Confederate player receives 2 SP in any friendly controlled Texas space (both SPs placed in the same space). The space does not need a LOC. The space may not contain Union SPs or forts. If no eligible space exists the SPs are lost.

Message from Union:
might as well get this underway. Army of the Missouri leaves 2 SP behind in Marshall (n6) and with first MP attacks Lee's Army of Tenn in Shreveport. You are OOS and can attempt retreat. I'm suffering cav penalty and so Halleck will be at 0 in any army vs army clash. your reaction?
353 2/27/2018 2:24:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message just a reminder (not sure why i haven't taken advantage of this yet except of course for lacking cavalry)
per entries 295 and 296 you are still OOS with Lee's army.
352 2/27/2018 2:19:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message one quick fix on the log, you have to flip your positive momentum marker to negative for losing SW which costs an additional 3 SW fall.
351 2/27/2018 2:18:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Hey Monk, i want to apologize for my very lackluster pace of making moves of late.

i had a crazy month at work reconciling our year end sales figures for all my accounts and every spare moment I had outside of work and family was spent prepping for The Long View podcast that I did. that aired this week and i'm done with reconciling at work so i commit to making at least 1 play every 2 days from here on out. apologies for making you wait so long. if you are at all interested in a deck building war game that took A few acres of snow and drastically improved it you can watch the stream of it starting at 12 min or wait for the podcast to come out which is be a little shorter and concise.

it also has a great VASSAL module

344 2/12/2018 1:20:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Will you be committing your elite troops? They will certainly be removed after the battle is over as I am guaranteed to score at least the required number of casualties that removes committed elite units
343 2/12/2018 1:13:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Fight. Roll them bones.
342 2/12/2018 1:11:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message over to you to decide if you want to stand and fight or not as you succeeded the retreat roll. i have no cards to play if we fight, just use my best generals at +5.

Confederate defiance against the “War of Northern Aggression” hardens. Increase Confederate SW by three points.

Message from Union:
I keep getting your cards :S

activating AOP yet again (6 SP).
1st and 2nd MP-Manassas - DC pick up 2 (n8)
3rd MP - Manassas pick up 4 (n1 left in Manassas) (n12 with AOP).
4th MP - attack AONV using my best offensive generals (+5 DRM). battle will be a large battle. no chance for an interception but you could possibly retreat if you so chose. will roll for that option but i'm guessing you will stand and fight even if so.
339 2/11/2018 9:27:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #34: 1 / Elite Units
