122 12/15/2018 12:10:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Please adjust my units as follows. Judah to 1 manpower.
Hooker's stack...Butterfield to FAT 4
Sherman's stack...Baird to FAT 4. Davis & Johnson to FAT 3.
Schofield's stack...Judah & Cox to FAT 4.
Howard's stack...Wood & Newton to FAT 4.

Thx.
121 12/15/2018 11:59:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Agreed. I misunderstood 1 of the entrenchment chits.
120 12/15/2018 11:46:00 AM Turn 1 CSA Message Nice Assault, well executed! The only thing I see is I think the CSA had 34 MPV in 2011:
Hindman 14 MPV x 1.5 = 21 MPV
Bate: 8 MPV x 1.5 = 12 MPV
Grigsby: 1 MPV
CSA Total = 34 MPV

That means that the ratio would be 2-1 for a ratio DRM of +1. Final DRM for US would then be +1, and final result of battle would be +3 considering your die roll.

Battle results should then be:
CSA: 2Dr
US: 6Fa

Do you agree with that?

If so, then that would be one FAT and 1 more MPV loss for the US.

Let me know if you agree then I'll figure out my retreat.
119 12/15/2018 10:04:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message
Union losses taken by Judah. Reduced from 7 to 2. All units add 1 FAT.
Union forces will advance after retreat.

Bottom line...Union +2
Agree?

114 12/15/2018 9:33:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message I have 95-30. Geary & Williams not participating.
113 12/15/2018 9:28:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Previous should say flipping. No EM rolls.

Hooker's command roll
108 12/15/2018 9:17:00 AM Turn 1 CSA Message No cav retreat, Grigsby will fight with his comrades!
107 12/15/2018 9:10:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Hooker will assault 2011 again. Cav retreat?
106 12/15/2018 7:39:00 AM Turn 1 CSA Message John, one thing to be careful of. If you activate or move any units such that a Cav retreat might be possible, you want to be sure to offer your opponent the chance to perform a cav retreat even if you think it is unlikely that he would accept. An unscrupulous opponent could make you redo you move from the point of the cav retreat onward.

For example, suppose during your last turn, Hooker's assault had succeeded and you took the space. I could then say that "I had a Cav Brig in 2011 (Grigsby) and wanted to do a cav retreat". Per the rules, you would then have to let me do the Cav retreat and re-roll the assault. It's hard enough to make some of the assaults succeed in this game, you don't want to give your opponent the opportunity make you do it twice!

Now to be fair, everybody I have met in playing these games have been good people and I would hope that nobody would employ such tactics! But when you find yourself in the finals of the GCACW Tourney, playing for the $42 Million first place prize, you don't want to test your opponents scruples! :)

66 12/13/2018 7:58:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message First, before I move, I have a tip for you in vassal. If you double click on a stack of units, you can “expand” it. If you then hold the shift key, you can select specific counters from the stack. You can then move the selected counters together (and only the selected counters). For example, if you wanted to move Howard, Wood, the 10 MPV marker and the fatigue marker (only) from the stack, you could select those 4 counters by holding the shift key and selecting them. You could then move those 4 counters together and the rest of the original stack would remain in place. It is very useful in game like GCACW where you are often dealing with large stacks of counters. Try it out when you get a chance!

Some Book keeping:
Place Pontoon Bridge on 2216
VPs US: 9 VPs for Pontoon Bridge +1 VP for Barcikowski CSA Bid = 10 VP for US

Init 4, CSA: Activate Iverson and Morgan with Martin; F1
34 12/11/2018 12:20:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Just looking over the scenario rules. Apparently, only 1 unit may cross the pontoon per "action phase"
If I'm in violation...please move Burke back to 2215.

26 12/10/2018 9:38:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Apparently, the Union has won the init. I'll continue on.
25 12/10/2018 6:50:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message John, everything looks good to me with your first 2 actions. Vassal file looks good as well.

However, on entry 23 (Init roll for init 3), I think the USA wins the initiative. The CSA had a 1 and the USA had a 4. So, the US still has the initiative.

Do you agree?
