251 10/21/2020 11:36:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message File up, a long slog for the Siberians to try to find the front lines, and Yudenich comes ashore.

243 10/14/2020 12:17:00 AM Turn 1 Greg - White Message The Yudster arrives in the west to take some pressure off the east? Perhaps not, but let's see what trouble he can cause...
242 10/14/2020 12:09:00 AM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Yikes, they have been lazing around all war and were not quite ready to spill blood I guess. Or according to the book I am reading (talking about Kolchak's coup right now) more likely the commanders sold all the supplies off, or at least those that were pilfered on the way forward. 3 to 3 Losses, I flip one and you flip and then restore one, no retreat.

239 10/10/2020 12:48:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Just moves, to reform my lines. File up.
238 10/8/2020 9:59:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message Just 1 cheap shot, then it's your turn, you have some OOS issues to deal with

237 10/7/2020 9:46:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message File up, just a innocent SR
236 10/2/2020 6:46:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message That works, who cares about VPs anyhow, we'll be doign good to finish without this game being engulfed in chrome and misplayed rules anyhow.
235 10/2/2020 5:37:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message aw cripes, forgot about that one as well, i'm drowning in chrome. How about I take the 2 VP for last turn, then draw one for this turn?

234 10/1/2020 11:56:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Think you have the other one that you didn't adhere to last turn as well, or you can just take the standard 2 VP hit for disregarding a IF chit?
233 10/1/2020 10:23:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message File up, i just realized i need to draw my infighting chit, will do it next AR

232 9/30/2020 12:02:00 AM Turn 1 Greg - White Message File up with my AR1
231 9/29/2020 3:18:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Yes, you are right, and I did bring that up! OK, will do my action today and get us rolling.
230 9/29/2020 2:22:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message i don't think i can control Findland until I play the R20 card, which i haven't yet, so i think the counter is still in 'red influence' status
229 9/29/2020 2:05:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Well, it seems very counter-intuitive that a faction's own army would serve as an army of occupation, but that's how it's written and looking through BGG, I see a few other questions about events that pull Ukraine away begin prevented if a Ukraine army is present. So yes, I think you are correct. I guess spending RS to pull those factions away is a waste unless the faction is empty of units. I picked the cards I did trying to hold onto Ukraine, and I think you spent influence there also to try to wrestle Ukraine and it was all pointless.... I do think you have control of Finland, now (and forever unless you move them all out) and can set up the units now before my first AR?
228 9/29/2020 9:29:00 AM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message file looked mostly good, but reading some rules

15.21
no FCM can move (by any mneans) if the controlling side has an army in that factions home region, means I keep all my Baltic states?
227 9/28/2020 6:37:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message File up, lots of math on a scratch paper to figure out the net effect. Please check my work.
226 9/28/2020 5:26:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message 2 card for White, 1 card value for Red, so diff of 1 with total value of 3 is 1 to the High (White)

For Red 2 White choice

For White 1 White Choice, 2 random

Red -1 VCs -1 In fighting
224 9/27/2020 11:57:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Need to read up on the RC rules, not certain if the ones in Archangel up north for example are now White when the Brits showed up there.
223 9/27/2020 11:52:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Revealed my cards, looks like a roll off for the Other. I notice the total RCs impact the roll, and I think we need to update our map to indicate who has what RCs, such as Riga RCs show neutral but should be red I think. Anyhow, had to go into work today for new residents moving in and about to watch the opener of Fargo on TV, so both worn out and ready to veg in front of the tube....will figure it out tomorrow.
222 9/27/2020 9:46:00 AM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message PC cards placed, file up

221 9/26/2020 1:49:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message OK, got my cards figured out, drew my IF chit and placed PCs. File up.
220 9/26/2020 12:03:00 AM Turn 1 Greg - White Message File up with my card draws, but I have to ponder the rules some more as the cards raise questions and confusion about what can happen when and where...but will get m political cards placed tomorrow.

Message from Ryan - Red:
die of IPs on Republics

215 9/20/2020 9:46:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message I didn't see it there either, perhaps I messed up,. but uploaded it to the new DB folder you shared.
214 9/20/2020 1:42:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message Ok, i've been having problems with dropbox, not sure where our files are comign up, and i can't find the most recent one, so i created a RyanGreg ToC shared file that we can put all the new one into? I'm certian it's user error and my own lack of technological knowledgte

Needless to say, i can't find your most recent one, can you put it in the new file?
213 9/17/2020 11:25:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message File up, one of my Infighting gives you a die roll of IPs for Republics, same I as I got for your IF chit I guess. Go ahead and roll it and apply the IPs and then we resolve the PIT rolls.

Message from Ryan - Red:
Corruption with a +1

2-4 (-1 RS)
5+ (-2 RS)
208 9/16/2020 7:41:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message Well, i did my RSs already on the file, forgetting to roll for corruption (so much chrome!) so i guess i already declared. It's easier for red, because with my central position i don't really have to deal with needing RCs for the RS. I'll roll for corruption now, then perhaps adjust when I handle the file next?

207 9/14/2020 11:36:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message with +1 for in fighting, 2 means I lose 1 so net 10 available.

I think we are supposed to declare how many for rebuilds, leaders, IP points, etc. Not certain how to do this, but I went ahead and declared first last turn so perhaps fair that you declare first this time unless you know of a way to declare secretly? I also need a moment to research Replacement Centers as most of my replacements are in Kuban and Don and I may have limits to how many I can spend, so will review those rules tonight/tomorrow while you add up your RS and roll for corruption as well and decide how to spend them. Would be fair we both declare how many we intend to spend on IP's and then roll after both declare I think? Could lose them all, and knowing the other guy lost them or not could influence decision to spend some of your own RS with that foreknowledge.

2 for W31 event "Allied Additional Aid"
2 for Ukraine VCs
1 for Enemy Home VC captured
-2 for Grand Offensive Event

Net 11 before rolling for corruption

Message from Greg - White:
Sorry for the delay, part of it was trying to sort through the turn to account for RS's gained and lost, and reading the rules closely and in some cases searching for what I thought I remembered....starting off by rolling to see if CL get's a bonus RS for the train, yes on 1-3

Not certain I accounted for this rule before, but CL hadn't suffered much losses so likely no matter....
203 9/14/2020 5:53:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Sorry for the delay, been a brutal week last week and more so this week as 3,000 residents are arriving and we are dealing with COVID and wildfires with smoke really bad, so much so the interiors of three halls are not safe to live in,,,
202 9/5/2020 6:08:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message ok, turn done, then a chunk of the logistics phase done, your RPs to go

199 9/1/2020 11:08:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message File up, just RS.
198 8/25/2020 12:46:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message File up, cleaned up the VC situation, cleaned up an advance (i might not have been clear in my intentions), then played a card for RPs

197 8/25/2020 Turn 1 Greg - White Message File with the corrections to your overstacks and the advance made, and my event play, begging supplies from the US and UK.
196 8/23/2020 12:07:00 AM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message I just reallized you can only have 2 armies in a space, i may have violated that rule int he past also. How about move the R2 to balakovo to the east? I also have 3 armies in Samara, can we swap the S Ural army with the Syzan cav div?
195 8/22/2020 10:16:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Checked you last move and combat file, that were overstacked in Saratov, likely for sometime, at least they started the move as 3 Armies together from there. Perhaps just easiest if you declare another destination for one of the armies there?
194 8/22/2020 10:11:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Started my move, but noticed the space you moved into 328 in the Don has 3 LCU, overstack?


193 8/21/2020 10:01:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message Also Trotsky will advance to the VC space

192 8/21/2020 10:00:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message I think you forgot to apply the reds +1 to the battle. makes it a 5 loss for whites. Doesn't change too much, just forces the replacing cav division to flip. Also, lookks like I take 3 (1 rolled on 6-8 column)

I'll flip the R1 in Povnorino

Reading advance rules, I also don't see anything about the classic 'only full strength units may advance' rule, so i'll advance the R10, R13, and Elite 1 division to Migul, the rest will advance to Novoko
191 8/19/2020 12:22:00 AM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Well, failed the withdraw, but must have avoided the bloody fighting, still 4 LF to White and 2 LF to Red. White will elim the cav unit and retreat two, you have a loss to apply and can advance into the VC. Looks like the tide turns some...

Message from Greg - White:
Nope, and you didn't account for the CMs, I think you get +1 for leadership, and +1 for more elite, that would be +2 and give you the choice of a +1 to you or a -1 to me, but with my failed withdraw it's another +1 CM and at 3 it's +1 Red and -1 White...

186 8/12/2020 5:42:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message 5/4 split

I think you need to elim the Czech 3, and i'm going to assume the Soc Rev army does not have a flip side? I'll just have it take 2 of the losses, and flip the replacing corps, then flip Republic 3. I'll retreat the stack to 629, Cheboksary. Advance?

184 8/12/2020 5:34:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message I think the Glazov v Valeria battle is a bully fight, I can't hurt you, and you are garonteed at least 1 damage, so just killing my guy there.


183 8/8/2020 2:31:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message OK, file up. Am working our way out the door for a vacation, wanted to get this done as there is only wifi and from the reviews, not great, at a central lodge where we are staying. Can play I am sure (hoping) but slower responses...

Anyhow, a fiddly replay as I bumbled through the moves and counters and combat declarations....two attacks for you to resolve.
182 8/6/2020 8:34:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message i'll flip the army and the regular corps


181 8/4/2020 11:38:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Wait, forest is +1 combat dice roll modifier, so 3 LF to each. Your call on losses still.

I just switched what space to activate for combat.


176 8/3/2020 10:31:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message For the activation, I think, like my damn CL, if you activate a stack with Isurrection armies has some limits in what else you can activate (13.33) " If a side activates a space containing an IA, it
may only activate other spaces containing IAs
and/or Green forces"
175 8/3/2020 10:30:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Good to have a little time away from the kids, we are in the situation where we rarely have them all together anymore. Celebrated Loek's 9th Birthday (is Wednesday actually) a bit early up in Portland with my sister, Grandma and Mom, and all the sisters came up too.
174 7/30/2020 9:28:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message Got my file up, did a move and a possible combat.

Headed up north to my parent's place tomorrow, Lisa dropped off the kids there last week, so we have had a week without kids, it's pretty fun. It was more fun when they were younger, because now they are at the age where they really aren't that much work and kind of do their own thing. Still, we got to make spicy food and watch non-kid friendly TV for the week, which is pretty fun.
173 7/26/2020 6:16:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Crap, sorry! Hazards of old age and living in Oregon, I failed to upload. Just got hoem from Eastern Oregon, high desert and volcanic ladscape. Good to get away, but to work tomorrow until Aug 8 when we go to a cabin on Diamond Lake, pretty near Crater Lake. Been somewhere like 15 years, perhaps a bit more since we stayed there before. We go to Crater Lake at least once a year, being a longish day trip away from one of the most epic places on the planet. But staying at Diamond Lake will allow for more hikes and also chill time. It's also near the headwaters of the Rogue River who many know by the Rogue Brewery, although that brewery is not near my favorite. Anyhow great hikes along the Rogue too. Hoping the skeeters are not bad. July is the rough month, right after the snow thaws. Wasn't bad where we were this week near Bend.
172 7/23/2020 2:03:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message i'm not seeing the file, perhaps my dropbox is full. going to delete a bunch of earlier turns just in case, can you re-upload it?

171 7/21/2020 11:36:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message I'll recount the VCs later, perhaps create a spreadsheet tracker, hard to count on the map...

File up, just moves.
170 7/16/2020 9:51:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message File up, got some reinforcements. I also counted 13 red VPs, maybe you forgot W Ukraine, Makno, or Turkistan in the South East.
169 7/14/2020 11:12:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Yes, although kind of like Pursuit of Glory, you can get so much on the map but you can only order so much and I am not certain with the PIT where it is much can happend with Ukraine or Poland...and we only get 5 activation's this turn too...file is up with my first activation, just moves.
168 7/14/2020 7:48:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message Man, this game is such a mess. Chaos is right. I suppose one just needs to go with it and see what happens. I placed my peasant armies.

167 7/12/2020 8:21:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message What's a bii unclear (one of many things in this game) is with the Ukraine PIT at no act, I can't activate and does that mean you can't activate any of the Peasant armies either?
166 7/12/2020 8:14:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message OK, uploadign file with my Ukraine placements and the French get to be on the map now that the scary Germans have left. I'll do Poland after you setup Ukraine, not certain anything you do will change my Polish setup, but breaking to get some dinner going.... I also noted in the rules that if West Ukraine is uncontrolled when Poland is controlled, the opposing side get's West Ukraine, doesn't change anything as you did get W Ukraine anyhow, but interesting to remember for later days if we play again.

160 7/12/2020 1:25:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message I will get on the file today after I spend some morning time at the garden and chill out at home this afternoon. Went to the in-laws yesterday so didn't get much done, had three margaritas and took a nap when we go home and then watched La La Land. Not a bad film, even though I generally hate any Musical other than "The Wall"...

159 7/12/2020 1:24:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Yes, they generally recommend it at age 50. The procedure is not bad, the IV in the hand is the worst part. The prep work of cleaning out your system is not so fun.
158 7/12/2020 10:26:00 AM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message Well, glad your appointment went well. I haven't gotten to do that particular exam yet, though at 44, i'm pretty sure my first one is going to happen soon. As to the game, you're right about the box on the top of the card effecting Ukraine activation, that is my mistake. and i need to read on the PIT a bit also. I think you can activate spaces, but can only operate within Ukraine borders or something. Untile the PIT token moves around.
157 7/8/2020 10:35:00 PM Turn 1 Greg - White Message Yes, good turn and about time for some red momentum I think. I do think the random card drawn with the No Ukraine effect in the box isn't in play as those boxes only apply when a card is picked not randoms, and only one effect can eb used (if you picked three cards you choose one boxed effect). Not certain the Ukraine influence changes anything though. I do need to read up a bit on Poland and Ukraine before launching into my turn. Had a medical test today involving a robot snake that goes up a private spot, all turned out good which was a relief....but the prep was not fun as you have to be all cleaned out...anyhow, chilling today and will see if I can do my play tomorrow.
156 7/6/2020 11:02:00 PM Turn 1 Ryan - Red Message A pretty good turn politically for Red, though I think most of those factions usually go Red at some point. Makes the map more chaotic, imagine that.
