79 5/31/2019 4:14:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Perfect with that !
See you soon !
78 5/31/2019 3:03:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I'll leave game up for the weekend, so you can review if you like. Sedan is very key, well it was a good learning experience. No gaps in the line.

In a bit I'll roll for sides and set up a new game. CP can start, and Sun-Tues will be a break. Your Sat night I can get a few actions in then by 7:00 or so your time I'll be offline.

Our time zones will slow us down a bit but if we complete a turn in 3 days or so we can complete in 3 months even with days off. Looking forward to the game.
77 5/31/2019 2:56:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Yes you're definitely right Move than attack, this is what I've done when I moved pieces on my board, but did the opposite on ACTS... Will try to do better next time.
I will make a complete log in vassal of this for reference.
Thank you for this first experience, i've noticed too that Sedan is the key of the French front.
We can start another game, I don't care about the side and I'm OK with a full campaign
I Let you choose. I just have to add that I will be out of town for work from sunday too tuesday so don't wait for me these days.
Thanks again !
76 5/31/2019 2:41:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Unfortunately my front is destroyed. I will concede to you at this point. Nice game, I wanted to see a bit how the supply would work in this situation and not regaining Sedan did me in at this point.

Would you like to start again, switch sides or roll for sides and play out a whole campaign.

Not you had one rules error. You have to move first then attack, you were rolling the attacks and then moving. No big change but would effect a campaign.

Rules: 9.2.8 and 9.2.9 cover this action.

No Advance
44 5/30/2019 11:06:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Inflict 3 losses one of the armies in Verdun takes this loss.

GE1 has to take all the losses
Elim for 3
Corp for 2 so elim GE1 and one corp
Corp (7-1) 7 in reserve box and 1 in elim.
I think this record helps keep us with the same number of corp in reserve box.

Retreat GE3 => Liege => Brussels
Any advance?

15 5/29/2019 11:38:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message BTW ... don't worry about misclicks, this is really a training game for both PoG and ACTS.

Most actions seem to be reversible so we can go back or if a card is played by mistake we can put it back in our hand. There are a lot of subtle rules. Once two turns are completed you will be an expert in ACTS.

The tough part is moving corp to reserve box, keeping VP up to date. War status is automatic so that is easier. Just a few things I've goofed so pointing them out.
14 5/29/2019 11:34:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Your action phase now. Remember to include retreat of (FRc).
13 5/29/2019 11:33:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message 7 losses, so french 5th is flipped for 3, elim for 3 more and corp is changed to (FRc). You have to retreat 2 spaces. I'll advance GE3 koblenz and (GE1) Liege to Sedan. VP increased to 12.

Start of scenario is 11 with 1 more vp in Aachen and Sedan is controlled.

Message from Central Powers:
If you like you can do both rolls, that way we know if retreats/advance is needed and your action round can continue. At least in my other game we roll for each other.

So I have 4 losses: GE1 => (GE1) () shows units that are reduced per convention. That is 3 losses and completes my losses.

German 13 12-14 column no modifiers

You could have a retreat at that point and we can go on from there. Hopefully this is all clear. I can make mistakes so feel free to question anything you see here.
