638 2/2/2020 9:07:00 PM Spring 1917 Moderator Change Moderator player Moderator player changed from Michael Dauer to Michael Dauer
637 1/20/2020 9:07:00 AM Spring 1917 Allies Message Thanks Barrington I'll send Michael an email. It was a fun game and I appreciate your sporting attitude in the face of many bad rolls and setbacks beyond your control.

Your aggressiveness in the West kept me off balance for most of the game, that's definitely a lesson I'll remember when I play the CP in the future. I think you may have fared better if you sent Austrians against Serbia and the Balkans instead of Italy, or dug a trench in Constantinople and pulled back the Bulgarians.
636 1/20/2020 9:01:00 AM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message At that point I will offer my sword and resign. I was outplayed. Thanks for the game. I will leave you to notify Michael Dauer.

633 1/20/2020 7:47:00 AM Spring 1917 Allies Message Flank is good, which should give me a win no matter what. Whatever losses I take go to MEF and/or CND according to the loss priority rules, advance PT and 2 BRc from Gallipoli to Constantinople

626 1/20/2020 7:01:00 AM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message I have Lodz, Lemberg and Czern all with their original owners. You could not take Antwerp last action as there was not enough movement. It needs 4 to reach there and back. so it seems that it is 5VPs as I cannot fault your counting otherwise.

623 1/20/2020 3:56:00 AM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message I have not yet done your action or checked the VPs but in my mind something says it costs more to activate the MEF. I have hunted through the rules but can find nothing and also looked in the FAQ. Is this a figment of my imagination?
622 1/19/2020 7:08:00 AM Spring 1917 Allies Message As a check, I believe VP = 4 currently:

+1 Brussels
-2 Konigsberg/Danzig
-1 Sofia
-3 Blockade
-1 Lusitania
-0 Rape of Belgium/Reichstag truce.

I'm not positive thought because I haven't looked in the log to check ownership of lodz, Lemberg and czernowitz. Let me know if you agree

571 1/15/2020 7:43:00 AM Winter 1917 Allies Message I have no problem with you changing your retreat move, if that's why you want to resign. I meant my message as an OOS warning for the way I saw things on my map- I figured either there was a unit I didn't know about or you were making an oversight that it would be unsporting to exploit.

The dice are a part of the game outside my control, but in my opinion this is the kind of devastating mistake that supply warnings are designed to prevent.
570 1/15/2020 7:20:00 AM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message I shall resign the game. That was an error of great stupidity. I totally forgot about advancing 2 spaces.
That was a nice move with the serbs. I think I got a poor run of rolls in the west.
