Note to self: Try reading the rules occasionally.
134 12/3/2018 8:28:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message Yeah, sorry. From the rules:


15.1 Spring Thaw

Players may not play OPS cards during the first two rounds of Spring Turns. They may take an ‘Automatic 1 OPS’, or Events that double as OPS, unless otherwise noted on the card.

133 12/3/2018 8:12:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message Are you sure? I thought that was just the first Action round of the turn? I'll have to check back in tonight. Sorry about that.

Axis places 4 Combat markers in any axis ocupied spaces (include. Multi-nationality spaces). +1DRM for all attack vs. Su this round. Allows Axis attack on Moscow. -1VP unless OKH Conference has been played.

Message from Axis:
combats in this order:

1) Mersa Matruh. Will get +1 for CC to be played. Should be auto-kill unless a CC might affect the result, but PzA could get flipped. Either way, will advance.

2) Konotop, L5 +1 vs L3, will advance if successful.

3) Kharkov, L4 +1 vs L3, if successful will have to see final dispositions to decide on advance.

4) Mozhaisk, L6 +1 vs L3, if successful will have to see final dispositions...
122 11/29/2018 6:37:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message No problem, I'll take care of it.
121 11/27/2018 8:22:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Ok missed that part. I'll SR him to the Reserve box. If you don;t mind can you do that in the return file?
120 11/27/2018 6:12:00 AM Spring 1942 Axis Message Sorry, but I don't think you can SR directly from Basra to El Alamein like that due to the effect of deserts on SR'ing:

"DESERT SPACES: Units may SR into or out of, but not through a Desert Space."

So the closest he could SR too by land would be like Deir Ez Zor in Syria. When I've played Allies in the past what I've always done with that guy is SR him up to the Reserve Box, and then on a later turn SR it back down to Alexandria or Suez.
119 11/26/2018 6:49:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Play Strategy card as Strategic Redeployment #20: 2 / Paradrop
"+1DRM" for Offensive fire. Maybe used once per turn only.

Message from Allied:
Using Para drops to SR. It really quite effective means of transport. Of course you have to be brave enough to jump out of a perfectly good airplane which taken at face value is the definition of insane.

102 11/24/2018 7:44:00 AM Winter 1942 Axis Message Hey no problem at all.

By the by, is your second attack on Melitopol coming from Stalino, not Rostov? Initially it looked like you were placing the marker on Rostov, but now it's on Stalino instead. Just checking before going on...
101 11/24/2018 6:44:00 AM Winter 1942 Allied Message I felt like there was something wrong with that but I couldn't figure out what it was. Modified file sent. Added an attack. No CC for me and it doesn't matter the order of the attacks
100 11/23/2018 11:20:00 PM Winter 1942 Axis Message Two Inf-only stacks cannot combine in attacking the same space. There has to be at least one mech in each attacking space, save one space only, in order to do a multi-space attack.

Add 1 VP. US Enters the war. Allow play of Allied US Build-Up card. PREREQ: May play after Summer 41.

Message from Axis:
Beat me to it! Almost did it last round but decided against it. Can never whether it's actually good for the Axis player to play this. Get a VP, get a low OP card out of the deck - BUT you're basically letting the Allied player 'off the hook' from having to take an action of his own to declare, and he gets to keep another high OP card in his deck.

Anyway, now that this card is just a low OP card may as well use it...for 2 OPs. Moved the troops out of Tripoli.
