You didn't quote the entire saying AllenK:

Never disturb a Hornet's nest unless there is a numbnuts in charge of said nest - in which case you can poke the thing into oblivion without fear of being stung (Anon 1798).

The Italians send a FTR to the West Med 1-box.

They send a strong (for them) task force into the West Med. Do the Allies wish to intercept?

The task force stops in the 1-box and loads the GARR from Tripoli.

Across the other side of the world, Japanese TRANS and AMPH bring the two MAR corps from Menado to Port Arthur. A CA sails an INF Div from Port Moresby to Tsingtao.

The Italians decline combat in Italian Coast and West Med.

Do the Allies wish to initiate hostilities?

Possibly, see the above post.

Germany ground strikes hex 57,56 NE of Odessa.

The results are less than optimal.

Italy moves a Libyan TERR back to Gabes and Milan MIL 1 hex SW on the French-Spanish border.

Over to Mayhemizer for the rest of the impulse.

Well going for A2A was always risky, but with a +4 and -3 I figured I would kill a couple of aircraft even if some of the attackers then got through - and the Japanese can't afford the losses. But then.....

Orm will be distinctly unimpressed

Yes, Singapore is fine.

Such things happens.

Air combat is indeed risky and there is usually little to gain when defending against port strikes. So may I suggest, for the future, that the option 'avoid combat' is considered as a alternative?

Edit: Another alternative, for surprise points, during port strikes is saving three points to select the target suffering the X.

I think that 'avoid Combat' is often appropriate but given where we are in this game, if I had to do this again then I would not seek to avoid combat. With a 1 vs 10 throw and with Japan in the position they are in (resource wise), I believe that would be totally the wrong decision.

However, what was also totally the wrong decision was putting all surprise points on the air to air combat. Yes, the dice were unlucky, but yes, I should have considered that they were possible - and what the consequences would be. It's not as though I hadn't had recent experience - I had actually lost a battle with a +4 modifier earlier in the game so should have been even more aware of the potential pitfalls.

So, as a learning point, if I was faced with exactly the same circumstances again, I would either make one or perhaps two (at very most) tweaks to the A2A table, and then maximise AA fire and/or get the choice.

What is clear is that, with the very lucky 1 vs 10 throws in my favour, I had many options here and should have taken my time in choosing the best mix of options. The one I chose could have been brilliant - but the downside if it wasn't was too great to take such an unnecessary risk.
