174 3/31/2020 10:19:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message OK please send your polish setup, then Axis then Allies the we do DP.
173 3/31/2020 10:17:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message
172 3/31/2020 10:16:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message We can restart with you Axis again if you prefer.
171 3/31/2020 10:16:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Okay, well it was interesting. I guess the biggest blow was Russia jumping in.
170 3/31/2020 9:06:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message having learned the rules the hard way one turn after I should I would like another go at the Germans.
169 3/31/2020 9:03:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message If you play it correctly I will have scant places to even build
168 3/31/2020 9:02:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message That is what I was seeing, I think my chances are slim to none .
167 3/31/2020 8:56:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message I just found another rule - 40.1. If I split my two exploiting armor units, I can take Bonn and Essen without opposition and cost you 25 BRPs immediately. Perhaps that was part of your view of the game when you were proposing to resign. Still your call, but that would make your rebuilding that much harder. Shall I finish my turn?
166 3/31/2020 8:09:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Decision to resign yours of course. Since you seem undecided, I will finish my turn.
165 3/31/2020 8:08:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Please see ACTS record. The air combat was resolved with die rolls of 2 for me and 6 for you. Result was that my whole force was KIA and you lost 2 factors with the 3 survivors inverted. The ground combat itself was a DR6.
164 3/31/2020 6:00:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Please resolve my DAS
163 3/31/2020 5:58:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message
162 3/31/2020 5:58:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Up to you If you think it is worth playing out I will continue.
161 3/31/2020 5:55:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Are you sure you want to resign? The armies on either side of you all lack offensive punch, and you have the BRPs to construct a lot of units quickly.
160 3/31/2020 9:17:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message This as certainly been a learning curve getting back into this game after so long.
159 3/31/2020 9:16:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message Yes in this case the odds would tell me but it always isn't as clear. Also please mark you controlled hexes the Russians moved thru that are not obvious beyond the front.
158 3/31/2020 9:08:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message I also note your e-mail about specifying my attackers. I think it is clear which units are attacking - all those adjacent to your armor unit. I do appreciate that, given your view of the odds, you were offering for me to reduce my exposure. But the gesture is not needed; please see my earlier comments on this subject.
157 3/31/2020 7:56:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message I wondered why you launched defensive air given the situation; now I understand that you had not noted my comment about 49.1 in my turn. This is a friendly game, so if you would prefer to undo your attempt at defensive air support, rather than keep the result that occurred, okay with me.
156 3/31/2020 6:55:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message I saw your e-mail saying French and Brits can't mix. Per 49.1, starting this turn, yes they can.
155 3/30/2020 10:17:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Please specify the Units attacking at least by the raw factors, you are not required to attack with all factors as I have air surviving that lower the odds you risk losings all if you rolled a 5, which if you had you would be in the right to redo, so I ask for you to announce the ground units attacking and redo.
154 3/30/2020 10:14:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message you can not do that French and British can not mix
Only French can intercept because there is a French air unit in the hex,
153 3/30/2020 9:22:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Attrition result DR3 - 1 counter 1 hex. Please specify a unit to be removed.
152 3/30/2020 9:20:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Allies:
Russian attrition in the east. 19 factors in contact.
151 3/30/2020 9:19:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Result defender eliminated.

Message from Allies:

149 3/30/2020 9:17:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Ouch. Difference is 5 in your favor. I lose all 5, you lose 2.

Message from Allies:
Air combat Allied roll (-1) then German
147 3/30/2020 9:13:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message 2 unused French air and 3 Brit air from Calais intercept the 5 German defensive air. All invert. I will resolve the air (-1 modifier for me) followed by the 2-1 combat.
146 3/30/2020 8:49:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message No naval interceptions 5 German Air Essen M27 DAS M26
145 3/30/2020 8:25:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Since you are still pondering your response to my move, please permit me to make a couple of fleet changes to my move. The Brit fleet in Gibraltar remains there, and a French fleet from North Africa joins it there. Will send revised file. Thanks.
144 3/30/2020 3:13:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message that is what I remember!
143 3/30/2020 2:58:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Guess I'm okay as is. Found this in the Qs and As Word file:

13.11, 13.41B: Does an airdrop or entry into an enemy-controlled hex satisfy the requirements of an offensive option?

A: Yes. The list of activities in 13.11 is not exhaustive.

Since Russians are entering Axis-controlled hexes in western front, no attack needed.
142 3/30/2020 2:57:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message I do not think that is correct. if I remember correctly all you have to do is do something not allowed with a pass.
141 3/30/2020 2:53:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message I sent you my move, but just recalled that to take an offensive option, a MP must actually do an offensive action (attack). I may need to revise my move since no Russian attack currently happening; will ponder and let you know what I will do to remedy.
140 3/28/2020 11:11:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message Yes it slowly come back to me, the DP free is because of the flip flop, they didn't want Germany not to purchase what they would historically over concerns about BRPs.

Yes the new tension table has +2 per turn because US wasn't getting in until 1943
139 3/28/2020 11:04:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message In studying rule mods you sent me, I am learning some interesting stuff. First, I note the US/Axis tension table is superseded by one in the modified rules. Notable difference is that the automatic increase each turn is 2, not 1. I also note that the DP purchase rule is modified so that there is no BRP purchase cost to get the additional DPs. That does not really make sense to me, but that is what the document says.
138 3/27/2020 8:33:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message I discovered that I constructed one Russian armor and one 3-3 infantry in Winter 1939 that is not in the 1939 pool. I am removing them and replacing with four 2-3s and one 1-3, all of which I will place in Russia at start of 1940 turn, no SR from previous turn. Sorry for my unintentional mistake.
137 3/26/2020 10:23:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message I declare no DP rolls , your play
136 3/26/2020 9:55:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message I have no diplomatic rolls in spring 40.
135 3/26/2020 9:52:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Sent you hopefully final YSS logfile. By my calculation, I have the initiative and will move first in spring 40. If you disagree, please advise.
134 3/26/2020 6:39:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Please send revised logfile reflecting reduced DP purchases. Thanks
133 3/26/2020 2:20:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message I am suspending sub warfare.
132 3/26/2020 2:18:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Bad memory I thought is was 1 for each 50 So I have two less, will decide what to short
131 3/26/2020 1:44:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Since you have revealed that you have no SW buys in the YSS, are you making a public announcement invoking 42.43 regarding suspending sub warfare for all of 1940? It would seem to be to your advantage to do so if not buying subs.
130 3/26/2020 1:35:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Your email conveying YSS shows 3 DP buys for Germans and 1 for Italians. 59.11 says each MP may spend 5 BRPs for each 100 BRPs available to it. Rule does not say whether to round up or down; I assumed down so bought 1 for Brits and zero for French since they have less than 100 available. If you round down consistent with what I did, Germans can buy 2 DPs, Italians none. We should obviously do this consistently - I suggest rounding down. If you wish to round up, I will need to revise my DP buys. Pls let me know how you wish to proceed.
129 3/23/2020 6:05:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Yes French started with 49, as I deleted BRPs last turn to that level to avoid taking a double turn. This turn, 15 for offensive option, 25 for opening Persian route to Russia. Leaves 9.
128 3/23/2020 5:44:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Yes. And Russians 115.
127 3/23/2020 5:36:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message So the Correct British YSS BRPs are 11x 40% = 4 +125 = 129
France 9 x 30% =3 =80 +15 = 3 = 98
126 3/23/2020 11:39:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message It is very hard to track BRPs in the lob files I suggest we do it here in addition I am trying to reconcile French having 9 BRP? They spent 40 and started the turn with 49?
125 3/23/2020 11:33:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message Ok what after the YSS just wanting to agree with the new BRP total at YSS
124 3/23/2020 11:03:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message The YSS logfile is correct on BRPs at year end. Brits 11, French 9, Russians zero.
123 3/23/2020 10:02:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message After all the adjustment what do you have for French and British BRPs?
122 3/23/2020 10:01:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message This works. I will do my YSS and send it this evening.
121 3/23/2020 9:56:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message No reply received yet to my question on how to do YSS. I will go ahead and send my logfile. If you prefer a different approach to doing YSS, please delete that e-mail without opening the logfile and let me know how you wish to handle.
120 3/21/2020 9:41:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message For YSS, I did a logfile for SW and DPs. Used delayed messages. Suggest you add to that logfile and then we release the SW expenditures. Okay plan, or better way to do this?
119 3/21/2020 8:06:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message We are supposed to keep score on US/German tension, right? Att end of 1939, I count it as:

+2 for game turns, +2 for Axis move first, +2 for Axis offensive options, +1 for DoW on Benelux, +1 for Poland, +1 for Denmark, -2 for Russia DoW on Germany, -1 for Russia DoW against Baltic States, -1 for Russia occupying Eastern Poland. Net +5. Correct?
118 3/20/2020 12:27:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message On to SW and Diplomacy
117 3/20/2020 11:18:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message Even though we are both using same roller, given the result, I am glad you and not I rolled that. Some AH games include a reroll to address low-odds bad result; too bad this one does not.
116 3/20/2020 10:53:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message my luck goes thru again!
115 3/20/2020 10:53:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Axis:
intercept range 8 1-5 good
114 3/20/2020 9:39:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message Should you succeed in intercepting, French air will attack you on hex just east of Portsmouth. Please roll for air defense, after which I will roll for the air attack.
113 3/20/2020 9:34:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message So first step is to roll for your ability to intercept, yes? I assume you will roll that.
112 3/20/2020 9:06:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message 8hex distance move along the south coast of England
111 3/20/2020 8:18:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message Okay. The armor is picked up in Plymouth and carried directly to Cherbourg. Please specify your intercepting route, as there is an unused French air unit available to attack your fleets.
110 3/19/2020 10:49:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Germany will intercept the 3 fleets carrying armor to France
109 3/19/2020 10:31:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message British SR: 4 fleets leave Rosyth escorting one infantry unit. Go around north coast of Britain and west of Ireland. Near southwest coast of Britain they part. One fleet carries the infantry to Gibraltar and remains there. The fleet already in Gibraltar picks up the infantry and takes it to Egypt. Three remaining fleets transport 2 armor units to France and then return to Rosyth. Total SRs: 2 fleets, 2 armor units, 1 infantry unit, 2 units in Egypt that move around, 2 air units to France. Total 9.
108 3/19/2020 6:33:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message When I did V4 I guess I forgot to advance V3 to the end first, so the V3 changes did not make V4. I am sending you a new V4 which I verified have both French and British adjustments.
107 3/19/2020 6:20:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Start again at end of you play please.
106 3/19/2020 6:19:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message It is best if you state what you are building and what units and fleet are SRing which units really hard to follow
You have two unbuild British 3x Infantry units so you need to do SR again because they could not be rebuilt this turn
105 3/19/2020 1:30:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message we got diplomacy expenditures and SW
104 3/19/2020 12:09:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Darn, screwed that up too. Okay, left the two infantries in the pool. Sending new logfile. Hope okay finally. Sorry about that.
103 3/19/2020 9:33:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message you spent 44 BRPs by France with limit of 40?
102 3/19/2020 9:28:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message sorry you did send the file

So recap France 15 for Offensive +25 for LL + ? for builds?
101 3/19/2020 9:25:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message so please send new file on British builds and BRPs
100 3/19/2020 9:10:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message Good catch - sorry I missed that. I also forgot to do another thing in unit construction and would appreciate your accommodating this late change - French spend the 25 BRP per 38.2 to open Persia BRP route to Russia. That will leave French with 5 BRP.
99 3/18/2020 11:02:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Did you rebuild the voluntary eliminated units? They could not be rebuilt on this turn.
98 3/18/2020 9:51:00 PM Turn 2 Allies End Turn
97 3/18/2020 9:49:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message Now year end, right? I get following BRP totals at start 1940: Germans 215, Italians 81, Brits 128, French 104 (both France and Germany get 15 BRPs for Belgium per 54.31), Russia 115. Total Allies 347, Axis 296. Do you agree?
96 3/18/2020 9:43:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message I forgot to put unit const totals in Logfile. Brits built all except the two remaining fleets, including rebuilding the 1-factor air loss from your turn, and the 5-factor air loss also from your turn. Total of 58, leaving 5. Russia built an armor, a 3-3, and a 1-3, leaving zero. French built their 4 infantry available, leaving 30.
95 3/16/2020 11:06:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message 3x K37 and 2 Replacement in Prussia
94 3/16/2020 6:43:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message I took another look at this. The situation is dynamic, and there will be a double Allied turn with Russia in the war, so best if you go ahead and specify your 3 counters to remove on eastern front before I do my unit construction and SR. Would you please do that?
93 3/15/2020 5:24:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Not only that if I had not lost so much I could have put 10 more factors into the east.
92 3/15/2020 4:13:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message As an observation, I see your point about earlier losses. Those allowed my counterattack this turn. And my luck on that counterattack was better than yours typically has been.
91 3/15/2020 2:18:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message Result 3C. Since no hexes need be vacated, I will proceed with turn and you can remove counters afterwards.
90 3/15/2020 2:16:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Allies:
Russian attrition, 31-40.

Message from Allies:
CA at Brussels, 8-18, which I think is rounded to 1-3 per the examples in rule 15.38.

Message from Allies:
1-1 attack on Brussells
85 3/15/2020 11:34:00 AM Turn 2 Axis Message OK proceed with combat
84 3/14/2020 3:37:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message Says in Logfile: French offensive, Brit pass in west, all pass in Med, Russians attrition in east and declare war on Germany.
83 3/14/2020 3:36:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message Will send Allied Winter 39 turn to you momentarily. French attack on Brussels - please advise whether your air unit will attempt defensive support.
82 3/13/2020 11:18:00 AM Turn 2 Axis Message you can DOW
81 3/13/2020 7:49:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message Not saying I would or would not do that - need to figure out whether it makes sense.
80 3/13/2020 7:49:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message The last sentence in 59.7 also can be interpreted to mean that the determination of required German garrison size is made immediately, before the Russian DoW phase. In other words, looks to me like Russia can declare war on Germany this turn. Do you agree?
79 3/13/2020 7:44:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message I looked in the errata/clarifications for whether Germans have a turn to get their force levels up to prevent Russian DoW after a diplomatic result arising from a Russian Reaction die roll and am surprised to find nothing. The last sentence in 58.24 and the last sentence in the example after 58.24 could be interpreted to say the determination is made right away once the diplomatic result occurs. This would seem a crucial point. Are you aware of a rule that addresses this?
78 3/13/2020 6:24:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message I see two messages from you in ACTS with no content. What does that mean?
77 3/12/2020 10:18:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message
76 3/12/2020 10:18:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message
