303 12/13/2017 6:16:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message I'll do that. You are up.
302 12/13/2017 5:56:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Sorry, yes you could send both of them by putting them in any of the available states and then just putting them on rails to the army of Mississippi
301 12/13/2017 5:55:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message So you need to redo two of those reinforcement moves and then strategic move both of those guys from wherever you put them. You canít rail them into any locations that are OOS, so remember that when doing your rails
300 12/13/2017 5:52:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message My message was about the Army of Miss., which is in supply.
299 12/13/2017 5:50:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message No, you canít place any troops into a location as reinforcements if it is not in supply unless it is an event card that says no LOC needed

So per my previous messages, all of Texas and all of Arkansas and part of Louisiana are in eligible to receive force placement
298 12/13/2017 5:34:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message So if I put those 2 SPs into the Army of Miss., the problem is solved?
297 12/11/2017 12:49:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message if you want to make any other chagnes in light of this reality, please let me know.
296 12/11/2017 12:49:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message so that Camden AR placement and Shreveport LA (directly into A of Tenn were invalid. pulling those guys out and you can replace and re-do 2 strat moves.
1 can still go into LA like i said in previous message just has to be a space with LOC. the other SP can't go into AR as all those spaces are OOS so that one is sitting next to LA state symbol along with the other SP.
295 12/11/2017 12:46:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message my screw up, you are actually OOS with your Army of Tenn. per 8.11 the CSA can't trace supply across rivers where union has naval control and the only spot where you can cross any of those rivers is at Little Rock but that path is a dead end in either Madison, AR or Arkansas Post, AR.

they can trace LOC to Little Rock, AR but per 8.2 in order for a BR port or Resource Space to be an ultimate supply source, they have to be able to trace LOC to to another open BR port or RS. Little Rock currently cannot do so.

it was my oversight so let's skip the double attrition penalty from attrition phase but you can't place any reinf anywhere in AR as not one space in AR has LOC and anything in LA state west of Miss River is also OOS so those 2 will have to be redone and you can re-do the 2 strategic movements.

can't use strat movements for any OOS SPs either so the A of Tenn will have to find a way to get back in supply before it can get fresh reinforcements or rail/strat move infantry.
294 12/11/2017 12:29:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message interesting situation here
i have finally established a nice base of operations in western Tennessee with the river in my control but your control of Columbus KY means you could feasibly move some men there and plop a fort or ironclad and suddenly i'm left with just one route to trace my supply through New Madrid and up to MO.

I'm going to go ahead and attempt interception into Humboldt.
Pope needs 2 or less thanks to presence of Pleasonton.
253 11/13/2017 7:42:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message I'm thinking but I do have options:
1. I can do a discretionary retreat at 2 or less Pope with cavalry DRM. Union can do discretionary retreat as long as it's to original union state port and i'm not passing any forts or ironclads which i'm not.

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1806041/can-union-do-discretionary-retreat-723-724-naval-m

2. I could also attempt an interception into Humboldt on 2 or less and have supply there as i would be on defense in Humboldt and adjacent to New Madrid which can trace supply both overland through MO and trace supply through rivers as you no longer deny my naval control over this whole section of MS river so i can trace even through riverine ports with CSA flags and/or CSA SPs.

Let me know if you need reference for anything. I will probably end up fighting it out with you as I do have supply by tracing adjacent spaces (riverine ports) upriver to New Madrid-Columbus-Cairo then RR off northern map edge.
252 11/13/2017 1:40:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message No interception possible. Flag Humboldt. To Memphis.

249 11/10/2017 7:11:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message No intercept.
248 11/10/2017 12:29:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message and i just realized that since there is no fort there and I have 10 or more SPs, I will overrun you with no combat.

so no combat roll needed, just a card play to interrupt/intercept or nothing.
247 11/10/2017 12:27:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #38: 2 / George W. Rains, Increased Gunpowder Production
Confederate immediately places two SPs in any friendly controlled space in Tennessee with an LOC (both SPs are placed in the same space). The SPs cannot be placed in a Pro Union space or one occupied by Union SPs or fort.

Message from Union:
Lincoln has grown exceedingly impatient as he's almost half way to re-election and no major cities have burned nor have any states fallen. A of C marches out to swing through MO into TN to convert Humboldt with 5th MP then attacks Memphis with last MP.

do you have any reactions/interruptions? no generals adjacent at any point to roll for interceptions.

if you have no card to play, please roll combat or let me know and I can do it. If I win I still have to be done as my MPs are expended.
246 11/10/2017 12:18:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message I think on your way to Nashville you would want to convert Bowling Green on the way. You can still get to Nashville no problem and once on the BG space you are in supply again so you can make the conversion.

will do that in my log before my move and let me know if there is some reason you don't want to do that.
245 11/9/2017 6:51:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #58: 2 / Admiral Porter

205 10/4/2017 12:49:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #74: 2 / Political Crisis
The Union player may remove or demote one Union general for no SW cost. The cost for promoting a general with a lower political value still applies. OR remove ANY Union non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game.

Message from Union:
activating the eager Army of Cumberland who will move 2 MPs to Columbus pick up that 1 SP then 3rd MP attack McKenzie TN and the Army of MIss. Do you want to attempt an interception with Price into A of Miss or attempt retreat?
204 10/4/2017 12:43:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message you actually lost 1-1. I only scored 1 SP of damage with my roll of 6. correcting and doing my move.

Corpus did fine, some minor damage on island and north side. the towns north of us 20-30 miles like aransas pass and rockport got levelled. lots of work to do but people have been very generous and i went to volunteer ata friend's church in Rockport the saturday after the hurricane weekend and tons of people came during the day from as far as Oklahoma and Louisiana with water, canned food, diapers, etc. it was great to see the response from all these private individuals and groups but it's going to take awhile for the area to be rebuilt.
