BM 23 Playoff Final Gamerman (L+4) vs Farmboy (X)


  • Fretting about how many ANZ air to send at Paulau


  • @farmboy I’m reading back into the thread. You did announce that you wanted to disregard the results so that you can proceed with the rest of the turn. And you did this before dice were rolled . In which case it is quite fair to redo if you prefer. I was just looking more at what happened and that you made the choice I would have made.


  • New neighbor came over. Now I know better where one of my property lines is and where to mow.
    So far so good - 4/4 neighbors met are great people, easy going

    Now back to the high stakes FRANZAC move
    Could have broke the whole game down on one quick assumption. But I don’t do that… :D



  • 2 ANZ planes on 1 carrier, I put it on comment log too

  • Will need scramble decision for 97
    Asking in advance so it doesn’t hold up the move…

    SS, DD, FTR, 3 BMB at 97


  • Oof, I’m tired.
    But I know I’m attacking 97 with everything, so I’ll still need that decision anyway.


  • @gamerman01 missed this last night but the answer is full scramble. German fighter would be the last casualty


  • actually, it might depend on your other moves too. If the US has any other significant moves on the europe side of the board, there is a chance I would reconsider that.


  • Right, I hadn’t even thought of that, sorry I asked early

    Couldn’t do the move in one sitting, especially after my humanity caught up with me suddenly
    On a challenging new contract this week - move tonight at the earliest


  • So I will ask you again after properly posting the combat move

  • 2024 2023 '22 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    I apologize again. This morning I realize one could ask for an advance scramble decision that could help them with their purchase and CM decisions.

    Of course I was just trying to facilitate the game and not have the big move interrupted, but now I remember there are 2 problems with that.

    Also of course, I will follow through with the attack - I would have never asked if there was a chance I wouldn’t - and I will ask you again because you haven’t seen purchase and CM

    I’m not flying over Ukraine (or Stalingrad) AA when I have another target! 🪦🤨


  • @gamerman01 all good and I’m not concerned that you asked in advance. I think it is often not going to be an issue and it can speed up the game. It just occurred to me that I should see the full move in the event I want to save that air for something else. I don’t think that is likely though and I expect to want to scramble.


  • Very close now, thanks


  • US15 97 scramble.tsvg

    Still wanna scramble to 97?


  • GAA - you went offline.
    We’re just a little out of sync this week!


  • @gamerman01 sorry for the delay. Full scramble.
