The RU unit(s) must retreat 1 space. Full strength CP units may advance. Forts and non-RU units in space are still attacked. Aborted CP attacks still counts for MO purposes.

War Status increased to 11

Message from Allies:
Nice pick up on Minsk, I missed that should have retreated my [RUc] there. Nevermind I doubt it will matter. A draw is within the realm of possibility but I would consider it unlikely, but good on you for trying.
Might be a bit early to retreat but then again that is probably better than too late.

Message from Central Powers:
154 10/5/2018 10:26:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Hi Bindu,
Well it is looking very grim for the CP to be sure. That last move put paid to any chance of a CP win (long shot anyway!) but I may be able to pull off a draw perhaps?

I can pull back 'behind the Rhine' in the west and may be able to stabilise that if I get some trenches in. If I get the Tsar Takes Command card in the next draw, (and get a chance to play it!) that may help. That was the point of the drive on Minsk.

Full strength SB armies in the mountains sitting on the Bulgarian border is a problem for when they come in. Very sharp move! (but a little 'gamey' - just like GE and AH armies camping on the IT border! ;-)

Don't think I can hold Italian gains with only 3 armies and RU are too strong. In fact it is looking pretty crap everywhere!

Still like to play a few more moves though please, just to see if it is possible to recover a bit?

Message from Allies:
Agreed re losses and advance.

The ability to put my Western Front OOS is an illusion
I would have warned you of the OOS risk of your move but you had already rolled the dice for the trench rolls and the chances you would have thought the odds were 1/9 but I improved them thanks to my combat card.
Given no CP RPs this turn, this was an attack I was always going to risk.

151 10/2/2018 8:35:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Hi Bindu
Sigh.. Another super crap roll for me... :-( I was surprised you did the attack because the odds were not in your favour for pulling it off and if it failed I could have the opportunity to OOS most of your FR armies in the west. As it turns out the 5-1 result is enough to make my Strasbourg armies retreat, stave off the threat of encirclement and permanently eliminate the GE 7th A. I almost feel like with one (somewhat unlikely) roll of the dice it has destroyed the German war effort! It is certainly a decisive point in the game.

Flip GE 2nd A. GE 2nd (A) and 6th A retreat to Metz. I assume flip FR 2nd A and advance FR 1st A to Strasbourg to besiege?

Kovno and Grodno are already successfully entrenched. Remember your 'miraculous' dice rolls a few phases ago? Perhaps you would like to re-do some of your moves?

BTW I am available to chat most of the weekend (except late today - having a BBQ) if you want to chat. Got a question for you some time about my other game too!

Net VPs = 3, hence VP = 13
