739 9/2/2020 12:10:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Yes, Pelele with its 9 activations would have given you a good chance. I was expecting a heavy hitter like that as the last card.

It was a very intense game. I felt in control more or less until my greed (trying to minimize your chances of PoW) made me allow you to isolate my units in Burma. I should have attacked there myself earlier in that turn to keep the threat up in that theatre. Then I could only try to contain you and wait for the one PW point, which never came. The last couple turns I just hoped that you would not draw enough offensive events to kill all those units I still had. I got lucky there.

Thanks for the game. It was fun! And good luck for you too.

If it came to it my last desperate gasp would of been to evacuate Ominato of ground units in hopes you couldn't resist retaking it. That would create a battle hex and allow me to play my one Reaction card to get one final draw. Don't know if you would of went for it but seeing what I would of drawn just for fun.
733 9/2/2020 10:50:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message That was quite a game. Interesting how seemingly small decisions can come back and haunt you. I had Manchuria same turn as you had Tojo and I believe I could of played it last but thought "what are the odds he's holding Tojo as his last card this early." Turns out 100%.

First half of the game you were one draw away from winning . Second half it was me crossing my fingers for Manchuria.

Overall key draw for me was the one that put you into ISR for the remainder of the game. Without that when I got it making PoW would likely not of been possible. So many little things play into the result.

I'll report result. That was a fun and tense game. Good luck going forward.
732 9/2/2020 7:54:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message That last turn was quite a slaughter of ground units. My ground rolls were too lucky, but with your cards I don't believe that that made a large difference.

695 8/14/2020 3:28:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Had a dead vehicle to deal with today.

I attempted to send you the reply from the GM but somehow managed to delete it instead of copying it. Even for myself. Egads.

I would have been surprised if this was ruled the other way. Theyd have to include a magnifying glass in the box with the paper map.

I think once dice are rolled backtracking is prohibited. Creates a bit of a mess otherwise as to what to keep.

Yours was a good move and I dont think this will affect the outcome of the game at any rate.

I can pretty much successfully land anywhere so units not at home will likely be OoS very soon. Of course you may have Halsey so nothing is certain.

Anyway, enjoy your trip. Should be plenty of time to finish this when you get back. I'm not going anywhere.

694 8/14/2020 10:22:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message I will be hiking in France the next two weeks- I might be able to do moves, but I am not sure.
693 8/13/2020 3:16:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message I think the rule is: An ocean connection across a hexside is open if there exists an open water to open water connection anywhere on the hexside.

There are plexty hexes where part of the hexside has unplayable ocean across open ocean on some parts of the hexside and open across open in other parts. 3307/3308 and 3704/3705 are examples nearby. The only difference here is that the open ocean connection is very small.
692 8/12/2020 1:36:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Please do. I am kind of busy today.
691 8/12/2020 11:10:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message Surprised this hasn't come up before. Now I'm curious how it works.

I'm not seeing how 3306 would be allowed to Kure but 3406 not. The land abuts the hexside at 3406. There's no shaded space between the land and the hexside.

Davao S strikes me as just an artifact of Davao SW being shaded. No good graphic way to do this without catching a bit of the adjacent hex.

If it's not the hexside that's unplayable but based on how the land is drawn on the map there's a lot of pointless shading on the map.

3220 for example.

You sending a query or you want me to?
690 8/12/2020 8:21:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message The situation with Davao and Hex 2916 is similar.
689 8/12/2020 8:09:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message It is shaded so you can't move from 3406 to Kure.

... and it is not shaded north and south of the island of Shikoku to allow sea movement to Osaka.

If we settle on "my" version (we should get an official answer) , I would be willing to roll back your last move.
688 8/12/2020 8:02:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message I've always thought of hexsides as either playable or unplayable.

If one can move through the hairline space at the vertex here there'd seemingly be no reason to shade that area since it would block nothing.

3306 and 3406 could both move to Kure.

Be good to get a ruling. Be even better if I could remember it a few months from now :)
687 8/12/2020 7:49:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Either way, one of us did his last move on wrong assumptions, so we should look for a good solution and/or get Chris involved.
686 8/12/2020 7:31:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message abd looking closer there is also a sea connection between Kure and Osaka, since Shikoku is an island.
685 8/12/2020 7:29:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Well, my plan relied on the connection between Pusan and Kure existing. I see water next to the 3-hex-vertex, both in the online map and in my boxed map.

But you are right about Osaka. I missed the fact that I need to enter hex 3408.


684 8/12/2020 6:36:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message I think Pusan is out of supply. Looks like the N and NW hexsides are unplayable.

And there's no way to reach Osaka without going through my Azoc.

670 8/11/2020 7:52:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #66: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
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.

OC: 4 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
Playing on Battle at Pusan with [10 AD] to foil the landing by killing the Shangri La. Rule wise I am not sure whether the Marines receive a hit or not.
