77 8/12/2020 8:56:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message Do you definitely want to do that by SR? It looks to me that you could achieve the same effect with a single OP. Not a problem to me, I just don't want there to be any misunderstanding.

Message from Central Powers:

73 8/11/2020 4:37:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message No problem, the discard strategy card phase is technically after RPs anyway ;) Though most people I've played with tend to do it together with their RPs to save time. Anyway, feel free to say explicitly whether you are ready to end turn.

54 8/9/2020 7:50:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Yes I always roll attacker first sorry
53 8/9/2020 2:47:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Regarding #48:

Do you always roll attacker first? Since you haven't told me so, and you only wrote the fire columns, the combat roll would have been ambiguous if the two rolls hadn't been equal!

I tend to specify the sides when I request a roll, but if I forget then please assume I roll attacker first, except in case of an unsuccessful flank attack (or only dice requested when one roll is redundant).
52 8/9/2020 2:42:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #9: 4 / Reichstag Truce

I will send 1 unflipped corps to each destination
46 8/8/2020 3:31:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Attack on Belgrade by SB2, (SB1) and (SBc) is correct on 3A v 3A, so you may roll it yourself once you confirm the C-T loss allocation and move.
45 8/8/2020 3:26:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message SOrry, I didn't note that there was a mistake in #42: you only suffered 4LF in C-T, so the replacing FRc wasn't killed.

So you have either 2 FRc or you have 1 FRc and 2 (FRc) in C-T. How do you want to move them?

For the logs, in the obsolete game you had bid 0VP for AP, we had agreed to use the default historical scenario and supply warnings, and had rolled none/FR for the turn 1 MOs.

7 7/31/2020 4:27:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Gareth, you seemed to have reset AP to me. I've set AP to you again (I still can't change CP). Try setting CP to me one more time, and if it doesn't work then ask Tom to do it for us...

2 7/31/2020 2:02:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Thanks for setting up the new game Tom. However, the sides are actually still the wrong way round... It was Gareth who had bid 0VP to play the AP, which I accepted. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Anyway, I will change AP to Gareth now.

Gareth, to change CP to me maybe you need to make sure to first sign in as CP, then change CP player, then sign in again as AP?
1 7/30/2020 9:43:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message OK, here's a new game for you, gentlemen. Please redocument your bid, usage of warnings, etc.

Good luck!

PS: You guys switched sides correctly but you need to remember to log out completely before coming back in and drawing cards if you switched sides. =)
