627 12/14/2017 9:48:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Play Strategy card as Event #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Union:
Well as we are going to this anyway at some point..might as well do it now.
Grant and the AOP load up and attack Richmond

590 11/13/2017 10:16:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message BTDT. Grant's real advantage is that he moves a lot, as i think you've demonstrated.
589 11/13/2017 10:16:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #29: 2 / Crittenden Compromise
Union places (or flips in border states) two PC markers in any spaces free of Confederate SPs or forts which are not Resource spaces, Blockade Runner Ports, or Coastal forts. Void after Emancipation Proclamation. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
Activate Pope. Leave 2SP in Fort in Grafton. Move alone to Wheeling, to Zanesville to Coshocton, Pickup Halleck and 6SP, move to Columbus Drop 1, To Dayton Drop 1 to Cincinnati Drop 1, to Vernon Drop 1, end in Bloomington with 2SP and both generals.

This will retake Ohio, place CSA AOW OOS thus preventing the conversion of Terre Haute and infliced attrition loss. Richmond will wait until next turn.
588 11/13/2017 10:12:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Message Having 1 3point card which I played to protect Washington and only 2 pointers made this turn hard..then add in that Grant always got a mediocre result!
587 11/13/2017 10:11:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message Shows what i know. Good to see the cavalry holding out...
586 11/13/2017 10:10:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Message I've been counting Wheeler the whole time.he is the 1SP you have left.
585 11/13/2017 9:59:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message Hmm, I wonder if we've been miscounting the number of SP I have in Richmond, just stumbled across Wheeler in the stack and he's worth 1...

Oh well I am not certain I am bothered.
584 11/13/2017 9:58:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #8: 1 / 3 Cigars
Play this card to make an automatic one or two space interception. Intervening space must be friendly controlled and free of enemy SPs. The intervening space may be the one just exited by the moving enemy force. No Generals or SPs may be picked up or dropped off during intercept.

Message from Confederate:
I can't think of any thing useful to do with this so division move 1sp from Memphis n1 to Columbus KY n2
583 11/13/2017 9:49:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message I started off this turn assuming that I'd lose both the ANV and Richmond, didn't realise it would take so long!

579 11/13/2017 9:34:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 1 / Detached Cavalry
Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Armyís Commanding Generalís battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry generalís battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

Interrupt enemy force currently moving to no more than one space of movement. (Converting a space counts as movement.) Applies to only one move during a Major or Minor campaign card, but not a special army-naval move.
