Jon Southard, designer of both Tokyo Express and Carrier (among other things), is making a new game called Carrier Battle: Philippine Sea.

Guess who is publishing it?  ;)

I need to switch my paychecks from going directly to GMT to going directly to Compass Game.  8)

None! I was just watching their town hall video. They do one every Thursday night and sometimes give away a free game, so...

I figured you guys would find these interesting.

I was watching it also BC.  With C:PS and Crusader, that makes 18 pre orders  in the last 3 weeks.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

Pretty crazy how much they're putting out, and the names they have behind these games. Good stuff.

They've come a long way since that original subs in the Pacific game, Silent War...

Even Silent War is getting another re-treatment; they're going to box the IJN expansion in with it.

That's 18 pre-orders they have up now. I'm very tempted by three of them, because hey, you don't have to pay for it now...

I only have two games up on preorder, American Tank Ace and Devil Boats. I pay up front for my preorders. I find that it's a good way to keep from going overboard and getting a bunch of unexpected ( as in 'I forgot all about that!' ) hits to my finances.

I seem to remember playing this, or something similar, a very long time ago.

That's probably the best way to do it. I put myself down for two, but did 'pay later' and will leave it at that despite at least 2-3 others calling my name. I signed up for The Russian Campaign and Carrier Battle: Philippine Sea.

Pre-ordered! This is a must have for me. I mean, it's solo, it's Pacific, it's the Tokyo Express/Carrier dude...  :D

Exactly!

Compass gives you an option to pay in advance, as Stags said. Or, you can sign up but pay for it later.

It's weird to feel so out of touch even in your own nerd niche.

Yet another solo-only game?

Hard pass.

Yet, this must be a strong part of the market.
