546 6/2/2019 9:16:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Thanks very much for the game!
545 6/2/2019 9:16:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Yes, it is, I thought I could take full advantage of the Italian front but the front stalled. I think the Eastern Front was on the verge of collapse. If I had to make a prediction I think you would have won by deciding the eastern front before the end of the game.
544 5/28/2019 4:01:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message That's alright, the game had lost it's momentum. That sometimes just happenes.
I did have fun, and I've learnt a valuable lesson: Italy is definitely the achilles heel of the Allied Powers and one should not underestimate the vulnerability of this front.

Thanks for the game and good luck with your health!
543 5/26/2019 6:51:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Hi,

I think im going to call it on this game to be honest ive not got the time to finish v busy at the moment. My health is also not very good and my ability to concentrate is hampered. Thanks for the game and for helping me with rules etc.
542 5/12/2019 6:44:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #26: 3 / Lusitania
May only be played after "Blockade" and before "Zimmermann Telegram". Subtract 1 VP.

Replacement points: A: 0, BR: 1, FR: 1, IT: 1, RU: 2

Message from Allies:
I'll play this one for RP
541 5/10/2019 3:48:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message Of course you can't know it, but on ACTS the rule is: whatever mistake you make while rolling the die, the first one is always the attacker roll and the second one is always the defender roll.
In that case there can never be any discussion about the outcome.
Now I am quite disadvantaged by the outcome.
But never mind, it can happen.

533 5/3/2019 4:59:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Afterme saying can we keep the pace up ive been busy too :( sorry mate, will make my move tomorrow
532 4/28/2019 4:41:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message POG is really the brainburniest game I know. There's so much to do! After staring at the board for fifteen minutes I finally decided to replace the Warsaw-Lodz move with:
FR7 Paris > Verdun.
531 4/27/2019 6:12:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message No thats fine if you can keep the pace up to a move every day or every other day ish I can carry on. :)
530 4/27/2019 5:18:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message Sorry about not showing a sign. I've been thinking about doing a move regularly, but somehow something came in between every time.

Actually I would like to continue. I'd love to see what happens with the Italian front, it always was a quiet one in my earlier games.
Shall we give it one more shot?
But if you really would like to stop I obviously understand.


529 4/27/2019 4:39:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Shall we call it a draw? I think two weeks between turns is too much for me mate. No offense. Its been brilliant I really enjoyed it.

527 4/15/2019 4:21:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message I have to think a little bit about what now.
Every move counts!
526 4/15/2019 4:18:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message A German corps, but I see you retreated that one to Breslau earlier.

Maybe we should compare boards again after this turn.
525 4/15/2019 3:36:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message No worries. Eastern Front is looking a bit scary now!

What units do you see in Lodz? I see no units there.
524 4/15/2019 2:55:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message I was planning on moving them a few turns ago but decided to do something else without correcting it on my board.
In that case I'll move them all to Insterberg.

518 4/10/2019 3:50:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message No, you don't. The SR value of the card needs to be 4, which is exactly what it is for all 3 OPs cards.
517 4/10/2019 4:20:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message You need 4 ops to SR an army sized unit

My board said 10VP, I must not have been updating it. SOrry.
500 3/24/2019 6:26:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message I'm not sure how we can be at 13 VP.
In post 468, the last time VPs were mentioned, we were at 8 VP...
499 3/24/2019 6:24:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message There is a FR(c) in Genoa (see post 462)

467 3/15/2019 1:46:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Yes I am, but I got a lot on my mind lately, so my concentration is lacking.

465 3/14/2019 4:31:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Dont worry. Are you still enjoying the game?

GE3 advances to Bologna
464 3/14/2019 3:32:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message I'm really not sharp the last couple of turns...

I distributed 5 loss points, the FRc is 1 loss point.

But with 4 loss points I'll elimate the FRc for 2 and flip the FR3 for another 2. IT(3) and IT1 retreat to Florence.
463 3/13/2019 5:56:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message I dont understand why all of your units are flipped. I caused 4 losses and you have 6 losses. ITA x 2 = 4 losses + Frc (2 losses)
462 3/13/2019 4:32:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message IT(1) and IT(3) retreat to Florence.
FR(c) retreats to Genoa.
461 3/12/2019 5:33:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message You have a FR corp there too dont forget
460 3/12/2019 5:18:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message That is disastrous...

Result 4/2 (you had the CC from last turn as well, but that doesn't change the outcome)

All my units are flipped. Let me think a little about the retreat path. As in racking my brain...
459 3/12/2019 5:15:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Ah sorry, each corp reduced 1 step and they get left behind
