1087 5/23/2020 10:17:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message The advance to Danzig creates a supply warning for Posen and Thorn, since I could conceivably take Tannenberg and Plock on my next move (if I get one).

4 German: Rebuild GE18 to Essen & GE11 to Breslau
3 Austrian: AH6 to Budapest, Flip up AHc at Cottbus & Rebuild (AHc) to Reserve (2,1)
Turks are full & Bulgarians are ineligible
1024 5/22/2020 10:10:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message The move would have probably been...
A6 vs Mannheium, A3 vs. Strasbourg fort
KP capture Czernowitz
Lodz attack and capture Breslau (or Posen, whichever unoccupied)
Tarnopol vs. Lemberg.

So that's actually 5 VP sites threatened (Strasbourg, Breslau, Czernowitz, Lemberg, and Frankfurt/Stuttgart). Breslau & Czernowitz guaranteed, I get two "licks" at Strasbourg (combat + siege), and then I have to either retreat you out of Lemberg w/o getting flipped or get a double retreat on A6:A5 in Mannheim.

I didn't deeply calculate the final odds, but it felt like "less than 50/50, more than 1-in-3" :D
1023 5/22/2020 9:59:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message So, you did have MEF! I haven’t done the math, but do you really have that good a chance at a 2-space retreat from Mannheim, given that one FR army is tied up besieging Strasbourg? In any case, you should roll that siege.

Well, there's like a 30-40% chance I could get autovictory by playing this for ops (requires getting a retreat at Lemberg and a 2-space retreat at Mannheim), but I think I'm better just taking RP's and pushing next turn.
