36 1/26/2020 5:43:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message not sure what to tell you
I'm using module v2.02, so it's almost assuredly older than the version you just downloaded
35 1/26/2020 2:57:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message do you mean Somerset?

I used to right click to change the strength of units... now I can'T. How do you do it?
31 1/26/2020 4:14:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Hah! I felt the revolt! :-)

Confederate may place a friendly PC marker in Baltimore, MD, if the space is vacant.

29 1/25/2020 10:51:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #46: 1 / Pro Union Secessionist in Tennessee
Union receives two PC markers in any Pro-Union space in Tennessee free of Confederate SPs and forts.

28 1/24/2020 4:00:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message confirm move of 1 SP from Little Rock to Paducah
27 1/24/2020 1:41:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #104: 1 / Big Bethel
Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if they were led by a General. This move is a Corps move and may enter enemy controlled spaces because the SPs are moving as if they are led by a general.

Message from Confederate:
as event

activate the SP in Little Rock as a corps move

I don't have the map in front of me, but I believe it is six spaces from Little Rock to Dover, in which case Louisville is more than eight spaces away.

If I'm mistaken, then move to Louisville. But, if Louisville is too far, move to Paducah
26 1/24/2020 8:23:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #55: 1 / CSS Tennessee
Confederate may place one Ironclad in a controlled port or coastal fort space.

Message from Union:

25 1/24/2020 4:45:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Beauregard ends move in Richmond with 2 SPs
24 1/24/2020 4:21:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message No interrupt.

You can ask each time if you want to but it is customary in PBEM play that you formulate your play and then enemy declares if he wants to interrupt.
23 1/23/2020 2:02:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message actually, I have to retreat first
Beauregard and 1 SP retreats to Fredericksburg

so, first move is to Hanover
Mud? Empty Haversacks?
22 1/23/2020 1:12:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate 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 Confederate:
as ops
activate Beauregard (and all)

first move is to Fredericksburg

Mud March? Empty Haversacks?
21 1/23/2020 1:10:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message my apologies
I rolled for two battles (one in another game), and in the other game, there's a fort.

As for the "1/3," I typed the result wrong, though I did remove 2 of Beauregard's SPs on my board

Confirm 2/1 as the correct result with Beauregard's proper +1
20 1/23/2020 12:45:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message First the battle result is 2-1 Union Medium Battle Victory. (Beau's drm is +1 not +3)

AOP n3 is in Manassas.

Beau n1 must retreat.

Secondly I use Vassal but I find it a burden and game slower to exchange files ... unless we need it.
19 1/23/2020 12:39:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message again, I will ask if you use Vassal or Cyberboard or neither
18 1/23/2020 12:37:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message 1/3

15 1/23/2020 10:12:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Intercept decision comes before the avoid battle decision ... which makes the practice largely inapplicable.
14 1/22/2020 10:57:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Johnston to the turn track
McDowell has four movement remaining

to facilitate game play, feel free to roll "my" dice including any possible avoid attempts (but not interceptions, of course)

5 1/18/2020 3:19:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message ok, fair enough

well, I'm on the west coast (GMT - 8) and a night owl, so having played my share of European opponents, I guessed it was morning where you are :-)

Do you use any game aids like Vassal or Cyberboard? With or without Dropbox?
4 1/18/2020 9:11:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Depends on which side of the pond you are! :-)

... I am in Brussels Belgium.

I havent seen any sign either but it appears others have started already.
3 1/18/2020 8:45:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Hi Mustafa,

So, based on when you sent this, is it reasonable to guess that you're across the pond?

Should we start? I haven't seen a go-ahead from Michael or James.
2 1/18/2020 5:53:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Have a nice game Roderick.
