International Game Series game from Multi-Man Publishing.

Simulating the Pacific Front of World War II has long been one of the great wargame design challenges. The same distance that planes could cover in a few hours required days for ships and weeks for foot soldiers. Hostile jungles and great oceans combined to create logistics and transport of paramount historical concerns. These and other design puzzles are solvable by only the most skilled designers.

Renowned Japanese wargame create Tetsuya Nakamura has successfully met these challenges and Multi-Man Publishing is to offer the elegant result - Fire in the Sky. Fire in the Sky has, until recently, only been available in Japanese.

With only a single map and 180 counters, Fire in the Sky packs years of prior Pacific design attempts and experience into an effort that beautifully distills the essence of the conflict and serves as further proof that great things do indeed come in small packages. Fire in the Sky gives players the same problems and perspectives faced by the historical combatants, yet does so in a game that can be played in 5 hours or less. The game is ingeniously balanced and so gives not only a look into the minds of the actual commanders, but also a fun, competitive and tense gaming experience.

The game comes with glorious 1-inch counters, a clever map that integrates hexes and areas, and rules that cover all of the essential aspects of the Great Pacific War. Oil convoys and troop transports are as critical to victory as the massive Carrier fleets that steam over the vast Pacific. Tetsuya Nakamura’s intelligent and ingenious design also gives Western players a fascinating glimpse into the Japanese perspective on the war.
