158 6/27/2020 4:03:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Let me think a bit. Pretty one sided. I have been in ISR the whole game and you not a single card. The Japanese playing the first 3 turns in ISR wipes out any chance they have to win a PW victory and there is no way I can put any pressure on the allies. It is pretty much a turkey shoot at this point. It's just a matter of how well and fast you can shoot the turkeys.

112 6/23/2020 10:41:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hey Dave,
Itís really early, and I had a really good hand. That is only the first irreplaceable air unit you lost, so hang in there!
Please check SOPAC, and tell me if you agree with R&R
111 6/23/2020 10:24:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Miss on both sides. No PBM for me. Go ahead and up date the file with losses and your PBM. I will make a play tomorrow. This is likely to not be a test of your attrition strategy as the Japanese has been playing with one hand tied behind their back the whole game and likely one of those that is decided by other factors.
