1868 9/21/2018 1:34:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message Pretty sure I'm extending my move with a + play but I need to look over the board again. I will likely get a chance this afternoon. If not, it will happen tonight.
1867 9/21/2018 8:39:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message Bruce, OK.
I was going to ask you that, if Napoleon heads north. Speeding game play is a good deed which should be appreciated, not punished.

Message from Prussia:
Ok so at this point I've only spent 2 CP so far. Just FWIW, technically you don't play it on my army, you play it on Soult's army and he sends out raids to all his enemies in all adjacent spaces, which happens to only be the big stack in Brussels.

And per 6.17 I can distribute them however I want since units don't have to split evenly like in battle losses, and "consent of the owner" of the Turks is also me.

Losing something for every 6....
1861 9/19/2018 7:51:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message > "When Blucher et al enters Brussels I play cavalry raids against his stack"

1860 9/19/2018 7:12:00 PM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #59: 3 / Cavalry Raids
Choose any one friendly Army (not necessarily your own). All enemy Forces adjacent to that Army suffer Attrition (except Fortress Flags and those in battle). Unoccupied enemy Duchies adjacent to that Army also check for Attrition and are flagged by that Army if they fail. Voided by Form Square.

Message from France:

1858 9/19/2018 4:48:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Prussia: Play Strategy card as Operations #25: 5 / Panic!
The loser of any battle suffers Attrition to all surviving (including disrupted) Units/leaders prior to any rout resolution. Any Attrition losses suffered inflicted are assessed first to non-disrupted Units/leaders and contribute to possible rout conditions. This event can be voided by play of the Rally or Rear Guard events prior to the Attrition roll.

1857 9/19/2018 4:44:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message re: "Coasting to 2nd place" ... Russia has 3 cards to pass you up, and he can probably earn a free VP next turn with his Reserve as well. And the Spanish move to Rodrigo and recent Austrian builds are suspicious as well.

I think it's time I cut the Gordian Knot.

1849 9/18/2018 12:22:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #44: 3 / Fleet in Irons
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.

I think France is going down even if we don't hang together and so trying to keep the score even isn't really necessary.
1813 9/14/2018 3:31:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Daniel,
All correct.
I will resurrect the 1 wrongly-killed Russian unit, now Kutusov+6.
1812 9/14/2018 2:11:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message Actually no loot, leader was eliminate but it was still not a rout.

So in the end, Kutuzov/6 moves to Milan, Davout bites the dust inflicting no losses in return, and then Kutzov/6 flag Milan and Genoa?
1811 9/14/2018 2:09:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message That also means Russia gets to roll for loot, and France rolled 1 too many dice and thus Russia doesn't take the hit.
1810 9/14/2018 12:12:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message Yes. Genoa. Done.
1809 9/14/2018 12:06:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Bruce,
