57 2/19/2018 6:01:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Pacifications done, with thanks to my G.I. Joe buddy.
Also removed a bunch of ARVN cubes per the Failed Coup.
VC is next for Agitation.
56 2/19/2018 11:08:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message It’s still ARVNs turn to pacify I believe.
55 2/18/2018 5:03:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Due to his espectacular strategic deployment during this first stage of the war, the US commander has earned a promotion to watch very, very, very carefully some iceberg in the Bering Sea.

The new officer, after pondering the situation, has commanded troops to pacify Binh Dinh, thus opening the path to the future control of South Vietnam.

So, who is now the pothead?

During the Coup! face, US pacifies KH-VB.
ARVN is up for pacifying up to 3 additional spaces.
54 2/18/2018 3:36:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message or Bin Dinh!
53 2/18/2018 3:36:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA passed - over to the US to (hopefully) pacify Kien Gian!
52 2/18/2018 3:32:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message I could not agree more! We should all play to win (and have fun while doing so!). I must admit that I had overlooked the possible US pacification. NVA will then be happy to pass and let the US deal with the crisis!
51 2/18/2018 3:27:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message I have played competitely in different games for 25 years. I have no trouble with that NVA passes so US can train + pacify which brings me down below my victory conditions. I play to win and expect everyone else to do the same.
50 2/18/2018 3:13:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Well, unless I am missing something, there is not much NVA can do to stop a VC victory. I must have played 20+ games of FiTL and never saw such an early VC win before. Well done Bjorn! I am sorry the vicious opposition I told you about never really materialized!
49 2/17/2018 7:31:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message I went for a 1st faction op only but forgot to move my pawn. Sorry.
48 2/17/2018 7:27:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message NVA is up for a Lim op
47 2/17/2018 6:46:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Assault and Raid.
VC is up next, with Coup in sight.
We got trouble.
46 2/17/2018 4:45:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Ha! No matter what you do for the rest of the game you will not be able to match the splendorous first turns of the US army.

ARVN is up, by the way.
45 2/17/2018 4:14:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message Well, I signed up to this game promised to meet the most vicious players known to man so I’m happy as long as I don’t make a fool of myself...
44 2/17/2018 3:50:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message Quite refreshing to see that my esteemed ally, the VC, is still at victory!
43 2/17/2018 3:38:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC retreats quietly into the jungle for the moment i e VC passes.

ARVN is up.
42 2/17/2018 2:58:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message Good to see that the US command stopped smoking dope and started the real fight. NVA marched to support its brother in arms, the VC. Over to the VC.
41 2/17/2018 1:14:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US command awakens from its lethargy and send troops to sweep around South Vietnam.
Air strike is called to clear Binh-Dinh of Charlies.
(I forgot to degrade the Trail, please correct it).

NVA is up for Medevac.
40 2/17/2018 10:43:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message LimOp Assault, even though all the cool kids are passing these days. US back up.
39 2/17/2018 10:42:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Have US forces considered fighting or are they too busy enjoying the local beer and surfing spots?

Let's see what the ARVN does!
38 2/17/2018 10:29:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US forces keep biding their time (which may never arrive).

ARVN is up for Lim Op.
37 2/17/2018 9:47:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message VC bides their time during Sihanouk and then launches a terror campaign. US can respond with a Lim op.
36 2/17/2018 8:43:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US officers are bewildered and cannot decide the best course of action.
So, US troops stay put while high command discusses the new strategy for the following months.

VC is up for Sihanouk.
35 2/17/2018 7:16:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Indeed, this is part of a cunning deception plan. US could be up. Or not.
34 2/17/2018 7:07:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message NVA failed to tell us who is next. Classic commie confusion tactics.
33 2/17/2018 6:41:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA rallied and infiltrated. NVA is also quite pleased by the significant progress of the VC in the south. It looks like south vietnamese people will soon be free from their capitalist oppressors!

NVA is next.

16 2/12/2018 11:19:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message It appears this news cast was wrong since I can’t use the card in that province. New move coming up.
15 2/12/2018 11:12:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message News reporter: In Vietnam Viet-Cong has overrun a US-base outside Kontum. Inofficial reports says that this has strenghten the US opposition in the Pleiku-Darlac-region. How and where US will respond to these events is unknow but US military says that ”All options are on the table”.

In other news...
14 2/12/2018 6:16:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message Ah, thanks. Train (+ Pacify) and Govern instead.
Viet Cong are next.
13 2/12/2018 5:43:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message I am afraid that Train and Raid are not compatible - Raid only goes with Patrol, Sweep or Assault!

This is Major David.
Enemy sappers have been spotted setting up booby traps, so watch your step and no fooling around.
OVER!

NVA is up for 301st Supply Bn.

PS: Björn, the VASSAL module automatically manages the victory points as control and support/opposition changes.
So, we should not mess with them manually.
We should just take care of resources.
Likewise, if you click "End Faction Play" all movement trails and white/black pawns will be automatically deleted.
"End Card Play" will automatically adjust eligibility and discard the current event.
"Draw Card", well, draws a new card.

6 2/10/2018 7:56:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message I realized I forgot to decrease my scoring by six points after my Taxing. If US can do that it would be great so I don´t have to make another log-file. Thanks.
