103 5/23/2019 8:17:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Next is the Allies Reinforcement phase. All of your units in the Delayed Reinforcement box arrive, along with the ANZAC and S. PAC HQ units that arrive as turn 3 reinforcements. Reinforcements must be placed in a hex where they are in supply and within range of an HQ that can activate them.

Reinforcements may be placed in the same port where ANZAC or S. PAC HQ are placed, but those HQs may not be used to place reinforcements anywhere else.

The four USAAF and two US army corps units that arrive on turn 3 must each roll to see if their arrival is delayed for 3 turns. With the WiE at Level 2 they are delayed on a 0-4 roll. Those that pass and all other turn 3 reinforcements go to the Delayed Reinforcement box.

Then it will be the Japanese turn to place reinforcements.
102 5/23/2019 8:08:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message 4.3 - Political Phase
4.31 - National Status Segment
Japanese have met the conditions for the surrender of the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies.
Japanese gain control of all air bases and ports in the DEI and Philippines.
All Dutch units are eliminated, as well as the ABDA HQ.
Both Alaska (Attu/Kiska) and Hawaii (Midway) are occupied for the first turn.

4.32 - Political Will
US PW -1 for surrender of DEI
US PW -1 for surrender of Philippines
US PW -1 for no USN carrier units in play
US PW -1 for no USN naval units of any type in play
Note that there will be a -1PW if the Japanese still control Hawaii at the end of turn 3 and another -1PW if they Japanese still control Attu/Kiska at the end of turn 5.

4.4 - Attrition
With ABDA removed and Malaya HQ OOS, all commonwealth air and ground units not in range of SEAC HQ suffer attrition.
If [19th LRB] goes to Sarong, then Japanese 1SN suffers attrition.
Japanese ED army at Midway suffers attrition.
101 5/22/2019 4:16:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Your move is fine. The ground unit uses your 1 ASP to AA Vogelkop and it is never in an uncontested Japanese air ZoI. The Dutch AF move is also OK. Note that it may not engage in combat since it used extended range for movement.

You may not get the result you want. The Japanese have met the requirement for the conquest of the Dutch East Indies, so the Dutch units will all be removed during the National Status phase. The ABDA HQ by itself does not retain control of the port and it, too, will be eliminated when the DEI falls.

You 'could' conduct an SR of the Philippines brigade to Kendari. With a US ground unit there when the Philippines falls the allies would retain control of the port and the ABDA HQ would remain in play.

I am not sure you want to do that, but thought I would point out that option. The Japanese usually have an air ZoI from Davao to prevent this. I should have left the 21AF at Davao and PBM the CA Takao from Biak to Balikpapan.

Message from Allies:
Dutch air attack
81 5/14/2019 8:16:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Yes, the Dutch air unit would conduct an air/naval attack against the ground units before ground combat. It would need a critical hit to eliminate the Japanese army (lowest defense strength).

Note that no allied HQ can trace a supply path to Sinkawang, so the Dutch AF will be OOS there. Should you conduct an EAM to Bandjermasin or Bali then ABDA HQ would be able to provide supply.

There is no Japanese PBM, since only ground units were activated and they do not get Post battle movement.

Go ahead and conduct the air attack at Tjilatjap, then reconsider your EAM. After that it is your turn to play a card or pass.
80 5/14/2019 4:22:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Rereading the rules I wonder if the inactive air unit in battle a causes an Air Naval roll 1st. As no attacking air/naval are in the hex it could potentially damage the attackign ground?

Darwin attack
68 5/12/2019 2:08:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message So for the amphibous landing the ducht regiment is destroyed and the hex captured.
I will resolve the Darwin attack now

67 5/12/2019 10:25:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message For each battle, you resolve air/naval combat, then resolve ground combat.

In battle A the allies have no air/naval units, so they cannot do any damage. Since an air/naval attack on ground units may not eliminate the last ground step in a hex, the Japanese cannot do any damage to the allies either.

For ground combat the Dutch regiment can get no more than 2 hits, so it cannot hurt the Japanese unit. The Japanese CVL gives them a +2drm for uncontested air, +2drm for uncontested naval and a -2drm for terrain, so they have a +2drm. They need only a x1 result to get 9 hits to eliminate the defending Dutch Regiment.

For Battle B, the Japanese have no ground units in the battle, so only air/naval combat is resolved. The Japanese have 12 factors for the carrier and 12 factors for the CA for a total of 24. The allies have 7 factors for their 3 surface ships. Since the allies have no air/cv units in the battle, they cannot apply any hits to the Japanese CV.

Again there are no supplied allies HQs in range of the battle hexes, so no allied interception is possible. 0-7 needed to avoid a surprise attack.

Battle A has Japanese with 24 factors, Allies with 7 factors.
Battle B has the Japanese with 9 factors conducting the AA and a net +2drm.
+4drm for air and naval units (the CVL unit) and -2drm for Mixed Terrain.

+ 1 extra hit on the air unit in Kwajalein due to the event => Eliminated.
57 5/10/2019 3:34:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Would need some help for the hit allocation.
Can I place hits on your CVs? I am not sure I understantd well rule 9.2F4. Does it mean that I can only reduce units in the battle hex?
If not, it maybe means that I can only reduce 2 units outside the battle hex because I have 2 CVs.
In that case losses would be on the 2 CVs (12+12) + reduce the air unit in Kwajamein for 10.

Intelligence roll
41 5/6/2019 7:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Only 2 battles, which are marked on the Log file.
Note that both Malaya HQ and SW PAC HQ are OOS. While SW PAC can trace an LOC to the South China Sea, there is no path from there to any board edge.
This means there are no battle hexes in range of an allied HQ unit capable of activating units, so the allies will be unable to react to any of these battles.

The next step is for you to roll for the intelligence condition. Malaya Air unit was in supply during my movement phase, so there will be a -2drm to the Intelligence roll. Only a roll of '9' will be a surprise attack.

You then resolve the battles, rolling for both of us, and implementing the results as much as possible. Once you have done that and posted the log file it will be time for me to conduct my post battle moves.

You may have response cards to play, which explain on them how to do that.

You start with the Arcadia Conference Event card in your hand, which will allow you to place the ABDA HQ there IF it is not in an un-neutralized Japanese Air ZoI when you play the event.

25 5/5/2019 2:08:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Tom, if ok for you, I will take the Arcadia card and change the Emergency Naval Movement to place the 2 US naval units (DD + CA) with the Dutch CL in Tjilatjap.
I will also place the ABDA there.

Once you give your reply abt this change in the opening move I will do the discards.
24 5/5/2019 1:11:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Just saw Chris's reply. I will do the discards.

23 5/5/2019 1:10:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I can do 2 random discards then we set a reshuffle for the deck?
22 5/4/2019 9:06:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Perhaps the best option here is for you to randomly discard 2 of your cards and then we can contact the moderator to return them to your deck.
21 5/4/2019 9:05:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Claudio - The allies start turn 2 with only 5 cards and 2 Passes. I see you have drawn 7 cards. We need to find a way to return 2 of your cards to the draw pile.

I will ask you for some patience at the beginning of this game. I had planned to paly a training game earlier this year, but did not get the time to do it. So I am learning as I go.

Will do my first actions today or tomorrow.

15 5/4/2019 10:31:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi Claudio - you should have the starting position file from Chris. I will draw cards and plan my opening offensive. I await your opening Emergency Naval Move.
14 5/1/2019 1:50:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Excellent! Then we are ready to begin.

Once we have the scenario file from Chris you will start us off with your Emergency Naval Move.

12 4/30/2019 6:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hello Claudio!

I have been away and am finally catching up on my games. Let us see if we can get this one started.

I played the allies in my previous game, so I will bid 0 to play the Japanese this time as my offer.
11 4/30/2019 7:23:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Moderator Message Tom Thornsen will bid first, if you need change sides just email me (craniumgroup@gmail.com).

Once sides have been picked, I will follow up with an email that will include a template Vassal .vsav file which will have the 1942 scenario already setup. When you open the file for the first time, you will be required to pick the side you’ve selected.

Good luck.
