320 11/20/2020 3:02:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Ah yes, it would be an "Early Allenby" for sure. I've never tried it -- of course with YLD not yet around and Yudenitch in abeyance I guess we know where it would head. I usually end up cycling the pair of them at least once unless NE is truly naked in some egregious way. Of course you can always cycle Allenby once if you want to, now without fear of getting him wrong-way-round with Sinai on the second time. Choices!
319 11/20/2020 2:57:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Tough decision there. My other card is a '2'. I wanted to Trench in Italy. I wanted RPs. I have less than a 1 in 3 chance of drawing Allenby. But playing Sinai is never going to be "easy." I'm not even sure I *want* Allenby. I still have 2 BR armies waiting! Ugh. This game is ridiculous.

I just made an account for you (and told it to email you a temporary password, etc). See if you can log into it, and if so, see if you can edit the page, add pages, etc, so I can know if I need to add more rights to it.
