496 3/9/2017 2:50:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Well, good game then..

Felt like a puppy dog getting hit by a Mack Truck, but was still fun!
495 3/9/2017 11:18:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message 5 Ceded Duchies - on the basis that I choose 3 Key Duchies (say Grodno, Riga and Kiev) and Xavier gives me two non-Key Duchies, here's the final score:

FRANCE: 16 VPs
+2 Resources
+2 Minor Pacts
+12 Keys gained (York, Wales, Edinburgh, Dublin, Naples, Gibraltar, Venice, Riga, Kiev, Grodno, Warsaw, Nystadt)

BRITAIN: -4 VPs
+1 Resource
+2 Minor Pacts
-7 Keys (York, Wales, Edinburgh, Dublin, Naples, Gibraltar, Lisbon)

AUSTRIA: -1 VP
-1 Key (Venice)

RUSSIA: -3 VPs
-3 Keys (Riga, Kiev, Grodno)

So I finish first with 16 VPs, Xavier finishes second with -4 VPs (winning the tie on movement order), and Geoff finishes third with -4 VPs. Everyone agreed on that?

Franco-Spanish siege of Nystadt:
491 3/9/2017 11:10:00 AM 1807-1808 France France: 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 France:
...for a total of 9 CPs.

1) 1U from Wales to York.
2) Flag York.
3) 1U from York to Edinburgh.
4) Flag Edinburgh.
5-7) Napoleon + Fr 5U + Blake + Sp 2U (travelling as a single army) from Novgorod to Sveaborg.
8) Flag Sveaborg.
9) Napoleon + Fr 5U + Blake + Sp 2U (travelling as a single army) from Sveaborg to Nystadt.

I'll resolve the siege of Nystadt and then make the Ceded Duchies roll.
490 3/9/2017 11:08:00 AM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #905: 6 / Guerre de Course
One or two unblockaded (not Refitting) French Squadrons move Offboard to raid commerce. See Offboard Fleets on the Battleground display. British card losses never include Reserves or exceed Minimum Hand limits in the Interphase, but may include Resources. RESERVE

Message from France:
Yep, this will be it, as Russia's conquest is guaranteed. (I control 6 keys, which gives me a +5 drm and only need a 6 to succeed.) And I will have at least 6 VPs, which is enough to end the game as an Automatic Peace as per rule 5.82.

Anyway, I'll use this and the plus...
489 3/9/2017 11:03:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Back to France for last card play..
488 3/9/2017 11:03:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Turkey: Play Strategy card as Operations #27: 4 / Outflanked
Side of your choice gains one battle die. All played battle cards in this round of battle are voided and discarded. Must be played prior to combat resolution.

487 3/8/2017 11:38:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Absolutely...let's see what you've got! :)
486 3/8/2017 11:37:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message So you are saying we have nothing to loose in the attempt?

Loosing is the expected outcome, no dishonor, but the greater the odds, the greater the glory if we pull it off.. :)
485 3/8/2017 11:31:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Geoff, is Turkey still looking for a way out of this mess? I suppose there are a few cards in the deck you could have that might prolong the game, but I think it's fair to say that if Britain or Austria/Russia were to win this game from here, it'd be the greatest comeback since Lazarus. :)
484 3/7/2017 5:25:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message The unit makes it ashore in Wales. Continuing:

4) Flag Wales.
5-6) Napoleon + 5U from Moscow to Novgorod (joining Blake + Sp 2U already there).

If there weren't tournament tiebreakers for final VP scores, I wouldn't be bothering with all this, but to the extent that I can control my fate in that regard, I'm bound to try and do so. Anyway, Turkey is now up.

481 3/7/2017 5:17:00 AM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #66: 6 / Europe Exhausted
You have six CPs. Modify this turn's Peace die roll by adding a number equal to the current Turn number. Must be played as an event. Return to the deck after the Peace die roll.

Message from France:
France will preempt Turkey...Europe is Exhausted of WINNING, amirite? :)

0.5) 1 sqd from Rotterdam to the North Sea.

I'll roll for the potential British interception and carry on if it fails.
480 3/6/2017 5:54:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #19: 2 / Split Squadrons
Cancel any prior interception result and engage a portion of an enemy Fleet of your choice in the same Zone (including Offboard) without evasion. Ignore the rest which do not participate in the same battle. May be played without an intercept attempt or after or before an intercept/evasion attempt regardless of outcome.

Message from Austria:

Message from Britain:

476 3/5/2017 7:57:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Event #87: 4 / Corn Riots
A nation of your choice must Regroup Forces/Squadrons equal to a die roll. If unable to do so, it must instantly build enough to Regroup or Submit. Flags can be removed for compliance, but they must be markers - not inherent flags. A Neutral Proxy removes Flags, Units, Leaders, and Squadrons in that order. If needed, a Neutral Proxy uses randomly drawn cards from its hand to build Units and will then use its Resources and/or Reserve in that order if necessary.

Message from Britain:
Against Denmark..
475 3/5/2017 5:34:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message (France still has one Resource remaining, by the way.)

472 3/5/2017 5:26:00 PM 1807-1808 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Event #13: 6 / Ireland Revolts
Place a French Unit and Flag in Ulster, Connaught and Cork unless occupied by an enemy Unit or leader. Britain forteits one reinforcement CP for each French flag in Ireland during each Interphase while this event is in effect. Discard out of game once Britain regains control of all Irish spaces.

Message from France:
As the event by Spain - French units and flags pop up in the three non-Dublin spaces in Ireland.

France is next.
471 3/5/2017 5:15:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Over to Spain.

463 3/4/2017 9:15:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #39: 3 / Stragglers
A moving, intercepting, evading or retreating Formation suffers Attrition in the space it has just entered and in each additional space it enters this Impulse. Once played, the affected Formation may not retract its move.

Message from Austria:

I'm afraid this is the best Guerrilla Russia is able to conduct. All lies in the hands of the dice now.
1-2) Build 1U in Tula
3) 1U from Tula to Moscow

France has the option to intercept (I suggest against it, Russia is obviously laying a trap)
462 3/4/2017 9:13:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #44: 3 / Fleet in Irons
Void a Maneuver, evasion or interception by any one Fleet or Grand Fleet (even after making/failing an evasion/interception dice roll). Any Maneuver used is expended and that Fleet must pay double for further Maneuvers in this Impulse. A voided evasion does not penalize that Fleet in battle for a failed evasion attempt.

Message from Austria:
1-2) Build 1U in Lublin (now 2 leaders + 9U)
3) John with 4U from Salzburg to Linz

444 3/2/2017 10:53:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message FWIW, the two experts who have chimed in on CSW about the Persian War card suggest that it's unlikely the intention is that the card could force Russia to submit, so in the absence of a positive ruling, I'll end any confusion and confirm that I'm playing the card for CPs. So my move is as stated, and Xavier has a retreat-or-fight decision to make at Kiev.
443 2/28/2017 5:51:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I think Xavier should respond and continue on the basis that Persian War as the event doesn't cause a Russian submission, but if the answer comes back that it does, we can rewind back to this point, because the game would be over.

(Re: the Russian Resource, Corn Riots doesn't specifically allow a Player Power to use a Resource to draw a card to spend CPs in this situation - it only says Neutral Proxies can do that.)
442 2/28/2017 5:47:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message But he's got a resource to draw a card. Which he might want to spend anyway rather than loose it if conquered.
441 2/28/2017 5:42:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Russia doesn't have any cards with which to spend CPs, though...
440 2/28/2017 5:41:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Even corn RioTS allows you to immediately spend CPS to build units to meet the event, so I suspect that would be true for the war as well..
439 2/28/2017 5:36:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #89: 5 / Persian War
The Russian must place a leader and two Formations on this Foreign War card. Reduce Russian Reinforcements by 2 CPs while this War remains in play.

Message from France:
France:

1) 2U from Warsaw to Lublin.
2-3) Davout + 6U from Lublin to Kiev.

The 4U in Kiev can attempt evasion; if we fight, no BCs here, so Xavier can roll it up. (Battle is 11 v 5 as things stand.) 2 French CPs left.

Incidentally, I'm curious as to what would happen if I were to play this as the event...I may ask at Consimworld, insofar as there isn't a Russian leader on the board to be placed on this FWC card. (If this were to cause an automatic Russian surrender, a la Corn Riots, then obviously I'd play this as the event!)
438 2/28/2017 5:31:00 PM 1807-1808 France Denmark: Play Strategy card as Operations #94: 4 / Early Snowfall
Playable only as a nation's last card. All card CP values (except those generated by events) are reduced by one. Announced CP expenditures which cannot be completed as a result of snowfall are forfeit. Extended Campaign event may not occur during this event. Ends Mud event.

Message from France:
Denmark:

1-2) Build 1U in Christiana. (Now 4U there.)
3-4) Build 1U in Copenhagen. (Now Frederick + 3U + 1 sqd there.)

437 2/28/2017 5:27:00 PM 1807-1808 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Event #2: 5 / Down with the Prince
Place two Units and a Flag of either nation matching the nationality of an Associate Duchy in that Duchy. Battle all enemy Formations without evasion and before any interception is attempted.

Message from France:

Gain CPs equal to a die roll. If France controls Venice, place an available French Squadron there under a Naval Build marker and remove this card from the game. A Neutral Proxy will play this event only if France controls Venice.

Message from France:
Let's go ahead and do this...France preempts Spain:

1-2) Napoleon + Fr 6U + Sp 1U (that's one army) + Blucher + Pr 4U from Novgorod to St. Petersburg. (Blake + Sp 1U remain in Novgorod.)

Battle would be 18 v 7 as things stand - I won't use any BCs - or Wittgenstein can try to evade (1U would have to evade separately). I'd suggest that if Geoff has any Response cards to help in the event of battle, he should go ahead and indicate as such.

418 2/26/2017 1:29:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Wittegnstein retreats to St-Petersburg.
417 2/26/2017 4:52:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Unfortunately, I need Xavier to confirm his retreat destination before I can continue.
416 2/25/2017 11:35:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Assume there is no BC and push forward.
We'll retro it in (and your move) if this turns out to be wrong..
415 2/24/2017 6:40:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message (TYPO EDIT) "...that I'd already rolled."
414 2/24/2017 6:39:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Is there anything we can do to start speeding this game along? I started my current impulse on Sunday, and having spent only 2 of 5 CPs it's now Friday. (And in the past six days, Xavier has built a leader that had already been built and rerolled an interception attempt that I'd already been rolled.)
413 2/23/2017 12:05:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Nothing from Britain..
412 2/23/2017 3:41:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message France wins, 1K/3D to 2K/1D. I suppose I should wait to see if you wish to play any response cards before continuing; if not, Napoleon + 6U now in Novgorod, and Wittgenstein + 5U (and 2 sqds) back to St. Petersburg. (Unless you want to Wittgenstein + 3U to retreat to Yaroslav instead for some reason...you do have that option.)

Message from France:
Nope, no BCs here. Russia has no cards, so I'll go ahead and roll - French attack:
409 2/22/2017 8:42:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message So, in her last dying flails, Russia engages in combat. Does France play any combat cards?

Message from Austria:
Russia's Choices are quite limited, Russia attempts interception in Novgorod, at 14v7
407 2/22/2017 8:40:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Whoops, I did build Colleredo in Lublin before! Indeed, I will instead build up to 9U (+charles + colleredo).
406 2/22/2017 3:16:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Still waiting on Russia's interception decision...
405 2/20/2017 6:11:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message By the way, a battle at Novgorod would be 14 v 7, not 14 v 6 - I forgot about the rough terrain. (Sorry.)
404 2/19/2017 3:47:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message It succeeds if you want it to, Xavier - let me know. (Battle would be 14 v 6 in my favor, of course.)

Message from France:
Potential Wittgenstein interception:
402 2/19/2017 3:46:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #25: 5 / Panic!
The loser of any battle suffers Attrition to all surviving (including disrupted) Units/leaders prior to any rout resolution. Any Attrition losses suffered inflicted are assessed first to non-disrupted Units/leaders and contribute to possible rout conditions. This event can be voided by play of the Rally or Rear Guard events prior to the Attrition roll.

Message from France:
France will preempt Prussia:

1-2) Napoleon + 8U from Moscow to Novgorod (via Tver).

I'll roll for a possible interception by Wittgenstein + 4U in Novgorod and continue if it fails.
401 2/19/2017 3:37:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Xavier - you already had built Colloredo in Lublin in your last impulse! (See message #348.) I think I'll just assume you will build 3U in Lublin - making it Charles/Colloredo/9U there - instead of the leader and 1U and carry on with my next impulse, but let me know if you want to do something different.
400 2/19/2017 3:23:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #24: 4 / March to the Guns
A non-neutral Formation of your choice adjacent to a battle moves to the contested space. This additional Formation joining the battle could trigger attrition/terrain penalties.

Message from Austria:
1-4) Build 2U in St-Petersburg (now 6U + witt + 2 Sqd)

Fear the russian army! Over to Prussia
399 2/19/2017 3:22:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #68: 6 / Polish Uprising
If Prussia is at war with France, place Poniatowski, three French Units and a Flag in Warsaw. Attack all enemy Formations there prior to any evasion/interception. If Prussia is not at war with France, the card must be played as 6 CPs and remains in the game.

Message from Austria:
1-4) Build Colleredo in Lublin
5-6) Build 1U in Lublin (now 7U + Colleredo + Charles)

If Russia manages to survive untill the end of the year, Austria might just make an impact!
398 2/17/2017 5:45:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message No effect.

Austria and then Russia may both proceed (same caveat for Austria re: doing something weird as before).
