764 3/25/2019 1:46:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Much closer than i thought I would get. Ground forces much more vulnerable once navy/air are dealt with. Biggest enemy for allies appears to be time/activations and setting stage for final act early enough. And taking all the resource hexes along the way... ;0
mahalo. good hunting in your next foray. I'm torn over who to bid for!
763 3/25/2019 1:41:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Kure falls with one step loss for the Allies.
Japan survives only by holding hex 3606.

Well, yes, very enlightening game. I learned a lot. I will probably replay most of it during the next weeks to learn some more. We both made of plenty of small mistakes that we both will hopefully avoid in our next games. Good luck for you!

Frank

PS: I will mail the moderator the result of "Japan survives"

I guess using the LRBs is just to give the Army the last shots, but rulewise you would not be allowed to use the 21BC since u rolled for it in strat warfare. Shall I just roll anyway or do you want to use other units?
755 3/24/2019 6:45:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #33: 2 / Quadrant Conference: Burma Offensive
Activate: Any HQ. Logistic Value: 3 Conditions: Only air and ground units may be activated. Bonus: This event ends a US inter-service rivalry. Flip the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. In addition, the Allies may immediately construct the Jarhat Trans Route for no cost. If Jarhat already constructed the either Ledo or Imphal can be constructed.

746 3/24/2019 2:16:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #79: 3 / Soviets Invade Manchuria
Manchuria: If Tojo has resigned, then this card MUST be played as an event, otherwise it can only be played as an OC. If played as the event the Japanese permanently lose two Resource Hexes (3302 and 3303). Place a Soviet Flag in each hex to denote Allied control that counts for Progress of the War. Bonus: If China has not surrendered, move the China marker two boxes toward or into the Stable Front box.. RESHUFFLE: If played as an OC or discarded, place this card back in the deck and reshuffle the deck at the end of the game turn. If played as the event, permanently remove this card from the deck and do NOT reshuffle. This card may not be played as a Future Offensive.

OC: 3 EC: 0

Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

713 3/21/2019 2:14:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message actually the rules cover it:
"If a Special Event is discarded due to the play of another event and
the criteria for the event are fulfilled, the Special Event occurs the
instant the card is discarded."
So if you had drawn Tojo, it would still have been activated.
712 3/21/2019 2:06:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message I am pretty sure even Halsey can not discard Tojo, but I will ask in the forums how that works.
711 3/20/2019 7:59:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Thanks FR. Appreciate your willingness to continue play. I only drew 2 strong events and one of those includes a discard by you which I would have been loathe to play with Tojo in your hand. This will allow us to see what an invasion feels like. (Discount my earlier attempt---that's more the Dieppe of the Far East). With six hexes to clear its going to be uphill. But I need to start working on those calculations. Should be ready to begin shortly. mahalo.
710 3/20/2019 2:22:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message The card fates have not smiled upon you. I don't hold Tojo and I accept your concession since I feel that you can win the invasion only with die luck. Thank you for a very nice game so far! For me it has been a roller coaster ride. Felt like a very likley winner in turn 2, so-so at the end of turn 4, a loser in turn 8, a winner again after your landing attempt in turn 9, then a loser again at the end of turn 10 after your clever PI campaign and a winner again at the end of turn 11.
Sadly a rule misunderstanding decided the game. Simply killing every unit in sight in turn 11 would probably have allowed you to invade successfully.

Of course, we continue! I am a gamer and this is a very interesting endgame puzzle. Your strategic weakness has been and still is CPAC usability and this turn with 3 of the 6 offensives in your deck being CPAC off. it could really hurt you. Depending on your cards, it might be worthwhile to spend one of your ASPs on taking Ulithi.

Well, Japan is ready and awaits the onslought!


709 3/19/2019 6:28:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message I'm willing to concede if you don't hold Tojo, but would like to continue so I can practice the homeland invasion if your ameniable.

Otherwise I'll presume the card-fates have smiled upon me and eschew the direct assault on the emperor and go for the A-Bomb.

695 3/17/2019 4:07:00 PM Jan-Apr 1945 Japanese Message It depends on which victory condition you are talking about:
- For the isolation condition (13.93) the Allies have to cut the supply line between Japan and the resources. The difficulty is: ... for three consecutive turns.
- For the strategic bombing victory (16.1) supply lines do not matter. The Allies have to take control of all resource hexes except for one.

So in our case: To win u have to either take Honshu, or take all resources hexes except one and fulfill the other criteria in 16.1.

Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit.

- a/n combat still happens, even if one side loses all a/n units before battle, as it is still a battle hex.
- Let's redo the story:
- You land moved your 2 inf units and the CV to Taihoku, creating a battle hex there (since the 12AD was there)
- I get to react, move three more air units into the fight, then play the Kamikaze card, killing the CV and 12AD.
- Since I have air units in the battle, a/n battle happens. I don't hit enough to damage ur ground units, so a null result.
- my PBM (2 legs) goes to Sasebo and Osaka
I pass
