75 9/17/2021 3:00:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #27: 1 / Operation Vengeance: The Death Of Yamamoto
Immediately remove the Japanese Yamamoto Combined Fleet HQ from its current hex location and replace it with the Japanese Ozawa Combined Fleet HQ in that location. Remove from play if used as an event.

71 9/17/2021 8:59:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message RE: Post combat movement - you probably want to send the Dutch air back to Tjil at least. Otherwise I can just send a carrier down there and put ABDA OOS....
70 9/17/2021 8:06:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message ACtually, I think I will play a card after your post-combat.

Let me know if you're going to move anything.
69 9/17/2021 8:03:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I'm going to flip the air -- you can't replace that.

I don't have any post-combat move. Then I'm going to pass, so go ahead with your third card.
68 9/17/2021 7:55:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I'll try to format my moves like you next time.
67 9/16/2021 5:55:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hey look, another 1 for the IJN.

You do 16 to me with a crit. You can flip Shokaku or 22nd Air. Probably the air, since that will drop my attack down to 24, which means (again) I won't do any damage back. Although even if you flip Shokakku instead, all I can do back is flip the Dutch CL, and who cares about that thing anyway?

This isn't quite as bad as your epic betrayal in VQ, but is definitely not good.

Battle B

Allies: 16+4
Jap: ??
65 9/16/2021 5:50:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message So with the +4 for the Ambush, that is a 8 for you, which is not a crit, so no damage to me.

I do 1/4 of 32 back, and again, no damage back to you. This is not going well.

I'm a little fuzzy on what the logistics value is but I think it's your EC logistics as my reaction didn't ahve one.

59 9/15/2021 8:37:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Oh, okay, did you post a file from your move?

56 9/7/2021 3:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #4: 1 / Arcadia Conference
This event ends a US inter-service rivalry. Flip the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. Bonus: The Allied player receives the ABDA HQ, which is place in any in supply port in Java, Borneo, Sumatra or Celebes. If no such port is available this HQ is removed from play for the remained of the game. Remove from play if used as an event.

ABDA -> tjilitjap.
55 9/7/2021 9:49:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message 3AD to Manila then, and 4AD to Miri (or just flip 4AD instead)
54 9/7/2021 6:14:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Ah. I totally misunderstood that. Air units are more powerful than I had thought.

Okay, flip 3AD and you can just tell me where to send it.
53 9/6/2021 9:53:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Ok, can you be more specific in your questions?

Which unit used a bracketed air move? Actually, neither of my guys that moved (3AD and 4AD) have bracketed movement values (assuming what you mean is actual parenthetical, like the FEAF (4)).

3AD, for example is a 20-10-2, with a 4 extended range.

The only time it would be halved if it was at long range from the BH - IE, if it say stopped in Tainan (4 hexes from Manila), then it would be halved for being at long range.

Using its extended range to get to the base it is flying from does not halve its strength.

So the total strength in the battle is 54, FEAF is already flipped, so min damage is 13 or so.

I am not sure what you mean about flipping your Corps though - I cannot flip you Corp regardless in A/N battle since you had an air unit in the space - the only way you can flip a ground unit with air power is if there is not air unit in the space at all.

Lastly, you are correct about the crit - since you cannot actually flip a unit, you have to apply the crit to the lowest damage unit available, which would be 3AD or 4AD. Which are basically the same, so you cannot crit Shokaku.

Go ahead and flip one of them during your turn - but I will likely send them different places as a result during PBM.

I hope that all makes sense.....
52 9/6/2021 2:14:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Just so I understand what happened in BA,
I can damage any AN unit with a 9. However, can I flip shokaku since it's got a 12 defence (and I have a 10 attack).

Also, why didn't you have to roll your attack? Don't you only have 20 air factors since you used your bracketed move to get to 2812? So you'd have total of 36 with your CV. If you rolled a 0-2, that would only give you .25 or 9 -- not enough to flip my corps.
51 9/3/2021 2:36:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message PBM:

Message from Japanese:
OK, so BH A

AN battle is uninteresting, just rolling to see if the allies get a crit, since their destruction is automatic.
44 8/29/2021 7:53:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I've looked at this for a while and it appears that the only HQ that is within range of a battle can't really activate anything useful.

So go ahead.
43 8/28/2021 5:12:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message That is correct. Supply is good.
42 8/28/2021 2:15:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message My understanding is that SW Pac cannot activate because it is currently not in supply. Is that correct?

Malaya HQ is in supply however.

I now understand the importance of the ABDA HQ!
41 8/27/2021 8:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message No surprise, over to you for response.

35 8/27/2021 2:08:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Okay, I'm not doing that again.

I now have the Arcadia card.

It looks like I can

a. The Allies get a free Emergency Naval Move for all naval units prior to the play of the first Japanese Strategy card play.
and
b. I can Arcadia prior to the first Japanese card play in game turn 2.

Not sure which happens first.
