23 8/20/2018 12:15:00 AM Turn 1 CSA Message I was committing 2 builds for the raider, thinking I was at negative points and couldn't do the 1 build and 1 VP. I built one more gunboat and placed it in file 008 and also moved the raider to Spain. Thanks for keeping me straight.
22 8/19/2018 9:55:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message hi there - a few things. First off - love this game! Second, you start at 10 VP so you should be at 3 with Kentucky, Raider and wear and tear. You have spent 4 build points (2 gun boats, a BR + a raider) so you have 1 left. Lastly, the raider must be in Spain or UK / France (rule 14.24). Make sense?

21 8/19/2018 8:10:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message loss of 3 VP, but I think -5 is the lowest I can go? I didn't adjust the vp marker on the log I just uploaded, sorry.

16 8/19/2018 3:07:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Looks good - the only change I see is the Pensacola BR should be in Spain without cargo. It took to get to Spain. Other than that, I think it is ready for production.
15 8/19/2018 2:24:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message You are correct, the BR should be in BoB. Yes, I lived on Terceira Island, the base is called Lajes Field, it's much reduced from when I was there in the early 90's. It's basically a stop-over ont he way across the ocean and has lots of jet fuel. The islands are small, but very scenic and the tourism if very low level, not many people get out there...
14 8/19/2018 2:07:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message Failed raid, moves done, and uploaded. Can you review and then if all is good, I'll go to supply and build phases.
13 8/19/2018 2:04:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message That is cool you lived there, never been but am planing a trip to Europe in 2019 and would love to see it / southern Spain. As for the BR, I had it in the Bay of Biscay - here is my math:

blockade station >hatteras >mid-atlantic >Azores >Bay of Biscay> Spain >(load)> Bay of Biscay = 8. Am I off base here?

Message from CSA:
Continuing the move, CSA Raider (3 MPs) moves West Gulf -> South America. 2 MP remain, rolling for a raid attempt.
11 8/19/2018 1:59:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message On the rule question, I agree, the BR that came from BoB needs to move back 1 space, will have him halt in the Azores. I lived there for 2 years when I was in the Air Force...nice place...
10 8/19/2018 1:45:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message BR in the S Atlantic is destroyed.

7 8/17/2018 3:46:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Hi Greg, so sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Very crazy week at work. I will do the bulk dice rolling in the next message. I do have a rules question first. I think the coastal area around Spain, UK, France counts as a space (see playbook p.15). Please let me know what you think.
6 8/13/2018 9:51:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message Not certain the best way to do it, there seems to be 8 Union cards the allow for a bonus when searching, and some CSA cards as well, perhaps best for me to do a batch of moves, tghrough the point where you search, and then send to you to roll the Union dice. You can then play a card if you wish, and resolve them in one batch of rolls, for example the file I uploaded, there are 6 moves (partial) up to the point where a search roll is required for five ships. You can resolve Counter clockwise (the order I moved them) and roll 5 dice in one ACTS command. For any that are high enough, you can either roll for CSA or send to me to roll. I can access ACTS and my vassal at work normally, and easy enough to make simple calls and rolls. Longer plays and thinks are for the evening (Pacific Time) generally.

Message from USA:
Speed roll for Galveston. I think you should make the Union speed roll as you are moving. Only if it is higher than a 3 should even have to roll the CSA. Make sense? I think we could be in for a TON of rolls.
4 8/12/2018 11:30:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message Sorry for the delay in starting, busy weekend getting the house and garden back into shape after being gone for 2 weeks...and had to read up on the rules.

I uploaded a move, and we need to resolve a speed roll(s). Not certain how we should ahndle this, do a batch of moves and resolve the rolls after for each, although I understand the moves are made sequentially, ship, by ship (unless in a group) and a bad result in the initial move could alter what the next move would be, making a mass move with all or most pieces at once, could have issues?
3 8/10/2018 11:55:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message Back home, still need to learn a bit more of the rules, but will kick it off tomorrow. I uploaded the file where I drew my three cards, to at least give me something to ponder.
2 8/7/2018 7:04:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Man enjoy the concert; sounds awesome! I put a new setup file online for you when you are ready.
1 8/7/2018 12:44:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message Greetings, I see the ACTS is up, I'll continue to read to rules and be ready to start on Friday after my vacation ends....but first heading up to Seattle to see Pearl Jam tomorrow night.....
