Thank you for the game, Gilbert! The anticipated long and grinding war was instead quick and decisive - millions were saved:) Good luck going forward!
265 11/19/2016 10:05:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message BPA VII R1G55
Allied Concession Victory Turn 4 (Fall '14)
Allies Powers - Haakon A Aaroenaes
Central Powers - Gilbert Collins
264 11/19/2016 10:02:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I also think this would've ended in Allied victory. I'm not sure how we report the game, but if we list the result here and also email it to the moderator I think that will do.
263 11/19/2016 9:58:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message Hurricane Barrage was played in #235 and as the ensuing battle was won the CC card was held and is now played again
262 11/18/2016 7:00:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Net effect: German corps is destroyed - allies lose nothing.

I think with those results, I may as well concede the game Haakon. Well Done!

How do we submit the results???

Allied die roll first - both on the corps table


260 11/18/2016 6:54:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message OK, I must flip the AH Army and lose the German Corps which will make exactly the '3' loss.

My die roll does nothing.

The 5th AH army (reduced) retreats to Hannover, joining the German 11th army (flipped)

255 11/17/2016 6:48:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Haakon, the moderator has let us know that we must proceed faster if we are to finish our game. I think you are going to win anyway, but we should move this thing along.


Sincerely,


Gilbert


254 11/16/2016 9:29:00 AM Winter 1915 Moderator Message You are behind the pace of play guys...cnsider thia a gentle nudge to imncrease your pace of play. You should be past Turn 6 by the end of this month.
253 11/14/2016 10:37:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Strategic Redeployment #10: 3 / SUD Army
One AH unit and up to 2 GE corps may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. A different stack may be chosen each Action Round. If a second AH unit or a second non-GE corps unit is present, then the activation cost is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.

Message from Central Powers:

That is it

252 11/14/2016 10:22:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message OK, German 11th army retreats to Hannover. (There is still a German corps in Bremen)

I think this game will be over soon with allied victory in the west.


251 11/14/2016 10:16:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message Alas; the BEF was flipped in #49. It takes precedence in combat losse and can't be replaced, so the BEF army is now perm elim.

To you for retreat and your move
250 11/14/2016 8:45:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Hello Haakon: I got all that except the losses on the BEF. I had the unit at full strength not flipped, so I was puzzled but it being reduced to a corps.

Please confirm and then I can do my move.

Battle of Aachen (AP 12L+1 vs CP 5L)
246 11/13/2016 10:21:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message OK, my German flipped Corps retreats to Kassel.

Your 5th, 6th and 10th armies march into Koblenz

VP marker now at 9.

You can go ahead and resolve the Liege to Aachen attack.


245 11/13/2016 9:37:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I'll try to elaborate my action more
244 11/13/2016 9:28:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message The -1 is wrong; it was +1 for the pinning force

16L means 16+ on the Army Fire table (as 5s would mean 5 on the Corps Fire table). I'm used to this from Barbarossa to Berlin tournaments.

You must retreat [GEc] from Koblenz and then roll for the battle of Aachen.
243 11/13/2016 9:21:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Haakon, there are some things in your move that are unclear.

For one, I don't understand why you placed a -1 not beside the flanking attempt against Koblenz.

Also, in your overwhelming attack against it you have 18 factors which puts it on the 16+ table. Then you say '1L'. Why? I don't have an entrenchment there.

Also, do you want me to roll now? Not that it makes any difference. But I need to know when your turn has ended.


242 11/13/2016 9:12:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message FR5, FR6 & FR10 advance to Koblenz
241 11/13/2016 9:10:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message 7 loss factors
