69 4/21/2019 12:00:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Irwin McDowell, Savior of the Republic, rolling the critical cavalryless intercept. Who’d of thunk it?

Thanks, Joshua, and good luck to you as well.

68 4/21/2019 12:17:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Dave I will go ahead and concede. That was disaster for the confederates that I have never experienced on turn 2. Had I been able to preserve the potential for creating an army, I may have been ok, but I'm down to a single SP in the East. Congrats, and good luck in your other games.
67 4/19/2019 11:36:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message It's doubly tough with 90 day enlistments expiring ...
66 4/19/2019 11:32:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message You'll have my next move tomorrow...I'm not sure there is a point in my continuing.

49 4/19/2019 9:27:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Oops, there's a consequence to your forced retreat: you have one too many leaders stacked in Fredericksburg. I think I choose which one is removed ... looking it up.

20 4/8/2019 5:32:00 PM Spring 1861 Moderator Message correct... your opponent did not wait for you to play a reaction card and rolled the dice, you DO have the option to backtrack to play reaction card... discard all dice rolled ... reroll all combat.
19 4/8/2019 4:43:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message (Short answer: reroll.)
18 4/8/2019 4:42:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message It’s very simple. If you want to play it, play it, and we rewind to that point, tossing all my dice rolls. You get the benefit of seeing what the result would be of not playing it before deciding.
17 4/8/2019 3:23:00 PM Spring 1861 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:
so, I have this....what would the procedure be if I wanted to use this for the intercept, as you've already rolled the dice? Would we accept the rolls as they stand or reroll. I will ask the GM

His answer may decide if I want to do so.
