294 2/20/2019 6:08:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Sorry for the delay again, I appear not to be as recovered as I thought. I took my father out on Monday and Tuesday, both trips meant round-trip drives of around 90 miles and itís flattened me. I hope to be back to something approaching normal tomorrow.
293 2/19/2019 8:04:00 AM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Sorry, I had planned to make my move last night but it turned into a long and busy day so I ran out of time. I should be able to make a move tonight.
292 2/19/2019 3:39:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Am away tonight (Tuesday). Usual warning about possibly not having internet.

UK to debate the last card?
291 2/17/2019 8:28:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message No debate from me
290 2/17/2019 12:31:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Play Harry Hopkins 5 to advance European Theatre Leadership to 2 on USA track as he has a -3 penalty for Truman being President.
289 2/17/2019 6:45:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message Manchuria / USSR declares war on Japan

I think earlier in a game (first 3-4 turns) that
chit is a negative for the Russians as it forces them
to divert resources ect from the Eastern Front - BUT
now with only 2 turns left it seems it is beneficial to
ALL 3 POWERS to try to 'help' the Russians move forward
or we all suffer the penalties of not defeating Japan
288 2/16/2019 3:09:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message I guess the Manchuria problem means that the Russians, at least, have to put some effort into advancing the front. At this stage it looks to me as though it could be difficult to get a front into Japan so if we want both Germany and Japan defeated we need to meet the conditions for the emperor to surrender, and that means getting the Soviet front into Manchuria this turn or next.
287 2/16/2019 3:04:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Sorry, I meant to say earlier that the UK will not debate the Soviet play. Back to Paul for the USAís next card.
286 2/16/2019 12:56:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message USA will not debate Soviet advance of A-Bomb issue. UK might?

Gulag is rolled when the next Soviet card is played.
285 2/16/2019 12:29:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message >Note that if the front fails to enter then the USSR declares war on Japan would have to be happen again next turn in order for the front to attempt to advance again

This can be a real pain for the USSR.
284 2/16/2019 9:38:00 AM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message If USSR declares war on Japan ends the conference in the centre of the table then the front can (must) try to enter Manchuria. The rules for advancing a front are in 7.7 - each front has a strength of 2, modified by +2 for each offensive support marker (naval support, I think, is only to ensure you can advance into amphibious spaces and doesnít add strength) and modified by -2 for each Axis reserve. Then roll a d10 and if you get equal or less than the modified strength the front successfully advances. If the modified strength is 10 or more then you have to check for breakthrough.

So if USSR does declare war this turn then you/we need to place offensive support markers if we want to increase the chance of entering Manchuria. Note that if the front fails to enter then the USSR declares war on Japan would have to be happen again next turn in order for the front to attempt to advance again (see 7.73 point 4).
283 2/16/2019 9:19:00 AM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Yes, if you as Russia win a Theatre Leadership issue then you get the two offensive/naval support markers and also decide whoís in command of the theatre (see 6.92 for details).
282 2/16/2019 6:35:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message I'll play the 1 point to push the A-bomb into Stalin's seat.

Do I roll for Gulag now or wait and see if you negate this card?
281 2/16/2019 6:31:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message >If USSR Declares War on Japan at the center of the table and the Far Eastern Front is at Nomohon, that front must attempt to enter Manchuria. Otherwise, it may not. Note: If play of a card would move this marker past the center of the table, the owner of the card may place the marker at the center of the table

Also at this point I don't have enough to enter Manchuria do I? I need the declare war marker but what else?
280 2/16/2019 6:28:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message First part got cut off - I was asking about Euro theater leader.
279 2/16/2019 6:28:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message >e winner decides who will assume leadership of the corresponding theater next turn. (e leader of a theater gets to place a free support/naval marker in that theater.) In addition, the winner of the issue (not the eventualleader of the theater) receives two o&ensive and/or naval support markers to place anywhere in the corresponding theater. If a power wins both of these issues on the same turn, it gets two more markers (for a total of six); these last two can be placed anywhere.

So what happens if STALIN wins this?
I get to decide who does what but I also get some supply markers?
278 2/16/2019 3:28:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message As my table talk and as a flagged (non-) play, I'll say that Truman will not be debating this if Stalin passes on his opportunity.

Bob to debate this or move on to his normal card play.
277 2/15/2019 6:07:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message I'm finally just about over the cold, with only occasional coughing fits remaining. I think (hope) that my father has avoided this one so life should now get a bit easier.

I'll play Sir Charles Portal, he's a 1 with +2 if the issue is on the US track, to move the Pol-Mil 1/3 from space 1 of the US track to space 2 of the UK track.

Now round to Bob to decide whether or not to debate my play.
276 2/12/2019 4:04:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message I'll pass. My last action was to debate the UK. I won't debate the USSR advance of the A-Bomb. I won't advance an issue (making use of the pass option). UK next when ready.
275 2/10/2019 1:27:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Churchill will not debate the Russian play (Iím out of turn order but this will help keep things moving, and anyway I suppose it counts as table talk - no $500 kibitzing penalty in this game)

Now waiting for Paul to debate and/or make a play.

Iíve got a rotten cold - aches, fever and chills as well, so Iíll be going to bed early and may not be able to make a move tonight as I wonít have access to Vassal. For extra, bonus fun I think my father is coming down with it too so the next few days are going to be busy.
274 2/10/2019 11:59:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message I'll use Pavel +1 to move the atomic marker one more space closer to Stalin's chair
273 2/10/2019 11:37:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message File 911 sent. I forgot to tidy up the card to the piles. When I scan the messages I sometimes forget who on earth I am as all the power names start with U.
272 2/10/2019 11:34:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Leo Crowley debates UK and moves 1/3 issue from UK space 1 to USA space 1.
271 2/9/2019 6:41:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message No debate
270 2/8/2019 6:14:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message That's confusing, sorry. The UK has advanced an issue, now the USSR has the option to debate it and if they don't then the USA has the option to debate it.
269 2/8/2019 6:10:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Next up is USSR then USA have the option to debate the UK play.
268 2/8/2019 5:37:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message Does US go next or do I go next?
267 2/8/2019 5:24:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message UK plays Lord Louis Mountbatten, a 1, to move the Pol-Mil 1/3 to space 1 on the UK track.

I've just noticed that the US Political Alignment marker that was placed in error didn't get removed so I'll update that on the map as well.
266 2/8/2019 7:43:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message USA passes having debated so the next card play to advance an issue is from the UK.
265 2/8/2019 7:41:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Morganthau debates Molotov to pull Global Issue back to Soviet 1 box. It is still potentially a Stalin issue.

File sent. Nick I am sending Bob files from the zoho address so am not copying him in on files I send you.
264 2/8/2019 7:35:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message >I thought the NEYT was for debate

Correct. Nyet is added when you counter a card play by debating. It's a boost of negativity.
263 2/8/2019 5:28:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message I thought the NEYT was for debate- I was just
playing a normal turn card
262 2/7/2019 8:19:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Is Molotov a printed 5 or does that include the Soviet ďnyetĒ characteristic that gives all your cards a +1? (i.e. should he 5 +1 forGlobal +1 for nyet = 7?)
261 2/7/2019 5:37:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message I'll play Molotov who gets a +1 (a 5 + 1) if used on
global marker - I'll move the Global marker
up to Russian 6
260 2/7/2019 5:19:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message UK chooses USSR declares war on Japan and the Global Issue. Iíve had a few demanding days with my father - heís developed another urinary infection and is more confused than usual - so Iíve gone to bed early and donít have access to Vassal. I think itís now round to Bob to advance an issue, please update the map for me so we can keep the game moving.
259 2/7/2019 5:56:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message I'm not near map but if that's the case of placing two
at a time I'll also place a US production marker
258 2/7/2019 4:11:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message You placed one. I thought we did 2 round the table.

I'm off seeing a friend I haven't seen for a decade. I might get on here late tonight, but tomorrow morning is more likely.
257 2/6/2019 6:26:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message US just placed 2 so do we reverse order here?
256 2/6/2019 2:14:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Truman chooses 1/3 Pol-Mil and European Theatre Leadership. The latter generates more offensive/naval markers whatever the outcome.
255 2/4/2019 9:15:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message My first choice is:
Strategic Materials

If at the center of the table, all powers receive an extra production marker from strategic materials. Otherwise, only the winner of the issue receives the extra production.

If we manage to keep in center we all get some
254 2/4/2019 3:15:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message The Imperial Staff +1 in the agenda segment strikes me as being the weakest of the national characteristics.
253 2/4/2019 8:24:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message I agree guy doesn't have a death roll.
I'll get to move tonight and update the map.
252 2/4/2019 8:11:00 AM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Sorry for the delay, yesterday was a very demanding day with my father and I went to bed early. I won't have access to Vassal until this evening, but I already know that I want to put the Pol-Mil 2/2 on the table as my agenda-winner's pick so if Bob can update the map for me then he can carry on and choose his agenda items.
251 2/4/2019 7:55:00 AM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message The rule actually goes on to say that the British +1 is the only special ability that can be used in the agenda segment, Paul just didn't copy that bit in. Now that I've read it I agree that Dill is not at risk this time.
250 2/4/2019 5:55:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message >UK Sir John Dill 4 + 1 = 5. The +1 is Imperial Staff modifier.

>No staff card special abilities or penalties are used during the agenda phase.

How can both these statements be true - if the bottom one applies why does Britain get the +1 (he would have won anyway but just asking)
249 2/3/2019 3:08:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message I think Dill lives to negotiate another day (in another timeline). IN 4.2 there is this:

>Each player simultaneously plays one staff card face-down and then reveals them. No staff card special abilities or penalties are used during the agenda phase.

I consider his possible death as a penalty.


248 2/3/2019 3:05:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Agenda phase resolution:

UK Sir John Dill 4 + 1 = 5. The +1 is Imperial Staff modifier.

USA Frank C Walker = 2

USSR Georgy Malenkov = 1

UK wins with 5. 5 - 1 (USSR card) = 4. UK next up to pick and place an issue on his 4 spot on the track.
247 2/3/2019 3:00:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message File sent from me with reveal. Oddly Bob's card was flipped the second time I opened it but not the first.
246 2/2/2019 7:06:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message I've just realised that the CBI front can't get to Formosa as Breakthroughs don't work on amphibious spaces.

Do we want to try and get Russia into the war against Japan? It looks like the A-Bomb will get developed but if there is no front in Japan then Russia has to have advanced into Manchuria for the Emperor to surrender.
245 2/2/2019 6:48:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message I've shuffled and drawn my cards. I've picked my card for the agenda segment and I've unmasked it on the map since you two have already played yours.

I've used Sir John Dill, he's a 4 with my +1 for the agenda segment making him a 5. He has a health issue - does playing him in the agenda segment mean I have to roll for his health to see if he survives? Not that it really matters in this game as we won't be reshuffling again, but I'd like to get it straight in my head for next time.
244 2/2/2019 1:58:00 PM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Nick to do his cards then. I liked the way the vassal module tidied up.
243 2/1/2019 3:04:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Stalin Message I'll get to map, look at my move tonight or tomorrow morning.
242 2/1/2019 2:25:00 PM Turn 9 UK Churchill Message Iíll wait for Bob to do his cards before I do mine (donít want to end up in a position where one of us has to redo things)
241 2/1/2019 10:17:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Have shuffled USA cards, drawn 7 and placed one on table for agenda phase. I think that's all from me. You each need to shuffle, draw and place after checking.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
Iwo Jima: placed at Okinawa!

Pol-Mil rolls occur if this roll is 1-3.
238 2/1/2019 10:04:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Message Am sending out file 901. It draws the conference card. I have discarded the cards we played. They are in a discard pile in your player hand area. When it comes to drawing new cards you will need to right click and reshuffle the discards first as this is an odd numbered conference.

Roosevelt is dead.

Next up is Iwo Jima and partisan Disputes from the card once I have sent out the file.
237 2/1/2019 9:49:00 AM Turn 9 USA Roosevelt Edit Current Conference / Version USA Roosevelt: from Tolstoy C Roosevelt stays in Washington to Yalta Argonaut C - Roosevelt dies, Truman replaces
UK Churchill: from Production for CBI offensive to Burma Road, mandatory CBI production
USSR Stalin: from Stalin hosts to Manhattan Project Spy Ring
236 2/1/2019 9:46:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt End Turn
235 2/1/2019 9:37:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Yes it is and really we ought to have advanced towards Berlin, but didn't.

I'll move this all forward next. Hopefully the Vassal module will do this fairly automatically.
234 1/31/2019 5:38:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message That's a tough climb to get to both surrenders in 2 turns.
233 1/31/2019 5:38:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I'm still concerned about the defeat of both powers
Japan especially as we only have 2 'turns' left and a long way to go into Japan - I guess
the other alternative is get the Atom bomb.

7.81 Germany
Germany surrenders when the Western and/or Eastern Fronts
enter the Germany space. When Germany surrenders, distribute
Nazi technology markers. (They are equivalent in game turns,
so it is not important who gets which):
ē If both Fronts enter Germany during the same conference give
all three players one of the German technology markers.
ē If only the Western Front enters Germany, give the US and
the UK player one German technology marker each.
ē If only the Eastern Front enters Germany, give the USSR two
German technology markers.
Italy surrenders when the Mediterranean Front enters the Southern
Italy space. Whether Italy has or has not surrendered has no
effect on when the game ends, and the game can end without
Italian surrender.
7.82 Japan
Japan surrenders if any Front enters the Japan space. Japan will
also surrender if the Allies meet all three of the Emperorís surrender
conditions.
Emperorís Surrender Conditions
a. Germany has surrendered in this conference or a previous
conference.
b. The US marker is in the Trinity space on the A-bomb track
and a Front has entered a B29 space.
c. The Soviet Far East Front is in or beyond the Manchuria
Front space.
If all three conditions are met, Japan surrenders. Otherwise, Japan
will only surrender due to a Front entering the country.
232 1/30/2019 6:05:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message That all seems ok to me - sorry for the delay, we both have something of a stomach upset which is making life a little unpleasant and Iíve gone to bed early as a result.

Itís pretty close at the moment, interesting that I now feel the need to stay in front but not do *too* well. I also hadnít appreciated how many points came from controlling countries rather than the military side of things.
231 1/30/2019 5:39:00 PM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message Are we ready for the next conference?
230 1/30/2019 9:04:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Edit VPs USA Roosevelt: from 0 to 24
UK Churchill: from 0 to 29
USSR Stalin: from 0 to 23
229 1/30/2019 7:04:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message I make that UK 29, USA 24, USSR 23.

Sending a file. Please check Nick.
228 1/30/2019 7:02:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Then T: USA gets 2VP for Iwo Jima.

AA USSR 3 for lack of completion of Trinity.
227 1/30/2019 6:54:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Europe and Pacific. These apply at game end with the best version of something counting.

Down to S is correct except that C and SW Pacific are only 1 space apart so no UK/USSR 5VP awards.


226 1/30/2019 6:45:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message VP schedule A-G, agreed.
225 1/30/2019 6:29:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message I'll check through shortly.
224 1/30/2019 6:05:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message So end of this turn the current scores based on what I just did are:

Russian - 28
Britain - 32
USA - 22

There are 3 conditional segments that determine the winner based on Axis surrenders (or not) and then spread / variance of scores between us high/low.

Currently we are NOT at variance of 15 point difference but we have 2 conferences to go so will need to watch the scores closely.

Well, look at what I did and see if it makes sense.
If so, we can chart the scores then start on turn 2.

I do agree we might want to see how to defeat the Axis as it seems pretty tough
223 1/30/2019 5:58:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message 3 VP for the USSR if the US does not have the A-Bomb (US
has not reached the Trinity space on the A-Bomb track

Russia gets 3 point for this one
222 1/30/2019 5:57:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message 5 VP for UK and USSR if the Central or SW Pacific is more than one space further away from Japan than the other (US Inter-service Rivalry)

Britain and USSR get 5 points for this one too
221 1/30/2019 5:55:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message 3 VP for the UK and the USSR if the SW Pacific Front has not entered the Philippine space during the game (i.e., MacArthur has not returned)

Britain and USSR get this one 3 points each
220 1/30/2019 5:54:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message This next group I'm not sure if it applies EVERY TURN
but since we don't have ANY score I'll apply it to this turn.

2 VP for the UK if Front in Central Italy - YES

2 VP for the USSR and the US/UK each if they fail to reach Germany, but reach Prussia or the Rhineland respectively

- all of us get 2 points each
219 1/30/2019 5:51:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message 2 VP for UK per colony space with no Clandestine Network
or Political Alignment marker

This one and Axis surrender do not apply this turn
218 1/30/2019 5:49:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message 5 VP per Global Issue on your advantage position on the
track
D. 3 VP per conference victory marker won by US/UK
E. 5 VP per conference victory marker won by USSR

British get 5 for Global issue and then 3 for conf. win for total of 8
217 1/30/2019 5:48:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message 1 VP per country space without a Political Alignment marker where you have a Clandestine Network - the SMALL markers

Russia - 3 = 3
Britain - 2 = 2
USA - 2 = 2


216 1/30/2019 5:46:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I'll take first stab at it:

A. 3 VP per country or colony space with your Political
Alignment marker - the big markers

Russia - 4 = 12
Britain - 4 = 12
USA - 6 = 18



215 1/30/2019 5:41:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message what's happening here - we are just ready to do the scoring right?
214 1/28/2019 2:54:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message Everything looks ok to me.

I found it helpful to run through the military segment part of the Stuka Joe video again while reading the rules. It helped me make sense of it but I was also surprised at the difficulty of advancing. I guess weíre either going to have to agree some priorities or read up on the victory conditions for if we fail to defeat both Germany and Japan.
213 1/27/2019 4:16:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Am not on machine with Vassal so bear that in mind.

>Why did the naval unit near Burma not go away if all the other naval units involved in other combats did?

The IJN took one out. Other than that they stayed in place.

>Why did we move up 2 spaces out of Burma entry space instead of just 1?

It was a big breakthrough due to the number of unopposed offensive support markers.

>Why in Philippines does the Japanese marker and the US Naval marker remain in the space?

There shouldn't be a Japanese one. Might not have returned it. Any US ones from the start of the theatre stay.

Offensive support markers last a conference. Naval markers are persistent.

>When do we calculate the scores? - I thought we talked about doing a 'count' every turn before going on to next one to make sure one of us is not running away with it.

Now. Nick needs to check the front advances and then we can tally the probably score (using the values in the revised rules not the Vassal module card).

Then we tidy up as we move to conference 9. I think the Vassal module will do a lot of that.
212 1/26/2019 3:11:00 PM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message WOW, advancing on the map is very hard - especially in Europe seems like massive forces need to happen to go anywhere
211 1/26/2019 3:09:00 PM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message a few questions:

Why did the naval unit near Burma not go away if all the other naval units involved in other combats did?

Why did we move up 2 spaces out of Burma entry space instead of just 1?

Why in Philippines does the Japanese marker and the US Naval marker remain in the space?

When do we calculate the scores? - I thought we talked about doing a 'count' every turn before going on to next one to make sure one of us is not running away with it.
210 1/26/2019 1:35:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Fronts file sent.
209 1/26/2019 1:33:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message That ends the conference (game turn) as in the post mortem phase we check that we don't have a double surrender. Before moving on to the next conference in ACTS and Vassal please check that my roll consequences have been done properly.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
South West Pacific. This roll is to see if the Japanese naval reserve is eliminated on a 1-4 on a d6.

The IJN takes out a blue naval support marker. As this reduces the naval support to 2 there is no d10 roll to advance to Philippines as that is an amphibious space and 3NS at least are required in theatre.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
Nothing happens in the Far East. The Japanese armies bring the modified strength below zero (and there is a war declaration threshold).

In the Central Pacific +4 from the OS markers and -2 for the Japanese reserve means the modified strength is 4. This roll is for the advance to Iwo Jima and will succeed on a roll of 1-4.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
Turning to the Pacific and the CBI. 5 offensive support markers face no additional Japanese forces so that's a +10. This roll isn't necessary as the modified roll will automatically take this front into breakthrough and advance it to Kra Isthmus.

Message from USA Roosevelt:
Front advance stage. This is a mechanical process with dice rolls against a success threshold. Face to face we let the player with the most 'investment' in a front do the roll, but that is just for the atmosphere. The roll needs to be less than or equal to a front's strength and a naval marker threshold might be necessary too. Front strengths start at 2 and are +/- 2 modified by axis armies. I'll do the IJN roll when I get to SW Pacific as that should have just been done.

This roll is for the Western Theatre to enter West Germany. The markers and cubes cancel out so the advance will only happen on a 1 or 2.
202 1/26/2019 12:56:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message So far as the armies go, you are placing small cubes that counteract the modifiers to the fronts advancing that the offensive support markers provide. There's also some naval contest possibly happening. As we are in the late war, the German fleet is no more (your War At Sea game has played out).

OK, I'll move on through the next stages.
201 1/26/2019 8:02:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I've read the German (and Japan) placement and saw what you did in Germany but (for some reason) can't get my head around this yet....sorry.
200 1/26/2019 7:55:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Back having played Successors (the old AH version). I'll move this along later if nobody else has.
199 1/24/2019 5:45:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Malaya one doesn't get placed then as I can't see anywhere for it to go where I have a CN.

I'm heading off to play Successors (or this if there are only 3 of us) and won't be on here until Friday. Please move the game along by doing the Japan placement etc.
198 1/23/2019 6:13:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message I agree that the IJN placement required by the conference card means that the placement in priority 4 doesnít happen because only 1 of the IJN blocks is used in a turn (see the play note in priority 5) and the battle of Leyte Gulf also happens without a die roll. (And thatís how itís handled in the Stuka Joe video I linked when we started).
197 1/23/2019 8:42:00 AM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message Sorry, but the global marker being on Colonialism prevents the USA placing a political alignment marker in Malaya.
196 1/23/2019 5:57:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Japan has 3 army and 1 naval marker in the Japan box.

Pacific priority 2 puts two of these in Manchuria.

Pacific priority 3 tiebreak means that Iwo Jima gets the 3rd cube.

Then comes Pacific 4 and 5 but the conference card has already placed a Japanese naval block in Philippines as a Leyte Gulf sortie. When we played FTF we thought the card superseded steps 4 and 5 and didnít roll / place another block. Thoughts?

195 1/23/2019 5:57:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Two west, 3 east.
