42 8/21/2016 6:09:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I think "dance of Death" describes the actions to try and trap/kill the Ge army in Insterberg. AH 3A's pickle is something else entirely. It starts the game highly vulnerable. You fixed that condition last game on the Aug '14 first action round.
41 8/21/2016 5:51:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Please correct your move. AH 3A is OOS in Tarnopol. He cannot be activated, so he cannot move. See 14.1.1.1 and 14.3.1

Dubno: 3A to Stanislaw.
Kamenets-Podolski: combat vs Czernowitz.
34 8/16/2016 12:54:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Perhaps you might review the TEC, K Willie witherarm, before you advance illegally......

Ge7(A) is a 3, shift L one for trench, one for mountain. So the CP attack is on the 1 AFT, vs 5 CFT for the AP. The result is 2LF for the AP and 1LF for the CP. The AP elims 1 XXX for 2 LF and flips the other (XXX) to refuse the retreat because of the trench and mountain effects.

So you can trot ur stinky heinie right back out of Belfort and back to Mulhouse.....and we fart in the general direction of Germany!


33 8/16/2016 12:45:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message AP...URUP!

Message from Allies:
CP vs Brussels
12 8/8/2016 12:54:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message So to recap- We roll the attack as usual with both of us rolling on the 6 column (because of trench) but the BEF must retreat regardless of who wins and negates its step loss. The Germans, however, must suffer a guaranteed step loss. No need to even roll the dice.
11 8/8/2016 12:49:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Article in Players Guide includes a non-flanking attack on the BEF (just like we did) so...Ignore reference to flank attack, roll combat and apply effects after the action.
10 8/8/2016 12:40:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message After reading 12.6 I think your right...but how to play? 12.6 refers to flanking attack. Still researching.
9 8/6/2016 10:43:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I think the withdrawal cards (u have one also) are played after the combat--and only if there is a loss that the withdrawal will negate. What do u think?
8 8/6/2016 10:42:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Withdraw to Cambrai.
7 8/6/2016 9:34:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Combat #6: 2 / Withdrawal
Defending units negate one required Corps step loss and instead must retreat 1 space. Full strength Attacking units may advance. If no Corps step(s) lost, an Army step loss may be negated. See rule 12.6 for details.

Message from Allies:
Yup. It's here. Thinking of my withdrawal route.
