378 9/11/2018 4:13:00 PM Fall 1942 Allied Message Hi Rune,

Okay. I am curious what is happening?
Is your life busy right now?
Or are you bored with our game?

Basically, I'm finding out if you want to play a different game or if you need a break from gaming?
Let me know if you are interested in trying a different game.

377 9/11/2018 7:20:00 AM Fall 1942 Axis Message Hi Mark

I think I need to "throw the towel"... So to speak.

I don't look like winning :-) , but more important, i don't think i have the time. It stresses me more to try and find time to make a move than a fun game should..

Thank you for actually showing patience with me both in-game and out game in time of time spend "not taking my time".



376 9/10/2018 1:04:00 PM Fall 1942 Allied Message Not as an event card.

Did you mean to play for Replacement points??

Note: You are at risk for losing GE INF Armies if I attack 3+ of the reduced LCUs.
ALso, you need 11+ VP to play Totalier Krieg And you need Hitler Takes Command before that...

Last turn really messed up Allied Plans because I didn't play Lend Lease event and the stuff with Desert Army - still seems like a rules problem to me.
You kept playing OPS cards and I followed suit...
375 9/10/2018 8:22:00 AM Fall 1942 Axis Play Strategy card as Event #8: 2 / Hitler Declares War
Add 1 VP. US Enters the war. Allow play of Allied US Build-Up card. PREREQ: May play after Summer 41.

Message from Axis:
374 9/10/2018 2:32:00 AM Fall 1942 Allied Message Reply from my cell phone earlier failed -

No - You can not play PzAA Reinforcement card as an event unless you can place PzAA in Tripoli - which you can not do.
Under Rule 7.62 in Italics:
NOTE: A player may not play a Reinforcement card for a nation which can not legally place all of the reinforcements on the map.

Additional Note:
I am not sure that I can skip playing the Desert & 8th Army Reinforcement cards... see notes in same section or rules.
AND I do not see how the US 7th Army is supposed to enter the game - there are two Invasion cards that list the 7th but No other reinforcement card - so there is no way for it to be IN The Reserve Box which is a requirement for the US 7th and Br 8th to "participate" in an Invasion?!!
373 9/9/2018 3:02:00 PM Fall 1942 Axis Message Can i Play PzAA even though Tripoli is lost?

367 9/4/2018 1:25:00 PM Fall 1942 Allied Message So I did not see an option to select a card from Blitz deck. I was going to select the Lend Lease Card - Of Course. I wish I had just held it from last turn.

So, I will play "Husky" card this turn as if it was the Lend Lease Card and later when Lend Lease card is Drawn we will treat it as Husky Invasion card... Does that work for you?

* I am surprised you played that Reinforcement card and not PzAA. My opinion is PzAA would have held control of N. Africa and additional 2+ turns and forced me to play Desert & 8th Army cards.

My other Opinion - Replacements would have been worth more than the HU and IT armies...

I am in doubt. As I read them i agree with you, they will not be able to enter without being in the RB. But it doesn't make sense.. I would argue that a possible invasion would be able to bring them in. So lets go with that.

And in regards to PzAA.. Yep even though my northern flank, in Russia, and my logistics in Africa is threatened my Panzer marches on! he he

339 8/31/2018 10:28:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message Question- on page 7 of rules:
The U.S. 7th Army and the British 8th Army may be involved
in invasions after they have already entered the game.
To take part in an invasion they must currently be in the Allied
Reserve Box (this is an exception to the rule that LCUs
are never placed in the Reserve Box).

According to this, the US 7th is Not able to invade and it has no other means of entering the game??!

On the flip side, if the 7th can invade without being in the Reserve Box first - the question is: Can the BR 8th enter the game the same way??!

I am looking at having no NEED to bring in the Desert and 8th Armies in N. Africa.
So, can I wait and just play Husky Invasion which will bring the [US 7th] and [Br 8th] in by invasion??

I hate when the rules leave questions like this...
And PzAA not coming into the game is both very logical and a pain in the butt - it was supposed to be a pain in the butt for Axis and cost a bunch of Panzer step loses - instead you have huge panzer reserves.

Sry for the late reply.
316 8/23/2018 1:20:00 AM Summer 1942 Allied Message Hi Rune,
I offer you 3 reasons to make a different move:

1- I am happy to take the Victory Point if you don't want it - for Capturing Tunis... If you capture it first and then Allies capture it - you stay at 12 VP. If Allies Capture it - you drop to 11 VP.

2- You know that I have drawn all but 1 of my cards - so there is a 1 in 8 chance that I do not have Desert Army Reinforcement card. I have it. And you would need PzAA to capture El Alamein.

3- You will need replacements and 2 strength cards are you most efficient use.

QUESTION: Do you know if Siberians count as the 1x Soviet Reinforcements card per turn? Or can I play that card and card #4 in the same turn?

My only problem this turn is having Both British Reinforcement cards!

Please Confirm if you Insist on making this your move for Round #1. Otherwise, submit another turn - Like an SR into Tunis would be very smart - also a good use for a 2 card.

No change in regards to my move.

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.
Mark
293 7/24/2018 3:12:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message Letting you know I will be off line for most of the next two weeks. See my prior entries - it is your action.

Message from Allied:
Rune,
Have a great trip! Here is my turn for when you have a chance. Look at prior entries - I canceled my Invasion card - Russian lines like swiss cheese! Must fix!

Allied Action 4: 5 / Ops

And SW Inf -> Rzhev
M Dnepropetrovsk = (West) -> Voroshilovgrad
M Nikopol = Northwest And (Caucasus) -> Voroshilovgrad

290 7/8/2018 9:11:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Return Strategy card to hand #1: 4 / Torch

Message from Allied:
I am going to take this back for now...

Leaving a big hole in Soviet lines is not a good strategy. So your spies inform you there might be an invasion coming soon.
289 7/8/2018 2:48:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Change Victory Points +1: from 11 to 12
Message from Allied:
Kharkov +1

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.

See prior entry for my Action #4 Torch Invasion
288 7/7/2018 4:40:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Play Strategy card as Event #1: 4 / Torch
Beachheads: Allied/US K-L,S. [BR1A], 2xUS Corps. PREREQ: US Build-Up. May not play after Sledgehammer

Message from Allied:
Good call on the Advance. I think the dance of Death might have been painful for the Panzers...

Invasion:
Allied BH in L, US BH in K
British 1st @ L
2x US SCU @K
All units advance ashore.


If we were using the Optional Rules - I would have to wait until Summer - but here we go. The second activity to happen in N. Africa this game!
287 7/7/2018 4:29:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message Yep, failed to spot it..

This is going really well.

(pza2) to Poltava, pza1 stay in kharkov
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.

I have taken pictures of the whole thing so lets give it a go.
284 7/7/2018 3:08:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message Sry.

GE6 -> Kharkov
PzA 1 -> Stalino, (PzA2) -> Stalino.

Guderian: (PzA2) no attack, DON Stil counts in defense right?
283 7/7/2018 2:57:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Waiting for you:

1) Unit Advances at Kharkov (VP +1)
2) Guderian's 2nd Attack?
282 7/6/2018 12:21:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message An average result and you captured Kharkov.

GE 2 loss = No effect. Panzers Advance 3

SU 4 loss = Flip Don and
Retreat (Don) 2 spaces -> Melitopol

Advances?
