141 5/29/2020 6:01:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Ken,
I suggest 3 Austrians from Linz because they can return to the fight easier than Russians.
And then how about 1 of each from Venice, that way we still get the +1 mostly Power bonus but there are still a few Turks to catch cannonballs?

Roll three dice. The Russian transfers a leader plus Units equal to the least of the three rolls to this Foreign War card. Another Unit draft is rolled and filled from the Turn's Reinforcements - or elsewhere - in each Interphase until the War ends. Void if Turkey is Client of Russian Camp.

Turks or preempt?
122 5/28/2020 2:05:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message No reaction.
121 5/28/2020 2:03:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message France has no response to the Turk pact (beside pouting). I sincerely hope Prussia is consulting with Mr. Metternich (but it probably would have been played when I pacted Denmark).

No preempt of Prussia
120 5/28/2020 12:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Event #77: 6 / The Sultan's Ear

Message from Russia:
Pact Turkey.
Any Response?
119 5/28/2020 12:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Moscow has heard the threats from Berlin, however it is just too hard to resist the charms of the Ottoman court. Obviously there are other paths to victory for Berlin without Pacting Turkey and also without throwing the game to France.

Moscow promises to burn cards to prevent the usurper from winning, and also promises to give Berlin a card or a key as soon as possible. We hope this olive branch will mollify Berlin a little bit.
118 5/28/2020 12:56:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #907: 6 / Holy Mother Russia

Linz. Now 4 each in Linz and Vienna.
115 5/28/2020 7:51:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Message Ken,
Yes, I can move Kutuzov to Vienna. Or Linz. Which would you prefer? I might not get a chance to adjust later.

> For now I will just build at the front...

> Build 1 in Vienna. Does that give me 4 there?

As Daniel said, 5.
Did you mean build 1 in *Linz*?
If so that would be 4 under Ferdinand (and still 4 in Vienna).
Also, any Plus-Play?
114 5/28/2020 12:16:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message You started with 1 and built 3 last time, so that gives you 5 unless I'm missing something.

112 5/27/2020 10:30:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Pete, I have good defensive cards. Would you prefer to move forward Vienna where we can fight together or hope for a Russian interception? For now I will just build at the front and fall back to you if required.
111 5/27/2020 7:24:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message No preempt

Message from Britain:
0.5: 3 SQ from Mid Atl (now 0) to Bay of Biscay (now 6).

0.5: 1 SQ from Western Med (now 0) to South Atl (now 1).

Austria you may draw a card and then take your turn, unless France wishes to preempt.
107 5/27/2020 3:19:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Yes.
What I meant was, if you're looking for a Response card, in the vast majority of cases one of your allies could play it from their own hand, so there's no need to move it into your hand.
106 5/27/2020 1:33:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Straight from the rulebook:

6.15 BATTLE CARDS: Events with a black crossbar can be used in battles by any nation with a Formation present in that battle

Pretty unambiguous to me for land battles, but naval units aren't formations. It does mention you can only use battle cards for naval events if they specifically say so, but doesn't say that naval battle events have the same "only your own nation's pieces" restriction.

But the funny thing is that this all doesn't matter because there are no battle events that apply to naval battles, only response events!

At any rate I'll make a decision this afternoon when I get my next break from work.


105 5/27/2020 12:57:00 PM 1805-1806 Russia Message Daniel,

There is recent (well, somewhat recent) FAQ on that:

"6.1 EVENTS If the event text says “you” or “your,” does that mean the nation playing the card, the
player, or the player’s Camp?
A: If it’s a Response or a battle card it means the player’s Camp, otherwise it means only the nation
playing the card. If the event says “…of your choice” it means the player’s choice."

...so anyone in the Coalition could play most of those Response cards.
Russia has none of them (and I don't want to get Dresdened at the moment).
104 5/26/2020 11:12:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Also if you have a event that the owner can't play without a fleet of his own in the battle, let me know and I can go fishing for it with Council of Dresden.

101 5/26/2020 10:15:00 PM 1805-1806 Prussia Message Baaaad idea to go into Brest!!!
100 5/26/2020 10:07:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message Looks like I have two options:

1) Hole up in the Bay of Biscay with enough force that Admiralty won't be an option for a while, if ever (not all bad, it's still a 6 CP plus action)

2) "Screw it, I'm going in"

If anyone of my allies has a useful naval battle event, this might change the calculus a bit. Hopefully the benefits of this to the entire coalition are obvious enough. I would probably respond with Parliamentary aid in your direction later, but depending on how the rest of the fleet actions go I might need it to protect my home isles (also even Prussia, while I certainly understand if you don't want to "pick sides" at this point, if you are the sole side to throw in a useful response/battle card for me then Parliament would be sent your way).

It was. ACTS errs on the side of removing the "DISCARD" events when they are played as an event. But Dave fixed it.

> Since it was not an overrun, they cannot launch a siege at the moment.

Daniel, it was an overrun:
"11.6 OVERRUN
If all Units/leaders of a side in battle are eliminated – even if due to rout, failure to retreat or Attrition suffered during a retreat – an Overrun occurs. An Active Overrunning Formation may continue to move with any remaining CPs."
