178 3/13/2017 11:34:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message One of the map errors is the RUc move from lurks to Zhitomir. Attack to destroy the fort?
177 3/13/2017 10:47:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message #1. First line item 167 was A 4 Ops card and with our discussion I fail to list the fourth move which was Koblentz. German 3rd Army move to sedan and the corps went to Brussels.

You are correct I only plotted two of your three parts of your move where you had three Russian armies move to Munkacs. I redoing my move based on that part of your move I missed. I played a three Ops card which I will still play but will do different moves in light of your massive move of the Southern Russian armies

Attack Kovel, the German 10th Army and AH 4A atk Lutsk for two ops. Auto destroy RU corps and fort. No possible damage to CP. ADVANCE GE 10A to Lutsk.

Move Uzhgorod, damaged AH CORPS Drebrecen, AH 1A to Przemysl to join GE corps. (AH 2A) to Gorlice to jon AH Corps.
176 3/12/2017 11:45:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message (AH3) is flipped. your map is correct but your orders didn't reflect it. now that you know I have 3 RU armies at Munkacs, do you still wish to move to Cluj?
175 3/12/2017 11:41:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message I think that's it.
174 3/12/2017 11:40:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message our order in 167 no longer included moving Koblenz, as shown on your map, but you had 1 more op on that 4 card, which I didn't notice you hadn't used. looks like you meant it to be GE3 to Sedan and GEc to Brussels.
173 3/12/2017 11:37:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message (RUc) Insterberg is flipped
172 3/12/2017 11:35:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message the two GEc at Warsaw moved to Lublin and Bialystok

167 3/8/2017 2:20:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message It seems I'm always learning in this game. The game is always different.

Move Essen, GE 9A move to Sedan
Move Leige, GE 2A & 1A MOVE TO Sedan,Cambria and end Brussels. +3 VP.

Move Warsaw, stop seige. Move corps to Bialystok and move corps to Lublin
166 3/7/2017 8:55:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message 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.
165 3/7/2017 8:54:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message SUD is not quite as broad as that. It allows GEc to stack with a single AH unit. A typical SUD stack is an AH army and 2xGEc. It is simulating an historical army formation, not a more general combining of all the armies. At any rate, it doesn't even help with a stack that has an AH army, an AHc, and a GE unit of any type.

It's very useful, but it is narrowly defined.
164 3/7/2017 5:52:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Sorry I meant Sud Army, which I have played as an event. This allows GE and AH UNITS TO STACK AND MOVE FOR 1 OPS.
163 3/7/2017 5:50:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message No it does not take two Ops when Oberon has been played as an event which I did
162 3/6/2017 7:30:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message and it takes 2 ops to activate Kovel with armies from AH and GE together.
161 3/6/2017 7:26:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message #142 RUc moved Lutsk to Zhitomir.
160 3/6/2017 11:03:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 4 / Austria - Hungary Reinforcements (7th Army)

Message from Central Powers:
Place German 7th army in Essen. The rules say place in supply source
157 3/5/2017 11:53:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message I really looked at rules and where I got confused was between entrenching and besieging. The trench alternative rules is you get +1 for every turn you fail to entrench. So Warsaw is still under siege.
156 3/4/2017 11:05:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Thanks, I was fairly certain I was missing a French unit. I now have board updated so can do move

143 3/4/2017 10:32:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Okay, GE 8TH does not advance.
142 3/4/2017 10:24:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message I should have waited. my move comes after your advance decision, so you really can't advance without losing GE8. :)
There are only 3 ops on my 4 op card. assuming that you stay in Bialystok, use it for the very peaceful Lutsk to Zhitomir.

We start at 6 a.m. and go to 10 p.m. here is the updated file and since this is the end of the term I will advance to grodno. I'm sending my game file as soon as I finish this message.
138 3/3/2017 1:51:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message did you wish to retract retreat?
your move in either event.
137 2/27/2017 10:11:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message OOS threat vs Grodno.
136 2/27/2017 10:09:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message if you advance to Grodno, I can put you OOS with my (RUc). maybe that's OK with you.

the result at Metz is 7/7. you have 10+3(city) shifted 1 column by trench to 15A.

7FL is forced as GE5 to (GEc). well, could be GE4, but it must be an army to a damaged corps.

same true for FR. FR5 to (FRc).

132 2/26/2017 1:15:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message advance?
131 2/26/2017 1:14:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message In that case I'd like to amend my retreat in a way that will discourage advance. :)

RUc still retreats to Kovno.
(RUc) retreats to Insterberg.
130 2/25/2017 11:53:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message That is correct. When we caught the Warsaw need for two corps I moved one back from Bialystok to Warsaw.
129 2/25/2017 11:27:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message I am using the map you sent me. does this mean that there is no GEc with GEc in Bialystok?
128 2/25/2017 10:22:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message You did not wait for my advance. My GE 8TH Army was not hurt in last battle and will advance into Grodno. You cannot flank attack as your corp in Vila is a 0-1-3 or no attack factor. Will this effect your last move?
127 2/25/2017 10:09:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message This is your last card play for this turn right?
126 2/25/2017 10:08:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message I have on my map two German Corps as I took one away from 8th army and returned to Warsaw when we saw this problem earlier.

I notice you have only 1 GEc at Warsaw which means the fort is not sieged. I'm not sure you were allowed to leave a force insufficient to siege, but we'll move forward.
