A well done, themed trick taking game.

The theme is well integrated with the game play. The different cards have different strengths for air, surface or submarine (suits). Battles can be for either day or night which limits what cards are available. Also by year which again limits the cards available.

Add in a couple of twists:
Players can play play different sides in different rounds.
Some cards immediate capture other cards (are fated) or make a card stronger in a particular battle.
The battles act as victory points and as the game timer.
The lead person select one of two battles, the suit and time of day to limit what the other players can do.
The start player rotates so different players get a chance at the end of round stronger position.

Finally the VP allocation controlled by the player who put the largest card in leads to some negotiation
Looks to be best with 5 or 6 players

Excellent card game that feels quite fresh despite being based on a game that's a bit older. The biggest drawback is that when teaching the game, it seems a lot more complicated than it actually is... Rating improves with additional plays. The one game my family has asked to play during holidays.

Pacific Typhoon is the follow-up game to Atlantic Storm. It is a card game with a WWII Pacific Theme. The components are very well done, with some nice vintage photos. Some photo's could have been chosen better, like the Mutsu, but these are trifles. Each player is involved in a historical battle as either the Japanese or American player. The round leader picks the battle card, from a choice of two, the time (day or night) and then wether it is air, surface, sub-surface or combined. (think suit) Players proceed to lay out cards that fit the year of the battle, time and suit. Table talk is encouraged and players try to vie to be on the winning side, either Japanese or American and be the high point scorer for that side, so they can distribute the prizes. Play is quick and fun, as players try to persuede each other to join their side. Surprises are numerous and cause much merriment or groans of agony! PT is a light, game that can be played in an hour or two at most. Everyone I have introduced to it has loved it from 17 year old girls to the old fogies. Don't hesitate to add this one to your collecton. Atlantic Storm is great too, but will cost you a pretty penny on Ebay.

The younger sister of Atlantic Storm. I always say that the most fun I've had playing games has been playing Typhoon or Storm. The game does offer strategy to experienced players who know the cards but, it really comes down to the fact that this is a card game! At the same time anyone who gets to far behind can still have a good time picking on the leader, and in that time they might be able to come back. The negotiation element in this game is superb.

A lot of the time you won't know who the winner will be.

This game's only flaw comes from being very hard to get into. Even after half the game new players are lost and still find it hard to make good choices.

This game is good in many situations. Adding beer is always a plus.

Play with 4-6

This is the Pacific version of Atlantic Storm. The mechanics are the same and it has the same great game play. Highly recommended.

Almost as good as Atlantic Storm. Almost. Does not present quite so well. Plays nicely. A fine game.

Virtually a clone of Atlantic Storm. The theme is different but the mechanics remain the same. A great game and warrants the highest rating.

This was an impulse purchase but based on five plays in three days was well worth its money. A fast and slick little game with quite a few different and interesting mechanics. Well worth it! Playing as a team game, it was a great 2nd way to play too!
