Re: [eia] Spanish Reinforcement Phase (Sept. 05)

    Apparently the consensus is that Danny's declaration of war was legal as
long as a) he purchased an extra corps marker in June which he has not yet
placed, and b) he had infantry reinforcements coming to him this month.  I
assume that b) is satisfied, so it just remains to find out from Danny if a)
is satisfied.
    Danny, is it the case that Spain purchased an extra corps counter in
June which has not been placed on the board?  (Question to others:  Suppose
Spain has not paid for an extra corps counter.  Would the Swedish corps
counter that Danny placed in Viborg suffice?  That is, could he have placed
that corps in Cartegena?)


P.S.  Sorry if you already answered this question.  Again, I may have missed
your answer in the large volume of recent emails.
