79 12/2/2019 3:00:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message You are right, I thought the rule was only for activation but 6.12 says
6.12 HQ Nationality Restrictions
All HQs are limited to which unit nationalities they can activate and supply.
Fixing in next vlog
78 12/2/2019 2:55:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message S Pac cannot supply Australian units, only US
77 12/2/2019 2:52:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Attrition phase
(Singapore) [8 Aus Division]
(Manila) flips the [R Corps]
CC (Allies) flips the [15th Army]
- Australia spared from Attrition thanks to the S Pac HQ
Manila reduced unit is not eliminated, as it is in the HQ range of ABDA (12hexes)

76 12/2/2019 2:43:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message before you do Allied reinforcements, check Kunming. I don't think it is in supply with Rangoon in Japanese control (Burma road closed, no Hump) so the last card play you cannot activate Chinese armies
75 12/2/2019 2:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Political Will segment

73 12/2/2019 2:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #65: 3 / MacArthur "moral obligation": US Invades Philippines
Activate: Any HQ. Logistic Value: 8 if SW Pac HQ, for all others: 6 Conditions: This card may only be played as an event if at least one battle hex is declared in a Philippine hex. Bonus: This event ends a US inter-service rivalry. Flip the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. Remove from play if used as an event.

72 12/2/2019 2:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message nvm it can do 2 hops with non strategic movement via PBM. point about ABDA supply still stands though, it is OOS immediately
71 12/2/2019 2:31:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message very interesting... but I think the LRB cannot go to Tjilatjap on a 1OC. it's too far for 1 hop non-strategic movement and with strategic movement you cannot enter unneutralized AZOI. remember LRB AZOI does not neutralize anyway so it would not put ABDA in supply
70 12/2/2019 2:25:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #20: 1 / Halsey Replaces Ghormley: Offensive Spirit
Activation: Halsey South HQ only. Logistic Value: 4 Conditions: If the Ghormley South HQ is in play, remove it and place Halsey HQ in its location. If it is not yet in play, it is removed from the game and the Halsey South HQ is brought into play and placed in any friendly in supply port. Remove from play if used as an event.

66 12/2/2019 10:27:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Col Tsuji card effectively ignores terrain: "the final die roll modifier for the Japanese in any ground battles is +4" so in Kuantun, the DRM is not -2+4=+2 but just +4

but actually it doesn't matter, because a x1.5 result with 18 attack is enough to eliminate the 3 Indian corps
65 12/2/2019 10:16:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #77: 2 / Mao Tse Tung: Communits Offensive
Move the China marker one box to the right toward the Stable Front box, unless this would put the China marker in the Stable Front box, in which case no effect. Remove from play if used as an event.

Japan 38 Allies 6
16 11/21/2019 2:09:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Log ready. I returned the 2 naval units to their port. only moved unit is the corps.
Check again and roll
15 11/21/2019 2:06:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message You are correct, I reread the rule.
"Activated air and carrier units may use Reaction
movement to leave a battle hex before combat is resolved, but if they do so, they must still participate in the battle in the hex they
departed from."

I had read it incorrectly that it required the unit to participate in any battle. But it is more restrictive
I will therefore bring the corps in.

14 11/21/2019 1:38:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message FEAF cannot leave battle C. You can activate it, and move, but it must participate in battle C. The only reason to do this, is if offensives player did not bring enough air. If you react the unit out of the battle, you can avoid losses. In this case, it does not matter as Japan has enough air.

Also, even if Manila was not a battle hex, you cannot move FEAF air 4-hex-hop and join battle. It has parenthesized extended range.

Activating SL corps and moving to Manila is legal though and in fact a good move to defend against the ground attack later.

Let me know if you want to change anything
13 11/21/2019 1:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I prefer to let you review. If fine pls roll.

11 11/21/2019 1:26:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message That is correct. I thought CW could activate the dutch.
I will review the reaction then.


10 11/21/2019 1:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message I just mentioned AZOI for Dutch to explain the whole situation. But of course it does not impact this card, Allies still have a -2 DRM on intel due to US air in Manila
9 11/21/2019 1:22:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message yes that is how I always play too, seems like it is EotS accepted convention to roll attacker and then defender in PBEM.

as for your reaction message, unfortunately Malaya HQ cannot activate the Dutch units. Only a Joint HQ (ABDA or ANZAC) can activate the Dutch. In fact they are all OOS until ABDA arrives, so there is not even AZOI from Dutch air.
8 11/21/2019 12:28:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message My default mode of rolling is attcker is always teh 1st die and defender the second die. It does not matter who rolls. OK for you?
