91 5/14/2019 10:11:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Unbelievable have been playing this incorrectly for ever , thanks for the clarification Jim , finally all the info on the CBI makes sense & why you need to build the infrastructure , cool Im glad that is sorted Game On.
90 5/14/2019 8:20:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Jon,

Have a close look at hexside 1907/2008. The light blue area in 2008 would seem to indicate to me that this hexside is impassible to naval movement, hence a sea supply line cannot be traced across it. Similarly 1908/2008 is closed to land movement, so a supply line cannot be traced across this hexside as well. The only other access Rangoon has to the sea is through 2008/2009, which is prohibited in this case since 2009 is in the AZOC of the 21 AF based in Bangkok.

It would see to me what you would have to do as the Allies to use Rangoon as a supply source is to either build the Jarhat-Kohima- Imphal transit line which would enable you to trace a 4 MP supply line back to Dacca or Calcutta, or dispute the jap AZOI in hex 2009, which could best be done by placing an air or carrier unit in Rangoon.

If you still see things differently, I suggest we send a screenshot to Chris for additional information.

Jim
89 5/14/2019 6:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Actually reading that errata again hex 2107 is the land hex side & sea access is from all other hexes so Rangoon is still a supply port so no units suffer attrition in Burma.
please confirm when you get a chance thanks Jim
88 5/14/2019 5:39:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hey Jim with the Rangoon Hex the units in that hex can definitely get supply through hex 1907 as they are on a coastal hex so are in supply.
Now as for the port access I found this erratain the below web site about the map & it said no access from hex 2107 which on the new map is hex 1908 I believe , which means the port symbol is indicative only.
Please let me know your thoughts or tell me errata we can check. Or we can always ask Chris as he might know

87 5/14/2019 12:04:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Allied turn 3 reinforcements - let me know if I missed anything.

81 5/14/2019 8:19:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #79: 3 / Soviets Invade Manchuria
Manchuria: If Tojo has resigned, then this card MUST be played as an event, otherwise it can only be played as an OC. If played as the event the Japanese permanently lose two Resource Hexes (3302 and 3303). Place a Soviet Flag in each hex to denote Allied control that counts for Progress of the War. Bonus: If China has not surrendered, move the China marker two boxes toward or into the Stable Front box.. RESHUFFLE: If played as an OC or discarded, place this card back in the deck and reshuffle the deck at the end of the game turn. If played as the event, permanently remove this card from the deck and do NOT reshuffle. This card may not be played as a Future Offensive.

OC: 3 EC: 0

NOTE: Deck will be reshuffled before next deal.Message from Allies:

Limited jap move, just realized did not write down post battle movement from last turn but position on map should be clear, will always write down movements on ACTS in the future (requirement for tournament I think.)

Anyway back to you for reaction, battle, and pbm.
