864 6/11/2019 6:17:00 PM 1813-1814 France Message Okay, time to draw cards! The order of drawing cards doesn't matter since it should be random, but I recommend declaring Mulligans in order starting with Britain unless you don't care about the others knowing your intentions. Each nation draws the following number of cards, but please double-check my math as I have been known to make mistakes on rare occasions. Also make sure you change the default setting to the correct number of cards when drawing cards because ACTS doesn't know if you lost/gained keys or played cards to affect the Peace roll.

3 Britain (burnt a card during Peace roll)
3 Austria (burnt a card during Peace roll)
4 Russia
2 Prussia
2 Turkey
2 Spain
1 Sweden
1 Denmark
7 France

850 6/6/2019 10:09:00 AM 1811-1812 Prussia Message Guys
I know Matthew isn’t going to switch sides and neither is Prussia
Just to keep things moving
849 6/5/2019 11:22:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message While everyone is supposed to declare in order, it is a no-brainer that Russia won't be switching sides (and just to make it official, France declares that they will reject Russia if they said they were switching sides).

Hence, Austria and Prussia can make their declarations without waiting for Russia (keeping in mind that they could present the French with an offer regarding switching sides if they were so inclined).
848 6/5/2019 5:24:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Since the war rages on, we now move on to the part of the Interphase where nations can switch camps.

Order of declaration:
1.) Austria
2.) Russia
3.) Prussia

Message from France:
Just for kicks, here is the Peace Die Roll so everyone can know what they purchased
846 6/5/2019 5:19:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Likewise, France doesn't spend a card either.

I just fixed the Swedish Consul and similarly moved those two units from Linz back to Vienna.
845 6/5/2019 4:25:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message Obviously Russia does not need to spend a card.

But we would like to note that Sweden is now neutral, which is not yet reflected on the diplomatic track.
844 6/5/2019 2:36:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message austria spends a card to make it impossibe for peace to happen
843 6/5/2019 10:15:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message Britain spends a card to keep the war going thus making it (currently) impossible for peace to be declared
842 6/4/2019 6:47:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message No conquests, so on to the Peace die roll phase. Each player in Order of Movement starting with Britain must announce if they are adding or subtracting one to/from the upcoming Peace die roll this Turn by reducing their Hand replenishment for the next Turn by one card. (And when you say "adding" to the upcoming Peace die roll, it means you are increasing the likelihood of peace.)

Prussia cannot participate because they are due the minimum number of cards next round. And France will be the winner of this game if peace is declared this turn.

Message from France:
Prussia's roll
839 6/4/2019 6:33:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message CONQUEST PHASE:

We have two candidates for conquest this interphase, Prussia and France.

A nation is conquered if it has lost all of its Keys, or 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 for each Key lost from its initial inventory
-1 (Prussia)
-2 (France)

So Prussia is conquered on a "5" or higher (two keys lost with a -1 modifier).
So France is conquered on a "6" or higher (two keys lost with a -2 modifier).

838 6/4/2019 6:30:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Naval Build phase:

France's squadron in Venice gets flipped to Refit status.

2 units moves to Ardennes.

France flags Ardennes as French.

1 units moves to Brussels.

France flags Brussels as French.

831 6/4/2019 6:07:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Scratch that. Napoleon stays put.
830 6/4/2019 6:01:00 PM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #2: 5 / Down with the Prince
Place two Units and a Flag of either nation matching the nationality of an Associate Duchy in that Duchy. Battle all enemy Formations without evasion and before any interception is attempted.

Message from France:
Napoleon +8 move from Berlin to Posen. Does Prussia attempt to intercept from Lodz?
829 6/4/2019 5:44:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Denmark flags Hannover.

The two units in Hannover move to Hesse.
828 6/4/2019 5:40:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Denmark wins on account that all units on the British side were eliminated (Rule 11.32).

Danish Fleets have an intercept/evade level of 8, throw three Battle dice per Squadron, and may void one "6" in battle during this Impulse. The Danes may use four Maneuvers this Impulse even if Inactive. OR Draw a card. RESERVE

Message from France:
Denmark flags Mecklenberg.

Then the two units attack Hannover. It will be 2 dice versus 2 dice. I will roll for the battle since I cannot envision you'd retreat.
824 6/4/2019 11:46:00 AM 1811-1812 Prussia Message PRUSSIA PASSES
823 6/2/2019 1:51:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message I did not realize it was a route. Happy day. Instead of moving those two units from Vienna to Linz, we move the Swedish Counsel to neutral.

Russia forgot to roll for a resource, so I will roll on their behalf. They need a 1-3.
821 6/2/2019 1:05:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Prussia's turn
820 6/2/2019 12:47:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message The coalition is enjoying the French women in Paris. And they like it. We flag Paris. With our final cp we move 2 units out of Vienna to Linz. Russian turn over.
819 6/2/2019 12:44:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message The Coalition wins the battle 8 (65555555) to 5 (66655). It becomes a rout, so the French lose 8 units whereas the Coalition loses 3 units (divided evenly as one unit per each nationality).

France retreats to Champagne.

I believe Russia still has 2 CPs remaining. And because it was a rout, Russia gets to roll for a Resource (on a 3 or below).

+1 nationality bonus

Here is the Coalition's attack

816 6/2/2019 12:12:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Britain will take the hit for the casualty. My bad!
815 6/2/2019 11:36:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message I don't believe Britain has declared which nationality loses the unit on the Coalition's side from the previous battle. Britain decides because their Commander led the battle.
814 6/2/2019 11:32:00 AM 1811-1812 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #83: 6 / Double March
This nation places one of its Armies on this card. Anytime during its next Impulse (whether Scheduled, Preemptive, or Pass), it returns to any space it could deploy to from its Capital. It is then able to move by normal CP expenditure. The Army moved must be capable of deployment to its Capital as if this were an Interphase without being Convoyed.

Message from Russia:
Kutuzov leads the combined Russian, British and Prussian force in Picardy against Paris. Bill, you may play a battle card if applicable and roll the dice.
813 6/2/2019 11:18:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message Austria is out of cards and France cannot preempt, so it is now Russia's turn.
812 6/2/2019 10:29:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message Flag Ardennes

British turn over
811 6/2/2019 10:19:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message France loses both units. Britain gets to pick who loses their single unit. It is a rout and a flag overrun, so Picardy is flagged as British and Britain still has 1 CP remaining.

805 6/1/2019 10:54:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #903: 6 / Admiralty
Britain draws two cards if its Fleets control six Zones at the start of its Impulse. Voided by Bey of Algiers or if Britain is a Subject Neutral. RESERVE

Message from Britain:
Hoorah it's time to have some more fun with dice
Flag Brussels for the Brits I suppose
The entire combined army in Brussels attacks Picardy. Britain plays no battle cards
I don't think Russia or Prussia are playing battle cards either but they can correct me on that accordingly...
804 5/31/2019 2:14:00 PM 1811-1812 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:
France builds 2 more units in Picardy. The 2 units in Baden move to Nassau.

Britain's turn.
803 5/31/2019 2:13:00 PM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #28: 2 / Horse Artillery
Increase your battle dice in the next battle round by an amount equal to a die roll. The number of extra dice is not determined until after all battle cards for that round have been played.

Message from France:
France builds a unit in Picardy
802 5/31/2019 2:13:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Prussia, Turkey, Spain, Sweden and Denmark all pass.
801 5/30/2019 5:54:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message Yes, Russia's turn is over.
800 5/30/2019 5:51:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Nah, we'll let you invade Brussels.

Is Russia's turn finished?
799 5/30/2019 5:19:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message I thought there might be a rules clarification like this.

So, as long as the British are willing, we are brining Wellington and his army with us and using our last cp. So the entire force in Munster moves to Brussels. Do the French wish to attempt an intercept?
798 5/30/2019 4:43:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Steve, could you please redo Russia's turn if you wouldn't mind (or at least confirm that you are only bringing the Russian and Prussian armies into Brussels)? Wellington's army is in Munster along with the Russian and Prussian armies. You could bring Wellington's army with you, but Wellington couldn't join the battle by intercepting a French interception.
797 5/30/2019 11:06:00 AM 1811-1812 Prussia Message When it is PRUSSIA’S TURN..
PRUSSIA will Pass !!
796 5/30/2019 9:08:00 AM 1811-1812 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #74: 4 / Turning Movement
One of your Armies may move two spaces without interception, Attrition or enemy evasion. It may pick up or drop off Units. Battle occurs only if you enter a space containing an enemy Formation. Turning Movement cannot occur through a Fortress or an enemy Formation unless that Formation is Overrun.

Message from Russia:
All Russian and Prussian forces in Munster move to Brussels.

Do the French in Picardy wish to attempt an interception? Note that according to our recent rule interpretation, Nelson and the British should have the ability to attempt an interception also if the French army succeeds with its own interception.
795 5/29/2019 9:57:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message Austria passes
794 5/28/2019 5:33:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message I'm all set
Onto the Austrians!
793 5/28/2019 5:28:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Looks good. Anything else, or is it Austria's turn now?
792 5/28/2019 5:12:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message So Wellington (+4) are going to Oldenburg
then Wellington (+4) are going to Hannover
Flag Hannover
Welling (+3) move to Munster
791 5/28/2019 5:12:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message The rest of the Brits move to Munster. I'm definitely losing it.
790 5/28/2019 3:59:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message You can only intercept if you have a leader present.

Could you reiterate your full move when you have a minute? I am not entirely sure what you are doing. You mentioned leaving one unit in Hannover. However so far you only had said that Wellington +4 move from Rotterdam to Oldenburg and then from Oldenburg to Hannover. As I currently understand your move, Wellington +4 are sitting in Hannover with a flag and you still have 1 CP remaining.
789 5/28/2019 3:50:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message What about the Danish? I'm crossing my wires on the rules here I think. If I am, just flag and then leave one unit in Hannover
788 5/28/2019 12:22:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message France doesn't have any armies near Oldenburg or Hannover, so we can't intercept. Similarly I am not sure who you are attacking.
787 5/27/2019 9:12:00 PM 1811-1812 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:
CP
Wellington (+4) to Oldenburg
Wellington (+4) to Hannover
Do you intercept? If so no battle cards played for the Brits.
786 5/24/2019 8:47:00 PM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #37: 4 / Partisans
All forces in Spanish Home Duchies hostile to Spain suffer Attrition except for Fortress Flags. Spain gains one CP for ach Attrition kill for immediate use. Event is void and must be played for 4 CPs if there are no Forces hostile to Spain in Spain.

Message from France:
France builds two units in Picardy.

Britain's turn.
785 5/24/2019 8:45:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Sweden and Denmark both pass.
784 5/24/2019 8:45:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message The plucky Russians gurgle down into the depths of the North Sea.

With their remaining 2 CPs, the unit in Galicia moves to Oporto and flags it.
