265 1/22/2021 12:59:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #61: 4 / Maude
Any one attack made by BR units tracing supply to Basra may fire on the Army Table.

Message from Allies:
7AP3: 4 OPS
1. Move: Dubno: RU 3rd army to Brest-Litovsk joining the RU corp there, RU 6th and 7th armies move to Stanislaw joining the 10th army there.
2. Move: Mozyr: RU 11th army moves to Grodno joining the RU 2nd army and RU corp there.
3. Move: Kamenets-Podolski: RU cav corp moves to Tarnopol
4. Move: Tarnopol: RU 9th army moves to Munkacs joining the 8th army there.
264 1/22/2021 12:53:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message The German corp at Plock got flipped when I attacked from Warsaw in logs 195 and 196 in the Spring of 1915 and there is no record of it taking replacements at the end of that turn and at the end of the Summer 1915 turn.
And you are correct to assume that you are currently pretty secure at not being isolated at Warsaw even though Lomza does open somewhat of a hole in the line. It would take too many forces to surround him. Good move and a good roll on that attack!
263 1/22/2021 12:30:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message And I still have a full strength corps in Plock

262 1/22/2021 12:29:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message OK...I think I will advance the GE 1st army from Lomza and besiege Warsaw.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it would take an awful lot for you to put me out of supply there - essentially come around the back and get all the way to Czestochowa, or attack Ivangorod and then eliminate my units AND get behind them from the other side. I doubt you can do that in one turn.
261 1/22/2021 11:37:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message The von Francois CC card remains in effect if you want to use it again this turn.
260 1/22/2021 11:36:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message Thanks to von Francois the Germans win at Warsaw with a 7 to 5 loss factor result. RU 4th army and its replacement corp are eliminated and the other corp is flipped and retreats to Lublin for my 7 loss factors. The German (12th) army and its replacement corp are eliminated for the German 5 loss factors. This leaves 2 German corp in reserve and 6 Russian + 1 RU cav corp in reserve. You may advance with the German 1st army and besiege the Warsaw fort if you wish. Look this over and let me know if you advance.

7AP2: 2 OPS
1. Move: Kharkov: RU 6th and 7th armies move to Dubno joining the RU 3rd army there. RU 11th army moves to Mozyr.
2. Attack: Verona: It 1st army attacks the AH corp in Trent for the Italian mandated offensive. This will probably fil the Italian army but at least it will get rid of the Italian mandated offensive for this turn. I will play a CC card for this attack.

Allied player may examine all cards in the CP player's hand and then conduct Operations using this card.

Message from Allies:
7CP2: Since there are so few cards left in your deck, I pretty much can guess what you have left in your hand but I will play this as an event at this time to get rid of the "2" card. So, show me or list your cards and then I will do the 2 OPS points.

248 1/20/2021 5:36:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #15: 3 / British Reinforcements (4th Army)
4th Army, 1 corps.

Message from Allies:
7AP1: That is much better. The German army in Antwerp was in danger of getting isolated if I attacked Brussels and advanced into it which I could do without a trench there.
I will play this as an event and bring in the British 4th army in London joining the 3rd army already there. 1 more British corp to reserve, now 5.
247 1/20/2021 5:26:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Hi Dan - Yes, I did flip the GE 12 army in Plock as you suggested.

And no, I did not see that hole - thank you. Instead I will activate Essen and Antwerp, and move GE 2 (Army) from Antwerp to Sedan, and the replaced GE army that started in Essen also to Sedan. This leaves GE 9, 10, and (2) in Sedan.
246 1/20/2021 1:55:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message James, you left a big hole at Koblenz on your Western Front. I can pour thru Sedan, Koblenz and into Aachen and put most of your Western Front at Brussels, Antwerp and Liege out of supply. That would leave only the 3 armies and several corps at Metz, Strasbourg and Mulhouse able to respond and this could throw the game. Please reconsider. I looked back in the log to see if I had missed some unit that was at Koblenz but it looks like everything there had moved out. Also, I assume that you had flipped the GE 12th army at Plock for your attack on Warsaw last turn but I didn't see that you had confirmed that.

I will flip the French 7th army in Verdun for my 5 loss factors. One German army (the 9th) is eliminated and the replacement corp is flipped for the 7 loss factors. You may take another step loss (probably the reduced corp) to stay in Sedan since it is forrest or you can retreat 2 spaces (probably to Liege and Koblenz again). I will not advance at this time.

Message from Central Powers:
6 CP4 Playing as event to Breslau. Corps to Reserve

Hi Dan - Sorry about that. Yes, I eliminated the replacement corps from the reduced army. So the forces remain as you say. 9,10 GE armies in Sedan, 5 GE Army and (Corps) in Metz.

So 4 GE Corps and 1 AH (corps) in reserve.
221 1/13/2021 3:20:00 PM Summer 1915 Allies Message How did you take your last 5 loss factors on the Verdun attack? If you eliminated the GE corp replacement for the reduced GE (4th) army then it would be:
Sedan: GE 9th and 10th armies
Metz: GE 5th army and GE (corp) with level 1 trench and 3 factor fort.

By the way, Ostend has a level 1 trench as well as Paris, Verdun, Nancy and Belfort which was left out of your Western front Allied positions.
220 1/13/2021 3:14:00 PM Summer 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #34: 3 / British Reinforcements (3rd Army)

Message from Allies:
5AP3: I should take replacements too but these events are important too in the long run. Play this as an event and bring in the BR 3rd army in London. Two more British corps go into reserve. Now 4 BR corps in reserve.
219 1/13/2021 3:13:00 PM Summer 1915 Allies Message There was a FR corp at Chateau-Thierry along with the FR 5th army early in the war. However, in log 36 the FR 5th army moved to Belfort and the FR corp moved to Rouen. In that log 36 the two FR corps in Belfort moved one to Melun and one to Nancy joining the FR 1st and 2nd armies. These positions were verified in log 83. The log doesn't mention anyone else moving to Chateau-Thierry since then. You can easily type in a word in the view log search and come up with all entries that have that word. Misspellings though are overlooked.

So the Western Front should be as you listed except there is no one at Chateau-Thierry and one FR corp at Melun.

You certainly are determined to maintain your replacements. That was the last "4" card in your current deck and lots of 3's and 2's left.
218 1/13/2021 10:31:00 AM Summer 1915 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Replacement Points #25: 4 / High Seas Fleet

2. Move: Rouen: French corp moves to Paris
215 1/11/2021 8:56:00 PM Summer 1915 Allies Message The 4 roll by the French under the 12-14 army column generates 5 loss factors on the Germans. However, the Germans win at Verdun with a 7 to 5 loss factor result. I will eliminate the French 3rd army for 6 factors and flip the replacement corp for the 7th loss factor and then eliminate the reduced corp to stay in Verdun. This leaves 4 French corp at full strength and 1 reduced French (corp) in reserve. The Germans have 5 loss factors and must eliminate the German (4th) army in Sedan for 3 of those 5 loss factors and replace it with a corp from reserve. Either this corp is flipped and the reduced corp in Metz is eliminated or this replacement corp at Sedan is eliminated for the 4th and 5th loss factors. Your choice of course.

This roll is for that siege. Lomza falls on anything but a 1 roll.
198 1/7/2021 7:36:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Russians win at Ivangorod with a 4 to 3 loss factor result. Russian 5th army in Lublin is flipped for 2 loss factors and the Russian corp in Warsaw is flipped for the remaining 1 loss factor. AH has 4 loss factors which will probably be used to eliminate the AH corp and flip the AH 7th army. (You could choose to eliminate the AH 7th army and be left with a corp and reduced corp in Ivangorod but that would leave no AH corp left in reserve.) No retreat since both attackers are reduced even though they won the battle.

Against Plock it will be 3 army vs 2 corp. Against Ivangorod I will not attempt a flank attack just a straight 4 army vs 4 army column attack.

190 1/7/2021 4:50:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #29: 2 / 11th Army
The GE 11th Army (only) and any CP Corp(s) may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. If a second CP army is present, then the activation cost for the space is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.

Message from Central Powers:
5 CP6 Play for Ops

Activate Tannenberg for movement, GE 1 Army to Lomza - Besiege, GE Corps to Plock. (Can besiege, but not attack RU forts)

Activate Rize for attack - attack Batum

For previous losses:

Flip GE 2 Army Antwerp, 3 Army, and corps Brussels = 5

Eliminate AH 3 Army, reduce corps Uzhgorod = 3
189 1/7/2021 2:56:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message One note that a lot of players miss and I overlooked it in my early games involves having full strength and reduced strength corps in reserve. If you eliminate the reduced AH (3rd) army for 2 of your 3 loss factors at Uzhgorod then you must use the full strength AH corp for its replacement. You can't choose to use the reduced corp. See 12.4.4. Then you would reduce one of the corps for the 3rd loss factor. This will leave you with the 11th army, one full strength AH corp and one reduced (AH) corp in Uzhgorod for 4 combat factors and only a reduced AH corp in reserve. Alternatively, you could reduce the 11th army and the AH corp but that would leave only 2 combat factors there.
188 1/7/2021 2:46:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message I will remind you that you still have a Turkish mandated offensive to make this turn or you will lose a Victory point.

Message from Allies:
5AP1: I'll start with 2 OPS and get the Italian mandated offensive done. This game is almost always presents tough decisions about what you want to do, what you need to do and you never have enough resources to do it all.
1. Move: Udine: It (2nd) army moves to Trieste and destroys the trench and besieges the fort.
2. Attack: Maggiore: It (3rd) army attacks Villach. 1 army vs 2 corp even though the trench and mountains would reduce the attack two columns, you can't go below the 1 army column. I will not play a CC card for this attack but this will satisfy the Italian mandated offensive.
