I just received more details and a couple of images from Avalon Hill for the upcoming Axis & Allies Guadalcanal game. One of the images is the complete box design and the other shows a game in progress. This new game will include a new cruiser unit, airstrip construction, supplies, and will involve land, sea, and air battles. Like Battle of the Bulge, it appears that casualties will be chosen randomly but the mechanism in the picture looks differnt than Bulge. Read the rest of the article for more details.
