The Germans won, 5/2. Still, the result is the same. The FR 5th Army is flipped, and retreats two spaces. I assume they retreated through Verdun to get to Chateau-Thierry.

The German 2nd & 3rd Armies advance into Sedan (+1VP). The GE 1st Army stays in Liege.

9 5/12/2019 6:25:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I'm cool with playing either scenario. Do you want to play the GMT version? Or the WBC version?
8 5/12/2019 6:24:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message But then I found the World Board Gaming Championship official POG Historical Scenario:

Setup Use Optional Rule 4.2.4: AH and Ru corps at LUTSK and STANISLAW

Trench Changes: CP addition: Trench (T1) in STRASBOURG AP addition: Trenches (T1) in VERONA, ASIAGO, MAGGIORE, and UDINE AP subtraction: Remove trench in BRUSSELS

Victory Point Space Changes Remove two CP VP spaces from Turkey (JERUSALEM and KHARPUT) Add two CP VP spaces in KOBLENZ and AACHEN Remove AP VP spaces from AHWAZ, VENICE, and MINSK Add AP VP spaces at KOVNO, SEDAN, and AMIENS

Rules Use Optional Rule 11.2.10: Trench roll modification.

RP change: CP receives 1 Ge RP each turn during TW (ie after it has drawn TW cards) if during the RP interphase it has at least three French/Belgian spaces, which include Sedan.

Use the optional eight card hand.

The CP Player must open with Guns of August as an Event.

Entrench may not be played as an Event on Turn 1.

Only Austrian and Italian armies may operate in Italy (move, attack, or advance into any space in Italy) and no German armies may end their movement (OPS or SR) in Trent, Villach or Trieste until the start of a turn at which THE AP (change from GMT rules) is at Total War

The following cards may double as OPS when played as Events: Landships, Zimmermann Telegram, Over There, Tsar Takes Command, Fall of the Tsar, Bolshevik Revolution.

If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of turn 20, add one VP for each US Army not currently on the map or in the deadpile.

If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of turn 20, subtract two VP if the Tsar has not fallen. Royal Tank Corp may be used v. clear spaces in Germany too

First turn only a British MO = French MO.

(optional) If both players agree, the expansion cards may be used.

(PBEM) If Great Retreat is in effect the AP player must decide on whether to retreat Russian units in step 2A (ie after combat is declared and before cards any cards are played or outflank is declared and resolved)

Clarifications: The Rape of Belgium card may only be played as an event if the Allied War Status is still at Mobilization -- not Limited or Total War.

Rule 9.5.2.5 concerning play of the Italian and Romanian Entry cards is in effect.

In desert spaces the defender may cancel retreat by suffering an additional step loss (note conflict between the terrain chart and rules as written).
7 5/12/2019 6:14:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I know there are a couple of Historical Variants out there. Which one did you want to play?

I found this one on the GMT website:

Set-up using the complete optional set-up.

The CP Player must open with Guns of August as an Event.

Entrench may not be played as an Event on Turn 1.

Only Austrian and Italian armies may operate in Italy (move, attack, or advance into any space in Italy) and no German armies may end their movement (OPS or SR) in Trent, Villach or Trieste until the start of a turn at which both sides are at Total War.

The following cards may double as OPS when played as Events: Landships, Zimmermann Telegram, Over There, Tsar Takes Command, Fall of the Tsar, Bolshevik Revolution.

If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of turn 20, add 1 VP for each US Army not currently on the map or in the deadpile.

If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of turn 20, subtract 2 VP if the Tsar has not fallen.

Use the optional 8 card-hand.
6 5/12/2019 6:03:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I'm back, as I was away this weekend.

Guns of August coming up!
