Move the China marker one box to the left toward Government Collaped box. If moved into the Government Collapsed box China surrenders immediately. Remove from play if use as an event.

OC: 5 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
These early cards are critical to Japanese long term success, so each one gets careful consideration. I would love to play this event, but there is still much to in the South Pacific.

I considered activating South Seas HQ and sending 4 ships of 49 factors to engage the CV at Viti. That has a 76% chance of eliminating the CV but it would leave me with only one more unit activation.

So we take a chance and activate Combined Fleet HQ for 6 units, using 3 activations to send 24 factors against your CV. Even with the improved chance of a Surprise attack there is only a 52% chance of eliminating the CV. However it allows me 3 more unit activations which can be used to sieze bases in New Guinea. So here we go!

Activate Combined Fleet HQ: Logistics 3+3=6 units.
1-3. CV Soryu, [CV Akagi] and [CVL Zuiho] Truk to 5024, attack Viti. [A]

Decision time for my last card.
68 9/14/2019 11:36:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Oh, you're right! I had forgotten about that bit. So the 7AF in Oahu goes back to full strength.

You would have had 31 CF in the Guadalcanal battle, but the rounding works in your favor so you still hit me for 8. So no change there.

67 9/14/2019 9:11:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message I have a chance to get this done before the Saturday chores kick in.

Note that in an Ambush the reaction player applies hits before the other side determines their attack strength. The only two battles where the allies did damage are as follows.

Battle at Oahu: A/N
US: 22CF, +4 drm [7] = 22 hits = Flip BB Negato and CVL Zuiho
JP: 24CF, no drm [9] = 24 hits = Eliminate CV Lexington
[I have only the CV and air unit at Oahu for 22 factors.
The critical hit allows me to eliminate the CV with 24 hits]

Battle at Guadalcanal
US: 15CF, +4 drm [1] = 8 hits = Flip CL Tenryu
JP: 32CF, no drm [0] = 8 hits = Flip CA Kent

Japanese PBM
[BB Negato] to Eniwetok
[CV Akagi], CV Soryu and [CVL Zuiho] to Truk

I think the dice are playing us, not the other way around. =) What a ridiculous series of rolls.

You flip CA Kent and I flip CL Tenryu. SS Bde lands in Guadalcanal.

Message from Allies:
I debated with myself extensively about playing this card or saving it for FO (it would be really useful in the CBI). Ultimately, I decided to play it as I don't think I'll get a better opportunity to get some licks in on dotted IJN ships. We'll see how it goes.
57 9/13/2019 9:52:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Yes, proceed. Do not need those 2 factors for that attack.
56 9/13/2019 4:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Tenryu is a CL, not a CA. So it's only 32 factors, still enough to sink Enterprise on a 1x, but I just want to make sure you still wish to proceed with that setup?

OC: 5 EC: 7

Message from Japanese:
I tried not to 'over think' this operation. In FtF play I rarely count factors closely, but in PBeM it is very difficult not to examine every angle of a move in an attempt to optimize attack and defense factors.

If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect.

[FEAF] is elim, no damage to JP.

All other landings are successful, so JP picks up 2 resource hexes.

I'll roll for the sub attack.

Let's see if I can damage one of those ships...
15 9/8/2019 9:04:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Thanks for the switch on my ENM.

Going through your attack, I count 3 ASP used. Otherwise a solid opening punch with a card outside the historical hand set. Should be interesting.

9 9/6/2019 4:50:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi Chris - I am back in the saddle, so let's see if we can get this game rolling. First off, it is 11 hexes from Tarakan to Wewak, so I swapped the ENM destinations for the two USN units. 10 hexes from Samar/Leyte to Wewak.

I will post my game file to dropbox and share it with you. You can use that game file or not, up to you.

7 9/3/2019 9:47:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I hear you. It's busy for me as well this week.

I accept your JP0 bid, so we don't have to switch sides. I'll figure my ENM and the Arcadia question and get back to you.
6 9/3/2019 9:22:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi Chris - We are both in the Eastern time zone as I am in the New York area.

I am away from home until Friday, then the Fall clean up begins around the house. September can be busy.

I will bid 0 to play the Japanese.
5 9/3/2019 8:17:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi Tom. We look across the (virtual) table again. =)

There is no danger this time that you will be assigned another player as I've already had a bye for this tournament, so we're on!

I think I've said this before but I'm in eastern time. Good luck.
4 9/2/2019 9:27:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Moderator Message Tom will bid first, if you need change sides just email me (christhibault@gmail.com).

Once sides have been picked, I will follow up with an email that will include a template Vassal .vsav file which will have the 1942 scenario already setup. When you open the file for the first time, you will be required to pick the side you’ve selected.

Good luck.
