1079 9/23/2019 9:01:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Jeremy has conceded in an email to me and Tom Gregorio.

Thanks for a great experience, Jeremy!
1078 9/23/2019 6:03:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Updated VLOG with your 14 Points and my 2 Ops.
1077 9/23/2019 6:00:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #36: 2 / U-Boats Unleashed
May only be played after "H-L Take Command". Subtract 1 BR RP during the Replacement Phase of each turn and prevent play of "US Reinforcements" until "Convoy" is played.

Message from Central Powers:
T18 CP4 2 OPs

Move Essen: GE7 moves to Aachen, converting Liege
Attack Metz: GEc suicides against Nancy. 2C down to 1C for Trench-1. You can roll to see if the FRc gets nicked. MO made.
1076 9/23/2019 5:54:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message I think it's pretty rough. If I play U-Boats, you can play Convoy for a VP, but I'm not inclined to play it, because I have to play H-L to get to it, and at this point if I just play defense with RPs and stuffing the West Front, I think I'm okay.

Bummer about Over There, because you could be bringing Americans in next turn and have some fun with them, but as it stands, Over There will be next turn at the earliest (19), then there are 2 US reinforcements, but you can't play either of them until T20, so you'll only get one of them at max, and lose a VP for not getting the second one in.

I think we see it the same way. I think it's 95% to 99% to the CP at this point. I'm happy to play it out, though.


1075 9/23/2019 5:41:00 PM Summer 1918 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #40: 2 / 14 Points
May only be played after "Zimmermann Telegram". Only the Allied player may offer Peace Terms for the rest of the game. Subtract 1 VP.

Message from Allies:
T18 AP3: Event

-1VP = 15

So I have to get VPs down to 9 to win since I bid 1 to play as AP, right? If that's the case, I might conceded. Blockade will trigger again, but then I will still need to take 5 spaces on the map.

Full disclosure: I didn't draw "Over There" this turn, so I'll have at most two turns to use the Americans. I don't know that this will be possible. I might have another VP card, not sure?

What's your assessment?
1074 9/23/2019 5:31:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message I'm not sure how we are sharing vlogs. Here is my vlog of my 2 (Treaty) your 2 (MO and trenches), and my 3 (RPs), even though I didn't 'name' it with my 3.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=16GdANnpX2YzeV1ZhFUK_TundV7rTxJtV

This link should let you get to the location, and then you should be able to download the vlog and load it. If it doesn't work that way, just let me know.

Your 3 up.
1073 9/23/2019 5:29:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #31: 3 / Kemal
A TU unit defender (SN unit does not count) with a combat factor of 1 or more may fire on the Army Table. May only be used in one Combat per turn. See also 12.3.4.1.

Armistice, here we go!
1068 9/23/2019 4:45:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #45: 4 / Treaty of Brest Litovsk
May only be played after "Bolshevik Revolution". RU units may no longer attack. CP units may not attack RU units except TU units may attack on the Near East map. Both sides may still move into unoccupied spaces and may still suffer attrition, besiege forts, and resolve sieges. Also see 5.5.2.

War Status increased to 16

Message from Central Powers:
Event. The big one. Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. We can fight in the Near East, but nowhere else. No log file from me. Back to you for your 2.

Good catch, thanks, on the FR losses.
1067 9/23/2019 4:42:00 PM Summer 1918 Allies Play Strategy card as Strategic Redeployment #9: 3 / Moltke
May only be played in August or September 1914. CP Activation in Belgium or France costs 1 OPS per unit (not space) until the "Falkenhayn" card is played. All units must be activated in a space. Supersedes Sud Army and Eleventh army card effects.

Message from Allies:
T18 AP1: SR 4

1) FRc from Melun to RB (1,0)
2) FRc from Dijon to RB (2,0)
3) BRc from RB to Basra (4,0)
4) ITc from RB to Verona (3,0)

I'll send a logfile and see how we like that.
1066 9/23/2019 4:35:00 PM Summer 1918 Allies Message Map received and looks great! Why don't share this map and create a log file each time so we can "see" each other's moves? I'll start that on my next AR.

Also, I just realized that I didn't take my losses properly in entry #1060. I neglected to replace the [FR?] in Mulhouse with a FRc from the RB. So that will give me (0,0) in the box (yikes!) and 1 FRc that would have to retreat two spaces to Dijon. Do you follow?

I'll make the changes as part of my logfile. Okay, now to look at my AR1, which will likely be an SR given the absence of FRcs in the RB...

1064 9/23/2019 10:21:00 AM Summer 1918 Allies Message Haha. I'm sure! :) Vassal keeps crashing on me on this computer. I'm leaving on a business trip tomorrow so will be transferring my game to that computer anyway; could you e-mail me our game vsav file just in case I'm unable to open Vassal to make the transfer? Thanks! I should be able to pick back up later today.

I'm having a great time, and you seem like a nice guy, but I have one small favor to ask: Would you stop rolling so many 6s????!!! :) Hahaha
1059 9/23/2019 9:22:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #53: 5 / Bolshevik Revolution
May only be played if Russian Capitulation marker is in the "Bolshevik Revolution Allowed" box. No more than 1 RU RP may be spent each turn. Current and future RU MOs become “None”.

Message from Central Powers:
CP VPs in Russia were 4 at Fall of the Tsar. + Riga makes 5 and enables Bolshevik Revolution.

Event doubles as 5 Ops.

Move Dvinsk: (GE8) moves to Baranovichi; GE3 moves to Moldechno
Move Koblenz: GE2 to Strasbourg; GE4 digs
Move Nuremburg: GE10 moves to Mannheim
Move Cluj: (AHc) to Czernowitz

1050 9/23/2019 8:44:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #16: 5 / Romania
May not be played after "Fall of the Tsar". Romania joins the Allies. See also 9.5.2.5 for restrictions on play as a non-event when CP are at TW.

Message from Allies:
T17 AP6: 5 Ops

1) M Petrograd: RU10 & RU11 to Orsha; [RUc] to Polotsk, converting
2) M Chernigov: RU12 to Kiev
3) M Caucacus: RU3 & RU5 to Odessa
4) C Nancy: RU4 & RU6 vs S-burg (FRc not attacking)
5) C Mulhouse: [FR2] & [FRc] vs S-burg

I show the attack as AP5A vs CP9A. Over to you to check my attack columns and roll for it. No RPs for either of us this turn!
1049 9/23/2019 8:34:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message Thank you for your AWESOME work on the map! I think we're synced up now. I really appreciate you taking time to do that, Nels!

Now for my agonizing AR6 decision...yes, I expected you to do RPs ;)
1048 9/22/2019 9:42:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message This is kind of cool. By my calculation we could have a 40 War Status armistice. I'm going to be starting my deck again next turn, and I probably draw everything before game end. So I could reasonably play 7 more War Status:

Treaty of Brest-Litovsk (1)
H-L Take Command (2)
Hoffman (1)
U-Boats (2)
Michel (1)

That would get us to 39. You only have one more to play (Romania can't be played).

You could conceivably play Brusilov's Offensive (2), but you probably won't. The one card you might really like to play is Everyone Into Battle (1), but it could put us to 40. I've never had a whiff of the 40 WS. This is fun.

1045 9/22/2019 9:27:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message And just to refresh, we have both made our MOs (GE and IT).
1044 9/22/2019 9:27:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Remove the -1 dig marker in Essen.
1043 9/22/2019 9:26:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I had a hard dilemma for my AR6 and now I hope I've given you a tough one, too.

Map change I missed: Dubno is back in AP supply after your move to Kamenets-Podolski.

T17 CP6 1 Ops

Move Kovel: AH11 to Dubno, besieging it; AH4 and AH3 to Zhitomir.

I did not take RPs, and now you'll have to think about whether you are going to take them. It takes 1 Op per unit to attack with the Russians after Fall of the Tsar, if you are thinking of attacking Zhitomir.

I reason that if I play Treaty, I'll want a line the Russians can't cross, and Kamenets-Podolski and Zhitomir are very nice spaces for that. Plus I am putting a threat on Odessa, because if you play RPs, I can besiege it to start the next turn. Not sure I could hold it, though. I would have to check the rules about what happens to a space being besieged the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk is played.

So, it's over to you for a touch AR6 choice.
1042 9/22/2019 9:10:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message That actually eliminates the GEc. The GEc you have in Szawli should be in Riga, only now it's dead. :)

Message from Central Powers:
When I killed Riga fort, the fort should have fired back on 3C...
1040 9/22/2019 9:08:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Map updates:

I have moved 2x GEc to the RB, now (2,2), matching your map.

I think your BRc in RB (3,0) is right, because I think I forgot to take your loss in #884.

I can't trace the difference in our RUc RB, so I think you should just move 1 (RUc) from elim box to RB to make it (0,3) like mine.

AH6 is in Salonika, which is CP controlled;
Kavala OOS

GEc in Szawli should be in Riga. (Actually, I autokilled the Fort; should have fired back at that corps)

Mozyr, Slutsk, Baranovichi, and Moldechno all CP controlled

Lublin and Brest-Litovsk CP controlled

Libau (adj Szawli) CP controlled

Skopje CP controlled


1039 9/22/2019 8:25:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I think I didn't add my GEc to my RB when I took my Replacements last turn. The GE RB should be as you have it (2,2) after your latest attack at Strasbourg. Thanks for calling that out.

#949: 6 GE: GE2 full in Koblenz; GE8 full in Grodno; GE17 rebuild in Essen; rebuild 2x GEc in RB (4,2)
1038 9/22/2019 8:02:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I have the German RB at (0,2) now. I'll look for the discrepancy, but perhaps it's just in the full/half strength corps?
1037 9/22/2019 7:36:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I see the map, thanks. Missed the email.
1036 9/22/2019 7:35:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message 7/5 CP win

> Move Kamenets-Podolski: AH4, AH11, and AH2 move to Vinnitsa, Belaya Tserkov, Zhitomir, converting all 3 to CP control.

In #906 I mention that your move re-converts, but exposes OOS, and you change the move in #909.

I think CP controls Kamenets-Podolski and Vinnitsa.

In SE Russia, RU12 at Chernigov, RU4 and RU7 at Kiev, RU5 and RU3 in Caucasus, and (RUc) in Odessa.

I'll revisit the situation in south Russia later. Let's try some more action on the Western Front...

1017 9/21/2019 7:28:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I think I controlled K-P and you canceled a move to retake it. I have to check and I am afk for a couple hours.
1016 9/21/2019 7:25:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message ...oh, I and I currently have (0,2) RUc in the RB.
1015 9/21/2019 7:25:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Ah, I read right past your second attack on Salonkia, sorry. I have amended my map accordingly (no advance for you).

As far as supply, Zhitmor would only cut me OOS if you also controlled K-P, which I currently have as mine. I don't show any CP spaces in southern Russia below the Lutsk-Rovno line. Have I missed something?

And, yes, with the Salonika retreat situation, I'll have to revise those GEc moves. Sorry about that. My new 5Ops from Zimm coming soon.
1014 9/21/2019 7:06:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Also, I think after your move to Dubno, I can move from Kovel to Zhitomir and put Dubno out of supply. Do you have it that way, too?
1013 9/21/2019 7:04:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I attacked Salonika twice. You played Salonika and placed 3 FRc there. I attacked and caused 2 LF + 1 to cancel the retreat, leaving you with 1 FRc and 1 (FRc).

Then you played Greece, and I played again to attack and caused 2 more LF, taking you down to (FRc) which cannot cancel the retreat.

Message from Allies:
1010 9/21/2019 6:15:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Before I move on, though, I'm unclear about the need to retreat at Salonika. I had 3 FRc there, you did 2LF to me, so I elim 1 and the flipped one to cancel retreat. Did I miss a CC that negated my ability to do that or some other effect? Or did you think I only had 2 FRcs there?
1009 9/21/2019 6:14:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Then I will redo my move. Note to both of us: we still have MOs.
1008 9/21/2019 6:13:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Thanks, Nels. I won't read the log to see what you were planning, Scout's honor! :)
1007 9/21/2019 6:12:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Just take your last move back and redo it. No problem. Don’t forget to take the retreat at Salonika.
1006 9/21/2019 6:00:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Ah, that's right I forgot that Zimmerman doubles as Ops. Yes, I do have it, and I would have played it last AR with along with my MO so I can do a couple of other important things this turn. Oops. What's the best way to resolve that? Take the 3Op card back into my hand, play Zimm instead, then add 2 extra Ops somewhere on the board? I haven't read your move yet, just logged in and saw your most recent message. What do you suggest?
1005 9/21/2019 5:21:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message If you are holding Zimmerman, don't forget that in this scenario it doubles as ops.
1004 9/21/2019 5:19:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I think you'll definitely see the US cards. I don't have VP opportunities here, and you have I think a couple of cards that you can play for VPs.

May only be played after "H-L Take Command". Subtract 1 BR RP during the Replacement Phase of each turn and prevent play of "US Reinforcements" until "Convoy" is played.

Message from Central Powers:
You can change your GRc move still This will be my AR5 unless you attack somewhere else.

T17 CP5 2 Ops

Move Nuremburg: AH10 moves to Essen (and the dreams of the German army storming through the Alps are over, what a waste of a couple of ops)

Attack Metz: (GEc) suicides against Verdun. You can roll on the 0C column to see if it nicks the FRc.

Back to you.
1002 9/21/2019 5:09:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message AH6 advances to Salonika, leaving 2x (BUc) in Monastir.

I see your note about Riga, and have eliminated the Trench.
1001 9/21/2019 5:08:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message 2:1 CP win flips attacking (BUc) and leaves (FRc) which cannot take a loss to cancel retreat. I presume you wanted it in Florina, which would change your previous move, so you can alter that.

997 9/21/2019 4:03:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #43: 3 / USA Reinforcements (1st Army)
May only be played after "Over There". 1st Army, 2 corps.

Message from Allies:
T17 AP4: 3 Ops

1) M Larisa: GEc to Florina
2) M Athens: GEc to Florina
3) C Verona: ITc suicides vs Trent*

*MO done

This feels like the weakest 3Op move in the entire game. lol
996 9/21/2019 3:57:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Ah, I hadn't considered the "trench effects" of canceling retreat. Good catch!

This is really getting brutal now. I'm not even sure I can last long enough to bring in the Americans. But we'll keep slogging away (certainly more fun for you than for me at this point!)

Yes, I have 1FRC and 1[FRc] in Salonika

I only had a L1 trench at Riga on my map. I failed my last dig attempt there in entry #904. So no trench for you there by my records, sorry.

Okay, now for my next AR
995 9/21/2019 1:38:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Bolshevik Revolution can be played next turn (turn after Fall of the Tsar), and Treaty of Brest-Litovsk can be played any time after Bolshevik Rev.
994 9/21/2019 1:28:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message As it stands now, you could play Zimmerman this turn, then next turn play Over There, and then on any turn after that you can play US reinforcements. So a US army could enter as early as Turn 19 if you have the cards.
993 9/21/2019 1:26:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I'm real happy to be playing it out. Usually, I can't get the game to go this long, so some of the card interactions and board positions late in the game don't get enough play, so I am almost in uncharted territory here. I've probably played this deep into the game only two or three times.
992 9/21/2019 1:26:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I think the VPs are at 17 now? 16 after Fall of the Tsar, now 17 for Riga?
991 9/21/2019 1:26:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I think the VPs are at 17 now? 16 after Fall of the Tsar, now 17 for Riga?
990 9/21/2019 1:25:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Neither one of us have done our MOs (IT and GE).
989 9/21/2019 1:21:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #50: 4 / Blucher
May only be played after "H-L Take Command". Cancels all trench effects for 1 GE attack. Play prior to Attempt Flank Attack Step. A trench does not need to be present.

Message from Central Powers:
T17 CP4 4 OPs

Move Gallipoli: TUc to Strumitsa
Attack Monastir (2 Ops): AH6 and BUc attack Salonika @ 4A:2C after shift.
Attack Riga: auto elim fort on the 6 column.

+1 VP. Bolshevik Revolution allowed.

You may resolve at Salonika. I will advance AH6, if possible.
988 9/21/2019 1:11:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message You have FRc and (FRc) at Salonika, correct?

Greek entry gives me an OOS threat.

How many RUc do you have in the EB? I might have failed to put one there a while ago, because I still have (0,3) in RU RB.
987 9/21/2019 1:08:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message You're going to get your (RUc) back, but you have a 2 space retreat to Petrograd.

I will flip (GE8) and advance GE12 and GEc from Szawli to besiege Riga and convert the AP T2 to a CP T1.
986 9/21/2019 1:06:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message When the CC cancels all Trench effects, you can't cancel the retreat. This aspect of the game really favors the CP, because Royal Tank Corps only cancels *shifts* not all Trench effects, so the Germans can cancel a retreat from Royal Tank Corps.

From the FAQ:

Q. Those CC cards that say "...cancel trench effects" allow you to attack and disallow your opponent to cancel
retreat if you won a battle. Can you attempt a flank attack though? A. Yes (p6641)
985 9/21/2019 8:32:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message Okay, thanks. Then I'll flip one of the FRc to hold Salonika. Your victory is near, Nels! (I think an expert would resign at this point, but we've come this far and I'd at least like to see an American entry if possible)
984 9/21/2019 8:30:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Yes you would be oos if I advance to Salonika. I am afk for an hour or two. Will get to my next play a little later.
983 9/21/2019 8:24:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message Okay, just saw your revisions re: Basra & Salonika.

If I retreat to Kavala, will I be OOS if you move to Salonika? If so, I'll flip one of the two remaining FRcs to hold the space. If not, I'll retreat to Kavala.
982 9/21/2019 8:20:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message Zimmerman now allowed
981 9/21/2019 8:19:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #44: 3 / Greece
