@Darenm said in Pacific charts:
After looking at your first picture of the complete inventory, I am also missing all of the red pieces except for infantry. I will have to shelve this copy and keep looking. Thanks again for your help.
Well, there are actually two versions of this game. In the first version, the Japanese pieces are red. They have red ships, red planes, red arty and tanks, and red infantry. The Chinese pieces (which are all infantry) are brown. In the second version, the Japanese pieces are orange (officially, burnt orange). They have orange ships, orange planes, orange arty and tanks, and orange infantry. The Chinese pieces (which are all infantry) are red.
So, having only infantry in red does not necessarily mean that your copy is missing pieces. Allow me to show you some pieces in orange:
The source of the second picture (http://axisallies.com/versions/pacific/) also has some commentary on this game and a better picture of the National Production / Japanese Victory Point tracker:
Long story short, if you have red infantry AND a bunch of tan pieces (for the Brits), a bunch of green pieces (for the Americans), and bunch of orange pieces (for the Japanese), you may not be short of the pieces you need in order to play this game.
How do you tell which copy of A&A: Pacific has the red Japanese / brown Chinese and which copy had the orange Japanese / red Chinese? Best way I’ve heard is that the front of the game box says tells how many pieces are in the box. Some boxes say there are 345 game pieces, some boxes say there are 335 game pieces. There should be 335, the 345 was a typo. It’s my understanding that the 345 boxes originally came with the red Japanese / brown Chinese and the 335 boxes originally came with the orange Japanese / red Chinese. Some pictures for reference:
I hope that clears things up for you.
