486 3/29/2021 9:28:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Message Since it would have taken days to do that, my thought was, have a single roll, since the result was vastly likely to be no intercept, and then allow that roll to apply to the space of my opponents choice.
485 3/29/2021 9:02:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Message What I was attempting to communicate was that I was making a single roll but would allow the results to apply to any of the legal intercept spaces
484 3/29/2021 1:28:00 AM Fall 1863 Moderator Message As much as it pains me to say it, on a technicality we must make some adjustments here.
It was the Confederate player's choice whether to call an interception at Bowling Green or at Clarksville. The Union player rolled the Bowling Green intercept without the Confederate player's consent.

Since there were two choices of where to try the intercept, and since the Confederate player was denied the choice, it is lawful for the Confederate player to make the choice first on Bowling Green, then (if not attempt there) to opt to try to intercept at Clarksville.

I am open to objection.
