If all Ports on the Baltic Sea are friendly or neutral, your Camp's naval Refits are Free and enemy Refits cost double (1 CP). Any one nation of your choice in your Camp with an availabel Squadron to build may freely place one once in an unblockaded Home Port beneath a Build marker. Retain faceup as long as all Ports on the Baltic Sea are non-enemy. Discard once no longer applicable.

Message from France:
In the first round you should have rolled 1 more dice (1+1 National bonus +2 card), here it is.

After that, you win in the first round because fractions are rounded to the benefit of the player of the card - in this case you (see glossary-Fractions).
52 3/25/2021 9:12:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Probably should have only rolled 3 Spanish battle dice because of casualty in round 1 but no impact
51 3/25/2021 9:09:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message No battle dice for British.

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 France:
let's see
31 3/24/2021 2:51:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Austria: Play Strategy card as Event #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:
Play as an event against France please. Hopefully I'm right in thinking this means you may have to remove 1d6 # of forces to regroup.
30 3/24/2021 12:32:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Also, you must tell me which country gets the Reaource

22 3/23/2021 6:22:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Event #59: 3 / Cavalry Raids
Choose any one friendly Army (not necessarily your own). All enemy Forces adjacent to that Army suffer Attrition (except Fortress Flags and those in battle). Unoccupied enemy Duchies adjacent to that Army also check for Attrition and are flagged by that Army if they fail. Voided by Form Square.

Message from Britain:
Event: Army of Charles in Venice. Attrition for forces in Milan and Romagna.

Leaves 1 CP I think. Can't see suitable option for this, so do I just pass for Britain and move on to Austria?
21 3/23/2021 5:56:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message yes, you can play another (non "+" card), and yes, "army of your choice" is an army of your choice, any army
20 3/23/2021 4:43:00 PM 1805-1806 Britain Message 3. South atlantic: Fleet moves to Mid Atlantic. Then detach 2 squadrons & move to Bay of Biscay
4,5: Build 1 BR CU in Naples

Can I now play another card as Admiralty Card has a "+"? If so, does wording "Army of your Choice" allow me to select an Austrian Army to force attrition against adjacent enemy forces?
19 3/23/2021 3:24:00 PM 1805-1806 France Spain: Play Strategy card as Event #41: 2 / Fog of War
Void a naval interception (even after failing a subsequent evasion attempt). Modify all further intercept attempts by -2 for the rest of this Impulse.

Message from France:
event

the British interception is void.

Until this point you have spent 4 mvr.

Since the card changes things (-2 drm for the following interceptions), you decide what you d next.

13 3/23/2021 3:03:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message yes, you give clear instructions, and I follow them.

Usually it is better for the non-moving player to resolve, because he may wish to play a response/battle card.

The attacker (unless he deems important to surprise the opponent) may say something like 'I may play a card before resolution of the battle' so that the defender does not resolve prematurely the battle, or "no combat card for me, you may resolve"


12 3/23/2021 11:40:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #903: 6 / Admiralty
Britain draws two cards if its Fleets control six Zones at the start of its Impulse. Voided by Bey of Algiers or if Britain is a Subject Neutral. RESERVE

Message from Britain:
Play as Operations.
1. Bay of Biscay: 2 naval squadrons to Mid-Atlantic (1 Mvr)
2. Mid Atlantic: Fleet combines and sails south to South Atlantic (2 mvr points) 1CP. France wish to intercept?
3. South Atlantic: Patrol Mvr (3 mvr points) Question: how do we dice for intercept evasion?
4. South Atlantic: if 3 unsuccessful in intercept or Fra fleet evades - repeat up to x 7 attempts (10 mvr points)
5. If fail to intercept, 2 mvrs to return squadrons to starting positions (Max 12 mvrs = 6CP)

Is this how it works? How do I chose alternative actions should fleets intercept and fail evasion earlier?

10 3/22/2021 2:55:00 PM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #108: 6 / Burnt Earth
If there are enemy Fcorces in two or more of your Home Duchies you may play this card face up before you. Place four free Units in Regroup. All CP Flag placements (and removals) in your Home Duchies cost double while this event remains in play.

Message from France:
1. Ardennes: 2 FR CU to Lorraine
2. Lorraine: Davout with 4 to Baden
3. Baden: Davout with 6 to Wuttemburg
4. Franche Comte: Lannes with 3 to Zurich
5-6. build 1 FR CU in Rome

end of my move.

Since there is a lot of interaction I propose the following: I will usually give a strict sequence of moves. If you interrupt at any point (interception, response card etc), the rest of the move from that point may change.
This will help the game to move along.

On to Britain
9 3/22/2021 2:34:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message So we play, have fun!

Each PLAYER begins with 1 Resource. For me it is for France obviously. You have a choice, between Britain, Austria and Russia, and must decide now.
