171 11/16/2017 1:08:00 AM Turn 7 Axis Message Whoops - I missed all that SATL stuff and just noticed it. Sorry about that.

Well, the miracle ends and thus the game. I enjoyed it and nice meeting you. Best of luck the rest of the way.

152 11/13/2017 9:45:00 PM Turn 7 Axis Message Yeah, I do need to make it to the WBC. It sounds like a blast.
151 11/13/2017 9:45:00 PM Turn 7 Axis Message Turn 8:

Everything has to go my way to get a tie with the bid. Very slim chances but all I've got.

Barents Sea: Tirpitz, Bismarck, Prinz Eugen and Gneisenau

South Atlantic: 5 x U-Boats - Gorizia, Pola, Fiume
150 11/13/2017 11:52:00 AM Turn 7 Allies Message Turn 8:
Barents: Ark Royal, 117 x4, Anson, KGV -5, Howe -2
North Atlantic: Illustrious, USA x6
North Sea; 016 x2, 443 x4, Rodney -1
South Atlantic: Formidable, Eagle, 444 x3, Duke of York
149 11/13/2017 7:18:00 AM Turn 7 Allies Message No reinforcements this time. I can't complain ... anytime the Allies get all three convoys past the LBA they've been fortunate.

This was anybody's game going into Turn 7 and when I failed the Speed Roll I thought I was toast - but then I got the great airstrike followed by terrific dice in the battle for a far more lop-sided result than I deserved. WAS is like that - you got the 3 for 3 airstrike on Turn 3 that devastated my Barents fleet so this was a game where the airstrikes made all the difference. And in WAS anything can happen so I won't light up my cigar yet.

8 VIP players these days is not bad I'm afraid. You should really try to get to WBC one of these days while the wargames are still drawing good fields.
