Hi Guys,
not to push anybody but only one game left!

Also, how would we play next rounds of Minit Tournament? Semifinal are we jump immediately into Finals?

Initially we excluded semifinals, but we are in for the pleasure of playing, so I'll say why not? At the moment, I think I can bestow upon myself the title of "Best incarnation of a WWI general", thanks to my 105 figures lost.

I'm easy with that, but we had
130 - Cambrai (St. Quientin Canal) - 21 November 1917
for the Final

if there are Semi-Finals, another scenario is needed.

Maybe 130 - Cambrai (St. Quientin Canal) - 21 November 1917 for the semi-final, and another for the final?

I propose 132 - Cambrai (Bourlon Village & Wood) - 23-25 November 1917 for the semi-final (maintaining 130 for the final).

Both 130 and 132 are huge scenarios but I am ok with them being planned for semi and final. For sure, they cannot be won by chance :)

That was also my idea (above the plain "fun" effect).

Hi there,

sorry to write so late, but I got aware of the new possible format only a few days ago.
Are you going to change the formula to make even the semifinals beyond the already scheduled final?

If so I have to kindly ask you a short postponement of the deadline date if possible.

Convinced that I was out of play I have in fact decided to give priorities this weekend to other tournaments where I’m involved (CcAncients and CcNapo).

I have already contacted Twan (my opponent) and I’m quite sure we can find soon a moment to play together.

Please only write if the intention is to play also the semifinals.

Thx and again sorry for the little delay,

Max aka Viridovilas

Hi Max, it's OK for me. Do you think you and Twan can play next week? Than we can have both semifinal and final in three-four weeks before August vacations.

Yes I think we can manage to play our battle this week.

I’ll keep all of you updated.

Thanks Gabriele,

There is not much to say: British forces bravely attacked the German lines, but were welcomed by a devastating cross-fire (read a Butt & Bayonet, two Return fire and one Surprise Ambush played in a very quick sequence). Without being able to take any terrain where to get in cover, British infantries were inevitably hit repeatedly by the German rifles and bombers.

I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
