Message from France:
Here is the all important Conquest Roll. France needs a 2 or higher to win the game.

==============

5.82 AUTOMATIC PEACE: Regardless of the Peace die roll or the game Turn, the game ends ... at the end of ... any Conquest phase (5.7) in which either Britain or Russia is a Subject Neutral and France has six or more points.

==============
The Conquest die roll is modified as follows:

-1 Britain
+1 for each Key lost (5)

So France needs a 2 or higher on a 1d6 [6, +1 Britain, -5 lost keys] to conquer Britain.

==============

525 12/13/2018 9:16:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message No naval builds, so we move onto the all-important Conquest Phase.
524 12/13/2018 9:15:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message ...and France removes that disgusting British flag from Rom.
523 12/13/2018 9:12:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message France loses 1 unit in London, but then gains a flag.
France loses 1 unit in Munster (because their attrition is halved), but then gains a flag.
Spain loses 1 unit in Gibraltar.
Austria loses 1 unit in Munich.
Russia doesn't lose any units and gains a flag in Munich.

Message from France:
There is no strategic value of Britain attempting to evade (not to mention the London unit stood their ground against greater odds), so I will roll for the battle without consulting Britain in order to save time. (You can chastise me later if I was wrong in doing so!) The battle is 9 dice France versus 5 Britain.

Here is France's attack.
508 12/13/2018 8:31:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #904: 5 / Napoleon
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

Message from France:
I believe that is the end of Prussia's turn. (Kutuzov moved 2 spaces and got eliminated. Russia flagged Linz. Then they moved two armies into Munich for a total of 5 CPs.)

We play this for 5 CPs. Massena +3 move from Venice to Romagna and pick up a unit, Massena +4 move to Tuscany and pick up a unit, Massena +5 attack Rome.
507 12/13/2018 8:19:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message We each lose one unit (Russia needs to declare if they lose a Russian or Austrian unit). Horrors of horrors, Russia wins the battle! We retreat to Wurttemberg.

A leader of your choice is given two more Units of its nationality - even during battle. The added Units may exceed the Commander's Command Rating even if it is moved into the battle. Afterwards those Units would be subject to normal command restrictions. Can be played even AFTER seeing all battle dice for two extra die rolls in that battle.

Message from Russia:
kutuzov +1 move to franche comte and then champagne
497 12/13/2018 11:21:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message 5.82 AUTOMATIC PEACE: Regardless of the Peace die roll or the game Turn, the game ends ... at the end of ... any Conquest phase (5.7) in which either Britain or Russia is a Subject Neutral and France has six or more points.

==============

15.1 CONQUEST: A nation is conquered if ... its Capital is enemy Controlled and a mandatory Conquest die roll greater than or equal to “6” is made. The Conquest die roll is modified as follows:

-1 Britain
+1 for each Key lost from its initial inventory (4 once London becomes flagged as French)

So as it currently stands, France would need a 3 or higher on a 1d6 [6, +1 Britain, -4 lost keys] to conquer Britain.

==============

France would have +4 keys after London fell, which equates to +4 victory points and they would also have +2 victory points for their 2 pacts. So if the current turn were to end without Russia and France's upcoming card plays, then France essentially would win the game if they rolled a 3-6 on a conquest roll.

==============

Note the above is the auto victory. The Peace die roll would follow that, which would give France another chance to win the game depending how many nations burn cards to affect the roll. However if we got past all of that, then I fear it would be all downhill for France...
496 12/13/2018 10:41:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message William
If possible lay out the VP situation. From what I understand Russia is our last and only hope. I also understand that France still has 2 cards to play and will probably win an auto victory.
495 12/13/2018 10:03:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Austria's turn is finished. (Played a 3 CP card. Used 1 CP moving from Prague to Vienna, and then used 2 CPs moving the Grand Army from Vienna to Linz.)

Therefore, it is now Russia's turn.
494 12/13/2018 9:44:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I verified that I did indeed need an 8, so the unit in Linz successfully evaded to Munich.
493 12/13/2018 7:59:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Actually I think that was successful after checking the rules, as there isn't a penalty for regarding across rough terrain. However please confirm this yourself, just in case I might be misreading it or forgetting something.

The Russian (even if without cards) selects a Russian Home Duchy to suffer Attrition (excluding any Fortress Flag) and gains two CPs for immediate use in that Impulse for each Attrition loss inflicted. Repeat at the start of each Russian scheduled Impulse. A Neutral Proxy will not play this event unless Russia contains enemy Foces.

So if you want to attack Hannover from Munster, it would be Brunswick +4 units, which would be 6 Prussian dice versus 10 French dice. If you do want to proceed, feel free to roll the dice when ready as we do not attempt to evade or play any cards. Otherwise you don't have to attack Munster if you'd rather do something else.

469 12/11/2018 3:55:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message All of the units on the French side (one unit) were eliminated so the Russians are the Victors [as per rule 11.32], and therefore it cannot become a Rout. The Russians win the battle despite losing three units compared to the French losing their one unit. Kutuzov +1 now occupy Ratisbon and the Russians have 4 CPs remaining. And Kutuzov can continue moving because the battle was actually considered an overrun (but not a flag overrun).
