Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
26 10/14/2018 1:10:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Message No combat card. I donít have access to the game while away, so you may go ahead and resolve.

25 10/12/2018 1:33:00 PM 1620-1621 Catholic Play Strategy card as Operations #4: 2 / Spinola Besieges Breda
Spinola Recalled to Netherlands card must have been played previously. Must be first Catholic card play of turn if played as Event. +1 to Dutch War Track. If no Protestant army enters United Provinces this turn, +1 to Dutch War Track at end of turn.

Message from Catholic:
activate Bucquay and his mob to attack hungarians in pressberg
24 9/29/2018 12:11:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Message So I'll use the same card to activate Mansfeld, who will move as follows.

MP 1: Mansfeld moves alone to Budweis.

MP 2: He picks up the 2 leaders and 5 units there, and returns with them to Pilsen, where he drops them off.

MP 3: He moves with an army of 7 Mercs to Prague.

MP 4-5: He moves with all 7 Mercs to Dresden, where he overruns and eliminates the Saxon Militia unit there, and converts the city. Place a P1 marker.

MP 6: He moves with his army to Torgau. Place a P1 marker.

MP 7: He moves with his entire force of 7 Mercs to Leipzig. [Leaders have a movement allowance of 8, per Rule 10.12.]

You have the option to fight or withdraw inside the fortress.

23 9/29/2018 1:26:00 AM 1620-1621 Protestant Message Actually, after refreshing my memory about how the retreat rules work in this game, I would like reconsider that move, because the rules will not allow me to retreat to Znaim or Graz if I should lose a battle at Vienna.

Accordingly, if you have no objection, I would like to redo that move.

22 9/29/2018 12:28:00 AM 1620-1621 Protestant Message Then that is the end of the move. I can mask Vienna, but not besiege it. Move file to come.

21 9/28/2018 3:39:00 PM 1620-1621 Catholic Message I will retreat into fortress
20 9/26/2018 11:50:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Play Strategy card as Operations #4: 2 / New Leader
Deploy Frederick of Baden and 2 Protestant Militia in Baden. Baden enters game as Protestant area.

Message from Protestant:
I'll play this to activate Mansfeld, who will move with Anhalt and his 6 Mercs as follows:

MP 1: Budweis; pick up 1 Merc.

MP 2: Linz.

MP 3: Convert Linz to Protestant (easy to do, as historically there were lots of Protestants in upper Austria).

MP 4: Passau; pillage the area thoroughly (place P2 marker).

MP 5: Back to Linz.

MP 6: Advance with entire force upon Vienna.

Please advise whether you will stand and fight, or retreat within the fortifications.
19 9/24/2018 3:39:00 PM 1620-1621 Catholic Message 1/2 step militia

13 9/24/2018 3:19:00 PM 1620-1621 Catholic Play Strategy card as Recruitment #22: 3 / Electoral Meeting
If Catholic player controls at least 4, but not all Electors, +1 VP. If all Electors, +3 VPs.

Message from Catholic:
I want to use this card for recruitment
12 9/23/2018 7:04:00 PM 1620-1621 Catholic Message in addition, i have little or no knowledge of the conflict
11 9/23/2018 7:03:00 PM 1620-1621 Catholic Message sorry for delay. imho, this game is much more involved than POG, or some of the others
10 9/18/2018 11:47:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Message Hard not to be satisfied with that.

The results are:

Mansfeld - 2 steps Mercs
Thurn - 2 steps Mercs
BG - 3 steps Mils

I'll take f/s Mercs with Mansfeld and Thurn, and 1 f/s Mil and 1 u/s Mil with BG. A move file will come by email. I'll also add an Imperial Merc for you at Vienna, which we can treat as your 4th Veteran.

9 9/18/2018 11:42:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Die roll request Request: 10-sided die x 3


Message from Protestant:
Actually, let's make that second one Thurn for Mercs in Pilsen.

Recruiting die roll:

Mansfeld - Mercs
Thurn - Mercs
Bethlen Gabor - Militia

8 9/18/2018 11:25:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Play Strategy card as Recruitment #1: 3 / Val Telline Passes Closed
Val Telline Passes must be Open to play this event. Duke of Savoy closes Val Telline passes. No Spanish Aid to Catholic player until Val Telline Passes Open Card is played.

Message from Protestant:
My apologies for the delay, Barry. I had several sentencing briefs and then hearings to do in a long-running case.

I'll play this card to recruit. Mansfeld in Pilsen twice for Mercs, and Bethlen Gabor in Pressburg for Militia.
7 9/6/2018 10:36:00 AM 1620-1621 Catholic Message ready to go.
6 8/7/2018 9:39:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Change Protestant player Protestant player changed from Jefferson Gray to Jefferson Gray
5 8/1/2018 10:11:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Message I should note one thing with regard to Rule 19.7, the "Tilly as Dynamic Leader" optional rule. It allows you to stack Bavarian and Imperial units together in the early going, but only at the cost of keeping Wallenstein out of the game. So there's a trade-off there for the Catholic player. Once you bring in Wallenstein, then Imperial and Bavarian troops can't stack together again until the "Elector Maximilian" card is played.

4 8/1/2018 7:25:00 PM 1620-1621 Protestant Message We need to determine which optional rules to use. I suggest the following:

19.1 (Victory Determination)

19.2a (Stronger Imperial Set-up) ((use a Merc unit to represent the additional Imperial Vet @ Wien)

19.2b (New French Leader Guebriant)

19.3 (LOC established during Action Phase)

19.6 (Wallenstein's Ambition)

19.7 (Tilly as Dynamic Leader)

19.9 (Old Corps French Infantry Regiments)

19.10 (Richelieu Becomes Chief Minister of France)

19.11 (Wallenstein's Enemies)

Let me know if you have any questions about these.
