About this project
HOLDFAST: ATLANTIC and PACIFIC are two separate games that gamers will enjoy playing with friends and family. The games pay homage to two classic games from the 1970’s and 80’s. Avalon Hill’s WAR AT SEA and VICTORY IN THE PACIFIC. The HOLDFAST games add elements such as the fog of war at sea using blocks that allow hidden deployment and movement until the moment of engagement. Using the HOLDFAST combat system that allows battles to be fought quickly. Is the enemy fleet a grouping of battle ships and carriers, a convoy group, or a U-boat group out on a hunting trip. Both games play in 2 to 3 hours and will be educational for newer gamers with a tense to the last turn feel for experienced gamers. We offer a number of packages for gamers to choose from.
HoldFast Atlantic recreates the ship battles contesting control of the Atlantic Ocean during World War II. The navies of Britain and the United States are challenged to keep sea lanes open for its convoys. German U-Boats prowl these waters and German and Italian battleships and cruisers threaten the sea supply lines of the Allies. The great Axis warships Bismarck, Tirpitz and others contest Britain's best while the United States fleet adds its might to the fight as the war progresses. As the Axis player can you cut the sea lanes that supply Great Britain and Russia to win the war? Or as the Allied player, can you overcome the U-Boat menace and Axis naval and air forces to control the Atlantic.
HoldFast Pacific has the empire of Japan attempt to control the vast Pacific Ocean. After devastating the United States fleet at Pearl Harbor, the Japanese naval, air and land forces push their conquest across the Pacific. Their only obstacles are weakened Allied forces and time as the Allies recover. Can you as the Japanese player secure a Pacific empire that protects your homeland from your enemies? And as the Allied player can you rebuild your armed forces and mount a counter attack that prevents the Japanese expansion and bring the war to their homeland?

Risks and challenges
As a small game company in business for 10 years we know the biggest challenge is meeting deadlines. So many things happen during the printing of a game that can slow up production that setting too tight a deadline can frustrate customers and reduce sales.
After production shipping and delivery become the next challenge to us. But again, with 11 years of successful projects behind us we have met and will meet the expectations of all of these projects.
As noted by a member on BoardGameGeek, "Worthington has done several KS campaigns and delivered on every one."Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
