1187 4/18/2017 10:34:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Players other than France need specific cards to get Prussia, or to be in the rare event of pre-empting to get it

Britain has an advantage there with Admiralty to build a hand, and Sweden can help if eh gets Royal Wedding or the ilk
1186 4/18/2017 10:33:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message You often may not have the choice, it would be whoever gets the cards to get them there.

If you have the choice then you need to consider how you defend that pact once you have it, as without specific cards restoring a broken pact needs 9CP, one of which must be a + reserve


Russia usually wants to play her home card for the event and early and thus unable to defend a pact she gets

Austria wants to hold her home card usually, but often has better things to spend CP on than diplomacy

Britain has two home cards and often doesn't have things to spend CP on, so usually parliament + 4CP is enough to guard pacts as admiralty gets played early.

However usually in 2, 3 & 4 player games France gets Prussia simply because she can pre-empt to get it and also buy it down other peoples tracks with relatively useless Spanish CP
1185 4/18/2017 10:24:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Yes again thanks for all play again ? I would still like to play non-French but one question when Prussia comes in on the allied side who is the usual major partner? Britain?

Roll a die. That many enemy Units/leaders of their Commander's choice do not appear in the first round of battle and are unaffected by losses therefrom. If the battle is lost, they must retreat with the survivors of the battle. If no Units/leaders remain to give battle, none is fought and they retreat. If a second round is fought, they participate normally.

1168 4/17/2017 3:54:00 PM 1811-1812 France Denmark: Play Strategy card as Event #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 France:
This was the card the Danes drew, helpful, but only saves me a few ops:

Austria will automatically be conquered 6+1 -6 occupied keys = 1 or more

Sweden 6-2 -2 duchies = 2 or more

Britain 6+1 - 4 duchies = 3 or more

I have the ops and troops to make Britain a sure thing, but with this I don't need to and will play it on Britain

Besides inflicting hits, rally a disrupted French Unit for each "4" rolled by the extra dice. Only Napoleon's presence at some point during the battle is required, not his well-being. RESERVE

Terrific. I would love to finish this and and would very much appreciate another game right after it (But we will have to do the peace rolls for real so I learn that lesson) ;)
1139 4/15/2017 1:01:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Rod

I am happy to continue, or at least to finish the turn.

That you are finding it fun and useful is what I hoped to achieve when I started

I think we should have a re-match when we are done however

GG
1138 4/15/2017 12:07:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Gareth if you think this has played out that's fine .. I would still like to see exactly what you do with the 4 French cards and am still willing to play. (I know it may be a boring game for you but it's still been fun and useful learning for me)

But if you do want to drop it at this point I understand it's not a an interesting challenge for you and I am very thankful for the game.

Much Thanks

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.

This nation places one of its Armies on this card. Anytime during its next Impulse (whether Scheduled, Preemptive, or Pass), it returns to any space it could deploy to from its Capital. It is then able to move by normal CP expenditure. The Army moved must be capable of deployment to its Capital as if this were an Interphase without being Convoyed.

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.
