Well, that's actually the game, so no need to go through Attrition. Next turn, you'll drop to 0 with three blockade zones covered, giving an automatic (and instant) Union victory.

If I haven't missed something, do you want to try this again, something else, or have you had enough of me?

627 8/17/2018 1:09:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #82: 3 / Foreign Intervention - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player can play this card as an EC when Confederate SW is 110+. If this is the last card in a players hand or the second to last and the player holds the Emancipation Proclamation, if the condition is met, it must be played as an EC, if not it can be played as an OC. EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3. Union SW reduced by 10. Remove from deck if event is played. If card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at end of the Strategy Phase.
