928 5/30/2017 12:56:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Looks like everyone should be happy with the following:

France - Michael
Britain - Randy
Austria - Gordon
Russia - Adim
Prussia - Aaron

I'll go ahead and set it up. Scream if you are unhappy.
927 5/30/2017 12:56:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Randy, go ahead and kill this game.
926 5/29/2017 11:41:00 PM 1807-1808 Prussia Message Good job for England. Congratulations.
Any more? Would really like a game of Totaler Krieg. But Nap Wars and others would be good.
925 5/29/2017 2:27:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Both Wellington and Kutuzov have custom ACTS modules (although the Kutuzov one might have expired).
Both have mechanisms similar to those of Nap Wars. Wellington is a bit simpler, Kutuzov is about as complex as Nap Wars.
924 5/29/2017 1:32:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message I'd also be open to Austria if no one wants them
923 5/29/2017 1:11:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message I don't have the other two. I'd like to try Prussia, though
922 5/29/2017 12:07:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message thanks for the rules clarification.

i only won the first game because dice went my way. i am getting my ass whipped as France in Wagram where my luck with dice is a lot like Randy's was in this game. so, lets hear it for the dice.

i won this game because Randy chose to fight on land rather than on sea.
921 5/29/2017 10:10:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message One final note regarding msg 913 - only FR forces outside of France would regroup. Conqueror withdraws from Paris, but otherwise it and its allies can remain in the SN territory or have option to voluntarily regroup. If Brest was chosen for ceded key, FR squadrons would regroup from there.
920 5/29/2017 10:07:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message Congrats Adim. I'm up for another game. Preference is for France then Britain but willing to play anything.
919 5/29/2017 10:06:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message Need to back up a bit for final scores - ranking ends up the same but scores are wider....

France suffers attrition in Toulouse but regains key.

French capitulation is automatic, missed counting Marseilles (Marseilles, Rome, Milan, Nassau, Brussels, Picardy, Paris), roll would be -2 + 7 = +5, automatic

BR gains resource
Only FR home duchies are unflagged - Marseilles, Picardy and Paris (and non-key Languedoc). All associate duchies remain flagged.
BR gains 3 duchies - two keys (assume Brest/Picardy)

FR down Rome, Milan, Nassau, Brussels, Brest, Picardy
BR up Rome, Brussels, Brest, Picardy
AU up Milan
RU even
PR up Nassau

keys/rscs/pacts
FR -6/0/0 = -6
BR 4/1/0 = 5
AU 1/0/0 = 1
RU 0/1/0 = 1
PR 1/1/1 = 3
918 5/29/2017 10:00:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message ill wait for all players to chime in to see if they want to play the new game - and what powers
917 5/29/2017 9:59:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Randy
i'd try them - are there resources for online play?
916 5/29/2017 7:09:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Congrats to Adim. The 100 days fell short once again. Well played.
I'm in for a rematch. Also interested in playing the Napoleonic Wars' very good cousins, Wellington or Kutuzov.
915 5/29/2017 2:26:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message If you gentlemen would like a rematch, I would love to play Russia, which I have never had the chance to do yet.
914 5/29/2017 2:26:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Sorry, typo on Prussian minors:

France: -2k +1r 0m = -1
Britain: +2k +1r 0m = 3
Austria: 0k +1r 0m = 1
Russia: 0k +1r 0m = 1
Prussia: 0k +1r 1m = 2

Please correct me if I am wrong - this is the first time in my life I have seen France capitulate so I probably messed something up.

Thank you all for a good game, and especially Randy for bravely marching on in face of truly awful die rolls and pretty bad cards - a true test of grit and collegiality!
913 5/29/2017 2:23:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Britain chooses Brussels and Rome. France chooses something, probably not a key. All foreign forces on Fr territory regroup and all Prussian, Russian and Austrian flags on French territory are removed.

So we have VPs as follows:

France: -2k +1r 0m = -1
Britain: +2k +1r 0m = 3
Austria: 0k +1r 0m = 1
Russia: 0k +1r 0m = 1
Prussia: 0k +1r 0m = 2

If I have not messed it up, Britain wins.. by the skin of Welly's teeth.

908 5/29/2017 2:11:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message I don't see any attrition or naval build markers, so we can proceed to the all important...

Conquest phase

France capitulates on a roll of 6, modified as follows:

-2 for being stubbornly French

+6 for keys (Brussels, Picardy, Paris, Milan, Rome, Nassau)

here comes the roll




907 5/29/2017 2:04:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Didnt napster have to roll attrition for passing mountains, also?
906 5/28/2017 3:11:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message You're right, Napoleon had 7 SPs, not 8.
905 5/28/2017 3:11:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message More wet gunpowder for Napoleon. Who wants to process the end of turn?

893 5/24/2017 3:46:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #74: 4 / Turning Movement
One of your Armies may move two spaces without interception, Attrition or enemy evasion. It may pick up or drop off Units. Battle occurs only if you enter a space containing an enemy Formation. Turning Movement cannot occur through a Fortress or an enemy Formation unless that Formation is Overrun.

Message from Austria:

890 5/23/2017 2:59:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message France - would Napoleon want to 'evade' a couple spaces backwards? Obviously I'd like to grab Munich, but can push you to Baden if you're looking to retake Paris.

881 5/22/2017 12:33:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message The formation from Paris was not an Army, so could not have intercepted to start with. The Picardy unit could evade, but Paris couldn't intercept.
880 5/22/2017 12:31:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Yes, sad but true.
879 5/22/2017 12:21:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message no, the defeated formation was not an army, so no roll for resource, but a rout and a flag overrun, no?
878 5/22/2017 12:15:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message I believe the battle is a rout?

In which case the battle is a flag overrun, britain gets to roll for resource, and has 1CP outstanding.

Am I correct?

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. If the Consul is in +1 status, it is also flipped to its normal side. Unlike other diplomatic events, this may be played during the first round of 1805.

There is nothing on BGG regarding Calvary Raids that I could find. Only on consimworld as previously pointed out.
OK, let's move on with the extra loss.

Calvary Raids originates with Napoleon, so Tyrol must also roll for attrition.
Leader, 1CU and inherent flag
841 5/16/2017 1:01:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message Russia has already agreed to loose an extra unit. If this is the only card that causes attrition roles, it won't come up again. Otherwise, sure, flip a coin
840 5/16/2017 11:06:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message gents
i have always played with inherent flags rolling attrition
surely, u can get an opinion on boardgamegeek
if u cannot
could just toss a did to resolve the issue?
im sure we'd all like to move on?
839 5/14/2017 8:06:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message While not stated, is not reasonable to assume that "inherent garrisons" also represent police, judicial, tax collecting, etc. infrastrucure neccesssary for any power to exercise "control" over historically autonomous regions? Is a Cavalry raid imbued with the capacity to overthrow the whole administration?
838 5/14/2017 7:59:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message An "inherent flag" represents an "inherent garrison" which confers "control". In this case they may be considered pre-war garrisons. If an inherent garrison can become a casualty, then control is lost and the Duchy becomes independent. While this may be historically defensible, is it the intent of the card to empower Cavalry raids to create liberated Duchies beholden to none of the Powers? What rules would govern this?
837 5/13/2017 6:26:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message From the rules:
A Flag is a hexagonal piece.... A Flag is placed or removed.

An inherent flag is not a hexagonal piece, and is neither placed nor removed.

and would not need an explanation on the card if inherent flag was a Flag.
836 5/13/2017 12:53:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message From the rules:
Forces: Units, leaders and Flags
835 5/13/2017 12:52:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message And I'm not sure what you are talking about :)
From the rules:
Flag: A hexagonal piece representing an inherent garrison placed on the map to show a nationís Control of a Duchy. No Flag is placed if a Duchy is Controlled by the nation which Controlled it at the start of play, but is considered to be _inherently present_
So, inherent flags are flags. Seems quite clear.
834 5/13/2017 12:15:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message not sure what you mean? The rules call for unflagging an originally controlled duchy.
i.e. from 7.41:
A Formation may Flag/unflag any unfortified Duchy it occupies.

Flag is used as capitalized but unflag is obviously not.
833 5/13/2017 12:06:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message would Austria then have to reflag an uncontested original duchy and do the rules allow same?
832 5/13/2017 10:02:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message The definitions in the rules do not explicitly state that inherent flags are "Flags". If so, again no reason for Calvary Raids to state "Unoccupied enemy Duchies adjacent...". This exception definitely implies that inherent flags are not a "Flag" for Forces, else would not need to have the exception.

The rules for submission definitely do not count inherent flags as Forces. I've looked and can only find explanations which back up my interpretation that Calvary Raids only roll for inherent flags of unoccupied duchies. Please find something in bgg or csw or any other gaming post which substantiates your explanation.
