42 4/4/2021 8:24:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Congratz on your superior card drawing ability using ACTS.
41 4/4/2021 8:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I actually have a WIE card but when you put the SEAC HQ OOS which I am sure you can its game over.
40 4/4/2021 8:22:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Yes; When the Japanese draw the perfect hand in turn 2 its over. There is nothing to do to fix that situation other than laugh and start again. It doesn't happen that often but the historical hand does increase the odds of it happening.
39 4/4/2021 8:20:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message I also have an ISREnder that I can use to recycle one of the big ones.....
Want to restart, I agree, this one was brutal?
38 4/4/2021 8:04:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message BTW I pretty much knew what was coming when you massed the fleet at Muri with the first card but there is absolutely nothing the allies can do to stop it. Its one of those outlier games where one side says congratz on your card drawing ablility.
37 4/4/2021 7:59:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message BH C results 1X for J eliminates the 2 allied units. 1/2X for A is a miss.

No file over to you for PBM.

Like I said in my previous post if you have another good card and of course the tsugi card the games over. A perfect hand for the Japanese is not even worth going forward as the allies.

33 4/4/2021 7:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Well shit why don't you draw the perfect hand. It looks like I will be resigning if you have one more good one. That is the thing about the historical hand if the Japanese draw a perfect hand the game is over. If they draw a shitty hand in both turns 2 and 3 the Japanese are toast in that direction. Seems like the only games are playable are those where they draw an average hand.

This game appears not to be one of those.
