48 8/19/2019 12:41:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #111: 2 / Wilsonís Raid
Union may place two Union PC markers in any spaces within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single Union cavalry brigade. The four space range CAN be traced through Northeast Alabama. These PC Markers (in contravention of rule 11.3D), CAN be placed in blockade runner ports/ and or resource spaces devoid of Confederate SPs or forts (but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes), resulting in their immediate destruction. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
Let's give Johnny Pope his own command. -2 SW, 6 SPs. It's the army of the Cumberland.

BTY.
47 8/19/2019 12:12:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message your win rate against me, especially as the South suggests you make the right call most of the time.
46 8/19/2019 12:00:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Hoh, I dont think I always know when its more advantageous to give up troops to gain SW. However I'm certain that I often make these overaggressive yolo-moves but at least they usually stir up reaction from the opponent. And sometimes they even work.
45 8/19/2019 11:52:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message hmmm, who to put in charge of a new army out West.
44 8/19/2019 11:31:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message and fretting over the north's massive manpower advantage.
43 8/19/2019 11:31:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message that is true...i didn't mean to imply that it was a bad decision hoping for a lucky break to make it all possible, losing 4 SPs to cause me to lose an SP and net 10 SW change is certainly a good trade and there ewas always the chance that you could negate me taking out your troops too.

one thing you are clearly better at than me is knowing when to sacrifice SPs as the South to buff the SW totals...i tend to be too timid and miserly since I'm always looking at the SP discrepancy.
42 8/19/2019 2:39:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Was gambling I'd get either a campaign card or interruption card. Would have traded anyway those few pesky SPs for a Raid though.
41 8/19/2019 2:34:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message Gambled that you would get a minor campaign to save those rebel divisions and fortune smiled upon your boldness.

The ghost of Julius Caesar applauds you from hades. Will move tomorrow as I just shut down computer
40 8/19/2019 2:23:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #121: 3 / Minor Campaign

22 8/18/2019 1:44:00 AM Spring 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 Union:
Medium battle. realizing now that while this gives me a better chance to kill JJ, I should have probably gone 4-1 for small battle. But then there is even better chance that i lose 1-1 and have to halt so maybe this is best.

US: +4 force +1 McDowell

CSA: +2 JJ
10 8/15/2019 1:46:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message He will die fighting. Back to you

8 8/15/2019 1:43:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #27: 3 / Choctaw Indians
Confederate randomly removes one strategy card from the Union playerís hand, which is discarded.

Message from Union:
and i have one of your discard events.

Let's try being more aggressive. AOP activates and leaves 1 SP behind, n4. M1-Frederick and drop 1, n2 there and n3 w/AOP. M2-Harper's Ferry and pu2, n5. M3-Attack JJ in Winchester! I will kick it over to you to see if you have a response card or want to attempt a retreat. I'm hoping to not replay 1st Manassas in the Valley.
7 8/15/2019 1:39:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message countering to defend against your favorite opening move as the Union I see ;)

Sorry for delay, I thought I would be able to play while in Iowa visiting my family for a quick weekend trip to help them clear out a bunhc of old family stuff and machinery (selling the family farm that has been in our ancestry for over 100 years to a distant relative). but I was unable to find time for games. I will make a reply to your email soon as well...glad to hear you are still in the tournament and have some free time from paternity leave.
