837 9/20/2019 1:36:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Foreign War #5: 4 / Serbian Revolt
Turkish Formations may not exit Turkey while this event is in play. Those outside Turkey Regroup. Any unspent odd CP of a Turkish Neutral build is used to attempt to end this Foreign War instead of placing the +1 CP marker. The +1 CP marker, if already in play, is removed. Add #1 to all attempts to end Turkish Foreign Wars (but not the Serbian Revolt) while this event is in play.

Message from Britain:
not glad to see that you could give those powers cards, but glad it was Prussia and not Turkey

Britain continues to try to level the playing field - (some of) your cannon fodder runs away to take care of obnoxious Serbs...Turkish formations outside of Turkey to regroup. I have the following:
1TU Upland
1TU Kiev
1TU Borodino
Yusuf, Ali Pasha and 4TU Moscow

Control markers removed from Tver, Gomel, Kiev, Zhitomir, Upland, Bucovina and Kolosvar

835 9/20/2019 1:13:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message but they only roll if they play a card (not a reserve). so it was a good play after all.
834 9/20/2019 1:09:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message AU and RU still count as player powers, as controlled by players at start of game. Prussia would not.
833 9/20/2019 12:19:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I just realized why Armistice as an event may have been a good play: only player powers roll to end the event, does that mean only Fr and Br in a two-player game?
832 9/20/2019 11:58:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Britain
