84 4/14/2021 12:24:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Everything looks good, but I think 1 MAW needs to go to Gili Gili, as Cape York was not in supply. Do you want me to place it there when I place JP reinforcements?
83 4/13/2021 11:39:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Hi James,
Don't see file in Drop Box yet, please upload. Also, thank you for your kind words, but words without actions are not appreciated. I'm very disappointed by your treatment of the 15th Army

44 4/6/2021 11:27:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Agree with your assessment, and one of the main reasons I go with the 42 Campaign..
43 4/5/2021 8:05:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi yes,

I'm note sure about the '42 scenario. It plays very differently to the '42 campaign. It's basically an all out assault by the JP.

Also unlike the '42 campaign - there is not enough time for early good or bad card draw to balance out - so card draw seems to play an outsized role.

Anyhow. It is quick and brutal so that's always good!

You are obviously an experienced and highly skillful JP player.

Playing as the AP against someone such as you with the Historical Hand who knows what they are doing is about as hard a challenge as this game gives!!

I think the sequence of moves turned your AZOI's off, so don't you lose the AZOI modifier for intel?
Also, don't apologize for the other game, I'm happy to have my mistakes identified. Also, agree, it's a brilliant design. Have you played For The People?

Over to you...
16 4/3/2021 6:27:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Mark H is a genius in the way he sets up the choices you have to make.

South Seas HQ gives you the extra activation - but it can't quite reach far enough West to activate any of the IJN air units that can fly to Bangkok and attack Rangoon at full strength, nor can it activate 15th Army to go at Kwai Bridge North.

So if you want to go after Rangoon/CBI on Card One then you need to "pay" 1 activation and take South HQ for 8.

It's sheer brilliance in design>

:)

15 4/3/2021 6:21:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Oh - Sorry! I didn't mean to spoil the other game.... :(

I find I get things wrong frequently! Either we are all getting old or EoTS is super hard!

I love it though!
14 4/3/2021 6:17:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Thanks dude, we are re-starting. I'm gettin' stupid as the years roll on...
13 4/3/2021 1:09:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Just one more thing....

I noticed in your current ACTS game against Dave Knoyle that you opened as JP with KONDO onto South Seas for the 2+7 activations (and why not!) and then you activated 21 AF, 23AF and 2AD for the offensive.

You may not have noticed but those three units all start outside of the 12-hex activation range of South Seas HQ, so strictly speaking you couldn't activate them unless you chose South HQ - which only gives 7+1 activations using KONDO.

Not a big deal but I thought I might just mention it so that you don't have the frustration of having to redo any of your opening moves against me!!
12 4/2/2021 11:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi - No I don't know Phil.

Yes the whole East Coast got drenched. Melbourne was not so badly affected as we are a long way South and therefore somewhat less impacted by big moisture systems coming down from the tropics.

11 4/2/2021 11:36:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I sent you a DropBox link for the Vassal Logs. ENM's are loaded in.

You will see in the log that I suggest using the Strategic Warfare marker to track VP's in real-time
(That marker plays no part in the 1942 game and even though most of the VP's don't score until the end of the Scenario, it's helpful to know what the "in-game" VP position is as sometimes its hard to keep track).

Because they start at -3, I have put the marker on the War In Europe track at -3. Once you get rolling and you get the live VP total above +3, we can switch to using the PW track (up to +10)

I hope that all makes sense.

10 4/2/2021 11:31:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Brilliant - cant wait to see what you have in store for me!

I am across the date line from you, so its currently 2:30pm Saturday. Tomorrow morning for you will late Saturday night/early hours of Sunday for me.

My kids loved Melbourne! Nice to see you guys getting some drought relief, but maybe too much. Do you know Phil Watkins? Also big Aussie gamer, very nice guy!

7 4/2/2021 11:18:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Victory Point Levels:

Allied Decisive Victory: Japanese have 2 or less victory points.

Allied Tactical Victory: Japanese have 3 to 5 victory points.

Japanese Tactical Victory: Japanese have 6-9 victory points.

Japanese Decisive Victory: Japanese have 10 or more victory points.

Because there is literally no tomorrow after the end Game Turn 4, the JP can be super aggressive.

PW starts at 8 = which is -3VP's so the JP in fact needs to pick up 9 VP's overall to win a Tactical Victory plus make sure to hold no less than 12 Resource Hexes by the end of Game Turn 4 to avoid auto-loss condition.

Should be good fun!

6 4/2/2021 11:11:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hey Robert,

Eugene, Oregon. I have never been but from what I know that is a nice part of the world.

I am in Melbourne Australia.

Pacific Time works out well for playing as it is currently just past 2:00pm for me.

Yes, this is the one year scenario (3 Game Turns) with Mark's revised Victory Point Hand as per what I sent you).

Yes I offered to play a Full campaign game with Kirill - but this one is just something short and sweet to test out the rebalanced VP count.

If you are ok with all of that please draw the Historic and and play your first card!!








5 4/2/2021 11:07:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hello,
Nice to meet you. Hey, is this a 1 year scenario, or are we doing the whole war starting on Turn 2? Are you playing Kirill in another game? I think he mentioned you earlier today.
Look forward to playing!
I live in Eugene, Oregon with my wife of 1200 years. Im retired, and enjoy long walks in the woods, and drinking. Well, really just drinking....
4 4/2/2021 10:15:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Here are the revised Victory Conditions:

17.27 Victory Conditions

Automatic Victory: If the Japanese do not control at least 12 of the 14 Resource hexes by the conclusion of game turn 4, they lose the game and the Allies win an automatic victory. If an automatic victory has not occurred then the Japanese player gains victory points for the following conditions at the conclusion of game turn 4. Victory points are assessed at the end of game turn 4 unless otherwise indicated.

For Tournament play: A hex counts as captured for victory points only if some non-HQ unit would be in supply in it. If these criteria are not fulfilled, the hex counts as being held by the player who had control of it at the start of the scenario.

A. If China surrenders receive a bonus 5 victory points; if no surrender then 1 VP per box inclusive left of the Stable Front box, maximum VPs for this condition is 5 VPs.

B. For closing the Burma Road, 1 victory point.
C. For isolating Townsville from Oahu, e.g., no supply line can be drawn between the two locations, 5 victory points.

D. For controlling each hex of Northern India, 1 victory point per hex.

E. For India Unrest or Strikes, 1 victory point (awarded on the last game turn).

F. For India Unstable, Revolts, or Surrender; 2 victory points (not cumulative with E; awarded on last game turn).

G. For Control of Australian Mandates, 1 victory point.

H. For each box US Political Will is 5 or below, 1 victory point per box. Example a US Political Will of 5 equals 1 victory point.

I. For each box US Political Will is 6 or above, minus 1 victory point per box. Example a US Political Will of 7 equals 2 victory points.

J. For the capture Kauai or Hawaii, 1 victory point, for each hex, if controlled and occupied at the end of any game turn, but only once per hex per game.

K. For the capture Oahu, 3 victory points if controlled and occupied at the end of any game turn, but only once per game.

L. For the capture of Midway or Wake, 1 victory point for each hex if controlled and occupied at the end of game turn 4.

M. For control of Attu/Kiska 1 VP.

N. For control of Dutch Harbor 2 VP.

1 4/2/2021 10:11:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi Robert,

I have seen that you are pretty active on ACTS.

I don't know if you have time but I am keen to playtest the rebalanced VP table for the 1942 scenario against an experienced player per Mark Herman's request:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2598635/revisions-1942-victory-points-4th-printing

I would prefer to use a minimum "12 Resource Hex" auto threshold as this seems more balanced.

If you had time and were interested, please let me know.

kind regards

James




Can I interest you in a quick game?

You can play Japan with the Historical hand and I will take ABDA and try to defend as the Allies.
