205 11/27/2019 5:27:00 PM Turn 16 Entente Message OK, it looks like the die roller has decided that you'll be Japan in the upcoming MMP WWII Pacific game.
(just let me know if you'd prefer to be Allies)
I'll set-up a custom module in the next day or so.
Lisa's brother leaves town on friday morning, so I should be ready to go on friday evening, or certainly by the weekend.
Happy Thanksgiving!

203 11/20/2019 2:01:00 AM Turn 16 Central Powers Message Nicely done! That's amazing to win without either the Russians or the Americans!

Well done. What's next?
202 11/20/2019 1:03:00 AM Turn 16 Entente Message As best as I can tell, I thought you played that pretty well. Running out of GE cards really hurt, but again, I'm not sure I understand how that happened.

As for the TE, the Girls with Yellow Hands and Commonwealth Support cards are REALLY powerful cards, allowing for unlimited recycling of a UK Build Army and a UK Land Battle card, but I think you used those in previous QG games.

The only thing I can see that I did a little better in this game is that I pretty much took advantage of using the whole US/UK deck (I think in previous games you still had quite a few US/UK cards remaining at the end of the game?) Mind you, I'm not quite sure how using all of the US/UK deck helped me so much - maybe it helped me with "efficiency of use" of the good UK cards?

201 11/20/2019 12:51:00 AM Turn 16 Entente Message >>> Play Event Imperial Austrian Landwehr

I don't think you can do that - I still have an RU army in Galicia

anyway, moving on, the moment I've been waiting for for nearly the whole game....

2. play IT event Bersaglieri

2. Build UK army in Istanbul

3. yes, play prepped UK status card Dreadnaughts for x1 GE attrition = -1 CP VP

and with that, I think we can stick a fork in this one, it's done.

I have no idea how I won this one - just as well I didn't quit when the GE took Moscow

190 11/19/2019 11:13:00 PM Turn 15 Entente Message So for the x1 GE attrition I laid on you in the UK turn, did you discard your last GE card? You have the option of not discarding your last card, but taking a 1VP hit instead, if you want?

>>> Play Status k.u.k. Kriegsmarine

* Looks to me that W Med and Black Sea are not connected. Looks like that AH Navy is turning out to be a nice little earner for you!

Anyway, RU is out of cards, so can't do nuthin'.

If you didn't discard your last GE card but took a VP loss instead, it's over to GE. If you did discard your last GE card then FR/IT is up - please let me know.

167 11/18/2019 11:30:00 AM Turn 13 Entente Message A couple of things:
* for your battle vs. Poland in GE12, I should've discarded a RU prepped card (Mustard Gas status card). Will do in RU turn13.
* for the AH Franz Ferdinand card, I think you might need to discard another card for battling into difficult terrain? I think you need to discard a card first to "activate" the card, and then you battle into Serbia. As Serbia is difficult terrain, you need to discard another card for that battle (at least, I think so). Note that there are some cards that expressly say to battle into difficult terrain but to ignore the difficult terrain extra card cost.
* I have a BR army in serbia, so I get the chance to play a reinforce card. However, to speed things along, I won't play a reinforce card, so the AH wins th battle and then builds an AH army in serbia

I have a US card prepped with a black attrition symbol at the bottom of the card.
Can I use this card in the attrition step to attrition 1 GE card, for a BR army next to a GE army?
Or to use it like this, do I need a US army next to a GE army?

* whaddya mean, "Not sure why I'm doing this"? I know why you're doing it - you're doing it coz it's a good card and it puts the hurt on me!

OK, I've kept up with attrition discards for FR/IT and US/UK from this turn

FR/IT
1. no
2. FR Econ Warfare - Armee dAfrique
GE x3 attrition
3. yes, FR event RO advance in transylvania
GE x1 attrition
4. yes, now 6
5. draw 4 cards
Incidentally, only 6 cards now left in FR/IT deck. this was another reason I don't think I was ever going to win this game (even if you hadn't taken Moscow) - early in the game I felt like I was having to burn a lot of cards (for FR/IT especially) in order to draft armies, in order to keep up with the CP. I don't think you've ever had to draft any armies, and it looks like both GE and OT/AH aren't going to have any card deck problems at all.

US/UK
1. no
2. UK status - Commonwealth support
3. yes, UK event Passchemdaele
GE x2 attrition
4. unprepared 1 card, now 4
5. draw 3 cards

118 11/12/2019 10:43:00 AM Turn 8 Central Powers Message I'l play the GE prepared card Event Hindenberg Line - double defense
117 11/11/2019 9:49:00 PM Turn 8 Entente Message >>> Do I get to play that double sustain again this turn?

* yes, I think you do, and I think it will win you the battle, even though I have a prepped single reinforce defense card remaining.
Here's my thinking as to why I think you win - after you initiate a battle, I have to play enough reinforce/defense thingies to be ahead in the count. After I play a reinforce/defense, you need to play enough sustain/attack thingies to match what I've played.
So after you initiated battle, I played kerensky for 2 reinforce/defense. You then matched it by playing stosstruppen for 2 sustain/attack (and then retrieved the stosstruppen card with big bertha). I then played a build army for 1 reinforce defense. You the played stosstruppen a 2nd time for 2 more sustain/ attack, i.e. you're at a net +1 in the attack vs. defense battle, so I'd need to play 2 reinforce/defense to get back ahead p but I only have a build army prepped for 1 reinforce/defense - so I think you win, and get to build an army in Moscow!

*groan*
that's what I was worried about last turn - that Place in the Sun card is the only GE card that could win and build an army in Moscow in a single card play, and it's a disaster for the Entente! There's no way that I can ever evict that GE army in Moscow, so RU units will be unsupplied for the rest of the game, i.e. they can't build armies, battle, or reinforce/defend (most) battles.

Russia can continue to do some stuff (mostly play Economic Warfare cards, recruit armies, and play some cards for VPs), but I'm tempted to resign, as it's one thing to lose either Italy or the Ottomans, but it's quite another to lose Russia (although quite historical!)

What do you think? Should I resign, or maybe we can another couple of turns to see if it does indeed go all pear-shaped real-quick for the Entente?

116 11/11/2019 9:31:00 PM Turn 8 Central Powers Message Thanks for letting me re-do this. I will indeed discard 2 cards - I'll disclose them to partially pay for you helping me:
- Event - Jutland (won't need that!)
- Status - Rumpler Taube Air Recon

Both cards were in my hand before the card draw phase. Do I get to play that double sustain again this turn?
115 11/11/2019 9:24:00 PM Turn 8 Central Powers Message Ack. That's the problem with having a delay in between turns. I forget what's happening!!! Let me check on this!
114 11/11/2019 9:17:00 PM Turn 8 Entente Message I just realized - in that attack vs. Moscow, you could've played your Big Bertha Railway Guns status card to re-use your Stosstruppen double sustain battle card. Did you forget about Big Bertha, or did you just decide against it as it would've cost you 2 discards?

111 11/11/2019 9:01:00 PM Turn 8 Entente Message >>> Bummer - no more attacks for me

* thank goodness for that! If you'd have won that battle, it would've been game over.
Did you have that event card last turn? I just prepped that Kerensky double defense card last turn - without it, I would've lost the battle (and the game)

110 11/11/2019 7:53:00 PM Turn 8 Central Powers Message Bummer - no more attacks for me. To finish the turn:

3. Attrition:
