Play when enemy stack of both Indian and Drilled Troops units captures a stockade space, fort, or fortress. Receive 1 VP. All Indians in the space eliminated.

Message from Britain:
I'll use this as operations to complete the fort at Ticonderoga.
The Bastions repaired card would really help best against a fortress like Louisbourg or Montreal where you need siege level 2.
335 8/17/2017 5:51:00 AM 1758 Late Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #5: 1 / Bastions Repaired
Replace a Siege 1 or Siege 2 marker on the map with Siege 0. (You must use a whole Action Phase to play this event.)

Message from France:
I had this ready in case you were not completely successful.

Use it to place a stockade at Green Mountains North.

This card was the carry-over from last season.
334 8/17/2017 5:43:00 AM 1758 Late Season France Message Good progress for you. I would have liked that to have taken another play, but the Coehorns card does deplete your hand. Not that that necessarily matters much.
333 8/16/2017 7:20:00 AM 1758 Late Season Britain Message Both leaders survive the assault. The siege marker goes away but now you get to go last in the turn.

Message from Britain:
Ticonderoga fort goes down fighting and inflict 1 loss factor on the British which flips one regular there. The French fort is removed and replaced with a British fort under construction. Victory points go up by 2 VPs to 4 VPs. The natural roll of a 6 also causes a leader loss check on the British.
1st roll is for Braddock
2nd roll is for Webb

Message from Britain:
It's getting late in the season so I better activate Braddock and his force of 22 again at Ticonderoga and continue the siege. This time I will play the Coehorns & Howitzers to ensure the fort falls by giving a +2 to the siege roll and a +2 to the assault.
328 8/16/2017 3:37:00 AM 1758 Late Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #36: 2 / Fran‡ois Bigot

324 8/13/2017 6:18:00 PM 1758 Late Season Britain Message Raid is successful at Easton and a raid marker goes down and the stockade is eliminated there. Your courier and Dumas go back to the nearest unbesieged fortification. I believe that is the fort at Niaoure Bay with Montcalm.

Interception roll for the Light Infantry at Reading trying to intercept the courier at Easton. Need 4-6 for success.
321 8/13/2017 5:45:00 PM 1758 Late Season France Message Yes, I didn't move the intercepting Light Inf.

Make the move to raid to Easton then. The intention was to move to raid where there was an interception risk, but only from a light.
320 8/13/2017 5:44:00 PM 1758 Late Season France Message Let's see what I haven't recorded on my map.
319 8/13/2017 7:16:00 AM 1758 Late Season Britain Message I have the 2-6 Light infantry and stockade at Reading. See log entries 281 and 282. Are you sure that is where you want to raid? You would have to successfully win a battle here first.

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:
Use this to activate Braddock at Ticonderoga. His force with conduct a siege against the French fort.
I'll go ahead and roll on the siege table. If you have a card that will influence to siege table you may play it after seeing the result.
314 8/11/2017 6:32:00 PM 1758 Late Season France Message And unluckily, for me, that turned out to have been a wasted card.
313 8/11/2017 6:31:00 PM 1758 Late Season France Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from France:
Useful interception on 3-6.

Message from France:
Half a die roll of Blue/Orange Indians.
308 8/11/2017 3:14:00 AM 1758 Late Season France Play Strategy card as Event #24: 2 / Northern Indian
Play if you control Montreal. Place BLUE 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:
Play for event as Indians needed.
307 8/11/2017 3:11:00 AM 1758 Late Season France Message I had hoped for more from Montcalm's adventure, but you can never be sure.
306 8/9/2017 10:36:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain End Turn Deck was reshuffled.

305 8/9/2017 10:36:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Message I figure that you had a 66.7% chance of winning at Oswego with Montcalm's +2 advantage even with the successful interception. If I had failed to intercept the odds would have been about 83% in your favor. So, I realize that I was quite lucky.
Since you are keeping your last card, I will end the 1758 Early Season.
304 8/9/2017 10:33:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #62: 3 / Quiberon Bay
Play if Louisbourg Squadrons REMOVED, if you control Louisbourg, or after 1759. REMOVE French may not play Diplomatic Revolution, Victories in Germany, Troop Transports, or Regulars. Starting next season, French get 7 cards and British go first.

Message from Britain:
The conditions for this event seem far removed at this point so I'll play this for operations and move Braddock and all his force of 22 factors (6 regulars, 1 Lt Infantry and the Rangers and Webb) 1 space to Ticonderoga and besiege the fort. Place a 0 siege marker there. You have a Marine 1-4 unit that could intercept but I doubt that he will risk the battle and the loss of 1 VP.
303 8/9/2017 6:57:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Message Final Card of Season: I am going to PASS and hold the card into the next season. Over to you for final card play.
302 8/9/2017 6:52:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Message Reduce another 3-4. So what is NOT reduced in the force is one 3-4 and one 1-6 Coureur.

299 8/9/2017 6:51:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Message Close battle. Your reinforcing interception certainly helped.
298 8/9/2017 12:26:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Message Murray is killed fighting at Oswego. That is not good losing a leader of his ability.

Message from Britain:
I almost forgot the Leader Loss check at Oswego. Since your roll was a "1" I must roll for each leader there. A roll of "1" will kill the leader.
1st roll for Ambercromby
2nd roll for Murray
3rd roll for Johnson
296 8/9/2017 12:19:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #34: 3 / Small Pox
Choose a space with >4 units. Enemy eliminates steps equal to half a die roll (round up) or a full roll if >8 units present (reduce all before eliminating any). Then remove all Indians.

Message from Britain:
I was going to save this to keep it from being played on me but I'll use it now against Montcalm's force of 8 units to flip 1 to 3 more units at Niaoure Bay. I'll let you roll and apply the results.
295 8/9/2017 12:16:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Message The British and American force gets lucky and wins the battle at Oswego with a 4 to 5 result. I will flip the Onondaga Indian and three provincials for my 4 loss factors. You have 5 loss factors and must retreat back to your fort at Niaoure Bay.
British pick up 1 Victory point and Victory points go to +2 in favor of the British.

Message from Britain:
Battle at Oswego: This will be a major battle for our game because the winner will gain a victory point and the fate of fort Oswego hangs in the balance.
1st roll is for Montcalm with his 6 regulars and 2 Couriers for 20 factors with +2 for Montcalm.
2nd roll is for Ambercromby with 2 Highlanders, 1 Light Infantry, 4 Provincials and 1 Indian for 19 factors with no adds to the die roll.
Both rolls are under the 17-21 column.

Message from Britain:
Johnson and his force of 1 Indian and 1 Provincial at Oneida Carry West will try and intercept Montcalm at Oswego. He would need a 3-6 for success.
291 8/9/2017 5:44:00 AM 1758 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 2 / Foul Weather
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:
It was tempting to play this against one of your moving forces, but I don’t want to drain my cards.

Activate Montcalm in Naioure Bay and move everybody [so, Levis, six 3-4s and two 1-6 Coureurs = strength 20] to Oswego with the intention of bringing Abercromby and co. to battle.

I’ll let you decide how to respond and play this out. If there is a battle I am not playing a card to influence it, but do have a +2 to the roll for Montcalm.
290 8/8/2017 11:17:00 AM 1758 Early Season Britain Message One addition: Johnson and the Onondaga Indian will move to Oneida Carry West joining the provincial at the stockade there after dropping off the provincial at Oswego. That makes only 16 factors at Oswego and 3 factors at Oneida Carry West.
289 8/8/2017 11:11:00 AM 1758 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #2: 3 / Campaign
Activate any two leaders and their forces. Select them, then complete all actions by one before the other. No one may move more than once. Both may naval move.

Message from Britain:
That is a lot of French with Montcalm. With his +2, I doubt that I could win a battle with him. It would be costly for both sides.
I'll use this as an event and reinforce Murray at Oswego.
1. Johnson at Onondago moves his provincial 2-4 and his Onondago Indian 1-6 to Oswego joining Murray.
2. Abercromby at Albany uses boat movement to move the Light Infantry 2-6 there to Oswego.
That makes 7 units and 17 factors at Oswego.
288 8/8/2017 3:30:00 AM 1758 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #46: 2 / Colonial Recruits
Roll a die and restore that number of reduced Coureurs, Rangers, Light Infantry, or Provincials to full strength.

Message from France:
Activate Levis in Ticonderoga.

He BOAT MOVES with his entire force [three 3-4s and a 1-6 Coureur + Rigaud] (Ticonderoga – Ile aux Noix – portage to Montreal [drop Rigaud off at Montreal] – Naioure Bay to join Montcalm.
287 8/8/2017 3:14:00 AM 1758 Early Season France Message That's a massive force building up.
286 8/6/2017 5:11:00 PM 1758 Early 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)

NOTE: This card was held from the Start turn.

Message from Britain:
Johnson is losing his touch with the Indians.
I think I will use this to move the 3-4 regular from Hudson Carry South to Hudson Carry North and join Braddocks army making 8 units and 22 factors there now.
285 8/6/2017 2:55:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Event #33: 2 / Indians Desert
Eliminate up to two unbesieged enemy Indian units from any one space. (Remove Allied markers)

Message from France:
Play against British in Onondaga. Remove Tuscarora 1-6 (and associated village marker in Shawiangto). Also remove a Mohawk 1-6.
284 8/6/2017 2:45:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Message --- I'm getting all your Indian cards and you are getting my reinforcement cards.

That very much seems to be the way. I haven't been able to sustain the expected level of raiding and have had to be inventive. Anything that keeps the flow of regiments down helps the French, weak as they are.
283 8/5/2017 9:52:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #25: 2 / Northern Indian
Play if you control Montreal. Place BLUE 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 Britain:

Use this to place stockades at:
Easton
Hudson Carry North
282 8/5/2017 9:50:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Message Result of the battle at Reading is NE/NE. Since it is a tie, the defender wins and the French courier and Dumas retreat back to Tuscarora Hills.

Message from Britain:
The Light Infantry successfully intercepts at Reading. There is already a stockade there (see log 242) so I don't see the need to play the blockhouse card at this point.
Battle at Reading:
1st roll attacking French courier under the 1 column with +1 for Dumas and -1 for the stockade.
2nd roll defending light infantry under the 2 column

Message from France:
Dumas and the 1-6 Coureur move (Tuscarora Hills) – Reading. Your 2-6 has an interception opportunity. Dumas will then RAID and you might play something interesting like Blockhouses… Over to you to resolve.
278 8/5/2017 11:20:00 AM 1758 Early Season France Message Levis could try but doesn't.

Message from Britain:
Use this to activate Braddock at the fort at Green Mountain South. He moves all including Webb, ranger, Lt infantry and 5 regulars to Hudson Carry North. You could intercept I believe with Levis.
276 8/3/2017 2:36:00 AM 1758 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #54: 2 / Light Infantry
Place 2 Light Infantry units and a leader, if available, at any fortresses.

Message from France:
Levis sees the way the wind is blowing and destroys the stockade in Wood Creek. He moves his force to Ticonderoga.
275 8/2/2017 3:05:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Set Deck Reshuffle Deck will be reshuffled before next deal

Message from Britain:
Use this to activate Abercromby at Deerfield fort.
He takes the two regulars, 3-4's, there and moves:
1. Green Mountain South where he drops off the two regulars. This makes 19 factors with Braddock.
2. Hoosic
3. Albany where he joins the Light Infantry 2-6 there.
273 8/2/2017 2:13:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Message There were stockades in all three that need to be removed.

Matching your construction drive… Flip fort under construction markers at Niaoure Bay, Oswegatchie and Ile d’Orleans to completed side.
271 8/1/2017 9:37:00 AM 1758 Early Season Britain Message Let me modify that last turn a little. Instead of a fort construction at Charlestown, I'll start a fort construction at Raystown. I'll still complete the fort at Deerfield.
270 8/1/2017 9:30:00 AM 1758 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #38: 2 / Provincial Regiments
For each Raided marker within the Northern and Southern Departments, the French player eliminates one unbesieged Provincial unit belonging to that Department.

Message from Britain:

Combplete the fort at Deerfield and start a fort construction at Charlestown.

Message from Britain:
268 8/1/2017 4:40:00 AM 1758 Early Season France Message See my response in email. Additionally looking at the physical card, it has a brown "background" so is a response card per 5.13. Also see the first line of 10.3 (that is the link to the red italic text on the card that says when it can be played). Outside of a raid response it is a 1 Ops card.
267 7/31/2017 8:35:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #13: 1 / Blockhouses
Play before enemy rolls on Raid Table. All enemy Raids this year use Stockade column (place marker)

Message from Britain:
I wonder if I can play this as an event during my turn or if I have to wait until you actually raid and then play it as a response. If I can play it now then I would like to do that. I looked thru the rules and didn't find anything that was clear on this. What do you think?

Message from France:
Final Card: Place fort under construction markers at Niaoure Bay, Oswegatchie and Ile d’Orleans.
256 7/29/2017 7:02:00 AM 1757 Late Season France Message Indian village marker at Kahnawake removed following failed raid.

I'm going to start some construction.
255 7/28/2017 5:55:00 PM 1757 Late Season Britain Message The deck will be reshuffled at the end of this turn. Take your time.
254 7/28/2017 7:29:00 AM 1757 Late Season France Message One more trip to the dentist in a fortnight to fit the cap that is being made.

I'm mulling the final play as I have one card (a 3) and am not sure how best to use it - with the year end in mind. I don't think it is well suited to being carried over to the next turn.
253 7/27/2017 9:05:00 PM 1757 Late Season Britain Message You needed a 6 - 1 roll to win and didn't get it. The reduced Caughnawaga Indian is eliminated and the Highlander is not affected. It doesn't pay to be an Indian on the French side this game.
Hope your dentist visit went well.

Message from Britain:
I think we are in agreement on the interception although I have to reread that section of the rules every time.
The Highlander 4-4 will attempt to intercept the reduced Caughnawaga Indian at Harris' Ferry.
He would need a 4-6.
250 7/27/2017 6:57:00 PM 1757 Late Season France 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 France:
Desperate attempt at getting another VP here. I only have one Indian unit left so there is no second half OP move.

Activate the 0-6 Caughnawaga in Allegheny North. Move down to Shamokin, attempt to INFILTRATE through Harris’s Ferry and then RAIDS at Wright’s Ferry. Your 4-4 at Harris’s Ferry gets to fight (and probably win) a battle if interception is successful (roll 4-6). I think I have this right having read the interception rules again. Over to you to resolve if you agree.
249 7/27/2017 6:42:00 PM 1757 Late Season France Message I think that the Abenaki village at St Francois is removed due to there being no Abenaki left.
248 7/26/2017 11:40:00 PM 1757 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #10: 1 / Fieldworks
Play before Battle if you have Drilled Troops. If defending, place marker--attacker shifts 1 column left. If attacking, remove defender's marker. (Marker also removed anytime owner chooses or if attackers win.)

Message from Britain:
I don't like it when the opponent can go twice at the end.
Use this to activate the Light infantry unit 2-6 at Shawiango fort. He moves to join Braddock and the 3 regulars at the fort at Green Mountains South. This leaves Shirley behind alone in the fort.
247 7/26/2017 11:37:00 PM 1757 Late Season Britain Message The Abenaki 0-6 Indian is destroyed at Portsmouth with no harm to the Northern militia. That was a very long shot at success.

244 7/26/2017 1:13:00 AM 1757 Late Season France Message Raids: at least one got through, but VP-wise two successes are as good as one.

This is for the Indian battle there.
1st roll attacking Abenaki reduced Indian under the 0 column with -1 drm for the stockade

237 7/23/2017 10:49:00 PM 1757 Late Season Britain Message Courier is successful at Lancaster and a raid marker goes down there. However, the Courier takes at hit and is flipped. I think French Creek stockade is the closest fortification.
