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:
Okay, thanks - so with this card play, I would have Forbes, 2x 4-4, and 3x 3-4 move to Carlisle, so the current board position should be correct.
66 6/16/2017 1:22:00 PM 1757 Late Season France Message I did not, of course, see it and really only thought of the number of movement spaces knowing that you had plenty of movement. The error in this instance is easily fixable with your solution of Forbes in Philadelphia; so I would have you do that. That being said, my general approach is that once having moved past an error point and cards have been played/dice rolled, etc., then the play stands. Thank you for your honesty.
65 6/16/2017 12:50:00 AM 1757 Late Season Britain Message My leader swap may have been a little over-exuberant. Or to put it another way, it looks like it improperly crossed two land connections. We could probably redo that, since no dice have been rolled or events played since then. On the other hand, recognizing that problem, I probably would have brought Wolfe in to New York, so maybe the fix is having Forbes and Wolfe initially swap places between HCN and New York, then have Forbes use the last card to move from New York to Philadelphia. This will set me back a bit, but that's probably what I would have done.
