We're a little fuzzy on the following two points. Any help would be appreciated.

1) If the British raid Trois Rivieres so that it is empty, then all French locations to the West are suddenly unsupplied and their cards are useless, correct? (The French cards allow travel from Quebec to Fort St. John, but not vice-versa, so even if the French control Fort St. John, Ticonderoga, etc., they cannot supply western cities such as Oswego this way, right?)

2) The rules say, "For the purposes of tracing a connection back to Boston/Quebec, locations that have ship symbols next to them are considered to be connected to every other location with a ship symbol next to it." Is distance not a factor here? Let's say the French have besieged Boston from Pemaquid, and then lose Pemaquid via a raid while the siege is in progress. Let's further say that the French don't hold a single sea port other than Quebec (to make this example clear). Does Quebec supply the siege in Boston, all that way, even though the French control no sea ports between Quebec and Boston (in this example)? The rules make it sound like that, since every sea port is connected to every other sea port. And, if that supply is possible, could Quebec also supply a French siege on New York (started via Albany, which then fell to a raid), even though the French cards don't trace a supply route by sea to New York?

Thanks.

1) Yes those locals' cards, to the west, are lost with TR gone. They are no longer connected.

2) Distance does not matter. They would still be supplied, as long as they had a ship symbol and you had Quebec.

Edit: For #1, if you connected all the way around the Ticonderoga route, through Albany and around to Oswego, then they would be connected with TR lost to raid or siege. That would be unlikely. Protect TR, if you are going west!

Thanks much.

So even though travel between Fort St. John and Quebec is one-way (Fort St. John -> Quebec), supply can flow the other way?

Sorry, disregard that part. Had to sit and look at the map. You lose all that West of TR. For some reason I was thinking Ft.St. John was directly North of Quebec. Shouldn't post while not sleeping

If TR is gone you have Quebec, and anything East, or connected by ship symbols. Sorry for any confusion.
