47 4/19/2019 11:30:00 AM Summer 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.

20 4/8/2019 3:09:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message Don't believe the move to Pittsburg is legal. The tournament calls for rule 19.0 to be in play. Rule 8.1.3 under rule 19.0 would have the spaces from Grafton to Wheeling cost 2MP's each. This would exceed the move allowed by Johnston. The spaces of Lewiston, Johnston and Harrisburg would also count as 2MP's each.

Yes lets use 5.67, I think it is also standard for the tournament.

I suggest we exchange files at the end of each turn to check but during move.
