Message from Japanese:
This is my last card but based on the current situation it is useless. You will always have last card so I can never open up a line to a resource hex with your carriers sitting in Sasebo and thus will eventually surrender due to blockade. SO concession is in order. Hard to say one blunder in this turn was more significant that a long list of earlier blunders but I probably could have worked this a little better. The eventual results would have been loss by getting all spaces on Honshu conquered instead of the blockade method.
I knew going in that from an end game experience point of view you are by far the better player so I was happy to go with the War in Europe plays when the deck decided to give them to me. Getting to an unusual situation offered some small hope. And I did manage to live in the Tojo zone for a turn or two. But here we are with both decks almost empty and still no Tojo card but you score Olympic and Coronet just when you needed it most. So I guess it was never in the cards as they say. However, I had fun and it was instructive. Still not sure how Japan survives by fighting harder earlier but others can do it so obviously I need to study a little harder. Congratulations on the victory and good luck in the next round.

If I'm correct, this pins absolutely every air and naval Japanese unit on the map.

Another observation: 9AD in 2911 can only be activated by South HQ. (Thing is, thanks to my AZOIs that's the only unit South HQ can reach).

Activation: South or South Seas HQs only. Logistic Value: 5 Conditions: Only air and ground units may be activated. Bonus: Neither the HQ nor the units being activated need to be in supply in order to be activated, but must be within HQ activation range.

OC: 5 EC: 7

Message from Japanese:
On South HQ as event for 6 units (I note that the special ability isn't really all that useful unless I am missing something. In most cases when you are out of supply you are also under lots of active enemy air ZOIs and you can't move through them. So would this card allow you to move an air unit to neutralize enemy air zones and then slip the ground units out? That would seem to require activation without a legal activation path. So I guess you need the unusual situation where units are cut off but not covered by ZOIs. Doesn't seem very likely but Mark usually has something specific in mind when he makes these things up so I am probably too dense to figure it out.)

South HQ for 6 as follows:
4AD Soerabaja to Kyoto
[9AD] Kendari to 2911
[29 Army] Singapore to Pusan
[Kor Army] Davao to Seoul
15 Army Saigon to Kure

4) 3AD Saigon to Hanoi.
5) 22AF Soerabaja to Hanoi.

That is a total of 82 AF all hitting hex 2208 and not that it will matter much but I didn't enter any enemy air ZOIs. Over to you for battle, file on the way.

190 7/11/2020 2:24:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese 3 2 Event #3: 2 / Col. Tsuji, Unit 82: Jungle Warfare
Activate: Any HQ Logistic Value: 3 Intelligence: Surprise Attack Conditions: Only Japanese ground units may be activated. Bonus: In any ground combat that occurs in a Malaya, Jungle or Mixed terrain hex for the duration of this operation, the final die roll modifier for the Japanese in any ground battles is +4.

OC: 4 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
The game is basically over so we will just experiment for a few turn before surrendering.

Tsuji as event on South HQ for 4 units as follows:
1) 25 Army from Singapore to Kuantan. This is the only battle.
2) 38 Army port to port Singapore to Palau Isl.
3) [16 Army] port to port Tjilatjap to Koepang.
4) [17 Army] and 1 ASP Kendari to Vogelkop.

The battle is automatic so 3 Ind Corp is eliminated and 25 Army can't be damaged. That is probably the last resource space I will be taking. Thus ends the Offensives Phase.
