Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
300 3/29/2020 2:13:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message I love how many options and few resources one has. The trade offs are so stressful. But its fun.
299 3/29/2020 2:11:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message I was going to save a German Army Reinforcement card, so I would have gotten another German Army next turn.
298 3/29/2020 2:10:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message It is a very intense and fun game.

I will set the new game up.
297 3/29/2020 2:08:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message I'll take allies again to try to improve on my tactics. What a game thou. You can live inside it for days on end. Lets start the next one tomorrow.
296 3/29/2020 2:06:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Which side do you want?
295 3/29/2020 2:04:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message It was a good move on your part. I was protecting elsewhere because of my wrong placement of your armies, otherwise i would've repositioned some armies north. Will have to be more careful next time.
Yes, you definitely have to pace yourself in this game. The itch is to rush forwards and gain as much ground before frontlines solidify, but this game is a marathon, not a sprint. That's how Russia lost the war. Learned that now.
The entrenchment rolls thou are very annoying. A right trench at the right time can really swing the game.
294 3/29/2020 1:59:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Well, the intent of my turn was to wait and knowing how aggressive you are, put you in a position where you couldn't take replacements this turn.

Do you want to play the same sides or switch?
293 3/29/2020 1:57:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message I see. I messed up and placed your armies wrong. Well, this is it. Messed up my plans and put me in a bad situation. My mistake of course, but the writing is now on the wall. Your victory. Allies surrender. I'd like to do this again thou, now that i know the basic mechanics.
292 3/29/2020 1:53:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message 2 German Armies, 2nd & 10th ...see move #284.

290 3/29/2020 1:46:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #10: 3 / SUD Army
One AH unit and up to 2 GE corps may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. A different stack may be chosen each Action Round. If a second AH unit or a second non-GE corps unit is present, then the activation cost is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.

Message from Allies:
Liege trench attempt
273 3/29/2020 12:36:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Rule # 1 of this game is you can never do all that you want to do.

Rule #2 is to play at a high level, you must be efficient in your moves.

Also keep in mind that this is a 20 turn game. You are really aggressive, sometimes that works out, sometimes it can hurt you.

Finally, Wow! You got both your 5 Ops card in the first turn of Limited War. But by playing them both already, I know my AH is safe for awhile from the Italian threat.

Make your trench roll.


272 3/29/2020 12:28:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #17: 5 / Italy
Italy joins the Allies. Add 1 VP during the War Status Phase of each turn if unplayed after the Allied War Commitment Level is Total War. See also 9.5.2.5 for restrictions on play as a non-event when CP are at TW.

Tannenberg units attack Kroningberg
If i'm not mistaking, I fire on a 4 army column because of the trench

*In Brussels, at 2 activation points, the 9th French army moves to Verdun and the BEF goes to Sedan. Where it meets the 4th British army that travelled from *London.
*In Leige, the French armies attempt to entrench.
271 3/29/2020 12:21:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Maybe my biggest mistake in the game was to mix British and French forces early on. That got them languishing in the rear guard at double activation costs and i was never able to really bring the Brits properly into the game.
270 3/29/2020 12:06:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #26: 4 / Place of Execution
