316 11/13/2020 1:23:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message To start a new game I need to know if you want that we use the extended deck again or not
315 11/12/2020 5:44:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message you can also declare your first Guns of August attack(s), and also rolling battle dice if you want.
Consider that if I have WIdthdrawal CC I play it, in preference at Brussels if you attack there, or at Sedan if you don't attack Brussels
314 11/12/2020 5:42:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message if you want to draw cards and think about your next moves you can create the new game (selecting the CP for you and the AP for me, please), with or without extended deck as you prefer
313 11/12/2020 5:27:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message anyway I would do it tomorrow.
good night :)
312 11/12/2020 5:19:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message If I start the new game, shall I select again to play with optional cards? (for me you can decide, I have no big preference to play with or without)
311 11/12/2020 5:18:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message > So what in your opinion should I have done differently?

I don't remember very well, but I think you pursued a very offensive strategy with the allies on the Western front, which is probably not a good idea at game start.

> Yes, we could try again and I'll take AP.

I was saying that if we start again I would take the AP (to avoid confusion with the other simultaneous game were I'm playing with the CP).

> There's nothing I can do about it being so slow though, I'm just busy. If it bothers you then we don't have to try again

No, it's not a big problem (even less so as I'm playing two games now)
310 11/12/2020 5:09:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message So what in your opinion should I have done differently? I'm trying to pick up the strategy.

Yes, we could try again and I'll take AP. There's nothing I can do about it being so slow though, I'm just busy. If it bothers you then we don't have to try again.
309 11/12/2020 5:03:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message in fact in the meantime, as this game with you was very slow, I started a new game with another player.
As I have the CP also in the other game, if we start a new one with you I would rather take the AP (to avoid confusion)
308 11/12/2020 5:01:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message in fact I think you suffered too many losses with the French (without sufficient replacements).
however you can maybe try to continue until it is clearly lost (for the moment I have taken only 4 objectives)
307 11/12/2020 4:00:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message Oops, I didn't get the email notifications for this.

Well, I'm tempted to concede defeat. The situation looks pretty bad. Do you think it can be salvaged?
306 11/10/2020 9:22:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message needless to say: supply warning for all your forces on the Western front except Paris
305 11/10/2020 9:20:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message better than two 6s, 5-6-6 in these three battles against the poor French
304 11/10/2020 9:19:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message you are up
303 11/10/2020 9:17:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I'm sorry, two 6 in a row... (even if 4 was sufficient in this case)

4/1 LF

301 11/10/2020 8:43:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message Yes, I'll cancel the retreat
300 11/9/2020 4:25:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Maybe I should better stop waiting your decision about losses in Nancy, before rolling for Belfort
299 11/9/2020 4:24:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message 7/5 LF

I guess you lose 1 LF more to cancel retreat, so I eliminate FR9 and replacing corps (only 1 FRc remaining in RB!)

GE2 in Metz reduced

Seeing that you are not rolling, I roll for the remaining battles...
296 11/9/2020 3:22:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message The corps will retreat to Paris
295 11/9/2020 10:25:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I forgot to specify:
No advance at Cambrai
(I prefer to keep my 15A killing stack at Sedan)
294 11/9/2020 10:23:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Nancy is attacked with all armies from Metz and Strasbourg (15A due to trench shift)
293 11/9/2020 10:23:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message After deciding your retreat, you can roll and apply losses/retreats for Nancy (15A-9A) and Belfort (3A-5c), in that sequence
292 11/9/2020 10:21:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I'm sorry for the French.
5/2 LF
FR10 and replacing corps eliminated (you now have only 2 FRc in RB).
(FRc) must retreat 2 spaces: where?
No losses to Germans

278 11/9/2020 9:53:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message RU2 was permanently eliminated
277 11/9/2020 9:53:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message RU2 recreated full strength at Kharkov; FR1 half-strength at Paris
276 11/9/2020 9:51:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message CP RP:

AH 1: AHc to RB (now 7)

GE 2: flip both armies at Metz
275 11/9/2020 9:48:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Meanwhile I had a doubt about the elimination of SB2 army at Valjevo (where it suffered 5 LF), so I checked the rules to learn about this situation.

Combining rules 12.4.7-2 and 12.5.3, I think that SB2 ARMY IS PERMANENTLY ELIMINATED.

The replacing SBc was reduced and could not retreat; the retreat could not be ignored because the corps cannot lose its last step to cancel retreat
274 11/9/2020 9:47:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message How do you spend your RPs?
273 11/9/2020 9:43:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message French units at Château Thierry move to Nancy. French corps at Grenoble moves to Château Thierry
272 11/9/2020 9:41:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message Despite only moving one unit?

Right, I'll think of something else then.
271 11/9/2020 9:39:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message You need 2 OPS to activate Brussels, I'm sorry

Message from Allies:

BR1 at Brussels > Château Thierry
269 11/9/2020 9:23:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message I will cancel the retreat
268 11/9/2020 9:23:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Die roll 3 in the 9-11 army column gives 4 LF
267 11/9/2020 9:23:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message You're right, I'm looking at Verdun, not Nancy
266 11/9/2020 9:21:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Damned smartphone 😁
I meant 1 LF
265 11/9/2020 9:20:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message I meant 1 LS more or less than the right one
264 11/9/2020 9:20:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message > I believe it's 7/5 LF?

In this case it would not change the result, but I wonder which tables you are using 🙄 (also in a previous battle you declared a result which was 1 of more or less than the right one)
263 11/9/2020 9:18:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message Am I right? I don't think in this particular case it will make any difference though
262 11/9/2020 9:15:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message If you don't cancel retreat I advance with the two armies from Strasbourg to besiege Nancy
261 11/9/2020 9:14:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message I believe it's 7/5 LF?
260 11/9/2020 9:13:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message You are up for last action of the turn (and AP RP expenditure)
259 11/9/2020 9:12:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message 7/4 LF
I suppose you lose Fr1 and replacing corps (to cancel retreat)
I reduce GE2 and eliminate (GEc)

A GE attack adds +1 drm.

Message from Central Powers:
+1 at Nancy
256 11/9/2020 9:07:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message I advance with GE1-9-4 to Sedan
255 11/9/2020 9:05:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message When you have all armies in combat but some are reduced and you suffer 4 or 5 LF (3 LF in case of less robust armies e.g. Russians) you start by losing the reduced army then apply the additional LF(s) to the replacing corps, because if you can you have to take all the losses inflicted
254 11/9/2020 9:03:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message I see. I thought if there were no corps losses then an army loss is cancelled.

In that case, exactly as before, but the corps will retreat to Cambrai instead of (FR6)
253 11/9/2020 8:58:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Withdrawal CC rules are detailed in a dedicated section of the rules, 12.6
252 11/9/2020 8:57:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message 5/4 LF, German victory
GE5 reduced.
(FR6) eliminated, replacing FRc would be eliminated as well but one corps step loss is negated by Withdrawal (so it is only reduced).
You have to retreat one space FR9, F10 and (FTRc), not necessarily all to the same space
251 11/9/2020 8:55:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message On that basis, (FR6) and FR10 to Cambrai, FR9 to Château Thierry
250 11/9/2020 8:48:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message 4 losses each I think. I believe I suffer no step loss however due to Withdrawal?

Note that this card will force you to retreat (no more possibility to cancel retreat by taking an additional step loss).
I proceed rolling dice?
) You can also roll if you like)
247 11/9/2020 8:41:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Combat #6: 2 / Withdrawal
Defending units negate one required Corps step loss and instead must retreat 1 space. Full strength Attacking units may advance. If no Corps step(s) lost, an Army step loss may be negated. See rule 12.6 for details.

Message from Allies:
Yes. Does this count for all actions this round, or just at Sedan?

245 11/9/2020 7:45:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #27: 3 / Great Retreat
All RU units attacked this turn may retreat before combat. This must be announced before flank attempts, play of combat cards, and die rolls. No combat resolution takes place. The RU unit(s) must retreat 1 space. Full strength CP units may advance. Forts and non-RU units in space are still attacked. Aborted CP attacks still counts for MO purposes.

You can use the Allied RP (when you play a 4 or 5 OPS card for RP) to place a reduced SB army in Belgrade or Salonika if AP controlled, or a SBc in RB

225 11/8/2020 4:49:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message You're right. The right way to move without leaving yourself vulnerable is confusing to me sometimes.

So instead, the Russian units at Insterberg will move to Grodno. Dubno > Tarnapol. Ivangorod > Lublin


224 11/8/2020 4:43:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message remember that frotresses do not stop all enemy units: once a unit can besiege a fortress, other units can move past it (e.g. I can move an AH unit to Zhitomer if another one moves to besiege Dubno).

remember also that OOS units/spaces cannot be activated
223 11/8/2020 4:41:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message in this game each time you do something you should check if your armies can be put OOS (in case they can, you should know how to save them before end of turn, or decide if you don't care - but normally you should care)
222 11/8/2020 4:36:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message are you sure of your moves?
