116 10/20/2020 2:16:00 AM 1755 Late Season Britain Message ah, sod it - wherever you retreat to, I'll stop Rigaud in St Regis. Over to you.

>> I'll ret to Canawaghwa or whatever it's called.

btw, is the BR Fieldworks still in Kahnawake, after Johnson moved out and left the space empty? I assume so, but what do I know?

>> I'll make it disappear on my way out. The card text says "Marker also removed anytime owner chooses or if attackers win." I assume I can destroy it as I left town.

(seems to me that there are still a significant # of grey areas in the rules, even though it's the 3rd edition of the rules...)

>> Yep, though I haven't looked for a FAQ yet.

I don't think I can bail, right? Oh wait - looks like it is different than retreating rules. While I would get whacked retreating into St. Regis Philbin, I can avoid battle into there without imminent death.

Let's try it!

95 10/18/2020 2:30:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message >>> I think I gotta go for it. Johnson et al. > Montreal.
I think you can only retreat into the fortress with 4 units, so it probably makes sense to fight outside the fortress and then retreat in with the stragglers (if you lose!)

* you do realize that you won't be able to roll on the siege table as you're OOS, right?

>>> I make it is:
BR 8 (+1)
FR 5 (+0)

* don't FR have 7?
3x (2-4), CdB, (CdB)
I don't think you get to carry your fieldworks with you

Anyway, Diskeau, 3x (2-4), CdB will retreat into the fortress
(CdB) will roll for avoid battle
94 10/18/2020 2:16:00 PM 1755 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Operations #27: 2 / Western Indian
Play if you have fort at Ohio Forks. Place ORANGE or--if you have a fort at Niagara-- BLUE/ORANGE Indian units totalling half a die roll (rounded up), or a full roll if French VP >4. Place units at their settlements. For every 1 you could place, you may instead restore 2 to full.

Play before Battle if you have Drilled Troops. If defending, place marker--attacker shifts 1 column left. If attacking, remove defender's marker. (Marker also removed anytime owner chooses or if attackers win.)

* Does it make a difference if drilled units are present or not? I don't know that it does.
I read it that you COULD raid in this instance, IF the Indian settlement currently had any Indian units on the map. However, you just offed the last Caugnewaga Indian unit, so I don't think you can raid after all.

86 10/16/2020 1:47:00 AM 1755 Late Season Britain Message I think that's a 3-1 victory. Your guys are all whacked. No VPs since Militia aren't regulars.

I'll flip one the 2-4's.

Message from France:
evade from Kahnawake

82 10/14/2020 5:20:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message * I think your last move has 2-4 units (not 3-4s)

>>> 1. Shirley (1x3-4) > Black River > Osgewatchie
- capture Stockade (+1 VP)

* I think this is OK. Shirley + units are out of supply, but I think it's OK to capture a stockade when OOS (but OOS units cannot build forts or stockades).
I just realized that your move has put my units in Oswego OOS, which means that they can't roll on the Siege table (oops)

>>> 2. Johnson (3x3-4, 2xMohawk) > Black River > Osgewatchie > St. Regis Philbin (possible intercept) > Kahnawake

* I thought this move was illegal, but I just realized it's OK as you have auxiliaries with your drilled units.
The rules talk about what happens when an Indian settlement is raided, but I can't figure out what happens if an Indian settlement is occupied by enemy troops?
I could deploy my 1 militia unit to join a battle, but I'm gonna get waxed but good if I do, so I'll try and evade (and maybe we can figure out what happens when you occupy Kahnawake...)

81 10/14/2020 12:22:00 AM 1755 Late Season Britain Play Strategy card as Event #4: 3 / Campaign
Activate any two leaders and their forces. Select them, then complete all actions by one before the other. No one may move more than once. Both may naval move.

Message from Britain:
OK - activate (don't call me) Shirley and Johnson

1. Shirley (1x3-4) > Black River > Osgewatchie
- capture Stockade (+1 VP)

2. Johnson (3x3-4, 2xMohawk) > Black River > Osgewatchie > St. Regis Philbin (possible intercept) > Kahnawake

Avoid Battle?

I make it:

FR: 0 (-1)
BR: 8 (+1)

So you'd be pretty much dead.
80 10/14/2020 12:15:00 AM 1755 Late Season Britain Message That all makes sense to me.
79 10/13/2020 8:25:00 PM 1755 Late Season France Message >>> I'll retreat into the fort so we can see how siege stuff works

* OK Rigaud et al have to stop in Oswego, and place a Siege 0 marker on the fort.

Now for activation #2 of Villiers, 1-4, CdB and Abenaki
A smart man would probably go reinforce Diskeau, so I'm not going to do that.
What I'd LIKE to do is move Villiers +3 from Cataraqui > Niaoure Bay > Oswego > Oneida Carry West
Once I get to OCW, I have to stop, but as I have drilled troops, I capture the stockade (flip to FR side), and FR gains 1 VP.
hat I'm not sure of is whether Villers has to stop in Oswego along the way. It seems to me that as the fort in Oswego is under siege by Rigaud, then Villiers doesn't have to stop in Oswego - intuitively, I think this makes sense. BUT, I don't see this eventuality covered in the rules, although maybe I missed it?
(I want to move to OCW via Oswego rather than via West Canada Creek, as you could possibly intercept me in WCC with Shirley from Adirondacks Central)
78 10/13/2020 3:55:00 PM 1755 Late Season Britain Message I'll retreat into the fort so we can see how siege stuff works.

44 10/9/2020 8:42:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message Btw:
1. I think the CdB or 1-4 could've tried to intercept Braddock in La Belle River, if I'd wanted to
2. if the 1-4 had tried and failed to intercept into La Belle River, he couldn't later try and avoid battle
3. if the 1-4 failed to evade from FR Creek, I think I could've tried to intercept into FR Creek with the CdB in Venango (I think this is allowed, even if I'd tried and failed to intercept with the CdB into La Belle River - were is 1 interception attempt allowed per space entered)

* is all that correct?
43 10/9/2020 8:32:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message 1-4 successfully evades FR Creek > Venango
Braddock occupies FR Creek and must stop.
As Braddock has drilled troops, BR captures stockade and flips it
BR gains 1 VP

Sure. I don't have an amphib card, but maybe at the end of the turn we pretend I do have one and let me run an Amphib invasion of Louisburg?

* good idea - but let's do that in 1755 Late Season? (you may draw the right cards anyway)
I would like to see the learning game get the whole way through the end of 1755, so we go through the end-of-year stuff once

22 10/7/2020 2:04:00 PM 1755 Early Season France Message raid vs Oneida Carry East is a success
eliminate stockade in Oneida Carry East, and place a Raided marker in Oneida Carry East
re-deployments:
Cdb > closest friendly, unbesieged fortification = Crown Point (S end of Lake Champlain)
Abenaki Indian > St. Francois (a couple spaces E of Montreal)
Caughnewaga Indian > Kahnawake (just W of Montreal)

Well, that all seemed like a lot of effort for not much result. Took a lot of time too with all that typing. And that was for a move that couldn't have any interceptions or avoid battles.
I know I made one small mistake (I wrote 2x spaces as Oneida Carry West in my original move), but I think you probably figured out what I'd done. Let me know if I made any other mistakes.
