219 9/18/2020 10:09:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Hi Mark:

We have been fine from a fire perspective. The smoke was pretty bad for about a week but the rains finally came on Friday.

We are actually headed out on a trip to the Oregon Coast, a little further south than you went, Coos Bay area on Tuesday. 3 days there and then a couple of days over in the Bend Oregon area.

Missoula is where I grew up and went to high school. I went to college in Bozeman which is about 200 miles further east on I-90 and then moved out to Seattle in 1988 to work for Boeing.

The RV trip sounds cool. How long of a trip was it?
218 9/18/2020 7:05:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Hi Dave,

No worries at all. I just got back from some vacationing, including into your neck of the woods. Peggy and I tried RVing for the first time, and went to Olympic park, staying at Sol Duc while there. We traveled down to Seaside and Cannon Beach, but due to fires kind of cut the time short and headed back via Coeur d'Alene, Missoula, and come home through Idaho.

Man I hope you are doing OK with all the smoke about, and there is no danger to you from the wildfires.

my best,
Mark
217 9/9/2020 10:44:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Just letting you know that I am alive. Busy end of summer. Should get a move out by friday. Just an update. Hope things are going well for you and your family.

Confederate can remove two Union PC Markers in Virginia within 2 spaces of Winchester, VA. The spaces may contain Union generals, SPs or forts.

Message from Union:
Thanks for the correction Dave.

I'll play my Card 2 to build fort in Bloomington
215 8/23/2020 9:53:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message I can't continue as I did not have 2X your SP's to start the battle. 5.73 I think you have 4 SP's left not 3. 7-3=4. Over to you for the next card.

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.

207 8/15/2020 11:06:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Hi Dave,

Sounds wonderful to be a Slacker... :-)

No rush at all. I am appreciative of the lazy pace of our game. I have way too many things that are still time pressures.

I will go ahead and suffer the 2SW hit, thanks for the reminder.

my best,
Mark
206 8/15/2020 9:00:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Just looking at your move now. Slacker that I am. LOL Busy summer with the new place and playing golf in retirement. You do lose an additional 2SW for promoting Hooker over any number of union stud generals who have a higher political rating. I assume that is ok. That would drop you from 77- to 75-. 5-61 third bullet.

I will wait until tomorrow to make a move.
205 8/10/2020 1:49:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #41: 2 / Gov. Isham Harris, Tennessee Confederate
Confederate immediately places two SPs in any friendly controlled space in Tennessee with a LOC (both SPs are placed in the same space). SPs may not be placed in Pro-Union spaces or one occupied by Union SPs or a fort.

Message from Union:

Would have loved to save this for really the West, but Lee and the gang are just a problem!
204 8/10/2020 1:44:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message My bad! I was confused. You referenced Jackson, and I thought you were talking Stuart.
203 8/9/2020 8:01:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Hi Dave,

I am confused why Stuart would come back? I think he died in #180? I am probably missing a rule?

193 7/26/2020 3:06:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message LOL; I get 1 SP for the west gulf and that's it. I also lost 6 SW total. 83- to 77-. Talk about crap luck.

I will place it at NO LA

Over to you for SM.

I am on track to be the first person ever lose a game when taking Wash DC. I am terrible and unlucky at this game. A bad combination.

189 7/25/2020 11:26:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message The new National Capital is naturally in Springfield, IL (as far from Lee as I could go...)
188 7/25/2020 6:47:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Ok first thing is you have to place your capital in a new space. 11.23 I assume you will choose one of the locations listed so you don't lose another 10SW.

In the political phase DC becomes confederate controlled. Union gets a control marker at Ft Morgan. That is all I see.

Next is attrition.

Confederate:
AoT minus 1 now N=3
Richmond minus 1. N=3
AoNV minus 2. N=7

Union
Cairo -1 N=5
AoT -1 N=4
AoC -1 N=4
Balitmore -1 N=2
AoP -2 N=9

Since AoP does not have a LOC it must forage. IE a 2nd attrition phase. -2 SP N=7

You are now up for reinforcements.

Rather than the 8 you would have gotten for DC you get 4 in spaces in PA, DE, or NJ. See 10.3

New file is up.
187 7/22/2020 7:44:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Sounds good Dave. Just did not want to move on until you had a chance to check and make sure I did everything right... :-)

182 7/19/2020 2:17:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Stuart dies. Where are you retreating your 3SP's to? I will assume DC?

5th MP for me is converting Fredrick MD.

176 7/18/2020 10:05:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #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.

Message from Confederate:

169 7/13/2020 10:08:00 AM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Confederate:
Something that you don't want to do and the big gochta in the deck. AOP marches towards Richmond.

I am NOT going to intercept at Hanover and will accept battle there.

I am heading out on a short trip this week and won't have computer access until Friday.

Hi Dave,
I sent the Fort to the turn track (see Turn 5).
I think it goes back in your pool like a reinforcement.
128 6/15/2020 10:40:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Net 9 vs Net 4. 2/1 for the confederates

Confed AoT drops from 7 to 6
Union AoT drops from 6 to 4 and retreats. I will assume Louisville but you can change it if you wish. Union fort is removed but I don't get a PW bump like the union does for taking my forts.

I just noticed that you deleted my fort when you took Manassas. There is a place for forts in the bottom right hand corner as there are limits to how many each can have. I should have 3 versus 2. We will need to keep track of that.

I will let you do the end of turn stuff and placement of your reinforcement for next turn.

DR1 Confed +5
DR2 Union +2
126 6/15/2020 10:33:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #62: 2 / Financial Crisis
Union SW is reduced by two.

Message from Confederate:
Activate AoT at Paducah. Leave 2 SP's behind with Wheeler. 1 becomes a cav sp and the other INF.

1)Dover
2) Clarksville
3) Nashville (Pick up 1 SP) AoT=4
4) Clarksville (Drop 1 SP) AoT=3
5) Bowling Green (Pick up 4 SP's here) AoT=7
6) Lebanon

Since you can't retreat due to your fine general Mr Banks and you are out of cards I will go ahead and roll the combat. I am +5 and you are +2 in a medium battle.
125 6/15/2020 1:58:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message I have indeed been very blessed with 3 cards... must be the game luring me in... :-)

Thought about chasing Johnston, but there is a small chance AoP would get stuck in Fredricksburg, and I imagaine that would be bad. Army of Potomac will count their blessings, and stop in Manassas.

Confed Fort sent to Turn Track
+1 Union SW to 110.
-1 Confed SW to 85.
124 6/14/2020 2:08:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Make that 11 for AOP. You really need to buy some lottery tickets. That is the most 3 cards I have ever seen the union draw in 4 turns. LOL
123 6/14/2020 2:02:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message One for the Union. 2/1; AOP is now 10. 1SP and Johnston fall back to Fredricksburg. You and continue movement. No file from me.

121 6/14/2020 1:19:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #81: 3 / Emancipation Proclamation - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player must play this card as an EC on the Strategy Round immediately following a Union large or medium battle victory. Confederate loses 10 SW and 3 SPs (his choice). Union loses 5 SW. Flip GT marker to its Emancipation Proclamation side. Card must be the last one played by a player at which time it can be played as an OC card. If the play of this card as an OC results in a battle victory, there is no Emancipation Proclamation Remove from deck if event is played. If this card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at the end of the Strategy Phase.

Message from Union:
Well, did my best to get this played, but could not.

U7
A little late, but time for 1st Bull Run.

McDowell and the AoP to Manassas with all but 1 SP
You have a funky intercept of some kind?
120 6/13/2020 3:09:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #76: 2 / Great Sioux Uprising
Remove one Union commanding general at no SW penalty. Penalties for promoting a general with a lower political value still apply. OR remove ANY Union non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
Activate AoNV at Manassas with 7SP's. Leave 3 SP's at Manassas AoNV=4

1) Culpepeer (Pick up J Johnston)
2) Manassas (Drop J Johnston)
3) Culpepper
4) Gordonsville
5) Charlottesville (Drop 2SP's and Smith)
6) Gordonsville with 2SP's left in the army
