286 6/6/2019 9:11:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Nicely played.

I made some pretty big blunders looking back at it. I needed to play the card I put in FOQ in the CBI earlier in the turn. Even if you Gandhi'd it, I could have followed up with Cherry blossom and gotten some folks into Mandalay. Not a guarantee to stop you but it would have made it more difficult and probably take one more turn. I've been refusing that flank in a lot of games lately, but with you in ISR I should have made it more difficult to plow through there. Some good rolls and the KOR and anything can happen. The no unit in Leyte was probably a good clue as to what you were planning.

I also shouldn't have let you get both Midway and the Aleutians stacked up on the same turn. Even one LRB on Midway would have made that a two turn operation with a chance to respond with Japan in ISR.

The move the Philippines was another play that strategically was a stretch. I did want to try and keep you busy in the Pacific and I was willing to sacrifice the CVs to try and prevent a disaster in the CBI. I didn't draw any 3 cards on turn 3 so I couldn't get the CV in PM far enough away to hide it. But I could have run to Samoa and put enough planes around it that you would have had to work a little bit to get a good attack off.

I sort of bungled my move South right before you played Midway too. I was thinking the CV loss was a one time event, but it looks like it's not. I was lucky to get away from that one without a disaster.

I had great cards, probably good enough to win with better play. The early ISR without you being able to fix it was powerful. My turns 2 and 4 hands were very good and my turn 3 was pretty bad. But that's what makes this game so fun. The historical start is pretty awesome and other than no way to fix ISR and not drawing any WIE cards you had some powerful hands too.

Anyway fun game. Always more to learn on this one. Glad to get to play you, as I feel like I learned this game from the videos you and John Steidl's did back a few years.


Good luck the rest of the way. Maybe we can play again sometime.
285 6/6/2019 8:51:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Burma was really only obvious chance for that last point and I was pretty sure I needed that this turn. The ISR was making my situation rather difficult.

The surprise at Mandalay was a really good break for me as it left most of ground forces on the wrong sided of Burma.
284 6/6/2019 8:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Yep, that's the game.
283 6/6/2019 8:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Ground is an auto kill so I can't keep Burma.

275 6/6/2019 8:20:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message FE Air cannot PBM to Myitkyina. Reaction player units must end their PBM in supply if possible (9.61, second sentence) and Myitkyina is not in supply.

Interestingly enough, Hermes is in overland supply at Bangkok at the moment of PBM, so that is legal.

I'll place the FE Air back to Jarhat, it can't get to anywhere else where it would make a difference for the next card.

The Japanese player may reduce one full strength Allied CA or DD naval unit (Japanese player choice) that was activated for the canceled Offensive. This can only reduce, not eliminate, the naval unit. If none of the specified naval units are available, there is no additional effect. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.
