86 2/16/2018 9:12:00 PM 1756 Early Season Britain Message That sounds right! Well, I won't win by playing cheap VP like I did. Lets see how this new year plays out!
Do the French still start even though Pitt has been played already?
85 2/16/2018 12:10:00 AM 1755 Late Season France End Turn
84 2/15/2018 11:58:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message Well, I have to say that was very well-played. It was deeply frustrating for me, of course. I've never before been in a situation in the half-dozen or so WW games I've played where I lost two cards in a single turn and had to face two unanswered enemy plays.

I also now understand why veteran players like James Pei dispose of many of their French stockades almost as soon as the game begins. I'm now beginning to see them just as British VP bait, and it's far easier and less costly for the British to earn VPs from attacking those than it is for the French to earn them from raiding settlements.

Villiers will retreat to Oswegatchie (La Presentation). I believe that's really the only thing he can do?

As far as VPs, things had been at FR1. You gained 3, which would shift it to BR2. But then I gain 2 for my Raids, which brings it back to 0. Let me know if I've missed anything.

I will remove my Raid markers when I do my next Move file.

83 2/12/2018 9:03:00 PM 1755 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).

NOTE: This card was held from the Start turn.

Message from Britain:
Activating a single Provincial in Cataraqui and moving by boat to Toronto and capturing the Stockade there.
All cards have been played and attrition has struck the British provincials. I have done all necessary end of year phases in the vassal file I am sending you now. A new season may begin and I hope it can be a little more exciting than the foul card holding play I executed this late season.
82 2/12/2018 9:00:00 PM 1755 Late 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.

81 2/11/2018 7:57:00 PM 1755 Late Season Britain Message oh boy... my nasty move has bit me in the butt! I need to take care of some things here at home and will finish the rest of the moves in the morning.

Message from France:
My apologies for the delay -- I was out of town all week teaching at the Justice Department's national training center, and I spent last weekend scrambling to get other things squared away before I left.

And, yes, it was pretty painful to contemplate my altered options as a result of your play of the "Courier Intercepted!" card.

I'll use this to move Montcalm, Dieskau, and all their forces at Ticonderoga back into winter quarters at Montreal.

51 1/12/2018 1:34:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message Woodstock successfully resists, but both Carlisle and Harris's Ferry go up in flames, and so Raid! markers will be placed accordingly. Doubtless, there will be political consequences in Pennsylvania!

All of the affected Indian raiding parties lose 1 step. It is some consolation to me that this is only one step more than I would have lost absent your play of the "Blockhouses" card.

Please advise if you have any cards to play.
47 1/10/2018 11:33:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message My apologies for the delay, Jeremy. Both work and family matters post-Christmas have been very time-consuming, but it's all good stuff.

I thought it seemed odd that my Abenakis couldn't just lightly dance away from that clunky column of British Regulars and Provincials. And there it is in the rules -- in the "Exception" under Rule 6.8, "Avoiding Battle."

So that is what they'll do. Your Provincial unit (the Massachusetts men) is also restored to full strength.

46 1/1/2018 12:55:00 PM 1755 Late Season Britain Message Hi Jefferson,

Since Shirley does not have any auxiliaries, your Unit may avoid battle without having to roll. So if you would like to avoid battle, you can go ahead and place him in Onondaga and not have the battle occur.

The raided marker should stay on the board and the VP awarded at the end of Late season per 4.0 B.
I will await your next move :-)
Happy new Year!
45 1/1/2018 12:40:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message I have to head out to attend a social function and go to the office, but will try and get the first move of the last half of the year out tonight.

Oh, and I get 1 VP for the successful raid on OCW.

43 1/1/2018 12:37:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message The Abenaki unit is destroyed, but one of the British/Provincial units must be flipped. I assume that will be one of the Provincials. Just let me know.

And with you having said you are holding your last card, we will advance the turn marker and go to the card draw phase.

Hi Jeff! Boy how can the holiday season get crazy!
I live in Buffalo, NY. I am actually Franco-American. How about yourself where do you live? I actually also work in the courts myself. I am an interpreter for NY state in the region's judicial district.

Shirley leaves a provincial in Oneida Carry East, and moves his combined force with Johnson to Oneida Carra West where it is anticipated that the Abenakis spot the slow British movement into the area and are probably slipping away incognito as this message reaches you.

Thank you for pointing it out
34 12/23/2017 6:33:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message So, I guess you must retrieve "Troop Transports" from the Discard file? Then, presumably, you must play either that or your remaining other card.

Best Wishes to you for a happy, joyous, and relaxing holiday as well (assuming the latter is even possible any more!).

I will play William Pitt, I was hoping you were going to play one of English reinforcements cards in the hope to pick it up in the discard, however I will go ahead and play it anyway.

MPs:3 Boat Movement along the mohawk river to stop in Oneida Carry East.

30 12/18/2017 12:13:00 AM 1755 Early Season France Message The results:

1a. The garrison of OCE repulses the attack; the Caughnawag unit is flipped to its u/s side and returns to its home settlement.

1b. The second Caughnawaga unit is successful against OCW, but suffers significant losses and is likewise flipped to its reverse side and returns to its home settlement. Remove the stockade, and place a "Raided" marker.

2a. This roll (which was an NE in any case) is moot, because the Abenaki arrive to find the stockade at OCW a smoking ruin, with the occasional flame still licking from its charred remains. They encounter the somewhat battered but gratified Caughnawagas getting ready to head back towards the St. Lawrence with their booty and their captives from the garrison.

The Abenakis make camp and contemplate their next move.

I'll send a move file.

14 11/27/2017 10:26:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message I think things aren't as messed up as I initially thought.

1. Both of our respective Regulars cards have apparently disappeared because they are supposed to -- note that the card text actually states "REMOVE," so they aren't supposed to go into the discard pile.

2. The new card that was added to my hand when you hit "End Turn" appeared at the top of my list, so I think it's a safe bet that the card in the equivalent position in your list is the new one and should be discarded as well.

That leaves us with only one lingering problem: that these two new cards are now (or soon will be) in the Discard pile, and there does not appear to be any way to transfer them back over into the Deck. However, that should eventually happen in the normal course when one of us plays the "Surrender!" card.

Or perhaps maybe one of the site's managers will be able to come to our aid with a solution.

In any event, let's play on. But don't forget to discard your top card!

Message from Britain:
I activate Abercromby,

MP 1-4 He uses boat movement and floats up the Hudson River to arrive and dock in Albany where he reads and instructs this year's objectives to Shirley and Johnson who both are relieved to see the arrival of the professional European troops.
12 11/25/2017 9:22:00 AM 1755 Early Season Britain Message Hi Jeff,

I am sorry for this mess I created. This also raises another issue, I am not sure which card was added to my hand. From the best of my recollection, I believe it may be the top card in my hand, however I fear I may be mistaken. Perhaps in lieu of it, I will randonly discard card if you don't confirm the discard of the top card in the order of my hand. In the mean time, I will go ahead and continue with play with a card I know was in my hand.
11 11/24/2017 5:47:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #7: 1 / Massacre!
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 France:
I'll use this to activate Montcalm, who will move as follows.

MP 1-4: He uses boat movement to move with all his subordinate leaders and all his troops from Quebec up the St. Lawrence to Montreal. Here he drops off Vaudreuil and Bougainville.

MP 5-8: Montcalm then continues on with Levis, Dieskau, and his remaining troops to Ticonderoga by way of Ile aux Noix - Winooski - Crown Point. He drops Levis at Crown Point.

Upon his arrival on the headland at Ticonderoga, Montcalm has his army pitch its camp. He surveys the site and pronounces it good.


10 11/24/2017 5:39:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message We now have two problems, however.

1. The first two cards we played -- French Regulars and British Regulars -- are not showing up in the Discard Pile, and they need to be there.

2. Once both of the cards that were inadvertently added to our hands are discarded, we need to be able to get them out of the Discard Pile and back into the deck of cards still waiting to be drawn for the first time.

I will try and communicate with the ACTS module designer to see if he can walk me through these mechanisms. I suspect there is a way to accomplish this.

In the meantime, I will proceed with my next move.

9 11/24/2017 5:35:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message Remember that you will need to similarly discard the new card that was added to your hand.

6 11/24/2017 5:30:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message Jeremy, you do not have to hit "End Turn" after every individual player impulse, but only after all impulses are done for a particular turn. I had to do it originally because the initial housekeeping mechanics occur in the "Start" turn, so it was necessary to "End Turn" there to bring us into Early 1755 and start the game in earnest.

As you will see, by clicking "End Turn" following your move, you moved us along to Late 1755, and each of us has had a replacement card added to his hand.

Thus, I will re-set the Game Turn. I will then discard to new card that was placed in my hand, and you will need to do likewise.

4 11/23/2017 10:20:00 PM 1755 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #58: 3 / British Regulars
May not be played if British Regulars already played this season. REMOVE Place three 3-4 Regular units and a leader, if available, at any ports.

Message from Britain:
Happy Thanksgiving Jefferson! I enjoy the flavor you have added to your playing.
Here is my card:

The British War Cabinet has new plans for the North American struggle with the French. It has decided to strengthen the British colonial presence and has sent three fresh regular regiments (40th Hopson's, 35th Otway's and 45th Warburton's) to New York City under the command of recently promoted General Abercromby.
3 11/23/2017 12:06:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Play Strategy card as Event #55: 3 / French Regulars
May not be played if French Regulars already played this season or after Quiberon. REMOVE Place two 3-4 Regular units, and, if not yet in play, Montcalm, Levis, & Bougainville at either Quebec or Louisbourg.

Message from France:
Jeremy, my apologies for the delay. It's been a very busy few days since I got back to town.

I'll open by playing this card for the Event.

As warm spring weather finally begins to make itself felt in the valley of the St. Lawrence, the residents of Quebec are delighted to behold a flotilla of six ships beating up the river against the current, carrying two regiments of French Regulars (Royal Roussillon and La Sarre), a general, and two ranking subordinate officers of great ability.
2 11/20/2017 11:44:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message Jeremy, I was wrapping up another game (of "Mr. Madison's War") tonight, but hopefully will be able to get my first move out in our game tomorrow night.
