361 3/17/2019 8:18:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Thank you, Benioit. The games were instructional.

I believe that the Historical Japanese opening hand is quite powerful. If the Japanese player can draw one more big operation event to add to it they have a big jump on the allies. They can set up to at least isolate the DEI on the opening turn, as well as deploy against both Rangoon and the Vogelkop. I need a bit more practice with this opening hand to be really good at it. I see many of the very experienced players use it on South Seas HQ to deploy Kido Butai into Southeast East right away, then use the big carriers to escort armies on amphibious assaults.

My guess is that we will see more opening bids of 0 to play the Japanese to make the opponent bid 1 to get them so the allies would start with +9 PW.

Good luck going in you future games. Perhaps we will meet again. The next round starts in a couple of weeks.
360 3/17/2019 1:30:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Then it's over! Congrats. Your heavy investment in CBI paid off, I guess Kwai makes it even more attractive. Thank you.

I noticed on Chris's latest report that JP has won in 9 out 13 games using Historical Hand Option (ours did not). It will be interesting to see if trend continues.

If I understand the India status track rules, both Burma and India are at risk of surrender this turn.

352 3/16/2019 10:48:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Looking at the map, I believe there should be a Japanese control marker on Wake Island. Not that PoW will be a problem for you this turn since the Mandates should be recovered at the end of the turn.

Message from Japanese:
Hmm, actually 53 factors since there are two attacks here. That was the attack on Rabaul, which uses 43 hits to eliminate the naval units at Rabaul.

This roll is for the LRB attack on Truk.
2 factors, so needs a '9' to do damage.
