36 9/21/2019 9:26:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Aha so that's where that file went! I was really wondering where I had lost it. As an aside that's an interesting game, Japan blitzkrieg-ed for Rangoon in turn 2 and left the DEI and Malaya in supply, while allies got a WIE card so had a big pile of reinforcements on turn 3 ... It's the first game I played where that WIE situation happened

As for this game you're right about the wasted activations, but I don't think there's anything that I can really do with them, so go ahead with your reaction
35 9/21/2019 4:18:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message 2 things - 1 you wrote sw pac but activated cpac, and have more activations if you want, I counted 5, and I think the LV should be 7
2 you posted a file for a different game after (best wishes for India)

3 9/9/2019 8:31:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I guess I should switch to my real name. Seems like between Consimworld and here the wargame folks are all using their real names... I'm used to the wild west of anonymous video games multiplayer.

So I think ACTS sets up each side with specific card in hand, instead of in FOQ. But scenario has them in FOQ, so we are supposed to "play" them into FOQ right away and draw 7 cards? I don't remember doing that last time.

Also, do you mind if I "complete" the other 1943 game? Does that delete it from ACTS? I don't have much need for it either way...

2 9/9/2019 8:24:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message yep, i'm here - I looked under chrysalid - maybe I just din't look close enough - posted on the wrong '43 game
1 9/9/2019 7:31:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message created the game. hopefully you get this. I think it Allied card first, I should be able to get to it tonight
