96 3/27/2019 10:11:00 AM Turn 5 Jon Message There was a +2 drm provided by the 2 air units I committed, so the result was 0/3 instead. Would you like to take the additional hit on the reduced Army and keep the hex with the remaining Corps or retreat that reduced Army 1 space instead?

84 3/18/2019 9:05:00 AM Turn 5 Jon Message I see our file names got screwed up somewhere along the line. The last 8 files all should have been labeled "T4" and not T5. Oh well. We are now starting Turn 5.
83 3/18/2019 9:03:00 AM Turn 4 Jon Change game turn Game turn changed to Turn 5

Iraq Diplomacy roll
78 3/14/2019 9:02:00 AM Turn 4 Jon Message Thanks for the warning. Sorry to hear of your broken arm. Please of course take care of yourself first. The game, and I, can certainly wait.
77 3/14/2019 6:13:00 AM Turn 4 Simon Message Fair warning. Iím going to have an operation tomorrow to fix a broken arm so Iíll be quiet for a few days.

76 3/12/2019 7:00:00 PM Turn 4 Jon Message Axis player turn is complete
75 3/10/2019 2:27:00 PM Turn 4 Simon Message retreated as suggested
74 3/10/2019 4:48:00 AM Turn 4 Jon Message Result is 1/4. Up to 2 of the 4 losses can be taken by retreating that number of hexes instead of taking hits, which means taking a minimum of 2 actual hits. As there are only 4 hits in the hex that can be absorbed before they're all eliminated, you will not be able to hold the hex by the way. As a suggestion, you put 1 hit on the Fort, eliminating it and replacing it with a Inf Corps, and then a 2nd hit on either that new Corps or on the Army, reducing it to a Corps as well. Then either the 2 Inf Corps or the reduced Army, whichever you choose to keep, can retreat 2 hexes. I'll send back to you for your decision.

45 2/27/2019 5:56:00 PM Turn 2 Jon End Turn
44 2/25/2019 4:52:00 PM Turn 2 Simon Message done . I hope. Thank you for the input I hope as the game progresses ill need less corrections

43 2/24/2019 2:29:00 AM Turn 2 Jon Message I understand the learning curve you are experiencing on this game. Certainly took me a while at first myself. I appreciate you may have questions with the game and I can help. Just ask away.

Anyway, uploaded a new file. A few issues needs to be addressed on diplomacy (can't try for Yugoslavia at this time) and moves (it's a Mud turn so all ground movement is slowed, and added a discussion on using UK Naval Transport vs Overseas Strategic Movement).
42 2/21/2019 6:13:00 PM Turn 2 Simon Message I did mess up a little and started moving before my builds which therefore appear after I started moving. But it made no difference to the turn overall.
41 2/21/2019 6:12:00 PM Turn 2 Simon Message I think Im done . Im still coming to terms with the game and will hopefully speed up as we progress

Message from Simon:
Targetting Yugoslavia for diplomacy
39 2/16/2019 8:40:00 AM Turn 2 Jon Message I had already added in your MSPs for each of UK, France and the USSR. That's done for all countries all in the same phase at the beginning of the turn. Also by the way, you can't ever stack 3 Surf Support units in one port.

It's actually up to your Allied player turn portion of Turn 2. Your strategic naval moves for Turn 2 were not going to affect my player turn so I had gone ahead and done my player turn.
38 2/15/2019 3:54:00 AM Turn 2 Simon Message finally done

37 2/15/2019 3:51:00 AM Turn 2 Simon Message ignore my last message

36 2/15/2019 3:48:00 AM Turn 2 Simon Message am I correct in saying I don't need a naval unit to STRATEGICALLY move a unit via sea.
35 2/10/2019 2:31:00 AM Turn 2 Jon Message As taking care of your strat naval moves wouldn't affect my turn because I'm not moving out to sea, I went ahead with my turn. New file uploaded.
34 2/10/2019 1:03:00 AM Turn 2 Jon Message Unsuccessful but will put the +1 Axis Dip marker on Romania's marker on the chart.

Message from Jon:
...and here's the roll for the attempt.
32 2/10/2019 1:02:00 AM Turn 2 Jon Message Figuring no need to wait on the strat move question as I'm not putting out to sea, I'm going on to my turn. In the Org phase here is a roll for a diplomacy attempt on Romania, spending 5 MSP. So only on a '1' for now.
31 2/10/2019 12:18:00 AM Turn 2 Jon Message I don't follow the UK moves exactly. Looks like one Surf that was in the North Sea RTB'ed to Bristol. Bristol is not on the North Sea though so the ship can't RTB there. Can only go to London, Newcastle or Scapa Flow as the only currently friendly ports available on the North Sea.

Also, there is still the Surf face up out in the North Atlantic. Are you indicating that he was to RTB end of last turn and then go back out to the N. Atlantic? If so, then he'd be face down by the way.
30 2/9/2019 6:04:00 PM Turn 2 Simon Message Allied naval done
29 2/6/2019 4:18:00 AM Turn 2 Jon Message Axis initiative again, so I'll send back for the Allies to put out any ships to sea first.

25 2/3/2019 2:41:00 PM Turn 1 Simon Message Ive returned my corps home as the navy wasn't in place. I made a deliberate decision NOT to do diplomacy right or wrong but thanks for Alerting me. I just assumed we were at war but if I have to pay the 50 I wont bother more capitulation from the west.
24 2/2/2019 9:30:00 AM Turn 1 Jon Message Ok, great. Appreciate the willingness to use them. Any feedback on the file I uploaded? Shall we go on to Turn 2 then?
23 1/31/2019 10:45:00 AM Turn 1 Simon Message Iím not bothered about balance just what makes the game more interesting so if you recommend these letís go for them
22 1/31/2019 9:18:00 AM Turn 1 Jon Message Hi Simon. Will load up a file momentarily that includes a number of things I've mentioned on your turn. Please take a look.


And quite sorry to mention this right after starting the game but I had completely forgotten to bring up Optionals. In the past after having played several games, I found the following to be all good additions/changes to the game in my estimation:

23.1 (more pro-Allied - very valuable to them later on)
23.2 (usually more pro-Axis, although not necessarily depending on player styles)
23.5 (pro-Axis - although it doesn't come up much)
23.6 (pro-Allied - prevents all of Vichy all over the map from immediately going 'German Ally' when only a FR possession, e.g. Syria, is attacked)
23.7 (more pro-Axis, particularly b/c of the Med., but again, not necessarily)
23.10 (pro-Allied - this one's a real 'biggie' for them)

If you're amenable, would like to add these to our game. What do you think?


And just to mention in case you were wondering, I very much dislike 23.3, don't know what to make of 23.4, think 23.8 is wholly unnecessary extra work, recommend against 23.9 as I believe it would really hurt the USSR, and think 23.11 is pointless.

Regards,
Jon
