Historians and gamers will find the game pace, play method, and varied outcomes to be fascinating. Parents, teachers, and students will recognize the great advantage of learning while playing.

This game is part of a larger Pearl Harbor Re-enactment Guide. This part of the game is based upon the high level bomber attack on Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor. Forty-eight high Level bombers, in ten arrow formations, carrying and dropped the secret "Dragon Tooth" 800kg armor piercing bomb against the inboard battleship on Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor. Fouled by smoke and sun glare, they managed to make a dismal six hits on American battleships. Although, only six big armor piercing bombs hit American battleships, one No.80 AP bomb struck the USS Arizona's forecastle deck, penetrating 5.6" of steel armor plating over the main battery powder magazine causing a catastrophic explosion. The game can be adapted easily for solo or team play. Can you do better?
