163 5/12/2020 8:23:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hi Phillipe, regarding Chandra Bose, the card says that the ground unit receiving the replacement must be within 3 hexes of rangoon. I interpret that to mean an existing ground unit, since an eliminated unit would be in the dead pile.

It's still a very good question, I will forward to Mark and get his opinion/ruling.

I'll check the file and put my reinforcements.

I've got a question regarding the Replacement card Chandra Bose if used as an event : if you don't have flipped ground units around Rangoon, but you have destroyed units able to respawn, can you spend these ground steps to make them reappear around Rangoon, just like normal replacements ?

It's not an ordeal. Normal part of gaming. This change is fine. I'm working right now, no access to Dropbox at the moment. Feel free to make a new log fixing the moves.

Ill try to get my play in later this evening. You play quite well, sometimes you miss small things. Experience will be the teacher. I'm doing this right now making mistakes in Twilight Struggle.
96 4/14/2020 11:35:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Hey Francisco,

I'm sorry. I guess this is part of your ordeal against an overwhelmed inexperienced player like me...Thanks for your patience.

This is the fix move I would like to do : activating with South Seas HQ instead (all the already activated units might have been activated with SS), so I have 1 activation less.
[19A] is not activated and stays in 2913.
4AD is not activated and stays in Nagoya.
[4SN] is activated instead and makes an amphibious assault in Wewak (ASP used now 2).

Let me know if you agree with that.
95 4/14/2020 8:49:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hi Phillipe,

Apologies for the delay, but in your battle against Wake I didn't notice at first that you strategically moved the ED Army to Lae, however that would cause an over stack situation (3 ground units + an air unit), I definitely would not want you to lose a high quality air unit on a technicality of the rule.

I suggest we fix your move in some way. Whether that means not activating 4AD so you can move the SNLF brigade out of Lae to somewhere else, or perhaps a shifting 1 AD to Gasmata, or something.
