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

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

Russian +card or

Prussia (can't be preempted)
898 6/21/2017 1:13:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Russian +card?

Or British preempt?
897 6/21/2017 1:12:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message No intercept


896 6/20/2017 10:30:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message A Prussian SP is killed in the second battle of Thuringia.

My last 2 CPs
5/6: Kutuzov +4SPs to Zhitomir
5.5/6: Baltic Fleet leave St. Petersburg for the GoB
6/6: Sevastopol Sq moves to Black Sea

Turkey may intercept.
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.
889 6/20/2017 7:46:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Frogs inflict 1/4

Second battle of Thuringia

886 6/20/2017 7:24:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message I don't have anything to help with the current battle ... good luck!
885 6/20/2017 7:01:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message I would not play any if I had one
884 6/20/2017 6:55:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Bill, do you have any RESPONSE card that can further help here?
If not, I roll the dice
883 6/20/2017 6:34:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message correct for Russia
882 6/20/2017 6:19:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #11: 4 / Great Redoubt
Halve disrupts against you. Enemy must retreat after one round unless you are routed or eliminated.

Message from France:
I think Prussia and Russia have only reserves left - so I can play my BC.

Please correct if wrong.

877 6/20/2017 5:29:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Event #30: 2 / To the Death
Void any land evasion (including the effects of previously played events such as Hussars & Grenzers) OR a just defeated enemy must fight a new battle without further terrain effect, evasion, interception, or retreat.

Message from Russia:
Let's try to complete the Encirclement of Leipzig.
We fight a new battle.

Any response or additional battle cards?
876 6/20/2017 5:09:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message touche'......

:-)
875 6/20/2017 4:53:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Sorry you had to wait Roberto. How thoughtless of me.

Nappy&Castanos+4 Frogs retreated to Franconia.
874 6/20/2017 4:17:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message I am waiting for confirmation of the French situation after the Battle of Leipzig....
873 6/20/2017 4:16:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message I think Pete's msg#836 is what is expected allies would discuss in this game.
I think msg#843 is ok as well.

I think msg#838 is where Pete goes too far.....

The coalition must discuss strategies to knock the Ogre down, or the game would be one-sided. (you have the same number of cards and....you can coordinate them...:-)....)
872 6/20/2017 3:28:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Ah Roberto - my agreement was not with you to ignore Pete's advice. Rather it was with Pete to refrain from giving it.
871 6/20/2017 1:35:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Steve, you should have learnt from my play on turn 2 that I do NOT always follow Pete's game advises (which it is in general a good thing to do anyway...:-)....).
My decision was driven by the next card I am playing.

However, before I play my response, I want to confirm the situation with the French.
1) Nappy is crippled for the whole Impulse (i.e. until just before next Russian card)
2) All Spanish are dead except Castanos
3) Only 4 French SPs remains with Nappy.
Please confirm.
Thank you
870 6/20/2017 12:22:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message and of course 1 Russian is lost and 1 Prussian (no choice on this). Forgot Robert played a 6. He has 2 CPs left.
869 6/20/2017 12:14:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Never mind the attrition question ... I see French attrition is halved rule 9.45
868 6/20/2017 12:02:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Not to be picky but shouldn't the French have lost 2 to attrition at #853? There are two sixes rolled for the French and one six rolled for the Spanish ...
867 6/20/2017 12:00:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Russians have 2CP remaining on current card play ...
866 6/20/2017 11:22:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message Austrians and Prussians have no further cards to play. Russia may have some. If Russia is done the Prussians pass.
865 6/20/2017 11:12:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Haha. Thats what I said Pete - fortunate that you did not give any advice.

note that the route was cancelled by Rear Guard, so no loot roll
864 6/20/2017 10:56:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message Steve, I am not advising anyone but I do need to coordinate with allies on common moves. Roberto you get to roll for a rout v. Nappy - 1-4 and you get a resource
863 6/20/2017 10:52:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message That was a tough run of cards and dice for the Frogs

Fortunately we had that pregame agreement that Pete would not tell others what to do......just think how bad it might have been had Pete not kept his advice to himself.
862 6/20/2017 10:24:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Nappy+4 & Castanos retreat to Franconia

Russia has 2CPs remaining
861 6/20/2017 10:16:00 AM 1809-1810 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Event #46: 5 / Rear Guard
Void rout. The victor of the battle remains unchanged and the battle ends. Void Panic event against this battle whether played before or after this event.

852 6/20/2017 10:10:00 AM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #23: 3 / Twelve-Pounders
Roll four extra battle dice before the next battle round. Casualties inflicted do not return fire. Losses are considered battle casualties but do not prevent next round of battle from taking place - even if one side is eliminated.

Message from France:
Well - that was an unfortunate combination of dice and cards.

Frogs will play this to help a little.

I will roll attrition and then the 12 pounders
851 6/20/2017 9:42:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message right now
Allies 22, Fr 14
French/Sp suffer attrition , each loss adds a loss to French side in battle.
850 6/20/2017 9:34:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message I may play one after the dice are rolled
849 6/20/2017 8:32:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Prussia: Play Strategy card as Event #45: 4 / Dysentery
All Forces of one side in a battle space suffer Attrition before a declared battle. Any losses inflicted count as battle losses in the upcoming battle.

Message from Austria:
Play this for the battle. French will have to roll attrition separately for Sp and Fr as they have different effect.
848 6/20/2017 8:31:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Prussia: Play Strategy card as Event #33: 3 / General's Health
Void the Battle Rating of any Commander for the rest of this Impulse (including its effect on any just-rolled intercept or evasion attempt). Subordinate Army Commanders may not substitute their rating for the stricken leader. Not applicable to the Nelson event or to rerolls of battle dice.

Message from Austria:
sadly Nappy is suffering from the flu and fails to make his evasion (he needed an 8 to escape. Battle, before cards is now. Allies 21 French 14. Roberto do you have any really good battle cards? Please play.

846 6/19/2017 11:39:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #92: 6 / Capitulation
A nation of your choice whose Capital is controlled surrenders immedately. Determine Duchies to be ceded with the normal Ceding die roll. Apply all Conquest consequences. Loss of both Capitals is required for Russian surrender. If no Capital or more than one nation's Capital is Enemy-controlled, a Neutral Proxy will not play this event.

Message from Russia:
1/6 Bagration +6SPs to Leipzig
4/6 Bagration/Blucher/York +16 to Thuringia

French for options. Steve, give us time to play responses as well.
845 6/19/2017 11:36:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Forget about it.
I attack.
844 6/19/2017 11:30:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Nappy is not exposed.
He is a 4 and can easily avoid battle. If he does so, then our stack becomes exposed in Thuringia, as he can bring units up from Paris by preempting and attack a stack that cannot be supported (not adjacent) to other stacks (my avoid battle is a 2 General).

He is not even defending a key. Why would he accept battle?
Bill, Pete, do you have a response card who can pin him?
If not, this is not worth it.
843 6/19/2017 9:45:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message you need to do Nappy now, he has a lot of preempts - he is exposed and you are up. As Napoleon (in real life) said that is a move away from the point of decision and a waste of CPs. He has Turkey too so you will never get your HMR card off, you needed to do it first. You need to do Nappy now before the French move troops up from Paris
842 6/19/2017 8:45:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Pete, I need to take care of Davout first.
I can send Bagration to Liepzig or Berlin.
Let me know if you want me to do so and risk an attrition card
841 6/19/2017 8:37:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message you can not use it as an event, you can use it for CPs

839 6/19/2017 7:27:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Well, will do if Holy Mother Russia comes to help
838 6/19/2017 4:39:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Just move with Bagtration + 6 to Space with Blucher pick up everyone there and move everyone into space wth Nappy cost 4 CPs
837 6/19/2017 4:32:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Hey Pete, I hope this is our campaign now....

Are you asking me to attack Nappy or just to stack and stand with the 10 Prussian SPs? (You mention Thuringia twice and it is confusing)

Also, shall I collect the Brits on the way so Bill can also play battle cards?
836 6/19/2017 5:56:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message OK Roberto if you can move Bagration with his 6 plus all the Prussians in Thuringia (Blucher, Brunswick + 10 SPs) to Thuringia and we can hope Nappy will be crushed there
835 6/18/2017 11:44:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Nappy+8 and Castanos+4 in Thuringia

Frog SP in Hesse
834 6/18/2017 11:41:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Castanos is with Nappy.
833 6/18/2017 10:46:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Its not my campaign. You wanted a chance to win. Its time for a gamble. First I see Nappy + 8 Fr and 4 Sp (Sp leader is not with them. Steve, please confirm what Nappy has (and any adjacent French/French allied forces) before we do anything
832 6/18/2017 8:41:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Pete, all ears over here.

I thought you would have taken Bagration with Blucher.
You can consider Bagration army at your and British disposal for the campaign on the Rhine, unless you have other plans.
Let me know.
831 6/18/2017 8:10:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message No preempt

Message from Austria:
not much to do with this one. Build 1 SP in Vienna. Austria is done. French preempt or Russia. If Russia is up I would like to discuss our Prussian/Russian moves.
