I was just wondering why it seems that A&AP is not as popular on this forum as A&A World or Europe? I have been rolling World since the early eighties and been fighting back and forth over Europe and the Pacific since their game board releases’ and I just gotta’ ask why there is not more and more current posts about Pacific on this forum?
My game group enjoys World to the max. but it seems that it always boils down to a race to Russia and/or Germany. Europe is pretty much the same thing, a race to Moscow before the Brits. and Americans can throw there combimed weight against the Fatherland. We do mix it up with different tatics and such but it still seems like it comes down to the same rat race.
Pacific is a great game if you like big engagements with high dollar units. There is nothing like a Battlewagon vs. battlewagon slugfest! Also the Japanese player has alot of verying options to try and fight out, it’s never quite the same game twice!
Don’t get me wrong, I/we do enjoy World, it is a little basic though, and Europe is fine if you like refighting big tank battles like Kursk again and again, but nothing beats huge high dollar fleets chasing each other around the wide expanses the the deep blue.
Just wondering…, thanks for your time…,
