673 3/23/2020 8:17:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Okay to delete this game far as I'm concerned.
672 3/23/2020 8:17:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Many variables to these games. I think being under ISR for all of the early and mid game (thankfully not turn 1) was probably my biggest obstacle.

Anyway if you want to play a CDG wargame sometime I've pretty much played them all at some point. At least the ones from GMT.
671 3/20/2020 9:36:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Tom - thank you for the game - I had fun. I appreciate your patience with me and a few rules.

I don't know what Japan could have done different to change the outcome in this one.

I need a little break but would be open to playing again sometime soon. Meanwhile good luck and stay safe!

664 3/19/2020 12:07:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message thanks for pointing outt the error of my ways. I adjusted the attack to be at Kyoto. You can roll the battle and my pbm is done.
663 3/18/2020 8:51:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Crap - no - thank you for pointing that out! We will instead attack with teh same ground units against Kyoto....I'll adjust and add my pbm. sorry about this
662 3/18/2020 10:12:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Do you realize the ground combat would an amphibious invasion? Just noticed those two hexes aren't connected by land. Still want to dive in?
661 3/18/2020 10:10:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Found the answer in a Q&A on BGG. With no eligible units there is no roll.

Not finding this frustrating. Frustration is when you're trying to accomplish something that's doable and are foiled. This is just to see what it takes to take the island. Most games I've played the Japanese player quits well before this point.

The easier and more common victory in my experience is the isolation one so attacking Japan doesn't come up. You had a good shot at it.

I've never played this where the bombing victory was achieved.

Haven't figured out how to play the Japanese though the real sharks at this game will bid a PW point to be them.
660 3/18/2020 9:53:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Now I guess I have to look it up.

Logistic Value: 12 Conditions: In order for this card to be played as an event at least one Japanese Islands hex must be declared a battle hex and the potential for a ground combat must exist in the designated Japanese Islands battle hex. Bonus: The Allies temporarily gain 4 ASPs that can be used for the duration of this Offensive.

648 3/17/2020 7:18:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #62: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
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.

OC: 4 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
Only one unit can be the Kamikaze.
647 3/17/2020 7:18:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Play Future Offensive card as Event #45: 3 / Operation Sho-Go
Activation: Any HQ. Logistic Value: 5 if Combined Fleet HQ, otherwise: 4. Intelligence: Intercept. Bonus: If a Kamikaze attack reaction card is played in conjunction with this card, increase the effect of the Kamikaze reaction card by one additional Allied naval step loss in one battle. Remove from play if used as an event.

OC: 5 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
We'll avoid surprise and beef up our Kamikazes.
646 3/17/2020 7:17:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message If cards are drawn top to bottom in ACTS this was the last card I drew.

I recall reading that if this card is a forced discard in 1944 + it triggers the event. Usually as the JP you want to be rid of this card and would gladly discard it. I think a FAQ put an end to that.

Doesn't matter here.
645 3/17/2020 7:14:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Discard random Strategy card #43: 1 / Tojo Resigns: Moderates in Power

Message from Japanese:
Discard to Halsey. I had no recollection of you playing Manchuria and reshuffling.
644 3/17/2020 7:03:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #72: 2 / Halsey: Carrier Raids on Japan
Activate: Any HQ. Logistic Value: 8 if US Central Pac HQ, for all others: 4. Bonus: If during the offensive a US carrier naval unit declares a battle in a Japanese Island hex, unless the Japanese immediately play a weather card, the Allies randomly remove one card from the Japanese hand.

OC: 2 EC: 4

Message from Allies:
So - 3 battles, hopefully to eliminate your air and most/all of the land not covered by air. I guess having kamikaze cards - or a weather card - might hurt...
643 3/17/2020 6:26:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Way I read that rule is you can only go first by playing an offensive event card as the EC. You can't go first to play an event that draws a card or give reps.

I'd go an grab Midway but I have no ships or an EC offensive in F Ops.

We're loading up our few planes with bombs and volunteers. Carry on.
642 3/17/2020 4:49:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message assume you don't want to go first but you might have replacements so will give you the choice

638 3/17/2020 3:37:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message This would of been the American nightmare scenario of having to wipe out nearly every Japanese army unit via ground attack.
637 3/17/2020 2:41:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message With India surrendering you would draw one less card.

Needed to get there sooner. Or draw the card that speeds up the process. That card isn't remove when played so could theoretically be played three times in one turn (with the discard fetchers).
636 3/17/2020 2:39:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Draw Strategy cards Drew 4 cards.

635 3/17/2020 2:39:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message I think you could draw 6 1 Ops and still pull this off.

Looks like one full turn is about what it should take to subdue the island once all the pesky air and naval units are sunk.

So we'll sign the surrender documents right after we see what our final hand is.

I say all that only because your move isn't legal.

SEAC can't activate U.S. ground units.

All the A/N are automatic. Only roll is for the ground combat.

579 3/13/2020 11:25:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #75: 3 / Operation Detachment: Iwo Jima
Activate: Any HQ. Logistic Value: 8 if US Central Pac HQ, for all others: 4 Conditions: An Allied ground unit must make an amphibious move to a hex within 10 hexes of Tokyo or this card may only be used as an OC.

OC: 3 EC: 5

Message from Allies:
We were very lucky to get to moves knowing you had no cards...and 2 good events at the end. We invade Ominato and take battle to 3 other hexes to prevent land units from moving in.
578 3/13/2020 12:54:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Japanese Message Yea, the surprise cards seem almost unfair. But such is the lot of the Japanese.

Even if they win the long game it's unlikely they have anything left that floats or flies.

I've only lost as the US once. I got cut off in the Solomons and then was quickly done in by the CBI blitz.

I almost feel guilty. 9 activations with CPAC HQ. All 9 are CVs and all 9 are automatic. I ran the file - hopefully did not screw anything up. I had a good string of luck to be able to play this.
