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...

Discard your best card and play your last one, please! :-)
357 3/24/2017 8:31:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Yanks still have 1SP still in Pittsburgh, right?
356 3/24/2017 8:31:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message I feel your pain...as the Yanks, constantly struggling with garnering the resources that I need and reacting to the Rebs.

348 3/21/2017 12:39:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #53: 1 / CSS Arkansas
Confederate may place one Ironclad in a controlled port or coastal fort space.

Message from Confederate:
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.
346 3/21/2017 10:55:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message ANV still at n6.

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?
343 3/20/2017 10:54:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #101: 3 / Chickamauga
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.

Message from Union:
Rosecrans with 3SPs moves from Manassas [AoP n7] to Grafton.
342 3/20/2017 6:43:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message ---oh, so you haven't actually gotten to grafton...
Franklin it is.
341 3/20/2017 4:11:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message I didn't go to Strasburg...went to Franklin...
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...

ANV (n5) continues by converting the space, then attacking the empty fort at Grafton.

Done!
338 3/20/2017 11:04:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message 1/3* Fort destroyed.

SOOOO... Curtis picks up the one SP in

328 3/16/2017 8:02:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message I cannot find where you put 3SPs into Grafton...either thru end of the turn stuff, strat moves or otherwise. My map has no SPs in Grafton prior to your move from WDC with Curtis.

Help me here bud.
327 3/16/2017 10:27:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message So, there are no longer any SPs in the fort at Strasburg, Grafton with 3SPs & the fort and Curtis with 1SP in Wytheville?

1 SP at Strasburg [six left with McClellan in the interception.

3SPs in Grafton after Curtis took 1SP

4 SPs with Curtis... he took the three in WDC and added one from Grafton.
326 3/16/2017 2:16:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message So, there are no longer any SPs in the fort at Strasburg, Grafton with 3SPs & the fort and Curtis with 1SP in Wytheville?

308 3/12/2017 Spring 1863 Union Message That's what I would have thought, but 5.24 says:

If as a consequence of movement, interception, or retreat there would be more than one friendly army in a space at the end of a move, one of the armies is immediately removed from play (prior to battle if necessary) with all generals being removed and available for returning to play next turn, except Confederate cavalry generals return in three game turns.
307 3/11/2017 11:40:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Wheeler was NOT eliminated or killed...so he comes back in the next season.
306 3/10/2017 11:37:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message "According the 5.24, Wheeler comes back in the fall of 1863. Does that change things for you?"

Should have been more specific. Do you want to redo your leader placement?
