It's been awhile since I posted, but this game is still continuing, so I thought I'd catch up. I just sent him turn 24, so next turn will be the blizzard. But more on that later.
Someone has asked me for screenies of the supply situation for armies. Below I've pasted this info for turn 19 and 20:
TURN 19 PHASE 1:
TURN 19 PHASE 2:
As you can see, lots of zeroes, although I'm not sure what is normal.
TURN 20 PHASE 1:
TURN 20 PHASE 2:
I'll let someone smarter than me figure out if this is normal, but I will say that in the supply line on the production screen, I am short by almost quarter (I need 28 have only 23), which seems odd given the small size of my army. I'll get a screen next turn, forgot to do so.
Zonso really kept attacking right through Turn 24, none of this retreat to Poland stuff for him. Here are a few screen shots from Turns 22 & 23:
Voronezh--here is a failed encirclement attempt, or maybe was just trying to get me to pull back a bit. I did pull back a few hexes.
South--my strength continues to grow (from zero) in this area, at the top is a pocket I managed to open.
Moscow--he continued to attack here, getting right to the gates of Moscow.
Center--here is the center, with another opened pocket.
South--more of the same:
Crimea--held most of it:
I didn't bother getting new screenies for Turn 24, not much changed. He launched a bunch of attacks all along the front for the last few turns, but didn't try any penetrations or encirclements.
His front line looks to be pretty disordered, and I hope to be able to wreak a little havoc during the blizzard, although my army is weak (only about 4 million), so there will be a limit as to what I can do. I guess it depends on him as well, if he starts pulling back or intends to hold what he's got.
Main main goals are still under consideration, welcome any thoughts. I'll also post production, OOB, and casualty screens from the beginning of Turn 25 for anyone who cares about such things.
