Pacific War - check
Naval focus - check
Strategic/Operational level - check
CDG - check
airjudden's fav game - must therefore be great

Chances of finding someone to play something this complicated and long - zero

There was one tv in my school, and it came out for the first Shuttle launch and BBC news Falklands War updates. Being from a coastal town there was a certain resonance with the navy locally, and this was the first conflict i remember vividly, so the attraction of this game (which is clearly too long, too complicated and too expensive for my tastes) makes some sense...

Shorter simpler and still in print (and therefore affordable) i should want to play this more than 'Discord...', but its balence is towards the land war rather than the air/naval which is where my interest lies...

The grandaddy of epic space games, i might be able to cope with the complexity and length, but the chances of finding enough interested people to play with is low. Its a sad state of affairs.

I love Memoir so need to get this, maybe I'll get my son to watch Waterloo (which oddly feels less dated than Sharpe) for inspiration....

I like Dune (although not perfect - the book's too long and the 84 film too wacky for my tastes), but all the reasons i want (and probably wont) get to play TI4 apply here.

Never played it, but an old affinity to RuneQuest means I think Id like a quick fun card game based in the universe....
