327 2/19/2019 9:14:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message PS: I looked at the AREA site and we are pretty evenly matched, for what that's worth. :-)

326 2/19/2019 8:36:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message No rush, David. I thought we are moving along nicely, no worries if we slow down at times.

We are approaching the point in the game where we will have to plan and think harder. :-)

324 2/18/2019 10:18:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message To clarify my revised SR in full:

323 2/18/2019 10:12:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Since you have not moved yet, I want to make a minor adjustment.

Instead of sending a GEc to Warsaw from the RB, I will send it to join the other GEc at Ivangorod.

So GE11A alone in Warsaw.
GE9A with 2x GEc in Ivangorod.

I was hoping your would attack somewhere first, but I will content myself with making you think twice with the British for the rest of the turn.

Yes, I chose to keep the 5 card in the deck and purge two 4s. Fortunately, I got them both this turn.

273 2/16/2019 10:08:00 PM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message I just realized you haven't played an RP card this turn, so my decision to play WR as RPs may be rash. None the less I stand by my decision and we will see where this goes.
272 2/16/2019 10:04:00 PM Summer 1915 Allies Message I made the decision deliberately, regarding delay, it was just a tough call that I am second-guessing after your turn. I knew that I wanted to play 4 cards as events, so using one of only 2 cards intended for ops/SR might leave me having to pay a price to respond to moves from you. however, you are also constrained by the need to play events and not poised to take advantage.
acknowledged that CP is on 5A table. please proceed.
