20 5/20/2019 9:16:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I think I am supposed to get a couple more 'Immobile' Arty units, per rule 37 and 37.1.
19 5/20/2019 8:42:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Hi Alex,

Looks fine this time.

I assume no attacks by the Americans right now?

I think no Air for next turn, so you do not have to worry about Air Supply, nor Interdiction yet.

Should I move on to 16 PM German turn?
18 5/19/2019 5:52:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Hi Alex,

I think 9/CCB, VIII/402 arty, Middleton and Hodges HQ may have moved too far. This turns moves are subject to the movement restrictions from Initial Surprise

15.2 Allied Movement Restrictions
On the 16AM turn, Allied units are restricted in their ability to move. Only Allied units that began the game in a German ZOC are eligible
to move their full movement allowance. Allied artillery units have a movement allowance of 1; units of the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division have a
movement allowance of 3 (due to veteran status); and other Allied non-artillery units, which did not begin the game in a German ZOC, have a
movement allowance of 2. For purposes of advancing after combat on the 16AM turn, all Allied units are considered to have their full movement
allowance. Beginning with the December 16PM turn, all Allied units may move normally.

please advise,

Thanks!

Mark
17 5/18/2019 1:42:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Hi Alex,

There were a couple of results that were too harsh on your units, and one where the battle hexes were mixed up, but overall not bad for our first battle run-through I reckon!

I put the details in the .vlog, along with my advances, bridge construction, and marking of my thoughts on out-of-supply units.

back to you sir!

The extra retreat hex did not really hurt you, as I had all infantry in the assault, and so could only advance a couple hexes in any case.

I did my advances, and then here are the other attacks.

Should be saved to DropBox.

If I am reading right, on Combat 2 (0710), it was 6-1, roll 4 -> D4. I think you read as D3.

If I am correct there is one more hex of retreat down the road which you can fix with the next set of combats (assuming I am not up in the night).

4 5/16/2019 11:43:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Hi Alex,

I found it:

31. VARIABLE SURPRISE SHIFT
NOTE: This replaces rule 15.1 in the Basic Game. For each combat
declared on the German 16AM turn involving a German mechanized
unit possessing an ER of 5, the German Player rolls the die to determine
if one shift to the right occurs on the CRT. The die roll is conducted
after the Allied player declares any supporting artillery. If the die roll is
greater than the highest ER of the defending units, then the surprise is
successful, and the German player receives the shift. If the die roll is less
than or equal to the highest ER of the defending units, then no surprise is
achieved, and no shift is received.
EXAMPLE: On 16AM, Panzer Lehr attacks the 14th Armored Cavalry.
A die roll of 5 or 6 results in a shift to the right on the CRT

Doing a quick map check for the rest of the odds to make sure we didn't miss a mod.
