21 11/16/2017 10:00:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Mike,
I took another look at this, and I think I was correct the first time. When 2 Union SP's unaided by a card or any Amphibious assault modifier attack an unoccupied Coastal fort the Union always takes the fort, and they always lose 1 SP. The net Amphibious assault modifier is +2 DRM for CSA, and Union gets a +4 DRM for Force Ratio. There is no chance of a "0" result for either side. Do you agree with this?
20 11/16/2017 9:43:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message 1/1
Fort falls, occupied with 1 Union SP
19 11/16/2017 9:42:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 2


Message from Confederate:
Union 2 SP, +2 DRM

CSA unoccupied coastal fort.
18 11/16/2017 9:41:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Also, we never rolled for the attack on Fort Gadson.
You attacked with 2 SP, with a net +2 DRM, small battle.
Will roll now.
17 11/16/2017 10:45:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Hi Mike,
I think we are starting to fall behind in this one. We need to speed up or Iím not sure we will be able to finish in time. I know life can get in the way of games, but please try to play a card every couple of days (or in this case, roll some dice) so we can make some progress. If nothing else, itís a nice distraction from a very disturbing world!
16 11/13/2017 10:59:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #83: 3 / Major Campaign
Conduct up to three moves or conduct one special army-size naval move. No SP, general, or army marker may be moved twice with the same campaign card. You must move a different force each move.

Message from Confederate:
Glad your back Mike! Good luck with the auto.
This card would have been a lot more useful on Turn 2..

Activation 1
Polk in Memphis with 1 SP (n0)
1-3 Dover pick-up 1 SP (n0)
4-6 Lebanon drop 1 SP (n1)
7 Bowling Green
Activation 2
J. Johnston with 1 SP in Winchester (n0)
1-2 Manassas (n4)
Activation 3
Beauregard with 3 SP in Manassas (n1)
1-3 Richmond pick-up 1 SP
4-7 Attack Frederick with Beauregard and 4 SP

Over to you to resolve. Beauregard will continue if possible.
15 11/12/2017 4:38:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #19: 1 / Belmont
Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if led by a General. This move is a Corps move and may enter enemy controlled spaces because the SPs are moving as if they are led by a general.

Message from Union:
Been busy lately. Car died and finding parts for a 20-year old car isn't that easy. Of course!


As event. 2sp from AoP (n3) march to Grafton.
14 11/7/2017 10:14:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Mike, did you get my last move?
13 11/3/2017 2:57:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #92: 2 / Baltimore Revolts
Confederate may place a friendly PC marker in Baltimore, MD, if the space is vacant.

Message from Confederate:
PCs in Frankfort and Lexington

But the fort is a +2, so the worst I could roll would be a 3, correct?
12 11/3/2017 2:43:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #45: 3 / Food Shortage
Confederate loses SW equal to current Union blockade value.

Message from Union:
Yes, unless you roll a 1 on your Defender's combat roll.

Message from Union:

As event. 2sp from Philadelphia make a naval move to Fort Gadson.

The October fires closed to within 4 miles of my mother's house. In the Bay Area, the smoke was particularly bad for several days. It seemed more like sunset in the middle of the day. We're expecting some showers this weekend.

Union SW reduced by one.

Message from Confederate:
1 SP Little Rock Naval Move to Fort St. Phillip/Jackson

I am usually good for a move every day, but am good with a slower pace as well. I guess we are playing with everything except Railroad Logistics. Is that your understanding as well?
8 10/29/2017 5:13:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Hi Mike,
Great to meet you! I think we have something in common besides FTP...we both survived the worst fire season on the west coast as long as I can remember. August was a nightmare up here, but it sounds like you folks caught up in September. Hope you're getting some rain!
7 10/29/2017 3:18:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #109: 2 / Fortified Lines
The Confederate player may place up to two forts in any friendly controlled space with an LOC free of Union SPs and forts.

Message from Union:

Division Move: 2sp at Pittsburgh make a rail move to Philadelphia, drop off 1sp there (now 2), and then continue on to Baltimore.
