4: Build 1u Constantinople (now Yusuf/7)
5: Move 1u Bucharest to Dobruja (now 2).

Done. Prussia will not spend a resource unless there is a response to the Turk pact, so I can be safely skipped the rest of the turn. If there is a response, I'll undo card play and release the Turks back to Neutral

I will spend the final 2 CP to build 1u in Warsaw (now 1).

148 9/14/2021 11:15:00 AM 1805-1806 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Event #100: 3 / Frigates
Place a Squadron of any nation in a Zone of that's nation's controlled Port by placing this card in that Zone with a Flag. If blockaded, interception can be attempted. Thereafter, it is treated as a normal Squadron of that nationality except that it has no dice in combat. It is removed and the card returned to the deck when sunk or returned to Port. A Prussian/Austrian Squadron has an evasion dice roll modifier of 0.

Message from Russia:
I'll just stick this Frigate in the Black Sea to give us some extra leeway regarding the Continental System.

Technically I'm supposed to put this card itself in the zone, which would make the card unavailable to cycle through the deck as long the Frigate Squadron survives. However, I don't see a good way to do that - I guess we just have to discard it if we draw it again?
147 9/14/2021 10:31:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message > If I understand correctly, this doesn't trigger the Timed Event Removal Roll, since it's all done as part of executing the event of the Reserve, which is not a Card.

If Russia is not a Subject Neutral or in a Foreign War AND no enemy Forces are in a Russian Home Duchy: • draw two cards and play one of them, OR • Roll a die and gain a Resource if you roll less than the current Turn number. Otherwise, build Units equal to the roll. RESERVE

Message from Russia:
Will 2 draw cards and play 1 now.

If I understand correctly, this doesn't trigger the Timed Event Removal Roll, since it's all done as part of executing the event of the Reserve, which is not a Card.

Only Austrian flages can be placed in Austria by CP expenditure until the next scheduled Austrian Impulse. Until then, all Austrian interceptions and evasions succeed - including one failed just prior to the play of this event.

You already moved them in the 1st Impulse Round (you played a 2) --- see msg 68 and 69 --- and lost one in the siege.

In the meantime I'll play Sweden's impulse:
1: move the SQ from Stockholm to Baltic Sea, forming a Grand Fleet under the two Russian SQ's.
3: move Gus/4 from Stockholm (lv 1) via Svealand to Christiania.
Evade?
You can roll my Pass attrition. If battle, no cards here.

Turkish Formations may not exit Turkey while this event is in play. Those outside Turkey Regroup. Any unspent odd CP of a Turkish Neutral build is used to attempt to end this Foreign War instead of placing the +1 CP marker. The +1 CP marker, if already in play, is removed. Add #1 to all attempts to end Turkish Foreign Wars (but not the Serbian Revolt) while this event is in play.

Preemptions are not allowed while the Coalition controls 7 Zones. Discard when the Coalition fails to control 7 Zones at the end of any Impule. If played by a Neutral when the Coalition does not control 7 Zones, the event is unplayable and the card is used as 5 CPs.

90 9/9/2021 7:09:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Oops. France has 4 actual cards --- I forgot to move down my marker which was supposed to remind me Imperial Guard is already spent.
89 9/9/2021 7:03:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Bruce, can you please click on "Undo Card Play" and put Napoleon Abdicates back in the discard pile --- I'm pretty sure ACTS has removed it from the game
88 9/9/2021 7:01:00 AM 1805-1806 Britain Message Done.
By my count France has 3 actual cards, and Britain, Austria, Russia, & Prussia have 2 --- therefore France could preempt Austria.
I don't have Overseas Allies, but would definitely play that for Persian War if I did.
London hates to annoy our friends in Berlin, but how do our Coalition allies feel about the prospect of neutral Prussia at +3 Points? That would be hard for Austria or Russia to surpass. I'm willing to chip in if needed.
