742 1/2/2020 12:03:00 AM Summer 1945 Axis Message Great. Sure thing.
741 1/2/2020 12:03:00 AM Summer 1945 Allied Message How about an AREA rematch, switching sides?



740 1/1/2020 5:23:00 PM Summer 1945 Allied Message True, I did have some bad luck at the end. But in the first half of the game I enjoyed good luck with timely key card draws. So with average luck earlier I would have been in a worse position at the start of 1945.

739 1/1/2020 5:15:00 PM Summer 1945 Axis Message Thanks for the kind comments. But if Im honest, you were massively unlucky. You faced, what was it, four 1-6 die rolls to my one (I think). Also a string of bad rolls late on. And no Hitler Orders for the last few turns. Your attacking was brutal and relentless. I was smashed to pieces, dreading every attack!
738 1/1/2020 5:07:00 PM Summer 1945 Allied Message So Axis win with a 2 VP finish. Challenging and enjoyable game as always. Great defense. Germany was too tough a nut to crack in 1945.

I'll send in the AREA results.

658 12/21/2019 5:26:00 PM Spring 1945 Axis Message looked up the FAQ:

Do the Invasion card prerequisites (the 7th Army) still apply even after "No further invasions are declared?" No. There are no prerequisites on these cards. 7.63 Allied Invasion Event Cards (...) If played as a reinforcement card, any LCUs listed already in play, including in the Reserve Box, are simply ignored. (Any LCUs in the Reserve Box when Husky or Anvil-Dragoon is played as a regular reinforcement, consider them shipped to the Pacific Theater, and remove them from the game). Torch, Sledgehammer, Round-Up and Overlord may only be played (as Events) as invasions, and may not be played as Reinforcement Events.(...)

so looks like you are all good.
