Preemptions are not allowed while the Coalition controls 7 Zones. Discard when the Coalition fails to control 7 Zones at the end of any Impule. If played by a Neutral when the Coalition does not control 7 Zones, the event is unplayable and the card is used as 5 CPs.

I wish we could switch your attrition rolls for your siege roll on Lisbon

You should only have rolled 6 against Lisbon since I do have a fleet in SAO.
331 3/9/2019 5:37:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Had to go with plan B for that French impulse. Napoleon's march is on hold. Murat conquered Portugal, and the Spanish reinforced Granada.

Message from France:
Zurich to Milan attrition, Spanish
319 3/8/2019 10:26:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message I will roll my intercepts and evasions if and when the French armies move from Venice to Dalmatia.

Meanwhile I will see whether the German gunners can hit anything. They have had an entire day to plan their fire on the target area.
318 3/8/2019 10:21:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Per Entries 308, 309, and 310: The Coalition Army Group is now in Dalmatia. Here is the sequence that I envision. Bagration (a Russian Leader) is in command of the Army Group.

1. John (an Austrian leader) attempts to intercept and is unsuccessful.

2. Bagration (a Russian leader) attempts to evade and is unsuccessful.

3. Austria plays its Reserve as an Event Response. The last failed Austrian interception or evasion (that would be John's attempted interception) is canceled by the Reserve play and John intercepts.

That is what the wording on the Austrian Reserve says.
317 3/8/2019 10:12:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Napoleonic Wars strikes me as a game that should be played in person rather than by E-mail.
316 3/8/2019 10:07:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Napi's move from Zurich to Milan must roll attrition. This move may not be retracted. If he chooses to move from Milan to Venice, his force must roll more attrition. An additional move to Dalmatia if you chose to move there would incur more attrition. This is all in accordance with the event card. From Milan, I agree that Napi is not compelled to make additional moves.
315 3/8/2019 9:52:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message The way that I interpret Stragglers is that the moving stack may choose to stop moving after the first Duchy in which the card was played. If it is played on Napoleon's move from Zurich to Milan, Napoleon rolls attrition. Napoleon could then continue on to Venice in which case Napoleon's Army would roll attrition again. If the card was played on the move from Milan to Venice, both French armies would roll attrition. Regardless of where the card was played, any affected forces that continue movement afterwards, such as to Dalmatia, would roll attrition again.

I will await resolution of the attrition rolls before through the French move to Venice prior to making my interception to or evasion rolls from Dalmatia.

I believe that the Coalition Forces in Dalmatiaand Salzburg are required to make their interception and evasion decisions before the French player rolls any attrition resulting from the Venice to Dalmatia move?
314 3/8/2019 9:37:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Tom you can play on Napoleon from Zurich to Milan, and we can rewind to that point. However you can't force 3 attrition rolls for 3 moves, rewinding it to the move to Milan would undo the rest of the French impulse after that point. If I chose to still press forward with Stragglers then more attrition would follow.
313 3/8/2019 9:33:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Napi's stack must also roll attrition when going from Venice to Dalmatia
312 3/8/2019 9:15:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Sweden: Play Strategy card as Event #39: 3 / Stragglers
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:
Play on Napoleon before he moves to Milan and then Venice.
311 3/8/2019 9:13:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message It appears that France has preempted Spain to attack Austria. Before we get too far, I have a response card to play. I am playing stragglers on Napoleon in Zurich. This will require Napoleon's army to roll attrition when moving to Milan, and when moving to Venice-- Napi's army will roll attrition twice.
310 3/8/2019 8:29:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Bagration and his Russian troops can benefit from the Austrian HC when in an Army Group commanded by and Austrian leader.
309 3/8/2019 8:29:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Yes Austrian. Charles can command the combined army group for now. If Bagration were put in charge at some point, the combined Army group would not benefit from that HC until an Austrian took command on an Austrian impulse again.
308 3/8/2019 8:03:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message While Charles and Bagration are waiting from a response (npi) from the British military attache, I have a question on the Austrian Reserve. "Until then, all Austrian interceptions and evasions succeed - including one failed just prior to the play of this event." I interpret that to mean the last Austrian interception or evasion attempted before the Reserve is played as an Response Event. If I could do it here, I would bold the word Austrian in both sentences.

BTW, Charles and Bagration enjoyed some sports entertainment while they were dining.
307 3/8/2019 6:35:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Charles's Army safely arrived in Dalmatia having skillfully withdrawn from advancing French hordes at Venice. An Austrian spy reports that the French Emperor himself is in command of the Army. Marshall Charles is having dinner with his friend and ally Marshall Bagration. They are discussing what can be done to stop the advancing French forces.

A messenger just rode up. The French cavalry is in hot pursuit of the Austrian rear guard. The rest of Napoleon's army is just behind them. Orders, Sir? Put the armies on alert and send for John. This time please use two dice. OK, Marshall Bagration ... let's finish our dinner; I fear a big battle with the French invaders is coming soon. May the Force be with us replies Marshall Bagration.
306 3/8/2019 6:27:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Charles' *evasion.

Anyway, over to Charles and co. again for reaction decisions as the traveling circus heads to Dalmatia.
305 3/8/2019 6:24:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Charles interception is good, no matter what the second die is, in this case.
304 3/8/2019 6:16:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Note as per standard too many/too few dice protocol, only 1 die rolled means just roll the balance. Charles was so ready for that French move he only needed 1 die to evade.
303 3/8/2019 6:15:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message 4. Flag Venice French
5-6. Same Stack all to Dalmatia, I count 21 to 16 without John, 21 to 21 with John. A/R reaction?

299 3/8/2019 1:40:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #81: 6 / Napoleon Abdicates
Playable only with France's consent and if Napoleon is in play. Otherwise, play as 6 CPs. Regroup Napoleon, all French Forces not in French Home Duchies and all enemy Forces in French Home Duchies. France (but not its Pact allies) may not attack or be attacked until the next Turn when Napolon returns as a free reinforcement. If played during Turn 5, a 6th Turn is added. Voids Capitulation event vs. France.

Message from France:
Looks like France got a 3, I assume it could be worse. If that was worst case I think you were already up the creek without a paddle.
296 3/8/2019 11:46:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message France now has as many cards and reserves as Britain, Austria, and Russia combined. And Spain has more than Sweden.
295 3/8/2019 11:44:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message A card has gone missing from the Russian hand. I assume that it showed up in the French hand.

It is now the Ottoman impulse, unless France wants to pre-empt. Either way, it's an action by France.
294 3/8/2019 11:41:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Russia: Give random Strategy card to France Message from Austria:
There is a 25% chance of this being a small disaster, a 50% chance of this being a moderate disaster, and a 75% chance of this being a major disaster. Interpret that how you wish.
293 3/8/2019 11:37:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message You heard it from the Emperor himself. "I canít take another players card." OK, I'll try to do this. You do realize that this is a high risk operation.
292 3/8/2019 9:05:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I canít take another players card. Just click on give swap discard, from Russia to France
291 3/7/2019 10:11:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message The card says that France draws a random card from any nation. I presume that France chooses which nation and I assume that you know how to do that on ACTS. Let's all hope that you get one of the lousy ones.
290 3/7/2019 10:02:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message The czar's mathematician has been exiled to Siberia to study cold fusion.

The czar's ambassador to Prussia has been recalled. He won't make it to Siberia.
289 3/7/2019 9:58:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message You can have all of them! Don't you have enough cards?

288 3/7/2019 9:34:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message France draws a random card from any nation. Discard out of game if used as an Event after Napoleon Abdicates or Turn 3 - whichever occurs first.

Not what the Coalition wanted to see I'm sure. France will draw a card from Russia's hand.

If Russia is not a Subject Neutral or in a Foreign War AND no enemy Forces are in a Russian Home Duchy: ē draw two cards and play one of them, OR ē Roll a die and gain a Resource if you roll less than the current Turn number. Otherwise, build Units equal to the roll. RESERVE

Message from Austria:
Play as an Event, draw two cards.
282 3/7/2019 8:08:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message I thought that timed events ended when a Power played by a player rolled a 6. I guess that we have been playing it incorrectly. Not much advantage to playing a timed event near the end of a turn then. I wonder why it doesn't carry over to the next turn. I believe that Foreign War cards do. Or, have we been playing that incorrectly as well?
281 3/7/2019 7:51:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message No preempt

268 3/7/2019 5:26:00 PM 1807-1808 France Discard Strategy card Message from France:
Only way to do this it looks like according to Consimworld.

It appears there will be a few Allied spies in Napoleon's camp this turn (i.e. when I reclaim these cards you will get to see them, no way around it, unlike what would happen in a FTF game).
267 3/7/2019 4:33:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message I imagine that you tell it to deal the French 7 cards then tell it to randomly discard one. Probably not that simple though. I think that the holdover cards are subject to the random discard also. I'll check back in again tonight. Tom, we must not be pressing the French hard enough, he has extra cards.
266 3/7/2019 3:02:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Yes I should do that. Wanted to get it in this morning. Trying to figure out how acts works with leftover cards from a previous turn

Lannes stays in Milan with those 2u as well.

Soult takes the Extra Deployment, 2u from Artois, 1 from Naples. This leaves 1 in Brest.
