724 6/22/2018 9:14:00 PM Spring 1865 Confederate Message Well, Richmond and the states of TN & VA are hanging by a thread, and with a CoF surely coming, thatís 40 in SW there. I think youíd likely need *two* turns to bring me to 0. n-)

Sure, Iím game for another, and would be glad to take the Union. I hope I *can* show you how the Union wins. Iíll set it up when I think of a game title...
723 6/22/2018 5:06:00 PM Spring 1865 Union Message Thanks for putting up with my distractions and continued rules waywardness...
I'd play again if you want, but I'd like to try Dixie to see how Union wins.

718 6/22/2018 1:42:00 PM Spring 1865 Union Message Given the way you phrased your post, I await the doom I've just caused myself!

No interception. To put Richmond out of supply, youíd need to continue to Burkeville, but there are enough fine points regarding Flagging and possibly dropping SPs that I will wait for you to specify.

714 6/20/2018 10:36:00 PM Spring 1865 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #114: 3 / Frederick Douglas
Union immediately receives five SPs for raising freemen Negro troops. The SPs can be placed in any single Union controlled space with a LOC in NJ, DE, PA or the space that contains the Union capital that does not contain Confederate SPs or forts. Remove from deck if event is played.

712 6/14/2018 10:07:00 AM Spring 1865 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #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 Confederate:
This instead. Early still takes 3 SP from AotW to AoNV.

681 6/6/2018 8:46:00 PM Spring 1865 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #115: 2 / Galveston
The Confederate player may move 1 SP from a blockade runner port (open or closed) to its associated ungarrisoned Union controlled coastal fort (no Union SP present) and immediately place a Confederate PC marker (does not require a LOC) in the Coastal fort space.
