In my experience, if you don't play cards at all, you'l be able to sell abot 20% of the cotton you have for 50 $. is there anywhere that lists ...

Rosencrans should have waited for you to cross. Who was this against? Athena? What is the NM of the Union?

It is an impressive battle and a sad day for the Union. I suppose it is the end of the young Republican party.

Is CW2 affected, was it for sale on itunes? Is itunes the same as the apple app store? No, ACW2 is not affected. It is available for download to PC. Slitherine sells a number of games on the iTunes store, but there are no Civil War titles. The terms iTunes and AppStore, in this story, are the same.
