222 3/24/2020 3:49:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I think you may have moved the Wheeler brigade into the wrong army.

Army of the West gained 1 SP in reinforcements only (log entry 185), no addition from strategic rail.

So, after this battle, Army of the West and 5 SPs convert Grafton

213 3/23/2020 1:35:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Please redraw another card.

While it is true that there are four Strategy Boards, the fact of the matter is that this specific card should already be in the discard pile. If we were to play on as if this were one of the other two remaining cards in the deck, then we would still need to track the two remaining cards such that a fifth occurrence of a Strategy Board does not occur before a reshuffle. Might as well just do it now rather than adding more tracking.

Thank You
212 3/23/2020 9:03:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message ...but in case you insist, I can cancel my move, discard it and draw a replacement card.

It doesn't matter to me.
211 3/23/2020 9:00:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message You mean "strategy board"?

There are 4 or 5 copies of that card in the deck (like campaigns).

I suggest we continue.
210 3/23/2020 8:28:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I just verified that we didn't previously replay any of the other Summer 1861 cards
209 3/23/2020 8:25:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message I see the problem. We also had to track the Summer 1861 cards cause the corrective reshuffle didn't occur until the end of that turn, not the beginning.

These are the Summer 1862 cards:

47: 3 / CSA Recognizes KY, MO, MD and DE
122: 3 / Crisis in the West

193 3/14/2020 6:05:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Were you not able to step through my file? If it looks old, it's cause it starts from the beginning of Summer 1862.

Your file is missing an SP on each side.

You dropped off 2 SPs in Winchester in the first turn (log 16) and then railed 1 out last spring (log 127). So, there should still be 1 as there has been no further activity in Winchester.

At the end of Spring 1862 strategic rail, there was 1 SP in Columbus, Ga (log 133). Add in one reinforcement (log 185), so there should be 2 SPs even though I forgot to indicate it there.

I count total SPs as 50 Union, 37 Confederate
192 3/11/2020 1:57:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message My condolences Roderick.
