415 10/30/2019 4:31:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Play Future Offensive 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.

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.

394 10/22/2019 2:19:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Re: SEAC LRB AZOI: Thanks! I'm aware and have a fix for revision 5, I hope to publish the next revision by Christmas, since there are a couple of fixes I want to add.

You raise fair points about Surprise cards and WIE cards. I'll counter with the timely drawing of ISR cards against Japan that allowed you to go last in the crucial turns of 4 and 5 and drawing Operation Chronicle which allows the capture of Pow hexes quite cheaply as the last move of turn 4. As well as being able to keep your own Strategic Agreement card to counter my ISR card.

Card Luck is what it is. :-) one must be prepared to be very Zen about the whole thing. I'm at work right now. I'll check your offensive when I get home.
393 10/21/2019 11:14:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Very minor bug in Vassal - SEAC LRB is showing a normal AZOI rather than a bomber AZOI.
