632 2/23/2021 12:53:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Hi Frank

Great game. It was definitely the most unique play out I've had. I've never been in a game with Australia surrendering or Japan not getting to max cards.

I'll report the results.

631 2/23/2021 9:25:00 AM May-Aug 1945 Allies Message I am throwing the towel. I believe there is not even a theoretical chance left. I congratulate you on a flawless defense.
I did not properly defend Teleo, Leyte and Hawaii and I did some unnecessary high risk moves that did not work out.
