You may use two CPs to move your Formations past an enemy Fortress without stopping or Attrition subject to normal battle and interception requirements.

Message from France:
You didn't specify where the CU is coming from, but I'll make the assumption it's not from Rome.

I'll play this for CPs. Blake and 4 CUs move into Rome. I have no cards if you choose to fight.

477 5/7/2017 10:32:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message Humm.... I can see how keeping Austria out for another turn would have built up more troops. But as you said that would make for a very uninteresting game for whoever plays Austria. Besides as lopsided as this game is in France's favor that would seem to give them an even bigger edge with only Britain to worry about.

It almost seems Austria's best bet would be to protect the keys on the first turn except Vienna and then get out of the game for the next 2 or 3 turns. Not very historic and certainly not a game I would want to play in.


476 5/6/2017 4:24:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #59: 3 / Cavalry Raids
Choose any one friendly Army (not necessarily your own). All enemy Forces adjacent to that Army suffer Attrition (except Fortress Flags and those in battle). Unoccupied enemy Duchies adjacent to that Army also check for Attrition and are flagged by that Army if they fail. Voided by Form Square.

Message from Britain:
After Charles retreats, I play is card. Flags count as forces, so assuming Charles retreats to Budapest, Slovenia would need to roll too.
475 5/6/2017 3:56:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message From 448
"I have Britain with only 1 Fleet in redeployment.
I moved it to London but I'm not showing London as a port on the map"

My mistake on the placement. London is not a Port. Place in Sussex.
I had two fleets in Regroup. I ended the Bey of Algiers war, so that fleet should have been in Regroup.
474 5/6/2017 11:07:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Jeff, I might have kept Austria neutral this turn. The French invasion of Russia went badly, but I pulled out before it became a complete disaster and Nappy is still an effective force sitting in Vienna's back yard. Britain probably needs to clean up Ireland this turn (but I'll keep some troops in Paris just in case). What cards everybody got might alter that thinking.

On the other hand, I could see a lot of people thinking they need to get Austria back in the game ASAP. Certainly is less fun sitting around for two turns. Which is why a lot of people don't like playing Austria (or in a five payer game Prussia).
473 5/6/2017 10:58:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Austria loses one CU and must retreat.

France is done with its preempt (unless some card comes out regarding the battle).

469 5/5/2017 9:07:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message Sadly no cards.

Britain me thinks I will have to start playing only to make sure you win.
468 5/4/2017 10:51:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #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 France:
As the event.

Nappy and his tack go from Krakow to Moravia to Vienna. If I read the card correctly, Austria can't evade and Ferdinand can't intercept into Vienna. So unless something happens there will be a battle.

I have no cards. . . for now.
467 5/4/2017 10:39:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Sorry guys but this is the one time a year where work can tie me up. Plus today I found out there's a good chance I'm going to have to go out of town for 2-3 days because of a death in the family. I'll keep up as best as I can.

448 5/2/2017 7:09:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message Okay going to send the map in a moment.

Only things I bumped into were:

I have Britain with only 1 Fleet in redeployment.
I moved it to London but I'm not showing London as a port on the map.

Massena I had with 1 more already - I adjusted the map to show 6, but with what I had it would be at 7.

My keys were off, I didn't double check them but adjusted to match what was listed.

I am most likely wrong on the above items, but wanted to mention them before sending out the map.

444 5/1/2017 8:37:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message France builds 9 CUs in Paris. Massena uses deployment to pick up 4 CUs and bring them back to Milan (gives him 6 CUs.

Paris now has Soult, Lannes and 12 CUs.
443 5/1/2017 8:31:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Sweden gets 2 CUs out of regroup and puts them into Stockholm.

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.
