431 4/20/2020 5:59:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Yeah, that was a hell of a game, well played. I thought I might have managed to pull out at least a tie there, but I couldn't hit all the rolls I needed.
430 4/20/2020 5:56:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I was hoping to get an Amphibious Landing this season, but no such luck. I wanted to send Wolfe to Quebec.
If Montcalm hadn't been killed early on, you would have definitely beat me.
429 4/20/2020 5:53:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message No, we can end it there. :)
GG, I was very worried I had run out of time there, especially after the Villiers heroics. Nicely played!
428 4/20/2020 5:52:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message 3/0

1/4 MD eliminated, VP to British +2

You can keep going to run up the score :P

Message from France:
All right, first the 1/4 MD will attempt to avoid to La Belle River
424 4/20/2020 5:49:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message It's going to come down to lots of avoid battle rolls, haha
423 4/20/2020 5:48:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #31: 3 / Cherokee Uprising
Play if Cherokees event has occurred. REMOVE British player must eliminate (as available, unbesieged) two Regular, one Southern Provincial, and all Cherokee (GREEN) Indian units (flip marker), and may not play Cherokees event.

Message from Britain:
I'll move Bradstreet up to French Creek to engage the 1/4 MD there.
This could come down to some Avoid battle rolls.
I could try my luck at trying to raid Caughnawaga & Mingo Town, but you could intercept in each.
422 4/20/2020 5:46:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message continue on to Venango, but drop off the 2/6 LI in OF.

I think I just weirdly interpreted the rules to be the 1vp for OF and Niagara to go along with the capturing and taking of the fort, but I certainly agree with your interpretation. I see it can go back and forth.
421 4/20/2020 5:37:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message VP to British +1
420 4/20/2020 5:37:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message 2/0

1/6 CdB eliminated, and you may continue moving

418 4/20/2020 5:34:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #60: 3 / Highlanders
If 1755 scenario, play only after 1758 or William Pitt. REMOVE Place four 4-4 Highland units and two leaders, if available, at any ports.

Message from Britain:
Send Bradstreet with force 2 x 3/4 reg, 2/6 LI, 2/6 R to Gist's Station, then OF for battle.
10+1 vs 1.
417 4/20/2020 5:30:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message We can roll that back and have the battle. I feel a little bad cheesing a VP like that when we're so close
416 4/20/2020 5:30:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Okay, thanks for clarifying. I thought that might have been there by mistake.
415 4/20/2020 5:29:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Ah, I see. You are correct on all counts. :)
Shouldn't have avoided battle. damn.
414 4/20/2020 5:28:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message I think the Oswego stockade got destroyed in a battle quite some time ago
413 4/20/2020 5:28:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message I'm afraid you can't intercept with your 2/4 (Reg)-- it's a lone auxiliary moving in wilderness
412 4/20/2020 5:28:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Does France still have a stockade in Oswego? I'm showing one there. Do you want to demolish it perhaps?
411 4/20/2020 5:27:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message I don't think the uncompleted fort affects my movement (not that I'd be moving further), and from 13.23 Whenever Niagara or Ohio Forks changes hands (becomes solely occupied by units and/or fortifications of the other side), the capturing side receives 1 VP
410 4/20/2020 5:27:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message and not that it matters now, but I left behind a 2/4 reg in Crowne Point who could intercept into Ticonderoga. sorry if I wasn't very clear on that.
409 4/20/2020 5:25:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message NE, 1/6 CdB goes home to Montreal

Message from France:
Raid at Ticonderoga
407 4/20/2020 5:25:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message OF is under construction. I don't think you get VPs for that, but nor does it stop your movement.
406 4/20/2020 5:24:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message 1/6 CdB at Green Mountains South will also infiltrate to Ticonderoga to raid
405 4/20/2020 5:24:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message NE, 0/6 (CdB) eliminated

Message from Britain:
Attempt to avoid battle to Gist's Station.
400 4/20/2020 5:15:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Damn, that sucks.
That was a heroic stand, indeed!
Eliminate a 1/4 NP as my loss.
399 4/20/2020 3:58:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #6: 3 / Surrender!
Play in place of a roll on the Siege Table. At Louisbourg, you must already have Siege 1 or 2. Capture the fort or fortess intact. Enemy player places defenders at his closest unbesieged fortification.

NOTE: The deck will be reshuffled before next turn's cards are dealt.

Message from France:
The dice have been extraordinarily kind to me!

Activate 0/6 (CdB) at Adirondacks South, 1/6 CdB at Green Mountains South, and 1/6 CdB at Venango

First, 1/6 CdB at Venango will move to Ohio Forks to offer battle at 1 vs 4-5 -1

Winooski

British roll, 13-16+2
French roll, 1+1
394 4/20/2020 3:43:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Guess I'll just push forward with the entire force (less a 2-4 reg) with Wolfe to engage Villiers.
13-16 +2 vs 1+1

393 4/20/2020 3:41:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Yeah, no worries
392 4/20/2020 3:35:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Crap. thanks for that. I really botched that move.
I think I might just do something completely different then this activation. Sorry.
391 4/20/2020 3:21:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message After a BGG search, I found an answer. Johnson can't get to the Caughnawaga settlement because he has to move through Montreal, and per 6.53 Leaders moving alone cannot enter an enemy-occupied space [which includes unbesieged fortifications, btw]
390 4/20/2020 3:18:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Bradstreet can't accompany your Rangers because he has to be activated as a force

Also, are enemy units/fortifications no hindrance to leader movement? I don't see anything in the rulebook either way
389 4/20/2020 3:06:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #27: 2 / Western Indian
Play if you have fort at Ohio Forks. Place ORANGE or--if you have a fort at Niagara-- BLUE/ORANGE Indian units totalling half a die roll (rounded up), or a full roll if French VP >4. Place units at their settlements. For every 1 you could place, you may instead restore 2 to full.

Message from Britain:
Activate Johnson to move to Caughnawaga.
Activate 1/6 Mohawk at OCE to move to Caughnawaga.
Activate Bradstreet and 2/6 R from Laurel Ridge S and move to Mingo Town.
388 4/20/2020 2:24:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Play Strategy card as Operations #5: 1 / Bastions Repaired
Replace a Siege 1 or Siege 2 marker on the map with Siege 0. (You must use a whole Action Phase to play this event.)

Message from France:
Activate Villiers to move alone

Villiers will move to Winooski to participate in a retreating action
387 4/20/2020 2:01:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Ouch. Yeah, I think you probably needed the operations (although a success would have hurt me quite a bit potentially)
386 4/20/2020 1:49:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I knew this might be a bad move. :(

On a roll of 3-6, randomly draw one card from opponent's hand and place it in your own.

No intercept, and Johnson will move to Sorel.

2x1/6 Caughnawaga to Ile-aux-Noix
1/6 Abenaki to Winooski, you may intercept with Rangers unit (and a leader if you wish)

Guess it was automatic with Wolfe. Yes, I will assault please.
369 4/20/2020 11:05:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Not too buggered up, you can still assault immediately since you're sieging a fort not a fortress
368 4/20/2020 7:55:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Bugger. Siege 1 placed.

bradstreet moves to Gist's St, then to Laurel Ridge S for battle.
You can avoid.
It will be 9-12 +1 vs 2 +1.
350 4/19/2020 1:46:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Gee, I'm sorry to be too revisionist, but I think I'll also remove the French Creek and Presqu'ile stockades as well. Don't really need those after OF goes down do I...
349 4/19/2020 1:15:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message You can activate someone other than Bradstreet if you wish; moving him to Laurel Ridge S is a bit less appealing with the stockade gone
348 4/19/2020 1:14:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Okay, thanks. It got captured on your impulse and I kinda forgot about deleting it (though it is clearly what I would want to do)

346 4/19/2020 11:42:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Mmm, am I able to remove the stockade at Laurel Ridge S immediately after capturing it? If I can I would definitely do that, I don't want to give a VP back to you

337 4/19/2020 9:19:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I just remembered OF and Niagara are +1 VP, so VPs should go to B+1 now.
