1628 5/10/2017 10:09:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Spanish reinforcements
1627 5/9/2017 10:59:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message (I was raised on the game of diplomacy... where everything is negotiable at any moment... i find the rules on switching sides in this game unexpectedly inflexible and draconian. but good for little Austria as i have lived the entire Turn 4 in fear of a... er bear hug)
1626 5/9/2017 10:21:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Yes, there should be 7 prussians in Copenhagen.
Yes, I agree, perhaps you should put that unit there and do battle.


1625 5/8/2017 7:51:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Winner should be the one to kill the most Frenchmen this turn, lol.

Anyone know what to do about Denmark's reinforcement? Based on the rules, looks like I'd have to put the 1CU in Copenhagen and there would be immediate combat? But I don't see any provision for combat in the interphase.

Btw, there has to be an error with Prussia's move to Copenhagen - there are currently 9 units there, when only 7 were moved. I believe 6 got moved from Hanover accidentally due to stacking instead of 4 with the leader.
1624 5/8/2017 3:47:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message Prussia stays in the coalition
1623 5/8/2017 3:31:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message Do forgive Russia his gruffness. This is what bears do - they do not mean to be rude, they just can't help it. :)

I have never had the chance to be in a game still on in turn 5, have never experienced a switcharoo. it seems all my games have always been won by turn 2 or 3.

anyway, thanks for bearing with the rookie nonsense.

so here we go: Spain to begin deployment


1622 5/8/2017 3:03:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message Russia will stay with the Coalition

1621 5/8/2017 2:30:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Sorry - yes, Russia pointed out that I was incorrect with initial post stating that you could keep your flags. My last post was to acknowledge that. Rules preclude keeping flags switching, regardless what I originally said. Only thing I could offer directly is therefore military assistance, hence offer to send an army to the east.

Russia - you have armies in both east and west, anything I could offer to entice you? I could agree to allow you to be the one to flag Vienna, should we be able to conquer Austria. Name your price.
1620 5/8/2017 1:39:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message to hasten things up, I will assume France was wrong and not switch

Russia may now do whatever he means to
1619 5/8/2017 1:44:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Ah, yes, 14.13. I was sure associate duchies could be kept, and it seemed to me that France's message:

"Soooo....first power to announce intention to swap sides gets to keep its previously-flagged FR key(s). "

is that incorrect?
1618 5/7/2017 11:01:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message As Russia pointed out, the rules preclude me allowing a power to keep their flags if they switch sides.

Austria - if you switch, one strong leader (least a '3') will deploy to east in Austria. He will not be defending Turkey though - Turkey has sufficient leaders and forces, and would not be nearly as threatened as north-east Austria.
1617 5/6/2017 8:03:00 AM 1811-1812 Russia Message 1. Russia has been silent because it is not yet Russia's turn to speak (see French comment of two days ago)
2. If Austria switches it cannot keep Milan (see 14.13)
1616 5/6/2017 3:24:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message pointed silence from Russia indicates that I will have to deal with Russian armies whether I switch or not; and, presumably, if i do switch, at least the French might not attack me. maybe.

france, if i do switch, i will require to keep Milan, and a French army in the East of Austria (Bukovina? Dobruja?) to help me keep the hordes off.

gad, i helped build them.
1615 5/5/2017 12:56:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message I believe that if I switch, my armies are stuck in Copenhagen, is that correct? If so, I stick with the allies.
1614 5/5/2017 6:19:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message Austria - if either was contemplating changing camps, why would they telegraph their intentions before your decision?

Either someone switches sides, or the four of you fight of the spoils, which works too. But seriously doubt that more than one power would be swapping sides.

Soooo....first power to announce intention to swap sides gets to keep its previously-flagged FR key(s).
1613 5/5/2017 1:49:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message starting with au.... which is me.
before i decide, i would like to hear about the intentions of my allies, russia and prussia.
1612 5/5/2017 1:48:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message and now... camps
1611 5/5/2017 1:48:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message nice

1602 5/4/2017 8:28:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message look, im happy to draw with you and Russia. you two are great, obviously seasoned players. i would be proud to draw with you two.

as for Turn 5... i am boxed in and see no growth; but a change in alliances - if russia switches and joins france - could really burn my butt. so what is my upside here?

i think russia is your more likely candidate to burn card. and prussia - he cant do worse than france, but given some lucky rolls, he could improve his position.
1601 5/4/2017 8:11:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message i assume this is a question?
1600 5/4/2017 7:39:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message austria-prussia agree to roll a dice and 2 of us burn a card;
