2. Determine the number of SPs the Confederate player receives
using the following formula:

Total BPs from:
Resource Hexes [96] +
Arsenals [5] +
Border State Recruits [KY 3] +

Blockade Running, minus ()
NoAtl 2+1 = 3 = [4]
SoAtl 6 + 5 = 11 = [10]
GulfCoast 7 + 5 = 12 = [10] = [128]

minus ()
the current Maintenance Value [-10] = total of 118.

Build 1 SP for every 10 BPs (fractions of 10
are lost).

118 / 10 = 11 SPs

Place 1 SP in the Trans-Mississippi Theater and then
divide the remainder as evenly as possible between the Eastern
and the Western Theaters. Odd-numbered SPs go to the East.

====================
TM = 1

359 8/11/2020 12:27:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message OH SHOOT!!! We were having so much fun there with General Price, that I forgot about van Dorn.

356 8/11/2020 12:20:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Well it doesn't make any difference but for the future, the maneuver says it uses ALL the modifiers that interception uses except two things. So I'm thinking for the second hex of maneuver had I done that, I'd also have had an additional +2 DRM for having already maneuvered successfully. What do you think?
355 8/11/2020 12:15:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message Thought we'd liven things up a bit....
