980 5/28/2018 10:21:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Thanks, Nick. I thought you had me until your AP4. Great game - your Russian defense was quite impressive.

You'll of course move on to round 6 and we're trying to avoid repeat matches before the finals so it would be very cool for us to match up against each other again. ;)
979 5/28/2018 10:11:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #33: 2 / Grand Fleet
If played in the Allied Action Round immediately following the "High Seas Fleet," cancel that card. Cannot be played as an event at any other time.

Message from Allies:
well, ct takes sedan, and ru 10 takes the moral MO of attritioning 2 ah armies at kp.

good game = could have gone either way. Hopefully for me you will take a loss before I meet you again in the tournament, wouldn't want to have to beat you two in a row :)

Incidentally, this is the first loss I have taken since 2011, and only the second since 2007. Your effective play puts you in good company.




978 5/28/2018 9:54:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message No rush, I spent no small amount of time trying to make sure nothing would pop out.
977 5/28/2018 9:45:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Play Strategy card as Combat #7: 2 / Severe Weather

Message from Allies:

976 5/28/2018 8:38:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #55: 4 / Lloyd George
May not be played after MICHEL, BLUCHER, or PEACE OFFENSIVE. No BR attacks vs. Level 2 entrenched GE units may be made for the rest of this turn. The effect of this card is canceled by play of MICHEL, BLUCHER, or PEACE OFFENSIVE events. This event may mean that a BR MO cannot be fulfilled in a specific turn.
