59 4/1/2020 4:25:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Ok, I think I am done. New file over to you.
58 4/1/2020 11:54:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Log completed and deposited. Let me know what you think re 1603.
Other than that, over to you to complete your Allied turn.
57 4/1/2020 11:51:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message So that determined defense roll was not successful... what exactly does that mean? That I must retreat? But I can't really I think, so does that mean the unit is eliminated anyway? Not sure on the rules here.

Message from Germans:
If my retreat from 1603 was not legal, then here is my determined defense die roll.

Dice in the following order

1 Hex 5222 @ 6-1
2 Hex 4920 @ 3-1
3 Hex 3409 @ 5-1
4 Hex 2106 @ 4-1
5 Hex 2107 @ 3-1
6 Hex 1603 @ 4-1
7 Hex 1408 @ 3-1
53 3/31/2020 3:54:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Combat file online. Here are the seven battles:

1 Hex 5222= 8-2 (defense doubled) + 2 morale shifts = 6-1
2 Hex 4920= 4-2 + morale = 3-1
3 Hex 3409 = 4-1 + morale = 5-1
4 Hex 2106 = 26-10 (doubled on defense) + armor + arty in hex 1404 = 4-1
5 Hex 2107 = 8-2 - armor shift on defense = 3-1
6 Hex 1603 = 20-5 = 4-1
7 Hex 1408 = 14-5 (halved across canal) + arty (hex 1007) = 3-1
52 3/31/2020 3:27:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message All seems fine; proceed.
51 3/31/2020 3:10:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message New file with moves. Only one alteration. 8th bridging unit moves to hex 1906

50 3/31/2020 1:15:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message And yes it's fine with me that we do the short scenario. I see this as getting my feet wet, figuring out how the game works.
49 3/31/2020 12:05:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Looks fine! The only correction I see is that you flipped your 1st AB arty (hex 6317) to its fired side, it should be flipped back to its unfired side.
48 3/31/2020 11:08:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Happy Tuesday! I have a new file for you. It covers the start of turn 2. If you agree with it, I will start moves today.
47 3/29/2020 10:08:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Re 1404, I wasn't sure which armor unit should be at 1504, so I'll leave that to you.

Over to Allies.
46 3/29/2020 10:02:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message So the Arty and Jenkel units arrive.

44 3/29/2020 10:00:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Thanks, I'd missed those rules ... hadn't made it that far yet in rulebook ...

Will roll for 406 Div.
43 3/29/2020 11:48:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Ok I reviewed your file. Two changes I see.

1) The Germans cannot move the units at Tiel or Hertogenbosch until the Allies are within 2 hexes (see 23.6)

2) You did not roll for the 406th Division (see rule 23.5). Would you like to bring them onboard this turn?

Please let me know...
42 3/29/2020 11:32:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message That is kind of you but it helps me to learn a rule by losing steps here. I will not do that again. :-)

For hex 1401 though, I had put a note in the file (see #27 (3/26/2020 8:33:00 PM Turn 1 Allies message) where I wrote "One file correction - the armor unit at 1404 should be at 1504 with the bridging unit. Would you pls make the change in your upcoming file?"

So that one I will move to the correct hex. Reviewing the rest of your file now.
41 3/28/2020 11:42:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message I don't mind if you just leave one unit behind the canal instead of eliminating it b/c of a rule misunderstanding. Not trying to be draconian here :)
40 3/28/2020 11:41:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message I will eliminate steps with my next file. Good learning point.
39 3/28/2020 11:40:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message I have to admit I am confused by this rule as well. I seem to have overlooked 6.4.1 and only seemed to have read 6.4.2 which said only a certain number of steps can participate in combat.
38 3/28/2020 11:21:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message I'm a bit confused by the overstacking rule in general. If there is a stacking limit, why should you be allowed to overstack any way?
37 3/28/2020 11:19:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message 1404 has 10 steps.
36 3/28/2020 11:19:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Question about hex 1501. You've overstacked there and have 12 steps there. Shouldn't 3 steps have been eliminated at the end of your combat phase? 6.4.1. Just wondering how this work.
35 3/28/2020 10:59:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message wow lots of bad luck ... lol

Filed deposited. Finished German turn 1. Hopefully I didn't make too many mistakes.
Actually just noticed one; forgot to remove disrupted marker at 4920. Would you be so kind? Thanks!

30 3/26/2020 10:33:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Sorry I should have kept reading the rule ... ignore what I just said.
29 3/26/2020 10:28:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message So bridge 5118 is blown.

Re the combat at 4922, you follow up with breakthrough combat with the two attacking stacks but the rules state 16.2, first sentence) you can only do it with one stack. So don't you need to redo or reassess that?

Trying to blow bridge 5118.
27 3/26/2020 8:33:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message One file correction - the armor unit at 1404 should be at 1504 with the bridging unit. Would you pls make the change in your upcoming file?
26 3/26/2020 6:48:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message A new file awaits.

It seems we had several lorries collide and foul things up on the main road. No matter, we are engaging Jerry along a narrow front and the lads made two daring canal crossings.

You have two bridge decisions then you get to take over the action!

Now you can do your advances, etc.

22 3/25/2020 1:24:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message I missed that your file had been deposited already yesterday morning. Hope to do my retreats today.
Can I do them as I go through your combats, starting a new log file?
21 3/25/2020 1:11:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Sorry I may have missed it - yesterday was busy at work - please let me know when you are ready for me to finish up my turn. I think you had some retreats to finish.

No worries if you have not done so just want to make I am not missing something.
20 3/24/2020 1:38:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Sounds good
19 3/24/2020 11:43:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Here are results:

DMR* = You must retreat 2-3 hexes and I can do a breakthrough combat

DR** = you can retreat, become disrupted or do a determined defense

How about I put this into the file and you can see it / decide?

14 3/23/2020 9:15:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message I went ahead and revealed units / calculated odds. The file is a wall of words so here is the condensed list:

Hex 6319 = 15-5 + Morale shift + arty = 5-1
Hex 4922 = 8-2 + morale shift = 5-1
Hex 4712 = 4-2 + morale shift = 3-1
Hex 4712 = 6-2 (my unit across the bridge is halved) + morale = 4-1
Hex 3806 = 3-2 + morale = 2-1
Hex 3507= 4-2 + morale shift = 3-1
Hex 1501= 4 units attacking half strength (rounded up) = 12-5 + I will add arty (1st turn double shift) = 4-1
Hex 1603 = 10-4 (vehicles halved in ponder) + an air + armor = 4-1
Hex1605 = 22-5 + armor shift + arty = 7-1
Hex 1406 = two units halved (one across canal, one a vehicle) 12-5 + armor + air =4-1


I will not start rolling dice until I get the all clear signal from you.
13 3/23/2020 8:40:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Yes - unless I try when moving (have not yet). A new file awaits. All moves are done. The battles are about to start!
12 3/23/2020 7:03:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Seems to all be fine. I assume you reveal the German units when you do combat.
11 3/23/2020 3:41:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Ok, I finished the moves of the 82nd. Over to you to check for rules errors and then to the 101
10 3/23/2020 12:09:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message The German bridge charges malfunctioned for the most part. Only 4820 bridge is blown. File deposited.

8 3/20/2020 8:42:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message There are a lot of bridges, so I think I would want to decide that on a case by case basis.

Trying to find where in the rules it says that most of the bridges along the Bocholt Herentals Canal are blown. Do you know where that is?

Yes I would want to try and blow up the bridge by hex 6120.

Here goes! Need 3-6 to blow up
6 3/20/2020 3:33:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Question for you when you feel better...as I move, do you want me to assume you are trying to blow the bridge (or do you want a case-by-case decision)?
5 3/19/2020 12:03:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message 3708 and 3206 have S1 (scattered and lose a step). Recording two AB replacements. I will place a new file online and work on moves to send by Friday. Cheers!
