Message from Allies:

1201 5/4/2020 10:19:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message How about a1977 matchup

North Carolina vs UNC Charlotte

One has a 92 rating and one has a 91 rating

Iíll roll a die. Odd Iím North Carolina, even your North Carolina
1200 5/4/2020 9:05:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message No preferences
1199 5/4/2020 8:42:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message Ok great

Iím no expert but a couple of quick strategy points.

Give the offensive cards that raise a players level to A and B rated players whenever possible.

I typically use my coaches move early in the half.

Remember timeouts reroll all dice.

Any special teams, era, or teams you want to play with?

1198 5/4/2020 8:23:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message OK, I read the rules. And I tried to follow through a couple of games here on ACTS. I have a handle on the mechanics of the game. But I don't understand any of the strategy.

So, with that, I guess I am ready enough to start a game.
1197 5/3/2020 1:21:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message March Madness is a great game. Itís fun and light. The first thing you should know is that it is NOT a possession by possession game. It is a CDG game where you play offensive, defensive, and coaching cards which affect the scoring for the game.

If you go to the Vassal module they have the rules there. We are playing the advanced game. Donít bother with the basic game rules.

I can look through the b2b rules and cards today if you want to give that a try.
1196 5/3/2020 12:31:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Hmm, I have never played March Madness. I have played Statis-Pro Basketball many times back in the day, but never March Madness. I would be willing to give that a shot. However, I couldn't find a copy of the rules anywhere on BGG.

Since you know SS and PoG, BtB wouldn't be a problem at all. The only tough part is the card scripting, especially in the Total War Decks. You really need to know what cards are pre-req's for the big Event cards. I have always found that it is easier to play the Axis as opposed to the Allies. A newbie could lose the game as the Allied player in the first few Turns against an Axis player who knows what he's doing. But not the other way around.
1195 5/1/2020 11:29:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message Sure

Im up for

POG
Shifting Sands
Twilight Struggle
March Madness

If you want to work with me on B2B we can try that.

What would you like to play?

1194 5/1/2020 11:22:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Uhm, I OK with taking a break from this. I like that the game plays fast, and it's light. But I would be up for something a little more involved.

Is there anything else on ACTS you would be interested in playing?
1193 5/1/2020 11:10:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message Just saw your message

Cards lined up well for Germany this game.

I agree that you need to do more coordination with the Ent.

Did you want to switch sides and play again?


1192 5/1/2020 11:01:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message So do you have more RU attrition?

Over to France
1191 5/1/2020 11:00:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message I think I will just concede the game here.

This script is really tough to play as the Entente. When we played the first time, I had the physical game set-up and was able to look at the cards. I was better to coordinate my moves. This game, I just had the script, and it was tough to remember what cards the other powers were holding. You really need to coordinate the FR/IT moves with the US/UK moves.

It was easier to play the Central Powers with just the script. Really, only Germany matters. The AH/OT was just standard moves. They really didn't have too much coordination issues with Germany.
1190 5/1/2020 10:56:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Actually, I mis-read the card. So Russia got 4 cards worth of Attrition from that Event, and then another one with the black Attrition, for a total of 5.
1189 5/1/2020 10:52:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message Russia was hit with 4 cards of attrition
1188 5/1/2020 10:52:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Back to germany
1187 5/1/2020 10:49:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Russia only has three cards of Attrition, correct? I do the three cards, and the program keeps saying I need to discard more.
1186 5/1/2020 10:45:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message Germany discarded two more.

You have to have a unit adjacent to the power you want to attrit

1185 5/1/2020 10:43:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message The rulebook states you have to have an army adjacent to the power you want to hit with the attrition, but I could have sworn the Russian black attrition symbols only let me choose Germany.
1184 5/1/2020 10:40:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Also, I thought when the Attrition symbol was black, you could any power with Attrition. Every time I play a black attrition symbol, it only lets me choose Germany.
1183 5/1/2020 10:38:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message I hit Germany for 7 cards of Attrition.

On the UK turn one of the options is to remove a piece. Go ahead and do that for UKraine.
