1057 2/26/2020 4:51:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message I try to end my games, if adim comes back I would continue to play.
1056 2/26/2020 12:39:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message Farrell - I'm a bit full at the moment with other games I've committed to (even with adim's absence), but I'll let you know once I free up. Thanks.
1055 2/25/2020 4:57:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Well I dont want you to play something that you wish to end. I do appreciate it that you haven't quit.
Lets just let this game sit and maybe Adim will come back.
Michael, I'd be up for another game if you can find some other people interested too.
1054 2/25/2020 1:44:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message Normally he always said if he cannot find the time to play. So yes it is really strange.

From my perspective, I don`t find the time to play online although I enjoy it. I would not join another game, and to be honest I would not mind if the game comes to an end.
1053 2/24/2020 1:48:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message We could start a new game and then return to this one if he comes back. I mean I do hope he is okay, but it is weird that he hasn't played in two weeks. He is in alot of other games and hasn't played in any of those either.
1052 2/23/2020 6:05:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Not sure what else we can do besides wait...

Place a French Unit and Flag in Ulster, Connaught and Cork unless occupied by an enemy Unit or leader. Britain forteits one reinforcement CP for each French flag in Ireland during each Interphase while this event is in effect. Discard out of game once Britain regains control of all Irish spaces.

1042 2/10/2020 3:19:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message farrell, my friend, do the honors. you have some dice to roll
1041 2/10/2020 3:18:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Yes, the response negates the battle card per the wording on the event. Impossible to pause for every foreseeable response, and in this case itís one where timing-wise would have affected the rolls but nothing to do about it. The 12-pounders are negated, and AU has a few more dice to roll. No worries, I think we are all just violently agreeing.
1040 2/10/2020 3:06:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message cool.

1039 2/10/2020 3:00:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message I said in 1034, that I was willing to wait on Michael. I'm in no rush. I'm still going to lose the battle, but I'm hoping to prevent a rout.
1038 2/10/2020 3:00:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message not contesting your view at all, but i just got through a really long and stupid argument about some card and am tired of it and the best way to resolve any doubt is to ask michael, if he says you are right, my 12 pounders are null and void and you roll a few more dice. ok?
1037 2/10/2020 2:54:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message farrell, i think you are probably right, i just want to ask michael, you dont mind, right?
1036 2/10/2020 2:36:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message I was the active player so I play battle cards first. Outflanked is a response card though to be played after battle cards.
In f2f, he would have played 12 pounders and then I would have played Outflanked before he had a chance to roll.
In PBEM it is harder. I tried to warn him that I may have responses and adim knows the game, so he could have waited after he played 12-pounders for me to play a response. He chose not to. I played the card at the first opportunity I had.
1035 2/10/2020 2:19:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message As the card says youz would be right adim. But this game was not designed for online play. How Farell could have played the card if you roll rigth after playing the card and there is no chance of a reaction. That is no reproach, we cannot wait nor ask for every possible reaction if we ever want to finish the game. But in this case the wording of the card would not work So I would Farrell have its card played and your one voided.
Also you as active nation have to play battle cards first then in Order of movement, so you should have played your card before asking Farell for battle cards which would have given him the opportunity to respond.
1034 2/10/2020 1:33:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message I'm willing to wait on Michael, but I don't see why it wouldn't. 12 pounders is a battle card. Outflanked cancels all played battle cards. I also did say that I might have a response card to play.
1033 2/10/2020 1:22:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message im not sure if outflanked cancels Twelve pounders (as they take effect before battle), but perhaps so, and I am sure michael will tell us that. if he agrees, i agree. i think you are right on the die count
1032 2/10/2020 12:16:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Event #27: 4 / Outflanked
Side of your choice gains one battle die. All played battle cards in this round of battle are voided and discarded. Must be played prior to combat resolution.

Message from Austria:
You don't need a battle card when you roll like that, so lets get rid of it.
And your total for austria was wrong to begin with
11 units (10AU +leader) + 2 leader + 1 National Bonus = 14 dice. Minus 3, would have ben 11 dice. You rolled 10.
So with this even, Austria would get 1 missed die, 3 recovered units, +1 for Outflanked = 5 more dice.
Agree?
1031 2/10/2020 9:58:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message You don't need to help... Farrell gets help from the French... he gets Venice, Milan and Rome in exchange for Sofia and Istanbul.. he just has to ask nice :)
1030 2/10/2020 7:59:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message I have nothing to help
1029 2/10/2020 3:45:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message the result is

Roll four extra battle dice before the next battle round. Casualties inflicted do not return fire. Losses are considered battle casualties but do not prevent next round of battle from taking place - even if one side is eliminated.

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.

1013 2/8/2020 2:21:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Farrell:

Great plan for you, but are you going to have Massina and blake evade battle as I move up to take Venice and other italian keys? Otherwise we have to fight a big battle and Nappy is still on my door step.
963 2/3/2020 12:43:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Farrell: I have a plan for you. I will take Russian and Turkish keys this turn -- no loss to you. You go ahead and take some Italian keys from me. Hopefully we each gain a little keeping BR and RU down :)

Anyway, Turkey is up

I don't have a plan right now :)
961 2/2/2020 8:53:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Tobey - takes 2CP to do that amphib assault, and not worth doing unless your sending 4RU. Even then, fight would be 5 vs 7, likely to lose and then suffer attrition returning to Sevastopol. I wouldn't go that route.

Still just think to build up, then go overland to Constantinople.

Up north, you'll have problems if you don't take care of Kliest. As to offense elsewhere, you two need to figure it out.
