Message from Central Powers:
Turn 1 MO's, CP first
302 12/10/2019 4:44:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Yeah, let’s fire it up again at the standard 1 VP to the CP bid. You pick the sides, and we’ll rock.

Fun exploration of supply and permanent elimination. I learned a lot.
301 12/10/2019 3:50:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Okay I think that's game! I've got nothing that could conceivably restore supply to the 4 Austrian armies (and miscellaneous corps) in the next two AR's, and once they're gone there is no further "theoretical supply threat" to the Russian Army, so they get to keep their gains. Well done! Time to start another... want to switch sides or keep the same ones?

Exegesis - not sure where that boiled up from! But if felt like the nature of the activity!
300 12/10/2019 12:57:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message And “exegesis” is an excellent ten dollar word. Preacher’s kid? (I am.) Or just a rules lawyer? ;)
299 12/10/2019 12:41:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message PoG is a great ‘pace’ fight. I certainly didn’t want to play Romania and MEF for Ops this turn. But those plays force you into plays you don’t want to make, either.

295 12/10/2019 10:44:00 AM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Lol -- Gregorio points out 12.4.7, which exhaustively lays out the situations when an army is permanently eliminated. Overstacked-retreat is explicitly listed here. It's ironic that over the last two games I've spent probably a combined hour on exegesis of the whole 12.5 (Retreats) section, when the answer was sitting right there at the bottom of the previous page! :D

Oh my! This is the first time I've looked at your actual turn. Looks like it might be curtains for the Habsburgs... I guess I'll put this German on and see if he can help at all. One of the interesting things about PoG is how I've got a hand that theoretically offers all kinds of help, but once you get on the down side of a big wave of momentum you don't have any time to bring it to bear! It *looked* like a good T5 hand :D
293 12/9/2019 11:09:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message You'd think by now the PoG rules would be errata-proof. But since I already have a recent email thread with Gregorio about offering VASSAL module improvements (may not be a master PoG player but by god I'm good at game interface development!) so I'll make him answer a rules question for me too :D
292 12/9/2019 10:53:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Heh I found an errata (https://www.gmtgames.com/nnpg/pogfaq.pdf) that says the overstacked armies ARE permanently eliminated. But the errata is from like 2002 and the rules are the hot new 2018 edition, so I'm not sure. Lol, PoG rulebook, you're killing me! :P
291 12/9/2019 10:39:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message On supply rules - you are now tripping over the exact phrasing that tripped me up, only now in the opposite direction! See 12.5.4 as it TURNS OUT, only applies when the units can't make their retreat AT ALL -- in other words there's no connecting non-enemy-occupied space the right number of spaces away, at all. (So imagine a non-Italian unit backed into Taranto and retreated... or a non-Italian unit in Foggia retreated 2 spaces when enemies occupy Naples and Pescara.) But on the other hand, it turns out that the 4th bullet of 12.5.5 says overstacking units are "eliminated" -- doesn't SAY anything about permanently eliminated here (admittedly there's a 10% vagueness factor on this part). And then 12.5.6 for the previously-retreated thing then says the most clearly of all not-permanently-eliminated.

Having just come off my Moquin game where 12.5.4 *did* perm elim a French army in Italy, I was sort of thinking I had mastered this section, but clearly I had not, since there seem to be (at least) three different elimination scenarios during retreat, one of which is definitely permanent, one of which is definitely NOT permanent, and one of which is prooooobably not permanent.

So really no big deal it's a training game anyway, my first time with ACTS, etc. I made a clear questionable play by leaving the gap open on AR1 and then followed up with misunderstanding the retreat rules on AR2 and missing my "great moment". If things go crazy off the rails to where they get silly, we can just start again!
290 12/9/2019 10:27:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message On having a slow week -- heh as you can see I had a busy day myself! I'll take a look at board tomorrow bright and early!
289 12/9/2019 11:13:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message In other words, I recognize that my play was pretty risky and by rights I should be reeling backward from Austria-Hungary and considering conceding.
288 12/9/2019 11:12:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message Rules stuff from before. 12.5.4 (elim due to failure to retreat) and 12.5.6 (subsequent combat against retreaters)...

...I think in your text below you had it backwards, am I right? If units overstack on retreat, the elims are permanent. (No corps taken from RB, just pull the army off forever.) If units are eliminated in subsequent combat, just placed directly into Elim Box. (Again, no corps taken from RB, just elim the army.)
287 12/9/2019 10:46:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message The (SBc) is tracing supply from Russia, btw. Outside Serbia, OOS, except able to trace at this moment through Budapest to Russia.

284 12/9/2019 9:06:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message I'm a little slower for about the next week. My mom is visiting. Unclear what my pace can be, just a heads up.
283 12/8/2019 10:33:00 AM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Actually, tell you what, let's relocate the (AH5) to Zagreb from Sarajevo. There are still supply dangers, but I like that better and 1 less army to potentially starve.
282 12/8/2019 10:22:00 AM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Yeah I think that WAS a 4-Ops card already, and the Novi Sad moves were intended to at least minimize the supply danger (or maximize the risk for you in trying them, such that it is). So I think I have to just roll with this :-)
281 12/8/2019 9:52:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message This is what I'm thinking the map would look like after my next move, with a 4 or 5 ops card:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xy2562d0aetbqav/AADGi65aDPMfg9pwSdVG0RNga?dl=0
280 12/8/2019 9:10:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message I'm not positive I'm going to make this play, but I can put the Austrians out of supply by moving to Zagreb. You can prevent that by playing a 4 ops card instead of a 3 ops card and blocking it.

I'm totally fine with this game getting wild and coming off the rails a bit. It's fun. I might cut the Austrians OOS, and the Germans might put them back in supply and kill a bunch of Russians OOS. It could get weird, and that's good.

But, if you wan to add one Op to your last play before it gets really weird, just say the word.

266 12/7/2019 5:37:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Eliminate (AH3) and flip its replacement corps.

Yes, I could have gone for the elimination-on-overstack, and would have since better overall odds to do substantial damage and no more risk but I misunderstood the elimination rules, I thought the elimination-when-LF-in-retreat-square was permanent whereas the overstack is not, but apparently neither is permanent. Oh well, good for my PoG training which is part of the goal...

257 12/7/2019 10:16:00 AM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Good morning! Yeah analysis so far is I probably blew a reasonably plausible position by attacking Stanislau instead of filling the gap in the line, but that's my inexperience coming into play. I clearly must take ops, and I probably need to put an attack together, but I'm still toying around with the number of ops to spend, etc. :-)
256 12/7/2019 9:31:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message No matter how this turns out, you're in the Random Man sweepstakes. :) You can tell Lyman. I've been trying to push this game hard, trying to break it, even. I figure there is a level of aggression I haven't discovered yet, and I don't know if my attack with the BEF and this thing are the right plays, but I'm trying to learn how to drive the game, how to put the other side into tough choices. I figure that there are some positions, this is one such, where the risks to both sides are immense. It's not necessarily good for stable play, but learning how to push those high risk situations in my favor will be good for my competitive play. I've played this game a lot without learning how to drive it.

252 12/6/2019 10:18:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Okay, I'll get rolling!
251 12/6/2019 10:16:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message yes. also you risk oos to munkacs if you dont activate for movement. im willing to let you play all those ops. not sure its the right play but i am going with it.
250 12/6/2019 9:51:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Okay so comments on the supply risk - It looks like pretty much any conceivable result at Gorlice leaves me with 1 attack factor there (maybe army, maybe corps). So my attack factor vs. Miskolcz would be 5 (against your 9). The main risk likes in the fact that I can generate a 3-way flank against it that succeeds the flank attempt 5-in-6 and fires first A5, which if I hit in the high half of the table lowers your return fire column and subjects you to a substantial chance of a 1 space retreat. The risk looks less than 50% -- maybe in the 1-in-3 range, but the other part of the risk is that there's not much risk to ME to try the attack - I mean I'd need to do something about Czernowitz but other than that, an attack from Budapest seems pretty reasonable in any event, and with a 1/3 shot at a semi-game-crushing victory it may be a no-brainer. Now *I'm* not normally one to wager an statistically significant existential price against a tactical advantage (like I don't make plays in Twilight Struggle that might gain me 2VP but 1-in-6 would Defcon 1 me), and there are clearly safer ways to hammer on Austria but it's definitely your choice on the calculated risk angle. After all, it will *probably* work :D So those are my thoughts - let me know if you want to proceed!
249 12/6/2019 8:31:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message There's a risk that a 1-space retreat to me at Miskolcz and any LF to me in your round at Uzhgorod could eliminate all 3 Russian armies. But I think it's worth the risk. That's how I read the position. Comments welcome.
248 12/6/2019 8:29:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Covers the OOS threat to me.

Over to you for advance decisions in Brussels and Uzhgorod, and then you can take your RP's which I think you played.

Eliminate RU2 and flip its replacement corps.
Flip GE8 and the GEc in Insterberg.
No retreats, no advances.
218 12/6/2019 4:04:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message I think this was probably poor play by me, but I’ll take that Brussels result. Whew.

Flip BEF.
Eliminate (GE1) and its replacement corps. GE12 retreats to Sedan, GE10 to Liege.

Okay! Ostend vs Brussels, A6+1:A12. Let's fuck up some Brits!!!
214 12/6/2019 3:34:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message And yeah, I forgot you SR’d out at Uzhgorod, 6:1 it is.
213 12/6/2019 3:34:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message Yes, you’re right. I missed that. 12 column defending at Brussels, thanks.
212 12/6/2019 3:28:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Also at Uzhgorod I show a A6:A1 attack not A6:A2, right? I have only the (AH3) in there as the corps SR'ed away somewhere last action round. I'm sure you still want to roll this attack though :-) - but I want to make sure we're straight on Brussels situation before I roll anything.
211 12/6/2019 3:25:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Clarification - I show Brussels defending on A12-14, not A9-11: has GE10, GE12, and (GE1). Pls check and let me know before I proceed.
210 12/6/2019 3:23:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Well at least it's going to send winter out with a bang!

Not at all sure this is the right thing to do, but I'm going to do it anyway.

T4 AP6 3 Ops

Attack Ostend (risking BEF)
Attack Kovno
Attack Stanislau

BE1 and BEF attack Brussels @ 6:9. I will play Air Superiority CC.

RU1 and RU2 attack Insterberg @ 6:6

RU3, RU11, RU12 attack Uzhgorod @ 6:2

It's conceivable I would advance at each location.

206 12/6/2019 12:57:00 PM Winter 1915 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:
AP5 2 Ops

Move Kamenets-Podolski: RU3, RU11, RU12 to Stanislau, converting Tarnopol and Lemberg on the way
Move Lomza: RU2 > Kovno

Possible OOS situation if you sneak behind the Russians and win a 9:9 at Czernowitz. I'll take my chances.

Back to you.
