236 3/14/2017 11:40:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message Only the game owner (Central Powers) is allowed to delete the game.
235 3/14/2017 11:39:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message It tells me that the central powers player may only delete.
234 3/14/2017 11:13:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I tried and it won't let me, because I listed you as game owner. It should let you delete.
233 3/14/2017 9:26:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message you can delete?
232 3/1/2017 10:57:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Sent you an email off of acts.
231 3/1/2017 10:43:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message One of the things I think makes this game so balanced is that each side has their own deck so deck management is important and will luck of one side drawing all the good cards is avoided. The luck factor is still there but you don't have like in FTP one side drawing all the CC and discarders or in TWS one side getting all the 4ops and the other 1OPS. I wished more designers adopted this. Some designers like Mark do not like the separate deck model and see the wild draw luck as just wild draw luck, so what! It happens! To which I say isn't there a better way? I lost a game of FTP last year to a good player who had great cards to which I could not respond Killed of Jj on opening play, got two SP from beau, I had to pull back to Richmond with only 2 SP in the east. he attacked and killed another east SP. I placed and SRed all I could to Richmond for 9 SP but he had a 15 factor army sitting in in Hanover. Large battle with a CC kills 4 and then 2 more with 2nd play I now have 3 SP in the East, JJ is in the dead pile and I am toast on the 5th card paly of the game.
230 3/1/2017 10:14:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I couldn't begin to replace my losses this turn playing 2OPS and I absolutely have to play the Russian Turkish Army for event. really balanced.
229 3/1/2017 10:13:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Thy point is valid, and I see what you mean.

Will set up another (maybe TS, we will see) later on and continue the practice.
228 3/1/2017 10:11:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message 2 cards that I need to play for reinforcements, one 3 OPS that I just played that put the hurt of the Germans and one card that I need to hold. Just a matter of how you view it. I knew I needed to play the 3 OPS for replacements but saw an opportunity to give the Germans a black eye so I played it for OPS and got lucky with a 7 German loss, now I have problems but you are on the ropes in your view. Like I said you are actually OK as the Germans as I am spent. Pull back, play replacement cards and probably get the big 2 army German reinforcement card next turn.

227 3/1/2017 10:04:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I have 4 2s this turn!
226 3/1/2017 10:03:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message You're probably right...At least until we get to Total War, when all hell breaks loose.

Agreed, remarkable game in many ways. But you have to admit, that hand of 2s (I think 4 or 5 CCs???) Was really bad...
225 3/1/2017 10:01:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I do not have a decent replacement card so you would have been OK in the West as I would have to stand down.
This game is really rather remarkable, we are usually in better shape that we think from looking at our card imagining the other side having great cards when often the are facing similar challenges.
224 3/1/2017 9:56:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #29: 4 / Yudenitch (RU Reinforcements)
Place the Russian CAU Army in any supplied space in Russia on the Near East map. Can enter prior to TU entry.

Message from Allies:
I had this to keep you on your toes.
223 3/1/2017 9:56:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message you will probably draw 2 next turn
222 3/1/2017 9:55:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I like the somewhat slower pace of TWS by PBEM.
221 3/1/2017 9:44:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I am probably burnt on TS for the time being. Played games well into the hundreds thanks to Vassal and the digital version. If you have the digital version we can hook up one evening. Although I probably do play best PBEM it really doesnt suit the game well. But we can consider it if you like. :-)
220 3/1/2017 9:40:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I also would like a chance to take you down in TWS.
219 3/1/2017 9:19:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Actually my hand wasn't that bad. Had a 4 remaining for RPs. Got confused with my game against my brother.

Still ugly though.
218 3/1/2017 9:19:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message OK, will do this evening or tomorrow. I had another Ah reinforcement in my hands but no ops higher than 3, and no German reinforcements. Yuck.
217 3/1/2017 9:17:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message Set up the side you like,
216 3/1/2017 9:13:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Indeed, but with all the dead Austrians and a hand full of 2s, I had little choice but to use that card for RPs. I just now was forced to spend another valuable reinforcement card (based on my hand) to patch the west after you advanced 250,000 men to the front.

I have learned a lot about POG and think I can play well enough now, but hand micromanagement often eludes me, especially as the CP player. Granted, that is one of the best and most tense parts of the game though.

I hate to do so, but I am willing to back out of this one early if you are OK with that. We can start another as you like. Let me know.

As for TS, thanks...But I just got eliminated in a lightning fast game against an opponent from New Zealand who steamrolled Asia early as USSR and never looked back. I hung in until turn 8 and conceded just before he was about to end it with Wargames. I probably know TS better than any other game, even if luck at wbc continues to play against me.
215 3/1/2017 8:17:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I did notice that you played German 10th army reinforcement as replacements, long time before he shows back up.
214 3/1/2017 8:14:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message congrads on your TWS tourney, I had some real stinker hands in two of my losses losing one on the second turn as the US
213 2/28/2017 9:19:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message You should not be attacking until you have reinforced , seen and survived worse
212 2/28/2017 9:15:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Do you believe the game is tilted now to AP, since you kicked me out of Sedan and have out-reinforced me early?
211 2/28/2017 8:53:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message BR 4 Aelim
210 2/28/2017 8:53:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message adv F 6A and F10A into Sedan T1 destroyed
209 2/28/2017 8:49:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I have BR1A, BR2A and BR4A in Cambrai - no BR3A. Pick another?
208 2/28/2017 8:48:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message OOPS, I gave myself 5, not 7 losses!

Lose (GE1A), replacement GEc and the GEc in the space.

I will now retreat from Sedan - retreat to Liege via Brussels.

And just like that, the game is lost in the West. I just can't seem to get my reinforcements played timely early on with the CP, which was obviously the difference.
207 2/28/2017 8:47:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message you owe me 2 more factors in Sedan ?
206 2/28/2017 8:46:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message You lost 7factors in sedan but only removed a flipped Army and flipped its C?
205 2/28/2017 8:45:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message OK missed that we are good
204 2/28/2017 8:44:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message Elim B 3A and replace with C flipped n 2 C in RB
Flip FR 3A Verdun

wait to see if you stick in Sedan with only a Flipped German A there?
203 2/28/2017 8:44:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I moved the GEc from Bremen in
202 2/28/2017 8:41:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message I had the Sedan attack at 12-9 as your GE 1A was already flipped from attacking Brussels#185? You have to flip your other Army?
201 2/28/2017 8:38:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message 7/5
