Sedan
9 1/3/2019 10:19:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Actually since Italy is currently neutral, the Allied MO result is none. See 7.1.2.
8 1/3/2019 10:11:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message The only thing you could have done better was you should have 1st played the card and then roll for the flank attack.

It makes a small difference in timing. Also, when either of us are rolling for trenches we have to say who is moving where before rolling for trenches. According to the rules, the sequence is: move first and then after all movement is done then roll for trenches. If you roll before movement, the rolls may influence who and where they move. That why declare all movement first then roll.

The Vassal was fine except I don't know why you used an Allied round marker instead of the MO marker. I will fix it.

Lastly, I don't believe the Axis have a CC that can be used in this situation but if you did, you would play it now. I will assume you do not have a CC.

Do you know how to create Vassal log files? If not, I'll create the first 1 and tell you how to make them yourself.
With ACTS, per the scenario rules, you have to play Guns of August as the event. So draw your cards, select it, enter who is attacking where, state if you are playing any CC and select play as event. If you are playing a CC, select the CC and state what battle it is being used for. The defender will then play any CC, resolve the battle and retreat if necessary or cancel retreat, win battle, etc.

The next steps are yours.
