751 4/8/2018 12:59:00 PM Spring 1945 Axis Message Of course, Ltd Supply in the west with no Sheldt event. I was in such a meltdown by that time, I never even noticed that. Makes the Allied win even more decisive.
750 4/8/2018 11:50:00 AM Spring 1945 Allied Message Hi George,

Yeah, that breakout in the west was fortuitous, it certainly wasn't planned as my original intention was to go straight north. Just to make sure you know, I was NOT in full supply in the west, I was in limited supply. (I never played "Clearing the Scheldt" nor can I trace full supply to Naples from outside Italy.)

You were ably defending but I think losing 5+ VP for Winter VP checks is fatal in the long run.

This game has a very different 'emotional feel' than POG - I'd even call it brutal at times. I do enjoy this game so I'd be happy to play again, sides reversed. I'll set up the game on ACTs and get an opening out today.

Regards,
Tom
749 4/8/2018 11:13:00 AM Spring 1945 Axis Message Hi Tom,

I think it's time to concede. Well played. Your Patton move to capture Antwerp turned the game and like all good moves, I didn't see it coming. Will remember to always leave a unit on Antwerp in future. After that, I had no answer to the inevitable degradation of the GE forces. Being in full supply in the West meant I had to swing forces from the East. Up to to fall of Antwerp I thought I had a fair position and the game would go to the wire, but Patton changed it all.

If you have the time, do you want another game; sides reversed?
