629 10/26/2020 11:27:00 AM 1809-1810 Prussia Prussia: Play Strategy card as Operations #16: 5 / Conscripts
A leader of your choice is given two more Units of its nationality - even during battle. The added Units may exceed the Commander's Command Rating even if it is moved into the battle. Afterwards those Units would be subject to normal command restrictions. Can be played even AFTER seeing all battle dice for two extra die rolls in that battle.

Message from Prussia:
Okay now that France is done let us see what we can do.† First to clean up the mess of the Prussian troops.† I so miss Vassal compared to Cyberboard at times like this.

Let us keep the Turks from sliding further into the black hell that would be brought by being conscripted by the vile French dogs.

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:
Kutzov/6 leaves Konst/4 in Prague, moves to Breslau and then Lodz, which takes all 4 CP thanks to Mud.

I'm already down to just my Reserve, so this thorn may take more than just me to flush out given France's preponderance of cards.

If Prussia is at war with France, place Poniatowski, three French Units and a Flag in Warsaw. Attack all enemy Formations there prior to any evasion/interception. If Prussia is not at war with France, the card must be played as 6 CPs and remains in the game.

Message from Austria:
1-3
Schwarzenburg and everyone in Linz (19 dice) attack Munich (20 French dice)
Does France wish to fight?
560 10/1/2020 1:03:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message That looks correct to me.
559 10/1/2020 12:51:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Message I want to verify pre-battle-card dice before attacking Munich from Linz.
Before cards, the dice would be (if I counted correctly):
Austria - 19
Schwarzenburg - 2
other leaders - 2
troops - 14
Austrian bonus - 1
France - 20
Davout - 3
Massena - 1

557 9/29/2020 5:28:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message I will end here then and see what develops.

UK done.
556 9/29/2020 2:27:00 PM 1809-1810 Russia Message It would raise the question of why you spent a good card to knock them away from the French if you're just going to give them Spain right back. But it does make sense - it got you Lisbon back for free which ended up granting you a card draw, and now that you have Wellington with an army, your strength relative to Spain had taken a jump.


OTOH, while an 8-card France might be strong enough to fight all 3 of us, he's probably not strong enough to fight all 4 of us. And if there's a sitzkrieg, one of us (probably Austria or Prussia, I don't have the cards) could try to take Spain themselves.

So anyway I don't know that you're "missing" anything, just different ways of going about it.

555 9/29/2020 12:31:00 PM 1809-1810 Britain Message I was thinking of knocking the Spanish consul down so that he couldn't pact them or at least make it harder to. But now I'm thinking there could be some easy keys there if he were to pact them. Am I missing something?
554 9/29/2020 11:24:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message Here's the relevant stuff as to what happens to the units of Spain when it becomes neutral:

All newly Neutral Forces outside their Home and their own Associate Duchies Regroup . . . . Newly Neutral Squadrons Regroup if in a Port other than their own.

Since SQ are not forces, and since this SQ isn't in a port, looks like nothing happens to it. It just sits there and doesn't affect anyone, much like the Turkish squadron in the Black Sea at the start of the game.

553 9/29/2020 11:12:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message That will decide if I play another card.
552 9/29/2020 11:12:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message Does the SP SQ near Ireland go home now that he isn't an ally?

A couple of changes though. I could not deploy a unit from Stockholm to Kalmar because I did not have a leader. I can convoy a unit from Straslund to Kalmar, which I have done.

Also, I bought a two unit second deployment. I intended to move Messina and one strength point from Rome to Munich. If that is Ok with everyone, Iíll move the unit with Messena. That leaves two units in Rome

535 9/26/2020 10:35:00 AM 1809-1810 Russia Message France:I don't seem to be able to flip the build marker, but it should be on the refit side

For some reason, the Naval Build and the Refit markers are separate markers in this module rather than being on the flip side of each other. I would have taken care of it in the correct phase but I missed that you had a build in Venice.

Is there a file with the Imperial deployments? I'm not seeing one.

Britain:I'm drawing 3, correct?

Yes. You're down Naples but back up due to the "+1 key+ status, giving you 4, down to 3 for burning a card on the peace roll. Austria then gets 3, Russia 2, Prussia 3, Spain/Turks 2, Danes/Swedes 1.
534 9/26/2020 10:10:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message I'm drawing 3, correct?
