453 4/18/2019 2:50:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message USA uses the 7 production markers as follows:

4 go to the Far East.

1 goes to the A-Bomb track (so that currently has a 5/6 chance of success).

1 goes towards a fresh naval marker in S W Pacific to bring that up to the necessary 3 to advance into Kyushu.

1 goes towards an OS at Kyushu.

I have one OS/NS yet to place due to Pacific theatre leadership. I'll wait to see what Churchill does before deciding on that.


452 4/18/2019 2:31:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message It's tricky. There may well be a best play Bob, but given other players' actions and how rolls resolve I find it a challenge to see clearly what to do.

In a longer game there can be even more of a 'let's pull together' to roll back the axis, while placing markers in colonies and countries for future payback, in the early conferences. Self interest probably kicks in more in the final third of the game (which is what we have been paying).

The cooperative v competitive dynamics are challenging.
451 4/17/2019 9:36:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message I'll spend one marker to help the Atom Bomb movement.

I'll spend one marker to activate my POL/MIL marker.

I'll spend my last 3 to provide offensive support into Korea

If I have/had to use more than one production marker
to activate my POL/MIL marker then take one away from Korea
450 4/17/2019 7:17:00 AM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message We defeated Germany in the last War Phase so no further front movement is possible in that theatre and no offensive support markers can be placed, but clandestine network and political alignment markers *can* be placed, see 7.8.

7.82 gives the criteria for defeating Japan. We cannot get a front into Japan because itís an amphibious space, all fronts are at least two spaces away and you cannot advance two spaces on a breakthrough if the second space is an amphibious one. Two of the three criteria for the Emperor to surrender have been met, the only thing thatís missing is the A-Bomb. If the A-Bomb marker advances this turn then Japan surrenders, otherwise it doesnít.

You need to have a look at the victory conditions now, and decide whatís your best chance. 4.41 and 4.42 cover what happens if Japan surrenders, depending on how far the player with most points is ahead of the player with fewest points. If Japan does not surrender then 4.43 applies. The final victory tiebreaker is at 4.44.

Right now there are three DOs on the Soviet Far East track, which translates into 6 offensive support markers and you *must* spend your first two production to put two of those markers there (Paul will have to spend his first four production to place the others). If you get a breakthrough there then you get 8VP for having the Front in Korea.

At the moment youíre in last place for VPs, but I think you are still in with a chance of a win. My opinion, and Iíd be really interested to hear Paulís view, is that you need to spend one production to activate the Pol-Mil marker, consider whether you want the A-Bomb completed and, if so, how much to spend on it (bearing in mind that Paul and I might spend production on it too, or we might not), and then spend the rest on offensive support markers to increase the chance of a breakthrough into Korea. You need to consider the victory conditions and also look at the VP schedule in the rule book (the one in the module is out of date), itís at 9.4. A-F cover the points available from clandestine networks and political alignment, Y-AA cover the A-Bomb. You need to think about reducing Paulís and/or my VP total as well as increasing your own, the balance will depend on which of 4.41-4.43 you think will be used to determine victory.

Itís a tricky problem, you may need to take some time thinking through your options. The reason it took so long to play my last card was mostly that I was having a difficult day with my father, but also that I had to think about whether to take the strategic materials issue to keep the extra production to myself or take the Global issue back to keep the points and stop Paul from getting them.

Thatís what I think, I'd like to hear Paulís views as well.
449 4/17/2019 5:58:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Okay, a few 'friendly' questions before plotting my move.

If defeating the Axis (Japan) as the goal, will putting any markers on the A-BOMB for Russia help or hurt this?

Can I still place offensive markers in East Germany for the attempt at 5 VP and if so is there any German defense or is it an auto win? (perhaps Paton and Rommel will team up to fight Uncle Joe?)

I seem to have 'won' the areas in the east for POL markers so doesn't seem to make sense to place anything else there - but I also don't see much sense in placing them anywhere else as Allies (British) in Med area and (Americans) Europe area seem to control all of this so its just removals vs actual placement - seems to waste them. And in the Pacific - same deall Did I miss something?


"Best" play for me seems to be place as much as possible in China an hope for a 'breakthru" into Japan with some British help?

SO, tentative placement would be most of markers in China with 1 or two in A-Bomb and perhaps remove the marker in Greece or place one in Poland.

I'll wait for comment before proceeding




448 4/16/2019 6:34:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message That's the end of the Meeting Segment. The UK wins the conference with 4 issues against 2 for the USSR and 1 for the USA and gets the conference winner marker again.

The Strategic Materials issue finished in the centre of the table so we each get an extra production.

Now the Decision Segment. First is placement of Directed Offensives, USSR must place theirs in Jehol China. I won both the USA DOs and place both of them in Jehol China as well.

Next is production. USA gets 7 including the Strategic Materials. UK loses 1 to the USSR for them winning the UK production issue so has a total of 4 including the Strategic Materials. USSR gains one from the UK so has a total of 5 including the Strategic Materials, I only see two Naval markers in the Arctic so the USSR doesn't get the Arctic production.

Starting with Bob we each now allocate production. Each DO requires two production to be used for offensive support markers in that space. We also have the option to use production to increase the A-Bomb roll, each production spent for this adds +1 to the die roll (see 6.10.2) and that decision must be made now. This is also where we decide whether to spend production to activate our Pol-Mil markers (see 6.8).

Over to Bob now to allocate his production.

Message from UK Churchill:
UK doesn't debate and then plays John Anderson, a 4, to move the Global issue from US-2 to UK-2.

From Anderson's attribute, on a roll of 1 the UK gets two offensive support markers.
446 4/16/2019 3:01:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Harold Ickes, 3, moves global issue from UK 1 to USA 2.

I'm expecting this to be countered easily enough.
445 4/16/2019 2:49:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Nick's / Churchill's conference skills clearly surpasses ours.
444 4/15/2019 6:52:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Americans are the only one who can 'stop' British from 'yet again' winning the conference.

The player who won the
most issues wins the conference and receives a conference victory
marker. In case of ties follow the tiebreaker procedure (4.5).

4.52 During the Decision Segment if two or more players have
won the same number of issues, starting with Stalin and proceeding
to the left, a player can decide to use their active Leader to
break the tie. The first Leader to commit breaks the tie, and no
further Leader can change the outcome. In the circumstance
where a player uses their leader to break a tie that they were not
involved in they choose who wins the tie.
Note that in both situations the tiebreaking Leader will be inactive
for the rest of the conference.
4.53 If no player uses their Leader to break a tie as above, then
refer to the US playerís national characteristic (Arsenal of
Democracy): if the US was involved in the tie, he wins the tie;
if the US was not involved, he decides which of the other two
players wins the tie.

Message from UK Churchill:
Discard Sir Henry M. Wilson to play Churchill to debate Truman and move the Pol-Mil 1/3 from US-4 to UK-3.

Then pass again so it's Paul to play his final card.

On a 2-4 it's all too stressful for Winnie and he has a heart attack
442 4/15/2019 5:40:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Russian side has no cards nor a leader so I'm done until
the combat phase -
441 4/15/2019 4:52:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Pol-Mil 1/3 only advances from middle to 4 on the US track.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
Discard Ernest J King to play Truman to advance Pol-Mil 1/3. Truman rolls on INEXPERIENCE. If 2-5 he is only a 4 rather than a 7.
439 4/14/2019 9:57:00 AM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message No debate from the UK either
438 4/14/2019 6:07:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message USA will not debate the Soviets. That 1/3 marker is popular.

Will the UK debate?
437 4/13/2019 9:23:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message LAST play - my 2 guy will move the 1/3 Pol/Mil marker
down from USA 2 to center
436 4/13/2019 5:09:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message UK debates the US play with Sir Stafford Cripps, a 5, and the US DO is moved from US-3 to UK-2. The UK will then Pass and so it's round to Bob to play his next (and final?) card.
435 4/13/2019 2:40:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Correct. Am away all day but will check games late when back or tomorrow morning.
434 4/12/2019 5:49:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message No debate -

SO if the Production issue is in center we ALL get
something and if not then only the player who
has it in his column gets it right?
433 4/12/2019 1:32:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message William Leahy [1] has a +2 for Directed Offensive. He uses this to move USA directed offensive from the middle of the table to US Track box 3.
432 4/11/2019 5:53:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message LOL -

Hew there is a Vassal module of Gangsters - if we can get two more we might be able to have a go
431 4/10/2019 6:47:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message Strings up to his old tricks again...the Slumlordís ready, though (at least, he is if the coin-toss came out right)
430 4/10/2019 6:07:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Stalin is happy his 'good buddy' from that small island
sees things his way....
429 4/10/2019 4:55:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message Sorry, I donít know where the day has gone. Iíve just got some new glasses, theyíre varifocals they are taking some getting used to.

Anyway, after much thought, an extended period of indecision and, finally, a coin toss the UK has decided not to debate the Russian play
428 4/9/2019 4:27:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message I need to think about my options here, and Iíve had a long day out with my father so Iím very tired. I should be able to reply in the morning.
427 4/9/2019 11:28:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message So Beria moved British production to Stalin's chair. US won't debate this. UK might?

Message from USSR Stalin:
Siberia?
424 4/8/2019 9:22:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Play Beria - this is a '3' card.
The effect on the 'next card' I play is meaningless
as this is the last turn but I'll roll anyway to see
if the next guy goes to Siberia...

Anyway, move the Production marker up to Stalin's chair
423 4/8/2019 12:37:00 PM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message US will not debate, so it is over to the Soviets to play a card.
422 4/7/2019 6:08:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message No debate from me
421 4/7/2019 5:41:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message UK doesn't debate. Then I play Anthony Eden, a 5 with a +1 for Pol-Mil on US or Soviet tracks, and I move the Pol-Mil 1/3 from US-4 to UK-2.

Back round to Bob then Paul for debate again.
420 4/6/2019 7:17:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message With a grunt, the Soviet delegation let's it go
- NO DEBATE
419 4/6/2019 7:06:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Averell Harriman 4, moves Pol-Mil 1/3. He gets a +1 as the issues is on the Soviet track. Move of 5 is therefore from Sov 1 to US 4.
418 4/6/2019 6:51:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message USA has next play then. Shortly.
417 4/5/2019 5:47:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message UK does not debate either
416 4/4/2019 2:36:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message USA will not debate that. UK might?
415 4/3/2019 5:53:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message I'll play my Cav. guy who has 5 points if Stalin
is NOT active - I'll move the Global marker down
to British 1
414 4/3/2019 1:42:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message So now the Soviets play a card, or pass and I play my next one. Bob to choose.
413 4/2/2019 8:41:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message I will debate with my "4" card and using the NYET will make that a 5 - moving the marker down to center then on to Russians area on 1st step.
412 4/2/2019 6:30:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message I'll play Sir Stuart Menzies, a 1 with a +3 for Pol-Mil issues, and move the Pol-Mil 1/3 from the centre of the table to the UK-4 space. Back to you two for debate.

I have a long(-ish) day out on Thursday and a hospital appointment for my father on Friday (ENT trying to de-wax his ears) - I'll try and get online in the evenings, but might not be able to use VASSAL.
411 4/2/2019 5:05:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Am away Weds-Thur so the usual 'I'll have a laptop, but who knows if there is any reception' warning applies.
410 4/1/2019 5:46:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message nothing from Stalin -
409 4/1/2019 5:05:00 AM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message No debate from the UK. Weíre going out today so I wonít be able to make a move until mid-evening.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
Henry H Arnold advances A Bomb research. He is a 1, with a +3 for the issue, so if this is contested the issue is on a notional 8 space on the track.

Use can kill Arnold, so for completeness here's a roll. He dies on a 1.
407 3/31/2019 11:50:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Truman does not contests, so you have it Stalin. On with the next USA card.
406 3/31/2019 7:42:00 AM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message Churchill does not debate Stalinís play.
405 3/31/2019 6:52:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message I will use a 2 card (discard) and then use Stalin
himself as the move - Stalin will advance the 2/2 Pol/Mil marker to his chair - and since I used a
Pol/Mil marker I get one clandestine marker to use
also.

Stalin can only be 'debated' by another leader.

If not, this issue is then off the table having moved
up to Stalin's chair
404 3/30/2019 8:17:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message USA does not contest, so Soviets have next card play.
403 3/29/2019 5:53:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Russia remains silent - British can have their offensive
402 3/28/2019 4:52:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message Sorry, things took longer than I had expected. I'll play Sir Percy Noble, a 2, and move a US Directed Offensive issue to the UK-2 space.


401 3/28/2019 12:48:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message No debate from the UK either. I should be able to get to my move in an hour or so.
400 3/28/2019 12:47:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Stalin sits quite for A-bomb movement
399 3/28/2019 12:32:00 PM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message James F Byrnes [2] advances A-Bomb research to +2 USA space and then another 2 spaces to the +4 space because Truman is active in the conference.
398 3/28/2019 12:27:00 PM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message Neither does USA. On to the USA card play.
397 3/27/2019 9:55:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message UK does not debate the Russian play.
396 3/27/2019 9:34:00 PM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message I'll play a 3 and move British production up 3 then one more for using production total of 4
395 3/27/2019 7:40:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message UK picks both US Directed Offensives.

Round to Russia to advance an issue
394 3/27/2019 5:51:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message USA selects A-Bomb research and Strategic Materials.
393 3/26/2019 5:55:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Russian takes a Brit production and a 1/3 POL/MIL
392 3/25/2019 6:39:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message I win the Agenda Segment again and as my agenda-winning bonus I will place the Pol-Mil 2/2 Issue on the table.

Round to Bob to pick his two issues for the conference.

Message from UK Churchill:
UK reveals Clement Atlee, a 5 that the UK Agenda bonus turns into a 6.

This roll is to see what Zhukov strength is.
390 3/23/2019 3:42:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message File 1006 with Frances Perkins unmasked sent. UK to unmask, roll for Zhukov and see if we have an agenda phase winner.
389 3/22/2019 3:50:00 PM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message File naming: correct we should reset the last two numbers.

Stray card on the board: apologies for this. It is part of my wrestling with drawing 7 separate cards and not clicking on the correct button. I've been playing The Great Game via file exchange and just draw the cards singly from the deck across to the hand row in Vassal and started doing the same with this Conference. Only the first one went to the intended slot. All the others misaligned, some ending up stacked on top of each other and that one must have fallen out onto the board. I do have 7 cards in my hand (if you look at my hand you might see they are not neatly in the right place). You might even need to hover over them to see the correct number. The card on the board is Francis Biddle, a 3 strength Attorney General, who fell out of the nest during my nightmare draw session. Can we please treat him as still in the deck and you have the knowledge that he won't be in my hand.
388 3/22/2019 3:28:00 PM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message I think Nick's analysis is right. The Pol-Mil issues are still important.
387 3/21/2019 1:36:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message I think the game is still wide open. Russia is only 5VP behind the USA and the UK is 4VP short of enough points to win by having more than the sum of USSR+USA VPs, given that it's more than 20VP ahead of the lowest score. Assuming Japan gets defeated, of course. So a lot depends on how many military VP the US gets this turn, which depends on how much supprt they can get, which really means the Pacific Theatre Leadership needs to be in play this turn. If the UK wins that then I have an interesting choice about where to put the support.

There are also a lot of points in clandestine networks and political alignment markers, and I think that's where my best shot at a win lies. I'm far enough ahead that if Japan is NOT defeated then I think it's my game. I'm not sure how things will fall out if Japan IS defeated, though. Russia needs to score points to try and get past the USA, but that might mean that I'm less than 20 VP ahead so I'd win. Of course, this will all depend on how the military stuff plays out, and we don't find that out until after we've done the Pol-Mil bits. Like I said, I'm finding this really interesting even though is looked a simple, more or less just "learn the mechanics" scenario - I'm really not sure exactly how best to play this turn.
386 3/21/2019 1:22:00 PM Turn 10 UK Churchill Message Here's how I see it:

With the points as they are now, if Japan is defeated USA wins and if Japan is not defeated UK wins. Japan will be defeated if the A-Bomb issue is chosen and the A-Bomb marker is advanced to the Trinity space. Any one of us can make that happen regardless of what the other two do.

The UK can now only score points from the A-Bomb track, Clandestine Networks and Political Alignment markers.

The USA can potentially score 8VP for Okinawa and 5VP for Kyushu by advancing Fronts. It can also score from the A-Bomb track, Clandestine Networks and Political Alignment markers.

The USSR can potentially score 8VP for Korea, but a Breakthrough would be required. It can also score 3VP by advancing the Manhattan spy ring on the A-Bomb track (requires USSR to win the A-Bomb issue) and finally from Clandestine Networks and Political Alignment markers.
385 3/21/2019 6:06:00 AM Turn 10 USSR Stalin Message Just so I'm clear in my own mind.

I can't win- All I can do is attempt to help one
side or the other by really trying to topple Japan.

I also can't do anything military-wise on anything
but the Japan front but having said that I have NO chance of making it to Japan or even Korea for my 8 points.

Also looks like nobody can actually make it to Japan as it's at least 2 spaces away but USA has chance for some points (8) by making it to Okinawa?

I will await answers to my above questions before
placing my starter card as some of my guys depend on what choices I make during the turn.
384 3/21/2019 3:09:00 AM Turn 10 USA Roosevelt Message OK USA cards drawn. Remember to click the draw 7 cards button. I didn't and drew individually. As a result they don't align properly in my 'hand'.

376 3/20/2019 4:22:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Yucata has just returned, but itís really, really slow at the moment. When I logged in it said there were 3 online, itís up to 306 now.

I certainly want to play this out. I was pleasantly surprised how what looked a bit like a ďgoing through the motionsĒ learning exercise at the start has turned into something that needs careful thought now.
375 3/20/2019 2:27:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Yes, let's press on. Even if the skewed end is in sight, we face some challenges. I'll tidy up and draw the final conference card tonight or tomorrow morning if nobody else does.

No life from Yucata?
374 3/18/2019 7:51:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message The VP totals look right to me.

I think Bob has it right. If Japan does not surrender then I'm far enough ahead to win the game. If Japan surrenders then I'm not far enough ahead at the moment. I can't now score points from Fronts, but there are 13 points available to the USA and 8 available to the USSR.

Japan will surrender if the A-Bomb marker advances to the Trinity space this turn and if the A-Bomb issue is chosen then any of us can make that happen by allocating production markers to it.

ALthough this is only the training scenario I think it's still giving us some interesting choices to make.
373 3/17/2019 9:12:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message The way I see it - USA has to have defeat of both Axis forces to win and British have to either prevent this from happening or keep the score 'as is' and defeat Japan.

Meanwhile both of you need to 'court' Russian help knowing right now I can't win either way.....
372 3/17/2019 9:10:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message 4.43 Global Hegemon, Axis Conditional Surrender: If one or
both Axis powers have not surrendered, then the player with the
most points subtracts 5 points, the player with the second most
subtracts 3 points, and the player with the fewest points adds 5
points to their respective totals.
(In case of a tie for most points, both players subtract 5 points and
the other player adds 5 points. If there is a tie for fewest points,
both players add 5VPs and the other player subtracts 5 VPs.)
After these adjustments, the player with the most VPs wins. If
the adjusted scores result in a tie for most points, then the final
tiebreaker rules (4.44) are used to determine the winner.

In this instance subtracting 5 from Britain and 3 from US and adding 3 to USSR would be:

British 42 - USA 25 - USSR 28 - British would still win but USSR would be in 2nd place.
371 3/17/2019 9:07:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message 4.42 Broken Alliance: If both Axis powers have surrendered
and the score differential between the highest and lowest scores
is more than 20 victory points, compare the score of the player
Churchill Rules 7
© 2015, 2016 GMT Games, LLC
with the highest score against the combined score of the other
two players.
If the score of the player in first place exceeds, not equals, the
combined score of the other two players, the player with the
highest score wins.
If the first place score does not exceed this combined score the
player with the second highest score wins. In case of a tie for
fewest points, the final tiebreaker rules below (4.44) is used to
determine the winner (between these two players only).
If there is a tie for highest score, use the final tiebreaker rules
below (4.44). Note that this may result in the player with the
lowest score winning the game.

If both Axis powers surrender Brits with 47 is not higher than combined 28 & 23 (51) so British would win so in this instance the American would win.


370 3/17/2019 9:04:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message USA Roosevelt: from 24 to 28
UK Churchill: from 29 to 47
USSR Stalin: from 23 to 23

4.41 Alliance Victory: If both Axis powers surrender and the
score differential between the players with the most points and
fewest points is 20 or fewer victory points, the player with the
most victory points wins.

I have 23 and British have 47 - Brit would NOT win in this instance outright. Going to 4.2
369 3/17/2019 7:37:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Looking at 4.42 and 4.43, if no other VPs were awarded at game end (and they would be) the UK is in a winning position if Japan does NOT surrender, but is too far ahead if we assume a Japanese surrender.

Please check my calculations.

365 3/17/2019 7:01:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message I'll tidy up the support markers and run through the VPs as I see them using the rulebook.
364 3/16/2019 8:29:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message The map looks ok to me.

The first paragraph of 7.8 says there will be no further Front movement on any Front Track in the European Theatre, no offensive support makers can be placed unless directed by the conference card, but that clandestine network and political alignment markers can still be placed or removed.

I note that the only way we can now beat Japan is with the A-Bomb because Japan is an amphibious space and you can't have a breakthrough where the second space is an amphibious one. So if we don't get the Bomb then the Global Hegemon victory conditions apply, see section 4.43. The tiebreaker in 4.44 is also worth a read and I think we need work out the current VP totals again.
363 3/16/2019 8:33:00 AM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message I was actually trying to end the game. My thought was that having cornered the market in Pol-Mil I could keep my lead even if USA got more points from fronts in the Pacific.

Unfortunately Paul took the Global issue and I didnít want to take a chance on him moving a pawn to the UN, otherwise Iíd have used Churchill to take the US production issue. I just didnít have anything spare to boost the A-Bomb roll and clearly Bob needs to work on his die-rolling:-)
362 3/16/2019 8:05:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message Map looks good as I see it.

So we just now have to defeat Japan - is there any
movement we need / can do in Europe next turn?
361 3/16/2019 7:55:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Germany surrenders and the Western Allies will get German tech markers. I have not distributed these as you had better check everything is correct to this point. Japan does not surrender as 7.82 b ONLY has not been met (Trinity one space short on the track).

File sent. Please check.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
Yes the Western Allies benefited from the Germans sending reserves east.

Soviets advance into Manchuria.

This roll is for Central Pacific where the OS and reserves cancel out, so success on 0-2 only. Remember a 10 is a 0.
