325 4/1/2020 4:05:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message I did enjoy the game, even with the slow pace. I am just frustrated with myself as this must be my 5th or 6th game and I did not achieve a single victory.
Good luck with your personal life.

Bye Claudio. I will remove the game in some time if I am the owner.


324 4/1/2020 3:15:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Thank you for the game and especially for your patience. I am really sorry for the slow pace. A lot has changed in my life since we started the game and it was hard to find the time. Anyway I wanted at least to finish it. Although I enjoy playing online I don`t play anymore and just finish current games. It was a nice game and you`ve been a pleasant opponentz and thus I am a kind of upset you could not ernjoy the game. But thanks and have fun.
323 3/31/2020 3:32:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message You are right, I could retake burma, but it does not seem easy.

Lets stop.
If you prefer not to replay, I will look for another adversary. I would prefer a faster pace.

Thanks for the game in any case.
322 3/31/2020 3:14:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Technically you don?``t have lost yet and who knows...

But if you don`t want to to continue, Ia m fine with it because I barely find time to play
321 3/31/2020 3:13:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message You coiuld still draw a card that gives 1 PW, if you hold cards that will let you draw cards. Othgerwise you can reconquer a country. I would look for cards or try to take Burma...
320 3/30/2020 4:01:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Should we continue the turn ? Or we stop here?

Thx
Bye
298 3/25/2020 4:15:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I was afraid you would hold a card like this, I guessed on operation Ash. If you would have klnded one hex north on Maleolap and you would have got 4 hexes anyway. So if you want we can play it that way. If you would do so, may decision on a possible reation could be changed.

ANyway I love the game for such "So or die" situations. Thrilling: I could win, manybe next turn or fight all the way to Tokyo.

I still hope to win the game one day. I played 4/5 times and always lost!
261 2/15/2020 12:08:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I also played the Alaska rule wrong for a long time, in effect you got only 2 turns to retake it if the japanese player takes it at the very end of a turn. At T3 or 4 it is my view that the Allied player can get laska back or make his PoW.

But I also miss sime rules like the CBI supply. I corrected this on a move I would have done instead. Sorry for missed these rules, maybe you would have played it differently.

But I made also a mistake. If I did hot habd played the China OC Offensive I could have kicked you off New Guinea. But I did not ewxpected you to attack there.

I am anxious how it will continue... you are surely unde rpressure but still have any options to win.. your turn
