WE HAVE HAD A SUBSTITUTION!!

In the interest of letting as many folks play as possible, Doug has stepped aside to let Treb on in!

All, please welcome him.

B_C:  What they said.  As I said in the in-brief, in some ways, it's a lot easier to do than describe...

WHAT?!? How am I supposed to unhorse the mighty panzerde now? ??? ? No great Lannes death scene....  :tickedoff:


I know! I've even been practicing!

Us Prussi... err.... Austrians are have a great time discussing how to defeat the cheese eating surrender monkeys.

Hope the Frogs can stop drinking wine long enough to even show up...

Actually being on the same side as Barth for once is surreal.  :o

I for one would decline any Frenchie's hearty meal of cassoulet or boudin-noir and insist on McDonald's instead. Also, that les Belges are much smarter than any Frenchie could ever hope to be. :)

Connard, canard, what's the difference, eh? ;)

Doesn't mean I'm not still out to get you..... ;)

Lol'd hard at that!  :notworthy:

(For new members who aren't in a position to get the joke, in our first AAR against each other I was playing Stalin against Barbarossa and I named my thread "REALLY OUT TO GET ME" based on Stalin's quip that it's only paranoia if they aren't really out to get you. Also Stalin's paranoia was a factor of the game engine, Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa. Afterward we played a game of Twilight Struggle, me with the Soviets again, so "Really Out To Get Me, Too". For our DC:Blitz campaign, since I played the Nazis I called my side "Now I'm Out To Get Him".)

Dagnabbit, if I'd known there were Daleks in this I would've signed up!

It may be late before I can get the general plan out, but I'm caught up on discussions now.

Those of you keeping track on our sister-campaign run will have seen this already, but here's Panzerde's umpire board ready to go!

Operational orders sent (with a quick followup when I realized I had accidentally erased a part of someone's orders.)

1am here.  :P

The operational title should be kept secret just in case.  >:D
