123 6/21/2019 12:59:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message Ok. I'm going to end this game and start another. I created a new game in Vassal.
122 6/20/2019 6:36:00 AM September 1914 Allies Message Alright, sure! A restart with the same sides is fine by me. :)
121 6/19/2019 8:04:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message I'd rather you take the victory. You earned it by capitalizing on my mistakes. Since it's so early we can restart if that's ok with you? Same sides?
120 6/19/2019 9:42:00 AM September 1914 Allies Return Strategy card to hand #11: 3 / Russian Reinforcements (9th Army, 10th Army)

Message from Allies:
Just in case, I'm gonna undo my card play.

I suppose ending the game this way is not much fun for either one of us...
119 6/19/2019 6:39:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message I haven’t looked at the map yet, I was just going by memory. I’ll take a look later today and let you know. And, yes... this is for fun! :)
118 6/19/2019 6:18:00 AM September 1914 Allies Message I totally expected you to play OPS on your last AR. Because that's all it would have taken and you can still do it if you want. After all we are doing this for fun, right?

Just activate Insterberg, move the Corps to Lodz protecting the 9th supply line and the 8th to Tannenberg. That would leave you with 1 OPS to spare for causing trouble or entrenching.

Because if I couldn't take out those two German armies then my position in the East would be okay but not great. No Russian reinforcements yet, no replacements played, so I can't pressure you with attacks this turn and in the West the French have suffered badly from the inital onslaught and are in desperate need of trenches, replacements and the tommies' help...

Up to you. You can adjust your card play or we can start over. I'm fine with both ;)
117 6/19/2019 5:44:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message For some reason I didn’t think that was possible. Careless play on my part Lol

I’m going to have to concede the game. With AH in the shape it is in and losing the 2 GE armies, it’s not worth trying to climb out of that hole. I’d be willing to start another game if you want to.

111 6/17/2019 7:02:00 AM September 1914 Allies Message I'm on my lunchbreak so I don't have the fire tables in front of me but I think it's pretty safe to assume that this kills of my Cavalry without them doing your army any harm.

Do you want to advance?

I forgot about your Cavalry. Not good for the AH.

Attack on Tarnow. 3A v. 3A
76 6/11/2019 11:06:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Alright, figured out what I'm gonna do. The Russian cavalry moved as I said and the 4th RU army attacks 1st AH army in Tarnow.
75 6/11/2019 10:30:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Ah, sorry! I was being stupid! Forgot about the turn 1 restriction for the Russians (I only remembered the restriction for the Germans).

But there's still an army I will put OOS: The second AH army in Munkacs by moving a RU cavalry corps from Tarnopol to Drebrecen. Need to check what I will do with the second OPS point then. I'll do that when I'm back home...
74 6/11/2019 2:24:00 AM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #56: 2 / Paris Taxis
Allied player receives 1 extra RP to immediately flip a reduced French Army in or adjacent to Paris to its full strength side. The RP may not be spent to replace an eliminated unit.

Message from Allies:
Alright... I said I would give you the chance to take back your moves when I'm up to something nasty.

So, I'd besiege Königsberg and encircle Insterberg now, eliminating that corps and permanently eliminating the 8th GE army.

Do you want to reconsider?
73 6/11/2019 12:30:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message CP6

Playing a 1 Ops action to move the GE6 into Nancy.

Back to you!
72 6/10/2019 2:05:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Sweet! :)

Sorry, should have mentioned it before what I did exactly. No card play but a 1 OPS to activate Nancy and leave that looming death trap waiting to snap shut.
71 6/10/2019 1:44:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Figured it out!

64 6/10/2019 4:26:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Needed to give up Nancy if I don't want to lose my French Armies. Only problem is that undoing the Play of Rape of Belgium didn't reset the War Status. Is there any way to fix that?
63 6/10/2019 4:20:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Just realized that I can't do that...

I'm assuming you don't have any CC to use since you likely would have already. Also, your corps have a far shot at causing a loss in Verdun.
I'll roll for both now.
55 6/9/2019 2:31:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Oh, and you need to take your single step loss for the attack on Verdun
54 6/9/2019 2:28:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Just checked and these guys do not count as reinforcement so the event is playable in turn 1.

One AH unit and up to 2 GE corps may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. A different stack may be chosen each Action Round. If a second AH unit or a second non-GE corps unit is present, then the activation cost is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.

I will use some shorthand to show what spaces I am activating. M for move, and A for attack. Pretty simple.

A Sarajevo AH6 attack Valjevo 2A v. 3A (1L mountain)
