234 2/4/2023 10:12:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Mark: I put the event marker on the turn track and marked the increase in ASP and the Aus AF got rpls last turn I just forgot to flip it. Only had 4 of my 5 used last turn and one of those 4 was the Aus AF...must be a camo thing or something. Over to you.
BTW I was talking to a buddy of mine about Strateegeery and I was under the impression you could only rush in land units into an empty hex. He quicky disabused me of this mistaken notion. OOOopppps....my impression of this was just got a LOT harder. Over to you.

227 2/4/2023 3:46:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Note you do not have to roll for Sent-to-Europe for Commonwealth troops like the SEAC LRB.

'5' on Sub roll is right where you needed for a hit, so I will be losing an ASP and will be down a card. I have 13 resources spaces, which means 7 cards, but the sub hit moves me to 6 cards, 1 pass.

Note that it is in your rights to have me place my R&R before seeing what the subs will do, but I also appreciate you moving the game along.
226 2/3/2023 7:11:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Mark: are you waiting on me? I've done everything on my side and I believe my SW roll actually sunk another ship and card. Might want to check my math. Waiting on you when you can get to it. I think this year will tell the tale. I expected to miss at least one or two PoW interludes before my strength grew too powerful; however, missing it last turn was absolutely stupid. My original move had me taking down the 3rd point on the 2nd to last card. Oh well I'm lurnun a lot.

211 1/31/2023 11:52:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Hi Tom,

Para markers are just 'flavor' markers. No effect on the game. If there are no ground units in the hex, either you can invade it straight out, or if it has my AZOI over it, it could be a Special Reaction battle hex.
210 1/31/2023 11:18:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Mark: what is your understanding concerning the current status of the Para markers. They seem to be event markers that not the change of ownership of a hex; however, they are not ground troops in the sense that their number approx 650-850 is below the min level of Regiment. FREX if I invaded Admiralty Island now and won the Air/Naval battle how would we do the land battle? Take Medan FREX if I invaded there now we should treat that as an unoccupied hex to which you could do a Special Reaction move if you passed the roll correct?

190 1/26/2023 12:51:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Hi Tom,

I know it is a bit confusing, but the card does not allow SW Pac to activate CW units. It just says the *only* ground units that can be activated are Australian. So if you want to activate ground, you have to use a HQ that can activate Australians for this card, which means ANZAC or SEAC.

Please see: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1252346/article/17173344#17173344

186 1/25/2023 1:58:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message I've been doing some long term planning and just realized that you may not own Gasmata hex 3921. There is not flag showing ownership. I don't recall you moving into it. Don't see anything that talks about it falling if Rabaul is taken. If Gasmata and 4022 are still owned by me then I assume I can spend Amph points to move ground units into them which I believe will not trigger a battle. Am I missing something here?

182 1/24/2023 10:43:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Yes, a non-LRB air in Madang will put your AZOI over 3620 and 3520 enabling a sea-path for the supply to flow to Hollandia. (Or I think more correctly for Hollandia to trace a non-interdicted path to the board edge making it a supply eligible port, then you have an HQ in range that can trace a path to supply units there).

I forgot to eliminate the AVG in Mandalay can you please remove it and place the 14 AF tac? To you for intel roll which this time should be 30% as no unit moved into AZOI. Total factors should be 33 vs 17 or + units you may activate. Over to you. Also you will need to turn the Rivalry over to disagreement for the Allies.

159 1/18/2023 10:32:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Call for more troops no battle: ANZAC activates on a 2OC activating: 1st Aus Corp to move to Lae, the 2n Aus Corps to move to Port Morsby and the Aus Air to move to Cape York.
158 1/13/2023 12:53:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Ok, so Ground units actually enter the hex to enter a battle. You have them marked for battle, but sitting in Lae still?

No problem for US XI XXX and/or 3 Aus XXX which each started in Lae to enter Madang, as it is only one hex move (of 2MF) which is achievable on the 2OC play.

For 3 Aus to get to Madang, you would need to Amphib move them from Darwin, which would cost 2 ASP. It would also be vulnerable, as you have no Naval units headed for Madang, as well as the fact that when using Amphib assault the units defense factor is halved.

So let me know how you want to proceed.

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.

156 1/10/2023 11:54:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Hi Tom,

=============================================================
In addition a ZOI has two effects even when neutralized:
ē Offensives unit entering, exiting or moving within reaction side ZOI gives a +2 modifier to intelligence roll (7.26)

Are the Offensive units ANY unit activated by the Card play regardless if it is in the attack or not? FREX the attack Iím considering is an attack supported by air units that donít move to get in range (but will obviously attack from their base). IF that was all the answer is no +2 for intel roll; however, Iím also planning on strat ground moving a unit into a port in a neutralized AZOI. I assume that unit would meet the bullet point condition above.
=============================================================
Yes, the +2 applies regardless if the units triggering are in the battle(s) or not.
Also correct that if you activate, but do not move, then those units do not trigger a +2.

Mark

154 1/9/2023 9:56:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Ok Tom, you can place SEAC and do the first card for Turn 4.

I have no Future Offensive card. You get 1 more card than you have drawn to 7.

Since you have more cards, you have first play.

148 1/9/2023 9:37:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Hi Tom,

Thanks for putting things in ACTS.

---------------------------------------------------
Keep forgetting to keep all communications in the ATC. Anyway turn 4 has begun. I've done my reinforcements and replacements. Still getting killed by my delay rolls.
I rolled for diversion of the SEAC plan and realized thats wrong as it can't be diverted to Europe. But what I'm not sure is if I get it replaced this turn or it gets delayed a turn. 10.0 blue section can be construed as how you place the unit not that the unit is delay. I'm not sure. Regardless it is not 3 turns out.
---------------------------------------------------
Yes, the 1 unit this turn. SEAC AF did not have to make a roll, as it was from 'replacements', and not an arriving reinforcement. Also, only US roll for Sent-to-Europe, even though CW do suffer the 'Delay Box' when WiE is not positive for the US/Allies.

So you have the SEAC AF to still place.

----------------------------------------------------
Got lucky on the strat war DR your down 2 cards to 5 I believe.
----------------------------------------------------
Subs hit, so I am down 1 card for that. Still running on 1942 Strategic reserves, so 7 cards to start, so my hand is 6 cards, 1 pass.

You should have a full 7 card hand on Turn 4.
Your PoW target is 3 hexes, as you start with 3 ASP for the turn.

Both Philippines and Malaya fall during end of last turn, so 2 PW hit. We started at 8, so current values should be 5 for DEI, Malaya, and P.I. falling.

I moved the Northampton to PH as declared in last turn but forgot to execute. But move BACK the Mar X SF to Dutch Harbor as I grab him inadvertently. I did not adjust Progress of War as I was not sure what fell this turn. I know the Philippines fell this turn but not sure about the rest. Also don't know where Political will started the game.

140 1/8/2023 6:08:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message This move would be much easier if I knew the rules better and understood invasions better. But alas here is the move finally: 2OC activates by Cen Pac for 5 units: Northampton (to Pearl), 10 Af, 7AF, 211 Mar air, (all planes to turn track) XI corps (to Lae):

139 1/8/2023 3:04:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message okay after MUCH dithering: I activated only the 10 AF in Dutch Harbor and then the 6 MAW in Buin and the 7 AF in Midway and sent them all to arrive as non-delayed reinforcements in next turn. The New Orleans and Mar X M are still sent to Funafuti.
138 1/8/2023 1:13:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I think no port in Midway, and believe you were out of ASP, so cannot get the unit to Midway (as it must use AA if no port).
137 1/8/2023 1:11:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Mark: Sry for all the chgs just realized I had one activation left. So Northampton does move to Pearl Harbor. So to reiterate: 3 units in Dutch Harbor activate: Mar X goes to Midway, CA to Pearl and 10 AF to tract to arrive next turn and the New Orleans and Mar M X activate in Pearl and move to Funafuti.
136 1/8/2023 12:45:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Mark: I decided to chg my move. Instead of moving the CA in Dutch Harbor to Pearl I activated the Corps in Guadalcanal and moved him via strat move to Lae.
