Billy Riley, 15 September 2022 ~ #UnboxingDay
I have several of these games. I’ve played none of them but they are from the designer of RAF Battle of Britain which is a fantastic solo wargame.
Box Art ~ US Marines landing at Tarawa

Some details on the back for anyone who may be interested
Cards ~ As a card driven system, you might expect some cards. They’re normal quality card and size. There are 55 in total.
Manual ~ There’s a nice paper 32 page manual with the game
Baggies ~ Some spare baggies for my collection
Player Aid Cards ~ These are matte, heavy paper (as opposed to card).
The Battle of Tarawa Booklet ~ This is a nice addition. It has information on the fight including a nice map of the Pacific campaign
Counters ~ There are two counter sheets with the game containing 352 counters
The map looks horrendously busy – but I’ve seen playthroughs of the game and everything has it’s place and seems to manage to not confuse the player – though at first glance, that seems hard to believe.
It’s a mounted map and does look very nice
