441 1/16/2020 3:35:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message If the Nappy card had just rolled average, it would be a totally different game.
440 1/16/2020 3:33:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message i suspected that -- and my attack on Vienna was my only chance to avoid it. 19 dice to 15 was an OK bet but no guarantee, especially as i had no combat cards.

but dice went my way.

go ahead and start a new game for us. i can take either side
439 1/16/2020 3:20:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message sure.
Spain had Capitulation, I was trying to knock Austria out of the war. It was my last hope. Thats why I was so aggressive. It almost worked.
438 1/16/2020 3:19:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message well, i accept... fancy a rematch?

433 1/16/2020 3:10:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message 1k!

another Austrian bites the dust!

the French force is wiped out, Napoleon II and Davout go to hell, Vienna gets a free flag, Kyoot rolls for loot (and gets it, as before), Sweden plays Tipping the Scales, rolls her five and spends it on Turkey as stated before

422 1/15/2020 2:57:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message (depending on the result of this second round, i may have to take back the BR and SW response cards)
421 1/15/2020 2:56:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message That's a damn good card. The coalition rolled a 4k3d which now just becomes 4k. you rolled 1k3d. so the first round of battle is a draw. and we go onto the second round, this time without terrain effects. so you have 10 dice and i have 15 dice. you could still win this battle. :)

there will be no battle cards from me. you can play your combat card(s) if any, then roll.

yes, i have had a portion of good luck in this game. but your position isn't by any means bad.

you are right, of course, that the game is designed to give coalition ever more increasing power, so every turn becomes more difficult for France. but cards can really make a difference. if you have a lousy hand, just try to hang on to survive the turn, as i just did in Pyramides, and hope for a better hand next round.

and dont let lady luck get you down!
420 1/14/2020 3:03:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #20: 6 / Rally!
Void all "5" disrupt results thus far against one side in the current battle AFTER seeing the dice results. Voids a just played Panic event if played prior to the resulting Attrition roll.

Message from France:
I can play this and get rid of 2disrupts which makes it 5 to 4, not as bad.
We can keep playing if you want. Its not just one bad roll, its been a series of them lately from the 6 units not showing up to one battle, to the double 6s against spain and its inability to take Lisbon. (I don't even think the siege has ever even made it to a round 2). The quick end to the Anglo War. Its been adding up.
I'm not entirely blmaing the dice because I am a novice when it comes to France and I'm sure I made mistakes, but the dice certainly didn't help.
As the game goes on, I feel that it gets worse for France and so if by turn 2 I'm already on the defensive then it won't get much better.
419 1/14/2020 2:32:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message I accept. :)

But I think you are rushing with the decision to quit. Just as I had a very nice battle and two very good cards, the same can happen to you.

the wonder of this game is how it can turn on a dime.

and in this it makes me think of life in general: you do the best you can, roll your dice, and see what happens. it is all about managing the results of the dice.

if you can void the rout and prevent the second battle, you should; if not, you are right, it will not make a difference. but i have to plant a lot of flags before i reach Paris. and that gives you plenty of time to rebuild and rally.
418 1/14/2020 1:09:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I could void the rout possibly but whats the point.
I think I should concede at this point. I gave it my best.

415 1/14/2020 3:43:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Sweden: Play Strategy card as Event #96: 2 / Tipping the Scales
Immediately following the Resource Gain attempt die roll of ANY Army Rout, roll a die. You may spend that many CPs on the Diplomatic Track to move any Consul(s) in either direction. A die roll of 6 is needed to break Pact status.

Message from Britain:
meanwhile, Sweden also has a response to the Russian roll of rout
414 1/14/2020 3:41:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Looks like the new battle will be fought with 18 dice for me versus 7 dice for you. do you concur? If so, you can roll them bones!

400 12/31/2019 4:59:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message hm...
tough call
you would have to consider
1) any combat cards you have (how likely are you to win the battle)
2) any event cards you have (do you hold capitulation or depot captured)
3) the possibility that I have a combat card/event that may cause a french rout
and then, of course, consult your gut and see if you are feeling lucky :)
399 12/31/2019 2:49:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I could have Davout try and intercept leaving 1 unit to cover retreat
then it would be 19 v. 14+1 for rough.
What do you think?

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

I guess the chance to convert 4 disrupts to kills is worth it.
