Message from Allies:
Surabaya A/N
JP 44, 1 full strength air

AP 14, 2 full strength air

As long as you don't get a 9, AP can oly lose 1 step Max, as the units in Surabaya are already reduced, so cannot be further reduced till everyone else is reduced. Since you only have 1 air equiv, only one of the reacting air units can be reduced. Of course, this all goes down the crapper if you get a 9.
85 5/20/2020 6:52:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message OK, condition is intercept. This will be very instructive in terms of how the A/N combat system works when one side has a form of air superiority.
JP is hitting Surabaya with 44 CS, but only one air unit. AP reacts with SW PAC (2+2)
5 AF in Biak and 10 AF LRB in Port Moresby participate in the battle.

Flip the Japanese ASP marker to its No Barges side. If Japanese Barges are not currently in play (Japanese card 73) that event is permanently superseded. Place the PT Boat marker on the game turn track as a reminder. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

Permanent no barges. Who uses barges?
Anyway, just playing this for the draw...
80 5/19/2020 10:19:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hey Brian,
Don稚 know how Dark Valley plays, I知 halfway thru the rules. Lots of exceptions on different turns, so I知 a little skeptical, but definitely going to give it a shot.
Thanks on the hip, and yes, I hear a lot of really good stuff on results. I知 hopeful it will give me back some of what I致e lost in the last two years. It has been insidious, and miserable. Even though I知 67, mentally I知 only 18, so this is very unfair :-)
Ok, will play a card in AM, I think I see some PT Boats approaching...
79 5/19/2020 10:12:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message How is Dark Valley? It's funny, there are so many WWII Eastern Front games, it sort of turns me off to the whole subject matter.

Good luck with your hip replacement! I've had a couple family members go through that procedure, and although it does not sound very pleasant it seems like it does eventually make for a big improvement.

I did my PBM--22AF up to Rangoon, 25AF to Batavia, Kongo stays in Batavia, Mogami to Miri. File up.
78 5/19/2020 11:10:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Dutch CL flips, no damage to JP.
Back to you for PBM, file up.

Brian, no problem on pace. I'm having my hip replaced next week, so after that I will be out for a couple of weeks. Well, unless it goes poorly, then you would have to finish this solitaire :-)

AP 6 (only hits on a 9)
76 5/19/2020 11:03:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Yes, there are a bunch of the "Dark" games. Dark Valley is War in the East. Ted Racier designer, GMT publisher.
75 5/18/2020 9:39:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I've not played Dark Valley -- which one is that? I think there are a few games with similar names (Dark Sands, Dark Forest or something?)
74 5/18/2020 9:38:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Sorry for the delay, work has been crazy and I was out of town over the weekend.

Thanks for the tip on Rangoon. I was thinking that LRB did not project a ZOI, but I see that in fact they do, they just don't cancel an opposing AZOI. In any case, you could easily move a non-LRB air unit to Akyab.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I declared a second battle hex in Soerabaja -- 23AD attacking at extended range, intended mostly as a pinning move. In retrospect, probably not the smartest play. Let me know if you want to activate any units to respond to that battle hex, otherwise I can just resolve it as declared.
73 5/14/2020 12:45:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Draw Extra Strategy card Message from Allies:
For Skip Bombing..
72 5/14/2020 12:44:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Nope...
Hey, at some point this turn you need to get an air unit or CV into Rangoon to mak0e it a supply eligible port. or 15th Army will suffer attrition. Please let me know if you have any questions on this.
Will draw a card for skip bombing, then back to you for PBM.
Have you ever played The dark Valley?

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.

68 5/13/2020 10:15:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message (By which I mean, uploaded)
67 5/13/2020 10:14:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Ah, I did not see that rule, thanks. Yes, let's change battle hex A to Batavia and swap out Korean army for (17 army) from Medan.

Adjusted file attached.
66 5/13/2020 7:47:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Brian, just want to confirm that you want to AA the KOR Army. It costs 4 ASP to use for an AA (8.45, A). The usual play is to AA Batavia with a 9-12, then Strat move the KOR Army there and attack overland. This is not crucial if you are not planning any other amphibious ops.
Let me know either way.
65 5/13/2020 4:39:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message That souhld have been played as event, but it doesn't get removed anyway. Also, hex B is at extended range. File going up now.

NOTE: Using 'Arcadia Conference' option.

3 4/15/2020 10:34:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message OK Brian, I put ENM in the same Drop Box, Game3, at the end. This is an ENM that I hope makes the CBI Blitz a little tougher, but I still don't think it can be stopped with a strong JP hand.
Absolutely take your time. Experienced players usually take several days to figure out what sequence they want to try on the first turn. If it goes sideways we can just restart, and feel free to ask questions, this ain't for blood!
2 4/15/2020 9:32:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message So I think you start with the naval emergency move, whenever you are ready. I will probably be slower than usual trying to navigate the Japanese opening moves!

NOTE: Using 'Historical Opening' option.
