358 2/15/2019 10:02:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Steve

Thanks for the game. It is a steep learning curve so no worries there. My lack of responsiveness was due to a lot of work travel that was somewhat unexpected.

I agree that at this point the game has bogged down and likely would have ended next turn with India falling.

357 2/9/2019 4:06:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Hi Jay, at this point I don't think I can do anything even remotely useful. So well done and good luck in your next game. Thank you for putting up with all of my mistakes.

If the Japanese control hexes 2108 and 2109, they become Trans Routes for the remainder of the game and any Japanese HQ that can trace a continuous Trans Routes via the Kwai RR to Rangoon has +1 added to its efficiency rating if any units are activated in Burma or Northern India. Place the Bridge Over the River Kwai marker near this location as a reminder. Remove from play if used as an event.

This battle, you had 2 air units and I had 3 air units plus one full strength surface unit in the battle hex.

You can flip the surfance unit in the battle hex and 2 of the 3 air units. The third can't be hit and since it is full strength, you can't eliminate any of the reduced surface units in the battle hex itself.

You needed a chain of air units to open up a supply line. If you would have left the CVL at Trincomalee, I would have tried to bring in another BB. Usually you want to garrison HQ units unless they aren't critical.

Message from Allies:
Was that a mistake on my part putting San Jacinto in Madras or should I have put it in Trincomalee? If it had been there would it have prevented you from attacking the Maldives? Or just put it off for an extra turn?
