Is there a community anywhere for this title?
I've always wanted to play, and own an unpuched copy. Should I sell it?

I don't believe there are many players but I could be wrong. You might want to sell it. I used to have a copy but i sold it. I have the Smithsonian edition of Guadalcanal which is simple to play. Do what you think is best for you!

There's no community; took GMT almost two decades to sell all their copies.

The game is missing about 1/3 the units the Japanese historically tried to land. Why have an integrated land/air system when the historical results are already baked into reinforcement schedule? And the system is very detailed and laborious for the campaign. Suggest to get the 3W Guadalcanal game instead.
