318 9/27/2020 7:01:00 PM Winter 1943 Allied Message THINKING the same thing. Fingers donít work so good either.
317 9/27/2020 7:00:00 PM Winter 1943 Allied Message I was thing the same thing. I donít remember being quite this bad. Of course, itís my memory that has me wondering!
316 9/27/2020 6:49:00 PM Winter 1943 Allied Message Iíve had to double check that one as well. Hard to remember so w forest does limit advances.

315 9/27/2020 6:35:00 PM Winter 1943 Axis Message As for the forrest shift, no, youíre right, I just can read a chart! Embarassing! Iíll fix this all in the AM and get you a move and send my losses for the forrest attack!
314 9/27/2020 5:31:00 PM Winter 1943 Allied Message Oops, I did forget your whole move! Duh! The quick fix as I see it is to cancel only the Stalino move, and move the 4SA to Stalino. (I already rolled the entrenchment. So I have one move left, basically. Move the STEPPE and GOMEL fronts to Roslav Yenya instead of the "Stalino" activation. (The XXXX is still in Kalanin as it moved there this round.)
Re your losses -- My charts give no shift for forests -- is that a second edition fix?

313 9/27/2020 4:22:00 PM Winter 1943 Allied Message Seriously, Iím totally fine the way it is. Weíve both had our share on this fame and these things even out. Iíd feel bad to take Tobruk away after all this.
312 9/27/2020 4:16:00 PM Winter 1943 Axis Message Marc, the message on the SR thru desert. Oh my, I screwed up. I even remember reading now that you bring it up. Iím assuming youíre talking about getting the PAA to Hellfire Pass on the SR I did. journal 280 I think is what I looked up.

I donít think we should just forget it since it could matter at games end. I think I should relinquish Tobruk to you and I could move my troops back to Mechili and Gazala. Drop the VP to 12 and go from there. What do you think? I donít believe I would have taken Tobruk otherwise.

Also, I still need to know about the corrections on your move before I move.
311 9/27/2020 12:22:00 PM Winter 1943 Allied Message Yes, one in Alexandria
310 9/27/2020 11:53:00 AM Winter 1943 Axis Message You have a FS CW corps in Alexandra or Cairo?. My counter got bumped!
309 9/27/2020 11:51:00 AM Winter 1943 Axis Message Items on Allies 8AL2

1. Your movement into Dnepropetrovsk - I am already there with the GE 4th & 3PZA. Here is my 1st move of the round:

#11: 3 / Italian Naval Sortee
Axis unit may trace full supply across SR lines to Tripoli/Tunis this turn. May place 1 combat or Move marker.

Message from Axis:
8AX1 3 OPS

For movement:
Nikopol - GE 3pza to Dnepropetrovsk

Kirovograd - RO 3rd & RO corps to Nikopol joining the GE 7th there.

Kiev - GE 4th to Dnepropetrovsk joining the GE 3PZA there.

Looks like maybe you missed part of my move in Round 1.

2. Battle at Hellfire Pass - I will elim the IT armor corps.

3. Battle at Bryansk - You said no shifts for terrain but I am in a forrest there so A1L putting us both on the same 6-8 col. I take 3 steps loss to your 4 steps.

I flip the GE 17th for my 3 steps loss.

Let me know about your concurrence on your move and my Bryans losses.


Also, and just a thought if it makes you feel any better. You are really having a bum run of the die overall. It has shifted things to some degree.
308 9/27/2020 9:22:00 AM Winter 1943 Allied Message Hi Stan,
As often happens, I was looking for something else and ran across SR restrictions in 12.3: Units can SR into, but not through desert spaces. Its water under the bridge now, but wanted you to be aware for the future!
Marc
307 9/27/2020 8:33:00 AM Winter 1943 Allied Message I rolled on the 6-8 chart due to shift, you rolled on the 9-11 chart. Both take 4 hits. I will flip both XXXs to meet the loss number exactly. You have some options.
As there are no retreats or advances, It will be your turn after your losses.

299 9/27/2020 8:21:00 AM Winter 1943 Allied Message REVISED ENIGMA MOVE
Sorry about that, should have checked that language myself. I appreciate your offer to play something else, but now that I've seen your cards, seems only fair to stick to the OPS.

MV Tula -- SUXXXX to Kalinin, both fronts remain in place. Entrench roll to follow
MV Stalino -- STALINGRAD front to Dnepropetrovsk
MV Melitopol -- 4SA (4-1-2) to Dnepropetrovsk, entrench roll to follow
Combat markers in Kaluga and BuqBuq.
Rolls to follow
298 9/27/2020 7:49:00 AM Winter 1943 Allied Message Yes, I have to agree with your interpretation. Iíll get to my board in the next half hour and make changes.
297 9/27/2020 7:41:00 AM Winter 1943 Axis Message Marc, a note on the play of your Yellow, dual action card. As I read the section under 7.1 where it discusses the colored cards I find this sentence:

Those in a yellow box are dual-action cards, which can be used as both an OPS and Event card, or as an OPS, SR, RP or Event card singly.

I started to use a Yellow card a couple turns ago as an Event and a SR as you did. Then I realized for a dual purpose it could only be a combination of an OPS & Event together. The SR and so forth are a single action only.

I assumed you were going to move units after you played the event yesterday and so did not mention it. Thatís my interpretation of the rule at least.

Check it again yourself and let me know if you agree or if Iím somehow being too legalistic.

I offer this assuming you come to the same conclusion as I. Feel free to use the card differently or play another right now and use itís OPS or SR or whatever value in a later round. I realize you know my hand but Iím not that worried about it this turn at least not for the most part.

This game is a learning experience for both of us Iím guessing after getting one under our belt weíll have most the these little nuisances ironed out.

Get back to me good buddy!

279 9/24/2020 8:09:00 PM Fall 1942 Axis Message For the battle of Bryansk, Iíve no choice but to flip the HU 2nd army and elim it for the 4 steps.

If I read the 2nd paragraph of 11.3 correctly, it goes to the elim box but is not removed permanently since because it took the exact losses required.

If you disagree let me know but thatís how I read it. If I remember correctly in POG it did not matter about the exact losses to be removed permanently but then itís be awhile since Iíve read those rules.

Agreed we should check our boards more often. Maybe restate totals when moving in and out of the reserve and eliminated boxes. It seems really easy to miss stuff in the flood of messages unless you have great staff work! Besides, always happy to hear your voice. I'm home all morning tomorrow -- why don't you call when convenient and we can reconcile boards if that works for you.

Certainly not with that Totaler Kreig card! In there end I decided there was no way to win without getting the US in the war and decided if I waited any longer it would be too late!

246 9/21/2020 10:38:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message Just to let you know. I had the Hitler Declares War card and could have played it and thought I could after FDR was played. I finally found in the back of rules update from the GMT site I was in error. I have now marked my cards to show one prevents the other. Youíd think they would have put that on the darn card as they do with other sequence events.

Hope that 1 VP doesnít cost me the game!
245 9/21/2020 10:28:00 AM Summer 1942 Allied Message Oops, got too excited for my own good. Your are right about Voronezh, not Central front. (My eye saw one thing, my fingers typed another)
And yes, both fronts currently reduced.
Finally, the Stalingrad front moves to Stalino.
Hope that clears everything up....

Eliminated the IT armor corps to stay in the space.

That leaves a reduced GE (PZ corps.)

As for floating Italians. I have IT Inf corps at Bir Hacheim & El Agheila. Hopefully that fixes that problem for you. I now have an IT inf and armor corps in the Elim box.
243 9/21/2020 10:20:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message Marc, a couple of your movements that I need to be clear on.

Your move:
You won't get away with this, Adolf! The US enters the war -- play as Yellow Card as Wolfpack's have been played (twice, actually)

MV Ryazan -- WEST and CENTRAL fronts to Elets; SA 3 to Voronezh
You list the Central which I have at Kaluga which matches the journal. Iím assuming you meant the Voronezh?). Also, both those units were reduced which I suspect you have but just left off the paranthesis.

MV Voronezh -- STALINGRAD to , SA5 Voroshilovgrad; NORTHWEST front entrench (roll to follow)
In this part of your move you left off the Stalingrad arrival space. Right now in Voroshilvgrad I have the Volkhov Front + SU xxxx + the SA 5S you just moved there.

242 9/21/2020 9:26:00 AM Summer 1942 Allied Message PS I have an Italian corps floating around at the south edge of the map and not sure where he belongs. Do you have any other Axis forces in Africa, other than the stack just involved n the combat?
241 9/21/2020 9:13:00 AM Summer 1942 Allied Message You roll a 2 on SCU 5 chart, no hits unless you have a CC.
I roll a 5 on the 5 chart (shift for terrain) for 4 hits. Will wait on your losses and retreat before advancing!

6AX5 - Replacements

2 GE & 1 Axis replacement
231 9/20/2020 4:22:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message Marc, need you assistance. I didnít realize when the Siberians come on that those were the SU armies with the 1S, 2S, etc,. on them. You just drew one from Reserve and placed it as Rostov which is fine. Where are the other 4 Siberian shock armies? I need to switch them out for the correct counters.
230 9/20/2020 4:14:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message My question on Brit corps going to FS. I thought I remembered you had forgotten to do it and I finally found the journal entry so the crops as Basra, Alexandria, and Cairo were at FS. Your SR was at FS and no problem.
229 9/20/2020 4:11:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Message Hey Marc, getting to this late. Was off to a Rockler store today to buy wood working supplies and had to rest the back when I got back.

On your last move, the SR of corps, specifically the CW and the BR xxx. Maybe it was just a typo but you indicated the two crops you sent for Basra and Cairo as full strength. I had them on the map in the set up configuration which is reduced. I canít find in the log anytime they went to FS. Did you just omit the reduced strength status or can you find where they were upgraded to full strength?

224 9/19/2020 5:17:00 PM Summer 1942 Axis Return Strategy card to hand #20: 2 / Kammhuber Line

Message from Axis:
Per our discussion on Limited Supply to Tobruk
223 9/19/2020 4:46:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message I agree with your analysis. Regular connectors are not SR sea lines, but they do give you limited supply. In addition, control of Malta gives you full supply on Tripoli, Tunis.
So yes, Tobruk is in limited supply from the sea...
If that means your move remains the same, so does my move, so it is your turn either way!

222 9/19/2020 4:25:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message Just saw supply note after play, but of course we can redo. Let me take a look at actual question.

Replacement points: BR: 2, US: 2, SU: 4

Message from Allied:
Play for replacements. Back to you!
220 9/19/2020 4:15:00 PM Summer 1942 Allied Message Thanks for checking losses. Yes, demoralized by the roll, I looked at SCU chart by mistake. I really appreciate your catching that!
219 9/19/2020 11:49:00 AM Summer 1942 Axis Message Further on the supply question. I found in 2.1 some more definition. My take is that Tobruk would be in limited supply if surrounded based on 2.1 statements and 13.1 saying regular connectors.

Thus it seems the Malta control by the Axis is a special case offering full supply through that connection only.

What do you thinkj?
