40 10/26/2020 6:06:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hey Vladimir/Hugh, are you still alive?
I also sent some email...
39 10/24/2020 3:30:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Maybe it is better to start a new game?

I don't see how you might rescue the encircled armies, that would be permanently eliminated if OOS at the end of the turn.

Anyway if you want to do some more actions, to see what happens, I'm obviously available to continue.
38 10/24/2020 3:20:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #12: 4 / German Reinforcements (10th Army)
10th Army, 2 corps.

Message from Central Powers:
4 OPS:

M Sedan: (GE3) to Nevers, (GE2) to Liege

M Metz: GE4 to Melun, GE5 to Chateau Thierry

M Strasbourg: GE6 to Sedan

M Mulhouse: (GE7) to Sedan

OOS: Verdun, Nancy, Bar le Duc, Dijon, Belfort.
It won't be easy to rescue them.

Message from Central Powers:
flank attack on Sedan
12A table

31 10/24/2020 3:08:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message As you are not rolling but I would have time to do my move now, I hope you don't mind if I roll myself these battle dice (in case of crossing the journal entry sequence applies, later rolls are not valid)
30 10/24/2020 9:37:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message you can roll battle dice and apply the results, I don't play any CC.
You are attacking with 2+3+3+5 vs 5+5 (that will become 5+3 or 5+1 depending on attacker's die roll), right?
So you roll on 12A table for the AP first, then on 6A table for the CP
29 10/24/2020 9:32:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message > CP
> AP

> As always from now on?

I'm more used to have by default
attacker
defender
(if you don't mind)
obviously except in case of missed flank attacks.
In flank attacks I normally roll the dice one at a time, as you apply losses after the first roll before the second one.
28 10/24/2020 9:21:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message You're right. Yes, let's move the French army to Brussels instead, since I've already rolled.

Please be patient if I make mistakes, I don't have a lot of experience with this game ;)
27 10/24/2020 9:12:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message I have not the map in front of me, but I think you are doing a multi-nations attack without being allowed.
To attack with French armies and BEF you should retreat the French army from Sedan to Brussels (you can do it if you want)

Message from Central Powers:
24 10/24/2020 9:07:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message > CP war status still at 0 on ACTS, but should be at 2 after Guns of August, no?

Good catch. I see in the journal that I played GoA for operations instead of event. I take corrective actions...
(I'm not at home, but can do this from my smartphone as well 😉)
