91 3/21/2017 7:46:00 AM September 1914 Allies Message ok, so no advance, everything else should be the same, how was the graduation?
90 3/19/2017 9:02:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Look at post 9, they are all there. Relook your Strasbourg results and then correct and double check replacements.
89 3/19/2017 8:20:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message can you resend those options?
88 3/19/2017 8:19:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message lets play on, I like to get my ass kicked and see about fighting back, let me study the options, I negligently didn't do it and am now paying for it

GE 2. Flip 6th in Strasbourg and place (1st) in Essen
AH 1. Flip AH 1st in Tarnow

You may relook your replacements. Let me know. OMW to Ryan's graduation. Out of the loop for the rest of the week. We can restart if you want because of the new rules.... No worries. It will take a time or two...
84 3/14/2017 9:36:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message Man I hate to burst your bubble but your attack plan had bad intel. Our optional rules put a trench in my space which modifies your combat. In the end, my 3 = 4 hits now on the 9 table and your 5 = 4 hits on the 5 table (after applying the trench). Also, even if you did win the attack, remember the modified trench rules for August and September (- 2 to your role). The fort would have been still under siege.....

I need a map before I can apply my replacements. BTW, Ryan graduates from basic Thursday. We are gone tonight until the end of the week....

Message from Central Powers:
58 3/11/2017 3:13:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message You are right. Let's just stick with our standard cc played as an immediate response. Keep everything the same
57 3/11/2017 3:11:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message don't care that much, but it is a difference of two turns back for your card or three for mine, this is why I don't like playing cards backwards. We should just have a standing rule that if the next person plays their turn then it is too late.

Play yours, I wont play mine, lets just play on.

this was for the Russian flank attack on ah, so instead of losing 3 you lose 4 and the army is elim
52 3/11/2017 2:24:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Agreed - I think this was a one timer for both of us. Play your card. Swap AH (5th) and return XXX to RB.
51 3/11/2017 8:50:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message ok, if I can play a combat card that I forgot to play too on that attack because I was doing on road which would have given you 4 hits and same result. I realized after I rolled in my original RU attack.

we may not want to start to play combat cards after rolls or a turn has passed? dangerous slide. up to you though.


50 3/11/2017 5:37:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Combat #56: 2 / Withdrawal
Defending units negate one required Corps step loss and instead retreat 1 space. This also cancels any retreat caused by losing the combat. If no Corps step(s) lost, an Army step loss may be negated.

It is a little late but I was not paying attention. I was traveling this week and wanted to play this on my Austrian loss but forgot. Any issues?

Emily is looking for a job, will go to grad school in a year (unfortunately picked a profession that you need a masters degree for). Will be hiking a chunk of the AT this summer (northern leg), that is her immediate focus. Why cant parents take 3-4 months off to go hiking?
23 2/27/2017 9:30:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Good to hear all is well. What are her plans?

No longer a trench with BEF - check optional rules. You gained 4 for the Italians but lost the BEF / Brussels trench..... Please review those options. There are a few interesting ones. Sedan will give me a vp. I will need the map later to confirm my advances.
22 2/26/2017 9:11:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message also, (bef) retreats to Calais and FR (5) retreats to Chateau
