500 2/27/2017 3:58:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message I doubt I'll show you how to do it as I invariably end up losing as the CSA but I might show you some other options...
499 2/24/2017 4:08:00 PM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Oh..and if I won the 1st battle..you couldn't get to major battle the 2nd time...but I rolled a 1.
498 2/24/2017 1:54:00 PM Spring 1864 Confederate Message I miscalculated that 8 in ANV with 2 in Richmond and 1 or 2 more that I could move up from Charleston would be enough to hold you off. I knew that I needed at least 1/2 the force you had in AOP/Washington..but once you get Grant or Sherman in there I need more than that. I should have stripped at least 2 more from Atlanta and Memphis and then we would have likely held out all season.
497 2/24/2017 11:10:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Your next move you take Fort Monroe..destroy the ANV and close down Virginia and the game will end at the political phase when you get the points for Virginia.
I guess you may be right..I do a great job of holding CSA territory..and losing the war. The real war they lost tons of states but still fought on. Guess I ought to be USA so you can show me how to do it!
496 2/24/2017 11:09:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message In case not, then convert Williamsburg and over to you!
495 2/24/2017 11:05:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message this game is more or less done, shall we try again but I'll be CSA? You may enjoy rolling over me!
494 2/24/2017 11:05:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message I think partly you don't open other fronts against me so I end up with one or two giant armies that can just bludgeon away until you vapourise. If you had a couple of small corps under Jackson/Longstreet and the like and the odd cavalry brigade roaming around in Kentucky you might stand a chance.

Also you only need 110 SW and the FI card to come up to pretty much have the game in the bag, so you can spend turns getting Kentucky or Missouri on side and then the Unuion has to burn a tonne of cards stopping you or cancelling it out. The union weakness is not troops, it's leaders and card!
493 2/24/2017 11:00:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Somehow I don't gain enough SW..but it is so hard for CSA to gain it..they have to win Large Battles..or take a neutral state..briefly until they lose it. You have Florida and Virginia and part of Tennessee and I am out of SW..I just don't get how CSA can over come your huge advantage in manpower.
492 2/24/2017 10:58:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Oh boy..safe inside the impregnable Fort Monroe!...it means will take 2 of you with us when you crush us!

ANV tries to retreat to Fort Monroe
490 2/24/2017 10:56:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message Actually I think if you intercept it can't be an overrun although you'll still be annihilated so it's a bit moot.

OK we convert Richmond, SW
USA:+12 = 121+
CSA:-12 = 13-

Onto Dewey's Buff, where you can intercept again (I guess not?) convert
then to Williamsburg where you can flee...
489 2/24/2017 10:53:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Intercept..at 10-1? What's the point it is automatic victory for you unless I am in a fort! We shall watch as you burn it.

487 2/24/2017 10:36:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message Actually you can only have 4 generals so Stuart will join Jackson on the turn track.

485 2/24/2017 10:34:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message Actually I'd rather Jackson went to the turn track if that's OK.
484 2/24/2017 10:32:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Lost another major battle..N25-
483 2/24/2017 10:30:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message It worked out pretty much the same as staying and fighting..but it was some chance of alternative..
482 2/24/2017 10:29:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Smith dies..and I have too many generals..as there is only 1SP left..does that mean you have to move one of the Cavs to the turn track as the one of those you toss?
481 2/24/2017 10:29:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message You know I don't think retreating from Richmond worked out quite the way you wanted!

I keep finding new and different ways to lose. If I fight..I likely win the battle, but lose the ANV..and I can only get 2SP into Richmond at most..and you take it next turn. If I run..the capital displaces but Richmond doesn't burn right off and ANV survives..and I about a 1/3 chance of saving the city with a counterattack but some chance is better than none...ANV retreats 1-3

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.
