OC: 4 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
Will start out with this.
Not that it will impact you much at this point, but it gives me an offensive draw, which I think makes it a must-play for Event.
98 1/18/2020 3:07:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Okay, I took you up on the offer to relocate the Hermes. I think I did my replacements correctly. I'll let you play the first card.

91 1/17/2020 1:01:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I took 2 ground replacements, one in Rangoon and one in Palembang. Also flipped yamato to full.
You will probably flip all your Aussies to full, and adjust India.
I activated my reinforcements so you can see where they ended up.
90 1/17/2020 12:55:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Also need to flip the Malaya units.
If it's OK, I'll swap the 1 MAW for VMA 211. Otherwise 1 MAW will be stuck there till you get some of the Marshalls.
Otherwise, looks pretty good. Be aware that if I send a CV to 1607 and attack Calcutta or Dacca everybody will be OOS. You can avoid this with an air/CV in Madras, and can make the whole place bullet proof with another in Maldives. Feel free to adjust when you take your replacements.
89 1/16/2020 11:52:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Also,
With historical JP hand DEI is almost guaranteed to fall, consequently it us very hard to play ABDA fir the Eventvabd successfully place the HQ. Because of this, I usually take a fully random hand in the hope of getting a WIE card, which can be huge on the first turn.
So, in the tournament game Iím playing, I didnít take it, and immediately got thrown into ISR......and I didnít draw a WIE card. Best laid plans....
88 1/16/2020 10:13:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Brian,
The Wildcats at Wake, and all ďdotĒ units must stay on the map. If they are removed for any reason they are eliminated. Iíll put it back at Wake tomorrow.
Hey, you are doing great, and are picking up all the little nuances in the system WAY faster than I did. Crap, Iím still making mistakes every game...

US Political Will: drops by 1 to 7

Attrit:
Burma: Chinese (6) is not eliminated because in range of SEAC HQ.
Phillipines - flip R Corps. Other units I think are okay since in range of SW PAC HQ.
Australia - all units flip
83 1/16/2020 9:14:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #4: 1 / Arcadia Conference
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. Bonus: The Allied player receives the ABDA HQ, which is place in any in supply port in Java, Borneo, Sumatra or Celebes. If no such port is available this HQ is removed from play for the remained of the game. Remove from play if used as an event.

I also thought the little dot on the Dutch division meant it only had one step, but I think it means it can't get replacements. Lastly (for now), I did not realize that activated units that did not participate in a battle can still use PBM. All good to know!

It was a fine move, just wanted to make sure on the direction supply is traced.
OK, what to do.....

63 1/9/2020 8:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Okay, I see that the Chinese (6) is still OOS. I was miscounting the the MP for some reason. I think will stick with my move, though. You'll probably end up getting to enjoy the fruit of my labor, but I don't really see any other great moves and I think it could help my ability to deploy units in defense of Burma.
62 1/8/2020 6:21:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Let me know if you want to stick with your last move or do something else?
Some people don't like to build them early as the Japanese may end up using them. I kind of play it by ear, sometimes they can be very useful.

You would still need to build the section in Ledo or Kohima to get 6th Army in supply. You can only trace 4MP overland, and the last two hexes will cost 4. One thing I always mess up is you must trace FROM HQ to Unit. I think you might not be doing that in this case.
Also, you get a free roll with your air unit in the Rangoon attack. I'll roll it now, you can reduce 15th Army with a hit.

Message from Allies:
C: Rangoon - I don't think my air unit can contribute anything to the defense, so 29 v 3 base, again with a +4 (I suspect this is a futile roll as well, but I'll do it anyway)
55 1/7/2020 9:16:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Actually, I didn't realize the Dutch units were one step, I don't think I can do anything to you in battle hexes A and B and you are guaranteed at least a 9 with the +4, so eliminate both Dutch units.

Let's say the 5th op was used to move FE Air from Akyab to Rangoon or something. Thanks again for moving that for me.
51 1/6/2020 5:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Ah, thanks, Rob. I did not see that Rangoon in on the southern edge of the hex, and therefore cannot trace supply through 2009 if there is an uneutralized AZOI there. I keep thinking in terms of Paths of Glory, where as long as you can connect the hexes the status of different hex sides doesn't matter. And I guess to be supplied through SEAC the units need to be within 4 MPs (rather than 4 hexes, which I initially thought?)
50 1/2/2020 9:21:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Brian,
I'd like to make a small change on the map. This unusual result in Rangoon closed the Burma Road because supply out of Rangoon is blocked by the un-neutralized AZOI. This means that right now everyone in Burma is OOS. Not good!
Lets put the reduced FEAF in Rangoon, so that you can reposition the Indians and Chinese on you next play.
This is a learning game, but won't function as such if there is nothing to move. Try to get re-positioned so that you can get most of your guys supplied from SEAC especially your strong Indian Corps which would not be supplied in Mandalay if the FEAF dies or Rangoon falls.

I PBMed 21 NAF to Davao and Nagato back to Saigon.
Back to you, file up.
49 1/2/2020 8:51:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Absolutely maintain control!
FE AF canít PBM as it was never activated due to the surprise attack.
