334 5/31/2020 1:25:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Message All true, but *I* was lucky early (no Indians, tons of reinforcements, and an early arrival for Wolfe), so I may have gotten a bit complacent thinking I had the material to reach a decision through attrition. In a way, I think the bad dice were a punishment for hubris. :-D
333 5/31/2020 1:08:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Thanks for the game Dave! Honestly, I feel a little embarrassed by the inordinate amount of luck I had. We had four major battles that I won in every case; the first two were 50-50 affairs; the last one would have been nearly 50-50 if you rolled anything but a 1 in the previous battle. On top of that, I've seen had as more Indian, Regular, and replenishment cards & higher rolls for the French than any game I've seen before.
332 5/31/2020 12:16:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Drop 1xReg in Venango, continue to French Creek.

At this point, I don't see the possibility of a win ... not that I had one before this card play, but it just took me an extra card to realize it.

I concede. Well played, and you can report the results to Keith.
331 5/30/2020 11:57:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Sounds good about losses. Will confirm when I fire up my Vassal map for my next impulse.
330 5/30/2020 11:56:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message No reaction.
329 5/30/2020 11:45:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #44: 2 / Raise Regiments
May not be played if Assemblies Reluctant. Within Assemblies track limits, place 4 Northern or 2 Southern Provincial units at any fortifications in their Department, or restore all Provincials of one Department to full.

Message from Britain:
Activate Amherst.

Leaving 1xReg in Kittaning, move to Venango with 1xLI, 1xReg, and 1x(Reg). Reaction by the CdB in La Belle River?
328 5/30/2020 11:42:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Well, it would be a pain in the a$$ to figure out exactly which units I flipped this time around, so let me tell you what I have on my board, and if it seems kosher to you, good. If not, you tell me what you think I have before losses, and I'm pretty sure I'll just take your word and apply losses from there. In any case, I'll go ahead and play a card, because my odds of winning a battle at Crown Point seem pretty darn slim.

At Ticonderoga: Wolfe, Murray, Dunbar, Webb, Rangers, 2xHL, 2x(HL), 3x(LI), 3x(RA), 4x(Reg)
327 5/30/2020 9:09:00 AM 1759 Late Season Britain Message Ah, yes, I had it on my “board”, but not in a message. Ironic.

I’ll list it out later.
326 5/30/2020 1:20:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Also, Wolfe to assign 7 hits.

324 5/30/2020 1:19:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Oh yes -- Drucour et al to Crown Point.

322 5/29/2020 11:23:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Checking-in -- it's back to you.
321 5/26/2020 12:13:00 AM 1759 Late Season France Message Meant Bougainville not Rigaud.

There's no soft pedaling it --- I'm in a deep hole. Maintaining a LoS up the Mohawk seems like Mission Impossible.
