297 10/26/2019 7:02:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message OK, per e-mail discussion I will set up #6.

Need you to delete #5 at your convenience, as you are listed as the "game owner."
296 10/26/2019 4:08:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message I think that declaring war on Turkey would make those VPs turn to the Axis, causing AV, btw.
295 10/26/2019 3:49:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message Up to you on continuing or not. It's "highly likely" of Axis AV, but not technically there yet.
294 10/26/2019 3:37:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message Yeah, it's a long shot at this point. I think I basically have to declare war on Turkey and play around in the rear to have hope.

We can continue if you like, and I won't complain - but the writing appears to be on the wall.

Message from Axis:
Maikop, Grozny and Baku

not at 21, but close
292 10/26/2019 3:31:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message Technically we're not 'yet' there, but will require you to retake Baku to save the Caucasus, or other offensives to keep the rear city line out of Axis hands.

1PZ advances to Baku via Grozny-Mak. 2PZ advances to Elista
291 10/26/2019 3:11:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message Looks like that's the game.
A shame that we can't see a full game of BtB due to the AV conditions for the AX player. Of course you have to go for that, but the Blitzkrieg deck is getting old :-)

I don't think I've ever turned down a drink at WBC - unless offered immediately before a POG game, lol
248 10/25/2019 9:18:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message I'll keep the same move except GEc not included - still likely 3RPs worth of losses to you.

247 10/25/2019 9:15:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message Thanks Michael, I owe you a beer at WBC.
That was sloppy and I was rushing - the well made gin and tonic next to me didn't help ;-)

Build CEN and STAL in Tula.
246 10/25/2019 9:12:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message was wondering why you'd build in a space that could be OOS, lol. no problem, make the adjustment, then I may adjust my move.
245 10/25/2019 9:07:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message Gah...I didn't realize you could put Saratov OOS for some reason. I'd be a fool to build 2 full fronts there knowing that - would you allow me to spend those 4 RPs to build the fronts elsewhere?

Understand if you won't, and no hard feelings.

I really do think that luck of the draw has a LOT to do with this one, more than a lot of CDGs I have played, and that the fate of the Allies in 1941 may depend on that. But it's still a lot of fun, even if most of the fun for me is in the TW phase. Wish I could see more of that. :-)
