Hi,

I'm currently looking at a ww2 pacific theatre wargame focusing on carriers. I'm zooming in on 3 games: Flat Top, C.V. and "Scratch One Flat Top!". I've read all the comments, but I kinda miss a comparison between two. Anyone with experience with any of these two willing to tell me which one they like better (over te other), and why?

Thanks,
Matthijs

Any input about complexity, # pages in the rulebook, bookkeeping(-problems), realism/ historicity, experienced game time, online vialbility (Cyberboard, VASSAL) on any one of these 3 is also greatly appreciated! Anything to make up my mind.

Flat Top and CV are pretty similar (and also super complex). Scratch one CV is a 3W game, and as such is unlikely to be very well designed.

If you can get your hands on the AH Smithsonian Midway or Guadalcanal, or one of the Avalanche Press games on Carrier Warfare (SOPAC, Midway, etc.) they might fill a bill.

Scratch One Flatop is very well designed, and even has a partner called Incredible Victory.

There is good reason to be wary of many 3W wargames, but SOFT is not one of them.

A thoroughly enjoyable wargame.

Flat Top is very much more detailed and and excellent too.

I really can't decide which one I prefer most.
