174 8/19/2021 4:08:00 PM September 1914 Allies Message Yeah, too bad ;-)
You have Falkenhayn in your hand, you should read the Moltke event that is in the Allied mobilization deck to understand why it's an important card.
173 8/19/2021 1:57:00 PM September 1914 Central Powers Message Ah, i was hoping this card would not come before next turn… I see you’re thinning your deck at light speed.

171 8/19/2021 4:05:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message Appreciate the hint on this. There is no better way to “get” a game than to play it.
170 8/19/2021 3:57:00 AM September 1914 Allies Message Just as an aside: there is a strong deck management element to PoG. You want to play this kind of 2 ops CC's, both for the immediate effect, but even more so to eliminate them out of the deck. Even 3 ops events are to be played if possible. The average ops of the cards becomes higher with each war phase, and you want to end with as much as possible 4 and 5 ops cards in your deck, meaning more rp's and more possibilities to move and combat on the map.


169 8/19/2021 3:44:00 AM September 1914 Central Powers Message I was lucky there but you had a good card to support... Yes, I'll take back Budapest (I believe I can with both attacking units based on 12.7.). File is up.

case of Austria-Hungary), no RPs may be spent for that nation.

140 8/16/2021 3:32:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Those CDG games don't give themselves easily... The investment in rules only pays off through multiple plays. Sounds like a good plan.
139 8/16/2021 3:27:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Yes, seems logical; it will be a very wild game from now on with a high do or die factor; can be fun, but it's not typical for the average PoG game, so we should definetely try again after having finished this one.

Message from Central Powers:
Hard to understand what is the most crucial... You know what... I'm here to learn... I'll let you get me out of supply... If we get to a game over situation, it is what it is. At least, it's more consistent with what I've played so far... Like mutual destruction.
137 8/16/2021 3:20:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Yes, is a problem; as said, you can't spend all ops in the west. It's possibly fatal, since you have to either play the last card as ops, getting no rp's, so the German offensive peters out, or play it for rp's and accept that the austrian front collapses. Maybe we should start again if you'd like; we're just learning. Playing on is okay for me too.
