46 3/28/2018 12:50:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message I wave my white flag, which has a large donkey on it.
Such a big ass, am I.
Such stupidity. I am disgusted with myself.
You don't even need a Campaign Card, as you can build up in Manassas with Stuart (4 SP should do it) and 4 in Culpepper and I won't be able to get AotP extricated.
Please set up a new game while I go to the store and hopefully get kidnapped and taken away, far from humanity, where I can live the rest of my life in shame.
45 3/28/2018 12:47:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message If we want to continue this game we now enter the Political Control Phase.

I'm up for a re-re-start. The first turn of this game is a hoot with the potential for wild swings of fortune and I enjoy seeing different openings. Kind of like seeing different openings in chess!
44 3/28/2018 12:39:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Once the dust settles and we agree on the results of the battle we need to think about a re-re-start.

AotP is OOS and will suffer attrition twice down to 2 SP. Also it cannot be reinforced. If I get a campaign card I can overrun the AotP by going first.
43 3/28/2018 12:36:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Wait a minute, I'm still confusedly mis-reading the CRT. PGTB loses 3SP, AotP loses 2*, PGTB loses the battle and retreats to Fredericksburg. The AotP is stuck in The Wilderness and OOS for the turn interphase.
42 3/28/2018 12:34:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I mis-read the CRT, AotP only loses 2* SP but the * means PGTB wins the battle, dang it.
41 3/28/2018 12:32:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message AotP loses 3SP and retreats to Manassas. PGTB loses 2 SP (2) and ends movement in The Wilderness. See prior message.
40 3/28/2018 12:31:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Okay, now I really want to quit. By the CSA winning the battle the AotP retreats back into Manassas and my trap of pulling them OOS in the game turn interphase is gone. If you hadn't intercepted I was going to invade Pennsylvania with enough SP to get the SW swing.

Message from Confederate:
Attacker's roll in The Wilderness battle. +1 for PGTB and +2 for AotP being OOS.
38 3/28/2018 12:28:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Union:
Defending with +3.
37 3/28/2018 12:28:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I wondered if you would notice that.
36 3/28/2018 12:27:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message I hope I haven't made a game-losing goof.
I should have placed a PC marker in Manassas.
Now, the AotP will be OOS.
35 3/28/2018 12:25:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I knew I shouldn't have done that. I should have built a fort in New Orleans and moved on. Gads this makes me want to take you up on your re-re-start suggestion.

PGTB is +1 and also +2 because AotP is now OOS. AotP is +1 for McD and +2 for intercept.
34 3/28/2018 12:23:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message ROFL
I should go buy a lotto ticket.
33 3/28/2018 12:23:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Needing a 1.
32 3/28/2018 12:15:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #130: 3 / Union Siege Guns
Union plays card at beginning of a battle (or Amphibious Assault) that has a Confederate fort present and cancels Confederate fort die roll modifier in the battle. Remove from deck if event is played. Draw a strategy card.

Message from Confederate:
This is probably a stupid play but I'm in kamikaze mode again.

OC. Activate Beauregard in Fred'burg...take all 4SP leaving JJ by himself->Wilderness

You may attempt to intercept.
31 3/28/2018 12:07:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Set Deck Reshuffle Deck will be reshuffled before next deal
30 3/28/2018 12:07:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message No mud march. I really did get a feeling early on that you had EP, multiple campaigns and all 3 cards!
29 3/28/2018 12:04:00 PM Spring 1861 Union 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 Union:
4/4 3-pt cards, including 2 Campaign Cards.
Well, I certainly got my wish to see a different hand o' cards.

OC
Activate the AotP
AofP/Manassas d/o 4 SPs, -> Frederick…if no mud march, then -> Harper's Ferry and place PC marker, -> Winchester d/o 1 SP, -> Strasburg d/o 1 SP, -> Manassas (6) and stops.

Confederate receives three torpedo counters. Must be placed in a friendly controlled port, and no more than one per space. Torpedoes provide a -1 DRM against Running the Guns and a +1 DRM against amphibious assaults.

Message from Confederate:
OC. Leader reorganization...feeling doomed, doomed and doomed.

26 3/28/2018 10:32:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #15: 1 / Mosby's Raiders
Confederate can remove two Union PC Markers in Virginia within 2 spaces of Winchester, VA. The spaces may contain Union generals, SPs or forts.

Message from Confederate:
EC. Mosby's raiders get active and remove the USA PC markers in Harper's Ferry and Manassas. It is hoped that removing the flag in Manassas will slow the AotP in its move toward Richmond.

Over to you.
25 3/27/2018 10:14:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message You would have been doomed, if you hadn't re-done your move.

Of course we can adjourn.
See you in the morning. Hope you sleep well.
24 3/27/2018 10:08:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I haven't been feeling well today, part of the reason I got a two hour nap. Very unusual for me. Can I call it for the evening and make my next play tomorrow?
23 3/27/2018 10:05:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Spies report that it appears the Union Navy is preparing another amphibious assault. I feel doomed already.

19 3/27/2018 9:45:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message JJ makes it to Fredericksburg, continue your move.

11 3/27/2018 7:58:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message By all mean, re-do if you want.
I got out of the house for a while, since you were busy sleeping. Just got back. Gotta scratch the cat and take a shower.
10 3/27/2018 6:08:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message If you are of a mind to let me have a do-over I can make a much better card play and maybe keep Richmond out of your hands for T1...
9 3/27/2018 6:02:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Well I'm kicking myself again - another stupid card play! If you have a couple more 3's or a campaign you could get Richmond.

You have been warned.
