43 4/27/2020 5:29:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message lol. Didn't realize the effects of a fort. Thought I won the game there. Guess my chances for the win were much less than I originally thought with no DRs. Glad it didn't go worse. These winter turns are brutal. I'll look things over and send my turn shortly.
42 4/27/2020 8:55:00 AM Turn 1 Soviets Message DR; since in a fort, no effect

That's all the combats; you still have a CA on the unit attacking Moscow

37 4/26/2020 12:35:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message 1.I will discard two cards to put counterblows on the two adjacent leningrad units. Discard Soviet Logistics Problems and Soviet Manpower Crisis.
Play the card Battle Initiative to move the 4th army in Kalinin two movement points into the 9th army hex. Reducing that attack from 3-1 to a 3-2 attack. I will take one more crack at winning the game in Leningrad.

Technically this card is supposed to be played after movement, but there was no way to get it played before you declared combat hexes in a PBeM game. Rest assured I was planning on using it if able to give myself another chance at the win.

Back to you to resolve battles.
36 4/26/2020 11:58:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Ahh. I missed those two shift blitz markers. Ouch. I'll look over your file and let you know what counterblows I will declare.
35 4/26/2020 10:14:00 AM Turn 1 Soviets Message On the first winter turn of the game, the shock give me 2 right shifts; see under 13.1 weather, winter turns, so

1. is 9th: basic is 2-1, 1 shift to left for woods, 2 ro R for 3-1

2. vs 3rd pz: 3-2 basic, 1 to L for city, 2 to R foir shock, so 2-1

3. vs 6th army: 3-1 basic, 1 to L for city, 2 to R for shock, 4-1

I will send the file
34 4/26/2020 10:10:00 AM Turn 1 Soviets Message Sorry about the white unit attacking; I can fix that w/ some minor adjustments; I will send a sav file, but you can still see most of my move. In stead of Crimean Front coming in at Voronezh, it will start at Yaroslavl and then attack Moscow. That attack is greater than 1-3, so according to 10.6.4, it is an auto CA
33 4/25/2020 7:59:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Not understanding your attacks. You did not calculate any shifts for terrain, so all of those attacks would be one shift left. Also. I'm not following your auto CA for Ostatky. He is a white unit, so it cannot attack right? Let me know if you want everything to stay the same.
32 4/25/2020 10:57:00 AM Turn 1 Soviets Message File sent:

I have 4 attacks:

1. 3-1 after shifts vs 9th

2. Ostatky vs Moscow is auto CA

3. Crimean, SW, Reserve vs 3rd Pz; after shifts, 3-1

4. 3 units attack 6th @4-1 after shifts

No cards to play

likewise, buy South

Message from Germans:
Sevastopol attack 3-1 minus winter shift = 2-1.
28 4/23/2020 10:09:00 AM Turn 1 Soviets Message No cards or CB's; go ahead abd resolve like you just explained. And you stillhave the attack by Sevastapol.
27 4/23/2020 9:32:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message It appears I would have the option of moving away if chose to this turn, but I will remain in place this time around for 1-1 attack with no shifts for terrain. Now that I look at it I should have probably put another unit there to increase my odds.. lol Let me know if you agree and if you have any cards for the two battles. Just read that the weather combat shift still apply so this attack would be 1-2 instead of 1-1.
26 4/23/2020 9:21:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message This flowchart helps explain it. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/192231/no-retreat-russian-front-counterblow-resolution-fl
25 4/23/2020 9:21:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message This is what my rulebook says for bullet point 3 in 10.7.3. "Remember that a Counterblow called for by the CRT (the CB result) will be resolved during the next Player-Turn: the PHASING player (always) places one of his Counterblow markers on one of his units, owner’s choice; even if during a Counterattack (CA)." You were the phasing player during that CA, so this seems to suggest you would resolve it like a normal attack during the next player's turn which would be mine.
24 4/22/2020 8:32:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message I will reread the section. Gets confusing since I was counterattacking on your phase. Any cards to play for this current battle, or any other counter blows?
23 4/22/2020 4:42:00 PM Turn 1 Soviets Message I found this at 10.7.3, bullet point 3: a CB as a result of combat means that nothing happens until it is the Soviet's player turn, where I can do the attack or withdraw.
22 4/22/2020 11:55:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Only one attack. File loaded. I think I have to roll again right now at 1-1 odds for the CB vs 3rd panzer, but I'm not sure. Let me know what you think.
21 4/22/2020 11:38:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message CB. I will place the marker on my nex turn.

Message from Germans:
That turn was a lot of bad die rolls, but Leningrad not Stalingrad will be remembered as the turning point of the war. Can't believe I don't have it. I will do my one counter attack at 1-1 odds. Can't get any worse can it?
19 4/22/2020 9:45:00 AM Turn 1 Soviets Message 4 looks like no effect on my table; over to you.

Message from Soviets:
That's good enough for me; so I will roll this and we should be able to go over to your T4
17 4/22/2020 9:00:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message I got two responses, one from the designer himself. Your white strength unit is forced to attack both units combined at 5-6=1-2 odds. They don't flip over, but remain on their white side. Read somewhere that my units were infiltrating or something like that.
16 4/22/2020 7:30:00 AM Turn 1 Soviets Message OK, I am wrong again. If you haven't got anything from BBG, I think i have to flip my guy over to the other side to make the attack, which in this case would be 1-2 w/o modifiers.
15 4/21/2020 10:23:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Hey Mark. I didn't place a counterblow marker into a hex with a sole white combat unit. My hexes are regular units. I believe your sole white combat unit would still be forced to attack both. I asked the question on BGG for clarification. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/2412700/article/34609571#34609571
14 4/21/2020 3:06:00 PM Turn 1 Soviets Message Let me finish up my turn: out of supply marker off Leningrad due to my unit Kalinin. I will derail West into Yaroslavl
13 4/21/2020 3:04:00 PM Turn 1 Soviets Message Let me finish up my turn: out of supply marker off Leningrad due to my unit Kalinin. I will derail West into Yaroslavl
12 4/21/2020 3:02:00 PM Turn 1 Soviets Message Dave, I was searching around for whatto do anout the Leningrad couterblow, and I found this, 2nd bullet point under 10.1.2: You cannot put a counterblow marker on a hex containing only white strength units".
If you agree, you would get a card back.
11 4/21/2020 2:54:00 PM Turn 1 Soviets Message That is another NE

Message from Soviets:
Sevastopol vs 11th @1-2, w/ left shift due to marshes, so 1-3
7 4/21/2020 2:44:00 PM Turn 1 Soviets Message Sorry about the file. Though I have used Dropfox forgames a number of times, I mostly use email attachments, so I am not used for looking for files. I can only use Vassal on Celia's Windows computer, so I am only on when I am playing game moves, so I usually miss the Dropbox notifications. I will roll all of these. I won't have any cards to play and you only have one card left.
6 4/21/2020 10:03:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message I loaded the map. File 009.
