55 10/30/2019 10:01:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Hey Michael:

I think I am going to have to prematurely end this one. Real life is speaking loud and clear again. With the next round of POG coming up and my role as a developer for an American Revolution game project, I think it is the right decision. I will let Tom know I cannot continue my game with him as well. Things will likely change in the future, but for now it is best to wipe the slate.

I want to let you know that I have thoroughly enjoyed our series. You remain an absolute pleasure to play with and your role as a gentleman in the hobby is well-earned. I look forward to future games; I certainly have you on my list as an opponent I can dial up quick.

Thanks again for the good times to date!

RB (7,0)
51 10/27/2019 8:39:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Of course I'm OK with it - you certainly have been more than generous on your end.

Probably won't get the response (if I have one) off until later tomorrow evening.

50 10/27/2019 8:29:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message I had meant for [GE17] to move to Vinnista in msg 30 back when 1PZ moved at start of turn. Obviously the space was activated for movement (and I moved it on my map) but too quick in writing the log. OK with this oversight or do you want [GE17] back in Lwow?
49 10/27/2019 7:47:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Played some on Wargameroom for the first time against a great POG player. He insists this game is imbalanced toward the ALLIES, that Blau isn't that important, that Allies should always be able to get 1-2 RP plays off on Turn 2, etc.

I told him he obviously wasn't playing good Axis players, because I can't see it. But he was insistent.
48 10/27/2019 7:45:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message I still have (GE17) in Lwow?

46 10/27/2019 1:12:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message 2nd Correction:

SUa from Sevastopol does go to Maikop
SUA in Dnep stays in Dnep
(SWm) instead moves from Nikopol to Rostov

Can't save everything and you're getting in no matter what I do. Have to break my old mindset!
45 10/27/2019 1:07:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Send the Sevastopol SUa to Perekop

33 10/26/2019 9:49:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Doesn't matter much, but did GE4 go to Zhitomir via Tarnopol or Pinsk?

For the record remember (GE16) is flipped in Kaunas.

Message from Allied:
Event + 5 OPs:

Bialystok - WES to Dvinsk via Baranovich (PZ2 in Minsk OOS)
Kaunas - (NW) to Dvinsk
Mozhaisk - RES to Orsha
Pinsk - SUa to Kiev
Tarnopol - (SWm) to Kirovograd, SUa to Uman

Your Tarnopol advice is irrelevant now that you advanced PZ1 to Lwow. But I'm happy not to give you the SF VP!
14 10/26/2019 9:12:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message not asking for a takeback - just lesson learned on how to write orders. please proceed
13 10/26/2019 8:59:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message You've been very generous, so I'd allow a take back...except I'll probably never see a result like that again, so you'll excuse me if I hold onto it :-)
12 10/26/2019 8:57:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message maybe 6th IS a charm!
11 10/26/2019 8:56:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Can't say the last time that I've seen that happen; I'm sure it's happened at least once to me, but just so long ago - maybe that's why it's a must to get to 15L. Oh well - your best chance yet for the long game already!

I sequenced the combats incorrectly; should have put all 'real' combats first, then the autokills after so that I could adjust the advances better. Could have still cut off WES with different sequencing; ah well.

4PZ will go to Insterberg
10 10/26/2019 8:43:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message Holding Kaunas is something I've never seen before - that means survival for the West Front, which may be huge.
9 10/26/2019 8:42:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message 4/3 AX win

Flip SWm
Flip GE17

(SWm) retreats to Tarnopol
(GE17) and PZ1 advance to Lwow
