Thanks for the ideas. I’m going to push him to just drop it, but if not the price increase at least is a good idea.

How to deal with 2-hit carrier house rule
I occasionally get to play 1942 second edition at my buddy’s house with a few others. Generally nobody plays specific nations, just 2 vs 2 with each team fully consulting each other about general strategies for their side. None of us are total beginners, but we’ve probably each only played this version of A&A less than 15 times.
Anyway. A house rule over there that I can’t stand is that aircraft carriers get 2 hits just like battleships. The game owner insists carriers are too weak otherwise. But whenever we play games, Japan’s Navy becomes pretty unstoppable and the pacific just becomes a navy arms race with nobody ever attacking the others navy since carriers and fighters are both at an advantage defending.
Anyone else ever been forced to play with this rule? Any general advice on how to work with this rule as either side? Or even better, how can I convince him to abolish this house rule haha? To me, it definitely makes naval combat less interesting and less likely to occur at all.
