126 4/11/2018 4:16:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I'm sending this message in order to keep the game active and to have a current ACTS message in my inbox.
125 3/29/2018 11:09:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I enjoyed the play today as well. See you tomorrow for at least a few go-rounds!
124 3/29/2018 11:08:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message I have not been told of any plans to house-hunt tomorrow.
I asume that we will do so on Saturday.
Thanks for the fun. We'll have more fun, tomorrow.
123 3/29/2018 11:03:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message CSA chooses to not play a campaign card to start T3.

I should be able to play tomorrow. Are you going house hunting or not til Saturday/Sunday?

1 SP Indianapolis IN -> Cincinnati OH (2)
1 SP Coshocton OH -> Pittsburg PA (2)

1 SP Rolla MO -> Bloomington IN (2)
Over to you.
114 3/29/2018 10:34:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I mean DC has 2SP - I probably just put the wrong counter down.
113 3/29/2018 10:33:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Check, then I may have an incorrect SP total elsewhere - we'll cross that bridge when the horse is let out of the barn. So as I understand it, DC has 0 SP in it currently.
112 3/29/2018 10:28:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message message 25 - DC started turn with 6 SPs
Message 36 - AotP took all 6 SPs from DC

111 3/29/2018 10:22:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message No reinforcements this turn. Over to you for strat moves.

109 3/29/2018 10:19:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I think you also have 3 SP in DC so attrition there?
108 3/29/2018 10:18:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Attrition in AotP - (5)
107 3/29/2018 10:18:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Well done.
Place USA PC markers -
Winchester VA
Paducah KY
Rolla & Ironton MO
Flip PC markers in Coshocton & Zanesville OH

Strat move coming up
106 3/29/2018 10:12:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Place CSA PC markers in all spaces in WV as the CSA takes control.

CSA SW +5 and +2 FOW = 98(+)

No CSA attrition
105 3/29/2018 10:09:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message And by threatening to cut those rail lines I forced you to use your last 3 card to clear the rebel sympathizers in Ohio rather than attack me somewhere.
104 3/29/2018 10:08:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message BTW, I thought it might be more effective to play my last two cards the other way round, taking WV spaces THEN cutting the rail lines between east and west. But the play of your hand convinced me that you had another 3 card and Halleck would counter attack into WV so I wouldn't gain control of it. Hey, the Union is supposed to have command and control problems early in the war, whine whine whine...
103 3/29/2018 10:05:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message PGTB loses 1SP (3) and continues move, drop 1SP in Parkersburg (2)->Charleston d/o 1 (1)-->Grafton (2) and stop.

End of strategy rounds phase, enter political control phase.

Message from Union:
Parkersburg garrison valiantly defend.
101 3/29/2018 9:57:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message PGTB drops 1SP in Grafton (4)->Parkersburg

A small battle. USA SP auto elim. If you roll a 1 PGTB loses no SP. Even if you "win" the battle he can keep moving as per 7.33C.
100 3/29/2018 9:53:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I agree on Grafton battle.
99 3/29/2018 9:52:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Medium battle in Grafton, I think the results are automatic with PGTB losing 1 (5) and USA SP elim.
98 3/29/2018 9:45:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Not even close.

Message from Union:
Halleck moves to intercept in Grafton.
Nice move, btw…unfortunately.
96 3/29/2018 9:38:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #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.

Message from Confederate:
EC. I think this is allowable using the second effect on the card. I will strat move 3SP to Manassas then activate Beauregard who will also take some SP from the ANV and make his move.

Strat move to Manassas: SP in Wilmington, SP in Savannah, 1 SP from Columbus, GA

PGTB (3) grabs 3SP from ANV (2) and now has (6)--->Grafton, WV and you may attempt to intercept.
95 3/29/2018 9:29:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #22: 3 / Josiah Gorgas, Chief of Ordnance
Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any friendly controlled space with a LOC,free of Union SPs and forts. No more than one SP per Confederate controlled state. No SPs may be placed in Pro-Union spaces.

Message from Union:
Another 3-card. Some turn, this will swing the other way.
OC - Division move
2 SP/Cincinnati move to regain the hearts and minds of Ohioans --> Coshoction d/o 1, -> Zanesville and stops.
Over to you.
94 3/29/2018 9:24:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Of course. Rebs propagandize the shifty people of Zanesville and Coshocton.
93 3/29/2018 9:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I missed one of your rail connections, can I place those two PC markers in Cohsocton and Zanesville instead?
92 3/29/2018 9:20:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #2: 2 / Copperheads
Reduce Union SW by two points, or place two PC markers in Ohio (must be placed in spaces free of Union SPs).

Message from Confederate:
EC. Place CSA PC marker in Sidney and Washington, OH.

Over to you.
91 3/29/2018 9:14:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message 3, Activate Fremont/St. Louis
Now, a complicated move, in case of mud.
Fremont w/1 -> Salem/Vandalia p/u 1 (2). If no mud, then double back -> St. Louis p/u Buell w/1 (3), -> Jonesborough p/u 1 (4), -> Cairo d/o Buell, -> Ironton d/o 1, -> Rolla d/o 1, -> St. Louis (2) and stops.
Over to you.
90 3/29/2018 9:05:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Just a bit outside...go ahead with your third activation, sigh...

Message from Confederate:
AS Johnston (2) attempts to stop Union forces from coming ashore in Paducah. Need a 1 to intercept.
88 3/29/2018 9:03:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message And I take back what I said about not having a successful battle. Thank the heavens for auto-victories.
87 3/29/2018 8:58:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message 2. I've never done riverine movement before, so I hope this is legit.
1 SP from Wheeling WV (leaving 1) -- riverine move --> Paducah KY.
If this is correct, then you have 2 choices for intercepting.
86 3/29/2018 8:52:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Dang it…I read the first paragraph of 7.33 but stopped there, so I missed the part that applied.
Halleck d/o 1 in Grafton, retreats w/2 to Uniontown.
85 3/29/2018 8:47:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Defender uses left-hand column, attacker uses right (think --sword/attack in right hand, shield/defend in left…in that helps).
You won the tie so I lose and must retreat. I needed a 4+.
Good thing I have great cards because my battles haven't been successful, yet.
84 3/29/2018 8:47:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Yes, 7.33C. You even get to keep moving.
83 3/29/2018 8:45:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message start=stay
82 3/29/2018 8:44:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Haven't looked at rule yet but don't you get to start in the space with CSA elim?

Message from Confederate:
CRT still confuses me!
80 3/29/2018 8:40:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Hallek wipes out the defenders but still loses, retreats to Uniontown w/either 3 or 4.

Message from Union:
Halleck attacks +4.
78 3/29/2018 8:37:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message It's a small battle - don't you have to roll 2+ to cause damage?
77 3/29/2018 8:33:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message CSA auto inflicts 1 on Halleck. O guess if you roll a 1 you lose the battle and stop.
76 3/29/2018 8:18:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Halleck w/1 -> Pittsburg p/u 1, -> Uniontown p/u 2 (4) -> Grafton, attacks the impudent southern interloper with +4.
75 3/29/2018 8:04:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Gee, another campaign card...for you, not me, whine....no mud march.
74 3/29/2018 7:34:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #84: 3 / Major Campaign
Conduct up to three moves or conduct one special army-size naval move. No SP, general, or army marker may be moved twice with the same campaign card. You must move a different force each move.

Message from Union:
We can play a bit more today or adjourn until tomorrow.
Here's the start of my latest Campaign.
1. Halleck w/1 detaches from AotP (6) -> Gettysburg and halts for possible muc.
73 3/29/2018 2:20:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Sounds good. See you later online.
72 3/29/2018 2:16:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Yes, let us halt. We'll continue this fascinating struggle later.
71 3/29/2018 2:02:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Since I'm going to bridge with the lolz, should we pause at this point and lick our wounds, think on our strategies, etc?
70 3/29/2018 1:54:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message That Ship Island/Key West card would be a powerful card for the Union to get on T1!!!
69 3/29/2018 1:52:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #13: 2 / Missouri Guerrilla Raids
Confederate removes two Union PC markers from any two Missouri spaces that do not contain a Union SP or fort.

Message from Confederate:
OC. Leader reorganization move.

Polk to ANV
Price to Columbus, KY
A Johnston to Dover, TN
Bragg to Nashville

Over to you.

68 3/29/2018 1:48:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I mean, increase BL to 1.
67 3/29/2018 1:47:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #61: 3 / Ship Island/Key West
Union Blockade Level is increased by one. In addition, if Fort Philip/Jackson does not contain a CSA SP place a friendly PC marker in that space.

Message from Union:
EC
Increase AA to 1.
Over to you.
66 3/29/2018 1:47:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Yes, I'm a bit better than yesterday so my feeling of obligation is going to overtake me.
65 3/29/2018 1:45:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Are you going to play with the LOLZ, today?
64 3/29/2018 1:40:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #21: 3 / Confederate Overseas Agent
Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any open Blockade Runner Port, no more than one SP per port, but more than one SP per Blockade Zone is permitted. If insufficient ports are available, the excess SPs are lost.

Message from Confederate:
EC.

Place CSA SP's in:

Columbus, GA (2)
Savannah, GA
Wilmington, NC

Over to you.
63 3/29/2018 1:30:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #92: 2 / Baltimore Revolts

Message from Union:
Burnside attacks +4.
59 3/29/2018 1:11:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I sense Emancipation Proclamation coming on after you win this medium battle (you need a 2 or higher).
58 3/29/2018 1:08:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message There is a medium battle in Winchester. Defender's result is an automatic 1 so I won't bother to roll.
57 3/29/2018 12:59:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I don't know why that message posted twice. I swear I didn't hit the send button twice.
56 3/29/2018 12:57:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message No two space intercept.
55 3/29/2018 12:57:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message No two space intercept.
54 3/29/2018 12:54:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Burnside continues w/4 --> Baltimore p/u 1 (5), -> DC d/o 2 (3), --> Harper's Ferry p/u 2 (5), -> Winchester and anxiously scours the horizon for any 2-space intercepting force.
53 3/29/2018 12:52:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message That's why I attempted to rbb. I got lucky in the battle itself.
52 3/29/2018 12:50:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Dang it. I was hoping, of course, to knock Manassas sown to 4 so you couldn't form an army.
51 3/29/2018 12:49:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Haha, still no mud and I think those magnificent roads in the north would withstand a little rain!
50 3/29/2018 12:48:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message 2. Activate Burnside/Harrisburg w/2 -> Philadelphia (4)…mud?
49 3/29/2018 12:47:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message That is correct, 5 SP total including the Stuart cav bde.
48 3/29/2018 12:46:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message You are correct, sir.
To be sure -- Manassas now holds 4 infantry and Stuart, for 5 total SPs?
47 3/29/2018 12:45:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message AotP retreats to Frederick.
46 3/29/2018 12:43:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Since I still have trouble reading the CRT, I hesitate to outline this but I think we both lose 1 SP and CNV wins the battle with the tie.

I hope this goes well…and I don't have to utter "What the Halleck?"

Message from Confederate:
JJ and the Corps of Northern Virginia attempts to retreat before battle to The Wilderness.
41 3/29/2018 12:26:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message AotP/Frederick p/u 2 (8), -> Manassas…Fight or no fight?
40 3/29/2018 12:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I concur that the rule says the entire force retreats so I guess we can say all leaders go as well.
39 3/29/2018 12:20:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I say that the entire force would retreat. What southern unit would leave a general behind?
38 3/29/2018 11:45:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message We might run into a rules question here if JJ is able to retreat before battle. He is a corps commander with Stuart cav so able to retreat on 4 or less but a corps can only have one sub-general. Does PGTB go with JJ and Jeb or does he get left behind standing alone by himself in a field full of flowers?
37 3/29/2018 11:42:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message No mud march, continue moving, sigh...
36 3/29/2018 11:32:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #99: 3 / Minor Campaign
Conduct up to two moves or conduct one special army-size naval move. No SP, general, or army marker may be moved twice with the same campaign card. You must move a different force each move.

Message from Union:
EC
1. Activate AotP
AotP w/6 -> Frederick…halts because it looks like it might rain and rain means mud.
35 3/28/2018 8:08:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Haha, I hope so. It's agonizing for the messages to take so long. See you on down the line.
34 3/28/2018 8:04:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message For a guy who's not 100%, you sure give me problems.
I look forward to our second turn, tomorrow or whenever. Hopefully, ACTS will be feeling better, as well.
33 3/28/2018 8:00:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message CSA chooses to not play a campaign card to go first in T2.

I felt a bit better today but still not completely well, time to call it for the day and I hope I get some good rest.

I may be able to make a move or two in the morning but I have bridge with the lolz at noon. I may cancel going if I still feel off but since they require me to play I have a feeling of obligation beyond usual.
