388 4/26/2018 1:53:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message I mean file with Luanda unit moved has been posted.
387 4/26/2018 1:53:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message You are right on Luanda. Ou! Thanks.

With regards to the column marker, what I see in the pdf with rules is this:

"A maximum of one Unit may be placed in any town
or city where the recruiting Faction possesses a face up Control Marker. Newly deployed troops may be deployed directly to a Column."

So I understand that no column marker is really nedeed, only Control Marker... If you feel that is not right, I will fix that too.

Meanwhile, my most humble apologies and file with Luanda unit moved. Thanks!

386 4/25/2018 11:09:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Sorry, Javi, for variable recruitment a unit has to be placed where there is a column marker, so it can't go to Henrique de Carvalho. Also no variable recruitment can go to Luanda, as you have done.
385 4/25/2018 6:49:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Done! Over to Jason
384 4/25/2018 6:37:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Die roll request Request: 4-sided die x 1

380 4/22/2018 3:53:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Moved column C forward. Back to Brian for clean up.
379 4/22/2018 8:16:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message Played another 5th column to reinforce my stack in case of Jason's column D attack.

Over to Jason
378 4/21/2018 8:39:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Picked off a FAPLA infantry via automatic victory

Javi up
377 4/21/2018 1:39:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message 5th column reinforces Lobito.

376 4/19/2018 7:50:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Real exciting moves by everyone :/
I played a command card. To Brian.
375 4/19/2018 4:36:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Column C stay put. Over to Jason.
374 4/18/2018 4:34:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Javi up
373 4/17/2018 5:57:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message Bob is up.
372 4/16/2018 7:43:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I have retreated and clarified a point about supporting region. Also removed Javi's column marker because of straggling rule. Then I played a blank card for my turn. To Brian.
371 4/16/2018 8:50:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message Jason, I've uploaded the file. The result was 1:1, so the combat continues. I choose to sacrifice one of my units (a 1 infantry) to continue combat. You now need to do the same (which I think you will not do, because you will lose the brigade and the combat) or retreat - and if retreat, where :)

After that, you can award me the VPs (from your pool, I think, not returning me tokens already used) and the city, please (I forget :(), and do your turn :)

368 4/16/2018 7:29:00 AM Turn 1 UNITA Message Yes I do
367 4/16/2018 1:50:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message No problem. My stack is a brigade, a infantry unit and a armored card. Do you want to fire the anti-missile and spend it?
366 4/15/2018 6:47:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I have revealed my units. I'm kind of busy, so please resolve the combat.
365 4/15/2018 4:36:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Column B moves again and attacks column A from Jason. As I think that we do not have more airgroups, I've revealed my units. I also have a +1 because of Column C.

Jason, can you reveal the units, please? And if you want so, please feel free to resolve the entire combat and take your turn :)

Thanks!
364 4/15/2018 2:35:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Forgot to check for automatic victory - which it was

356 4/13/2018 2:18:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I agree, bob. I made some fixes and then played a blank card.

Back to Brian, forever first player.
355 4/13/2018 6:13:00 AM Turn 1 FNLA Message That's the great thing about this game. You take your lumps for a turn and then your allies give you all sorts of goodies to keep you in the fight.
354 4/13/2018 1:44:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message Congrats to Bob and Jason for wiping me out. Brian, I am sorry, this turn is going to be a disaster for me :(

My terrible vengeance is... to play my blank card

On to Jason.
353 4/12/2018 8:06:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Did some cleanup of one of Javi's guys in the North.

351 4/12/2018 8:03:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Jason I think you get 2 victory tokens for taking a city.

350 4/12/2018 7:41:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message Column A takes up defensive positions. Javi, you have a number of columns that are no longer hidden. You might want to check all of them.

Bob is up.

344 4/12/2018 5:23:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message I commit my airgroup :) File uploaded
343 4/11/2018 7:46:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Attacking Javi in Benguela. Javi, do you commit airgroup? I committed mine.
342 4/11/2018 4:58:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Over to Jason.

I did 5th column and moved a unit.

Bob, I suggest you to wait a few more turns before conquering Cabinda. I suggest that you send columns E and C to Cabinda too, to ensure the conquest

(I wish!)
341 4/11/2018 4:24:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Due to ineffective use of his resources, The commander of Column D fails to conquer Cabinda but does destroy 2/3rds of the remaining defenders.

Message from MPLA:
Of course, sorry. I was in mindless mode. Here's the roll for first player :)
331 4/8/2018 7:58:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Why is it over to me? Can you roll for first player?
330 4/8/2018 7:13:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Done. Over to Jason.

I feel like I am a lot dumber, if that's possible, since sleep deprived by my second son :)
329 4/8/2018 6:50:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Done

Javi up
328 4/8/2018 5:57:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message Done.

Bob is up.
327 4/8/2018 4:41:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I had bid 2 and got some AT Missiles out of the deal. (Our side bid the highest of course). Somehow I always end up having to do end of turn clean up. Then I made my pack--6 cards in the pack, now.

On to Brian to make his pack.
326 4/8/2018 6:20:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message Over to Jason.

I got 2 AAs and a congratulation telegram from Beijin.
325 4/7/2018 8:35:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message FNLA done
Javi up
324 4/7/2018 6:01:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message Sorry for the delay. Weather problems delayed my return, and then I had to dig my way out of work related stuff.

I did my bid and collected my covert loot.

Bob is up.
323 4/7/2018 12:25:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Done. Over to Brian.
322 4/7/2018 12:20:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Sorry, missed this with the new baby. I'll do it ina few minutes.
321 4/5/2018 7:56:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Did mine. Still have Javi and Brian to do theirs.
320 4/4/2018 11:56:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I now have made my secret bid for covert aid
319 4/4/2018 4:34:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message Shall you start, Bob, with the secret bid?
318 4/3/2018 7:28:00 AM Turn 1 UNITA Message We probably should
317 4/3/2018 6:48:00 AM Turn 1 FNLA Message Do we want to go ahead and do our secret covert aid bids while we wait?
316 4/2/2018 9:17:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Thanks for fixing, both of you.
Sorry, Javi, I wasn't understanding what you were doing, but now I do.
I did my set recruitment and variable. On to Brian.
315 4/2/2018 6:26:00 AM Turn 1 FNLA Message fixed mine
file uploaded
back to Jason
314 4/2/2018 2:08:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message BTW, I forgot to say. The file is now uploaded :)
313 4/2/2018 2:08:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message Thanks Jason! The variable recruitment I forgot - blame the "just came back from the hospital" thing. Unfortuantely, even if I should get 5 infantries because of variable recruitment, I've run out of counters and I can place only one :P

With regards to Cabinda, I'm putting the unit there that Brian recruited (as part of point 1 of FAPLA set recruitment). Unfortunately, VASSAL does not allow him to put my unit there, so he asked me to do so in the ACTS message.

Thanks again!
312 4/1/2018 11:36:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Javi, in doing your set recruitment you put 1 in Cabinda but you meet neither of the requirements--you don't control Luanda, so skip the 1.2.3. under that section. Then for part two, you do control Cabinda, but Luanda IS controlled by your MPLA/FAPLA alliance, so you don't meet that requirement either. I don't believe you get 1 in Cabinda. Also, are you not doing variable recruitment?

311 4/1/2018 11:33:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I'm having a bit of trouble with these recruitments. Bob, you did your variable recruitment into Carmona, which is not face up for you since you just took it. You have to put your variable recruitment to a town that is face up.
310 3/30/2018 7:00:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Congrats, Javi! They always show up when you least expect it.
I don't have to take my turn right now because Brian is on vacation anyway.
309 3/30/2018 5:26:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Thanks a ton! We are well but sleep deprived :)

Jason is up :)
308 3/30/2018 4:08:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Congratulations!!
307 3/30/2018 4:04:00 PM Turn 1 MPLA Message Hi!

Sorry, my second son was born on Tuesday - we were expecting him by mid-april. I'll move soon! My apologies
306 3/27/2018 7:34:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Javi up
305 3/27/2018 6:20:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message I did my recruitment phase.

I am going to be travelling from March 28 through April 3, so this will be my last log file until I get back.

Javi, I recruited 1 unit to Cabinda, so that will be for you to take care of on your next move.

Bob is up next.
304 3/26/2018 7:17:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Done. Over to Brian to start recruitments
303 3/25/2018 10:16:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I got my direct foreign aid. Over to Bob to receive some.

299 3/25/2018 4:48:00 PM Turn 1 FNLA Message Javi up
298 3/25/2018 4:19:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message Reorg done.

Bob is up.
297 3/25/2018 2:42:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message Even though Bob did not take one of Brian's victory tokens, the results would be the same as what was in the log I posted. It would be 11 tokens vs 9 tokens.
296 3/25/2018 2:40:00 PM Turn 1 UNITA Message I agree with Brian's assessment. For my last card play I played a blank. Then I counted up the tokens for each side and moved the marker. Then I reorganzied. Over to Brian for reorganization.
295 3/25/2018 1:26:00 PM Turn 1 FAPLA Message Bob captured Gabela, and then I recaptured it, so that one was a wash. But Bob also captured the town where Javi and I both had units (Carmona?). So Bob should have one of my victory tokens for that one.

Jason destroyed one of my columns that was just outside of a town he captured last turn, so I don't think there were any victory tokens involved on that one.
294 3/25/2018 11:36:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message Over to Jason after Novo Redondo is conquered. Brian, Bob, Jason, are your Victory Tokens right? I do not see any of you with a Victory Token from the other one, and some towns have changed hands this turn....
293 3/25/2018 11:32:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message 6+2 = 8 -3 = +5 factor, up two levels. So we transform a 2:1 to a 4:1, so half defenders are destroyed - so two units destroyed and Novo Redondo is conquered.

Message from MPLA:
Becase of terrain, I roll 2 dices (+2), because of terrain, UNITA rolls 1 dice. Plus 1 dice for city. Plus 1 dice for minefield - for a grand total of 3.

First two dices are attacker, next three dices are defender.
291 3/25/2018 11:28:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message No unit eliminated. So we go directly to combat resolution. My basic force is 7, against 3 defeners, so it's 2:1 in favor of attacker. I have a +2 in dice roll modification: +1 tank, +1 armored car.

Message from MPLA:
Two rolls, in case of 1 I can eliminate an armored unit of my choosing.
289 3/25/2018 11:26:00 AM Turn 1 MPLA Message For my last turn, I attack Novo Redondo (UNITA) with Column C.

I do not commit airgroups, so I think it goes straight to minefield roll.
