626 5/7/2020 4:27:00 PM Fall 1916 Allies Message Sounds great!

I really enjoyed playing with you.

I had a lot of fun in both games.
625 5/7/2020 4:13:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message > I think the AP, not CP is going to win a decisive victory

:-) :-)
Yes, it was another mistake of mine :-)

For the moment I'm fine with the two matches we had.
Anyway it was a real pleasure to play with you, I also appreciated your fair play and regularity!

I keep your address to get in touch in the future for another match, if you will be available.

624 5/7/2020 4:08:00 PM Fall 1916 Allies Message No advance.

The plan was when I do advance, I want a trench roll.
623 5/7/2020 4:06:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message LF 7 vs 5

GE12 eliminated, replacing corps reduced retreats to Insterberg.

RU2 eliminated, replacing corps reduced.
RU7 and RU9 can advance liberating Vilna
622 5/7/2020 4:06:00 PM Fall 1916 Allies Message 5:30 AM, yes.

What is weird, the longer this lockup goes on, the earlier I keep waking up.
621 5/7/2020 4:04:00 PM Fall 1916 Allies Message Hey Matteo,

I understand.

However, I think you inadvertently switched sides in your message.

I think the AP, not CP is going to win a decisive victory.

I open to playing another game or if you want to take a break or to play another opponent, that is fine as well.

619 5/7/2020 4:00:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message Dear Keith, sorry for my silence today up to now.
In fact I think this game is not very interesting to be played further: the situation for the AP is too compromised and I don't see how it can get better, while I see well how it can get worse!

If you agree I propose to finish it here, as a CP decisive victory.

598 5/6/2020 12:52:00 PM Summer 1916 Central Powers Message The opportunity to eliminate a 4 OPS card from the CP deck for 1 VP now is questionable, but I'm seeking minor satisfactions wherever I can find them :)

Anyway Mosul and Baghdad were gone (even if I defeated your corps at Mardin, ans your possible to counter attack was not done or not successful, by retreating one corps to Mosul you would have conquered Baghdad anyway, and Mosul next turn)
