208 2/7/2019 12:22:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message OK do you have any cards to play or should I roll for the battle?
207 2/3/2019 2:00:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Agree on 7 SP, forgot to change Union loses after I misread results of last battle.
206 2/3/2019 1:55:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message That is what I thought but in my other game, James ruled otherwise. Here is the message I received from him when my opponent asked for a ruling based on what I thought, using the same we were using.

"2. what I think Ken is not grasping is that when a cav leader is placed on board, he comes alone by himself... there is no "free" SP attached ... which is why when you place cav leader reinforcement on map, you place in a location with at least 1 SP so as to show that the cav leader is now mated to its cav brigade... see Rule 10.64."
205 2/3/2019 1:18:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Cavalry generals are really not used except when randomly drawing where they come in. Once a cavalry general is placed on the board, he is immediately paired up with a SP to form a cavalry brigade. This process cannot be reversed, although if a cavalry general is killed, the SP is removed and comes in next turn as a infantry SP replacement (cavalry general's replacement can be paired up to this or another SP to form new cavalry brigade.)

Since cavalry SP's are counted separately from infantry SP's, and you cannot convert from one to the other, the convention is to tabulate them separately - Thus ANV n5c3 meaning ANV has 5 infantry SP's, with an additional 3 cavalry brigades (SP's with attached cavalry leaders.)
204 2/3/2019 1:13:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Per 170 ANV entered battle of Baltimore with 8 SP's (n5c3 meaning 5 infantry, 3 cavalry.) Per 178 battle of Baltimore was a 1-3*, wiping out Curtis and reducing ANV to n4c3. Per 199 ANV picked up n1at Manassas, and n2 in Frederick, thus now is n7c3 attacking Washington.
203 2/3/2019 10:08:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message I believe ANoV only has 5SP. Started with 5 in message 170, lost 3 in message 178, picked up 3 this move.
202 2/3/2019 10:02:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message I wanted to check on Cavalry. I just got corrected in my other game. Cavalry have no SP unless they were added to the Cav Gen. I didn't see any message showing SP were added to Cav, did I miss them?


201 2/2/2019 5:11:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Medium battle, USA +3 (fort, leader) CSA +10 (fort, leader, odds)

You may play cards and roll for battle.
200 2/2/2019 5:06:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Make that n7c3 (forgot about the other two cavalry brigades)
199 2/2/2019 5:05:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #4: 1 / Costly Mistake
Pick an enemy army with two or more subordinate generals (includes Cavalry Generals) and randomly determine a target general. On a die roll of 1-3 the chosen general is killed and removed from play. On a die roll of 4-6 the general is wounded and removed from play, but re-enters during the reinforcement phase of the next game turn.

Message from Confederate:
ANV to Frederick to Manassas, pick up smith n1 (now n5c1) to Frederick, pick up JJ n2 (now n7c1) attack Washington...
198 2/2/2019 10:30:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message 2nd activation, activate Fremont with 1, leaving 1 in St Louis

Move Fremont to Bloomington
197 2/2/2019 10:28:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message correct on unit placements
McClellan only has the 5 and will stop in Harrisburg, n6
196 2/2/2019 9:18:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Just to confirm you have sp's in Harrisburg, Gettysburg, Philly, and Trenton. McClellan did not pick up any SP's other than the 5 he brought from the west.

Also, to get the rail bonus of +2 MP you have to move exclusively along friendly railroads. Since Harrisburg has a Confederate PC, this would stop McClellen there after 8 MP's.

Is this your move (McClellan to Harrisburg n5 plus n1 already there), or do you wish to reconsider?
195 2/2/2019 7:24:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Event #86: 3 / Minor Campaign
Conduct up to two moves or conduct one special army-size naval move. No SP, general, or army marker may be moved twice with the same campaign card. You must move a different force each move.

Leader loss CSA, USA
178 1/24/2019 5:59:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Sorry it's been a long time since I looked at the board, and I sometimes get this game confused with the other one I am playing simultaneously. By my reckoning results of this medium battle is a 1-3* with Confederate defenders winning. Let's go through it together:

Union has n3 plus Curtis (contrary to Confederate rumors, Stoneman is with the AoP in Washington.) Curtis is a 0-1 - good on the defense but a 0 on the offense.

Confederates have ANV so can use Lee plus 2 other general's defensive rating - in this case Stuart and Van Dorn for a total of +6.

Confederates successfully intercepted for a +2. These are the only modifiers I can see.

Union rolled a 5 with is a 1 result. Confederates rolled a 6, with a +8 DRM for a 14, which is a 3*.

Confederates lose 1 but win battle. Curtis goes to track, his 3 SP's are wiped out. However, Confederates must roll for leader loss on a 1-3, Union on a 1 only.
177 1/24/2019 4:53:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Looks like 3-3 with defender losing. and leader loss checks. Please confirm

175 1/24/2019 12:21:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message I lost one in the second battle which was a 5-5, but not the first battle. The first battle was a medium battle and the results were 1-3*, meaning attacker loses 1, defender loses 3. This keeps the elite unit alive - it is only lost when the side using it loses 2 or more, and in this case the CSA being the attacker lost only 1.

174 1/24/2019 7:07:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message You used one in message 90 and one in message 160
