332 8/22/2019 12:25:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I'm gonna stand pat and let you take a swing if you have teh card to do so. your abundance of 3's has been troublesome.
331 8/22/2019 11:46:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message you are right. 3-2. so AONV would have dropped to 1. let me see if i need to reconfigure my Van Dorn move in light of that.
330 8/19/2019 4:26:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message shouldnt it be 3v2? your ANOVA should be up to 2 now right?
329 8/19/2019 2:00:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #7: 1 / Mud March
Interrupt enemy force currently moving to no more than one space of movement. (Converting a space counts as movement.) Applies to only one move during a Major or Minor campaign card, but not a special army-naval move.

Message from Confederate:
activate Van Dorn, 1 Sp, leaves 1 behind. 3 MP to Manassas, drop 1 there, n3 in AONV, 4th-6th MP to Grafton, pu 1, n1 and n4 in Grafton. 7th-8th to Strasburg and halt.

319 8/18/2019 1:44:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #103: 3 / Seven Days/Chattanooga
Either player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (10 space maximum) to the same space with a General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more enemy SPs or fort. OR play this card as an automatic 2 space interception. Intervening space must be friendly controlled and free of enemy SPs. The intervening space may be the one just exited by the moving enemy force. No Generals or SPs may be picked up or dropped off during the intercept.

Message from Confederate:
let's use this event now. Take 2 from Richmond into A of Miss, n7 and n1 in Richmond. 3 MPs to march into WV and take the fight to Pope in Wheeling. Unless you have a response cards, there will be no way to evade or intercept.
318 8/15/2019 7:46:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #47: 3 / CSA Recognizes KY, MO, MD and DE
Confederate places a total of two SPs in any single space in KY, MO, MD or DE that contains a general or army in these states. The space can be controlled by either side or neutral and does not require a LOC. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
move freemont, drop sp in baton rouge, end in freemont (N3)
317 8/15/2019 1:36:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #1: 1 / Empty Haversacks
Can be played as an Interrupt card to cancel the activation of any Confederate force, OR during a Union player's turn to cause a Confederate force to immediately execute an attrition procedure. In addition, conduct Forage if force has no LOC.

Message from Union:
299 7/24/2019 1:43:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Let me knwo if you have any confusion about the rule.
298 7/23/2019 1:38:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message small problem, you can't re-deploy a cav general (with his integral SP that always accompanies unless sent to turn track) via the general relocation movement. You have to activate that general alone as part of campaign card or ops and then move per the MP rating for cav of 10 MP (can't use RR bonus either).

that won't be enough to get Pleasanton over there. My recommendation would be to remove him as attrition loss in the end of turn sequence and then assign him as cav general again in general placement phase. you can also have a corp commander take him with as a corp move and give yourself a 2nd striking force in the east that will then have the ability to intercept more ably.

296 7/18/2019 6:44:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #73: 1 / Ball's Bluff
The Union removes one SP (Confederate chooses) within two spaces (including a river connection) of a Confederate SP due to poor leadership. A Union SP can be removed from a Coastal fort.

295 7/18/2019 1:16:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #11: 2 / Nathaniel Lyon
Union places or flips three PC markers in Missouri. The spaces may not contain Confederate SPs or forts.

Message from Confederate:
activate PGT, moves to Grafton (pope can only intecept with a card due to 0 def and no cav)-Franklin-Strasburg-AONV/Manassas. pu 4 SPs and Gen Jackson, n5; n2 left in AONV. back to Strasburg, drop Jackson and 4 SPs there, n1 left with PGT and 5 SPs in Strasburg. Last move/6th MP back to Manassas where PGT re-joins the AONV, n3. BTY
294 7/18/2019 1:06:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message one piece of advice i would recommend to you. you need to spread out your cavalry units so there is only 1 per army. you only need 1 cav, any cav to not suffer the army no cav intel penalty so stacking 2 of them together only gives you a small bonus in being able to pick the better defensive cav general (can only ever use 1 cav general subordinate rating in a single battle anyways).
293 7/17/2019 11:32:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Lee is a bear to bring to battle if he doesn't want to fight. the key is to make it so costly for him to retreat that he has to stand and fight...and then until Grant comes you better hope for a good die roll or some other good fortune like a CSA leader loss to Jackson or JEB Stuart.
292 7/17/2019 9:50:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message damn...well go back and leave SP in mckenzie and end in columbus

Everything in the union and confederate states are always one or the other. Even when cavalry remove an enemy PC in a home state with raid function they simply remove the PC reverting it to underlying inherent pc. If they raid in a border state it goes back to a neutral space

283 7/14/2019 9:34:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message 3-2*. so if i had rolled 1 lower, it would have been 2*-2 and you win with '*'.

266 7/9/2019 8:59:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message ok lets do this:

1) ocean move 2 SP from DC (n8) to banks (n4) = 2SM
2) rail 2 from cinci (n4) to cairo (n6) = 4 SM
3) rail 4 from cinci and somerst to AoM (n8) = 9SM
4) rail 4 from DC (n4) to AoP (n8) = 13 SM
5) rail 2 pittsburgh/johnston to wheeling (n3) = 15SM

that should work right?

263 7/9/2019 3:18:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message with your last 7 SM's you need to decide how to allocate between DC to AOP and DC to Banks.

DC back to 10 SP how it started strat moves.
Banks has his 2 he started with and AOP their 4. West was fine except you never charged for the Somerset SP moving over.

I'll go ahead and add my reinforcements for now in another log just to move along since you don't have to do SM until after my reinf
262 7/9/2019 3:12:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message that is 2 moves too many. you had 15 counted but then you added a 5th ocean move and added a 4th DC to AOP. but you also left yourself with 4 in DC when it had been 10 at start of turn and you still have 4 there despite sending a lot more than 6 units out. Also, when you use a land/rail combo move to an army (an allowable exception) it still takes up part of your rail/strat capacity for the turn (1 for each SP moved) so your somerset move you didn't count but it would count. I'm going ot back out the units that need to be for now and let you proceed with a follow on log

making log now with fixes and backing out the overages.
261 7/9/2019 3:01:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message your progress in the western theater is sitll very good considering you haven't gotten Grant yet and this should be a time of Lee running wild but instead he has had to busy himself plugging gaps in the West which is never a good thing.

248 6/25/2019 4:59:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message relevant rule is in: 5.24.

i'll leave it to you to react, i woudl recommend just standing pat and seeing if you have a chance to intercept somehwere else because you will lose -15 SW min if you successfully intercept but if army destoryed, only 10 SW lost, no general demotion penalty.
247 6/25/2019 4:37:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message yep, that's right I attacked you with Smith as corp move and knocked you off Humboldt. ok, here goes:

1st, 2nd to Humboldt and convert the space plus pick up Smith and his 1 SP, n4 total. 3rd-attack Columbus KY and your AOT with 2 SPs. you have 2 options. Stay and fight without attempting to intercept, Pope can't retreat with his 0 def and no cav. or attempt an intercept with AOM, Burnside will succeed only on a 1. if that works, 2 armies will be in the same space and you will have to dissolve one and pay the -10 SW penalty of losing an army as the north plus teh penalty for removing the army commander.


246 6/25/2019 4:15:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #92: 2 / Baltimore Revolts
Confederate may place a friendly PC marker in Baltimore, MD, if the space is vacant.

Message from Confederate:
as much as I want to use this to block the only rail link you have to DC which would make you have to use the alternate 4 SP in east in alternate location rather than 8 in DC as eastern reinforcement, I think I need to strike a blow where I'm guaranteed to remove one of your armies in the West and relieve some pressure.

activate Lee, he will move out towards Humboldt but I'm not so sure that the space is supposed to be under USA control righ tnow, need to search the log quick.

243 6/24/2019 9:14:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message correct..missed that my fault..instead i will convert corinth and lexington and end in mcknenzie..no attacks..didnt realize AoW have basically have almost auto intercept with lee + cavalary
242 6/22/2019 4:47:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message waiting n you to correct
241 6/19/2019 5:39:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message a couple problems, there is no direct connection from Pittsburg landing to Lexington. You have to go to Corinth MS first. also, you are best off only rolling interception for someone if that is goign to be the only time they will have a chance to intercept. in this case if you alter your move so you can legally attack into Humboldt (say by moving through Corinth and Lexington and skipping converting those spaces before goign to McKenzie and converting then attacking with 6th MP) then I would almost certainly prefer to intercept there. so in this case you should offer to me to intercept since there is only one interception allowed per activation, and you might also fake me out and have me hold my powder dry expecting to intercept with Lee and then perhaps you end up just marching around converting spaces and Smith never used up his interception chance thinking we would wait for Lee's chance.

TLDR, you need to re-do your movement path...i will not attempt to intercept with Smith but I might intercept if you attempt to attack into Humboldt or move adjacent to the A of the West. I've createda follow up log with your Army having used 1 MP to convert Pitt Landing sicne that is likely where you will want to make your first move but you can restart the whole thing if you want and move a different way.
