176 10/20/2017 9:22:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #901: 6 / Hussars and Grenzers
Only Austrian flages can be placed in Austria by CP expenditure until the next scheduled Austrian Impulse. Until then, all Austrian interceptions and evasions succeed - including one failed just prior to the play of this event. Any CP expenditure for a flag placement rejected by the play of this event is forfiet. RESERVE

170 10/19/2017 8:51:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message (By the way, re: my point about Russia having the preempt, there's probably no point in retroactively allowing Russia to preempt Britain, insofar as Russia can still preempt Austria in due course if she wishes to do so and have most if not all of the same effect.)
169 10/19/2017 8:48:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Wow - no BCs here, so go ahead and roll it up (at 20 v 6).
168 10/19/2017 8:47:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Event #17: 4 / The Weather Gauge
Automatically intercept an enemy Fleet in your Zone at no cost with no possibility of evasion. Each of your Squadrons throws an additional battle die in the ensuing battle. OR: Automatically evade (even after failing an evasion dice roll) and enter any friendly Port in that Zone or exit that Zone (unless offboard) without interception.

Message from Britain:
This will automatically intercept and give me a total of 20 dice.

We'll see how I do this time.
167 10/19/2017 8:46:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #18: 5 / Continental System Fails
Preemptions are not allowed while the Coalition controls 7 Zones. Discard when the Coalition fails to control 7 Zones at the end of any Impule. If played by a Neutral when the Coalition does not control 7 Zones, the event is unplayable and the card is used as 5 CPs.

Message from Britain:

165 10/19/2017 8:30:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Or actually, Russia now has the preeempt.
164 10/19/2017 8:30:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message No Resource (just).

OK, thanks for permitting me that alteration to my previous move. To confirm, I now have Soult on his own in Paris, 4U and a flag in Sussex - probably a waste of a convoy at all, as things have turned out! - and Napoleon + 6U and a flag in London. And I have two of my five CPs left, so:

4) Flag Wales. (Gustavus having failed his interception, that roll isn't interceptable.)
5) Flag Linz.

To Britain.

Message from France:
Just to clarify: either I've convoyed 2U across to Sussex with my first two CPs, or (if Pat would retroactively allow the correct) I've convoyed 4U across with my first two CPs. Either way, the battle in London is 13 v 4 following the failed evasion and the failed interception...here's the French attack:
159 10/19/2017 8:24:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message I mean convoy 4
158 10/19/2017 8:23:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Yes, I was going to suggest moving 2 in
157 10/19/2017 8:22:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Ah, I'm not doing well with the rules and game situation at present, am I? My move of 1U to Normandy in my previous (preemptive) impulse doesn't make a lot of sense in this context! I'm pretty sure I would have moved 2U to Normandy and convoyed all 4U across - indeed, that's nearly the move I made - but this being a tournament game, it's entirely your call as to whether or not you would allow me that correction.

TRADE CENTERS: Gulf of Bothnia, Baltic Sea, Nystadt, Straslund, Danzig, Riga, Sakggerak, Copenhagen. This nation has 1 CP for each Trade Center it controls. Gain a Resource if a die roll is less than the number of Trade Centers controlled by its Camp. Add 1 to the die roll for each Trade Center controlled by the Enemy Camp.

Message from France:
Serves me right for forgetting that Sweden was at Pact status! (I should have moved a squadron to the North Sea, but never mind...)

Anyway, to France:

1-2) Convoy 3U from Normandy to Sussex.
3) Napoleon + 6U from Sussex to London. (The convoyed 3U are left behind in Sussex.)

You have options.
151 10/19/2017 8:09:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Ah, yes of course - Sweden, sorry.

141 10/19/2017 7:25:00 PM 1805-1806 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 2 / General Staff
All unled Units of a nation of your choice have intercept/evashion capability as if led by a "1-4" leader. Such units have the ability to place and prevent placement of Flags like an Army but do not constitute an Army for purposes of a possible Resource gain if routed.

Message from France:
1) 1U from Oporto to Lisbon. (Now Castanos + 4U in Lisbon.)

I'll now pause to conduct a siege, with no BCs - Pat can roll it up.
140 10/19/2017 7:23:00 PM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 5 / Orders in Council
Britain gains a Squadron (if available) and may convert Units/leaders into their CP cost equivalent for the sole purpose of buying available Squadron(s). All such Squadrons gained are placed in Regroup. A Neutral Proxy will play this event only if two or more British Squadrons have been eliminated (and not replaced).

Message from France:
OK, thanks. I'll continue by having France preempt Spain - 5 CPs:

1) Flag Sussex. (The British sqd under construction there is eliminated.)
2-3) Convoy 4U from Artois to Sussex. (Now Napoleon + 6U and a flag there.)
4) 2U from Brest to Normandy.
5) 1U from Paris to Normandy. (Now 3U in Normandy, and Soult + 1U in Paris.)

To Spain.

139 10/19/2017 6:41:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Nope, no problem with that. The duchy is uncontrolled, so you can move forces in.

Any issues with that before I continue?
137 10/17/2017 8:06:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message In regards to your consimworld question, I believe you may not reinforce a space (including a fort) that is not yet controlled. You may siege with the forces currently in the space.
136 10/17/2017 4:00:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Apologies - I've paused to ask a rules question over at Consimworld.

Turkish Formations may not exit Turkey while this event is in play. Those outside Turkey Regroup. Any unspent odd CP of a Turkish Neutral build is used to attempt to end this Foreign War instead of placing the +1 CP marker. The +1 CP marker, if already in play, is removed. Add #1 to all attempts to end Turkish Foreign Wars (but not the Serbian Revolt) while this event is in play.

116 10/15/2017 11:43:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Before we continue - the Brits rolled only 4 dice for the Channel battle; they should have rolled 6.

As a non-combatant, I'll let one of you roll the extra dice. An extra hit will force another round of sea battle, two hits would win for the Brits.
