276 11/10/2019 8:13:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Thanks Mark!

I have yet to make it to a CSW Expo (which is ironic since I grew up in Phoenix and went to ASU in Tempe), but if I ever do, I will look you up.

Thanks for a fun game. I learned some good lessons.
275 11/9/2019 10:25:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Thanks Brian.

I had a so-so Turn 2 hand, but otherwise my cards have been outstanding for a 'Fortress Japan' strategy. Always a tough road when Japan can get the WiE going in concert with this. Really tough when you give away the 1 PW wiggle room with the bid... :-]

It was pleasure gaming with you. Not sure if you attend the ConsimWorld Expo in Phoenix, but if you do, please look me up!

my best,
Mark
274 11/9/2019 1:55:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message I think I can see the writing on the wall. I'd say my chances of capturing another hex to avoid the PoW penalty is slim to none.

I hereby officially concede the game. Congratulations on your victory. I never could get the war machine rolling, particularly with the War in Europe situation.

Good luck on the rest of the tournament!
273 11/9/2019 12:57:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #66: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
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.

243 11/3/2019 11:15:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message It looks like you placed the Turn 5 reinforcements in log file #26, and then in the next file (#27) you did your first activation.

My guess is that you did your R&R in file in #26, and then it was my decision to play a Future Ops card to go first. I opted to not play a Future Ops, so the next file was your first action. You probably opened up file #26, and forgot to step through it before logging your first move.

That being the case, the simplest solution seems like it would be to place the Turn 5 reinforcements in the locations you originally placed them in log file #26.


242 11/2/2019 7:25:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Hi Brian,

Somehow it looks like my Turn 5 reinforcements, which I placed in one of the files, got dropped on next file.

My turn 5 units went to:
* Japanese Reinforcement Schedule: [37th Army] moves to 3705 (Ominato)
* Japanese Reinforcement Schedule: 8 AD moves to 2014 (Kuantan)
* Japanese Reinforcement Schedule: 28 AF moves to 3814 (Guam)


Would it be OK if I placed both Turn 5 and Turn 6 units?
If you want, I will place my Turn 5 in the same places I did originally.
