212 8/11/2017 11:52:00 AM Summer 1862 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.

177 6/25/2017 4:44:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I had another perfect hand.

In standard game it could allow me to be very aggressive. Even in this game i could be very tempted but Washington Defences dissuaded me.

This favourable hand allowed e to rerate my defensive position. Blockade down to 1 and both KY and MO on CSA side, i will not immediately fall behind in SP race.

Can I do more harm? Possibly.

Is cost acceptable? Uncertain.

Should I be concerned with Pensacola? Unlikely but let's keep an eye on it.

141 6/9/2017 5:02:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message This is a two player game. A weak hand is only weak if the other side has (in contrast) something powerful to throw at you.

I was lucky to save AONV. It wouldn't be possible without drawing a campaign. I am happy to save my skin you are happy to get rid of a bad hand.

These are in balance.

Real bad luck starts with a considerable delta in luck and this is always a comparative study.

When I started the game I had a "defensive" priority. Two cards I drew in each hands tilted me to attempt another course of action than planned. "Religeous Revival" on turn 1. "Concentration " on Turn 2. Such dose of luck normally "kills" even a bull! However at the last move of each Turn you made two incredible interceptions on 1/6 probability. ... which did not only stop invasion of North East but also trapped AONV.

So in a way, it doesn't amtter how many legions you have if you are going into a "double envelopment" with them. :-)))

By thw way, my version of playing your hand would have 2-3 Forts rather than the long OPS que. ... But that's why the game is fun. No two player play it the sameway.

Overall, this is a "balanced game" so far from my assesment of "delat luck". Imagine you failed that intercept at the end of turn 2 and on turn 3 we drew the same hands! Then it would have been a considerable delta.


140 6/8/2017 7:14:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message What I find interesting is most folks bemoan weak hands. I find them more interesting as they force you to think harder. Overall, not too bad, but my Presidency for a three card was what I was thinking when I saw last turn's hand.

125 6/6/2017 4:09:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message How can you reassign JJ? He is the commander in chief.

As far as i know you camnot remove the commander in chief and cavalry commanders for this election.

Other options are OK for me.
124 6/5/2017 5:18:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message A brief moment, my lovely wife had a software issue that took immediate priority because she said that was the case.

After I removed the two SPs and prior to your move, the AoNVa has two SPs, which means it can have a total of 5 generals.

At the moment I removed the 1SP from Richmond, there was one too many generals in Richmond, so I choose to send Van Dorn off to the gt track.

The implications of this are if you move the AoNVa to Richmond it will absorb Beauregard and the AoNVa will have 6 generals. I wanted to give you the option to know this before you made the move as it will be up to me to remove one of the generals if you do so. I can choose to have JJ reassigned.

I just wanted to make sure this was all clear. I intended to write this prior to you making what I expected you to do, but as I said, my boss interceded.
