73 6/14/2019 5:19:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Oh, I wanted the 10 to destroy the army but never-mind.

2* vs 1 so AoP left on 1 SP and retreats. ANV on 8 SP in Frederick, MD and can continue moving.

Where would you like to retreat the AoP to?

Message from Confederate:
Maybe... maybe not.

CSA (+6 - +4 leaders, +2 ratio)
USA (+3 - +1 leader due to no cav, +2 fort)
71 6/14/2019 4:11:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message OK, finally found a spare moment, looks like we are losing DC early this war. Stay and fight, roll away.
70 6/11/2019 1:08:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Sorry I know I don't have much to do but working flat out. Will attend to this during mythical free time in due course.
69 6/8/2019 4:58:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Just a little reminder that it's your decision on retreat or not with the AoP.
68 5/30/2019 2:09:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Oh, you were only at +1 in the last battle I think because of no cavalry so you only get Rosecran's tactical rating (McDowell is at 0). Didn't make any difference but will mean +3 for next battle in Frederick, assuming it goes ahead and not +4.
67 5/30/2019 1:54:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #75: 2 / Western Concentration Block
Confederate player can either remove or demote an army commander in any state except Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Florida for no political cost. OR Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5 Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
The normally cautious JJ has convinced Jefferson Davis that if we concentrate forces we could be in Washington by Fall so we'll see.

Concentration:-

1 SP from Richmond, VA(1) to ANV(5)
2 SP from New Orleans, LA(0) to ANV(7)
1 SP from Nashville, TN(1) to ANV(8)
1 SP from Dover, TN(1) to ANV(9)

61 5/27/2019 4:34:00 PM 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.

Message from Confederate:
The people demand a March on Richmond. You can discard your last card and then do the move as I don't know if you want to leave 1 SP in the fort or not :)
60 5/27/2019 1:19:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #118: 3 / Mexican Supply Line
Confederate player receives 2 SP in any friendly controlled Texas space (both SPs placed in the same space). The space does not need a LOC. The space may not contain Union SPs or forts. If no eligible space exists the SPs are lost.

58 5/27/2019 8:36:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #77: 2 / Stop the War
Union SW reduced by five points. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
Yes, Beauregard is XO, sorry.

For some reason, the peace protesters are already marching - maybe it was my massacre at Frederick last turn!

Union lose 5 SW and 3 for fortunes of war to 96(-)
57 5/27/2019 6:06:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #37: 2 / Confederate Scientist
Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any friendly controlled space with a LOC, free of Union SPs or forts. No more than one SP per confederate controlled state. No SPs may be placed in Pro-Union spaces.

Message from Union:
Not a great surprise there! Beauregard is XO rather than another general I believe.

Activate Burnside and 6 SP
Louisville
Frankfort and drop 1 n5
Lexington and drop 1 n4
Falmouth and drop 1 n3
Lexington
Somerset and srop 1 n2

56 5/21/2019 2:12:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #124: 2 / Confederate Desertion

Message from Confederate:
Form the Army of Northern Virginia in Manassas, VA on 5 SP with J Johnston in command, Stuart as cavalry and Beauregard as another general.

-2 SW for ignoring AS Johnston - SW to 91(-)
55 5/21/2019 11:21:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #115: 2 / Galveston

Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:

28 4/23/2019 2:44:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Yep, I was thinking it wasn't an ideal turn one start but a successful raid and reducing your Eastern reinforcements would've given me something to show for it...

Now, definitely going to be a large uphill struggle but never-mind :)
27 4/23/2019 4:16:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Astonishing rolling as ever Mr. Bodkin, yes we'll come and play. Roll away.

23 4/22/2019 7:38:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #12: 3 / Cabinet Intrigue
Union SW reduced by three.

Message from Confederate:
This was a tricky choice but I really don't like just the 50-50 of Price managing to kick you out of Sabine City. I should probably have tried that last card play but it left Little Rock open so, blagh. This raid doesn't have a much better chance when the interception possibility is considered as well but fortifying New Orleans or any other play seems so passive. The maxim, when in doubt be aggressive with the Confeds (at least early) tipped me over so here goes...

J Johnston + 1 SP moves to Strasburg, VA then Manassas, VA and picks up Beauregard + 3 SP. 4 SP launch themselves at Frederick, MD where AoP can attempt intercept...
22 4/21/2019 5:41:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #29: 2 / Crittenden Compromise
Union places (or flips in border states) two PC markers in any spaces free of Confederate SPs or forts which are not Resource spaces, Blockade Runner Ports, or Coastal forts. Void after Emancipation Proclamation. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
Yeah I agonised over that for a while but I like opening up the front in Texas and it just seemed to be wrong to rely on your crap die rolling :-)

21 4/17/2019 5:11:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #67: 2 / J.B. Eads, Riverine Ironclads
The Union Amphibious Assault modifier is increased by two.

Message from Confederate:
Somewhat surprising to see you didn't raise the blockade there. I know it's a guaranteed closure of a blockade zone which is worth a lot over the course of the game but still :)

Place PC markers in Somerset, KY and Lebanon, KY
20 4/17/2019 2:58:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #69: 3 / Gideon Welles, The Naval Program
