Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
30 4/22/2017 2:00:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #11: 2 / Oberost
German units may now attack spaces containing RU forts. (They may always besiege such spaces). May still be played for War Status after CP War Status is 4 or higher.

War Status increased to 3

Message from Central Powers:
CP4
War Status=3
29 4/22/2017 1:59:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Jeff, you're exactly right. The Near East was once a myriad of strategies involving the different units. Now the game is more focused on the western front and the occupation and removal of French and Belgium territories.
28 4/22/2017 12:43:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Okay we should be all set now.

Interesting quirk with the Vassal module. They put the VP changes in on the board - however if you hit the hide units button to see what's under them it also hides the changes, kind of defeats the purpose. Most likely they put the changes in as an overlay and then didn't create a multi level hide button like ASL uses.

Interesting changes with the VP's, looks like it took the points away from the middle east and added them to the western front. I would think that would have totally changed the way the game is played, as opposed to the way it was designed.

I'm thinking that decreases to a large extent the value of any cards that impact the middle east.

Might also increase the learning curve and ability to bring new players into the fold. Kind of like the loss of those players of SL who didn't make the jump to ASL when it came out back in the day.

27 4/22/2017 12:30:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #57: 3 / Russian Cavalry
Place the two Russian Cavalry corps in any one space inside Russia containing a supplied Russian Army. They may not be placed in violation of the stacking limit.

Message from Allies:
AP Action 3 moves offboard -> Other Event (AP)*
* RUCC moves offboard -> Kamenets-Podolski *
* RUCC moves offboard -> Kamenets-Podolski *

I don't believe this is a reinforcement card???
26 4/22/2017 11:53:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Okay War Status should now be correct.

Message from Allies:
Fixing - again :-)
22 4/21/2017 9:53:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Need some clarification: I am assuming you played the event card wrong last turn and that you wanted to play it as British reinforcements. You understand you nor I can get reinforcements in August. I am assuming that you want to play it as replacements then. If you want to change it to something else, please let me know and as long as you don't march into Berlin maybe I'll be ok with it.
I will advance A5 into Belgrade, besieging the fort.
Also, there are many changes in the VP cities playing the historical version. If you cannot find the changes, refer to the historical handout I passed out at PrezCon in February. If you don't have the changes send me a fax or your address and Ill get a sheet to you!
21 4/21/2017 8:21:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Allied Powers> - I take 5 hits, you take 2

- I find it interesting that you can't stop a retreat from a fort.
- Guess they figured the Army was outside of it.
- So need to retreat 2

16 4/20/2017 11:18:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Combat #57: 3 / Kaisertreu
An AH attack or defence adds +1drm.

15 4/20/2017 11:18:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #10: 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.

Message from Central Powers:
I note that you have a mandatory attack with the French and a likely attack would be Strasbourg. Hence, beefing it up.

Message from Allies:
Allied Powers> - Hi Johnny,
- Interesting you pulled everything out of Mulhouse.
- But then after looking at there is no reason for me to move in there.
- Figure that allows you to concentrate more firepower on Nancy.
- Thinking I'm going to need more troops fast here so....
* AP Action 2 moves offboard -> BR Reinf*
* BR 1 moves offboard -> LONDON *

Place a Level 1 Trench (not improve a Level 1 to Level 2) in any space occupied by a supplied friendly Army. Both players may now entrench. Only one player may play this card as an event.

Message from Allies:

11 4/17/2017 2:07:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Just to clarify:
FRC is the full strength French corps. It's good advice to get into the habit of listing the total corps left in the Reserve Box once you use it. For instance, your French corps taken from the reserve box now leaves 6 full strength corps left, with 0 half strength left. Simplified could be written as Fc from rb 6/0. G2 and G3 adv to Sedan
10 4/17/2017 1:51:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Allied Powers> - Hope you had a good Easter!!
- Catching up all the games today with luck!

5 4/12/2017 5:07:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Combat #6: 2 / Withdrawal
Defending units negate one required Corps step loss and instead must retreat 1 space. Full strength Attacking units may advance. If no Corps step(s) lost, an Army step loss may be negated. See rule 12.6 for details.

Message from Allies:
Allied Powers> - Hi Johnny,
- File came through fine.
- I'm so used to using the logfile with ASL that I'll most likely do the same here.
- Especially for when I screw up you can see what I was thinking.
* CP Action 1 to Other Event
* GE 2 moves Koblenz -> Liege*
* GE 1 moves Aachen -> Liege*
* Attack created in offboard
* Attack created in offboard
- Interesting, attack the BEF would seem a roll of the dice there, although it would punch a larger hole I guess.
- In this case I did luck out and draw the withdraw card so we will go with that.
- Regards, Jeff

3 4/12/2017 9:18:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #1: 3 / Guns of August
May only be played in the first Action Round of the August 1914 turn. The Liege fort is destroyed. Place the GE 1st and 2nd Armies in the Liege space. The GE 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Armies are activated for Combat.

War Status increased to 2

Message from Central Powers:
CP Turn 1, Action 1
Jeff, this is a typical start for the CP side. All G1,2,3 w/15A attack F5 w/3A. If you have the withdrawal card, this is a good time to play it with the hope I don't roll a "7" in loss factors. If you want the VASSAL map I can mail it as an attachment with email.
