I played both games for the first time this weekend. We used “thrashers” rules to link them. I was hella cool! My only problem with Pacific is the victory points. I like fighting with armys and navys to conquer teritory. The VP system, like the IPC victory, just doesn’t offer me any satisfaction. In combining the two we droped the VP system. Although I probably had the victory in both games individualy, it was still undesided when we quit playing(at 6:30 in the morning).
In case you are wondering, I took moscow on turn 5 and I was at the border of the Indian capital on six. I (Japs)ruled the Pacific but the US had begun to rebuild its Pacific navy,the allies dominated the Atlantic, but the I (Germans) held the Med. with a strong showing in Africa.
