443 11/9/2019 12:22:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message Thanks Paul. Good game. The ISR/PW related cards fell my way which was key for sure. I wasn't feeling great about the long game with so many 1-step units but it would have been a race.

I'll report the result. Best of luck rest of the way.
442 11/9/2019 11:15:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message No you have it right. I was hoping you got stuck with 1 OP and 2 OP cards at the end so that I'd have a small chance of surviving the last attack to clean out Burma. I needed to see a few more cards looking for the Death March PW helper.

Well played, I am not a strong enough player to survive if the JP never goes into ISR. Even if I had gotten lucky this board position doesn't look promising for the end game. I think I got the higher percentage of die screwage but that was not the primary source of my defeat. I believe it is your job to report results to Chris. Good luck going forward.

CV Soryu Rangoon to Miri
8AD to Mandalay, attacks A

A/N JP 28 vs. possible air/ground
Ground JP 47 vs 6

A/N doesn't matter. The 47 ground get a minimum of 24 hits which captures the hex.

Burma will surrender and game ends with PW=0.

I don't think we need to roll it out. Please confirm in case I missed something.

433 11/7/2019 9:49:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #39: 2 / Sextant Conference: Burma Road
This event ends a US inter-service rivalry. Flip the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. Bonus: In addition the Allied player immediately receives 3 Chinese ground and 1 Allied air replacement steps that must be used immediately (cannot be saved) on in supply units. Allied air units can be in the air units in China box. In addition, the Allies may immediately construct the Jarhat Trans Route for no cost. If Jarhat already constructed then either Ledo or Imphal may be constructed. Remove from play if used as an event.

424 11/4/2019 8:00:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message I'm sending a new log file with the LRB units in the correct place. Also I identified the remaining AF unit at Calcutta incorrectly, it is the 5th AF.
423 11/4/2019 2:05:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message As I read the rule they do need to go to a supplied space so stick all three into Madras.
422 11/3/2019 8:38:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message N. India and Burma are all out of supply. Per 9.61 your units that move have to PBM to an in supply hex.

I think they could stay in place (and not move) but the rules also imply that they may have to move to an in supply hex. I'm fine if the two LRBs in Jarhat and Ledo stay put.

418 11/2/2019 6:38:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message Well if that is going to happen it doesn't really matter how we shift the boys around (obviously ignoring the threat was the right thing). I'll flip the Kor army just for kicks. Need to know what the air/naval losses are before I can decide PBM and where the emergency naval move will send the surviving ships. I will hold off on the file also.
