361 10/3/2017 10:24:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Thanks for the game, Alan. I know our style is that we don't like to comment on the dice, but seriously...

Those Allied dice were terrible.

A couple of things from my side of the board:

I traded ten fresh in Carentan including 3 arty for the threat from Montebourg. It wasn't nothing, and I'm sure you played carefully to deny me the chance from Montebourg, but really I think a fully stacked Carentan would have been better for me.

But I'm not sure. I like the idea of maintaining that force, but I need to think very carefully about the 6th and about staging my Carentan defense. This could have gone the other way.

Every now and then I fail to get 12ss/arty where I want it, and this was one of those games. When I'm in no danger at all at Caen, I start it in Zone A along with 12ss/26. The idea is to regroup into Houlgate. In this game, I thought I might need to run from Zone B, but I never got the opportunity to move the arty to Zone A. On hindsight, I maybe should have just regrouped to A, then regrouped to Houlgate to start the 9th. With the envelopment threat in the L2 rules, I think I need to play with more discipline. I think 12ss/arty has to go to Houlgate to preemptively bombard a kill stack in Merville.

Your thoughts on the game?
360 10/3/2017 7:39:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message OK well, I don't really see any path forward here, so I'll throw in the towel. I probably played this turn wrong. Rather than trying to load up Carentan maybe I should have just bombarded and tried to put together a big assault from Catz on the 12th.

Anyway, I much appreciate the lesson, thanks!
