44 3/30/2020 11:45:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #81: 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.

21 3/17/2020 10:01:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Moderator Message That's the way it looks to me too. Neither SEAC nor CENTPAC can range a battle hex, so only SWPAC can respond and they are OOS.

So FEAF and SL Corps will stay put instead of reacting. The dice/die as rolled stand.

I'll post this stuff on CSW, but the JP need to work out their PBM now.
20 3/17/2020 5:28:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Mark,
SW PAC is OOS. Donít think they can activate anyone.

NOTE: Using 'Historical Opening' option.

6 3/14/2020 2:42:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Moderator Message Both sides may draw cards.

I did NOT see a way for me to direct the Historical Cards for Japan, so I'm hoping that option will show up when you draw cards, Robert. If not, let me know and I'll figure something out.

Robert, either one of us can post the Japanese hand on CSW; who ever gets to it first.

I've got 1:30 CT, so Japanese first move to be posted by midnight Champer Time on Sunday 3-16?
