481 11/23/2019 7:04:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message That probably won't work either - I can intercept Pope on a 5 or less in Greencastle. Your call - but you will take at least one off me even if I intercept.

It doesn't fix the problem entirely but Curtis + 2SP in Washington can take 2 of the 5 spaces I hold in OH, not a great solution, but you are positioned to take more back next turn
480 11/23/2019 6:59:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message ok. I thought to degrade your army by even a few SPs might be worth it, but you are correct.

Instead. AOC 14.

Pope and 5SPs (AOC n9).

479 11/23/2019 6:39:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message That's not a good idea - that is a large battle that I think you are close to certain to lose

If the CSA has 2:! ratio of SW the USA loses

It would be better to try and cut me back from control 3 spaces in OH

475 11/23/2019 6:26:00 AM Spring 1864 Confederate Message I intercepted in Richmond - two armies can't be in the same space, see 5.24 for the consequences
474 11/23/2019 6:25:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message Not sure what has happened here?

How can the ANV intercept in Amelia ( it is not an adjacent space)?

If no intercept, then the Richmond battle goes ahead; what have I missed?
