143 5/10/2019 2:48:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message And you can delete this one. I accidentally listed you as the owner again!
142 5/10/2019 2:21:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message The Personal Morale Check is such a big deal in this game. It's one of the big life things I think it gives a player.

141 5/10/2019 2:20:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Heh I'm happy to pass along info from my next games.

I think I'll give things a rest until the next tournament game. This was a great time, and my work is picking up, so now's a good time to put things on the shelf for a bit.

I had so much fun playing these games with you! Thank you again for your patience with the notation in the first game and for the good times all the way through.

140 5/10/2019 1:35:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message The game at some point always comes down to one or two rolls, I think. I had two attacks to try to drive you away from Paris and seal the gap. Both failed. It is what it is.

I will be interested to follow your games in the tournament.

So we can start again or move on to BTB or I don't know what.
139 5/10/2019 1:33:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message Of course you would have!

I just figured since we were playing blitzkrieg style I would get in my licks while I could. :)


138 5/10/2019 1:33:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message Of course you would have!

I just figured since we were playing blitzkrieg style I would get in my licks while I could. :)


137 5/10/2019 1:13:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Anyways, obviously I would have used the GE units in C-T to complete the encirclement of Paris, if I could count to 4 correctly. Not sure how we want to play this.

136 5/10/2019 12:56:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message I really feel you on the ahistoricity. I lost interest in PoG for a while until they released and tuned the historical scenarios. Italy just always fell, for example.

135 5/10/2019 12:55:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message The supply rules are meant to be punitive to keep you from doing certain things, which is great, but also they're so punitive that some moves that don't entirely make sense (flying corps!) become how you get punished for failing to secure supply lines.

The Bulgaria/Turkey thing feels like an interesting what-if more than anything. You could just add a rule that you can't send BUc to the NE.

134 5/10/2019 12:54:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Ok, I'll look at the map when I get home and rework things.

133 5/10/2019 12:23:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message Really starting to lose interest in POG. Getting too ahistorical for me. Bulgarian stormtroopers teleporting all over Europe, German armies with blitzkrieg capability.
