I guess I better try and kick those Tommies out of Essen!
Attack: Kassel, GE 7th and 11th A attacks Essen. 10v4 down to 6-8 column v 5 column (I assume you can use the trenchs? Rules don't specify) Will use some flame throwers too, +1 CC.
Attack: Frankfurt, 3 GE armies attack Koblenz, 15 v 7 down to 12-14 column v 9-11 column. No CC.
Attack: Moldechno, GE 8th and 9th A attacks RU corps in Minsk. No CC.

455 5/24/2019 11:01:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message Hi Michael
I am back from holidays - had a great time, and now for a rest... Starting to feel my age! ;-)

Moving the corps to threaten Munkacs is a cunning plan! 1 in 6 chance of taking it and OOS the 3 AH armies - which of course would be very annoying! Have to think about that as I was going to use my last card as a RP!

Might want to re-think your move a bit though. After killing the corps in Italy you can only advance one space (12.7.2) Hence the reason why I claimed Asiago and Udine.

Let me know if you want to re-do anything there. I will wait for you before I do my turn.

Regards Tim
454 5/14/2019 3:25:00 AM Fall 1916 Allies Message A hard fight. French armies advance, 1 to Venice and other to Udine. I think that links supply to last (only) Italian army left.

Message from Allies:
Tim,

You're on hols so don't worry about responding til back.

Activate Bologna to destroy remnant corps in Venice.

Activate Dubno. Move army to Kamenets Podolski, move corps to Stanislaw via Tarnopol. Remaining army tries to dig in.

Not sure if this should be a formal warning for OOS but if Russian corps successfully attacks Munkacs that would put the three AH armies oos i think.

Slim chance but thought I'd let you know.

Will roll for entrench then, presuming you have no CC to defend the forlorn hope in Venice, for them too.

Also will send file with end AP5 when home tonight.

Likesay, no need to reply until you're back from hols. Send us some pics if you'd like and I'll do same on Stockholm.

404 4/4/2019 4:16:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message Tim,

The perils of drafting on the train without map and tools... On your sequence Russians lose at Lutsk first, burn last corps. Then get scratched twice in forest of north and survive your attack on KP. Though thinking about it they'd have only been scratched twice in any scenario.

To be frank, Eastern front remains fucked however so up to you on whether you would have dialled back on chance to wipe out a Russian army permanently.

I've made the only move i can in circs available, and Likesay you're barely scratched so am happy with you either:

Sticking with things i did by mistake, noting that 2 scratched armies in Grodbo and as you say no retreat. I am out of corps.

Or rolling attacks as you planned them with either a gutsy move to finish off Russkies that backfired or a spineless jellyfish move accompanied by chicken noises... 😉

Message from Allies:
Tim,

My apologies, having made a disastrous string of decisions, i confess i had a bit of a Moltke moment.

I don't think it matters over much though in terms of fixing it. Just swap corps that shouldn't exist in Grodno for flipped corps in Lutsk.

As for AH attack on K-p, you're not suggesting that as the attacks fell you'd want to not attack at 4 to try to kill another army? That was surely the point?

Anyroads let me know if your intent was to attack with a corps, or feel free to burn the army entire if that was plan.

In any event i apologise unreservedly for not following the sequence.

As for my go, the card that would have mitigated all this palaver (and in hindsight a 1/3 attack on Czernowitz in circs was a poor gamble).

402 4/3/2019 6:31:00 PM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message Hi Michael

Maybe I wasn't very clear but I did ask to roll the attacks in a different order and I asked you to pause before the AH one because depending upon the outcome of the first two I might have altered which units attack. Never mind will just go with it now.

First battle you rolled was Grodno (3v3 dice) with a 4-4 casualty result so no retreat for you, flip GE 9th A, elim RU 11th A and replace with last corps.
Second was Lutsk where the +1 drm was applied to GE roll making it 6-1 (same as 5-1) giving losses of 2 to the GE (elim corps) and 5 RU (perm elim RU 4th A and flip corps). Reduced corps must retreat 2 spaces, GE army does not advance.
Last attack was AH on K-P with a 1-6 result. 4 losses v 2. So flip RU army and flip AH army and elim corps.

May seem grim but no outlandish results re the dice there. It was always very likely you would lose at least two armies. In fact odds on would have been you lost three (two permanently), so it could have been worse.

Looks like we will both need a few RPs though!

Regards Tim
401 4/3/2019 2:54:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message Some crumb of consolation.

But only the briefest of respites.

Advance or not as you wish from other combats. Will try to salvage sth but susoect it's gone.

A GE attack vs. RU units adds a +1 drm. May be used against spaces with RU and other nationalities.

Hi Michael
Sorry can't use Mustard gas as it is a one off only and must be discarded straight after its use so will use this one instead for first attack from Lublin on Lutsk. Should have thought of that last turn!

So now can roll for first 2 attacks (GE). Please pause for the last one by the AH, ta.

Message from Central Powers:
Hi Michael
4 OPS. 3 attacks and a move. Need to do one at a time.
1st Move GE 12th army Warsaw to Kovel via Pinsk.
2nd ATTACK: Lublin to Lutsk and use Mustard gas CC +1drm. 7A v 5A.
3rd ATTACK: Insterberg to Grodno, 10A v 6A. Will decide on CC after first attack.
4th ATTACK: Czernowitz. Will decide attack composition after first two attacks.

Sorry to slow things down so much but getting finicky. Go ahead and designate CC if any for first attack and roll.

Regards Tim
392 4/2/2019 7:54:00 PM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message That was bloody! RU lose 5 (elim 10th A and flip corps?), AH lose 4 elim 10th A for symmetry. I think you only have one RU corps left in RB. Better have a look at rule 12.4.4. Army is permanently eliminated if no corps in RB. BTW I was reading in the rules about reduced corps in the RB - not sure how that happens as I assumed they were all full strength.

Over to you!

387 4/1/2019 8:49:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message Tim,

Last one on turn end, i think I'm still at eight as Ploesti was counted at turn before. Of course had you advanced into Bucharest... 😉

386 4/1/2019 8:32:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message Tim,

Yes a good roll there.

I retreat what's left through the lines to Lutsk and to the woods behind that. Rovno or Kovno. Damn Russian names all sound the same...

Yeah that attack on Lublin went fairly well for the GE and AHs. 7 hits on RU elim army and corps and flip other corps. Retreat to where? CP losses are flip the AH 4th A and one GE corps. Advance GE 10th and a GE corps depends which path you retreat to, but at least into Lublin to wreck some trenches.

Regards Tim
384 4/1/2019 5:29:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message More brilliant outcomes for the Allies. 7 lf for Allies, 3 for CP.
