108 5/18/2019 8:08:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message I'm sorry I see what you are saying now. Will redo
107 5/18/2019 6:35:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Hey Josh, got your email saying no changes to your reinforcements.

Would you be able to explain the reinforcement rule for me? I thought it was that you could only bring a unit on in range of an previously existing supply appropriate HQ, or the same hex of an HQ just arrived. If so, then those units in eastern Oz will need to go a little further east to get in range of C Pac.
106 5/18/2019 5:41:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message OK, I'm first. What of the reinforcement question?
105 5/18/2019 2:23:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message I can only seize the initiative if you have more cards. since we are both equal, and it is 1942, you must go first. no changes to replacements for me.
104 5/18/2019 1:33:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message You get to choose to go first with your FO.

Actually, if you do, and there is a change to your reinforcement placement, let me have a look at the map in case I think I need to adjust something. If I'm wrong about the rule and there's no change, feel free to have your turn.
103 5/17/2019 11:45:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Don't think it matters to my R&R that you might have to move some units, so I went ahead.

Notation looks a little differnt this time, I just realised I could cut and paste from Vassal, so I'll see how that works.

102 5/17/2019 11:39:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I suspect the reinforcements on the East Coast of Australia will need to be in range of C Pac, as ANZAC/South can only do their own hex. At least, I think that's right, it's usually you that knows stuff.
