178 1/1/2019 4:01:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate 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.

Message from Confederate:
103+ is pretty decent at this point, but still not 110+. I saw no way to gain 9SW unless I had 3 wins in 3 large battles. Doesn't matter, when this comes up again, 103+ will seem a long way back in the rear view mirror.

So...fort in Marshall, TX.

Might as well, don't see where letting you hit me will help. Going to be bloody anyhow, with my odds of losing a GO fairly high.

Need 1-5 for the intercept.
135 12/30/2018 11:41:00 AM Summer 1862 Union 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.

Was hoping I could move AoNV out of position with the head fake into the valley by AoP ...

McDowell counsels President Lincoln, "Sir, this mission is doomed to failure," but he is instructed to do it anyway.

AoP (15-1) drops 1 in Manassas (14-1) > Fredericksburg ... intercept with AoNV?
