131 8/15/2017 11:46:00 PM Turn 1 British Message OK I'll admit I was definitely not paying attention when the TOA was played.

123 8/13/2017 1:46:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Thanks for thinking of us! The French played Treaty of Alliance. I believe I did things right. I manually moved cards because the buttons on top have stopped working for me (on the last file and on this one).

102 7/9/2017 4:05:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Hold your horses!
It was just us, Indians, who must exchange our leader (if possible), as we are the first eligible faction of the next card.
The rest of you can only redeploy your leaders to any space with your faction's pieces.

So, British are still up to undo their move and redeploy Gage if desired.

80 6/8/2017 1:42:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Clarification: Living Rules August 2016

1.4.1. Availability and Removal: Blah, blah, blah...
(continue on page 5)
IMPORTANT: ...
EXCEPTION: The British and French may not do so with
Regulars but may with Tories and Forts.
79 6/7/2017 7:00:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Thanks very much for the comprehensive answer David.

Please can you clarify: "or you MAY take any pieces from the map (Exception: just Tories)"

Why may I only remove Tories to available and then place those? I didn't see anything in rules 1.4.1, 5.1.1, 5.1.3 that refers to this. The event text simple states "Place 6 cubes" so can I not remove regulars to available and then use those?

----

Anyway, I will proceed with taking the event placing only 4 cubes in Southwest thus depleting my available forces.

Indians up next.

P.S - I am off camping so no internet until I get back on June 12th. I'll veto my option to play a brilliant stroke while I'm out. Thanks.
78 6/7/2017 2:39:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message According to the Rules:
5.1.1. Events place only Available pieces (1.4.1) and markers unless specifying from Unavailable, Casualties or West Indies.
1.4.1. Unless otherwise instructed (by Event, 5.1), forces may only be placed from or replaced with those in the Available boxes. Important: Factions, while executing a Command, Special Activity, or Event to place their own forces, may take them from elsewhere on the map into Available if and only if the desired force type is not Available.
5.1.3. An executed Event’s text that can be implemented must be. If not all of its text can be carried out, implement that which can.

So, you can just place your 4 available pieces, or you MAY take any pieces from the map (Exception: just Tories) to available and place the now 6 available pieces.
It is up to you.
77 6/7/2017 12:08:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Gentlemen, sorry for the delay but I have a question.

The Don Bernardo Takes Pensacola event card states "Place 6 British cubes in either Florida or Southwest."

If I want to take the event but I only have 4 cubes available what are my options. Is it OK to A)only place these 4 cubes, or B)I *must* place 6 cubes so I must first make 2 cubes available by removing from the map to available.

Thanks.


76 6/5/2017 6:22:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Send some francs to my allies, and preparer la guerre.
British are up.
75 6/3/2017 4:12:00 PM Turn 1 Indians Message No, they are not. Their turn is finished as they already played the event removing an Indian Village from South Carolina.
It is just a matter of revealing the next card (cannot do that myself right now) and French (if I remember correctly) and then British are up.
74 6/3/2017 3:30:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Patriots are still up.
73 6/1/2017 5:12:00 PM Turn 1 Indians Message Indians are not eligible (as they have just taken their turn), so I guess they cannot play BS.
72 6/1/2017 5:00:00 PM Turn 1 Patriots Message Patriots, for want of much else to do in view of their dire resources situation, takes the Event.

But not wanting to pre-empt whether the scurrilous natives wish to play a Brilliant Stroke card, I've not yet moved the cards on in the Vassal file.
71 5/30/2017 9:17:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Pass. Patriots are up.
70 5/30/2017 9:11:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Brant leads a raid onto Pennsylvania, whereas a War Party from Southwest raids and plunders Virgina.

Patriots resources down to 1.

French are up for event of limited command.
69 5/28/2017 4:54:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Indians pass.

Current event: Indians, then French, are up for
Iroquois Confederacy.
I do not think anyone (French, Patriots) would be interested in playing a BS, but I will wait until tomorrow, just in case.

Upcoming event: Don Bernardo Takes Pensacola.
68 5/27/2017 1:16:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Just noticed that British casualties were not restored to available in the last WQ reset round. I fixed this.

Naval pressure then Muster in Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Charles Town, Savannah. Indians up next.
67 5/26/2017 8:45:00 AM Turn 1 French Message British are up.
66 5/24/2017 9:46:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Just note that Partisans instead of Skirmish action took place, but it is correct anyway.
65 5/24/2017 3:08:00 AM Turn 1 Patriots Message Rally in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut/Rhode Island, and New York, and Skirmishes in New York.
British up next.
64 5/23/2017 6:21:00 PM Turn 1 French Message US is next.
63 5/20/2017 6:45:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Took the event. The brave freedom fighter patriots are up next.
62 5/20/2017 4:43:00 PM Turn 1 Indians Message So British resources down to 8 (-4).
War drums resound in the night and Indians gather in Quebec (free), Pennsylvania, New York, and South Carolina, where they build a new Village.
Indians resources up to 2 (+4 -3).

French and then Patriots are up for Claude Louis, Comte de Saint-Germain.

Upcoming event: French Fleet Arrives in the Wrong Spot
61 5/20/2017 3:26:00 PM Turn 1 British Message I'll give 4 resources.
60 5/20/2017 10:37:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Indians take Command + Special Activity.
As before, we wait for British to send us some resources.
No log produced (no need).
Just state how many resources will be transferred (if any) and I will include everything in the new log.
59 5/20/2017 10:37:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Indians take Command + Special Activity.
As before, we wait for British to send us some resources.
No log produced (no need).
Just state how many resources will be transferred (if any) and I will include everything in the new log.
58 5/20/2017 8:12:00 AM Turn 1 French Message Apologies. Not sure how I did that.
Fixed. French pass, Indians are up.
57 5/20/2017 2:48:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Removal of Tory is fine.
However, there has been some mistake with the End of Winter Quarters.
It seems French has clicked twice on Draw Card: current event should be Admiral Pierre André de Suffren, and upcoming event should be Claude Louis, Comte de Saint-Germain.
However, both have been stacked on the current event deck and French have played the upcoming event instead the current one.
This turn should be replayed.
56 5/19/2017 5:59:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Tory removed from NYC. Reset done, painful Winter Quarters event done. French up first, took the event. Mes amis les americains are next.
55 5/19/2017 12:06:00 PM Turn 1 Indians Message 1 Continental desserts from Massachusetts (only possibility) and 1 Militia from Pennsylvania.

French are up to remove 1 Tory.
54 5/19/2017 3:30:00 AM Turn 1 Patriots Message Apologies all - I completely missed that I had the option of redeploying. I won't do so.
I've added the Regulars and Tories according to the British Release Date Schedule, and so Indians are up to choose which one Militia and one Continental deserts.
53 5/18/2017 8:05:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Patriots are up to redeploy if needed.
52 5/16/2017 11:37:00 PM Turn 1 British Message I corrected Pats building support in Philadelphia and Virginia. Then I moved Gage to Philadelphia. Pats up next to redeploy if needed.
51 5/16/2017 5:52:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Patriots to correct support.
50 5/16/2017 8:59:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Support can only be built in Rebellion Controlled Spaces with Patriot pieces, so Philadelphia (British Controlled) and Virginia (No control, no pieces) are not eligible.
This should be corrected.

Sorry for the delay in spotting this.
49 5/14/2017 6:19:00 PM Turn 1 French Message French can do nothing.
Brits are up for possible leader action.
48 5/14/2017 6:10:00 PM Turn 1 Indians Message Brant stays put.
47 5/14/2017 5:47:00 PM Turn 1 French Message The way I read it is that if possible, the first faction (French in this case) must change leader if possible. No change here. No other faction is under that obligation.
Then, each faction _may_ redeploy a leader to a space with same faction pieces, or to Available, in this order: Indians, French, British, Patriots
46 5/14/2017 5:37:00 PM Turn 1 Patriots Message Support built in Philadelphia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York.
The French are technically liable for a change of leader for the being the First Eligible faction on the next card, but since they can't change leader yet my understanding is that no other faction changes leader. (But please correct me if I'm wrong.)
If the latter is correct, Indians are first to choose whether to redeploy their leader.
45 5/14/2017 11:37:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Rewarding loyalty in Quebec, New York, and Norfolk cities. Pats up next to build support.
44 5/12/2017 11:51:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Scattered Indians retreat to South Carolina, whereas Brant (now alone) goes back to Northwest.

Resources:
British to 16 (+13)
Indians atay at 1 (+0)
Patriots to 10 (+2)
French stay at 4 (+0)

British are up to build support.

43 5/12/2017 11:17:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Removing Tory to available.

Pats and French are in supply so Indians to resolve supply next.

42 5/11/2017 3:46:00 PM Turn 1 Patriots Message Patriots pass, gain one resource.
The next card is drawn, and Winter Quarters appears and immediately occurs.
No one has achieved their victory condition.
The British must determine what to do about their poor lone Tory in New York who has become separated from their supply lines.
41 5/7/2017 3:02:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Brant marches with 1 War Party into Virginia, leading the War Path.
Settlers should stay away from our land!

Patriots are up.
40 5/6/2017 4:19:00 PM Turn 1 British Message March then Skirmish in Philadelphia. Indians are next.
39 5/4/2017 5:35:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Took the Event. Patriots have money, French are running out. Probably won't result in any kind of unrest or revolution or anything.
Brits are back up.
38 5/3/2017 10:21:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Pass. Back to the French.
37 5/1/2017 4:05:00 PM Turn 1 French Message Pass. Brits are up.
36 4/30/2017 8:48:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Thanks to the cooperation of the British forces, Indians gather in Northwest, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Finally, French are up.
35 4/29/2017 3:27:00 PM Turn 1 British Message I'll give my fellow Indians 2.
34 4/29/2017 8:30:00 AM Turn 1 French Message Some advice: don't trust the white man.
33 4/29/2017 8:29:00 AM Turn 1 French Message Apologies, it was not clear (to me) that you were waiting for something.
32 4/29/2017 8:21:00 AM Turn 1 Indians Message Hey you French scoundrel!
We Indians were trading with British Chief, and we are still waiting for him to send us some resources to play our command.

I should have made it clearer in my previous post, sorry.
That's why turn 12 is numbered 12a. We (British/Indians) still have to take the second part.
