605 3/21/2019 5:41:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 2 / General Staff
All unled Units of a nation of your choice have intercept/evashion capability as if led by a "1-4" leader. Such units have the ability to place and prevent placement of Flags like an Army but do not constitute an Army for purposes of a possible Resource gain if routed.

Message from France:
Sadly, this is the card I drew with my Resource...2 CPs:

1) Davout + 6U from Wurttemburg to Munich. (Lannes + 2U remain in Wurttemburg.)

Will Schwarzenburg + 3U in Linz attempt to intercept?
604 3/21/2019 5:28:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Told you! My 1U retreats to Picardy; you flag Brussels with your second CP.

To France to end the turn...

No Power may join the Imperial Camp in the next Interphase. All Consuls on an Imperial nation's row of the Diplomatic Track not already in Pact status move one box to the left. If the Consul is in +1 status, it is also flipped to its normal side. Unlike other diplomatic events, this may be played during the first round of 1805.

Message from Britain:
1) activate 1u in Antwerp, attack Key next door.

If I win, flag for (2), otherwise push Prussia to British +1

576 3/18/2019 1:19:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: 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 France:
4 more CPs:

1-2) Flag Koloszvar and Budapest.
3-4) Massena + F4U + T2U from Banat to Vienna.

Go big or go home, I say! :)

I have to suffer attrition in Vienna for moving 5 spaces - you can resolve any evasion roll, the attrition (rolling separately for French and Turkish), and the resultant battle if there is one, and then proceed to the British.
575 3/18/2019 1:15:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Fort is captured in an Overrun without loss. So on we go:

4) Massena + F4U + T2U from Belgrade to Banat.
5) Flag Banat.

I'll then use the Plus from my Reserve...

Franco-Turkish siege of Belgrade:
572 3/18/2019 1:03:00 PM 1809-1810 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:
OK...France has 5 CPs:

1) Unflag Wallachia.
2-3) Massena + F4U + T2U from Bucharest to Belgrade.

Siege dice coming.

569 3/17/2019 7:20:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Not that I've been the fastest player myself at various points during this game, but I think we (and you in particular) do need to speed this up to stay on track if it does go the full 5 turns...

561 3/12/2019 1:03:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Napoleon's demonic genius again carries the day - I win 3K/3D to 3K/2D. I'll assume the odd loss is Austrian unless you specify otherwise; if so, that means Dalmatia now has R4U and A3U, and Venice has F3U. And Russia has 4 CPs left.

511 3/6/2019 9:11:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message That would appear to be a rout - 3K/4D vs. 3K/0D - in my favor unless you have a Response card to play. If not, you can make my Loot roll, confirm which nationality loses the extra unit out of the 7 losses, and then do the Prussian impulse before letting me know if Britain is preempting Turkey (or Prussia).

Automatically intercept an enemy Fleet in your Zone at no cost with no possibility of evasion. Each of your Squadrons throws an additional battle die in the ensuing battle. OR: Automatically evade (even after failing an evasion dice roll) and enter any friendly Port in that Zone or exit that Zone (unless offboard) without interception.

Message from Britain:
1-2) Activate Kutuzov + 6u in Belgrade: -> Slavonia -> Zagreb.
3-4) Kutuzov + Charles (6u each) -> Dalmatia.

Evade, intercept, fight? You may resolve.
