251 4/1/2020 8:14:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Union:
Union fort in Columbus, KY.
250 4/1/2020 8:10:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Correct: USA is now 5. Bragg+Cav+5 in Goldsboro.

You made a mistake in the battle, but it doesn't change anything--just teaching. Cav only matters for battle DRMs when it's two armies fighting. When Cav is with a corps, it adds to interception/avoid rolls, but not to battle.


249 3/29/2020 5:21:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message New bern 1/1

USA now 5

Bragg +4 retreat to Goldsboro <5+cav>

USA Rosecrans +1, +2 fort,-2 no cav int. Net +1
247 3/29/2020 5:17:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Ok leaving 1 in Goldboro then
246 3/29/2020 4:14:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Clarification: Bragg can only carry 6 with him. So 1SP + Cav + picking up 5 SP in Goldsboro is 7.

So you'll have to leave 1 SP in Goldsboro and attack with 6, or leave the Cav in Hanover. Let me know which.

Either way, I will stand and fight.
245 3/25/2020 8:50:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #42: 2 / Kentucky Anarchy
Remove up to three enemy PC markers in Kentucky. You must also remove one of your own PC markers from the state if you have any there. Removal of a PC marker makes a space neutral. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:

withdraw or fight ?
244 3/25/2020 7:53:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message We're both wrong. It's 4+4=8.

AotC had 9 in 195, left 2 behind and moved on Memphis with 7, lost 3, so 4.

Then Pope brought 4, so it's at 8.
243 3/25/2020 6:26:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Didn't the AotC only have 3SP because of losing 3 in the previous battle ?
242 3/25/2020 6:00:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #58: 2 / Admiral Porter
Union may make a naval move with up to three SPs plus one general. If an amphibious assault occurs, you receive an additional +2 DRM. Add +2DRM to any Running the Guns die roll.

Message from Union:

232 3/18/2020 8:32:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Very well. I assume you do not want to intercept (it does you no good).
231 3/18/2020 1:27:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message well by golly I guesse so....

226 3/10/2020 7:20:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #74: 2 / Political Crisis
The Union player may remove or demote one Union general for no SW cost. The cost for promoting a general with a lower political value still applies. OR remove ANY Union non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game.

Message from Union:
Activate the Army of the Cumberland.

Leave 2 SP in Cairo.

March to Paducah.

pause to see: Pemberton could intercept on a 1.
225 3/9/2020 9:15:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #102: 3 / First Manassas
Confederate Player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (5 space maximum) 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. OR play this card as an automatic 2 space interception. Intervening space must be friendly controlled and free of enemy SPs. The intervening space may be the one just exited by the moving enemy force. No Generals or SPs may be picked up or dropped off during the intercept.

Message from Confederate:

219 3/2/2020 7:20:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #50: 1 / CSS Sumter, Commerce Raider
Union SW reduced by one.

Message from Union:
Pope hastily builds a fort in Bloomington.
218 3/2/2020 7:19:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message So, for the record, you having converted Bowling Green to CSA means that Lebanon and Louisville also converted to CSA at the end of last turn.
217 3/2/2020 6:51:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message OK, no problem then.

We should have caught this earlier...if OOS Lee should also not have got strat moves or new generals.

Will play ASAP.
216 3/1/2020 11:00:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message The below references #178

I had Bowling Green converted on my map and that's the reason I dropped a guy off to avoid atrition....... you can see this was my obvious plan all along.
215 3/1/2020 10:59:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I see what happened......

When the AOT moved to Louisville, I dropped a guy in Lebanon KY and convert Bowling Green on my map with the extra movement points I had available I simply forgot to put that into the log.
214 3/1/2020 7:49:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message No, you still have to be in supply to build a fort. Lee is not in supply. USA markers in Bowling Green and Somerset block his supply lines.
213 3/1/2020 7:12:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 3 / Clara Barton
Union immediately adds three SPs due to improved sanitary conditions. Place in any space (friendly controlled or not) that already contains a Union SP and has a LOC, no more than one per space.

Message from Confederate:
In that case..........

Louisville gets a Fort
212 3/1/2020 7:11:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Return Strategy card to hand #64: 1 / USS Kearsarge sinks USS Alabama

Message from Confederate:
211 3/1/2020 7:11:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I misread that rule...... As the Union you can do it with a 1,2 or 3. the CSA must have a 3.

Now I see it :-)
210 3/1/2020 3:39:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Nope.

1. It takes a 3 card for the CSA to build a fort.
2. You must have an LOC to build a fort. USA controls both Bowling Green and Somerset, so you have no LOC.
209 2/26/2020 9:49:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #64: 1 / USS Kearsarge sinks USS Alabama

199 2/17/2020 8:44:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message well I guess it does, it says 1 each...... I was reading the highlighted 2SP. Of course you are correct !

196 2/17/2020 3:31:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I was checking on the bottom of the Map and its says Boarder states give CSA 2SP for Kentucky or Missouri if controlled.

191 2/14/2020 8:38:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message You have to redo all of your reinforcements. It's 1 SP per state for the first nine CSA reinforcements.

See also previous comment about Missouri.

Once you get to Strat Moves, you can move some guys around, but not all of them since you only get 7 strat moves.
190 2/14/2020 8:36:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message You only get 1 bonus SP in Missouri--it's one each for MO and KY.

6 to Bloomington, now 6.
4 to Cairo, AotC now 8.

To you for reinforcements.
185 2/13/2020 8:44:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message That changes attrition to:

Attrition:
USA attrition
AotP -1 to 5.
AotC -1 to 4.
St. Louis -1 to 3.
Cincinnati -1 to 5.
New Bern -1 to 2.

CSA attrition:

None in Manassas, which is now ASJ+Beau+1+StuartCav
184 2/13/2020 8:42:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Your AoT forces now are spread out as:

Polk+1+MorganCav in Nashville.
AoT in Louisville with Van Dorn (he's second in command and has to stay with the army) + 2 + ForrestCav.
1SP in Lebanon.
183 2/13/2020 8:40:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message OK, you were right, there were 6 total in AoT Nashville: 4 inf SP +2 cav brigades.

So now you have AoT with 2 INF SP and Forrest's cav in Louisville.
182 2/13/2020 8:35:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Manassas move is correct.
181 2/13/2020 8:30:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message This is where cav in armies gets confusing.

Before attrition, you had 5 in the AoT, including Morgan and Forrest's cav--so 3 inf and 2 cav.

So if you drop 2 in Nashville, it's 1SP + JJ + Polk +Morgan's Cav.

Lee takes 3, one of which is Forrest's Cav, so 2 SP of Inf + Morgan. Then you drop off 1 SP in Louisville, so Lee has 1SP and Forrest's cav.

And what happened to Van Dorn, who was also in Nashville, yes?
180 2/13/2020 1:28:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Also Wheeler now a Cav in Manassas goes with Bragg

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.
