HI,
I Would like to start a new game for Triumph.....
I am currenly playing this but sinds this is a big big scenario the turns take a while to come back
but that's alright.
So I want to start a new one to kill the time in between.

I wil play the German&SS side because I want to try some things I play tested on my own and to see if this realy can work and gif Germany a good chance to win the game.
Now I need at least 1 player for the Allied side and one for Russia and If some one wants the rest of the axis side that is ok for me but I want proper info/communication between us.

Sounds good. Please count me in.
As I play Axis in two games, that hopefully will continue (or at least really start running), I like to play Western Allies in this new game.

Until I figure out what's wrong with my system/game I cannot commit to play any game. I would like to play but I cannot until I solve my problem with passwords not working.

Sorry to hear that ernie
So we wait for another player(s) or we can play like the following

GB:.................Rufus
US:.................Rufus
France:.............Rufus
Commonwealth:.......Rufus
Germany:............DRommel
SS:.................DRommel
Italy:..............DRommel
Axis minors:........DRommel
Finland:............DRommel
Russia:.............Hatemf90
Spain:..............Hatemf90

Hatem only Russia maters here.
Spain and Turkey I think they almost never get into the war and for Norway that is also a minor possibility

Hey all, I wouldn't mind getting in on the action if you can use another. I'd prefer not to play Germany or Russia since this would be my first time playing the scenario, but other than that, I'm happy playing whatever needs played.

Hey Navekaoy,
this would mean you want to play the US or the axis minors
So if Hatemf90 plays the Russians and Rufus agrees, you can play the US.
Or if Rufus wants to play all of the Allies than you could play the Minors.

Sounds good - either one is fine by me, so if Rufus wants to chime in with his preference, we can get this thing cooking.

Im not sure im up to taking the ussr, its also my first game in a long time and not used to the scenario at all, it would be too easy for you :) il take any less critical nations on axis or allied side.

Welcome to the new players (and the returning players!).

If anyone has any questions, I am happy to provide advice. As DRommel suggests, following basic historical lines works pretty well.

PM me any question (plus your email if possible) and I will try to help.

Good luck to all.

Still have room for me.

Password problem is solved so I can play...if you don't mind a break in August while I go see the eclipse. Will not be near to computers as mine is a desktop and I don't have a laptop--even if there was wi-fi where I am going...

If the USA is free...I'll play them.

@ Larry: Played the first turn of Western Allies (GB, FRrnce, Commonwealth). USA is still available and you can jump in at turn 2.

@ hatemf90: No matter whether you are familiar with this scenario or not. First time will be hard for SU anyway. Even a player who has already played SU in the Triumph scenario wont be able to stop Axis from breaking through the front at many places, Sovjets suffering heavy losses, no other option as retreat makes sense or leave some units in position to try to slow down the Axis advance and see these units being wipped out completely. Thats normal. Even after first winter, that usually stops the German advance you will have to fight hard in the second summer trying not to be driven back too much. You will have enough time to prepare where and when SU might stand and fight and hopefully in the third year of war stabilize the frontline. Then tide will turn and Axis will have to fight hard and will sooneror later be forced to retreat. It just happens at the first game, where I am playing Axis. Now at turn 41 I have to retreat anywhere at the eastern front.

I agree with what RufusTFirefly says. It is a beating to start out with no matter who plays the Soviet Union (or Russia as called in game).

I'll be waiting for the Dropbox invite. Eager to try the USA.
Already playing Russia in first game....Russia is tough to play. Especially since some units come in as HUGE (900 Infantry in one unit) IF I remember the first turn correctly. You have to create smaller units which cost PP. Gave up on divisions and just made corp sized units.

It is easy to create too many units and get into a major supply problem.

Hey DRommel, did you take your turn as Germany? When I open the save from Dropbox it opens up a Germany's turn. I already PM'd Rufus to see if the right file got uploaded but I figured I'd put it here too in case he doesn't see it.

Know the USA does not get a turn in Turn 1 -- waiting with "patience" for turn 2.

Ok, we had a little problem with me joining dropbox but its all done and I have the turn, my last warning though: I will be kind of busy the next coming months with some exams (hopefully my last), so i can only promise a turn every 2 or 3 days (when the USSR arrives), since the map is huge, and the OOB is the biggest Ive ever played, so if this really is ok with you il have turn done by tomorrow, if not let me know.

Hello guys,

this game was set up like the others before: Password protection is ON, but PBEM protection is OFF. So you can open a turn only with password, but save anytime inbetween and reopen without password. As there are many units to move this will help do play the turns in smaller steps. E.g. when I played Germany I sometimes played the eastern front on one day and the western front the other day. Sometimes even took a third day to organize production settings and send replacements at the end of the turn.

So there is no need to wait til there is time for as long evening to play a whole turn.
