Thanks for the advice about HQs, I have to think about it. I had to concentrate my efforts on the Philippines right now, and did spend about all my cards there. It was a good turn for me, but with casualties I'm afraid the JP can't afford just to grab immediate defensive areas. Lot of fun though, I will see next turn !

264 8/30/2021 12:34:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Turn recap... you listened to my advice... and that is very unfortunate for me. =)

You had some great rolls/cards in there to really make me pay for investing in the Philippines and you played them well.

I will say that you did not move on Malaya or other areas (CBI), which is fine, because Philippines is where the fighting is at right now, but still something to keep in mind.

I will point out that if I had time to move and my 9NZ free to do so, I was going to attack South HQ. It is completely undefended and without an available Reaction ASP (or really unit due to ISR), it is your "weak point". Also, it is possible, but harder, to hit Comb Fleet. You do have intrinsic defense, but I might risk it with a 22-12 or two. If I win, you're in a VERY bad spot.

Point is, if I have AA units within 10-15 hexes of your HQ, you should have a ground unit covering them, or have one in reaction range over ground (2MP). Really a 9-12 on your HQ is almost a requirement.

But you kept me busy trying to keep Philippines in supply, so, I can't say that your actions were "wrong"... just "a friendly warning" about those HQs.

258 8/30/2021 11:56:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #61: 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.

Chris, I think AusAir is inactive and can't PBM to Morotaï. That might change your whole PBM.

I will transfer damage from Akagi to Soryu, so [Akagi] is back and Soryu is sunk. I will flip AusAir.

No file sent, I will let you psossibly amend your PBM before I do mine.

So, you do 16, which can flip "anything". I'll let you pick, but I think I know what you are going to choose.

I do 1x, which will flip the two CV (24LF) and the 26AF (10LF), and because I only have 3 air, I can't target the [22AF] at all. But I will eliminate the Akagi.

Message from Japanese:
About AA against unoccupied hex : yes, I saw the polemics in CSW.
The problem is at some point, wargames must have an ambition for accurate war ops simulation, otherwise they are just colourful chess games (and let's face it : M. Herman's designs are, for the most part, chess games). Hence I have no problem with this rule emphasizing that AZOIs are a manifestation of actual combats, but in this case someone has to explain me very slowly why a CV in a friendly port extends AZOI and permits AA within 2-hex without rolling the dice for casualties.

As for the "clarification" : funny to see the two PBM tournament's finalists needed this clarification. If these two guys don't know the rules, noone does.
