335 5/23/2019 5:11:00 PM Turn 3 USA Message Thanks for the game. I'd never played this scenario before, but I could see how, with some more favorable combat dice, this one could easily be a CSA win. I should have never volunteered to play the USA, in hindsight.

There were a number of interesting decision points. I thought for sure that you'd block all the passes and then throw a screen around the WTs, but you had other plans. There were a lot of options. Of course, cavalry actions play quite a bit differently from infantry actions. You did very well on movement and initiative dice (I could hardly move, which changed my strategy on turns 2 and 3), but came up short on the combat dice. It was the other way around for me.

An interesting game. I love this series.
334 5/11/2019 4:53:00 PM Turn 3 CSA Message D for both of us.
Imboden is now F4 and D.
NE on Gregg.
I see no path for either the wagons or a Confederate victory, so I concede.
Good game. You beat me pretty solidly. A few good combat rolls might have made for more suspense in the last turn, but I misplayed some things early in the game and you played flawlessly.
Congrats

272 4/29/2019 3:08:00 PM Turn 2 USA End Turn
271 4/29/2019 3:08:00 PM Turn 2 USA Message You're right about Jenkins. Vassal's refusal to flip counters to/from exh. and disorg. keeps tripping me up.

Merritt lost 1MV, so he should be 1MV, disorg, and exh.

The Rebs do have a tall order, but the dice can always help out. You've had good luck at getting looong strings of inits. My EMs were poor on T2, but great on T1. Your MP rolls fell off somewhat.

Let's hope for a fun finish.
270 4/28/2019 1:32:00 PM Turn 2 CSA Message One question. Merritt is disorg and exh. Did he also lose an sp? Or is he still at 2sp?
269 4/28/2019 1:29:00 PM Turn 2 CSA Message Yup, forgot to record that last move by Gamble and Devins. Got it now.
I did forget Jenkins. He is in 0715, but I have him as ok. He was at F1 at the end of the turn, so recovers fully.
I agree on the vps. USA minor victory at this point.
I have to get my wagons to Williamsport and I have to find at least 1vp somehow.
Not looking good for the Rebs...

268 4/27/2019 7:49:00 PM Turn 2 USA Message I think you forgot the last move by Devin and Buford/Gamble, as they're in 0616 and 0618, respectively.

You're also missing:

0715 Jenkins exh, disorg

Since it's now turn 3, we should also make sure we're on the same page about VP totals. I see VPs=11 now (6 for 2xWT=D during EM, 5 for USA in Hagerstown).

Let's make sure we're on the same page before starting T3.
267 4/27/2019 3:14:00 PM Turn 2 CSA Message Confeds pass as well.
Here is what I have after recovery.
Check to make sure we are in agreement.
