Yes, the East Indies transport is on a no-return-mission. And if you choose not to attack the India Fleet, so is the Borneo transport. But I still think that’s the price I’ll choose to pay.
I don’t believe the UK player will try to recapture Borneo or I.E. on UK1. it will be an uncertain attack that will only leave the mainland even more open to the japanese player.
I take it, you are willing to take a little more risk in round 1 than I am comfortable with.
I just imagine one of those games where US doesn’t hit any fighters in Hawaii, and where the UK sub attacks your Carrier and Cruiser off Burma and hits on the first roll and you don’t hit back…… My nerves can’t handle that
