I just ordered A Company to shift forces one base to the east to location code named Fin Shaft. I don't see any enemy troops there and
I'm thinking that my capturing Fin Shaft will upset Jap plans somewhat.

The defenders were stronger than I was expecting. I thought maybe that we had eliminated most of the troops by sinking most of the AK's
that brought them but here I see that a bunch got ashore. I'll have to put a stop to the attacking pronto.

Here's the failed industry report. There's about 6 places where an enemy unit is in the hex so the industry failed for that reason. Other-
wise there's Melborne that failed for lack of oil.

TF 202 is maintaining a brand new minefield they just laid in the deep water just NE of Pearl and I'm hoping one of more of those Jap
subs will wander into it. It's got 80 mines and should just about do the trick.

Supplies from Bombay are finally reaching Perth three weeks into the game. And this ship is just the first of at least a dozen from
Colombo and there's another two dozen coming to Perth from Cape Town.

Here's all the traffic going into Perth. You can see a lot of fuel being carried and not so much supply. But it's a lot of ships.

Very good AAR

for how long do you plan to play it?
Being a JFB, I can tell you had already win; you have inflicting way too many loses for the AI to recover. That said, you can still have a lot of fun for the next months


Having only played against the AI, I can tell that the key for a longer game is to try to avoid using historical knowledge or strategies that would not work against a human (using PT boats as bait for example).
The Japanese AI is in particular very vulnerable because of it inherent "wastefulness"; the Allied AI is as wasteful, but it lives in the land of the plenty, so I think it would still throw good punches later on.
Japan on the other hand, had few replacements coming and its economy, unless it successfully captures the SRA, is going to crash rather soon.

Well thank you very much. I do try to present the salient details and so on.

I have dreams of waves of B-29's devestating the home island cities. But if I've already won then I'm guessing maybe I should start
over. In the next game I'll just do the Sir Robin Defense and the game will turn out different. Stay tuned.

I'm using my PT boats as bait in my game w/ Jim and he doesn't shoot them either. I'm thinking that maybe I should just return them to
the pool and the problem is solved. I don't have much use for PT boats at Pearl but in the Celebes for example, they could work as
early warning picket ships or something.

I agree. I'm into 28Mar42 in my game w/ Jim and already I'm seeing the Japanese bases w/ resource centers unable to keep up w/ my
grabbing of them. And there's a lot of one-shot sources where there's resources but no Resource Center present and once you've
moved all those resources they are gone. It's going to be interesting seeing what happens next.

So, I guess I'll start over on my game.Anybody have a favorite scenario that they want to see played?

I know that most people that wants a very challenging Jap AI goes Ironman;

the AI still as wasteful as always, but it has a lot more "toys" to play with

I've heard of the Ironman scenario. Sounds VERY challenging. Have you tried it already?

I've started over. This time I'm using scenario 70, RA 4.2 w/ a stock map. These are the losses for the first day:
