438 8/15/2017 11:00:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message On second thought..same card but let's use the 2 fort option. One in Manassas and one in Salem/Vindalia.
437 8/15/2017 10:13:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #113: 2 / Washington Defenses
The Union player may place 3 forts in friendly controlled spaces, unoccupied by Confederate SPs, on or within two spaces of the Union Capital (any location) OR 2 forts in any friendly controlled spaces unoccupied by Confederate SPs. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
Forts in Fredericksburg, Manassas and well Baltimore as I get three!
436 8/15/2017 10:11:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message Plan? I can't recall mine either. A couple of the cards are obvious as to how to use them, but as for the great scheme...er..
435 8/15/2017 3:50:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message I am fairly sure I had a plan but damned if I can remember what it was, time for a new one I guess.

Confederate places a total of two SPs in any single space in KY, MO, MD or DE that contains a general or army in these states. The space can be controlled by either side or neutral and does not require a LOC. Remove from deck if event is played.

433 8/11/2017 9:06:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Whoops, sorry it's still been crazy, will do this RSN though.
432 8/10/2017 10:21:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Nudge :)
431 7/17/2017 9:57:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message We can put Little Mac near the front of the line if that will help! :)
430 7/17/2017 9:24:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message It was a really good week. Mike and Lynn were fantastic I am really grateful for their organisation and hard work. Still not certain why they put in so much effort but I am grateful. It was a shame you could not be there but I entirely get that. Maybe n X time 😀.

Stuck out a clients all week so even this is tricky but we will be avenged for Lee
429 7/17/2017 8:58:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message I am happy to hear that it was everything you wanted it to be. Did the whole wall did they? That's something they will long remember. I wish I could have been there. Lorraine isn't up to it at all, and that was the only week Riley had off from medical school so we took her to Maine.

The loss of Lee must have really stunned the Confederacy! :)
428 7/13/2017 4:31:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Yes we got back on Sunday, sadly got stuck in stationery traffic on the A1 just half an hour from home and took three hours to Complete journey.

The trip itself was great: Adam and one of his friends managed the whole length, actually finishing a day early when they powered through doing 45km on the final day to reach the place we were staying at.

Lynn was a fabulous cook and Mike an almost as fabulous tourist guide. The first house we stayed at was really nice (swimming pool, cinema room, well kept and good location in Gateshead). The second house was a bit of a dump and we were glad to leave it.

We all managed a good bit of walking and history and even squeezed in a bit of gaming.

Overall it was a very welcome break from the stress of work, sadly back to juggling impossible deadlines.

Will post up my move after we finish mourning Lee :-)
427 7/12/2017 10:52:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Back from Northumbria and Cumbria?
426 6/30/2017 9:19:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message I thought perhaps that would be the case...enjoy. I know how much you have always wanted to do this.
425 6/30/2017 3:30:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message But of course :-)

Anyway I am crazy busy dealing with cliff edge stuff then away next week doing the Walk. So probably no formal move for a while, sorry.

414 6/27/2017 8:30:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message The Western Theatre started with AOT on 1 and no other units.
Reinforcements of 6SP into AOT and 4 into Pana for AOT 7, Pana 4
3SP moved from AoC to AoT AOT N10
2SP from AoT to Pana AOT N8, Pana N6
3SP left with Hancock in Vincennes so 5 move to Pana to join for net of 11. Only way that is wrong is if AOT ended last turn with 2SP but it didn't, it was down to 1. If I am wrong some how..we will only attack with 11 so as to keep it a medium battle leaving 1 immediately behind in Pana, but I am sure I am not wrong :)
413 6/27/2017 3:53:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Actually I make your AoT on 12 not 11, after SMing 2 to Pana it was on 6
412 6/27/2017 3:52:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message That is correct on all counts, roll away
411 6/26/2017 7:13:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #2: 2 / Copperheads
Reduce Union SW by two points, or place two PC markers in Ohio (must be placed in spaces free of Union SPs).

Message from Union:
Helps to play the card!
410 6/26/2017 7:11:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message For some reasons rivers and I never quite understand each other..as I see it you can't cross the Wabash at Terre Huate or Vincennes; period. You can march from to La Fayette if you can get up there. Also even with a fort at St. Louis you can't cross into Alton, IL. So if all of that is true..load up the AOT. Burnside and the boys (5SP) march (leaving Hancock with 3 SP in Vincennes) to Greencastle, Lafayette, Urbana, Decatur.., Pana..absorb Meade and 6sp N11 Attack into the AoW

381 6/26/2017 8:42:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message The card says "No SP, general, or army marker may be moved twice with the same campaign card" So you can't move SP from the AoW a 2nd time.
380 6/26/2017 8:41:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Ah good point, hmmm, OK Leave AoW on 5 and send Pemberton on a long march to Springfield with 1sp.

The Union removes one SP (Confederate chooses) within two spaces (including a river connection) of a Confederate SP due to poor leadership. A Union SP can be removed from a Coastal fort.

Message from Union:
Oh to have a Major Campaign card right now! Sadly this is all I have..so lots of things can't be done regardless..and of the ones I can do with this card..a fort doesn't seem to be of use..reshuffling the deck chairs is premature with the stacks of generals we both have to place next season..so I guess it comes down to Grant and the AoP.

341 6/22/2017 9:06:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Right there's some confusion here, AoT is in Vincenees not Pana, it had to retreat back where it came from and I had missed you saying it retreated to Pana.

Anyway i had assumed AoM then went to TerrHaut which is still one away from Salem, I assume you are OK with that?

You can then do broadly the same moves through Vincennes rathr than Pana.
