All of which means that we say goodnight to Lockz of Turkey, thanks for playing and I hope you'll be in the next game. There is also plenty of dislodging going on:
The Turkish fleet in Greece can retreat to Albania but as they will be disbanded anyway in the builds phase it's not necessary as it can't affect other retreats.
The German army in Marseilles can retreat to Piedmont or it can disband.
The French army in Munich can retreat to Tyrolia or it can disband
The English fleet in the Norwegian Sea can retreat to Clyde, Edinburgh, North Atlantic or it can disband
The Italian army in Venice can retreat to Piedmont, Apulia, Tuscany or it can disband.
Note that if two or more units are ordered to retreat to the same province, then they are all disbanded instead (p18 of the rules).
Please get those orders to me ASAP and by PM rather than posting them in the thread - it's not so important if there's only one retreat or only a couple of retreats that won't affect anything else on the map, but in this case it's important to be secret. Also note that you are not supposed to discuss your retreats before submitting orders but there's obviously no way I can enforce that so you are on the honour system.
