Victory in the Pacific

For my son Will's birthday, we celebrated by playing (or trying to play) a favourite from long ago, Avalon Hill's "Victory in the Pacific", a true classic.

Although Will, Cate, John and I played this classic endlessly when they were children (trying for 6's, 6's, 6's) we made the classic mistake, forgetting that the US fleet can sustain double damage in the Pearl Harbour raid. That's why Will looked so unhappy and I, erroneously, looked quite pleased.

This is just one of those games that you never sell, never replace.
