A great game made from a great game!! This focuses on the Pacific theater of WW2. Japan's easiest route to victory is to take India, and it seems increasingly as though this might be easier than expected.....Japanese player keeps winning.

Better than its little brother Europe, but not as good as "Big Mama" A&A. Had a great time playing it. Great for beginners. Strategy needs advice in this game, so seek it.

The best of the series. But I am a Japanophile...

And I don't own games that suck. Seriously.

I'm not a big fan of the original A & A game (I guess it's because I played AH's hex & counter global WWII games--MANY of them!), but this one is, by far, the best! It's as if someone was inspired by AH's classic FLAT TOP & made FLAT TOP LITE--easier to learn & not as long to play. A great simulation of the war in the Pacific.

I got this recently and have played 3 times (3 Axis wins) and as with Europe I like the new pieces and rules; another interesting puzzle in the series to solve and as with Europe I haven't had a decent crack at yet same comments as Axis & Allies apply in terms of a tense struggle, strategy and the downsides. My favourite at the moment due to least play time with this one and also because of the vast oceans and fleets involved in this game which appeals to me.

Dynamic fun game. Played twice - Japan lost both times but it was very interesting. Japan can flirt with taking India or Sydney but the CAP rules allow delay invasion forces for turns. Japan has conceded both games by turn four.

As a Japan A&A player, how could I not love this game. Adds what the original game falls short with. As good as you can get and still be A&A.

This game is a blast , after you get past the tedious first turn (Japanese Surprise attack). Emphasizes what all other A&A games lack, SUBSTANTIAL NAVAL COMBAT.

Another nice Harris brainchild, but why don't the Japanese ever seem to lose? I've taken and administered whuppings courtesy of the Rising Sun, but never the Allies.

The absolute best AA game of the series. Every game we have played has been an intense nail-biting experience. I do not agree with some that this game is in any way "broken" in favor of the Japanese - we have seen both sides win their fair share. If there is one AA game to get, this is it.


Beyond the plays I've logged here at BGG, I estimate I've played this ~5 times prior to my logging of plays.

If you like Axis & Allies games, You like this one, it just focuses more on the navy.

This one is a toughie. I think it is on par with Axis and Allies (at least). There are so many opening strategies that it is not funny and each of them seem to work well.

I always liked the naval game in A&A the best, so this game is pretty much perfect for me, gives you plenty of room to stretch your legs in the wide open Pacific Ocean

Definitely my favourite A&A spin-off. I love the wide open board and broad strategic possibilities. I'd say it's slanted in Japan's favour, but it's still a fun game for either side. Maybe the only A&A game where I genuinely enjoy playing any position.

very complex and takes some getting used to. however! once you get used to it, a very rewarding, interesting and replayable game. Not for the casual gamer, games can take 5+ hours.
