER ALERT  Allies win…if you want to be historical…

    Do you only make moves that are historically accurate during a game?
