    Well that's a good lesson to learn. Thanks Winter Quarter.

    And not paying to increase any support?

    Spend 3 to bring NYC to Active Support

    Err -- sorry, you need both Regulars and Tories in a space to build support, so Savannah is currently the only option.

    And @TheColonel let me know if you want to build support in Savannah. I figure it won't effect or be effected by the next action.

    Limited Commands.
    All Factions to Eligible.

    Execute two free Limited Commands and one Special Activity

    British may Trump Patriot “Brilliant Stroke!”
    All Factions to Eligible.

    107. Brilliant Stroke! (French)
    Execute two free Limited Commands and one Special Activity
    in any order. Leader must be involved in at least one of the
    Limited Commands.

    All Factions to Eligible.

    108. Brilliant Stroke! (Indians)
    Execute two free Limited Commands and one Special Activity
    in any order. Leader must be involved in at least one of the
    Limited Commands.

    I originally misread that too and only figured out my mistake by looking at the board track.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    (Oreo, don't let me tell you what to do, but you should probably pass and take the event on the next card which looks super good for you.)

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Yeah. I was going thinking of taking the event even before reading the free fort part.
    Patriots pass.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular

    @admanb for Event, Limited Command, or Pass on the Economic Liberalism card.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Indians will take limited command and will Raid from SW into NC, reducing opposition and adding a Raid token, then Plunder to steal two resources from the Patriots.

    Declaration of Independence

    The Declaration of Independence was accepted by one-third of the
    population while one-third was against it, and one-third was
    neutral. Thousands of Patriots gathered and destroyed the signs
    and symbols that represented the British Crown. Rioters destroyed
    a statue of King George III in New York.

    "All men are granted by their Creator certain inalianable rights; among these rights are life, liberty, and one Brilliant Stroke card" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Though it's arguably closer to the Locke reference than Jefferson's take.

    French Settlers Help

    After the French lost French Canada to the British in the Seven Years’
    War, 80,000 French settlers stayed behind. During the American
    Revolution some provided assistance and fought for the Patriots.

    @admanb Just saw this and maybe it's too late to do anything about it, but you couldn't have taken the Plunder special activity at this time. If the first eligible player does a command + special activity (as I did), the next eligible player can either take the event or play a limited command (command in one space with no special activity).

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Thanks for the quotes. Stuck on phone tried to find someone else’s activation and couldnt.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Bleah. Dunno why I always forget you can't SA after a LC.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Having reset that (and accurately given the Patriots a resource for passing) the Patriots now have 14, the Indians have 2, and there's still an active war party in NC.

    Indians will Gather and place a Village in the NW.

    Benedict Arnold

    He distinguished himself through acts of valor including the Capture
    of Fort Ticonderoga, the Victory at Valcour Island, the Kennebec Expedition
    against Quebec (including preserving the American Army
    on its retreat from Canada), the Battle of Ridgefield, Connecticut
    (after which he was promoted to major general), operations in relief
    of the Siege of Fort Stanwix, and key actions during the Battle of
    Saratoga where he suffered leg injuries that sidelined him for several
    years. Frustrated with being passed over for promotion and accused
    of corruption, Arnold decided to defect and opened secret negotiations
    with the British. Arnold’s scheme to surrender Fort West Point to
    the British was exposed. Arnold fled down the Hudson River to
    the British sloop-of-war Vulture, narrowly avoiding capture by
    the forces of George Washington, who had been alerted to the plot.

    Continental MArines

    The Continental Marine Act of 1775 of the 2nd Continental Congress
    decreed: “That two battalions of Marines be raised consisting of
    one Colonel, two lieutenant-colonels, two majors and other officers,
    as usual in other regiments…that particular care be taken that no
    persons be appointed to offices, or enlisted into said battalions, but

    be able to serve for and during the present war with Great Britain

    @TheColonel to decide whether to give me any resources and then take his Limited Command or Event.
