72 8/14/2018 1:01:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message I was following your earlier advice to play it as an event late in the turn!
71 8/14/2018 12:13:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message bty for your turn. I would have played moltke for ops or RP on turn 1 instead of the event as you now allowed me to play falkenhyne which gives me +2 WS safely and starting turn 3 I can get to limited war. In future, moltke is very powerful card, just to even threaten the CP player because if I happen to play falkenhyne for ops, you can then play moltke after for event and I may have to wait a turn or so to get it back to then play for event
70 8/14/2018 12:11:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #13: 4 / Falkenhayn
May be played on Aug/Sep 1914 turns only after the "Moltke" is played or without restriction beginning in Fall 1914. Cancels the effects of "Moltke". Allows play of "Place of Execution"

Message from Allies:
Thanks again for the advice. Yes, both advance.
54 7/27/2018 10:22:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message usually when armies go up against single corps like this they're auto win. if you see the chrat I cant even hit you with only 1 strength from my corps, wont cause enough damage. If I were you, I would take back the pleve card for now as it was unnecessary to use against corps. If you happen to attack larger armies then use it this turn, otherwise I would just discard it at end of turn so you can draw more cards and hopefully more reinforcements

31 7/22/2018 6:45:00 PM August 1914 Allies Return Strategy card to hand #9: 3 / Moltke

Message from Allies:
30 7/21/2018 8:48:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Ok damn, wrote a lot for it haha. Anyways Moltke is a super powerful card IMO for allies. Reason being is that German's have Falkenhyne but he can't be played for event (and +2 WS) till moltke played. Germans only have +2 WS for GoA, +1 oberest, +1 reichstag truce and +2 falk. So to get to WS 4, I need to play falk (after you play moltke) or play 2 cards (oberest and reichstag) which obviously is 2 card play move compard to just one. I would recommend playing another 3 op card. Obviously I know you will have moltke this round or next round as we draw 8 cards to start and then back up to 8 next round. If you do play it as an event, good time to play would be AR5 or AR6. Reason being is that as the allies, you always get last card play of round, so you want to dictate how the turn will end and next turn starts. So your AR5 is super important. If you play someting that causes me to use OPS instead of playing card for RP or SR or event, that throws a dagger in my plans (can't tell you how many times I wanted to play RP for last card and then AP did move that forced me to play for ops). So I would approach this with mentality of what can I do to force him to alter his plays on his last turn (and then, going in to your last AR6, setting up for me to do something on my AR1 that I don't wwant to do for next turn). So sometimes AP would move in to a position to threaten german units for OOS for start of following turn, forcing CP to play ops on turn 1 to protect them instead of event/RP/etc.

Sorry for long winded response. Up to you if you want to continue or not. Just my 2 cents lol

With regard to last battle, unfortunately when BEF attacks (not defends)< it has to take hits first which is why it was flipped over french
20 7/19/2018 9:18:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #2: 2 / Wireless Intercepts

15 7/17/2018 10:37:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message you forgot to make your army in cambrai a reduced corp. If you wish to continue attack that's fine. Itll be 12vs10. Let me know
14 7/17/2018 8:21:00 AM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #13: 4 / Rape of Belgium
May only be played if CP played "Guns of August." May only be played as an Event if the Allied War Status is still at Mobilization. Subtract 1 VP.

Message from Allies:
Thanks for the advice. Retreat adjusted.
1 attack, 1 move.
13 7/16/2018 7:44:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message that is correct. So on your log file, just advance koblenz in for me and an army from liege in to sedan and increase VP. Attack was resolved correctly.

Of note, you may want to consider retreat cambrai-chateau thierry or chateau thierry-melun. Otherwise you have to plug it up quickly to prevent an army or corp running in to melun and nevers which will put your entire west front OOS. While you obviously can try to punch back, you'll be limited to the BEF and army in paris to activate. Meanwhile, I'll just rearrange my entire west front from mullhouse to prevent that. I guess you could move bar de luc up to CT. Just heads up
12 7/16/2018 7:41:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #1: 3 / Guns of August
May only be played in the first Action Round of the August 1914 turn. The Liege fort is destroyed. Place the GE 1st and 2nd Armies in the Liege space. The GE 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Armies are activated for Combat.

8 7/16/2018 12:12:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message OK, so we're doing the historical scenario, with the 8 card option. Any other departures from the norm?
7 7/16/2018 10:34:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message So the historical version starts with guns of august automatically. The board is set up for that. 8 cards is how most people play it nowadays (under optional rules/historiacal set up) in rules. Are you playing anything or if not we can resolve combat
6 7/16/2018 8:27:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Why are we starting with 8 cards instead of 7?

3 7/15/2018 8:31:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hey,

So I started game up. Ill be CP. Generally I play where opponents resolve battles (as attacker has to declare CC first) and then I usually type out in my log if I win, then who I want to advance, or who gets hits,etc. Same with if I'm doing regular attack or flanking.

SO with first attack, I'll leave it up to you if you have withdraw CC that you wish to play or not. If not, i'll do a regular attack in to sedan. I'll advance an army from liege + koblenz in to sedan if I can.

Also with regards to supply, I like to point out when a unit is OOS, as there's nothing worse than playing this game multiple tursn and missing something like that causing entire front to cllapse. Since you have not played much, I think we should play this way, so if you see something, call it out lol
