379 3/27/2017 11:12:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message LOL, might have been better off in the long run to move JoeJohn to ANV then move the ANV to Grafton...or to Frederick...but with that intercept, it would have foiled all my plans anyways!

I'll do the end of the turn stuff...once again, you have prevailed...looks like I will now be on the defensive for the rest of the game. :-(
378 3/27/2017 11:00:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message So Rosey and company are in Pittsburg after the miracle save. You are just too tricky for me.
377 3/27/2017 10:55:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Duh. Thanks. It is too early in the morning.
376 3/27/2017 10:41:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message OK, you are cornfused in the frenzy of victory...

Msg 323, has JoeJohn with 6SPs in Rogersville. He is moving, not ANV.

So, your resolution is as follows:
Request: 6-sided die x 4

Message from Union:
Rebs attacking with 4SPs, +1 Gen
Yanks defending with 4SPs, +2 Intercept, +1Gen, +2 for Rebs OOS
3rd roll for Reb Gens

CSA result => 6 total
USA result => 7 total
third roll CSA cas => not necessary for JorJohn doesn't get up to 10 total...

JoeJohn looses 2SPs and retires to Wheeling, loosing another SP for total of 3, but p/u 1 which is already in Wheeling => so now 2 at the end of the turn.

That look good to you?
375 3/27/2017 10:17:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Nix all that. You dad FOUR SP left from the last battle. If you drop 2, you will be attacking with 2 SPs. AND you would be attacking Uniontown, not Pittsburg.

What do you want to do...as loathe as I am to give up that interception...

ANV (n6) moves from Grafton but first converts Grafton then moves to Franklin, then to Lewisburg...your options...if no intercept, then attack Curtis & his 4SPs.
347 3/21/2017 10:56:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Woops. Rosey takes 4 SPs with him now that ANV is still 6SPs strong. AoP at 6sps.

345 3/21/2017 10:53:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Oooh. What threw me off was your attacking the SP in Franklin. There was no SP or fort there. There was one in Strasburg, which is what I though you attacked.

ANV in Grafton and Rosey moves to Pittsburg.
344 3/21/2017 12:40:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message No, no, no...

Moved from Manassas to Gordonsville, where you tried to intercept, but failed, then I moved to Charlottesville, then to Staunton, then to Franklin and fought the 1SP there and won (n5), then converted the space and went to Grafton and destroyed the fort there.


You still wish to to go Grafton with Rosey & 3SPs?

340 3/20/2017 3:28:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message If you convert Strasburg, how do you get to Grafton?
You only have two MPs left after razing the Ground at Strasburg. You were in the Wilderness at the beginning of the move.
339 3/20/2017 12:45:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Didn't have a fort on my map for Franklin, but result is the same...
