Two questions:

1) Has anyone tried to sail throught the War in the Pacific logo at the right lower quadrant of the map? I've never had a TF that far down. I'm tempted to try but I'm afraid I might run into Easter Island or the Galapagos

2) Can you march a Land Unit across the Bearing Straight ice bridge?

Don't think the supply rules will let you. You can only go a couple of unimproved hexes before the game says "not allowed".

1. You run the risk of a logotomy.
2. Only if you're bearing straight at it. Now, the Bering Straits are a different story. They have a nice bridge you can cross.

No, that bridge was washed away in the last storm.

"Logotomy"..good one

Bloody showoff on the Bering Straight thing though I thought that didn't look right. I will try the land bridge, perhaps bringing some Wooly Mammoths along to carry supplies.

I do wish to report a possible bug. When I transited the USS Oglala across the big "A" in the logo, the TF icon disappeared behind the "A" and never emerged from the other side. She was gone, simply gone. No TF. Not listed as sunk. No message. Just gone. I think she fell into the dread "A-hole"

LOL!!

Now, is this a true fact, or did you just make it up for a good story?

You mean . . . omigosh! . . . You mean the Oglala disappeared . . into the War in the Pacific Triangle? Spooky, huh? Don't send any search craft to look for her.

At least she won't be alone. I'll bet that wherever she is at is well-populated by missing leaders.

You gotta feel for the sailors on the Oglala, though. All those leaders, and they're the only enlisted me to receive the orders!!!

Look for your game to reset with Oglala re-spawning next to the Nimitz 300 miles north of PH, and it's 12-06-41...
