62 1/19/2020 5:55:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message There are two French armies in Paris the one that started and the one that moved from bar le duc
Sorry for confusion
My second activation will be corps from Grenoble to Dijon
61 1/17/2020 7:15:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message There is nothing to be gained by moving those 2 FRc to Paris. If I was you I would move one of the FRc to Melun which blocks the whole in your line otherwise the whole of the maginot line is in danger of being caught out of supply and eliminated. With the other op I would attack Metz from Verdun. It's not an attack I would normally do but you need to make your MO otherwise you lose a VP.
60 1/16/2020 11:47:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Both of my flip cores are in Paris now as of this movement any suggestions for what my other activation should be

Message from Allies:
32 1/14/2020 9:04:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Yes I didnít sleep much last night but I did read about war status and many other things
31 1/14/2020 8:17:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message War status is a big thing in PoG as getting to Limited War then Total War gives you better cards. Also always make your MO (Mandated Offensive) as missing it gives your opponent a VP.
30 1/14/2020 7:56:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message MO's

28 1/14/2020 5:02:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Was thinking of playing the same two card activating Brussels moving the Belgium Army with the BEF

Second activation I was thinking of either activating the French space Grenoble and marching the French core to Mehin
Iím still trying to figure out the supply and not getting cut off I donít know if that move helps or does it make more sense to move the second army into Paris???

Donít worry eventually I will be able to give you a really good game
27 1/14/2020 4:38:00 AM August 1914 Allies Return Strategy card to hand #5: 2 / Putnik

Message from Allies:
26 1/14/2020 3:52:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message if you have a mixed nationality attack then you need at least one space which contains both units. You can't attack Sedan from Brussels and Verdun as Brussels only has British and Verdun only has French.
25 1/14/2020 3:47:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message I probably shouldíve said I was attacking sedan

May only be played in 1914 and 1915. SB units get a +1 drm for an attack or defense.

Message from Allies:
Activate Metz and Brussels Attempt flanking attack plus one because BEF is not adjacent to any bad guys besides the attacked unit
22 1/14/2020 3:44:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message sometimes better to hold on to it as threat is more powerful.
21 1/14/2020 3:40:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Good morning

18 1/14/2020 3:39:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Yes, no problem. I was going to mention it this morning.
17 1/14/2020 2:04:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Well I figured out what I did wrong with the withdrawal card I need it to play it right after the Flank die roll If you cut me some slack
I wouldíve done that had I known it had to be played at that time

I did remember something about that from when I used to play seven or eight years ago
I donít mind reading the rules there well written

16 1/13/2020 7:35:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #9: 3 / Moltke
May only be played in August or September 1914. CP Activation in Belgium or France costs 1 OPS per unit (not space) until the "Falkenhayn" card is played. All units must be activated in a space. Supersedes Sud Army and Eleventh army card effects.

Message from Allies:
15 1/13/2020 7:35:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I guess play the retreat card or withdrawal card and retreat to Verdun
14 1/13/2020 7:01:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Would it be smarter to retreat to verdun?
13 1/13/2020 6:59:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Combat #6: 2 / Withdrawal
Defending units negate one required Corps step loss and instead must retreat 1 space. Full strength Attacking units may advance. If no Corps step(s) lost, an Army step loss may be negated. See rule 12.6 for details.

Message from Allies:
Event
Negate 5th army loss
Retreat to Thierry

I think this works
12 1/13/2020 6:51:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message You can cancel the retreat by becoming a Corp but You are better off retreating two spaces to Melun. All three German armies will advance to Sedan.
11 1/13/2020 6:49:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message So I believe I flip the fifth army incident and do I have to retreat also?
