263 11/22/2017 8:06:00 AM Turn 1 Bob Hamel Message If I don't have to roll again and still win I'm happy with that.

It really was your win except for 3 or 4 crazy 1-10 rolls
that made the difference.

Have a great Thanksgiving and thanks for the extra game
262 11/22/2017 7:57:00 AM Turn 1 Willie Voll Message The way I see it is, if you take the 1 step loss, it will be a Union victory by 1 VP. Versus using the CHIT and risking a 2 step and tying.

How do you see it?
261 11/22/2017 7:55:00 AM Turn 1 Willie Voll Message It is a step loss and retreat for Union.

I think that blocks you from any endruns - I had a few
last min. changes so that if all went to heck, I would
still be blocking a VP area

250 11/21/2017 8:27:00 AM Turn 1 Willie Voll Message Crazy dice.

Map is good. Good luck.
249 11/21/2017 6:06:00 AM Turn 1 Bob Hamel Message Current score on board shows
CSA 47 and USA 46

You win ties ( assuming there was no bid but I can't remember)

When we played on ladder reverse game there didn't seem to be a bid so this is probably correct.

SO, I need to kill 2 points or take back the Culp's Hill
248 11/21/2017 6:00:00 AM Turn 1 Bob Hamel Message WOW, again the USA escapes destruction

193 11/2/2017 6:29:00 AM Turn 1 Bob Hamel Message so I think you are now up
Just lost my ladder game of this - it was close
for a few turns but CSA kept switching from north
to south attacks and I did get a few stacks down
to 8 or so but he starting wiping out whole
stacks of mine with a few 1-10 rolls - brutal

I see they are not - Move Meade instead to I7 instead of current location of I8 as I7 and H7 ARE connected
then it would be 10-8 - not 10 to 7 as stated.
179 10/25/2017 7:24:00 PM Turn 1 Willie Voll Message The first combat maybe a 10:9. AP hill has 6 combat strength, non-connected woods +1 and on a hill +2. How do you see it? If I am correct, you may adjust.

RE Lee / Alexander v Ranson @ 9:1. No advance. Retreat H8 / H9.

It does matter to me how the dice are rolled. The method you mentioned about rolling 5 or 6 sounds good.
173 10/21/2017 7:13:00 AM Turn 1 Bob Hamel Message Also, one of the other things we've done with my friend Ken is to roll 5 or 6 dice and then call ....

Count the 2nd 2 or count the last 2 or some such.
172 10/21/2017 7:02:00 AM Turn 1 Willie Voll Message Yes! Good idea. I was getting worried that I was miskeying something that caused the weight of the dice rolls to be higher on #2. I remember 1 game long time ago where I was unstoppable, even at unfavorable combat odds. Perhaps on the next die roll sequence, alternate the attackers dice roll - first on 1st combat, 2nd on second combat, 1st on third combat, etc...
171 10/21/2017 6:58:00 AM Turn 1 Bob Hamel Message map looks fine (sort of) :-)

Would have looked a heck of a lot better with a few Major Union wins last battle.
170 10/21/2017 6:53:00 AM Turn 1 Bob Hamel Message Not for nothing, but I just sent a question to the ACTS
staff asking them to look into the die roller (sent via the ConSim forum board).

I've noticed a 'trend' that 2nd roll of a 2 die roll request seems to be lopsided - 2nd roll coming out higher over the majority of times - NOT just in this series of rolls -
I was playing a game of Hannibal (and also just doing some test rolls so both 10 sided and 6 sided) and in over 75 percent of the rolls - 2nd roll won. So I asked staff to look into possible algorithm issue - or perhaps just my bad luck?

I did a series of 30 rolls - 5 rolls the 1st die was higher - 3 rolls the die was tied and balance were 2nd roll higher.....that seems odd to me but what the heck?
169 10/21/2017 6:52:00 AM Turn 1 Willie Voll Message Favorable combat odds for Union, but dice did not come through. File on the way for your review.
