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.

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?

483 10/12/2018 4:34:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #19: 2 / Split Squadrons

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.

The Russian (even if without cards) selects a Russian Home Duchy to suffer Attrition (excluding any Fortress Flag) and gains two CPs for immediate use in that Impulse for each Attrition loss inflicted. Repeat at the start of each Russian scheduled Impulse. A Neutral Proxy will not play this event unless Russia contains enemy Foces.

This nation places one of its Armies on this card. Anytime during its next Impulse (whether Scheduled, Preemptive, or Pass), it returns to any space it could deploy to from its Capital. It is then able to move by normal CP expenditure. The Army moved must be capable of deployment to its Capital as if this were an Interphase without being Convoyed.

On to Prussia
424 9/14/2018 4:43:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message seeing as how we are dancing around and Pleva keeps asking for IMHO too much here is an easy analysis of my view:
Situation if France gets a net of 2 keys

France
Keys +2
Ally Denmark +1
Probably ally Turkey +1
Get 7 cards next turn.
Net 4 VPs = the roll

Britain
Loses 3 keys which puts him at even
No allies
1 resource
Net 1
Russia
Assuming +1 key from Turkey
Munich
Net 2

Austria
Recovers Venice
+1 from Turkey
Net 1
Will get a resource from extra key after victory roll.

Possible variance
Russia or Austria conquers Turkey (very unlikely IMHO) considering the current positions.
This could be swing of an additional +2 for Russia or Austria and -1 for France

Thus if France gets anything more than a net of 2 they will
1) get 8 cards next turn and
2) be at +5 and out of reach for any of us.
