24 5/28/2020 11:15:00 AM Turn 1 Anti-French Message I saw this coming and new the game was over.

Do you want to start another game? We can stay the same sides or change? I would prefer the same side but open to the change.
23 5/27/2020 3:49:00 PM Turn 1 Anti-French Message Under the clarified interception rules, the BR would only be able to try interception with 2 fleets. The BR will decline any interception attempt.
22 5/26/2020 6:57:00 PM Turn 1 Pro-French Message To refresh my memory, a fleet consisting of a damaged SP squadron, a SP squadron and a SP transport are entering the English channel and that is where the interception take place?

Actually that fleet first sailed to a now unblockaded Brest "picked up" the French fleet stationed there as per pg 45 F.11 and then sailed to from Brest to the North Sea zone refer to pg 41 F.2.e
(Note the English Channel is not a Sea Zone for the purposes of this game.)
21 5/26/2020 10:50:00 AM Turn 1 Anti-French Message To refresh my memory, a fleet consisting of a damaged SP squadron, a SP squadron and a SP transport are entering the English channel and that is where the interception take place?
20 5/26/2020 10:24:00 AM Turn 1 Pro-French Message Another interception attempt possible in the North Sea. I will await your decision to intercept. Note only fleets which have not already been forced to retreat from prior naval battles may attempt to intercept.
19 5/23/2020 9:09:00 PM Turn 1 Pro-French Message At first I thought John was saying the fleet does not return to Brest after the interception but after Brian's reply, John seems to be washing his hands of the whole issue and leaving it up to the players to decide. Thoughts?
18 5/23/2020 9:09:00 PM Turn 1 Pro-French Message At first I thought John was saying the fleet does not return to Brest after the interception but after Brian's reply, John seems to be washing his hands of the whole issue and leaving it up to the players to decide. Thoughts?
17 5/22/2020 9:55:00 AM Turn 1 Pro-French Message Will remove the 2nd Pt Squadron in the next file.

Yes I would prefer to see what he says.

Can you confirm whether the English fleet 1 damaged and 1 undamaged English squadrons retreat to Plymouth or not?
16 5/22/2020 9:19:00 AM Turn 1 Anti-French Message We will have to correct the PT squadrons in the next file. I am curious to see Gant's answer.
15 5/21/2020 11:09:00 AM Turn 1 Pro-French Message I assume you retreat the 1 damaged and 1 undamaged English squadrons from the recent naval battle to Plymouth right? Let me know if this is incorrect.

To me I do not think a fleet should be able to search 2 different sea zones in the same phase. I have posted a question to BGG to check.

Errata
GCG P.2.b should read “At Lisbon: ... 1S, 1T (Pt)” Currently lists “2S”.

NOTE: This was added to the errata sheet on 5/18/20 that should appear in the files section within a day or so.

Looks like there are too many Pt Squadrons on the map should be only 1.
14 5/21/2020 8:31:00 AM Turn 1 Anti-French Message My understanding us that those squadrons could NOT attempt an interception for the same squadrons/fleets. They could attempt interception of other fleets/squadrons.

FYI - on boardgamegeek there is an arrata listing.
13 5/19/2020 7:02:00 PM Turn 1 Pro-French Message Interception rolls need to be simultaneous and the decision regarding whether other fleets should make an attempt should not be depend upon the results of whether another fleet was successful or not
The fleets in this era had no way of communicating with each other to notify them whether their interception attempt was successful or not.
Otherwise each successful interception attempt will need to be resolved as a separate battle.

It is also preferable to confirm the odds and any modifiers before rolling for the battle as I did when I attacked the blockading fleet at Corunna.

Note there are only 2 Spanish squadrons in the Pr-French fleet so the odds are 1:1 -1, so 6-1 =5, L=D, S=R
Both sides have 1 damaged squadron and English fleet must retreat.

Now that the English Fleet in Brest has attempted to intercept in the Atlantic Ocean, I presume it can no longer make interception attempts to in the North Sea this turn, correct?
I want to confirm this before I continue my move.
12 5/19/2020 10:50:00 AM Turn 1 Anti-French Message Result is 0/K

1 BR squad sunk
Per naval damage table, remaining BR fleet has 1 damage
Will retreat to Portsmouth

Will let you do log file with these battle results and any other Pro-French movement
