Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
76 7/13/2020 3:03:00 PM Turn 1 German Message EOT file sent.
75 7/12/2020 11:50:00 AM Turn 1 German Message yes it evacuates and is marked with a Do Not use marker
74 7/12/2020 2:20:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message You will see I have a question regarding the Baltic Naval Flotilla in my log file.
73 7/10/2020 12:32:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, thanks.
72 7/9/2020 8:12:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Transferred units are fully usable only units that have to evacuate because of an enemy unit occupying their hex are do not use.
71 7/9/2020 12:47:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, I will do a log file for my non phasing returns and transfers. But I believe that if I transfer an air Flotilla then I cannot use it in combat during my turn. 7.7.1.1. Please confirm that. I would like to go slower (not overall) your next turn as I could not keep up with you with all the new systems for me and there were some oversights that were not in my favor. Not that that will make mcuh difference.
70 7/5/2020 3:41:00 PM Turn 1 German Message yes I have the year wrong
69 7/5/2020 1:49:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Germany launched Barbarossa in 1941. I should be able to spend some time today on RF. Thanks.
68 7/5/2020 10:10:00 AM Turn 1 German Message G-6-40-5
G= German
6= June
40 = 1940
5 = 5th file this turn
67 7/5/2020 1:58:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Can you tell me how your numbering system works?
DB-MM (obvious) G-6-40-5?
66 7/4/2020 6:51:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Please look at the last map I sent you I have long since retreated from B19 and You expressed the desire to retreat from B2

Message #45 I retreated from B19
Message #48 B2 Odessa Mine results were 0-1r assume you want to retreat

ALL the above has been communicated and is in the last file I sent labeled DB-MM-G-6-40-5

Also when I sent the message and in the file is what you need to do next,

What is next look at the SEQUENCE OF Play, we have resolved combat and now on step 4:b:1) Non phasing Return and Transfer.

I will again list what you option are: return all air and naval that were used in combat to any base in their range.
Any air or naval not used in combat may transfer to any base within twice their movement allowance.
65 7/4/2020 4:49:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Let me know what I still have to do. Retreat from B2? And do you have a retreat from B19?
64 7/4/2020 4:40:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message I did look at the features but obviously not close enough. OK, good, you would do the hits.
63 7/1/2020 8:10:00 AM Turn 1 German Message The phasing player typically places the hits when he is resolving combat.

I live in Marietta GA North of Atlanta
62 7/1/2020 8:09:00 AM Turn 1 German Message You need to explore your game features. Across the top are tabs that include eliminated units, replacement units, Mines, the OOB, charts,
61 7/1/2020 12:54:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message What is next? And you never told me where you are located.
60 7/1/2020 12:53:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Drag the eliminated unit from where? I did not place the hits, I thought you might do that. I will from now on. I am copying everything as I go so I don't miss anything. I really don't like not seeing the messages when this window comes up. I have to copy and go back, then paste when I come back to this window. I will get the hang of it in time.
59 6/29/2020 10:29:00 PM Turn 1 German Message so you really can it leave it open to finish later
58 6/29/2020 10:28:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I think it only time outs when you do nothing for a while
57 6/29/2020 8:26:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I do not think you Vassal file was from my last file thus you lost me marking the unit hits ? Or you didn't scroll thru to the end .
I will from now on send a v-save file plus a log file
56 6/29/2020 8:23:00 PM Turn 1 German Message To return a eliminated unit to the map just drag and drop
55 6/29/2020 8:22:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Why not just look instead of printing?
54 6/29/2020 8:21:00 PM Turn 1 German Message If you are having trouble with time out, key it into a e-mail message the copy and only send in ACTS
53 6/29/2020 8:15:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Odessa mine look at message 47 48
52 6/29/2020 7:45:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, let's try this again. That was a real time waster.
Begining with:
Battle 13 - Soviet Armor is eliminated, unable to retreat
Battle 10 - Soviet unit retreats to CC6.
Battle 9 - Soviet unit retreats to BB5.
Battle 15 - Soviet unit retreats to KK8.
Battle 14 - Soviet unit retreats to JJ7.
Battle 12 - Soviet unit retreats to EE7
Battle 10 - Soviet unit retreats to DD6.
Battle 4 - Soviet unit retreats to N7.
Battle 5 - Question, this is a +3 with a DR of 4 = 0-1. I am not sure if I removed 5A from the hex or not. I don't know how to recover that unit after elimination. Soviet unit retreats to R9.
Battle 20 - Soviet unit retreats to Q6.
Battle 19 - Again, a question. A -2 with a DR of 4 is 1R-0 not 0-1R.
Finn B1 - Soviet unit retreats to SS18.
Finn B2 - Soviet unit retreats to VV20.
We still need a die roll for the mine sweeping gig in Odessa. I will send you a log file of all of this except relating to my questions and anything else I missed. I didn't go through all the battles etc to look for errors or questions other than those mentioned. Too far behind.


There were still some Soviet units that were eliminated still on the board so I removed them.

You need to note if the fleets in the box with my minesweepers are going to do battle or not.
13 5/21/2020 8:48:00 PM Turn 1 German Message did you have some questions?
12 4/27/2020 8:18:00 PM Turn 1 German Message ello Michael,
I have to say I have never played a game with all the Optional Rules in effect. I will be a bit rocky using all of them since I will have to familiarize myself with them. So patience might be requested. No problem.
First, I want to clarify the Rules you sent below.
1. " Coastal Supply is only good." Are your referring to 11.4.2 on page 2 of the Advanced Game Rules?Yes
2. "Do not use 19.5 Limited Intelligence." Are you referring only to 19.5 itself? Yes
3. "Movement from Amphibious Landings and Paradrops Limited to 1 hex." You are referring to 17.5 and 17.3.4 respectively? YES
4. "Air supply limited to 1 unit if full supply per air mission." You will have to help me on this one regarding a rule. Each Air Unit may only supply one Unit
5. "No naval battle, mine laying or sweeping in port hex attacked by ground unit." Are you just prohibiting this activity, I don't find anything in the rule book. Could be there of course. Clarifies 15.2.5.1
6. "Naval units in a naval base hex where an enemy." Is there a rule that addresses this?
7. "Naval units halved rounded up." You think naval units are overrated here? Everything I have read on shore bombardment of troops has a very traumatic effect on them. 8" to 14 " shells coming in can be overwhelming (Guadalcanal). But you are the more experienced player of this game so if you prefer that so be it. I think so but goo either way.
8. "If a naval unit attacks a hex where an enemy." So you are saying an air unit can choose to fly away on an other mission if attacked by a enemy naval unit or stand and defend? Yes the idea of naval units attacking air units is sort of crazy. The air could simply fly away well before the first shell landed.
9. "OOS effects (18.1 & 18.2)." If you think this works out, OK by me. I believe this is more historical and realistic.
10. "Movement, a unit may always move one hex." If you think this works out, OK by me. Makes sense
11. "Infantry units can not conduct Blitz attacks." Has always been my and opponents interpretation. Some think otherwise.
12. "Even units marked OOS can add extra MF." Seems to be what the rule describes.Some think otherwise.
13. "Extra movement (19.2) is limited to only one extra hex." I would agree. More realistic. Good the game could be broken with the unmodified rule.
14. "First turn Clear in all zones." Probably favors the German but I am OK with it.
15. "Air units may be railed." Was this historic? Well the air units flew but their base railed. Allowed by the rules some just are surprised which is why I noted it.
16. "Will play either way." If you are saying that Blitz armor with a 1 showing could pursue into a clear hex and then participate in combat with an enemy in that hex I would say no. At least that is the way my opponents and I always played. Just clarification as some play otherwise.
17. "Hex XX24 leading off the map." Sounds OK to me. This was a mistake by the designer, First off Murmansk was an Ice free port and receive all sorts of war supplies and during the first winter the Russians penal battalions constructed a rail link off board between Murmansk rail Archangels rail line , you can see the stub from Archangels exiting the board at XX29 and that is a red supply source but it leads to Murmansk the same as the line at XX19 which should also be a red supply source. The Russians were very proud of this accomplishment and a documentary was made. Some of the penal workers got freed, to join the army! They did this in horrible weather conditions in January and February strafed by Germans thru the swamps.

11 4/27/2020 7:29:00 PM Turn 1 German Message need to keep game active or it goes away
10 3/18/2020 11:09:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Want me to delete this game?
9 2/2/2020 5:47:00 PM Turn 1 German Message you still on for a game?
8 12/10/2019 9:59:00 PM Turn 1 German Message somewhat easier to use that other die rollers because you don't have to enter e-mails and the record is there, unlike some other die rollers I have used that don't always seem to show up we have a log that keeps the record.
7 12/10/2019 9:55:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Great wade in and do your Russian setup, you can take as much time as you need.
6 12/10/2019 9:53:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message I have no problem playing the Russian side.
