47 1/13/2020 4:44:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message 11.1.9 Amiens, Calais & Ostend: Until either the Race to the Sea Event Card is played or the CP War Status is 4 or higher, Central Powers units may neither end their move nor SR into Amiens, Calais, or Ostend, except as a result of advance after combat. However they may move through and place control markers on these spaces.

Place a Level 1 Trench (not improve a Level 1 to Level 2) in any space occupied by a supplied friendly Army. Both players may now entrench. Only one player may play this card as an event.

Message from Central Powers:
This will probably be a short game

Entrance level one sedan
39 1/13/2020 12:42:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message away for a while
38 1/13/2020 12:37:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message You could attack Paris but you can't flank attack as I have a trench there. You are really strung out but you could sr some corps in. I will be looking to trap a few armies OOS.
37 1/13/2020 12:28:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message So do u think I should strategically deploy or launch a flank attack on Paris?
36 1/13/2020 10:51:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Reserve Box - I am doing a strategic deployment from the reserve box to the map
35 1/13/2020 10:42:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message What does RB mean?
34 1/13/2020 10:33:00 AM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Strategic Redeployment #10: 3 / French Reinforcements (10th Army)

A Flank Attack Attempt involving at least one German unit (army or corps) vs. a space containing only RU units is automatically successful.

Message from Central Powers:

32 1/13/2020 8:49:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Return Strategy card to hand #14: 4 / Austria - Hungary Reinforcements (7th Army)

Message from Central Powers:
31 1/13/2020 8:08:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message you still have 2ops you can use as that only cost 2 ops.
30 1/13/2020 8:08:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message The von schlifilen plan in all it glory
29 1/13/2020 8:06:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message That is interesting. Lets see how this plays out then :)
28 1/13/2020 7:57:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Sorry Amiens
27 1/13/2020 7:55:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message There is no Ardennes space on the map. Which spaces is it next to?

I would keep my armies together at this point as they pack more of a punch when combined.
26 1/13/2020 7:51:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message To Ardennes to keep sully line open?

What would u do at this point?
25 1/13/2020 7:48:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message I presume 2nd army is going to Antwerp not Ardennes.

I don't think that is a good idea. The supply rules in this game are brutal. The GE2 in Antwerp and the GE1 in Rouen are easy to cut off with the BEF and BE1 in Ostend. Once they are cut off you can't activate them.
Plus you only need 2 ops to do that move.
24 1/13/2020 7:37:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message 1st army to Rouen
2nd armies to Ardennes
3 Army to Cambrai
4 Army to sedan
23 1/13/2020 7:32:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message 1st, 2nd and 3rd are all in Sedan. They advanced there after kicking the French 5th out.
4th and 5th are in Metz.
6th in Strasbourg
(7th) in Mulhouse.
22 1/13/2020 6:57:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 4 / Austria - Hungary Reinforcements (7th Army)

3 4th army from sedan to Rouen
4 corps from Berlin to sedan
21 1/13/2020 6:37:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Return Strategy card to hand #13: 4 / Falkenhayn

Message from Central Powers:
20 1/13/2020 6:33:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Couple of things

1. The activation cost per space not per unit (there are exceptions but they don't apply here) so that attack only requires 2 ops.

2. It's better to let the defender resolve any attacks as it allows them to play any combat cards plus also validates the odds (mistakes can happen)

3. The attack is 15 v 12. 16 is the highest attack factor which moves one space left because of the trench in Verdun. Mine is 9 which moves one space right because of the trench.

4. Whether it's a good idea or not depends on your overall strategy. A good tactic is to go after the French.

5. If you still want to proceed with that attack then I would advise using a different card. At least a 2ops or something similar. Keep Falkenhayn for the event or replacements.
