438 9/19/2018 10:31:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Hope all is well with you & your family...

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

Move to Chattanooga, pick up the 1 Sp there

Message from Union:
AoCumb (n9) moves from Florence to Kingston (converts), then to Charleston...to attack the 4SPs there...

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.

How did the rebels survive so long historically?

Either the Union acted really stupid, or the rebels were extremely clever and lucky.
Guess a little of both.

374 9/25/2017 4:29:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Yes, I will do that. Since I already have 3 Sp in Charleston, I will a the second SP to Charleston. (4 SP)
373 9/10/2017 9:37:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message You could have strat moved that SP in the fort to the ANV in Wilmington...just thought of that...

Instead of NOT executing any strats, would you like to do that...even though we have finished that part of the turn sequence, that would be ok with me.

You want to that?
372 9/10/2017 9:31:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Sven, can only bring in 1SP to Wilmington to make ANV n4.
Yes, you still have 1SP in the fort - Fort Fisher.

ANV suffers 1SP loss due to attrit and another SP loss due to no LOC forage => ANV n3.
Feelin guilty about using this card, but I gotta use it!

Since you only have 3SPs with the army, you must send 3 Gens out of the 8 that you have with the army to the turn record track to come back next season. You pick the 3...then play your next card.

355 5/21/2017 12:40:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message LOL, yeah, ole Grant is comin but the Reb still have a LOT of punch left on the board...it will be a tooth & toe nail fight, me thinks.

North Atlantic is closed for there is no LOC to Wilmington nor Morehead City. So -2SW for that area and NO reinforcements may be deployed there.

Also, Franklin is isolated in Tennessee, so NO reinforcements may be deplyed in that space aw well => some other location in Tennessee?

SW impact of the blockade:
-2SW for North Atl & South ATL => -4 for the Rebs from 30- to 26-.

I await your Tennessee SP placement, then for my Strategic movement.

347 3/30/2017 4:34:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Hey, I got the game files. I have tried to get the game running. The problem is that I can open the game box. But, I cannot open the game save file since it gives me the message need civil war gamebox 4.0 or something like that. The version you send me (and the version I found on GMT Games website) is 3.1 . Do you have two different Civil war gameboxes? Otherwise, I am afraid I cannot get the game running. I have tried several times, but no success!
