549 9/26/2019 8:36:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Certainly. And I'm with you on ftf gaming. It is my clear preference as well. Just so darn hard to find the opponents.
548 9/24/2019 6:33:00 PM Fall 1944 Allied Message No need to apologize. The game was probably out of reach. I thought I could make a last minute run at it but maybe not. I'm just a little burnt out on PBeM. It happens to me. I so much prefer FtF but lack of time and opponents prevent that. Give me a few weeks to come out of my shell and we can play another game if you are willing to do so.
547 9/24/2019 8:31:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Ken,

Sorry for what happened. It was kind of a bad day. Poor excuse, but it's only the one I have... Anyway, I certainly enjoyed our past gaming quite a lot and if amenable I hope we can do so again in the future.

Take care,
Jon
546 9/9/2019 9:57:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Play Strategy card as Operations #8: 2 / Hitler Declares War
Add 1 VP. US Enters the war. Allow play of Allied US Build-Up card. PREREQ: May play after Summer 41.

Message from Axis:

545 9/9/2019 9:55:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message My apologies. I should not have even started this conversation. Not lack of fun really, just the situation is basically so 'crazy', I was thinking. Sorry for the trouble. Sending my next turn, if I haven't killed the fun for you yet anyway...
544 9/9/2019 9:44:00 AM Fall 1944 Allied Message I recognize the position I'm in, but I wasn't ready to give up. On the other hand, I also really don't want to play a game with an opponent that is not having any fun (which is why I assume you suggested we end it). Its a game, its meant to be fun, not a chore. If you were no longer having a good time then I absolutely want to shut it down. We probably both have enough stress in our lives, we certainly don't need it in the few minutes of downtime we get.

So its all good.
543 9/9/2019 9:30:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Sorry, I'm guessing you are now disappointed. Was thinking you might have had enough of it too, but apparently I was wrong. I can definitely continue if you'd like.
542 9/9/2019 9:23:00 AM Fall 1944 Allied Message No worries. We can end. Thanks for the game!
541 9/9/2019 9:17:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Or are you asking about the "craziness" comment...?
540 9/9/2019 9:15:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Yes, I mean ending.
539 9/9/2019 8:20:00 AM Fall 1944 Allied Message We can end if you'd like but I'm not sure what you mean?
538 9/9/2019 8:15:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Can we just end this. I'm really not good at craziness like this.

For your attack on Warsaw, attackers are down to LCU 4, vs LCU 5 on defense.
526 9/6/2019 6:34:00 PM Fall 1944 Allied Message (I'm kidding about the winning part. Please go ahead and attack.)
525 9/6/2019 1:23:00 PM Fall 1944 Allied Message Yes, please make the attack with the stipulation that I have to win.
524 9/6/2019 9:09:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Was thinking may have come up once before, but I can't recall. Anyway, Supply is determined at the instant of activation. (Please see 13.1) So that one Front is OOS for the length of the activation and would cause a 1L shift, on top of the the 2L shifts for river and urban. Would you still like to make the attack anyway?
523 9/5/2019 9:17:00 AM Fall 1944 Allied Play Strategy card as Operations #15: 3 / Casablanca
Treat all Neutral spaces as Allied for VP purposes. PREREQ: May play if Allies control Oran & Algiers, or Syracusa, & there are no Axis controlled spaces in Libya or Egypt. (Subtract 1 VP for each currently neutral VP space.)

2 moves, 1 attack, all over in the East.
519 9/1/2019 8:20:00 AM Fall 1944 Axis Message Your attack is automatic. Only question is how you want to advance. You can either take care of that and send a new file, or you can just tell me to where your Army will advance and I'll take care of it.

thanks
495 8/18/2019 8:14:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message If you advance into Naples you have to stop because of the mountains. Do you want to advance into and stay in Naples, or do you want to not advance and just stay in Catanzaro?

492 8/14/2019 9:19:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message My unit at Naples is wiped out, nothing to you of course. Figure there's no need to send a file for this as you can readily take care of the loss and then decide on a possible advance into the mountain space in Naples.

481 8/6/2019 8:21:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message Everything ok?
480 7/22/2019 8:43:00 PM Summer 1944 Axis Message Unfortunately you can't invade Taranto like that because I control Syracuse. One of the various RESTRICTIONS under rule 7.63 is - "No Allied invasions may take place at J (Marseilles), O (Naples), or R (Taranto) while the Axis control Syracuse." (Also, the BR 8A also comes in reduced.)

So with Husky you will have to invade at either Syracuse, Gela or Palermo in Sicily, or Salonika over in Greece.


I realize you won't be getting this for a few days. Hope you enjoy the conference. By the by, noting your comment on Husky being maybe too late, I have to imagine that's probably going to be the case. Just wanted to mention that We don't necessarily have to play this one out to the 'bitter end', if you will. Whenever we finish, either at the end or perhaps calling it early, I would be up for switching sides and restarting if you'd also be interested in that.

470 7/13/2019 7:11:00 AM Summer 1944 Allied Message my bad then. I did a file to fix the loss and retreat but must have forgotten to send. I just did.
469 7/12/2019 9:12:00 PM Summer 1944 Axis Message Oh sorry, I was just waiting to advance at Jutland for you to make the adjustment to your losses there. The loss number was 6 but you had taken 7 losses by eliminating one LCU for 3 and flipping both the US and BR SCUs for 2 each. Was thinking could re-flip the US SCU back to full and eliminate the flipped BR SCU instead, or both LCUs would have had to be eliminated and then would be remaining 2x BR and 1x US full-strength SCUs instead. What you decide and then how you retreat would affect how I advance.
468 7/12/2019 8:23:00 PM Summer 1944 Allied Message SO I am incredibly confused. I thought that you wanted to advance at Jutland. The file you sent was the attack result with no advance at Jutland.

Sorry I'm being dense I guess.
467 7/11/2019 7:54:00 PM Summer 1944 Allied Message did you send a file?
