111 8/19/2018 10:42:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #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 Union:
AotP moves to Fort Monroe, picks up 3 SPs. AotP moves to Williamsburg and leaves 1 SP, moves to Hanover and leaves 1 SP, moves to Wilderness and picks up 1 SP, and then attacks Manassas.

It would be a Small Battle (4 SP vs 1 SP) with +5drm Union (+3 force ratio, +2 leaders) vs +1 Confederates (leader). Do you retreat or play cards?

Confederate removes two Union PC markers from any two Missouri spaces that do not contain a Union SP or fort.

Pope moves into Richmond bringing one unit and also General Halleck with him.

The ungarrisoned fort falls. The Confederates' Capital falls.

The Confederates lose 15 SW points for losing their Capital and lose another 2 SW for changing fortunes of war (from 100+ down to 83-). The Confederates also lose 1 SW point for losing the fort (from 83- down to 82-).

The Union gains 1 SW point for eliminating the fort and gain another 2 SW for changing fortunes of war (from 100- up to 103+).

78 8/14/2018 12:40:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #40: 3 / Emergency Call for Volunteers
Union receives five SPs, no more than two SPs in any space. Placement spaces must be friendly controlled, have a LOC and be free of Confederate SPs or forts.

73 8/14/2018 9:45:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message 3*# (10=5+5) Union
3 (8=6+2) Confederates

Despite losing all of their men, the Confederates win due to the asterisk and because a fort was present, while the Union loses three units.

There is no General Casualty roll because of the Union's high force ratio and the Confederates' not having a general present.

Confederates turn.

====================
As an aside, the AotP doesn't lose any generals yet as they have 3 SPs combined with 6 generals:

5.29 NUMBER OF GENERALS IN AN ARMY: At the beginning and end of each strategy round, the number of generals in an Army may not be greater than three more than the number of SPs in the space.

70 8/13/2018 10:54:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Interesting question. I'll have to do some research on that.
69 8/13/2018 9:09:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Is Fort Monroe a port ?
68 8/13/2018 9:07:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Yes because of the Union port
67 8/13/2018 9:06:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Are you in supply ?
66 8/13/2018 8:59:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message The AotP moves to Williamsburg, flags it, and then the entire AotP attacks Richmond. Do the Confederates play any cards or do anything?
65 8/13/2018 8:57:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message 2* (7=1+6) Union
2 (7=5+2) Confederates

The Union wins. The Confederate force is eliminated, Bragg goes to the Turn Track, the Union loses 2 SPs, and the Union can continue moving.

Message from Union:
3*# (10=4+7) Union
2 (7=5+2) Confederates

The Union wins. The Confederate force is eliminated and the Union can continue moving.

The defender must make a General Casualty die roll and loses a general on a "1". Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Stuart goes to Turn Track and returns in three turns regardless of whether he is killed or not due to the fact that he is a Cavalry General.

In any event, this is the General Casualty die roll.

Bragg wonít be retreating either.....

58 8/13/2018 12:55:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Actually Beauregard cannot attempt to intercept again. "A player may only make one interception attempt per enemy move. Once a player has attempted an interception he may not make any further interception attempts during that enemy move."

However you may attempt a discretionary retreat from Manassas if you want (you would need a "4" or less). "A Cavalry Brigade stacked with infantry SPs and no General can attempt a discretionary retreat 7.23 and if successful retreats the entire force." "A retreat before battle attempt is allowed after a failed interception."
57 8/13/2018 12:30:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message No interception
Roll for the battle
