227 6/22/2022 7:21:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Or I really suggest Imperial Struggle, same designers, similar game, but..NO DICE

Only problem is impossible to handle in ACTS everything because module lacks some feature of the game. But I really really like this game, same level as TS that I consider probably best GMT I've ever played togheter with Paths of Glory
226 6/22/2022 3:36:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Great, I play TS on steam, do you have the account? There yes a league called ITLS organizing world tournaments and there is a huge community
225 6/22/2022 3:23:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I like Twilight Struggle but I donít have much time after EOTS!
224 6/22/2022 3:16:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message If I had not won with these card would have been very very worrying for me...

Do you play other boardgames or just EoTS?
223 6/22/2022 3:08:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Yes I misplayed Alaska on 3 consecutive turns!

Haha!

I will learn next time
222 6/22/2022 3:03:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Yes that was crazy luck, first time I had those so early. I was really really worried about Alaska, then you simply let it go and unless an event I was sure to reach 0.

Good game, as always!
221 6/22/2022 3:00:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Congrats thatís game!

1 in every 20 games the JP will draw both Tojo and Tokyo rose for 3 PW reduction before the Allied player has drawn either of the 2 Allied PE cards.


That represents the ultimate challenge as it means that PW only needs to reduce by 5.

I did not play well enough to beat this 1 in 20 advantage!

Credit to you for setting up well and then being in a position to capitalise on your good fortune.

I misplayed my hand by using Coast Watchers and not realising that I could not draw it back with ISR-ender - and so you just put another unit there - so I achieved almost nothing!

Nevermind.

You are in a very good position now
