336 6/20/2018 8:15:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Message I'm OK with you DOW'g Turkey. But then Austria gets nothing. Don't see how this works.
My point was, under your original offer, Russia picked up Bucharest and that was it. My comment was that this seemed a little light and that instead, I would take nothing, but play on the diplomatic track.
335 6/12/2018 9:33:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message "My alternative would be that I skip Turkey, but can play into Prussia w/o opposition."

What do you mean by this? Politically? Or militarily?

What about me declaring war on Turkey? That would give it to Russia, correct? Is there a deal centered around this? We have to find a deal or Britain will win...
334 6/12/2018 5:01:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Steve:
I said before I was open to not prosecuting the war for the moment. Your proposal was in the ballpark, but perhaps a little too favorable to France. I net one key. Meanwhile, France get 1 VP for Turkey and whatever keys you can grab in Spain/Naples. I end up farther behind than I am now.
And it's not clear that I would have the strength to conquer Turkey. No troops in the area. Bags +6 has a lot of work to do. Yes, I could move Kutusov, but that totally messes up leader deployment for Turn 3.
I'd also point out that conquering Turkey would limit Austria to only one key gained.
My alternative would be that I skip Turkey, but can play into Prussia w/o opposition.
333 6/12/2018 3:23:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Havent heard from Russia since April. Im thinking he has dropped out.
332 6/12/2018 3:18:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Waiting for Russia/George to weigh in. I think this game is wide open if the right decisions are made...
331 6/12/2018 3:07:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Shall we abandon this?

Call it a decisive Brit victory and get on with summer?
330 5/24/2018 7:51:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message France is up for reinforcements/deployments. Pleva is waiting for George to weigh in on discussions. Also I am fine with George conquering Turkey rather than me so long as I get a key after George does (other than Belgrade which as an associate duchy I would keep. If George conquers Turkey and he gets 3 keys he will get 2 and give one to me. I am just not interested in giving the Turkey VP and Turkeys cards to France :-)
329 5/23/2018 6:32:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Back from travels.

France is up for interphase?
328 5/6/2018 10:02:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message well your offer sets you up for a romp as the French. My point is to balance things out a bit. A couple of notes.

1) Turkey is not guaranteed to surrender - its -2 to the dice so even if the Coalition has 4 keys, including Constantinople
2) If you pick up net 2 keys (3 Sp, -Munich) + Turkey and Denmark. As I see it here is the standing at the victory phase of the turn
4 France
3 Britain (Sweden+ 2 resources)
2 Russia (2 keys)
2 Austria

Not sure how that sets me up for victory. Your offer giving you shots at 6 Br/Sp keys would almost guarantee you a victory. So you are up or we are all at war with France and Britain wins (probably)
327 5/6/2018 12:25:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Let's see if I have this straight. According to your offer:
1) I reel in Britain's lead so you have a clear shot at winning where you had no shot otherwise.
2) Austria and Russia are lined up to get a Resource each turn.
3) Austria or Russia gets a Resource for conquering Turkey.
4) France gets an extra card.

Really? That's your offer?
326 5/5/2018 2:57:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Im on the road till the 22nd.
325 5/4/2018 9:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Sorry a little behind.

France proposes:
1) Austria gets Venice back
2) Austria DoWs Turkey and takes Belgrade and Sofia
3) Russia takes Bucharest
4) France-Austria-Russia play no events against the others
5) Nobody moves Prussia
6) France will go after British keys in Spain and Italy. If I am very successful then I will let you guys go after extra keys so that it is relatively even. Russia should get the first extra key so that Russia can get a Resource as Austria will.

This is a little excessive particularly as Britain is my ally. How about the following changes:

1) France takes only the 3 Spanish keys that Britain has. No taking of British keys
2) Britain gets Sweden - no one interferes with Britains taking it.
3) No one does anything with Prussia.
4) I will DoW Turkey but
a) Russia gets Bucharest
b) Austria gets Sofia and Belgrade
c) Austria or Russia gets to conquer Turkey (I have no interest in seeing Turkey behind us. i.e. I want to see Turkey as a subject neutral at the end of the turn.
5) Russia gets to keep Munich.

I do not wish to see Britain screwed - he should be in a better position than start as everyone else will be.

324 4/30/2018 11:51:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Okay, how about this:
1) Austria gets Venice back
2) Austria DoWs Turkey and takes Belgrade and Sofia
3) Russia takes Bucharest
4) France-Austria-Russia play no events against the others
5) Nobody moves Prussia
6) France will go after British keys in Spain and Italy. If I am very successful then I will let you guys go after extra keys so that it is relatively even. Russia should get the first extra key so that Russia can get a Resource as Austria will.
323 4/30/2018 8:58:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message To France - you have 6 potential Br keys available. I think you have to make a proposal rather than us. How much do you intend to take from Britain and what do you wish to give up for some sort of restraint on your eastern border.

Back from Europe and then had to go to the beach for misc. issues almost immediately.
322 4/25/2018 11:14:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Yes, some sort of non-aggression/event/pact agreement...
321 4/25/2018 9:50:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Message Are you looking for an agreement not to advance further. I might be OK with that
320 4/23/2018 7:02:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Clearly, there are no camp changes now. If you want me to check Britain, then I would like some sort of deal. I would like some sort of agreement before I deploy. Otherwise, I will just stuff up Russia and Austria the best I can. That wouldn't bring you two any closer to winning. Proposals?
319 4/23/2018 6:54:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Not sure what France is proposing, if anything. He seems to have wanted me or Russia to join him, but perhaps he is proposing some sort of temporary peace - conditions unknown. Will wait for him but I for one am not interested in a peace where he is holding one of my keys.
318 4/23/2018 3:25:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message What is France proposing as an agreement? Essentially non-aggression pact? Or something else.
317 4/21/2018 4:25:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message I was on the horns of a dilemma. If I we all fought France, Britain probably wins (but France could pull it out). If I (or Russia) joined France, France will definitely win. So for the moment, I was forced to stay in my current alliance. At any rate that phase is over. Still perhaps we can work out an agreement on Italy. I would like Venice back and Milan. France can go after the British possessions in Italy and Spain. I have a feeling Russia will be satisfied with perhaps 1 more key. But there is the issue of Prussia/Turkey/Sweden. Prussia, particularly, can upset any balance between the powers.
316 4/20/2018 12:04:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message So you think I can take back Spain and hold back A/R when I'll have 8 cards to your combined 16 (plus two British resources)? I don't see that happening...
315 4/20/2018 6:01:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message And I have been up since 3 AM - 9 AM Munich time - ARGH
314 4/20/2018 6:00:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message To France, as I see it, you are still in the drivers seat. The distribution of duchies could have been a game winner for Britain if only 3 were given up, but you currently have a series of "breadcrumbs all the way to Gibraltar. And worse Nappy is right there to grab them. All you need to do is hold A/R back while he overruns all those Britain (vice Spanish) Duchies. Inasmuch as the British army is and will be clearly inadequate to defend them I expect you will easily pick up 3 Sp and perhaps 2 British duchies in Spain for a very small expenditure of CPs (those fortresses do not even need to be flagged and Nappy has 14 dice v. them). So I must decline joining the Imperial camp at this time - I expect Soult to be joining the French forces on the border to halt any A/R advance. Not a permanent position, just this turn though.
313 4/19/2018 11:43:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Before France does its Interphase, I'm asking if there is going to be any agreement with Austria and Russia? If not, then I think you are playing for 2nd...
312 4/19/2018 11:42:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Denmark builds 1u (now 6u)

Deploy 2u from Copenhagen to Christiania

Christiania 3u
Copenhagen 4u

311 4/19/2018 11:39:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Prussia builds 4u (now Bulow + 8.5u)

Turks build 2u (now Yusuf + 7u)

Spain regroups 3u plus CP marker (now 3.5u)

Sweden builds 1u in Stockholm (now Gus + 3.5u)
310 4/19/2018 7:28:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message No DOW camp change, etc. - back on line and in the USA.

So how about the French doing the minors reinforcements/deployments and the French now.
309 4/18/2018 1:32:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message No DOW
And switching camps is not sufficiently enticing. I don't see what Russia gets out of it, other than regrouping Kutusov's army.
308 4/18/2018 12:53:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Russia is up for DoW/Camp Change

Note that I will be on the road from tomorrow (4/19) through Monday (4/23)
307 4/15/2018 12:36:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message No DoW here.

To Austria for DoW/camp change.
306 4/15/2018 12:16:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message No DoW here...

To France for DoWs.
302 4/12/2018 2:32:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message I'll burn.
301 4/12/2018 11:26:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message If I have to fight all three of you next turn then Austria and Russia are playing for second place. Therefore, I hope that Russia will listen to reason. That has nothing to do with burning a card or not...
300 4/12/2018 7:10:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message No burn.

299 4/12/2018 12:33:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Payne if you agree to not burn I agree to your proposition. I assume George can burn so the game can be guaranteed to continue and I would be delighted to see Moore in Italy

To George I hope you can be convinced to burn as you have be fitted with Munich and will end up at the same card state as the game start

To both France is still a force capable of overwhelming all of us so we do need to work together

To Payne- thx for finding the rule on subject/conquered/neutral minors. It’s kind of hard to do with my little IPhone 5 and intermittent internet connection/time. This will end on the 19th
298 4/11/2018 4:45:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message France is trying to drive a wedge between us.

I will agree to not burn to keep the alliance strong.

My keys in Spain will fall quickly if France sends Nappy there. But if he does you should have the upper hand elsewhere. If he sends a lesser general to Spain I can get Welly there to oppose him.

Meanwhile I can send Moore to Italy to further take pressure off Austria.

Just let me know that we are in this together and I will not burn.
297 4/11/2018 3:35:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message You guys created the problem so I think it is up to you two to burn. I am willing to call a cease fire for the next turn assuming you play no events next turn while I deal with the British...
296 4/11/2018 2:41:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message It was my hope that France and Russia if necessary would burn. France because he has more cards and suddenly a lot of easy to reach Br keys. Russia has an additional card. I am down a key. I would hate the game to end so quickly as I do not believe anyone has a lock on victory and we have not even really fought battles. So I was hoping that you Mr Pleva might consider a burn
295 4/11/2018 2:13:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Don't see any attrition.

Brits have the roll.
Card changes:
Britain +1
Russia +1
Spain -1
Others unchanged

No burn from France

If a Proxy is conquered, it becomes
Unaligned and its Consul cannot be moved, by CP expenditure or event, on the Diplomatic Track until the Interphase of the next Turn.
291 4/11/2018 12:27:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message I checked the rules quickly and it appears to me that the diplomatic track is in play. The only prohibition I saw was that the conqueror and its allies can't declare war until after the following Interphase. Anyone else read it differently?
290 4/11/2018 12:05:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message I haven't found anything regarding the dippy track for subject. Wirral minors.
Mr Pleva said Spain went to unaligned. Must it stay there? If so - till when?
289 4/11/2018 10:00:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message I thought Spain had to be a subject neutral so can Brit make them a friend?

Message from Austria:
Well the games complexiom suddenly changed DRAMATICALLY.

270 4/9/2018 1:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message My thought as well.
269 4/9/2018 1:41:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Sounds good Pete.
I have 2 cards and expect to need 2 turns to play them. So barring a change in card count Russia can burn the resource after my next play.
268 4/9/2018 1:15:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message The two of you (Brit and Russia) are in control but it woul be good if it can be set up so Russia can play the last card as I believe absent some real change of things that France will be rolling for the win. So we should be able to see that he does not get a roll
267 4/9/2018 9:20:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Thank you George. So the on line manifest is correct. Good to know.

So Brits are done and Austria has played Mud.

I assume that play stands and it's to Russia for resource decision.
266 4/9/2018 8:07:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Message That includes Emperor Commands. It's not listed as a + card.
265 4/9/2018 8:06:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Message Steve:
Just went through the entire deck. No + cards in the second edition -- only the reserves. This is consistent with the online manifest that I have.
264 4/9/2018 7:16:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message So here is the issue.

ACTS shows some non reserve cards as plus.

The on line card manifest shows no non reserve plus cards.

I'm not sure that either is correct - but I have only the first edition game so cannot confirm either way. It's important for my play to know for sure if there are any other plus cards.
263 4/9/2018 3:06:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Until Steve gets whatever info he needs

260 4/8/2018 5:51:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message I was hoping to get a response on the +card question before Pete played.

I have conflicting info about another card.

Maybe Pete's play should wait until this is confirmed
256 4/8/2018 2:36:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Snow continues
