880 11/27/2018 7:11:00 AM Winter 1919 Allies Message Hi Hank
In general, although I agree with your analysis, I must stress that the loss of Basra was avoidable (and maybe a little luck would have been useful in that attack) and that High seas fleet even holding a grand fleet. With those two points the game would have ended at 9 but even just holding Basra would have been a draw. On the contrary, I think instead that the Russians have moved too much and would have instead had to trench more to the north but obviously the right theories are those of who wins :-)
I fully agree that it was a good and funny game.
Ciao Mauro

I have final VP after bid at 12VP. Good, fun close game.

My general CP plan is to try and hammer the west till I get ~14 German armies then go all out East and get at minimum Tsar Takes Command. This is a must. If Im AP I do whatever I can to force the CP to react to my move, and early game thats hitting AH hard with the Russians.

In our game the early Russians quitely built up a strong northern force. AH was never pressured. Turn 5 & 6 the Germans went hard against the west and did well, forcing the AP to mix hexes with Brits and French. These two turns the very Strong Russian North force did nothing even though many RPs were being spent by the AP to rebuild the French. Finally turn 7 the strong northern Russians struck, but it was a turn too late as the Germans had already hobbled the west. Turn 8 the Germans went to 14 Armies and counterattacked the strong Russian northern Force. The Russians got no aid from the jumbled up west (and why should they expect it... the Russians did not give aid to the west earlier). The Germans crushed the northern russians.

I think the CP won because they were able to devote full attention to hurting the West on turns 5 & 6 becuase turns 1 thru 4 nothing from the Russians, and turns 5 & 6 nothing from the Russians.

The disater for the Germans was the 'early entry' of the Romanians. Early because the AP got them in the first redeal. CP was going to use that turn to prepare for Romainia but Romainia came on first. That was bad luck. Too help make up for ths the CP had to rely on some 'good luck' at Cluj and got it. Think I gave the AP three chances at 25% to isolate two German armies. Had too, the cost in OPS to 'fix' Cluj was too high. CP had to take Romania to win, not Cluj.

I have a 'replay' of our game up at http://www.abovethefields.com/wargame/top_pog/index.htm , its the last one on the list.
