159 9/21/2019 5:10:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message I think if you open 053 you'll be right where I was before the op.

Delete existing file 054.
158 9/21/2019 4:45:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message That's true. Indian 2 Corps was lost trying to hold Rangoon.

Did you want me to create a LogFile and restore your counters to their pre-move positions, or do you want to do it? I think we've got VASSAL set up so we can move each others pieces. Another option is just to cancel your previous LogFile by closing the game and reopening it with File 053 as the start??
157 9/21/2019 9:36:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message I only have the one Indian unit in Dacca to reduce I believe.
156 9/21/2019 9:12:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #21: 3 / Mahatma Gandhi: Worker Strikes in India
Can only be played in reaction to an Offensive activated by the SEAC HQ. Cancels a SEAC HQ offensive and the Allies must reduce one full strength Indian Corps (cannot eliminate a reduced unit, if none available, no additional effect). Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

OC: 5 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
It looks as if this offensive of yours is as good a one to cancel as the next.

Playing the Event to force you to hit the reset button.

134 9/19/2019 9:50:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message The VASSAL Map has an error. I looked for others, but I think this is the only one.

Per Post 123, the 3rd AirDiv should be in Manila, having only briefly touched down for fuel in Davao after the Sarong debacle. Instead it looks like it didn't get moved from Davao.

I'm sending a corrected map. You can change your last move, if you wish, before you take the next one.

3rd Air Div via Davao to Manila
6th AirDiv back to Kendari

Intel Officer on the Jpn staff gets a major fail, not noticing that the Marines had reinforced Sarong.

Technically you shouldn't draw a replacement card until after your part of the turn (PBM) is complete.

The Jpn Army is definitely having its troubles with any attack that's not a guraranteed win!

Garrison does 6 which is enough to sink the amphibious assaulters.

85 9/11/2019 1:14:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Take your time. Just because I play fast doesn't mean I'm in a hurry. I just usually have nothing else to do. At least nothing I like doing.

I think my 5AF units are legal. They're in supply and in range of an HQ (SEAC) that can't activate them.

The ground unit had to be in same hex as SPac since SEAC can't activate it.

May as well do the replacements:

Air - Aussie air
China - 66
Naval - none

SPac HQ placement is an experiment. Never know what to do with it.
