193 11/21/2019 1:32:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message also, I wonder if you can do Manila and Aitape on the same card. although there is no chance of damage either side, I think Aitape is still a battle hex?

181 11/12/2019 3:22:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message I am not ttoally clear if I understoof you right: you wopuld rather take Rangoon in T2 instead of DEo surrender? (Doing not so, you taught me a lesson...)
180 11/12/2019 3:21:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Thanks for the hint. I agree with you in matters regarding Rangoon. It was invaded by AA qit a full Army. The position I achieve, also with a lot of learning from our games, is th emaximum you can get I woul d guess. The main difference was starting again with 41 instead of the 42 scenario which hinders the japanese too much in my eyes, especially if you get a bad hand, in which case Rangoon cannot be captured
179 11/10/2019 10:41:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message by the way, I think you uploaded a file for another game in the same dropbox, "058 T4 end.vlog" looks like turn 2 end of turn, in case you are missing it

nice opening capturing DEI, Rangoon, Solomons, and Gili. but I wonder how Dutch 7 regiment got to New Guinea :)

I am starting to think Rangoon is almost as important as early surrender of DEI, although Mark Herman talks about DEI a lot, if you can only neutralize DEI but can capture Rangoon on turn 2, that might be better than trading for DEI surrender, and going for Rangoon later. if Allies can reinforce Rangoon, it turns into a quagmire and then Japan is shut out of the CBI. happened to me twice now. Allies have a lot of cards like Slim and Chindits that can make it so tricky

hope you don't mind I peeked at the game :)
