But if I read this right because it is a fort with a general I lose and must retreat right? If so they retreat by water but they don't have to go back to Cincinnati, but rather go to Cairo where they join the forces there N4.

91 9/30/2018 6:58:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I know, my bad. Sorry it's been a crazy month. Thursday night I got a call at around 9.00pm to say the parent of one of my clients was about to be delisted and it was all my fault! Needless to say it was not but a circular shooting party had been formed. I had to head in with a colleague on Friday and spend all day getting someone else's fat out of the fire. Needless to say I succeeded but it sort of sums up how this past month has been. Sorry!
90 9/29/2018 3:13:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message You need to place your two Generals and draw your cards!

86 9/13/2018 5:55:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message Glad you are feeling better. I control Fort St Phillip so I can move by sea from AoP in Washington to New Madrid by sea as you have troops in Memphis and New Orleans but no forts. :)
85 9/13/2018 3:35:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Sorry this has taken so long, it's been a heck of a month capped off by falling ill since Saturday. feeling much better now.
84 9/13/2018 3:34:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I meant the 2 in cairo could then go down the river to New Madrid.

Anyway, mine:

2 from Winchester VA to ANV n4
83 9/13/2018 3:31:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message OK, it's nitpicking but thaey can't go from AoP to New Madrid as there's no single SM method (rail, river, sea) that will get them there. They can go to Cairo and then to New Madrid.

73 8/23/2018 8:58:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Hmm, you may be right, mine has gone wrong, perhaps wait until you get back home to confirm? I'd like to leave 2sp in Winchester if possible, if not I'll have to find somewhere else to lose an sp.

Anyway ifd you want toroll the combat I think it is now:

medium battle
USA: 5v4 Ldr+1
CSA: Ldr+5

Feel free to roll.

Sorry for being disorganised.
72 8/23/2018 7:42:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message My map is in Nebraska (I am in New York City at the moment) but yes the ANV started at 5 I think from the turn log. My recollection was Richmond was 2 and Winchester was 1 but the log indicates Winchester was 3 I think. So original reduction or take one from Wilmington? and you are+5 so let me know the odds, and are you retreating?
71 8/23/2018 3:57:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Hmm ,I can see I completely lost track. In that case was the ANV not on 5?

Clearly my map has got completely messed up!
70 8/22/2018 9:45:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I was wondering and then thought maybe you wanted me to have to march down to Richmond for some reason.
So change it..4v3
but you formed the ANV right..so you are +5
69 8/22/2018 3:58:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Well I managed to forget what I was doing I meant to leave the 3sp in Manassas, can I change to removing 1 from Wilmington NC?

Anyway I reckon I am only +2 and you are only +1 unless I am missing something?
68 8/22/2018 2:21:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message So the AOP loads up and heads for Richmond..leaving 1SP in Washington..it crosses the Potomac and attack
4v2
USA +2
USA +5

Will you retreat or may I roll?
67 8/22/2018 2:15:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Ok lose 1sp from each of

Winchester VA n2
Manassas VA n2
Richmond VA n1

Clearly the Virginians were a bit upset.

65 8/15/2018 9:08:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message So you lose 3SP before I moved the AoP.
64 8/15/2018 9:08:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #81: 3 / Emancipation Proclamation - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player must play this card as an EC on the Strategy Round immediately following a Union large or medium battle victory. Confederate loses 10 SW and 3 SPs (his choice). Union loses 5 SW. Flip GT marker to its Emancipation Proclamation side. Card must be the last one played by a player at which time it can be played as an OC card. If the play of this card as an OC results in a battle victory, there is no Emancipation Proclamation Remove from deck if event is played. If this card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at the end of the Strategy Phase.

Message from Union:
63 8/15/2018 9:07:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Correct and correct.
62 8/15/2018 9:06:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message If so I need to play if rather than discard it, otherwise it will turn up again in the deck
61 8/15/2018 8:47:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message So I get Emanicaption and I attack?
60 8/15/2018 3:51:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Please note that "discarding" emancipation still triggers its event! You get two cards for the price of one! Should have played FtR earlier :-)
59 8/15/2018 3:48:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Confederate:
Well I think you should use that last card to attack Manassas cos we certainly don't want Emancipation!
58 8/14/2018 12:30:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Drop 1SP in Fayetteville. Move to Clarksville, drop 2SP..move with 1SP back to Fayettesville, to Springfield, to Rolla, pick up Burnside and 1SP, 1 SP remains, Pope, Burnside and N2 move to Ironton, to Greenville to Gainesville.

52 8/14/2018 11:27:00 AM Summer 1861 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.

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:
