187 2/18/2020 3:44:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message yes, I am back :)

4 RU units in Grodno would be handy
186 2/16/2020 2:37:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Maciek... you are up to decide on Britains play. :-)
185 2/13/2020 2:35:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message yes, what turns and twists! i love this game.
184 2/13/2020 2:33:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Maciek: Britain will play Call up the next class in your favor. Where do you want the 4 units?
183 2/12/2020 3:56:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message A turn full of unexpected up and downs for France. Britain is up.
182 2/12/2020 3:51:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Should have been played as event.
181 2/12/2020 3:50:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 3 / Descent from the Sea
Place one Unit and a Flag of this nation in any unoccupied enemy Port of any Zone controlled by this nation's Camp. This Port cannot be a Fortress.

Message from France:
Danes had some french soldiers on board, sneaking inside Riga and taking control. That card turned out to be really a lucky draw for the ressource.
180 2/12/2020 2:04:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message no reponse
179 2/12/2020 6:17:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message maciek?
178 2/12/2020 4:53:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message That sucks. I dont have a response.
177 2/11/2020 3:23:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Note: Talleyrand was the play of Spain of course.
176 2/11/2020 3:23:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #65: 6 / Talleyrand
Move any Consul on the Diplomatic Track two boxes and add 1 to the Peace die roll this Turn. OR Add 2 to the Peace die roll this Turn. This event may break Pact status. Not playable in 1805.

Message from France:
Now Talleyrand can finalize the long planned pact by moving the consul two boxes. I thought this chance would never show up again after Metternich and Malet (and me misreading the log).

Peace die roll +3 now.

Any plays to spoil this again?
175 2/11/2020 3:19:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 5 / Orders in Council
Britain gains a Squadron (if available) and may convert Units/leaders into their CP cost equivalent for the sole purpose of buying available Squadron(s). All such Squadrons gained are placed in Regroup. A Neutral Proxy will play this event only if two or more British Squadrons have been eliminated (and not replaced).

Message from France:
4/5: Prussian consul to Aide

Can't use the last CP i think

174 2/11/2020 3:09:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Ok, i really hope this is ok for everyone. Thank you. Just noticed after playing that i misread the journal entry and thought both moved Prussia but it was just Austria.
173 2/11/2020 2:46:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message sure
172 2/10/2020 4:36:00 PM 1807-1808 France Return Strategy card to hand #65: 6 / Talleyrand

Message from France:
171 2/10/2020 4:36:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message No... cancel all that... i thought Russia moved the prussian consul, but it was the Ottomans... so France will preempt Spain to play a card and after that Talleyrand will be played as an event. I think this should be fine because no dice where rolled and no other nation played a card in between. Right?
170 2/10/2020 4:22:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message So peace will occur on a roll from 2-6 now, but there will be still some cards to burn.
169 2/10/2020 4:21:00 PM 1807-1808 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Event #65: 6 / Talleyrand
Move any Consul on the Diplomatic Track two boxes and add 1 to the Peace die roll this Turn. OR Add 2 to the Peace die roll this Turn. This event may break Pact status. Not playable in 1805.

Message from France:
Sadly Talleyrand never had the change to finalize the Franco-Prussian pact after Malet and Metternich sided against France... but now he will do his best the negotiate peace in Europe.
168 2/10/2020 3:38:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message correct on keys and VPs
i dont know why there are two russian files
167 2/9/2020 3:25:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message And why is there a second RU file?
166 2/9/2020 3:17:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Just to be sure that there are no mistakes/errors somewhere... current ranking would be:

France: +1 keys +1 emperor +2 pacts = +4
AU/RU: 0
Britain: -2 keys = -2

Europe is exhausted so peace will occur on a roll 4-6 excl. card modifiers.

Everything correct?
165 2/7/2020 1:59:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message France or Spain
164 2/6/2020 2:59:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #81: 6 / Napoleon Abdicates
Playable only with France's consent and if Napoleon is in play. Otherwise, play as 6 CPs. Regroup Napoleon, all French Forces not in French Home Duchies and all enemy Forces in French Home Duchies. France (but not its Pact allies) may not attack or be attacked until the next Turn when Napolon returns as a free reinforcement. If played during Turn 5, a 6th Turn is added. Voids Capitulation event vs. France.

163 2/6/2020 2:26:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #80: 4 / Nelson
British Fleet in battle may require either or both sides to reroll their battle dice. If the enemy dice are rerolled, Nelson is killed and this event is discarded out of the game.

161 2/6/2020 4:52:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #79: 4 / Leader Wounded
A leader of your choice is affect by this die roll: 1-2: lose one battle die for this Impulse, 3-5: void Battle Rating for this Impulse, 6: leader eliminated. The affected leader cannot be replaced in a current battle by a subordinate. Already rolled battle-dice cannot be lost. An Army/Army Group whose Commander has lost his Battle Rating can still intercept/evade, but must do so without his leadership modifier.

159 2/5/2020 5:24:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #904: 5 / Napoleon
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

Message from France:

Lannes +4 to Zurich
158 2/5/2020 5:19:00 PM 1807-1808 France Denmark: Play Strategy card as Operations #52: 5 / Crown Prince Bernadotte
Replace Gustavus with a Swedish Unit and Bernadotte or place them in Stockholm if Gustavus is not in play. Sweden is Unaligned. A Neutral playing this card on Turn 3 or later must play it as an event.

Message from France:
Was waiting for the pact to come but now it will better to keep the card in the game. In the end after the missed impulse i am happy that no pact was build, because that would have made it really messy to get this solved.

Prussia to neutral
Swedes to aide
157 2/5/2020 5:10:00 PM 1807-1808 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Operations #25: 5 / Panic!
The loser of any battle suffers Attrition to all surviving (including disrupted) Units/leaders prior to any rout resolution. Any Attrition losses suffered inflicted are assessed first to non-disrupted Units/leaders and contribute to possible rout conditions. This event can be voided by play of the Rally or Rear Guard events prior to the Attrition roll.

Message from France:
Castanos +3 to Madrid
1 CU to Madrid
Swedish consul back to normal

156 2/5/2020 4:56:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I meant that i totally forgot about them too, was not your responsibility.

154 2/5/2020 4:50:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I just noticed that the Danes were skipped last impulse. Was so tired and Adim wrote France, totally forgot about the Danes. Should i do them now just one round later?
153 2/5/2020 4:42:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message But prussia and turkey have no cards, so spain is next

151 2/5/2020 4:27:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message Prussia is next or France can preempt?
150 2/5/2020 4:25:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #61: 2 / Fire Ships
Each blockaded Squadron in a Port of your choice rolls a die: 6-sunk, 5-damaged. Mark each damaged Squadron with a Naval Build marker. Any Squadron already under a Refit/Build marker which is damaged is sunk instead. A -1 modifier applies to a Fortress. A +1 modifier applies to Refit or Naval Builds.

A leader of your choice is given two more Units of its nationality - even during battle. The added Units may exceed the Commander's Command Rating even if it is moved into the battle. Afterwards those Units would be subject to normal command restrictions. Can be played even AFTER seeing all battle dice for two extra die rolls in that battle.

105 2/2/2020 4:36:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Yeah, it was a great start to slow Britain so much down in a 4 player game. I was really happy with it, always wanted to try this. But after turning into a 3 player game it was not that good anymore because it spared a lot of AU/RUs now shared ressources and there will be no camp changing. Anyway, i see your point and i am curious to see whos analysis will be closer. If you stay out of France, i will not send more ships to prevent admirality for the rest of the turn.
104 2/2/2020 1:23:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Daniel, i think you are creating an uncalled sense of urgency. You control three powers -- and therefore 3 impulses per round -- and 10 cards. Maciek has two powers and 9 cards. I think you two are pretty well balanced at the moment. I really don't think you should ask me to spend a card to buy anything down to help you. I have one power and 4 cards and am at present down two keys/a card thanks to you. If you withdraw from the seas, I perhaps wont attempt a landing in France. I can agree to that.
103 2/2/2020 10:47:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I think your goal is to recover and get in a good position to claim the win. If you see a chance to win in this round, there would be no need to make a deal. But if you aim for keeping the game going for at least another round to get your chance it does not matter for you so much who is leading this round. That would be the ground for a deal. My primary goal is to be top at the end of this round to get maybe my last good chance to win this game. Next round will be a totaly different thing i guess with both of you on attack. I am thinking of you helping me downbuying the turkish diplomat to prevent that pact, maybe staying out my french backyard and i don't contest your naval surpremacy again this turn so you get a chance to rebuild your strength. What do you think?
102 2/2/2020 3:01:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Oh, yes, I did skip Spain, sorry. Well, I don't have any card I could play in your favor. What did you expect?
101 2/1/2020 6:35:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Spain is up now... you just skipped it. Spain and Danes could both try to make things harder for you. But i am still not sure if there would be an agreement that makes sense for both of us.
