91 1/26/2021 8:06:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I've been away, will do my turn this afternoon.
90 1/25/2021 12:35:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #7: 1 / Mud March
Interrupt enemy force currently moving to no more than one space of movement. (Converting a space counts as movement.) Applies to only one move during a Major or Minor campaign card, but not a special army-naval move.

Message from Union:
Muddy roads stops Stuart in Murfreesboro

No cards left, bty
89 1/24/2021 5:48:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #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:
Nashville. Stuart and one SP to Appomatox
88 1/23/2021 6:44:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message SW: CSA 95, US 97 as it was not a large battle, I don't lose SW from losing the 2nd battle for Richmond

Bty
87 1/23/2021 6:38:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message No you didn't.

Rue 5.2. When forming an army the highest ranking general in the area is automatically commanding general, so Johnston is per defaul the leader.

It was before you won the major battle, so no FoW penalty, but you still pay 2 SW for the other Johnston in Kentucky having higher rank. So CSA SW down 2, and Johnston takes command (have always had it in fact)
86 1/23/2021 6:31:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message And now I see, that Beauregard is in command of AoNV. I thought it was Johnston. Did you take the SW hit from promoting a junor officer to general?

Checking
85 1/23/2021 6:29:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message You are in luck. 1-2*, anothe defeat for the AoP (n9 SP), and another win for AoNV (n2)

Actually we both had +2 from generals, as US commanding general is equal to CSA general (7.42.A), which allows me to use two sub-commanders, and CSA is always able to use two subcommanders. But result is the same with +4/+4, so still 1-2

Message from Union:
I assume you stay and fight, as I would just overrun and come after you anyways. So 2nd battle of Richmond

US: 11 SP, no cav, so +1 from general + 2 from odss
CSA: 3 SP, no cav, so +1 from general +2 from fort

+3/+3, US first dice
83 1/22/2021 7:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message And I am off to bed, as it is 1 am here :-)


82 1/22/2021 7:21:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #103: 3 / Seven Days/Chattanooga
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.

Message from Union:
Undaunted by severe loses, McDowel attacks Rihmond again, this time gaining +2 for superior odds

Having a hand full of 3's is very nice in this situation, as neither of us will get any reinforcements next turn...

So I attack with +4, you defend with +5. Fight or retreat? You may resolve
81 1/22/2021 7:18:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message So I have AoP with 11 and you have AoNV with three


80 1/22/2021 7:16:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Aha. I have mis-played that one

Outcome is the same then
79 1/22/2021 7:15:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Probably has the same outcome
78 1/22/2021 7:15:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message 7.52 CAVALRY INTELLIGENCE: In Army vs. Army battles, a side’s commanding general has his battle rating reduced by two, but never less than zero, if no Cavalry Brigade is present with the Army. This penalty does not apply in non-Army battles or when an Army fights a non-Army [7.43-4].


I think it applies to both of us, its not negated because neither have cav
77 1/22/2021 7:13:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message You are right about Halleck...
76 1/22/2021 7:13:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message yes I agree as per my Log before
75 1/22/2021 7:12:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message The Cav-negative is only used when one has cav and the other hasn't. If neither of us has cav, we are on equal terms, blundering along as we can, and as such we both use full powers
74 1/22/2021 7:12:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message You just rolled for Halleck again. As I understand it, once you fail an intercept, you cant roll again.

Over to you for your turn, and AoP should be 12 strength I think
73 1/22/2021 7:10:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message BTW, in the Richmond battle, I think it is wrong.

CSA should also have the leader reduced to zero due to Cav intelligence

This means that we both have zero for our Generals, meaning we can both add 2 subordinates?

So +2 for USA, +3 for CSA. Result is 5 losses each

Tell me what you think

62 1/22/2021 9:16:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message No interception

AoP takes control of Williamsburg (3rd MP), leave 1 SP, move to Ft Monroe (4th MP), pick up 2 SP (AoP now 14 SP), leave Butler as Fort Commander, back to Williamsburg and pick up the 1 SP (5th MP and AoP now 15) and attack Richmond using last MP

Unless AoNV leave Richmond and the Government behind, we are now facing a major battle.

Bty to decide on flee or fight and roll for battle, I play no CC
61 1/22/2021 6:57:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message no

Thanks for the helpful hints :)
52 1/20/2021 4:54:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message Hi John. You need five or more SP's to form an army. See 5.2.

If it is any consolation I myself is being trashed just as much in my other game as CSA, also desperately wanting to create AoV

Bty
49 1/18/2021 4:19:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message So as per your orders, you advance into Fredericksburg, drop an SP and continue to advance.

The CSA force retreats into Richmond. I think from your orders you advance into Hanover on your 6th movement point. Is this correct? Your turn over? See Vassal file
48 1/18/2021 4:16:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Beauregard, Smith and the 3 SPs retreats to Hannover.
