May only be played after the "Falkenhayn" and before the "H-L Take Command". A GE attack vs. an undestroyed FR fort space adds a +2 drm. May be played alone as an event (for War Status) if all FR forts are already destroyed.

111 11/12/2019 12:57:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Ah, I didn't have FR3 flipped on my board, so adjusted as you said now.
110 11/12/2019 12:23:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message I have a choice to make about allocating losses in Verdun, but will indeed flip the current full strength army (which is FR4, according to the log). Thus all units in Verdun (FR3, FR4 and FRc) are flipped, so (GE2) does not retreat.

No advance to Przemysl.

I was aware of the supply threat to Warsaw and Lomza, so feel free to act on it. What have the Poles ever done for me...
109 11/12/2019 11:43:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Great, I forgot to give you the supply warning in Poland after I took out Grodno, so I'll not do anything there this turn.

A GE attack vs. RU units adds a +1 drm. May be used against spaces with RU and other nationalities.
26 4 / Place of Execution
May only be played after the "Falkenhayn" and before the "H-L Take Command". A GE attack vs. an undestroyed FR fort space adds a +2 drm. May be played alone as an event (for War Status) if all FR forts are already destroyed.
27 4 / Zeppelin Raids
Subtract 4 BR RPs from the BR RP total during the Replacement Phase of this turn.
4 2 / Severe Weather
Defending units in a mountain space in Fall/Winter or a swamp space in Spring/Fall get a +2 drm.
17 2 / Mata Hari
CP player may examine all cards in the Allied player's hand and then conduct Operations using this card.
10 3 / SUD Army
One AH unit and up to 2 GE corps may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. A different stack may be chosen each Action Round. If a second AH unit or a second non-GE corps unit is present, then the activation cost is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.
32 3 / War in Africa
Permanently remove 1 full strength BR corps from the map or Reserve Box or add 1 VP (Allied choice). If a full strength BR corps is not available, then a reduced BR corps may be used. ANA, AUS, CND, BEF or PT do not qualify as BR for this purpose.

If I had been more awake maybe I would have realised that the SR issue was insignificant, and that you can obviously achieve the same result as in your redo.

Anyway, deferring decisions on my moves till the morning, when maybe I'll have my mental faculties as well as info about your hand ;)

98 11/11/2019 5:02:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message My understanding is that Serboa and Albania remain under AP control. See

11.1.12: "Albanian spaces check Attrition supply by tracing normally to an Allied supply source or tracing to Taranto even while Italy is still Neutral."

14.3.6: "Exception: Under rule 14.1.5, Serbian spaces only convert when CP units enter the spaces."

86 11/11/2019 4:14:00 PM September 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #9: 3 / Moltke
May only be played in August or September 1914. CP Activation in Belgium or France costs 1 OPS per unit (not space) until the "Falkenhayn" card is played. All units must be activated in a space. Supersedes Sud Army and Eleventh army card effects.

Message from Allies:
T2 AP6

First time I've ever been in a position where playing Moltke makes any sense at all, so I feel I have to give it a go... Hope Falkenhayn ends up at the bottom of the deck in the reshuffle!!
85 11/11/2019 3:54:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #13: 4 / Falkenhayn
May be played on Aug/Sep 1914 turns only after the "Moltke" is played or without restriction beginning in Fall 1914. Cancels the effects of "Moltke". Allows play of "Place of Execution"
