893 9/22/2020 8:08:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Prussia: Play Strategy card as Operations #25: 5 / Panic!
The loser of any battle suffers Attrition to all surviving (including disrupted) Units/leaders prior to any rout resolution. Any Attrition losses suffered inflicted are assessed first to non-disrupted Units/leaders and contribute to possible rout conditions. This event can be voided by play of the Rally or Rear Guard events prior to the Attrition roll.

Message from Prussia:
This is card play will be void if Russia wishes to spend their resource as a plus-play.

I was hoping to save this for when I needed to rout Kutuzov...

1: Unflag Warsaw (-1 Russian Key (7) +1 Prussian key (7))
2: Blucher/6 to Lublin. Does Kutuzov wish to spend Russian blood&treasure to defend Austrian keys?
892 9/21/2020 9:19:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message I suspect Bruce would've already Plus-played since there would've been no reason to keep us in suspense.
Card counts are f3 b3 a2 r2 p2 so no one has Preempt.
891 9/21/2020 9:03:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Does Russia wish to plus-play (spend reserve)? Is there any preempt?
890 9/21/2020 9:00:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Prussia: Play Strategy card as Operations #906: 6 / Raise the Landwehr

889 9/21/2020 6:15:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Event #10: 4 / Palace Intrigue
Void any nation's unplayed Reserve fo the rest of the Turn. A targeted nation with two unplayed Reserves may choose the one thus affected.

Message from Russia:
Iím intrigued with the Prussian home card!
888 9/21/2020 4:20:00 PM 1809-1810 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.

Message from Britain:
2: Welly/Beres/3 from Dal (lv John/1) to Milan, now Welly/Beres/3 and Charles/6.

884 9/21/2020 6:19:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message That was a statement, not an offer.
But if that's where you want help, OK.
Britain announces a Preempt of Russia. Any Response?

882 9/20/2020 9:32:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message France will get to go before my scheduled impulse.
Or do you mean I should preempt in order to move to Milan?
881 9/20/2020 8:42:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #19: 2 / Split Squadrons
Cancel any prior interception result and engage a portion of an enemy Fleet of your choice in the same Zone (including Offboard) without evasion. Ignore the rest which do not participate in the same battle. May be played without an intercept attempt or after or before an intercept/evasion attempt regardless of outcome.

Message from Austria:
Pretty much out of cards with value.
1-2: John + 1 from Milan (leaving Charles + 6) to Dalmatia: now John + 1, Wellington + 3, and Beresford.
Come on back to Milan.
880 9/20/2020 8:41:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message oh, yeah. No flag in Sev.
879 9/20/2020 8:41:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message The Turks eliminated the Russian unit in Sevastopol. It contains Mustafa/3 and flag. No other Turkish formations are around, but they did also flag Kherson, Upland, and Kiev.
878 9/20/2020 8:41:00 PM 1809-1810 Prussia Message Sevestapol is Mustafa and 3 turks, no flag.
877 9/20/2020 8:27:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message What happened in Sevastapol? Anybody remain alive? Or nearby000?
876 9/20/2020 1:23:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message ...alternatively, spending the 3 CP's to bring the Spanish consul up to Aide would also be a good idea.
875 9/20/2020 12:07:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #95: 2 / Deluge
Halve (franctions rounded down) the upcoming Battle Dice of both sides in the next round of the current battle.

Message from Britain:
I see there was 1 extra left behind in Zurich, so Zurich is now Nappy/7.
1: move 4 from London to Cornwall, now Moore/4.
1.5: refit the SQ in Gibraltar.
2.0: move the SQ from Gibraltar to Western Med, now 2 SQ's.
If our Austrian friends could build just 1 in Zagreb, that would free up Wellington for a variety of opportunities, all of which are more interesting than keeping an eye on the 1 Turkish unit in Montenegro. Although for the moment Welly is in a good spot to react quickly in a few different directions.
Done. Over to Austria. This time around I might Preempt.
874 9/20/2020 11:06:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Massena +6 to Limoges

I think Spain is off people's agendas for now

Brits
873 9/19/2020 7:24:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Yes, France is at 2 of 3 CP's.
This would be a great time for the Charge of the Cuiraissers but I don't have it.
So I think Nappy/6 retreat back to Zurich, leaving Charles/6 and John/1 remaining in Milan.
872 9/19/2020 6:59:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message I believe France still has 1 CP.
871 9/19/2020 5:14:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message Happy with that result

No cards
870 9/18/2020 10:23:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message No Response from London.

Attrition
857 9/16/2020 10:40:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Before the Pass attrition, I think it's 14 versus 14+2=16.
Nothing from London.
Good luck to our Austrian friends. Wellington would love to take Venice and Milan off his list of things to worry about.
856 9/16/2020 7:03:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Event #901: 6 / Hussars and Grenzers
Only Austrian flages can be placed in Austria by CP expenditure until the next scheduled Austrian Impulse. Until then, all Austrian interceptions and evasions succeed - including one failed just prior to the play of this event. Any CP expenditure for a flag placement rejected by the play of this event is forfiet. RESERVE

Message from Austria:
Crap. I'll spend this one to get John + 4 into Venice. Now Charles + 6 and John + 4 in Venice defending Napoleon + 8 crossing a pass.
855 9/16/2020 6:50:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message Badly split. I'll save my Reserve.
Play anything else you've got and roll them. My this be the worst attrition the French ever get.
854 9/16/2020 6:34:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message Ken,
Bennigsen/1 deployed back to Russia during the Interphase:

> 696

853 9/16/2020 6:06:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message If Bennigsen et al will come I'll use Hussars and Grenzers to bring John and 4 too. With Napoleon we may still lose, but it'll be close . I have ho more cads, Maybe you or the Brits will.
852 9/16/2020 5:39:00 PM 1809-1810 Austria Message I'm showing Bennugsen + 1 in Venice adjacent to Milan. If I'm wrong tell me where he went.
851 9/15/2020 9:18:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message ... by "he" I mean the Napster.
850 9/15/2020 9:16:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message John needed an 8.
Wellington in Dalmatia is not in range either.
With the pass, even if he rolls zero attrition you're only down 3 dice.
849 9/15/2020 9:11:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message There are no Russians around

Roll a die. That many enemy Units/leaders of their Commander's choice do not appear in the first round of battle and are unaffected by losses therefrom. If the battle is lost, they must retreat with the survivors of the battle. If no Units/leaders remain to give battle, none is fought and they retreat. If a second round is fought, they participate normally.

Would have been pushing it for the Danes to do clear all the fleets and there's a lot of Swedes in the way
826 9/14/2020 7:52:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Message In my previous message, my key counts were wrong, because I forgot to adjust for Warsaw. In losing Kiev, Russia fell to 8.
