Carrier (game)

Carrier (game)

"Carrier" is a solitaire game from Victory Games depicting the fighting in the Solomon Islands during World War II between Allied and Japanese forces. The game was designed by Jon Southard and uses a solitaire system similar to his earlier game "Tokyo Express". The player is in command of the Allied Task Force, mostly American, but occasionally having British Commonwealth elements, fighting to defeat the Japanese Navy. The game also has a reference to the 1980 movie "The Final Countdown", where the USS|Nimitz|CVN-68 and its air group can fight as a less serious note.
