289 8/2/2023 3:40:00 PM Turn 7 German Message ah ok, then i will not fight in Constanta, and try to recover next turn. so you can sweep the minefield
288 8/2/2023 3:34:00 PM Turn 7 Russian Message No the Battle will be at +6 not +1 as my Air 14 will support my fleet as written on the note on the unit. Battle 4(J8) will go from +5 to +2.
287 8/2/2023 3:30:00 PM Turn 7 German Message ok, i will fight it out with my 3-3-7 fleet at +1, and hope to cause damage to your fleet.
286 8/2/2023 2:44:00 PM Turn 7 Russian Message You can abandon the Black Sea in Winter to fight elsewhere in which case you fight the Naval Battle to protect the ground unit.

Advantages: Extra Air for the rest of the board in Winter. Can rebuild 3-3-7 in Baltic to help Helsinki.

Disadvantages: Costly in RP. Lack of Naval units in the Black Sea will require you use your 5-1-2 to take any port on the Black Sea. No coastal supply in Black Sea until you retake Constanta.

You can send a German Air in your turn to fight for the Mine at Constanta. In this case you do not fight the Naval Battle.

Advantages: No need to rebuild units. Holds Constanta unless I get lucky.

Disadvantages: You use 1 German Air here all Winter leaving you with only 2 for the rest of Russia.
285 8/2/2023 2:15:00 PM Turn 7 German Message Thanks for the note Andy, I don't have an air in range for Constanta, else I would send. What do you have in mind for my possibilities there?
284 8/1/2023 7:16:00 PM Turn 7 Russian Message It is my turn so Constanta would be +1 not -1 but if you look at Note on Air in Battle 4(J8) if you oppose me at Constanta the Air flies there so the Battle will be +6 if the defender is the 3-3-7 or +7 if the defender is the 1-1-7. There are reasons to do this choice but want to make sure you understand the choice before I roll.

Yes Finland will be a weakness in the future but it won't fall quickly unless you make a mistake, prioritize other sections of the front, or I get fortunate in a few Battles. Just Helsinki with a Mine, a 4-4-4, and the German fleet requires I take everything else in Finland and Mine from say Hango to Tallinn to put Helsinki OOS or successfully remove the Mine at Helsinki and keep you from replacing it.
283 8/1/2023 5:22:00 PM Turn 7 German Message NP instructions:

In Detroit airport, looking at the map after a 2 week break. What a mess, you are much better at this game than I am! Well done. My orders are:

Both fleets in Constanta contest the minelaying at -1. (battle 5)

Air Fleets 4 and 2 move to battle 2 to support

that's all i can do, at the moment. finland will fall unless I extract my units somehow in the north on my turn. Soviet victory may come quite soon unless I am able to turn the situation around somehow.

269 7/10/2023 4:08:00 AM Turn 7 Russian Message If you give the Oil and Baltic to Finns they get 8 Repl Pts every 3 months so bad but nowhere near 1 year bad.

262 7/7/2023 3:35:00 AM Turn 7 German Message thanks! tho in the end I will probably not use the rail at this time, you have your PARA unit up there
261 7/6/2023 5:10:00 PM Turn 7 Russian Message Yes you are net -2 on Other Repl Pts


Feel free to use the Finn Repl Pt and rail.
260 7/6/2023 6:33:00 AM Turn 7 German Message I wanted to use my one Finn replacement point and my Finn rail, but forgot. would you be willing to allow me to do so? if not fully understand, as those turn phases have passed.
259 7/6/2023 6:32:00 AM Turn 7 German Message ah ok, got it. so I have to buy this Rum air unit, for 4 points presumably. I only have 2 Repl. points, so I lose presumably 2 future additional Repl. points from "other allies"
258 7/4/2023 5:27:00 PM Turn 7 Russian Message You did the German Air withdrawl perfectly.

The Romanian Air was not available to be removed as it was in the Replacement Pool not on map and there is no other unit with the same factors so you are required to buy it from the Replacement Pool to remove it. Note how I specified Other Repl Pts not German Repl Pts.
257 7/4/2023 2:52:00 PM Turn 7 German Message still confused, I have withdrawn the exact correct unit, with 2 hits on it. therefore, I don't have to apply 13.3.2.2.1.2. 13.3.2.2.2 states that I should get 1 point, as a defence factor of 3 minus the 2 hits. lets clarify. i can still do my moves, and we can sort this point out
256 7/4/2023 1:14:00 AM Turn 7 German Message ah, got it backwards. have been reading that rule wrong since. the 1980's, apparently.
255 7/3/2023 5:48:00 PM Turn 7 Russian Message One rules issue

13.3.2.2.1.2: If there is no other unit with
exactly the same factors on the mapboard, enough replacement factors must be subtracted from excess replacement factors and/or from the next Replacement
Step's or Steps' replacement factors until enough have been subtracted that they could have been used to rebuild the unit as a reinforcement unit

You have -2 Saved Other Repl Pts not +2 as you need to buy the removed Air. Basically if the withdrawl or removal has a picture of the unit you need to put the unit there.

243 6/22/2023 2:18:00 PM Turn 6 Russian Message Think the simplest would be to do the Blitz Battle now. The reason Blitz Battles are rolled first is so blitzing Panzers can remove retreat routes/deep exploit before retreats from other battles block the ability and those are not applicable here.
242 6/22/2023 5:43:00 AM Turn 6 German Message crap!!! I forgot I have to do blitz combat first!!!!
before I do anything else, I want your feedback. do you want me to shift all the die rolls so that the first one goes with the blitz battle #1? I think I would be able to unravel this with a bit of work, will wait for your thoughts. my bad

219 2/15/2023 5:36:00 AM Turn 5 German Message ah I see, I should not have left my ARM in a salient like that. Well... up to you! I get a +2 for defending my airbases, right? so there is a chance you have airplanes shot down, which could be costly to replace, no? So my hope would be to cost you at least the same amount as I lose, and I have to save up for 2 turns just to buy a new shiny ARM unit back (which would suck but so it goes). up to you. you need to decide which option gives you the most fun.
218 2/15/2023 2:07:00 AM Turn 5 Russian Message There would be no Air Battle in the Panzer hex. I use three Air Units to Base attack the three Air Units you have in range and the fourth Air Unit to make the battle +3 with no retreat. Expected cost of each Base Attack is 4 Repl Pts to me , 1 Repl Pt to you so net lose of 9 here but the Panzer is worth 16.
217 2/15/2023 1:51:00 AM Turn 5 German Message so... think you can kill my panzer, eh? that would hurt. It would certainly be the most aggressive move, and we would both lose a lot. I would try to protect it best I can with air, so you would have to win the air battle, no? The winter offensive option could do more, in that ?i have a -1 across the board on all units for potentially several months. I am way behind the "timetable" at the moment, due to your (as usual) excellent play and my bad play (big chunks of units OOS due to bad positioning, etc). so you can go tactical to kill my ARM or strategic to a big offensive, your shiny shock armies appear soon...
216 2/15/2023 1:32:00 AM Turn 5 Russian Message I have three reasonable choices

Aggressive North. I kill the Panzer and rebuild the Mine but lose a bunch of Repl Pts

Passive but protect Odessa. Smaller cost, smaller reward

Passive. Build up for a Winter Offensive

Your choice which you think will be more fun.
