I usually try to go to Limited War on turn 2, but decided to wait to try and get out all the Mobilization reinforcements and get good replacements without you getting any. Should be interesting! There's a 25% chance I won't get Falkenhayn back, and that would be bad.

Therefore, I only took 5 losses.
Flip GE3 for the loss, then eliminate it and replace with GEC to cancel retreat.
You just need to flip one unit of your choice, and we're back on track.
I will keep my CP6 play, so flip your unit and then back to you for AP6.

I'm playing one of the original play testers, and so far I have a slight lead as the Soviets as we approach the end of turn 6. Looks like it'll be close and will probably depend on which scoring cards show up after the reshuffle. Asia bad!
You really confused me for a while saying that BR4 was in London. I finally realized you meant BR1 and everything is good.
I'm making a potentially disastrous decision with my card management - we'll see if it works out!
