837 11/5/2019 10:10:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Absolutely Brian. Just let me know when youíre ready to give it a shot. John Steidl has some excellent videos on Boardgamegeek, so be sure to check them out as it really flattens the learning curve.
836 11/4/2019 6:31:00 PM Summer 1918 Allies Message Good game, Robert, and best of luck in the rest of the tournament! I really enjoyed our game, and learned a lot.

Are you still interested in helping me learn Empire of the Sun? I just ordered a hard copy through the GMT fall sale and would like to get the rules down. We could just exchange Vassal files rather than mess around with ACTs. No worries if you need a break, though. Feel free to email me directly.
835 11/4/2019 10:30:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Hey Brian, I think Iím gonna hang it up at this point. The path to victory narrowed in the last couple of turns, and this turn has definitely hit a dead end. Thank you for the game! Along with the rules, you taught me a lot about strategy in this superlative design. Good luck in the next round, and hope we can play again some time.
834 11/2/2019 4:21:00 PM Summer 1918 Allies Message Roger that on Moldechno. Iím also good with your assignment of losses.
833 11/2/2019 1:21:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message 5/5
Flip 5th Army
CND Corps eliminated, and will tentatively flip 4th BR in Calais unless you want to flip 2nd Br in Amiens?
Are we good on Moldechno?

Tarnapol is an auto-elim, but you are right that there is an OOS issue if you advance, so no advance in either square.

787 10/27/2019 10:03:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #27: 3 / Great Retreat
All RU units attacked this turn may retreat before combat. This must be announced before flank attempts, play of combat cards, and die rolls. No combat resolution takes place. The RU unit(s) must retreat 1 space. Full strength CP units may advance. Forts and non-RU units in space are still attacked. Aborted CP attacks still counts for MO purposes.

783 10/27/2019 12:28:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Itís up to you. Unfortunately, I donít think weíll have time to play the full 20 turns and nobody is close to an automatic victory. Your target with the +1AP bid (and assuming you play Brest Litovsk) is 12VP. You could well get 2-3 more VPs in the East, but I still have 14 Points and Winter 1919 blockade for -2 VPs. So even assuming the western front remains static, youíll be 1 or 2 VPs short. If I can break through in the West and take a couple of those VP squares back, that will clinch it. Again, itís entirely up to you and Iím happy to continue playing until the moderator says we have to stop!
