148 9/21/2019 10:29:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message True. The Dice (and the card fairy) love no one. The best you can do is Plan and play the odds.

You won't be able to use the replacements since the Chinese units must be in supply. I'll roll for Intel.

145 9/20/2019 11:05:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Actually I missed the Allied PBM. I adjusted the game turn track. Allies are up.
144 9/20/2019 6:51:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Indeed Solid move! Overall Turn 3 hasn't gone all that well for Japan. I don't have a PBM I think since my 3AD moved via Strategic Air Movement.

I believe only an Allied PBM is required and then a follow up card play.

127 9/19/2019 9:31:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Oh, sorry. I was typing my previous message as you also typed. I just saw that you spotted the error. Japanese PBM:

* CVL Ryujo goes to Uluthi.
126 9/19/2019 9:28:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Japanese PBM ?
125 9/19/2019 9:27:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Actually Kuantan also falls. 38th Army was not hit. And 3rd Indian Corps is eliminated.

There's a tiny mistake in your reaction: BB Warspite can't reach Kuantan on an OC2. Kuantan is not accessible by sea from the Malacca straight, there is a light blue impassable ocean on that side of Kuantan. You can only access Kuantan directly by sea going around Singapore.

It's fine, it's an easy mistake to make :-)
124 9/19/2019 9:24:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Correction
I have just blown up[ the map and realised than Kuantang can't be accessed by sea from the West Coast. Therefore Warspite could not reach. Indomitable alone is not enough to do any damage.

Therefore change battle result to Auto - Kuantang falls to Japanese. 3rd Indian Destroyed.

114 9/18/2019 4:33:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Actually you are forgetting something. I have a +2 attack strength bonus for each carrier. That means in Battle A I had 46 strength points, not 40, which means I actually inflicted 11.5 = 12 hits.

We will flip Enterprise in lieu of Kent.

In battle B the Junyo contributed 10 points, not 8, so the managed 9.5 = 10 hits. We can at least flip the bomber.

All told I got away VERY lightly on that ambush card. I will send my PBM in a bit.
113 9/18/2019 2:14:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Correction Just realised that CA Kent could be damaged in battle A - so flipped it

112 9/18/2019 2:10:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Half damage = 8.5 - so no Allied losses. I dodged a bullet in those two battles.

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.

81 9/15/2019 8:53:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Missed Attrition:

I just realized we missed some attrition from last turn. I'm so used to SW Pacific Being on the map at the end of turn that I forgot to check for US units dying off because they are out of range from Central Pacific. In this case:

* 19 LRB in Darwin
* NL Corps in Luzon
* P Brigade in Leyte.

70 9/14/2019 12:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese End Turn
69 9/14/2019 12:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message End of Turn 2:

National Status Segment:

DEI Surrenders
Alaska Occupation begins (1st Turn)
Australian Mandates surrender

-1 US Political Will

Attrition:
British Malaya: 3rd Ind Corps, 8 Aus Div
Australia: 1st Corps, 2nd Corps, Aus Air
Philippines: R Corps.
Burma: B Indian Division (NE of Rangoon). In fact most of the units there are OOS except for Mandalay.

19 LRB needs to Emergency Air Move from Menado.

68 9/14/2019 9:26:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Of course! No problem on AVG. That makes perfect sense.

Regarding the Dutch CL, yeah it might have been better to move it there, though my backup plan was to hit it with 23rd AF before it moved on to Hollandia.

I made my own error: I should have used an SNLF to take Makassar to keep another army within range of Combined Fleet, I could have taken Tarakan with 17th Army, engaged Rangoon and probably taken Manila as well with all the activations. Oh well...

I'll proceed with End of Turn.
67 9/14/2019 3:45:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Francisco. I would like to make a change to my AVG Emergency Air move. Moving them to Mandalay as this leaves Rangoon under my AZOI.
