457 7/3/2020 5:31:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message that's great to know. sounds very doable.
456 7/3/2020 5:22:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message I have found in person a full 20 turn game takes about 7 hours. So I have played two full games in a single day in a tournament.
455 7/3/2020 5:20:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message Thanks a lot Keith. We'll pick it up in person! I definitely have a trip to the US pending as soon as the restrictions are lifted.
How long does the game take to play in person? A couple of days?
454 7/3/2020 5:14:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Anatoly,

I understand.

It is a very challenging game.

And the farther you go, the more you learn.

I hope you enjoyed our games. I hope to play you in person as well.

If, not in the US, then perhaps in Russia when you finally head home.

I was planning my second trip to Russia for next Summer when all this stuff happened.

Even the ConsimWorld Expo I told you about was cancelled for this year last week.

I wish you and your family all the best.

Take care,

Keith


453 7/3/2020 5:09:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Your attack strength was 6A

3 from RU8, 2 From (RU9) and 1 from RUc in Lodz.

I flip GE11.

3/3 Net result. No retreat.
452 7/3/2020 5:08:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message Hey Keith. I'm really sorry, but i'm going to surrender. I know it's not ideal, as it would be really cool to play out the history of it all and see Russia being overrun and the carnage in the West. Obviously i'm doing badly, but the game has also been taking over my life a bit. The million of available choices, the uncertainly of the opponent's next move, the dice rolls are extremely addictive. Being locked up in Caracas for the last four months without being able to leave or see many people is probably also a part of it. I haven't been able to work much, eat or sleep well in the last few days, so i think i need to lower the adrenaline levels a bit. Again, i really appreciate the amazing hours of gaming and all the teaching you shared with me. It was a great game. I really hope to be able to play in person with you one day when this whole pandemic is over! I promised not to surrender when things go South for me then! (I also won't put the damn MEF army in the middle of nowhere) I think it will just be best for my mental state right now to focus on the work and do some exercise.

438 7/3/2020 4:36:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message I made a mistake in RU corps count.

There are 18, not 16 in the game.

You have 5 NE
4 RB
2 Eliminated box...there was 1 there earlier I missed.

Then you have a flipped one in Czernowitz
1 Riga
1 Grodno
1 Bialystok
1 Lodz
1 Kovel
1 Lutsk

That should add up to 18.

I think I missed the one in Grodno and the eliminated box previously.

431 7/3/2020 4:18:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #27: 3 / Great Retreat
All RU units attacked this turn may retreat before combat. This must be announced before flank attempts, play of combat cards, and die rolls. No combat resolution takes place. The RU unit(s) must retreat 1 space. Full strength CP units may advance. Forts and non-RU units in space are still attacked. Aborted CP attacks still counts for MO purposes.

409 7/3/2020 3:21:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Hey Anatoly,

You cannot use Romania (or Italy) for Ops (or Rplacments or SR) because I am at Total War and you are not.

You can use it as the event, hold it and wait for you are at Total War or discard it as a Combat Card at the end of the turn.

Thus, your previous action round is invalid.

404 7/3/2020 12:56:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Just so you know.

Given that the CP is now at Total War, the Romania and Italy cards may only be played as events or discarded as combat cards for now. Once you go to Total War, this restriction is lifted.
