USN Comments: I am not running in CPO. I am raising the white flag. I concede.  You also got the important day/night rolls and shot the lights out.  Great shooting. You also played well, strategically.

You won this game on turn 2 in Hawaii when you knocked out the four bigger carriers with your 4 little carriers.

IJN Comments: Thanks for the game. Yes, I agree losing the 5 CV's on turn 2 was the game.
