320 2/5/2023 9:55:00 AM Turn 6 Allies Message Nice to have the extra DP. No doubt about initiative in 1941. I will spend 10 BRPs on ASW (limit of 11.7 rounded down to 11).

319 2/5/2023 9:09:00 AM Turn 6 Axis Message I looked at this again. By 35.3, involuntary BRP losses don't count toward calculating available BRPs. So your available BRPs for Britain will be 117 less SW expenditures. Your per-turn spending limit will be (117 - SW spends)/2. After those calcs are done, the 15 BRPs for loss of colonies are subtracted. ATR rules are sssooo complicated; I learn more every time I read them. So Britain gets 3 DPs in 1941 regardless of how much you spend on SW.
318 2/4/2023 11:42:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message I think I need to build more than one ASW, so I will unfortunately have to give up the DP.
317 2/4/2023 9:45:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Before I allocate DPs, I need to know how many DPs Britain will have, which is determined as follows:
British DRPs = 125 - 8 for year-end BRP deficit - 15 for lost colonies = 102. If you spend more than 2 BRPs for SW, your available BRPs will drop below 100, so Britain would have 2 DPs rather than 3 in 1941. (You lose one DP for Axis conquering Egypt.) Available BRPs are calculated before DPs are allocated. So please inform me of your 1941 SW expenditures before I proceed with calculating and allocating DPs.
316 2/4/2023 8:19:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message On to 1941 YSS. I will work up the first cut at it and will send you the logfile for you to add your input.
315 2/4/2023 8:18:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Britain also loses 5 BRPs for loss of Transjordan. So Britain BRPs at -8.
314 2/4/2023 8:16:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message SW result DR7, so damage is 5*.5*3 = 7.5, rounds up to 8 BRPs lost. 2 subs survive to 1941.

Message from Axis:
Winter 1940 SW resolution, 5 subs against 2 fleets and 1 ASW as before. Ratio 5:3, DRM +2.
312 2/4/2023 8:13:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message No intercept of seaborne SR. Assume your turn complete, and no raiders, so on to SW.
311 2/4/2023 1:01:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message British spend all 5 BRPs to build a 3-4 in Basra and a 2-3 in Britain.

USA donates 5 BRPs to Britain.


310 2/4/2023 12:59:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message No effect.

Proceeding to build and SR.

Message from Allies:
Very little ground movement. Rolling for attrition in the med.
308 2/3/2023 4:08:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message A total of 4 AF (2 for each sea supply attempt) fly from Messina to FF21 and cut the routes. 2AF result in guaranteed damage, which for unescorted sea supply means supply is cut without a die roll.
307 2/3/2023 4:01:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Totally agree a reaction roll would not be a good plan for you this turn.
306 2/3/2023 2:11:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message British select attrition in the west and med. USSR passes. No base changes. Sending air staging and sea supply.
305 2/3/2023 2:04:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message Looks like 90 ground factors on the eastern front, so reaction dice roll would be +2 DRM? If so, no point in rolling this turn.

304 2/2/2023 8:41:00 AM Turn 6 Axis Message Sent Axis winter EOT. You may now do a Russian reaction die roll if you wish.
303 2/1/2023 8:52:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message That went twice. Will use first result, no effect.

Message from Axis:
1 armor and 2 AF against 1-3 in Damascus. 6-2, 3-1.
298 2/1/2023 8:48:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Sent logfile. 1 ground attack in Syria.
297 1/31/2023 4:10:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message No interception attempts. Malta planes decline combat.

296 1/30/2023 3:30:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Correct. I may beef up the garrison further before your turn, so could change.
295 1/30/2023 2:33:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message As of now, a USSR roll would be -2 (125 BRPs and Axis minors) and +3 (over 70 German ground factors on eastern front), for a net of +1?

294 1/30/2023 2:22:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Integration of these countries into German war effort results in a -1 DRM on the Russia diplo roll table. That entitles you to make a Russian reaction diplo roll at beginning of your coming turn if you wish. Your two DPs in Russia, plus my 1 DP and Italian covert point applied earlier this year, would be applied to a reaction roll should you make it.
293 1/30/2023 2:14:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Results: Rumania DR7. Germany will take a lower result - DR4, Rumania integrated into German economy. Germany gets all BRPs coming turn.
Bulgaria DR7. Germany will take lower result - DR5, Bulgaria integrated into German economy. Germany gets all BRPs coming turn.
Hungary DR6. Germany will take lower result - DR3, Hungary integrated into German economy. Germany gets all BRPs coming turn.
Total BRPs for all 3 are 35.

Message from Axis:
Diplo rolls, in order, for Rumania, Bulgaria, Hungary. For Rumania, DRM of +2 for Axis DP doubled. For all 3, +1 DRM for Russia having entered the Baltic States. So net DRM +3, +1, +1, respectively.
291 1/30/2023 1:32:00 PM Turn 6 Allies Message No Allied DPs in those three countries.

290 1/30/2023 1:03:00 PM Turn 6 Axis Message Germany has 1 DP in Rumania, none in other 2. Allied DPs in those countries?
289 1/30/2023 11:33:00 AM Turn 6 Allies Message No Allied diplomatic calls.

288 1/30/2023 8:55:00 AM Turn 6 Axis Message On to winter 1940 diplo rolls. Germany calls on Bulgaria, Rumania, and Hungary. Any Allied calls?
287 1/30/2023 8:54:00 AM Turn 5 Axis End Turn
286 1/29/2023 11:38:00 PM Turn 5 Allies Message Nope. No fleets moving to or from SW.
285 1/29/2023 8:28:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message On to SW realignment. Any changes for Allies?
284 1/29/2023 8:27:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message Result: 5*3*.8 = 12 British BRPs lost. 2 subs survive to next year. The "surviving sub" counter on the board is incorrect - sorry. Should have been 5 last turn, now will be 7.

Message from Axis:
Fall 1940 SW resolution, DRM +2.
282 1/29/2023 8:23:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message No raiders. On to SW resolution. 5 subs against 2 fleets and 1 ASW, I assume. Ratio 5:3, +2. Will resolve next.
281 1/29/2023 8:19:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message US BRPs now: 150+10+10+10+10+10-5=195
280 1/29/2023 12:39:00 PM Turn 5 Allies Message Thanks for the reminder. The U.S. will transfer 5 BRPs to Britain this turn.

279 1/29/2023 8:12:00 AM Turn 5 Axis Message No interception. Note that with US tensions at 24, you may if you wish start transferring 5 BRPs per turn from US to Britain. Happens during SR phase, so you could do it this turn.
278 1/28/2023 11:48:00 PM Turn 5 Allies Message Actually 17 BRPs
277 1/28/2023 11:47:00 PM Turn 5 Allies Message Spending 10 BRPs to build a 4-5 in London and two 1-3s in Basra. Leaves 16 BRPs.

Also SRing two 4-5s to Basra via South Africa. Showing movement of 23 FF.

276 1/28/2023 11:40:00 PM Turn 5 Allies Message No effect

Message from Allies:
Ground movement complete. Rolling for attrition in the Med on first column.

274 1/28/2023 9:28:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message After due consideration, I decided not to intercept sea supply. Please proceed.
273 1/28/2023 3:44:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message No interception of naval base changes. I will want to see supply routes in the Med.
272 1/28/2023 1:33:00 PM Turn 5 Allies Message British select attrition in the west and med. USSR passes.

Sending some naval base changes and air staging.

271 1/27/2023 6:32:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message And you'll need to move your 1 AF on Jerusalem to Haifa or Amman before you start your turn.
270 1/27/2023 6:04:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message I forgot to move Italy's BRP slider. Should be at 36. Could you please move it at start of your turn?
269 1/27/2023 6:02:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message Sending you Axis EOT. Over to you. Please note that Suez Canal is not currently usable for naval movement or supply.
268 1/27/2023 1:37:00 PM Turn 5 Axis Message Full exchange.

262 1/27/2023 12:37:00 AM Turn 4 Allies End Turn
261 1/27/2023 12:30:00 AM Turn 4 Allies Message No interception. Enough suicide missions for 1940.

260 1/26/2023 10:45:00 AM Turn 4 Axis Message Sent Fall Part 1. Intercept sea supply?
259 1/25/2023 10:03:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message OK I'll start my turn tomorrow. Good night!
258 1/25/2023 10:02:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message No calls for me either.
257 1/25/2023 9:58:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message OK. Almost done for tonight. On to Fall 1940. Axis make no diplo calls. Any for Allies?
256 1/25/2023 9:56:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message I'll move 1FF from Southhampton to SW to replace the FF lost in battle.

255 1/25/2023 9:50:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message You need to either withdraw the damaged fleet from the SW box or reinforce it to get back to a complete 9FF.
254 1/25/2023 9:46:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message Germany continues unrestricted sub warfare. SW realignment?
253 1/25/2023 9:45:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message My bad, you are right, I was looking at wrong table. Your AF only damaged.
252 1/25/2023 9:44:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message Result: 5 subs *3*.4 = 6 British BRPs lost. 2 subs survive to next year.

Message from Axis:
SW resolution, +2 DRM
250 1/25/2023 9:42:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Yup, two ASW.

A DR7 on the air defense table is 0/1. Isn't that one damaged?

249 1/25/2023 9:42:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message I will roll for SW, with a DRM of +2, for 5:3 ratio.
248 1/25/2023 9:40:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message And on to SW resolution. 5 subs against 1 fleet and 2 ASW, I assume? The damaged fleet cannot participate.
247 1/25/2023 9:39:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message Germans won the first round of fleet combat, but will retire anyway. Each side lost a factor. The smaller raider group gets out and cuts 3 BRPs from Britain.
246 1/25/2023 9:37:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Germans lose 1/2. British lose 1/3. I will not withdraw.

245 1/25/2023 9:35:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message With 1 DF and DR7, the AF is destroyed.

Message from Allies:
Rolling for the two fleets --- 1-3 needed.

First fleet
Second fleet

237 1/25/2023 9:30:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message The 1AF in Scapa Flow will intercept the 3FF. Th1 18FF in SW will attempt to intercept the 6FF.

236 1/25/2023 8:09:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Understood. You can move the two 3-4s back to the hexes next to the partisan.

235 1/24/2023 9:27:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Finished SR and removed British losses along with 5 BRPs for Egypt. You can remove the two German air factors.
Sending file.
234 1/24/2023 8:18:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message I can set up a line behind the Suez canal, so that only your armor can attack next turn. That would slow the Axis advance.
233 1/24/2023 8:15:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Indeed. Looks the British have to reinforce Egypt via south Africa while the Axis deploys so many aircraft in Sicily. I now see the need for a double line whenever there's an Axis panzer threat.

It looks like much of the middle east will fall next turn, and that the Axis will have plenty of time and BRPs to smash the USSR.

I think I have a better grasp of the game now. Thanks again for your patience.

Maybe I should concede this game, and we can try again. Do you think the Allies can recover?



232 1/24/2023 8:02:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message Final tally 9 FF sunk, 2 AF shot down.

As you can see, had you gone with your original route, you would not have gotten through with even one ground unit. Tough to fight air power.
231 1/24/2023 7:59:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message Lucky roll for the bad guys. Fleets have 2 DF, so DR5 = 0/1, 1 AF damaged. 9 attackers so DR11 = 5/6. 17-11=6 remaining FFs. No further air interception possible, so you have just enough FFs remaining to deliver the 3-4. The 4-5 is sunk. You can complete your SR.

Next and final interception hex is Tripoli. All 10 remaining AFs attack, same roll sequence as in earlier attacks.
229 1/24/2023 3:53:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message Yes. The fleet will press on.

228 1/24/2023 8:48:00 AM Turn 4 Axis Message Results: 1 AF kia and 1 damaged. 3 press attack and achieve 1 FF sunk and 3 damaged. 17 FF available to continue mission. Do you wish to continue to next hex?

Message from Axis:
My kia AF for previous attack comes from Syracuse. Next intercept hex is FF16. Only the 5AF from EE20 are in range. Same arrangement as before - first two rolls for defensive fire - now 3DF. Then remaining two rolls for attack by undamaged AF.
226 1/23/2023 10:55:00 PM Turn 4 Allies Message I'll stay the course.
225 1/23/2023 5:24:00 PM Turn 4 Axis Message Results: 1 AF destroyed, 2 damaged. 9 undamaged AF press attack, resulting in 3 FF sunk, 4 damaged. That leaves 21 to continue the mission. Do you wish to continue to the next hex?
