Box art concept for Guadalcanal



  • I dont think its on purpose, IL.

    Remember the game is made in China, and there may be language issues. Like “count twelve pieces” in english are translated to " pick five pieces" in chinese.

    Like in Norway we have this joke about an Italian going vacation in US
    “I go to restaurant, I order to piss of pizza, I only got one, I say to waitress - I wanna to piss. She say - Go to toilett. I say - No you no understand, I wanna to piss on table. She say - You better not piss on table you sonna ma btch. So I eat the one piss of pizza, but I only got knife and spoon, no fock. So I tell the waitress, I wanna fock. -Everybody wanna fock, she say. I say - You no understand, I wanna fock on the table. She say - You better not fock on the table, you sonna ma btch. So I go to hotel-room, but there are no sh it in the bed. So I call waitress and say I wanna sh it. She say - Go to toilet. No, I say, you no understand, I wanna sh it in bed. She say, - You better not sh it in bed, you sonna ma btch. So I go home to Italia. In airfield man say -Peace to you. I say - Piss to you, too, sonna ma btch, and wave goodbye”

    lol, funny joke  😄

    Not unless its another Funagain worldwide promotional release. They are the only official promoter of this game and Avalon hill has apparently no concerns about giving them information but not making this known about it on behalf of its own customers.

    Well maybe they think they can count on us to spread the word?  :roll:

    I guess the big roll out isn’t until GenCon. Still you’d think they would throw us a bone. But I guess we did get one with what classes the cruisers will be from Larry.  😐



  • I still hope this game will come with nation specific cruisers for Germany, Britain and USSR too, and trucks for Britain, USSR and Japan, so I can use this new pieces in my Revised game. That would be cool, odd and surrealistic yes, but still very cool.

    Yeah that would be nice but you know it won’t happen

    The regular Avalon Hill PR person is out on sabbatical. I tried to contact the replacement but no luck so far.

    I tried to contact the replacement but no luck so far.

    I’m sure he’s working at funagain full time.
