491 8/13/2018 12:39:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message only 1 error. you don't get to put down US markers on teh CSA markers for taking the state of MO over.

getting to remove all enemy markers (without their SP or fort) and put down your own only happens when you are the first to take over a border state from neutral condition. not a huge deal but you never know when i tmight matter. will fix that then move on.
490 8/13/2018 12:17:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Hey Alex, i'm reviewing the logs now and preparing to do my move. sorry for the long delay. if everything goes as planned (fingers crossed) going forward then i can make a move every few days. life has been so crazy with my wife's rough pregnancy with a kid already at home and some turmoil at work.

480 6/15/2018 3:24:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #103: 3 / Seven Days/Chattanooga
Either player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (10 space maximum) to the same space with a General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more enemy SPs or fort. OR play this card as an automatic 2 space interception. Intervening space must be friendly controlled and free of enemy SPs. The intervening space may be the one just exited by the moving enemy force. No Generals or SPs may be picked up or dropped off during the intercept.

Message from Union:
Sadly no... I toyed with the idea of using this 3 card differently, but I think I have to seize this opportunity.

AoC activates in Ironton and drops 1 (n7)
m1 Rolla d1 (n6)
m2 Jeff City d1 (n5)
m3 Lexington d1 (n4)
m4 Kansas City d1 (n3)
m5 Springfield; auto 1*-1 (3-1 ratio+4 for rating); no general casualty due to ratio. AoC is n2; d1, n1
m6 end Rolla n2
479 6/15/2018 2:54:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message back to you. please don't have a campaign card.
478 6/15/2018 2:53:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message 2*-3. Van Dorn down to 1 and retreats to Greenville, n2. AOC n8.

453 4/23/2018 3:07:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #78: 3 / Personal Advisor
Either player may remove or demote from army command one general for no SW penalty. Penalties for promoting a general with a lower political value still apply. OR remove ANY non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game.

444 3/18/2018 3:03:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #125: 1 / Confederate Locomotive shortage
The Union player may randomly remove one strategy card from the Confederate hand, which is discarded. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:

A lack of trains costs the Confederates.
443 3/18/2018 2:35:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #73: 1 / Ball's Bluff
The Union removes one SP (Confederate chooses) within two spaces (including a river connection) of a Confederate SP due to poor leadership. A Union SP can be removed from a Coastal fort.

Van Dorn by rail to A of the West. Pemberton by rail over to A of Tenn. back to you.
442 3/16/2018 1:50:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #55: 1 / CSS Tennessee
Confederate may place one Ironclad in a controlled port or coastal fort space.

I guess the prudent move is a retreat. AoC flees to the east.
441 3/16/2018 1:27:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Apologies again for the delay! Move incoming today.
440 2/27/2018 2:32:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Hey Xanderini,

Wanted to make sure you were still up to continue our game! it's still your move

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

435 1/17/2018 4:27:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message typo i said 7 attacking 13, it was 7 vs 12. had it been 7 vs 13 would be large battle.

and a 1. very lucky turn for the rebels as a general will bite the dust.

Grant will also have to lose an extra SP for retreating into hostile territory. if i were able to press the attack with more MP's he could now choose to retreat without fighting but as he would only be able to retreat into another hostile territory he would have to lose 1 SP for each hostile space he retreated into.

Message from Confederate:
Phew, 3*-1. Grant has to retreat to a hostile space (if my forts weren't there at Dover, you could retreat via navy even before combat but thankfully you can't with no naval control on these upriver portions.

I will put him in Murfreesboro for now as that is closer to getting back to your friendly supply lines. you can change to Franklin if you would like.

I had you OOS so i can't suffer gen casualty.
Union loses 1 on a 1 on.ly.

Message from Confederate:
medium battle...just barely at 7 attacking 13. should have picked up 1 from Pemberton.

Longstreet/Forrest/Smith +6 +2 enemy OOS = total +8

Grant (only 1 def due to cav penalty and also as he is less now than Longstreet's 2 offense, he only gets 1 subordinate)/Hooker (all others only 1 or less) = +2
432 1/17/2018 4:16:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message sorry for the super long wait. 4th MP move to Bowling green drop 1 SP to cut your supply.

5th and 6th to Clarksville then attack Nashville.

you can't attempt retreat. in order to do discretionary retreat before any battle this impulse you have to have a friend or neutral space to retreat to.
431 1/7/2018 10:49:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Sorry, been so busy since I got back from a two-week vacation over the holidays. I will make my move tonight

428 12/12/2017 1:17:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #58: 2 / Admiral Porter
Union may make a naval move with up to three SPs plus one general. If an amphibious assault occurs, you receive an additional +2 DRM. Add +2DRM to any Running the Guns die roll.

Message from Confederate:
Better try to do something to contain Grant while he is without cavalry and will be suffering cav intel penalties.

Activate Longstreet and his Army of the West (7 SP)

1st MP: McKenzie, TN PU 1 SP (n8)
2nd-3rd MPs: Dover, TN - Clarksville, TN.

reactions? Grant can attempt interception on a 3 or less or you may have interception card or activation cancellation card.
427 12/5/2017 2:07:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
May not be discarded by the Union. Union must use this card as an OC. If at the conclusion of movement, a Union SP is not on or adjacent to Grand Ecore, LA, then the Union loses 5 SW points. If a Union SP is in one of the objective spaces then a Union PC marker can immediately be placed to convert the space or spaces. Remove from deck if Union plays card.

Message from Union:
Event, simply to remove the card:

Grant forms the Army of the Cumberland in Nashville, TN.

Red River: USA SW 82- -5= 77-.
426 12/5/2017 2:03:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for the well wishes! The test hopefully went well, but I won't know for a bit. Feeling ready to jump back into things :) Thanks for the patience.
425 12/3/2017 2:53:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message how was your test on 12/2? take your time coming back if you are still unwinding from that ordeal!
424 11/22/2017 1:07:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for checking in. I'm set to take a rather important standardized test on 12/2, so I might be out of commission until then, if that's fine by you. Sorry again for the delay. I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
423 11/21/2017 7:14:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Hope you are well. Just checking in. I will be heading out of town for thanksgiving tomorrow and not on computer much for a few days
422 11/9/2017 9:53:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message None are necessary. Just wanted to make sure you knew it was your turn. Heaven knows I took multiple long breaks our game

You have always been quick to turn it around so I thought I would check to see if you were just busy. Take your time
421 11/9/2017 9:06:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message My apologies - I've been very busy, but I'll try and make a move shortly.

419 11/4/2017 2:17:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #76: 2 / Great Sioux Uprising
Remove one Union commanding general at no SW penalty. Penalties for promoting a general with a lower political value still apply. OR remove ANY Union non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
Playing for OPs. Better get my Army of the West across the river while it's not under Union naval control.

A of West and all its forces will travel 3 MPs in MO, to Ironton, Greenville and New Madrid. Then 4th-6th to Humboldt, McKenzie and finally Dover (all TN). he picks up Forrest/his cav SP along the way.
418 11/4/2017 2:07:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message a nice break for CSA. 1-1 and the assault fails. Halleck returns with 2 SP to his coastal fort.

Message from Union:
Good callout!

Event: -1 SP from Sabine City and New Orleans
410 11/2/2017 12:47:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message You can go first, remember that all generals without cavalry once they form an army suffer a -2 penalty to the commanding general leader rating whenever they battle another army (cav intel penalty). you may want to spend an ops card soon to relocate a cav brigade to Grant so he can do his thing. also remember, you can't relocate cav generals/brigade pieces with re-org move of generals. has to be a campaign move or ops card to activate that brigade or of course move with a corp.
