560 1/28/2019 10:28:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message And Turkey is Austria friend.
559 1/28/2019 10:25:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Austria builds/positions

558 1/28/2019 10:20:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Also France gives back Vienna to Austria.
557 1/28/2019 10:02:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message I thought we had agreed you take 3 Br keys in Spain or 2 in Spain and Naples. We do not play events against you and the same for you v. us.


556 1/9/2019 10:12:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message We need to agree to a deal now, no?
555 1/9/2019 10:11:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Metternich killed the Talleyrand event that includes the +1 Peace DR DRM. Britain needed a 5-6. That is moot.
554 1/9/2019 9:55:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message The actual roll was +2 as Talleyrand was played so sadly ( for Payne) he missed by 1
553 1/9/2019 9:50:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message The game goes on.

I will be on the road all but 3 days from tomorrow till Feb 13. Not taking my laptop.

Message from Britain:
Brits will burn to win on a 5-6.

This is the peace roll.
551 1/9/2019 9:22:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message France no burn.

The deal is:
1) I give back Venice
2) I can take 3 British Keys (I'd like to grab Naples instead of the third Spanish Key
3) No events against each other

The three of us need to agree, correct?
550 1/9/2019 9:00:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message No burn
549 1/9/2019 7:30:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Russia up for burn.
548 1/9/2019 7:29:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message my offer is the same as before France may take the 3 Br keys in Spain and return my key in Venice (immediately after the turn starts). This will mean you will be in first at the end of the turn. I offer nothing else. You do not take any other Brit/Russ/Austrian keys - This is a lot.

I thought about spending a card to end the game (=Brit win) but after agonizing it for several days - I will not burn. Russia is up.
547 1/2/2019 3:20:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Pete,
If you have an offer worth considering, then I am all ears. I'm not sure what works for you. What doesn't work for me is giving away my keys so I can reign in Britain. You need to find another way...
546 1/2/2019 3:16:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Two options:
1) Russia switches camps. I help you knock out Austria. You get the Resource, the associate keys plus whatever is ceded. I clobber Britain's Keys. Whoever does better wins.
2) You stay in the Coalition. You attack Turkey and take what you can get. I attack Britain and take what I can get. Austria will be stuck defending its homeland which I will leave generally alone unless he also tries to also grab Turkish Keys in which case I'll attack whole hog.

In either case we do not play events against each other. Personally, I think 1) is your better option, but if Camp switching isn't doing it for you then 2) is worth a try...
545 1/2/2019 11:47:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message Not sure I want to burn a card to end the game. But I certainly won't burn one to stop Steve from having the roll.
France: I need to hear something constructive, that gives Russia a chance to win the game. Sitting idle while you attack Britain doesn't move the needle.
544 1/1/2019 12:45:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Also, Metternich cancels the Talleyrand event so there is no +1 to the Peace DR this turn. Right now Britain wins on a 6...
543 1/1/2019 12:42:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Happy New Year!

I am willing to move against Britain. I could've done some damage last turn, but we couldn't come up with a deal. I am not going to reel Britain in only to have you guys eat my lunch in Italy and Germany. That would lead to a feeding frenzy that I could not possibly win. Therefore, once again, I am open to offers...
542 12/31/2018 10:54:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Also to all HAPPY NEW YEAR
541 12/31/2018 10:53:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Let's have a little discussion here. I proposed something which I consider reasonable. Unless its accepted this game is pointless. So unless France chooses to do a limited move v. Britain I will burn a card to increase the roll for the game to end. Note as I played Tallyrand its already +1. I hope Russia will take the same view and agree to burn a card. I do not mind being 3rd loser - I mind wasting time doing nothing.
540 12/30/2018 6:27:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message No attrition that I see

So its to victory roll?

Britain is +3, France +2, and Russia +1 correct?

If enemies, France and Russia ponder a one-Impule Armistice. If accepted, Russia controls Nystadt and Sveaborg with no Diplomatic Track effects. Russia draws two cards and all Russian Formations and Swedish Forces not in their Home Duchies Regroup. If not accepted or apllicable, this event is 6 CPs for the nation that played it and remains in the game.

520 12/5/2018 12:06:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message None of us can win if I don't reel in Britain. If I don't have to use my cards to help Russia this turn I can start working on Britain this turn...
519 12/4/2018 7:53:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message George you will note Mon. Pleva did promise to not take other Austrian keys. All his proposals involve - as you noted - one of the Steve's winning. He needs to propose to take on Britain.
518 12/2/2018 10:25:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message George,
You could send Kutuzov back toward Russia. I could then drive towards you. I would promise not to take Vienna. If you are short of Russia I should be able to move on you with an even force and you could evade back to Russia. That would make a camp switch more palatable and the Austrians would not be able to defend their associate keys...

514 11/2/2018 4:04:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message France:
I'm in the same bind Pete expresses. Right now, I see Steve winning -- just not sure which one -- so a change is worth considering.
If I were to move to Ratisbon, which I am seriously considering, Austria would be likely to defend the associate keys and then be forced to surrender. It's best move is likely to submit to France (which I assume will have to most forces in Austria). And I still don't get anything out of the bargain. Any suggestions that nets Russia anything?
513 11/2/2018 3:14:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #101: 5 / The Milan Decree
Gain CPs equal to a die roll. If France controls Rotterdam, place an available French Squadron there under a Naval Build marker and remove this card from the game. A Neutral Proxy will play this event only if France controls Rotterdam.

Message from Austria:
sorry thought I had moved. Build 2 SPs in Vienna, Russia is up.
512 11/2/2018 3:13:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Pleva,

I can not see a way for either George or I to work for you which will not give you the game.
511 10/25/2018 2:32:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message George,
I have trouble seeing a way for Pete and I to work together or the three of us working together. However, I think there is a path for the two of us. You join the Imperial camp next turn and I reign in the British holdings while you and I conquer Austria. You can grab Lublin and Krakow plus whatever the conquest roll gives you. That is a meaty haul counting the Resource. If you set it up this turn the impact will be minimal. I'd take a 50/50% chance to win under that kind of agreement. Otherwise, we have no shot.

Pete,
If you have a better offer than George can give me, I am all ears. I tried to broker a 3 way deal that you kept saying no to. I think that path is behind us...
510 10/25/2018 2:11:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message Steve:
I don't see a way out of this impasse. Right now, I don't know what you want. We've given you a truce, which does not improve our position. But I haven't seen any reasonable suggestion that improves my chance of winning -- they all help yours significantly, which means I'm trading one Steve for another. Joining the French doesn't help either. Even if I move my army to Ratisbon, it's totally out of position to move on Turkey in any meaningful way. Control of Prussia would have allowed regroup, but that's not in the cards, so to speak.
509 10/25/2018 11:14:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I have a couple of cards to mess with Britain. I will only play them that way if we have a deal in place. You guys still playing for "not first"? :-)

Not wholly rejecting your proposal, but I really don't see how I gain.
485 10/12/2018 4:46:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message George,
If you want to cut a deal in the interphase we should start setting it up now to keep you from having dudes go to Regroup. I will promise not to attack Austria if you want to head east. If you want to head west to Ratisbon, we can do that late in the turn. If you would rather attack Turkey to maybe score a Key or two, I would be fine with that. Similarly, I would promise not to attack Austria unless Austria also tries to grab Turkish Keys. Clearly, keeping on this path will get us nowhere. I am willing to take a 50% chance of winning by cutting a deal. Canceling each other's CP plays is not productive. I will promise not to grab Prussia if we have a deal in principle. Thoughts?
