1404 12/3/2019 10:20:00 AM Master ID = 24961 Game Deleted
1403 12/2/2019 1:40:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message only the person who originated the game can delete it
1402 11/24/2019 3:21:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message I'll play
1401 11/23/2019 1:04:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Would be in :-)
1400 11/23/2019 12:20:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message There hasn't been much interest expressed. As I wrote, I am willing to start a 5 player game. If it is just the two of us we could recruit from our PBEM pals willing to use CB. I recall Nando and Sir-Toby expressed interest.
1399 11/22/2019 2:24:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Are we restarting?
1398 11/14/2019 12:04:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Yes, congrats... you maxed out the chance that was given to you without a fight, very well played. :-)
1397 11/14/2019 11:04:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message Thank you for tallying up the results. I was lucky to be away from most of the action. I learned a lot from you all. I had only played 4-5 power F2F a few times with a local group several years ago. We did minimal diplomacy compared to this group.

I would be up for another 5 player game, any power. I can't commit to play any faster than checking in once a day before or after work.
1396 11/14/2019 1:30:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message This is the tally. You won, Frank, fair and square. Congratulations.

France: Keys (+2) Minors (1) Resources (0) = 3
Britain: Keys (-2) Minors (0) Resources (0) = 2
Austria: Keys (-2) Minors (0) Resources (0) = -2
Russia: Keys (+2) Minors (0) Resources (2) = 4
Prussia: Keys (-1) Minors (1) Resources (1) = 1

Anyone for a rematch? I've been playing a lot of 2-player games lately, they move faster.
1395 11/13/2019 10:35:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message As I understand it, die roll of 5 + 1 DRM for card = 6, Peace, game over. I will let you more experienced players tally keys and resources to declare who won.
1394 11/13/2019 7:45:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Congrats?

Message from Russia:
Peace die roll...
1392 11/13/2019 3:52:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I think we should let him roll it. He's played an excellent game.
1391 11/13/2019 3:07:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Things change.
Frank, do you want to roll to see if you win?
1390 11/13/2019 2:58:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Already said that i won't give a card.
1389 11/13/2019 12:26:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Prussia up to decide and then we should probably let Russia roll.
1388 11/13/2019 9:11:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message Yes, I will expend a card.
1387 11/13/2019 5:37:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Russia: a card from you gives you 33%
1386 11/13/2019 5:33:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message Austria will not spend a card
1385 11/13/2019 5:27:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Austria: if you do not spend a card, and Russia does, he has a 33% chance of winning now. it's a good chance, and he deserves to win.
1384 11/13/2019 5:27:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message and you are playing a great game, Frank! and bein inscrutable is also a good strategy, especially in your current position. we three on the other hand like to blabber, that's our way to enjoy the game, I hope us three trading barbs does not ruin the game for you. :)
1383 11/12/2019 9:07:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message I am just trying to play a game, have some fun, do the best I can. I will stay out of the end of turn negotiations as I have nothing to add.
1382 11/12/2019 7:00:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Russia;
I believe my motives and true intentions have been very obvious. Have you anything to say on the matter?
1381 11/12/2019 2:49:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Austria, will you burn a card?
1380 11/12/2019 12:09:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message then we can discuss it after we find out if we still have a game
1379 11/11/2019 11:51:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message No, that ship sailed.
And by round I mean turn but I suppose we can discuss rounds too.
1378 11/11/2019 11:47:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message > My first offer stands. One round truce, you can reflag Brussels

and you spend the card?
1377 11/11/2019 5:24:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message My first offer stands. One round truce, you can reflag Brussels
1376 11/11/2019 4:44:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message No, this is not about poor Britain at all... that was not my point.

Anyway, before i will talk about anything we should see how Austria und Russia will decide and if there is a next turn. I will be surprised if Austria will throw in a card but let's see what will happen.
1375 11/11/2019 4:34:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I'm touched by your solicitude for British interests; poor Britain, so he might capture keys which he might then possibly risk losing? How very sad for him.

As for our coopertion, I confess I have lost confidence that I can ever make you an offer to please you -- that never seems to work. why dont we put the shoe on the other foot: why don't you tell me what we can do together.

And Spain's keys are not on offer. :)


1374 11/11/2019 4:27:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message I won't give a card but i am eager to hear your offer on collaboration. And i do not accept spanish keys as a payment. ;-)
1373 11/11/2019 4:25:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Giving away keys in Spain will not hurt France at all as long as it won't get conquered and France has more VPs. And as Britain said, those spanish keys are always depending on your pact. A neutralized Spain will screw Britains plans and chances easily. So you should offer some french sacrifices and not sacrificing Spain. ;-)
1372 11/11/2019 4:24:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Austria

You are safe from Russian attack this turn and as long as you remain a subject neutral, you draw a maximum hand. why don't you be everybody's best friend and spend one of those cards for us? :)
1371 11/11/2019 4:13:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Austria I mean,
Autocorrect
1370 11/11/2019 4:12:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message No card,
Mass trial up.
1369 11/11/2019 4:11:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I will work with Prussia but i will kill Wellington first :)
1368 11/11/2019 3:52:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message So are you rejecting my offers?
1367 11/11/2019 3:33:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message france isnt giving a card for the simple reason that france is at war with everybody at present.

i am proposing to give my (spanish) keys to britain in return for his card so the sacrifice would be shared between us -- so dont get mad with me, i am not asking you to make any sacrifice.


1366 11/11/2019 3:15:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Why isn't France giving a card? You have the most cards anyway and already the best shot at coming out leading again if Russia will be pushed back. Why should anyone pay for boosting your chances while lowering their owns?
1365 11/11/2019 1:15:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Going after Spain is a risk for me because if someone plays an event to unpact it, I get screwed. Itís a big deal for me to leave you alone. So Iím giving up a lot which is why Iím asking the same of you.
1364 11/11/2019 12:57:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message well, i can always reflag Madrid for you, if you just want to pick the keys and leave Spain independent. :)

anyway, why dont you guys ask Austria. :)
1363 11/11/2019 12:56:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Or... maybe we can ask Austria to do it. he gets a full hand this turn and cant be attacked by Russia. and i just might go easy on him this turn. :)
1362 11/11/2019 12:55:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message No,
Fighting for Spain doesnít do you any good. Russia would still win. So if you want me to give something up then you do as well.
Same deal but you can reflag Brussels.
Or,
If you want me to spend a card then you have to give me brussels and agree to leave me alone entirely.

1361 11/11/2019 12:46:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message And yes i do mean +2 keys for you; since I dont get to reflag Brussels till next turn, you do get the extra card and the resource.
1360 11/11/2019 12:39:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Nah. Brussels goes. It's too close to Paris. And you cant hold it'anyway, and if you don't deploy Wellington out, I am going to preempt everybody and kill him. So, actually, making it part of a deal is just saving you face.

And I can deploy a French army to Spain if I choose to plus leave whatever I build there and force you to fight for it. So... take Spain... and play the card... and save Welly.. and we leave each other alone. Fair?
1359 11/11/2019 12:25:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message I assume you mean plus 2 keys for Britain.

Iím not opposed to making a deal with you but you actually have to offer me something. You have already left Spain in garrisoned.
If I spend a card I donít get a resource. You didnít even spend a card.
So my offer to you is, Iíll retreat Wellington and not land again in France if you leave me Brussels and leave me alone.
1358 11/11/2019 5:18:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Britain: will you spend a card?
1357 11/11/2019 5:18:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Britain:

if you agree to spend a card to prevent Russian victory and agree to retreat Welly from the continent, I will leave Spain ungarrisoned for you to take and will attempt to cooperate with Prussia.
1356 11/11/2019 5:17:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message
Starting with France, each of us may now offer to spend a card to prevent Russian victory on a roll of "6".

France will not spend a card.
1355 11/11/2019 5:14:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Nope.

Brits need a bigger correction but i am a hurry and can't go back through log, last two plays are not in the current file. I also removed PR forces from Warschau in a correction file but that got skipped by France when he still saw them. I think everybody has to check and state difference so we can make a complete correction file.

Daniel... while you cannot use your reserve to build in Warsaw, you CAN use your reserve to build a leader +3 in Koenigsberg. If you are worried about Russia... that should give you a lot of leverage

1342 11/9/2019 9:37:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: 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 Britain:
So I think I can do this.
2 for Wellington and his stack to Rotterdam.
Face port guns,
2/6 Then flag Rotterdam and Brussels
6/6 Build 1 bu with Wellington?
1341 11/9/2019 3:51:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message I really have no idea what to expect to happen in the next turn... this game is really strange. Do what you would be best for Britain. Britain is always good for a surprise attack and really be a major distraction for France, especially with a backyard that open. The problem is more that Russia will be leading and France will be needed to change that. ;-)
1340 11/9/2019 12:04:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message bold is always more fun

Immediately following the Resource Gain attempt die roll of ANY Army Rout, roll a die. You may spend that many CPs on the Diplomatic Track to move any Consul(s) in either direction. A die roll of 6 is needed to break Pact status.

Message from France:
1330 11/8/2019 1:56:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Yes, 1CP is fleet movement. France is up.
1329 11/8/2019 12:25:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message SOrry, I was out of the office alot this week and haven't been following. I will support France in this to be consistent in how we treat errors.
I think the fleet movement to black sea ish is 1cp.
1328 11/8/2019 6:12:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message well, no, i did not notice. what did turkey do? draw a card (which now you are keeping) and how did you use your 1CP?
1327 11/8/2019 5:33:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message And second, if you did not notice, i took the card back in my hand. So there should be no reason to complain.
1326 11/8/2019 5:31:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message First, i made an illegal play out of order, so the best way would have been to undo it, i had to do and would do that even if i had a 6 card. But you said keep the card so i kept it.

In this case the card itself didn't matter so much because it was more about a strategic decision if i want to get another play or not.

The submission messed up my plans a bit and i got confused. But in the end we are now back to the situation after my first mistake. Prussia passed and Turks drawed a card, the card you agreed i should keep. So besides my own confusion nothing changed.
1325 11/8/2019 5:18:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message (I suppose if I were Daniel, I too would prefer to undo the draft of Massed Grenadiers)
1324 11/8/2019 4:23:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message 1. does anyone understant what Daniel did and why?
and
2. is everyone quite OK with him drawing a card then deciding that he didn't want to draw one after all?

there was a big brouhaha here recently because i went out of order; even though I neither rolled dice or drew a card. how about this?
1323 11/8/2019 3:52:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Forgot to say that the fleet movement will stay as my 1CP.
1322 11/8/2019 3:51:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Now i am (really) done.
1321 11/8/2019 3:50:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Sorry for all this confusion. Sometimes its hard to avoid distractions.
1320 11/8/2019 3:48:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Turks will draw a card... i just put the discarded card back in hand.

1311 11/8/2019 3:30:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message No, was just not at my computer yesterday evening after work. The thing is that i forgot about the submission so my plans won't make any sense anymore and i just can play both of my reserves for something else. After knowing that Russia stopped flagging and instead build defenses near Turkey i would plan differently.
1310 11/7/2019 11:23:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message he really wants t redo that card draw :)

1308 11/7/2019 1:54:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Let's resolve the submission first with all effects and then i will decide.
1307 11/7/2019 1:50:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Yeah, flagging makes no sense in this case and i am sure it was not a legal play. Totally forgot that Austria already submitted. So i have to rethink my play and might change to something very different.
1306 11/6/2019 9:52:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #49: 3 / Russian Winter
The Russian (even if without cards) selects a Russian Home Duchy to suffer Attrition (excluding any Fortress Flag) and gains two CPs for immediate use in that Impulse for each Attrition loss inflicted. Repeat at the start of each Russian scheduled Impulse. A Neutral Proxy will not play this event unless Russia contains enemy Foces.

Message from Russia:
Build 1 RU in Upland.
1305 11/6/2019 9:48:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Since Austria submitted and I accepted, shouldn't Austria lose his resource and I gain one? Rules 15.5.
I thought I had done the above but those actions are not in the latest move file. I will do this again and take my impulse.

Also, since Austria is a Subject Neutral of Russia in the Coalition camp, can Turkey flag an Austrian space?
