367 1/15/2021 9:31:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message Thx for reporting the result and yes, I am immediately available to start my revanche :).

And sure I'd be happy to get some feedback, preferred via email. I also had the feeling that without your breakthrough in Fred the game would have played quite differently (though probably with the same winner).
366 1/15/2021 8:22:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message CSA SW for control of MO: 93(+) +10 = 103(+)

USA SW: 27(-)

So that's a wrap. I'll report to GM. I'd be down to start our next one soon if that works for you (can ask GM to set it up if so). I can also send some thoughts about this game when I get a chance, if you'd like. Was pretty close until I was able to cut off DC.
365 1/15/2021 8:18:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #17: 3 / CSA Purchasing Agent
Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any open Blockade Runner Port, no more than one SP per port, but more than one SP per Blockade Zone is permitted. If insufficient ports are available, the excess SPs are lost.

356 1/14/2021 7:16:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message just in case that AoM had to stop after the battle I would move 1 SP from the Army to DC
355 1/14/2021 7:15:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #15: 1 / Mosby's Raiders
Confederate can remove two Union PC Markers in Virginia within 2 spaces of Winchester, VA. The spaces may contain Union generals, SPs or forts.

354 1/14/2021 7:15:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Can the AoM really go on although it was only a 9/6 SP battle? If yes I would attack again.
353 1/14/2021 6:36:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #45: 3 / Food Shortage
Confederate loses SW equal to current Union blockade value.

Message from Confederate:
Yes, thank you for saying +5 as your actual attack total. I was factoring in the OOS in my mind but not in what I wrote.

To speed things up, no matter whether you attack AoNV again or where you move, I'll place PCs in in Jefferson City and Springfield, MO

We can definitely play out last card if desired, but good game!
352 1/14/2021 6:32:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Yes, Gettysburg is only choice as far as I can tell.

Union may make a naval more with up to three SPs plus one general. Move may pass one ungarrisoned fort without “running the guns” to conduct an amphibious assault (may not pass an ironclad). Ignore first torpedo encountered during naval move. If the port space is captured it immediately receives a Union PC marker. Add +2 to Running the Guns die roll.

Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Army’s Commanding General’s battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry general’s battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.
