637 10/14/2018 5:55:00 PM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message Given what I just said about no RUc in RB, do you want to instead retreat and/or change your last move? If I kill another RU army it will be permanently eliminated.
636 10/14/2018 5:53:00 PM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message You can say what you will about luck and dice - that last one saved you in many ways. As it stands, you now need to be careful due to lack of RUc in RB. Your dig rolls until now have been fortunate as well.

My loss - eliminate (GE11A) at Grodno, flip replacement GEc (8,0)

Next game we can switch sides :-)
575 10/11/2018 8:40:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #50: 4 / Allenby (BR Reinforcements)

573 10/11/2018 11:47:00 AM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message You are by no means a poor player, Michael. Indeed, as I said your position isn't bad at all and presently, you're ahead. Remember that until I can (if I can) get treaty of brest litovsk played I need 13 vps to win. Blockade is a serious think for the central powers.

You definitely want to know the rules well, but from what I was told, most experienced CP players at least get the Tsar to fall in most games using the wbc variant. I am not saying I can make that happen, but I am on the right path...

I have seen the USA armies enter the game and even get used multiple times.

I don't want to say no more because I am not that high level player myself, but also because I don't want to give too many tips for our game. :-)

I assume we are continuing?
572 10/10/2018 10:25:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message I am going to study the VC and cards and try to understand Russia and US , I am clueless at this point but I know what I am doing is not working, I told you I was poor player.
571 10/10/2018 9:37:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message I know the feeling, Michael. If it helps you any, I am feeling behind the 8-ball. The situation you are in presently usually happens to me earlier against a good CP player, and your position isn't bad at all. It usually gets tough for the Russians once the CP has all its armies on the map - but now that I say that, I am bound to slip or roll all 1s...

570 10/10/2018 9:16:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message I do not know what to do!
569 10/10/2018 5:49:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message You're up for your 5th card, Michael.

563 10/9/2018 8:45:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message retreat Vilna via Grondo.
562 10/9/2018 6:33:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message Also reminder that you still have your RU MO to complete.
561 10/9/2018 6:28:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message OK, another mistake...

The battle at Debrecan was a 5/5 result. You have to kill an army. We will eliminate RU3A and flip replacement RUc (4,0).

For my losses, I will flip AH2A, AH11A and AHc in Szeged.

At Kovno, after losing your army your RUc in RB are now (3,0).
I will flip GE10A at Insterberg for my loss.

Let me know where your Kovno force (RU6A, RU7A and (RUc)) retreat to, then I will decide on advance.
560 10/9/2018 11:11:00 AM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message You have to retreat, though, as you cannot hold the space due to no trench effects.
