435 1/12/2020 8:37:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Nope. Back to my original diagnosis. IE came too late & USA isn't even in the war. To continue is a waste of time.

Deleting it. Let me know if you want to go again. Thanks.
434 1/12/2020 8:26:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message I think you like torturing me.

Ok. Let me see what I can do.
433 1/12/2020 8:21:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message With the revised map and a stack in El Alamein, you could SR from Tobruk to Alexandria and the corps in El Alamein back to Alexandria.
432 1/12/2020 8:18:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message No damage to PZc. Advance as indicated earlier.

428 1/12/2020 8:14:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message On this Bonzai removal: "310 1/10/2020 10:16:00 PM Winter 1942 Allied Message Tobruk & B-B"

I think you forgot to move the one CWc back to Alexandria (illegal SR). So you thought you had two in Buq Buq.

I thought it odd that you removed the one from Buq Buq instead of Alexandria. So we can move the CWc from Alexandria to Buq Buq.
427 1/12/2020 8:12:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Good game.

Let me know when/if you want to play again.
426 1/12/2020 8:10:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Ok. Your map is fine. You can go ahead.
425 1/12/2020 8:09:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Well, Tobruk attack was a complete disaster.

I think we can call this one done.
424 1/12/2020 8:09:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message I have BRc in Buq Buq, CWc in Tobruk and Alexandria.
423 1/12/2020 8:08:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message Note: PZAA requires 2 OPs to activate in Egypt.
422 1/12/2020 8:07:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message I have 4s at B-B. A BRc & CWc.

357 1/11/2020 12:34:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message Yes, late draw of Ind Evac really hurts Allies.

Late FDR and Hitler DOW also hurt allies in most cases. However, that is not true if Axis lose Africa early and Casablanca reduces VPs below 11 making Totalier Krieg unplayable by the Axis. I did that to an axis player once.
356 1/11/2020 12:31:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message I hate to do this & my apologies, but could you at your convenience describe my portion of the EF?
355 1/11/2020 12:29:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message You could play Ind Evac as an Event without OPs now or save it until the third action and then play it as Dual.
354 1/11/2020 12:29:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message Sorry, this is one of those confusing cards that is not really a yellow card.

Rule book:

5 d INDUSTRIAL EVACUATION*: Allows play of Soviet Tank Armies reinforcements (Card 4) four turns later. Add one card to Allied Hand starting eight turns later. May not be played if Moscow has ever been occupied by an Axis unit.

d = Dual Action Card if Stalin is in Moscow

Clarification section of rules:

Provisional Yellow Event cards (those cards without a Yellow box that the rules allow to be played as Yellow events under certain circumstances) may not be played as Yellow Event cards during Spring Thaw rounds, but may otherwise be played normally.

Industrial Evacuation is a Red card, not a Yellow Card. It lacks the Yellow Box seen on cards with the big D in the rules.
