443 5/23/2019 6:17:00 AM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message I've spent my fair share of time reading through Consimworld and BGG to learn some of the basic strategy. I'm glad it's reflected in my play!

It's interesting to me that you consider attacking AH early with the Russians to be unnecessary-- as far as I can tell, there's a pretty significant component of people that believe differently. A drive through the Carpathians toward Budapest is certainly not challenging if the Russians put their mind to it, but I've lost as AP after getting to the gates of Budapest, so you might have the right idea.

I'd be happy to swap sides for another game. I'd enjoy seeing your take on CP.
442 5/22/2019 9:20:00 PM Summer 1916 Allies Message No doubt my hand was very very strong 5-5-4-4-3-2-2-2 with 2CC's that really helped. The dice were kind to me giving me the 6-1 roll when I was a decided underdog.

I was thinking for some time that your western front was a little short on troops and was wondering when to make the move to go full frontal assault.

You did a really nice job in Italy, even though I delayed bringing them in as I had too because Italy needed the French back up. I was able to reinforce Italy with French troops because the AP held Sedan. The opening sequence of the die rolls allowed me to keep Sedan, which I was going to make sure I did,regardless of the cost. Sedan is the "KEY" in the west. It opens up opportunity for whomever holds it. The CP controlling Sedan forces the AP to cover more spaces,usually 5, and spread the units around making reinforcement of Italy much more difficult. You did a nice job dispatching the Serbs.

Galacia was quite....... Russia was concentrating on Germans to stress the RPS and not waste OPS on walking dead Austro-Hungarians who will eventually vanish like a fart in the wind under heavy pressure. Deal with Germans first and AH only when it is a must.

You had my attention in the Near East and did a super job of propping up the Turks for the offensive and making it more than difficult for the AP to make any heyday in the sand.

For no more games than you have played you have played very well !

Would you like to keep the same sides or switch it up for the next one ?
441 5/22/2019 8:18:00 PM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message Wow, you had a hell of a hand there!

I instead got dealt 4 2-ops and 3 3-ops...

I'm going to go ahed and concede to the inevitable after you've succeeded with the trench roll in Strasbourg. No way to save my troops in Metz anymore, and I'm not going to survive the loss of those two armies, notwithstanding the state of play on the Western Front.

Thanks for the game! I greatly enjoyed it, and appreciated the pace we played with. It was my first game as CP against an experienced opponent, and I definitely learned some lessons, including some the hard way.

Well played :)
