274 1/18/2019 10:36:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Actually if I may I'd like to change the Replacements. Instead of flipping 33Army at Saipan I need to flip the 25Army at Rabaul. I have too many spots to protect. So Replacements would go to 25 and 27 Armies (Rabaul and Attu/Kiska). [33Army] at Saipan.
273 1/18/2019 9:15:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Change Japanese Divisions Available in China From 8 to 6

8AD to Admiralty Islands (3820)

For Replacements I will take 2 from China
Flip 27 Army at Attu/Kiska
Flip 33 Army at Siapan

Your sub roll next. Then cards. If the subs miss you go first. If they hit I have the option to use the FO for going first.

257 1/17/2019 6:07:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message I am not playing well so I can't really complain that the die isn't helping me. But I would have had a chance to contest this one, save the air unit, and prevent reinforcements from going into Kavieng. Instead 24AF is auto dead and I can't move anyone. Back to you for post battle movement. That will complete the Ops Phase and we can move on to the Political Phase.

250 1/16/2019 1:50:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Future Offensive Message from Japanese:
OK I will probably try to do a short summary of unit locations at the end of the turn to make sure about who is where.

I am playing my last card into the FO box so that I'll have on for next turn. Back to you.
249 1/16/2019 1:44:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Sorry for the confusion - original intent for PBM was to have the entire force remain in Kwaijalien except for the (Wasp) which returned to 5808 (Hawaii) and both units of the 11th AF which returned to Nauru where they would be based with the unactivated 10th LRB.

Problem with this move is that it would lead to unacceptable overstacking in Kwajalien, so PBM was revised as follows:

Everyone returns from whence they came. Only exception to this is the two unit of the 11th AF, which remain on Kwajalien.

Back to you for last round of the turn!


248 1/16/2019 12:12:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message That is a little confusing.
First remember that none of the air units were ever at Kwajalein. They were either at Nauru or Tarawa. They can move to Kwajalein during Post Battle Movement.

Sounds like you are changing the positions. Now all boats except [New Orleans] are at Espiritu Santo and all planes except both 11AF units are also at ES. No air left at Tarawa and 10AF LRB which was not activated is still at Nauru.
247 1/16/2019 12:44:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Left them in Kwajalein but forgot about stacking. Will leave 11 AF TAC and LRB in Kwajalein, (New Orleans) returns to Pearl, rest of fleet and LRB's return to Espiritu Santu.
246 1/15/2019 11:21:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Correct, 1 card no FO yet.
I assume you want [Wasp] at 5808, there is no Hornet.
OK with 11AF and 10AF LRB at Nauru but I am confused about the final location of the other air units. 13AF LRB, 5AF LRB and 11AF LRB?
245 1/15/2019 10:33:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Just to confirm you have 1 card left and no FO - I have 1 card left and a FO as well.
244 1/15/2019 10:27:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Fleet will remain at Kwaijalien except for (Hornet) which will return to Pearl and 11th AF 10-10-2 which will go to Nauru (10th AF LRB is based there as well.)
243 1/15/2019 2:43:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Draw Extra Strategy card Message from Japanese:
Second card draw for JP.

Also, I just noticed that I again played a card wrong. Back on the first play of this turn somehow I managed to return card #44 (Tokyo Express) to the deck and not play is as the event. What this means is that #44 could jump into my hand again. I see no easy way to fix that other than announce it and discard it if it shows up before a reshuffle. Sorry for the error.
242 1/15/2019 2:35:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Post Battle moves as follows:
[2AD] back to Truk
[24AF] emergency move to Namu (4716)
[Shokaku] to Osaka (3507)
[Nagato] to Ominato (3705)
[Kongo] to Wewak (3720)
[Hiei] to Saipan/Tinian (3813)

I will draw my replacement card next. Back to you for your PBM.

240 1/14/2019 11:11:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Change War in Europe value From -1 to 0
239 1/14/2019 2:44:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Also the Wake garrison unit is just eliminated by the intrinsic 12-12 ground unit at Sasebo.

238 1/14/2019 2:40:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message For my 49 hits I flip all your carriers and the BB Miss. Your damage can be distributed. when ever you wish it won't change anything. I needed to win the air naval battle which I obviously did not.

Your landings are automatic and my 4SN Brigade is eliminated. I can't do PBM until I know who survives.

5) BB Hiei from Eniwetok to Kwajalein.

I show you with 90 attack factors. I have 98. I only have 3 air units so I can only hit your BBs and any other 3 units. You can hit everything of mine.
234 1/14/2019 2:25:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Future Offensive Message from Japanese:
Bad play on my part leads to a tough decision. I think there is a reasonable chance for me to win this (at a cost that I probably can't afford) so I'm going for all the marbles. If this is an epic fail it will make the rest of this game very painful for the poor JP.

South Seas HQ will send 5 more units;
1) BB Nagato from Hollandia to Kwajalein
2) BB Kongo from Wewak to Kwajalein
3) CV Shokaku from Rabaul to 4515
4) 2AD from Truk to Namu (4716)

Marine Brigade on Wake to Sasebo for first activation (from Wake move 1 hex northwest, 4 SW, 8 NW, 2 north for 15)

X Corps, damaged CA New Orleans from Honolulu to Kwajalein. (This plus Wake brigade makes 3 activations)

OC: 4 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
This was not the plan I had when I took this card but it appears the universe has another path I am supposed to follow. So Tsuji and South Seas HQ for 3 units (not using the rest); 28 Army, 1SN Brigade and SS Brigade.

1) 28 Army from 2813 attack Manila. This time I get the +4 no matter what so even another roll of zero won't save your boys.
2) 1SN + 1 ASP (second used of 6) from Aitape to Kusaie (4517)
3) SS Brigade from Madang (3721) strat move to Saipan/Tinian (3813).

No die rolls are needed but you can play an Intel card if you want to get a card draw. So back to you for your next card.

I need that to be your attack roll. My decision here is to hope for the 30% chance that you will only get 10 hits on 25% effective. No units are coming to help. This is your attack roll no need for me since I can't hit anything with a ground unit. The most you can do is flip the army.

Message from Japanese:
Normally I would wait for your post battle moves before playing but in this case it doesn't matter. I am using this as OPs on South HQ for 3 activations to attack Singapore. The only HQ in range is SW Pac and they couldn't possibly send anyone to interfere. So make sure to do your return moves before playing your next card. If you want to play an Intel card (just to get a card draw) you can but it won't change the battle situation.

15 Army from Kuantan to Biak (3319)
CVL Zuiho from Batavia to Singapore
2SN Brigade from 2620 strat move to Biak (3319).


So it will be +2DRM for me meaning again I only fail on a roll of zero. It couldn't possibly happen twice (well actually there is a 10% chance just like every time but I think I am due for something better).

Zuiho returns to Batavia in Post Battle Movement.
