Oh...check and see if the Mud event ends:
147 1/16/2019 5:07:00 AM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #55: 3 / Papal Bull
Place a Unit and Flag (even if already flagged by an ally) in one friendly or unoccupied Duchy in or adjacent to Rome. OR Spend 5 CPs on the Diplomatic Track to influence any nation(s) other than Ottoman Turks but never during the first round of 1805.

Message from France:
Spain was done with that CP expenditure, so France is next - I'll play this as the event to put a unit and flag in Naples.

To Britain.

If an invading Force is in a Russian Home Duchy, all enemy Forces in or adjacent to Kiev suffer Attrition. Then, place two Russian Units in or adjacent to Kiev which cannot be intercepted or evaded during that placement.

Message from France:
So Mud is in effect - Timed Event.

Spain:

1) Knock Turkey back to pure neutrality.

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:

:)

I won't attempt to intercept, so here's 1.0) British Patrol:
128 1/13/2019 9:12:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Sorry, yes, I thought it, and you can't read my mind!?
127 1/12/2019 7:44:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Sorry - just to confirm, are you moving your 2 sqds from the Mid-Atlantic to the Bay of Biscay? (You didn't actually say that in your message.)
126 1/12/2019 7:06:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #8: 4 / Steal a March
This nation may Preempt unless doing so would give it consecutive Impulses. It may even Preempt an announced Preemption. It may spend 3 CP with this event in addition to possibly playing its Reserve. Not playable in 1805.

Message from Britain:
0.5) 2x SQ -> BoB (you may intercept before I link up with the other 2 SQs, we will fight if you do)

After that, if you aren't sunk, spend all CPs (until I have 0.5 CPs left) searching for your fleet and engaging it in battle. Once you are driven back to port or I have 0.5 CPs, we'll re-evaluate what to do..
125 1/12/2019 4:23:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Many thanks...I think the proper thing to do is to forfeit the last Maneuver and leave both sqds in the Bay of Biscay. (Which was among the options I considered anyway, to be honest!)

Britain can go ahead.
124 1/12/2019 4:00:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Tournament, but Friendly.

Friendly Tournament.. :)
123 1/12/2019 3:59:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message No that's fine, you can stay at sea (it can make sense to make the run to Bordeaux, but you'd probably do it with 2xSQ instead)..

Make use of your last 0.5
122 1/12/2019 12:45:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Oh...I didn't realize you got a shot at intercepting me going into the port! To be honest, that being the case I would have either stayed out in the BoB or moved 1 sqd to a different naval zone - I definitely didn't want to risk letting you get a 6 v 2 battle. Would you allow me to change that move? (It is a tournament, of course, so I wouldn't begrudge you if you didn't.)
121 1/12/2019 12:34:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message I'll pass it back to you at this point, since I think if you evade, you don't get to enter the port..

So I'm not sure if you want to fight or evade?

If there is a battle, you may resolve.

Both BR SQ attempt to intercept
119 1/12/2019 7:02:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Last maneuver:

4.0) 1 sqd from Bay of Biscay to Bordeaux. (Now 1 sqd in BoB, and 2 sqd + 2U in Bordeaux.)

Britain is up.
118 1/11/2019 7:11:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Oh, and 27 rolls with 1 '6', you are using up your luck at a prestigious rate. I just need to keep the game going until this catches up with you..

A moving, intercepting, evading or retreating Formation suffers Attrition in the space it has just entered and in each additional space it enters this Impulse. Once played, the affected Formation may not retract its move.

Message from Britain:
Played on Nappy after his first step..

After his first move, you may wish to change your move..

Forces may not enter enemy Duchies. This does not prevent ongoing sieges or sea battles from occurring, nor the flagging/unflagging of an already occupied space. Voided by War Without End event.

Message from France:
France:

1-3) Nappy + 8U from Nassau to Linz.
3.5) 2 sqds from Brest to the Bay of Biscay.

Draw a random card from the British hand (if available) and one from the Draw Pile. Not playable by Britain.

Message from France:
Not much doubt about what to do with this card - play it as an event. Britain has to pass a card along to Spain, and I'll draw another one as well.
101 1/10/2019 5:29:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message No forces hostile to Spain in Spain, so Partisans is played for 4 CPs by the Turks - they build 2U (now Yusuf + 4U in Constantinople).

96 1/10/2019 4:36:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message (FYI, if you took the odd losses as Austrian in both cases, you'd have 2 leaders + Russian 4U back to Moravia; at the other other extreme, you could have 2 leaders + Russian 2U + Austrian 2U there.)
95 1/10/2019 4:34:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message R2 is another draw, 3K/1D to 2K/2D (this time the kills being in my favor) - so I lose 5U and you lose 3U in total, but Vienna holds unless you have any other cards to play.

(Did you ever specify who took the odd attrition loss? You'll need to confirm the odd loss here as well; Davout and Lannes are down to 2U with them in Vienna, but Nappy is riding to the rescue...)

TRADE CENTERS: Gulf of Bothnia, Baltic Sea, Nystadt, Straslund, Danzig, Riga, Sakggerak, Copenhagen. This nation has 1 CP for each Trade Center it controls. Gain a Resource if a die roll is less than the number of Trade Centers controlled by its Camp. Add 1 to the die roll for each Trade Center controlled by the Enemy Camp.

Message from France:
Spain:

1) 1U from Galicia to Oporto. (2 sqds still in Galicia.)
2) Castanos + 2U from Madrid to Badajoz (joining the 2U there).
3) Castanos + 4U from Badajoz to Lisbon.

No BCs here - you can roll it up (at 5 v 2). If I win the battle without taking any losses, you can go ahead and resolve the siege as well (with me having 4 dice); if I take losses, pause and I'll continue myself.
