180 7/16/2020 11:02:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Discard random Strategy card #9: 3 / Rear Admiral Matami Ugaki: Seizure of Hawaiian Islands

Message from Japanese:
Sounds like a plan, Rob! Iíve been learning Imperial Struggle, as well. So far I like it, but trying to come up with the best move really makes my head hurt ó so many factors to consider!
179 7/16/2020 10:32:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Brian,
I think you have all the basics in EOTS, and you are obviously very good at CDGís. At this point I think you would benefit from playing out the moves from the ACTS logs in the final rounds of the EOTS tournament currently underway. These guys are really good (nan, did I get smoked!), and you would be learning from the best. Another crack at POG sounds great. My family is coming out for a few weeks, but when the coast is clear Iíll give you a holler! Iím currently learning PQ-17, and Imperial Struggle. So many games, so little time!
178 7/16/2020 6:47:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Hi Rob,

At this point I am going to concede. I think you are in a strong position, and I donít see very many avenues to reduce your PW going forward. More generally, as much as I want to like EotS, I just never find myself looking forward to making a move. Itís a very elegant and intricate game system, but I just donít find it to be that much fun! Anyway, Iíve enjoyed playing it with you and I appreciate the time youíve taken to help me learn it. Please keep in touch ó maybe Iíll find myself really wanting to try EotS again sometime after a little break, and Iím always happy to play a POG rematch or try out some other game.

Congratulations and good games!

-Brian
177 7/12/2020 10:16:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Ah, I thought maybe the marker just hadn't been updated, will need to re-consider.
176 7/12/2020 9:26:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Brian,
All the transport routes have been built in Northern India, so the Burma Road is open per 13.78, B.
This gives a -8 modifier, so almost impossible to get a hit on China. Please replay that card, maybe take manila and reinforce Java?

174 7/12/2020 9:14:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #35: 3 / Operation KE: Guadalcanal Evacuation
Choose a Japanese occupied coastal hex. Up to 3 Japanese ground units in the chose hex and all adjacent hexes (that do not have to be coastal hexes) may conduct strategic naval movement (with no amphibious shipping points required) from these hexes to any single friendly port hex. No battles may be initiated. The move is unaffected by Allied air ZOI, however all other conditions for a strategic naval move apply.

OC: 5 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
Will try my hand at a China Offensive, before things go to hell in Burma. I believe it is an automatic success (baseline of 9 divisions with no Burma road subtraction), but I will roll just in case I am missing something.

Activation: South or South Seas HQs only. Logistic Value: 5 Paratroopers: Prior to movement place a Japanese control marker in a hex that is within extended range of an active Japanese air unit if (1) the hex is either unoccupied or is occupied solely by a Dutch regiment; and (2) the hex is not within an unneutralized Allied air ZOI.

163 7/7/2020 7:49:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Not sure Brian. Where are you seeing the ďRSĒ?
162 7/7/2020 7:38:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Hi Rob,

If a card is type ďRS,Ē is that a type of reaction or a resource card? (I confess Iím being lazy and trying to avoid having to sort through my hard copy deck to see what color it is.)

159 7/2/2020 8:06:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Brian,
I updated the file. I placed 23rd NAF in Bangkok as your Emergency Air Move, but you can place it anywhere within 5 hexes of Mandalay. Then back to you for next card.
158 7/1/2020 10:51:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message No worries dude! My 6 became a 5 after jungle, but still good enough. In a lot of games Iíve seen multiple armies disappear on both sides in a single combat. It can be very discouraging when youíre on the wrong end of one of those...
157 7/1/2020 10:36:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Yes, that makes sense. Sorry, I gave myself the 1.0 but forgot to give it to you!
156 7/1/2020 10:34:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Brian,
I think I got 30 hits and you got 20. So you will flip one of the Indian Corps, but 15 Army takes 24 of the 30 hits and is eliminated.
23 NAF would then need to make an Emergency Air Move, as Mandalay fell. Does that make sense?
155 7/1/2020 9:57:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Ah, right you are, flip 15 army and the Indian Army that came in from Lashio. 23AF will stay in Mandalay. Back to you to confirm retreat (I don't 100 percent remember where your ground units came from) and any PBM.
154 7/1/2020 9:45:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Brian,
Recheck that, I think we both got 1x on ground combat. You may have been looking at the A/N table. Ground combat is murder in this game!

This event ends a US inter-service rivalry. Flip the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. Bonus: In addition the Allied player immediately receives 3 Chinese ground and 1 Allied air replacement steps that must be used immediately (cannot be saved) on in supply units. Allied air units can be in the air units in China box. In addition, the Allies may immediately construct the Jarhat Trans Route for no cost. If Jarhat already constructed then either Ledo or Imphal may be constructed. Remove from play if used as an event.

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.
