251 2/18/2017 7:00:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Thank you Paul for the game. Yes, I had quite a few good card draws this game.
250 2/18/2017 1:47:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message OK, that's it. I concede.

AP has a hand full of 2 point cards, apart from Yudenich and Romania. No hope of making progress on any front, or of advancing WS.

Very well played sir - although you had the benefit of a dream card draw, that could hardly have been better if you had chosen them.

Cheers,
Paul.

May only be played after "Bolshevik Revolution". RU units may no longer attack. CP units may not attack RU units except TU units may attack on the Near East map. Both sides may still move into unoccupied spaces and may still suffer attrition, besiege forts, and resolve sieges. Also see 5.5.2.

236 2/16/2017 1:54:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message Also, GE c's should flood the Italian zone...cc's then applicable and they provide A LOT of punch
235 2/16/2017 1:52:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message No, you haven't been playing bad, other than the Italian mistake (don't bring them in without supporting allies). If you lose Italy, that, is almost always the game.
234 2/16/2017 1:51:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message Yes, AU 7 advances into key space of Nevers.

Agree about Italy - Italians can't stand against a few lowly AU armies. Need the allied corps to support.
233 2/16/2017 1:51:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message Have I been playing particularly badly, under the circumstances?

232 2/16/2017 1:49:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message CP 2LF, AP 5LF. (FR5) elim, r/w FRc, that elim too. (FR6) retreats to Orleans. Advance?

I'll have to think about whether to concede now.

AP card draw was awful; there was no way to avoid being well behind CP to TW. And CP has enjoyed so many high OPS cards! I could never get any pressure going on any front.

I probably should have handled Italy differently, maybe had a stack of BR corps ready to SR in. But that was OPS I didn't have, and I didn't want to postpone Italian entry. Maybe I should have. Oh well.

228 2/16/2017 1:24:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message In reserve, 2 ITc.

IT starts with 4 corps in RB, I had to bring on 2 due to elim of IT1 and IT4, so 2 still left in RB.

227 2/16/2017 1:22:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message Exactly so.

226 2/16/2017 1:21:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message ...and 1 IT C in res?
225 2/16/2017 1:20:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message Rome is now IT2, (IT3) and (IT5) with trench 1...IT (c) in Ancona...IT c at Taranto...correct?
224 2/16/2017 1:18:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message OK, in last Battle for Rome, IT had 4 LF. That is taken as ITc elim, IT5 flipped.

My last move stands, so Rome is now IT2, (IT3) and (IT5) with trench 1.

223 2/16/2017 1:15:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message Just list all the units in Italy
222 2/16/2017 1:15:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message no prob...just tell me your current deployment in Italy
221 2/16/2017 1:15:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message Other IT units are (ITc) Ancona, ITc Taranto.

220 2/16/2017 1:13:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message Oops, my mistake, I calculated the 4 LF wrong.

Gimme a second to change that.

219 2/16/2017 1:12:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message what else is in Italy?
218 2/16/2017 1:10:00 AM Summer 1915 Allies Message I tried entrenching Rome in Spring 1915, but missed the roll by 1 (message #180).

Before your last attack on Rome, there was IT2, IT5 and ITc. You inflicted 4 LF, so IT5 disappears, replaced by ITc, that goes too.

So it's now just IT2 and ITc, joined by (IT3) from Pescara.

217 2/16/2017 1:10:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message ned your italian deployment prior to my move
