293 1/21/2020 4:01:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message yes, map stays the same. ABU3 Three player has been set up and I advanced the turn to 1807, so all is set. you can delete this now
292 1/21/2020 3:41:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message But we keep the map as it is? Can we manually set the new game to turn 2?
291 1/21/2020 3:41:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message But we keep the map as it is? Can we manually set the new game to turn 2?
290 1/21/2020 3:26:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message I'll start a new 3-player game for us so that Maciek can have all his cards on one screen. Daniel, would you please end and delete this game (only France can do it)
289 1/20/2020 5:11:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message I will burn no card... no easy ending for France in turn one this time... i want to see where this game goes. ;-)
288 1/20/2020 5:06:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message sorry for misspelling - I meant Parliament :)
287 1/20/2020 5:04:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Agree to Pairlament deal - Austria will burn a card to modify peace die roll
286 1/20/2020 12:04:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Created a file with ship buildings. Map and tracks seem ok to me. Please check. Maciek decides on card burning.
285 1/20/2020 5:54:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Sorry, all the past games just came up in my mind and why i stopped playing 3 player TNW games. But i think i will at least give it another try after this one as BR again just to check how i would do this with much more experience now, failed badly as BR too back then. Maybe it's not that unbalanced, just a bigger challenge. ;-)
284 1/20/2020 5:35:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Daniel... i think i realize that...
283 1/20/2020 5:32:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message I think it's crucial to see this as a 1v1v1 not as a 2v1... camps are becoming less important because there are no switches. AU/RU are almost as strong as FR with a joint strategy, shared units and cards, so they don't need that much help. In all my previous games they easily steamrolled France once it got to weak and BR could just watch from the sideline.
282 1/20/2020 5:24:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message I think Britains strategy is really the key in this scenario. In all my previous games BR played like BR in a 4/5 player game and always gave the win to AU/RU in the end.
281 1/20/2020 5:23:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Daniel... maciek's too good of a player for me to hope for a win in this menage; but yes, this is interesting... in fact, it is my first 3P ever (in TNW, not in life) :) and i am glad to be part of it
280 1/20/2020 5:21:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Now the interesting part begins... at most for Britain, getting stronger, try to hurt France without giving to much power to AU/RU or maybe even hurt AU/RU a bit too. That will be a tough mission to balance all those things. BR can fight France directly but has almost no chance to stop AU/RU once they get in lead. Maybe this will be my first 3 player game with a different outcome, would be awesome. Even with a BR win. ;-)
279 1/20/2020 5:19:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message My question to Maciek stands, as he goes first to determine if he spends any cards
278 1/20/2020 5:19:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Daniel!
It isn't just more complete, it is also more correct! :)
277 1/20/2020 5:14:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Let's make this complete for a better overview and we also should check the map and all tracks if everything is correct in the latest file. :-)

FR: +Venice +Naples -Munich 0 resource 2 pacts = +3
BR: -Naples -Lisbon 0 resource 0 pacts = -2
AU/RU: +Munich -Venice 1 resource 0 pacts = +1
276 1/20/2020 5:13:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message If Maciek spends a card; and France spends a card, I will spend a card, too.
275 1/20/2020 5:12:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Maciek:

if you agree to spend a card to prevent French victory, I will give the power of your choice Parliament
274 1/20/2020 5:11:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Daniel, do you concur with the following:

Victory points:

France: +Venice +Naples 0 resources 1 minor = +3
BR: BR -Naples -Lisbon 0 resource = -2
AU/RU: -Venice resource 1 = +1

France has the roll

Peace on a die roll of 6

Anyone spend cards?
273 1/20/2020 5:10:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Sorry, we are doing stuff at the same time. Your roll if Wurtemberg came first, so your result stands
272 1/20/2020 5:09:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Did you create another file? That got a bit messed up now. So you made the final file of the turn?
271 1/20/2020 5:08:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message > Why Munich?

Sorry, stupid dyslexic me, I meant Wurtemberg
270 1/20/2020 5:07:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Victory points:

France: +Venice +Naples 0 resources 1 minor = +3
BR: BR -Naples -Lisbon 0 resource = -2
AU/RU: -Venice resource 1 = +1

France has the roll

Peace on a die roll of 6

262 1/20/2020 4:58:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #19: 2 / Split Squadrons
Cancel any prior interception result and engage a portion of an enemy Fleet of your choice in the same Zone (including Offboard) without evasion. Ignore the rest which do not participate in the same battle. May be played without an intercept attempt or after or before an intercept/evasion attempt regardless of outcome.

254 1/19/2020 4:59:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message So i guess that means no response and a battle as planned. Will resolve tomorrow morning and adjust map.
253 1/19/2020 11:43:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message nice play
252 1/19/2020 7:58:00 AM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #33: 3 / General's Health
Void the Battle Rating of any Commander for the rest of this Impulse (including its effect on any just-rolled intercept or evasion attempt). Subordinate Army Commanders may not substitute their rating for the stricken leader. Not applicable to the Nelson event or to rerolls of battle dice.

Message from France:
Kutuzov will watch the battle from the sideline.
251 1/19/2020 7:57:00 AM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #74: 4 / Turning Movement
One of your Armies may move two spaces without interception, Attrition or enemy evasion. It may pick up or drop off Units. Battle occurs only if you enter a space containing an enemy Formation. Turning Movement cannot occur through a Fortress or an enemy Formation unless that Formation is Overrun.

Message from France:
Let's try this... next turn will only get worse against AU/RU.

Napoleon +8 say hi to Kutuzov... no intercept or evasion. Another card will follow, BR might play a response. After that we will have likely a battle.

250 1/19/2020 7:51:00 AM 1805-1806 France Denmark: Play Strategy card as Operations #908: 4 / Gallant Danes
Danish Fleets have an intercept/evade level of 8, throw three Battle dice per Squadron, and may void one "6" in battle during this Impulse. The Danes may use four Maneuvers this Impulse even if Inactive. OR Draw a card. RESERVE

Message from France:
Danes build the second fleet
249 1/18/2020 4:12:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Ah, sorry, missed Macieks mail. Will make my Play tomorrow asap.

247 1/16/2020 3:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message pass
246 1/16/2020 9:11:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message (denmark can draw her card, then France is up then BR again)
245 1/16/2020 8:59:00 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:
Build 1BU in Cork, 1BU in Ulster
244 1/16/2020 4:12:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Ok, so BR is up...
243 1/15/2020 2:24:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Daniel

I am pretty sure the Danish card isn't a card but the national reserve. In which case you cannot preempt Denmark.

so it is either Denmark plays her reserve, or Denmark passes, then France can go. let us know

242 1/14/2020 4:39:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message does Denmark have a card, or does she have a reserve? if reserve, you cant preempt denmark, if card, of course you can

yes, i know that the AU/RU are a juggernaut

and i also know Maciek -- he is a damn good player :)
241 1/14/2020 3:49:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message No wait, i noticed i can play this as preemption before the Danes so i can play again, right?
240 1/14/2020 3:41:00 PM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #86: 3 / Patriotic Fervor
Select any nation without a card to draw a card from the deck.

Message from France:

Prussia +1
239 1/14/2020 3:37:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Danes will pass again
238 1/14/2020 3:35:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Will adjust ressources to BR 0 and AU 0
237 1/14/2020 3:27:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Will be interesting to see how Britain can recover while pushing France back without giving the win to AU/RU. So far all my 3 player games ended the same... AU/RU where unbeatable. So i stopped playing them for a long time until now. France and Spain can keep Britain in check or at least busy enough but a fighting a single player with doubled hands and units is almost impossible on the long run. AU/RU has such a big advantage in so many ways. Would be really awesome to see a different outcome this time.
236 1/14/2020 1:36:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 2 / General Staff
All unled Units of a nation of your choice have intercept/evashion capability as if led by a "1-4" leader. Such units have the ability to place and prevent placement of Flags like an Army but do not constitute an Army for purposes of a possible Resource gain if routed.

229 1/12/2020 12:59:00 PM 1805-1806 France Change Britain player Britain player changed from Daniel to adim
228 1/12/2020 12:29:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Maciek's decision is correct. AU/Ru is a really powerful option in a 3P game.

Daniel: pass BR to me and AU to Maciek.

at the end of this turn, we can restart the game as a 3-player
227 1/12/2020 11:40:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Message Sure, I can play as RU/AU
226 1/12/2020 9:57:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message hm, its a bit ironic, since we set this game up for Frank. but ok.

the easiest solution maybe to turn this game into a 3 player game. why dont we ask Maciek if he wants to take over AU/RU or BR. If Daniel agrees, I will take the other side of the position, and we can roll
225 1/4/2020 5:55:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Corrected the last file and replaced FR flag with SP in Lisbon. The rest seems fine.

Do you know another player who will step in?
224 1/4/2020 5:51:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Woah, had no time check emails earlier and now this. Got distracted with my health issues over the last days and forgot to create a new file for those small things. How to go on now?
223 1/4/2020 12:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Change Britain player Britain player changed from Frank Riskey to Daniel
222 1/4/2020 12:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message I meant to write that the key track is not up to date. Have a good game.
221 1/4/2020 12:54:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Changes made to the log file:
-Lisbon flagged as French.
-Key track updated, Spanish up one, Britain down 1.
-Resource track updated, France expended his 1, so has 0.

I don't think the resource track is correct; it wouldn't surprise me that it has not been updated turn by turn.

I resent having to do log files for the other players, and I don't enjoy the sloppy play. I am in more than one PBEM game and depend on the players to keep the game state correct.

I added this log file then resign.
220 1/4/2020 2:01:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Frank
the only thing that happened since Russia's log file is that Lisbon fell to the Spanish. (Denmark passed and France burnt resource to draw a card). You can make that small change as part of your logfile.
219 1/3/2020 10:48:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message France, I don't see your log file on Dropbox.
218 1/3/2020 11:23:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Ok, will not use + ability, Britain is up.
