106 9/1/2021 3:15:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Methinks you're jumping the gun. It's a long slog for the Allies to get 21VP in 10 turns. Defenders are pretty tough. Gotta play it through to know.

D-Day was in the spring.

2 Ops and Event

vs. Falaise - 1-1 - +++ carpet bombing for 4-1

Sadly, no Shore Bombardment

AB takes hits, everyone who can will advance.
105 9/1/2021 3:06:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message You clutching Shore Bombardment as well now?
104 9/1/2021 2:57:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Consolidating forces
103 9/1/2021 2:54:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Similar to a T3 versus a T7 Parvus to Berlin in BGG.
102 9/1/2021 2:50:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message This is my issue with this game, along with Shifting Sands. You're a turn early with Overlord. It creates massive swings in the game.

Not gonna lie, this game is going to go in the same category as its older brother. Solid Meh because of a few cards swinging it.
101 9/1/2021 2:46:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message A late Overlord in this game would seem to shaft the Allies.

We, however, are right on time.
100 9/1/2021 11:35:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message Attempting to hold the line in Italy and keep my fingers crossed you didn't pull Overlord
99 8/31/2021 1:47:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Did my air. Drew my hand. To you for Round 1
98 8/31/2021 1:09:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message I flip and eliminate garrison. Back to you for SACs

Message from Axis:
Bah, I mis-looked when I drew. Cost myself a card.

Combat @ 4:1
96 8/31/2021 12:26:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Yes. But I committed two planes to carpet bombing this turn.
95 8/31/2021 12:08:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Haven't you already used the SAC for the 3R? It can only be used once per turn.
94 8/31/2021 11:16:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message Event +Ops
AA: Pescara - 2-1 -terrain +++Carpet Bombing 4-1 / +1 -1

M: Naples

92 8/31/2021 7:01:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message Event. We bomb.
91 8/30/2021 5:14:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Fixed.
90 8/30/2021 3:45:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message My Strat bomber is reducing all your RP actions by 1 so you spent 1 too many
89 8/30/2021 3:28:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message (4) RPs
2 Armies flipped
3 Corps flipped
1 Reduced Corps created
88 8/30/2021 3:10:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message RPs
3 = 6x corps flipped
87 8/30/2021 3:01:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Back to you. I RDed.
86 8/30/2021 3:01:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message I'll elim the flipped corps.

Wasn't thrilled about getting this card. Played it mainly to get rid of it perm. like.
85 8/30/2021 2:58:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Holy crap. Your hand is nuts.

83 8/30/2021 2:55:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message You're attacking an Urban/Industrial, so 1L. Rolling as I know that's not going to stop you.
82 8/30/2021 2:49:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Event + 2 Ops

M: Naples - 7th Army moves via Anzio

A: Rome - 1-1 - +++carpet bombing +mech +1Arty -1 88s so 5-1 straight up currently
81 8/30/2021 2:43:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message That's a hard pass on that advance
80 8/30/2021 2:37:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message I flip the two corps and retreat to Naples. You could advance.
79 8/30/2021 2:26:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Loaded. Losses not reflected.
78 8/30/2021 2:23:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Got no file

Message from Axis:
2:1 Unmodified
75 8/30/2021 11:52:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message Von Vietinghoff for 2:1

Attacking only was PZc unmodified
74 8/27/2021 2:48:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Adolf still demands an attack, just a different one: vs Termoli

And shouldn't you have an 88 CC card on the board?
73 8/27/2021 2:35:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message I hadn't redone the losses. I've fixed and resent my Card Play 2. Back to you.
72 8/26/2021 12:49:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Why is the Luftwaffe unit in Cassino at full. Didn't you have to take 4 losses to stay?
71 8/26/2021 12:48:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Event:

Adolf demands an attack on Naples.
70 8/26/2021 12:15:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message You have to retreat or take another step loss.
69 8/26/2021 12:13:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message I flip the US Corps of course
68 8/26/2021 12:12:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Italian Disarmament for Event + OPs. Shuffled.

This game feels very 'N44.
67 8/26/2021 12:04:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message Scratch the flip everyone. Eliminate GEc, flip Garrison
66 8/26/2021 11:51:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message I flip everything, you have 1 LF.

Playing 88 for -1.

5:1
64 8/26/2021 10:48:00 AM Turn 3 Allies Message Ike was in my starting hand.

AA: Attacking Cassino - 3-1 : -terrain +mech ++ tac air = 5-1 +1 cc

2x M
63 8/26/2021 9:42:00 AM Turn 3 Axis Message Strife.

Hopefully you're not clutching Ike
62 8/25/2021 5:35:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Planes placed.
61 8/25/2021 5:03:00 PM Turn 3 Axis Message SAC placement?
60 8/25/2021 3:56:00 PM Turn 3 Allies Message Discards are shuffled in on turn 3 -- 6.71 so file should be okay.
59 8/25/2021 3:42:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Change game turn Game turn changed to Turn 3
58 8/25/2021 3:41:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message I think it did that because Turn 3 is 1944
57 8/25/2021 3:36:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message Can you redo your files? It shuffled the decks.
56 8/25/2021 3:29:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Forgot to move ABs.

Added "B" file with that.
55 8/25/2021 3:26:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message 2 Ops for moves

No attrition

Air chosen. You to draw and play.

I'm keeping my 2 held cards.
54 8/25/2021 3:03:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message Event: SSpz and GEpz to OKW
53 8/25/2021 2:45:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Event: Add Strat. Bomber wing
52 8/25/2021 2:30:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message RPs. GEpz to Salzburg, and flipping everything holding the line in Italy
51 8/24/2021 5:31:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Event for a VP.

Your Cross of Iron card should be left out as you get to keep using it I think.
50 8/24/2021 5:29:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message Yes. Right now I'm valuing the GEpz over the VP.

My hand is someone limiting my options as well.
49 8/24/2021 5:26:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Did you mean to ignore the Balkan disaster and eat another VP?
48 8/24/2021 5:22:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message Shuffling units around.
47 8/24/2021 12:11:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Event and 3 ops, all movement
46 8/24/2021 11:16:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message GEpz retreats to Termoli. Back to you
45 8/24/2021 10:51:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message All the Italians go away at end of my last turn since I have 8 hexes in Italy/Sicily.

That change your move any?

Also you have my Avalanche units in Naples. They should be in Salerno
44 8/24/2021 10:26:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message Ah, but it falls into the same problem, in my opinion, as Berlin to Barbarossa. It's scripted enough that if you don't have the cards it can by a little swingy when there are single cards that a lot is dependent on.

To me, I'm willing to have to use a few RPs if I can make you waste OPs on the first turn. No where else for you to really use them
43 8/24/2021 9:55:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message I got no file for your last play.

Italians surrendering seems not to be a bad thing for the krauts. Allows play of some good cards.

I think Sicily should be defended just by the Italians since they're all going away anyway.
42 8/24/2021 9:08:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message Just realized it is round, not turn, that the Italians Surrender as well.
41 8/24/2021 9:07:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message ITa, ITc and GEpz move to Taranto.

Badly misplayed Italy. I'm thinking the best strategy may be to just outright abandon Sicily, fall back to CC, and just eat up OPs out the gate?


40 8/24/2021 9:05:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message Another 1 OP
39 8/24/2021 9:02:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message 0/2. Eliminate ITa. Retreat (GEfj) to Cassino

28 8/23/2021 11:35:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message I see now why your cards always end up in middle of the map. I've just been dragging mine to the map instead of playing them the right way.

Played the current card the right way so it should be perm. removed.

None of my previous ones except Husky are perm. removed so all should be okay.
27 8/23/2021 11:33:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message All advance of course.

3 Ops as event

Messina v C-C - same attack at 4-1

A: vs. Messina. 2-1 -terrain +Mech ++ air = 4-1

22 8/23/2021 9:31:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message Bah, played for RPs. Should've abandoned most of Sicily out the gate.
21 8/20/2021 5:37:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message Scratch that. Looking at tweaking
20 8/20/2021 5:23:00 PM Turn 1 Axis Message RPs to reinforce armies in Northern Italy and rebuild the Panzers

18 8/20/2021 2:43:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message I flipped a Brit.

2 Ops to auto kill the GE PZ in Enna on 7-1 column, using 2 air. Brit Corps takes any hit

Message from Axis:
Enna
3:1


14 8/20/2021 12:00:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message vs Enna 2-1, -terrain ++air for 3-1

Naval Bombardment looked good but now I see it's only for BH. So no DRs for me. I have no CC to play

Don't see the TEC chart anywhere. I'm assuming all terrain is 1L shift
13 8/20/2021 11:58:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message We should just assume it's wrong. It makes not sense for the CRT to be linear except for this one case. The 2/2 result should be for 2-1 and the 2/1 for 3-1

I'm attacking Enna and moving N.Africa and the Husky BH
12 8/20/2021 11:29:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message Are you going to wait for a response in BGG before continuing? Judging from recent posts, this game has pretty low traffic on the page.
11 8/20/2021 9:30:00 AM Turn 1 Axis Message 4 events...


And a mystery card that's none of your business.
10 8/20/2021 6:14:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Gonna look if there's some errata but the CRT seems to have a mistake in that a 3 at 2-1 is a worse result than at 1-1.

Played Bletchley so you have to reveal some cards. Instructions on how are in the Read Me menu in the game.
