28 2/16/2021 6:06:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message >>>>there are many event cards that allow placement of PCs without SPs or LOC.

Fair comment, but they generally provide specific exceptions and explain what states the PCs can be placed in
27 2/16/2021 3:02:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message I don't have a rulebook handy right now, but you'll notice there are many event cards that allow placement of PCs without SPs or LOCs.

This is the reason why these cards are in the deck. I've forwarded your message to the GMs for them to reply to you.
26 2/15/2021 5:28:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Sorry but Im just trying to understand the rules. As I read it, thats not the case. As per below, PC markers can be played as EC or OC, then A) makes the restriction that it must be in a border state or in a space with SPs. This applies to EC as well.

============

11.3 Placing Political Control Markers: Strategy Rounds
A player may use a Strategy Card to place PC markers on the board. If the Strategy Card is played as an EC, place the number of PC markers indicated within the specifications of the card. If the Strategy Card is played as an OC, then the number of PC markers placed is equal to the value of the OC.

RESTRICTIONS:
A) A player may place PC markers in any space that contains any number of friendly in supply infantry SPs or in a Border State space that is still neutral (no PC marker, enemy SP or forts present, Border State can be controlled by either side or neutral). Exception: See 5.53 Cavalry Brigade.
B) A player cannot use an OC to place PC markers if his
25 2/15/2021 7:34:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message This is an event card play. The text of the card supersedes the normal PC placement rules.
24 2/14/2021 5:57:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Hi, Im confused. I thought the rule is:

A player may place PC markers in any space that contains any number of friendly in supply infantry SPs or in a Border State space that is still neutral (no PC marker, enemy SP or forts present, Border State can be controlled by either side or neutral).

ie. in Border states, or in hex with SPs
