Message from France:
HCS defending. Need 5-6 to score a hit. You autokill the fort with your vast amount of units. It is only about you suffering a loss or not
155 4/23/2018 2:00:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Message You may have breached the wall, but you still have to inflict more hits on the defender - even en empty fort defending on 0 table - to win. So the fort gets to roll. Problem with Montcalm is that the fort has rolled 5-6 both time I assaulted, so we both nflicted one hit. And I have to roll more than the fort, hence no capture
154 4/23/2018 1:20:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Message Hm ok so I played 3 op card for abercomby to siege the fort at HCS (see file 38, after the ambush battle that I won and you retreated, ambercomby was still there). What happened was I played surrender without having anothe card to acviate my leader, thus I took it back and played my smallpox on montecalm and accidentlly moved abercomby back. Thus you still had the fort there. So I rlled on siege table and got a 3 which equals a +1. The value for a fort is 1 so I immediately assult and since no defending units, I take it that I capture it correct? I get 2VP as a result and now it is under construction

If that is correct, why hasn't montecalm captured the fort out west? It's only fortresses that require a siege level of 2 to assault, not forts correct?

Play in place of a roll on the Siege Table. At Louisbourg, you must already have Siege 1 or 2. Capture the fort or fortess intact. Enemy player places defenders at his closest unbesieged fortification.

NOTE: This card was held from the Start turn.

NOTE: The deck will be reshuffled before next turn's cards are dealt.

151 4/23/2018 4:29:00 AM 1758 Early Season France Message BTW: You had fieldworks on your hand. I gues you would have used it when I tried to ambush you.

That is the problem about getting ahead of yourself and rolling like I did. I should have waited patiently and asked: I have Ambush and Fieldwork. Do you have any CC?

Done is done, but it just counts as a reminder (for me at least) to slow down. Because now you got to see the result before choosing to play CC or not...

Rule 4.A.2 about saving a card: If held until the following season, the player must play ALL his cards that season

You saved fieldworks, I saved ambush last time, so none of us can save this time. So go ahead and play :-)

The good thing about this card is that you save a turn and are ready to move on and don't have to waste time to build the fort. And you push out the defenders as well.
127 4/16/2018 8:28:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Message So I believe I did this correct. card states I can capture fort which I did. I get 2 VP as well too right? or is that only when I build it?
126 4/16/2018 8:26:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #6: 3 / Surrender!
Play in place of a roll on the Siege Table. At Louisbourg, you must already have Siege 1 or 2. Capture the fort or fortess intact. Enemy player places defenders at his closest unbesieged fortification.

NOTE: This card was held from the 1757 Late Season turn.

French forces never flinch in the face of danger. It is called Elan and sometimes it leads to bad decisions, but Vaudreuil wants to prove his worth, now that Montcalm is not around to take the honor...

Message from France:
Taking forts is Montcalms speciality, but he didn't quite expect to be called out west. Upon arrival he understands why, though, as the Brits have made quite a defensive and impenetrable line and it clearly takes a man of his ilk to do something about it.
