77 2/18/2021 10:50:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Er, scrap, not scrape
76 2/18/2021 10:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Nauru is not a port, so 3SN needs to use an ASP unless it moves origin > destination with a CA, CL or APD.

Can you make these few corrections in a follow on file to your last one and send it to me? The reason I ask you to do so is that you will want to decide which unit to move instead of 31A. Or you can scrape your naval plan and move with all Army units.

Hope you are OK with this suggestion.
75 2/18/2021 10:43:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Nick, I apologize for sending the wrong file. I forwarded the correct file just now. However, it might be better if we just continued play from your last file.

A couple of corrections to note in that one. First 8M was not eliminated. It returned to Oahu. If the covering naval gets eliminated, the ground forces return to point of origin. See rule 9.32,"If the Reaction player is the winner, Offensives ground units that entered the hex by Amphibious Assault do not take part in the ground battle and must later conduct post-battle movement out of the hex."

Second, you are under ISR and cannot activate navy and army units on the same card play. Here is the rule on that, "14.2 Japanese Inter-Service Rivalry
If Japanese Inter-Service rivalry is in effect the following conditions prevail:
A. An HQ cannot activate both army and naval units in the same offensive or in reaction to the same offensive.
B. The Japanese can only use one half (round up) of their total amphibious shipping points while this condition persists."
74 2/18/2021 4:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #63: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

After the sinking of Miss whats happening to X M? Surely is sunk unescorted
71 2/14/2021 6:13:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message - A few mistakes there. Please allow me to correct them.
- In a reaction move, per rule 7.26 on page 14, "All units that the Reaction player activates must participate in a declared battle."
- So, have to return to previous locations for 22AF, 8AD, 31A, 24AF and 3SN.

* 3814 (Guam): [22 AF] moves to 2813 (Manila/Corregidor)
* 3416 (Palau Islands): 8 AD moves to 2915 (Davao)
* 4715 (Kwajalein): [31st Army] moves to 3813 (Saipan/Tinian)
* 4716 (Namu): [24 AF] moves to 4715 (Kwajalein)
* 4719 (Nauru): 3 SN Bde moves to 4715 (Kwajalein)

- Regarding the ASP marker, for the Vassal module, the position of ASP marker denotes the amount allowed during the turn. In this case, Allies get 4. Returning to 4 spot on Strat Record Track.
* Strategic Record Track (2): Allied ASP Marker moves to Strategic Record Track (4)
- Take a look at the marker. It shows "2/4" meaning I have used 2 of the 4 allowed ASP's. I marked this during my turn. To denote used ASP's, right click on the marker and you'll see the controls. Ctrl+A and Ctrl+S increment/decrement used ASP's.

- Now, for the battle, looks like my little invasion is going to get stomped.
- Battle [A], A/N: A7 vs J35
- Allies 1x, 0hits
- Japanese 1x, 35 hits
- Mississippi sunk
- AA does not occur. Marines will return to Hawaii in PBM

- Reaction player conducts PBM first. I presume you will return to Kure. You can adjust during your card turn.

* 4600 (Attu/Kiska): [BB Mississippi] is eliminated
* 4600 (Attu/Kiska): M Brigade moves to 5808 (Oahu)
* 4501: CV Junyo moves to 3407 (Kure)
* 4600 (Attu/Kiska): [CA Mogami], BB Nagato moves to 3407 (Kure)

Sorry, I performed my PBM before I did yours. No matter in this case.

- I think that's it

So you are saying that despite this i can't intervene to Woodlark - correct?

My file is coming to you
65 2/14/2021 12:01:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Er, I mean unless you want to roll INSTEAD of playing a reaction card for changing the intel condition.
64 2/14/2021 11:59:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Special Reaction, rule 7.27. The reaction player creates the battle by rolling the die.

If you have a reaction card to change the intel condition, you can play it unless you want to roll for the intel condition first. Per my earlier statement, some reaction cards can be played after the intel dr.
63 2/14/2021 11:15:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I am not sure i fully understand.

First of all how can you theoretically have 2 battle hexes by playing an OC card?

If i have an intercept card Can i play it?

Secondly what is special reaction? I cant find it

61 2/14/2021 8:40:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Also note that failing the special reaction roll means Woodlark is not a battle hex, so the only battle to react to is in Attu.
60 2/14/2021 8:37:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Note that certain reaction cards, such as Japanese card #13, allow play of the card after making an intel dr. In this case, the card text takes precedence over the normal procedure for intel condition.
59 2/14/2021 8:29:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message So, you've made two dr's, the one for the sub card, which although out of sequence, can stand, and another one, which we will apply to special reaction, following the sequence.

Next, you should either play an appropriate reaction card or make an intelligence dr.
58 2/14/2021 8:26:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Here's the sequence after declaring battle hexes, see page 13 and follow the sequence:

Step 6, Special Reaction
Step 7, Determine intelligence condition, If you don't play a card you roll the dice
Step 8, Reaction activation
Step 9, Play attack reaction cards, here's where you would roll for the sub
57 2/14/2021 1:19:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message This is a failure I think so battle proceeds

I cannot react cant I?

Or can I react by playing an INTERCEPT card (if I have any?)

Play during an offensive before the beginning of the combat phase against any active Allied naval units or against any active Allied naval unit, if no battle hexes were declared during the Offensive. On a die roll of: 0-4: Allies lose one naval step (Japanese choice; can eliminate a unit). 5-9: No Effect. Draw one Strategy Card.

51 2/13/2021 9:24:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Doh. Told you I would make some gaffes. Thanks for catching. Please return 1M to Cairns and move 2M from Guadalcanal to Espiritu.

Regarding my card as an OC, correct there is one battle hex at Attu. If you successfully SR at Woodlark, it becomes a battle hex too, but not one I could have done as part of my offensive. If it does become a battle hex, I believe 2 MAW could participate per 7.27, page 15, "Any air and carrier units assigned to cover the landing in the hex where the new battle hex was created will take part in the battle in that hex."
50 2/13/2021 6:26:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Sorry Dave some questions:

1M on CAIRNS - which HQ activated this unit? Surely not CPac!

Potentially you may have 2 battles if I react in Attu and Woodlark. But by playing this card as Ops you can only have 1 battle

Finally do I roll a dice with -2?
49 2/13/2021 3:54:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message - OK, here we go

* 4600 (Attu/Kiska): M Brigade joins Battle A

- Woodlark AA with Marine SF is a Special Reaction hex. You roll for special reaction, if successful, roll for reaction.
- Although, I'm not sure if reaction for Attu is rolled separately from Woodlark.
- If it's only one roll, then you would get the -2drm reaction roll because I moved through your AZOI at Woodlark.
- Can you read up on that? I will too.
- Back to you for SR and reaction.

Do you mind resolvimg step by step the combats so that i follow?


32 2/9/2021 11:03:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message One more thing. To make ACTS logs easier, cut and paste the vassal log into your ACTS messages.
31 2/9/2021 10:58:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I think you're reaction moves 22/23/27 look good otherwise. I presume you are all right with vassal?

To mark battles, select the battle hex marker (left click) and type the letter of the battle.

To have units "join/leave" battle, select the unit (left click) and type the letter. Alternatively, select the unit, use keyboard Shift+b (join/leave battle) and type letter of battle.

My understanding of the flow of moves is that attacker sets up card as I did. Reaction player does his movement, rolls dice for battles, makes battle results, makes assumed retreats, which opponent can correct later and sends move back so that attacker cen do Post-Battle movement.

So, if you are cool with all that, go ahead and do your movement, perform battles etc.
30 2/9/2021 10:47:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message oops, didn't mean to make a die roll. Just ignore the roll, but read the message.

22 2/8/2021 9:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Yes, you can activate 3 units (2 for the cards OC rating + 1 for HQ's efficiency rating.

21 2/8/2021 9:34:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message On Chinese 66A reaching Lashio, it is my understanding that the transport route from Kunming is a permanent map feature.

The transport routes to be constructed are Jarhat, Ledo and Imphal. See rule 13.77.

If you want to read up on Burma Road, see rule 13.78. I reviewed it myself, because like you I was wondering about the "special event" wording on the map.

18 2/8/2021 9:27:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Correction on Alaska. I found a specific reference in the scenario rules, pasted below. Looks like you'll get the PW point if you control it at end of GT5.

17.38 I: The US Political Will stands at 6 PW (Ė1 VP), but Attu/ Kiska (hex 4600) has been occupied by the Japanese starting with the National Status Phase of game turn 3 (two turns at the start of the scenario). If the Allies do not control Attu/Kiska at the conclusion of game turn 5, as per 16.42, the Allies would lose one PW. Note: Attu/Kiska is not a named location and does not count toward PoW calculations.

One more question

How Chinese 66 th army reached Lassio? Is the road constructed ? This is a special event

Sorry I need to have the game remembered I am rusty
16 2/8/2021 9:20:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message We are playing the 1943 3-turn scenario. Although the 1942 3-turn scenario is the default for this round, Jeffrey said if both players agree, any scenario can be played. Since you started the 1943 scenario, I assumed you wanted to play it, which is fine with me.
15 2/8/2021 9:17:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Let's see PW is 6 with four countries surrendered and Alaska occupied.

PW is +8 at 1942 start
four countries surrendered, 8 - 4 = 4

Allies cards #1 and #6 have been played for events per rules 17.35. We know they were events, because they were removed from play. Both cards give Allies +1 PW.

4 + 2 = 6

The kicker is Alaska occupation. It must be occupied for three consecutive turns to get -1 PW. Since 1943 begins with Attu occupied, we assume it was captured in turn 4. Therefore, Japanese won't get the point until the Political Phase of turn 6.

10 2/4/2021 9:02:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Nick, am reminded that there is an error in the Vassal setup for 1943. The 31A in Saipan should start at reduced strength. If you don't mind, and have not completed your move file, please make that change during your move.

Thanks
