88 2/28/2019 12:36:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message i'll send you an eamil about playing POG (if you are interested when i finally get my corrected copy from the online store i ordered...they are waiting for the corrected cards I think).

it was good playing with you as usual.
87 2/26/2019 12:30:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Well, I pretty much went all-in in shifting all troops to AoNV and I couldnt get a PA-raid out of it without putting AoNV into a terrible position. If I fight Pope, I wont get a raid. If I wont fight Pope, AoNV is between hammer and the anvil next turn which kills it.
86 2/26/2019 10:09:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message why exactly are you resigning? you won the battle 3*-3 since it isn't a capital space.

if you want to take a break from playing for awhile and resume when POG tournament is over that is fine. your heart doesn't seem in it righ tnow which I understand.
85 2/26/2019 12:33:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Well thats bad. 3*-3. I'll guess that was that then.
I'll resign.

77 2/25/2019 3:43:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message no worries. sleep well my friend. i'll send a response email to you later too! sorry, it's been so busy at work lately, lots of changes, one new hire I'm helping train and i'm getting a new assistant to help me because i just can't keep up with my workload anymore.
76 2/25/2019 3:35:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Rosie activates with 2 SP, leaves 1 behind. 4 MP to cairo and pu4 SPs, n6. 5th-Paducah and drop 1, n5. 6th-launch attack on Columbus fort at 5-1, medium battle. Please roll the combat if you don't have an interrupt/intercept card.

depending on if I win and the manner of victory, I might change how i finish move unless you beat me straight up of course.
75 2/25/2019 3:31:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Hoh. I'll guess the ACTS has new features to spot which side needs a bit help.

Oh, going to sleep now so will see what you are up to in the morning.
74 2/25/2019 3:30:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message i really want to take a coastal fort because i never shut down yoru blockade zones in this game but:
A. eastern theater needs lots of men to plug the different avenues of advance for your army and I don't want to pull 2 SPs from that theater.

B. it's always such a long pay off to take out each fort in a zone once at least one has been manned since i have to hope to get a 1* result and that's hard without AA modifier which i can't seem to get cards for.
73 2/25/2019 3:28:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message and yet you still win every time :*(

maybe the game just wants you to have a handicap to make it a better match ;)
72 2/25/2019 3:23:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message You and your campaigns. No reaction.
71 2/25/2019 3:21:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message pope will take 5 SP with him, leaving 5 behind in AOP.

moves to Fredererick, drop 3, n2 w/Pope and n4 there in Frederick. 2nd-DC and drop 1 there, n1 w/Pope.

3rd-Baltimore and pu3, n4. 4th MP to Getty and drop 2, n2. and then to Harrisburg and finish.
reaction??
70 2/25/2019 3:13:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message oops, math got messed up from start. goign to have to tweak the first activation.
69 2/25/2019 3:12:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #121: 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.

Message from Union:
Pope takes 4 SPs from AOP, n6 left there. moves to Fredererick, drop 3, n3 w/Pope and n4 there in Frederick. 2nd-DC and drop 1 there, n2 w/Pope. 3rd-Baltimore and pu 2, n4 for Pope and n1 in Baltimore. 4th-5th Getty - Chambersburg and halt. Reaction ?

you can't intercept or anything but you might have a cancellation card. if none, i will continue.
68 2/25/2019 2:53:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Hoh, hope you dont manage to find any holes.

But anyway, the PoG-tourney is double-elimination yes. The rounds last for 4 months for the first game at least. Happened to notice that the Invincible Finn Riku Riekkinen himself is attending the tourney as newcomer. Better to check how he makes his moves to maybe learn something.
67 2/25/2019 2:50:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message ooops, was forgetting that you were finishing your move from the turn. i thought about holding my shot with Burnie and i should have just to keep the threat there.

working through my move on VASSAL but i keep finidng holes. guess there is no way around that.
66 2/25/2019 2:39:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message You couldnt have intercepted as you already did that with Burnie.
65 2/25/2019 2:37:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message so close.

63 2/25/2019 2:25:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I saw the first email about beginning of your turn...was just seeing about how it was going since then. is it double elimination or how do they run that one?

too bad you changed yoru move, i was going to go for a fun cut off move against you but now I can't :(
62 2/25/2019 2:23:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message ok just watched log and it was way different.

60 2/25/2019 1:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message PoG tourney is going ok. Trying to grind my way through German lvl2 trenches at the moment. Sent you an email earlier when it was at earlier state.

Didn't sign up for the FtP tourney. Didn't have BPA-membership back then and I had so many ongoing games at the moment that didn't want to risk of hoarding new ones.

57 2/25/2019 11:22:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message my luck is a product of clean living and a pure heart ;)

i'm thinking on where to go. how is your POG tournament game going? did you not sign up for the FTP tournament also? i think you would do well.
56 2/25/2019 12:30:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message 2*-2. Always lucky. Where will you retreat.

43 2/22/2019 8:27:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #101: 3 / Chickamauga
Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5.
