I hated to give up another VP for that Stand Fast but it was typing up two armies of mine plus leaving me naked in the middle. Good drive on your part. This is likely it for me today.

Movement:

Villach - Move the GE 14th to Verona joining the (19th) there.

Kishinev - Move the 6thSS PZ to Yassi, Galatz, back to Yassi, and back to Kishinev. Gamey but it gets my MO done and places those guys at Bucharest in Limited Supply...small consolation since I donít have the troops to cut them off completely.

Thanks for your opinion on my last move. It doesnít fix anything but it makes me feel better anyway :)

Place the GE 14th in Warsaw with the (4PZA)

I looked over the board and rules and I am assuming Milano does not count as a place a German Reinf can go. That your take? It says home country and I assumed they were separating Germany and Italy as far as troop placement.

As I understand it the two invasion armies coming in through Naples arrive at half strength. You condur?

Iím glad weíre getting to this part of the game. My set up starts with GE army at Vienna. I was hesitant to move it when I did expecting I would need it in Italy later and I was right. I can see several things Iíd now do different than I did. Like placing a reinforcement at Munich if Iíve move out the one at Vienna. That can react French west coast or Italy when invaded. Iím seeing a number of little things that I might find better than my original play.

I looked at your Facebook page this morning and saw you in your magician costuming. Pretty cool looking!

Message from Axis:
11AX1 - 3 OPS

The card I should have played earlier in the game before you played FDR. I didnít realize I couldnít play it after you played FDR and thus lost out on a VP. I now have that written on the card for posterity!

Activate 3 spaces for movement:

Kishinev - GE 7th moves to Cherkassi joining the GE PZ corps there.

Kharkov - Violate the Hitler Order and lose 1VP.
Move the GE 2nd to Bryansk joining the GE corps and (corps) there.

Move the GE 7th to Poltava joining the Ge Inf corps there. The Inf corps will move to Konotop.

Kursk - Violated the Hitler Order for movement.
GE 11th moves to Konotop also.

Thereís two of the 3 points you need this turn and then you will likely take Kharkov back so you will be on track for the victory. Not sure if what I did was the best in the long run or not but you have too many spaces that can attack one space where I was. Like I said, if I had known the game a little better I would have held back or rearranged the turn before all the Stand Fast started because of that one card that causes it.

10AX1 3OPS

Movement
Activate Kursk and Cherkassi:
Cherkassi -= Move the IT 8th to Uman joining the GE (7th)
Move the GE corps to Kremenchug joining the GE 3PZA

Kursk - Move the GE 1PZA to Vyazma joining the GE corps.
That removes the Stand Fast marker from Kursk and drops the VP from 13 to 12.

The Stand Fast removal is the way I read 8.4, Marc. Only 1 point per space regardless of number of units moved. If you disagree let me know and weíll come to agreement. Again, those Hitler Orders are killing me. Not being at all up on this phase of the game I likely should have taken a VP loss earlier and repositioned troops instead of waiting this long. If we played again I would handle my eastward advance a bit differently as I could see my troops starting to be set too thinly.
