Init 14: Slough constructs abatis.
Init 15: CSA (However, I did take additional actions if you want to pass).

137 10/14/2018 6:18:00 PM Turn 8 Rudy Message 13: CSA passes

136 10/14/2018 1:13:00 PM Turn 8 Jeff Message Init 12: Lowell moves to Ft. Ripley

10: USA.
132 10/14/2018 9:52:00 AM Turn 8 Rudy Message I don't know what happened. I seem to have created 2 files. I meant to move Echols and then move Johnson. Init 9 was won by the US.
131 10/14/2018 6:54:00 AM Turn 8 Jeff Message You are correct, Ricketts cannot move into that space. I thought since the space was occupied by friendly forces, a unit using movement by rail could move to or through the ZOC. However, the rules make no exception for such circumstances. Good catch.

I redid the move and with Kenly marching to Frederick Junction instead. If you want to play that I must move Ricketts since I already "touched the piece" let me know and I'll redo again.

I did not re-roll for init 7, since I had already done so and the CSA had won the initiative.

Init 6: Kenly marches to Frederick Junction.

126 10/13/2018 4:39:00 PM Turn 8 Rudy Message Init 2: Gordon barely moves, he is so weighted down with levy loot!
Init 3: USA
125 10/13/2018 4:01:00 PM Turn 8 Jeff Message Corrected a few minor things with CSA recovery. Let me know if you disagree with any of the Changes.

Another Div of AoP reinforcements departs for the Potomac.

Some Maryland units attach to consolidate forces.

100 10/1/2018 9:10:00 PM Turn 7 Rudy Message What would be the flank modifier? I know +3 ratio, -1 artillery and 0 tactical.

Any Cav Retreat for McCausland?

Init 12: Pass to USA

90 9/30/2018 6:47:00 AM Turn 6 Jeff Message Init 10: 8 IL Cav Reg retreats across the Monacasy.
Init 11: CSA...
89 9/30/2018 6:34:00 AM Turn 6 Jeff Message Rudy, I found a mistake from my last recovery. Mulligan is in the fort hex which is considered a redoubt hex for Union forces (RitWH rule: A5.4). Therefore, during the last recovery, Mulligan should have entrenched to “Fort-1” instead of “Breastwork Complete” (Basic Rules, 9.0, Entrenchments 1864, first bullet).

I am going to correct before my next move. However, I know sometimes, in tournament play, there is a statute of limitations on making corrections to previous moves, so if you disagree with my interpretation or want to limit time to make corrections, let me know and I will change it back.

78 9/26/2018 5:45:00 AM Turn 5 Jeff Message Oh yeah, no problem with the log file. I did not get a chance to log a move in any case.
77 9/26/2018 5:34:00 AM Turn 5 Jeff Message In order to delete the supply point, you need to hold "shift" and then left click the counter to select. Once it is selected, you can manipulate like any other counter. This is also how you would move/delete VP hexes, indestructible bridge markers, RR destroyed markers, etc.

I agree that Mulligan and Weber are surrounded and the HF surrender rules will apply.

Init 23: Tyler moves to Frederick
Init 24: CSA...


76 9/25/2018 1:28:00 PM Turn 5 Rudy Message Sorry, I forgot to end the logfile.

Init 8: USA
66 9/23/2018 6:54:00 AM Turn 5 Jeff Message Init 6: Activate 1 PHB Reg.
Cav Retreat?

I assumed that Jackson and McCausland did not want to retreat and continued to make moves. If Jackson and/or McCausland did want to retreat, you can save the game at that point and make the retreats.

58 9/21/2018 8:08:00 PM Turn 4 Rudy Message I agree about Imboden and moved him back 1.

Init 22: CSA passes . . .

57 9/17/2018 5:39:00 AM Turn 4 Jeff Message I think Imboden incurs +1 MP penalty for exiting ZOC. If you agree, you can move him back a space or take the MP from his next move.

Init 21: 8 IL Cav Reg enjoys a nice picnic and then strolls a little close toward the action.
Init 22: CSA...

Init 17: USA
53 9/15/2018 12:18:00 PM Turn 4 Jeff Message I agree that Mulligan should have lost an additional MV due to the extended march. I adjusted his MV down to 4.

Init 13: USA
51 9/15/2018 10:55:00 AM Turn 4 Jeff Message I recorded your VPs and added a line to the Scenario notes recording the VP. I'm not sure if we are supposed to tally all VPs during the VP phase or as they are earned.

Init 1: Stahel moves south
Init 2: CSA

You can also do any leader transfers if you wish.
47 9/14/2018 8:05:00 PM Turn 3 Rudy Message CSA passed. Your idea for CSA passing is ok with me. I did CSA recovery. Back to you.
46 9/14/2018 1:20:00 PM Turn 3 Jeff Message No worries! This was a busy week, so I could not have played much more in any case!

However, I came up with an idea on how to speed things up in this situation and tried it on this log file. Basically, when the CSA won an initiative, I assumed that you would pass and continued to make some more moves. When you get to these points in the log file, if this assumption is correct, then you can simply continue to step through the log file to see my next move. However, if at any point where this occurs, you do not want to pass, then you can save the game there and start a new log file and make your moves.

With the CSA having a small number of units compared to the US, we may encounter the same situation on future turns.

Init 21: 8 IL Cav moves to Ft. Penn
Init 22: CSA... (although I made more moves in the event that you pass)

back to you...





45 9/13/2018 9:24:00 PM Turn 3 Rudy Message Sorry, my passing must not be fun for you. But I pass once again.
