187 6/15/2017 4:02:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message I would have to agree..... Aborted attack, no loss to either and card wasted
186 6/14/2017 9:07:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message Scott that is all well and fine, but read the card: NORDLICHT*: Axis units may attack Leningrad.
Axis units may only attack Leningrad this round.
May not play during Spring Thaw"

And now read 15.1: "Spring Thaw Players may not play OPS cards during the first two rounds of Spring Turns. They may take an ‘Automatic 1 OPS’, or Events that double as OPS, unless otherwise noted on the card.

Now reading both of those statements, there is some wording that affect your playing of this card. Let's break it down, shall we. 15.1: Last 6 words "unless otherwise noted on the card". Now combine this with the last sentence of the card: "May not play during Spring Thaw". Putting the two together you get that during the spring thaw you cannot play this card.

So I stand firm on message 184.


185 6/14/2017 8:47:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message We should be good. See 15.1, second sentence. I played a dual use card
184 6/13/2017 5:56:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message So we now have an issue. This cannot be played during Spring Thaw (in which we are). Therefore according to the unwritten intelligence rules "When there are "intel" errors for attacks, they become wasted ops." (Message 86)

So no attack took place and your three armies stay in Luga

144 6/6/2017 11:43:00 AM Winter 1942 Axis Message I only read the Roslav part because it is a two word name - did not continue to see it stated Smolensk...

OK, so 4th is in Gomal. (2d) retreated to Vitebsk-Orsha. Any advance
143 6/6/2017 11:41:00 AM Winter 1942 Allied Message Sorry, I thought that this "Roslav:Smolensk" was good enough. No attack on Gomel occurred.

So GE4 is still in Gomel and (GE2) is in Bobruisk?
142 6/6/2017 11:32:00 AM Winter 1942 Axis Message So Roslav attacked Smolensk? I thought you attacked Gomel.... You did not identify clearly enough for me... Gomel had the 4th but I flipped it and retreated to Bobruisk... It did not happen?
141 6/6/2017 11:29:00 AM Winter 1942 Allied Message 2d in Smolensk was attacked, message 134. They got flipped and need to retreat 2.

Do you have anybody in Gomel?

139 6/6/2017 11:04:00 AM Winter 1942 Allied Message I am worried about the US as well. I had the FDR card before I could play it and spent it. I can hope that the US joins in mid '42 before the Germans onslaught hits me again.

Scott I had GE2 in Smolensk and GE4 in Gomel. It makes no mater just want to make sure that you are retreating from Smolensk, yes?
