815 10/23/2019 11:20:00 AM Winter 1918 Moderator Message “I still don’t know how 6 more VP locations affects the VP situation.”

Richard - when Italy joins, there is no immediate change to current VPs. All those locations are Allied with the entry, similar to Turkey or Bulgarian VPs start CP once they enter.

As to finding more games, you can always look on ACTS in the “opponents wanted” list to find people potentially willing to play. Also, tournament opponents are alternative source of players ( those who have lost two games and interested in playing more before next tournament).
814 10/5/2019 10:03:00 PM Winter 1918 Allies Message Looking back through my vassal saves, it appears you won on turn 14. Thank you for your patience and camaraderie. I need to get more play throughs. Can you recommend a good way to pick up games? Good luck in the rest of the tournament.
813 10/5/2019 9:48:00 PM Winter 1918 Allies Message Since I didn’t get the card until winter 1917, I don’t see how you can receive victory points beginning in 1915. Furthermore, would not the 6 VP in Italy be to my credit? And you are welcome.
812 10/5/2019 9:35:00 PM Winter 1918 Central Powers Message I guess we had a little extra fun! Thanks for playing.
811 10/5/2019 9:33:00 PM Winter 1918 Central Powers Message Ooops.. I've never gotten this far - we were supposed to add 1 VP every turn Italy was not in the war after you entered total war. That happened in Fall of 1915! So by my calculations I won in Winter 1917!
810 10/5/2019 9:04:00 PM Winter 1918 Allies Message Upon reading the Italy card again and reviewing history, you get 3 VP points, or is it 4? I am bewildered.
809 10/5/2019 8:49:00 PM Winter 1918 Allies Message Clarification: I show GE c in Trieste and Augsburg
808 10/5/2019 8:45:00 PM Winter 1918 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #17: 5 / Italy
Italy joins the Allies. Add 1 VP during the War Status Phase of each turn if unplayed after the Allied War Commitment Level is Total War. See also 9.5.2.5 for restrictions on play as a non-event when CP are at TW.

War Status increased to 17

I was beginning to think that this card would never come up again.
I’ve searched the rules, half the bgg forums, and the internet, and I still don’t know how 6 more VP locations affects the VP situation. More low hanging fruit?

If any FR units not stacked with US units attack on a FR Mutiny turn, add 1 VP for the turn (not for each attack). FR Mutiny does not apply to attacks outside of FR, BE, GE.

799 10/5/2019 10:32:00 AM Winter 1918 Allies Message AP AR1 conclusions

First, my apologies for missing 11.1.6.
Yes, move RU8 to Dubno. Thanks for the suggestion. I should have moved the 3 & 8 there in the first place, but for my silly play.

After looking at the map for a half hour, I see no advantage to advancing other than temporarily grabbing back the Lemberg VP; therefore, the RU 6, 7, + (10) remain in Lutsk and RU 9 remains in Rovno.

Anticlimactic isn’t it.

733 9/27/2019 4:31:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message #49 - yes, I can play it without a trench being present

#39 - I interpret it to mean until you lose a combat, so its goes in the discard pile.. if I did not win then you would keep it face up until the end of the turn..or if it was utilized after a loss
732 9/27/2019 4:27:00 PM Fall 1917 Allies Message Since I prepared this, I will throw it out, especially because I find the last sentence on card #39 ro be unclear.

Your CC card (#49) canceled trench effects: “Cancels all trench effects for 1 GE attack and adds a +1 drm for that attack,” which is how the battle was played.

My CC card (#39) canceled retreat effects under certain conditions: “Cancels any retreat for losing a combat if defending in a non-destroyed FR fort space. A FR unit must be present in the space.” Both conditions are met at Nancy. Therefore, I interpret this to mean AP does not retreat.

However, I am uncertain about the meaning of the last sentence on each card.
#49 “A trench does not need to be present.” I assume the card may be used for its +1 DRM where no trench is involved.
#39 “Card remains face up until a combat is lost or until end of turn.“ Does that mean until the CP loses a combat?
731 9/27/2019 4:08:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message oh wow did not see your card play.. well done.. I guess no retreat then
730 9/27/2019 4:04:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message Yes its in the official FAQs.. you must retreat.. assuming its a clear terrain space.. not next to my computer.. fort doesn't help for retreats
729 9/27/2019 3:54:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message Flip GE10.. my thought is that CC negates your ability to ignore retreat due to trench.. is that what you understand it to be? Maybe we should check FAQ
