100 9/24/2020 8:57:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message No, I mean I said I activated paris for movement, but forgot that I needed two activations to move the units in Chateau Thierry - French Army and BEF. So when it came time to make the moves, I just left Paris alone. Did not move anything there. I moved both armies out of Chateau to Cambrai, moved the army in Bar le Duc to Chateau, and then moved the RUssian army out of Kharkov.
99 9/24/2020 8:53:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Do not see Paris movement ...did u mean FR9 remains in Bar le Duc?

98 9/24/2020 4:41:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message Forgot I needed 2 Activations for Chateau, so just skipped Paris.
97 9/24/2020 11:28:00 AM September 1914 Allies Message 3 RU from Kharkov to Rovno = 1

Message from Central Powers:
10th Army into Essen. Place 2xGEc into the Reserve box.
94 9/24/2020 10:33:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message Thanks for the offer..I own all the Ancients & its expansions. The guy i regularly play with owns all the Nap & Memoir ones. so we have it covered.
93 9/24/2020 9:46:00 AM September 1914 Allies Message RU mandatory offensive. You can start with your first action round.

I'm glad to hear you have those games - I'd like to get the Napoleonics one. The Ancients set that I got on ebay (or somewhere) has one or two of the expansions. Mem 44 was a game I played with my other son until he lost interest. I have several of the expansions - but put them all in one box. I have it up for trade on BGG. With them grown up, it didn't make sense to keep. I really only play PBEM - there is a group here but with the COVID I haven't met up with them yet. Let me know if you're interested in the expansions, I can get it out and see which ones I have and let you know.

85 9/23/2020 8:28:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Discard Strategy card #2: 2 / Wireless Intercepts

Message from Central Powers:
84 9/23/2020 8:27:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message C & C Ancients is one of my fav games. I also play their version of Nap, WWI and Medieval. Been playing Mem '44 & BattleCry for a long time.

83 9/23/2020 9:07:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message So with regard to this game, do I click end turn, or do you, or do both of us? I assume it handles the shuffling of the cards back into the deck and everything.

I'm also going to send you a screenshot of my Vassal set up so we can verify that we're on the same page there. Looking forward to winter!
82 9/23/2020 9:04:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message It's funny, I have Washington's war, but have never played it. I tried to get my son to play, but it was just too complicated for him, especially since he was just humoring me by letting me explain it. We played Command and Colors Ancients instead, that was more his speed. And we haven't played anything since...

I've got my hands full at the moment - I would probably be willing to play it later. It looks like it's a little less complicated than this one with a lot fewer special exceptions, etc.
81 9/23/2020 9:00:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Thank you for the correction - I did not notice those British units in the NE. And yes, I missed seeing that 1/2 strength army in Chateau, so will flip that (5 FR) instead of the 6 FR in Paris
80 9/23/2020 8:58:00 AM August 1914 Allies Discard Strategy card #7: 2 / Severe Weather

Message from Allies:
Discarding this CC card = #7 - Severe Weather
79 9/22/2020 9:11:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message In your replacement points u flipped FR6 in Paris. Did u mean FR5 in chauteau?
Also will u flip the 3xBRc in the NE.

Also u can discard any CC cards in your hand before drawing a new hand.

78 9/22/2020 9:09:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I believe you are right...So Turkey does not enter the war & the LW cards should not be added. Acts should take care of this when we end turn

77 9/22/2020 8:53:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message It says in the 1914 special rules (on the info card) that "war commitment level" isn't checked on the august 1914 turn. Is that the same as War status?
76 9/22/2020 8:40:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Replacement Phase

Flip AH1 in Tarnow
Flip AH4 in Przemsk
Recreate GE2 in Essen
Flip GE7 in Mulhouse

With LW Turkey enters the War

75 9/22/2020 6:51:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I will flip Russian Corps at Dubno, and place the 3 RU army in Kharkov = 3 RU RP's, 1 lost

Flip 6 FR army in Paris, flip 9 FR army in Bar le Duc

No more RP's possible
74 9/22/2020 6:46:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message As for the BR replacement points...you can use them to flip your Brits in the NE.


73 9/22/2020 6:41:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message The war status table has CP=4(Limited war cards should be added to draw pile)
Since Allies=0 total =0
I believe VP=11 .. CP has taken Brussels.

72 9/22/2020 6:39:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Looks as if no unit is not supplied.
No fort is being besieged.
There is no VP to add or subtract during the War Status Phase.
No we can work on our replacements.

71 9/22/2020 6:35:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Thank you for noticing that. It makes perfect sense as it would be awfully handy to just teleport units to holes in your lines, etc. Let's have that go to Paris.
70 9/22/2020 6:32:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Just noticed this - im not going to press this but in SR and Corps coming out of the reserve box must be placed into a location containing a supplied unit of the same nationality. Amiens was empty.

69 9/22/2020 5:43:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #5: 2 / Putnik
May only be played in 1914 and 1915. SB units get a +1 drm for an attack or defense.

Message from Allies:
Playing as replacements.

This is end of action phase - can you please check the other phases? Then I will place my RP points.

From what I understand, at this point I think my British ones will go to waste as I have nothing to spend them on.
68 9/22/2020 3:04:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message The next round of Washington's War is starting Oct 22

Replacement points: A: 0, BR: 1, FR: 1, IT: 1, RU: 2

Message from Allies:
Playing this as a replacement - My Vassal set shows that I get 1 for BR as well. I don't want to get out my actual set to check - is this a thing that was changed, or an error?
58 9/22/2020 10:09:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #13: 4 / Falkenhayn
May be played on Aug/Sep 1914 turns only after the "Moltke" is played or without restriction beginning in Fall 1914. Cancels the effects of "Moltke". Allows play of "Place of Execution"

War Status increased to 4

Message from Central Powers:
then i have to play this as an event..
57 9/22/2020 8:23:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message I played Moltke card as an event. Forgot to add a note on the play, so letting you know just in case.


56 9/21/2020 6:56:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message looks like we are in synch.

55 9/21/2020 4:40:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Eric - no, the one I am using does not have Sedan as a VP spot.
54 9/21/2020 2:33:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message just noticed that there are two different maps in regard to VP. I believe that we agreed to play the tradition campaign game since we are both relatively new to the game. On the modified map Sedan is shown as a VP location. Which map are you using?

53 9/21/2020 2:30:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #9: 3 / Moltke
May only be played in August or September 1914. CP Activation in Belgium or France costs 1 OPS per unit (not space) until the "Falkenhayn" card is played. All units must be activated in a space. Supersedes Sud Army and Eleventh army card effects.

Message from Allies:
52 9/21/2020 12:41:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #8: 3 / Race to the Sea
CP units may now end movement in Ostend, Calais, and Amiens. Card may also be played as an event after CP WS is at 4.

Message from Central Powers:

51 9/21/2020 8:24:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Good Morning Eric. Yes, I could advance with BEF as it is full strength. But I won't. BEF will remain in Chateau Thierry with reduced FR 5 Army.

Also, this attack met my MO for FR.

Your action round.
50 9/20/2020 9:04:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message forgot to say that GE3 retreats to Liege

49 9/20/2020 9:02:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message it is GE2 that is eliminated

48 9/20/2020 9:01:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message since i have to take 5 losses if possible... eliminate replace with a corp which is reduced & eliminated to fulfill losses...do u advance?

47 9/20/2020 8:04:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message CP loss number is 5

Allies win battle, German retreat one space.

45 9/20/2020 7:58:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Flank is unsuccessful. I have no combat cards to play.

I assume you don't either, as none of the CP mobilization cards have a CC that would apply in this situation.

Will move 2 RU Army to Lublin
42 9/20/2020 6:08:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message you dont improve units on the map with SR. With SR u can bring new Corp units from the Reserve box. There might be an event card that allows that.(I know the Central Powers have at least one.)
You build up units by playing cards as RP. But that would happen at the end of the turn.

41 9/20/2020 6:02:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message AH4 flips. AH3 advances into Lemberg

40 9/20/2020 5:59:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message i forgot to apply the trench. The GE2 flips. GE1 advances into Brussels

39 9/20/2020 5:43:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Eric - I have one question that I can't find in the rule book...can you use SR to build up a corps into an army or turn a flipped army into a full strength one?

Thanks -
38 9/20/2020 5:19:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message CP combat loss - 3

Lemberg 3rd RU flips twice, corps flips once - 0 strength corps retreats to Dubno

You win this combat also.

You can make your advances

36 9/20/2020 5:11:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Just realized there was trench there - good thing you did not succeed. You move one column left on your attack, outcome is the same.

I move one column to the right, outcome is a loss of 3, not 2.

I flip BE army twice, corps once, have 0 strength corps, retreat to Calais.

Again, you will have to assign loss of 3 Which is good as you will actually lose something...

25 9/20/2020 8:31:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message I apologize - it has been years since I played. I will still activate that card for 4 ops, will move BEF and 5 French army to Chateau Thierry, BE army to Brussels, Russian 3rd army to Lemberg. That ends my round.
24 9/19/2020 9:31:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Multi-national attacks are not so easy in this game. You need to have a space that contains units of all involved nationalities. 12.1.11.1
Also, u need to declare if u r playing a CC then allow the defender to declare if he wants to play one.

23 9/19/2020 8:52:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Must take 7 loss factors in Sedan, then attack back.

Message from Allies:
Card negates the flip, but in the case of a flank attack, the unit flips, does the combat, then flips back.

So this combat roll is on the 2 column.

Regardless of the outcome, even if I "win" I still retreat 1 (will retreat to Cambrai)...and flip back.
16 9/18/2020 9:34:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message LF=5 FR5 would flip ... i think the card allows u to negate it. Also, not sure but i think u will Battle at CF=3
