172 1/23/2020 6:49:00 PM 1626-1627 Protestant Message Hi Gary
I've drawn my cards. My 6th card play was Ottomans raid, so Imperials are not auto-paid in Austria. Do you want to roll for them or do you want me to roll? Alternatively happy for you to pay for Austrians using money for one of the other stacks and roll for someone else ;)
Cheers

156 1/19/2020 6:19:00 PM 1624-1625 Protestant Message Tried to 'undo last card' but no luck - this is not listed as played, the card effectively disappears from the log :( One solution I can think of is that next time I play one-off card for event, I'll instead play it as activation and just mark it - so that I know next time it comes up it's actually the one I've misplayed...
155 1/18/2020 10:02:00 AM 1624-1625 Protestant Message Damn, I just played card as Aid by accident and the card is gone :/

Imperial units in Austria are not automatically paid this turn.

Message from Protestant:
Sorry, I won't have much of a chance to send a save file so will just play through ACTS. Playing my card for an event.

Assuming we're still playing with Pay done after final activation? Asking as in case you attack with Tilly and I retreat with Baden I'll still be able to pay for them (as after my 6th activation they were in range).
Thanks
