Carrier: The Southwest Pacific Campaign - 1942-1943
Carrier: The Southwest Pacific Campaign - 1942-1943 is a solitaire Board game of both historical and hypothetical carrier battles in the Southwest Pacific Theater
during the hotly-contested naval campaigns of 1942 and 1943.
 As the U.S. commander, you maneuver your task forces and conduct air searches in a tension-packed contest to find the Japanese carriers before they locate and attack yours.
Simple game mechanics control Japanese movement and determine the timing and strengths of their attacks.
You will not know that a Japanese air strike is headed your way until it actually appears in the skies above your task force.
Once the enemy has been located, you face the very same, real-life, tactical dilemmas as your historical counterparts.
... do you attack immediately and risk heavy Aircraft losses due to Fuel exhaustion, or do you close the range with the ever present danger of the Japanese Planes striking
while your Decks are crowed with Armed and Fueled Aircraft.
... was your Pilots report accurate, or has he mistaken a Cruiser and a few Tin Cans for a Japanese Carrier Force ? Should you wait for more Information ?
... should the balance of your Fighters escort your Strike Force or should they be kept to defend your Ships in case of a Japanese Strike.
Carrier can be played an unlimited number of times,since all the Japanese actions are determined by Charts and Dice Rolls,and the Game System mimics
Historical Japanese Tactics based upon randomly determined objectives.
