WWII in the Pacific

Check out the excellent session report (here) for Pacific Victory, Columbia's block game covering WWII in the Pacific.

I am hoping to get this to the table for some F2F action before too much longer. It looks like a great game that uses the blocks really well and captures the spirit of the conflict with a pretty simple rule-set.

I'm game! I'll have to download the rules and read them so I'll be ready to rumble.

OOOHHHHH AAAAHHHH! I've never played a Columbia Block game so maybe I will download rules and then watch.

Ted, before Ben asks, next Monday?

Ben sort of already asked, but not specifically, so I'm not sure about the etiquette (sp?) here. In any case, I'll bring it on Mon, and we'll see what pans out.

Anyone who's interested should check out the mini-scenario on Columbia's page. It looks like a good way to get familiar with the game while keeping the play time reasonable. By using a small # of blocks, the scenario should help avoid overwhelming new players.

Yes yes, I concede. But I'm NEXT after Ben some other day! (like there's a line of people waiting to play PV). hehe

Any other takers for a block game like Hammer of the Scots on Monday? Carlos?

Wow, thanks Rob. I had actually put myself at #2 in line after seeing the earlier post, but I'm definitely willing to take the #1 slot. I just downloaded the rules, so I'll be ready for Monday.

It's all about professionalism.

(damn it! crap! &^%$# Ted making me feel bad for cutting in line...!)

(deep sigh)

All about etiquette.
