1057 8/25/2019 2:14:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Assuming y'all want to start up another game, I'll roll us all for choice:
1056 8/25/2019 2:13:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Actually, I *could* come and get ya, because you can't intercept, and I would come in via Ratisbon --- or else first build 1 in Ratisbon --- to close all evasion paths.
However, since we have a unanimous agreement to admit Freedom, Equality, & Brotherhood has carried the day, I'll stop beating the horse.
1055 8/25/2019 6:58:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Oh, hell, now that I thought of it, we have to try it. You've spent 7 CP. You can have Soult move with 8-9, and Lannes could spend 10-12 grabbing Turks and going for Round 4.

Or I could just thwart you, because all my interceptions/evasions will succeed! Nyah, nyah, nyah!

1054 8/25/2019 6:53:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message … Or does Pete want to finish spending his CP by moving Soult to attack Linz in an effort to finish exterminating the Austrians? I don't know you'll be able to kill the guy in Kolosovar (this turn)
1053 8/25/2019 6:49:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message …. get routed. I killed 1 Frenchie, and my four leaders return alone to Linz.

I did just realize I had one leader after all, though. I forgot that Ferdinand was killed, so if Russia did want to play him, he was available. Not that I think it would be worthwhile. A day 2 battle on our first go-round wouldn't have been good, and I don't think it matters whether I avoid the rout now.

So, Pete has tasted his blood. Can we quit now?

OK, before we quit, let's see how much "death" we are "to". First, the French Clouseaus stumble around...
1050 8/25/2019 5:28:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message Sorry. No cards. Up to you guys if we continue.
1049 8/24/2019 2:58:00 PM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #30: 2 / To the Death
Void any land evasion (including the effects of previously played events such as Hussars & Grenzers) OR a just defeated enemy must fight a new battle without further terrain effect, evasion, interception, or retreat.

Message from France:
If Bruce isn't going to Respond to change the result of the first battle --- or to throw in the towel --- I play this to force a second battle.
Looks like 25 versus 13.
No cards from me before the first round.
1048 8/24/2019 6:39:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message My losers go to Linz to join the two guys that couldn’t make it, unless someone plays “Rally” so I could win/rout.
1047 8/23/2019 10:12:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Return Strategy card to hand #34: 3 / Bravest of the Brave

Message from Russia:
1046 8/23/2019 8:00:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message *Is* anybody...
(not "I anybody")
1045 8/23/2019 7:59:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message OK, so 2 units are still back in Linz.
After dropping the last two Austrian dice, the battle rolls are 5k/5d versus 5k/4d.
"Bravest of the Brave" doesn't say anything about getting a unit if there is no leader to build. Maybe you're thinking of what it says on Emigres & Exiles?
I anybody going to play a Response to alter this narrow Imperial victory?
Looks like Austria loses 5, now Schwarzenburg/Charles/Colloredo/John/7.
And Imperials lose 5, now Napoleon/5 +1 Turk and Blake/3 and Blucher/Kleist/8.
1044 8/23/2019 5:37:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message Yes, the two unless units in Linz also went in. I thought once you roll for an intercept all the units go, even though unled units evade separately. So I moved S/8 in for an extra 9 dice. I feel bad that I don’t have an available leader to build though. Do I get an extra unit instead?
1043 8/23/2019 4:47:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message I'm guessing the 2 unled units in Linz came along too. I'll let our rules maven to rule.
1042 8/23/2019 2:34:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message If the dice rolled were incorrect I may take my card back.
1041 8/23/2019 2:28:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Dave,
I think Schwartz+6 should have given you 7 more dice, not 9 more dice. Correct?
1040 8/23/2019 2:21:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Event #34: 3 / Bravest of the Brave
If available to be built, create a "1-4" leader for either side in a battle space. It may affect that battle by rolling an extra die even after all the battle dice have been thrown. It remains in play until eliminated.

Message from Russia:
Oh I’ll just play it.
1039 8/23/2019 2:21:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message I have one but
1038 8/23/2019 2:11:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message Well, well, well. I scored 6k/4d. Which means we might have a day 2 on our hands. Lets see what cards we have available to us. None from me, but allies?

Here comes a giant French whiff!!!
1034 8/23/2019 2:04:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Event #901: 6 / Hussars and Grenzers

1031 8/23/2019 1:48:00 PM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #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:
While we wait for Bruce's input on throwing in the towel, I heard you're supposed to kick 'em while they're down...
Army group Blucher/Kleist/10 march from Moravia to the sound of the guns.
1030 8/23/2019 1:31:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message I have no card for this battle unless it comes up really tight and a hit or two could change it.
I have ho problem conceding (I'm 2nd as it is and can't win) but also willing to play it out.
1029 8/23/2019 7:13:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Charles made it in, but Schartz was asleep at the switch.

I have no cards, you can roll them. Or we can just concede the game, I'm long past ready to concede.

Dalmatia was flag overrun (msg #971) so the tricolour flies over that fortunate duchy.

1004 8/21/2019 6:03:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Is it too late to submit, then spend 7 CP to declare war on Russia? Just kidding. I’m tempted to do the equivalent of “taking my ball and going home” by spending my card&reserve to build units and turtle up in Vienna saying “just roll defense for me, let me know when the game ends”. In other words, I don’t see a path to victory, or even 3rd place for me.
1003 8/21/2019 5:36:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message I lose. John bravely ran away leaving his extra unit to get slaughtered, but he's safe in Vienna

What Dave meant by "C/C/2 return" is,
his winning army spent his second CP to move back to Vienna.

993 8/20/2019 12:20:00 PM 1811-1812 France Prussia: 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:
1: Kleist/2 from Lodz to Breslau, now Blucher/6 and Kleist/4.
3: Blucher/6 and Kleist/4 to Krakow. John/4 could intercept from Moravia but I assume not.
5: Blucher/6 and Kleist/4 to Moravia.
Looks like 14 versus 7+1=8 if no interceptions or evasions happen.
Remember the 1 loose change unit in Moravia would need to evade separately.

No plus-play, Russia turn (France preemptively said there would be no preempt).

961 8/17/2019 6:19:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Bah, rescuing Lannes.

My only hope was to defeat/rout Lannes for the extra card, so Ferd must keep Dalmatia blocked.

I'll fight. No cards. Roll them.
960 8/17/2019 6:12:00 AM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #76: 3 / Treaty of Tilsit
If enemies, France and Russia ponder a one-Impule Armistice. If accepted, Russia controls Nystadt and Sveaborg with no Diplomatic Track effects. Russia draws two cards and all Russian Formations and Swedish Forces not in their Home Duchies Regroup. If not accepted or apllicable, this event is 6 CPs for the nation that played it and remains in the game.

Message from France:
France preempts with this, declining the treaty.
2: Napoleon/7 +1 Spaniard and Yusuf/4 move from Venice (leaving Mustafa/2) to Dalmatia.
Ferdinand/4 could attempt evasion.
