283 12/26/2020 10:22:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Thanks for those post-game thoughts! Quite helpful. Definitely makes sense that the effort in the West was less effective than some progress in the East would've been. I think I got a bit starstruck by all the nice cards and the wide-open West.

Indeed, Fred underestimates his skills :D

And yep, thanks for letting GM know. I'm more available in January than afterward, but also totally fine with playing it whenever.

Happy holidays to you and yours as well!
282 12/26/2020 8:32:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message regardless, really impressed with your play, esp since I don't know your game play... but I guess your buddy Fred must have taught you a few moves...

not sure how/when the GM wants to do the 2nd round, but I'll let him know...

Happy Holidays, Max.
281 12/26/2020 8:24:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message actually, you did very well early on, squeezing every corner of the Confederacy... I had no answer against all those Campaigns and 3-Ops...

but you went a bit overboard ... if you have used a few of those Ops to say, grab WVa, then you may have establish a nice bridgehead on the CSA flank... so now, you can send a USA force deep behind CSA to cut off its LOC.

or use the Ops to start pressing against N Va... to create a buffer zone so when Lee arrives, AOP has a bit of space to move and fortify.
280 12/26/2020 8:18:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Hey, no reason to apologize, I've been trying to solve the problem too! I cut my teeth on chess, problems are great
279 12/26/2020 8:18:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Final SW for completeness:

Union: 68(-) -30 -15 = 23(-)
CSA: 62(-) +15 (+2) = 79(+)
278 12/26/2020 8:17:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message so you're right in that I can get DC and raid PA, DE, and MD! :-) ... just have to think a bit on the permutations.

sorry, didn't mean to pile on so hard.. but I like to solve this type of "problem"


277 12/26/2020 8:17:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Indeed, that's elegant! Well, good game, I enjoyed quite a bit, and learned a lot, especially about use of small battles and of CSA force concentration in the early game

I'm down to start our second game whenever you want in the new year.
276 12/26/2020 8:14:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message 2nd move,
Bragg and 3 sp,
1. pick up 1 in Dover
2. attack Wilm... 1/1 result;
3-4. drop 1 in DC
5-6. drop 1 in York
7-8. end in Lewistown
275 12/26/2020 8:11:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #121: 3 / Minor Campaign
Conduct up to two moves or conduct one special army-size naval move. No SP, general, or army marker may be moved twice with the same campaign card. You must move a different force each move.

Message from Confederate:
by using the DE reinf card, I can do this more elegantly...

1st move;
leave Stonewall and Wheeler behind,
AONV [3]
1-2. attack Baltimore... 1/1 result;
3. convert
4-5. convert Annapolis
6. AONV [2] attack DC

1/1 result; DC holds... AONV [1] retreat back.
274 12/26/2020 8:07:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Yes, certainly rare to voluntarily kill a cav brigade SP :D But of course worth it periodically!
273 12/26/2020 8:06:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message >>>my thought was to go through Baltimore and take MD while attacking DC, then on the next card move through DC and also put a SP in York, cutting off LOC to Gettysburg

yes, that would work! ... just need to sacrifice a Cav brigade ...

AONV [4] but with 2 cav brig... so I was thinking how to do this and can't find a suitable solution... but if I sacrifice a Cav brigade in the attack on DC, then I can do as you said.

272 12/26/2020 8:01:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message can't you get DC and raid PA, DE, and MD, even if one of your cards is a 1-op?

how to raid PA/DE when you have SP in place, and AONV n4... not enough SP to go around
271 12/26/2020 8:01:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Oh that's a funny use of that card! Yeah, my thought was to go through Baltimore and take MD while attacking DC, then on the next card move through DC and also put a SP in York, cutting off LOC to Gettysburg
270 12/26/2020 7:59:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #47: 3 / CSA Recognizes KY, MO, MD and DE
Confederate places a total of two SPs in any single space in KY, MO, MD or DE that contains a general or army in these states. The space can be controlled by either side or neutral and does not require a LOC. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
oh, now I see a path to victory... if I just read the card more carefully... never used this card other than in KY before... I can use it in DE where Bragg is hanging out... :-)

place 2 sp in Milford DE with Bragg [n3].
269 12/26/2020 7:57:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Maybe I'm missing something, but can't you get DC and raid PA, DE, and MD, even if one of your cards is a 1-op?
268 12/26/2020 7:54:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message yes, I can get DC, but USA is still alive and no state raid ... so I'm thinking of just isolating DC and getting 3 raids...
267 12/26/2020 7:51:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message leaving 2 sp in Philly is a good move as it's a capital space and I can't win on a 1*/1 result with 2 sp there.
266 12/26/2020 7:50:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message >In 239 I meant to convert Philly and appear not to have written it, hence why I only used 5 MPs, but too late now, alas. So, confirmed.

ahh, I see... no problem, Philly converted to USA... just a typo.
265 12/26/2020 7:45:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Not that it matters since you can get DC guaranteed :p

Good game! I had a lot of fun here
264 12/26/2020 7:32:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Confirmed on Manassas/AoP strength

In 239 I meant to convert Philly and appear not to have written it, hence why I only used 5 MPs, but too late now, alas. So, confirmed

no, AOP can only leave 1 sp behind because of the fort... Lincoln was adamant, everyone Forward!!!
253 12/26/2020 7:08:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message >How are all the bad cards just sitting at the bottom of the deck?

that was my question when you keep on whipping out 3-Ops every turn...
252 12/26/2020 5:38:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message As far as I can tell, 4.62 doesn't prohibit leaving Rosecrans in Washington?

3 SPs to Manassas, to you for interception/retreat

250 12/25/2020 4:34:00 PM 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:
now you pay for your earlier use of interception card... revenge for Lee!

lose your last card, and move AOP south!

Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5.

Either player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (10 space maximum) to the same space with a General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more enemy SPs or fort. OR play this card as an automatic 2 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 the intercept.

187 12/23/2020 6:11:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message I saw this coming. So the safe bet is Fredericksburg, though both Culpepper and Wilderness are very tempting with +5 drm.
