Message from France:
Turkish CPs?
981 8/14/2017 8:40:00 PM 1809-1810 France Turkey: Play Strategy card as Event #911: 5 / Ottoman Turks
You have CPs equal to a die roll. Turkish Units cannot be disrupted in the first round of any battle fought in this Impulse. OR 1 CP and draw a card. RESERVE

Message from France:
Play as the event to roll for CPs

Place three Units and a Leader in any Friendly Prussian Home Duchy. The event (only) cannot be used on Turn 1: the 6 CPs and the "+" capability are usable on Turn 1. RESERVE

Message from Austria:
Prussia will play its reserve and place Kleist and 3 SPs in Berlin.

As it turns out Britain should have played Parliament as it will not have an opportunity to do so unless Turkey or Denmark play their reserves for cards (which they do not then play)
979 8/14/2017 7:31:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message France has a card and a reserve

All others have reserves only
978 8/14/2017 7:24:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Prussia will pass if France still has 2 cards and neither are their reserves. If one of them is a reserve Prussia will play.
977 8/14/2017 1:32:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Prussia is up to play or pass
976 8/10/2017 6:46:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Im afraid floods like this will be happening more and more often. There is just a lot more water in the atmosphere. They called it a 100 year storm, but I expect them more like annually, at least in the south east and Mississippi valley.

Prussia is up
975 8/10/2017 2:28:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message BTW I was in New Orleans last Saturday and observed the rain and flooding first hand. What a mess. Good thing for me my flight out was Sunday afternoon and not on Saturday
974 8/10/2017 2:27:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Good catch. Sail just Wellington+4. Hill+1 remain behind. Remainder of move is the same
973 8/10/2017 6:59:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Bill - the max for a convoy is a leader with 4SP.

971 8/9/2017 11:54:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #73: 5 / Russo-Turkish War
Roll three dice. The Russian transfers a leader plus Units equal to the least of the three rolls to this Foreign War card. Another Unit draft is rolled and filled from the Turn's Reinforcements - or elsewhere - in each Interphase until the War ends. Void if Turkey is Client of Russian Camp.

No Power may join the Imperial Camp in the next Interphase. All Consuls on an Imperial nation's row of the Diplomatic Track not already in Pact status move one box to the left.

Brits are up

964 8/9/2017 2:32:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #49: 3 / Russian Winter
The Russian (even if without cards) selects a Russian Home Duchy to suffer Attrition (excluding any Fortress Flag) and gains two CPs for immediate use in that Impulse for each Attrition loss inflicted. Repeat at the start of each Russian scheduled Impulse. A Neutral Proxy will not play this event unless Russia contains enemy Foces.

Message from Britain:
Roberto I had planned to play this as an event against the French if they were deep in Russia but since they were not I will play this as OPs ...

1/3 Move Moore+4 from Thuringia to Auhalt
3/3 Move Moore+4 and Yorck+4 from Auhalt to Hanover
963 8/8/2017 2:36:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message yes hold off for now on Parliament - obviously it should be given to the Prussians. But if you can get a key or 2 for Britain it would be more useful. Your choice on what to do.
962 8/8/2017 1:10:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Sorry guys I was unable to move on the road. I'm back home now ...

Pete I remember you asking about Parliament, are you thinking maybe late in the turn would be a good time when the French will hopefully have fewer cards?
961 7/28/2017 3:41:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message Guys I need more time ... I will move this weekend after I fly to the mainland
960 7/26/2017 7:09:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message I will get to my move tonight

BTW I'm flying to the mainland on Friday for 10 days and may be unable to move much ...

954 7/19/2017 8:47:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Will be back to map on Tuesday.

Note that France has preempt.
953 7/16/2017 5:05:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Prussia: Play Strategy card as Operations #100: 3 / Frigates
Place a Squadron of any nation in a Zone of that's nation's controlled Port by placing this card in that Zone with a Flag. If blockaded, interception can be attempted. Thereafter, it is treated as a normal Squadron of that nationality except that it has no dice in combat. It is removed and the card returned to the deck when sunk or returned to Port. A Prussian/Austrian Squadron has an evasion dice roll modifier of 0.

Message from Austria:
I think I am up as no one has preempt so as CPs
1) Yorck + 4 to Anhalt
2) unflag Hanover
3) Bulow + 4 to Warsaw (covering Lublin per request)

Turkey is up
952 7/14/2017 9:31:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message Pete, if France gets my keys, your attempt to grab keys in France is useless.my two cents

Last 2CPs for Russia
5/6 unflag Upland
6/6 Kutusov +5SP TO Zhitomir

I am travelling to Europe today until August 10
My moves will be even more sporadic then usual...😊...sorry

God thing is Russia has no cards left
951 7/11/2017 9:55:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Ok am back. Here is my problem. Bulow with 4 will be a speed bump for Davout so an immediate move of him there is what I would call sub-optimal. In line with attempting to win, or at least prevent France from winning my priorities are as follows:

1) Improve my chances of winning - not possible here as Austria is -3 VPs and a subject neutral
2) Prevent France from winning
3) Improve Prussia's position.

This means that I need to save my home card/reserve for Prussia till near the end. This will permit me to use Blucher with 6 or some other leader to strike France at somewhere with some home of doing something to slow down France. Possibly Lublin and Krakow. And my current card will probably be used to move to the west with one of my lesser leaders (not Bulow).

Note sure if this answers anything.
950 7/1/2017 4:28:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Before I commit my other two CPs, I have a question for Pete.

Pete, can you commit Bulow to move to my threatened Duchies (Lublin and Krakow) to protect them?
The last thing we want is France to get more keys. You can still get back Hanover this turn.

Let me know
949 7/1/2017 4:19:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message It makes sense to me.
948 6/30/2017 8:40:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Think I found it - 7.4

Removing an enemy Flag from your
(or an ally’s) Home or Associate returns Control of that Duchy
to the original owner’s inherent Flag (8.22•2).

So if the flag is in your or your allie's duchy control is returned to the original owner. Since Austria is not my ally but rather a subject neutral, then Lublin would become French if I flagged it.

So we evade to Bessarabia

Russians have 2 more CPs
947 6/29/2017 4:10:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message If it were a ceded duchy it could be flagged French, but not sure when it is an associate duchy.
946 6/29/2017 3:25:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message could not find a clarification on your question in the rules, Steve.
Will dig into BGG to explore more
945 6/29/2017 10:02:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Note that France still has a resource. It got 1 for the Austrian submission and 1 for the excess card discard.
944 6/29/2017 7:19:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Question on the evade. If Davout were to move up and flag Krakow or Lublin who would get the key?
If the key reverts to Austria then Davout evades to Odessa.
If the key becomes French then Davout evades to Bessarabia.
943 6/29/2017 6:32:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Make that Odessa instead of Bessarabia
942 6/29/2017 6:28:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Davout makes it to Bessarabia

Russia has 2 CPs remaining
941 6/29/2017 5:49:00 AM 1809-1810 France Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 2


Message from France:
Davout etal evades
940 6/28/2017 10:43:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #907: 6 / Holy Mother Russia
If Russia is not a Subject Neutral or in a Foreign War AND no enemy Forces are in a Russian Home Duchy: • draw two cards and play one of them, OR • Roll a die and gain a Resource if you roll less than the current Turn number. Otherwise, build Units equal to the roll. RESERVE

Message from Russia:
2/6 build SP in Zhitomyr
4/6 Kutusov+Benningsen+9SPs to Upland

French response?
Russia has 2CPs remaining
939 6/28/2017 10:40:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Map check
I have 6 Prussian SPs in Berlin, not 5 as per Steven msg
I have 8 Austrian SPs in Vienna with Charles, not 7 as per Pete msg
938 6/27/2017 8:03:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Russia up (or Pass) then either French Preempt or Prussia
937 6/27/2017 8:02:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #50: 2 / Unguarded Approach
Void all Attrition and combat penalties for crossing one Pass, Rough or Strait. Event may be played after Attrition rolls or shore battery fire to void those results but not after battle dice to avoid land battle losses. A Fleet crossing a fortified strait may use this event to void shore battery fire.

Message from Austria:
As CPs
SP to Vienna - now Charles + 7
936 6/27/2017 6:48:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message No preempt
935 6/27/2017 4:23:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message OK French preempt or Austria up.

Select any nation without a card to draw a card from the deck.

Message from Britain:
Play as an Event
Prussia draws a card
932 6/26/2017 11:02:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Parliament - to Prussia, but not now. No point. Wait to see what the situation. Ideally do it when you just need 1 OPs.
931 6/26/2017 9:54:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Steve I know the feeling. Had my map been correct I would have moved the British and Prussians from Berlin directly west rather than forming that huge army and using up a bunch of CPs in a vain attempt to engage Napoleon ... Oh well

Pete you asked about Parliament. I need to go home and look at my map but I want to ask are you looking for that card sooner rather than later?
930 6/26/2017 8:28:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Would have been so much simpler if I had evaded to Franconia
929 6/26/2017 8:27:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #32: 6 / Anglo-American War
Britain must remove two Formations and two Squadrons to this Foreign War. Discard from play when War ends. If played by a Proxy Neutral during Turn 4 or later, it must be played as an event.

Place four Units of a nationality of your choice in one friendly Home space of that nationality. If played by a Neutral Proxy, it must build in its Capital.

Message from France:
As the event to call up 4 Frogs in Lorraine
924 6/26/2017 7:42:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Screw it. Just leave him at Hesse.

I will go ahead with the Spanish
923 6/26/2017 7:26:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Just home to look at map. And I see that I wanted to evade Nappy to Franconia vice Hesse (was on the road when I rolled the evade)

Let me know if this is OK - and Britain can change its last two CPs if desired.

Will hold off on Spain till I hear back
922 6/23/2017 2:21:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Will get to this on Tuesday.
921 6/22/2017 2:35:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Sorry allies I screwed that up
920 6/22/2017 2:34:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Seriously? I would have moved differently had my map been correct. GRRRR

5) flag Thurginia
6) move Hill+1 from London to Cornwall now Wellington Hill +5

Ottomans are up
919 6/22/2017 2:24:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Russia as the Austrian Emperor is licking his wounds after the appalling performance of his army in 1805.

The Prussian King, being under the thumb of Russia and dependent on British subsidies will do as requested (ordered). He would appreciate Parliament somewhere along the line as he did provide critical cards for Nappy's repulse. :-)
918 6/22/2017 1:21:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Will need to move later ...
917 6/22/2017 4:21:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Made it

Back to Brits for response or remaining CPs
916 6/22/2017 4:20:00 AM 1809-1810 France Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 2


Message from France:
Nappy evades?
915 6/22/2017 4:20:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Ha - I expect it will be cancelled, but Nappy and his 2 survivors will evade to Hesse

Note that the Allied move to Thuringia leaves Brunswick+2 in Leipzig, not +7 (there are 5 more Prussians in Berlin with York, but only 2 left in Leipzig)
914 6/22/2017 2:31:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message British have 2CP remaining ...
913 6/22/2017 2:30:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #108: 6 / Burnt Earth
If there are enemy Fcorces in two or more of your Home Duchies you may play this card face up before you. Place four free Units in Regroup. All CP Flag placements (and removals) in your Home Duchies cost double while this event remains in play.

Message from Britain:
British preempt

1) Move Moore+4 from their cozy quarters in Berlin to Leipzig
2-4) Move Moore+4, Bagration+5, and Blucher+6 from Leipzig to Thuringia. On my map this leaves Brunswick+7 in Leipzig

French have options ...
912 6/22/2017 2:18:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message Roberto I agree we need to go after the keys. To get to the keys we need to go thru some non-key spaces. I'm looking at Thuringia. From there it's two spaces to three keys (Hannover, Nassau, Munich)

I think I need to preempt and get us forward before the French can reinforce from Paris

So both of you have given your consent so here we go ...
911 6/21/2017 10:20:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Talk all you need to. Sort out every detail of coordinated moves.

910 6/21/2017 9:57:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Bill, you have full command of Bagration's Army. Use it as you wish.
I suggest we all focus on taking back key duchies from France.
Killing Nappy is unlikely. If it is on your way, attack him, but I would go after freeing KEY duchies.
(Steve, are you ok with this kind of talking among allies..:-)...?)
909 6/21/2017 6:59:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message You have my permission to use any Prussian you wish - I would not mind you unflagging my key 2 spaces west of Berlin
908 6/21/2017 6:41:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I go on the road tomorrow am. Back Tuesday.
907 6/21/2017 6:31:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message There is an opportunity here for the British to preempt with Hill, pick up one or two stacks in Leipzig, and then take another crack at Napoleon in Thuringia. I would need concurrence from the Prussians and Russians to move your troops. Intelligence reports suggest Napoleon may have recovered his health and would be difficult although not impossible to catch

In any case I do need to check my map when I get home tonight before I can commit to a course of action
906 6/21/2017 5:51:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Correct. Brits have preempt.
905 6/21/2017 4:07:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Prussia passes. Turkey up or (I think) Britain preempt.
904 6/21/2017 3:41:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Yes ... the storm ... hope it's not too bad. Stay safe!

Russia is done so Prussia is up ... no preempt possible on nation without a card
903 6/21/2017 11:11:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Turkey has reserve+1
902 6/21/2017 11:06:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message Russia is not playing the + card

Is Turkey still holding the Reserve?
901 6/21/2017 6:16:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Frogs are 3 and a reserve

Tropical storm rolling in here. Thunder woke me. Was up to check on new roof. Got it finished just in time.
900 6/21/2017 2:05:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message British have four cards and a reserve card ... Steve you are up very late or maybe have travelled west ...
899 6/21/2017 1:57:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Correction

895 6/20/2017 8:38:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I believe I can take Castanos as a loss

Leaders can be taken "with consent of their owner" and I give said consent.
894 6/20/2017 8:28:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message leaders are always last. So French lose 3 SPs - see

11.31 LOSS DISTRIBUTION: Unit (but not leader) losses are divided evenly by nationality. The Commander of a multinational Formation determines which nation suffers any excess kill result. Leaders are eliminated only with the consent of their owner or if there are insufficient Units (regardless of nationality) to fulfill the required loss.
893 6/20/2017 7:49:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Russians have 2CP left
892 6/20/2017 7:48:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Correction - Frogs inflict 1/3

No change in result
891 6/20/2017 7:47:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Castanos and 2 Frogs lost
890 6/20/2017 7:47:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Prussia and Russia each just have reserves.
