On the stage of the Pacific battle, there was a concrete confrontation that marked a milestone in history, that of the American aircraft carrier USS Yorktown against the Japanese aircraft carrier IJN Shōhō. It is said that it was the first naval battle where the ships never saw each other, and they faced each other launching airplanes to locate their enemy and bomb them.

In the 1-4 player co-operative game 1942 USS Yorktown, you take the role of American pilots who take off from the USS Yorktown to try to locate and sink the Shōhō while you fight against the planes it throws at you. Time will be your main enemy since the whole game will be against the clock and there will be no time to prepare great strategies or for the dreaded "leader effect".

    Excellent "petit" jeu de dé avec une thématique bien rendue. Joué plusieurs fois en solo, il tourne super bien ! Difficulté modulable avec les "extensions" intégrées. Aucun texte sur les cartes / plateau, donc parfaitement jouable avec des anglophobes, surtout avec la traduction des règles sur BGG ;)
