67 9/14/2020 2:59:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message Dave, Casinos open in the reset phase so I don't think your move is optimal. Are you sure that you want to spend 5 resources to open a closed casino when you could place a new one somewhere?

53 9/3/2020 3:19:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message Yes, I think someone needs to correct the Govt move. You can do this by putting the 26 July guerrilla back in Santiago and transporting one troop cube from Las Villas to La Habanna. You can then proceed with your turn.
52 9/2/2020 8:52:00 PM Turn 1 Syndicate Message Thanks for the clarification on "Opposition" for the card.
Should I wait for a change in the Govt move or proceed?
51 9/2/2020 3:21:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message The card does not mandate the removal of pieces, just a change in support/opposition in the space.
50 9/2/2020 3:18:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message It just means that you can set opposition to Neutral. You couldn't set support to Neutral, however. So you can hurt 26 July but not the Govt victory margin.
49 9/1/2020 11:35:00 PM Turn 1 Syndicate Message Looks like Syn should wait before doing my move.
A question, in Llano card it says "Remove any Opposition there", what is the definition of opposition, does it include govt?
48 9/1/2020 5:19:00 PM Turn 1 DR Message You got it. I've been playing Nevsky for over 8 months straight. Love the game.
47 9/1/2020 4:12:00 PM Turn 1 Govt Message Looked like the Rus vs the Teutons :-)

PROCEDURE: Move up to 3 Troops from a City or Base to any 1 space."

Some of the other COIN games allow cubes to be transported. Not Cuba Libre though.
36 8/30/2020 4:08:00 AM Turn 1 Govt Message Doesn’t the rules say cubes? At work now, so no access to rules
35 8/30/2020 3:43:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message Hi Kasper, Only Troops can use Transport, so you can't move the Police to La Habana.

26 8/27/2020 6:21:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message Sorry, I didn't notice that you hadn't targeted Havana for the civic action. I won't question your strategy...
25 8/27/2020 5:58:00 AM Turn 1 Govt Message And yes, it might be stupid not to go all in on removing terror and gain support, but it simply is too expensive says the accountants
24 8/27/2020 5:56:00 AM Turn 1 Govt Message No terror in chosen city, but the two others were heavilly terrified. So no terror to remove, although I paid 1 money too little.
26J, please adjust
23 8/27/2020 5:28:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message Kasper, in order to do civic action, you need to remove terror first. Also, civic actions always cost 4 resources to remove terror or shift one step, so it costs 12 resources to shift to passive support and 16 resources to shift to active support including removing 2 terror markers.
22 8/27/2020 5:22:00 AM Turn 1 Govt Message Gov civic action

18 8/25/2020 11:09:00 AM Turn 1 Govt Message DR should perhaps have considered consolidating instead of evoking the wraith of the locals, who points out their (not so) hidden guerillas to the lawful government...

Assault in Havanna
* Govt Resources decreased to 6
* Govt Resources decreased to 5
* White Pawn moves Havana -> Havana *

* 26July Guerrillas moves Santiago de Cuba -> Sierra Maestra *
*Pawns deleted
*Movement trails cleared
17 8/25/2020 2:40:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message DR can hardly be considered anywhere near "peaking" with only three lonely pieces on the map.

15 8/24/2020 10:28:00 AM Turn 1 DR Message Dear Fidel,

Us revolutionaries really have an interest in bringing support of the government to it's lowest state, particularly in Havana. Note that only with further reduction of support are you able to rally there. As DR are in a position to reduce this support further, it would be useful if you would pass on your LimOp this turn and allow further demonstrations to take place in Havana.

Yours Truly,
Mr. X

7 8/20/2020 2:13:00 AM Turn 1 Syndicate Message I'm Dave Blizzard, I'm 67, live in Western Canada (Salt Spring Island, BC). I'm retired and spent my career in various IT roles. I've been playing games as long as I can remember, starting with Monopoly, Checkers, Chess, Clue, etc. I play all types of games, in war games, I mostly play 2 player games and my favourites are Rommel in the Desert and UpFront. I haven't played many multiplayer wargames so am glad I'm able to try out Cuba Libre with you guys. Thanks.
6 8/20/2020 2:09:00 AM Turn 1 Syndicate Message Hey guys, part of gaming to me is the people I game with, either face to face or via PBEM. So I though a short introduction would be nice. Of course only give an intro if you feel like it.
