(which still has the juice to get to 1706)
I make it 1706 now has:
2-7 Ind Mot Art
2-7 10Ind Mot Art

is that right?
61 10/14/2017 11:51:00 AM Turn 1 Simon- Italians Message >>> Actually I'll go with my previous decision to not have any more combats. 2:1 odds is not happy for me so I'll go with the Exploitation moves already stated. Over to you<<<

* OK, got it
Yeah, it's an unusual combat table. Very attritional, but any combat at 1:1 or better is guaranteed an r, even at 1:3 there's a 2/3 chance of an r. However, the r can be cancelled by taking a step loss
60 10/14/2017 10:36:00 AM Turn 1 Dave - Brits Message Actually I'll go with my previous decision to not have any more combats. 2:1 odds is not happy for me so I'll go with the Exploitation moves already stated. Over to you
59 10/12/2017 11:39:00 AM Turn 1 Simon- Italians Message >>> COMBAT 3:
0510 vs 0610<<<

* I moved a 1-5 ART into 0610 during my reaction move, so I make it that the raw odds are 8-5. I'll also use my heroic defense chit to make the final odds 1:1
Could you pull me another chit when you get the chance? Thanks
(if you want to cancel the attack due to mis-calculating the odds, that's fine)
58 10/12/2017 9:19:00 AM Turn 1 Dave - Brits Message COMBAT 3:

No chits for me. You?

56 10/11/2017 11:28:00 PM Turn 1 Simon- Italians Message >>> Exploitation move <<<

Result is 1/1r
- I'll flip 5Ind in 0508
Your retreat (I don't think you can) <<<

* I flip 3-5 to (1-5)

that leaves me with a (1-5) still in 0608

* no odds mod for river unless all units attacking across river (11.1)
so final odds 9-1

COMBAT 2:

Do these look ok?

change move:
(Col 1-7) MOT ART 0811 > 1112
43 10/8/2017 8:33:00 PM Turn 1 Dave - Brits Message Oops - sorry about the reaction move mistake.

And I might have a mistake on my map - or you made a mistake. The stacking limit in Hill is 5, but in hex 1010 I have:

(1-7) Col ART
1-5 Col ART
3-5 Col INF
3-5 Col INF

That's 6 Stacking points (unless the Arty doesn't count or something).

Did I get that wrong?

Now to Exploitation
- I'll move both MOT INF in 1503 > 1705
- I think that releases the garrison dudes
- I'll place my Allied Natives chit on the fella in 1704 to convert him
- I think you need to roll for the other fella, correct?

Lastly, I'll draw one more chit for me:
- Exploit

I think it's over to you...

don't forget that we're using a single cup with all the chits in there, and also that the chits we just played don't get put back into the chit cup until after the new chits are pulled

8 10/1/2017 6:52:00 PM Turn 1 Simon- Italians Message btw, as you'll be moving into Eritrea, my Eritrean Native 1-6 in 0308 gets released at the end of the allied move phase, and will be available to move in my enemy reaction phase (note that this unit is not a garrison, see 6.0 2nd para)

Italian chits
- Withdrawal
- Exploit
- Italian natives
- Roadblock

...and now I'm going to piss you off by playing Roadblock at the start of your move in 0508 - obviously, you'll want to re-do your move.
I immediately get to draw a new chit from the mixed-chit cup (could you do the honors). The Roadblock chit is put into the mixed-chit cup at the end of the move phase.
