151 11/10/2019 11:15:00 AM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #904: 5 / Napoleon
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

Message from France:
1: CU Connaugh to Dublin
2: Flag Dublin

Brits could intercept. I won't evade and I have no cards to play.
150 11/10/2019 11:10:00 AM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #13: 6 / Ireland Revolts
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.

Roll a die. If your roll greater than the number of Enemy Forces in Spain, Lisbon, Oporto, and Gibraltar, draw two cards. You must play one of them. Otherwise, draw a card which you may play or keep. Not playable in 1805. RESERVE

Place one Unit and a Flag of this nation in any unoccupied enemy Port of any Zone controlled by this nation's Camp. This Port cannot be a Fortress.

Message from Russia:
Russia will flip Turkey from +1 to normal and move move Turkey to Friend on the Diplomatic Track. Prussia is next.
145 11/10/2019 8:29:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Thanks Tom.
144 11/10/2019 7:57:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message I did Austria's move in Vassal.

Note: Austria (and everyone else at this point) can still take a turn by spending its resource to draw a card. Since spending a resource is a + play you could then immediately play the drawn card. Or hold it. If you hold it you would have to play it on your following turn.

The cost is that unspent resources are worth 1VP.

Russia is up.
143 11/9/2019 6:13:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Russia next I believe
142 11/9/2019 6:12:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #107: 3 / Relief Convoy
A nation of your choice may use three naval maneuvers now. Double the number of dice of a Fortress Port as long as a friendly Squadron controls that Zone. Play in response to a siege resolution only adds dice, not changes them. Retain faceup beneath the controlling Squadron and discard when the conditions are no longer met.

Message from Austria:
If someone can update the Vassal log for me Im out of town w/o a laptop. Trying to get my turn in from memory.

140 11/9/2019 5:50:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #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:

139 11/7/2019 7:22:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Sorry. That was for my Hammer the Scots game. Still waiting for England in this one.

137 11/7/2019 5:38:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Weren't we going to aim to play at least card a day?

135 11/4/2019 6:34:00 AM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #70: 4 / Armistice
Forces may not enter enemy Duchies. This does not prevent ongoing sieges or sea battles from occurring, nor the flagging/unflagging of an already occupied space. Voided by War Without End event.

Message from France:
1: Flag Naples
2-3: build CU in Milan
4: Regroup CU to Paris

Note that regroups have to be to home duchies (the solid colored ones).

Britain's turn.
134 11/4/2019 6:26:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message All the other minors only have their Reserve card so are done for the turn.

Spain will pass.
133 11/4/2019 6:25:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Prussia does not have more CU in Berlin than its best unbuilt leader so will build 3 CU.

Next time they will build a leader, unless the card is an event of course.
132 11/4/2019 6:24:00 AM 1805-1806 France Prussia: Play random Strategy card #62: 6 / Council of War

Message from France:
You can tell what nation's turn it is by just following the sequence track at top left of the map. Only thing that changes it is preempt and no one has it.

Prussia still has 3 cards to play so is up.
131 11/4/2019 2:04:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #58: 2 / Bypass Stronghold
You may use two CPs to move your Formations past an enemy Fortress without stopping or Attrition subject to normal battle and interception requirements.

Message from Russia:
Move Bagration 2 spaces from Lublin to Moravia. Russia is done. Not sure who is next.

129 11/3/2019 12:21:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #25: 5 / Panic!
The loser of any battle suffers Attrition to all surviving (including disrupted) Units/leaders prior to any rout resolution. Any Attrition losses suffered inflicted are assessed first to non-disrupted Units/leaders and contribute to possible rout conditions. This event can be voided by play of the Rally or Rear Guard events prior to the Attrition roll.

Message from Austria:
2: Build 1 in Linz
4: Build 1 in Salzburg
5: Turkey consul slides to Austria and flips to +1
128 11/3/2019 12:06:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #901: 6 / Hussars and Grenzers
Only Austrian flages can be placed in Austria by CP expenditure until the next scheduled Austrian Impulse. Until then, all Austrian interceptions and evasions succeed - including one failed just prior to the play of this event. Any CP expenditure for a flag placement rejected by the play of this event is forfiet. RESERVE

Message from Austria:

Message from Britain:
123 10/30/2019 7:24:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message The result in Rome was a French flag overrun 1/3 vs. 0/0.

If Rome had been flagged British it would become French flagged for free.

Lannes and his army could continue to move since it was an overrun but I'd have to have more CPs, which I don't.

So French are done and Britain to play.

118 10/29/2019 12:25:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Note that France does not have preempt currently since I have 3 cards and so does Russia. After Russia plays one France will have preempt again (unless I play one in a battle or response in the meantime).
117 10/29/2019 12:20:00 PM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #39: 3 / Stragglers
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 France:
Sweden and Danes are done for the turn unless they somehow get a card. Reserves aren't played for neutrals.

If Britain has a card it wants to play in Portugal feel free. I just resolved to speed things along. Britain generally has more important things to do than waste resources in Spain on turn 1. Like build and army and buff up the fleet. Britain is by far the toughest naval power but it's not easy holding 6 sea zones when any one can be contested by the pesky French and Spaniards.

1: Lannes +2 to Romagana (can't be intercepted)
2: Lannes +3 to Tuscany
3: Lannes +3 to Rome to fight the British invaders

Brits could attempt to evade. If they fight it's F: 7 B: 2

Then Brits are up.

A nation of your choice must Regroup Forces/Squadrons equal to a die roll. If unable to do so, it must instantly build enough to Regroup or Submit. Flags can be removed for compliance, but they must be markers - not inherent flags. A Neutral Proxy removes Flags, Units, Leaders, and Squadrons in that order. If needed, a Neutral Proxy uses randomly drawn cards from its hand to build Units and will then use its Resources and/or Reserve in that order if necessary.
