Codename: Operation Watchtower

We welcome back the Historical Miniature Gaming Society-Midwest for a fun and educational re-creation of the campaign of Guadalcanal. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of this pivotal campaign, we’ll explore the strategy and tactics used at Guadalcanal and why it was so important to the War in the Pacific. Then, visitors have the opportunity to change history by playing through the campaign’s major battles using wargaming board games.
