143 4/13/2024 3:18:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message All the combats looks good. Even the "2" rolls were helpful.

If I magically kept all the city VP hexes except VL I would be at 9 VP. Which means I would need to hold VL to win. I've got 8 combat factors there (OOS) and right now you had 48 factors surrounding it. You'd get 4 rolls on the 5:1 Column which should average ~2.5 step losses per turn and I have 7 steps to lose (6 plus the fortification).

Let's play one more turn and see if you roll a 1 on the VL attack.

121 4/9/2024 7:29:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message Sorry for the delay - I actually submitted an NSF proposal. I have a new research faculty who is pretty gungho and pretty much did everything - still took some effort to help him.

I agree this seems kinda pointless. I wonder if I had defended better in my initial set up. I wasn't expecting you to be able to outflank me from the reinforcement hexes - wasn't seeing that. Still I think that was only 2 units whacked.

Been goofing around a bit with Axis Empires. It's ok - there's some weirdness. OOS units never die, HQ units are all powerful, and there are so many cards it's hard to know what to play with proper planning... Still it's interesting. Mostly done ETO - might try one map West front next but that has naval units which I don't understnad.

101 4/5/2024 3:37:00 PM Turn 5 Soviets Message Btw, what do you think of VL?
Seems pretty darned dull and tedious to me. With such a tiny map and sticky ZOCs, there's very little agency for either the RU or the GE player.
You made a mistake with the GE setup, but otherwise, there's really not much choice or many decisions about what either player does.

If a unit must retreat into a non-negated EZOC each unit loses 1 additional step

* well, if they retreat through the VL hex with units in it (0604 I think? Don't have the game in from of me), instead of the empty hex in a RU ZOC (0603?), then they're OK, right? Retreating into a negated ZOC (i.e. VL hex) doesn't cause a step loss. So, they retreat into VL, and as they're overstacked in VL, they just need to retreat 1 more hex, and wouldn't have to take any extra step losses along the way. There was a Q&A about this on the Geek, and the designer confirmed that this is legal. I'll send the relevant Q&A in an email in just a mo...
