184 1/6/2021 4:09:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Thanks for the game!

Well the issue was never in doubt after the CSA offensive of the first turn, I just wanted to know how long I could hold. But the 2 cards in the row basically sealed it. Well some lessons learned :-)

Good luck in your next games,
Filip

166 1/5/2021 2:05:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Yep! Here is the rule that talks about this.

5.82 ONE ATTEMPT PER MOVE: A player may only make one interception attempt per enemy move. Once a player has attempted an interception he may not make any further interception attempts during that enemy move. During a Campaign card event a player gets one interception attempt per enemy move (two on a Minor and three on a Major campaign).
165 1/5/2021 11:46:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message And thanks for the interception part - I somehow thought you had one attempt per "space entered", not the move...

118 1/3/2021 4:13:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I agree with the rest. I'm off to bed. You can proceed with troop additions. Good night!
117 1/3/2021 4:11:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message See 5.8 for full rules but here is the most relevant section:

In a successful interception, the whole force must move, not part of it. Exceptions: SPs in excess
of movement restrictions (on that type of force moved) must remain behind. One SP may remain if a fort was present in the space from which the interception occurred. One or the minimal amount of SPs required may be left behind if the restrictions in 5.29 or 5.34 would be violated.
116 1/3/2021 4:08:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Also, Frederick stays under CSA control
115 1/3/2021 4:07:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message When you intercept, if it isn't out of a fort, you must take your entire force.

So Frederick (not Fredericksburg) is n0. Baltimore goes to n7 for fight, then n5 from losing 2 troops, then n4 after attrition.
114 1/3/2021 3:52:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message I will let you check that part to see if I did not forget something

103 1/2/2021 4:18:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Did you send an updated map? I don't see one.
102 1/2/2021 4:16:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message The rules on this game are so numerous. I often have to play with the rulebook open.

Yes, the SPs do not matter for establishing LOC (although they will give PC at the end of the round if they are in supply then)

Here is the rule:

8.1 Lines of Communication
A unit is “in supply” if it has a Line of Communication (LOC). A unit has a LOC if it can trace a path of spaces to an ultimate supply source. All spaces of the path (except the space of the force) must be friendly-controlled or neutral, and free of enemy SPs or forts (exception: Riverine spaces under Union naval control). If a unit cannot trace a LOC, it is out of supply and must forage
during the Attrition Phase.

-- So for your attack moving from Baltimore to Annapolis, "all spaces of the path" are not friendly controlled.

So my troop in Charlottesville will only be helping me reestablish supply in northern Virginia once the turn ended(if you had Hanover blocked again)
101 1/2/2021 3:25:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Just a question for OOS - the factvof having SPs in the space supplying (Baltimore) does not matter? You need to have the political control of the space?
100 1/2/2021 3:19:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message OK, thanks

I will let you update the map
99 1/2/2021 3:00:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Let me know if you agree, and we can continue
98 1/2/2021 3:00:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I believe this leaves Burnside and Banks in Annapolis with n2. Halleck in Baltimore with n3.

As a favor, if you could note remaining SP when you pick up forces, that would be helpful to me when I'm trying to follow the log.
97 1/2/2021 2:57:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message 7.33 WHEN THE WINNER IS ELIMINATED: The elimination of the winner does not change who won. If the attacker wins but is eliminated, the defender does not retreat, but instead remains in the space. When a Union Amphibious Assault against an ungarrisoned Confederate coastal fort eliminates the Union force, the Confederate player retains control of the fort.

(We are in this scenario -->) If the defender in the battle wins but is totally eliminated, the following procedure is used:

A. If the space contained a fort or coastal fort, the defender wins
and the attacker retreats.

B. If the space did not contain a fort or coastal fort, and the
defending force had a general present, the attacker occupies
the space, but his movement ends.

C. If the space did not contain a fort or coastal fort, and the
defending force did not have a general present, then the attacking force can continue moving if it began the battle more than twice the size of the defender; otherwise, the attacker’s
movement ends.
96 1/2/2021 2:56:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message So you are the loser of the battle (as CSA wins 1/1, with stars not counting)

You do not retreat though due to rule 7.33. This is especially good for you as you would have lost an additional SP from retreating into an enemy controlled spot.
95 1/2/2021 2:48:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message CSA was +2 also as Burnside was OOS. Doesn't matter with the dice that were rolled. Just a note
94 1/2/2021 2:41:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message 1*/1
From what I understand, this is a capital so I lose the battle and retreat back to Baltimore
