472 12/11/2018 12:40:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #75: 2 / Western Concentration Block
Confederate player can either remove or demote an army commander in any state except Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Florida for no political cost. OR Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5 Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
AoCumb (n11) moves from Kingston to attack Charleston once more...with this time a MUCH better result!

Will use the Iron Brigade to hopefully insure a victory this time!

456 11/5/2018 11:50:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Ok, so remove The SP in NC. That should solve The problem
455 10/31/2018 5:11:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message North Atlantic is auto closed anyways, so -2SW for not making thru the blockade for the Rebs from 27- to 25-.

You only receive 8SPs reinforcements since Virginny is Yank controlled. One SP must be eliminated.

Only space I see in North Carolina that an SP can arrive is Charlotte...the rest of the spaces don't have a LOC for the SP to arrive.

Your choice on which SP doesn't come into the game...cannot be one of the blockaders to be elim.

I will resolve the battle, but I must tell you that you will be out of supply. There are Yank PCs in Decatur, Tullhoma, and Knoxville.
Not trying to steer you to not move to attack Dover, just sayin...so no surprises.

Still wish to attack Dover? (and by the way, NICE TO HAVE YOU BACK!)
440 9/21/2018 4:35:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #116: 2 / Confederate River Flotilla

Now, how about that last card play?
437 7/28/2018 10:38:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Polk performs a miracle!

Yanks take 2SPs cas (even though the combat chart calls for 3 loss, only can cause 2x cas with 1SP) AND looses the battle so must retire back to Grand Jct which has 1SP...p/u that SP but looses 1 cause of Reb territory => AoTenn - n5.

Polk looses his SP, but retains the fort (empty)...Ironclad still in play.

Congratulations, that is the best defense I have ever experienced in this game! Geez....it had to happen with this attack!!!

429 7/17/2018 11:27:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Union:
AoTenn (n11) moves from Decatur to Tulhoma (drops 1), then to Corinth (drops 1), then to Pittsburgh Landing (drops 1), then back to Corinth, then to Grand Junction (drops 1), then to attack Memphis with &SPs.

Cards to play? If not, I will adjudicate the battle.

424 7/10/2018 5:45:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #40: 3 / Emergency Call for Volunteers
Union receives five SPs, no more than two SPs in any space. Placement spaces must be friendly controlled, have a LOC and be free of Confederate SPs or forts.

The Rebs have the initiative early in the game and then to big advantage of internal lines to support their defense after Grant arrives. You have had a tough time, but this game is still within your reach...if you can pool your resources. I know it looks bleek, but a few bad hands and I could be on the ropes.
415 6/4/2018 4:40:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Guess I have enough movement points to get to Columbia SC.
