How does this one play? I see already how beautiful the components are, but curious how is gameplay?

Thanks

Play DVG's Field Commander Nimitz!

It plays similar to the other FC games in DVG's stable - battle plans, movement orders for enemy forces based on area, etc. Its a grand scale game which covers the entirety of the Pacific campaign for the US.

If you enjoyed the mechanic in Rommel, Napoleon, and Alexander then you'll enjoy Nimitz. As usual in most wargames for me, it comes down to theme. I have always enjoyed Pacific War games and what Nimitz allows you to do is play a game that covers this theater of war without it being a 'Monster' game taking days/weeks of gameplay. It's relative easy to pick up and play right away.
