Halt rolls
129 12/23/2017 12:34:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message ok... I'll get things set up again a bit later... do you want to roll for the initial Halt markers? You could do that here, I'll just use the roll...

As you can see, if anything, this one is fairly balanced, it might even favor the Allies... I was driving as hard as I could to trap those stronger British units, but you did a good job of keeping a route open for them...

Will not even bother with the rest as that is game, I have a stack of about 11 units in Dunkirk, most of which will have to die. Do you want to play this again? If so I would like another go at the allies and this time I will pay more attention to the supply rules.

additional attrition rolls

3020 (+2)
3424 (+1)
3224 (+1)
96 12/22/2017 3:33:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message looking at those French OOS attrition rolls...

I think only the units in or adjacent to Lille get the +2, they are the only ones that can trace to a city... the other ones you have marked as +2 are +1, as they can only trace to a town...

I think the only one that changes is 3223 would be reduced...

also, you roll for each unit in hex... so, there are units in 3020 and 3424 that weren't rolled for...

and, there was a roll for 3025, but that one was eliminated, and there is a unit in 3224 that was not rolled for...

do you want to do those 3 additional rolls?
95 12/22/2017 3:18:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Dunkirk is brilliant, see it on the biggest screen you can...

72 12/22/2017 12:16:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message I think your unit in 3023 is the only one that won't have a +2 or +1...
71 12/22/2017 12:14:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message DRM... I got lucky!

you are going to have a number of attrition rolls to do with your OOS French units (see 18.5.3)

note, though, that you get a +2 if you can trace to a city hex, +1 if to a town...

most of your units can get to a city or town hex... the northern ones to Lille, and some of the others are on or next to a town...

so, even though it is common for the French to get trapped back there, if they are in city hexes they can still survive those attrition rolls fairly easily, and can last for awhile, and the Germans still have to dig them out if they want to free up those units to move to the coast

I thought it maybe wasn't the wisest move to expose a unit there, but I was hoping it might keep you to evacuating only 1 unit from Dunkirk this turn... oh well, the sacrifice was in vain :(

Message from Allies:
Evacuation roll for Dunkirk
67 12/22/2017 11:13:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message it is also -1 VP for each British unit lost, so you want to take care to not lose those if possible...

my armor stacks start disappearing on Turn 6, and that eases the pressure...

the Allies want to get back to a perimter behind those rivers, pack Dunkirk with high defense units, and preferrably Monty, and hang on there with determined defense rolls (Monty and a plane make it all but a sure thing) and try to hang on till the armor disappers, all the while evacuating what they can..
66 12/22/2017 11:10:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message advances done... it is getting tough for you, but I don't think it is yet a guaranteed German win...

The Allies have to get to 15 VP, and you have 6 with the German casualties... you also start rolling now for evac... though on Turn 4 it is just for Dunkirk, and since I am now next to it, you roll twice and take the lower number...

so, you would need some luck with the evac rolls, and you need to set up a perimeter behind the Yser river, or the Canal de la Basse Colme, where your defense is doubled and my armor doesn't count

the French units back in the OOS supply aren't necessarily critical... it's not uncommon for a pocket to get caught back there, but the Germans then have to use units to keep them penned in, and can't send them to the coast...

so, we can stop if you want... or, if you want to go another turn and see how it goes, we can do that too...
65 12/22/2017 10:48:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message File posted, not entirely sure it is worth carrying on with but you would have a better idea than I.
