854 3/17/2019 12:40:00 PM Spring 1945 Axis Message ok, great.

I had a feeling that Partisans was the ace card you had if needed, to which I had no answer. I just didn't have enough GEcs to cover everywhere.

I'll set up. No problem re the pace; I know you've got your hands full at the moment.
853 3/17/2019 11:10:00 AM Spring 1945 Allied Message Yeah - that Turkish adventure was a surprise to me as well - nicely done to get in TK!

Also: I'll give you free tip - my desperation last play would have been to deploy partisans. Brest and Bergen, for example, worth 2VP. ;)

I'm happy to play another as well, set up at your convenience. My pace will be more 'deliberate' at times as I am relatively busy at this time. (Way too much POG but I do have some other things going on as well.)
852 3/17/2019 11:07:00 AM Spring 1945 Allied Message 4/2, GE14(A) perm eliminated.

4UKR advances into Berlin.
2BEL advances to Hamburg via Magdeburg.

And I think that's it for the thousand-year Reich.

(VP subtractions also due for Yalta, Ruhr, Hamburg, Berlin, Budapest.)
851 3/17/2019 11:04:00 AM Spring 1945 Axis Message That's it; thanks for a great game. I was hoping to take it to the last turn, but HO was the final nail. Well played again.

My misreading of Casablanca came as a shock and resulted in my desperate Turkish adventure, which nevertheless resulted in an unconventional and absorbing tussle. Remarkably it nearly worked, but a succession of HO really screwed up any hope I had.

Happy to have another. Let me know.
