217 11/20/2019 6:45:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message I'll play another game with me being the Germans. As for this game, if we were playing in the tournament I would probably play another Day but it's almost useless.
216 11/19/2019 6:43:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message As you wish. You certainly got more than your share of poor dice rolls this game, but I've learned and recently had reinforced the notion that no game is beyond hope - no matter how bleak when the dice decide to intervene. My other ongoing game saw Caen fall early on the 8th - largely on the strength of one great dice roll. My opponent wanted to surrender immediately but I talked him into continuing - and one short day later I am wondering how I am going to manage to get the remaining 3 VPs to win.

Trade sides and play again?

193 11/6/2019 6:59:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message That's one of the things that makes this game so fascinating to me. Unlike a game like Afrika Korps which between equally skilled players usually comes down to a single low-odds attack die roll, BKN is filled with many dice rolls of varying importance. You can lose every roll as the Germans pre-landings, but the five landing assault rolls are the ones that matter. Although any little interdiction or bombardment rolls can make the difference later. I've had games where I can't build or blow a bridge to save my life - my record is nine failed builds of the 16/21 bridge to lose a close game. It is especially galling when your opponent is dropping bridges on the first try time after time. And who hasn't lost a game with a disastrous Trail of Tears move! I won my last email game which was hopelessly lost when my opponent rolled six 1's on eight dice bringing on his 6/10 reinforcements - allowing me to take St Lo. I am winning my current game because I took Caen with a +7 dice roll that disrupted all seven defenders. The dice can change any game - especially if you roll snake eyes on impulse 2.
192 11/6/2019 5:22:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message Playing the Germans, was a little behind until the Allies rolled weather change on impulse 6, day 7. Had 1 impulse of overcast but it made a big difference. Probably a little ahead now. FYI - Had 17 interdiction drs for the invasion, didn't get a single one - would have made a big difference if gotten a few.
191 11/5/2019 12:45:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message well, that's the point of our game. To stay sharp for the ones that count.How are you doing in the tournament so far?

Some players take playing games to seriously! It's only a game. I'm little rusty playing this game, I haven't played it that much this past few years and I forget how the game is played, especially when playing the Allies.

170 10/31/2019 10:03:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message I believe it is 4 CPs - not 3. As for bridges - since its a friendly game, I'd say go ahead but I've found that is a dangerous habit to get into. I still remember my opponent in a tournament denying a similar request - and he was correct. It really doesn't apply in this case, but there are times when knowing the result of an attack would affect whether one should attempt to repair a bridge or not. It is important to get in the habit of always obeying the SOP - build, move, demolish.

I have won (and lost) games where the position was much worse than this. In this game especially, I have some glaring weaknesses that can be exploited if you can come up with good dice in the right places.

My last email game was won long after I had given it up as hopeless ... it is amazing what a string of won dice rolls can do.
