248 11/21/2017 5:20:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Price back to Rolla ( I think).

Van Dorn to ANV Richmond.

Jackson alone now on M.Ridge.
247 11/21/2017 3:45:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Price can't move to Little Rock, unaccompanied through USA controlled spaces

Also if you want to create an army in MR then you need to move van DOrn out as it is always the highest ranking commander that gets the gig as army commander
246 11/21/2017 7:08:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #16: 2 / Grierson's Raid
Union may place two Union PC markers in any spaces within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single Union cavalry brigade. The four space range cannot be traced through Northeast Alabama and may not contain a Confederate SP or Fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

243 11/21/2017 6:21:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #6: 1 / Ambush

241 11/21/2017 6:18:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message Now I have Columbus KY still at 1SP - so you might want to add another one

I'd also suggest that 2SP is enough in Sabine city and to avoid attrition you might to SM one from there to an army (it is not connected to rail so you can only SM to an army)

226 11/13/2017 5:00:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message ok. Johnson with AOT.
M.Ridge 2SPs
225 11/13/2017 4:48:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message That's basically OK - the only issue is ASJ is 2nd in command and they can never leave an army. This should be an issue as you get 2 good commanders next turn.

Now no need to roll as the result is 3*/1 so AoT now 4
224 11/13/2017 6:13:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Meant Forrest, not Stuart
223 11/13/2017 6:12:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #81: 3 / Emancipation Proclamation - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player must play this card as an EC on the Strategy Round immediately following a Union large or medium battle victory. Confederate loses 10 SW and 3 SPs (his choice). Union loses 5 SW. Flip GT marker to its Emancipation Proclamation side. Card must be the last one played by a player at which time it can be played as an OC card. If the play of this card as an OC results in a battle victory, there is no Emancipation Proclamation Remove from deck if event is played. If this card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at the end of the Strategy Phase.

Message from Confederate:
C7.

M.Ridge. AOT. Leave Johnson with 2 SPs. Move AOT n3 through Atlanta pu1 n4 and Macon pu1 n5 and Beauregard.

Move to Columbus.

Medium battle.

CS +3 Lee, + 3 Stuart, +1 Beauregard, +2 OOS = +9
US 0

Is that correct?

Please roll.
222 11/13/2017 6:03:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Set Deck Reshuffle Deck will be reshuffled before next deal
221 11/13/2017 6:03:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message Correct
220 11/13/2017 6:01:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message I have the Emancipation Proclamation card, which must be played as last card.

If the US had won that Rolla battle I would have to play as Event, but now I can play as an OPS card. Is that correct?
219 11/13/2017 5:56:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message Rosencrans + 3SP have to go back to St Louis

Price + 1SP remain in Rolla


Just note that because you don't have a LOC (at the moment) Rolla won't convert to CSA at the end of the turn
218 11/13/2017 5:53:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message So 2/3.

US now Rosencrans with 3 SPs, Price with 1 SP.
217 11/13/2017 5:51:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message No - after - that is why I don't get any modifier for 3:1

215 11/13/2017 5:51:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message ok, so the force ratio is calculated before the intercept, yes?
214 11/13/2017 5:48:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message OOS means out of supply - I have USA PC markers in both Ironton and Springfield so you can't trace supply to it

So we are both +3
213 11/13/2017 5:46:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message What does OOS mean; out of supply?

I have in Rolla

US 6 SPs Rosencrans. No force ratio at 2/1 odds, just +1 Rosencrans. Total US +1

CS 3 SPs Price. +2 intercept, +1 Price. Total CS +3

Is that correct?
212 11/13/2017 5:38:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message I will intercept with Price.
211 11/13/2017 5:34:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message At the moment it is

Medium

USA +5 (OOS, Leader, 3:1)/CSA 0

Intercept would make it

USA +3 (OOS, Leader)/ CSA+3 (intercept, leader)


210 11/13/2017 5:32:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message correct

Rosencrans continues d1, n4

You are most welcome to keep the earlier intercept roll
209 11/13/2017 5:31:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message I make it 2/1, so CS SP elim. Van Dorn returns next turn. 1 US SP loss.

206 11/13/2017 5:26:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message So, I can't intercept in Ironton with Price?
205 11/13/2017 5:15:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message You can keep the roll for interception when I go into Rolla

You can't use it to evade because Rolla has no leader and in Ironton van DOrn is 0

You could use it to evade in Springfield
204 11/13/2017 5:14:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message Mostly the same

Cairo I had as 1 but should be 5
St Louis should be 2
Coshocton is empty

201 11/12/2017 11:45:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Could that roll be used to evade, rather than intercept? If so would rather evade Van Dorn and the SP, than do battle.
200 11/12/2017 10:08:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Successful; so can Price move from Springfield with 2 SPs, pu 1 SP Rolla and intercept with 3 SPs?

Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades.

The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.
