63 4/24/2019 2:59:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message - Hi Geoff,
- Couple of question

- On the SM I believe you have to be on railroads to use it.
- Thinking Lexington MO and Weston WV are limited with just having roads?

56 4/23/2019 12:32:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I think you are right, I've been playing away from the map, and my memory is faulty.

3 vs 2 will be 5, which is still a small battle, but you only have +1 for leader, no odds.

With those rolls, it will be a 0/1 battle, and ASJ with 2 will retreat back to Nashville, while Pope holds Bowling Green with 2.

Sound right?
