Hello,

in several games we played, no one ever found any use of the event of the austrian home card. So how do you play it?

Thanks for the answers

You play it just after failing an important evade roll where Napoleon is going to kick your main army's butt. Or you play it just before Nap (or some other enemy) can flag a bunch of your spaces and you can't react until later. It's a pretty powerful card.

The French player can play a card and a plus card in his 1st impulse to move Napoleon with 8 CUs right into Vienna; playing this card makes it impossible for the French to flag Linz & Vienna on the 1st impulse and thus wins the time to move Russian troops next to Vienna to have a strong army defend the Austrian capital in the 2nd impulse of turn 1; if the evade roll from Linz fails, this card is regularly played in our games. It makes all the difference in the defence of Vienna against an early French onslaught.

Thanks for the advices, the card make sense to me now. Also it should be useful in the same manner to prevent Prussia to annex the two keys in Galicia by joing the Imperial camp or a first turn DoW.
