This event ends a Japanese inter-service rivalry. Flip the Japanese Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the Japanese Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. Bonus: If this card is played as an event, the Japanese have the option to discard a card of their choice and re-place it with any card from the discard pile (not those removed from play).

155 6/8/2020 2:02:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Hey... just reviewed this on the board instead of just reacting to the results in email.

You can only use one ASP for reaction. (8.45.A) 3 AUS is a full Corps which requires 2 ASP. This is not a valid move.

So, you technically only had 22 CF, doubled with the 9, will give you 44, which is not enough to wipe me totally... but still with my .5x result, I will have to retreat the reduced KOR Army.

You could move in the B Ind Div to get you to 50, but won't really help you as it's not enough to kill the KOR army too (need 60)... and it will give me something else to flip.

I'm happy to let you keep the rolls and move something else, as it really won't affect anything, but it wasn't QUITE as devastating... although, you can certainly follow up with the killing blow.... but be careful. CBI is where armies go to die...

Never sure if this is the right use for a card like this, but the shot at killing an irreplaceable air unit and maybe evening up the ground odds a little seems worth it.

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.

103 5/24/2020 8:37:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message I assume this has happened before in the tournament. Is there a standard way of handling the US player drawing too many cards?

If there is not, I would propose I roll a die to see which card I should not have drawn, discard it, then draw it manually the first time I get a "draw a card" event. It is a very slight advantage to me to know what that card will be, I guess. We can call it Engima!

Unless there is some "standard" way of handling this?

Allies are up first. Some things to consider.

1) You can't place into an unsupplied port/airfield and then make it in supply... no chaining AZOI to make it in supply... not sure if this is clear or not...

2) Definitely want to put your ANZAC HQ within range of your AUS forces. You've put the Kent out there... if you ever want to move him, ANZAC is the only way to do that.

3) Don't forget that taking a 1 hex island (like Attu/Kiska) requires a Marine to initiate the landing. You can land with an Army Corps too, but Army can't go alone.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Why Hollandia...

Mostly because I can apply an AZOI over Biak and from Lae also cover the rest of the New Guinea ports and airfields.

Essentially, in case if I choose to play my last card for FO, you can't place reinforcements into New Guinea. Particularly because you are getting the delayed reinforcements and the Turn 3 guys... It's more "denial" than something massively strategic. You're mostly pushed back to Australia.

You're up for your turn. And you have to emergency naval move the Kent.
