Bty.
338 4/15/2019 10:07:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message just FYI, if you want to keep that -1 modifier, you technically need to attempt entrech/movement on your next round. so if you play RP now, that goes away. not sure if you wanted to re-arrange card play or just forget about the -1?

330 4/13/2019 8:01:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Andy, you're killing me this turn. I can't attack or play an Event because I'm constantly reacting to your moves. I wanted to attack in Turkey and maybe Przemsyl again, but no dice. I needed to play Italian Army for the Event, but couldn't. This game is HARD!
329 4/13/2019 7:34:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Oh lol I meant it as a joke. You were trying to rush some Russians up to the front but with how bad my dice are in West and Italy they should take their sweet time.

307 4/11/2019 4:27:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Got it Andy!
Sorry to be a little slow on the uptake. This thing is quite complex, and I feel like Iím trying to dismantle a bomb every time I load the map. Do I cut the red wire or the green wire?
306 4/11/2019 4:07:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message correct...but what i meant to say was on my next turn, i could move in to grodno with germans, and then move AH armies out of pryzsmal, one to stay in lutsk to siege, other to take rovno as armies can continue moving once one army at least lays siege to a fort. granted it would be risky and would require lot of manuevering haha
305 4/11/2019 2:20:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Andy, you destroyed the Fort in Grodno, so no siege possible. But until you advance into it I think it is still AP controlled. So to surround the Warsaw-Brest-Kovel spaces I think you would need to Siege Lutsk, and control both Rovno and Grodno. Do I have that correct?
304 4/11/2019 1:13:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message your right on combat..totally forgot about von francois..he had such a lackluster appearance, immediately demoted!

and i believe i can lay siege to grodno. ic an trace supply through it, but i dont think you can

301 4/11/2019 12:33:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Wouldnít you have to convert Grodno first? I think I can still trace supply thorough the destroyed Fort?
300 4/10/2019 9:59:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message for what its worth, your dudes in middle at risk of being OOS if i run for rovno (leave an AH to seige fort and contine after rovno)...would be risky but possible
299 4/10/2019 9:55:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #52: 5 / Fall of the Tsar
May only be played if Russian Capitulation marker is in the "Fall of Tsar Allowed" box. Add 1 VP plus an additional 2 VP if RO is still neutral. RU Activation costs 1 OPS per unit, not space, for Combat only (even if all units in the space do not participate in attack(s).) RU corps may no longer move (can still SR) between the To Caucasus Box and the Near East.
