708 2/18/2019 11:31:00 PM Fall 1864 Union Message Geez, Bill, this was another VERY tough game! You are so much fun to play with...challenging and strain my talents to come up with strategies to get anything done!

Shall we make our "sweet" 25th?? I am sure IN for another!! You choose the side?

Cann't thank you enough for playing with me...as well as your friendship! Oh, btw, realized that I don't have the rules for "orders" defined since some folks have not played with JRIII, so getting them written and then forward the "package" to ya so you should be able to follow along with my system, since you have Regt F & F already.

Wife much better, but still have a long road ahead. Progress, not perfection, so one day at a time. :-)

Union may make a naval more with up to three SPs plus one general. Move may pass one ungarrisoned fort without “running the guns” to conduct an amphibious assault (may not pass an ironclad). Ignore first torpedo encountered during naval move. If the port space is captured it immediately receives a Union PC marker. Add +2 to Running the Guns die roll.

650 1/27/2019 11:42:00 AM Fall 1864 Confederate Message Yep, you are right. I failed to move my SW marker after all the Blockade damage. Unconsciously, couldn't face the pain. I had AoC at n11, so yes, only one lost.
649 1/27/2019 11:17:00 AM Fall 1864 Union Message Hate to add to the loss of AoWest...

"1" was rolled for cas on Yanks => total 6, so only 1SP lost by ole Sherman - n11 in Franklin.

He finishes his move by converting Franklin.

Reb SW was at 27-, so with -5 for AoWest loss => 22-.

You agree?
