240 2/16/2020 11:24:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message Well, nuts. I got confused because Iím playing multiple games, and thought I was Britain in this game, not France. I thought the die modifier was to add to the required roll, not the die. I feel better knowing even if I spent, it didnít matter.

Good game. If we play again, I need to quit being France, because Iím too slow bringing Napoleon East. I liked my events too much, and shouldíve just played for CP.
239 2/16/2020 7:38:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Good game Ken.

236 2/15/2020 8:49:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message France, after you decide whether to give up a card or not, let me do the roll. I don't want to rely on anyone else's luck. Thanks, all.
235 2/15/2020 6:28:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Not spending

231 2/15/2020 4:24:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Nope. My bad. Looks like Russia for the win.
230 2/15/2020 4:06:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Didnít Russia spend their resource?
229 2/15/2020 3:52:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message I think the Points are (ĪKeys/Pacts/Rescources):
France -1+2+0 = +1
Britain +2+0+0 = +2
Austria -1+0+1 = 0
Russia +1+0+1 = +2
So Russia has the roll. Anyone agree with the above?
And Europe is already Exhausted, so there is a +1.
In last place, I will not spend a card draw.
I suspect Russia will.
I suspect France won't.
Britain might.
228 2/15/2020 3:45:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message and Oporto needs to roll 1 die of attrition.

223 2/15/2020 2:59:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #55: 3 / Papal Bull
Place a Unit and Flag (even if already flagged by an ally) in one friendly or unoccupied Duchy in or adjacent to Rome. OR Spend 5 CPs on the Diplomatic Track to influence any nation(s) other than Ottoman Turks but never during the first round of 1805.

Message from Britain:

222 2/15/2020 2:31:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message When we do the dispositions I'll probably get squared. Maybe I'll win before that,

1-2: Flag Ratisbon and Munich
3-4: Prussian consul to Neutral
Britain up
220 2/15/2020 2:26:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Yes Prussia to Neutral. My chart was way off. Even after being sent the correct data I still didn't get it right. So I moved to Linz as shown before then move Prussia to Neutral. Britain, move it up as far as you can too. Sorry I'm so bad about getting my map updated.
219 2/15/2020 1:41:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Are you sure you donít want to take Prussia down a notch? France could preempt before we get to go!
218 2/15/2020 1:10:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message OK. Build a boring old unit in Grodno.
217 2/15/2020 6:42:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Ken,
Turkey is Unaligned+1 to Britain.
Sweden is Unaligned.
Prussia is French Friend.
216 2/15/2020 12:12:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #17: 4 / The Weather Gauge
Automatically intercept an enemy Fleet in your Zone at no cost with no possibility of evasion. Each of your Squadrons throws an additional battle die in the ensuing battle. OR: Automatically evade (even after failing an evasion dice roll) and enter any friendly Port in that Zone or exit that Zone (unless offboard) without interception.

Message from Russia:
1-2: Flag Ratisbon and Munich
3-4: Move the Turkish consul up a notch.
Done.
215 2/14/2020 7:56:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message So Russia had Weather Gauge and Nelson, Britain had Fleet in Irons. I definitely should have built a 2nd Dane Squad instead of picking a fight in the North Sea.

Bah.

Russia turn.
214 2/14/2020 7:54:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message > I hadn't gotten around to flagging Ratisbon yet so you can unflag something else.

Oh, hell. I thought it was flagged. There's nothing left to unflag. Bad play on my part.

My Roman retreats to Tuscany.

213 2/14/2020 7:02:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Austria passes.
212 2/14/2020 7:00:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message > I hadn't gotten around to flagging Ratisbon yet so you can unflag something else.

Yeah, like Venice!

209 2/14/2020 6:08:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #44: 3 / Fleet in Irons
Void a Maneuver, evasion or interception by any one Fleet or Grand Fleet (even after making/failing an evasion/interception dice roll). Any Maneuver used is expended and that Fleet must pay double for further Maneuvers in this Impulse. A voided evasion does not penalize that Fleet in battle for a failed evasion attempt.

208 2/14/2020 5:02:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Austria: I am sure you will see the folly of trying to flag Munich. No extra card against Napoleon for you while cutting one against Napoleon for me.
207 2/14/2020 4:54:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message I hadn't gotten around to flagging Ratisbon yet so you can unflag something else.
206 2/14/2020 4:39:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Truly sorry. Walked away and said, "Wait!". Don't flag Oporto, Cast/2 to Badajoz so I don't have end-of-turn attrition!
205 2/14/2020 4:38:00 PM 1805-1806 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Operations #910: 5 / Peninusula Campaign
Roll a die. If your roll greater than the number of Enemy Forces in Spain, Lisbon, Oporto, and Gibraltar, draw two cards. You must play one of them. Otherwise, draw a card which you may play or keep. Not playable in 1805. RESERVE

Message from France:
I'm just going to play Spain now. If you protest, I can take it back.

Build 2 in Madrid. Flag Oporto. Decline to siege.
204 2/14/2020 4:35:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Argh! I accidentally skipped Spain! Can I play it or too late?
203 2/14/2020 4:35:00 PM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #60: 2 / Nationalist Uprisings
Remove Flags from any two non-Fortress Duchies. This event is not usable against an "inherently flagged space" controlled only by the color of the spaced. The removal of flags by this event is not interceptable.

Message from France:
Remove flags in Munich and Ratisbon. Not very useful, but it requires Russia to reflag.

Austria could play their resource. They could snake the Munich key from Russia, thus fracturing the alliance and allowing an ultimate French victory! Wait, did I say that last part out loud?
202 2/14/2020 4:32:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Denmark/Spain at French Pact

201 2/14/2020 2:24:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Russia: 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.

Message from Russia:
1-4: Bagration + 4 and Konstantin from Lublin (leaving 0) through Krakow and Moravia (leaving 0 each), and on through Vienna (leaving 2 Aus) to Linz; now Bagration + 4, Konstantin, and Ferdinand + 3.
Done.

Where are the consuls now?
200 2/14/2020 10:17:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Pass.

198 2/13/2020 10:08:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Bruce,
The Prussian consul doesn't have a +1. It is just French Friend.
197 2/13/2020 9:58:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Austria could spend her resource.
196 2/13/2020 9:55:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #109: 5 / Scum of the Earth
All Units/leaders lost due to disruption in a Rout (not those killed by 6's) are sent to Regroup instead of being eliminated. Any Resource ained by this Rout is lost.

Rotterdam is equidistant.
192 2/13/2020 9:34:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Well, poop. I guess the Danes are now in Stavenger, as that's the closest port. Hmm. I'd've probably been better off buying a 2nd SQ.

Back to France....
2-3: Build 1u Rome
4-6: Move Prussian consul, from Austria unaligned +1 to French Friend.

Message from France:
I was hesitant to play "Mud" because I had faint hopes of holding this until turn 2. I think if I had given up hope early in the turn, I would have done better.

1: Flag Venice.

176 2/13/2020 12:25:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Spain has only her Reserve, and therefore cannot be preempted.

170 2/13/2020 7:21:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message Pass. Which doesn't count as taking an Impulse.
On the other hand, expending a Resource *does* count as taking an Impulse, therefore Britain cannot preempt Russia because that would be two British impulses in a row.
