74 3/17/2017 11:31:00 AM Turn 2 Bourbons Message you were getting very close to the 20 VP auto-victory and I had a shot at taking Liege back.

Anyway, you are the creator of this module. If you close it and create the new one, we can start the new match.

I would like to keep the Bourbon, unless you want to change.
73 3/15/2017 10:36:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message I should say I would not accept a big battle as the Bourbons. I was lucky, but if the results were reversed it would have been a victory for the Allies as you have real problems replacing losses.
72 3/15/2017 10:35:00 PM Turn 2 Allies Message We can restart your choice of sides. However, unless its really critical I would not accept a big battle near the end of the turn. My move via Liege was not to save Liege so much as to inflict casualties on the Bourbons. The Allies can afford lots of casualties (they get 6 or 7 - after Bank of England) v. the Bourbons 4. This is a game of maneuver and capturing fortresses. Battle are secondary (odd for a game I like where battles are often critical (e.g. Nappy where victories causes wins).
71 3/15/2017 6:14:00 PM Turn 2 Bourbons Message I concede the game.
This is ridiculous ....

Well played Pete.

Let's start a new one.

45 2/26/2017 7:31:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message Hi Pete
I play a 2Ops card
Ops 1: move Army B: leave SP1 in Antwerp; move to Tournai; leave SP1 in Tournai; continue Namur and Liege. You likely stay in the city...
Ops 2, move Boufflers to Seville


Pete, I forgot the rule about stacking. Do you mind if I retreat a corps to Gibraltar from the previous battle?

If it is not ok, put a French corps in Badajoz

I am sending you the file via email.


44 2/21/2017 10:02:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message Yes, my corpo retreats and face a siege.
43 2/21/2017 1:12:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Nope failed. So I assume your corp retreats into Ostend for the siege.

Message from Allies:
possible interception roll for Allies at Ostend
41 2/17/2017 11:21:00 AM Turn 1 Bourbons Message I retreated back to the space where I came from.
I just read the demoralization rules. I made a mistake attacking. I forgot how hard it is to recover.

My last Ops
3/3 Max Ferd +2SPs moves to Ulm

I have sent you the file.
See you when you are back.


PS: I read the rules for 1866. A mix of Hannibal and PoG. It should be easy to play. Disappointed about the deck being only 55 cards

40 2/11/2017 11:46:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message 1 @ flip Br and 1 Sp corp you retreat disorganized. Where do you go (unlike most games you can retreat to any friendly controlled space from a battle Space)

38 2/11/2017 10:15:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Also rules do not specify you can evade by sea so I assume not
37 2/11/2017 10:11:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Both corps stand to for battle pls resolve
36 2/11/2017 9:51:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message Ops 1/3: Bouffers +2 Bayonne > Madrid
Ops 2/3: Leader in Seville +2 attacks Cadiz

You have the option of retreat a corps in the fortress before the battle.
The rules clear specify the possibility to retreat by sea, but they say nothing on whether a force can avoid battle by sea. Do you know? (I would say it should be possible).

I have one Ops left
35 2/11/2017 9:38:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message So you played a 2 and I played a 3. I decide to go first.
34 2/11/2017 6:49:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message sorry lost track of this. I played a 2 so you can choose who is up first.
33 2/8/2017 7:18:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message Now the move

I place the corps from the Force Pool in Bayonne rather than Strasbourg.

NOTE: I CANNOT DRAG AND DROP THE ACTION CARDS INTO THE MAP. I will send them directly to the Discard pile. I am playing a 3 Ops card.

(you can see it by opening the Action Cards window)

Please, reveal your card and proceed with your movement if you played a 3 ops.


32 2/8/2017 7:11:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message Pete,
I do have the same problem, but reverted.
Very hard to swap between the two applications to follow what is happening on Vassal. Consider that this module does not have a movement tracking feature. Hence, when you move a corps on the map, I need to go and read your ACTS entry.
In Vassal you can entry a description of what you are about to do in the log and THEN move the counter or play the card or add the marker (i.e. it is a step by step explanation of the move).

Having said that, let's strike a deal. I will repeat my actions noted in Vassal in ACTS as well. Please, add a few words in the log before you touch things on the map......we should be even...:-)

To the issue now.
My Vassal module does NOT allow me anymore to drag and drop counters from the windows. It may be because I was asked to upgrade to version 3.17 in Vassal.

I will have to ask to help me getting the corps out of the pool in the future.
31 2/5/2017 10:42:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message Roberto
Pls put your questions and moves here, its a REAL pain to dig it out of all the entries in your move.

OK questions
1) On the first turn you have a corp in the Force Pool. Corps can not be built out of the force pool except by resources. You can only flip corps already on the board. You got a corp which goes to the force pool on turn 2. I put it in Strasbourg. You can put it somewhere else when you put down your initiative card. Next interphase you can get the other one out.

Rules are in error - sorry. Go to errata http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?233@@.1dd130bb!enclosure=.1dd70fd5

Note resource/reinforcements sequence of play is listed correctly on the player aid card
30 2/5/2017 8:37:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message reinforcements
2 Subsidy corps(aka German mercenaries) and 0-3 leader to subsidy home
29 2/5/2017 8:22:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Allies have 7 resources
1) flip Austrian corp Innsbruck
2) Flip Dutch corp Liege
3-4) Flip Dutch and Br corp Cadiz
5-6) Flip 2 Subsidy corps Liege
7 Build Lvl 1 Fortified line in Mantua

you get 2 VPs for control of the Med. The Med control phase for victory occurs before the Med control switch because I control Cadiz.
28 2/2/2017 10:29:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message you are up on this, Pete
27 1/28/2017 11:39:00 AM Turn 1 Bourbons Message just sent you the move via email

22 1/22/2017 10:48:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message I played my last card we only have 4 cards this turn - check 1702 special rules. If you have 1 extra card, just keep it for next turn when you have 5 (just draw 4). I never got a file from you for your 4th round. So just forward it along with turn end adjustments and your event for 1703. If you are not sure about what to do just give me a call tomorrow.
21 1/15/2017 6:12:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message You are up on this, Pete.

7 12/16/2016 8:52:00 PM Turn 1 Bourbons Message Hi Pete

I have two questions:
1) I did not receive a Vassal file from you. Shall I assume that you do NOT want to exchange files? i.e. we update our maps independently without sending the log file to each other?
2) I do not understand why you say that I do not control the fortress. Per rule 20.4, 3.a, Liege starts as a Bourbon -1 fortress.

Let me know.
