The two-player, strategic-level game of the Pacific War Fire in the Sky is now shipping to distributors from our warehouse in US, and will start to hit the shelves from March 17th. Published by PHALANX, Fire in the Sky - The Great Pacific War 1941 - 1945 is distributed by Ares Games in North America, and covers the entire conflict between the Empire of Japan and the Western Allies, from the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor to the days when American atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Fire in the Sky: the Great Pacific War, 1941-1945.

Designed by the renowned Japanese wargame designer Tetsuya Nakamura, Fire in the Sky is a game where players will attempt to conduct successful attacks on their opponent’s units, break loose from the sea siege or simply outsmart their enemy so craftily that his willingness to carry on would be crushed. They shall not forget about the logistics – spend their transportation points wisely and supply their units with oil or they end up as unarmed stationary ducks, an easy prey for enemy diving bombers or destroyers.

Choosing Japanese side of the conflict, the player may gather as many points as possible in the first couple of turns and prevent their Allied opponents from retaking them late in the game. Positive victory points at the end of the game for the Land of the Rising Sun means it wins. Every other result makes Allied forces a winner.
