181 10/27/2019 11:09:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Hey Mike,
I think the admin will remove it...
180 10/27/2019 1:13:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message I've tried to end this game but cannot. Can you?
179 10/9/2019 10:47:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Thank you for the game! It was quite enjoyable. I did feel fortunate to get so many blockade cards.

I look forward to playing you again in the future! All the best. - Mike
178 10/9/2019 12:10:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Mike,
No need to. With Blockade at 3 I had to take a lot of chances. With you even having a 3 I would have conceded. With a Major we can definitely call this one a big Union victory. Please let James know, and best of luck in the finals!

161 10/7/2019 12:45:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #101: 3 / Chickamauga
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.

160 10/6/2019 10:25:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Great, will get a card up in AM...
159 10/6/2019 10:05:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Looks like he comes back in three turns. Your turn.
158 10/6/2019 7:04:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Iíll look at more rules and we can ask James. We can keep going though since Van Dorn is out of play for at least three turns in any case
157 10/6/2019 6:27:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Sorry, the Iíve should be he...
156 10/6/2019 6:26:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Understood, but I donít think a General can be killed in battle unless somebody rolled a 10. I believe the rule you cited does not say Iíve dies if the brigade is eliminated. Do you want to ask James about this?
155 10/6/2019 5:12:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Under 5.67

B. Van Dorn

Van Dorn has an optional Cavalry Brigade
counter. Any time Van Dorn is activated
and moves with only 1 SP, the Confederate
player, at his discretion, can replace Van Dorn with his Cavalry
Brigade piece. Once designated a Cavalry General he remains one
for the remainder of the game and follows all rules for Cavalry
Brigades. Exception: If he is killed, he is permanently removed
from play, he does not come back into play like other Cavalry
Generals and has no optional replacement cavalry general.
154 10/6/2019 4:37:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Why did Van Dorn die. I get that the brigade is eliminated, but donít CSA Cavalry Generals come back in 3 turns (5.54)?
153 10/6/2019 4:32:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message 1*/1 USA victory

120 9/30/2019 4:01:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Ok, Franklin has n2. Thanks for helping figure out the situation
119 9/30/2019 11:25:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Last thing on Strasburg I can find is #45 when 2 SP were there. That would mean
I actually attacked there with 3:1, so could have kept moving if all this is correct. I donít think we can go back in time to deal with that though. Iíll try to be more careful going forward. Please let me know on the SP count (n2 in Franklin).
118 9/30/2019 11:17:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message OK, I think I found my mistake. When I attacked Strasburg I thought you had 4 SP there when you actually had only 2. In that case no one retreated to Franklin, and at the end of the turn you should have had only 2 SPís there (so no attrition). Can you confirm that?
117 9/29/2019 11:57:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message See move #79 for Winchester 2 SPs
116 9/29/2019 11:57:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Here are discrepancies I see.

My map has me at 98- (This is wrong. I just adjusted the SW incorrectly). USA should be at 99-

You only have me with 6 forts available (I should have 7 since Manassas comes back)

I have 2 SP in Winchester and a PC marker there.
115 9/29/2019 10:04:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Mike,
Go to Markers, then neutral markers. It looks like a little triangle, but if you click on it you can see a blank square. Then just drag it where you want it.
114 9/29/2019 9:52:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message I agree with everything else.

Reinforcements -

113 9/29/2019 9:49:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Also, I have Dover at n0
112 9/29/2019 9:46:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message USA also gets a PC in Winchester.

Do you know how to remove PC's in Vassal? It only lets me flip them to one side or another.

107 9/29/2019 3:16:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Yes, let's get our maps all lined up! I've been playing a fair bit away from my computer so that makes things difficult.
106 9/29/2019 1:06:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message So, Franklin is 4, and Frederick is 5.
We should swap maps after the turn, cause I was a mess over here...
105 9/29/2019 1:04:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Nope, sorry, you are correct. I got mixed up with Frederick and Fredericksburg.

The Union player may either increase the Blockade Level by one or increase the Amphibious Assault modifier by two.

Message from Union:

102 9/29/2019 12:34:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message I believe AoP should be at n5 since there were 5 in Manassas to start and they retreated to Fredrick with 2.

Troops from Strasburg retreat to Franklin. n4
101 9/28/2019 10:35:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Correct, that was less than 2:1, so move ends with combat.
100 9/28/2019 4:08:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Ah, I missed the 2 sp in Manassas.

I believe your turn ends since the attack was n7 v n4 so not 2-1
