34 4/18/2019 12:48:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I believe because USA controls both FT Philip-Jackson and Sabine City that the Port in the West is considered blocked. This means you don't get an SP and take a SW loss.

Springfield MO
Kansas City, MO
St Joseph MO
28 4/16/2019 11:07:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message A couple of notes:

Your last move doesn't make any sense. You already have control of all three territories you are trying to place PC markers in. Check out section 11.3 for the rules about placing PC's via a card play.

When we do get to SW adjustment, you will capture WV and all of the spaces in WV will get CSA PC markers.

In addition, USA will get a PC marker in Ft St Phillip/Jackson which will come with a SW adjustment (+1 for USA/ -1 for CSA as well as any adjustments for +/- flips)

In any case, go ahead and back up to your PC move and either claim 3 spaces in border states or use the card however you see fit). Let me know what questions you may have :)

Good luck!

Good Luck.

My record is 0-2, still learning the game so let me know if I make any mistakes.

Unfortunately, I have had major issues with Java so I don't use Vassal. I usually use Cyberboard and can send files from there.

Ken

I'm looking forward to our game! I'd love to share maps (I prefer Vassal) but I'm up for whatever works for you.

Best of luck! - Mike
