555 11/26/2017 5:31:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #70: 2 / Intrigues Shirley
Play if French have at least 1 VP and Shirley is unbesieged. REMOVE Eliminate Shirley.

NOTE: This card was held from the 1760 Early Season turn.

Message from France:
As I have this card, I’ll activate Shirley in Albany with 3 Provincial 2-4s and a 1-6 Mohawk.

They move NW via Canajoharie [drop a 2-4 off there] to Oneida Carry West.
554 11/26/2017 5:20:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message This game can now be deleted. You 'own' it.
553 11/18/2017 12:38:00 PM 1760 Late Season France Message Back from Athens and ready to go when you are. Waiting in the garage was the game 1750. It covers this WW period and is fantastically well produced in terms of artwork. It also looks fairly simple.
552 11/6/2017 5:00:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message With you needing to sort out your house moving and me being abroad for most of the week after this coming one, let's give ourselves enough time to have a smooth start. How about pencilling in Saturday 18th November as a start date?
551 10/23/2017 4:40:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message The more limited French regular forces certainly are a problem. Blow them and you might never recover.

Shall we swap sides for another game? I'm OK with it not starting until you have your move sorted out.

The other game I am getting into at the moment is Sekigahara, now that there is an online implementation.
550 10/22/2017 5:25:00 PM 1760 Late Season Britain Message I don't have a good strategy for the French in this game except to try and take Albany early which takes a lot of luck with cards and the die. I think the game is interesting but with conservative play favors the British and American side. They certainly get a majority of troops in the game. Raiding to get 1 point a turn certainly helps the French and ties down a lot of resources but the British/American side basically needs to wait and build up and defend early. I'll go ahead and pick up the game. This ending happened just in time. The movers are coming tomorrow and this will allow them to move my game table. I'll try and get something going next week or later this week. Do you want to try this again or something different?
549 10/22/2017 8:04:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message Thought 2: I tried everything I could think of with the raids. There was some bad rolling, but you did have a strong perimeter that adjusted to meet my attempts to find weak spots.
548 10/22/2017 8:03:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message Thought 1: when I last played this we had the old basic rules and perhaps added in some optionals. These integrate those into one and do make supply / interception important.
547 10/22/2017 8:02:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message Yes you have done it with that Surrender card.I did have Bastions Repaired to pull a siege back from the brink but Surrender gets the job done instantly.

I think that seals the fate of French Canada and we should leave it there.
546 10/21/2017 10:19:00 PM 1760 Late Season Britain Set Deck Reshuffle Deck will be reshuffled before next deal
545 10/21/2017 10:18:00 PM 1760 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #6: 3 / Surrender!
Play in place of a roll on the Siege Table. At Louisbourg, you must already have Siege 1 or 2. Capture the fort or fortess intact. Enemy player places defenders at his closest unbesieged fortification.

NOTE: The deck will be reshuffled before next turn's cards are dealt.

Message from Britain:
I'll use this in place of the siege roll at Montreal and capture the fortress intact. Montcalm and his force go to the nearest fortification which I believe is the fort at Oswegatchie (3 spaces where Quebec is 4 spaces unless I am missing a stockade or fort). This will give the Americans/British 3 victory points and put the score at 13 VPs and should give me the game unless you can get 2 more VPs in addition to the 1 for the raid that you already have to drop it below 11 at the end of the turn.
544 10/21/2017 10:09:00 PM 1760 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #13: 1 / Blockhouses
Play before enemy rolls on Raid Table. All enemy Raids this year use Stockade column (place marker)

Message from Britain:
Use this to activate Wolfe at Montreal. He will conduct a siege of Montreal.
543 10/21/2017 10:07:00 PM 1760 Late Season Britain Message The militia beat off a savage attack at Concord with a 1 to 1 result. The Algonquin Indian flips to a 0-6 and retreats back one to Ossipee. The militia flips and goes back to the Northern box.

537 10/21/2017 2:36:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message Levis did his bit there as he joins Rigaud in the dead pile.
536 10/18/2017 12:02:00 PM 1760 Late Season Britain Message Levis is killed but Vaudreuil retreats.
A siege marker 0 goes down at Montreal.
British gain 1 VP and victory points go back to 10 VPs for the 2nd battle of Montreal.

Message from Britain:
Wolfe wins the 2nd battle of Montreal with a 4 to 2 result. I will flip one British regular and the light Infantry for my 2 loss factors. The French reduced regular, the Ottawa Indian 1-6 and the reduced militia are eliminated for the 4 loss factors. Also, the roll of a 1 for the attackers invokes a leader loss check for the French.

Declare the remaining leaders and units to be OUTSIDE the fortress: Levis, Vaudreuil, a 2-4 regiment and the 1-6 Ottowa Indians. They stand and fight behind the fieldworks, joined by one [1]-0 Canadian Militia. No other cards from me.

531 10/17/2017 9:11:00 AM 1760 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #18: 1 / Amphibious Landing
Play after naval move along Amphib arrow. May not be played same year after Louisbourg Squadrons. The unit or force may land in a French-occupied or -controlled space (place Amphib marker).

This time he takes the 3 Royal Americans 4-4's, 4 British regulars 3-4's, 1 Light Infantry 2-6, one ranger 2-6 and 2 reduced Provincials 1-4's and Webb (11 units and 30 factors) and moves back to Montreal to attack Montcalm.
This time the French militia will raise the French defense column if they deploy to the 13-16 column again. Attack will be under the 22-27 column due to the fieldworks unless you have more combat cards. I will not play a combat card for this attack.
Does Montcalm stay and fight again or retreat?

525 10/15/2017 8:52:00 PM 1760 Late Season Britain Message The French win the 1st battle of Montreal with a 5 to 5 step loss result. I will flip the 4 provincials and one of the British regulars for my 5 step losses and retreat back to Ile aux Noix. Both of your full strength regulars and flip for your 1st and 3rd step losses and probably eliminate the detached marine for the 5th step loss. You could flip the Militia units for the 2nd and 4th step losses or use the full strength courier. You gain 1 victory point and victory points drop to 9 VPs in the British favor. This should somewhat make up for your defeat at Oswego.

Message from France:
498 10/9/2017 4:36:00 AM 1760 Late Season France Message Sorry, didn't notice 493. I need to discard the card I thought I was going to hold. It was Coehorns, which I would have held to try to frustrate a siege assault. I'll discard that now and draw another card.

Raids: not going at all well in the later stages when you have good defences. The detachment loss was painful, but I wanted to have more of a chance of defeating anything that came my way.

They destroy the stockade and move to White Mountains Central.

485 10/5/2017 11:53:00 AM 1760 Early Season Britain Message The reduced regular at Oswego that was flipped was actually a 3-4 reduced Highlander but still counts as a regular under rule 3.11 and is now a full strength 4-4.

French may not play after Quiberon or if Quebec is British controlled. Restore 3 French or 6 British reduced Regular or Light Infantry units to full strength.

Message from Britain:
Here is the elusive card that you have been looking to get. I will use this as an event and flip 6 British regulars and light infantry units to full strength.
Flip the 3 reduced regulars at Ile aux Noix to full strength
Flip the 1 reduced regular and 1 reduced light infantry at Oswego to full strength
Flip the 1 reduced regular at Hudson Carry North to full strength.

Message from France:
1. Leaving a 2-4 behind, Vaudreuil activates in Naioure Bay and BOAT MOVES, with a 2-4, 0-4 and 1-6Coureur, to Montreal to join the forthcoming fun.
481 10/5/2017 5:13:00 AM 1760 Early Season France Message If the reinforcing army had made it, the outcome might just have been in doubt.
480 10/4/2017 2:24:00 PM 1760 Early Season Britain Message Montcalm survives and retreats (your choice) - probably back to Montreal. British get 1 VP for the battle win and 1 point for the stockade making Victory points go up from 7 to 9 VPs. The stockade is destroyed at Ile aux Noix. And it is now your turn.

Message from Britain:
Wolfe wins with another lucky die roll against Montcalm inflicting 8 step losses which eliminate the 2 French regulars, the detached marine unit and the courier while suffering 3 step losses. I will flip 3 British regulars for my 3 step losses. Additionally, the natural 6 die roll makes Montcalm have a leader loss check. This roll is for Montcalm (killed on a roll of 1).

Battle of Ile aux Noix:
First roll attacking British force under Wolfe of 32 factors (5 regulars, 3 royal americans, 1 light infantry, 1 ranger and one reduced provincial) with +2 for Wolfe and -1 for the stockade for a net of +1.
2nd roll defending French under Montcalm with 8 factors (2 French regulars, 1 Marine detachment and 1 courier) with +2 for Montcalm.

Message from France:
Levis interception roll from Montreal.
475 10/4/2017 2:00:00 PM 1760 Early Season France Message Levis will attempt to intercept into Ile aux Noix with Rigaud, two 3-4s, a 2-4 and the 1-6 Coureur. This would leave Dieskau in Montreal with a 2-4.

Levis gives a +1 modifier, so success on a roll of 3-6.
474 10/4/2017 1:44:00 PM 1760 Early Season France Message I think my foul weather play just staved off the inevitable.
473 10/3/2017 10:18:00 PM 1760 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #39: 2 / Stingy Provincial
May not be played if British Assemblies Enthusiastic. Choose either the Northern or Southern Department and the British player must eliminate 1 of its Provincial units.

Message from Britain:
Yes, the foul weather stopped Wolfe and company at Hudson Carry North. Use this to again activate Wolfe. He will include the reduced provincial at Hudson Carry North in his force but drop the reduced regular 2-4 there and march all to Winooski stockade where he drops off Shirley. Then he continues with the force to Ile-aux North to battle Montcalm. Wolfe should have 5 regulars 3-4's, 3 royal americans 4-4's, one ranger 2-6, one light infantry 2-6 and one reduced provincial 1-4 for a total of 32 factors in those 11 units and Webb. Again, Montcalm may try and avoid battle or stay and fight. You have several interceptions possible too.
472 10/3/2017 7:12:00 PM 1760 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #45: 2 / Raise Regiments
May not be played if Assemblies Reluctant. Within Assemblies track limits, place 4 Northern or 2 Southern Provincial units at any fortifications in their Department, or restore all Provincials of one Department to full.

Play when enemy is about to move. For that one activated force, unit, or leader, land or boat move limited to 2 spaces and no naval move allowed

Message from France:
I’ll assume this stops Woolfe’s advance at Hudson Carry North. It is only delaying the inevitable though.
470 10/2/2017 9:45:00 AM 1760 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #70: 2 / Intrigues Shirley
Play if French have at least 1 VP and Shirley is unbesieged. REMOVE Eliminate Shirley.

Message from Britain:
Yes, I only have 1 militia in the Southern Department and 2 in the Northern Department.
Use this to activate Wolfe at Albany. He takes Shirley, Webb and all the troops there (5 regular 3-4's, 1 reduced regular 2-4, 1 ranger 2-6, 1 light infantry 2-6, 3 royal americans 4-4's with a total of 33 factors) and moves all by boat move to Winooski where he drops off Shirley and then to Ile-aux Noix to battle Montcalm and his force in the stockade there.
Montcalm can try and avoid battle or you could intercept from Montreal and Green Mountain North.
469 10/2/2017 1:35:00 AM 1760 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Event #41: 3 / British Politics
Slide Provincial Assemblies marker one box in a favorable direction. (If French play, British player removes Provincials as needed.)

Message from France:
My count puts you at 2 Southern and 10 Northern, so no immediate impact.
468 10/2/2017 1:30:00 AM 1760 Early Season France Message That is the first one in the Southern Colonial Militias box, isn't it?

466 9/30/2017 2:27:00 PM 1760 Early Season France Message Replacement move. I have gone with the original Indians intent. Same card.

The Ottowa and Ojibwa 1-6 Indians move (Pays d’en Haut) – Allegheny North.

Villiers leader moves (Niagara) – Allegheny North.

465 9/30/2017 2:50:00 AM 1760 Early Season France Message Am pondering moves as, having misread that card, I had a follow-up planned that utilised those Indians.
464 9/29/2017 6:06:00 PM 1760 Early Season France Message True! I jumped to the Niagara bit.
463 9/28/2017 10:42:00 PM 1760 Early Season Britain Message You can't play the Western Indians as an event without a fort at Ohio Forks as it says on the card.

Message from France:
Indian roll.
460 9/28/2017 5:13:00 AM 1760 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Event #27: 2 / Western Indian
Play if you have fort at Ohio Forks. Place ORANGE or--if you have a fort at Niagara-- BLUE/ORANGE Indian units totalling half a die roll (rounded up), or a full roll if French VP >4. Place units at their settlements. For every 1 you could place, you may instead restore 2 to full.

Message from France:
Use this to see if I can bring on / restore BLUE/ORANGE Indians.

Looking at the year, it is interesting to think ahead a decade and a half. Meanwhile Liegnitz and Torgau happen 'this year'.
459 9/28/2017 5:07:00 AM 1760 Early Season France Message I note that the map says Surrender at Montreal in late 1760.
458 9/26/2017 7:24:00 AM 1760 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #65: 3 / Royal Americans
REMOVE Place the four 4-4 Royal American units and a leader, if available, at any fortresses in the Northern or Southern Departments.

Message from Britain:
I have been waiting a long time for this card to come up on the British side. Play as an event and place three 4-4 loyal Americans at Albany with Wolfe and force there and place one 4-4 at Boston. No more leaders left to enter.
Now the steam roller is intact.
457 9/26/2017 1:03:00 AM 1760 Early Season France Message That sets the tone, doesn't it.
