159 5/27/2020 8:13:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Yeah, I like Victor Plans. It's a good card. Quite the web of pinning you've setup there. I think I'm more irritated by losing Palau than I am about the (potential) loss of Rabaul. At the very least, I should be able to shift around some units. Need to think about this one.

148 5/23/2020 9:53:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #43: 1 / Tojo Resigns: Moderates in Power
If the game turn is 1944 or later, this card must be played as an event otherwise it is a Japanese option to play as an event, an OC, or discard. Reduce US Political Will by two. The Allied Manchurian Invasion card's prerequisite has been met. Flip the game turn marker from its PM Tojo to its Tojo Resigns side as a reminder. RESHUFFLE: If this card is played as an OC or a discard, reshuffle the Japanese deck at the end of this game turn. This card may not be played as a Future Offensive. Remove from play if used as an event.

However, that last Offensive has some problems. The Burma road is closed with the fall of Rangoon, so there is no supply for those Chinese units (not within 4MP of a port).

I think you have to redo that last move.

93 5/2/2020 2:08:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hollandia was neutralized by CV Enterprise in Biak prior to R&R making it a valid target for units.

And yeah, I figured you had some event type card and I was kind of giving you the choice... take out ABDA in Kendari or do something that you wanted to do...

And as for Saipan... I might regret it, but we'll see...

Distance to:
Iwo: 5 hexes
Marcus: 4 hexes
Ulithi: 3 hexes
Palau: 5 hexes
Leyte: 8 hexes
Okinawa: 7 hexes

Worst case, you have to spend ops to neutralize it and I pull out after realizing that it is a failed play... would have likely done that in T3 if you hadn't taken down Manila.

And you have to spend ops to do this... which are ops you're not playing elsewhere...

Best case, it becomes a real thorn because you do ignore it and I scoop up central pacific islands and perhaps cut South HQ from the Home Islands and/or you lose places to hide/spread your fleet and I start pounding that.

It's a small investment for something that you simply cannot ignore and by not ignoring it, you aren't doing other things... And with Halsey in play, I have another HQ I can use.

In any case, let me know if you disagree with Hollandia, and you still need to do your R&R.
92 5/2/2020 12:49:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message In a larger sense, T2 for both of us was somewhat disappointing. The weakness of my opening hand meant that I was forced to choose between CBI and South Pac and I knew that whichever direction I chose I wouldn't get everything I wanted. So it really boiled down to choosing between a weak hold on Rangoon or a weak hold on New Guinea (after taking the Solomons).

Unfortunately for me, you ended up playing ABDA into Kendari which means that I couldn't attack Gili Gili and secure a better foothold there. What really hurt was the Skip Bombing play taking away a vital ASP point that I needed to take Gili Gili with the JP Marines in Wewak (a move I was planning on).

That and the fact that Allied subs hit on turn 3 really sucks. I haven't seen my hand yet, but hopefully it will be enough to keep things moving for the JP.


91 5/2/2020 12:42:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message 1 Maw can't be placed in Hollandia.

10.11: "Placement of a reinforcement cannot alter enemy ZOI to allow other placements in the same segment;"

That Saipan move is surprising. I think you may come to regret placing SW Pac HQ there.
