59 4/18/2019 8:36:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message The game is one of numbers, luck and position.
You did not have poor play but the cards were just fair. You were doing what was needed - banging on the union Cap to keep them focused on the east and protect your west.

Even after reading the strategy guides I still cant get my opponent to follow suit ;o) - which is welcoming - the human factor.

Take care and if you want a game for fun hit me up and we can talk strategy but I am not a pro like these tourney guys.

58 4/18/2019 8:25:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message At this stage I'm going to resign, Ken. This game has some intriguing aspects to it, but I just can't get a handle on the strategy no matter which side I play.

Sorry for the poor performance and good luck to you in your future contests. I'll notify James.

2 4/4/2019 11:36:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Hi Ken,

Do you want to exchange game moves via Vassal? If so, what frequency: after every move, at the end of a turn?

I'm comfortable with going by the ACTS log for individual card moves. But for Reinforcements, Strategic Movement, etc., it's helpful to have a Vassal map. It's too easy for us to get out of sync during those stages.
