206 9/17/2021 1:49:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message We'll see what you got. How to do that is in the Read Me text on the map file. I think you did it before but I've forgotten.

We'll zot the defenders of Cherbourg on top odds +1. Adv. the two Brits
205 9/17/2021 12:16:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message The SS is willing to leave its barracks this time.
204 9/17/2021 12:13:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Had Overlord last turn, but alas no early invasion allowed.

Let's see if this game gets any more interesting.

Message from Allies:
Card not drawn, by card number high to low
202 9/17/2021 12:10:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Nope. Drew one too many.

I only drew 4 and kept 5.

I'll randomly determine one card and put it on the map masked. I'll then take that as my first draw next turn.
201 9/17/2021 11:19:00 AM Turn 4 Axis Message Panzers to the front.
200 9/17/2021 11:17:00 AM Turn 4 Axis Message You drew one less card for V1, correct?
199 9/17/2021 11:07:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Change game turn Game turn changed to Turn 4
198 9/17/2021 11:06:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message I didn't see that coming but I'm glad these two cards won't be coming back. Make sure you play them as the event or they won't be removed from the draw deck.

I rather like my hand so will 1 Op again.

Move: A-P -- cleaning up the peninsula

Tac Air: same as always
Strat Air: reduce your hand size by 2 and one carpet bombing

Airbases moved

Don't advance the turn on the game file. I did it and all the draw cards got put into the discard pile. So I undid it.
197 9/17/2021 10:43:00 AM Turn 2 Axis Message Panther Brigades for Events + OPs

Rebuilt PZc lets me fulfill Disaster in the East Requirements

SR to Anzio for a truly international effort. What could go wrong?

Two GEc are reconstituted, and a GE Army is brought to full strength in France
186 9/17/2021 9:34:00 AM Turn 2 Axis Message Doesn't matter with that roll. Eliminate GEc, flip PZc to void retreat

Message from Axis:
That's fine. I think the error is likely on 1:1 rather then the 3:1

184 9/17/2021 6:57:00 AM Turn 2 Allies Message The Canucks arrive and we cycle through some of the ammo building up in the ports in Italy

vs. Taranto 2-1 -terrain ++TacAir for 3-1 +1 Patton

I'm assuming were playing that a 3 roll is 1/2 result or I'll hold out an air to attack at 2-1, that being better. You'd think they'd proofread this stuff.
183 9/16/2021 8:53:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message RDing.

Trains criss-cross Europe.
182 9/16/2021 7:11:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message I'm just gaining a VP

I just looked at the events diagram and didn't see Disarmament so figured you hadn't played it. Turns out for some reason it's not one of the included events on the display.
181 9/16/2021 6:31:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message They were disarmed last turn when they surrendered. It was my next card play.
180 9/16/2021 6:07:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message The GE army unit can't move south of the Arno river until you disarm the Italians.
179 9/16/2021 5:38:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Shuffling troops around, hoping the FJ can can stare down the French
178 9/15/2021 3:38:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message Event

We employ the French so we can have shit on a shingle.
177 9/15/2021 3:38:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Wrong game!
176 9/15/2021 3:38:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Flip Schmettow, everything else advances
175 9/15/2021 3:30:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message The first V1 kills nearly half a dozen sheep.
174 9/15/2021 3:22:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message Tac air 2 to GS 2 to Interdiction

Strat air to one each except bombing industry since that seems pointless. You hand size reduced by one.

Had to redo the advance turn marker since if you move it manually it doesn't add the '44 cards to the deck.

Even if you push the button it still doesn't add the cards. Text says you drew a card but no card is in your hand. Turns out you have to click the Create Decks button.

All should be good now.

173 9/15/2021 3:12:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Over to you for Strategic Warfare

171 9/15/2021 3:04:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message 3 Ops.

2 moves

Monty and Patton eliminate the speed bump at 7-1 and advance. Brit corps takes any hit.
170 9/15/2021 2:48:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Done. I believe I've knocked out my moves legally. Back to you.
169 9/14/2021 5:42:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message I'll tweak it tonight
168 9/14/2021 5:38:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message You can. I was thinking about full supply.

If you stay in Taranto you will be in limited supply for what remains of your life as non POWs.
167 9/14/2021 5:14:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message 11.43 Makes it appear I can trace through a second port to a supply source.
166 9/14/2021 4:17:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message You may want to rethink that move.

Units in a port would have to trace directly to a supply source to be in supply. No German supply sources are ports so the Germans in Taranto will be OoS at the end of the turn if I move out of Salerno (though not dead since in this game attrition is checked at the end of your R6).
165 9/14/2021 3:38:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Germans shore up some lines
164 9/10/2021 8:01:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message Oh crap. Did not even pay attention to noticing that. There goes a couple of turns of planning.
163 9/10/2021 6:13:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message You can't cancel the retreat in Salerno, no terrain there.

I advance all 3 units and Italians crap their pants and surrender.
162 9/10/2021 6:05:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message German troops keep moving south.
161 9/10/2021 6:04:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message No terrain there to allow cancelling retreat.
160 9/10/2021 6:03:00 PM Turn 2 Axis Message 0/2. Eliminate ITc and flip ITa to void retreat

Message from Axis:
I'm aware of the garrisons between Yugoslavia, Albania, and Greece, I'm just surprised that the game didn't require a German unit to be transferred.

4:1

139 9/9/2021 3:53:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Flip a Brit and elim the flipped Brit.

There were lots of Italian units in the Balkans. They started the war down there, the bastards.

4 Ops.

Just same attack again.

Regardless of result the hit Yanks will flip back to full per event.
138 9/9/2021 3:23:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message Against all odds, per 13.1, Italians can serve in the Balkan Front Box.

I use (1) OP to move the ITc Trieste to the Balkans to satisfy the Event
137 9/9/2021 3:19:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message 2/2. I eliminate ITc.

118 9/3/2021 12:31:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message Joe Biden without a look back at Kabul while it burns.

I was way to laissez faire with corps considering how hard it can be to rebuild them.
117 9/3/2021 11:18:00 AM Turn 4 Allies Message No real point in finishing the turn if you're going Joe Biden on me.

I have no idea if I'm in a good or bad position. Italy looks easily stalemateable.

Smart ally will always discard to zero beginning on first '44 turn to maximize chance for Overlord.

Like all games that go to the end of the war an Axis victory is probably holding one or two hexes.

Set 'em up if you want to restart.

I drew three invasions this turn though one is unplayable and other one sucks.
116 9/3/2021 10:13:00 AM Turn 4 Axis Message First games with you - always - are learning games. It's just how quickly do I get smoked before I at least start to warm up.
