This and next week I`m not sure how many plays I will be able to do. I`m moving to my home state and have to search a flat within a week and to move there. From October on I don`t know when I will get access to the internet. So there might be one or two weeks I cannot play.

Allied Offensive is canceled. All units are placed back at their starting locations. The Japanese player may reduce one full strength Allied CA or DD naval unit (Japanese player choice) that was activated for the canceled Offensive. This can only reduce, not eliminate, the naval unit. If none of the specified naval units are available, there is no additional effect. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

49 9/9/2018 6:01:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Flip the AF AVG please,

So you need to flip the AVG and apply the Mendano damage .back to you
48 9/8/2018 6:31:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message you have not yet applied damage to the Air units after the Rangoon battle. As per rule, you pick. I think it went under because I eliminated th eothe runits. I think it would be better to let you apply all your results for yourself.

This will be my play, ABDA to Kendari. If it is not possible to resolve this leaver it in the deck, when in it will appear, I will play it as event an draw a supplement card. Ok?

29 9/7/2018 5:13:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Ok battle rolls and drm etc. I will wirte in ACTS as well as the Moves, an just execute in vassal.
28 9/7/2018 3:44:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Post battle move sent.Hopefully correct

Happy to do everything on ACTS with moves on VASSAL. VASSAL dice roller is notorious for being bad. You did roll a lot of 0 's for yourself.

Would much prefer to use ACTS die roller
27 9/4/2018 7:56:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message or we write everything in ACTS and do the moves on vassal, so there is no need to write logfiles.
26 9/4/2018 7:54:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I think we need some rounds to develop an etiquette. For example that you move your air units in Battle hexes. Another problem as I was writing the logfiles I could not read your moves in ACTS, since we do all moves in the log.
How do you prefer rolling ACTS, Vassal or the implmented www dice rolling in the module? Are there any differences. I used the normal vassal dice this time.
25 9/4/2018 7:27:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message You`re right, I should have done it, this will be more efficient. I haven`t played online a lot.
24 9/4/2018 6:07:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Have you finished all your reactions ?

Does the phasing play resolve all the battles, or do we resolve them one at a time .? Just checking the etiquette that we are using
23 9/4/2018 7:39:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message rules are fine so far, but I also do sometimes some mistakes so have an eye on that...

Eots returned to my table again these days, good way to shake off my rust too.

21 9/4/2018 7:24:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #24: 2 / Skip Bombing Attack: Battle of the Bismark Sea
The Japanese permanently lose one Amphibious Shipping Point unless it is their last ASP. Bonus: Prior to battle, if an active Japanese CA, CL or APD naval unit moved within the extended range of a U.S. non-LRB air unit it loses one step. If more than one naval unit qualifies, Japanese player's choice. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if use as an event.

OC: 2 EC: 0

Message from Allies:
Nachi is Range of the FEAF in Kendari, so it will be reduced.

In Manila there is no battle, I think the HQ is simply put on the TT.
ACTS is great, but I don`t like that it doesn`t show the tpe of card in the menu. You really need to know the deck or click through.

14 8/29/2018 5:10:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message No Problem, I didn`t wanted to urge you. I just wondered since we haven`t really started yet and was afraid you abandoned the game. No need to hurry.
13 8/29/2018 3:42:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message I am sorry . I have been away for the last 5 days I forgot to tell you it seems. Iíll get a turn done today

Flip the Japanese ASP marker to its No Barges side. If Japanese Barges are not currently in play (Japanese card 73) that event is permanently superseded. Place the PT Boat marker on the game turn track as a reminder. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

9 8/25/2018 1:28:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message you told me you are a little bit rusty. As far as I know the first rounds the JP takes out all air units to put the HQ OOS. Otherwise the Allies are free to reinforce the DEI with US units from the Philippines.
If you want to redo your move, feel free to do so, otherwise continue.

7 8/25/2018 1:07:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hello Simon,

I just finished a For the People match where we didn`t exchanged logfiles. We sinply did the move of the other side. So I didn`t have in mind to creeate one for the emergency naval moves. Maybe you were waiting for them. But in EotS it makes more sense to exchange them, since there is lot more pieces to move around.
