32 12/1/2020 6:05:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hi Mike - sorry for the delay in the game. Back in town now so things should pick up speed.

Regarding the combat - since the intel condition was surprise - the die roll failed - the attackers do damage prior to the defenders even rolling for damage - so in this case the defender is eliminated prior to them being able to damage the attackers -

PBM completed - file up and back to you

21 11/22/2020 1:06:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Return Strategy card to hand #42: 3 / Ichi-Go: China Offensive

Message from Japanese:
20 11/22/2020 11:07:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hi Mike -

Regarding your move - using a card for operations allows a max of 1 battle hex declared by the attacker. Gili Gili doesn't count as a battle hex since there are no Allied units in it, so that invasion could proceed, and you could still declare 1 battle hex.

To declare more than 1 battle hex you would have to play a military card as an event -

Also - 21AF attacks at range - it doesn't move into the hex it wishes to attack. It can attack Port Moresby from a 3 hex range at full strength.

If I play this card as an event and used Combined fleet as the HQ I could activate either army units or navy units and I would have 3+3 activations for 6 total activation
Is that correct ?
