FOC AL CEL



Desprès de tres sessions matinals, la partida de Fire in the sky que estem a punt d'acabar, es mereix una petita ressenya.


Primer de tot, agrair a en Martí, que fa uns dies, ens va ensenyar els mecanismes del joc d'una manera entenedora. Realment és un gust poder passar de seguida a l'acció sense haver de barallar-se amb el reglament. (Així i tot, sempre surten dubtes, és inevitable)

En Ruben porta els aliats, és a dir, americans a dojo, britànics i algun holandès.
En Tomàs (un servidor) porta els japonesos.

El joc simula la Segona Guerra Mundial a l'oceà Pacífic i part de l'Indic. És aquell teatre de la guerra que va començar amb l'atac a traició dels japonesos sobre la base americana de Pearl Harbour, i que va acabar amb l'atac a traició dels americans, amb bombes atómiques, sobre Hirosima i Nagasaki. Entre mig d'aquests dos esdeveniments i varen haver multiples batalles, sobretot aeronavals.


Varem decidir de començar amb la campanya curta. En aquest escenari es salta el primer torn, i el japonès ja comença havent atacat Pearl Harbour i Singapur. S'estalvia unes tirades de daus, que si surten dolentes, el perjudicaran durant tota la partida.



Els primers torns comencen amb els japonesos assegurant les fonts de petroli d'Indonesia: a resultes d'això, Holanda desapareix d'aquesta part del món. S'ha de dir que el petroli és vital pel Imperi del Sol Naixent, sense petroli la flota no pot sortit del port. En canvi, l'americà va sobrat. En tè tant que no li cal ni comptar el que gasta.

Tambè, en els torns inicials, es veu com l'orgullòs Imperi Britànic, ferit en l'amor propi per haver perdut Singapur, intenta reconquerir-lo enviant tropes des de l'india. El japonès ho intentarà evitar i es farà un tap a Bangkok que durarà tota la partida.


Però la veritable acció es veurà al sud. L'agresiva estratègia japonesa consisteix en tallar la linea de sumistres entre Australia i Estats Units. Si ho aconsegueix, obtindrà de segur la victòria automàtica. No ho tè fàcil, ha de capturar Nova Guinea i/o Guadalcanal que són la porta cap a Austràlia. Desprès d'aplegar una gran flota a la base de Truk, es llança contra Guadalcanal. Els millors portaavions, cuirasats (entre ells el Yamato, imponent i enorme, la nau insigne, bebedor insaciable de petroli), submarins, i avions, topen contra una aferrissada defensa de l'illa. Un sol impacte salva als americans de l'aniquilació. Resisteixen i es reforcen, la batalla de Guadalcanal durarà uns torns més, però l'illa s'ha salvat... per molt poc.



Guadalcanal no ha pogut ser, i el japonès ho proba amb Port Moresby, l'última base americana de Nova Guinea. Des de d'aquí, en un dia clar, es pot veure la costa d'Austràlia. Es torna a aplegar la flota a Truk, és més gran que la que va atacar Guadalcanal. El japonès a après dels errors i envia a la batalla tot el que pot. Es gasta fins l'últim bidò de petroli. El Yamato tampoc hi falta. Desprès de fer rodolar molts daus, un sol impacte salva a l'americà de la eliminació. La frustració es evident en l'alt comandament japonès. En el torn següent es torna a probar de nou l'assalt a Port Moresby, però l'americà no ha perdut el temps i la batalla és molt més igualada. Port Moresby està salvat. Aquí comença la davallada nipona.


Perquè mentres el japonès estava capficat en arribar a Australia, l’americà no ha estat ociòs. Més i més recursos s’han destinat a la guerra: nous vaixells (entre ells l’Iowa un cuirassat que far dubtar al Yamato de la seva predominància), més transports, més submarins; la maquinaria de guerra americana treu fum. I els resultats no es fan esperar, cauen succesivament les bases japoneses de Attu, Paramushiro, Rabaul, Gilberts, Marshalls, Lae, i… Truk. El camp base del japò al Pacífic sud cau quasi sense resistència a les mans dels americans. Mai en tot el que es porta de guerra s’ha vist tanta potència de foc concentrada en un sol hexàgon. Tants avions hi havien al cel que els soldats japonesos han hagut de lluitar a l'ombra

Sembla que ja nomès el final de la partida podrà parar els americans venjatius. Manquen sis torns. Podrà el japonès resistir el desastre? Podrà aguantar tant sols les filipines? Els tres punts de victoria que confereixen aquestes illes serien decisius per a la victòria. Tindrà prou temps l’americà per portar els seus vaixells invencibles des de Hawai fins a la zona de lluita que s’allunya cada cop més de les seves bases?



Qui perdrà la guerra?

Sembla que la partida és ben emocionant. FITS és un joc que trobo que equilibra bé l'estratègia i la simulació a gran escala amb la simplicitat.

Per cert, quins marcadors feu servir per indicar la possessió de les bases?

Tomàs ha dit...

Els marcadors són fitxes del World in Flames.

Per cert, Martí, el Fire in The Sky està bè, però no saps d'algun altre joc que tracti el mateix tema (la segona guerra mundial al pacífic) però que tingui una mica més de detall? M'interessaria, sobretot, que es poguessin triar les unitats que es produissin.

Gràcies.

Martí Cabré ha dit...

Doncs ara mateix només em ve al cap l'extensió del Third Reich al Pacífic, que crec que es deia Empire of the Sun, si no m'erro.

És que no tinc gaires jocs a nivell de Gran Estratègia perquè en el seu moment em recordaven massa els NAC de la meva adolescència... I d'aquests n'havia provat un sobre el Pacífic, ves a saber com es deia.

Albert Carreras ha dit...

L'Asia Engulfed de GMT cobreix el mateix tema. No hi he jugat però fent-hi una ullada a les normes cada jugador aconsegueix punts de producció per capturar certs recursos (depenent de la nacionalitat), i llavors pots triar quines units es produeixen.

Tomàs ha dit...

Veig que el WORLD IN FLAMES tè la campanya del Pacífic.

En Ruben el tè, potser serà el joc elegit?

rockmaden ha dit...

me apunto aquets joc a la meva llista algu me l'ensenyara?

Es pot jugar per vassal?

rockmaden ha dit...

De qui es el joc?

Tomàs ha dit...

El Fire in the Sky és meu Guillem. I ja saps: quan vulguis i a on vulguis.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

So I did it -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-ValveDock-Carbon-Edition-2.html]Fatman iTube Carbon Edition[/url] and I've got to say I am pleasantly surprised. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months back and just couldn't get that music out of my head because it really truly surprised me. I searched online everywhere I could think of for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I called them first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was perfect. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they ship outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

I am crazy happy about it...
