Had a great day at the boardgames show yesterday, played Arkham Horror 3rd edition, good fun but a bit like Journeys in Middle Earth and WH Blackstone Fortress so will pass.

Arkham Horror the card game is very good and I am tempted, even though I am already into the Lord of the Rings LCG which is similar and a bit of a money pit.

Star Wars Outer Rim was interesting but the people I was playing with thought Rebellion was marginally better.

Dune was excellent, good with 4 but best with 6.

325 9/22/2019 10:14:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message yeah, Hermes only has one step... and from 9.2.F.2, my understanding is it is considered reduced, so can't be eliminated till everything else is undamaged...

Kongo is still in Rangoon, where do you want that to go?
324 9/22/2019 9:43:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Is Hermes single sided?
I thought I had seen it flipped before but it doesn't seem as though it does.
I flipped 11 AF LRB instead.
323 9/22/2019 9:40:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message That was bloody.
Flip Hermes and Exeter.
Zuiho to Singapore.
322 9/21/2019 4:16:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message still, the CBI is a bit of a disaster for me... I'm off to probably finish up our Imperial Assault campaign... I wounded two of the heroes in the first turn... if I can wound the other two I'll win...

316 9/21/2019 2:45:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message react with SEAC, 3 possible activations...

11AF LRB and Hermes will participate... AVG will activate and leave the hex and participate from Mandalay...

here's what I was talking about... I now have 3 air units at range to your 2... so, you can only hit 2 of them...

(the BB in the hex can always hit something in the hex with it, air or not)

314 9/21/2019 2:40:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #24: 2 / Skip Bombing Attack: Battle of the Bismark Sea
The Japanese permanently lose one Amphibious Shipping Point unless it is their last ASP. Bonus: Prior to battle, if an active Japanese CA, CL or APD naval unit moved within the extended range of a U.S. non-LRB air unit it loses one step. If more than one naval unit qualifies, Japanese player's choice. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if use as an event.

Message from Allies:
play this so you lose 1 asp... won't affect the battle...
313 9/21/2019 2:10:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #20: 2 / Naval Battle of Guadalcanal
Activation: Any HQ. Logistic Value: 5 Airfield Bombardment: If, prior to reaction, a Japanese BB naval unit occupies a battle hex that contains an Allied air unit, but no Allied BB naval unit, then the Allied air unit (max) is reduced (Japanese player's choice) one step prior to air-naval combat (even if this eliminates the unit).

OC: 3 EC: 5

Message from Japanese:
Doh, forgot about you not losing the ASP as well, too late now.

Without your explanation from your tournament game, I would never have considered that 16th army was able to be activated.

Play this for the event. Activate South HQ. 6 units.
1-2. Kongo and Zuiho at Singapore attack Rangoon - AVG is flipped.
3-5. 15, 16 and ED armies attack Rangoon.
6. 28 air at Singora attacks Rangoon.
312 9/21/2019 1:16:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message I'm very disappointed... that's as if I never played the card, so I didn't use any ASP...
