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:

I assume no intercept there, either (we can always go back and roll it later)

4FS combine with 2DS to form a multinational fleet. By my count, Britain now controls 5 seas.

2/5 Napster + ****5fu2su**** > Vilna
3/5 flag Vilna
4/5 Napster + ****5fu2su**** > Pskov

(as i am moving from uncontrolled to friendly, I do not think I incur attrition, but correct me if i am wrong)

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

688 9/9/2019 6:27:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message wait, let me do it another way:

2/6 2FS1SS enter brest
2.5/6 4FS1SS > BOB

does 1BS BOB intercept?

if yes, we have battle, which you may roll
687 9/9/2019 6:25:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message 2/6 2FS exit Brest to join the grand fleet

1BS BOB intercept them perhaps?
686 9/9/2019 6:22:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message No, Spanish may not move French fleets

No interception
685 9/9/2019 6:20:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message (I could not move that fleet using Spanish CPs, could I?)
684 9/9/2019 6:16:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I mean

1.5/6 2FS1SS > MA0 > BOB

1BS BOB intercept?
683 9/9/2019 6:15:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message does that count as an "aggrevated assault"?

1/6 2FS1SS > MA0 > BOB

1BS BOB intercept?
682 9/9/2019 6:13:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message as the text of the card says "cancel the inerception result", presumably that would make the evasion non-existent; but as it happens, it makes no difference :)
681 9/9/2019 6:12:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Of course - your proclivity for 6s is aggravating

679 9/9/2019 6:11:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Never mind on the evasion failed die - the interception result is voided by the event so no evasion penalty.
678 9/9/2019 6:09:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message French are only +1 to die roll, so failed first evasion attempt. (At least you get the maneuver back)

I believe since you attempted to evade, you still give up the extra die (event does not indicate that you don’t), so will be 5 FR/SP vs 4 BR. Please confirm
677 9/9/2019 5:59:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #19: 2 / Split Squadrons
Cancel any prior interception result and engage a portion of an enemy Fleet of your choice in the same Zone (including Offboard) without evasion. Ignore the rest which do not participate in the same battle. May be played without an intercept attempt or after or before an intercept/evasion attempt regardless of outcome.

Message from France:
the french will engage one squadron

so this makes 5 vs 3

you may roll
