20 4/1/2019 2:53:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #102: 3 / First Manassas
Confederate Player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (5 space maximum) 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. 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:
Activate JJ (n4) in Culpepper

1. Manassas
2. Frederick

I'll go ahead and resolve since you have no cards/intercept options.

15 3/31/2019 8:52:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message AoP leaves 1SP in DC.

14 3/31/2019 8:50:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Discard Strategy card Message from Union:
Discard per CSA card instructions
13 3/29/2019 4:37:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate 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.

Message from Confederate:
12 3/29/2019 4:23:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #10: 3 / Dorothea Dix
Union immediately receives three SPs. Place in the Union Capital or in any space (friendly or not) that contains a Union army with a LOC.

Place PC in Parkersburg, Grafton, and Weston WV
11 3/28/2019 9:29:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message My typo was saying Winchester when I meant Manassas. End result is Beauregard is now in Richmond and JJ (n4) are now in Culpepper. That should be possible with 8 moves.
10 3/28/2019 9:28:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I just double-checked my map and everything looks ok to me.

9 3/28/2019 9:21:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Little confused by your move

Bureaugard is in Manassas not Wilderness

Direct movement is not possible between Richmond and Hanover (Fredricksburg is between).
Likewise direct movement is not possible between Hanover and Wilderness (Gordonsville is between)
By my calculation, JJ moved over 12 spaces when limit for Corps movement is 8 spaces
8 3/26/2019 4:56:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #59: 2 / Farragut
Union may make a naval more with up to three SPs plus one general. Move may pass one ungarrisoned fort without “running the guns” to conduct an amphibious assault (may not pass an ironclad). Ignore first torpedo encountered during naval move. If the port space is captured it immediately receives a Union PC marker. Add +2 to Running the Guns die roll.

Message from Confederate:
1. JJ (n1) to Strasbourg
2. Winchester - pickup Beauregard & 3sp (n4)
3. Fredericksburg
4. Hanover
5. Richmond, drop Beauregard
6. Hanover
7. Wilderness
8. JJ ends in Culpepper (n4)
7 3/26/2019 3:36:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #75: 2 / Western Concentration Block
Confederate player can either remove or demote an army commander in any state except Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Florida for no political cost. OR 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 Remove from deck if event is played.
