FR attack on 1 column. no DRM
BR defend on 22-27 column. no DRM
62 12/3/2019 12:42:00 PM 1757 Late Season France Message Hi Dan - know problem on slowing the pace of play. I also have Hannibal starting up and my PoG game is heating up. Feel free to make plays whenever you can, and don't feel rushed if i respond back with a play.

That was a pretty minor error. I know in Vassal sometimes 2 counters get selected and flipped at the same time.

There is a single Indian tribe attacking at HCS (sort of a suicide attempt I know, but hoping to reduce another regular). I will roll for it and then post the updated log.
61 12/3/2019 10:56:00 AM 1757 Late Season France Message Hi Dan, one minor correction on that last move. I will update the logfile after the battle in HCS:

change

52 12/3/2019 12:45:00 AM 1757 Late Season France Message I'm still at the first season...I guess unlike some other CDG's on ACTS we both have to End Turn.
51 12/3/2019 12:32:00 AM 1757 Late Season Britain Message Oops -- sorry about that!
50 12/3/2019 12:31:00 AM 1757 Late Season France Message Hi Dan - just took a look at the Vassal logs and 3 of my Indian tribes got flipped along with 3 regulars. I will flip 1 of the tribes back in the next log update.

Message from France:
BR/FR (attacker/defender) battle in HCN.

BR: 22-27
FR: 22-27 +1 DRM
44 12/3/2019 12:09:00 AM 1757 Early Season France Message ok, I'll stand and fight. I guess no additional card plays for either. I think defender rolls, so I'll go ahead with it.
43 12/3/2019 12:07:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message Yes, both of us on 22-27 column with you getting +1 DRM, and I think no penalty for failing on avoid.
42 12/3/2019 12:01:00 AM 1757 Early Season France Message these are the kind of decisions I find very difficult for the French in this game. I have a more than even chance of winning this battle, and picking up a VP....but, my reinforcement rate is just so low that even if I win these and move up on VPs, I risk not being able to hold 3 fortresses to prevent an auto loss.

Just to verify a few things before making the decision:

- we are both on the 22-27 column with me getting a +1 DRM, correct?

- i will successfully avoid on a roll of 3-6. If i fail the avoid i will need to battle, but there are no additional penalties, correct?


41 12/2/2019 11:14:00 PM 1757 Early Season Britain Message Remove Southern Provincial at Shepard's Ferry.
