412 3/20/2017 5:39:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message It was pretty tense, and definitely had a lot of back and forth...

I'm starting to conclude its not possible to be too aggressive with the CSA... :)

Your use of Naval attacks and retreats with your armies, I'm stealing that and adding it to my bag of tricks!
411 3/20/2017 5:29:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Geoff: That was GREAT Game...I have won many, lost many, but I don't think I have had more fun than this game.

396 3/20/2017 3:30:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message OK, just for the record keeping...if Rosecrans was in AoP, and took 3 with him to Ft. Gadson, leaving AoP with 3 SP, and then Buell from AoT took 3Sp, and returned to AoT with 2 SP, Activating AoT means only 3 SP, but I can take one SP from AoP (that did not move) making AoT 4SP total...then march it north to clear out the CSA SP's...first, we will take on Philly...
395 3/20/2017 3:25:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Well, I hate surrendering...lol...so here goes...

394 3/20/2017 3:19:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Sorry, you get 2 more moves, forgot it was a campaign card..

389 3/20/2017 3:14:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Smith spends a lot of time on the Turn Track!
388 3/20/2017 3:13:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message I don't think it could be McDowell, since he's in AoP, which only had 3 SPs, since 3 previously sailed to Fort Gadson.

Ok, if I say the attack was Buell and 3 SPs from AotT? Same effect and dice overall..
387 3/20/2017 2:41:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message 1-1*, but because it is a Capital space, 7.33 does not apply. Smith goes to the track, but USA does not capture the CSA capital...
I'll finish out the moves, but without that happening, I can't prevent you from doubling me...
