335 4/19/2019 4:08:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message That was closer than it looked. US was about to get in steamroller mode. And as long as you can liberate one country a turn you're safe from losing to PoW.

In the future if I get hit with ISR on turn one I'd just forget about Burma and India.

Thanks for the games.
334 4/19/2019 9:21:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message Well played again!
333 4/19/2019 7:23:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message I had that card from the beginning. Had WiE, 2 subs and the Kamikaze.

But learned something important. The JP can't win on any turn where the US takes back a conquered country. Since you can't go to negative PW you only get to 0 no matter how many cards you play. Then in the National Status Segment the US gets back to 1. The US don't lose until the end of turn phase.

That's why I was nervous when you took Singapore.
332 4/19/2019 7:20:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #43: 1 / Tojo Resigns: Moderates in Power
If the game turn is 1944 or later, this card must be played as an event otherwise it is a Japanese option to play as an event, an OC, or discard. Reduce US Political Will by two. The Allied Manchurian Invasion card's prerequisite has been met. Flip the game turn marker from its PM Tojo to its Tojo Resigns side as a reminder. RESHUFFLE: If this card is played as an OC or a discard, reshuffle the Japanese deck at the end of this game turn. This card may not be played as a Future Offensive. Remove from play if used as an event.
