186 2/13/2021 9:46:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message I would prefer to start a new party.

It was good to see the way how the Eastern front works - it seems that you have implemented the Schlieffen plan in Russia. :-)

I have grasped the basic, as they work I practice, and also learnt to play close attention to map.

There is still a lot to master, I am sure.

I know you are still getting refreshed on PoG. I am also experimenting with some moves. It's up to you to play on or not. I am good either way.

149 2/10/2021 5:46:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message I found some issues that need to be corrected before the AP player takes action 5.
The Russian corps in Szawli was not eliminated. It also did not cause any damage to the German corps.
* RU Corps: AP Eliminated to Szawli
* Szawli: RU Corps => (RU Corps)
<> - Added Russian corps back as depleted.
<> - It must retreat one space.
* Fort Destroyed at Grodno.
<> - The GE army attack on Grodno hit for 3 factors so the first 2 eliminated the corps and the 3rd takes out the fort.
* Przemysl: AH 4th Army => (AH 4th Army)
<> - The Pleve card means the Russian def roll of 1 + 1 for 2 is 2 hits
<> - so the AH 4th army is depleted.
<> - I think once the Russian corps in Szawli retreats, the board will be ready for the AP player to take Action 5.

I also realised that Cambrai may not be that important when looking at the bigger picture.

anyway, thx for the tips - it showed that (i) there are a plethora of options even when the situation looks dire; and (ii) taugth me the importance of "in depth" defense, i.e. being placed from 1 space from the opponent.

124 2/9/2021 7:09:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Maybe the brits sacrificing the BEF to become a full strength corps and moving. I think that would force the Germans to attack again and it would leave the northern flank exposed. The good thing would be it would eat up turns that the CP must keep playing OPs and maybe the AP can get in some other cards to take advantage of overextended German lines in the Fall14 turn.
123 2/9/2021 7:03:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Andras, I am relooking at your original question, I see that you are suggesting an attack by the French armies in Verdun on Sedan. That is not a bad idea as long as something is placed in ChateauT just in case the battle doesn't go well. It might force the Germans to give up Sedan or take an army step loss. Of course it means probably another French army step loss as well and not much chance of moving into Sedan to retake it without exposing Verdun to attack.
122 2/9/2021 6:28:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message LOL. There are some many possibilities. 2 OPs - Move Paris and Cambrai. French army to Dijon and corps to ChateauT with the British army and the British Corps move to Amiens. I think that fills gaps and gives the breathing room that the AP needs to play other cards like armies and RPs which are dire to the cause. I would even say RPs are more important that army reinforcements at this time. The additional armies will come back when the deck gets reshuffled. So use the high RPs for those cards now.

121 2/9/2021 6:17:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Just checking again and found an even better plan. 2 Ops Move Paris & Cambrai. Both BR & FR corps go to Belfort. French army to Amiens and British army to ChateauT.
120 2/9/2021 6:05:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Thinking about Belfort a little more, and that part of the move could be ignored as long as there is a plan to deal with the Germans in 2 turns, because I just realized the Germans could not move in after another attack because the army will still be at a reduced strength. This doesn't mean Belfort can be ignored completely, only that shoring up the southern flank could be done next turn. Of course that would mean delaying the entrance of the French 7th Army.
119 2/9/2021 5:45:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Adding an army in Paris is needed but i think shoring up the line is more important for this action round. Of you have 3 ops, then I would place move markers on Cambrai, Paris, and Nancy. I would move the British units in Cambrai, amry to ChateauT and corps to Amiens. Then the corps in Paris to join the brits in ChateauT and use the op for the army to attempt a level 2 trench. This would block the Germans from making any large enveloping movements. The move in Nancy would be to shore up the southern flank by moving one army to Belfort. Also remember to attempt a level 2 trench in Nancy. If the AP only has a 2 ops, then skip Paris. If the AP happened to have a 4 ops, then I might move the corps to Nancy to raise the total defensive combat value to 6.

117 2/9/2021 4:58:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message I am at a bit of a loss, so would welcome any advice just to make sure I last until Fall 1914.

If I play reinforcement, I may get an army in PAris or London, deosn't really matter.

By playing a 3 OPS card, you active Strasbburg, MEtz and Sedan, and complete the same envelopment you did in the previous game, effectively putting Verdun and Nancy OOS, with an Army in ChT, Bar le Duc, Melun and Orleans.

So, against that I would have a AF6 force in Paris, trying to breakthrough any of the AF5 armies.

However, this I can do right now, by attacking from Verdun or Cambrai (AF5).

so, why wait? (other than hoping you do not have a 3 OPS card, which seems unlikely)

Or what else am I missing?

Your input is much appreciated.
116 2/9/2021 4:38:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message well, well, fort defenders of Belfort carry the day!

this means a flip to the 7 ARmy, which, thus, cannot advance.

114 2/9/2021 4:33:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message if the 2 armies in Nancy were to attack Belfort, would the fort +2 join them in attack?
113 2/9/2021 4:19:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message True.
112 2/9/2021 4:15:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message there was no need for aroll, was there? AF3 always roll at least 1 hit.

In another game it was pointed out to me that this version 3.4.5 is missing the Austrian corps in Trent as part of the setup for the historical Ted Raicer setup. Would you mind if I add that to the map?"

First attack is 3rd, 4th, 5th armies attacking Sedan for AF15. Attempt flanking +1. No CC for the CP. Any losses will be taken by 5th army. I assume an advance will not be an option, but if advance is available and 5th army is full strength then move in both 3 & 4 armies. If 5th army is depleted then only advance the 3rd army.

Second attack is 1st & 2nd armies attacking Brussels for AF10 vs DF7. No CC for the CP. Any losses to 2nd army. If an advance is available please move in with the 1st army.

I will let you play any CC and roll for these attacks. File loaded.
