Contingent action ...
I'll take the FR10 to Paris

However, you pointed out a OOS on the Belgium coast I don't see it or our maps are off.
BE1 can't go out of supply as you can't end a turn in Ostend or Calais without race to the sea.
I guess you can try to control Calais with a movem but can't go to Ostend as you will have to end in that space.

BE1 is in Brussels so you can't go there. All other paths are stopped. I can respond to race to sea, so unless I'm missing something and this is a fun game play, help me find my error. I'll redo this move.

2 12/20/2019 8:16:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message The below is copy and paste from the BPA tournament scenario which is 100% the best format for this game.
1 12/20/2019 8:15:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Just wanted to touch base that we are indeed playing the tournament historical version.

1.2 Bidding for Sides
Each player rolls a die. Player with high die declares a side he wishes to play AND a positive number of Victory Points they will cede the opposing player - any whole number including a bid of zero. The opposing player either accepts the bid (and thus plays the other side), or bids a higher Victory Point number to play the same side. Bidding ends when one player accepts the opposing bid. At the END of the game, the final Victory Point total is adjusted by the ceded points.
2. Schedule:
Notification will be given 30 minutes and then 15 minutes prior to the end of each 7-hour round. Slow play will be a factor should a game need to be adjudicated.
3. Tournament Officials:
GM: Tom Gregorio. Assistant GMs: TBD
4. Special Tournament Rules:
From rule 4.2.4: Recording the cards placed into the discard pile is prohibited, unless agreed to beforehand. However, players may refer to the discard pile for previously played cards which have been removed from play (if these are in a separate pile) in order to confirm an event or war status. Players may use any other optional rules they wish so long as both players agree.
5. Rules Clarifications and Player Aids:
5.1 Version: We will use the 2010 POG Rules. These rules are available from GMT Games in their POG 2010 Reprint, or free for download from their "Living Rules:" section of their company website http://www.gmtgames.com/t-GMTLivingRules.aspx.
5.2 Optional and Special Rules
Optional Rule 4.2.4 - AH and Ru corps at Lutsk and Stanislaw
Optional Rule 11.2.10 - Trench roll modification
CP addition - Trench in Strasbourg
AP addition/subtraction - Remove trench Brussels
Add trenches in Verona, Asiago, Maggiore and Udine
VP space changes:
o CP
 Remove VP spaces from Turkey (2 - Jerusalem and Kharput)
 Add two VP spaces - Koblenz and Aachen
o AP
 Remove VP spaces from Ahwaz and Venice and Minsk

 Add spaces at Kovno and Sedan and Amiens
o RP change: The CP receives 1 GE RP each TW turn, i.e., after it has drawn TW cards, if during the RP interphase it has at least three French/Belgian spaces, including Sedan.
5.3 Scenario Details
The CP Player must open with Guns of August as an Event.
Entrench may not be played as an Event on Turn 1.
Only Austrian and Italian armies may operate in Italy (move, attack, advance, or SR into any space in Italy) and no German armies may end their movement (OPS or SR) in Trent, Villach or Trieste until the start of a turn at which THE AP (change from prior year) is at Total War.
The following cards may double as OPS when played as Events: Landships, Zimmermann Telegram, Over There, Tsar Takes Command, Fall of the Tsar, Bolshevik Revolution.
If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of Turn 20, add one VP for each US Army reinforcement event not played at the event
If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of Turn 20, subtract two VP if the Tsar has not fallen.
Use the optional 8 card-hand.
Royal Tank Corp - this may be used v. clear spaces in Germany.
On Turn 1 a British MO = French MO
