36 2/9/2021 5:44:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Ah, work, the bane of wargamers everywhere...

Feel free to delete this game when you are ready amd we will see you around the tournament!
35 2/9/2021 4:11:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message I totally understand, I too had a bit more free time to play during our first game when I could bring my laptop to work. At the moment I can only play when I get home in the evenings. Best of luck to you as well in the ladder! It was a fun set of games. Take care!
34 2/9/2021 10:26:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message Marc, I am going to call it quits. I am just too busy to keep going right now, but I hope later if we both have the time we can start up again in BtB or perhaps some other game.

It has been a great experience playing you and I really like your opening!

This game I will be honest, I mainly started to see your reaction to the opening. I made a mistake in that I shoud have attacked Kovel rather that B-L with the GE6.

I think probably for the AL, keeping the AX from getting next to Kiev on T2AX1 is key. Odessa doesn't really matter, but penatration past it does, so I will be thinking about the best way to accomplish those two things.

I was very lucky to beat you in the first round of the tournament and have learned so much from playing you.

Thank you and best of luck in the next round!

15 2/8/2021 5:14:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Noted! Remind me to never so that!

I should be up in an hour. Things went pretty much as I expected so far, looking forward to your response...
14 2/8/2021 5:01:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message Funny you ask that question. Most opening moves deny that possibility. Another reason I like this opener is because it lays yet another trap in the 'retreat to Minsk' scenario. If you do that, now Pskov is open for an advance by the 4thPz from Memel and encirclement of the West front still happens. Now, if the 4thPz is in Pskov vs Dvinsk the Allied player is scrambling to cover routes to Stalin in the North leaving Leningrad wide open from the start and possibly losing an OP to use in the South. I don't have my map in front of me to discuss the other problems like what to do with the SUa in Riga if the 4thPz is in Pskov but I feel like I've won a super quick game in this scenario.
13 2/8/2021 4:43:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message No time for move right now but a question-- what would you think of retreating to Minsk vs Pskov?

I will move later this evening...
12 2/8/2021 4:36:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message NW -> SUa. Retreat to Pskov via Riga.

Flip GE9th. Advance at will.

9 2/8/2021 9:32:00 AM June 1941 Axis Message For years the question has been, is it Brady or is it Belichick? Looks like it was Brady...
8 2/7/2021 6:14:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message I'm still playing with house money, so that makes me feel better. They gave me a free $100 bet when I signed up and I won betting on the Chiefs to beat the Bills. So then i took that money and spread it around, $50 for the Chiefs to win the Superbowl and the rest on various prop bets. Even if I lose them all, I would break even from my original sign-up. I just consider it entertainment spending and never go over my limits.
7 2/7/2021 4:08:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message I am way to big a coward to bet on sports, but I will be rooting for the Bucs. I have nothing against KC, just like Brady.

Even though he has obviously sold his soul to the Devil. Nobody can be that rich, handsome, successful, non-aging, married to a supermodel, etc. w/o that...
6 2/7/2021 4:01:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message They recently allowed sports gambling where I live, I have about 5 different wagers on tonight's game. I will be glued to the screen as well. Cheers!
5 2/7/2021 3:17:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message Heavily engage on the Superbowl front -- I will start the game tomorrow. ;-)

2 2/6/2021 9:28:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message I will be the bully for our round 5 -- the weak, ineffectual bully...

It will be tomorrow before I can get going tho'

I like to play and am enjoying this. It is awesume to watch your moves...
