268 6/21/2021 6:20:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message oh brotherhood and unity as well

267 6/21/2021 3:13:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message yep that is definitely more doable:

Successors, pericles, here I stand, Atlantic chase, condottiere, RA, Pan Am
266 6/21/2021 10:03:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Much simpler question: What did you play at Davidís this weekend?
265 6/21/2021 10:02:00 AM 1805-1806 France Message That's a long question to answer, what i don't play is more feasible.

My first love is historical war games, obv, but I enjoy most euros, some amer-trash/dude's on a map games

Outside of role playing stuff, I play most anything but I dislike deterministic outcome combats
264 6/21/2021 9:51:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Hi Chris. It was great to get to know you a hit this past weekend. What games did you play? Next yearís WBC is a long way away, but hopefully we get to play then.
263 6/20/2021 12:46:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Bill, great meeting you over the weekend. I am going to concede my position here, appreciate the patience throughout. I just got overwhelmed with work/life responsibilities and did not play at my usual clip.

You clearly have the game in hand, from my view, so congrats

David and I started playing PoG online when it first came out. It was a crazy obsession at the time: so good and ground breaking. So we played like crazy. And just kind of stayed in touch since.

I intended to say +1 SP to Charles in VENICE, not Vienna. Mental gaff. This gives Charles 6 SP, and now he attacks Milan. (Charles is not in Salzburg - you may have accidentally moved him, not sure on that one.)

202 4/30/2021 11:11:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #87: 4 / Corn Riots
A nation of your choice must Regroup Forces/Squadrons equal to a die roll. If unable to do so, it must instantly build enough to Regroup or Submit. Flags can be removed for compliance, but they must be markers - not inherent flags. A Neutral Proxy removes Flags, Units, Leaders, and Squadrons in that order. If needed, a Neutral Proxy uses randomly drawn cards from its hand to build Units and will then use its Resources and/or Reserve in that order if necessary.

Message from Britain:

1-2. Add an SP in Vienna (n6 with Charles)

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.
