239 9/17/2020 1:58:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message I think overall, without the T6 fleet, I would have been completely stopped. It does mean that those WiE cards for the JP are critical to be played.

And with "normal" rolls throughout the game I would have hard-pressed even with T6 fleet, if you could have maintained sufficient air coverage.

I think I also agree, that if the JP moves Comb Fleet, they really need to keep it in supply. The path through Woleai should remain clear as long as they have AZOI over the HQ. I still slightly debate the value of that move. Particularly with a skilled player, you're less likely to be able to strike with your limited ground forces deep. It's certainly a valid strategy, but it did lose you a card and didn't pan out. Not sure it is worth playing it as a threat. Yes, I knew it was an option for you, but didn't "hold me back". I didn't leave the area until later, but ships and ground in that area are still within good 2 Ops, and definitely 3 Ops ranges.

I did consider striking either Hollandia, Wewak or Kavieng in the end. Palau wasn't really on the table... the 9-18 made it less attractive... same as Truk for the most part. When I was working out my PBM for the previous turn, I was trying to get everyone within S Pac to get an extra activation to pin that last ship and guarantee the two landings to give me a buffer, but was more worried that you would strike with your combined armies against Biak and make it for me to have to absolutely take two. I dunno... it was close most of the way through the game, which is how it should go.

Great game though!
238 9/17/2020 1:41:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Ah, I see. I can't activate any of those ground units anyway. Nah, the plan was flawed then. It was never going to work, unless your last card wasn't an MI card which I was pretty sure that wasn't true.

I would have needed to hold Admiralty Is and that would have been enough to get to a northern map hex. So I should have moved the Truk army to Admiralty Islands and 19th to Madang. Then it is a poor dice roll to march into Lae with Tainan Air in support.

I figured I was doomed anyway after I failed that last Intel check and you slaughtered nearly all my air. I thought you would AA to Palau and Wewak and then pile onto Tainan Air to kill it. Basically putting me out of the game the same way (through supply). I suppose there was the same slim chance of me surviving either way.

A good game though. Even with all your spectacular rolling there was enough opportunity for the JP to hold on till the end.
237 9/17/2020 1:27:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Wow... I didn't even consider the Supply status of your HQs...

I'll pretend South Seas is still in the game and that you can actually activate things through my AZOI...

Pretty much pile on Rabaul... particularly the retreating 1M Div.
236 9/17/2020 1:07:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Something just occurred to me. CombFleet HQ itself is out of supply because it can't reach a northern map hex. And I can't activate [CA Nachi] from South Seas and move him to react to Truk.

Which means, by the Truk rolls, you'll land. Which kills both my HQs and that ends the game.

I knew that was a risk, but there wasn't anything for it really to have any shot at all at taking back a port space. Do your PBM anyway (assuming you got turned away at Truk). I want to see if the wild gamble would have payed off. =)

Not sure if there are easier targets at the moment. I take back my previous assessment, you have sufficient defenses that this is not a done deal.

Still with this, I'm ok with whatever you throw on the pile to defend A/N, that just weakens you long term. It's all about the ground battle... and this is sort of what I was trying to avoid... but this is probably the best opportunity to hit Rabaul. Just could go badly for either one of us... or both...

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).

Shit. This is where things fall apart.

With my 32, I will flip BB Washington and CV Wasp

After flipping BB Yamato and 21AF, you will have 34 left. I'll let you decide. But whatever it is, I'm sure it will be enough to land the 1st marines.
