517 4/30/2017 5:24:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #904: 5 / Napoleon
If Napoleon is present, you may commit the Imperial Guard after seeing all other battle dice. Roll four more battle dice. 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

512 4/27/2017 12:58:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Well that didn't work out the way I was hoping. The fleet cannot move again, so Spain can't use their final 0.5 CP. It is now Sweden's turn. France does not preempt.

Message from Britain:
Spanish re roll
505 4/27/2017 12:47:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Let's re-roll it just to be fair. One could consider the 6 as part of the first two numbers or the last two numbers, depending upon whether you consider the numbers start from the bottom or from the top. Either way, I daresay it is fairest simply to reroll.

Going forward, we should probably decide what makes sense for future scenarios when the number of dice rolled was incorrect. In other words, should the dice always be completely re-rolled, should we take the numbers from the bottom-upwards or from the top-downwards. But for now, let's simply re-roll it.
504 4/27/2017 12:41:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message I just realized th spanish are only 1's but the 6 is one of the first 2 numbers so I'm just going to leave it as it is

Roll a die. If your roll greater than the number of Enemy Forces in Spain, Lisbon, Oporto, and Gibraltar, draw two cards. You must play one of them. Otherwise, draw a card which you may play or keep. Not playable in 1805. RESERVE

Message from France:
Spain builds 2 units in Madrid (4 CP).

The two Spanish squadrons in Galicia leave port into the Bay of Biscay (0.5 CP). The British can attempt to intercept; I believe you would need a 6 or above (+2 British, +1 leaving a blockaded port). Note I won't attempt to evade (being that I think I need a 10 or higher) so feel free to roll the battle dice if you do indeed intercept.

And please note that I still have 0.5 CP remaining, assuming my fleet is still around to use it.

467 4/26/2017 11:07:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I don't play any cards, so feel free to roll the dice if you agree the odds are 3-2.
466 4/26/2017 11:06:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Nice trick flagging the port from an adjacent duchy to evict the French squadron! I wasn't aware you could do that. : )

I believe the +1 modification for a fleet leaving a blockaded port applies only to the interception/evasion roll and not for the battle.

You would get a +1 modification if I failed an evasion attempt, but I am not going to attempt to evade; but rather I'll just stand my ground ... or my spot in the ocean. Hence I believe the battle is simply 3 to 2. (But please let me know what rule you are referencing if you still believe you should get +1 for the battle dice.)
465 4/26/2017 10:42:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Interception is good. I don't play any battle cards do? If not the odds are 4 British ( I get a +1 because I'm on blockade) against 2 French

Britain gets 1 CP to spend and chooses another nation not in the Imperial Camp to draw a card unless Britain is a Subject Neutral. RESERVE

Message from Britain:
Moore and 3 units move to Granada.
Moore flags Murcia and Cadiz
The flagging of Cadiz forces the ship in porting to sea making it so I can intercept it and it can't evade.
Moore and 4 units move to La Mancha. Do you try and intercept? If you do I don't play a battle card. If you don't I flag La Mancha with my last cp.
462 4/26/2017 8:45:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Good point, I build them in Milan.
461 4/26/2017 6:46:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message Home, associate or dual associate duchy are the only places that the rules mention where a nation can build units or leaders.
France can't build in Venice.
460 4/25/2017 3:35:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #13: 6 / Ireland Revolts

Message from France:
France moves two units from Barcelona to Aragon to Madrid (2 CP). France builds two units in Venice (4 CP).

Attrition
450 4/25/2017 12:21:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message The Danes stand their ground. I don't play any cards; however I believe you would suffer attrition (rule 9.41 for entering an enemy duchy via a pass) prior to the battle. The attrition doesn't affect the battle other than you might have fewer units prior to the start of the battle. Assuming you don't lose anyone, I agree it would be 4-3 odds. Feel free to roll attrition and then the battle whenever you are ready.

Message from Britain:
I build 2 units in Svealand and attack Christiania. I m going to use my last co after the battle. I believe it would be 3 Dutch die (1 unit plus 2 from me crossing over a mountain pass) against 4 Swedish die (3 units plus 1 from Gustavus) I don't play a battle card. Do you? You can roll if you want.
447 4/24/2017 10:08:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message By the way, Denmark loses their +1 CP marker due to not having used it before achieving pact status.
446 4/24/2017 10:06:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Sweden's turn.

I hope I didn't do anything that anyone could have prevented. I know I did a lot just now, but I was hoping to keep things moving along so we could get to Sweden since I didn't think there was much you could have done. Please let me know if I screwed up by going so fast.
