Going to make an intel roll here, as a successful reaction would allow me to activate air units which could PBM. I will assume you used the card for OPs, not the event, to reduce the chance of a successful reaction.

353 1/20/2019 2:11:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message The jig is up. All allied ground units in the CBI have been wiped out. My one chance to recover a PW is now ended. If the Emperor resigns, the game is over.

So time for the allies to turn their attention to other areas. In these games you have to get used to the fact that the law of averages does not always work out in the short run and these short runs of extreme results (sometimes referred to as 'luck') happen.

Allied PBM is done.

313 1/17/2019 3:13:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Yowzer! I mistakenly believed that ISR delayed all the reinforcements, but I re-read the rule and see that only army units are delayed. That is good news for the US, as I had plans for those ships.

Additional reinforcements!
CV Essex and CVL Belleau Woods to Cairns
CV Bunker Hill, CVL Cowpens and 3M xx to Guadalcanal

OK, remove the Reserve Corps from Manila.

I agree that SW Pac is in supply at the onset of the Reinf phase but it becomes OOS at the end once I bring my air units in play, right?

302 1/16/2019 10:11:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Allied Turn 6 R&R
Notes: One of the reduced corps in Manila should have been removed as a result of you attack. I flipped the full strength one and left it up to you to determine which of them to remove for the last 12 hits. This is important because it opens up Manila for my reinforcement corps. Since the allies place reinforcements first, SW PAC HQ is in supply during the allied reinforcement phase.

Allied reinforcements are delayed due to ISR, but there is no divert to Europe die roll since the WiE level is 0.

Allied Reinforcements:
XXIV corps to Manila
SEAC AF LRB to Trincomalee
BB Mass and CVL San Jacinto to Guadalcanal

Allied replacements:
2 Ground - British 15xxx to Calcutta

301 1/15/2019 9:37:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message No rush, Tom. Work was kinda getting in the way today anyway.

Yes, I'm still wondering how the hell that happened. I was about to find another window to jump from then it this raid on Manila caused you to use a card to bug out while allowing my BB and CV to base near enough to Attu to interfere.

Then ISR got in the way, card sequencing became tricky and I got lucky to claim DEI.

I may still lose, actually, I lost too many air steps for comfort, I think that if you avoid PW defeat you will win but at least I don't feel humiliated like with the first game.

How did WWM go? Continuation of previous session?

G'night
300 1/15/2019 9:23:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Will get to my R&R tomorrow. With the possible loss of the Philippines for another -1 US PW I cannot afford to miss the PoW requirement again.

I believe one of the ground units in Manila should have been eliminated in your attack last turn. I flipped the full strength corps and left it to you to determine which unit you would eliminate.

279 1/14/2019 12:55:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I do not believe my ground units lose a step, as they simply are denied the AA due to the loss of the air/naval battle. The only time they lose a step is if an enemy naval units ends the reaction move in their hex and there is no friendly naval unit stacked with them.

Sorry, I guess I thought it was 'hump' day. So many rules to this game!

Let's get this out of the FOQ.

261 1/13/2019 10:05:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message This is the first hand I have had where I don't know to proceed. I need to recover 4 enemy controlled bases to make the PoW requirement and I need to drive the Japanese out of Attu to prevent the loss of a PW point there.

I have already messed up by moving 1MAW to Aitape where it is OOS. I planned on moving it to Madang, which is the limit of S. PAC command range. I have no idea how to recover that. I am making too many of these little oversights and need to slow down my play and carefully consider my plans for the turn.

Move the China marker one box to the right toward the Stable Front box, unless this would put the China marker in the Stable Front box, in which case no effect.
