108 1/26/2020 11:21:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I didn't say I was using Stonewall that must be declared when I attack. I am saving him for an Important attack although in hinesight since I was unlikely to have lose more than 1 SP I probably should have used him.
107 1/26/2020 11:18:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message JJ +1 on Offense +2 defense
Stuart +2
and any other General would be a +1 = +4
I would have been a +5 If defending
106 1/26/2020 7:35:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message A couple of comments on that last battle
1. Why did you not have a +5 modifier (+1 for Stonewall)?
2. I also have Burnside in AoP (post 64), so you were correct in post 91 that I should have had +1 (although it doesn't matter for the result)
105 1/25/2020 11:07:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I do not Campaign

22 1/20/2020 7:39:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message The attack can roll subject to the understanding that if he does so before the opponent has a chance to respond the opponent could play a card that could cancel of effect the battle. That would be rare as it you take a card form your hand.
21 1/20/2020 7:04:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Wow. I hope that die roll is a sign of things to come!

I've not played this on ACTS before. How do we do battle die rolls? (In other games I've played, the defender rolls the die for both.)

11 1/18/2020 8:53:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
May not be discarded by the Union. Union must use this card as an OC. If at the conclusion of movement, a Union SP is not on or adjacent to Grand Ecore, LA, then the Union loses 5 SW points. If a Union SP is in one of the objective spaces then a Union PC marker can immediately be placed to convert the space or spaces. Remove from deck if Union plays card.

Message from Union:
Army of Potomac will spend 1 movement point to control Manassas, will move to Acquia Creek, leave an SP and move across to Wilderness, spend a movement to control it, then move back to Fredericksburg. 7VP in AoP. Union SW down to 95.
