New to the boards, new to the game. I got 1942 two weeks ago because Risk night got too predictable. My oldest son loves to stack battleships in the Pacific with the US. Each time he builds one I feel like I have to build one for Japan to defend Tokyo. End result is a battle with upwards of 4 battleships on each side plus sea fodder. It never fails that one side loses all ships while the other side only loses fodder. If the US wins this sea battle, then Japan never has a chance to defend itself from bombardment/invasion. We have talked about limiting the battleships to the number that come with the game, and have even discussed requiring two hits on one battleship before turning the second battleship sideways. Anyone else had these issues???
Also, I got a print shop to print me a 30 by 60 map on vinyl that I got from IL. The print shop didnt charge me anything (lucky me) and the board works great!
