121 6/30/2020 11:05:00 AM Fall 1941 Axis Message Thanks
120 6/30/2020 10:05:00 AM Fall 1941 Allied Message Yeah, lets call it. Good game. You played well. I don't think I want to go again. It's really difficult writing out all those Russian names. But thanks for the game.
119 6/30/2020 2:18:00 AM Fall 1941 Axis Message Yup, no cancelliung retreat in urban sapces so Moscow falls and Stalin is led off in chains to Berlin.

Flip 3Pz and advance it to Moscow

VP count is now 15

Start at 7
+ Minsk, Kiev, Orel, Saratov, Moscow, Stalin (4)
- OKH

Technically not game over yet but Tula and Gorki are vulnerable and I wcan probably get Leningrad, Odessa, Kharkov and Sevastopol with a bit of effort

Basically, losing Stalin is got a good thing

If you want to call it there we can. Would you like to go again, swapping sides?
118 6/29/2020 12:19:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message Wait that's not allowed. I guess you took Moscow...Ballgame...
