498 12/10/2019 11:59:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message It's annoying when the single card left in the draw deck is a big one...

Yes, hope to meet you again in the final---and that my trench rolling streak continues there ;)
497 12/9/2019 5:42:00 PM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message Tsar takes command wasn't a long-term idea, just happened to get it early and was momentarily happy I could use it. I doubt it would have made any difference.

Yes, H-L was the last card, so I didn't have it in hand.

This was a really good game to see a good allied response.
First loss, so I hope to see you in the finals.
496 12/9/2019 5:11:00 PM Summer 1916 Allies Message P.S. Two things I'm curious about:

How did initially having the wrong map affect your game? Had you intended to get to TW using Tsar Takes Command rather than Rathenau?

Did you have H-L in hand at the end, or was that the last card in your draw deck? I was worried that you might have initially intended to play it as the event, but might switch to playing it for RP at the last moment, so I went for the supply threat in round 5.
495 12/9/2019 12:18:00 PM Summer 1916 Allies Message Thank you too for the game!

I never seem to never get round to any NE action. This game I first drew Yudenitch with a bunch of other Russian reinforcement cards (which I then delayed playing anyway due to some muddled thinking), and thought I'd just wait for Allenby to come round.

While I felt my card draws kept being pretty awkward (e.g. no Romania until you had already reached TW), the dice seemed to keep rolling my way. The influential seemed to be the Valjevo trench, since it led to the Austrians being tied up in Serbia, causing lots of Germans to get tied up in the Carpathians and hence weakness on other fronts.

All the best to you too for the holidays!
494 12/9/2019 11:33:00 AM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message At this point I resign as there is really no way to hold the Western Front, and there won't be much progress on the Eastern. Good game, I learned a ton especially interesting was your no-NE strategy. I'll have to think about that one. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

444 12/5/2019 6:28:00 PM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message You're right. I was thinking all ops done in order, but technically all moves have to happen before all combats. So forget taking control of bialystok and move him to plock via warsaw.
443 12/5/2019 5:56:00 PM Summer 1916 Allies Message I don't think GE4 can move through Lomza without stopping to besiege it, in which case GE12 can't attack it. The simplest fix would be to move GE4 via Warsaw instead, and not take control of Bialystok.
