1955 10/12/2018 5:18:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message I’d be happy to do another. A three player would be my preference.
1954 10/11/2018 6:34:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message I'm out for now at least, I'm maxed out on gaming time. If you play another one after that feel free to keep on the list of interested people.
1953 10/10/2018 7:51:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Gentlemen,
I am ready to start up another game. For a 5th player, I could ask my buddy Dave in Atlanta — if you are OK with a very inexperienced player. (He has played one game last year, one this year, and that's all.)
What do you say?
1952 10/7/2018 8:11:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message I only "knew" Rod — I use the term loosely — for a short time. I met him at WBC in 2017. I played one game with him face-to-face, and two via email. So it is is quite a stretch to say that I "knew" Rod,
However, I can still say that Rod was a source of light and happiness. Rod wanted to learn, and he wanted to be there in the moment with friends. He was slow to anger, and willing to listen (maybe not immediately, but eventually). And he had a playful spirit.
When I heard that Rod passed away, I couldn't remember his face at first so I search the web a bit. I found a good, recent picture of him at the bottom of this web page:
https://www.boardgamers.org/yearbook16/mmw.html
Also, there is a YouTube video called "Inside Baghdad: Rod Coffey" if you want to hear a see a slightly younger Rod Coffey speaking with the interviewer for a few minutes.
I had no idea that Rod had served in the Army (like me), much less that he was a colonel. He certainly didn't wear it on his sleeve. He just seemed like a great guy, and it was a true pleasure and privilege to get to "know" him, however briefly and marginally.
1951 10/2/2018 3:30:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Rod's obituary has been posted on the funeral home's website at
http://www.barrancofuneralhome.com/obituary/rod-coffey
Several people have written notes in the guest book.
1950 10/1/2018 6:55:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message I wasn't sure whether I remember what Rod looks like so I went searching.
There is a picture on the bottom of the page of the 2016 event report for Mr. Madison's War.
https://www.boardgamers.org/yearbook16/mmw.html

Now I remember, I did meet Rod my first year at WBC, 2017. A great guy. I liked him a lot.

Actually, Yusuf was not eligible to intercept because of the 3rd sentence of 10.3
"An Army can attempt interception unless it has failed an interception attempt or fought a battle other than an Overrun during that Impulse."

Also notice the 5th sentence of 10.12
"However, once any intercept attempt from that Duchy fails, all remaining Formations in that Duchy lose intercept capability for that Impulse and are marked accordingly with a “Battle or failed Intercept” marker until the end of that Impulse."

If Napoleon is present, you may commit the Imperial Guard after seeing all other battle dice. Roll four more battle dice. Besides inflicting hits, rally a disrupted French Unit for each "4" rolled by the extra dice. Only Napoleon's presence at some point during the battle is required, not his well-being. RESERVE

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.
