Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
132 6/4/2020 11:26:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message I exited 1 FT off the map and killed 1 FT = 2 VPs
You killed 2 FTs and exited none = 2 VPs

So I think it was a tie

5.21 states that a cautious command comes with a sighting action.

Yeah, a lot of elaborate SPI designs collapse under their own weight.
You want to move to another scenario or call this venture done?
131 6/4/2020 10:47:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message I've got one dead sgt, one dead team (they went together the first time you shot), one dead spotter (he went 2nd), one suppressed team, and the last team and the plt ldr in Niner Kilo could make it off the map by turn 20.

Even after playing most of this, AND playing this entire scenario with Sam 2 weeks ago, it was just this 2nd session with Sam last Monday that we figured out that you could cautious move AND sight with one Cautious command. The rules explicitly say you can Sight once with a Fire command, but you have to infer that you can Sight with a Cautious command.

BTW, last Monday? Sam and I started Scenario 53 Breakout. 6 Russian teams and 2 leaders vs 36 US fireteams, 8 MGs and I guess 8 leaders, plus 5 spotters. It took 3 hours over Discord for just the first turn--- he had something like 88 APs and as Disadvantaged player he could use all of them.

Doesn't bode well for playing any of the canned scenarios-- all are larger.
130 6/4/2020 10:13:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message I exited the last ones, and you shot the rest.
129 6/4/2020 9:48:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message Do you mean to say you have NO more units on the map? The rules are unclear on what happens in this case.
128 6/4/2020 2:53:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message T13 WP DONE and out of APs

I have more units on the map, so does the game end at this point? I'm also out of APs.
127 6/4/2020 11:20:00 AM Turn 1 Ron Message T13 USA ap1 done

117 5/30/2020 5:37:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message firing hex?
116 5/30/2020 4:37:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message Immediate fire!

Attack strength 7; rolled an 8 --> suppress result in the woods

And I'm out of APs, so Done
115 5/30/2020 4:11:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message 8 Niner Six occupied
114 5/30/2020 2:58:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message You're missing nothing. I didn't read the whole statement. You're ammo clips are full.

Sight into 8-N; rolled 42
113 5/30/2020 2:03:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message I'm ready to go now.

I disagree about being out of ammo. I have a squad with no MG. I did NOT make an automatic rifle attack (attacking 2 hexes with one Fire Action). On a die roll of 6, fire strength 12, the note is (a)-- out of ammo if MG unit (it isn't), or if Automatic Rifle Attack is made (it wasn't).

What am I missing?
112 5/29/2020 1:44:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message Let me know when you're ready to go to the next turn

Message from Pratik:
Turn 10 initiative

1-3 WP 4-6 USA

(Note: your firing unit last turn is also Out of Ammo)
110 5/29/2020 1:41:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message Good to see you're playing this with SAM. This game is unique despite its age.
109 5/29/2020 1:40:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message See bottom R paragraph on Page 7. As soon as someone goes to 0, we stop. So I would keep going until 0, but since I'm at 0, we're done.

Remember that KIAs result in loss of 2 APs per unit (which is kinda why I'm done now!)

So on to next turn, Turn 10
108 5/29/2020 1:25:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message Sam is crazy about any game with hidden anything, and he checks my collection to see what I've got. We've been playing over Discord on Wednesdays. After we did 3 games of Patton's Vanguard over several weeks, he asked about CF. He found the rules online, and I sent him the Vassal mod. We played the same scenario that you and I are playing. Only 2 successful searches that I remember (both Sam finding me), no shooting at all, and we each got 1 squad off for a tie result.

Message from Ron:
Fire Action (3rdAP) from 8 Niner Six to 7 Lima Two, 5 hexes, 4 man scout without MG is FP 6, doubled to 12

Rules question: I've got 4AP this turn, all my units have now completed their orders, so what happens to the 4th AP which I cannot spend? Is it turn over, or do you get a free action?
106 5/29/2020 1:10:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message In the open, 7L2, and Bold movement, so double fire power

What did you play with Sam?
105 5/29/2020 12:54:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message WP in game vs Sam last week.

Fire strength 14 (would be doubled if your unit is using Bold movement)
57 1/21/2020 2:01:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message 8 Lima Six is occupied
56 1/20/2020 1:30:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message SIGHT action, megahex 8 Lima. Die roll 53

55 1/19/2020 11:26:00 AM Turn 1 Ron Message We're not going to roll back anything.

Sadly, 10.36 doesn't apply for this situation.

DONE
54 1/19/2020 10:33:00 AM Turn 1 Pratik Message Per 10.32, #3, if the final modified roll is higher than the search ratting, the sighting attempt is successful. So actually, your last search in the prior turn was successful and this one isn't. But since neither of us picked up on that, I'll give you a choice. Which one do you want a successful search in, 8 or 9 kilo? And then from now on, need to roll high to search successfully.
53 1/18/2020 8:53:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message Sighting attempt 9 Kilo. Die roll 24. What are you hiding there?
52 1/18/2020 7:19:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message NATO has first action

TURN 4:

1-3 NATO; 4-6 WP
50 1/18/2020 11:22:00 AM Turn 1 Ron Message Disneyland was super fun, we were there with my kid (who came down from SF, sister in law and her 2 kids). My feet were ready to fall off by Monday (step count Fri-Mon was 15K, 30K, 29K and 19K), but other than that we had a blast. The nephew that was in Syria with the USMC last summer decided to spend ALL his back pay on souvenirs, it was quite spectacular.

SIGHT action, megahex 8 Kilo. Die roll > 35, so fail.

You can tell me if you have unit(s) in the clear hexes, but either way, that was my last AP for Turn 3.

On to 4!

DONE!
49 1/17/2020 10:43:00 AM Turn 1 Pratik Message How was Disneyland?
48 1/11/2020 12:31:00 AM Turn 1 Pratik Message DONE.

Sorry for delay. It is wife's birthday with assorted events taking place. In fact, I am taking off for Disneyland as soon as I send this, will be back Tuesday morning. NOT taking laptop with me!

Target concrete building.

DONE
44 1/9/2020 6:04:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message Yeah, I figured the shooting wouldn't start right away.

No one else
43 1/9/2020 5:48:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message 9 Kilo Seven, eh? Considering that movement is blocked between Kilo Seven and Kilo One, that means you moved 2 hexes in the open and entered thru the door in Kilo Five, very brave.

I am doing a Sight action on 9 Kilo, +20DRM for the guys that just fired, base die roll was 56, so besides 9 Kilo Seven, anybody else hiding out?
42 1/9/2020 2:38:00 PM Turn 1 Pratik Message No effect, unless your unit was using Bold movement, in which case my attack strength would be 14 and it would be a K result.

Fire strength 7 (would be doubled if your unit is using Bold movement)

39 1/9/2020 12:57:00 PM Turn 1 Ron Message Never got a DONE from you last night so I've been waiting to see if you're using an immediate Fire action after the successful Sight.

Going out for errands, but I'll be back in a few hours.
