Combat Patrol South Pacific Action Decks

with deckbox

This is a Suppoment to Combat PatrolTM: WWII.  You need EITHER Set A, Set B, or the Starter Set to play this game.

Combat PatrolTM is an exciting set of skirmish rules that allows players to focus on the game instead of the rules.  The South Pacific supplement includes optional rules that enable players to better represent the unique conditions found in the South Pacific during WWII.  These cards are mostly common with the cards in the other sets.  The differences are in the bottom section of the cards for morale checks.  These cards better represent the unique morale characteristics of Japanese forces in the jungles of the South Pacific.

Combat PatrolTM  is a unique card-based minatures game.  The unique Double Random ActivationTM mechanism provides a leap-ahead method for activating units that provides the friction and drama of card-based systems with none of the drawbacks.  

More importantly, Combat PatrolTM uses a card-based combat resolution mechanism that is exciting and simple while eliminating unsightly chart cards cluttering your beautiful gaming table.

To play Combat Patrol you need EITHER set A or set B of the cards as well as the freely downloadable PDF of the basic rules. The advanced rules and rules for vehicles are a separately purchased download.  

The PDF download is NOT a set of cards.  

The PDF is the full rules as a PDF download-and-print booklet of the supplemental rules for Combat PatrolTM: World War II.

I bought this deck, both sets, and I highly recommend them. There are differences, regards morale and hand to hand combat, inherent in the cards. The Rule set variant is well done. See my review of Combat Patrol Set A on this site. Journey over to Buck Surdus site for more detailed information.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
