OK guys. This was a really weird game. All based around diplomacy but none if us got the big cards. I learned how important the Continental System is. You guys always had strong front lines I couldn't advance against but you couldn't advance either. Thanks for a well balanced but frustrating game.

Ken,
You got a flag overrun in Lyon so you don't need to flag it.
However, it's still muddy so you already spend 2 CP's to get to Lyon, and your 1 remaining CP is not enough to get back to Paris.

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.

It's +1 per duchy for Mud (not per army).
So you still have 1 CP left. You could unflag Prague or Moravia...

> Spanish's double marching army may be limited by the British armies in France depending on how we say where it is coming from and where its going to. Let me know.

It returns to any space it could deploy to from its capital (Madrid). But the British armies are successfully messing with lines of deployment from Iberia to the rest of the continent. So you are stuck in Iberia + Toulouse + Langueduc. However, as Dave can attest, I have never been a fan of sticking to the literal wording when it is counter-intuitive and seems to be not in accordance with what is in my opinion the obvious intent. So if you guys all want to say Castanos/4 are actually "deploying" from somewhere around Salzburg/Linz/Dalmatia, I would agree wholeheartedly.

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,

You can't do that because it's not a Refitting squadron. It's a squadron under a Build marker.
