354 2/19/2021 5:21:00 PM Spring 1916 Central Powers Message Hi Dan - I finally got my other computer up and running. To make things more difficult, I was using a Mac for work and got really used to it. I haven't used a windows computer in 4 years and am very rusty. You know what they say about old dogs and new tricks.

Anyway, yes, given the situation, I think starting a new game is a good idea. Please let me know what you'd like to do and we can take it from there.

I've already applied for some jobs, unemployment will kick in on Monday, and I will get some severance in about a month, so things will be OK here. I've been out of work before and am reasonably certain I can find something. From what I understand, things are starting to open up and the mood is somewhat upbeat about the economy, etc. If I don't get exactly what I want, I'll get something.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Jim
353 2/16/2021 11:59:00 AM Spring 1916 Central Powers Message Hi Dan - I'm sorry but I lost my job, so I lost the computer that had the game on it. I will need to download it again, then recreate the game from the Journal, so it's going to be a couple days. Again, I apologize.
352 2/11/2021 9:51:00 PM Spring 1916 Allies Message The Russians hold at Grodno with a 4 to 5 loss factor result thanks to another lucky die roll. I will flip the 2nd and 11th armies for the 4 loss factors. The German 8th army flips and either one corp is eliminated or both corps are flipped for the 5 loss factors.
You can't sustain these high loss factors with 5 German armies and 5 corp in the eliminated box as well as 2 AH armies and 5 AH corps eliminated. You have bled your armies too much (which is what the allies are trying to accomplish). I know this is discouraging and it doesn't help that you are getting bad die rolls on top of that. What are your thoughts? Do you want to start over? Switch sides? Continue, hoping to play some good cards for reinforcements? You are so far behind in war status that I think it is over.

German attack on Grodno from Insterberg: Spring 1916:
1st roll attacking GE 8th army and two GE corps for 9 factors under the 9-11 army column and with +1 for Von Francois.
2nd roll defending RU 2nd and 11th armies, RU corp and 1 factor fort for 8 factors under the 6-8 army column with no adds.
350 2/11/2021 9:39:00 PM Spring 1916 Allies Message You have been very unlucky in these series of counterattacks on Metz. The French hold with a 5 to 5 loss factor result. The French 7th army flips for my 5 loss factors. German (2nd) army and its replacement Pol corp are both eliminated. This leaves only 1 Pol corp in reserve.
No need to roll for the German 1st army attack on the Brest-Litovsk fort. The fort is destroyed with no loss to the German 1st army.

330 2/9/2021 8:28:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #44: 3 / Greece
Greece joins the Allies. Play of Greece does not prevent play of MEF or Salonika.

Message from Allies:
8AP6: I could attack Koblenz with one of the French armies in Metz but that would only have about a 50% chance of advancing. If it worked, I could move into Liege also and isolate the 3 German armies in Sedan. That would end the game but it is not a sure thing. Instead, I will use the Russians to punish the AH and Germans some more. So, 3 OPS
1. Attack: Uzhgorod: RU 6th and 7th armies attack the AH corp at Gorlice. 5A vs 1C will be automatic elimination of the AH corp. No need to roll. I will not advance.
2. Attack: Lublin: RU (5th) army attacks the AH (corp) in Ivangorod. 2A vs 0C which will automatically eliminate the AH (corp). I can't advance but this punches another hole in the CP line.
3. Attack: Grodno: RU 2nd and 11th armies only (the corp does not participate) attack the GE (4th) army in Bialystok. 6A vs 3A. I will not advance. You can roll this one.
I'll be back later today to wrap up the end of turn phases.
329 2/8/2021 8:57:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message There was a 22% chance of not moving the French out of Metz with that attack from Sedan and unfortunately for the Germans that percentage came up with the worst possible roll. Germans lose with a 4 to 5 loss factor result. French 7th army flips for the 4 loss factors and one German army (2nd??) flips for the 5 loss factors and the French remain in Metz for the time being.

327 2/8/2021 6:12:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message This is so frustrating. I desperately need replacements. Am not going to get them.

No card played, one Ops. Activate Sedan and attack Metz
15 - 6, no CC card.
326 2/6/2021 6:01:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message On the Brussels attack I will flip the BR 3rd army and eliminate the BR corp in Cambrai for my 5 loss factors. The Belgium army and the BR 1st army will advance from Ostend into Brussels.

On the Metz attack the 2 loss factors will not flip a French army so I will leave the FR 4th army in Verdun and advance with the FR 6th and 7th armies and destroy the Metz trench and besiege the Metz fort. Over to you for your 6th move of this Winter turn. I would either attack Metz from Sedan or move back from Sedan. The two and a reduced corp in Koblenz may not be able to stand if attacked by one of the French armies in Metz (the other one could not attack now because it is needed to besiege the fort).
325 2/6/2021 3:53:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message AP - LF inflicted 4

CP - LF inflicted 2

Units in Metz eliminated.

You will need to take respective losses from both attacks and then advance.

319 2/6/2021 2:42:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 3 / Moltke
May only be played in August or September 1914. CP Activation in Belgium or France costs 1 OPS per unit (not space) until the "Falkenhayn" card is played. All units must be activated in a space. Supersedes Sud Army and Eleventh army card effects.

Message from Allies:
8AP5: 3 OPS
1. Attack: Ostend: BR 1st army and BE army attack Brussels
2. Attack: Cambrai: BR 3rd and 4th armies and BR corp attack Brussels. 16 army vs 9 army. I will advance if possible.
3. Attack: Verdun: FR 4th, 6th and 7th armies attack Metz. 9 factors reduced to the 6-8 army column for the trench vs two reduced corp and 3 factor fort for 5 factors raised to the 6 corp column by the trench. I may advance. This will punch a hole in your Western Front and will require action to stabilize plug the hole.
318 2/6/2021 2:29:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message The battle at Lublin was bloody with 5 loss factors each due to the double 6 roll. I will flip the RU 5th army, eliminate one of the RU corps and flip the other corp for my 5 loss factors. One AH army is eliminated and its replacement corp is flipped for the AH 5 loss factors. I assume that this will be the AH 1st army in Ivangorod eliminated. This leaves no AH corp in reserve which is dangerous. However, the AH mandated offensive is met.

15 attack factors reduced to the 12-14 army column for mountains vs 3 factors. I will not play a CC card for this attack but you probably will so I'll let you roll. If you retreat or are eliminated I will advance with the 6th and 7th armies from Stanislaw. I will take losses from the 8th and 9th armies in Munkacs flipping both armies on 4 loss factors.

This counts as a SR action (see 9.3.3). May be played after Greek Entry provided Salonika is Allied controlled and subject to stacking limits.

War Status increased to 11

7AP6: I will play this as an event and do the Salonika invasion. SR the British corp from London and two BR corp from reserve to Salonika. This leaves only 2 BR corp in reserve. Allied war status will move up to Total war and this should give me a much better deck of cards to play with.
285 1/29/2021 4:22:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Well, the British hold at Cambrai with a 7 to 7 loss result. I will eliminate the BR 2nd army and flip its replacement corp for my 7 loss factors. You have 7 loss factors and lots of ways to take those losses. I would probably flip two armies and one corp but I'll leave that up to you. This leaves 4 British corp in reserve.

278 1/28/2021 8:16:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message Well, despite being badly outrolled the Russians still win at Uzhgorod with a 4 to 3 loss factor result. I will flip the 8th army in Munkacs for my 3 loss factors. You have 4 loss factors and must either retreat 1 space or take another step loss. 4 loss factors will probably flip the AH 11th army and eliminate the AH corp. Then you could eliminate the reduced corp to stay there with the (11th) army or retreat 1. If you retreat, I will advance with a couple of armies.

Good play for reinforcements. Since your deck is small that card may come back up soon. But it is always a challenge to decide whether to play it as an event to further the war status. I considered playing this as an event but decided on the OPS.

Message from Central Powers:
I am going to undo this card as you suggest
268 1/27/2021 11:59:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message WoW! That is a big operations movement. I want to point out a few things that will need to be changed or considered.
1. You can take out the Warsaw fort with an attack from a German army and using the 1st army in Warsaw is perfectly valid. This will be an automatic victory because you are guaranteed to get the 2 loss factors by attacking under the 5 army column. However, to do that you have to mark the space with an attack marker. This means by rule 11.1.6 that you can't move additional units into that space (Warsaw) if you are attacking with units there. You could attack Warsaw by the 4th army in Ivangorod and then move him into Warsaw as his advance after combat. However, this marks Ivangorod for combat and then you couldn't move the AH 1st army into Ivangorod as part of the same action round because Ivangorod would have an attack marker on it. This is a rule that doesn't make a lot of sense to me because you would probably be reinforcing an attack with more units if you could in the real war but this is how the rules are written. And you are allowed to move units through the space if it has an attack marker but just not end their move there. Again this is a game mechanic that makes attacks harder.

2. You can only use a CC card for one combat in each action round until it is discarded. You don't need it in the Warsaw fort attack because you will automatically destroy the fort anyway. See 9.5.4.4. The attack on Grodno would be GE 8th army and GE corp for 7 factors under the 6-8 army column with +2 for the two CC cards vs RU 2nd and 11th armies and RU corp and 1 factor fort for 8 factors under the 6-8 army column with no adds. This is a good attack but will leave your GE 8th army flipped at least. And the Flamethrower is a one time use asterick * CC card anyway.

You might want to use one of the 3 or 2 cards and save this one for replacements or even better for the event. I'm about to go to total war soon and get the better cards into the deck. You don't want to be too far behind.

Did you ever find where the corp at Plock received replacements? In my last log I pointed out where this corp was flipped in the Spring of 1915 from my Warsaw attack but could not find where he was unflipped. I think it should still be flipped. If you want, I can send the positions on the East Front for review. It is easy to miss something in the log or to move something on the map and then forget to undo it. I do it all the time.

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.
