If Russia is not a Subject Neutral or in a Foreign War AND no enemy Forces are in a Russian Home Duchy: • draw two cards and play one of them, OR • Roll a die and gain a Resource if you roll less than the current Turn number. Otherwise, build Units equal to the roll. RESERVE

If available to be built, create a "1-4" leader for either side in a battle space. It may affect that battle by rolling an extra die even after all the battle dice have been thrown. It remains in play until eliminated.

832 12/31/2020 10:33:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message Thought maybe we were safe without Polish Uprising this time...

I believe Prussia retreating the 1 unit out of Thorn is the only reaction possible (might be worth trying so he doesn't get a flag overrun) unless you have a card that lets you intercept without a leader. And at any rate, Russia has no card at this time.
831 12/31/2020 10:24:00 PM 1811-1812 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #905: 6 / Guerre de Course
One or two unblockaded (not Refitting) French Squadrons move Offboard to raid commerce. See Offboard Fleets on the Battleground display. British card losses never include Reserves or exceed Minimum Hand limits in the Interphase, but may include Resources. RESERVE

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.

819 12/31/2020 1:55:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Prussia: Play Strategy card as Operations #100: 3 / Frigates
Place a Squadron of any nation in a Zone of that's nation's controlled Port by placing this card in that Zone with a Flag. If blockaded, interception can be attempted. Thereafter, it is treated as a normal Squadron of that nationality except that it has no dice in combat. It is removed and the card returned to the deck when sunk or returned to Port. A Prussian/Austrian Squadron has an evasion dice roll modifier of 0.

Message from Prussia:
Well let's try and keep Spain out of this, especially on the French side.

Down to Friend and +1 for Turkey and Prussia.

Humm.... looks like the turn track in the file is way off as well.
818 12/31/2020 1:48:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Prussia: Draw Extra Strategy Card Message from Prussia:
Got a break in the holiday festivities here. :-)

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Drawing the extra card first.
817 12/28/2020 5:48:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Message Russia, let's wait an impulse or two to see which way France goes. I promise to send what aid that I can provided things stay the way they are.
816 12/28/2020 9:24:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message Prussia may go.
815 12/28/2020 9:24:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message Prussia ma go.
814 12/27/2020 11:28:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message The only card, I think, that would affect France's ability to preempt is "Steal a March". I'm not sure I've ever seen it played as an event but there are valid reasons one might hypothetically want to do so.

With a game like this and so many potential response situations, I generally figure that when someone makes a move, they can pre-announce stuff with the understanding that this may give their opponent extra info. E.g. I might say "I move Kutuzov and his army to spaces A, B, C, and then D. You can intercept me in B or C". This gives away where I'm going and might help my opponent make his intercept decision. So I'm either thinking it won't affect his choice, or that I'm willing to risk that in order to move the game along.

So TL/DR version: I'm ok with Pat moving ahead if he wants to risk it. That said if there's any dice that need to be rolled for a battle, we should definitely stop and wait in case Prussia draws a response/battle card. Which maybe was what you were saying all along?
813 12/27/2020 11:14:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message Honestly, I feel like it's fair for people to draw their cards before preempts since they might affect a preempt card play.
812 12/27/2020 10:27:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message At any rate, either France or Prussia is up next - and Prussia will get to draw a card before taking her turn.
811 12/27/2020 10:26:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message Britain - if you give me Parliament this turn then I will delay my play as much as possible (i.e. play my Reserve on a turn by itself without a card), in order to use Patriotic Fervor for you at the end of the turn. To get your hand empty before mine though, you'd probably either have to use Admiralty as CP or else play a Response/Battle out of turn.

Understand if you don't want to bother, but wanted you to know the option is there if you want a tit-for-tat.
810 12/27/2020 10:24:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #107: 3 / Relief Convoy
A nation of your choice may use three naval maneuvers now. Double the number of dice of a Fortress Port as long as a friendly Squadron controls that Zone. Play in response to a siege resolution only adds dice, not changes them. Retain faceup beneath the controlling Squadron and discard when the conditions are no longer met.

Message from Russia:
1. 2u Novgorod -> St Petersburg.
2. Bagration/6 St. Petersburg -> Vyborg
3. control Sveaborg
809 12/27/2020 10:22:00 PM 1811-1812 Russia Message I'll take 1 unit each from Corfu and Borisov to the war, along with Konstantin (Prague npw just 4 units).
