26 4/12/2019 8:57:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I've looked at the file, and since you attacked the mouth of the Miss, and I attacked Frederick, everything looks good..

Over to you.
25 4/12/2019 8:52:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message That's fine, but can we wait until the end of the turn to compare positions, I don't have access to a computer during the day, so it will slow the game down a lot if we compare after every card play..

Since we've only played 2 cards, I would imagine we'd still be in sync right now..

Over to you..
24 4/8/2019 1:04:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message I'm sending you a CB file for you to verify that it matches our current game position. I haven't used CB for years and it's been a bit of struggle to reacquaint myself with the software.
23 4/7/2019 9:29:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message Probably won't get to my move until tomorrow morning.
22 4/7/2019 9:28:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message Sorry, brain cramp on my part. I'd confused Baltimore with Frederick, which you'd already overrun.

20 4/7/2019 1:39:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Message #11 has the battle of Frederick, which you declined to intercept into (thus giving you a shot at Baltimore).
19 4/7/2019 1:38:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I don't understand messages 17 and 18, if AoP fails its intercept, then there is no battle, because Baltimore is empty, correct?
18 4/7/2019 1:32:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message We each lose 1 SP. Back to you.

Remove one Union commanding general at no SW penalty. Penalties for promoting a general with a lower political value still apply. OR remove ANY Union non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game. Remove from deck if event is played.

If two or more Confederate armies are in Virginia, the Confederate player places (Confederate choice) one army (placed, not moved) in a Confederate controlled Resource space (destroyed or not), Riverine port, or Blockade Runner port (open or closed) in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, or Texas. Remove from deck if event is played.

Over to you for resolution.
6 4/4/2019 12:24:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Only problem is that I don't use Vassel, I use Cyberboard.

I'm happy to do a manual end turn reconciliation here in the log, as an alternative..

4 4/4/2019 10:35:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Hi Geoff,

Do you want to exchange game moves via Vassal? If so, what frequency: after every move, at the end of a turn?

I'm comfortable with going by the ACTS log for individual card moves. But for Reinforcements, Strategic Movement, etc., it's helpful to have a Vassal map. It's too easy to get out of sync during those stages.
3 4/4/2019 7:49:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Union may go first..
