502 10/13/2020 7:52:00 PM Fall 1916 Allies Message Thanks for advice as always. Would love to play again as long as you are not getting bored!
501 10/13/2020 7:33:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message One last thought.
I really like to play my 2 and 3 op cards as events to get them out of my deck. you had played 28 cards and I 29. But my average played card was 3.0 and yours 3.4.
500 10/13/2020 7:25:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message Sorry about Salonika, it was 1C but a 1-1 result is still possible

499 10/13/2020 7:24:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message The Balkans is an unimportant side show. With the AP, your goal is to force as many ops to clear it as possible. You shouldn't spend more ops than the CP.
if you delay playing Salonika or Greece. It can force the Austrians to keep 2 armies in the Balkans (1 for Salonika and 1 for Valona without expending any effort.

Ops are precious. Try to waste as few as possible.


498 10/13/2020 7:19:00 PM Fall 1916 Central Powers Message I am willing to start over. I feel like I have a clear edge. The Russians are beat up. I have the three areas to play tzar takes command and the war status for the fall of the tsar. So I should be able to get most of the VPS in Russia.
Some general thoughts on our game. I had bad luck drawing only 2 German reinforcements through turn 7.
If you had attacked vigorously in the west and with the Russians my Western front might have collapsed.
The CP player is vulnerable in turns 4-9. He doesn't enough armies to do everything he needs to do.
With the allies you want to balance your casualties so you get full use of your replacement cards. A 6 or 9A vs 15A is a good attack if your 2.5 casualties are going to be replaced and his 1 isn't. One of the key decisions in POG is where you fight. That is more important than the odds.
You should have played more cards as RPS. also ptry to play forcing moves so the CP can't play RPS.
It was much to easy for me to capture Baku. Because this can be the 3rd Russian VP space it is critical to defend it.
You spent too many ops to no purpose in Italy. You may have to spend them, but don't spend them until the CP makes a major effort there. If you play enough RP cards the Italians can hold out at the Bologna line unless the CP makes a major push.

I f you want to play again I am willing.
