Following along with on this one BB. It looks pretty complex, but fun. I'd ask the Dealer for a new Attackers dice, that thing rolls LOW.  :biggrin:  How long is each turn in game time?

Yeah, it seem quite good, although I'm not generally a fan of strategic level games.

The first 6 turns are roughly 6 months each and the remaining turns are about 3 months each. Yeah, sometimes the dice are suspect, but not as suspect at the dice in Vassal.  :whistle:

I do like strategic levels games, especially when they are of manageable size.  8)

So, am I wrong or did the Axis get nothing for taking Canton? Other than an enemy army gone I suppose.

They do get the resource located there. It also puts the Japanese one Land Area closer to CBI theater victory points.

I didn't see a Resource there but afterward it did occur to me it would help close-out the sea areas the Japanese need.

I almost bought this a while ago in my exchange with Noble Knight, but refrained as it looked like it had way too much of a table presence. I'd love to have a decent strategic level game like this, thanks mainly to your videos.
