page 44 and 45 in rules


17. Campaign Game

17.1 Setup The Campaign game uses the 86 setup found in section 2. The Campaign game begins on the Spring 86 game turn and concludes on the Spring 865 game turn, unless an Automatic Campaign Game Victory condition is met prior to the conclusion of the Spring 865 game turn.

17.2 Automatic Campaign Game Victory

17.21 STRATEGIC WILL: The Union player wins instantly if the Confederate SW value reaches zero.

The Confederate player wins instantly at the end of the Fall 1864 game turn if the Union player SW value is less than 50, OR at the conclusion of any game turn if the Confederate SW value is greater than twice the Union SW total. If both sides SW reaches zero during the same phase, the Union player wins.

17.22 CONFEDERATE RESOURCES: The Union wins instantly if all Confederate Resource spaces are destroyed and all Blockade Runner Ports are closed.

17.3 Winning the Campaign Game
At the end of the Spring 1865 game turn, if the Union player has control of ten Confederate or Border States he wins, all other situations are Confederate victories. Each original Union State or Border state that converts to Union first with three or more Confederate PC markers in it cancels one Confederate State controlled by the Union player for victory condition purposes. If a Border state converts to Confederate it does not count for this condition.The Union player gains the equivalent of one state for each 25-point differential of SW points he possesses greater than the Confederacy. For example, if the Union player has 51 more SW points than the South, it counts as two states.
