    Struggling with this turn.
    Japan can see that there is a whole lotta pressure coming. So the purchase and NCM for this move is crucial, and many variations and variables complicate it. I currently have a little bit of an edge militarily, and internal lines of communication - but still economically disadvantaged.
    And then there’s trying to predict the possible variations’ effect on the Europe side.
    Big decisions…


  • @mainah I thought the same for Japan. Take your time. This game is absolutely awesome and intense! Russia wasn’t as easy as I thought it should be either once I dived in. Simple love at the end, it took some careful thought on the build to thwart all that mobile out there.

    Loving this game. Good stuff!

    @kilroynothere
    The effect of the sinking of germinates fleet is really showing now!


  • @mainah Haven’t heard them called the Germanites … like it. And yeah, now the Axis has to defend on the land and the allies have the mobility in their favor. Still, with Gib a fortress, not an easy task for the Allies to crack it open.


  • @mainah quick update. I had outpatient surgery 16 days ago. Just now starting to get off the pain meds and working a bit and catching up. Sorry for the delay.

  • 2023 '20

    @kilroynothere
    No worries at all! I figured it was just busy holiday stuff. Sorry to hear that it was something far less fun. Hope you mend well.


  • @mainah Hey there! Again, very sorry for my incredible tardiness on this move. I’m finally getting back to normal again. Starting working and getting to the office and desperately trying to catch up. I’m hopeful to be able to make a move here shortly… now that I’m not on heavy pain killers it might actually be a move that makes sense!

  • 2023 '20

    @kilroynothere
    No worries at all!
    Been flat out myself. Last of the fall chores and work cranked up.


  • @mainah really appreciate this note. My recovery has been much slower than I anticipated. Just this week started going back to the office! Still can’t work a full day, but getting better. Hope all the fall chores are finishing up before the snows hit.

    @kilroynothere
    We got our pig friday. 225 dry weight. Processing it solo as my friend had a sick kid at home. And I am trying to cold smoke the bacon and ham myself this time with a smoke shed I built. But besides that, we are good.


  • @mainah Holy crap that is awesome! My dad grew on a farm in OK, and would tell me of processing stories. Being a city kid, never got to experience any of that. And especially just how good it all tastes.

    I finally took a few minutes last night to take my first look at the allies moves. Lot’s to consider! I’m going to have some time without family tonight so hope to finish up my thoughts and make some moves. Again, thanks for your patience. Really appreciate it.


  • @mainah OK, finally making a move. Forum still not working for me, not sure if it did for you. Did the dice come through OK?

    Merry Christmas Kilory.

    The axis are in a tough position now. This might take a bit.


  • @mainah hope you had a great Christmas! I’m not so sure axis is in a bad position or not. I know I’m not fully sold on the allies position right now either. I do like that we both are not feeling confident. Means it’s a great game! Again, so sorry on the massive delay on my part. Thanks for sticking with me. I’m feeling about 95% now and I’ll take that as a win!

    @kilroynothere
    Glad to hear (read?) that your doing well and healing. Dont worry about any delays, especially for health and family.

    Funny how perspectives can be so different while looking at the same thing.

    Lets see what the Aussie’s whip up.

    Edits were to remove any left-over Vichy units since I pulled off Case Anton correctly this time. I am guessing they didn’t automatically clear due to the last attempt setting off the trigger.
