Will ask for other players. What are your preferences for your nation?
429 6/15/2017 12:51:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Anybody have any power preferences?
428 6/14/2017 3:00:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Ill llay another game.
France is the game owner and only he can end.
Speak up if you want to play again.
Daniel, Do you know of any other players.
427 6/14/2017 2:55:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message Any news? :-)
426 6/12/2017 1:17:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Knowing nick, im sure he has been reading this and electrd not to respond. So with 4/5 people responding this game should end.
Congrats bruce!
Im up for another. Getting five people together is difficult so i like pbem. We might need a replacement or two for this group though.
425 6/12/2017 10:26:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message The fellowship has failed. I vote to concede. No way we can come back esp. after the 2nd turn. I definitely don't play games well online. We should schedule a live game.
424 6/11/2017 12:01:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Bruce,
You played masterfully. You outmanuevered austria and russia and got a nice roll in russia. You won the game before that convincing prussia to join you. So i'm keeping your feet to the fire on this mistake.
In any event I'm still saying you win. There needs to be a mercy rule.
423 6/11/2017 11:53:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Farrell sacrificed his army and cards but likely saved Russia from conquest. I couldn't let Britain build in Belgium so close to Paris, with the French main armies so far away.
422 6/11/2017 11:48:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Look at Game Journal Entry # 392; there is a 2 strength piece in Picardy. Daniel, Farrell should have taken your advice when you recommended Moore intercept Marmont in Artois. My plan all along was to cut off his retreat routes and use Turning Movement so Moore could not intercept in Brussels and the Great Redoubt battle event so he would have to retreat after the 1st round win or lose (unless Marmont was routed).
421 6/11/2017 11:12:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Bah, I wanted to tell him that.
420 6/11/2017 6:23:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message Btw. Picardy is empty so Moore can retreat there with attrition.

"The victor remains in the battle Duchy. The loser retreats to an Adjacent, Friendly Duchy(s) if possible. The first choice
for retreat of Active losers must be to any Duchy from which they entered the battle Duchy. Intercepting Formations, since they reached the battle Duchy first, do not have to retreat to the Duchy(s) from which they came."

11.41 ATTRITION: A defender unable to retreat to a Friendly or Uncontrolled Duchy may retreat to another Adjacent Duchy(s) but suffers Attrition (9.44).
419 6/11/2017 3:11:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message About playing on:

Yes, France will be almost impossible to beat in this game in the current situation. His luck with cards and rolls this turn only made it worse.

So Austria gets conquered with the help of Prussia and Russia is half-dead after this rout. So even conquering Russia is not impossible anymore. Britain on his own is almost no threat to France. Even if Prussia changes camps in the interphase it will be likely too late now.

I really don't like to give up games at the table. But online games are running over months usually and it's hard to stay motivated/focused when the outcome is already 95% sure. So if 2 or 3 other player want to end this game and maybe start a new one i am fine with that.
418 6/11/2017 2:46:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message So battle card play got a bit messed up. But everything else in this impulse went correct as far as i see. (Despite the very unneeded card and roll luck for France... :-P)
417 6/11/2017 2:40:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message "Fractions: French Attrition losses are always rounded up (9.45). Otherwise, round fractions in favor of the player playing the event."
416 6/11/2017 2:34:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message "A battle event(s) may be played by any nation(s) with pieces in that battle. Battle events are played prior to any dice rolls in Order of Movement beginning with the Active nation (which
must play all of its desired Battle events before the next nation declares whether it will play any)."

-> Active nation plays all desired battle cards (not response cards) first, after that anyone else involved can play cards in impulse order.
415 6/10/2017 8:55:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message I figured you had a response card which is why i told you to roll
414 6/10/2017 8:44:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message I didnt know what youbwere doijg but you didn't play one.
Ill do 3/5, whatever ends this game.
Ibthought it was obvious i vote to end with france winning
413 6/10/2017 8:03:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Anyway you read that I was going to play a battle card. I want to see what the other 3 players want to do. Why does it have to be a vote of 4 of 5? Why not 3 of 5 majority or 5 of 5 unanimous? Do you want to end this game?
412 6/10/2017 7:21:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Rules say active player plays one first then in impulse order. I don't see anything about simultaneous reveal.
Still waiting on your vote.
411 6/10/2017 6:23:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message For the future aren't battle cards declared by the attacker first, but revealed simultaneously? The defender's choice might be affected by which battle card the attacker played? We have not had both sides in a battle want to play battle cards. I was surprised when you played your battle card. You didn't say you were playing one.
410 6/10/2017 6:14:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Because you are just supposed to play it and i didnt see you play one.
What's your vote?
409 6/10/2017 6:00:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message If I say I am playing a battle card and ask you if you are playing one , why would you play yours first instead of asking me to play mine?
408 6/10/2017 5:50:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message You need to play one first not say you are. As soon as you ask you lose the opp. You also had an opp to correct when I asked about intercept but didn't.
But to the larger point. Why are we still playing this game? It was over as soon as Prussia joined the imperial camp.
Im taking a vote and if 4 out of 5 agree I'm ending this and france wins.
407 6/10/2017 5:37:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Look under my Turning Movement card play. I said I was playing a battle card and asked if you wanted to play one also. You should have said you were playing a battle card, not actually play it before I play mine.
Look in the Glossary under Fractions.
406 6/10/2017 5:31:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message I also want you to show me where the odd rolls rule is.
405 6/10/2017 5:31:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message France scored two casualties (2 disrupts) , Britain scored two casualties (1 kill 1 disrupt). No winner, but since Marmount was neither routed nor eliminated the Great Redoubt battle card says the enemy must retreat after the 1st battle round. Moore has no where to retreat so the army is eliminated. One unit in Marmont's army is lost.
404 6/10/2017 5:22:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message You are supposed to play battle cards before I do. You did not do so.

Halve disrupts against you. Enemy must retreat after one round unless you are routed or eliminated.

Message from France:
You have prep artillery, but I am fighting from higher ground. I just need to not rout to force Moore to retreat. Yes I am not displeased with my cards overall. By the rules an odd number of disrupts round in my favor.

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.

379 6/9/2017 9:10:00 PM 1807-1808 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Operations #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 France:
Castanos & 3 units move to Granada, pick up a unit and move to Gibraltar. Does Britain play a battle card?

364 6/8/2017 12:49:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Event #16: 5 / Conscripts
A leader of your choice is given two more Units of its nationality - even during battle. The added Units may exceed the Commander's Command Rating even if it is moved into the battle. Afterwards those Units would be subject to normal command restrictions. Can be played even AFTER seeing all battle dice for two extra die rolls in that battle.

Message from Russia:
Hahahahaha... of course. I hoped that the dice would make it at least a bit exciting this turn but they did the opposite.

Thank you Austria for your two brave men who might change the course of the game now...
363 6/7/2017 9:39:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Soult wins 5 to 2. Bagration is routed and loses 5 units, Soult loses 1. Die roll for rout unless there's a card play to stop it.
