Intel Die Roll (need 0 - 2)
277 5/21/2019 1:59:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Good catch! Forgot about the rule that a naval unit must participate in a battle to stay at sea. Lets do this instead.

- Activate SF brigade. It invades Kusaie
- Activate 13th AF, 5th AF and Aus Air. They all attack Rabaul.

Since we dont move, any forces in your AZOI, you shouldnt get +2 for intercept.
276 5/21/2019 6:08:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Absolutely the right thought. But: You need to create two battle hexes. One for Truk and one for Buin. On an OC you can only do one battle. (Naval units cannot end their move at sea without doing a battle.)
275 5/21/2019 2:47:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Play Future Offensive card as Operations #22: 2 / Orde Wingate: Chindits

Place the deactivated unit back in its starting hex. 77 SF Bde: The Allies gain the 77 Special Forces Brigade as a reinforcement during the next game turn (it cannot be delayed). Place the unit on the game turn track as a reminder. Remove from play if used as an event.

OC: 2 EC: 0

Message from Allies:
Playing from FOC:

(I think I am doing this right)

Activate: SW Pac

- Move Wasp (hex 4218) putting South Seas HQ out of supply
- Move Lexington and Enterprise and attacking Buin (Battle A)
- Move the X Marine Brigade to Buin (Battle A)

If I interpret the rules correctly since no in supply HQ is within range to the battle hex, no reaction is possible
