300 7/24/2017 4:43:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message (Looking back on it now, I think that chasing EP with Burnside was a fatal bit of greed...)

I'm not sure if you have strong feelings on sides for the next game, but I'd just as soon be Union again, unless you'd like to switch back.
299 7/24/2017 4:36:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message Indeed! 1-1 for the players, but 2-0 for the rebels...

I'm traveling for two weeks starting Friday; I'd be happy to start but would be forced to pause, or I would also be happy to play after I return. Whichever is preferable to you.
298 7/24/2017 4:34:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message Yeah, the lack of ability to put down another fort was the only thing that gave me any hope, but I overextended badly with Pope initially in the west, and getting swept aside by Jackson like that was decisive
297 7/24/2017 4:34:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message well, I'm certainly up for another game whenever you are interested. These have been 2 very pro-South games.
296 7/24/2017 4:33:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message also, putting forts in both Manassas and Little Rock early made things dicey with my last one in Louisville and unable to re-establish LOC until the next turn.
295 7/24/2017 4:33:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message I had preserved some manpower, but I reacted too slowly to what was unfolding. Cutting off supply was a major boon, but too much ground had already been given, and without Grant there's just no union firepower moving forward...

Even cutting two raids, it would have been a large hill to climb.
294 7/24/2017 4:32:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message if I had, I guess Hooker could've tried running the guns
293 7/24/2017 4:32:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message honestly I probably would've been much better off had I sent someone from AoNV to attack Wheeling. I wasn't even thinking about an AA.
292 7/24/2017 4:31:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message gg...would've been interesting had you held on, but I suppose you would have had a long way to go. I think you would've been able to hit me hard and fast unlike me in our previous game.
291 7/24/2017 4:31:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message I would have needed a 5 or 6 even attacking with 12, so there we go. Well played!

287 7/24/2017 4:29:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #114: 3 / Frederick Douglas
Union immediately receives five SPs for raising freemen Negro troops. The SPs can be placed in any single Union controlled space with a LOC in NJ, DE, PA or the space that contains the Union capital that does not contain Confederate SPs or forts. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
Hm. Had I placed my SPs slightly better, I think I'd have a swinging chance, but now I think I'm an MP short of denying two raids, so not worth moving with AoC....

The Hail Mary play becomes pope, who activates w6 and moves towards Columbus OH (m1-2)

280 7/24/2017 4:17:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #82: 3 / Foreign Intervention - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player can play this card as an EC when Confederate SW is 110+. If this is the last card in a players hand or the second to last and the player holds the Emancipation Proclamation, if the condition is met, it must be played as an EC, if not it can be played as an OC. EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3. Union SW reduced by 10. Remove from deck if event is played. If card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at end of the Strategy Phase.

275 7/24/2017 4:10:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message right, in that case leave Jackson with AoW to keep it at 4
274 7/24/2017 4:09:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #117: 3 / Clandestine Blockade Runner Port
If the state of Florida and the St. Marks, Florida space is Confederate controlled, St. Marks is treated as a blockade runner port for the remainder of the game. Place (no LOC required) 2SPs and a fort (optional if available) in the St. Marks space. Remove from deck if event is played.

266 7/24/2017 3:51:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #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.

Union plays card at beginning of a battle (or Amphibious Assault) that has a Confederate fort present and cancels Confederate fort die roll modifier in the battle. Remove from deck if event is played. Draw a strategy card.

Message from Union:
Playing as Event, so Rosecrans is +3 in this small battle (defenders are +0). Feel free to resolve.

226 7/23/2017 8:28:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message ok I think I am wrong on that...you have Naval control in St.Louis from where the MS river goes off the north edge.
