355 12/18/2018 5:50:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message By the way, there’s a reason Grant is called “Big Boy” on the CSW board. :-D
354 12/17/2018 10:37:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message As Union General William "Wee Willie" Keeler said, "Hit 'em where they ain't."

I'm currently playing two PBeM games in the BPA Tournament, one each way, so I really have no side preference. One thing, though -- it's *really* hard to go back to not using the optional RR rules.
353 12/17/2018 8:22:00 PM Fall 1863 Confederate Message The 1 says it all. I thought you were exceedingly lucky to break through in the West. I then managed to bottle you back up. However, I didn't properly prepare for the damage Grant could do with a full army and 6-7 drms-devastating. Bled dry, I could only run. Good game, you got me again, and I really thought I had a chance in this one until Grant steamrolled me.
Can play either side now that I've been repeatedly thrashed as both sides...
352 12/16/2018 11:33:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message Actually, I miscalculated: Fayetteville is only worth 3, not 4, so you could conceivably run instead of fighting.

My apologies. If you wish to refuse to intercept, then
4) Control Raleigh
5) Fayetteville. If you evade, then
6) Control Fayetteville

File goes up to move to Raleigh.

You canNOT lose this battle, nor can you allow Fayetteville to fall. Your odds a a bit better taking the interception and it's +2, even though * results aren't negated. Thus, I'll assume Longstreet fights.

279 12/2/2018 12:26:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #119: 2 / War in the West: Valverde/Glorietta Pass
Randomly remove one strategy card from your opponent’s hand, which is discarded. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
In the want of a nail department ... how different things would be if this had knocked out EP?

As event. No file, of course.

277 12/2/2018 12:42:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message The King's War by CV Wedgwood is the one I read some odd years ago; a classic, I think Charles Vasey recommended it on a board somewhere as an intro. Not my area of expertise, though.
276 12/2/2018 12:15:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Indeed. I feel the need. Made all the worse for my own bad hand management stranding ANV up the valley. Of course, the dice conspired...

I'm newly interested in the English Civil Wars, Cromwell, Charles I, etc. Have any good book recommendations on the matter?
275 12/1/2018 11:32:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Missed your SP removal. I added another file for them; you can rest your psyche now overnight if you feel the need.

274 12/1/2018 11:24:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #80: 1 / Southern Religious Revival
Confederate player immediately receives three SPs in a single space, and loses three SW points. SPs must be placed in a friendly controlled space (including Pro-Union spaces) with a LOC free of Union SPs.

Message from Union:
Well, I'll go ahead and set up another move; you can remove the 3 SPs as part of your next move.

EP:
USA SW = 91+ -5 -3 = 83-
CSA SW = 78- -10 = 68-

I will promote Grant to command of the AoP and transfer Burnside to the AoC; Pope goes to the TRT.

USA SW = 83- -6(Burnside) -4(Pope) = 73-.

File up shortly.

268 12/1/2018 11:04:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate 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 Confederate:
Not quite the miracle. Well, I'm dead now. Worse still, not only did I not get the campaign card that could've saved me I got this instead.
I'll leave tallying up the debacle to you with another move coming.
267 12/1/2018 11:04:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Correct. I still have some MPs left, so I'll finish off my turn here.
