Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
237 4/6/2018 8:14:00 AM Master ID = 22998 Game Deleted
236 3/25/2018 1:37:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Change Player 1 player Player 1 player changed from Randy Monk to Fred
235 3/21/2018 9:19:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Fred can delete this game.
234 3/21/2018 11:24:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message A new ACTS game, I mean.
233 3/21/2018 11:23:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message As I am easily confused, I will start a new game to put us in the correct faction slots.
232 3/21/2018 2:58:00 AM Turn 1 US Message ARVN passes.
On to NVA for Lim Op.

(Renamed Björn's log file to US, not VC anymore!)
231 3/20/2018 6:53:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message US trained. ARVN up for Limop or pass (to be first on CIDG)
230 3/20/2018 6:09:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Setup file is on Dropbox.

US (Björn) is up for Medevac.

Good luck to you all, and especially me ;)
229 3/20/2018 6:04:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Then Randy gets NVA and me ARVN (the only possible combinations).

So:
- US: Björn
- ARVN: David
- NVA : Randy
- VC: Fred

I will setup the game in a minute.
Let's reuse the same Dropbox folder (I will move all the previous files into a subfolder) and we could still use this ACTS game (or if you prefer move into a new one).

Message from US:
Björn: 1 - NVA, 2 - ARVN, 3 - US
226 3/20/2018 6:00:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Now that i have some time, I will roll for random faction assignment without repetition (from last game).
Let's start by thew new world champion Björn, then Fred, Randy and I will get whatever is left.
225 3/18/2018 11:25:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message yep - I believe we are all in agreement!
224 3/18/2018 11:19:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Agreed, random assignment... different factions?
223 3/18/2018 11:07:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message Congrats, commie! Well played. Count me in for another, any faction.
222 3/18/2018 6:02:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Games such as Fitl and Cuba libre is good because you can do your turn uninterrupted. I like Falling sky but then you’ve to stop and ask; ”do you want to retreat” or ”do you want to do this” etc
221 3/18/2018 5:53:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Thanks for letting me in. You’ve been a great group to play with. I’m happy to play another game (Fire in the lake or other COIN-games).
220 3/18/2018 5:52:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message I am all for a new game of fitl with factions randomly distributed.
219 3/18/2018 5:44:00 AM Turn 1 US Message I am up for another game (FotL or any other).
218 3/18/2018 5:41:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message NVA need to be able to use infiltrate. I first thought NVA could play the event to let ARVN & US sweep and assault but they have to sweep in place so ARVN can sweep the guerillas Vinh-Binh but US has no troops there to assault the base.
217 3/18/2018 5:41:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Indeed, well played Bjorn. Shall we start another game?
216 3/18/2018 5:35:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Nope, you cannot attack VC (useless, anyway) and terror just shifts support.
I really liked the combo at Binh-Dinh, I didn't realise you could tax and terror if more than one guerrilla was underground in the same space (my bad, although NVA and ARVN have not helped US very much to keep VC at bay).

Congrats Björn!
215 3/18/2018 5:25:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Indeed, VC is at victory...and there is not much that the NVA can do with a LimOp to prevent that, is it?
214 3/18/2018 5:13:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message VC Ops + SA. NVA is up for Event or Lim Op. VC currently is exactly at his victory condition.
213 3/18/2018 4:24:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Yes, 4th Coup!
We are passed mid-game.
212 3/18/2018 4:20:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US assaults to remove VC's presence from cities and air strikes to take some NVA troops back to where they belong.

Coup is coming!

VS is up for SEALORDS.
211 3/17/2018 4:52:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Event taken. US is up.
210 3/17/2018 4:36:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC rallied and subverted. ARVN is up for Phan Quang Dan
209 3/17/2018 2:21:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message No, sorry my bad. It’s my turn. Sorry about the confusion.
208 3/17/2018 2:20:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message If ARVN pass you should be first up on the next card if I remember correctly.
207 3/17/2018 2:17:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message I forgot to fix the US error.
206 3/17/2018 2:16:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Pass. Viet Cong are next.
205 3/17/2018 1:38:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC must warn the ARVN government that if they use this turn to wipe out my position in the south then I will take the event next turn although it’s not optimal for me.
204 3/17/2018 12:30:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Oops, US moved an Irregular from Saigon to at AX (not valid because 4 ARVN troops already were on the choppers).
Juts take it back to Saigon.
The rest is OK.
203 3/17/2018 12:17:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA passes and then plays the Thanh Hoa event - over to ARVN for OP + SA.
202 3/17/2018 11:42:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US choppers takes ARVN troops to enemy territory, so NVA may think twice before triggering more harmful events.
Saigon transfers some patronage to resources.

NVA is up for Psychedelic Cookie.
201 3/17/2018 10:28:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message Sweep and Raid. US is next.
I call my ally's attention to the bare VC base in Kien Hoa-Vinh Binh
200 3/17/2018 9:56:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message I moved a VC guerilla from Binh Din to Kanh Hoa and removed one police there.

Yeah, but I didn´t feel add to ARVNs patronage and give NVA more troops. I think I gained more by getting an extra resource
199 3/17/2018 9:29:00 AM Turn 1 US Message There was no police in Binh-Dinh, so a VC guerrilla cannot be place there.
198 3/17/2018 9:23:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message I am really surprised you did not take the previous event (for free) as well!
197 3/17/2018 9:07:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message VC passed and then took the event Ruff Puff. Less ARVN police and more VC pieces on the board now...

ARVNs turn to retaliate with Ops + SA
196 3/17/2018 8:47:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA marched and bombarded. Over to VC to either play the event (and stay eligible) or take a limop.
195 3/17/2018 7:46:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US trains and pacifies Saigon.

NVA is up for "Light at the End of the Tunnel".
194 3/17/2018 6:58:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message Train, Govern. US is next.
193 3/17/2018 4:46:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA played the event and started deploying SA-2s along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Over to ARVN for OP + SA.
192 3/16/2018 5:57:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC terror in Hue. NVA is first up on SA-2s
191 3/16/2018 5:47:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Pass. VC is next.
190 3/16/2018 5:27:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US trains ARVN forces in Da Nang and pacifies QT-QN.

ARVN is up for Lim OP.
189 3/16/2018 4:44:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA took a limop (rally) - over to the US.
188 3/16/2018 9:17:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Sorry about this. I have made a new turn. Still Rally + Subvert. NVA is first up on Annam
187 3/16/2018 2:51:00 AM Turn 1 US Message The stacking limit is 2 bases per space, so VC cannot build a new one in QT-TT.
When infiltrating in KG-AX 2 police cubes have been removed AND a VC guerrilla added (eitherthe first one or remove 1 cube and add 1 guerrilla).
No Patronage has been taken.

So, I guess VC has to retake its turn.
186 3/15/2018 7:21:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC rallied and subverted. NVa is first up on Annam.
185 3/15/2018 7:05:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Took the event. VC is up.
184 3/15/2018 5:10:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC passes. ARVN is up for Election card
183 3/15/2018 3:54:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message VC is up for OP + SA
182 3/15/2018 3:26:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA took the event - 1 available US troop to unavailable - no degrade trail until coup.
181 3/14/2018 6:28:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US sweeps trying to prevent VC from terrorising the main cities and NVA from blocking main lines of communication.
Subsequent air strikes somehow alleviates the ongoing pressure of the red tide.

NVA is up for Oriskany.
180 3/14/2018 2:43:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Took the event. US is up.
179 3/13/2018 4:05:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA marched and bombarded - over to ARVN!
178 3/13/2018 2:32:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Pass. NVA is up.
177 3/12/2018 6:31:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC activates Tri Quang. ARVN gets a shot at Ops + SA
176 3/12/2018 6:04:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US sets a base in Da Nang and commits more troops into Da Nang and Saigon.

VC is up for Tri Quang.
175 3/12/2018 4:19:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA redeployed - over to US commitment.
174 3/12/2018 11:10:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message Ah, apologies, yes. NVA up for redeployment.
173 3/12/2018 10:53:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Actually, it should be up to NVA to redeploy! I’ll record my log tonight!
172 3/12/2018 10:45:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message To US for commitment.
171 3/12/2018 7:32:00 AM Turn 1 US Message This means that ARVN is up for redeploying its troops.
170 3/12/2018 7:29:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message True. Discard my file. I pass agitation.
169 3/12/2018 6:59:00 AM Turn 1 US Message VC also has to pay to remove Terror markers first for agitation during Coup!
This will cost VC all its resources!

Maybe Björn wants to reconsider his action before proceeding to redeployment.

168 3/12/2018 4:29:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message VC agitation done. Redeploy phase
167 3/12/2018 3:13:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Coup!
No Victory.
Resources has been distributed but I forgot to reduce Aid (-45 I think).
US pacifies as much as possible (not much, anyway), so no ARVN pacification.

Over to VC for Agitation.
166 3/11/2018 5:56:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message VC passes again.
165 3/11/2018 5:08:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Corrected.
US pacifies QT-QN (training 0) and advises ARVN to assault Da Nang and Can Tho.

VC is up (again) for McNamara Line or Lim Op (or pass again).
164 3/11/2018 4:50:00 AM Turn 1 US Message I am afraid you are right :(
I will correct the turn right away!
163 3/10/2018 6:27:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message I am afraid US cannot sweep during Monsoon.
162 3/10/2018 6:10:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message VC passes
161 3/10/2018 5:46:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Sorry, all the emails ended up as junk.

US sweeps BT-BT and clears BT-BT and An Xuyen of insurgents with Air STrikes.

VC is up for McNamara Line or Lim Op before Coup!
160 3/10/2018 11:45:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message VC isn't up yet. It's US, then VC, then Coup.
159 3/10/2018 11:38:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message VC passes
158 3/10/2018 8:07:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message I’m away over the weekend as I said. Which event is it. I will either take the even or pass.
157 3/10/2018 7:32:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message OK. LimOp Train in Saigon.
US, then VC, then Coup.
156 3/9/2018 1:35:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Ooops - NVA forgot to move its token to op +SA so ARVN can only take a limop
155 3/8/2018 6:39:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message I didn't see anything that let NVA stay eligible, so I moved his marker to Ineligible.
Train and Govern. US is next.
154 3/8/2018 3:19:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message As agreed, NVA contained the blue tide by moving and infiltrating the VC infrastructure but without NVA crossing the victory threshold (though it could have!). Over to ARVN!
153 3/8/2018 1:29:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message I will be away over the weekend but depending on what comes up I can do my move ”manually”. I have limited resouces for grand operations anyway.

Sorry about this.
152 3/8/2018 10:55:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Oops - I had forgotten about the shift to neutral in each space! Sorry for that! I will record my log tonight.
151 3/8/2018 10:51:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message I am afraid infiltration can only replace ONE VC piece in each space so NVA cannot take over the whole VC infrastructure in one go.
150 3/8/2018 10:42:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Dear NVA ambassador,

I do not understand why your armies cannot infiltrate in both An Xuyen and Kien Phong to reduce the influence (-4) of VC forces there (Infiltrate 1 or 2 spaces with NVA > VC, no need for VC units there).

It is very unlikely we get access to Ia Drang and, not knowing what will be the following event, it is not reasonable to ask us to just renounce to attack NVA.
Having said so, we think we will have more important matters in mind that targeting NVA troops, unless they are at victory, of course. This is a very minor risk you must take.
149 3/8/2018 9:07:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Dear commander of the free world forces, I am afraid that my infiltration SA will only reduce VC points by two so it will not be enough to avoid a VC victory if the coup card comes next. In any case, and at this stage, i am only expecting the US to confirm that they will not use the ia drang event against NVA should ARVN decides to pass. Do you confirm?
148 3/7/2018 8:42:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Per the latest file, NVA is up.
147 3/7/2018 6:41:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message I can agree to no Ia Drang, but I do need to do some training and moving.
146 3/7/2018 4:52:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US returning from a very busy week, sorry for the delay.

NVA can deal with VC in the next card, as it can play both Op + SA.
Just Infiltrate in An Xuyen and Kien Phong.

US already had to save the day once, so I think it is fair that NVA does the same, especially when taking into account that it had wiped the US troops from the map.
145 3/7/2018 4:30:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message While waiting for the US to confirm their intentions, I would like to reach out to the ARVN and suggest a non-agression pact until the next coup. NVA will not inflict any casualties on ARVN nor grab any new province. In return, the ARVN will commit to do the same - in particular, it will not play the Ia Drang event against the NVA. Would this be agreable to the ARVN leader?
144 3/6/2018 6:48:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message You are absolutely right - I just misread the NVA terror operation - which means that the game is more challenging than what I thought. I could plan for an infiltration in Quang Tri but this would not be enoug. The US would have to train one irregular in Quang Tin and pacify there. Which would reduce your total by 4 points. US what do you think?
143 3/6/2018 5:28:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message See also this BGG-thread. Correction NVA can stop VC from winning but has to use Infiltrate

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/21308552#21308552
142 3/6/2018 5:25:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message I don´t think the move in Kien Phong is correct though. NVA terror moves any Support towards Neutral. But Kien Phong doesn´t have any Support since it´s at active opposition.

So NVA can stop US from winning but can´t stop VC. Only US can do that.
141 3/6/2018 3:29:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA would like to congratuate its VC ally for its major achievements in the South. However, the North Vietnamese politburo has been informed of many revisionist movements around Can Tho and has ordered its troops to use every possible mean to ensure that the local population is educated according to pure communist values. NVA would also like to reach out to the US and let them know that they have nothing to worry about the NVA control of Hue. NVA will ensure that this city keeps supporting the US. Over to ARVN.
140 3/6/2018 6:07:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message VC terror. Lim op for NVA.
139 3/5/2018 6:25:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message LimOp Train.
VC is next.
138 3/5/2018 5:09:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Being in a dire situation, helicopters bring some US troops from the far north to try to save the day.
Saigon is cleared of red troops but the rest of the country could be lost unless the monsoon season comes right away.

ARVN is up for Main Force Bns or Lim OP.
