89 7/6/2021 1:59:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Fremont on the board costs me -2, -3 for reversal of fortune, so -5=107+.
88 7/6/2021 1:57:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #94: 2 / Strategy Board
Union player may make a naval move with up to three SPs plus one general.

Message from Union:
Burnside forms the Army of the Tennessee in Pittsurgh. Strength 5, Burnside in command.
87 7/6/2021 1:54:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Well, yes, it's 7 for control of KY, but you don't get it until the political phase. I still have time to respond.

So how did you know Van Dorn could become cav if you didn't know about the other special general rules?

Also--Forrest can add an extra SP to become a 2SP cavalry unit.

Sheridan can become a cav brigade, too. He starts as a 1, and as long as he stays at 1SP, he can return to infantry. He can go to 2SP, but once he does, he is stuck as a cav general.
86 7/5/2021 11:30:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message That's seven PC for CSA control of Kentucky right ?
85 7/5/2021 11:28:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #16: 2 / Grierson's Raid

well done !
83 7/5/2021 11:25:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #74: 2 / Political Crisis
The Union player may remove or demote one Union general for no SW cost. The cost for promoting a general with a lower political value still applies. OR remove ANY Union non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game.

Message from Union:
Use the event to relieve McDowall from Command of AotP for free. I'll demote him, so put him on the turn track, next turn.

Promote McClellan to command AotP. No SW cost there, either, since he's a 10. Special ability, since he's within 4 spaces of the capital, is +5SW for Union. Union SW now 112+.

His other ability is AotP gets +1 SP during reinforcement phase while McClellan is in command in or adjacent to DC.

74 6/30/2021 7:29:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Go ahead and make Van Dorn cav.

I don't think I would have used McClellan's ability yet.

So the special rules apply to all generals.
73 6/30/2021 7:28:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message No effect on SW. Only a large battle affects SW, so you need 20+ SP in the battle.

We were 12 vs 6 so 18.
72 6/30/2021 7:27:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Well, if Van Dorn becomes cav, then we're using an optional rule for generals' special abilities.

We didn't say we were using the rule, and I could have used McClellan differently if we had, so I don't think we should start it mid-game. What do you think?
71 6/29/2021 8:00:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Doesn't the DC battle affect Strategic Will ?
