366 11/7/2019 3:29:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Discard Strategy card #24: 2 / Skip Bombing Attack: Battle of the Bismark Sea
OC: 2 EC: 0

Message from Allies:
In fact I hadn't any useful card in the present situation. I kept this as my last in the really unlikely case you had tried any offensive, in which case I had played this (more for pulling a last extra card than for any different reasons). But I already figured out an "old hands" as you are would never have committed such a gullibility... Gonna writing you privately with extra comments and proposals.
365 11/6/2019 8:39:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Play Strategy card as Future Offensive Message from Japanese:
I'll send this to FoQ, but I think luck has pulled this one out. I can't think of any card you could have that would work. I think if you had PBM'd to Rabaul, then Olympic and Coronet might have been a threat, you could try to take Manilla and Davao back and gain POW and the Philippines. That's the kind of desperate chances you drive the Allies to late the game when things are going badly. It would probably work for you too, certainly you would deserve it. I told them at lunch today that you're dice from here on out would probably be amazing, but hopefully for me we'll never know.

bty.

353 11/3/2019 2:52:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message I might have used it there, but the bad thing about weather is you get back the ASPs and you still have cards left.
352 11/3/2019 6:32:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message So apparently you don't own a weather card after all (I had used it judging this a worth situation, but you're the Master, I'm the Patawan... ;-) )

Message from Allies:
I'm perfectly aware that with ten (10!!) cards pulled out in this crucial turn, plus the one you've stored as FoC, it's very likely you're going to hit me on the face with one of your 3 weather cards. Still, it's a worth to try attempt. In the worst case, I'll have saved my ASP...

Message from Allies:
334 10/30/2019 5:28:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Thx for your explanations. I'll try to pick up the "less worst" among many bad choices and will redo my move (still bad, since you're aware now that I own the card I'm going to take back from discard pile)
333 10/29/2019 11:35:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Correct on the distance to ANZAC to the Buna. I thought since it's hard for you to reinforce since there's not a port at Buna I might try and counter attack.

The Marines from Guadalcanal can't sail into a port with an enemy ship without an escort. You'll need to swap out the BB in Guadalcanal with the BB from Espirito Santo.
You are correct that if I have reaction card I can eliminate surprise, if you want to change anything else. It's pretty risky since I have two units already there, but up to you. You may be setting up a bigger card.

Moreover, I realized that in some way Yamato had finished in the deadpile, so you'll have to perform an extra post battle movement now (now problem about that).

303 10/6/2019 1:20:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message That is correct. You did move the one unit in my AZOI so that triggers the +2 for the Intel roll so I needed 0-3.

302 10/5/2019 3:13:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Logfile written. I just wonder, your success range in your last reaction attempt was 0-3, correct? My feeling is, my assault with Marines to Namu has triggered the -2 AZOI modifier even if it wasn't a battle hex. In such a specific case you rolled a "1", so no differences at all, but just to know what happens next time in the same situation.

We'll see. I've seen some crazy things happen. I was telling them at lunch how I had a hand last game as USA with no 3 cards on turn 3. Which was bad because I couldn't build the CBI strat routes.
You've played this pretty well, and you'll have the big CVs next turn. Better days are coming. You will live to see them. With the bad dice you've had that's about all you can hope for in this game.

Message from Allies:
Welcome back.

Activate Halsey for 1+3 = 4 units.

1 a/n battle (3 LRB units vs Kwajalein) and 1 amphibious assault against an empty 1 hex island.

You can realize by this last card what shit-of-a-hand I picked up for this turn (very long... we've begun to play it in August and is not finished yet!). Normally in these early offensive turns for the Allied, signed by difficulty in achieving your PoW target, a powerful 3/ surprise attack card is desirable: not only I didn't pull out one yet, but this turn I completely lacked ANY 3/cards... instead, I collected some cards which had been useful 2-3 turns ago, to counter your offensive (like the one I'm currently playing... what is his usefulness once Japanese player completely stops to attack?!?). On the other hand, you pulled out very useful cards in this situation. I remain on my opinion, in this game if you don't get certain combos exactly when are needed you can't go too far.
294 10/2/2019 10:12:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #66: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

292 9/25/2019 9:18:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message On casualties, I took that hit on the BB, because can sacrifice the Junyo to replace the hit on the Kaga using the Japanese Naval Aircraft Range Advantage 9.2 F 7 rule. Since I have Naval replacements I can then buy back the Junyo. Up to you on the hits, though, just an FYI.

I'll be out a few days so we can pick back up when I return.
291 9/25/2019 9:12:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Step 6 is where I roll for any SR hexes. If I get the roll and choose to create a battle hex then you can roll or play a card in Step 7 to change the Intel condition. If I don't create any battle hexes then I could play attack Reaction cards, then go to PBM for you.
290 9/25/2019 4:40:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Are you sure that you can play a reaction card after having succesfully rolled for special reaction? As long as I can read in 7.27 you are not allowed, but I sense that the roll is used here to decide IF the hex target of the assault will become a battle hex or not, so maybe that once you have defined it as a battle hex you can play any reaction card. Pretty sure that the question has already been posed on Consimworld and that you are aware of the answer, so I completely rely on your judgement about that.

I'll submit my logfile with a slight change to your casualties and to my formerly scheduled pbm.

274 9/20/2019 10:02:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Well, LOTR is a tough act to follow. Although they did finally make some movies that did it justice. I'll put chapter one on the website and send you the password. My book is more Harry Potter meets Star Wars. But, who would have guessed Harry Potter would sell millions of copies.
273 9/20/2019 5:16:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I'm more a fan of fantasy than a sci-fi one (I keep Lord of the Rings very close to the Holy Bible on my bedside table at the end... ;-) ) but, still, yes, I would really be interested in reading opening chapter of your trilogy. Will be able to tell my nephew I've been so lucky to read the "incipit" of a future best seller in advance!
272 9/20/2019 5:11:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #44: 2 / Operation Squarepeg: Green Is. Invasion

271 9/19/2019 9:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Well, novelist is overstating it. But, I can at least say I've finished a trilogy. If your a fan of Science fiction in English I can send you the opening chapter. I'm sure I'll try to publish them in some form, since that's so easy to do now.
270 9/19/2019 9:31:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Wasn't aware that you're a novelist! Hopefully you'll send me all references to your novl once it will be published!
269 9/18/2019 6:50:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I'll keep an eye out for your turn. I should be around now, except for a few vacations here and there.

Trying to finish up a novel. Always hard to get the ending right. But, heavy lifting is done, so now just some polishing up.


268 9/18/2019 6:45:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message So this is an odd Sub card where I (Japan) can pick the losses from any active unit. So I'll put the hit on the little CA and leave the Zuiho full strength.

All you for next card.
