679 2/3/2023 2:59:00 AM Turn 7 United Kingdom Message USA put a card out so Soviets to shuffle and lay out an unmasked card.
678 1/30/2023 5:28:00 PM Turn 7 United Kingdom Edit Conference / Events United Kingdom: from C London. 1 prod to med, -1 prod V1/2 to C Quebec Slim - offensive CBI

675 1/30/2023 5:20:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom End Turn
674 1/30/2023 5:20:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Have just drawn option C for the next conference.

Good questions. Regarding the Arctic, if there aren't enough naval markers no new PA/CNs can be placed. Existing ones are unaffected (last bit of 7.4).

Soviet front advance: the UK CN in Baltic States is safe for now but will be behind the front when the Soviets reach Prussia (see the example in 7.13). To save it I need to put a 2nd CN there, if I can.
673 1/28/2023 8:24:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message A few questions:

>Still 3 Naval up in the Arctic but the Germans depleted the force by 2.

What happens if Arctic falls below 3?

Does the US marker go away in Baltic States now
that front line has advanced into Ukraine?

And does this apply to Netherlands too for British?




672 1/27/2023 11:56:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Edit Provisional VPs United Kingdom: from 24 to 36
Soviet Union: from 20 to 23

Message from United Kingdom:
Pacific Map fronts (Far East not eligible for roll, Soviets need to have the appropriate issue in middle of table for this).

1. CBI to French Indo-China? Base 2 + 2 for OS so success on 1-4.

2. SW Pacific into PNG? Base 2 + 4 for OS - 2 for reserve = success on 1-4.

Central Pacific? Base 2 - 2 for reserve so 0. No roll made.
669 1/27/2023 11:33:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Italy surrenders so remove the Italian reserve.
668 1/27/2023 11:30:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message All three advance

Message from United Kingdom:
European Front rolls.

1. Western into Lowlands? Base 2 + 6 for OS - 4 for Axis reserves = 4. So 1-4 needed to advance.

2. Med. 2 + 2 - 2 = 2. 1-2 needed to enter Southern Italy.

3. Eastern into Belorussia? 2 + 22 OS - 4 reserves = 20!!! This modifies the roll by +10 so breakthrough is automatic.
666 1/27/2023 11:10:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message It goes to PNG. Note I have changed 2 US placed markers to OS which must have been the intention whenever we did this.

Message from United Kingdom:
Japan has 4 army reserves and a fleet.

2. Two to Manchuria

3. Marianas is a B29 space so one there

4. IJN roll removes a naval marker in Central Pacific if the first roll is a 1-2

5. IF roll above this as 1-2 a 1-4 then eliminates the IJN piece

6. 1 reserve marker left. Last roll sends it 1-2 Cent Pac, 3-4 SW Pac and 5-6 CBI
663 1/27/2023 11:01:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Still 3 Naval up in the Arctic but the Germans depleted the force by 2.

6. 2 to Lowlands.

7. Italians to Southern Italy.

661 1/27/2023 10:52:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message UK has the single Pol Alignment to place and it goes in Persia. Will allocate axis reserves next.
660 1/26/2023 11:43:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message I think we are on to British resolving placement of
the Pol/MIL marker he won in conference?

Then we roll and resolve the fronts?
659 1/25/2023 3:23:00 PM Turn 6 United States Message I will place my marker in Bulgaria
thus I will remove both my and USSR marker there
658 1/25/2023 12:42:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message USSR places a cn in Poland, over to the USA for their cn placement.
657 1/25/2023 7:02:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Stalin can go first
656 1/25/2023 3:58:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message USA now places 1CN or says to Soviets that they place first.
655 1/25/2023 3:58:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Clandestine Networks:

USA 1 (the default)

Soviets 1 {ditto)

UK 1 + 3 = 4 (for the 1/3 issue).

Place UK CNs in Persia, Finland, Malaya Twice (so remove a US one and place a UK).
654 1/25/2023 3:52:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message UK moves the left global issue from Self-Determination to Colonialism.

Message from United Kingdom:
Soviets won the A-Bomb issue so automatically advance the red pawn to the final box on the track. I take this as meaning they have totally effective spies in the Manhattan Project.

Then there is an unmodified roll and the blue pawn will advance to Hanford on a 4-6.
652 1/25/2023 3:48:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message A-Bomb then Global Issue then Clandestine networks.

I'll roll for the first as there is no discretion. Then I do the middle as I won that issue and kick off the third as I have the most due to winning the 1/3 Pol-Mil.
651 1/22/2023 5:46:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message I've updated the map with my production, not sure what's next.
650 1/17/2023 7:29:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Nick, how are you doing?

Been quiet on the Vassal games so I hope you are on the mend.
649 1/6/2023 5:05:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Bah, no. One has to go to Med so CBI down to 1.
648 1/6/2023 5:04:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message UK production as advertised:

2 CBI and 1 to activate the Pol-Mil Issue.

3 more markers for winning European Theatre Leadership and one for then having it so those 3 go on the W Front.
647 1/4/2023 6:41:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message I have 6 (minus 1 for V2/2 =5) production
4 go to Russian Front.

I have 1 for Pacific control
( so 2 left) - I'll put the 2 in New Guinea
646 1/4/2023 6:19:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message If I put 3 into W Front, the strength will be 8. Germans will have at least 2 reserves, so strength 4.

Average rolls will see one more reserve added (could be none could be 3).

If one, the net strength will be 2 so a 1 in 5 chance of advancing.
645 1/2/2023 9:26:00 PM Turn 6 United States Message >USA markers might therefore go into the Pacific?

do you think you have enough for Western front without
US Help here to move the marker into Lowlands?
644 1/2/2023 5:21:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Correction. Can't add. "...I will then get TWO more markers for winning European Theatre Leadership and one for then having it so those 3 will go on the W Front..."
643 1/2/2023 5:19:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Small file sent. If Soviets are putting all production to E Front, USA can go next. I have not placed them.

Bob gets 5 OS or Naval markers for the 5 Production plus 1 for Pacific Theatre. 4 markers need to go to E Front due to Soviets winning those 2 Issues.

Looking ahead, my 3 Production will turn into 2 CBI and 1 to activate the Pol-Mil Issue. I will then get 3 more markers for winning European Theatre Leadership and one for then having it so those 3 will go on the W Front for the advance from Normandy. The 2 USA markers might therefore go into the Pacific?
642 1/2/2023 5:07:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Correction Soviets +1 more so =5 for Arctic Theatre having enough ships.
641 1/2/2023 5:06:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message I think it tidies all cards up.

Production:

UK base 4 -1 V1/2 = 3

Soviets base 3 +1 Murmansk = 4

USA base 6 -1 V1/2 = 5
640 1/2/2023 7:33:00 AM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message Yes, Stalin card goes back my hand, but I don't know if the cleanup routine does that automatically.

Sorry for the delay again, whatever this is has put me back in bed again.

I'm allocating both the DOs to the Eastern Front (big surprise I'm sure), and it won't need any of your spies to figure out that I'll also be spending all my production on putting offensive support there as well.

Please put the DOs in place for me and carry on with the turn, I hope to be back with the game (and also with Corrupt Bargain) tomorrow.
639 1/2/2023 7:29:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Aftarwards - all per the turn card

Brit loses 1 marker for V1's and Stalin
gets one for generous US Murmansk convoy
Also British forced to place one marker in Med.
638 1/2/2023 7:24:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Stalin card is on top of discard pile does that need to go back to Stalin's hand?
637 1/1/2023 11:00:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Yes same. Minimal file sent out. Will look at production later. Soviets need to allocate the 2 directed offensives.
636 12/30/2022 6:56:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Nick, hope you are feeling better.
635 12/30/2022 6:56:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Hum...staff still mad about Atomic secrets.
Give tie to Britain.
634 12/29/2022 4:25:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message Stalin could be persuaded to spend one production on an offensive support marker in the Pacific Theatre, exact position to be decided by Mr Roosevelt.
633 12/29/2022 6:36:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Any reply from Stalin before deciding?
632 12/29/2022 3:24:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message The key might be who will beat you by the margin of points available from winning a conference at the end of the game?

Oh and UK gets 3VP for winning while the Soviets get 5VP.

631 12/26/2022 7:03:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message HMM.. well Churchill does have the game named after him so I could consider that... But he did steal my marker.

Poor Stalin hasn't won a conference yet so there is that also - but he keeps taking Abomb secrets....

Let's here some 'table chatter' boys - who will (or will NOT do) stuff with some of there OPS that will help the good old US of A?
630 12/26/2022 5:26:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Issues won: UK 3, Sov 3, USA 2.

Going to the 4.5 tiebreaker the USA, having not used Roosevelt in the Conference the USA decides whether Soviets of UK win this. See 4.52, USA would decide under 4.53 also if it came to that.
629 12/26/2022 5:23:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Final card this conference.

5 strength Attlee (two Ts) moves European Theatre Leadership from USA 3 to UK2.
628 12/23/2022 5:51:00 PM Turn 6 United States Message James Byrnes takes the Euro Theater card back from British 1 to American 3
627 12/23/2022 2:03:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Henry M Wilson, a 2, moves European Theatre Leadership from USA 1 to UK 2.
626 12/21/2022 5:57:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message USSR debates the US play with Alexander Novikov, he's a 3 with +1 for Nyet and -1 for Stalin's paranoia, so the US DO moves from the US-2 space to the USSR-1 space. I also get another OS on the Eastern front for playing him an a DO issue.

Back to the UK to advance an issue. USSR is now out of cards so will not be debating anything.
625 12/21/2022 9:39:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message UK does not debate Ickes.
624 12/20/2022 7:11:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Ickes is played for 2 then +2 for President still being alive/active.

I'll target the US direct offensive marker on the 2 USSR space and then move it 4 spaces to the US 2 space
623 12/19/2022 9:58:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message No debate from UK. Well rolled.

USA play is next.
622 12/18/2022 7:44:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message NO DEBATE
621 12/17/2022 5:44:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message His strength is 6, modified to 5 for Stalin's paranoia, so the US DO moves from the USA-2 space to the USSR-3 space. Any debate?

Message from Soviet Union:
USSR plays Georgi Zhukov to move the US DO from the US-2 space. His strength is given by this die roll minus 1 for Stalin's paranoia, with a minimum strength of 1.
619 12/17/2022 4:52:00 AM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message I'll make my move this evening. The inch or two of snow and subsequent week of freezing temperatures - or, rather, the inability of the locals to drive safely in the resulting road conditions - combined with the after-effects of my Covid booster jab means that I haven't been shopping for two weeks. So I'm spending my day refilling the freezer and cupboards.
618 12/17/2022 4:42:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message UK will pass and let Soviets make the next play.
617 12/15/2022 5:51:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message USSR declines to debate the US play. Now it's the UK to advance an issue or pass (since they debated my last play)
616 12/15/2022 6:44:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message >Am worried US is heading for another conference victory.

I'm worried we won't get extra Military OPS to fight the Nazi hoard....I might even have enough to send some to Eastern FRONT....Stalin baby...(wink, wink....)
615 12/14/2022 10:22:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message No debate from UK. Am worried US is heading for another conference victory.
614 12/14/2022 6:50:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message In attempt to get extra OPS having control of both theaters I will use Cordell Hull to move the Euro
marker from British 4 to USA 1
613 12/13/2022 2:17:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Beaverbrook [3] debates and moves Global from Sov 1 to UK 2.
612 12/13/2022 2:12:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message UK will debate as whatever I do can't be Nyeted.
611 12/13/2022 5:58:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message NONE for me and glad you are feeling better
610 12/12/2022 4:33:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message USSR does not debate the UK play so the Pol-Mil 1/3 has been captured and is no longer in playnfor this conference.

USSR plays Vyacheslav Molotov to move the Global issue, he's a 5 with -1 for Stalin's paranoia and +1 for the Global issue, so it moves from the UK-4 space to the USSR-1 space.

Any debate?
609 12/11/2022 8:02:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Soviets to debate or take turn?
608 12/8/2022 8:54:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message no debate
607 12/8/2022 8:03:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Cuningham [2] moves Pol-Mil 1/3 from UK 5 to UK 7, the chair.
606 12/5/2022 4:52:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message USSR does not debate the USA play either so it's back to the UK to advance an issue.
605 12/5/2022 2:50:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message No debate from the UK. Do the Soviets?
604 12/4/2022 8:18:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Frances Perkins with +1 bonus
Move US production marker to US 5
603 12/3/2022 5:31:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Not from UK so it is USA's card play.
602 12/3/2022 6:36:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message NO Debate
601 12/2/2022 4:51:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message No debate from the USSR either.

I'll play Nikolay Voronov, a 3 reduced to a 2 by Stalin's paranoia, and move the other US DO from the centre of the table to the USSR-2 space. I also get an offensive support marker in Belorussia from Voronov's attribute.

Any debate?
600 12/2/2022 6:50:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message NO US debate

598 11/26/2022 12:12:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message No debate from the USSR either, so now it's the UK to advance an issue.
597 11/25/2022 11:11:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Again, no debate from UK.
596 11/25/2022 6:25:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message US plays Averell Harriman - special feature - +1 if on Soviet or British Track -
So 5 points on the US directed offensive to move marker
from USSR 3 to US 2
595 11/24/2022 5:30:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message No debate from UK.
594 11/24/2022 6:27:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message no debate from USA
593 11/23/2022 8:00:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message I'll play Alexander Vasilevsky, a 4 modified to 3 by Stalin's paranoia, and move one of the US DOs to the USSR-3 space. I also place an offensive support on the Far Eastern Front.

Any debate?
592 11/20/2022 9:57:00 PM Turn 6 United States Message no debate from Franklin
591 11/20/2022 1:26:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message USSR does not debate the UK play.

Message from United Kingdom:
UK plays John Anderson, a 4. He moves Global Issue from middle to UK 4.

If this roll is a 1 he additionally generates 2 OS markers.
589 11/18/2022 1:23:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message No debate from USSR either so it's the UK to advance an issue.

Sorry, I had remembered it as being the previous conference when he had (another) heart attack.
588 11/18/2022 10:32:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Churchill will not debate Knox play.

That was step 512.
587 11/18/2022 10:30:00 AM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Churchill had a heart attack at step 5123 in Conf 5 hence his being inactive.
586 11/16/2022 7:39:00 PM Turn 6 United States Message Play Frank Knox
US production to 5 level and I gain 2 Naval Markers for later use
585 11/16/2022 7:22:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message Paranoia strikes and all my staff cards are reduced in strength by 1, but not to less than 1 before bonuses, for the rest of the conference. Oh well...but at least it's a guaranteed 3VP.

Round to Bob for his play. Also, shouldn't Churchill be Active again now?

Message from Soviet Union:
I'll discard Pavel Zhigarev, a 1, to play Stalin and move the A-Bomb issue from the centre of the table to Stalin's chair. Thanks to Stalin's attribute there is no debate possible. If the dice roll is 2-4 then Stalin is paranoid this turn.
583 11/16/2022 7:11:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message >Strat. Material and A-Bomb markers

Played: Global Issue and A-Bomb Research

Mistake or partially listen and partially still trying to keep colonialism alive?
582 11/15/2022 12:23:00 PM Turn 6 United Kingdom Message Final 2 issues. Half listening, Churchill selects Global Issue and A-Bomb Research.

[Have had computer issues: cracks on 17 inch touch screen laptop have made it useless as the cracks take the cursor to the bit pressed in the most. Today after a slow slow day the desktop needed some disk repair. Hope it is OK but while Vassal and the modules remain, they are not loaded into Vassal for some reason. These things come along in threes don't they?]
581 11/14/2022 7:12:00 AM Turn 6 United States Message Well, with no lobbying or Big 3 guidance I'll pick
2 'safe' US production markers.

Strat. Material and A-Bomb markers still left that might
help British/US standing. - just saying...
580 11/13/2022 2:50:00 PM Turn 6 Soviet Union Message USSR picks the other US DO and the Pol-Mil 1/3 issues.
