I will do my PBM now (out of order) to save time.

*5108 (Midway): BB Nagato moves to 4415 (Eniwetok)
* 5108 (Midway): BB Hiei moves to 4415 (Eniwetok)
* 5210: CV Akagi moves to 4415 (Eniwetok)
* 5207: CV Shokaku moves to 4017 (Truk)
* 4908: CV Soryu moves to 4415 (Eniwetok)

For your PBM I assume that you will do the following:

* 5308: [CV Enterprise] moves to 5808 (Oahu)
* 5308: CV Lexington moves to 5808 (Oahu)
* 5108 (Midway): [CA New Orleans] moves to 5808 (Oahu)
* 5708 (Kauai): 7AF LRB moves to 5808 (Oahu)

Please change it if you want to.

That just leaves the 7AF in Midway. It was not activated so it must try to do an Emergency Air Move.

Rule 8.32 states:

If there is a friendly airfield within normal or extended range, the air unit is placed, not moved, to that location. If more than one airfield meets this condition, the owning player chooses the airfield to which the units are moved. If no friendly airfield is within range then the air units are eliminated. An air unit may use its parenthesized extended range for Emergency Air Movement, even if it participated in a battle.

The only place within range is the Air Ferry in 5408. this is a special type of feature. Rule 8.35 explains the Air Ferry:

8.35 Air Ferry in Hex 5408
The airfield in this hex represents the ability of Allied air units (only) to use this location as an airfield for “landing leg” increment purposes when moving on to another location. At no time may an air or ground unit end its move in this hex.

So the 7AF cannot end its Emergency movement on the Air Ferry.

So this means that there is no eligible airfield within range for the 7AF. So under rule 8.32 the 7AF is eliminated.

* 5108 (Midway): 7AF Air is eliminated

File up for your review and then next card.

Japanese flexing their muscles in the Pacific.

Here is your move for the Log:

* 5808 (Oahu): CV Enterprise moves to 5308
* 5808 (Oahu): [CA New Orleans] moves to 5108 (Midway)


So we have a big battle at Midway!!

One thing before we start - 7AF LRB can't stop at the Air Ferry - it is not a permanent airfield (this will be important later on)

* 5408 (Air Ferry): 7AF LRB moves to 5708 (Kauai)
James Strong (Japan) measured range from 5708 (Kauai) to 5108 (Midway): Hexes

It can participate in the battle from the airfield at Kauai.

You can roll for intel or play a card. Otherwise it is just the ground battle.

I have +4 for air and naval but -2 for mixed terrain, overall that is +2 DRM. I need to roll a 1-9 to get a 1.0x result or higher. I I roll a 0, that is only a 0.5x result and the Dutch unit will survive.

36 4/4/2021 5:52:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi - Tjilatjap would be good place for it - unfortunately there is a JP ZOI covering the Port and also covering Soerabaya so there is no way for supply to get into Tjilatjap or Soerabaya.

(The Dutch Air unit cannot use its AZOI to allow ABDA to be placed because the Dutch air unit is not in supply yet.)

You can play ABDA but the only eligible Port at the moment is in Kendari.

I hope this explanation makes sense.

35 4/4/2021 5:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi -

In order to cross land, the supply route must enter land at a friendly port and leave at a friendly port.

The supply cannot get to Tarakan because the the sea lanes are all blocked and there are no friendly ports in Asia available.

Even if supply could get to Tarakan, it can't get from Tarakan to Singapore because Sinkawang is not a port.

34 4/4/2021 5:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message You are right, because it cannot actually arrive to Tarankan the supply line. I did put my HQ in Tjalajap

33 4/4/2021 5:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi, My Malaya HQ I believe can trace to the East via Tarankan
32 4/4/2021 4:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi I see it.

For ABDA - it cannot be placed in Australia. The Card text says it must be placed in a port in the Islands of Java, Borneo, Celebes, or Sumatra in DEI.

You can put it in Kendari if you want - or you can do something else.

Also, even with the Malaya air unit defending its own supply line, there is no way for supply to reach the Malaya HQ from the map edge. You can see that there are JP ZOI's blocking the sea lanes to Singapore.

So Singapore is OOS at the moment!

Back to you to reconsider your first move.

26 4/3/2021 7:16:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message (Also it would need to be escorted by a naval unit because there is a JP naval unit in the Battle Hex)

:)
25 4/3/2021 7:15:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message SL brigade in Leyte cannot perform AA into Soerabaya as there are un-neutralised EZOI's in the AA path.

It could move to Manila or Singapore or I can return it to Leyte?

15 4/3/2021 6:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Don't forget to roll for intelligence condition first.

The EC Value of the KONDO card is 7 and I moved into your ZOI to that is +2. This means that only a roll of "9" can be a surprise attack.

Atacck A: JP32, US2. I do as you. First dice is attacker, second defender
13 4/3/2021 6:34:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message They are in the discard pile now.

There is a way that we can put them back in the deck so that you can have the chance to draw them gain next turn!

(No need to worry about it now but remind me to fix it before the end of the turn.)

You can do your intel roll now.
12 4/3/2021 6:31:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Yes - that is bad luck.

Allied submarine cards are nasty for the JP in the early turns!!
11 4/3/2021 6:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message The default draw is "7". You need to click the pull-down menu and change it to "5" before you hit "Draw Cards".

The way I prefer to play is that the Reaction Player rolls for intelligence/plays an intel card and then if they activate any reaction units, then they move and do the combat and their Reaction PBM and then update the log and vassal.

If it is surprise or if they don't wish to activate any units, then the Offensive Player does the combat and his PBM and updates the Vassal log.

This is the most efficient way to keep the game moving.

I always roll the attacker dice first and then the defender dice. If the result of combat is automatic, I don't roll a dice for that side.

Back to you!!

1 4/3/2021 3:24:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi Alfonso,

I read your beautiful review in BGG.

I see that you are involved in one game as the Japanese. I wonder are you interested to play another 1942 campaign this time as the Allies? I am in UTC +10 (a Melbourne Australia).

I would take the Historical Hand and you can choose ABDA if you wish.

If you accept, please send me your first Emergency Naval Moves and I can set up the game and play my first card!

Best regards and happy gaming

James
