54 12/25/2018 12:30:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi George,

First Merry Christmas. Hope you have a great holiday.

2nd, a bit more rust I am afraid. When you play a card for the OC Offensive (like you just did for Kamikaze), as opposed to the EC Offensive (like your Col Tsugi play), there can be only 1 battle hex declared by the offensive player. Note that there *could* end up being more than 1 battle hex if Special Reaction kicks in, but otherwise, an OC play has at most 1 battle.

See rules 5.31, 7.24 (2nd para)
53 12/25/2018 12:21:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message > How do you get Vassal to show the radius option? That was nice.

52 12/24/2018 9:47:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #61: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
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.

48 12/22/2018 12:36:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi George,

I will help you shake the rust out... :-)

2 problems with the PBM:

- The card play for this operation (#19 Weather - Monsoon Rains), is a 2OC. This sets the range for Air/Naval units to PBM. 2*5 = 10 hexes for Naval, and 2 hops for air. So Davao is out of range from 4412 to PBM.

- Guam is an air-base only. Naval units may not base (i.e. end their move) at them.

Please advise... :-)

my best,
Mark

But good DRs partially overcame a poor plan. Forgot how tough Wake was
44 12/22/2018 1:19:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi George,

Kamikaze is a 'Reaction' card (the blue ones). Reaction cards can only be played as the 'Reaction' player. Since this was your turn, you were the Offensive player with your card, and I have the opportunity to play Reaction/Blue cards.

Please see 3rd paragraph of rule 4.22, and section 5.32. I am referencing the V3.0 (2015) rule book available through GMT living rules.

Since only the reaction player can play cards, I was safe in progressing the combat forward... :-)

It would be good to set the ground rules though. Normally I play that the 'Reaction' player checks the 'Offensive' players move, and if not valid, then reports it back for correction. If he starts rolling dice, then the reaction player should just take his lumps from the mistake. If the 'Reaction' player makes an error, and rolls dice, the Offensive player should ask for a redo of the reaction, and the dice should be re-rolled.

Basically, I suggest that if an error found by other player, all dice considered not rolled after that point. Sound OK?

Just so you are aware, I have been playing EotS fairly steady for 10+ years now, and although I am no expert/shark, I am very comfortable with the rules, and happy to help where ever I can. I hope that reads as humble as I mean it and not like I am a know-it-all. :-}

my best,
Mark
43 12/21/2018 11:50:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #61: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
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.

OC: 4 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
I had intended to play this at the start of the battle if you challenged me. Flipping the naval air as the Kamikaze. Is it too late? Do we need to reroll (not that I really want to alter the results, but . . .)

- Allies; net 2, .25x, 6.25, rounds up to 7 hits. NE.

- It was foolish of me to send the [CA N Orleans], as there was neither additional combat power, nor defensive value through hits (as already flipped).

- For my own 'reminder', I find it helpful to use the 'Activate' capability in VASSAL to mark the OP HQ and the units being activated, and then put down the battle markers. You may be fully aware of these things, and just choose not to use, which is fine. Just wanted to mention in case you are not.
- I will mark up this OP. The 'Activate' is on the pieces right-click menu, or using hot-key Ctrl-A or equivalent.

No Intel card played, so condition remains Surprise, and no reaction moves.

On to battles...
