Postcard Guadalcanal

A Note on Copyright

Postcard Guadalcanal is COPYRIGHTED -- NOT Public Domain -- and FREE under the following conditions:

Dedication - it's shorter on the postcard:

Postcard Guadalcanal is dedicated to Bob Coatney, Homer Coatney, John Burgett, Bill Heerde, and our other Allied servicemen in the Asian Pacific War and to my children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna in the hope they will never suffer another world war.

The more we learn about the Second World War, the better our chances that it will be the LAST world war.

War must be confined to history books and games.

A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
And now: Here are Postcard Guadalcanal's components, to print off and assemble so that it may be played. Players-students will also need a coin to toss or die to roll for the (50%) chance moments in the game.

More comments by myself and others about the game can be read on Talk ConSimWorld and BoardGameGeek.

If you are a friend, and/or if you would like to share info and ideas about military and naval history and game designing and cardstock model shipbuilding, and/or you have any questions about Postcard Guadalcanal. feel free to e-mail me at

Thank you for your interest in the game ....
