Always game my friend. We often talk about it...how about a IJN vs RN game. Would prefer to play 1943 (or later) and keep it to purely British aircraft, including cards from our decks. That would make planes like the Tarpon, Barracuda, and Firefly available without opening the door to the USN Hellcat or Avenger (or the Helldiver/Dauntless, which you know I wouldn't use anyway). 1942 or earlier, and the Brits are trying to do this with biplanes vs. Zeros/Vals/Kates. Not a great matchup in carrier air.
That second matchup sounds better. One question though - do you want to swap out the stock Haruna with either my card for Haruna (same cost and stats, but adds Torpedo Bulges) or Hiei (No sexy SAs, but Torpedo Protection and +1 Vital)? Also, you could replace Kaga and Akagi with the my MI Kaga and the team's MI Akagi (only 1 point more and still fits, just different SA combos and durability). Finally, you could swap out 1 or 2 of the Judy's for my Veteran Val, or swap out an Elite Zero or two for the Team's A6M3 Hamp). I'd be cool with any of the these changes, knowing that the build above was basically just a recycle of a much older build you pulled off the shelf.
