278 5/21/2019 3:50:00 AM Turn 17 Coalition Message I think I own this ACTS game thread. I'll delete it tomorrow.
277 5/19/2019 2:55:00 PM Turn 17 Coalition Message The HQ cards are in the Vassal module.
276 5/19/2019 12:47:00 PM Turn 17 Coalition Message Wellington is good. You'd need to scan or tell me what is on one of the French set-up cards. I'd have to look to see which. Short version: have played with other person's copy, got my own, one item missing, contacted GMT, they sent the one that wasn't missing, I put game away...

The game is under Custom Modules here. I'd need a week to get my copy down from the loft and read the rules (the former is easy, the latter takes time). I have CDG rules overflow. They are all the same but subtly different. Thankfully searchable PDFs make life easier.

Don't give up on 30YW. It's WTP with two big British sides (so no intercepts/withdrawals). Getting your head around the province control rules and what they let you do is the challenge. If you make it into the later game with leaders dying on you and pillage / revolts everywhere it is a chaotic challenge.

So Wellington?
275 5/18/2019 1:30:00 AM Turn 17 Prussian-Allied Message I don't have most of those games I don't think. Are any of them the old SPI games? I have Thirty Years War but didn't really like the game.
Do you have War and Peace? Wellington?, Guns of August? 1776? Colonial? Anzio? Empire of the Sun? Shifting Sands? or even one of the Civil War series like Stonewall in the Valley?
274 5/16/2019 2:29:00 AM Turn 17 Coalition Message Other games:

I'm happy to have another game in parallel. What I enjoyed about FTG was bringing out something from long ago, giving it a tweak and finding it played pretty well with little overhead. So long as you don't mind (probably) winning and are OK with me just advancing one game when in a hurry, I'm fine with starting something else. There needs to be a Vassal or Cyberboard module as I don't keep things set up. Here are some ideas off the top of my head.

Module here and I have never played it online: 1989 Dawn of Freedom.

Module here and I'd play again: Thirty Years War.

Can't see anything ACTS, which is a pity as it would be worth trying: Unhappy King Charles.

I've played via ACTS using it to resolve chits and dice: Clash of Giants. Bob and I played Ypres. Tannenberg would work. Marne would too. I haven't played Galicia.

Similar to Frederick the Great: Campaigns of Marlborough. It was in the Wargamer. Great map art. I'm not sure from memory that the hexes were numbered.

In a similar mindset / era to the above: Nine Years or No Peace Without Spain from Compass. I have the former and the latter just charged. I don't see a module but it would not be hard to make one. The events could be handled by dice (each player draws one event per turn) and the ops are generic 1, 2, 3s so those would be easy to create a module for.


273 5/16/2019 2:02:00 AM Turn 17 Coalition Message These have been fun. Again not a lot of battles, but this time I had a couple of 'might as well' moments. It's a pity the combat table doesn't have more variation in it.


272 5/15/2019 2:13:00 PM Turn 17 Prussian-Allied Message Final talley of points:
France has 55 points in fortresses
Empire has 5
Sweden has 5
Russia has 5
Austria has 15
Total of 85 points + 15 points for lost Prussian/Hannover troops for a total of 100 (on my board I show 18 Prussian/Allied losses instead of 15 which would give 3 x 2 more points for a total of 106).

Prussia has 100 points in fortresses (counting Magdeburg and Dresden).
Hannover has 15 points.
Total of 115 points in fortresses + 14 coalition lost SPs + 10 Coalition prisoners for a total of 139 (on my board I show 16 coalition loss factors for a total of 141). Either way this gives more than a 25 net victory point difference for a Decisive Victory for the Prussian-Allied side.
IF Dresden had not fallen the total would have been 114 to 129 (losing 2 more Prussians for winter attrition) by my our counters (or 120 to 131 by my board) for a 15 (or 11) net victory point total for a Marginal victory.
As it was, Dresden was worth the extra attrition for the chance at the 20 point swing in net points.
Good game. I thought I had lost it when France was advancing and the Austrians were taking Dresden and Torgau but some battles turned the tide and being about to destroy an important Russian depot kept them from taking Colberg and more. I had to keep out of way of the total Russian force but still threaten their supply and it was tricky with only 10 SPs. I couldn't build a depot and then garrison it and keep advancing. The French decision to attack was a real boon because I knew with these crazy combat tables that I couldn't lose even though I was outnumbered. You were unlucky in not getting rid of the demoralization markers. Overall, an exciting and interesting study on the period. Do you want to replay one of these now that we are familiar with the rules or move onto something else or just concentrate on Mr. Madison's War. I really appreciate your play, your expertise and sportsmanship.
271 5/15/2019 1:36:00 PM Turn 17 Prussian-Allied Message According to rule 11.13 a demoralized unit (leader or combat) is considered to have a "zero" Initiative Value for all movement, combat and supply purposes. A demoralized Leader retains his actual (printed) Initiative Value for Morale Recovery purposes only (see 11.2). Thus, the 4 siege roll against Dresden will result in a breach. I will grant the honors of war and those leaders and forces will go to the nearest fortress which is Torgau and my forces at Dresden 1623 will enter the fortress for the winter. This will end the game as there are no units outside winter quarters.

It's a strange CRT. There's a tendency to hold off from fighting because a loss puts an army out of action for so long (and possibly the scenario), but also because the results are frustratingly arranged.

Message from Prussian-Allied:
This was a high roll for the attacker but not a win with this crazy combat results table. 6 roll modified to a 5 gives a 10L result for the attackers and 25 result for the defenders. 10% with 38 SPs results in 4 loss factors and one leader lost (probably eliminate the 4 Austrians and their L6). Hannover with 25% of 15 factors gives a loss of 3 SPs and they drop from 15 to 12 SPs. 4 loss factors + the Hannover L2 initiative of 2 gives a 6 vs 3 loss factors and the French L3 initiative of 1 gives a 4 which is 2 factors in Hannover's favor. So 2 French SPs are captured and a demoralization counter goes on the French force.
This roll is for the retreat roll for the Coalition force under L3. This is the same result given this "6" roll if I had attacked except I would have lost a leader instead of you.
I will be away from the game until probably Friday or Saturday but you can go ahead and do your part of the Coalition turn.

193 4/25/2019 12:49:00 PM Turn 12 Coalition Message Done it again. That's the final phases of the Churchill game...
192 4/25/2019 12:48:00 PM Turn 12 Coalition Message Axis Reserves: Pacific condition 2 quires 2 armies to face the Soviet advance so they go into Jehol China.

The other Japanese reserve army goes to Okinawa (Cenral Pacific) as that is the priority B29 space.

It's life. Don't worry. I'll work through this later and try to post in the correct game feed.
190 4/25/2019 10:51:00 AM Turn 12 Prussian-Allied Message Almost forgot. Also start a depot at Prague 1125.
Another bad march roll.
L1 1024 takes the 2 SPs and moves to 1125.
L2 stays at 1227
L3 2425 takes L7 and 10 SPs to 2526

Hannover:
L2 2310 takes 3 SPs out of Minden 2310 leaving L3 and 2 SPs inside and 15 SPs, L2 and L4 outside.
Your turn for forced marches.

I apologize for the delay but we had a good time visiting the kids and grandkids.

Turn 12:
Depot creation started at 1227
This roll is for the march phase for the Prussian-Allied forces for turn 12.
188 4/25/2019 10:39:00 AM Turn 11 Prussian-Allied End Turn
187 4/25/2019 10:39:00 AM Turn 11 Prussian-Allied Message Hannover did not get lucky at Minden on that attack. The 2 roll modified to a 3 roll resulted in a 25 to 5 result. French lose 2 SPs (you could choose the Austrians if you want) and drop to 38 total. Hannover loses 3 SPs and drop to 12 SPs. Because of L2's higher initiative this is a draw result. No leader casualties.
No other combats possible and I don't see any sieges for you at this time. No Prussian-Allied attrition so we go to turn 12.

Message from Prussian-Allied:
That was the Prussian force marches. Next we move to the combat phase and I will initiate combat for Hannover at Minden 2310. Since my Hannover L2 is a higher initiative he has first choice. At Minden 2310 L3 and 5 SPs will stay inside the fortress. That leaves L2, L4 and 15 SPs outside to battle the French and Austrian horde of 40 SPs (34 French and 6 Austrian) under the French L3. This makes the battle at 37.5% which is under the 1st column. Hannover L2 has a 2 attack vs the French L3 who has a 1 defense so there is a +1 to the die roll.
It looks like I would need a 5 or 6 to pull this off.
Hannover attack on the French at Minden:
185 4/25/2019 10:13:00 AM Turn 11 Prussian-Allied Edit SPs Eliminated Coalition: from 6 to 6
Prussian-Allied: from 8 to 9
184 4/25/2019 10:13:00 AM Turn 11 Prussian-Allied Message L2 1028 gets a 2 + his 1 initiative and takes all 11 SPs and L4 and moves to 1227
L3 2125 gets a 3 + his 1 initiative and takes all 10 SPs and L7 and moves to 2425
L6 1024 loses 1 to force marching and takes 10 SPs and moves to 1125 Prague. This leaves L1 with only 2 SPs at 1024.

182 4/16/2019 1:44:00 AM Turn 11 Coalition Message As part of losing the plot in this game, I had forgotten tyo save the last move and had to re-do it on Vassal.
181 4/16/2019 1:43:00 AM Turn 11 Coalition Message True. Depots are neutral so it stays. Good spot on Torgau. Please start that depot. Back to your FM.
180 4/15/2019 9:03:00 AM Turn 11 Prussian-Allied Message I don't think you can destroy the depot at 1423 because you don't control it. 10.47 says that a player may voluntarily destroy any depot units he controls. But 10.13 says fortresses and depot units are neutral. The status of a depot unit is determined by the nationality of the unit stacked immediately on top of the depot unit.
Also, I did not see where you started a depot at 1821 Torgau in the log. You might want to start that depot during your phase.
I will be away from the game starting Wednesday morning for about 8 days.
