The Japanese permanently lose one Amphibious Shipping Point unless it is their last ASP. Bonus: Prior to battle, if an active Japanese CA, CL or APD naval unit moved within the extended range of a U.S. non-LRB air unit it loses one step. If more than one naval unit qualifies, Japanese player's choice. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if use as an event.

794 3/23/2020 2:47:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message I will report it.
I greatly enjoyed the match. It was quite a high stakes, all in kind of match all the way. Just look at the amount of units killed. Many moments where I thought I had the game and many moments were I thought I had lost it. It could have gone either way and I hope we will meet again in this tournament :)

793 3/23/2020 2:38:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message I can't even get the 2 SN to Japan at this point due to Allied ZoI. So, that means that you won this match, and quite a match it was.

Shall you report it?

* 4110 (Marcus): [BC21 (B29)] moves to 3607 (Nagoya)

Yes, that gamble went my way. It would have been about the same chance if you had played it out more slowly.

And yes, the rest is guaranteed to succeed, I believe. I have three 2OC cards and with my 13 air attack even the [1SN] will not help.
791 3/23/2020 1:31:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message And I think that guarantees that you have enough forces to take the rest of the hexes, too.
790 3/23/2020 1:27:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Oww..

Only IX and XIV corps flipped, defenders eliminated. I even had a 70 % chance of preventing the capture of the hex.

767 3/23/2020 7:10:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Sorry for the delay. I was trying to estimate my chance of winning, comparing two very different approaches. In the end both give me about a 30% chance of winning, so I will just go for the one that gives me more options. In hindsight my efforts to use the commonwealth troops in the invasion cost too many card plays.

Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.
