249 9/20/2019 1:17:00 AM Turn 1 Red Edit RED = Political Control; BLUE = Pacification Red: from 17 to 16
Blue: from 5 to 5
248 9/20/2019 1:16:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message And I'll bank the last RP (which brings me back to 2 - I forgot to change it).

Will decrease RED control by one as I forgot to change that - and i don't get a Dove for controlling 4 spaces.

Message from Red:
OK- moving on!

2. Attempt control (only 1 unit here)
245 9/20/2019 12:35:00 AM Turn 1 Blue Message doh. I just realized that my BW Navy is in Quang Nam (not Thua Thien), as it moved there for a battle - see log #198.
I don't know if that affects your move or not? In any event, there's no battle in Thua Thien
244 9/20/2019 12:28:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message Ok - lets do this:

Move everyone back into their original locations.

1. Activate Quang Nam
ARTY > Thua Thien

2. Combat?
RED 2
BLUE 2

Evade?
243 9/20/2019 12:25:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message Ah yeah - you're right. That changes things a bit. Let me re-tool that (and invalidate that die roll...)


242 9/20/2019 12:08:00 AM Turn 1 Blue Message >>> I can't count - in Thua Thien I had:
NVA2 (leftover from combat)
NVA1, ARTY who moved in this turn in Ops 1 and 2. <<<

* I think that NVA2 you had in Thua Thien may have been whacked? The last activity in Thua Thien I see in the log is entry #169, when a NVA2 (the only red unit in the province) was offed in a rumble?
241 9/19/2019 11:55:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message I'm done - over to you for the last card play.
240 9/19/2019 11:55:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Monsoon Season

This card is worth 4 RP if you play it for its event as one of your first 3 turns of the year.

Not players must play their 4th turn (the last card of the year) under extreme monsoon:

Tanks may not move, other ground units moving by land may only move one province.
239 9/19/2019 11:54:00 PM Turn 1 Red Edit SRP Red: from 1 to 2

Message from Red:
Attempt convert (3 units)
235 9/19/2019 11:53:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message >>> * I just realized, that I have Red at 3 combat factors?
I make it you have NVA1 and NVART in Thua Thien for 3 factors?
(I'll still evade)

I can't count - in Thua Thien I had:
NVA2 (leftover from combat)
NVA1, ARTY who moved in this turn in Ops 1 and 2.

That gets me to 5 combat factors. Did I screw something up? Likely!

Since I don't have to spend an Ops for combat, I will instead spend one to attempt to convert that region.


234 9/19/2019 10:42:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Message >>> 3. Combat in Thua Thien
RED has 5 factors
BLUE has 2 factors <<<

* I just realized, that I have Red at 3 combat factors?
I make it you have NVA1 and NVART in Thua Thien for 3 factors?
(I'll still evade)
233 9/19/2019 10:40:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Message Could you take a picture of the Black #2 Monsoon Season card you played last turn and send it to me? It's obviously different than the card that I have in my edition of H&M. Thanks.

232 9/19/2019 10:38:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Message sorry for the delay

*** I assume the only unit you have in Thua Thien is the US Blue Water Navy Unit, correct?

> correct

>>> 3. Combat in Thua Thien
Evade? <<<

> yes, BW Navy evade > Khanh Hoa
231 9/18/2019 11:19:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message OK - last card play - monsoon in effect so tanks can't move and ground units can only move 1 space. I think this hurts me more than it hurts you...

I'll play Black #20 (same card as you!) for 4 Ops

*** I assume the only unit you have in Thua Thien is the US Blue Water Navy Unit, correct?

1. Activate Quang Tin for movement
NVA1 > Quang Nam

2. Activate Quang Nam for movement
NVA1, Arty > Thua Thien

3. Combat in Thua Thien
RED has 5 factors
BLUE has 2 factors

#1. Activate combat in Phuoc Long.
-Evade? <<<

* I think you've played this wrong - I don't think you spend an ops if all of the defenders successfully evade, and there is no actual battle. Take a look at the battle sequence on the player aid card.
As I successfully evaded and there was no actual battle, I don't think you had to spend this ops - I'll add a SRP back to your SRP total to compensate

222 9/15/2019 11:26:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Edit SRP Red: from 3 to 2
Blue: from 1 to 1
221 9/15/2019 11:26:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Message In the meantime, I'll play black20 for 4 ops (Chimna and the USSR)

ops1. spend 1 ops to cost you 1 SRP (yes, I'm worried about a Tet offensive in 1968)

next, I'll initiate battle vs. the VC in Quang Tri - do you evade?


220 9/15/2019 11:23:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Message >>> I'll play Black #2 Monsoon Season for 4 Ops (it's normally 3 Ops, but since I played it early I get 4) <<<

* could you send me the text or send me a photo of this card? It's different than what I have, so I'm not entirely sure how to proceed. In particular, I'm not sure if the monsoon is in effect or not?

219 9/13/2019 4:14:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message I'm done - and I leave for GFI right now. I'm giving a seminar on Monday and I'm bringing Ian for a college visit. Should be fun!

Have a good weekend - back on Tuesday!

however, the evasion to Tuy Hoa was correct as written.
