362 6/2/2022 5:45:00 PM May-Aug 1944 Japanese Message Just... not now ! Tomorrow
361 6/2/2022 5:45:00 PM May-Aug 1944 Japanese Message Anyway ! thanks for the game Frank !
And yeah let's rematch !

I will take allies, create the game, draw my cards, strategic warfare and think to my next offensive.

360 6/2/2022 5:44:00 PM May-Aug 1944 Japanese Message I dont know if it really is hardr with JP, but I think there is something wrong with the way strategic warfare is implemented.
In the original game, it is designed to remove 1 or 2 cards out of 7.
Here it is the same criteria but it removes 1 or 2 cards out of 4...
That is nearly twice as much !
359 6/2/2022 5:41:00 PM May-Aug 1944 Japanese Message It is even worse than that. Rangoon is allied controlled so B is 0 and C is -1
358 6/2/2022 1:41:00 PM May-Aug 1944 Allies Message Ok, this ends the game:
VPs
A: -1
B: +3
C:
D:
E: -1
F:

H:
I: -2
J:
K:
L: -1

sum: -2 "Allied Decisive Victory"

Ok, I think playing Japan is definitely harder. Do you want to setup the revanche game?

Move the China marker one box to the right toward the Stable Front box, unless this would put the China marker in the Stable Front box, in which case no effect.
