17 2/25/2021 11:04:00 AM August 1914 Allies Return Strategy card to hand #10: 3 / French Reinforcements (10th Army)

Message from Allies:
GOing to play different card.
16 2/23/2021 9:11:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message By our special tournament rules, the British mandated offensive on turn 1 converted to a French mandated offensive if you are thinking the British must attack. I satisfied my German mandated offensive with the Guns of August attacks.
15 2/23/2021 9:09:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Are you sure you want to attack from Brussels with the BEF? It has a loss priority and will take at least one step loss in this attack and cannot be rebuilt. It is much better to use him for his defense but if you really want to attack, then I will roll.
14 2/23/2021 6:31:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #10: 3 / French Reinforcements (10th Army)
10th Army.

Message from Allies:
1 AP2 - Play for Ops

Activate Brussels (2) - attack Liege 7 - 8 (even)
This will satisfy my MO

Activate Dubno - Move RU 3 to Tarnopol.

I have no CC cards
13 2/23/2021 4:09:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #2: 2 / Wireless Intercepts
A Flank Attack Attempt involving at least one German unit (army or corps) vs. a space containing only RU units is automatically successful.

Message from Central Powers:
1CP2: Use this for the 2 OPS
1. Timisvar: Move: AH corp moves back to Szeged
2. Tarnopol: Move: AH 3rd army moves over to Czernowitz joining the AH corp there.
You got lucky on the Guns of August attacks. I will flip the German 2nd army in Liege for my 4 loss factors on the Brussels attack.
12 2/23/2021 10:52:00 AM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 3 / Russian Reinforcements (11th Army)

6 2/20/2021 10:54:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #1: 3 / Guns of August
May only be played in the first Action Round of the August 1914 turn. The Liege fort is destroyed. Place the GE 1st and 2nd Armies in the Liege space. The GE 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Armies are activated for Combat.

War Status increased to 2

Message from Central Powers:
I have to start with the Guns of August as the opening move. Liege fort is destroyed. German 1st and 2nd armies advance into Liege and attack the BEF 10 to 5. The 3rd army in Koblenz will attack the FR 5th army in Sedan 5 to 3. I'll let you resolve because you might have the withdrawal CC card to play for one of these battles.
5 2/20/2021 10:52:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message I have the game set up with you as the Allies using the 8 card hand and the extra 20 card deck.
I also posted the tournament rules.
The mandated offensives roll gave a German and British mandated offensive for the first turn but with the tournament rules the British mandated offensive on the first turn becomes a French mandated offensive.
