262 2/15/2020 3:46:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Y. Things are not yet completely decided.
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

170 12/4/2019 9:42:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Claudio, I had a look on the supply in Burma again. Because I had not yet elimiated the units in Malaya, Rangoon would be OOS. While this could be corrected to attack Singapore instead of conducting the china offensive, the moves, that led to the surrender of Burma is different thing. The conquest of Burma was done with the first card play.
