I'm heading to the Niagara Boardgaming Weekend tonight. I'm bringing my laptop, but I'm likely to not do any AR between now and Sunday night. I'll try, but no promises... we've got a good pace going, so not overly worried about a delay.

Thanks,

Message from Japanese:
Well, we'll just have to wait and see... but that definitely makes me a touch worried... Gonna have to accelerate Philippines faster than I wanted. Can't let you get SW Pac up and running in Manila.

Also, if I am not mistaken with this move, I believe that Hollandia and Wewak are now OOS. Supply is always a pain and in this region usually not a big deal, but I can't find a 4MP ground move to an supply eligible port that has a path to an HQ... Lae to Admiralty Is. are not neutralized AZOI hexes.

I'd be happy to admit I'm wrong in this, so if you see something I'm missing please let me know. Plenty of ways out of it, but none that I think you are wanting to do.

But check journal... you should be set with the adjustment to my orders.

116 1/15/2020 1:57:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message sigh... can't type...

It is NOW a battle hex in Biak... =)
115 1/15/2020 1:57:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Swap:

For this:

38 IJA - 2105 (Singapore)
AA (2/7 ASP) -> 3319 (Biak)

But yeah... it's not Battle Hex A in Biak. Still valid for the conditions of the MI Event (one hex island battle)
