690 6/16/2022 8:38:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Japanese Message And all good exchanging thoughts. I've now got to survive my next game... Hoping good prospects for you moving forward.
689 6/16/2022 8:37:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Japanese Message It's kind of how I felt on turn 10 of my last game - I had a list of units left to kill that said I could mess up one card, so I was very careful and systematic. Realistically I knew I had no chance but have to at least play for a mistake, which I doubted you were going to make.
688 6/16/2022 8:33:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Allies Message It was very fun game, thank you! I'll email Chris Thibault.

Would you like to exchange longer thoughts on the game over the next few days? I'll definitely send you mine. For now I'll just say sorry if it felt like I was "playing with my food" this last game turn. That was my only military EC. I couldn't risk using it earlier in case you had a weather card or used replacement cards to rebuild multiple air stacks.
687 6/16/2022 8:27:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Japanese Message Nope, that should do it. Combat in Tsingtao will be automatic with just a 9-12 left.

I am completely out of options or cards that could possibly prevent the blockade, so I'll concede. Go ahead and email moderator and let him know. Well done, really enjoyed the game.

I'm pretty sure you're going to be able to pull off the blockade and I'll need to concede, but I'll go down swinging. No need to mark the High altitude, doesn't apply with Oki.

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: In addition the Allied player immediately receives 3 Chinese ground and 1 Allied air replacement steps that must be used immediately (cannot be saved) on in supply units. Allied air units can be in the air units in China box. In addition, the Allies may immediately construct the Jarhat Trans Route for no cost. If Jarhat already constructed then either Ledo or Imphal may be constructed. Remove from play if used as an event.
