From Tiny Battle:
Rifles in the Pacific (RITP) is the second of Gottardo Zancani’s solitaire RIFLES series (Rifles in the Ardennes). Rifles in the Pacific recreates the sweaty-palms action that characterized the Pacific Theater in World War II in a unique single-player format. We have replaced the hex-maps typical of World War II games with three beautiful, yet abstracted maps, representing the Pacific Theater and allowing for endless battlefield customization.
A simple solitaire system recreates small firefights (five to ten units per side) over a bevy of scenarios, including beach assaults, riverbank defense, random jungle patrols, raids on AA Gun emplacements and radio stations, and a campaign linking the missions together. Blind chit draws and die rolls, combined with artfully crafted charts create an impressive “artificial intelligence,” imbuing the game with true fog of war.
A fast paced and exciting solitaire World War II game, Rifles in the Pacific offers electrifying tactical challenges in a tiny package.
Rifles in the Pacific includes:
- A full sheet of beautiful, 1″-square die-cut counters
- 3 Abstracted maps representing jungles, beaches… you know, typical Pacific Theater terrain
- Two Army Sheets
- Eight Action-Packed Missions and a campaign that uses them
- One Full-Color Rulebook
- One Mission-Ready Ziploc Bag
