70 9/30/2020 4:07:00 PM Fall 1941 Axis Message No problemo.
69 9/30/2020 4:02:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message Would you be up for trying again but this time only dealing me 6 cards with the 7th card be virtual Ind Evac.?

It will give me a better chance of making it a competitive game
68 9/29/2020 9:27:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message It was nice to get Ind Evac on turn 1.

The problem is finding enough Ops and action rounds to make the necessary moves in the North and South as well as SR more corps onto the board and Joe out of Moscow, as well as kill two action rounds to get your fronts on the board as well as burn another action round for the Desert army. (You cant ignore that as we saw in the last game)
67 9/29/2020 8:31:00 PM Fall 1941 Axis Message Like I said, I was fortunate to draw it this Turn. There are still 9 other cards in my Draw Pile. I was frustrated the past couple of games because I never got to use PGG to its full effect. This shows just how powerful the card can be.

The Allies started strong with IE right off the bat. And it looked like you had a lot of OPS in your Turn 2 hand. But it seems the Soviets just couldn't stabilize that front line.
66 9/29/2020 8:11:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message I forgot all about that pesky PZ 2 card

I guess I have to concede At this point
65 9/29/2020 7:26:00 PM Fall 1941 Axis Message Also, all the Soviet units in and around Moscow are now OOS.

31 9/24/2020 7:54:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message I understand that. However the tricky part is finding enough Ops to move both in the South and the North, and still find a time you can burn a turn to play your fronts.
30 9/24/2020 6:25:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message The main point is the Allies need to defend in depth in the South, as the terrain is too wide open.

That is not possible in north, as there is not many opportunities to do much exploitation after combat due to the terrain.
29 9/24/2020 6:23:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message As an example, suppose I have the PGG card.

Now you move back in the South, maybe the SOUTH Front in Kishinev goes to Uman, and the SUa in Vinnitsa goes to Kiev, or Chernigov/Cherkassi.

I move the GE 2Pz from Minsk to Tarnopol-Rovno, where the GE 4th is. They attack the OOS SUa and autokill it. The GE 4Pz advances to Galatz, and attacks the SUa in Odessa. It will autokill that and advance into Odessa.

That's a total of 8 spaces moved, and now I have a supplied Panzer Army behind your front lines.

You will be forced to play another OPS card, becuase you can't remain stationary and play your Front Reinforcement card. If you do, then I would move in the GE 1Pz and GE pzc from Lublin to Odessa, and then all three units will attack the SOUTH Front in Uman next Action Round (or whatever Soviet unit is there). Then all three units will be able to advance three hexes in any direction.
28 9/24/2020 6:13:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message I wouldn't leave Leningrad open. I would garrison it with at least a SUa. This would force me to play NORDLIGHT, and at least for Action Round, I wouldn't be attacking anything else.

I always play things "swingy". I try to move my foot units to the front lines in both the north and south. And then pile my panzers together in 2 or 3 hexes. Then I see where I think the opening is, and direct my panzers that way. Their 5MF allows me to move all over the map.
27 9/23/2020 11:29:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Im trying ti set myself up to get my fronts played in the next action round or two
26 9/23/2020 10:09:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message I have a 5 op card at my disposal.

Down south I want to move Vinnestsa and Kishinev

That leaves 3 Ops for the north

Is it a big mistake to leave Leningrad open?

Do I move out of or defend Pskov?
25 9/23/2020 8:49:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 5 / Fall Blau
