My buddies and I have been playing it for about 2 months now; maybe a bit longer. 1942 isn't my favorite version of the board game; that would be Anniversary Edition. We're supporting it in hopes of getting Anniversary or 1940 Global Second Ed.
It's good enough. Sometimes the dice seem wonky, but I'm sure it's really random. It IS frustrating when you have overwhelming odds against the defender and his AA will take out a couple of your planes and then your army misses completely for the first two rounds.
There were a lot of problems in the beginning with getting your land units on transports, but they've made some great improvements in that area.
If you like the board games and you have someone to play with or you don't mind playing against strangers on their portal, then $10 is a great investment. If you're thinking about playing solo, then I have some other recommendations for you as the AI is trash.
