659 4/19/2017 9:24:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message I thought that this might be the game where the US finally enters the war but it was not to be. I've been busy lately. We have been looking to move and it looks like that might happen in a couple of months. Why don't we take a break from gaming until I get set up in the new place?
658 3/17/2017 5:36:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message For my 1 loss at Constantinople I will flip the FR corp and advance with the BR corp and destroy the trench placing the entire CP force in the NE out of supply.
657 3/17/2017 5:34:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message I believe it is possible to recapture Constantinople and within the rules to bring in the Turk replacements at that point. Historically that would be very unlikely I think. In our game you might be able to put enough force down in the Balkans to get to Adrianople but you have no armies that could attack into Constantinople so the retaking is very unlikely given the (NE) army and Orient army that could go there. I don't think you can break through to Adrianople this turn with only 3 impulses left although the GE 6th could cause a lot of damage. Gallipoli I think reverted to Allied control at the end of last turn even though I didn't mention it since I had Adrianople. That would allow supply into Constantinople. Salonika also gives supply in this region. The fall of Turkey will give 5 victory points at this point to the Allies. You might be able to pick up most of those and maybe more in Russian and the Western Front. Maybe even in Italy but it would be an uphill battle. A lot can change in the last 3 or 4 turns. Fall of the Tsar could net you 3 points. It might be interesting to play this one on out but I'll let you decide. You have had me on the ropes for most of the game.
656 3/17/2017 4:27:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message 4/1, remove both TUc's, your choice for a single loss. I can't even cancel the retreat, I beleive that's the game right there! Is it possible to recapture Constantinople once it is lost?

Message from Allies:

Message from Central Powers:
CP6, there is one chance out of four you can win the fight and be able to advance right away into Constantinople. I am sure to lose (Aol) but then again without Turkish replacements I will not last anyway. So there you have it, I will go for the replacements and hope you either do not attack or I get to flip FR Or. Your call now!
586 3/10/2017 9:21:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message I will take the night to think it over. Will I SR units or take replacements? If you decide to attack with FR OR again you will destroy TU Aol but it could come at a cost.

MG CC out of play by the way...
585 3/10/2017 9:13:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message 3/3, flip Aol and GEc, remove one FRc and remove the other.

May only be played after "Over There". 1 corps.

Message from Allies:
AP-5: I was tempted to retreat from Paris and pay the 1 VP to hit Chateau-Thierry and isolate the GE 12th in Paris but this is simpler less risky. FR (4th) eliminated to stay in Paris and replaced with a corp from reserve. Congratulations on the trench roll. You got lucky on that impulse.
2 OPS.
1. Melun for movement: FR 1st army moves to Paris, FR 9th and 10th armies try to entrench.
2. Adrianople for combat: French attack Constantinople 4a vs 4a. You may have a CC card to play here so I'll let you roll.

Allows play of "Royal Tank Corps".

Message from Allies:
Playing this as an event just to properly get it out of the deck. "Royal Tank Corps" is now allowed as a CC.
567 3/9/2017 9:15:00 AM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message I beleive you should dispose of the card "playing" it as an event so as to remove it from the deck, draw another card and carry on with your normal second round card play. It will be just as if nothing had ever happened!
566 3/9/2017 6:54:00 AM Fall 1917 Allies Message I mentioned that I would play the card "Landships" as an event last time but I didn't. I just played it as operations and the card stayed in the deck. It came up this hand and that is OK with me to just leave it as is (still a non-event) and still in the hand. If you have a problem with that, I could play it as an event now to get it out of the deck and draw another card to replace it. Let me know.
