COMBAT Roslav-YElna: GE 9th attacks SUa in Bryansk. This is an autokill. Advance the GE 9th into Bryansk.

COMBAT Konotop: GE 2Pz attacks the SUa in Kursk. This is an autokill. Advance the GE 2Pz into Kursk.

COMBAT Poltava: GE 4Pz attacks the SUa in Kharkov. This is an autokill. Advance the GE 4Pz to Voronezh, traveling through Kharkov (+1VP).

There is an OOS warning for all the Soviet Union units in and around Moscow, as the GE 4pz in Voronezh can move to Perm next Action Round and put all of those units OOS.

Place Brynsk, Kalinin, & Volkhov Fronts. Place 3x Armies ==> RB.

Message from Allied:
I'm thinking now is the time to get these fronts down.

I think I'll go with Brynsk in Moscow

Kalinin and Volkhov both in Tula

Not sure if those are the best spots but we'll go with that.
55 8/4/2020 4:13:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message So, after these moves, here is what we got:

The SOUTH Front in Kishinev is now OOS, just like the SUa in Kolomyja. They can still move, but just 2 spaces. Also, they can now leave their space without paying a 1VP penalty for violating the SF Marker, because the first space they enter is Axis-controlled. Your call on whether or not you want to save them.

I didn't move through Kiev, but the space is now OOS, as is Cherkassi. Therefore you won't be able to place reinforcements in Kiev, not that I think you should. If I don't move through it, then it will fall to the Axis in the Attrition Phase.

The SUa in Sevastopol still has two sources of supply going for him. He is in Limited Supply through the SR Connection to Batumi. He also has Fort Supply while he stays in the space.

The GE 1Pz is extremely vulnerable at the moment, and it would be easy to put him OOS. But I still have three OPS Rounds left, so I think I will be able to re-establish supply. The good thing is that by capturing Maikop, he has lifted the FALL BLAU restrictions. Therefore, the Axis are now free to attack Stalingrad as well as enter the Caucasus.

Message from Allied:
All tough decisions. I think I'll do this

Move SU corp from Uman to Kharkov

Move SU corp from Kiev to Kursk

Move CEN front from Gomel to Orel

I'll try that and go from there.
51 8/4/2020 7:06:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message The SOUTH Front is in Kishinev, not Kharkov. And yes, it will be put OOS.

I will also probably put the CENTRAL Front in Gomel OOS, as well as eliminate/OOS the SUa's in Uman and Kiev.

So, you put three new Fronts on the map, and possibly lose 4 other units.

As I said, there is no easy answer.
50 8/4/2020 7:03:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Yes, the GE pzc was a little too aggressive.

Please place him back in Kremenchug.
49 8/4/2020 12:18:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Im thinking of putting the three fronys in:

Moscow
Tula
Saratov or Stalingrad

S front in Kharkov could get put OOS
48 8/3/2020 11:50:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message OK

BTW, can the GE PZ corp attacking from Galatz advance all the way to Dnep.?
47 8/3/2020 11:02:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message There is no easy answer. Something will have to give. Always be wary of the PGG card. The probably with playing the reinforcement card is that you don't get to move any pieces. Right now, just the SUa in Kolomyja is OOS. But if you play the reinforcmeny, on my next move I could easily put Kishinev, Uman, Kiev and Gomel all OOS.
46 8/3/2020 10:56:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Depends. I have always had a hard time defending with the Soviets against a very aggressive Axis player. Right now, the Southern part of the Soviet Union is spouting some leaks.

You have three options:

a.) Play the Reinforcement card
b.) Play OPS
c.) Play SR

You could put the Fronts in Moscow or Tula (to protect Stalin), Kharkov (is a good roadblock), and possibly Stalingrad. But I will send the GE pzc into Maikop to cancel out the Fall Blau requirement.

You could play OPS to move back the CEN Front which is in danger of being put OOS, and the SUa's in Kiev and Uman. I think the SOUTH Front in Kishinev is a lost cause, unless you want to pay another 1VP penalty to move it back.

You could SR the SUa's in Kiev and Uman, and possibly STALIN, as well as SR a SUa out of the RB. You are getting low in the RB, but the reinforcement card will get you 3 x SUa.
45 8/3/2020 9:30:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message SU corp lost

No loss to ROM

Would now be a good time to play the three fronts?

39 8/2/2020 1:34:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message IDUSTRIAL EVACUATION is the best card in your deck. Now would be a great time to play it.

Remember, I can't attack Leningrad without playing the NORDLIGHT event first. However, if you leave it empty, I am allowed to simply walk in without having to play the Event. The same is trus for Moscow and Stalingrad.

In just about every BtoB game, Leningrad will fall to the Aixs. It just a matter of how much he as to fight for it (i.e. waste OPS on attacking Leningrad, that could be better spent elsewhere in the Soviet Union.)
38 8/1/2020 10:18:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message So the next card I should play is Industrial Evacuation since Stalin is still in Moscow

Do I abandon Leningrad and save that unit?

I guess keep retreating so Moscow doesn't get surrounded?

19 7/31/2020 10:18:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message There are no easy answers. And only having a 4OPS card doesn't help any.

You can attack with SW MECH, and with a CC, will guarantee flipping a German unit. But it has a 5/6 chance of getting flipped itself. And if it doesn't win the combat, it will stay put. And I will guarantee to put it OOS in my first Action Round. I would probably pay the 1VP to move it back.

I would let the WEST Front die in place.

And then you are left with the 5 SUa that are in contact with a German Army (Riga, Pskov, Vitebsk, Pinsk and Tarnopol-Rovno). This doesn't count the SUa in Kolomyja, that will probably dies OOS next Turn.

If you spend 1OPS to save the SW MECH, then that onnly leaves 3OPS to try and save five SUa.

I would move the SUa in Riga.

I would either move the SUa in Pskov, or reinforce it with the LEN Front.

I would ignore the SUa in Pinsk.

Then your choice is the SUa in either Vitebsk or Tarnopol-Rovno. I would choose saving the one in Tarnopol-Rovno.
18 7/31/2020 9:56:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message So first question is what to do with the SW Mech army. Do I attack or do I retreat and give up the VP?

What units need yo retreat?
17 7/31/2020 9:43:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Tough choice on which 4OPS card to play. If you play FDR, that will greatly push back Total War for you, and allow me some flexibility on when to play HITLER DECLARES WAR.

On the other hand, playing DESERT WAR for OPS just opens up North Africa for me, and may make me pause and think about a North Africa strategy.

As a rule, the Allies need to get to Total War as soon as possible. You saw how much trouble they can do with all those Soviet Mechanized Fronts.

I would hate to sacrifice 3VP spots in the North Africa, but I would rather surrender that, than delay Total War.

14 7/31/2020 9:35:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Special Turn 1 Rule, Soviets units forced to retreat two spaces can't end their retreat adjacent to their original space. So the SUa has to retreat farther than Dvinsk. The normal play is to retreat to Pskov, retreating through Riga first.
13 7/31/2020 8:26:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message I have card no. 24 with the three fronts so obviously I want to keep that.

I have no 5 op cards.

I have two 4 op cards, Desert Army and FDR declares war.

Iím going to play one of them. Any thoughts about which one to play for Ops?

Should I keep or discard the other 4 Op card?
