982 6/8/2022 10:05:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message yes, IOG next!

Have you read the rules? Side preference? My solo'ing experiences made it clear it is a wild ride for both sides, maybe particularly scary for the CP early on, but equally scary for AP late. Preference?

I've also got to get Vassal running on my PC here. It's got memory issues and Vassal can be a bit of a hassle to install and get running, as I recall. Will try now...
981 6/8/2022 10:03:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message just to close this one out

VP-1 -> 17 (failure to advance during Peace Off)
VP-1 -> 16 (final Blockade)
that's a CP win

Good one, as you said. It's been fun to give the historical scenario some table time!
980 6/6/2022 12:13:00 AM Winter 1919 Allies Message I think that one might have been our best game yet up till turn 15 or so. I gotta work on keeping Russia alive...
