297 6/10/2017 7:04:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message I am okay with For the People, 1866, or Pursuit of Glory. Pursuit would be a good warm up for Illusions of Glory, which is coming out soon. But no preference.
296 6/10/2017 11:54:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Another subject...

We are getting close to ending the game in the next 4-5 turns so would like to discuss what we can do next. We can do
- another FTP
- Pursuit of Glory
- 1866

I am partial to FTP as I have gotten re-enthused about the game since our session. In addition, we have both learned a lot and seems a waste to move on. However, would also like to try my 1866 as I have been unable to scare up a game and would like to use the CB module and the custom ACTS module to ensure they don't fall away through disuse. Then again, I know you have Pursuit and so do I and I have never played it and would like to give it a try someday.

Thoughts and regards,

John

267 6/3/2017 6:12:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
May not be discarded by the Union. Union must use this card as an OC. If at the conclusion of movement, a Union SP is not on or adjacent to Grand Ecore, LA, then the Union loses 5 SW points. If a Union SP is in one of the objective spaces then a Union PC marker can immediately be placed to convert the space or spaces. Remove from deck if Union plays card.

264 6/3/2017 1:04:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message A couple things:

1) Do you intend on losing the 5SW or perhaps are misunderstanding the card?

2) If you are using intentionally to move the AoP, then I can try and intercept at Manassas - did you know that?

Reconsider anything?

Also, see 5.61. Grant is the subordinate to Burnside until Burnside is relieved. That can't be done until your turn as an action.

I will go ahead and do my reinfs but will not strat move until after you take care of the stuff above.

PS I may be wrong so if you see different, let me know.
