So, no reaction cards in my hand this turn, a WIE and 2 MI, so have at it... it's all in the dice now... although, I think my odds are VERY low at this point.

I'll roll Kyoto and then it's all you to play out and roll battles.

Over to you. Chris, if you don't have any reaction cards, I can just play my cards and roll these out?
859 3/22/2020 2:23:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Chris,
Carrier Conversion was the reason I landed there. It placed an AZOI over all the ultimate supply sources. So I don't think you can bring the HQ back, or place any new units, as there is no in supply location that is uncovered by AP AZOI's.
When we started the turn I thought I needed at least 2 good Mil Events for a chance to win, and I got 3. I figured if you got Carrier Conversion last turn I would have no chance, as those steps could protect the ground guys. I figured I was also toast if I drew a bunch of 1's, but only a single one showed up, so AP should have enough activations to get this done. I think all you could play now are reaction events without an HQ?

3 Naval Replacements: The Japanese player receives 3 naval replacement steps. These may be used immediately, or recorded as replacement steps for future use. Remove from play if used as an event.

OC: 5 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
I think you've just prevented me from playing this... I don't believe I can trace a path to any of the JP islands with my other HQs... so then I don't think "anything" is in supply for me... so no valid ports for this.

Let me know if I'm missing anything.

I do sort of want to play this out. I think you will have trouble with having enough units to overcome the intrinsic defenses in time. I'm probably very wrong, but I kind of want to see it played out.

Unless I can play this legally, I don't there are any valid plays for me left in my hand, so you can feel free to play your cards and even roll the A/N battles with Surprise... cause it's really the ground battles that matter.

852 3/22/2020 1:25:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Yes, you're right. I forgot to half the defense values. I would have flipped the two Marine Divisions and the Corps.

So, in Ominato is a full str Army Corps, and the 5M at full and the 6M reduced.

I can see how this game might hit a bit close to home. My Grandfather served on an attack transport (APA-37 Cavalier) ferrying around Marines. Participated in Saipan and Leyte Gulf. I think a lot about the men that served and many did not come home.

850 3/21/2020 10:12:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message I think there was an error in the Ominato combat. You rolled a 1.5, which gave you 18 hits, but you treated my units like they had normal defense strength, so flipped two, one of them being the SF brigade. But my guys only have 1/2 strength when AAing, so you should have flipped the 2 MAR divs, and the Corps. I did that automatically, but then checked back at the log. So the SF brigade was removed at full strength, and I could only flip the Corps, and 1 Mar DIV (the 5th, so 6th is still flipped). Please confirm this, and I'll be back in the AM.
My dad, a Corpsman, was on his way back to the Pacific from Normandy when the first bomb dropped on Hiroshima. He spent six months on Guadalcanal in August of '42, and was not looking forward to going back. I've really enjoyed this game Chris, but these last two turns are kind of creeping me out....

849 3/21/2020 9:54:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Sorry, saw that you used last steps a couple of turns ago. I've been very focused on another part of the board. Also, I missed another mistake.

I have no divisions left in China... so no R&R for me.

Minor correction on my previous statements around Supply and Attrition. I forget that HQ supply can go in and out of land, so both South and South Seas HQ can go "in" Wenchow or even Hanoi, and trace all the way to Tsingtao and get to Kure... at least for the moment... so 3SN didn't suffer a supply hit... All really minor and isn't going to affect anything, but something I corrected.

Over to you to lead us off on the last turn. It's looking pretty freaking grim here, but I'm hoping for some blood fighting to slow you down JUST ENOUGH to pull this out.

Good luck!
