57 2/4/2017 10:15:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Hi John - I'm going to close this game out. No sense it having it linger at this point.
56 2/3/2017 1:27:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Change Moderator player Moderator player changed from Tom Gregorio to BPAPoGAdmin
55 12/9/2016 6:43:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message You SR'd that AHc corps in Czernowitz to Konigsberg back in message #15.

I'd recommend moving that AH6A in Sarajevo to Szeged or Timisvar so that the Serbs don't get too frisky.
54 12/8/2016 11:01:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message OK, with the 2 PO points I will move back the 3A in Tarnopol back to Stanislaw and the AHc in Czernowitz > Munkacs
53 12/7/2016 7:06:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message I'd advise against that move

Your forces in Tarnopol are now being susceptible to being cut out of supply by RU units going into Lemberg, Stanislaw, and Czernowtiz.

In POG, supply is important - Armies that die OOS are PERMANENTLY eliminated from the game. Because the AP moves last, and supply is checked after their last turn, the CP should not expose themselves.

Want to adjust your move? You're far better off moving the AH3(A) back, rather than trying to reinforce that forward position.
52 12/6/2016 9:47:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Good now I know how to undo a played card, and where it says Combat Card on ACTS. I played it as an OP card (2) only moved one unit.
51 12/6/2016 9:45:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 2 / Von Francois

49 12/6/2016 9:42:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message T1CP6 AHc in Stanislaw>Tarnopol
No over movement.
48 12/6/2016 8:10:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message That's a combat card. You can add it to a battle and reuse it if you win. We're you playing it for 2 ops? There's no battle for you to use it right now....
47 12/6/2016 8:04:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Question, How long does this stay in effect? One turn, one card play, or something else?
46 12/6/2016 8:03:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 2 / Von Francois
A GE attack vs. RU units adds a +1 drm. May be used against spaces with RU and other nationalities.

Message from Central Powers:
45 12/4/2016 7:30:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Your defender, AH3A, is also flipped for 2LF. Since it was a 2/2 tie, no retreat necessary. You're up next.
44 12/4/2016 7:28:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Got it on the reduction, you meet the LF number of the unit until losses are satisfied.(if your LF number would have been 1 it would have been taken off board.) My AH3A is flipped.

I have not rolled the battle yet. Will do it tonight. I know much more now then I did a week ago.

Message from Central Powers:
T1AP5 Tarnopol AP attack
5 at Tarnopol
42 12/4/2016 7:12:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message It would have taken 4LF to send my army to the EB.
41 12/4/2016 7:11:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message No. You only inflicted 2LF. My RU3A has 2LF at full strength so you flipped it, nothing more.
40 12/4/2016 7:07:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Took the RU3A off board to Replacement pool flipped.
Replaced a RUc into Dubno. Correct action?
39 12/4/2016 7:02:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message RU3A flips in Dubno, you need to roll my return fire at 5LF.

Also - what's the deal with your game with Bruno? Don't you need to to resolve his opening attack?

Message from Central Powers:
33 12/3/2016 9:18:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message With regards to the FRc attack on Mulhouse... I would normally attack on the 1c column. It's down two levels because of the defending terrain (mountain) and trench. 0c is the minimum column. You should read the Mandatory Offense rules , section 7.0 (half a page). Section 7.1.4 specifically governs my situation; if I didn't get in an FR attack this turn it would have cost me a VP. MOs are KEY in this game - don't miss them!
32 12/3/2016 9:15:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message RU2A starts in Lomza, the space NE of Warsaw. It then traverses Bialystok on its way to Grodno.
31 12/2/2016 11:40:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message On the Belfort attack, it was 0-4 because of entrenchment? FRc is eliminate to Allied Reserve Box and put into the F corp stack? No other action occurs? I have not read all the rules yet, so why was it necessary to attack to meet a requirement?
30 12/2/2016 11:29:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message For my education, what route did the RU2A take to get to Grodno? I see RO as neutral and German,and AH units in the way? I'm sure its OK I just don't see it yet.
29 12/2/2016 12:40:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #10: 3 / French Reinforcements (10th Army)

Message from Central Powers:
27 11/30/2016 10:21:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Replacements are not taken until the end of the turn. Italy is not in the game yet so they won't get any.
26 11/30/2016 10:15:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message You flipped some of your units back to full strength? Something like this; brought in 1 Italian army, 3 Russian army's, 1 British army,and flipped some French back to full strength?
25 11/30/2016 10:07:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message OK, replacements not reinforcements. Where are they on the board? Or how does replacements work? Looking it up now.
24 11/30/2016 8:53:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Good check, though!
23 11/30/2016 8:53:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I played the reinforcement card as replacements, not the reinforcement event.
22 11/30/2016 8:43:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message On one of my game charts: "1914 Special Rules"
Neither player may play a Reinforcement card on the August 1914 turn.
Just reading the rules and trying to figure things out here. What say you?
