711 11/27/2017 8:48:00 PM Turn 1 Rob Message Dave, Iíve been looking at one thing that neither of us have done, but might be key. Check 13.3, Stopping a Retreat. This might really help in some spots. Might be worth another run through since Mark has a full plate at the moment. Also, Iíd give Rome another shot. Itíd be interesting to see how the design has evolved, and plays in a couple of hours.
710 11/27/2017 8:33:00 PM Turn 1 Rob Message Still don't know if Sam and Deb are coming with me. Lots of variables with class schedules, Mom caretaking, etc. Might not know till after final exams in a couple of weeks. Don't worry if you give my room away, I can sleep on the floor with my trusty air mattress...that thing is more comfortable than my bed!
709 11/27/2017 8:29:00 PM Turn 1 Rob Message Dave,
I read the rules and watched some videos, but have not actually played it yet. By all means post it and see if we can get some takers. Can definitely be played to conclusion in one day.
As to the bet, you talk BIG, but I don't hear any talk of doubling down! How about it? TWO BEERS!
708 11/27/2017 8:22:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message I just took a look at the Game On website and Pericules is not posted to be played at this point.

Have you played it or solo'd it yet? Like I mentioned we could post it and see if we can find 2 other takers.
707 11/27/2017 8:16:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message I threw down the gauntlet to Mark. LOL

There is a Game On web page where you can join games others have not filled yet or propose you own. Is Pericules a 4 person game. We could post it for play and see if we can find 2 more. Is it a day type game or longer.

What you is scoop are you coming up alone or is the family coming up as well.

As for the Steeler Jets bet you do realize that the Steelers would have to lose the rest of their games and the Jets will all of theirs. Winning powerball is more likely at this point. Just saying.
706 11/27/2017 8:01:00 PM Turn 1 Rob Message Dave,
I think I am getting very close to agreeing with you. I got worse than average bridge rolls, and it doesn't seem to have made much difference. I think the key is pushing the extra battalions into Arnhem on the first turn, which makes killing 1 AB VERY difficult. I got a little lucky with the weather this turn, but have had worse than average luck on the combats. We should definitely play Mark and see if he has any tricks he can show us. One thing I noticed, you need at least two step units to form ZOC bonds, which makes it even tougher for the Germans to prevent allied engineer units from ferrying units across river around Nijmegen. So, maybe Monty was right about Market-Garden? See if Mark wants to play us, either way I'm good for the Ardennes game as well, in addition to anything else you want to play.
Have you played Pericles? I think you would like it! Is there anyway to see if anyone will be playing it? Is there a sign-up list or something?
Lets suspend this current Holland '44 game. Maybe start a new game of Ardennes in the next couple of days so I can try to remember the rules....being old SUCKS!
Hey, the Steelers are looking good, but don't order that beer YET!
705 11/27/2017 7:25:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message 1/1 Hold; I get to pick your loss and I lose Grabner as the lead unit.

I really don't see how the germans have really have much of a shot in the particular game or any game at all and here is why.

There is no way that I can stop you from crossing the river at some point somewhere. Initially it won't be in mass but you have more than enough turns to slow feed them across. The germans flat don't have enough units to stop it at all places unless I am doing something drastically wrong. At some point you will totally wear will wear out the city hex at Nijmegan of troops or just capture it from behind. Either way.

As for ever eliminating the 1AB up at Arnhem that is an impossibility. There is no way that the Germans will ever get enough power to collape the pocket any further and a 1-1 and 2-1 shots the British can't possibly lose enough steps to lose.

Do want to keep going? I think you will have plenty of units to kick me out of Nijmegan in a few turns, cross the Waal and then liberate the units in Arnhem. Not a chance that I can cut the road. There are just way to many allied units and not nearly enough good Germans ones.

Maybe we ought to challenge Mark S. to a game where he is the Germans and we run the allies to see if the Germans have any kind of shot.

694 11/26/2017 6:28:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message Just a small change. It wasn't as dire as I thought. Play file 36 and then 37 which has the adjustment at Nijmegan. Makes no sense to attack there anymore with your heavies showing up next turn.
693 11/26/2017 6:03:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message I need to make some adjustments to that last move. I left the door wide open for you to walk right thru. Stand by for updated file.

The consim board seems almost dead from a posting perspective.

659 11/23/2017 2:56:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message It is turn 5 which is night. No weather.

I do have Breaking the Chains by the same designer and Compass which I played two years ago at Game On.


658 11/23/2017 2:56:00 PM Turn 1 Rob Message OK, it appears that it is actually a NIGHT turn....

654 11/23/2017 2:34:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message I think Illusion of Glory is reaching the point of playable. The changes to the rules and player aid cards have been rolled in. Lets watch it through the end of December. We could always give Enemy Action Ardeness a crack live or 1866.
653 11/23/2017 2:05:00 PM Turn 1 Rob Message Happy Thanksgiving Dave!
Will run my move in just a bit.
Any ideas on a game(s) for the Con?
Take a look at South China Sea by Compass Games. I just got it and am working through the rules, and it looks very interesting. Can be played with 2, 3, 4 or 5 players!
652 11/22/2017 11:02:00 PM Turn 1 Dave Message You were correct on the odds. I did my advance. Back to you for turn 5.

I will be around most of the weekend. No big trips planned.
