590 5/15/2021 12:11:00 AM Winter 1945 Axis Message Richard,

Sounds good man.

My one prior play of this game, I had a very similar experience. My Soviets were able to hang on (just) from Axis getting an auto victory, but then Totaler Krieg occurred, and I could never make enough head-way to get back to Germany. I didn't try the Normay route, and that is interesting. The real problem is the lack of supplies (Limited supply) making Offensives so expensive there.

Thanks for the excellent gaming experience. If you are good with it, I will let Jeff know we have called the game, as I know Round 2 is imminent.

I would offer an immediate rematch, or alternate game, but I think I would be overextended between work and the other current ladders (this one, PoG, PuG, and IoG) which I currently have matches upon. Later this summer I expect I will be a bit more free, and as I stated before, you are top-tier on my lookup to play again!

All my best wishes in your next round.

Mark
589 5/13/2021 5:23:00 PM Winter 1945 Allied Play Strategy card as Ops/Event #15: 3 / Casablanca
Treat all Neutral spaces as Allied for VP purposes. PREREQ: May play if Allies control Oran & Algiers, or Syracusa, & there are no Axis controlled spaces in Libya or Egypt. (Subtract 1 VP for each currently neutral VP space.)

Message from Allied:
AL AR 16.3 Yellow Event
I don't understand the neutral spaces references, but the OPS are useful. If I understand rule 18.2, however, the iron space in Sweden is now under allied control. Personally, I do not see the connection.

M > Catanzaro, Orel, Kaluga

M 1/3 CW 1 Catanzaro > La Spezia; CW SCU Catanzaro > Rome

M 2/3 SU UKR 3 Kaluga > Vyazma; SU Baltic 2 Kaluga > Bryansk

M 3/3 1 SU SCU Orel > Vyzama; 1 SU SCU Orel > Bryansk


Looking at victory conditions: I need to get the VP to 0 and/or capture all the supply centers in Germany. I don't see that all happening in 15 rounds; especially with your skills of maneuver. And another hand like my current one will not allow me to blitzkrieg. Therefore, I am content to concede and chalk this up to an entertaining learning experience.

584 5/12/2021 11:47:00 PM Winter 1945 Axis Message Richard,

Man, you are just a great guy with whom to game.

I hope that you actually believe I am ahead before conceding. I think I am ahead, but with all of 1 game under my belt before this, I think I could really be a poor judge!

I absolutely want to finish this one out to see how it ends. You are in my top-tier of gents to lookup for further PBEM gaming.

my best,
Mark
583 5/12/2021 2:24:00 PM Winter 1945 Allied Message Hey Mark, I don't think we will finish by the end of the week. Here's what I am thinking. I will concede the game to you, since I think I won't be able to meet the victory conditions in the time remaining. However, I would like to play out the game to the end. That way Jeff can get the next round started and we will get a position in the new round. On a personal note, let me say that this has been one of the most enjoyable attempts at learning a game for me and for that I want to thank you. Anytime you need an opponent, please consider me.

Mark, Here is another discrepancy between the card facsimile in vassal and the card description in ACTS. ACTS says to place the SU 1-6 tank armies in the RB. However, the card facsimile in vassal says to place them on the map as if they are LCUs. This is also how the card is described in the rule book.

I will gladly put them in either place, which ever you think is fair.

You have advance options as well with that Allied armor...

GE10 flips for 3, GEPz for 2.
You can't take 5 even if you elim an Allied XXXX, so you have choice on which unit to flip or Elim.

534 4/27/2021 11:18:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message No worries at all Richard.
533 4/27/2021 10:34:00 AM Summer 1944 Allied Message Thanks for catching my blunder, Mark. The Soviets will stand down in Voronezh, thereby, making that point available in Calais. Thanks again.
532 4/27/2021 9:44:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message Hi Richard,

I believe Calais will cost 2 OPS to activate (US+BR) and (as you correctly stated) Jutland 3 OPS, and 1 more for Vorenzh. One too many I believe. :-)

C 1/5 US3, (1), BR (2) Calais > Antwerp
AL 12A -1 urban = 9A +1 drm/event v AX 9A ?

AL 6A -urban, river = 4A no CC v AX 2A ?

losses from LUC
UKR1 advances if possible

The first 2 I am unsure of.

I just realized that the spring/summer restriction on this card means that this is probably the only chance to use it, and I have a strong feeling, I will regret it.
530 4/25/2021 11:20:00 AM Summer 1944 Allied Message Mark, I misread a card and therefore would like to cancel my ONE OPS move and make a different play; although, it may not be the wisest. So please disregard the PREVIOUS message.
