420 7/20/2019 12:28:00 PM Spring 1916 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #55: 4 / Lloyd George
May not be played after MICHEL, BLUCHER, or PEACE OFFENSIVE. No BR attacks vs. Level 2 entrenched GE units may be made for the rest of this turn. The effect of this card is canceled by play of MICHEL, BLUCHER, or PEACE OFFENSIVE events. This event may mean that a BR MO cannot be fulfilled in a specific turn.

354 7/17/2019 7:51:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message I think the GE(c) I had in Liege really should have been in Brussels.

After that correction I have GE2 and GE3 only in Sedan.
353 7/17/2019 6:46:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message As often happens, your best time to play is too late for me, so I'll move tomorrow. I just want to put your attention on a possible discrepancy on our maps: in Liege I had GE 2 only, not GE 2 and GE (c), and this looks coherent with the journal. I filtered on "all entries" and "Liege", you can do the same and realize that Liege started the game with GE 1, GE 2 as usual. Then you immediately advanced GE 2 to Sedan. On entry #55 you moved GE 1 from Liege to Brussels leaving empty the space; then no more entries regarding Liege until #134, when you retreated GE 2 there. From that moment nothing else entered into Liege, nor you had any casualties there or more retreats into that space. Just for completeness, I have in the area GE 1, GE c, GE (c) in Brussels; and no other german corps in the other spaces you occupy (which are Sedan, Metz, Strasbourg)
