Battle over the Pacific

Watermarked PDF

Battle over the Pacific: Japan vs United States, 1941-1942 is a complete, tactical level two-player (with solitaire option) strategy card game in the Battle over Britain game series, taking the system to the Pacific theater. 

The game includes a 16-page illustrated, digest-sized rule booklet, color game tables and Dogfight Display, and set of 35 warplane counters including planes such as the Wildcat, Kittyhawk, Buffalo, Dauntless, Devastator (American); Zero, Oscar, Claude, Nate, Val, Kate (Japanese).  Components will have to be printed and searated prior to play.  Fully compatible with any game in the series.  Aircraft are individually rated for speed, agility, firepower, performance, damage.  Besides rules and advanced rules, individual scenarios and Campaign Game are provided.  The game system stresses playability (all gamers need to provide is a standard deck of cards and a 6-sided die) and historicity. 

Games play quickly, and with small footprint, can be played almost anywhere.  Originally published in 2014, Battle over the Pacific is now available in PDF format.   Designed by Gary Graber.  Published by Minden Games.

Could anyone explain what are the main differences between 1st and 2nd edition of this system?
Do Minden Games intend to publish second edition of this title?
I just don't want to buy this as a "Deal of the Day" and after a week or two find out that there is a better version that I have to buy again.

Original electronic
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.
