243 6/22/2017 6:45:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message However...

Surviving the first counterattack, the 7:4, allowed me to fork you, and stuff Merville.
242 6/22/2017 6:43:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message Yes, I think I'll make that re-roll of early 9th weather change a standard part of my play and I won't agonize over it very much. I think the odds of a later weather change is about 1 in 4 (I should know that), and a later weather change, if it's late enough, say impulse 6, is way less damaging.

On the other hand, I don't like my counterattack into Catz. I think there was only a 1 in 4 chance or thereabouts that Catz remains contested at end of turn, and in the 3 out of 4, I wreck one of my most valuable units.

If the payoff in making you take impulses you don't want to take was higher, then maybe, or if I had two units that moved in the same impulse, each creating a different problem and forking you, then it would be different. But I think I just threw away a good unit for no gain.
241 6/21/2017 10:57:00 PM Turn 9 Allies Message No bridge. +5, down 3 for 2 hits is just enough to kick him out to St. Jean. Day-ender.

Good call on the weather re-roll. Refits to you.

9A3

Activate Bretteville, repair Bayeux, 5+.
222 6/18/2017 11:14:00 AM Turn 9 Allies Message I don't think it's crazy at all. Maybe at first glance it seems strange, but I like it.

I mean, I know this: I went from "I'm getting my ass handed to me" to "Holy shit, I may have a crack here." And while the gut may not be a perfect metric, more than a few players much better than me have said only use it on a gamechanger -- otherwise hold it. That certainly had that potential. Sun on 9A2? Man. And yep, my next two pulses were for sure going to be air-air.

I know 3:2 is +1 the same as 12:11 is +1, but hooooboy, did my eyes get big when I saw those boxcars. That coulda been something!

Not on my Vassal computer . . . I'll move in a bit.



221 6/18/2017 10:45:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message I think if I knew that the weather wouldn't change, the re-roll is a good play. My concern is that I've still got prime weather change territory to go through. As I think about it, I like the re-roll, but I could be wrong.
220 6/18/2017 10:43:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message Whiff. 9A3 up. Still cloudy.

217 6/18/2017 10:40:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message Would I do that in a tournament? Man, I don't know. But I thought that one way this game could turn on me is with a weather change, and an especially early one, too, which lets you probably focus on an area and limit my response. So, nuts? Maybe. But if the weather doesn't change this turn, it robs you of 2 5-spot bombardments, too. So. 2 APs to me, starting with the target:

Tgt to D1, pak to D2.
