254 4/15/2019 10:41:00 PM Summer 1915 Allies Message Oh brother, I keep shooting myself in the foot. I have the game setup on a table in order to get a better overview and feel for the game that a zoomed out view of VASSAL lacks. When I setup the game, I mistakenly put the SN c in Baghdad, same color, and it has a movement of 1. My initial idea was to move to Kut, but a 4 to 1 movement advantage made Kermanshah possible. Replacing the SN c with a TU c means I would like to move the Basra c to Kut. Thanks again.
253 4/15/2019 9:38:00 PM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message M BRc Basra to Kermanshah

If you do this, I can move my corps in Bagdad to besiege Basra and cut off your supply. British units must be supplied through London

227 4/10/2019 11:03:00 PM Summer 1915 Central Powers Message I meant that FR5 should be flipped because you had only one French replacement corps. You would need two to create a full army

E.g., a space containing 2 armies and a corps is activated, one unit may be used for an attack and the other two do not need to participate. Trying to avoid another SNAFU.
