651 10/21/2021 9:26:00 AM Fall 1917 Allies Message Thanks for the game! Seems fitting that it should end with a string of perfect dice rolls for the AP ;)

Targeting Baghdad with Brusilov did indeed work beyond expectation. I was hoping that it would open up another ops drain in the long term, but because the perfect combat roll allowed a 2-step advance to Kirkuk it then also set up the threat of automatic victory.

It's a bit unsatisfying if a "mismap" contributed to the end, but I think the second RP play may have been the best move anyway. I think I had about a 7 in 9 shot at automatic victory, but had that failed then with all GE armies on the board you would at least have had some chance to finally generate some momentum.

I'd say I outdiced and outdrew you... At the start some lucky combat rolls put me a bit ahead right away, and it's always easier to stay ahead than to have to catch up. You seemed to have some rotten draws, e.g. Bulgaria at bottom of LW deck, both GE armies at the bottom of first TW draw, and clumps of CCs. On the other hand my cards were mostly distributed nicely so that I could comfortably play two events per turn, while generating distractions in the Carpathians, Balkans and NE. In the end, I think the Germans only made a single attack on Russian units in the entire game!

I'm definitely curious about your views on the game. Some particular points:

* When did you decide to postpone LW? Was it a reaction to the initial AP luck on the western front, in order to secure Brussels?

* When I moved 3 RU armies to Stanislau in turn 4 it was mostly intended as a distraction, to give the Italians some breathing room. But then your rubbish hand the next turn turned it into a great attacking move. With hindsight, the Austrians might have coped better if you had passed up RP in turn 5 and instead hit Stanislau with Wireless Intercepts + Flamethrowers to peg back the Russians while trimming your deck. Instead the following good sequence of combat rolls allowed the Russians to cut through the Carpathians and keep you hopping with threats to Budapest.

* When you played AoI in turn 7, you wrote "I hate using this card this way but I can't risk Allenby showing up and going crazy on me." How would you normally aim to use it? Cycle it a few times before playing as event, or don't play as event at all?

* When I played MEF in turn 9 you said you were surprised. Was that because I played it at all, or because I sent it to MEF1 rather than MEF4? I guess I had some fantasies of using the Italians to establish supply for the MEF from Greece, which were quickly shattered when you sent a second GE army south. I hadn't really foreseen that, but once you did it I was worried I'd made a strategic blunder; once I committed some BRc to the MEF I didn't manage to spare any (along with CNDc) for Salonika like I had intended. But in the mountains the defenders are always in with a chance, and your never-ending sequence of poor attack rolls turned the Balkans into a very nice ops sink.
650 10/20/2021 9:59:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message Decisive play was the Brusilov action - broke open the NE.
649 10/20/2021 9:56:00 PM Fall 1917 Central Powers Message Unless our count is off, I believe that's your win, Johannes. Nicely done! We can debrief if you like, but my initial sense is you outplayed me and outdiced me. ;)

It hadn't occurred to me before to target Baghdad with a BRusilov offensive, but this seems to one of those games where everything just falls into place. Choosing the wrong combat to apply Air Superiority to feels like one of few instances where the dice didn't support my decisions.

May only be played if Russian Capitulation marker is in the "Fall of Tsar Allowed" box. Add 1 VP plus an additional 2 VP if RO is still neutral. Activation for combat of spaces containing RU units costs an extra OPS per RU unit beyond the first, regardless of whether these units participate in combat. RU corps may no longer move (can still SR) between the To Caucasus Box and the Near East.

556 9/26/2021 12:24:00 PM Summer 1917 Allies Message I find it's an easy one to forget... Away from map, but I think the AH army can amuse itself with trying to kill a GRc on 2A?
555 9/26/2021 11:59:00 AM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message You're right, sorry about, leave the AH army out. That will make it a 9A vs 5A attack.
554 9/26/2021 2:18:00 AM Summer 1917 Allies Message I think the specified attack on Salonika violates rule 12.1.11.1 (I don't think you can get more than 15 CF involved in the attack, so attacking on 9A at best).

Allied player must SRs at least one and up to 3 BR/FR Corps (from Allied ports on the map and/or Reserve) only to Salonika (ANA, AUS, CND, or PT do not qualify as BR for this purpose). This counts as a SR action (see 9.3.3). May be played after Greek Entry provided Salonika is Allied controlled and subject to stacking limits.

War Status increased to 16

Message from Allies:
If the French are to cowardly to go over the top in the West, maybe they can contibute in the Balkans at least.
