Message from Germans:
Corrected your retreat.

Rolling for traffic marker removal.
91 6/3/2020 10:36:00 AM Turn 4 Germans Message Doesn't the 82nd unit at 5323 retreat through two EZOC? Hidden units still have ZOC (25.2.1) and while a unit may ignore one EZOC (13.1.3 point 3), they are eliminated if they "retreat into two consecutive vacant hexes in an EZOC" (13.2 4th bullet).
Perhaps you could go to 5123 (5th bulletin of 13.2) instead of 5122?
What do you think?
90 6/3/2020 10:21:00 AM Turn 4 Allies Message Ok, new file online. I think I implemented the retreat rules correctly.
89 6/3/2020 9:55:00 AM Turn 4 Germans Message Three decisions for you to make; see log file.

It's indeed an interesting strategic situation! Great game.

87 5/31/2020 11:03:00 AM Turn 4 Allies Message Hello Carl - I reviewed the file and saw no errors. It is an interesting game as you are essentially making parallel corridors or both sides of the Allies. I am starting to see where I will have to look to expanding the 'valley' so to speak.

Over to you.
86 5/29/2020 10:06:00 AM Turn 4 Germans Message German movement completed. Let me know if there are any issues. Then I'll proceed to combat.
85 5/22/2020 5:43:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message Yup, I got the file. Enjoy your vacation!
I'll probably reply early next week sometime.
84 5/22/2020 5:20:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Hey there, I am not sure if I let you know but the Allied end of turn is online. I am leaving tomorrow for a week's vacation so my responses will be delayed until then.

Cheers!

26 4/29/2020 12:29:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Right! I am thinking one day we will have most of these rules committed to memory. I am an optimist!

Ready for combat rolls?
25 4/29/2020 12:10:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message Good one. Got it on both counts! (This is why we're both playing. :)
24 4/29/2020 12:08:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Just a note about the use of engineers: I don't think you need it for combat 1502

(Paul) I am using it to undouble the defenders. Unless I have at least one combat unit attacking on the same side of the canal, the defender is doubled. Does that make sense?
23 4/29/2020 12:07:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message vs. hex 1605, I think you just get one shift for having armor in battle, not one shift per armor unit, so the total there should be 5-1, I think.

(Paul) but the artillery gets two shifts on the first turn (rule 22.1.3)
22 4/29/2020 11:55:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Vs. hex 1605, I think you just get one shift for having armor in battle, not one shift per armor unit, so the total there should be 5-1, I think.
21 4/29/2020 11:52:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Just a note about the use of engineers: I don't think you need it for combat 1502 since engineers are only need for combat across major rivers (see 9.5). Also the engineer unit is located in hex 1503 and would need to be in hex 1402 or 1403 to help the combat vs. 1503 if the canal was a major river (see diagram at the end of 9.5).
20 4/29/2020 11:47:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Sorry about that - well not really :-) I will update that result in the next file. Combat rolls coming up soon.

Message from Germans:
Will try to blow bridge at 3709
17 4/29/2020 10:43:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message A new file is online. I need a bridge decision and a math peer check please. Then we can get the fightin' started!
16 4/28/2020 5:18:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message ACTS seems to be working again.
15 4/28/2020 11:09:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Hey there - redid the file. I see another more egregious error I made - crossing ZOC bonds. Suffice to say, I was trying to be cutesy by sliding around but the situation is one that calls for power not finesse.

Let me know what you think of the new file and then we get cracking
14 4/28/2020 9:15:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message No need to redo everything. Just fix the movement of the units in the lower southern area, so you can set up different attacks (if you wish) as you would have if you'd remembered the "vehicle prohibition into polder" rule. It only affects 3 or 4 attacks.

It is way too much work to redo everything - no need for that!

I think the line you were seeing is the national boundary between Belgium and the Netherlands.
13 4/28/2020 9:09:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Thank you -

This is why I think I am good for only the short game here. The rules are good but there are so many edge cases. The TOC is clear but I read the armor halved into and out of without seeing the road requirement. I put away my physical copy and mistook the hill (?) edge as a road. Not sure how to explain why I messed hex 1503.


(Heavy sigh) ok, take III. I hope the game turns out to be fun for us. :-)

I wonder how to redo this? Can't use the file after you rolled for bridges so I guess I go back to airdrops and start from there.

Today is busy so may be later tonight. Thanks again for pointing this out.

12 4/28/2020 8:55:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Sorry just noticed a significant rules violation with your British movement.

Vehicles (pictured tanks and other vehicles) are prohibited from entering polder hexes, so in this case, the pictured vehicles units can't enter hexes 1503, 1604, 1505 and 1405 (see TEC). So it would be necessary to redo the movement and combat in which those units were involved. I hadn't looked at any combat results yet and thankfully, we are still very early so it is easily reversible. We'll get it right yet!
11 4/27/2020 9:23:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Hi Carl, new files online. I am stopping here to see if any errors were made. Also to allow you to decide retreat options / try to blow another bridge.

Happy Monday!
