117 4/6/2022 7:26:00 PM Turn 4 Russian Message Keeping game from being deleted
116 2/20/2022 4:34:00 PM Turn 4 Russian Message Knowing the results of the Air Battles I can do my NPR&T so you can finish your turn.

5-5-7 in TT17 returns to Leningrad(RR18). All other Naval units stay where they are.

Air 1(TT17) to Leningrad(RR18)

Air 3(Kiev U12) to Kursk(U21)

Air 4(Dnepropetovk M18) to Sevastopol(D13)
115 2/20/2022 3:27:00 PM Turn 4 Russian Message The 3 at Kiev is horrible for you. It was important to you Kiev be an Air Base.

The 3 in Battle 6 is not good but with you having 4 Hits before your units both die and me having 7 on the +1 column I was a favorite to win the Battle and I would have gladly taken more Hits for you taking more Hits.

You are correct as it is not a port there is a Naval Battle. Attacker has 1, defender has 5 +2 +2 so -5 column. The extra Hits; if any, go to your choice of land unit. After that either land unit will attack with the column being -5(4 or 5 vs 3 + 5 + 2).

109 2/19/2022 5:36:00 PM Turn 4 Russian Message Do you see why I didn't fly my 4 Air(Dnepropetovk M18) to Battle10(I10) to create a -1 Battle?

103 2/12/2022 7:25:00 AM Turn 4 German Message Andy, sorry for the silence all week. I was doing my moves when I had time each day, and then discovered that they were not captured in a log file. :-( so i have to start over. Apologies for this, I will try to do tonight or tomorrow.
102 2/4/2022 3:07:00 PM Turn 3 Russian End Turn
101 2/4/2022 3:07:00 PM Turn 3 Russian Message File sent.
100 2/4/2022 5:28:00 AM Turn 3 Russian Message Yes I will use this exact set up.
99 2/4/2022 5:03:00 AM Turn 3 German Message don't worry, I have a thick skin ;-)

you are proposing to use the startup you used in this game for a 3 player game where you are the Russian? I would like this, as I want to figure out with Andrew how to break your starting setup. I learned a lot in this game together, and while I am certainly not at your level, I would like to think that I am at least improving ;-).
98 2/4/2022 5:01:00 AM Turn 3 German Message apologies, I thought I had done everything and we were waiting for Andrew, will check later.
97 2/4/2022 4:38:00 AM Turn 3 Russian Message Reminder that you need to roll the two Battles in the three player game.

It should be over soon; with proper play even picking every die roll it is an A2.

I want to get your opinion on something before proposing it to Andrew. Starting the three player game with me as Russian on the June, July, or August move of the current three player game. My set up is beatable but can be frustrating whereas any of those start points will require a very different style than I am playing here. Don't want it to come off as insulting to your play and if you feel it would be no issue with just using the same set up as this game.
96 2/4/2022 1:58:00 AM Turn 3 German Message yep, realized that later! :-D I just sent the log file, your August turn. I marked the two units I think are OOS
95 2/3/2022 11:55:00 AM Turn 3 Russian Message No file was necessary. You did your move I listed my NP Air. Then is combat and I listed Battle Instructions. Then is NPR&T which I listed After that it is your PR&T and exploitation. When it only involves a few units(1 unit for NP Air and 3 units for NPR&T) I find it easier to just list then do vlogs.

91 2/2/2022 1:15:00 PM Turn 3 Russian Message Look at my moves in the three player game. Often it is a good play to convert rail with Panzers.
90 2/2/2022 1:14:00 PM Turn 3 Russian Message NPR&T

All Naval stay where located

Air 1(near UU11 if not killed) to Leningrad (RR18)

Air 4(Kiev U12) to Dnepropetovsk(M18)

Air 3(Bryansk Z18) to Orel(X21)
89 2/2/2022 1:10:00 PM Turn 3 Russian Message Battle Instructions

Air Battle 4(Hango UU11) at +1: Stay on first roll of 4. Retreat on roll of 5. Either you die, we both die, or one of us has a mandatory retreat on all other rolls

Battle 2(V11) at +6: Retreat to V12 if possible

Battle 3(T11) at +7: Retreat to T12
88 2/2/2022 1:06:00 PM Turn 3 Russian Message NP Air

Air 1(Leningrad RR18) to Battle 4(Hango UU11)
87 2/2/2022 10:48:00 AM Turn 3 German Message Andy, I forgot that in the log file I just sent, I wanted to have the Finn naval mine Hango. If I understand correctly, your naval is out of range to react, tho presumably your air could react. I would add my Finn air into the mission. in fact, now that I think of it I forgot to move all my Finn units! I will send an additional log file a bit later.

86 2/2/2022 2:34:00 AM Turn 3 Russian Message The unit that attacked Riga came from the hex it ended in but I agree only had a 1/3 chance of either surviving or giving you a Hit.
85 2/2/2022 2:33:00 AM Turn 2 Russian End Turn
84 2/2/2022 2:00:00 AM Turn 2 German Message those were nice rolls! tho not totally wasted, as you got two hits on my INF in the south, and your unit somehow escaped through the streets of Riga to the east ;-)
83 2/1/2022 1:19:00 PM Turn 2 Russian Message To you for the Mandatory Retreat and NPR&T
82 2/1/2022 1:12:00 PM Turn 2 Russian Message What a set of rolls wasted on unimportant Battles!

80 1/31/2022 5:33:00 PM Turn 2 Russian Message Missed that neither Minsk(DD11) or Dvinsk(II1) is a legal Air Base. To be a legal Air Base the city must be a source of supply not just in supply. In both cases the rail in the hex itself has not been converted. No harm but rebase to a legal location for your Aug turn.

Files sent. To you for possible response and NP Air.
79 1/31/2022 5:01:00 AM Turn 2 German Message thanks Andy, will do
78 1/31/2022 5:00:00 AM Turn 2 Russian Message You forgot to move your H Armor. Feel free to move it for initial movement as well as exploitation
77 1/31/2022 4:58:00 AM Turn 2 Russian Message NP R&T

All Naval units stay put

Air 1 VV20 to Leningrad(RR18)

Air 3(X6) to Gomel(Y14)

Air 4(Vinnitsa R8) to Kiev(U12)
76 1/31/2022 4:53:00 AM Turn 2 Russian Message Finn retreat to VV19 is not a legal direction. VV19 is not converted so not a source of supply and the full water hex at VV15 stops the line from reaching VV14. WW20 only legal retreat for ground unit.
75 1/31/2022 4:51:00 AM Turn 2 German Message ok, will do, I could not remember if the air was allowed to retreat with the ground unit.
74 1/31/2022 4:48:00 AM Turn 2 Russian Message Your pursuit in Battle 8(X6) is at +4 not +2; retreated Air does not defend rule 7.2.2.4 so remove 1 Hit from 14 Panzer

55 1/27/2022 1:47:00 PM Turn 2 Russian Message Didn't see you place your Oil Repl Pt. Add one to Finn, Ger, or Other

A trick is you can change a units move status individually; if you click "Marked Moved on a unit with a Move status it losses that status.

I can't react to the Panzer move into HH9 as it caused a Battle.

I can't react to the Panzer move to W7 as it caused a Battle.

47 1/25/2022 3:56:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I don't think my German air is allowed to support a Rum unit, so the only air that can support the Rum MECH is my Rum air, which i sent there.
46 1/25/2022 3:41:00 PM Turn 1 Russian Message No I mean I10. Your R Air can reach the Battle and given the +2 for Air vs Naval it would be a -1. Other than a 6 if you die I die. Since your German Air can reach the Battle against your R Armor you would oppose my Air if I go there. I'm willing to fight the +2 against the R Air as it kills it, a 0 Battle when you are likely to win is not normally worth doing unless the reward for success is great. Even if you fly the R Air to support the R Armor I kill both on a 2 and one or the other on anything but a 3.
45 1/25/2022 3:36:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Andy, I don't have any naval, so why would you want to send your Air 4 to I10? you mean maybe battle 6 to kill the Rum MECH?

23 1/23/2022 11:04:00 PM Turn 1 Russian Message Or, of course, do Battle rolls to you need more Instructions

No Air, No Naval

Blitz Battle 1(KK6): Retreat to KK7 if possible. No response to any possible Blitz movement.

Blitz Battle 3(Z4): Retreat to AA5 if possible. If pursued retreat to AA6 if possible. No response to any possible Blitz Movement

Blitz Battle 2(GG6): Retreat to GG7 if possible. If pursued retreat to Vilna(GG8) if possible. You can not pursue into a Major or Fortress City so if I make it I survive. No response to any possible blitz Movement.

These should allow you to do most combat rolls. I intend in every Battle but possibly Battle 7(Brest-Litovsk BB4) to retreat after the first round of combat if possible.


22 1/23/2022 6:36:00 PM Turn 1 Russian Message Reminder your turn for NPR&T and one retreat in the 3 player game.

18 1/22/2022 12:57:00 PM Turn 1 Russian Message No NP Naval

You can move the Blitz Marker but there is a 5/6 shot the defending unit in HH6 dies and Blitzing units may not initiate new combats(rule 11.7.2.4). They can enter hexes with new opponents if the initial unit they attacked retreats into that hex. They may do moves where a response creates a new Battle. Your choice.

Battle 20(Riga NN9)is a Mineweep so no odds unless I oppose it and it would be at +2 not +1(the first turn +1 to attack applies to Air and Naval as well).

Battle 17(FF6) is +4 not +5. Defender 3+1, attacker 7+1.

Battle 13(Q7) is 0 not +1. Defender 3+1, attacker 3+1.
