Message from Austria:
Henry correctly sussed that I had this card but I could still finesse with it twice."

Nicely done. It didn't occur to me that it could be used as a repeated threat.

273 7/18/2018 9:55:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Turkey: Play Strategy card as Operations #24: 4 / March to the Guns
A non-neutral Formation of your choice adjacent to a battle moves to the contested space. This additional Formation joining the battle could trigger attrition/terrain penalties.

Message from Austria:
Henry correctly sussed that I had this card but I could still finesse with it twice. Nice card...amongst the many I've had this turn.

1-4: Convoy Yusuf + 4 from Constantinople via Aegean Sea - Ionian Sea - Adriatic Sea to Venice.

267 7/18/2018 7:49:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #901: 6 / Hussars and Grenzers
Only Austrian flages can be placed in Austria by CP expenditure until the next scheduled Austrian Impulse. Until then, all Austrian interceptions and evasions succeed - including one failed just prior to the play of this event. Any CP expenditure for a flag placement rejected by the play of this event is forfiet. RESERVE

266 7/18/2018 7:45:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Yeah, that's what I thought. I don't have a copy anymore and the Cyberboard mod doesn't have that note.
265 7/18/2018 7:35:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message It says "1807" on his leader counter.

A nation of your choice may use three naval maneuvers now. Double the number of dice of a Fortress Port as long as a friendly Squadron controls that Zone. Play in response to a siege resolution only adds dice, not changes them. Retain faceup beneath the controlling Squadron and discard when the conditions are no longer met.

Message from Britain:
I'll go ahead and take a swing at Rome.

If Napoleon is present, you may commit the Imperial Guard after seeing all other battle dice. Roll four more battle dice.

10.2
"An entire Army Group attempts evasion just once and must evade to the same Duchy without altering the composition of that Army Group."

And also (although it didn't matter in this case since you rolled a 7), you are supposed to pre-declare which duchy you are evading to, because in some cases (for example across a Pass) the number needed will be different.
215 7/14/2018 12:14:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Yep, Naples. Just thinking ahead I guess.

182 7/12/2018 5:39:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message I know I can create a grand fleet. My question to my ally was whether we wanted to. Two or more stacks provide multiple interception attempts although if battles occur theyll be split.
181 7/12/2018 5:30:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message 13.21 MOVEMENT: A Grand Fleet moves and Patrols as a combined force paying extra Maneuvers for each Fleet therein like an Army Group pays extra CPs for each Army (9.7). Just as Minor Nations cannot move a multinational Army Group, a Minor Nation may not command a Grand Fleet. A Fleet may exit a Grand Fleet, and co-exist in the same Zone if desired (although all Squadrons of the same nation and its Pact Minor Allies in the same Zone or Port always form one Fleet), during its own Impulse. A Grand Fleet gains the interception/evasion modifier (13.36) only if it is composed of more than 50% French or British Squadrons and is also commanded by either Britain or France. In combat, a Grand Fleet throws dice equal to the sum of its respective Squadrons (13.4).

Russia
you can join the Swedish fleet
