1262 2/17/2018 2:22:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Sorry - should be 3+1 to North Atlantic, 1 stays in North Sea.
1261 2/17/2018 1:01:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message I also had no Imperial Camp forces in the North Sea prior, just 1 BR sqd (and 1 FR sqd blockaded in Rotterdam).

Leaving 1 FR sqd in the North Sea should mean that 3 FR and 1 SP sqd are what moved to the North Atlantic.
1260 2/17/2018 12:03:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Darren I don't understand this

"5.0) 3 Fr sqd + 2 Fr sqd from North Sea to North Atlantic. (1 sqd left behind in the North Sea.)"

I am tracking you have 4 French Squadrons and 1 Spanish Squadron. Sentence would mean you have 6 Squadrons out there ... did I miss a move ?

Not an irrelevant question as my Danes have fleets

1259 2/17/2018 10:31:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message 5.0) 3 Fr sqd + 2 Fr sqd from North Sea to North Atlantic. (1 sqd left behind in the North Sea.)

Intercept there?

1 French CP left this impulse.
1258 2/17/2018 10:22:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message No intercept
1257 2/17/2018 9:39:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message (France has 1.5 CPs left, btw.)
1256 2/17/2018 9:39:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message No casualties. (I should note that 2U are left in Antwerp, btw.) Continuing:

3-4) Flag Cornwall and London.
4.5) 4 Fr sqd + 1 Sp sqd from The Channel to the North Sea.

Will the British sqd there attempt to intercept?

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

Message from France:
I'll play this as a plus card to ensure I get across the Channel this turn. Added to my 1 remaining CP from my previous card, I have 6 CPs left:

1-2) Soult + 4U from Antwerp to Cornwall.

Shore battery fire forthcoming.

We probably can't but, FWIW, we could have moved slowly forward together - guys in Thuringia or Ratisbon instead of Prague or Berlin for example, would have emboldened the Austro-Swedish army group a bit, and made the French a little more nervous (since your final card might be a 2, or might be a 6, and he knows my last card is a 6 as it's my Reserve).
1235 2/16/2018 11:27:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Success on the second attempt - will Britain try to evade? (If evasion is the decision, and evasion is successful, can I assume that Britain will keep trying to evade as long as possible?)

1230 2/16/2018 10:32:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Rod, the last CP you spent was illegal, because of the second half of this rule and sentence (and the fact that Russia has an offboard war with Turkey):

8.4 TURKISH FOREIGN WARS
You are not subject to a Foreign War event against any Client of your Camp, nor can you gain Client status with any nation with which your Camp has a Foreign War.

You can move the Turkish Consul to +1 in the Prussian row, but you can't take it up to Client status. (Feel free to redo your entire move if you wish.)

Enemy suffers Attrition before battle. Leaders are not subject to this Attrition even if being used as Units. Each enemy loss gives you one extra battle die throughout the upcoming battle.

Message from Prussia:
NEXT --- Turkey ? Spain ? French Preempt ?

Well nice use of "Fog of War" Darren I must say, you have to also get the die rolls but most of the odds were right

A fascinating turn/decision for me -- if Soult is about to seize London Gareth I have not enough to interfere with that

3 CPS used for diplomacy

Turkey moves from Unaligned but +1 for France to "Friend of Prussia"

I have been tracking during France's move tonight and that is the best I can do for the coalition right now

No thankyou

1227 2/16/2018 9:30:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Assuming the answer to my previous question is "no", I'll continue:

4-5) Napoleon + 8U from Ratisbon to Nassau (joining Blake + Sp 2U there).
6) Massena + 6U from Venice to Milan.

Prussia is now up.

So, continuing:

2.0) 2 sqds from Bay of Biscay to Mid Atlantic.
2.5) 4 Fr sqds and 1 Sp sqd from Mid Atlantic to North Atlantic.

Each CP spent buys two Maneuvers (13).
1218 2/16/2018 7:17:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message That one fails (because of the Fog of War drm). So I now have 2 sqds free in the Bay of Biscay, and 2 Fr sqd + 1 Sp sqd free in the South Atlantic.

Before I continue, a rules question for Gareth...does the -2 drm for Fog of War apply to patrols as well as interceptions? I'm not sure if they're treated identically in this regard.

1189 2/13/2018 10:42:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message << am I wrong in thinking that was a French controlled space prior to me flagging it ? >>

It was French - the dual-colors are controlled by the lower color by default. So if, say, Spain flagged it away from Denmark with an op, it would go back to France. But then I think anyone on the coalition could still flag it themselves later and it would stick with them and not go to Britain (otherwise Brussels could never be flagged by anyone else in the Coalition). The main implications of the red-half on top are that if Britain flags it, she can build troops there, and that it makes it eligible for certain events.

1181 2/12/2018 8:29:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message The event is legal - the Danish flag is placed because of the event. The question is whether under normal circumstances you can flag a duchy which has the color of another country in your camp. (Usually this isn't allowed - e.g., your units in Hanover can't flag that Duchy as Danish - but in two-colored Associate Duchies, I'm not quite sure.)

Any BCs for Denmark? None here, of course...

Void the Battle Rating of any Commander for the rest of this Impulse (including its effect on any just-rolled intercept or evasion attempt). Subordinate Army Commanders may not substitute their rating for the stricken leader. Not applicable to the Nelson event or to rerolls of battle dice.

Message from France:
The question is whether a Danish flag can be placed in a British Associate Duchy - I'm pretty sure it can, but Gareth is of course the expert.

Anyway, I'm well irked to have to clean up this particularly brush fire...3 CPs:

1169 2/12/2018 12:49:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message Well, you can rout anything if you roll 3 more casualties, you just can't loot unless there is a leader there.

Denmark, when you're up, any chance you could unflag Lublin? It's a card draw for me if the board stays the same, and it would take me 4 ops to do it vs just 1 for Denmark (or 2 for Russia, if it comes to that, but spending minor CPs is probably better).
1168 2/10/2018 5:50:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message You can't rout a single unit - only an army (led by a leader).
1167 2/10/2018 5:49:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message I was hoping for a chance at a rout. *sigh*
1166 2/10/2018 5:44:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message So that move didn't work out quite as well as I'd hoped - my Sp1U died from attrition before it even crossed to Borisov. Never mind...remaining CPs:

2) Flag Munster.
3-4) Build 1U in Madrid.
5-6) Build 1U in Barcelona.

Sweden is (potentially) up next - Gareth, will Sweden use its Reserve?
1165 2/10/2018 5:36:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Right. I forgot Benny was only rated 4.
1164 2/10/2018 5:34:00 PM 1809-1810 France Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from France:
Attrition for the Sp1U moving over the Marsh line:
1163 2/10/2018 5:34:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Benny can only lead 4U, not 5U. (I'll assume 1U stays behind.)
