409 9/9/2019 9:38:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message Okay, finished my replacements. I would be interested in a '43 game, but won't have time to set it up until later today, if you want to start, go for it.

408 9/9/2019 2:01:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message I would also be game for '43 campaign as japan
407 9/9/2019 1:56:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message okay it is bty. Let's see what you can do. I think board position is a bit better for allies in the 44 start, however WiE impact has caused a major impact to ASP's and reinforcements. who knows what will happen. Only ever had 1 game go to turn 12 and allies lost on the final card play because they did not have enough activations to eat rhough japan.
406 9/9/2019 1:06:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message I meant to say, if you want to continue, I completed reinforcements so over to you for yours
405 9/9/2019 1:06:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message so, are you interested in continuing from here? I was curious to compare to the historical 1944 scenario start and the situation is a little different, between CBI, NG, and Rabaul, Japanese have a bit more in the '44 scenario. But also WIE is solidly in the positive for Allies... whereas here Allies have failed to dig out of that hole.

I genuinely do not know how hard it is to pull off the Allied long game victory, so it really is up to you. I am curious to see how it all plays out, but I do not want to drag it out if you are not interested. Alternatively, if you wanted, I would be more than happy to start another game on the side while we finish this one. Any scenario/campaign/side, up to you.

Let me know
