263 9/26/2020 7:47:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message Think I answered this but just in case so that you can finish your move.

Forrest can be added if he is in your reinf pool. Moving him is a problem b/c he can go on the RRs but then can move 11 spaces to get to the AOSW - swamps count as two spaces. Make sense?

Freebie – 1 TM SP to Clarksville
DD1 LDR to AoW – R to L 1-5

256 9/21/2020 7:46:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message AOSW is in supply per depots so could place SPs and comms from incoming reinfs. Everyone else on the map would need to be moved there.

See 10.2 and note that the Union cannot do this using the sea. They have to use sea lift and commands to dump SPs into an army that came by sea. This is why most Union players do not do it as it's a lot of resources.
255 9/21/2020 7:40:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message It's about the same attitude with COVID for the responsible people and then those who don't care resent the restrictions and expose more people.
254 9/21/2020 4:02:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Shannon - am awaiting your response to my query about the A o SW. I have started using Vassal 3.4.2. I understand one can continue using Vassal 3.2.17 to open files created on Vassal 3.4.2. This only becomes a problem if the Vassal game module changes to a 3.4 module. Hope this doesn't cause problems.
253 9/9/2020 6:46:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message CSA iNIT = 7

Log uploaded - separate log follows as soon as possible. But a quick rules question - can I attach Leaders and SP to the AoW or are their lines of communication severed due to Union river control?

249 9/9/2020 6:34:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Taking advantage of decent upload and download speeds to update our game.
Problem is don't know when these speeds are going to drop from 90+ Mbps to virtually nothing!
Everyone in Europe is obsessing over the number of cases which are rising. But the number of hospitalisations and deaths are very low. The number of cases are increasing because countries are testing more and the test that is being used picks up tiny fragments of C19 so labels someone as positive when they are not. I have lived through many crises in my 68 years but I cannot remember a level of risk aversion that is verging on hysteria and I speak as someone with enough underlying conditions to make contracting C19 a serious issue for me. The only fact I know for certain is that the West has crashed its economy and the consequence of that in my opinion will be far more serious than the C19 pandemic. Rant over :-)
248 9/4/2020 11:32:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message How is COVID over there?
247 9/4/2020 11:32:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message No hurry. I am in a lot of games.

245 9/4/2020 8:17:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Had hoped to get gaming again on my return from holiday but have spent the last 4 days trying to resolve my Internet problems using remote diagnostics with the Inernet provider.
Unfortunately the problem remains unresolved so, although I will try and update games whenever I have a firm connection, I am afraid my turnaround will be delayed still further.
Other non gaming commitments mean that, realistically I do not expect to get back to regular gaming much before the week beginning Monday 7th September

239 8/5/2020 5:23:00 AM Turn 3 CSA Message I think it would save time if you were to do EoT. I have a lot of games running at present and there would be a few days delay before I could tackle it.

227 5/13/2020 4:45:00 AM Turn 3 CSA Message Shannon --- there is no log in folder but I fear another mistake has occurred. On the 4 May I won initiative with a DD of 1 (my log 98) I implemented your DD of 1 plus your missed freebie in log 99. I lost the initiative roll (on 7 May) and passed the baton to you with a DD of 3. On the 10 May you rolled for pulse but the CSA has not had a chance to implement the 7 May DD of 3. So I nned to see what you did with your DD of 3 before I make my move.

You should have taken your move and then passed the impulse back to me to take a 2DD move rather than rolling for a Pulse. Given that your first roll was a tie not sure how best to tackle this.

Your log 90 comes back to me with a DD of 3 - and, although it is difficult to be sure from the dialogue, it looks as if you only used 3DD. Can you check?

Stay healthy and have a good Easter.

Am activating the AoW using 3TMCP/3DD to stomp the Union SP in 1011

If I have calculated this correctly then my worst dr on table L will be 1 +2drm = 3 (on the M size DEF) which will inflict a d2 result on the USA. The best result the USA could achieve would be a 6 which would inflict 1 loss on me. Now for the actual rolls
