507 5/27/2019 4:51:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message As a second thought: better to stop here. It's mostly unuseful to throw more time and mental resources into a game that has been heavily affected by my lapse of memory that occurred about the rule of replacements related to Neutreal Entry, actually the umpteenth painful IT MO has helped me to take a decision that could have be already taken a couple of weeks ago. I spent first 4-5 turns trying to re-familiarize with game mechanics, almost loosing Italy in the process... still, if only that single attack to Costantinople had gone the "statistically most likely way" we had got a completely different story. Or with a more balanced outcome of combats at Bologna, or even with a couple of IT MOs left to be fulfilled... anyhow, all that is academy, as a world famous volley coach told once, "winners celebrate, loosers explain". Many thx indeed for the game, wishing you all the best for the rest of the tourny. Please refer to Tom Gregorio.

494 5/26/2019 10:10:00 AM Spring 1916 Allies Message As for our "on line appointment". Unfortunately today I have something else to do, as often happens on Sunday. As for monday - tomorrow - as usual I am at work until 5.30 pm (Milan time), then let me say 30 - 45 minutes to get home... so far we can arrange between 6.30 and 8.00 pm, then I suggest a stop (dinner time ;-) ) and to take it back from 9 pm to midnight... which would mean your 6 pm. Sounds good? In such a way we could play, may be a couple of complete turns or more. Then another slot of time I could have on Thursday... let me know!
