86 5/27/2018 11:11:00 PM 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.

Message from Union:
-5 SP to 90. 3 Ops

I move up to Harrisburg thru Baltimore and Gettysburg, then back to DC in the same way.

Leaving 2 SP in Harrisburg, 1 in Gettysburg, 2 in Baltimore, and ending with 2 in AoP in DC (having left 1 there the whole time)

Hi! Good luck! Thanks for letting me know about your pace of play. I often only take 1-2 moves a day as well. I live in Seattle WA and typically take my moves later in the evening.

Are we each keeping our own Vassal file or do you wish to share? I like to at least share at the end of each year so that we can confirm that we agree on "reality".

Do you know if we play 2 games in this portion of the event as well?
