217 5/4/2018 4:32:00 AM Summer 1942 Allied Message You are right. I just read the rule around retreats. I'll retreat SU_VOL and SUa to Moscow instead.

Presumably you still attack in Ryazan. I'll roll for losses.
216 5/3/2018 6:38:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message That's fine. Note that retreating units don't add their combat power to the combat.
215 5/3/2018 2:50:00 AM Summer 1942 Allied Message I am sorry Max. Because we are playing one move each day, I didn't realise that you had played a card for an event. Can I change my retreats from earlier?

I would rather that the SU_VOL goes to Ryazan and the SUa retreats to Moscow.

Are you happy with this? Not sure whether this changes your move or not.

Therefore flip BRY as you said.

But you need to take an additional step loss to hold in Valdai with the GEc, or you can retreat 1 space.
