I was talking with my long time gamin partner Dan about BtB. He had found BtB wanting when he played it several times which has been awhile. He said the best he could remember was the disparity of needed OPS points. There were just never enough to be able to move the allied members for either side. Mainly minor allies.

I knew the game had itís knocks and Iíve downloaded from the GMT site the several pages of docs that are a comparison between the 2006 & 20002 rules. Iíve found noting that seems to make things much better, mostly explanations and comparisons.

So, we will be able to form our own opinions as we play but if we come to the same resolution about OPS we might have to experiment with a fix. Plenty of time for that though.

64 8/2/2020 4:22:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Hey Marc, I have answers to those two questions:

Fist the PZXXX to Tripoli. Not sure why I picked up the infantry corps at Belgrade but I did. That was supposed to be the PZcorps from Vienna to Tripoli.

And yes, you are correct on the SR from Reserve and I knew that rule but overlooked it while trying to figure out good places to SR. So, the PZXXX SR from Reserve will be to Berlin.

I think that fixes it up. Hopefully my mistakes will lessen quickly!
63 8/2/2020 3:39:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Couple of things on the SR. I show an infantry XXX in Belgrade and your move lists a PZ. Did I miss something?
Also, see 12.4 regarding move from Reserve to Novgorad:
12.4 SR and the Reserve Box
OUT OF: Units may SR out of the Reserve Box into any space in their home country (and then stop) containing a friendly Capi- tal, Supply Symbol or Urban center in Full Supply, within the stacking limit.
Let me know what you think or of any changes. Thanks!

I did not check on a CC when I attacked Pskov because I was positive you would not use one on a lost cause like that. I did mean to mention it and forgot.

55 8/1/2020 10:53:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Good move! One minor thing, however. I think the (4pz) would have to stop in Pskov as it is a swamp space. Doesn't really change you setup any and your line of supply is safe.

Also as an addendum to my move. When I moved the 16th to Valdai I took the northern route via Tallinn + Narva + Luga on the way to Valdai. This to give me control of those spaces also.

I will check that moving through is all I need versus stopping but I think I remember reading it that way. Will let you know.

This move has already changed 3 times from mostly combat to mostly moves. I also hope that not using this event now does not bite me in the a^$.

Activate for Combat: Dvinsk

Activate for Move: Riga + Minsk + Bialystok

Battle - The GE (18th & 4PZA) (6sp) atttack Pskov (xxxx)(1) LCU to SCU tables. No need to roll because 1 step is all the SU unit can inflict and the minimum for the Germans is 3 steps for a 2 step diff.
So the SU (XXXX) goes to the elim box & the German mech can advance 3 spaces.
GE (18th) advances to Pskov and the (4PZA) advances to Kholm Demyansk.

Moves:
Riga - The GE 16h moves to Valdai for the scenic view.

Minsk - GE 2 & 3 PZA move to Novorod

The 4dr on the 6-8 col generates 4 steps loss.
The 6dr on the 2 col generates 3 steps loss.

The (Northwest) is eliminated for 3 steps and replaced with a XXXX from Allied Reserve (leaving 3 SU there) and that XXXX is flipped to itís reduced side for the 4th loss step. It must retreat 1 space so let me know where it goes since that may affect my 2 spaces of advance possible with my mech unit.

I will reduce the 4PZA for my 3 steps loss & advance it and the (GE 18th) both to Dvinsk. The (4PZA) may go further.

I will hold up on my last attack until this is settled since your retreat can matter though not likely.

I will resolve in the order I have listed here. Do you have any CC to play? Should I ask you before each batlle?
42 7/31/2020 2:17:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Ill definitely need to be more careful in the future!
41 7/31/2020 2:17:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message So sorry. I never wrote down the retreat of the (SW) to Tarnopol in the first place. I understand your confusion. He retreated there, then activated at Tarnopol and moved to Kiev while the XXXX moved on his own. Does that make sense now?
40 7/31/2020 12:19:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message The Reserve refers to the front in Mozhaisk (sp?), one of my to Sorge moves. The other is the (SW) front and the army stacked with it in Tarnopol.
39 7/31/2020 11:17:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Iíve discarded and drawn my cards for turn 2.

It occurred that move from Reserve to Orsha might have been Replacement Phase move. Only question there is we have to spend replacement points and I donít see any we start with per the campaign. Agains, let me know if Iíve missed something.

35 7/31/2020 11:05:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message As for the order of the ORDERS are rolled in I donít see it matters either. Axis ends up with a 3 and no required order.

The Allies roll a 2 and have to made a Mandated Offensive.

Axis Orders roll for turn 2
33 7/31/2020 10:58:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message You played the Sorge event and marked the two spaces for movement. I assume you can go ahead and move those units just as I was able to do combats in Barbarossa. When you activate a space for movement with OPS you get to go ahead and move so I think you have two moves coming.

As for the Reserve to Orsha. That would be an SR with the card played as an SR. Am I missing something?

Iíll roll for my orders but await getting my questions straightened out before I proceed.
32 7/31/2020 10:27:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Marc, two questions on retreats.

The (SW) retreated to Kiev from Lwow which was 3 spaces. Can you retreat that far? I see 1 or 2 spaces under 11.41. Is there something Iíve missed on retreats?

The xxxx that retreated to Vinnisrta. Where did it originate? The one at Kovel was eliminated. The other armies I have below Minsk are in their starting locations. Just want to make sure Iím following you.
31 7/30/2020 11:07:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message I guess it could matter with Hitler Orders, but we'll see. Aliied MO
