...to help me test some theories as expressed in my recent book series "Saving MacArthur" - the essence of which is a much
more aggressive allied side than in the RL. I have played it through one time against the AI in a "realistic" mode but would
like to repeat it against a live opponent following a pattern agreed upon. The game should be as realistic as possible but
with a couple of quirks I want introduced. My intention is to finish the game on August 7th 1942 - the date of the US
landings on Guadalcanal, the crux being to see what could have been done differently - or better - up till that date. So,
the opponent is free to quit at that date.

As it is a few months since I last played the game, and it is my first PBEM, I would like to go through a short scenario first
to get acquainted with the peculiarities of a PBEM game. I should probably be able to file daily scenarios.

I would file a weekly AAR here in the form of a "News Report" (all sorts of cheating allowed) and would appreciate if the opponent
could do the same from his side. If the project works out I might use it as a basis for a tail-end book after my eight-book series
"Saving MacArthur", of which I have soon finished the eighth volume.

If interested, please PM me.

Fred

This link to the AAR I filed when I first played against the AI may give you an idea of what I am looking for:

Thank you, HS - unfortunately it seems as if nobody here has the guts (.....)....to take the challenge. In the meantime
I'm playing another game against the AI just to see the difference now that I've learnt all I hadn't during my first game.

It's a big difference.

Fred

Hi Fred,

I missed your initial posting in 2015.

I'm potentially interested in 'sand boxing' some of the things that you suggested. Drop me a line if you'd like to discuss further.
