337 9/16/2017 4:46:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Happy you can get some fresh air again !

You guys make a lot of tremendous series. I watched Fargo season1 the other week and found it excellent. I'm a huge fan of an 90's serie called "The Shield". The only one in France that can be quality compared is "Engrenages" ("Spiral" in English ?), a beautiful police and legal drama (quite dark though + the French system of an investigating judge might seem odd to US viewers). You can find it in Netflix I believe.
I watched the two seasons of Twin Peaks years ago and loved it. I have to try this new one !

Looks like they got you registered at BPA OK.
Exciting news: I think they are doing another season of Twin Peaks! Hella good news. I will have to watch the original at some point.
Last turn was OK, but relied on a lot of luck with that large battle. Also, if you had a Campaign card to open the turn with D.C. was doomed and it would have been game over. Your defense has been stellar, it is getting very late for the Onion.
Err...that's Union...

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.

298 9/7/2017 11:09:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Sounds like an amazing trip Phil. I would have to add Pompeii to the "bucket list" for sure.

Especially after the last two weeks here in Oregon, which has been non-stop smoke and ash everywhere. Tried to escape to the shore for a few days, but more of the same... I think I'm starting to lose it my friend.
Hey, why did your SW drop by -5 and -8 when AoNV was combined with AoT? I get the -5, but I don't understand where the -8 came from.

Message from Confederate:
Trying to intercept at Strasburg.

Napoli and the archeologic sites were definitely worth visiting, Rob ! Napoli itself is unbelievable, with all these imbricated streets (and a lot of poverty, too) and absolute chaos everywhere. There's only one motto there : NO RULES. Everybody drives, piles the rubbish and parks as he wants, with the silent approbation of the police...and it doesn't work too bad ! Lots of museums and churches as well, and pizzas+seafood are nice. Pompeď is the real gem though, despite the hordes of tourists : the site is very wide and full of history (the replica of the famous mosaic of Alexander vs Darius in the house of the faun) and enjoyable in summer, and so moving when you contemplate the proximate volcano from the gladiators barracks and training field, close to the theatre ; then you probably share their viewpoint at noon, in a day of August 79AC just before the disaster.
Might be a interesting short stop during your European tour !

290 9/1/2017 3:16:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Phil,
Don't know if you saw it, but Mark Herman has a new Civil War game coming out called Fort Sumter (GMT Games). It actually covers the period leading up to the Civil War, and plays out in about 30 minutes. Looks like a nice way to get into the hobby. I tried to get my wife into games with Churchill, a 3 player game. The third player was usually one of my kids, and the two of them would always gang up and crush me. My sorrow led me to drink.....which I'm OK with!

272 8/27/2017 9:54:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #4: 1 / Costly Mistake
Pick an enemy army with two or more subordinate generals (includes Cavalry Generals) and randomly determine a target general. On a die roll of 1-3 the chosen general is killed and removed from play. On a die roll of 4-6 the general is wounded and removed from play, but re-enters during the reinforcement phase of the next game turn.

Message from Union:
Army of the Tennessee.
Please resolve.
271 8/27/2017 5:57:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message I'm not saying I'd be a good player if I could add, but probably a little better. I was looking at the offensive cavalry rating. Visibility is currently below minimums, so I'm blaming smoke induced cerebral ischemia....
COOL! Had about a 5% chance of success.... gotta make you work for it.

Union places (or flips in border states) two PC markers in any spaces free of Confederate SPs or forts which are not Resource spaces, Blockade Runner Ports, or Coastal forts. Void after Emancipation Proclamation. Remove from deck if event is played.

267 8/27/2017 3:41:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Phil I sent an email to register for the tournament but did not get a confirmation email. Did you? I don't think I got one last year, but smoke from forest fires may be causing cerebral anoxia...
266 8/27/2017 3:33:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Close, but no 3 Cigars!

Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any open Blockade Runner Port, no more than one SP per port, but more than one SP per Blockade Zone is permitted. If insufficient ports are available, the excess SPs are lost.

Message from Union:
