240 1/8/2021 2:47:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message A well conceived plan that wasn't rewarded as deserved. But I had about 50% of success chances, including the reaction die roll, so I won't complain that much. I'm experiencing situations where I fail key targets with 80% or more and in those situations I develop very negative feelings towards this game (which under many perspectives is great indeed). More in the other game I'm playing than in this one, just to clarify... even if for JP going ISR at the very first turn played and never come back is heavily conditioning.

So nett 4 at the moment. I have corrected the results.

You are correct, I am still in a reasonable position, Burma will be hard to take. Therefore India is reasonably secure.

China could be a problem and I need to watch out for PoW.

As for resigning... I had the same in mind after those horrible combos of dice and cards during Turn 2 and 3 (Turn 4 wasn't so favourable for JP too...), I think better if we try to go on with such a friendly game, which grants to achieve more experience.

192 1/2/2021 12:08:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Oh, bother - you are correct. I had missed that.

Now tempted to just resign as I will lose 2 Progress of the War this turn due to Alaska (totally impossible to counter from a Turn 2 capture) , plus this extra one. Having to capture 4 spaces in Turn 4, especially when there is nowhere to attack by land easily is a serious handicap.

Memo to self - think twice about Edwin Booz if received on Turns 2-4

Oh well - I shall plough on and remember this for another game ...
191 1/2/2021 9:00:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message > Two surprise attack cards and the ability to play them with no response is nasty.

I was afraid (in fact, pretty sure...) that having pulled out 9 cards this turn, including extra ones, you were keeping one surprise card hidden, but, honestly, I'd never have thought you could have got two of them...

I have an issue related your claim that you've made PoW. This turn you have got 3 of your targets, correct? As a matter of fact, according to 16.47, you should have got 4, since "4" is the number of you ASPs, not "3", after you've played the Edwin Booz card in Turn 2 (Journal entry #59) so getting one more of them. That's why playing that card early could be a doubled-edged sword for AP. Let me know if you agree.

As for my ENM, CL Tenryu shifted to Eniwetok, I submit no map and you can go with EOT routines, and Reinf phase of the new one.

179 1/2/2021 5:21:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Just to pint out something that is not really relevant here but could be in the future. According to 8.21, you can't suspend naval movement of a stack (or, as in such a case, of a single unit) and then finish it after having performed another one. Here you stopped Wasp at Ponape hex in order to provide air umbrella to N. Carolina, then completed its movement to Eniwetok. As a matter of fact, you could have left it in Ponape allowing the transit of the battleship and fight with Wasp from Ponape so no changes to combat odds, result and pbm, but keep it in mind for the future ;-)
