435 11/24/2018 3:20:00 PM May-Aug 1944 Allies Message I had really good cards in '43 so I was able to just chew up your whole navy and airforce. Coupled with bad surprise rolls it put me about 8 months ahead. Not a lot that Japan can do other than hang on. But even so, if you had been able to collapse China and draw the Tojo resigns, there were a couple of turns things could have been hairy for me.
I think going after Rangoon with the weather card was just too costly a play for turn 2. YOu really want to grab everything you want/can get that turn and take full advantage before the USA can fight back. ISR is a real pain for Japan. But not as big a pain as good US cards and bad dice.
Good time to take a break for the tourney. I hope I don't meet you, I'm sure you'll roll nothing but awesome dice, and they will be hard earned.
Hopefully you can take out your vengeance on some poor unsuspecting sap. Not me!
Good games. You're always reliable and hard nosed. Hopefully you picked up some good tricks to use. GL in the tournament.
434 11/24/2018 10:15:00 AM May-Aug 1944 Japanese Message I'll surrender here... I won't have a chance to get a replacement step in, and I can't draw any more this turn... Well done, as always...

I don't see how JP can avoid the blockade. You just do what you do, eliminate air, and eliminate air, and eliminate air, and JP can't really do anything about it...

You put me in ISR in turn 2, I think, and here it is turn 9 and I never drew a steenking card to get out of it... grrr...

With the tourney starting soon, we probably shouldn't start another one... When the tourney is done, and you ever feel like a game, let me know... I've learned a lot from these :)

let's try another turn, maybe I'll have a way to break the blockade...
414 11/22/2018 9:59:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message PBM done. bty.

I should have the blockade in effect, but you can probably break it during the turn. However, I only have to check in the national Status segment of each turn to see if it's in effect. See if you see any paths to a resource after my PBM for this turn.
413 11/22/2018 10:07:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message you have your toehold in Japan...

but, can I not still trace a path to the resource hex in Kuantan?

maybe more of a philosophical question, but can I put reinforcements in Kure, since it is a supply source itself? even if you have air over it?

409 11/21/2018 8:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message I thought maybe they could be played, as the intel reaction card is played in 7, then if that card is drawn right away, there in step 7, then attack reaction cards aren't played till step 9... (and step 9 would have no "knowledge" of when that card showed up in the hand...)

in any case, I'll just discard that card and not doing anything... isn't really anything worth doing...

408 11/21/2018 7:53:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message Cards you draw can't be used in the current battle. You'll want to play all cards first before drawing any so there's no confusion on if you had them or not.

Message from Japanese:
so, this was the card I drew... Can I play this right away, as part of this Offensive? If so, you do the roll and flip the Essex if I get a hit. Then, I'd draw another, which would be my third draw...
