294 8/12/2018 9:06:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Hi Rune,
Are you back from your travels?
I changed my last action - I canceled the invasion and made a conservative/defensive move in Russia instead.
So it is your next Action #5, I believe.

Note: If Allies capture Tunis before Axis, it becomes a -1. So you might want to SR a unit there this round to prevent that - since you are so close to the 11 points you need to play Totalier Krieg card.

287 7/7/2018 4:29:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message Yep, failed to spot it..

This is going really well.

286 7/7/2018 4:25:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message You seem to be in a Rush so I will point out that you have left your Panzers without a supply line... I can Move units into Voroshilovgrad and Rostov = No retreat routes. Then if you retreat the units are eliminated with a 3-Season/Turn delay.

You may have noticed that I tend to save my best cards for the end of the turn. I suggest you consider a more conservative Advance - or at least one that has a higher payoff if it works.
285 7/7/2018 3:14:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message I am going to Croatia for a forthnight tomorrow. So my next move might take som time. It might be doable on the holiday, but cannot promise anything.

Change card to Von Palus Pause and Map remains as it is. Second attack never happened.

Sorry, I disappeared - computer problems (lost my power cable) and it was 0200 hour here - so I slept.
I have a new power cable now - all good!
268 7/5/2018 5:00:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message I agree with your interpretation, makes more sense. Think I agreed to this once prior. It would make Guderian and Patton a bit OP.

In regards to undo.. Hate to undo already rolled dice.. I bit to much help.. Maybe undo the last one. As you can see I have another "4" card. maybe use that instead? Same move, but no Guderian. WOuld that make sense.. ? I know it changes a dice roel aswell.
267 7/5/2018 4:44:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message Your prior attack plan against Elets made more sense.

Would you want to change your attack given that Guderian is not a Nuclear Bomb?
I can see players wanting to make this work, but 11.45 was not written with Guderian and Patton in mind - it is intended to force players to retreat away from impending battles -

If you want to redo your card play you can.
266 7/5/2018 4:29:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message We both got 2 Loss which is no effect & no retreat.

Do you agree that 2nd combat is separate from rule about retreating into a space that is subsequently attacked by another stack that was already designated with a combat marker?

With Guderian (& Patton) a whole new combat is allowed to happen AFTER all other combats have been resolved.

Looking at rule 11.45 - I see how folks can interpret this as later in the same combat round... Did Ted Racier answer this?
My take is that the 2nd combat is intended to be seperate from prior attacks not an Nuclear Bomb.
Otherwise you could use this to Automatically take any space - even if unit's canceled a retreat, this would allow total destruction of multiple units.
Ted wanted players to not retreat into impending battles trying to improve the odds or have the same unit fire twice on defense - that is what the rule is intended to fix.
265 7/5/2018 4:23:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message PzA 4 is flipped, yes

And 2 hits.. damn, not the best way for Guderian.

Okay, no problem. Just read on Boardgamegeek. It was in regards to the Same unit, Voronezh, being in combat the same round, thus make it not effective. But no problem. no hits..

263 7/5/2018 4:15:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message Guderian (and Patton) perform a "2nd Attack" that happens after all "1st attacks" - thus attacking the same unit a second time is not "Automatic" elimination.

Unless the designer says otherwise - do you have that posted somewhere?
262 7/5/2018 4:10:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message I have never heard debate.
Guderian attacks regular - What is automatic against an LCU?
And did you reduce 4th Panzer - 3 loss?
261 7/5/2018 4:08:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message Yes and yes.

Sry. About the lack of (). GE2 and GE17 is both (GE2) and (GE17)

PzA 4 stays.

2. Assult -> PzA 2 -> Melitopol. Auto? Or how does this funcktion? I know there has been some debate about it. Does it make sense if Guderian is not Auto?

245 7/1/2018 10:55:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Hi Rune,
How was Moscow?
Did you see my notes about Spring Thaw? You will need to play a different card or 1 OPS - Your current card Can Not be played during Spring Thaw.
Mark
244 6/25/2018 12:27:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Hi Rune,
Several Notes here...
1) Regarding eliminated units - Your two Armies were eliminated "In Supply" so they go in the eliminated units box and can be replaced instead of flipping up the (LCU) units on the map - your choice.

If any LCU is eliminated with no SCU in Reserve -> then the LCU is removed from the game - something to avoid. Only when GE, US, or BR LCUs are eliminated while "Out Of Supply" are they placed on the Turn track 3x turns - Soviet LCU are exempt from this.

It is SPRING Thaw and if you look at your card it says: "May not be played during Spring Thaw." Sorry, you can play a 1-OPS or other event. Reinforcements or Replacements are also good to play during thaws.

And I would have guessed you to attack Kharkov instead! LOL!

Let me know if you want to change your Replacements to bring the eliminated LCUs back into Warsaw so you can march them back to the front - That is the real reason I worked hard to eliminate units last turn!

209 6/19/2018 4:33:00 PM Winter 1942 Allied Message Do you have time to roll my two attacks today? I'd like to resolve combats so you can plan your next move...
208 6/18/2018 3:19:00 PM Winter 1942 Allied Message And the SCU in Valdai is NOT in the attack. ;)
207 6/18/2018 3:17:00 PM Winter 1942 Allied Message Oops - ignore the hint... I had planned to attack from Leningrad, but that will have to wait.

Message from Allied:
Okay - a breather. I will get my event out of the way...
202 6/18/2018 6:14:00 AM Winter 1942 Axis Message No, not need, can't both capture Sevastopol and save the army.

True, no capturing Stalino..


There will be no war in Libya this winter..
201 6/18/2018 6:04:00 AM Winter 1942 Allied Message 1) Are you not going to capture Sevastopol?
2) You can't move through Stalino - there are two LCU's there.
From my last move:
M Voroshilovgrad = Northwest LCU + Caucasus LCU -> Stalino (Capture Millerovo) (Kamenskaya remains Axis)

Otherwise, looks good.
Do you want to change anything?

199 6/18/2018 5:25:00 AM Winter 1942 Allied Message No Retreat = No Advance. My 3x units remain in Dnepr...

198 6/18/2018 5:23:00 AM Winter 1942 Axis Message Ok, get the point you are making.

I will not deny the fact that i might "hand in the towel", if I lost the 4 GE armies.. But I would demand a rematch :-)

I always fail to take Kharkov, often to my own surprise.

Sounds like good advice. I was not aware that the RO wasn't affected by the Winter. But I will do that, flip SCU, adn leave it.

Where will it put your units then?
197 6/18/2018 5:16:00 AM Winter 1942 Axis Message Hi Mark

I am above again.. A little. :-)

Sry for the delay. I will look into the position and get back to you.. From what I have seen it does not bode well.
