as in amphibious attacks the modifiers are integrated into one (US positive) modifier and the cs rolled a one which results in no attacker loss.

Hope your health is as improving as your progress of war!
37 2/16/2021 11:46:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message 18.0 Play Note for 6.4 Amphibious Assaults


1-1: This is a case for ungarrisoned forts, where the number of invading SPs makes a difference in the outcome. If there is only 1 Union SP the Amphibious invasion fails, due to rule 7.32, and 6.81 does not apply since there are no surviving SP. If there are 2 or more Union SP, then the Amphibious invasion succeeds due to 6.81 since there is a surviving Union SP.


Whew, took some looking and with my eyes it was hard. LOL

CSW SW 100+ to 96- (-1 Fort -3 momentum)

32 2/13/2021 2:29:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Defender elim is a bit confusing :)

The result is 1/1 on the small battle table, so the defender wins but is eliminated.
According to 7.33 A the defender wins and the attacker retreats one space.

So Halleck and 3 SP retreat and lose one additional SP, so the Fort is alone at Dover and 4 SP/Halleck are at Clarksville.
31 2/12/2021 10:23:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message So I am confused what happens here. I have been getting different answers. Do I take the fort? or do you keep it with nothing inside?

I still have 2 moves after this one.
