259 9/16/2019 12:15:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message Sure. I'd love to play some more, but I understand your decision. Thanks for the game - if you'd like to play again, I'm available :-)
258 9/13/2019 5:17:00 AM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message George,
I once again would like to concede victory. I have no idea on how to turn the tide here. The Middle east will crumble fast now and we are already at low VP levels.
I really do not see the point of persevering.

257 9/11/2019 4:39:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Actually I rolled for that battle earlier - 1 for me and 4 for you. If you want to change to your results you are more than welcome :-)
Anyway - you just need to lost one level and there's no retreat.

234 9/4/2019 2:07:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message Claudio,

Delays are not a problem for me - if you need a slower paste then it's ok for me. As for the outcome - anything can happen, that's the beauty of PoG. I am glad that our game was interesting for you so far. If you only have time for that game I'd love to continue.
233 9/2/2019 7:00:00 AM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message George,
I am getting late in replaying. I have a lot of other activities right now.
I personally think you already have won the game. Do you feel there is a way for me to counter the current trend? If you think not, I would gladly concede you the victory.

In any case this game has been extremely instructive for me. I have only played 4 or 5 games and never I had considered that the CP could be defeated the way you did it.
I am currently applying this strategy in another game and it works great.
Also I started another game as CP and acted immediately to prevent this to happen.

So let me know if you want to continue;

Bye
Claudio
232 8/29/2019 4:44:00 PM Spring 1915 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.
