I have to look at it but if Greg wants me to attack I don't think I want. Besides I have a small VP cushion so I don't have to yet.

That has to be one of Vince's clarifications like you can't see through woods on level ground but you can on connecting hilltops.
63 2/27/2017 11:38:00 AM Turn 10 Greg Message Only one attack this turn for the CSA. I'm content to hold the high ground and let your big stacks come to me.

61 2/27/2017 11:33:00 AM Turn 9 Greg Message Turn 9 sure was a disaster for the CSA. This game is always unforgiving when retreats leave the remainders of the line exposed.
60 2/27/2017 11:17:00 AM Turn 9 Greg Message Your retreat must be Hancock I10 Slocum I11 and Steinwhr L10.
No retreat can be to a hex previously occupied by another USA unit in the same battle.

51 2/26/2017 2:50:00 PM Turn 9 Greg Message I think the recognized convention when you only roll one die when you should have rolled two is that you keep the first roll and then roll one more. That would make this last battle a 9:3

Message from Dave:
Hood v Sykes +2
41 2/23/2017 12:48:00 PM Turn 9 Greg Message Our new staking rules haven't changed the CSA tactics this turn. I'm putting my best stacks into a "Richard Beyma phalanx" anchored by a strong defense of the point of Cemetery Hill. The modifiers are pretty much the same as if the attacks were infantry stacks vs infantry stacks. I don't have 10 stacks, but you don't have 7 stacks so the odds are similar to a regular game.

Here is the OB

1 Hood vs Sykes @ +2 No advance.

2 Hill vs Meade @+2 No advance retreat K8

3. Lee vs Hancock @+2 No advance Retreat K9

4. Johnson vs Reynolds and Slocum @-4 No advance Retreat K9(L8)

5. Jenkins vs Steinwhr @-1 Advance. Retreat M10

6 Ewell vs Howard @+5 Advance only if Lee won his battle.

Early vs Steinwehr @ +2
17 2/10/2017 7:04:00 AM Turn 3 Dave Message USA T4 sent.
If you could stack Pender, USA could stack Doubleday, +5 would've been +2. In present situation CSA would've had a +3. Fell back to Cemetary hill with a rearguard in Gettysburg. Trading Units for time.
16 2/8/2017 10:30:00 AM Turn 3 Greg Message This is the first turn where the revised stacking rule has changed the CSA game. IF I had been able to stack Pender with heath I would have attacked Wadsworth at +5. That gives me a good chance to advance Hill and have a ten stack. The artillery would be back at Seminary ridge.
15 2/8/2017 6:15:00 AM Turn 3 Dave Message USA T3 sent. I've seen Preacher's daughters at a sunday school picnic more exposed then Pender.

One attack:
All adjacent vs Gamble on the wooded hill @ 10:6 Adv AP Hill stack.
Pender is exposed to counterattack, but I'm pretty sure you won't counterattack this turn. That will change once the CSA "small stacks" get to Cemetery Hill, I'll have to deploy more carefully.

3 2/4/2017 6:54:00 AM Turn 1 Dave Message Same Corps and Corps commander. Also Cav. and Horse Artillery and Corps Commander, Tyler and AR and any Inf.
Lee, Meade and Hancock (1st day) Any Inf, Any Artillery,or Any Cavalry, Artillery including both Horse and regular Artillery or combination there of ie: Inf and Horse Artillery or Cavalry and and regular artillery are allowed with these Leaders. Keep reminding me to place this information in the log and not e-mails. Also Double Range Artillery and Leader bonus work the same as in the rules. We will be playing with no bid and no delayed entry. Greg is the highest Rated AREA so he will have choice of sides
2 2/3/2017 3:18:00 PM Turn 1 Greg Message As I understand this option, stacking infantry is not allowed, but artillery and infantry can stack as long as they are the same corp. The exception is that reserve artillery may stack with infantry as long as Tyler is stacked with them. Question: how does Hancock, Lee and Meade change this?
1 2/3/2017 10:29:00 AM Turn 1 Greg Message Dave,
I setup this game log so that we have a place to archive our comments as we observe how these optional rules play out.
