347 6/19/2018 6:51:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Sorry for that last post...

was explaining the placement of Gens for another player.
346 6/19/2018 4:54:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message The Gens are randomly placed into the spaces that have an LOC and at least 1SP.

So, you would say something like...
place highest 2 Gens into "such & such" place
Then roll bones to see which 2 are placed...below is an example from another game.

Still digesting the ACW rules...like drinking from a fire hose for me! LOTS to contemplate...re-thinking movement distances...may have to look at doubling my distances. While my time for each move is 15 min and distances are 25yds = inch...still considering. Love the Brigade Orders idea, but may not be appropriate for the level of my game...being as much as the game player IS the brigade officer. More to come and will want to talk to you again about all the changes to bounce some things off of ya...

Have a super Father's Day....and catch ya late Sunday after me going to visit my father-in-law in Illinois.

Please note, AoTenn in Humboldt, NOT in McKenzie.

306 4/25/2018 7:43:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Bill, I believe that the naval influence from Shreveport is valid...so, let's re-do...this is what I see...you validate what I am about to say...

Your card play #80 =>
place 3SPs in Baton rouge

My card play #37 =>
the same (take Sabine)

Your card play #54 =>
add Ironclad at Baton Rouge

My card play #64 =>
Convert Sabine, the same

You may put back in your hand cards #75 & #77 or play the concentration card and attack Little Rock or something else?

I put card #97 back in my hand and await your play of #75 or #77.

Whatcha think?
305 4/24/2018 1:04:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Haven't heard back from Mark yet...

303 4/18/2018 3:59:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Bill, I cannot find an email addy for Mark so we can get some clarification. You have one?
302 4/18/2018 2:25:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Reviewed the 6.0 River section again...
In section 6.62, para 3 Example A => has the only reference for our situation...However, this example does not include the situation for Shreveport being in Yank supply from Texas.
Believe the "pressure idea from the North down the river" supports Union Naval control and supply to Little Rock.

You want me to send Mark a note for clarification?
301 4/18/2018 10:02:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message I am not clear about supply across the Mississippi. If you are in supply in Little Rock via the River, then I couldn't have attacked Little Rock across the River...Right? If the Rebs are in supply west the Ark. River, then yes, I want to complete the move and claim Missouri for my very own. If not, I'd like to reconsider my move...
300 4/18/2018 12:24:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Bill, on my map, I have nuttin in Missouri...does that change your move?

As I see it, you are not in supply...thus far. Little Rock is occupied, Yank PCs in Memphis & in Humboldt block supply.
If things remain the same after my turn, then Memphis & Madison will be back to Rebeldom so Supply may be gleaned from that source, even with Little Rock destroyed.

Anyways, change your move?
299 4/17/2018 8:45:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #77: 2 / Stop the War

Message from Confederate:
Price moves to Gainsville, p/u Beau and 4SPs. [n5] then on to Greensville, drop 1SP, then to Ironton, drop 1SP, and then to STL, drop 1SP and attack with 2SPs. The question of whether I am in supply is not clear--to me anyway.
298 4/17/2018 8:24:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Well, I missed that line of supply. Good one.
297 4/17/2018 6:03:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Well, true, but I have supply along the Red River, Missip, Arkansas Rivers...

Had other plans, but you have successfully been making me adjust to your moves...that's why I had to convert Sabine to insure I had supply from Shreveport.
296 4/17/2018 5:29:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Is there supply to Little Rock? Reading 8.1 suggests that the space [Camden] has to be 'friendly' rather than simply occupied. Is that Right? If so, then there is +2OOS applied to Price's attack because Little Rock can't be supplied by the river. [IF again, I am reading the rules correctly]

Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any friendly controlled space with a LOC, free of Union SPs or forts. No more than one SP per confederate controlled state. No SPs may be placed in Pro-Union spaces.

LOL, Bill, you are really good at this game! That last move was totally out of my radar...nicely done...I only hope you don't have what I think you might have in your hand!

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.

If played by Union, reduce Confederate SW by 2; if played by Confederate, Confederate immediately receives two SPs in any Blockade Runner port, no more than one SP per port, but more than 1SP per Blockade zone is permitted. If insufficient ports are available, the excess SPs are lost. Remove from deck if event is played.

275 4/11/2018 1:48:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Love the bone rolls! :-)

This was a medium battle (my 3SPs w/o a Gen, but with the mighty riverine navy vs your 3SPs in the fort), so you loose 2SPs...so only 1SP retiring to Spfld, LA.

Yanks still loose only 1SP, so n2 in NO with the fort destroyed.

267 4/5/2018 10:34:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message yep, if it is two mps to use non-rr lines.
266 4/5/2018 12:44:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Due to the new logistics rules, it will take 3MPs to convert Elizabeth...so will use the last 2MPs to enter Little Rock and enter that space with no conversion to Yankeedom.

If I understand things correctly, since no Rail road, it takes 2MPs to enter Little Rock. Is that what you believe as well?

Yes... I noticed that too late too. I should have suffered some serious attrition and be unable to place the reinforcement there... *sigh*

Make an attempt to retreat... Gainsville

Confederate immediately places two SPs in any friendly controlled space in Tennessee with an LOC (both SPs are placed in the same space). The SPs cannot be placed in a Pro Union space or one occupied by Union SPs or fort.

Message from Union:
AoMoLand (n12) moves from Memphis to Madison, converts and then attacks Elizabeth...your options...

I notice that you are OOS with the Arkansas River unable to cross...and retreat to LR is also not available...just sayin...
