85 11/16/2017 9:19:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Michael: Although artillery is never doubled on defense, you do get a shift for defending in a town across a river. Therefore, it's a 4-1 attack. 3-1=2 for a D4. I will need the retreat location of your 174 art before I can make an advance after combat. In the meantime, I will send remainder of my attacks in a few moments.

Well done and well played.
81 11/16/2017 8:13:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message your adjacent vs various attacks is confusing as they are adjacent to two units being attacked?

71 11/15/2017 7:24:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Hi, Michael: Back home and settling in. Big change between the 82 of Florida and the 32 up here in NH. Kind uv curious as to why you are waiting until the end of your GT to conduct surrender die rolls? In any event, I need your bridge blowing dice and surrender rolls before I make my move. Thanks.
70 11/14/2017 8:34:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message Not much of a defense
69 11/14/2017 8:32:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message yes and I have 3 Bridges to blow.
68 11/14/2017 6:10:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Hi, Michael: Still down here in Florida. Wedding was nice. Fly out later today. Will get to your move ASAP. As I recall, you had two surrender die rolls to make prior to making your move.
67 11/13/2017 9:12:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Looked at several options, none of them could hold the line, just can not get anyone to the center, will explore one more option
66 11/9/2017 10:22:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Sorry got behind and had to catch up in two FTP simultaneous tourney games, this is tough position took a look at it and need to get I right. It will be waiting upon your return Tuesday.
65 11/9/2017 8:41:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Hi, Michael: As of this date, I have not received your 17AM move. Wife and I leave for Florida tomorrow to attend our nephew's wedding. We return Tuesday evening. I don't anticipate accessing email during that period. I do hope to hear from you upon our return. Have a good weekend and happy veterans' day.
64 11/7/2017 11:13:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message Ours were spectacular this year.
63 11/7/2017 10:43:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Due to unusually long and warm summer, our colors were not as vibrant up here as they usually are. 'Hope you had an enjoyable trip.
62 11/7/2017 10:40:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message took a short 3 day trip to look at the leaves , back in town.
61 11/1/2017 8:39:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message The last comment was misplaced it was a Allied requirement.
60 11/1/2017 8:38:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message Face to face your stats or even more even as the pressure of time hurts the Allies more than the Germans.

As the allies you have to:
Block all avenues.
Look at his movement possibilities and position accordingly.
At the best location.
Check for advances
Check odds.
Look at Angrief possibilities.
Look at where you need to be next turn.
Position Artillery in best locations.

Germans:
Spot the weakness.
Have a second line to block advances and reserve units.
59 11/1/2017 8:23:00 AM Turn 1 German Message In the vast majority of games I play, I find it much easier to play the attacker. I can look at the board and pretty much know right away the avenue I want to take. As the defender, all bases must be considered and covered. Takes me more time to play the defense. I don't mind doing so, as I like to see an opponent fall on his sword.
58 11/1/2017 8:20:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message I agree with your odds. The Allies have a steep learning curve. They tend to place units way too forward and in dangerous locations lose a unit or two needlessly and you are in trouble as the Allies. They also do not consider where they need units next turn or where to place Armor units so the movement potential after the combat. Often trapping them in forrest or with only two hexes of movement. all cost them games. a lot to consider as the Allies not so much for the Germans.
57 11/1/2017 8:13:00 AM Turn 1 German Message What is your take on the play balance of the 8 turn scenario? I give the Yanks 55/45 (same as AK); while the 6 turn scenario I give them a 60/40. Disappointing to see a newbie read this and ask to play the defense, get trounced the first time out, and claim the game to be imbalanced.

48 10/29/2017 3:57:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message OK honest Die Rolls are easy?
47 10/29/2017 1:54:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I misplayed my Skorzeny sneak. I will try and make up for it. We shall see.
46 10/29/2017 1:54:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Those are terrific results. However, Gregorio insists that Germans can't win the 6 turn scenario vs a competent Yank Player. Frankly, I'm tired of his jibing. I will be surprised if he participates at Prezcon in February, as he considers aspects of the tournament design to be "cheating."
45 10/29/2017 9:48:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message It is always possible to defeat anyone if you have the right die rolls. I once lost to a person who was playing their 3rd game simply because they got great die rolls on turn one and two I had nothing left, I still remember the unbelievable results.
ENG vs 4/12
ENG vs 28/109
Surprise and 1D1 vs 28/110

D3 vs 14Cav trapping 99/394
D2 vs 99/393
D1 killing 99/394
FF vs 99/395
and their only "bad roll CA vs the trapped 106/424 where he died on the CA.

Down tw0 units with two units in the south engaged plus two flipped guys and 106/423 blocked.

Their second turn was similar.

Skorzeny Sneak.

41 10/26/2017 3:46:00 PM Turn 1 German Message This kind of good fortune in the early turns is needed to defeat someone of your expertise. Of course, Gregorio claims it is not possible to defeat him when he is the defender in this scenario.
I will have my advances to you later this evening, as I am off to work a soup kitchen for the homeless.
40 10/26/2017 2:38:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message I guess I should take heart that it could have been much worse! Not really anything I could do to prevent the opportunities. Losing 2 Units and getting 3 guys flipped was bad enough.
