554 8/6/2019 2:46:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Japanese Message Yes, it is a tough situation with only one path to victory and so many Jp A/N steps left in the game.

I will leave this up to you. If you want to work on your late-game strategy, that would be fine with me.

If, on the other hand, you want to terminate this game, I would be open to playing another as either side.

Let me know what you would like to do. If you want to continue, I will play my second and last pass for my next move. I will not send a file.

553 8/6/2019 5:36:00 AM Sep-Dec 1944 Allies Message Hi Jim, I will pass.

I have to say I feel as though I am only going through he motions here. As I have been in ISR now for 2-3 turns and have no way at present to get out of it I cannot see any way for me to achieve any of the victory conditions in the time left.
