Reinforcement segment - nothing

OK, lots of combats and a shedload of die rolls and e-mails coming up....

13 6/10/2019 11:05:00 AM Turn 1 Entente Message House rules so far:

#1. Entente does not take Cav losses in the pre-game setup

#2. All river hexes are treated the same despite different thicknesses

#3. At the start of the movement phase, a unit out of command integrity MUST move so as to return to command integrity. If it cannot (due to ZOCs) it is disrupted.

11 6/10/2019 12:41:00 AM Turn 1 Central Powers Message Your house rules/responses for #s 1, 2 and 3 look good to me.
My move in just a minute - before I run any combats, I'll let you look at my move to see if it's kosher or not
10 6/9/2019 8:54:00 PM Turn 1 Entente Message #3. is there any penalty if Corps Command Integrity (4.5) isn't maintained?

I wondered about this one - what about a house rule that units are disrupted? And, I guess I'm thinking during the movement phase if they CAN get back into command they have to - but if (because of ZOCs) they cannot move back into command integrity they become Disrupted.
9 6/9/2019 8:33:00 PM Turn 1 Entente Message > 3706 6-2-4, 1-2-4
> 4006 6-2-4, 1-2-4

Good catch!

Let's place them in:
2806 1-2-4
3005 1-2-4

Let's number our questions/house rules so we get things straight:

#1. Entente does not take Cav losses in the pre-game setup

#2. All river hexes are treated the same despite different thicknesses

Did I miss any?

* I don't think you can start the CAV in these 2 hexes?
Sorry, I think I'm going to have to wait and see where you put these CAV before I decide what to do with my move.

Btw, why would you print a couple of dozen markers with "Disrupted" on both sides? Why wouldn't you have "Out of Supply" on the back side of the counters? Or come to think of it, why wouldn't you use some of the many blank counters and print them as OOS markers?

7 6/9/2019 7:27:00 PM Turn 1 Central Powers Message * some of the set-up zones are bloody hard to see (the ones in the woods)
* are all rivers the same? It seems like there are some big rivers (e.g. 2709/2710) and then others that are decidedly smaller (e.g. 3009/3010). Do all rivers have the same move and combat effects? (I assume that they do)

6 6/9/2019 7:00:00 PM Turn 1 Central Powers Message 3706 6-2-4, 1-2-4
4006 6-2-4, 1-2-4

* I don't think you can start the CAV in these 2 hexes? The Deployment zones for FR I and X Corps both have a little box with "No Cav" written on them. I assume this means that the CAV can't start in those deployment zones, but that it'll be OK to move CAV into these areas once the game starts.

5 6/9/2019 6:43:00 PM Turn 1 Central Powers Message I just noticed how many replacement points (RPs) each side gets - compared to the # of units that each side has, it seems like the # of RPs is enormous, and very variable. Entente get 7-19 RPs per turn (5/6 chance of getting 10-19 RPs), while the CP only have 16 INF divisions to start with - it seems very likely that in most turns, the Entente is going to have net positive steps (i.e. RPs minus step losses).
4 6/9/2019 6:26:00 PM Turn 1 Central Powers Message OK, I'm setting things up now.

>>> Ok - I'm getting the Entente set up. I assume we'll use the historical pre-game losses for the Entente (dr=3).
- I assume Cav units aren't included in allocating the losses "as evenly as possible" since they appear separately in the OOB. <<<

* both of those sound reasonable.
... and of course, I can't help myself.....
* I dunno about you, but I'm not especially impressed by the graphics on the counters. And using black text on a dark grey or dark blue background? Not a good choice
* is there any penalty if Corps Command Integrity (4.5) isn't maintained?
* why would you put a unit in Paris? The Paris Garrison will probably have a higher DF than a unit(s) in a Paris hex.

OK, no more whining, and back to setting up the game...

3 6/9/2019 12:03:00 PM Turn 1 Entente Message Ok - I'm getting the Entente set up. I assume we'll use the historical pre-game losses for the Entente (dr=3).

Notes:
- I assume Cav units aren't included in allocating the losses "as evenly as possible" since they appear separately in the OOB.

-I'll note flipped units by simply their strength numbers (8-4-4, etc.)

Army boundaries
6th/BEF = 1616
BEF/5th = 2717

I think that does it. There are a little more units than we’re used to - but at least there is limited stacking, so hopefully we won’t get things too screwed up.
2 6/9/2019 9:55:00 AM Turn 1 Entente Message Ok let's give this a go! I'll set things up this morning. I'm off to Pittsburgh for a short trip Mon-Weds.
