940 9/15/2019 2:43:00 PM Turn 12 Union Message Thanks for the game. Obviously you were at a disadvantage due to your inexperience. Victory for the South usually is set up in the early turns, as you can see, once your initial forts/fortresses are overrun, it's very difficult to build a second line, especially after the river is lost. Its essential to build fortresses and depots to fall back on. It's also a game where the South prospers by smart defending and counterattacking. Lastly, the CRT is very different from USCW and requires a different strategy for attack and defense.
939 9/14/2019 11:23:00 PM Turn 12 Confederate Message OK.

Thanks for getting me to play this game, now I know why it's held in such high regard by so many. It does seem to portray the logistical difficulties of the war better than TUSCW.
938 9/14/2019 10:51:00 PM Turn 12 Union Message You spent 6 in your first phase, whereas the turn was for 5....

I think maybe now would be a good time to call it a game
937 9/14/2019 10:12:00 PM Turn 12 Confederate Message I assumed Ord had no avoid chance because of the enemy cav present this time. Last time, Stuart wasn't present.

13.1.2 A cavalry force always has the option to retreat before combat if
the force entering the cavalry’s hex is composed of non-cavalry. If the enemy
force contains a cavalry leader, then the cavalry forces cannot retreat before
combat. In addition, a Demoralized cavalry force cannot retreat before

851 9/9/2019 8:46:00 PM Turn 12 Confederate Message Do you want to rewind to the Grieson move and go from there? I might chase Grieson instead so as to not have him cutting my supply line. Then re-roll for the pulse?
850 9/9/2019 8:41:00 PM Turn 12 Confederate Message I thought Grant has Overrun Hampton up north. Maybe that was a case where Hampton lost his leader check.

Where would Grieson avoid to?
849 9/9/2019 8:40:00 PM Turn 12 Union Message Lee's attack on Norfolk would be a regular battle, tho it's probably an auto victory but you have to loss check all your leaders. Also, you will be OOS once you are in Norfolk
848 9/9/2019 8:36:00 PM Turn 12 Union Message Right, so I'm not sure why you thought Grierson would be overrun there, he would simply avoid since he passed his leader loss check. There are no instances where cav prevents other forces from avoiding in this game. It only prevents cav screen from being in effect. Grierson avoids to 5213
847 9/9/2019 7:39:00 PM Turn 12 Confederate Message Lee is attacking Norfolk. Combat chart says o1 so you need 1 column shift to avoid overrun which the woods give you so I take it a normal battle happens?

Does the AoJ have an interception option into Norfolk from Ft. Monroe?
