60 12/5/2019 9:51:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message No worries, I had spiders running through my brain and I thought Eots was also waiting on you. anyway, yes, we can playout another turn if you want, but losing the armies OOS is a huge pain. The AH are kind of thin on the ground anyway and usually end up backpeddling until the CP can spare a GE army or two to head over. Typically they will evaporate before a GE assault due to the difference in LF. If you want to try a rematch later too, when you are not overstretched, that's fine too
59 12/1/2019 5:52:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message sorry for the long delay, was very busy with the holidays and on top of that had some computer issues.
if you think the position is untenable I am fine to call the game here, I am a little over committed on PBEM games at the moment anyway and will have a hard time keeping up through the new year
58 11/23/2019 10:21:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message bty for first action. truthfully, I think that maybe we should start over. I don't want to give the game away so to speak, but the best defense is a good offense. Embody the spirit of von schliefen.

Also recall that historically AH suffered a series of losses that required Germany weakening it's central push to prevent AH collapse. This game is set up to model that well. you should also take care to consider playing 1 card for RP most turns

51 11/23/2019 8:51:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message you have some losses in Nis, and I think no advance there. but probably an advance in Lublin on the fort?

I definitely need to wrap my head around the encirclement tactics in this game but on the other hand that AH front in the east feels so fragile not sure how to defend it with so few units

Defending units negate one required Corps step loss and instead retreat 1 space. This also cancels any retreat caused by losing the combat. If no Corps step(s) lost, an Army step loss may be negated.

Message from Central Powers:
I think there is no advance, so I will play this now

yes I agree the deluxe map is quite nice, and helpful for a new player with the clear borders...
that sequence of play makes sense to me
12 10/29/2019 9:47:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message ouch for me. my retreat is done, I will forgo a return fire since it has no chance of success. I'm noticing that the optional cards are included. Should be interesting.

MO
10 10/29/2019 9:36:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Yeah, but truth be told there's only one CC I would have played here and I didn't get it so no big deal. As far as rhythm goes, what I find works best is -
1. declare moves / combats
2. do moves
3, process combat up to and including attacker plays CC
4. send file to defender for defender to play cc/ roll combat
5. defender resolves

I have sometimes detailed where I'd like losses and what advances I'd like to see done when I have played Pursuit of Glory. So, in this example you could say, assign first loss to GE2, advance GE1 and 3 to sedan. That would prevent the defender sending back another file. But we can do that maybe once you have a better idea of the game. No worries about a learning game, it's been maybe a year since I played.
9 10/29/2019 9:30:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message DAMN, I gotta say after playing on the old map for so long, this is a really attractive map

7 10/29/2019 9:08:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message oops I might be doing this out of order. you could have played a combat card? I will pause here and let you finish.

roll of 4 on the 15 column is 7 losses so I think that FR army is replaced with a corps which is then reduced one more step

please bear with me when it comes to any rules mistakes as I am still getting my handle on the rules. if you have advice for a smooth PBEM sequence of play lmk

I'll create the Vassal file in Dropbox and then I think I am required to start with Guns of August, right?
