466 6/13/2019 3:00:00 PM Fall 1916 Moderator Message Congrats Mark.

As this is a double-elimination tournament, you'll both pass on to the next round. Good luck.
465 5/26/2019 5:40:00 AM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message Thanks Mark.

It seems like a steep learning curve. I played a couple of times before, but quite a long time ago and I never got the hang of it.
464 5/25/2019 4:19:00 PM Fall 1916 Allies Message Hi Michael,

I think that is not a bad call. I believe I will have the forces and cards to just make it increasingly hard on the Germans to maintain an army, and if you traded space for time/force, I might be able to push the VP to zero.

Good game. I think you recognized the chief thing I would point out, which is how important it is to play for War Status early, I think especially for the CP. The CP needs those armies in place, and the card mix that comes with it at TW. I think you were setup to pressure Russia well, but at the cost of a relatively weak Western Front.

thanks for the game, you were a pleasure to game with.

I will report results to Tom/Michael.

my best,
Mark
