135 7/20/2018 9:57:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Took the event. US is next.
134 7/20/2018 4:02:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message I have been very busy lately, so I did not check the previous turns.
ARVN could not govern to increase Patronage, as no Aid was available to be transferred.
I have corrected it by using the first govern action to increase Aid (popx3) and the second one to increase Patronage.

NVA takes the event, so the people in Vietnam realise that the current government is a puppet of US invaders.
Support drops in KH-VB, BT-BT and CR. -3 Patronage.

VC is up for SEALORDS.
133 7/19/2018 8:23:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Took the event. NVA is next, and is the only one eligible for the current card.
132 7/18/2018 2:44:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US passes - over to VC.
131 7/17/2018 6:18:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message ARVN done. Over to US
130 7/17/2018 9:27:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US committed a few troops - over to ARVN to trigger the fourth campaign...
129 7/17/2018 8:45:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message I find the game very dynamic. But perhaps that is my communist re-education talking.
128 7/16/2018 9:22:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Nearly all NVA troops retreat back to Cambodia/Laos.
Aid to 0 and and 3 US troops and 1 base to out of play.

US is up for commitment.

I agree that this game is not as dynamic as others, with VC and NVA sitting on their hands waiting for the right opportunity. Nevertheless, they will have to go for it right now to stop the foraign invaders.
I am not sure I can find a replacement at this stage of the game.
127 7/15/2018 7:41:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message ARVN redeployment. Over to NVA for redeployment.
126 7/15/2018 5:43:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message Sorry to hear it, Fred. I'm having enough fun to cover us both.
No VC agitation, no file.
To ARVN for redeploy.
125 7/15/2018 4:18:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US patrolled and advised - coup triggered - US pacify in 4 spaces - over to VC.

Side note: for some reasons, i do not get any fun at all from this game. Please let me know in case you know another player who would not mind replacing me as the leader of the free world. I will keep on playing as long as needed.
124 7/14/2018 5:40:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message I try not to be so stupid that I would miss that... I succeed sometimes.
123 7/14/2018 5:13:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Indeed, this is what I was missing...
122 7/14/2018 5:09:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message ARVN resources are below ECON, so US cannot spend them.
121 7/14/2018 2:06:00 PM Turn 1 US Message I am pretty sure I must be missing something but is there anything that would prevent me from training/pacifying in Bin Dinh and bag the game? or airlift some troops from An Loc to Da Nang and do the same?
120 7/14/2018 4:31:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA takes the event. 1 available US troop to out of play and no Trail degradation through incoming Coup!

US is up for Op + SA during Monsoon.
119 7/13/2018 5:02:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message ARVN train īGovern. NVA is up. US is now slightly below its victory condition.
118 7/13/2018 8:09:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Terror and Subvert.
ARVN is next, and has the easiest way to pull the US away from victory via Govern. We the opposition heartily encourage native theft of US funds. G.I. Joe can afford it.
117 7/11/2018 6:19:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message Might add that VC is upp for Ops + SA.
116 7/11/2018 3:07:00 PM Turn 1 US Message The US passes and then plays the event to get more troops back home. Complete evacuation of the country should be completed soon.

113 7/9/2018 4:18:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message Tax and March. ARVN is next.

111 7/7/2018 3:27:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA passes and then attacks on QT-TT, PD, and KP.
Bombardment takes place in Saigon and KP.

US is up for Sihanouk.
110 7/6/2018 5:25:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message ARVN sweep + Raid. Over to NVA
109 7/6/2018 4:52:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US trained - over to ARVN.
108 7/3/2018 6:30:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message March, Subvert. The US President's speech was inspiring, for a round-eyed imperialist running dog.
US is next.
107 7/3/2018 6:07:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message ARVN takes out an NVA guerilla on a loC. Over to VC for Rack Ba Rai.
106 7/3/2018 12:27:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA, although still lethargic after a well deserved siesta, decides to cross the border at the light of the international presure to stop the current government from abusing the Vietnamise population.
Our honorable leader will hope that the US will refrain from showering with napalm our bases in the jungle while we help the free world in their hour of need.

ARVN is up for ADSID or Lim Op.
105 7/2/2018 2:35:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Communication from the President of the United States 'My fellow countrymen, I know that many of you are profoundly concerned about our struggle in Vietnam. There are passionate convictions about the wisest course for our Nation to follow. There are many sincere and patriotic Americans who harbor doubts about sustaining the current commitment. I have to admit that I now share these doubts and, as a consequence, have instructed General Westmoreland to stop all our offensive missions and follow a policy of strict neutrality. The Government of South Vietnam has greatly disappointed us and no longer deserves any more american soldier dying for it. I wish all the best to the south Vietnamese citizens.' US trained. Over to NVA.
104 7/2/2018 9:59:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message US is next, and is kindly encouraged to do a Train + Saigon transfer.
103 7/2/2018 9:53:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message What is this strange lethargy that has overcome the US and the NVA? I can do much less than either of you against ARVN.
102 7/2/2018 9:52:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Any US piece killed via Attack/Ambush, not just troops, goes to casualties. Not sure where that irregular ended up, but it should be in casualties.
101 7/1/2018 1:40:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message ARVN exchanged resources instead of Aid for Patronage (corrected).

NVA keeps doing nothing useful and rallies in Southern Laos (improving Trail).

VC is up for Long Tan.
100 7/1/2018 7:53:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message Patrol + Govern. Over to NVA.
99 7/1/2018 6:42:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Pretty exciting game where not much is happening. ARVN on its way to victory and US too bored to do much about it. US trained and airstriked. ARVN is up. I was about to invite AVRN to play the event but i guess my ally will just pass and govern again...sigh...
98 7/1/2018 3:00:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message US Irregular should go to Available, not Casualties.

95 6/30/2018 8:11:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA tries to rebuild the trail after the US bombardments.

The sequence of events is not helping anyone but ARVN.
I know it is too much to hope for, but the US launching a Rolling Thunder operation is not going to help to hinder ARVN progress.
94 6/30/2018 8:06:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

93 6/30/2018 7:44:00 AM Turn 1 ARVN Message Sorry, I missed the part that you place at bases and only read the part "without NVA control"

Can NVA move the troops to Can Tho?
92 6/30/2018 7:28:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message ARVN cannot train forces in KG-AX, because it is not a city and there are not COIN bases there.

Train + Govern. NVA is up.
90 6/30/2018 3:52:00 AM Turn 1 US Message US plays the event and heavily airstrike Laos & degrade the trail. US would be grateful if its ARVN ally could take his share of the fight. This is the last warning before the US starts pulling out of some provinces and take patronage away. Over to ARVN.
89 6/29/2018 5:11:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message Train, Subvert. US is next.
88 6/28/2018 4:29:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message US is not well regarded in the country.

78 6/22/2018 2:16:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Before this gets out of hand, we need to repeat the commitment phase.

"US then may move up to 10 US Troops and 2 US Bases among the US Available box, any COIN-Control spaces, LoCs, and Saigon."
Meaning that troops in non-COIN-Control spaces cannot be moved.
Accordingly, troops must stay in TN and QT-TT.

Regarding ARVN, it is eligible, as the previous card stated "ineligible through next card" (a Coup card), not "ineligible through next EVENT card".
77 6/21/2018 6:44:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message I believe Iím still ineligible due to Corps commander.

Iím also surprised that my most trusted ally distrust my intention to uphold peace and democracy in South Vietnam. Donít know where that came from...😋
76 6/21/2018 3:51:00 PM Turn 1 US Message US decided to not commit any troops to the defense of south vietnam until the ARVN demonstrates its willingness to fight. US trained. Over to ARVN for a Limop.

60 6/15/2018 3:13:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message NVA marches onto Kien Phong and a couple of LoCs (I forgot to pay 1 resource for marching! Please, correct it).
Then, US troops in KP are ambushed and the province falls back to NVA control.

ARVN is up for Lim Op.

Then VC has the opportunity to harm ARVN and make it ineligible for another turn, so take into consideration that course of action.
59 6/13/2018 6:41:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message LimOp Rally.
NVA is up, with ARVN close to victory.
58 6/13/2018 6:15:00 PM Turn 1 US Message ARVN could at least give the illusion that he is fighting a war....Anyyay, US trains in Saigon and airlift a few ARVN troops and rangers in harm's way. Over to the VC.

56 6/13/2018 2:07:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message For once, the decision was easy to make.

49 6/11/2018 6:33:00 AM Turn 1 VC Message Thanks for the correction. I just undid my Rally there.
US is next.
48 6/11/2018 1:40:00 AM Turn 1 NVA Message Randy, you cannot flip underground both guerrillas at Kien Phong because you do not have a base there.
You should just place a new Guerrilla.
47 6/10/2018 8:27:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message Clarity, and reminder, appreciated. Sorry for the delay. Rallied in a few places. US up next.
46 6/10/2018 6:27:00 AM Turn 1 US Message and, just for the sake of clarity, VC is up.

42 6/7/2018 6:06:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message Comrade brother! Please accept our gift of 4 resources to oppress the colonialist invader.
41 6/7/2018 5:19:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message Hey Randy, I am in need of resources, so I am likely to also pass on CIDG.
However, you can pass me a couple of resources and then I could trigger the event to reduce the enemy forces (and increase yours) in PD, BD, QN or QT-TT (your call).
Faithfully, your brother in arms.
40 6/7/2018 12:51:00 PM Turn 1 VC Message Fixed. Pass, NVA is next.
39 6/6/2018 4:55:00 PM Turn 1 US Message David, you are correct. Airstrike do not remove tunnels. Randy, can you please put the tunnel back in QT and, instead, move one US troop from Hue to QT (so as to threaten your tunnelled base)? thanks!
38 6/6/2018 4:19:00 PM Turn 1 NVA Message A couple of things from last COIN actions:
1) I think ARVN forgot to reduce Aid after increasing Patronage.
2) Air Strikes and Special Forces (Rangers and Irregulars) cannot affect base tunnels (after all they are underground), so the tunnel marker should return to the base in QT-TT.

Please Randy, check it and correct it.
37 6/6/2018 2:58:00 PM Turn 1 ARVN Message ARVN Train + Govern. Over to VC

Please note I will be away on a trip 7th to 11th of june and then 14th to 17th of june as wel. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Ps: two logs were loaded : the main one (24) and an additional one (24 add) to record one missing sweep.
