210 11/10/2019 8:46:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message Bringing this back to achievable goals for this turn, given that you have chosen to go east first, I would think that an important early goal is to secure the right to play Tsar Takes Command. that means a northern push while holding Warsaw and Lodz. I think this can be done and it's a big deal.
Given you are going east, there is less pressure to attack the IT, and that's good because you aren't se up for it. I think eliminating Serbs is a secondary goal. might not get it done this turn, but it is worth whatever casualties AH takes to get it done. when you are down to a single AH army, moving it to Sofia and using BUc to take losses can be worth the extra op for activation, especially if it takes Skopje.
Lastly, don't put off forever digging in the GE in their new line. right now, it's kind of a mess. :)

have fun, and enjoy! nothing is riding on this outcome.
209 11/10/2019 8:38:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message I view the early turns as a race to get material on the map, and to get my events played so that I can have as long as possible with a lethal deck where I play ops on almost every card.
208 11/10/2019 8:37:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message I also play much attention to War Status, and try hard to move up on a single play through the deck, from Mob to LW, and then from LW to TW.
207 11/10/2019 8:36:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message I feared somewhat to give advice for this turn, because I don't think we are focused on the same things. CP is significantly disadvantaged right now for reasons that have little to do with map position and losses. It is important to keep up in two areas, which are War Status and event plays. Event plays make the deck smaller, which means less chance that you must wait a long time for a card that you must have. also, they are future tempo saved. the player that has removed events that must eventually be played will not have to lose a play later to get the event. so, it is a big deal that CP has only 6 events out of the deck while AP has 12.

204 11/10/2019 8:16:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message first a rules note that I should have mentioned earlier. you can only SR from the RB to an area that already contains a unit of the same nationality. You can order SR to move one that is already on the map to a new location and then add a second from RB, but you cannot SR from RB to an empty area.

As long as you have not lost all your interesting in tutoring, I want you to know that I am happy to wait for you for weeks, if I have to. I am an experienced gamer and generally do well, but there is something about POG which totally baffles my brain and i really value to have this tutorial. so... take your time and come back whenever. ill wait. My best regards to you.

198 9/28/2019 10:37:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Hello David!

After several days of hell in RL, I have at last been able to devote all morning to thinking about our game and I confess I am stuck and need to ask your advice.

I have a pretty good hand with lots of OPs but not very good events, so it would be ideal for taking ground offensive. However, i have 4 directions to choose from and if I choose all of them, I will make no impact anywhere. So the thing would be to concentrate on one, and, never having been past introduction of Turkey or Italy, I don't know how to think about it.

Here are the possible directions:

1. I could send both AH armies to Villach and attack Italy. I wouldn't likely make any valuable progress (as you have already pointed out) but I could maybe cause enough damage to Italy to counteract your RP play of Bulgaria.

2. I could send the AH armies south and go for early extinguishment of Serbia.

3. I could attack Russia in the north -- you have only one army there, i could quickly bring to bear all of my German forces and probably make a breakthrough

or

4. I could try to reinforce my southern Russian front against all the Russian armies there (and 2 more coming). this one I like least because it is least Napoleonic, but this game is teaching me the value of being conservative.

I am not sure how to handicap these options. Could you share with me from your feel of the game, which of these you think I should consider most important?

197 9/27/2019 1:21:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message And my card play first thing in the morning
196 9/27/2019 1:20:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message So, I will redo my SR play as follows:

1. AHc Trent > Villach
2. AHc RB > Trieste
3. GEc from Nis > Trent
4. GEc RB > Trent

(net result: 2GEc in Trent, 2AHc in Trieste, one AHc in Villach, one AHc goes back to RB)
195 9/27/2019 1:17:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Thank you, David!

I once had a really good gaming buddy from Massachusetts, his name was David, too, and he was the toughest opponent I have ever played and also about the nicest person I have ever known. Kind of like you. :)
194 9/27/2019 9:10:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message no problem, Adim. there will be stretches when I must tend to other stuff, too, and I will try to be as considerate about telling you.

I prefer David. My Dad was Dave. :)
193 9/27/2019 8:09:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message hello Dave, I'll play tonight -- in about 5h, sorry about the delay, i really enjoy this game and value your companionship

189 9/24/2019 5:52:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message Romania sets up with 2 ROc in the capital, and the others at 1/space in any Romanian area.
I played Romania for RP.
Note that if I had played Romania before bringing Italy into the war, I would not have earned IT RP. you earn RP at the instant you play a card for RP, and you only earn for countries that are in the war.
188 9/24/2019 2:23:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message hm... what is the OOB of the romanian units as Romania enters war?
187 9/24/2019 1:07:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #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.

Replacement points: A: 1, BR: 3, FR: 3, IT: 2, RU: 4

Message from Allies:
I'm playing this regardless of your play, as long as you have all the frontier areas covered. :)
186 9/24/2019 1:06:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message some thoughts on Italian front. You can make changes to your SR if you wish after considering these notions:

1) The most important frontage in Italy is between Trent and Verona. Should the Italians get a chance to take Trent it actually contracts their frontage and expands the CP frontage. Conversely, just taking Verona endangers the rest of the IT front line trenches, and will usually cause AP to retreat. I usually but 2 GEc here, looking forward to the time when I will add an AH army and play SUD so I can activate them with a single op.
2) Villach/Maggiore boundary is the least important. if IT loses Maggiore, it actually decreases their defensive frontage. I usually but a single AHc here.

170 9/23/2019 8:14:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Thanks for the object lesson. I was watching that particular hole, as it happened, but I really get into the way you do tutorials. And, yes, a lot of this game seems to be about creating a distraction for the enemy on some other front than the one you dont want him to be paying attention. :)

Another thing that I seem to be learning is that it's best to do attacks, especially MO attacks, towards the end of the turn, so that your opponent has fewer opportunities go to after any of your units which had been reduced in the attack.

167 9/23/2019 7:51:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message Good thinking, and I agree about Ostend. I wasn't so much trying to talk you out of it as making sure that you knew that rule, which is tricky. really two rules; loss priority and the fact that the BEFc is a 2LF corps. the only one in the game.
In the east, I made this move in part to demonstrate an important principle in POG, which is that you don't want to allow a hole in the line that the enemy can use to force a play. this is particularly effective as AP on the second to last move. If the CP has not already played their RP card, they can lose their RP. you did RP early in the turn, which is a good idea, especially for CP. AP has it a little easier going last before OOS is judged.
166 9/23/2019 3:02:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message RUc Oppeln is OOS. (But you expected that).

I am going to take the VP hit on MO. I really don't have the OPs this turn to both make it and advance Germans to where they can do some real work in Russia. And ultimately, I think the latter is more important.

The only time I could have done it was when I attacked Antwerp. I should have taken the 1/2 chance to reduce BEF, or else suicided a GEc. But I assumed the killing of Antwerp did it -- live and learn (thats the point of this game for me, after all). Unfamiliarity with the law is no excuse for failing to rob a bank correctly. :)

155 9/22/2019 1:02:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message OK, i understand. so basically the WBC 2013 rules only differ from the 5.7 rules by the two VP points and the prohibition for Germans and fr/br to operate in Italy until total war?
154 9/22/2019 12:34:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message it absolutely is, although you must meet the prerequite of having 3 Russian VP. you have 2 right now: Lodz and Warsaw. Here they are:
Here is the relevant section from 5.7 of the rules:
The following cards may double as OPS when played as Events: Landships, Zimmermann Telegram, Over There, Tsar Takes Command, Fall of the Tsar, and Bolshevik Revolution
153 9/22/2019 12:17:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message I am trying to dig up the WBC 2013 rules -- they said something about some cards being playable for event AND OPS... Do you have a link to those rules? And is Tsar Takes Command such a card?

I just went back to reread the rules and discovered that BEF must be the first to take a loss ***only when you are an attacker, not when you are a defender (as it seemed to me).

And therefore, you are absolutely right, I better rethink this
133 9/20/2019 1:23:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message just to make sure we are on the same page, the BEFc takes 2 hits to flip, so you will need a 5 LF to force me to lose BEF step instead of BE1 flip. you have a half chance to do this on 6A table +1.

121 9/19/2019 9:38:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message it's not so much that you need Turkey as that you can't get your real deck without bringing them in! same with the IT for the AP. These weak nations are vulnerabilities rather than assets, the IT even more than the TU.

the first thing to remember is that as soon as a third BRc arrives in Egypt, TU must garrison Beersheba or risk having Gaza put OOS.
I leave the TUc at Medina for the game. it can't go OOS, and it is holding down a VP.
I probably won't give you an easy chance at it, but in many games the CP can use an SR card later in the game, after getting a few GEc or BUc onto the NE map at 1/turn, to spring a surprise vs Basra by waiting until AP has used an SR and left Basra defended by only 1 corps.
Remember that TU is on defense until they get late war armies, with the possible exception of Basra. If the NE map is quiet, while you are pounding FR/RU, life is good.

It is a bit unlucky not to get a GE army back on turn 2, but we can also make our only luck, in this case at the cost of only a single Op by using a 2 instead of the GE9 3.

117 9/19/2019 9:26:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message Good comments, thank you.

I knew I was taking a risk when I chose to play GE10 as OPs in turn 1. It was my bad luck that I got no GE in the reshuffle; i tried to fix that by shredding BEF, but the shredding did not happen. :(

thanks for the warnings on Italy and Serbia... I never got this far in the game... any hints on what to look out with Turkey. Why do I need Turkey anyway? I was sorely tempted not to play RT for an event just to avoid having the bloody turks on the map!

sadly for RU, the fort at Prz was not destroyed. the AHc is full value and absorbs the first 2 hits out of 4. the remaining 2 are not enough to destroy the fort.
siege succeeds only on a 6.

Some thoughts on play so far:

The Germans have to get an army down on the map on turn 2. it is unfortunate to get both cards on turn 1, but it isn't that unlikely and in this case GE simply must hold one of the reinforcement cards.

I don't think GE have the troops to lengthen the front, even with little or no action from the AP, on turn 2. Territory gains will be short-lived without damaging the AP armies and without entrenchments. This is especially true with no GE reinforcement, of course, but it is true in most games. better to either bring the new army in at Breslau and start in the East or to shore up the line Brussels/Sedan/fortresses and pound the French.

There is no prep for Italy, which can come in next turn. I always leave the AHc at Villach, since CP needs something there. Something to keep an eye on; there is still time, but for instance you can't use an SR card and NOT cover Trent and Trieste, since you can't play 2 SR in a row. even a corps will stop the weak IT army. :)
