Play as event - minus 2 to WiE status.


And regarding my previous blunder - I will send the 18th back to it's starting point - that way I moved just IJN units during that illegal offensive - and you still get the 77th.

228 1/26/2020 4:18:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Oh no ! don't worry, I just wanted to be sure. I took notes during this game because I knew it will be a short one...
Next time, i won't forget to setup the defense in CBI instead of having sleeping chinese units in Kumming..
and I will not throw all my CV in the same battle to avoid some PW losses for nothing.
Let's continue this game like this and see where it leads.
227 1/26/2020 4:06:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Or - one of the IJA units was placed back at the starting point by your play of the Chindits card.

The other unit is the 9-12 18th Army in Davao. I could replace that unit back to where it moved from that turn and continue to play from where we are -


226 1/26/2020 4:03:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message And now I see that a couple of moves ago I activated both IJA and IJN units while I was under ISR. How do we want to handle this - I could go back and load up the game at that point, redo that move - and proceed from there -

225 1/26/2020 2:20:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message And I have two questions:
- The fact that units don't move into/within/enter your AZOI means that you don't benefit for the -2 DRM for the intel DR. For example if you launch an air attack with the 6AD and the 3 AD against my SEAC and FE, I would not benefit that -2 because you don't have to move. Here is my question now : does a ground unit makes this -2 available. I think so because the rules don't state that it should be an AA or air or naval to give that -2. Just to be sure.
- Second question, I realize that you active yellow and white unit during the same offensive, even in ISR but with no battle move, is this correct ? or you have to declare a battle hex to follow the restriction ?

And thanks a lot for being my sparing partner during my "learning course". I think this game won't last. And I hope you will allow me to face another defeat in another game :)

The sum of my steps is 54 so you are able to flip everybody, but you will probably choose to destroy one with your critical. So I let you choose, for PBM, I let the Aus Air where it is and set the naval unit to their starting position.
