72 1/13/2020 5:06:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message We should probably just start over. You can set it up at your convenience.

Thanks. And I learned a valuable lesson.
71 1/13/2020 5:00:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Return Strategy card to hand #14: 5 / Lend-Lease

Message from Allied:
70 1/13/2020 11:31:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Your choice on how to proceed. But if you start over I will just tell you where i have a Cc to use or not.

Thanks.
69 1/13/2020 8:33:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message I am real busy today into the evening. I can reset back or start a new game late tonight or tomorrow morning.
68 1/13/2020 8:31:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Soviet play the first three turns in this game requires a lot of care.
67 1/13/2020 8:28:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Allied 1-6 setting up the Odessa flanking maneuver is where you really messed up. Kiev instead of Zhitomir for SWM and I would move Pinsk instead of Tarnopol.
66 1/13/2020 8:27:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Allied 1-6 setting up the Odessa flanking maneuver is where you really messed up. Either Kiev instead of Zhitomir for SWM and I would move Pinsk instead of Tarnopol.
65 1/13/2020 1:42:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Instead of starting over, why don't we just reset to 2-1?
64 1/13/2020 1:36:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Done for the night.
63 1/13/2020 1:17:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message This time, since you have your standard opening you can just name the objective of the attack and roll.
62 1/13/2020 1:05:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 5 / Lend-Lease

5/ STH to Kharkov

Anytime you want to start over...
61 1/13/2020 12:52:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Stalin is a little concerned now. Beria has just been taken out back and shot as a precaution.
60 1/13/2020 12:45:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Big wedge pointed at Moscow - does Stalin believe now?
59 1/13/2020 12:44:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Play Strategy card as Operations #6: 4 / Panzer Refit
Flip any 3 reduced strength Pz units (Army or corps) to their unreduced sides. No space containing an affected Pz unit may be activated this round. PREREQ: May not be played during Spring Thaw.

Message from Axis:
Move Tarnow: (GE2) to Tarnopol passing through Lwow taking out the trench 2; GE17 and PZc to Zhitomir.

Move Minsk: PZ2 to Orsha.

Combat Orsha: PZ2 and GE16 attack SUa in Smolensk. Automatic win without loss. GE16 advances in, PZ2 remains.

Combat Vitebsk: PZ3 and GE18 attack SUa in Velikiye Luki. Automatic win without loss. GE18 advances into Velikiye Luki. PZ3 advances to Vyazma.

Threat again on Moscow.

Supply threat on Roslav, Chernigov, Kiev, Cherkassi, and Uman.

Pinsk is OOS again.
58 1/13/2020 12:35:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Damn. I thought they were perm elim for being OOS.
57 1/13/2020 12:34:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Change Victory Points -1: from 9 to 8
Message from Axis:
Kiev
56 1/13/2020 12:33:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message adv
55 1/13/2020 12:33:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message 4/3

Kiev: PZ1 to turn track, rebuildable on turn 6.

PZc from RB to EB, RB now <3,0>.

Zhitomir: SWM flips. Assume advances into Kiev (must stop as it is not treated as mechanized since it was OOS).

Message from Axis:
5/ Attack Kiev, 3 v 4
53 1/13/2020 12:25:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message 2-1

1/ STH to Cherkassi. SF lifted.
2/ Vinnitsa OOS SUa to Uman, back in supply.
3/ CEN to Chernigov
4/ RES to R-Y
5/ Attack Kiev, 3 v 4

Lose this roll & we will be starting over. Win this roll and we still may be starting over.
52 1/13/2020 12:04:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Also, OOS units do not qualify for combat cards.
51 1/13/2020 12:02:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Correct:

I think it will be 3 v 4

SWM OOS = 4, attacking urban = 3

PZ1 OOS = 4
50 1/12/2020 11:58:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message I think it will be 3 v 4

SWM OOS = 4, attacking urban = 3

PZ1 OOS = 4
49 1/12/2020 11:46:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Kiev obviously.
48 1/12/2020 11:44:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message An attack from Zhitomir to Kursk 4 v 5, if PZ1 is OOS?
47 1/12/2020 11:37:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message So movement could cut Kiev's supply, but not restore Zhitomir's supply. Thus SW could only attack a 3L vs 4L.
46 1/12/2020 11:36:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Reminder: Active player's supply is determined before any movement. Defending player's supply is determined at the instant of combat. So you cannot regain supply this action for combat.
45 1/12/2020 11:32:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Saving SU South is better, they can reach Kirovograd or or Cherkassi to help form a line in the south.
44 1/12/2020 11:31:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Yes Tarnopol is empty except for the axis control marker. Zhitomir can move there, but remember, OOS movement is 2 spaces.
43 1/12/2020 11:30:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message STalin being Stalin does not believe you. We are staying.
42 1/12/2020 11:28:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Message form Winston Churchhill to Joseph Stalin - prepare to defend or evacuate Moscow. Our intelligence indicates the main German thrust in that direction.

Message from Axis:
Axis First - hint never move SUa in Tarnopol the first turn.

Move Kaunas: GE9 to Bobruisk; GE16 to Orsha; GE18 to Vitebsk.

Combat Dvinsk: PZ3 and PZ4 attack SUa in Pskov. Automatic win without loss. PZ4 advances into Pskov passing through Riga; PZ3 advances to Vitebsk.

Combat Galatz: RO4 and PZ1 attack SUa in Odessa. 6L vs 2s becomes 5L vs 2s after Urban adjustment. RO4 might flip and advances into Odessa. PZ1 advances to Kiev passing through Uman.

Pinsk, Zhitomir Vinnisa and Kishinev are OOS. Note Kishinev can escape SF without penalty by moving to Uman first.

33 1/12/2020 11:08:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message None and Stalin Orders.

Stand Fast on Kishinev, Pinsk, and Kolmyja.

3/ Vitebsk SUa to V-L
4/ Riga SUa to Valdai
16 1/12/2020 10:51:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message That was a stupid question. Of course it was Kovel.
15 1/12/2020 10:51:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Hopefully, you have a 5 OP card this time around 4 OPs is a challenge.
14 1/12/2020 10:48:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message NW elim, SUa to rtr to Pskov

RB 4/
13 1/12/2020 10:48:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Combat Lublin: GE6 attacks SUa in Lublin. 5L+1 vs 2S. Automatic win without loss, GE6 advances in.

"+1DRM" for Su Offensive or Def fire.

Message from Allied:
Combat Memel: GE16 and GE18 also attack Kaunas. 15L+1 vs 3L.
10 1/12/2020 10:47:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Mulligan: If the Allies discard down to 0 or 1 cards at the end of the first turn, then they may on Turn 2 play a 3 OP or better card as OPs and treat it as if card #24 (3 fronts card) was played as an event (no OPs). If they hold or draw a reinforcement card, then they can just play the reinforcement card if they wish instead of using the Mulligan substitution. If a proxy is payed, when card 24 is drawn on a future turn after turn 2, it is immediately played as an event and replaced.

I guess the Allies could play a proxy for card #24 on turn 2 even if they draw card #2 (four SU fronts), but I think it is better to have four fronts the second turn than three fronts.
9 1/12/2020 10:44:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message I assume Kovel.
8 1/12/2020 10:43:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message Combat Lublin: GE6 attacks SUa in Lublin. 5L+1 vs 2S. Automatic win without loss, GE6 advances in.

6 1/12/2020 10:39:00 PM June 1941 Axis Play Strategy card as Event #1: 5 / Barbarossa
Axis places 5 Combat markers in any axis ocupied spaces (include. Multi-nationality spaces). +1 DRM for all Ge attack vs. Su this round. Cancels Su Trench No Retreat option & Def 1R effect for entire turn. PREREQ: Play on Turn 1 only. May not play if Von Paulus Pause has been played.

Message from Axis:
Axis First Turn

Combat Yassi: (GE11) attacks SUa in Chernovitsi. 3L+1 vs 2S. Automatic win without loss. (GE11) advances in.

Combat Lublin: GE6 attacks SUa in Lublin. 5L+1 vs 2S. Automatic win without loss, GE6 advances in.

Combat Warsaw: PZ2 and GE4, not GEc, attack SUa in Brest Litovsk. Automatic win, 6L+1 vs 2S. GE4 advances in. PZ2 advances to Minsk passing through Baronavich.

Combat Insterberg: GE9 and PZ3 attack SU Northwest in Kaunas.

Combat Memel: GE16 and GE18 also attack Kaunas. 15L+1 vs 3L. Loss on GE9. GE9, GE16, and GE18 advance into Kaunas assuming you retreat to Pskov via Riga. PZ3 advances into Dvinsk passing through Vilna. Bialystok should be out of supply. If by chance the result is 5/4 you will be forced to retreat differently and I will have to advance differently.

Combat Memel (last to resolve): PZ4 attacks SUa in Courland and advances to Dvinsk with same assumptions as above. 5L+1 vs 2S.
