154 4/7/2020 9:44:00 PM Fall 1861 Moderator Message In order to get all Pbem games done on a timely schedule, the website rule of 1+ week of no communication is enforced. I have been very lenient in allowing players to play on due to any number of reasons, as long as you communicate with your opponent.

Sorry Barry, you have not check in for over 2 weeks. At this rate, you guys cannot finish at the new deadline of next week, the 14th. So I will rule CSA forfeits this game.

In the future, in any game you play, please let your opponent know the delay. Just one simple sentence can soothe and ease the misunderstanding.
153 4/6/2020 12:20:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message You are a delight
152 4/5/2020 10:32:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message You did not put in a moved for 2 weeks without notification. I previously sent an e-mail to the GM requesting the website rules of 1 week no move = forfeit be enforced.
151 4/5/2020 10:27:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 1 / Detached Cavalry
Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Army’s Commanding General’s battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry general’s battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

150 4/5/2020 9:22:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message You are supposed to put in a move once a day. If there is a problem (sorry about your cat - use vassal) you are supposed to communicate it to your opponent in a timely manner. I already sent an e-mail to the GM requesting you forfeit this game as the website states if an opponent fails to put in a move within a week the game is forfeit.
