567 9/15/2021 8:43:00 AM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message From Henry:
have a D5
Days that I can make a live session at 2100 CET
September – 18th / 29th
October – 6th / 20th / 23rd/27th

Good !
You can make your move and then we will go on-line to resolve it, and make follow-on moves. Maybe in an hour or two we can almost finish the whole turn.

I can make Sept 29th
Oct 6th
Oct 27th
at 2100 Central Europe Time. (1300 Mountain time... but we have the effect of Daylight Savings time change to work through: it is usually different in Europe and the US for a couple of weeks in October...)
566 9/14/2021 9:10:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message Great idea for having a live session.
197_CnC-USA – Spring


I have a D5

Days that I can make a live session at 2100 CET

September – 18th / 29th

October – 6th / 20th / 23rd/27th

565 9/8/2021 7:43:00 PM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message My card is a "J5".
So, I go before the Soviets.

It is up to Henry (US) to identify his card, and whether he goes before me, or after the Soviets.

It was very much a pleasure to meet you, Barry, at CSW. I hope we end up playing many more games in the future.

For this game, I think we could finish it up with 1 (at most 2) playing sessions if we go "live". Since you both already do "live Vassal", there must be some time that works. I am back in Colorado "permanently", so it is 8 hours time difference to Switzerland, and will be a bit more difficult than the 6 hours between you two. I will be retired after 17th September, so at that point, almost ANY time will work for me. Feel free to propose a day and time that works for both of you. (As the 17th is still a week away, we could proceed now with the move; and then roll the dice "live".)
564 9/7/2021 7:19:00 PM Turn 9 SOVIET Message Sovs play a K card for the Spring.

Had the pleasure of meeting Jim in person at the CSWExpo last week; what an honor to place a face with a name and have a bit of a chin wag!
563 9/1/2021 12:31:00 PM Turn 9 SOVIET Message Out of pocket through Labor Day, will make a play then. Am at a convention; I've heard that Jim is here as well. really do need to find him and have a meet before this show is over
562 8/31/2021 4:25:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message I think it is for the SOVs to play a card for Spring or not.
561 8/13/2021 10:27:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message I have played a card on 08th but forgot to post on ACTs.

Will be on a Staycation for the next 10 days so my game turnaround is likely to suffer until the week beginning 23 August.
560 8/3/2021 10:28:00 AM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message I'm back.

I discarded a card to bring my hand-size down.

Assuming you all were going to pass; I played a Spring Card.

US and Soviets to play Spring cards (or not).
559 7/22/2021 7:33:00 AM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message Hi, I'm still in the midst of a huge retirement/move/vacation and my kids visiting in Europe and going to see my son in Austria...

I will hopefully be "done" and back to this game by very early August.

Thank you Henry for the invitation for some live sessions, but as you can tell... I have 0 spare time right now.

I would still like to play a card for this turn, so I think the game is waiting for me to do so.
558 7/21/2021 3:43:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message Not sure where we are with C & C. SOVs are down to handsize. US has no cards to play to counter SOV hegemony. If the Japs have no cards to play I guess we are onto our Season moves. Over to the Japs for cardplay decision.
557 7/5/2021 6:20:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message Jim didn't realise you were in Switzerland - I assumed you were back in the States during the C19 panic. Hope everything is OK. Purpose of post is to ask if either of you would be interested in playing a live session of Fitna - https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/253696/fitna-global-war-middle-east.
I have been playing live with 2 US opponents and we had a blast. Looking for more players who are interested. The game is a very thought provoking representation of tensions in the Middle East and, once you get used to the quirks, plays quite quickly. A bit too interactive for easy PBEM play.
556 6/30/2021 2:59:00 PM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message I just moved out of my last-5-years apartment here in Switzerland, and will be traveling for a couple of weeks. But, please remind me if it looks like I forgot !
555 6/30/2021 9:33:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message Nothing I can do to slow down the Soviet steamroller. No card play from US
554 6/23/2021 7:51:00 PM Turn 9 SOVIET Message That should do it - Sovs down to 5 cards in hand now with a hand size of 6
553 6/15/2021 3:56:00 PM Turn 9 SOVIET Message I can be certainly
552 6/15/2021 3:38:00 PM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message Soviet is up for a number of successive card plays... right ?
551 6/10/2021 4:00:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message I will be away from my PC from Friday for a week. My wife has 3 weeks leave. We will have 1 week away and 2 weeks doing day trips from Bern so my gaming time will be much reduced. Normal service should be possible week beginning 28 June.
550 6/3/2021 5:35:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message I pass also HS8 Cards 5
549 6/2/2021 2:21:00 AM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message Japan passes

Japan has 1 card more than Hand Size. So, I will likely pass until the Soviets get down to about the same.
548 6/1/2021 6:58:00 PM Turn 9 SOVIET Message To Japan for play

16 Cards, Hand size 6
547 5/31/2021 4:38:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message 191_CnC-US-1944 – PROD – Sov next
OK I have 9 PROD plus the following 1944: a US Fleet, and Carrier appear in the US. these units arrive at 2 CV. one US Infantry and one AF cadre. I will take 6 builds and 3 cards. Over to the SOVs

546 5/28/2021 9:36:00 AM Turn 9 SOVIET Message My count feels light, but alas lines up with your assessment of resources and population.
545 5/28/2021 9:18:00 AM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message I agree with your numbers, thanks !

I have made a short updated file (190) with the changes.

(I already did my build, so it is to the US.)
544 5/27/2021 6:14:00 AM Turn 9 USA Message Apologies for the delay. I have updated the spreadsheet including Jim's comments. I have checked each player's holdings and find discrepancies between the spreadsheet and the tally shown on the gameboard. I make the situation as follows:
JAP - RES 18/ POP 15
USA - RES 9/ POP 10
SOV - RES 8/ POP 10 - agrees with board

before I make my PROD grateful if someone could check my figures.
543 5/23/2021 4:39:00 PM Turn 9 JAPANESE Message OK, I did my builds.
Over to the US for Production

538 5/7/2021 5:24:00 AM Turn 8 USA Message I have tidied up the board after this disastrous year. I have no Winter cards. Have posted an update to the Resources spreadsheet which shows the consequences of a failed strategy. Unless the SOVs do something surprising the Japs have the game in the bag. Am taking a short break away - so will not have access to my PC. Will not be able to make any moves before Wednesday 12 May at the earliest.
537 5/1/2021 8:11:00 AM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message The Jap PT boats got 1 hit on your fleet. (I don't think you want to lose the carrier.)

Your fleet needs to re-base, and the only available spots are Singapore or Malacca.

Then it will be the end of the Fall.

I will reduce my Infantry in New Delhi by 1, to strength 1. Barely holding New Delhi.

I don't think you have any attrition left, as Forts and ANS units don't suffer attrition when OoS. (They can't rebuild, though.)

Then we need to triple-check the Resources, as they are certainly a bit changed from before...

The Jap infantry takes 1 loss.

There are 5 shots left, so they return fire at 5N1.

(I am not sure what they shoot at the Carriers with !!! but I guess it is AA fire against the airplanes. Or, maybe they carried some PT boats over the mountains to Burma.)

Message from USA:
186_CnC_US_1943_Fall2

Sorry for the confusion – the main US attack is on your units in Burma- the CW AC unit remains in the Andaman Sea

Now for the massacre of the sub - I have First Fire and Long Lance which means I fire 4N4
- Is Long Lance effective against a sub? – anyway 4d6

532 4/29/2021 5:00:00 AM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message I feel blind. I only see the Philippine Sea combat.
Where is the other.

I have revealed the Phil Sea unit: a 4-strength Fleet, in file 185.

You may go ahead and roll it.
531 4/28/2021 7:41:00 AM Turn 8 USA Message I have made a Fall move. Over to Jap to reconcile 2 combats. The unit moved into the Phillipine Sea is a 1 strength sub.
530 4/25/2021 12:30:00 PM Turn 8 SOVIET Message Gosh, that was convoluted - the things designers love to sort out.

No Soviet fall card play
529 4/21/2021 5:37:00 AM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message I asked Craig about the supply situation with the fall of New Delhi. He pointed out a number of things:

1) He decided against allowing supply tracing from the west (Delhi, UK, etc) because it would be messy, and holding New Delhi needs to be important

2) My carrier that attacked Burma can NOT retreat to the Andaman Sea, unless it didn't fire (retreat before fire). So, it can only stay in Burma or Rebase (which it did, back to Batavia).

3) We don't need to mark ownership of all the spaces in a country like Dutch East Indies, or Malaysia, or even India: the owner of the capital (Batavia, Singapore, and New Delhi) owns the country. Opponents only control spaces they occupy, not spaces they were the last to occupy. Thus, for example, when I left Malacca, it reverted to US/Brit control because Singapore is controlled. (It would be the same if my unit leaves Sarawak.) So, all of those markers are not necessary, only the one on the capital of each of those nations.

4) The final map will block the connection between Kra and Burma, to make it harder for the Japs to take Burma.

I put in file 182 for my cleanup. There are a number of items to note:

a) My infantry in New Delhi is OoS. He suffered a step loss, and will continue to do so each turn unless I get a supply line to him

b) If you have any non-ANS, non-fort units in Dacca or Manilla, they suffer a step loss.

c) There are a number of Blockade markers on the map, due to the summer check. If they remain by winter, those resources and pop will not be counted. If the blockade ends in the Fall, they will be counted.
I should also have put a "blockaded: on New Delhi.

d) You can build forts in OoS regions.

So, it is Fall. Japs are not playing a card. (the evil Brit spy stole my only Fall card from my hand!)

Who is playing a card?

526 4/15/2021 9:26:00 AM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message Japs make their Summer move. In log 181.

Brits have a combat to roll; then we might have some end-of-turn clean up.

I have to say: this is a very strange situation.
525 4/15/2021 5:32:00 AM Turn 8 USA Message Losses taken in log 180 - over to the Japs.
524 4/14/2021 5:18:00 AM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message I think if I proceed from here, there might be confusion due to the presence of some now-dead units.

It would be best if I wait for the US to agree with the battle outcome (in case I screwed something up); and also for the US to tidy up the board a bit.

505 4/6/2021 12:08:00 PM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message 1 Hit. (slightly better than ToraToraTora)

You have to take the loss from your strongest naval unit. That is your 4-strength Carrier unit. And, all Carriers suffer 2 hits per hit. So, that carrier unit is reduced to 2 strength.

496 4/3/2021 1:17:00 AM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message Assuming the Soviets are not playing a Spring Card:

I made my Spring move. No combat, over to the US.

(4 units seems so few when compared to the vast size of the Pacific... But, I suppose it represents all sorts of command and fuel problems.)
495 4/1/2021 6:35:00 AM Turn 8 USA Message My card is a C4 - so you get to move first. Are the Sovs playing a Spring card?

I had hoped to start getting my PBEM games up to date but domestic chores have reduced my gaming time. Will submit moves as and when I can but my turnaround will not improve until after the Easter break.

Craig is a member of the dropbox, so he has access to the .vlog files.

I also kept my personal notes in a small journal/log file. If you did so also, he would be happy to see them. If you didn't, no problem. But, he still would like to have all of your thoughts and comments and opinion.

2. Jim, Not sure what you mean by "log" of the game. I have kept a running copy of each turn's log dialogue as I find the Vassal log dialogue text too small to follow easily. It is not a log where I have commented on the rationale behind certain moves etc. Will try to give you my comments on the game tomorrow.(15 March)
485 3/14/2021 5:42:00 AM Turn 8 JAPANESE Message Craig B. has just announced that the game is "final" now, and is going into Artwork.

However, he would like to hear any thoughts, questions, comments, complaints, etc from you. (And, if you kept a log of this game, please also send it to me.) I have, of course, already provided your names, so you can email him directly if you wish. But, it might be more coherent if I submit all the comments/logs etc together to him.

Please write up your thoughts in this weekend, if possible.

I think the SOV MVD operatives are geographically challenged. They have influenced Kwangsi not Canton 😊- The Kempei-Tai have set them straight. The Nationalist Chinese have no intelligence assets to speak of and are powerless to act. ☹

The US State Department however has been smooth talking the Mexicans

I think JAP is passing so back to SOV
