535 6/11/2022 11:15:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Monthly message to keep game active. Hope everyone is doing well.
534 5/11/2022 5:02:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Glad to see you are both well just busy. I'll keep this game active for ease of communication and hopefully we can start a new one in fall. Have a great summer.
533 5/11/2022 4:32:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message Hello Andy and Andrew,
I am so so sorry that I have not been in communication. life became extremely busy taking care of family and running my company. I would love to start playing again in the fall when the weather starts to get bad again. I am really sorry guys, you both definitely won our game, I learned a lot playing with you!!! Russian Front really holds up after so many plays and so many years!!!
532 5/11/2022 3:30:00 PM Turn 6 Southern German Message Hi everyone.
I'm afraid I'm not able to play a new game at this time.
Probably only in September. I really would like to play a game in three with Andy playing the Russian so we can see how to avoid his great German tactics. 😉
Best
Andrew
531 5/11/2022 1:52:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Hello, anyone still here?
530 4/23/2022 2:34:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Hope everything is OK
529 3/23/2022 9:37:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Placed my NG EOT file on Dropbox

To Andrew for his R&T, removal of OOS, and exploitation
528 3/19/2022 3:22:00 AM Turn 6 Russian Message guys, I FINALLY uploaded my NPR&T, hopefully I have it right. we can wrap up this game, and see how far you guys got into A2 range. :-)
527 3/15/2022 12:53:00 PM Turn 6 Southern German Message Hi Steve,

No worry, Keep safe!

Andrew
526 3/15/2022 9:11:00 AM Turn 6 Russian Message Andy and Andrew,

I'm really really sorry guys, I will try to wrap up my turn. Lots going on here. Lots of refugees arriving, and we are hosting a person from Kiev. Life has gotten so busy, but I will try to make steps forward on our game.
525 3/13/2022 9:38:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Hoping everyone is OK
524 3/6/2022 12:27:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message If you post your retreat and NPR&T here Andrew or I can add them to our EOT files.
523 3/6/2022 3:24:00 AM Turn 6 Russian Message hello both,
apologies again for my absence. life is very busy. i have time now to finish our game, but lost the dropbox link! Andrew, could you send again?
522 2/28/2022 5:04:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Steve you have two things to do. First since Battle 5 ended in a mandatory retreat for you the retreat hex must be picked. Second you have 3 Naval units in the Black Sea and an Air at Moscow for NPR&T. Then it will be up to the German players t5o finish their turn.
521 2/28/2022 3:37:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message hey guys,

whups, it is now my turn, I will try to do tomorrow.

Steve
520 2/26/2022 12:52:00 PM Turn 6 Southern German Message Over to Steve.

Then it's our air transfer, then exploitation that will be interesting.

All axis units are in supply.

Message from Southern German:
Sorry guys, I didn't realise it was my turn.

Battle #5 @ 0
517 2/25/2022 10:14:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Andrew to you to either retreat from Battle 5 or roll it.

516 2/23/2022 3:07:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message then we can do my final turn, and I will try to have some fun with my shock armies and new airplanes :-)
515 2/23/2022 3:05:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message hello guys,

Andrew, that was a bloody air battle in the south! mutual destruction! ok, I will carry on in battle 5
514 2/22/2022 7:39:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Just for fun I did the German move that happens if the weather was allowed to be Fair in November. It shows just how powerful that could be. If you both agree I'll put it in the Dropbox.
513 2/22/2022 7:20:00 PM Turn 6 Southern German Message Oh yes. Congratulations for your business!
512 2/22/2022 12:59:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Oh. Congratulations on your growing business!
511 2/22/2022 12:58:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Steve

Do you retreat from Battle 5(R21) and if so where?

As the result of Battle 5 should not effect anything your NPR&T

Then it will be the German NR&T, OOS status, and exploitation.
510 2/22/2022 2:19:00 AM Turn 6 Russian Message hello guys, sorry for my slow play in the last 3 weeks. besides being on a short vacation with my younger son, my company is very busy (I have to hire 10 people) which is a good "problem" to have but also slows down my play. Apologies for this. I will do my moves tonight after karate and we can aim to finish the November turn and see how far into "A2" territory you guys were able to push. :-).
509 2/21/2022 1:48:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message In these Battles it did not matter but the order of combat is Air Battles, Naval Battles, Blitz Battles, then normal ground Battles. It can be important in different situations that the order be followed.
508 2/21/2022 1:45:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Corrections

Battle 6(Moscow EE25) was at 0 not +2: remove Hit on Russian 6 Air

Battle 5(R21) second roll when the German Air can not take both Hits the extra Hit goes to the ground unit(7.3.4). Add Hit to 49 Mtn.
507 2/20/2022 10:28:00 PM Turn 6 Southern German Message Over to Steve for decision to continue battle #5.

495 2/19/2022 5:56:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message that's the only move I see available to me, you can go ahead and roll the battles
494 2/19/2022 5:56:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message guys, I will send my Rostov air (the only thing I can move) to battle #5
493 2/19/2022 2:40:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message No the next step is you doing NP Air; if any, with the Russian Air at Rostov. Then combat.

Andrew there is only one NG combat, the Air Base attack on Moscow. Please roll it when you do all the other combats. Thanks.
492 2/19/2022 2:13:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message Hello guys,

FINALLY I have gotten through your log files. All looks ok to me. So I think combat is the next step? Sorry again for the delay, really just life overwhelmed my time, and I just had a great time with my younger son in Rome.
491 2/16/2022 10:44:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Are you really up? Roughly 4 AM your time.
490 2/11/2022 5:04:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message R Cav spent 8 MP not 6(moved 3 hexes at 2 per and repaired two rails). Should be in K18 or J17 not J18.

Battle 5(R21) is +4 not +5. Attacker 5 +4 = 9; defender 3 + 1 +1 =5.

Battle 2(P20) also +4 not +5. Same math.

Air Battle 6(Moscow EE25) is 0.

It is up to Steve to do NP Air with Air 1(Rostov H23) before you do combat
489 2/11/2022 10:49:00 AM Turn 6 Southern German Message I've uploaded my move with the correct weather movement and combat preparation.

Can you please check that it's all ok?

Thanks

Andrew
488 2/10/2022 8:16:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Using the die roll range in the rule extreme weather comes in two forms and is measured over the two month period Oct-Nov 1941. The first form of extreme weather is it being Fair in the Center for both Oct and November. The chances are 1/12(roll of 1,2, or 3 in Oct followed by 1 in Nov so 1/2 times 1/6). The second form of extreme weather is it being Mud in the Center for Oct followed by Mud or Snow in in the Center for Nov. The chances are 1/12(roll of 6 in Oct followed by 4,5, or 6 in Nov so 1/6 times 1/2). Since these are both rare events that can be very game decisive I prefer skill rather than weather rolls be a greater factor.
487 2/10/2022 8:07:00 PM Turn 6 Southern German Message I will redo my move because I see quite a few errors.

First though I need to understand the weather rule better.

"***3) Both of the 1/12 chances for extreme weather in October/November 41 are disallowed. On a roll of 1,2, or 3 in October a roll of 1 In November is re-rolled until a number other than 1 shows up. On a roll of 6 in October a 4 in November is a 1, a 5 in November is a 2, and a 6 in November is a 3***".

My understanding of this rule is slightly different:
- only one roll [6 faces] on the central map would be 1/6 not 1/12.
- Extreme weather: I assumed extreme weather to mean the extreme part of the weather chart the 1 and 6 (for the central board).

Fair in October is 40% of probability, defining it extreme is odd; of all types of weather for October, it's actually the most probable!

Perhaps we need to define better what is Extreme weather.

What is extreme weather for you?

Thanks.


486 2/10/2022 8:03:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Found 43 Inf. It is under 20 Inf in Z19. As you will see if you look at the end of 089 vlog it should be in Orel.
485 2/10/2022 7:59:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message The way my Air instructions were written 2 Air attacks the Russian Air in Moscow. Air 8 would fly to either Battle 2 or Battle 3 thus freeing the Air you sent there to go support another Battle.
484 2/10/2022 7:26:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message I don't see 43 Inf(Orel X21) on your map at the start of your vlog. It is in Orel at the end of my 089 vlog
483 2/10/2022 7:18:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message Reminder Andrew I gave you 2 Inf(GG14). You can rail it South rather than move Southern units internally.
482 2/10/2022 7:16:00 PM Turn 6 Northern German Message From our agreed upon rules.

3) Both of the 1/12 chances for extreme weather in October/November 41 are disallowed. On a roll of 1,2, or 3 in October a roll of 1 In November is re-rolled until a number other than 1 shows up. On a roll of 6 in October a 4 in November is a 1, a 5 in November is a 2, and a 6 in November is a 3.

This is why I rerolled the weather after Steve rolled a 1.
481 2/10/2022 7:08:00 PM Turn 6 Southern German Message I've uploaded my move and combat preparation.

Can you please all check it's all ok?

Thanks

Andrew

Strategy notes: SG gave you 2 Inf(GG14), both rail, and you can use the Repl Pts as you see fit. If you attack any hex within range of the Rus Air at Moscow 2 Air at Smolensk will base attack the Moscow Air and 8 Air at Smolensk will support any attack of yours within range that you pick.
479 2/9/2022 9:55:00 PM Turn 5 Northern German End Turn
478 2/8/2022 2:05:00 PM Turn 5 Northern German Message 14 Pz(U24) and 56 Pz(Voronezh T24) are OOS. All others seem OK.
477 2/8/2022 1:52:00 PM Turn 5 Northern German Message If the Soviet player has no partisan factors
available or chooses not to use any, this
step is skipped.

Rule 12.2 first line. You need to use Partisan factors to roll on the table.
476 2/8/2022 12:40:00 PM Turn 5 Northern German Message Andrew. If you desire will use 2 Repl Pts and one rail and send you 2 Inf(GG14). I plan no attacks just making certain nothing I have can be taken by the Russian so both my Air are available to support your plans offensively. Thoughts?
475 2/8/2022 12:33:00 PM Turn 5 Northern German Message Weather roll was 3, Wet in Center and South, Mud in North.



Partisan roll of 5 + 1 for 1 partisan = -2 rail. German and Finn rails connect and allow transit so Axis have 2 rail moves.

Message from Northern German:
Our House rules prohibit both the 1/12 chances of extreme weather so this is the new weather roll as per those rules.
473 2/8/2022 4:12:00 AM Turn 5 Russian Message file uploaded, you guys have good weather for the final turn, enjoy! :-). I didn't mark OOS, so you need to check this first.

455 1/26/2022 11:49:00 AM Turn 5 Southern German Message Yes, Andy I think we should make an A2. Next turn I will take Dnepr and Kursk. Maybe even Stalino.

Steve, in our next game it will be fun to see how Andy will defend against our combined efforts!

452 1/25/2022 12:01:00 PM Turn 4 Northern German Message No problem.

Two corrections. Russian units in Odessa(J10) are OOS.

There should be a City Control Marker with the label Voronezh by the other Repl Pt Markers

If we get an A2 we don't need to refit.
451 1/25/2022 10:58:00 AM Turn 4 Southern German Message Sorry Andy, I read the Acts page *after* doing my move.

I should have checked but I have had a "challenging" couple of days.

Andrew
450 1/24/2022 3:27:00 PM Turn 4 Northern German Message File on Dropbox

To Andrew for R&T, removal of OOS status on his units, and exploitation. My 6-4-6 at Tikhvin intends to refit next turn so if you don't have a better use for the unit moving one Panzer to a city to refit next turn is a thought. It is legal to refit the R or H armor.
449 1/24/2022 12:40:00 PM Turn 4 Russian Message ok, I finally see that I didn't declare my retreat. I will retreat to X22

446 1/24/2022 1:58:00 AM Turn 4 Russian Message ok finally doing non-phasing transfer
445 1/22/2022 8:13:00 PM Turn 4 Northern German Message Forgot to answer earlier. Yes Kharkov would be a legal Air Base.

Strategy. In general you don't want to base Air at a location where a ground attack can trap your Air in that hex assuming you have better options.
444 1/22/2022 9:23:00 AM Turn 4 Southern German Message I've uploaded file 080.

non-phasing Transfer.
443 1/21/2022 12:06:00 PM Turn 4 Northern German Message To reply to two comments Andrew made in 079 vlog. First you had another choice at Kursk. Attack with 14th Panzer. Your comment about Odessa falling if he doesn't stop you from Mining it is incorrect. He can try to remove the Mine which would occur before he died OOS.
442 1/21/2022 11:18:00 AM Turn 4 Southern German Message Steve's turn with Non-phasing transfer
441 1/21/2022 9:06:00 AM Turn 4 Russian Message Andrew, I will retreat from the last battle and not add my ship to counter the Odessa mining :-)
440 1/21/2022 8:01:00 AM Turn 4 Southern German Message Hi Steve you have the option of retreating from battle 11 or stay and cause more damage to my Arm.
You haven't assigned any ships to my Odessa mining so I'm not sure if you wish to do a naval battle or not. If you don't intervene then Odessa automatically will fall (next turn).
