82 12/15/2018 7:00:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I will play Minister of Transportation

due to Stalin being active he starts at 2 but gets
a bonus 1 -

Stalin directs that British Production be moved 3 spaces toward Russian side

81 12/15/2018 1:57:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Harriman deployed in debate to put Global Issue in a neutral position.
80 12/14/2018 8:20:00 PM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message No debate from Stalin
79 12/14/2018 7:35:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message Sorry for the delay, I've had a busy few days and haven't been able to get to the Vassal machine. I'll try and do better with at least responding on ACTS in future.

I'll play Beaverbook to advance the Global issue. He's a 3 with a +2 if Churchill is still active, so the Global issue moves to space 5 on the UK track.
78 12/13/2018 2:47:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >I guess I probably should wait for British as that might influence choice - thoughts?

I generally won't wait before declaring and chipping in earlier speeds up play. There might be times when I wait.
77 12/12/2018 6:16:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message No debate from Stalin

I guess I probably should wait for British as that might
influence choice - thoughts?

Also, I placed a marker on the eastern front due to
my last play - was that the correct marker and placed in the right area?
76 12/12/2018 5:53:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message UK then USSR can debate.
75 12/12/2018 5:52:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

5


Message from USA Roosevelt:
Arnold is moving A-Bomb to 4 on US track. If this roll is a 1 he also dies.
74 12/11/2018 8:29:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message UK does not debate either.
73 12/11/2018 2:02:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message USA will not debate Meretskov. Over to UK to decide whether to.
72 12/11/2018 2:01:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >I will play a card that will decrease the Russian Offensive marker by 2 and thus will gain an offensive support marker on eastern front (I guess regardless if it wins the debate or not)
I placed one of the larger cylinders on Eastern Frontbut not sure it that is correct.

It says played so I assume you get the offensive support marker whether it is debated or not.

OSMs are in a box on the join between the two theatre maps. The one you want to place is an artilliery pice counter.
71 12/11/2018 2:32:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >I will play a card that will decrease the Russian Offensive marker by 2 and thus will gain an offensive support marker on eastern front (I guess regardless if it wins the debate or not) I placed one of the larger cylinders on Eastern Frontbut not sure it that is correct.

Bob you didn't unmask the card, so we don't know what it is. I have first choice in debating it and probably won't, but I need to see what it is before making a choice.
70 12/11/2018 2:27:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >If you WIN a maker - move it to your top space, can it be moved back again or is it there for the turn once it reaches the top?

One of the other two can counter it (debate) to pull it back, otherwise it is in the bag and left where it is.

>a side still 'wins' the marker if it is on it's debate track by end of turn but you just don't get extra production markers if you haven't advances to the top of your column right?

The winner takes a production marker from the indicated power if the marker is not in the middle space. If the indicated power won the marker, it has no effect, other than contributing to their won issue tally.

I'll email a summary sheet of the issues that is from BGG.
69 12/11/2018 2:21:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message A-Bomb is covered by 6.10. If it is not in the middle space someone has won it. They will add it to their tally of issues in the count to see who has won the conference.

Regardless of who wins it there is a 50% chance that, if won, the blue marker will advance on the research track. This is modifiable by any power adding production markers. Add three and the advance is automatic.

If Stalin wins the A-Bomb issue he gets to advance the red marker on the track.

At the end of the game the different players gain VPs depending on where the red and blue markers are. Stalin gets 3VP for every red advance which is as much as the other two players get for winning a conference.
68 12/11/2018 2:09:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message A-Bomb: the issue is linked to the 5 space track on the right side of the maps, over Turkey. The USA is trying to progress the blue marker to the Trinity space to fulfil a Japanese surrender condition. The red marker shows the fruits of Soviet espionage in stealing the US research.

A conference issue is won if it is NOT in the central space at the end of the rounds of card play in the meeting segment. That means they have gone beyond the 6 space of a power's arm of the track and not been pulled back by being debated (countered), or lie on one of the 1 to 6 spaces after the cards are played out.

This applies to all issues. Two issues, Second front and USSR declares war on Japan, allow other things to happen if they are not won in a meeting segment and remain in the central space. Any issue left in the middle at the end of the meeting segment is not won by anyone. Whoever wins the most issues wins the conference and collects VPs.



67 12/10/2018 11:04:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message one reply so far from CONSIM:

I'm not an authority, but it appears the conference card and 5.26 govern this. A leader is active (no restrictions), allowed to debate but not advance (per conf card), or inactive (per conf card or used in conf) and not allowed to do either.
66 12/10/2018 5:54:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I will play a card that will decrease the Russian Offensive marker by 2 and thus will gain an offensive support marker on eastern front (I guess regardless if it wins the debate or not)
I placed one of the larger cylinders on Eastern Front
but not sure it that is correct.
65 12/10/2018 5:49:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message Just to clear up a couple questions.

Atom Bomb marker is "won" by Russia if it remains in the center, otherwise the side that has it 'gains' it's result?

If you WIN a maker - move it to your top space, can it be moved back again or is it there for the turn once it reaches the top?

a side still 'wins' the marker if it is on it's debate track by end of turn but you just odn't get extra production markers if you haven't advances to the top of your column right?
64 12/10/2018 3:11:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message USA won't debate Sir Hastings Ismay.
63 12/10/2018 3:10:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Roosevelt in this conference: I find the card text perplexing and see two ways of handling things. The text in full says...

Roosevelt stays in Washington: Cannot use Roosevelt during this conference to advance an issue (can still debate).

1. R can't be played as a card to move an issue 7 spaces. He can still be played as a card to move one 7 spaces back (debate). So what about...

2. Anything else? That is where I am unclear. Is the only thing he can't do advance an issue, or the only thing he can do debate it? Then...

3. Stepping outside the game rules. What's going on in the real world that is being simulated? R hasn't gone to Moscow but can communicate opposition to C and S and their aides arguing their cases I suppose.

I'm cool about how we handle it. My glance at the card saw the "(can still debate)" part and assumed that was all that was allowed.
62 12/9/2018 9:36:00 PM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message No debate for me
61 12/9/2018 5:01:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message And I also like the idea of putting the cards in three piles at the bottom of the map. As well as mking it easy to see who has a Pass available it will also help with reminders when there are effects that affect the next card played (e.g. if the Russians might need to shoot someone)
60 12/9/2018 4:58:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message Also, I think that Roosevelt should be showing as Active (he appears to be in the Inactive space, although his counter doesn't show Inactive). Since he's Active I think Harold Ickes should have had a +1 and the US Production issue should be in the 1 space on the US track. The card does say he gets the bonus if Roosevelt is active in the conference.
59 12/9/2018 4:54:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message I won't debate the USA play.

I'll play Sir Hastings Ismay (4 with a +1 because Churchill is still active, so he's a 5) and move the USSR Directed Offensive to the 5 space on my track.
58 12/9/2018 2:37:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >this also allows us to see what has been played

Good idea.
57 12/9/2018 8:01:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message Stalin will not debate the play so Nick can debate or allow and then take his turn to end round 1
56 12/9/2018 7:59:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message one comment - in the video, they placed the cards on top of one another at bottom of the board - because sometimes there might be a need for a 'pass'.

I suggest we place all the cards on top of each other
at bottom of board and at end of conference we can discard (this also allows us to see what has been played.
55 12/9/2018 2:02:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message USA play up next then. Harold Ickes played to bring US production back towards the center, from the UK 3 space. I don't want to gift production. Churchill may debate first.

Have called file 810 as a benchmark file for numbering.
54 12/8/2018 3:32:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message I'm happy to use the naming convention Paul's just described.

The video I've watched is the one by Stuka Joe, it's at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Cb9RBFTnKvQ . It's a walk-through of the extended example of play in the rulebook and helped me understand how the game works.
53 12/8/2018 3:19:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message UK will not debate either.

52 12/8/2018 1:37:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message USA will not debate Soviet UK production shift. Over to UK to decide.
51 12/8/2018 1:33:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Roosevelt is about to decide. Three points:

i. I haven't watched the videos. I might, but I tend not to. Which was the better one.

ii. I played Churchill for the 3rd time face to face last night. We did the middle length scenario. I also played the short one solo before we started this with an eye on the bots but not following them too seriously as working through them was slowing things down. As I have played FTF with the same two people three times it has occurred to me that there might be the occasional point that we are playing incorrectly, but haven't noticed because we are happily rolling along 'our way'.

iii. File names. I assumed we were going to use the system from the Sword of Rome games Bob. I called the first one 801 [8th conference, first file]. This approach makes putting things in order easier. You can then add any words like US card 3 or Hittites Attack.
50 12/8/2018 8:00:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I'll play a card with value of 3 and move the British Production up 3 then one move due to special ability of the card.

If you right click on the card to play for meeting it placed card in the special box to the top left on the board - I like the way the UTUBE video did it by placing the card next to your side - however I'll bow to you too if you just it in the separate slot.

Now we move to Roosevelt for possible debate
49 12/8/2018 7:40:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message other alternative naming would just be
Brit 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 ect
Sov 1.0
US 1.0
and every time one of us sends a map their side goes up a .1 - do that for all 3 conventions?


48 12/7/2018 4:40:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message I'll pick the Soviet Directed Offensive and the Pol-Mil 1/2.

Map to follow with USA and UK agenda picks. Now it's round to Bob to advance an issue
47 12/7/2018 6:28:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Apologies for slowness: Kitchen leak issues / dishwasher hell.

My issues are Pol-Mill 2/2 and A-Bomb.

Will do a file tonight or Nick can incorporate these when he does his two.
46 12/6/2018 5:57:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message my first call - 2 markers to center.

Global marker and British production marker
45 12/6/2018 3:33:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message I'm out all day so will catch up late(r).
44 12/5/2018 4:59:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message It’s been a trying day today and I’ve gone to bed early. I’m on the iPad and so can’t use Vassal so could Bob please update the board with my move as well as his?

I choose a US production marker, which ends up on the 3 space of my track.
43 12/5/2018 6:04:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message :-)
42 12/5/2018 6:04:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message Stalin is furious - American and British leaders are out to get Russia who is doing the bulk of the fighting against the Nazi invaders .... Memories are LONG in Russia.....
41 12/5/2018 2:48:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Nick to place then. After that round the table placing two in the middle space.

This is where I would have reached if I was playing the other positions. Using the leader card is too much of a drain as they can make such a difference later. I chose UK over USSR because USSR has a +1 on staff card plays in the coming advance/debate rounds and having an issue half way along his track boosts his chance of winning the conference (and hence VPs).
40 12/5/2018 2:43:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >So,looks like Roosevelt is (for initial placement)
sort of 'there but not there' and thus COULD intercede
but then would be truly INACTIVE for the turn.

That's fine and he would not want to burn the card.

USA lets UK win the right to place the first agenda item on their 3 space.
39 12/4/2018 12:47:00 PM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/kent-csi/vol47no1/html/v47i1a02p.htm


how about this tidbit from the CIA files....
38 12/4/2018 10:19:00 AM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message I agree it’s worth tracking the score after each conference - it should give us a feel for how things are going. I also found the military scoring a little surprising, but if you have a look at csw the question before yours was on exactly this topic and Mark H said the presumed answer in the question was correct. Worth noting for placement of support markers - it might be to one leader’s advantage to get a front to advance and cost other leaders some VPs when their forces do too well.

Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill have all now declined to intervene so it’s up to Paul, as the Arsenal of Democracy, to break the tie.
37 12/4/2018 5:46:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message BTW here is the answer to a previous question about the scoring:

Do conditions T-­‐W (and condition AA included in the errata above) where it says captured only score if the Front ends the gamein the space, or can it have moved past?

Per this rule: IMPORTANT! Some spaces award VPs if a Front ends the game in that location. A Front scores points for the furthest space it has advanced toward, or into, an Axis country. A player does not score points for spaces that the Front passed through, just the last space it advanced into, to include an Axis country.So, the answer is no, they do not score for spaces
that the Front passed through.There is no special significance for use of the term’ captured’ versus saying that a front entered the space. The term ‘captured’ was used for readability.

******************
I still think it's a good idea to try and keep track of current potential score during the game
36 12/4/2018 5:44:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message So,looks like Roosevelt is (for initial placement)
sort of 'there but not there' and thus COULD intercede
but then would be truly INACTIVE for the turn.

I still have not heard from CONSIM but yes, USA is on the block for decision.


35 12/4/2018 5:41:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message taken from the errata section on GMT games.

If a player uses their Leader to break a tie (say during the Agenda Phase), do they still have to discard a card (the Leader is not using their value or attribute) and/or make a Health/Paranoid roll?

Short answer is No.

As you have pointed out you are not using the leader value, but more importantly you are not using his card. The rule for using a leaders card
is in 3.31 where you always discard a staff card to use a leaders card to access his value and attributes. The key point is when you use a leader to break a tie, youare not using his card. Since when you are using a leader to break a tie you are not using his card, then you do not use his attributes or health/ penalties. Besides that you would not have a card to discard to break a tie at the end of the meeting segment as you have already played all of your staff cards.
34 12/4/2018 4:02:00 AM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message Stalin has already declined to break the tie. Churchill also declines so it’s back to Paul as the Arsenal of Democracy to say who wins the tie.
33 12/4/2018 3:25:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Yes I see what that is getting at. I put

>but Roosevelt is not there so I don't think he can

to be a little vague as I couldn't find anything definitive. Anyway Stalin needs to commit to breaking the tie, or not. Then R (there or not will decline the opportunity if there is one) and the choice goes to C. Then back to the tie-break.

I probably won't have ACTS for the rest of the day.
32 12/3/2018 7:52:00 AM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message 3.31 paras 2&3:

“During a conference a Leader is either active (and able to influence the conference once) or inactive (having already been used). Using your Leader card always entails discarding a staff card of your choice
and using your Leader’s value and special ability instead.

Due to health issues or conference card events, a Leader may have some restrictions on how they employ their once-per-conference use. Alternatively, Leaders can be used to win ties during the conference; see tiebreaker procedure (4.5).”

The conference card doesn’t say that Roosevelt is Inactive, it just says that he cannot be used to advance an issue. If you look at the Churchill card though, the health issue says that if it occurs then Churchill is “inactive during the next conference”.

31 12/3/2018 6:58:00 AM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message In the Stuka Joe video at around 32:30 you can see Roosevelt being used to debate an issue, and after that his leader block is moved to the Inactive space and his leader counter is flipped over to Inactive. I interpret that as him being an Active leader before that, assuming the video is correct, so he would be an Active leader at the time of our tiebreak.
30 12/3/2018 6:23:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I did post a quesiton on CONSIM so perhaps we'll get a confirming (or different) answer from Mark H.
29 12/3/2018 5:56:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I see my mistake (first of few I hope)

The Tie Breaker specificly says ACTIVE LEADER and USA is NOT active during this conference so it's up to British to first decide if he is playing Churchill - event card says only that he can DEBATE and the video indicated that this event shows leader as 'inactive'.

To speed things along I'll NOT use Stalin so either Churchill becomes involved (and then inactive for turn) or USA chooses between Brits and Ruskies
28 12/2/2018 4:21:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message That makes sense, but I think you might still be able to break the tie using Roosevelt, I.e. before Churchill has a chance. The rule refers to an “active” leader, Roosevelt is active (and able to debate issues, just not advance them).
27 12/2/2018 2:15:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message If that makes sense it is now over to Bob to decide whether to break the tie by playing Stalin.

Consequences of playing him: Soviets will choose 3 agenda items and one will be on the 3 spot. The downside is that powerful Stalin is done for this conference.

Consequences of not playing him: UK might get the 3 agenda item choices, with one on the UK 3 spot. Churchill will have been played though.

However, the USA might end up choosing between the UK and USSR, with no leader card play.
26 12/2/2018 2:11:00 PM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Agenda winner.

It was a tie. USA played a 2 and lost. This is the point the winner is measured from. UK played a 4 and gets an Imperial Staff +1 for 5. USSR played a 5. So UK and USSR tie. Whichever of them wins the tiebreaker will put a conference issue of their choice in the 3 box of their side of the table (5-2=3).

So who wins? We go to the 4.51 tiebreaker. Stalin can be played to break the tie and the USSR will place an issue as above.

If Stalin declines to do so we go clockwise, but Roosevelt is not there so I don't think he can.

Then Churchill can decide to break the tie if Stalin hasn't.

If either Stalin or Churchill are played then that's them used up for this conference. The cards are in the hand areas. If played put him somewhere on the table.

If neither are played then the 4.52 Arsenal of Democracy rule comes in and the Americans decide without playing a leader card. This is the default national characteristic that kicks in for tiebreaks.
25 12/2/2018 9:21:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Directed offensives.

From 6.4.

Players must allocate all of their productions markers, including bonuses, and they must be allocated first to the following priorities: 1. Allocations mandated by the current conference card (see 6.6) 2. Directed Offensives (two production markers each; see 6.7) After these two priorities have been satisfied, a player can freely allocate his remaining production markers to place offensive support and naval support markers (6.5), activate Pol-Mil issues (6.8), and gain modifiers for A-Bomb Research (6.10).

So a directed offensive forces a power to prioritise placement of production markers to a front over their free choice. This means that front is more likely to advance.

They are more of a pain for the Western Allies as they have more fronts. The Soviets only have the eastern front heading to Berlin and perhaps the far east. The far east is a tricky one.
24 12/2/2018 8:47:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >If the Russians chose a British or American Production chit and move it up their column it means that at end of conference that side needs to GIVE UP a chit to the Russians?

Yes. So you have negotiated help from them that they could have used elsewhere.

Sorry if slow this weekend guys. Have been dashing around doing mother things.
23 12/2/2018 7:01:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I'm not quite clear on the Directed Offensive markers
do they HELP your side or not?

If the soviets place a US DO marker on the board it seems it will then 'require' the US to spend production on their (US) own side of the fight against Axis ( I guess this is a negative as it forces another side to not be in control of their own production?)

I'm a little confused on this - does placing a Soviet direct offensive marker for debate HELP ME or Hinder me and do I try to WIN this issue or stop it from happening? - the two examples / notes given in rules don't really help me.
22 12/2/2018 6:48:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message If the Russians chose a British or American Production chit and move it up their column it means that at end of conference that side needs to GIVE UP a chit to the Russians?
21 12/2/2018 6:44:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message I have a few questions/comments.

I placed the cards down the bottom of board - like the video - so we can see what was played and also if we need to place a 'pass' marker we can see it easily.

On VP scores - the video said it doesn't matter until the end but I would like if we could adjust the score at the end of each turn just so we can see where each of us is. - However, on the scoring (on the combat side of board) the points seem to NOT be cumulative
so that if USA gets Iwo Jima and then gets Okinawa it's not 7 points but just 5 right?
20 12/2/2018 6:39:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message Order of play is now American placing 2, then Brits placing 2 and finally Russian placing 2 all in the center.


19 12/2/2018 6:39:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message Russian win so I'll pick GLOBAL ISSUE - the difference between my 5 and the American 2 is 3 so I get to place this issue 3 up on my column.

18 12/1/2018 8:31:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message WOW, that 2nd play thru of video now DOES make some sense of the game - We will have to 'pause' each movement for debate, ect similar to what we did on SOR for intervention ect until a side runs out of cards.

I suggest the player who's turn it is rolls for the leaders 'death/illness/paranoia at the end of their playing of the leader card to move things along
17 12/1/2018 8:10:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message Almost done with the video walkthru which was indeed helpful.

I will unmask my card now

One thing however is the cube markers - Paul I see where you placed them but where do they come from as I don't see a dropdown box for them
16 12/1/2018 7:48:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message Making sense of the military track and the reserve deployment:

The S W Pacific Front has cleared out Vogelkop / New Guinea and the spaces behind it like PNG and Solomon Islands. It comprises naval, air and land assets that, at this scale, we don't see and differentiate (but note the x3 Naval Support marker in the big Southwest Pacific Theater box, this is at the crucial 3 level to advance into amphibious spaces). The SW Pacific front is represented by a stickered stand up block (like an infantry block in a C&C game).

In front of it in Philippines are Japanese defenders trying to stop its advance towards Tokyo. You don't see them. What you do see is the deployment of additional units (the two reserve cubes) to beef up the defence of the Philippines in the battle (roll) that will come later on in this turn.
15 12/1/2018 7:38:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message From the components list:

>14 Small wooden cubes (6 black for German army reserves; 4 khaki for Japanese army reserves; 3 gray for Axis navy reserves; 1 dark brown for Italian army reserve).

The brown one Bob (khaki in the rules) is Japanese army reserves. The 'gray' one is Japanese navy reserves.

This scenario jumps in at conference 8. Along the way the axis reserves have been depleted. The Italians are out and the German navy is probably the missing gray one.

14 12/1/2018 7:34:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message >on my map the two markers in the Philippines - one grey and one brown I see (why not both brown? - where do the markers come from?

Did you walk through the log file? I took them from Japan and put them in Philippines to satisfy the Leyte Gulf event.
13 11/30/2018 6:17:00 PM Turn 8 UK Churchill Message I've watched the video and have some idea of what I'm doing. I've chosen a card and will now send the vsav file.
12 11/30/2018 6:32:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message the consim topic under GLOBAL FRONT has Churchill info.

at current 2170 comments it might take a while to wade thru this but I might start just to see about some other helpful hints, ect.
11 11/30/2018 6:28:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message >See the cubes in the Germany and Japan boxes.

on my map the two markers in the Philippines - one grey and one brown I see (why not both brown? - where do the markers come from?

In other Vassal modules there is a drop-down for cubes, cards ect. I don't see that on my board.
10 11/30/2018 6:03:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message See the cubes in the Germany and Japan boxes. Later in the turn they deploy against the fronts to blunt the Allied attempts at advancing. Two Japanese ones have already been deployed. Most of the other German and Japanese ones will be deployed when we reach the War Phase. Before that the Agenda setting needs to be resolved, followed by the Meeting itself (playing cards to fight over the issues) and the Decision segment (placing production to affect offensives etc.).
9 11/30/2018 5:59:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message The Northern front box talks about an "AXIS RESERVE" and the removal of this reserve (or parts thereof) if the convoy gets thru - WHAT or WHERE is this reserve?
I don't see it on the board in the Euro-theater area.

Currently If the debate centers (for me) on offensive action the subs die roll for Murmansk convoy are effected - and then the 'axis reserves' are lessened.

A good thing DA or Net?

7 11/30/2018 5:45:00 AM Turn 8 USA Roosevelt Message The conference card can be expanded in Vassal by hovering over it. I've dealt mine from my game and put it next to the computer.

The green backed strip is an event affecting the UK. Theis one will come in to play later in the turn so I put a note on the ACTS sidebar.

The red backed text affects the USSR and I rolled that out and shifted the marker. This will give the Soviets a little more oomph in their attacks later on.

The blue one says Roosevelt stays home. We therefore ignore him to push an issue towards the USA chair [you can usually use the Big Three leaders as a sort of 7 point joker to really swing an issue]. He can debate though according to the card. That means he can be used to swing an issue BACK 7 points as a response to another players' card that has advanced an issue. Maybe he is telegramming in an instruction.

The grey background sows Axis events. This card affects Japanese efforts in the SW Pacific. I moved two cubes to reflect this.

The white background events are to do with colonies and other countries. They cover things like the actions of governments in exile and partisan activity. The affected colony/country is determined by rolling two dice. Nothing happened this time as a 1-3 was not rolled.
6 11/29/2018 8:09:00 PM Turn 8 USSR Stalin Message First off, comment on the card showing - our DEBATE card.

The colors are for each of us - Green/Blue/Red?

The Grey and White sections are?

This card says that US leader stays home - may debate but can not be used during conference.

I dealt myself a hand of cards - I take ONE and move down to the board? - I'm looking at my cards and over half of them seem to be the same card just with different personalities on the top.
