Well, we're almost done with the Fall 2 1965 turn. Truly hot die-rolling by the FWA meant that by the end of the season we were rapidly approaching the 30 dead NLF battalion mark that would start increasing US morale. Faced with this prospect, the NLF began a general flight into Laos and Cambodia.

Overall situation with a few operations left to run:



I Corps situation. Bill was limited by the fact that he forgot to purchase additional NVA Repl twice in a row. The NVA got smacked early by a Security Operation run by the ARVN Parachute Division and then faded back behind the border. I promised to remind him this coming season. devil :



II Corps situation. 101st and 82nd are trying to get a handle on a serious situation. The VC occupied a town on the border and surrounded it with patrol zones and VC regiments lurking across the border. Too much trouble to tackle this season:



III Corps situation. 1st Cavalry Division has a handle on the area:



IV Corps situation. Americal and some marines swept the VC out of the delta. We even had a few successful ARVN operations.



Bill has mentioned something about trying out some new strategies, but it's hard to counter an FWA strategy that is driven by lucky dice and operations that use target selection based on which VC units annoy me the most.

Ugh, Bill.

Sounds like Comrade Bill is going to be in for some re-education. The Party finds that wholly unacceptable.

I don't know how others play the Commies in this game but using the NVA for anything in 1965 is pretty foolish so lack of replacements isn't much an issue .

Meh, I never really had a problem with them affecting the long game, if only to get a Big-Duke-Kilgore FWA player to play Chase Me-Chase Me--which is more fun than a Communist player should have.

Was there an NVA incursion into South Vietnam? I looked over the pictures and didn't see one.

You don't see one because he's dead. I had one regiment just over the border into I Corps with a mess of VC battalions around him. Dave launched a large operation with a lot of air support. Rather than try to fight out a losing battle I just killed the regiment in the first round to cut my losses. Might even have been worth sacrificing the regiment for the amount of support that was expended. Maybe?

I haven't figured out how the endgame plays yet, so it seems reasonable to kill it off. I try to take somebody down with me.

Just finished the Interphase and we're on to Winter 1 1965. I only killed 29 VC Battalions, but I rolled a "1" for ARVN effectiveness! surprise

More Koreans arrive in I Corps. The remaining 2 brigades of 1st Marine Division is now in II Corps. US commitment at 150 points. Let's see how a brave, new South Vietnam takes care of business.

We should play again next weekend. I'll give more advance notice next time.
