Moore+4 deploy from Kent to St Petersburg
562 3/31/2021 3:31:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Having time and will, I do reinf&depl for all nations and send you the CB file with the resulting situation, just in case you might be willing to see what happens in turn 3 (even if I agree there is almost no hope for the Allies to win this game; I would give them a probability of about 1%, if the French player doesn't get fool)
561 3/31/2021 3:18:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message You don't know the level of other players in the tournament, some may well have the same level of experience as you
560 3/31/2021 3:15:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message > I'm not sure I should continue in this tournament. I'm too inexperienced and this game takes too much time for me.

This would be a pity. If you learned a lot with this match (and I think so), it is certainly worth trying again with another player!
Unless you now hate this game and want to forget it, but I hope not because it is a great game IMHO.
559 3/31/2021 3:05:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message done (it was a useless 2-CP card)

555 3/31/2021 3:02:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I see that I can change players, so I can proceed myself to give the British card to France :)

I will then wait your feedback about possible continuation in two, maybe switching sides, or see if I continue alone when I have time
554 3/31/2021 2:59:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message If this would raise your interest, I would be fine also to continue one more turn by switching sides (to see what I can do with the Allies, in this almost desperate situation).
In this case let me know, and I start doing reinforcement and deployment with the Allies
553 3/31/2021 2:56:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message You are welcome.
I understand your will to resign, in a so unbalanced situation.
However if one plays for fun the next turn might also be interesting, to see if the Allies can avoid the conquest of Russia. It is hard, because the turn would start with Napoleon+Blucher full armies in Smolensk, French and Prussia having 14 cards/reserves +2 resources against Britain-Russia-Sweden having 11 cards/reserves (+possible response plays by Austria with 5 cards).
However the Russians can be helped by many Swedish and British forces starting at St Petersburg after deployments (and St Pet must be conquered together with Moscow, to have Russia surrendering), and in this game there is almost never anything sure.

Please can you, as final action, give the British card to France, or tell me which card it is?
Maybe I will continue the game one more turn by playing solo, to see what happens.
I would not use ACTS (CB-only is more practical), unless you are tempted to continue playing yourself

552 3/30/2021 8:34:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Let's just agree that you rolled peace and the game ends with your victory. I appreciate your patience with me and I have learned a lot. I'm not sure I should continue in this tournament. I'm too inexperienced and this game takes too much time for me. Thank you Matteo.
551 3/30/2021 4:38:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I fear that only one player is having fun 🙄
Well, at least you will be more experienced for the next match 😉
550 3/30/2021 4:33:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message when you place reinforcements with Russia, remember to roll for draft of Unit draft to the Russo-Turkish War (the least of 3 dice is the number of units you have to send to the foreign war)
549 3/30/2021 4:30:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message In case of Patriotic Fervor I would draw a card with Prussia, and in fact we should play it before the Interphase!
548 3/30/2021 4:28:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message In case of Cavalry Raids I would play it with Nap army at Lublin, so you would roll 8-dice attrition at Grodno (the inherent flag counts 1) and 1-die attrition at Lemburg (flagged if you roll 6)
547 3/30/2021 4:18:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message before all this, remember to give the last British card to France!
(or consider it played if it is one of those I mentioned, possibly changing the battle result at Naples...)
546 3/30/2021 4:16:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Austira will have the following option, after seeing the 3 cards drawn:
"Any Subject Neutral nation that did not Mulligan may discard all cards and forfeit its Reserve(s) for the current turn. The Subject Neutral then draws a new Hand equal to its Maximum Hand Size. It also draws an additional card for each Reserve it forfeited which becomes its new Reserve for that Turn only and is placed face down on its HQ Display until used or the Turn ends. That new Reserve ceases to be considered a “card” and is treated in all respects as a Reserve until discarded"
545 3/30/2021 4:14:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Keys status (if I didn't miss something), for those not in the starting box:
RU 5 (will draw 2 cards)
AU 6 (will draw 3 cards)
FR 18 (will draw 8 cards, considering one spent for peace dieroll)
544 3/30/2021 4:12:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I do the neutrals:

With 5 you can change the result, if you want, by spending a British card.
Russia and Austria cannot spend a card in this situation (RU because it has minimum hand and AU because it is Neutral)
540 3/30/2021 4:03:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Peace Phase: I spend a card and suppose you don't spend it (I'll give you the advantage to decide this after seeing the dieroll ;)

522 3/30/2021 3:42:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message 5) 2 SP from Rome attack Naples

If the British card is one of the following responses I would play it in this battle:
- Bravest of the Brave
- Massed Grenadiers (I would play it at the end of the first ballte if it is tied)

If the British card is one of the following battle cards I would play it in this battle:
- Reverse Slopes
- Twelve Pounders
- Horse Artillery
- Lost Dispatch

Meanwhile I roll on basic odds, 3 vs 2

Let me check before (by filtering the cards manifest excel file ;) if there is any card I would play as response...
If the British card is one of these responses I would play it before moving:
- Cavalry Raids
- Foreign Aid
- Patriotic Fervor
Then I would start moving, with 5 CPs:
1) Nap+7 to Zhitomir (leaving 1 in Lublin)
2) Nap+6 to Kiev (leaving 1 in Zhitomir)
3) Nap+4 to Gomel (leaving 2 in Kiev)

512 3/30/2021 1:41:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #904: 5 / Napoleon
If Napoleon is present, you may commit the Imperial Guard after seeing all other battle dice. Roll four more battle dice. Besides inflicting hits, rally a disrupted French Unit for each "4" rolled by the extra dice. Only Napoleon's presence at some point during the battle is required, not his well-being. RESERVE

Message from France:
as '+' play I use my reserve for 5 CPs
511 3/30/2021 1:40:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #71: 6 / Spithead & the Nore
Draw a random card from the British hand (if available) and one from the Draw Pile. Not playable by Britain.

Message from France:
I take the last card from British hand and one card from the draw pile.
As a consequence, I think this is the last impulse of the turn (and the remaining British reserve is lost).

"This sequence continues until only one nation has an
unplayed card(s) remaining (5.5). The Turn will end
after that nation takes its Impulse (unless in so doing another nation gains a card during that Impulse)"
If it wasn't the last impulse and you hadn't any reserve I would do two consecutive French impulses, which may not be. But reserves do not count to determine last impulse, "Neither Resources
or Reserves are considered cards"
510 3/30/2021 1:34:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message I have an unusual situation, I check in the rules what is the consequence of my next card play...
509 3/30/2021 1:31:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message build it Zagreb instead.

Message from France:
independently from your choice about Venice, this is my last card, so I draw two more...
505 3/30/2021 1:27:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message the SP built in Venice can be intercepted by Massena.
Do you build it anyway?
504 3/30/2021 1:11:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Russia: 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.

That's an important rule to know: response cards can be used by anyone for anyone at any time.

490 3/30/2021 1:17:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message > The 4 unit in Moravia attacks Vienna Bulow +3. Go ahead and evade or fight the battle

For sure Bulow will not evade, but Lannes from Budapest will try to intercept.
If you confirm the attack, go ahead and roll for interception and battle (no cards for me either)
489 3/29/2021 8:57:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Yes, I would very much like to see my mistakes explained to me. That would be nice of you. I have so much to learn!!
488 3/29/2021 8:56:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Britain uses the 2 CP to build 1 SP in Naples, now 3

487 3/29/2021 4:52:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I understand that you may be somehow discouraged, but I think you need more experience in this game and you are getting it :)

IMO it is a good and funny game, worth to be played each time.
The impact of luck may seem too heavy to some, but good play is also important, and the uncertainty resulting from buckets of dice and response cards is what makes it so funny to play.

We ended turn 1 in a balanced situation, then in turn 2 you were unlucky in important battles but you also did too many (and important) mistakes.
I've taken notes, if you are interested I can send them to you by e-mail (it would be too long for an ACTS message).
486 3/29/2021 4:02:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message SO you have:

You can't do this while a Turkish foreign war is in progress.
So the Turkish consul is still Unaligned and you have 2 CPs to spend with Britain
479 3/29/2021 2:35:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Also in this case I think you could assume my interception, rolling for it and for the battle, to gain time by doing also the Russian impulse.
Unfortunately this game is not very good for pbem having so many possible interactions during each move, but if one takes the risk to take assumptions and go on (when feasible, at least for non crucial battles) it is feasible in a normal pbem time.
This is more important in our case, not managing to play in the same time windows

Yes, sure.
