61 7/18/2020 12:46:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Attrition

Richmond loses 1, now 3+Cav.
AotP loses 2, now 7.
60 7/18/2020 12:44:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Not quite.

One step at a time.

Political control:

Somerset and Bowling Green KY go Union.
Grafton and Franklin WV go Union.
Staunton, Strasburg, and Winchester VA go Union.

KY goes Union. Union gains 10SW + 2SW for change of fortune, so +12=107+
WV goes Union. Union gains 5SW, so 112+.

There's no SW change for the Shenandoah spaces. They count as 2 spaces for conquering VA, and I can't use them as supply spaces anymore.
59 7/17/2020 11:46:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #108: 2 / Richmond Bread Riots

Message from Union:
Pittsburgh PA

Pope +6 activated

Dropping of SF in Grafton WV,Franklin WV, Staunton VA, Strasburg VA

Pope +2 end up in Winchester VA


*END of Turn*

All those spaces above become Union controlled and CSA losses 6SW for losing the Shenandoah Valley ?

Also the Union gains West, 'By God" Virginia and Kentucky for 15 SW ?

Confirm ?

I must say, so far I am feeling slightly more confident this game......

49 7/14/2020 9:00:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Technically, you have to move Buell first. Burnside is 2nd in command of AotP, so he can't leave until there is someone there of equal or higher rank to become 2nd in command.

But it's just a matter of order, since you moved Buell three latter. so no need to change your turn. Just making sure you know the rule.

37 7/13/2020 11:56:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #8: 1 / 3 Cigars
Play this card to make an automatic one or two space interception. Intervening space must be friendly controlled and free of enemy SPs. The intervening space may be the one just exited by the moving enemy force. No Generals or SPs may be picked up or dropped off during intercept.

Message from Confederate:
J Johnston +1 1 SP will automatically make a 2-space interception per the card.

J Johnston becomes the commander because of higher rank. He is +2, and the interception is +2, so the confederate force is now 7SP at +4.
