I will remind you that you haven't done your MO yet. I did inform you that the FR attack you did in Italy doesn't count (entry 720), but I'm wondering if maybe you missed that message. Or in case you're planning to do it now, then just ignore all this :)
737 4/23/2019 9:12:00 PM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message 3-4

Flip AH10. You techically have options, but I'm going to go ahead and flip RU8 and eliminate RUc, because it's the only sensible choice here.

And yes, I think you did play that card correctly. Haven't done it myself, but it sounds right. As long as it's removed from play afterwards, that's the important thing.

Supply threat to units in Ploesti and Bucharest.

You may be aware of this but I just want to point it out in case you're not: The OOS units in Verona won't be resupplied just because Milan is also OOS. If this was the attrition phase both Milan and Verona would be OOS and the IT armies in Verona would be permanently eliminated.
715 4/21/2019 7:03:00 AM Spring 1917 Allies Message I will advance RU9 to Riga. VP 16, 3 in Russia, Fall of Tsar Allowed status = 32.

Flip GE8, flip RU4.

GE8 permanently eliminated. Advance?

I still think my victory is fairly safe, but this completely changes the game on the eastern front. Now the war might go on for a bit longer I think.

Yes, I'll leave the RUc in Elizabethpol. It at least requires you to dislodge it before you take Baku.
668 4/14/2019 9:17:00 AM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message I'm sorry to say that you just broke one of the most obscure rules in PoG, namely that Russian units can't SR outside of Russia.

"13.1.6 Russian SR: Russian units may only SR inside Russia including the Russian Near East. This includes both overland SR and also SR from or to the Reserve Box. Russian corps are not allowed to SR by sea."

So the corps in Tarnow, Uzhgorod and Munkacs cannot be SR'd to Riga.

The reason for this rule is thematic and it's because the Russian rail lines used a different rail gauge than the rest of Europe :P

So feel free to take back your card play entirely, or SR differently if you want.

As for the [RUc] in Elizabethpol I'm going to assume that it stays there, since you haven't mentioned it.

647 4/8/2019 10:18:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message Yes on my map, BL is a VP space.

So, this is what happened. I have Paths of Glory version 7.2.2.1, but I used the “Historical Variant“. There is also the “WBS Historical Variant (2012)“ and “WBS Historical Variant (2013)“. Which did you use? As I look back at the instructions, it seems to me they are not very clear on which to use.

In any case, maybe you should email me your .vsav file so that I can have the correct layout.


646 4/8/2019 9:07:00 AM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message In that case you don't have the right version of the module. Unless there's been a new one since I downloaded mine, which doesn't have it. Because mine clearly shows Kovno as a VP with red edges.

BL is not a VP (not sure whether you thought it was or just confirmed it was under siege, which yes, it is).

Von Francois remains in play until the end of the turn, until I use it in a combat which is a loss or a tie.

Von Hutier on the other hand is one use only and is removed from the game.
645 4/8/2019 8:02:00 AM Winter 1917 Allies Message It appears there is a problem with the Vassel map. It correctly has the tournament scenario adjustments, eg, Jerusalem not a VP space, except for Kovno and Minsk, which are incorrect.

Oh well. Just to confirm. Remaining VP spaces in Russia are Vilma, Riga, Kiev, Odessa, and Baku (and BL under siege).
644 4/8/2019 7:25:00 AM Winter 1917 Allies Message And just to confirm. Von Francois is no longer in play.
643 4/8/2019 7:21:00 AM Winter 1917 Allies Message A VP for Kovno? On my map, Kovno is not a VP location.
642 4/7/2019 7:25:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message The fort in Kovno is also destroyed in the combat (because of the excess losses not absorbed by units).

GE8 advances into Kovno. VP=15. CP Russian VP=3. Tsar takes command allowed.

Abou the combat cards: Von Francois is +1 drm. Von Hutier is not a drm, it's just that attacker fires first and cancels trench effects. So i'd say that's 6A+1. But like you said, at this time it didn't matter. Over to you for AP2.
641 4/6/2019 9:55:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message Advance at Kovno?
640 4/6/2019 9:54:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message Should have also said BR2 flips in CT. ITc eliminated in Taranto.
639 4/6/2019 9:47:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message Sorry, that last die roll was just supposed to be a message.
