103 5/26/2018 5:28:00 PM Turn 3 British Message played some event in North Carolina too :)

I like Nevsky a lot. The vassal module is very good and playable. The game itself reminds me of Angola, which is one game that I like a lot :)
102 5/26/2018 3:36:00 AM Turn 3 Americans Message done, Swamp Fox strikes and takes out a couple British PCs.
how you liking Nevsky? i don't want ot make a playtest kit because i'm so busy and they keep changing cards and stuff....how is the vassal module??
101 5/26/2018 3:32:00 AM Turn 3 Americans Message no worries at all. doing move now.
100 5/22/2018 1:46:00 PM Turn 3 British Message Hi!

I am really sorry - I though that I had uploaded already the file. My most humble apologies.

Glad that you were able to cope with the excess of work. I found something similar went I came back from parental leave.

Some reinfocements to Canada :)
99 5/21/2018 2:12:00 AM Turn 3 Americans Message Hey Jamuki,
I know i took way too long for my last turn. you have been so fast on your moves so i just wanted to check to make sure you saw that I did make a move a few days ago.

i'm finally caught up at work after a crazy time preparing for vacation and then catching up after vacation so I should be good to make a play ever couple of days now.
98 5/18/2018 1:01:00 AM Turn 3 Americans Message added 2 CU now up to 5 CU now with Washington.
97 5/2/2018 2:21:00 PM Turn 3 British Message Nice that you enjoyed your vacation. It was a long holiday here, as 1st May is Labour Day in everywhere else in the world but America, and May the 2nd is a Holiday in Madrid (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dos_de_Mayo_Uprising)

I draw my cards and I pass to play any campaign card. Back to you :)
96 4/30/2018 1:17:00 AM Turn 3 Americans Message drew my cards. waiting to see if you will play a campaign card to claim initiative.

moving Lafayette for my last move of the turn and will upload end of turn stuff in a separate log.
91 4/25/2018 9:56:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message I should be able to do my turn tonight, I am in the airport right now heading to Boston for an anniversary trip with my wife. We are going to go to Lexington and Concord where the first shots of this war were fired as well as bunker hill. Sorry for slow pace again, work kicked my butt while I was working ahead to prepare for vacation
90 4/22/2018 8:16:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Friendly reminder :)
89 4/8/2018 6:24:00 AM Turn 1 British Message I'll wait for your 6th play, as I am out of cards :)

I used to work in Lowell, MA. There was a engineering office of Motorola, and I worked there designing the OS and HW for some products of that company. In all my stays, I was quite a Spanish friend who loves to drive and to shot photos, so we did a lot of touring to historical sites and battle-sites and so on, and took lots of photos.
88 4/8/2018 12:46:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message first i'm going to play this to place PCs in Albany, NY; Springfield, MA and Charlotte, NC. that makes NC and NY neutral again and solidifies hold on MA while also preparing a cut off of your support in Northern New England. debating if washington shoudl attack with last card or just manuever.

log up for 6th impulse. debating last card play.
87 4/8/2018 12:38:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message where did you work in New England? I'm going there in a couple weeks with wife for 5 year annniversary and i'm going to go to some battle sites and see Paul Revere's tavern and the place where the Boston Tea Party happened.

so thankful to hear your wife and boy are doing well. hopefully the other medical procedure can go soon.

once i get the rules down for Nevsky, i would love to do some PBEM.
86 4/3/2018 1:13:00 PM Turn 1 British Message I uploaded the file and I am out of cards now :)
85 4/3/2018 1:12:00 PM Turn 1 British Message My second son was born on 03/27. We are all doing very good, even if a bit tired :) My first son is also ok.

Unfortunately, the biopsy is quite complex and we'll not have the results until end of this week or next week.

Hope you had a very good Easter.

BTW, I see that you are also in the list of playtesters of Nevsky. I am really excited for that game :) (I'm in that list too :))
84 4/3/2018 12:28:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message how are your wife and son doing?

I simply removed the PC at Ft. Detroit with a discarded event of yours. As British if you want to pick it up and put in your hand you just need to discard any ops card 1, 2 or 3 and you can place in your hand. for americans to do the same with american events discarded (except for battle which can't be pcicked up) they have to use a 2 or 3 ops.
83 3/15/2018 2:20:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Thanks! British put even more PCs to control back NY, and make it loyal to the true king again! Some little Tory propaganda to go with that (hehehe, I like the tory propaganda, but does not believe it for a moment. I wish in Spain we would have had someone like Washington when we needed it. I also loved New England when I worked there.)

Do not worry about delays. Real life is like that. I myself, my wife yesterday got some surgery, so I was slow both yesterday and the day before (the surgery was to remove a mole skin - the problem is that it's in the stomach and she's 8 months pregnant, we hope to get our second son by mid-april; now waiting on the biopsy to see whether it's good or bad. Does not look good :()

Anyway, I saw the video here, very nice :) Is this video, is it?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dfftINPF0k

The problem is the shipping cost to Europe. I am waiting for a new edition so it get a normal treatment in Europe and grab it in our stores. I love everything Punic wars.

Have a nice day!
82 3/15/2018 1:37:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message now i promise i will make plays more often. sorry again for the inexcusable delays.
81 3/15/2018 1:32:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message good placement of PC's. the Colonists will need to mitigate their encirclements.

my log is up. recruited a general and added CU to Charleston.
80 3/15/2018 1:30:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message podcast should be out any day now. i will let you know when it drops. pre-orders are still available for those who missed the KS. go to Knight Works LLC website if you want.
79 3/4/2018 7:22:00 PM Turn 1 British Message The British continue placing PCs :)

Do not worry! Real life is always messier than boardgames ;) I just sent the friendly reminder because I feared it was not clear that it was your turn :)

BTW, for sure I'll heard the podcast about Hands in the Sea. The Punic Wars are among my preferred topics in HIstory. I just love the subject, and I love deckbuilding + wargames (A few Acres of Snow!). I wanted to get this for my birthday but it is quite difficult to get hold of in Europe :(

Anyway, this is in my top-5 "I need to play" for sure. Some days, it's the even the top-1 :)

Where is the podcast available? :)
78 3/4/2018 12:05:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message Some clandestine French and spanish aid brings a much needed boost to getting the French on board.
77 3/4/2018 11:39:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message sorry Jamuki for the long absence. i promise to do better going forward, and make a play every 3 days. i had a crazy month at work reconciling my end of year books and any spare time not devoted to work or family was spent preparing for a deep dive look at Hands in the Sea on the podcast "The Long View". it is on their YouTube channel if you are interested in checking out the live stream or you can listen on podcast form to a more concise and edited version.
76 3/1/2018 2:57:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Friendly reminder :)
75 2/14/2018 2:43:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Thanks - and sorry for the confusion. File uploaded.
74 2/14/2018 2:29:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message ok, i see you played a 1 OP card. right below that was a even 1783 entry in chat box so i got confused. i saw your corrected follow up log and it looks good with +1 on french track but keeping regulars. you are free to do your move. i took the other log and put it in an obsolete folder.
73 2/14/2018 9:33:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message Iím confused. I need to go back through the Logs. I thought you played a war ends card and placed a PC
72 2/14/2018 8:04:00 AM Turn 1 British Message New file finished and uploaded. I though that you played a 1ops card, so I though it was my turn again :)
71 2/14/2018 2:26:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message a coupel things.

1. you don't lose regulars you only lost 1 CU and the only way to lose regulars is 3 or more CU lost or Von Steuben card...how were you able to flip the tile by the way? whenver i right click the 'Game turn' marker it always just shows "end turn" as option. maybe i have to first remove 3 CU.

2. you don't get to make a PC placement when playing war ends. it's just that card played. can you fix your log for #1 and 2. probably best to just do a new one.
70 2/14/2018 2:18:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message experience is a harsh but fast teacher ;)

one thing to help make the logs shorter, make multiple rolls in a single die roll dialogue box. so make 2D6 for the general ratings then 2D6 on battle rolls.
69 2/14/2018 1:25:00 AM Turn 1 British Message File uploaded. A disaster to the British :) I should have waited for Washington to be farther away before doing this.

Well, it's my first game. I need to learn :)

59 2/14/2018 12:52:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message George is moving in to attack before you can convert RI and get the militia on your side.

no combat card. to you to play a card or not and roll those bones. thankfully max rating a general can have is their total CU so even if you roll 4-6 with Howe he is capped at 4 battle rating.
58 2/14/2018 12:49:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message we each lose 1 CU (Howe to 4; Greene has no CU left and retreats to Lexington-Concord, MA

all you have to do to capture him is move through his space and you don't have to stop in his sapce if he continues to have no CU.

54 2/6/2018 2:04:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Howe attacks Greene, hopefully saving the honorable citizens of Rhode Island of the crime of disloyalty to the King!
53 2/6/2018 1:52:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message gave Arnold some more troops in case you ahve ideas to attack me.
52 2/6/2018 1:51:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message That is good use of Clinton. he's not mobile but he is a solid commander best used to hold a garrison force in an important blocking city.
51 2/6/2018 1:48:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message glad you are enjoying it. you are doing just fine. i haven't played for several months until now so i'm rusty.
50 2/6/2018 1:43:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Thanks. This is very fun game. I think I am not taking the right decisions - but that's what learning is about :)

Anyway, Clinton and 5 CUs to Wilmington, Delaware, to protect our colony there.
49 2/6/2018 1:35:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message glad you saw the file, ACTS suddenly stopped working.

4-6 they stick
44 2/6/2018 12:59:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message canada goes neutral due to the exception in rules that both fortified ports must be held by one side or its neutral.
43 2/6/2018 12:57:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message my bluff worked! i was sitting on a nasty British event card that i could not afford to let you have so i had to hold it to my last card or close to it.

i will simply use this to remove a British PC with no CU on it adjacent to one of my own.

will decide and post in log then do end of year bookkeeping.
42 2/4/2018 4:13:00 AM Turn 1 British Message I can't not leave you using the Winter Offensive on Delaware, so run out of there :) File upoloaded

39 1/31/2018 12:05:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message never mind. you did all of that in teh follow up log. you are good to go.
38 1/31/2018 12:01:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message everything looks good, had you rolled a 1-3 Cornwallis would have had a general rating of 2 though, not 1.

not a great start for the Americans. you get to draw a new card before you take your impulse.

log is up.
37 1/29/2018 9:55:00 AM Turn 1 British Message At the end, you lose the combat and 2 CUs, I win and lose 1 CU. Can you please kindly check my maths? I've uploaded a file with the battle, hope that everything is OK. If not, we can redo :)

Once that my math is right or we redo, I'll play my move :)

26 1/25/2018 1:18:00 AM Turn 1 British Message British do not want to fight - Used 2 Ops card to flip Delaware and NYC.
25 1/25/2018 1:17:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Well, with regards to what the rest of people of Spain think.... I'd have said that before all that happen before 1-October, a slightly majority of people (at least among the people I spoke with in Madrid, Malaga and Zamora - where my wife is from) would have favor changing the Constitution by an amend to allow the referendum to take place.

That's the main topic that separate a lot of people in Catalonia and the rest of Spain. According to the Constitutional Court - akin to your Supreme Court in the sense that it is the one that do the official interpretation of the Constitution - an amendment is needed to allow Catalonia to have that vote. The rest of Spain believes that law needs to be held up even if we do not like it, where in Catalonia, the latest year there is this feeling that law do not need to be obeyed if most people is against it.

After 1-October I think there is a lot of people who think that the government was stupid, criminal and whatever, but are really also very angry with the Catalan independentism for going ahead and directly disobeying a court order, both passively and actively. So I do not know if such amend to the Constitution would pass right now - I think it would have pass (by slight margin) before 1-October.

So, summary of what I think most people close to me think: Spanish government stupid, criminal, etc. Catalonia government law-breaking gang that laughs on the face of court orders and actively look to do whatever they want - they can't be trusted.

Now, I think that at some point the Spanish Constitution would need to be changed to allow such a referendum and that sit should be held - because it's the only way to get this to a closure. Would this happen? Not with the current national governments or the current Catala government. We need to wait for people with cooler heads to sit in both places. Hopefully this will come sooner than latter.
24 1/25/2018 12:25:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message The Continental Congress is quite nervous. Greene gets activated to come to the defense of the city and the CC.

never mind, Arnold will actually quickly raise an army for himself. back to you.
23 1/25/2018 12:20:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message it was very sad to watch. my friend's grandmother attempted to go to the polls and suffered a severe blow to the head from a policeman. she is over 80 years old. made my blood boil.

do you think Catalonia will ever gain independence? from what I read in several articles, the Spanish central gov't would never allow it no matter how popular the sentiment becomes in Catalonia. what do people outside Catalonia think of it?
22 1/24/2018 8:01:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Sending en-masse police with charging was not the best idea, it was very easy to imagine that people would have been harmed. It was really stupid, even criminal.

The catala government bought the ballot boxes from aliexpress in China. Couldn't the government simply put a intelligence agency to work on that and seize the ship?

Criminally inept, indeed, if not worse.
21 1/24/2018 7:58:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Yes, in general, the quality of the democracy, in many senses, is dimishing. WIth separation of powers do you mean between the courts and the federal government or between the state and federal government?

I live in Madrid, although I am originally from Malaga (south of Spain). Our current government has been criminally inept in his handling of all things related to Catalonia.
20 1/24/2018 3:23:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message indeed they were. sadly their wisdom about divided branches of government has been greatly ignored in our country starting with the early 1900's and has gotten worse with almost every president thereafter.

whereabouts in Spain do you live? I have a friend in Barcelona who had quite the harrowing experience during the gov't crackdown in Catalonia a few months ago.

i went to load the file but it won't let me play as this is a separate computer and i guess i loaded my profile with a different password on this one. will have to do this tomorrow.
19 1/22/2018 6:32:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Thanks a ton for the recommendation, I'll watch it! Yes, I like that part of the history of your country a lot. Your founding fathers were really praiseworthy :)

The British has uploaded its file, as their campaign to save all the loyal citizens of the colonies continues.

18 1/22/2018 5:20:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message I played an event card to make you lose a card.

before you take your turn you need to click the random discard button on your hand window then take your turn as usual.
17 1/22/2018 5:15:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message Sounds like some despicable Tory propaganda to me! Give me liberty or give me death!

Side note, if you are interested in this topic of history I would encourage you to watch the excellent show "Turn" (4 seasons). it is on Netflix, at least here in USA, not sure abotu Spain. all the major characters are real although they do dramatize and take artistic license quite a bit it is still very good.
16 1/19/2018 9:13:00 AM Turn 1 British Message File uplodaded. The British start their long war to protect the loyal citizens of America of their unholy enemy, the Congress.
15 1/19/2018 2:00:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Thanks. I'll play after work
14 1/19/2018 1:51:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message i placed 3 PCs and updated colony control after For the King and then after my PC placement.
13 1/19/2018 1:47:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message normally, I like to go last most of the time as Americans for George Washington's winter offensive ability but on this first turn with so many critical spaces up for grabs, I will go first.
12 1/18/2018 6:02:00 PM Turn 1 British Message Placement done, file uploaded. I decline. You pick who should go first.

Thanks for everything!
11 1/18/2018 1:58:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Thanks. I'll do the placement tonight :)
10 1/17/2018 6:11:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message log is done. I placed 1 PC in each colony and now it is your turn to place 3 anywhere you like as long as they follow the usual British PC placement rules for adjacency (remember all ports are adjacent to each other for you)

Over to you. please let me know if you have any questions.
9 1/17/2018 6:00:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message i just loaded the log and it won't let me draw the American hand. I'm going to re-do the set up since we haven't done anything.
8 1/16/2018 9:46:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Perfect. Thanks a lot for the help. I'll wait until you upload the PC placement as American :)
7 1/15/2018 7:17:00 PM Turn 1 Americans Message Almost exactly right. The British will first either play a campaign card Which I canít stop/preempt and then you for sure go first but it has to be campaign card.

If you donít have a campaign card or do and donít you want to use it yet or even just donít want to comment, say I decline to play campaign card at which point it shifts to the Americans who get to decide which side goes first
6 1/14/2018 1:06:00 PM Turn 1 British Message No prob at all - just wnated to check that I understood rules :)

So you will post another file with your placements, right? And then I will do for the king, draw cards and tell you whether I will go first or second
5 1/14/2018 11:36:00 AM Turn 1 Americans Message Doh, yep. Sorry in my hurry to get going I forgot about American committees and British for the king
4 1/14/2018 4:32:00 AM Turn 1 British Message Thanks for setting this up. One question: before drawing cards and deciding who goes first shouldn't we do the initial PC placement?
