Let me know if you see anything wrong. CSA looks to be in very good position. We all know that 1864 is an election year. The people can’t be happy with the war effort so far!

631 5/18/2019 6:55:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Message This is a friendly game. So if you want to do a “take back” and conduct the raid, then that would be ok by me. By raid, I assume that you mean to take 3 provinces in a Union State for the -5 SW? I’ll do the end of turn stuff in any case, but please feel free to redo if you want and I can do the end of turn stuff again. Your choice.
630 5/17/2019 2:07:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message well in this case dropping that 1 in Grafton leaves me with 2 with Jackson. 2 more spaces to Pitt and drop 1 leaving 1 with Jackson and 2 MP left. 5th-8th MP travel back to Lewisburg to rejoin Morgan and form 2 SP corp at move end. 1 AM here if you want to try to do EOT stuff, it would be much appreicated.

i missed my chance fora raid now.

CSA DRM: +6 Long/Forrest/Smith

US DRM: +3 McDowell and INT
613 5/2/2019 6:14:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Message Well, how about that! the "Old Snapping Turtle" comes through!

US forces will fight. I assume that I need to use McDowell's defensive rating since he has the higher Political Rating, so that would make the US +3 for the battle. Back to you can to choose you generals and resolve the battle...

not a lot of good options with the ever present Grant around in the East and so many soldiers to deal with if I try to punch up the gut in Illinois. at best i win and have to halt and that leaves my MS River fortification very vulnerable.

going to do my move shortly.
582 3/19/2019 9:47:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message As far as GCACW is concerned, I have Roads to Gettysburg II. That covers the Antietam, Gettysburg campaigns and Jubal Early's raid into DC in 1864. That package contains 3 campaigns and about 25 scenarios, so there is a lot of game to be played!

I understand fully real time constraints. These jobs definitely get in the way of these hobbies! None the less, if at any point in the future, you want to try a game out, I'd be willing.

576 3/19/2019 5:44:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message Just saw a mistake with my reinforcements. I added 8 SP to the AoP, not the AoT in DC.

8 SP to AoT in DC (n13)

AoP should be at n7

I will create a new vassal log and correct.

Now, over to you for CSA reinforcements...
575 3/19/2019 5:36:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message It looks like you missed a couple of things out west during the PC and attrition phases. You wrote them out but did not complete on the board itself. I corrected and detailed them in the vassal log.

Fall 1863 Reinforcements:

8 SP to DC (n15)

2 SP to Cincinnati
2 SP to Vincennes
2 SP to Bloomington

4 SP to Cairo (n9)

Over to you for CSA Reinforcements...
574 3/19/2019 5:26:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message As far as GCACW is concerned, I think the basic game is actually easier to grasp than FtP. Nothing like the FtP river or supply rules to deal with. The GCACW campaign rules to add some complexity but a lot of those rules are concerned with events in other theaters or determining when reinforcements might arrive. So while they may seem lengthy, you don't need to memorize them.

I sent you an email on 2/12/2019 listing a few good resources for learning GCACW. Let me know if you need me to resend it. The game is really fun (I still love FtP as well). It does a good job of rewarding any flanking maneuvers so just like a real ACW General, you are always looking to set up a good flank attacks. The other thing it does really well is models the failures of your subordinates to carry out your orders exactly as you want them too. Sometimes you spend a bunch of time setting up an attack and order a Grand Multi-Corps Assault only to find that 1/3 of those units actually make the attack and therefore get beat on as a result! It can be frustrating but it is also realistic of the times!

Fredericksburgs can and do happen! I'd be happy to play a game and show you the ropes if you want.
573 3/19/2019 2:28:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message i got my first GCACW game recently. how hard would you say rules are to grasp, complexity wise not length, compared to FTP?

562 3/18/2019 6:01:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message I see you corrected the SPs in Marion, SC. However, I think there was already 1 SP in Marion SC before Jackson arrived there. Take a look at one of the earlier log files. If so, then you should have 2 SP in Marion and 1 SP in Wilmington.

Play as interrupt to cancel the activation of any Union general with a strategy rating of 2 or 3.

Message from Confederate:
wish i could move my army of Tenn, but Longstreet is just a little too slow for this 1 op. VD gets on his horse, 1 SP, 2 MPs to Dover, pu 4, n5 (n2 left in dover). 3rd-Paducah and drop 1, n4 (n2 in Paducah), 4th thru 7th-attack Greenville MO via New Madrid.

550 3/15/2019 5:17:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Confederate:
activate Jackson and his 2 SP, 1st-Richmond and pu 1, n3 (n4 in AONV). 2nd-4th- Weldon, pu1, n4. 5th-7th - Goldsboro-Strickland Depot-attack Hooker in Wilmington.
