I was looking at game with Dave Cross...
I love this card.
Dover and NOLA desert? Not sure why the Butler policy of sheltering slaves as Contraband makes troops disappear, but I'll go with it.

43 4/22/2017 1:28:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate 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 Army’s Commanding General’s battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry general’s 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.

39 4/22/2017 1:02:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #32: 3 / Dixie Land
Confederate defiance against the “War of Northern Aggression” hardens. Increase Confederate SW by three points.

Message from Union:
Thought about this forever. I hope it's the best move. I know I begrudginly passed on more wily options, but I've lost NoVa in too many games. Got to be conservative...

The Union Amphibious Assault modifier is increased by two.

Suppose this would've come in handy at Columbus, but I didn't want to give a moments pause in the flurry of moves from the Campaigns. I was struggling to find something to move. That was ridiculous.

17 4/16/2017 1:58:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message These optional rail rules compound the problem: there is no friggin' way for me to prevent the WG from being closed down, and I can't counterpunch toward Pittsburgh, leaving you free to make up for the men run out of DC. I detect a balance problem.
