172 3/7/2020 4:40:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message No, I didn't go to Prezcon. Other things came up.

Russian VP 2 refers to the track in the lower left hand corner of the board. We keep track of Russian VPs for the play of cards that lead to the fall of the Tsar.

The result of the Calais battle was 5-3, so I do have to flip one. I flip GE12 in Cambria, and advance the two armies in Ostend to Calais. VP now 17.

Your turn.
171 3/6/2020 12:20:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message Heck of a die roll. I was fortunate and your rolls have been unusually hot.

119 12/21/2019 10:48:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message I should be consistent. British forces are abbreviated BR, Belgian BE. So you have BR3 in Calais and [BRc] in Amiens.
118 12/21/2019 10:43:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message No, Tom, you are right. I forgot that a swamp stops an advance. So after the battle, I can advance only to Ostend. So, you are right; VP 15. Calais is still yours, and you can move there this this turn.

So at the end of your turn (AP3), you have BE3 in Calais and BEFc and [BEc] in Amiens. I have GE1 in Ostend and GE2 and [GE10] in Brussels.
117 12/21/2019 10:43:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message No, Tom, you are right. I forgot that a swamp stops an advance. So after the battle, I can advance only to Ostend. So, you are right; VP 15. Calais is still yours, and you can move there this this turn.

So at the end of your turn (AP3), you have BE3 in Calais and BEFc and [BEc] in Amiens. I have GE1 in Ostend and GE2 and [GE10] in Brussels.
116 12/21/2019 10:34:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message OK Rich. I guess my Vassal board is all toast. Please send me your file. I thought I retreated and then the swamp in Ostend stops your advance farther. My bad.
115 12/21/2019 6:09:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message I advanced to Calais (entry 112), which is also a VP spot, so now VP 16. Your move is an attack on Calais? It appears to be a move, which you cannot do.
114 12/21/2019 2:32:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message Check journal entry 109 where VP15 for Ostend, not VP16?

113 12/21/2019 2:23:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #33: 2 / Grand Fleet
If played in the Allied Action Round immediately following the "High Seas Fleet," cancel that card. Cannot be played as an event at any other time.

Message from Allies:
112 12/20/2019 5:11:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Ok, so BEFc and [BRc] are in Amiens, and GE1 is in Calais. VP 16.

On the forts, see 15.1.2. They do fire back, but as corps, so in the case of Lutsk, the most it could do as 1 damage, i.e., no effect.

For my remaining action point, I will move the corps in Ankara to Trebizond.
111 12/20/2019 12:24:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message Yeah, I thought that juggernaut was about to fall. Let me go back to that original move. I looked at the saved vassal files and I thought I had the full strength BEF corps and a diminished BE corps. Am I correct? So I never knew you could straight out attack a fort. I guess it doesn't fire back? Finally, you must know by now that not only I am rusty with PoG, I a flat out not good at it. Hope you do not mind.
110 12/19/2019 10:03:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Tom, I realize now that my supply warning didn't really matter, and therefore wasn't helpful. There was no way to prevent me from getting Ostend. If you had retreated, you would still have two corps, which have now been eliminated. If you want to go back to your original play, that is fine. In that case, I will advance through to Calais, and I would get one action point this round to play instead of the attack I just did on Ostend.

Let me know what you'd prefer.

105 12/17/2019 5:41:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message So I'll give you a supply warning here. IF you retreat, I can advance and put Antwerp out of supply. You don't have to retreat if you eliminate the half corp.
