209 9/20/2021 9:55:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message I think I found the issue

I looked in the journal for each space the PZ could move through and somehow missed a SUa that went to Bryansk from Smolensk.

208 9/20/2021 9:48:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message NO worries, we both want to get it right. especially me, since I am a known screw up from time to time with a dyslexic brain.

Poltava: GE PZ can go Konotop-Bryansk-Kaluga-Vyazma ?

Orsha can move to Vitbsk
207 9/20/2021 8:31:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Sorry to drag this out, but I don't see how the panzers can get to Vyazma. I have every path blocked off.
Do we need to compare maps? List dispositions of Germans and Russians in Russia?
206 9/20/2021 12:52:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message confirmed on 2PZc, when I sent the PZc from Africa to Elim, it must have been reserve instead.
205 9/20/2021 12:51:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message Panzers in Poltava could Vyazma and Vitbsk is Axis controlled
204 9/18/2021 4:52:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message I'm not seeing an OOS warning for Smolensk this time, I rectified that previously and see no change that alters that situation. Care to explain?

Also- I show (2,0) PZc in the RB. You still have the PZc from North Africa in the eliminated box.

Btw: Thank you for emailing Tom for the clarification

188 9/15/2021 10:28:00 AM Spring 1942 Allied Message OK, Tom clarified and unfortunately you are correct, you cannot plan PZAA until there is a PZc in North Africa to remove :-(

Over to you for your 3rd action
187 9/14/2021 10:11:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message Regarding SR though, Spring Thaw doesn't disallow that. The penalties to German units in USSR only apply in Winter 42. You just can't play a card for OPs in Spring Thaw.
186 9/14/2021 10:09:00 PM Spring 1942 Allied Message I'm not sure you have to have a PZc in Africa to be removed, for that event to be played. Yet, the rules do say "must"...

I will send a message to Tom and CC you. He is pretty knowledgeable about these things.
185 9/14/2021 10:01:00 PM Spring 1942 Axis Message I don't have a PZc to remove for the play ?

I'm not sure I could even SR a PZc right now because of Spring Thaw in the USSR ?

I may redo depending if I am off on this.

Appreciate your helping teach me.

159 9/8/2021 5:18:00 PM Winter 1942 Allied Message Issue with that move - all GE units are in limited supply in the Soviet Union this turn. That means it takes 3 OPs to activate Kremenchug. Revise?

Since you played that card, I'll go ahead and crimp you for the spring
142 9/3/2021 6:09:00 PM Winter 1942 Allied Message I don't know if you're "doomed" Jeff, but you might not get TK in and in the long run, that's not good for the AX.

The AX player really needs to go all-out OPs, with no exceptions, constantly pressuring and taking some risks for at least the first 3 turns. Occasionally you may take RPs on the second turn, but even this isn't seen much in high level play as it gives the Allies an opportunity to get something in (RPs, a key event, etc).

If you're feeling disillusioned, take a look at the COMPLETED game that Tom and I played. He had me beat back on Turn 2, then we switched sides and he eventually won with my previously-defeated Allies. It's a good study on what to do with both sides in this game.
