It's done let's move on
1278 6/21/2018 6:35:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Rod,
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.

Message from Russia:
Well you guys might not like this either but.... Lannes can retake keys

Pete got your point on Black Sea but ....

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 ?

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.

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.

> "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.

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.

Thanks for everyone's indulgence on that conversation, Dan good point about the Spanish card but I think we need more combat power west --

Bruce -- not planning on keeping all these keys but we have to reduce the number of French keys

Well, that's what I kept saying earlier; he could have been there by now and Russia could have an extra key at that. If Prussia is not conquered and we play nice with Austria, France is not likely to be able to hold up against all 4 of us for long.

As for DWTP, Lisbon would keep the Spanish from drawing an extra card which could be very useful. And I can guarantee I'll be burning a card yet again at the end of the turn.

I that case I would vote for Breslau. I think the odds of holding Berlin are actually pretty good at this point since Scarce Supplies and Rally! have already been played. There's a very large number of units in Berlin if you count the interceptors. Prussia cannot be conquered if Berlin holds.

No, Polish Uprising has not been played. Because of that (and Lannes), I would leave Kutusov right where he is. But I think you can afford to move Bagration. You might wan to ask Daniel if he still has something to beef up Bagration first.

I vote for Lisbon because that would guarantee that Spain cannot get 2 more cards only 1.
Since Gareth seems to be in no hurry whatsoever to play his stack of cards, I am beginning to think that he has either (1) a few battle cards, in which case we want him having as few impulses as possible, or (2) one or more of Talleyrand / Royal Wedding / Sultan's Ear (which would be tough luck for us).
1189 6/16/2018 8:47:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message France says: Bruce might not like that if he is coming back in the coalition...

I think Bruce and I can have a very friendly negotiation on that. Bruce in return for some specific support from me I would ask you let me retain one key so you have a stronger Russian partner. For example if we can manage to retake Prague (and not flag it for ourselves) you would still not be down a card.
1188 6/16/2018 8:43:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message I really do need to retain either Lublin or Krakow as one more key gives me another card next hand.

1187 6/16/2018 8:42:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message Sorry changed my mind

France has too many cards leaving the threat to Berlin too great for me to use Down with the Prince as event.

Ok right now with Hanover taken the conquest roll if he takes Berlin is 6 correct?

He may try to take one or more keys to improve those odds before taking Berlin so I see little use in me just rushing to Berlin

Gareth was absolutely correct that I am chary of entering Prussia only to wind up in regroup but can also see the wisdom of reinforcing Breslau or even Leipzig though I really do need to retain either Lublin or Krakow as one more key gives me another card next hand.

A regrouped Russian army could lead to the fall of Russia next turn so those are my considerations which us coalition governments can discuss.

As long as no one minds playing this way i.e. all this coalition discussion before a move. But we are at the point of diminishing options as we have so few cards. So I understand it is important to get into position to use interception to move.

Peter et al has the card that places French forces in Warsaw already been played ?
