383 11/12/2019 3:14:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message from which hex are you entering Bowling Green? I may want to attempt avoid battle.
382 11/12/2019 3:08:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message I was not considering the move from 2238 to 2139 as a mountain hex side as the artwork doesn't match the TEC picture of a mountain hex side. I can go either way. If it is a mountain hex side then I stop at Covington instead of Warm Springs. I'm good with that, too.

358 11/11/2019 10:37:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message I played the TM card to get an extra move (action point) for the TM theater.

Let me know if you think I need to redo something there.
357 11/11/2019 10:34:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message On the Amphibious Assault It looks like I'm okay unless I'm not understanding something. I played the TM card to get an extra move.

(20.5.6) Union Amphibious Assaults: The only time the Union
player needs a Naval or “Any” Special Action Card for an Amphibious
Assault in the Basic Game is when he is attacking a Fort
or Coastal Fort. All other Union Amphibious Assaults (vs. SPs,
Entrenchments, vacant enemy ports, Islands, etc.) can also be initiated
with a Naval Transport (20.3) activation. All Confederate
Amphibious Assaults in the Basic Game require an “Any” Card.


356 11/11/2019 10:14:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message Regarding Sumner, that'd be great if he could have an LOC.

Regarding Brashea and amphibious assault, I'm still a bit confused. I'll relook at the basic game rules again.
