Message from Confederate:
It was tempting to use this in one of my attacks, but I was hoping 2 50-50 shots would get through, statistically speaking..

Place a CSA PC on the following:
1) Falmouth, KY
102 2/21/2021 12:06:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Well, I took 2 50-50 shots (roughtly) at smashing through Frederick, but you held both times..

I don't unfortunately have the cards to really capitalize on having a double-last move, we'll just have to do what damage we can..
101 2/20/2021 11:45:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #82: 3 / Foreign Intervention - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player can play this card as an EC when Confederate SW is 110+. If this is the last card in a players hand or the second to last and the player holds the Emancipation Proclamation, if the condition is met, it must be played as an EC, if not it can be played as an OC. EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3. Union SW reduced by 10. Remove from deck if event is played. If card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at end of the Strategy Phase.

Yes, the attack must continue.. We'll trust to our superior Southern leadership to ensure victory!
96 2/18/2021 8:29:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Geoff:

Just want to make sure we’re on the same page.
Per Journal Entry 81, AoNV was at strength n14 for the first Battle of Frederick. The battle resulted in 6SP casualties for AoNV (Journal Entries 85 & 86), leaving AoNV at a strength of n8, not n9 as you noted in Journal Entry 95. Do you still wish to proceed with the second attack on Fort Frederick?

95 2/18/2021 3:30:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #42: 2 / Kentucky Anarchy
Remove up to three enemy PC markers in Kentucky. You must also remove one of your own PC markers from the state if you have any there. Removal of a PC marker makes a space neutral. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
AoNV (n9) will make another attack on Frederick, MD

1) -> Frederick, MD (battle? intercept? retreat?)

You may resolve.

94 2/18/2021 2:48:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #20: 3 / Union Arms Production Delayed
Confederate removes two Union SPs (Confederate chooses). No more than one SP can be removed from a space and the SP cannot be the last SP in the space.

93 2/16/2021 7:07:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Without the intercept, you would have won, even with the 2/4 roll. I had to play the card, although if you believe the intercept roll would have been the first battle roll, McClellan would have intercepted without finding the 3 cigars. But that's leaving too much to chance and McClellan!
92 2/16/2021 3:38:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Well, not so good, battle of Antietam, South can't afford to lose large battles..

But it cost you an intercept card.. so we'll see if we can make some hay with that..

I only had a straight up 61% change of winning without the intercept..
91 2/16/2021 1:46:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Looks good, over to you..
90 2/16/2021 1:12:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message I think that I flubbed the initial intercept note. According to the card, Halleck is with AOP in Frederick now as well.

24 2/7/2021 3:52:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message Yes. Attacking JJ seems to be a standard opening USA move, provided the USA player has a 3Ops card.

22 2/7/2021 2:52:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Correct, if you had attacked JJ the Que would be lost (can be used to bluff an attack, though)..

Or if I did something else, it would be lost as well..

But if you could attack JJ, you would have on your first play.. :)
21 2/7/2021 2:50:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message As I watched your example and read the OpsQ rules, it appears to me that one has to play the cards consecutively to gain the benefit.

I also understood that any interruption in the sequence leads to forfeiture of the previously played card.

16 2/7/2021 2:43:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #81: 3 / Emancipation Proclamation - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player must play this card as an EC on the Strategy Round immediately following a Union large or medium battle victory. Confederate loses 10 SW and 3 SPs (his choice). Union loses 5 SW. Flip GT marker to its Emancipation Proclamation side. Card must be the last one played by a player at which time it can be played as an OC card. If the play of this card as an OC results in a battle victory, there is no Emancipation Proclamation Remove from deck if event is played. If this card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at the end of the Strategy Phase.

Message from Union:
So, actually, I do have a 3 Ops card.
