53 11/27/2019 11:52:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Ok. Will do that this weekend or morning. Happy Thanksgiving. I am finding it difficult to connect the ACTS with Vassal Board. I missed your GE Army. Tricky, not sure if playing PBEM with Vassal alone might be smother. No worries, will get the Admin phase done as you said.
52 11/27/2019 9:28:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Now, in the tournament, after the AP played his six Action Round, he does the Attrition, Siege, and War Status phases, discards strategy cards and announces builds. Then the CP player announces his builds, ends the turn in ACTS so that both players can draw cards for the next round. Then the CP player rolls the Mandatory Offensives and plays his first round.

Obviously my rules are rusty so I appreciate patience until I learn your script...

40 11/26/2019 12:39:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Rich - Need a rules refresh (of course I am emailing from work). Regarding the Sedan attack... Can I not take the loss from any of the spaces? Verdun possibly?
39 11/26/2019 12:35:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Ahh! Flanking fails. Defender fires before attacker.

Defending units negate one required Corps step loss and instead must retreat 1 space. Full strength Attacking units may advance. If no Corps step(s) lost, an Army step loss may be negated. See rule 12.6 for details.

Message from Allies:
Attack Sedan from Chateau Thierry and Verdun ; MA-French. No liking this as you have a good position and may be my undoing. You have played well and had the dice god shine on you.
33 11/24/2019 11:21:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 2 / Von Francois

Message from Central Powers:
1: GE4 from Metz to Sedan
2: [AH3] Tarnopol to Czern. (Putting a unit in brackets indicates that it is at half strength.)
30 11/24/2019 8:22:00 AM August 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:
29 11/24/2019 7:46:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Wow, lucky turn for me!
Note on below. In ACTS, you always put the battle site in the "Comments to include" box when rolling dice. Just so there is no after the fact ambiguity about which battle the die roll applied to.

AH3 flips.
GE1 flips. GE2 advances to Brussels. Trench destroyed. VP 10. (That's right, ACTS doesn't keep track of VPs. You indicate them in the Journal as changes occur.
28 11/23/2019 10:23:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message THe BEF Corps retreat was through Brussels as I had to retreat 2. Unlike the RU Corp in K-P that only had to retreat 1. No way ion ACTS to record VPs, right?
27 11/23/2019 10:20:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message That will also increase your VP (VP hex) to the current of 10, right?
26 11/23/2019 10:19:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message So 7 loss against the Allies and 5 for the Germans, delta = 2. Retreat to Ostend as the full BEF Corps that replace the BEF Army.

18 11/23/2019 6:57:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message GE5 will advance to Sedan.
17 11/22/2019 6:04:00 PM August 1914 Allies Discard Strategy card #13: 4 / Rape of Belgium

Message from Allies:
16 11/22/2019 6:04:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message SO I had to retreat two from the combat. I moved from Sedan to Chateu Thierry to Cambrai.

Right, wil play the Rape of Belgium after your advance to Sedan, having to stop in the forest of the hex.
Rape of Belgium is discarded or removed from the game.
15 11/22/2019 2:44:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Thatís right. You got it.

So, when the results are in, you need to say what your retreat will be (or in this case whether you will take another step loss), then I will say whether I will advance.

Then it is your turn, and you can play your first card.

Now, we may have a bit of a problem, because I see that, although you pulled Rape of Belgium back, the center panel still shows Allies as having War Status of 2. If you play it again and it moves it up to 4, Iím not sure how we change that. So, I suggest that you just discard it, and then weíll count it as played, i.e. subtract 1VP.
14 11/22/2019 10:27:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message So I am learning. Rolled twice on two entries. I think you wanted me to roll 2 dice, the top being the Attacker which was a 1 (CP) and 2 (FR), resulting in 4 hits on the French and 2 on the German. THat flipped the FR and no effect on the GE/CP. SO how do you handle advance after combat?

So Sorry. Perhaps need to call and walkthru this... getting into game and acts. So you attacked Sedan and rather than play a card I need to roll the dice to complete your combat, right?
8 11/22/2019 10:11:00 AM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #13: 4 / Rape of Belgium
May only be played if CP played "Guns of August." May only be played as an Event if the Allied War Status is still at Mobilization. Subtract 1 VP.

In ACTS, the defender always does the attack die rolls, after playing any combat cards he might have. Generally, do both rolls at once, and the attacker's dice is always first.
5 11/21/2019 6:10:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #1: 3 / Guns of August
May only be played in the first Action Round of the August 1914 turn. The Liege fort is destroyed. Place the GE 1st and 2nd Armies in the Liege space. The GE 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Armies are activated for Combat.
