252 2/19/2018 5:56:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message Might I assume you are at Prezcon this week?
251 2/18/2018 11:44:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message Actually please send me all GE dispositions.
250 2/18/2018 11:44:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message I looked through the log - my map may be screwed up. Please send me your GE dispositions in the SU.
249 2/18/2018 11:43:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message I have GE4A and GE9A in Moscow.

Based on my limited exposure, I think 8 card hands would hurt this game. It makes the card-reducers less potent (they seem to be a balancing element), and CCs should be painful in their decision to use. Also, you do see more 1-OPs in this anyway, no?

248 2/18/2018 11:34:00 AM Summer 1942 Allied Message I show GE16A in Moscow, care to adjust?

Yeah, I'm enjoying getting back into this game. I'm thinking the next tourney should favor 8 card hands, could reduce some of the whacky luck associated with card draws. =)
247 2/18/2018 11:27:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message BTW, mission accomplished - I like this game. I may not like it more than POG (at least at this time), and I know it's not for everyone - but I am enjoying it!

Yes, I am pretty sure these aren't the best places for the precious German trenches. Let's see what I learn.
154 2/14/2018 7:37:00 PM Winter 1942 Allied Message Yes, you can play hedgehogs as the event. The spaces are in full supply, the winter rule is that the German UNITS are in limited supply. Yes, it's a bit odd. Another oddity is that the minor Allies in Russia would NOT be subjected to the winter conditions.
153 2/14/2018 6:30:00 PM Winter 1942 Axis Message Let me know if I can use it on this turn. If I can, then I will revise my play.
