172 11/6/2018 10:49:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hi Carlo!
After all I decide that any supply line may use only supply eligible ports => all Allied controled spaces east of Dacca are OOS (Your opinion from the beginning of our discussion I think).
Maybe I send this question to some forum, but sure Mark will tell me the same.
Please roll the dice.
Next summer we are in Canada, but in 2020 we should meet in Sardinia to have a close look on how this Island is supplied with pasta, red wine and seafood...
:-))
171 11/5/2018 6:45:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Sigh, dura lex sed lex!
IMHO a supply eligible port is necessary to store the supplies shipped. So I closed all your supply eligible port in India and I thought all your units will be OOS; BUT...
But my opinion is irrelevant: the rule 6.21 speak about supply eligible port only when last hexside crossed is terrain. Next I studied the supply path from ultimate supply source to HQ: they can use an unlimited number of (supply eligible???) port. The rules says only “port”, (NOT supply eligible port!), so this supply path probably does not need “supply eligible ports” (please Mark, add “supply eligible” in the next rules).
a)The supply lines from HQ to units, use supply eligible port
b)The supply lines from Ultimate supply source to HQ, use... ports

Strangely (for me) Calcutta HQ is supplied; so I wasted (good) units and (bad) cards in a ruinous plan. Sigh!
Important: I think Madras is OOS: last hexside crossed is terrain.
If you agree, tomorrow I'll roll dices.
If you change idea and decide that Calcutta is not supplied, you could win an holiday in Sardinia during next summer :-))))
Good night, Beda.
170 11/5/2018 8:04:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Think we'll have it soon:

On one hand the difference between Rangoon and Akyab in message 119 and Maldive, Colombo and Trincomalee in the actual situation is that the later three are supplied by sea while the last hexside crossed when
tracing a supply line to the two on the mainland is a land hexside. So they need the overland logistical range.

On the other hand I didn't notice that changes between sea and land in a supply line can happen only in supply eligible ports - as you mentioned before.

So in the actual situation Calcutta and Madras are in supply while Maldives, Colombo and Trincomalee are not, OK?
169 11/4/2018 4:13:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message OK, I discovered the rule: 6.21 (3): “through a combination of land and sea hexsides from the supplying HQ to the units, provided that the sea component is traced through only ONE SUPPLY ELIGIBLE PORT other than the hex the HQ occupies (which will always be another port hex) or potentially the unit activating is located in. ”
I think we need an elegible port to change from terrain to sea.
168 11/4/2018 3:49:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Gulp! Big question!
With the same rules in the same situation you put Rangoon and Akyab OOS (message 119).
Before CVL-Hermes made Rangoon not elegible port.
Now Maldive, Calcutta and Madras are not elegible port.
Do you see any difference?
I'll try to search in forum the answer.

Hi Carlo!
I think the Maledives are in supply as Madras, Colombo and Trincomalee are.
Although none of this ports is supply eligible they are all less than 10 hexes from Calcutta and there is only one port where the supply line changes from land to sea (Madras).
What do you think?

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.
