378 8/5/2017 8:56:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message My pleasure. It was an honor
377 8/3/2017 11:46:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message And thank you, Michael, for being willing to join in and to help me out in a very frustrating situation. I hope you at least found that seeing this one through to the end deepened your understanding of this remarkably fine game, for which opposing players are always available on-line.

376 8/3/2017 8:27:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I think its time to call this one a game. Thanks for thinking of me.
375 8/2/2017 6:35:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message The British would then have to retreat. Because there is no friendly fortification at Upper Monongahela, all of the British drilled troops must be eliminated.

The successful defense of the Ohio Forks results in a +1 VP for the French. That takes the French total to +5 VPs. You could conceivably use your remaining 1 Ops card to launch raids by your Cherokee Indian units on the French-allied Indian villages near Ohio Forks, but even if successful, that would merely dent the French total by 1 VP.
374 8/2/2017 6:13:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message An unadjusted 3 on the 9-12 column results in 2 step losses. So that's a clear victory for the French and Indian defenders of Fort Duquesne. I would reduce one of my full-strength Marine units and one of my full-strength Indian auxiliaries.

Message from France:
That's an adjusted die roll of 5, which means the French inflicted 5 step losses on the British -- a devastating initial volley. The resultant losses knock the British down to 10 CFS, which will put them on the 9-12 column, with no DRMs.

Message from France:
French fire first, and are doubled. I had 10 CFs at Ohio Forks, as I recall. And I do have many more auxiliaries than you do, so that requirement is met.

Roll on the 17-21 Column; +1 DRM for my leader there (Dumas).
371 8/2/2017 5:54:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Play Strategy card as Event #11: 1 / Ambush!
Play before Battle in Wilderness or Mountain if you have Auxiliaries. May not be played if enemy has Fort, Light Infantry, or more Auxiliary units than you. Fire first, double strength (before any column shifts), unless enemy also ambushes.

Message from France:
I'll play my last card for the event.
370 8/2/2017 3:01:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Of course, you are correct. I apologize. Please proceed with combat
369 8/2/2017 3:00:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Return Strategy card to hand #10: 1 / Fieldworks

Message from Britain:
368 8/2/2017 1:05:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Two corrections.

If you leave a 2-6 behind in Upper Monongahela (your main force is now in Ohio Forks), then you've only got 15 CFs (1x4-4; 3x3-4; 1x2-6 = 4 + 9 + 2 = 15). You're right that you do have to leave one unit behind if you make this move -- although, actually, what this really means, is that the 2-6 should have been left behind in whatever those mountains were when Forbes made his previous move.

Next, as the card text indicates, as the Attacker, the only thing you can use a Fieldworks card for is to cancel an opponent's play of a Fieldworks card on defense, after the defender plays it -- which I have not done.

So you need to return the "Fieldworks" card to your hand.

If any of that affects your choice of what to do with this move, let me know. If not, then I will proceed to resolve the combat.

367 8/1/2017 11:32:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #10: 1 / Fieldworks
Play before Battle if you have Drilled Troops. If defending, place marker--attacker shifts 1 column left. If attacking, remove defender's marker. (Marker also removed anytime owner chooses or if attackers win.)

Message from Britain:
Playing this for the battle that results.
366 8/1/2017 11:32:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Sorry. I absolutely positively did. I've got to keep better records.

Forbes can only carry six units, so a 2-6 stays behind.

For that card, The force invades the fort at Ohio Forks.

Your call as to in or out and resolution. I have 17 CF attacking.
365 7/30/2017 11:03:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Mike, you already made this move with this leader and troops in Post # 358.
364 7/30/2017 7:42:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #7: 1 / Massacre!
Play when enemy stack of both Indian and Drilled Troops units captures a stockade space, fort, or fortress. Receive 1 VP. All Indians in the space eliminated.

363 7/29/2017 11:37:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message And +2 VPs for the French. The VP marker track now stands at FR3, with a further +1 VP expected for the two successful raids.

But what will happen in the Ohio Valley?

362 7/29/2017 11:34:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message That's a further loss of 1 step for the French and 4 steps for the British, which is far more than is needed to finish the job.

Fort William Henry falls. The Black Watch are eliminated and Abercromby is either killed or captured. The last remnant of the British Army of the Hudson is eliminated, but no one can question the courage and gallantry they displayed, especially in their final doomed defense of the Fort. Montcalm' army has also taken a heavy pounding, losing 9 steps in this campaign.

I'll eliminate the under-strength La Bourgogne regiment.

359 7/28/2017 10:58:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Sorry to go dark on you, Mike. I had a major deadline to meet at work by COB Thursday, and then I flew out today for a week's vacation. Still, I will try to get a move out as soon as I can.

355 7/23/2017 11:31:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Sometimes the dice do not break your way. That was the only result I could have gotten that prevented the fort from falling this Impulse.

Each side loses 3 steps. For yours, it doesn't make much difference, since all of your units are the same. So I'll eliminate the 1/60th, 3/60th, and 4/60th Royal Americans, leaving only the 1/42nd Black Watch.

For the French, I'll apply the losses as follows:

1 - Reduce the full-strength Bourgogne Regiment
2 - Reduce the full-strength Mississauga Indian 1-6
3 - eliminate the under-strength La Sarre Regiment

And, since I rolled a 1, we must do a Leader Loss check for you.

Message from France:
+1 Siege Level, enough to proceed to an assault.

The French have 17 CFs, which normally would be enough to roll on the 17-21 column, but they get shifted one column to the left for an assault. Montcalm again confers a +2 DRM for his tactics rating.

The British have 12 CFs, so they roll on the 9-12 column, but have no modifiers for any of their leaders.

Message from France:
I'll use this to activate Montcalm and his troops in the siege lines outside of Fort William Henry at HCN. He will proceed to roll on the Siege Table and, if successful, on the Assault table.

First, however, I must ascertain whether you have (and if so, wish to play) the Coehorns card.

340 7/16/2017 5:23:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Very good. I will get the full move file out when I get home later tonight, and then it will be your turn.
339 7/16/2017 6:16:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I see. The file I saw didn't show that there was anyone at HCS, hence my confusion. I obviously didn't read the log closely enough. So to go back, the four strongest units into the fort with leaders, and RR by themselves in the mountains.
338 7/16/2017 12:26:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message This is a somewhat involved process that implicates a number of rules, but the key points are that you canít choose not to reduce your remaining full-strength units, and you canít retreat your Drilled Troops to HCS. Hereís why.

At Post # 306, I used a campaign card. My first move (A) took Rigaud and the Repentigny CdB unit from Crown Point down through Ticonderoga and Wood Creek to HCS, which my previous opponent had left ungarrisoned, in his desire to concentrate everything he had at HCN to face Montcalm's expected attack. My second move (B) took Montcalm and his entire army down the Lake George road to attack Abercromby's force at HCN.

In Post # 324, you elected not to try to challenge the movement of Rigaud's small force to HCS with Rogers Rangers, the only unit that could have done so (and which in any case would have had only a 50% chance of success). So we then proceeded on to the main event: the Montcalm-Abercromby battle at HCN. The odds actually favored the British, so I was very fortunate that the dice broke my way as decisively as they did, giving the French the victory and forcing the British to retreat.

Before the British retreat, you must first determine your losses. You have 14 units, 10 of which are already reduced, 4 of which remain at full-strength (1 x 4-4, 1 x 3-4, & 2 x 2-6). You must lose 7 steps.

The first rule that matters here is 7.63, which provides that you may not assign losses from a battle so that some units are eliminated while others remain at full-strength. Thus, the first thing you must do is reduce each of the 4 full-strength units. Once that is done, you have 3 more steps to eliminate, and you can allocate those losses however you wish.

Once you allocate your losses, you then must decide how to handle your retreat. You have 11 units left at this point. Four of them can retreat into Fort William Henry, along with whatever leaders you wish. Per Rule 7.92, fifth bullet point, your remaining Drilled Troops must retreat to either a cultivated space (none are available) or a fortification.

However, the second bullet point of Rule 7.92 provides that defeated troops may not retreat to spaces with unbesieged enemy units Ė and thus my CdB unit with Rigaud at HCS blocks that retreat route. Thus, any remaining drilled troop units (there should be six of them) must be eliminated. Rogers Rangers, at reduced strength, can retreat into the Adirondacks, again with any leaders you desire.


337 7/13/2017 2:45:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I eliminated all but a full 4-4, a full 2-6, a full 3-4, and a reduced 3-4. But since there were 9 reduced units in the stack, I think I should get two back. Please advise.

I'd like to put the aforementioned units into the HCN fort, as you said, with Dunbar, and Webb and Abercromby in HCS with 2 reduced 3-4, and Rogers' Rangers to Adirondack S.
336 7/13/2017 2:40:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message (ie the fort at HCN.) But can't the rest retreat to HCS? There is a friendly fortification there. That's not the space you attacked from.
335 7/13/2017 2:38:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I don't understand your statement about British losses. Yes, Rogers Rangers can retreat to Adirondacks S. And yes, the leaders and only 4 drilled units are inside Fort Wm Henry
334 7/11/2017 10:42:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message So, you should have received the game file as it existed at the start of the 1759 Late Turn - French Impulse 5.

Don't forget that I need to know which of your units are retreating into Fort William Henry and which are being eliminated before I can generate the move file for French Impulse 5.

And I salute you for continuing! The French have gained a slight edge now, but the final outcome of this game is still very much perched on the razor's edge. It should be an interesting and challenging exercise for us both.

333 7/11/2017 1:41:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Sure. This will be as of the start of the French turn.
332 7/10/2017 1:48:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I don't mind playing it out at all. Without the map, though, I have some difficulty seeing the situation. Could you send me a VASSAL file?
331 7/9/2017 2:02:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message If you would like to play this out to see how it goes, let me know how you will allocate your losses, and I will prepare a move file.
330 7/9/2017 1:58:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Alas, Drucour is killed, probably by a sharpshooter from Rogers' Rangers while leading the pursuit of the enemy fugitives. Montcalm has a close scrape, but survives.

328 7/9/2017 12:14:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Oops -- there was a typo in that last post. That should have been:

BR: 1 +0 DRM = inflict 5 step losses
327 7/9/2017 12:13:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message And that was just the result I needed.

FR: 5 +2 DRM = 7 = inflict 7 step losses
BR: 5 +0 DRM = inflict 5 step losses

The French win. They receive +1 VP for the victory.

Pursuant to Rules 7.62 & 7.63, the French losses will be as follows:

1 - eliminate 0-4 Marine
2 - reduce Caughanawa 1-6
3 - eliminate La Reine 2-4
4 - reduce Periere 1-6 CdB
5 - eliminate Languedoc 2-4

The Battle of Hudson's Carry North proves to be an utter disaster for the British. Because Drilled Troops (which I believe does include the Light Troops) must retreat (Rule 7.92, 5th bullet point) to either a cultivated space or a friendly fortification, you can choose 4 of your Drilled Troops to retreat into the fort, and Rodgers Rangers can retreat into the mountains (presumably Adirondacks South). The other 9 units must be destroyed.

Obviously, this puts you into a position where no one could blame you if you wish to concede the game, for whose outcome you obviously bear no responsibility whatsoever.

The British have 30 CFs, so roll on the >28 column on the CRT. Their leader is Abercromby, so no enhancement for his tactical rating.

The French have 23 CFs, so roll on the 22-27 column. They get a +2 DRM enhancement for Montcalm's tactical rating.


325 7/8/2017 12:01:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Thanks, Michael. I just saw that you had weighed in on this, so I will proceed to resolve the remainder of my move tomorrow.

Perhaps the crappy hand was the real reason my former opponent left the game?

1. I could describe what the key points on the map are, and we could try and play it out. You've only got 5 more moves to make. You could find an example of what the board looks like on BGG.

2. You could resign/withdraw, and then I could solicit a replacement for the final few moves on Consim World, or elsewhere.

309 4/12/2017 10:42:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message We'll start by focusing on the first half of my move. Rigaud moved with the under-strength Repentigny CdB unit through Carillon and Wood Creek to HCS, where you have a fort, but no garrison.

You could try for an Interception from HCN, but the only unit that can attempt the interception is the Rodgers' Rangers unit (per Rule 6.721), since this is a lone unit entering a wilderness space.

Play after naval move along Amphib arrow. May not be played same year after Louisbourg Squadrons. The unit or force may land in a French-occupied or -controlled space (place Amphib marker).

Message from Britain:
Activate Forbes - Alex to Allegheny S.
297 3/17/2017 9:04:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message And I, on the other hand, have nothing going on since I'm retired.
296 3/5/2017 10:39:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message And my apologies for the delay. A trial that I had thought was going to resolve with a guilty plea is now going forward after all, so my hours at work have gone through the roof over the last two weeks.
295 3/5/2017 10:30:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Finally -- a decent die roll!

The raid on Schenectady succeeds, and since this is a roll on the Cultivated space column, there is no need to roll for a leader loss. Schenectady goes up in flames, and a raid marker is placed.

The Huron unit returns to its base in the Pays d'en Haut. Pursuant to Rule 10.413, Dumas elects to join them, hoping to enjoy a new anthropological experience by observing the celebrations and joining in the dancing, like Montcalm was known to do

Move file to follow.

May not be played if British Regulars already played this season. REMOVE Place three 3-4 Regular units and a leader, if available, at any ports.

Message from Britain:
More British units. Where?
286 2/11/2017 11:04:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message No 2nd attack at Tican? Oh well.
285 2/11/2017 12:13:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message For a moment, I thought, "Well, at least that's closer." Then I checked the raid table and found that not only is this unsuccessful, but my Cayuga unit loses one step. They return to their village. The townsfolk of Trenton appear to maintain a careful watch!
