Our gaming group is currently running a Solomons campaign that I'm officiating. We all decided on modifying the original OBs to reflect units that were present, but were left off the original game OB, probably for good reasons of unit management and simplicity. As referee, I gave the IJN players the option of recalling the Kitakami and Oi, for example, before they were converted into transports. Likewise, the Allied OB includes units such as Leander, PT squadrons starting in October 1942, and the sole Free French ship in the Pacific, Le Triomphant. As each month completes, I send a revised OB to each side, reflecting losses, reinforcements, transfers, an damaged units, as well as when those units may return. I'll post our OB as an attachment, if anyone finds it curious or interesting. It's been a hugely fun campaign to run so far.

I also modified the OOB the last time I ran TSC (our sixth go round). I offered Desron 2 to the Allies, but if they took it the Japanese got the Oi and Kitakami. I like the expanded OOB as it offers something in additional interest in replaying TSC. I'm afraid TSC has just about worn out its welcome with our group after we have played it six times with the Allies winning all six efforts.
