Roll a die. That many enemy Units/leaders of their Commander's choice do not appear in the first round of battle and are unaffected by losses therefrom. If the battle is lost, they must retreat with the survivors of the battle. If no Units/leaders remain to give battle, none is fought and they retreat. If a second round is fought, they participate normally.

If Russia is not a Subject Neutral or in a Foreign War AND no enemy Forces are in a Russian Home Duchy: draw two cards and play one of them, OR Roll a die and gain a Resource if you roll less than the current Turn number. Otherwise, build Units equal to the roll. RESERVE

Message from Britain:
Russia will draw 2 and play 1
382 2/17/2020 7:55:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #34: 3 / Bravest of the Brave

378 2/17/2020 7:36:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Event #903: 6 / Admiralty
Britain draws two cards if its Fleets control six Zones at the start of its Impulse. Voided by Bey of Algiers or if Britain is a Subject Neutral. RESERVE

Message from Britain:
May play another card after I draw 2 from this Reserve card.
377 2/17/2020 6:33:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message France won't play its reserve to stop this.
376 2/17/2020 12:56:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Correct, you would not be able to preempt, but since the Russian Reaction technically occurred during the French turn (so the British could control 6 sea zones at the beginning of their Impulse), I believe you would be able to play a + card (Reserve or Resource - 5.12) to continue your turn after the Reaction if you really wanted to.
375 2/17/2020 12:12:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message I can't react to that far as I know since,

1. A side can't take two turns in a row.

2. Even if I could I don't have preempt.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
374 2/17/2020 11:24:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Russia: Play Strategy card as Event #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 Britain:
At the end of the French Card Play, and Before it becomes Britain's impulse, the Russians will react with this card to allow BR to make 3 naval maneuvers:

1. BR SQ from WMED to TYS.
2. 1 of 2 BR SQ from BoB to MAO (other remains in BoB).
3. BR SQ from North Sea to Skag.

Now BR controls six sea zones.

Does France wish to play a Reserve or Resource to react to this or can BR start it's impulse and play it's Admiralty Reserve?
373 2/17/2020 8:58:00 AM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #50: 2 / Unguarded Approach
Void all Attrition and combat penalties for crossing one Pass, Rough or Strait. Event may be played after Attrition rolls or shore battery fire to void those results but not after battle dice to avoid land battle losses. A Fleet crossing a fortified strait may use this event to void shore battery fire.

Message from France:

If enemies, France and Russia ponder a one-Impule Armistice. If accepted, Russia controls Nystadt and Sveaborg with no Diplomatic Track effects. Russia draws two cards and all Russian Formations and Swedish Forces not in their Home Duchies Regroup. If not accepted or apllicable, this event is 6 CPs for the nation that played it and remains in the game.

Russia will go ahead and decline the Truce, so 6 CP's for Turkey and event remains in the game:

1. Flag Naples back to BR.
2. Flag Marseilles to TU. Squadron flushed out to WMED; BR will NOT attempt to intercept.
3. Ali Pasha to Marseilles.
4. Flag Languedec.

Message from Britain:
Austria will react with this card to cancel the Tipping of the Scales card and put Prussia back at AU friend and Sweden back at BR Aide.

Now back to the rest of the AU turn.

3. John flags Milan
4. John +2 to Milan.
5. John Flags Romagna
6. +1 Venice to Milan

Does France want to preempt before moving on to Russia?

How far do the scales tip?
291 2/3/2020 6:53:00 AM 1809-1810 France France: 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 France:
French retreat to Genoa

Play this in response. Seems that this should be played when winning a battle but the card goes out of its way to say ANY rout.

Where would you like Soult, Ney +3 to retreat too?

288 2/1/2020 2:10:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message 1 more k which will turn this into a route with 6 total FR loses and 1 TU loss.

Before we roll for the Resource gain, want to check in with you and see if you have any reaction cards to play that would change the outcome?
