107 1/18/2020 4:50:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message FI so early is demoralizing for USA, but this is rare outlier.
You have good play tactics, just need to remember battle odds for small v medium vs large battles, and factor in intercept situation.

Take care, Nick

104 1/17/2020 5:44:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #82: 3 / Foreign Intervention - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player can play this card as an EC when Confederate SW is 110+. If this is the last card in a players hand or the second to last and the player holds the Emancipation Proclamation, if the condition is met, it must be played as an EC, if not it can be played as an OC. EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3. Union SW reduced by 10. Remove from deck if event is played. If card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at end of the Strategy Phase.
