1330 6/28/2018 12:12:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message ok
1329 6/27/2018 7:12:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Yeh what the heck I'll play France it will be nice to have lots of cards for once

1327 6/27/2018 9:38:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message We see if Rob is happy to take France, or Peter wants to swap so he can have the Brits

But you are going to have to play France at some point.

1) France are the best power, but also the hardest to play. Especially psychologically, because by playing France you are sitting down and saying to everyone else at the table "I can beat all of you"

2) Something, something, learn how to beat them by playing them
1326 6/27/2018 9:34:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message John asked me to tell you he really likes the format for selecting sides for heats and semifinals job well done!

>> Thank you

I haven't changed much this year beyond not splitting the player base into "as long as it takes" and "within the time limit"

it was a pain, led to too many 4 player games and most games finish in time anyway
1325 6/27/2018 12:34:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message As will I, so I'll choose Prussia.
1324 6/26/2018 11:19:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message I will be very busy for the next several weeks, so I choose Britain.
1323 6/26/2018 11:18:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Gareth,
John asked me to tell you he really likes the format for selecting sides for heats and semifinals job well done!

1318 6/25/2018 8:00:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Good game Gareth.
Thank you gentlemen, I had fun.
Yes, I would like to play again.
I propose we roll for choice. Gareth, if you roll well you can simply not choose France or Britain.
And we can pre-declare Bruce does not have to be Austria again, so if it comes down to it the second-worst roller might have to accept Austria.
Sound good?
1317 6/25/2018 7:55:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I didn't expect to come back after a terrible T1, but I got the momentum in T2 and that carried into T3
1316 6/25/2018 7:50:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message

Well he rolled a 6 Congratulations to Gareth for a cunning well-played game.

I would like to play Great Britain which I have never had the chance to play in a multi-player game (only two-player)

However I just want to play so if you need to make me Austria or Prussia no worries
1315 6/25/2018 7:38:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Well that was that

Good game.

I would be happy with another if we swap around.

I've been Britain and France, so time for me to be the others.

Bruce should probably get first pick as Austria this time

Attacking further was a backup.

I did get lucky with the Spanish draw, but the Turks were going anyway

Oops, never mind on question number one. I temporarily forgot that Bruce can forbid Gareth passage through Vienna.
1277 6/21/2018 6:30:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Rod,
1.) Are you sure you want to move Bagration that far west?
2.) If so, if you move him via Krakow, you will save 1 CP.
1276 6/20/2018 11:05:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #52: 5 / Crown Prince Bernadotte
Replace Gustavus with a Swedish Unit and Bernadotte or place them in Stockholm if Gustavus is not in play. Sweden is Unaligned. A Neutral playing this card on Turn 3 or later must play it as an event.

1270 6/20/2018 7:50:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message "I tried being diplomatic in messages 1102 and 1199.
It didn't work."

Ha yes you and Britain both wanted me to rush west and not build -- remember that battle wipe out with lopsided dice really plunged me into last place so I do need some keys and a Russia with an extra card is a stronger ally for you

Also as we started this turn I acknowledged our main priority had to be preventing the fall of Prussia


Just to be sure Armistice is over correct ?

Quite right, and I didn't mean to imply selflessness on my part.

It didn't work.

1266 6/20/2018 6:51:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Rod, also, I just realized you might want to spend one CP to move that Fleet into the Black Sea. If Turkey joins the Imperial Camp, you will be very glad you did it.
1265 6/20/2018 6:22:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message

Well that is diplomatic language
1264 6/20/2018 6:07:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Rod,
No, because it would detract from the defense of Berlin.
And considering I saved your rear end this turn by joining the war with Austria a subject neutral, imagine what would have happened to you if Prussia & Turkey were neutral and Wellington was piddling around in Spain or Italy I would really like it if you would help to defend Berlin... from Breslau, for example.
1263 6/20/2018 5:51:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message

1262 6/20/2018 12:48:00 AM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #102: 2 / Duke d'Enghien Affair
No Power may join the Imperial Camp in the next Interphase. All Consuls on an Imperial nation's row of the Diplomatic Track not already in Pact status move one box to the left. If the Consul is in +1 status, it is also flipped to its normal side. Unlike other diplomatic events, this may be played during the first round of 1805.

Void a Maneuver, evasion or interception by any one Fleet or Grand Fleet (even after making/failing an evasion/interception dice roll). Any Maneuver used is expended and that Fleet must pay double for further Maneuvers in this Impulse. A voided evasion does not penalize that Fleet in battle for a failed evasion attempt.

1238 6/17/2018 5:44:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message
I have Crown Prince Bernadotte

and despite the intel that gives Gareth I'll say it
1237 6/17/2018 4:46:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Bruce to respond with Talleyrand (hopefully).

> "Also, if understand the rules right, France isn't at much danger if she's left with 3 or 4 extra cards at the end of the turn, since the first will give her a resource and the others can be used to buy up the Turks."

Yes, that's correct. And, since France was unconcerned about preempting even *before* Spain drew Sultan's Ear, France may very well also have Crown Prince Bernadotte, Royal Wedding, or Talleyrand.
1236 6/17/2018 4:16:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message I have a feeling Spain's other card is something like Irish Revolt, Spithead and Nore, or Kingdom of Naples.

Also, if understand the rules right, France isn't at much danger if she's left with 3 or 4 extra cards at the end of the turn, since the first will give her a resource and the others can be used to buy up the Turks.
1235 6/17/2018 12:07:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Russia cannot respond

I have a feeling Bruce is away from gaming for a bit
1234 6/17/2018 11:58:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Rod,
Yes but in this particular case I don't think order matters, because Talleyrand is the only card that matters at the moment. No other card can save Turkey. If we don't have it, we don't have it.
1233 6/17/2018 11:15:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message

In order of movement so we are waiting on Bruce first ?
1232 6/17/2018 11:11:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message If that was Spains's second draw... :(
