Confederate loses SW equal to current Union blockade value.

Message from Confederate:
Place a Fort in New Orleans
53 1/19/2021 8:14:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I believe so, the fort was under siege, but didn't fall until I got a PC marker on it, which was at the end of turn 1.
52 1/19/2021 8:05:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message When I moved Price and his 1sp from Fayetteville to Columbus KY. Was it a legal move?
51 1/19/2021 8:04:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Yes, your ability to freely cross the Mississippi is somewhat reduced by Union gunboats right now..
50 1/19/2021 7:24:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message when you took Fort St. Philp/Jackson did you establish control of the Mississippi from there to Columbus KY?
49 1/19/2021 5:40:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I just use scenario files, but my version is sent.

Let me know if you have any trouble with it. The board position is not too complicated, would be happy to list our positions here in the log as well..
48 1/19/2021 5:13:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I do not know how I did it but I deleted every single strength point on my board and unfortunately I saved the file before I noticed it.

All the other markers are there.

I've been using CB for decades and have never done that before. Not even sure how I did it.

But is it possible for you to send me your game file?
47 1/19/2021 5:10:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Sorry, can't put one in Jonesborough, IL

+1 SP -> Harrisburg, PA (n2) instead..
46 1/19/2021 5:06:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #9: 3 / Clara Barton
Union immediately adds three SPs due to improved sanitary conditions. Place in any space (friendly controlled or not) that already contains a Union SP and has a LOC, no more than one per space.

+1 SP -> Cairo, IL (n3)
+1 SP -> Jonesborough, IL
45 1/19/2021 5:03:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message AoNV, n8, in Hannover, VA
JJ in Command, Beau is 2nd, Stuart Cav

ASJ complains publicly about less competent generals being given commands.

CSA SW - 96- -2 = 94-
44 1/19/2021 5:03:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message J Johnston is in command so I'm going to lose some SW because S. Johnston is miffed.

I think I lose 2 SW correct?
43 1/19/2021 4:59:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #95: 2 / Strategy Board
Union player may make a naval move with up to three SPs plus one general.

Message from Confederate:

42 1/19/2021 4:55:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Yes, for now.
41 1/19/2021 4:50:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Does this mean Freemont is XO of the AoP?
40 1/18/2021 8:15:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #126: 1 / Valley Devastation
If Union infantry SPs occupy all three Shenandoah Valley spaces the Union player places a destroyed Resource marker in all Shenandoah Valley spaces. These destroyed Resource markers cannot be removed and prevent the Confederate player from using the Shenandoah valley as a supply source for the remainder of the game. Remove from deck if event is played.

24 1/16/2021 9:27:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #102: 3 / First Manassas
Confederate Player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (5 space maximum) 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. 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 Confederate:
well I'm not sure about this but Let's give it a try

SM 1 SP from Richmond (n0) to Manasas Beauregard (n4)
1- Strasburg PU J Johnston and 1 SP (n5)
2-3 Grafton WV
5:1 battle which should be an auto victory your SP removed Beauregard (n4)
4 -8 Hanover VA (4)
23 1/16/2021 5:58:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #104: 1 / Big Bethel
Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if they were led by a General. This move is a Corps move and may enter enemy controlled spaces because the SPs are moving as if they are led by a general.

Message from Union:
Activate 2 SPs in Pittsburgh, PA

1) -> Wheeling, WV

Union player removes three SPs (Union player’s choice).

Message from Confederate:
I hope this is as nasty as it sounds. No offense :)
20 1/16/2021 3:55:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message 10.21 "Friendly control spaces"

Enemy PCs definitely block SR.. You can trace supply through neutral spaces, but not SR through them..
19 1/16/2021 3:50:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Just to be clear

You can strategically move through an opponents PC marker
18 1/16/2021 3:41:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #60: 2 / USS Monitor

17 1/16/2021 3:16:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #67: 2 / J.B. Eads, Riverine Ironclads
The Union Amphibious Assault modifier is increased by two.

Message from Confederate:
activate Price in Fayetteville AK.

1-6 to Columbus KY
16 1/16/2021 3:13:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I was debating placing a PC marker in either Paducah or Grafton. I thought Grafton messed more with your SM.
15 1/15/2021 10:24:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #92: 2 / Baltimore Revolts
Confederate may place a friendly PC marker in Baltimore, MD, if the space is vacant.

Message from Union:
Place USA PCs on the following:
1) Paducah, KY
2) Louisville, KY
14 1/15/2021 10:23:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message Nope, you can intercept into a space where you already have troops.

If the CSA really needs the +modifiers, they can use some of their extra Cav, and leave it behind their army, and then intercept into their own army for an additional +2..
13 1/15/2021 10:22:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message I think I should have converted Winchester, I hadn't quite decided to see if I should attack Manassas or not..

In the end, since I sent troops out to AA, I decided not to attack,and didn't go back to change my move to convert Winchester.


12 1/15/2021 9:44:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #19: 1 / Belmont
Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if led by a General. This move is a Corps move and may enter enemy controlled spaces because the SPs are moving as if they are led by a general.

Message from Confederate:
Place a PC marker in Grafton WV
11 1/15/2021 9:35:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message also did you leave Harpers Ferry empty so you can have an intercept capability? You can't do that if there is a SP there right? it has to be an adjacent space with no SP?
10 1/15/2021 9:32:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Ah yes the force ratio I forgot.

So I have to ask. Why not spend the extra MP to place a PC in Winchester? I am perplexed since you had an extra MP to burn.
9 1/15/2021 3:02:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message I would have had +4 attack modifier (if there had been a battle), +1 for leader, +3 for 4:1 odds.

AoP, d1, n3 in Winchester, VA

4) -> Harpers Ferry, VA
5) -> Frederick, MD (pu1, n4)

Over to you..
