Message from Allied:
Hardly think your conclusion ("Idiot") is appropriate!

7A4: A51: 8,12/4, 501/101, 505/82 to A50 supported by FA/4 @ 12 vs 5
121 8/20/2021 9:46:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Well, regardless of what Jeff says, my Impulse 4 move (not 5, because I'm an idiot) is this:
Activate 49. 91/1057 to 45 (St. Jores). No interdiction.
120 8/20/2021 9:39:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Send the email to Jeff. Genuinely interested in what he'll say. Is this a case of using too many dice for a roll (in which case the extra roll is discarded) or an illegal move (blowing a bridge I don't own)? If the latter, the whole thing has to be redone (or you accept the result).

Just checked the errata on the advantage on philipsmith.ca. You're right. Which means I've been playing the advantage wrong for YEARS. (grimaces).
119 8/20/2021 9:33:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Is there an errata somewhere I can check this? I genuinely thought the advantage was mine until the end of the turn, even if used.

118 8/20/2021 9:32:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Bridge rolls: you called out specific order of die rolls for specific bridges: Juno (invalid--DR of 5 is noted, but does not result in a blow or non-blow); Bayeux (DR of 5), Tilly (DR of 2), Caen (DR of 6)

If OK, I'll send an email to Jeff Lange and ask for clarification -- he may rule in your favor
117 8/20/2021 9:25:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message So far, OK. The operative roll was the one on Port-en-Bessin. When I killed that CA, I had my third kill and the Advantage was not going to be mine until the impulse was fully done. At that time you had the Advantage to use.

However, when you used the Advantage to reroll, then you no longer have it "to use", so at the end of the impulse, when all the dust is settled, I gain the impulse shift for killing more than two units.
116 8/20/2021 9:22:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message BTW -- that is why it is very rare for a player to use the advantage to reroll a result like I had -- to do so must cost you something! Nothing comes free in life or games (contrary to some of our politicians!)
115 8/20/2021 9:20:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Advantage: But I did have it. You asked me if I wanted to reroll an assault. The advantage didn't shift when you killed the Grandcamp CA, because the impulse continued with your assault into Port En Bessin.

Besides, you only killed the Omaha CA and Grandcamp CA, that's 2 of the 3 you need for a flip. I moved the infantry regiment and Flak to Isigny.
114 8/20/2021 9:18:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Advantage: it's not when you lose it that the rule states -- it is do you have it to lose? in this case, you didn't
113 8/20/2021 9:13:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Totally confused now. So it's 5, 2, 6 that's counted? Not 5, 5, 2? Because the first 5 is for a roll I can't make?
112 8/20/2021 9:12:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Umm, that's not how I read 11.2. It says that the advantage shifts at the end of the impulse "whenever used or lost by the controlling player." It's not an instant change. Once the impulse is resolved, then the change occurs. This prevents me from using the advantage earlier in an impulse, then it switching to you and being used to reroll a later die roll in the same impulse (say, to take a chance at an overrun and open up a huge gap).

The flip side is that if you're going to lose it anyway because units are eliminated, you get a chance to use the reroll regardless. The "requirements" for shifting impulses don't alter until the advantage is flipped after the impulse ends.
111 8/20/2021 9:12:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message so the third roll was a "2"
110 8/20/2021 9:10:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Activate 16 (Bretteville). Blow 16-17(juno,6+ needed), 16-20(Bayeux, 4+), 16-21 (Tilly, 4+), and 16-10(Caen, 4+), in that order.

Tilly was the third roll called -- that is the one applied
109 8/20/2021 9:07:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message When you use the advantage you no longer have it to use. So even if it goes to me at the end of the impulse, I get a shift for every German unit over two that dies
108 8/20/2021 9:03:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Okay, so the die results would be 5, 5, 2, then, and the Tilly bridge dropped but the Caen bridge is still up.
107 8/20/2021 9:02:00 PM Turn 1 German Message There's no impulse shift. I had the advantage, and you eliminated 3 units, so the advantage would shift to you at the end of the impulse. I used it on the final roll at Port En Bessin because the odds were better for survival, but there's no extra impulse added because the advantage changes hands at the end of the impulse, right?
106 8/20/2021 9:01:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message I play that rolls as called are valid. If you call for an extra roll and it was not needed, then it is just discarded. Think that is the best protocol
105 8/20/2021 8:59:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Depends on results of Move 72. I tried to blow the Gold, Juno, Tilly, and Caen bridges out of Bretteville. Results were 5, 5, 2, 6. You pointed out later that you actually hold the Juno-Bretteville bridge, so a roll for it is moot. So the 4th roll is unnecessary. So should that count as a 5, 5, 2, for the Gold, Tilly, then Caen bridges? Or should it be 5, 2, 6, and the roll for Juno bridge is ignored?

I don't know the answer or the convention with the league, that's why I ask.
104 8/20/2021 8:59:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message think we're off by an impulse. After the triple off of Omaha, the impulse marker returned to 2, but you called your next impulse 3, so think you are now doing 4
103 8/20/2021 8:56:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message think you probably already blew it, but it was unmarked as such on my map; thought I'd send the roll before I took the time to check

Message from German:
Requesting reroll of bridge repair for 50-51. You need a 5+, not 6+. +3 for free 51, +1 for contested 50, -1 flooded, -1 repair. The 6 on your second roll still stands, so the day continues no matter what.

6G7: Blowing 16 (Bretteville) bridges in this order, 16-18 (Gold, 5+ needed), 16-17 (Juno, 5+), 16-20 (Bayeux, 4+), 16-21 (Tilly, 4+), 16-15 (Verson, 4+).

There's no Ugh. That was impulse 5 not Impulse 6. It's still clear skies.

My 6G6: Activate 41 (Coutances). 752 and 30 running interdiction (rolls in that order). Both move to 37 (le Mesnil hernan) than 27 (St. Lo). First interdiction roll to move to St. Lo. More coming.
