273 12/2/2022 12:32:00 PM Turn 11 Muslim Message Well, more marching than ravaging, time to get into position for some combat I think. File up.
272 12/2/2022 12:20:00 PM Turn 11 Christian Message Feels like we're boxers probing at the start of a round.

270 12/1/2022 2:15:00 PM Turn 11 Christian Message Yeah, I do wonder if Yusuf and Sir are worth it.

Move 1 is up
269 12/1/2022 11:26:00 AM Turn 11 Muslim Message OKm muster, CTA and Plan are uploaded. While it's tempting to hold back and gain the 1 VP and 1 Jihad a turn (although now you are able to shed those jihad with the King hanging out in Toledo), I decided the name of the game is Almovarid, so may as well get them on the map. But that brings logistics and other headaches, and they seem to take some time to get rolling, I guess another reason to bring them now. I think I forgot to bring in the cylinder for your leader as a result of them showing up, will need to put that on the calendar 2 boxes out I think.

265 11/30/2022 10:06:00 AM Turn 10 Muslim Message File up with my end turn and event draw for the new turn.

Well, I am not certain the USA team is favored to go too far, but at least they advance and they have yet to lose. Good defense, they just need to get the offense going and to finish near the goal.
264 11/29/2022 5:27:00 PM Turn 10 Christian Message Growth and Wastage done and posted.

Don't think the US will be long term successful scoring 0.67 GPG on average.
263 11/29/2022 4:32:00 PM Turn 10 Muslim Message Simple tax and to you for wastage.

File up.
258 11/27/2022 5:56:00 PM Turn 10 Muslim Message No, I'll do the same, drop loot and feed (or lack thereof) will slide his service left.
257 11/27/2022 5:48:00 PM Turn 10 Christian Message I'm going to stop and feed, but before that happens:

Al-Mutamid would have to abandon the loot, as you cannot avoid battle laden. And he would also be marked as moved (as he will also be if he fights).

Let me know if that changes things.
256 11/27/2022 3:41:00 PM Turn 10 Muslim Message I avoided, back to you to determine if you want to press on, although perhaps with the Fortress you have to stop? Will read up on that, but either way you can close the card out.
255 11/27/2022 1:47:00 PM Turn 10 Muslim Message Hmm, tough call, I will ponder this for a bit.
254 11/27/2022 1:15:00 PM Turn 10 Christian Message I decided to push action. You have options
253 11/27/2022 12:57:00 PM Turn 10 Muslim Message I don't understand football too much, but I think there's a lot of emotion momentum that can come into play.

252 11/27/2022 12:05:00 PM Turn 10 Christian Message Nice backdoor on Talavera

File up.

I keep wondering how teams can play so great one match and look like absolute crap against, on paper, an inferior team.
251 11/27/2022 6:52:00 AM Turn 10 Muslim Message Yes, not a huge impact in VP I guess. Another long range ravage, file up.
250 11/26/2022 6:00:00 PM Turn 10 Christian Message Less impressive result than I had hoped. Pretty much like Mexico today.

File up.
249 11/26/2022 5:26:00 PM Turn 10 Muslim Message Well, that was fast. Will let you resolve the sack.

240 11/26/2022 10:16:00 AM Turn 10 Christian Message Got it.

Fanez is storming. You have missiles (1) but are crossbows, so you get to choose the target for that.

Storm can go up to 4 rounds.
239 11/26/2022 5:53:00 AM Turn 10 Muslim Message File up. I responded to the question in my file. I think I had it correct. I had no need to feed him, as he never moved/fought. One prov was expended to use a cap. He paid with a loot to move his service.
238 11/25/2022 7:26:00 PM Turn 10 Christian Message File up with a question on your last move. Mine doesn't change regardless.

Got in four good games today, but the curmudgeon in me didn't want to drive home in rain/total darkness, so I called it after 5.5 hours of gaming.

235 11/25/2022 3:01:00 PM Turn 10 Muslim Message Enjoy your game, face to face gaming is the best. I really only play Command and Colors Ancients with local friends on Wednesdays if I am able, otherwise play some games with my 11 year old son and others with my wife, although she doesn't like the in your face competitive games...
234 11/25/2022 12:10:00 PM Turn 10 Christian Message Card 2 up.

I'm off to a day of gaming. Dune Imperium with both expansions is on the top of the play list.
233 11/25/2022 11:30:00 AM Turn 10 Muslim Message Card 1 up. I plan to watch the game, on at 6:05 PM here. England is certainly the obvious favorite, but you never know, lots of upsets!

File 026 (Plan and card 1) are posted.
230 11/25/2022 7:50:00 AM Turn 9 Muslim Message CTA and plan is complete, file is uploaded.
229 11/24/2022 9:23:00 AM Turn 9 Christian Message Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

About to do some cooking (smoking) and then off to dinner, so I'm likely occupied most of the day.

I have no call to arms. You may. No file.

I did Arts of War. I don't have Pay/Disband, but you may, so I did not do my muster.

And I stand by my previous statement on the WC.

222 11/22/2022 4:56:00 AM Turn 9 Muslim Message Did my wastage, advanced the turn and made my two draws.
221 11/22/2022 4:46:00 AM Turn 9 Muslim Message I read rule 4.9.4 as stating that if you have more than 1 of any asset OR card you are subject to wastage.
220 11/21/2022 6:18:00 PM Turn 9 Christian Message Yeah, I've been catching bits and pieces of the WC. No clue who is really good. I expect the usual suspects, but who knows.

Wastage posted. Interesting issue. Please let me know if you agree with my assessment.
219 11/21/2022 4:13:00 PM Turn 9 Muslim Message Final card played. TO you for wastage. I'll do mine tomorrow after, getting late here and watching the World Cup Wales v USA...
218 11/21/2022 11:18:00 AM Turn 9 Christian Message I remember my early plays of Nevsky and we would not have any forces left. When we played a longer scenario, we were worried more about survival than accomplishing anything. We slowly learned.

Last C file of the turn is up.
217 11/21/2022 11:03:00 AM Turn 9 Muslim Message File up. Yes, with the shorter scenarios I think we tend to be a little more aggressive and especially the two turn ones, you don't worry so much about where you end up on the second turn. These longer ones you have to be much more deliberate.
216 11/21/2022 10:38:00 AM Turn 9 Christian Message C6 posted. Interesting positional game we are playing right now.
215 11/21/2022 5:25:00 AM Turn 9 Muslim Message Yes, it's hard to be a ravager with the neighborhood watch on patrol!

Concur, I have no idea what to do, but then, to me, that is part of the appeal.
202 11/18/2022 11:18:00 AM Turn 2 Muslim Message I have no idea what is best but brining in Rodrigo just to see how that will play out. Seems like the fun thing to do. This game is so deep and open ended, not certain what the strategy is, but you have to play it to find out I guess.
201 11/17/2022 2:47:00 PM Turn 2 Christian Message For Count - got it. Concur with your muster as all good.

For Rodrigo - concur with your assessment. I cannot do a) at this time as Rodrigo is not green and on the map. He is green, but not on the map. You could Call to Arms a) because green Rodrigo is ready.
200 11/17/2022 2:21:00 PM Turn 2 Muslim Message For Rodrigo, it states that to reconcile he must be green and on the map, and p4 clarifies on map is at a locale. To employ him, he has to be yellow?
199 11/17/2022 2:17:00 PM Turn 2 Muslim Message The way I read the playbook notes for the Count card, the Muslim tips say see the Christian tips, which state the lord pays for the units for no actions?
198 11/17/2022 11:37:00 AM Turn 2 Christian Message So, it's not clear if Al Mundir using the capability of Count of Barcelona to muster is also his lordship for the turn. (Which would impact Alrama)

For Rodrigo, I think I could spend a VP to convert him to yellow (case A), but I shan't. So, you now have a Call to Arms Option.
197 11/17/2022 9:41:00 AM Turn 2 Muslim Message Had to wrap my head around this large scenario and all the things I could do and the limited things I can do. One step at a time I guess. I stopped at the call to arms phase, not certain you have a call to arms option, as Call for Crusade will happen if I invite the Almoravids and you go first so I think CTA for the Crusade would be the following turn. For Rodrigo, he is not yet on the map or in disband, and no perm removed Christian Lords now. Anyhow, take a look/check of my muster, and please confirm I am good to move to Muslim CTA.

193 11/15/2022 10:58:00 AM Turn 2 Christian Message OK, let's dunk this one and set up something different. How about E? You choose sides.
192 11/15/2022 10:36:00 AM Turn 2 Muslim Message C6 is up. Yes, this one looks too imbalanced. I can just keep ravaging one are a card pretty much, which is about the most you can do as well.

178 11/8/2022 12:12:00 PM Turn 2 Christian Message I realize this is probably lost for me, but I still want to play it out.

Yesterday was a lost day as Sunday was 31 hours long and all travel. Recovering from lag, as well as getting the household and bills back in order.

Trip was fantastic. Got to visit some sites that really have me pumped for the future Zizka game.
