172 6/1/2019 1:19:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message I never try to talk an opponent into surrendering and there is still a lot of game left but I can understand your position in this case. The chain of events/die rolls that have gone against you are more than enough to cause a morale check failure. I personally don't have enough experience with the campaign version of EOTS to truly appreciate how much trouble the JP player is in with the current board position so I'll take your word for it (remember that the dice don't love anyone, the worm always turns eventually). I will let things sit for a few days (just in case you have a change of heart) then advise Chris and Chris of how this all played out.
Thanks for the game and the tutorial on how to use Vassal. I still prefer playing on the board since I have space to leave the game set up. Exchanging files isn't too onerous. I suspect my future opponents will expect Vassal use so it is now a required skill.
171 6/1/2019 12:45:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Upon further reflection, yeah I give up. PWill is at 5, and I have made no real inroads in Burma (Rangoon is out of bounds now, let alone Burma itself), the Aleutians (9-12 in Attu will die oos this turn) or the Pacific. NGuinea is wide open and I didnt den't your fleet. The only good point is WiE but wars are not won there. No point in slugging it out all the way to T12 and the inevitable Japanese collapse.

Thanks for the game!
170 5/31/2019 4:30:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Ok, I give up.
169 5/31/2019 3:54:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Since all my guys will end up in the same place they started (some flipped) I won't send a log file.
168 5/31/2019 3:15:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Apparently the name of this game is how many times can Pablo get screwed by the dice.
JP only does 25% for 27 hits.
US manages 100% again and scores all 50 hits.

I will hit all 3 carriers for 32 and BB Nagato for 14 more. Total is 46.
In my PBM the bombers will return to their original home bases.

Message from Allies:
Well I expected to get hit when I divided my forces but I was hoping for something a little less powerful than Op MI. Also still love (meaning hate) the end of the world thing that happens down at the southern edge and above Burma. Not sure why Mark lets that go. Fortunately for me in this case it doesn't effect the intel roll because MI has a Logistic Value of 8 and activating anyone at E.S. is basically meaningless. SO here goes

154 5/29/2019 3:00:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Interesting that if Yamamoto had not died, I could have smothered your reacting ground units. With 32 factors you would have inflicted 48 hits, saving me one step but bouncing me back anyway.
153 5/29/2019 2:01:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message This is the problem with ground combat in EOTS. The down side of this kind of die roll seems unreasonably harsh.

JP does 50% so only scores 27 hits which is enough to flip 2. Those must be 15 Brit Corp and 5 Chinese Army. So I will be over stacked and must delete two units (which are in supply so they go to the turn track). It will be 5th Chinese and 3rd NZ to get sent to the turn track.

Allies score 150% for a total of 68 hits. I flip all 3 attackers then eliminate the KOR Army.

In PBM send 11AF to Lashio. Will send a log file next.

You are correct I have NOT yet built Imphal. I have updated the log file to show that but it isn't very clear (just changed colors of the route lines).

This is the Intel roll
147 5/29/2019 9:47:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message To clarify, which are the Trans routes you have built? IIRC you built Jarhat with an Event card, and then the following one with a 3OC card, right? It seems you built Ledo, am I correct?

My plan was to use Yamamoto. But probably this would have only involved sending more air to get busted fighting bombing Chinese and Indians.

Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

133 5/26/2019 1:16:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Due to your sneaky European War play I have nothing to do until replacements (then I only get 1 ground unit and can't use anything else).

No rolls needed for ground combat. You score enough to eliminate 3 Ind Corp even at 50% effective and I can't damage 38 Army even with 200% effective.

In my PBM Indomitable goes back to Colombo and Warspite back to Rangoon. Your PBM next for [Takao].

In addition, now that you are back from vacation I will be leaving on vacation. Out from tomorrow afternoon until next Monday. I will have some times with internet access so play should continue but at a slightly delayed rate.

104 5/15/2019 2:23:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #62: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

OC: 4 EC: 0

Can't use this card yet, hope to see it later. Use it on SEAC HQ for 4 units.
1) [1 Ind Corp] Rangoon to 2007.
2&3) 11AF and 11AF-LRB Calcutta to Rangoon.
4) Warspite Colombo to Rangoon.

Guess I had better not miss any intel rolls. File coming (I assume your 1AD intends to remain at Manila, if not feel free to move him on).

101 5/14/2019 11:50:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I have to say that was one hell of a move! Totally missed that possibility, and I should have attacked Rangoon as my first action.

Activate SEAC HQ for 4 units. If the weather isn't good there is no chance to save Rangoon.

1) Hermes from Calcutta to Rangoon. This opens the road and puts everyone back in supply.
2) 3 Aus Corp port to port from Dacca to Rangoon.
3) 33 Brit Corp port to port from Calcutta to Rangoon.
4) 15 Brit Corp from Calcutta to Akyab.

I am now over stacked in Rangoon so [1B Div] and [B Ind Div] are eliminated (can't go to the turn track even though they are currently in supply). No PBM so back to you for the next blow. File coming next.
99 5/13/2019 2:10:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Perfect. In PBM, Shokaku to Palau, 26af to Green Island (4121), 4ad to Kendari.
98 5/13/2019 12:41:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message The [R Corp] is eliminated as SW HQ goes to the turn track. You can do your PBM next. No log file needed, just let me know where everyone ends up and I'll include it in my next turn.

Message from Allies:
This will be pretty simple. No intel roll needed and no Allied ground combat roll needed so this is the JP ground attack roll with +2 net DRM. Only fails on a roll of zero.

95 5/11/2019 8:31:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Right. This weekend is bad due to motherís day. Will probably get cracking monday.
94 5/10/2019 11:25:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Just two small clarifications.
1) you wrote 25AF at Palau but that is a typo it should be 26AF.
2) We have not been keeping the Burma Road track up to date. At the moment the road is closed (no hump no transport route built and Rangoon OOS).

I am sure we will find something else to fix before going to much further.
93 5/10/2019 6:38:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Correct on China army, still not getting my supply situation in Burma.
I won't use the FO to go first so over to you.

86 5/10/2019 6:07:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Sorry for my sloppiness! Looks good, except for the CN army which by being still OOS I don't think can get a replacement.

My reinforcements:

(31A) and Junyo to Truk, 25af to Palau, 6af to Eniwetok.

Unflip for repls 28A and 15A and Yamato.

85 5/10/2019 4:47:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Other corrections, Flipped all my units in Philippines and around Singapore then removed your control of Jolo Island which is actually part of the Philippines so still under my control. Also gave you control of all the Australian Mandates.
Now hoping this is all legal here are my reinforcements.
Colombo - Warspite, Indomitable, 3NZ Div.
Calcutta - Hermes, 33Brit Corp, 15Brit Corp, 11AF 11AF LRB
Dacca - 3Aus Corp
Akyab - SEAC Air
Darwin - S Pac HQ, [XIV Corp], 13AF, 13AF LRB
Pt.Moresby - ANZAC HQ, XI Corp, 5AF, 5AF LRB
Nauru (4719) - 10AF LRB
Efate - [I Corp], SF Bd
Esp Santo - Wasp, Miss, N.Carolina, Northampton, 1M Div, M Bd, 1MAW air

1Aus Corp
2Aus Corp

That is all I can use at this time. Will send game file in a minute.

During attrition also flip the 3Ind Corp at Kuantan.
82 5/8/2019 9:31:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message End of turn stuff:

OK, that works SS instead of 3SN.

I will put my last card into the FO box. So again no log file. The War in Europe marker is still on the 0 space and now should be at 1, otherwise all is good to go for your last card. Can't wait to see what you have for the grand finale.
