74 11/20/2017 2:49:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #104: 1 / Big Bethel
Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if they were 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.

73 11/19/2017 7:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Thanks, I read the columns backwards.

No change to my move.
72 11/19/2017 1:56:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Hold your horses, Ken ! Results are a little bit different here.

It's 2*/2, becoming 2/2 due to Capital/Ressource space.

So :
- it's a medium CSA victory, and AoP retreats to Hanover even if Stuart cav is destroyed ;
- AoP has 3Sp ;
- Fort stands alone at Richmond ;
- Sw stay 96- and 95- for the time being ;
- no leader casualties, so Stuart will reappear Turn 5. If he was a US cav general, he would reappear Turn 3.

Knowing all this, I let you possibly reconsider your next move as needed.
71 11/19/2017 11:52:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #117: 3 / Clandestine Blockade Runner Port
If the state of Florida and the St. Marks, Florida space is Confederate controlled, St. Marks is treated as a blockade runner port for the remainder of the game. Place (no LOC required) 2SPs and a fort (optional if available) in the St. Marks space. Remove from deck if event is played.

68 11/18/2017 5:17:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
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.

60 11/17/2017 10:26:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #75: 2 / Western Concentration Block
Confederate player can either remove or demote an army commander in any state except Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Florida for no political cost. OR Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5 Remove from deck if event is played.

50 11/17/2017 6:51:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message 1)USA modifier was only +6 (McDowell and Buell are the only Offensive capable generals in AoP), but it doesn't change the results ;
2)You only had 3Sps in Manassas with 2 generals, so the CSA force here is destroyed ;

2) agree Cincy with 6 SP

46 11/16/2017 7:35:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #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 Union:
AoP(15)

1 Manassas(15)

You may resolve. Attacking with max DRM (+2 generals + ratio).
45 11/16/2017 7:23:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I guess you wanted to put your infantry generals either in Corinth or Wilmington, so if Stuart is in Corinth, then Bragg is in Wilmington.

So Stuart is in Strasburg, right ?
44 11/16/2017 7:21:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message St-Marks is not a blockade port yet (an event is needed to activate it) so I put your extra sp in Columbus,Ga instead (so Columbus,Ga(1)).

40 11/16/2017 7:01:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message 1)In my strat moves, 2SP from Vernon went to Cincinnatti as well, so Cincinnatti is 6SP.
2)Stuart, as a cavalry general, is placed separately from the others, but never mind.
3)you have to draw your cards after all these moves, otherwise it's too easy, but never mind.
