Each blockaded Squadron in a Port of your choice rolls a die: 6-sunk, 5-damaged. Mark each damaged Squadron with a Naval Build marker. Any Squadron already under a Refit/Build marker which is damaged is sunk instead. A -1 modifier applies to a Fortress. A +1 modifier applies to Refit or Naval Builds.

Message from Austria:

368 12/17/2020 12:16:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message It prevents a convoy (including an amphibious assault). And it prevent an Interphase fleet deployment past it.
It does not prevent you from sailing past right now with CP's *BUT* the fortress gets to take a pot shot at you with 4 dice. 6's are kills.
367 12/17/2020 11:30:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message Does the fortress in copenhagen preclude me from sending my swedish fleet to BoB? If not that's what I'm doing with those three CPs from the preempt. Otherwise I'll go join the siege of Copenhagen. We're getting into nitty gritty of rules that I don't know. Sorry it's dragging.
366 12/15/2020 12:48:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message Rob,
The event needs the target to be an *enemy* port.
Prussia is neutral. (She isn't Unaligned, but she is neutral.) An impulse declaration of war against a Power costs 7 CP's --- which you have no way to pay, and I wouldn't recommend anyhow.

Seeing how Massena is perched in Vendee, you might want to consider putting a squadron in the Bay of Biscay.
365 12/15/2020 12:19:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message So...you are declaring war on Prussia?
364 12/15/2020 9:14:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message Yes they may. The sweden preempt is with a card that ACTS thinks they already played. Sweden has four real cards.

She preemps and does her move.

Britain is runinating.

361 12/14/2020 8:06:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message Actually, since Denmark passed, that means the Swedes can't preempt, because a nation can never have two impulses in a row with nothing happening in between.

Attrition roll for Prussians
317 11/25/2020 10:44:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message OK Swedes will do the same. Brits had ZERO cards only two reserves at the start of their turn.

So sweden could preempt britain. They did and Britain passes

316 11/25/2020 7:04:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Well, you're the one who said "Brits unless preempted by Swedes"
Britain cannot be preempted because she has no actual cards.
However, it looks to me like if Sweden returned both her Reserve and Russian Winter to her hand she would have 3 actual cards, which is more than anybody else as far as I can tell, so Sweden would be able to preempt Austria.
315 11/24/2020 10:25:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message If the Swedes still have their reserve, there is no preempt and the Brits are up after the French turn.

Thank you but go ahead and take back your Russian Winter card. I have a way to bring the Prussians under control, so Russian Winter is unnecessary.
312 11/24/2020 8:10:00 PM 1811-1812 Britain Sweden: Play Strategy card as Event #49: 3 / Russian Winter
The Russian (even if without cards) selects a Russian Home Duchy to suffer Attrition (excluding any Fortress Flag) and gains two CPs for immediate use in that Impulse for each Attrition loss inflicted. Repeat at the start of each Russian scheduled Impulse. A Neutral Proxy will not play this event unless Russia contains enemy Foces.

Ferdinand alone retreats to *Salzburg*, Kutuzov/4 and John/2 retreat to Vienna, now Kutuzov/4 John/4.
Linz now Nappy/Eugene/Victor/11.

> Gustavas/4 Kalmar to Antwerp

Rob, you can't do that because you can't convoy past a Straight held by an enemy Fortress (Copenhagen). One thing you could try if you want to is walking across the Straight to attack Copenhagen (since there is not an enemy fleet in the Baltic Sea nor in Copenhagen). But Copenhagen will get to throw 4 dice at you before you get there --- only in round zero, not in every round of the battle. Note this might help me more than you, because you might soften up Copenhagen enough that the Russians can invade.

Also, notice Bruce moved the 4 from Brussels to Antwerp so that would be a pretty risky attack for the Swedes.

> 1.0 Wellington to Cornwall
> 3.0 Wellington/4 &Moore Cornwall Channel Antwerp

You can't bring Welly because convoyed units/leaders must have started their Impulse in that Port (and also they cannot move after Convoying).
