89 1/27/2020 10:26:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I hope I didn't miscount something. I'm pretty sure Oahu is safe from any one card you could have had, but I'd love to know if it's not.
And, I always feel the fleet is in danger from the damn Ugaki card. But Pearl, or wherever, the fleet is doesn't really matter. It's mainly to make you choose either some high risk end of turn gamble or do whatever it was that you were going to do anyway. I guess, I'm a firm believer in the fleet belongs in harms way. But, I may be tempting the dice gods a bit too much.

23 1/9/2020 11:00:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message No reaction. Activate CENT PAC 3+3.
Activate Asia DD at Biak, but no move.
22 1/9/2020 10:56:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message That will work.

No worries. I think this game is almost impossible to play perfectly, it's just got so many things going on. Even on ACTS it's hard not to make some mistakes. Call me on any you see and we'll fix as best we can. Usually not a problem until the dice start flying.

21 1/9/2020 8:45:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message I've been playing this game since it came out close to 15 years ago and still making blunders!

I sent back the Takao and put in the Hiei instead.

Cheers!
20 1/8/2020 8:34:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Will do tomorrow. If I messed I will substitute for another ship if in range.
19 1/8/2020 8:26:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Before I resolve. Would you check the Takao, I think it's not in command range from SS.

I'll save the file out, since I update the supply status on all my units.

13 1/7/2020 8:53:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Antartica! That is amazing, I have not made it there.

Ok so I will draw and plan my move.

Cheers.
12 1/7/2020 8:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I'll choose to draw the extra card and not take ABDA.
11 1/7/2020 8:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message - Set up complete
- I'll do my ENM and email this file.
- If you can set up dropbox that will work well for swapping files.
- I should be up for one move per day, most days. That seems like it gets the game done in time.

10 1/7/2020 8:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Well, Chile is better than Europe for timing. I think that puts you three hours ahead of me. My Mom and Dad were in Chile two years ago headed to the Antarctic on a cruise. They really enjoyed it all. Partly because it was summer in December!

Dropbox works fine for me. I'll email the ENM file and you can put it on dropbox with my email.
9 1/7/2020 11:20:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Incidentally, what is your prefered mode of exchanging vassal logs? I tend to favor having a dropbox folder to dump all the files there, but am quite flexible on alternatives.
8 1/6/2020 8:52:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi! That is a reasonable bid in this scenario I believe. I wonít bid against that so I guess I am the Empire this time. We wonít need to change sides then. Why donít you go ahead with your enm.

Im in Chile, which is two hours later than EST. I havenít had trouble keeping pace anyway.

Cheers!
7 1/6/2020 7:53:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Pablo,
Oh, good, someone new. So far, Iíve been lucky and only played one person Iíd played before the tournament started. I was hoping this tourney would give me a shot at some players I hadnít played before.

Iím in Wichita KS, USA which is Central Standard time.

This is the first time Iíve won the die roll, but Iím going to choose USA 0 anyway. Iím not sure who has the advantage with this start, but USA is more my style. Iíll reply to Chrisí email too.

Looking forward to it.

Game on!

6 1/6/2020 7:51:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I guess, I need to bid on here too. I'll go USA 0.
5 1/6/2020 8:04:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Thanks Chris. Looking forward to our game Greg!
