55 2/5/2018 7:30:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message You're actually better off this game than you were the last, if that's any consolation. The Leningrad move, IMHO, was a problem for you - you basically gave up the city which "freed up a VP" which I used to get my tanks loose in the south.

I'll get Game IV set up shortly - I so do want you to enjoy this game!
54 2/5/2018 7:23:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message So, Tom - I am not so sure this game is for me. That said, I want it to be. I love the theme, and the system.

Maybe it is best that you teach me from the other side. I will repeat that learning on ACTS is a handicap for me here. There are so many spaces and my Russian geography isn't THAT great. This game has a much more operational feel than POG.

So as not to lead you to boredom, let's just do that now (switch sides). You can set it up and play your typical opening as my first play, so I can see how you deal with it. Then we can take it from there.

39 2/4/2018 10:15:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Nothing really hampers you severely, although it is a minor nuisance - we will go with SF markers on Lublin, Yassi, and Galatz.
38 2/4/2018 7:06:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message If it ends its move in the space, yes. Otherwise you can just move through.
37 2/3/2018 11:22:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Question before the adjustment.

If a separate unit enters the space with the SF marker, is it subject to the same restrictions after?
36 2/3/2018 8:45:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message You might need to adjust your orders - per 8.4, they have to go on Axis units adjacent to a supplied Allied unit.
