278 10/12/2019 6:19:00 PM Turn 6 Jeff Message Agreed, another very enjoyable game. Earlier in the game, I was trying to force Hooker through your lines where he could get into your rear. However, it was a risky move to place his corps in a spot where he was already surrounded. I was hoping to win the next init and was then going to launch an assault of my own. However, Hood’s attack forced the corps to retreat. The Grand assaults at the end where really a result of Hooker’s retreat. With time running out, I felt like I did not have much time to organize an attack in a different area and pretty much had to attack in the center. It was another fun game!

As far as the tournament is concerned, the knock-out round is starting this week and we will be playing this same scenario. Hopefully, I’ll do a bit better! Obviously, it is a big advantage if you have played a given scenario in the past. We just finished the third-round game, “McClellan’s Opportunity”. I lost a very close game but made it to the knock out round since I won my first 2 games.

As far as playing another game, I would love to at some point in the future. However, I am also traveling on a business trip next week and will have another one in November. So, I do not want to start a new game right now. While we were playing this game, I picked up SJW II and BAC on the used market, so there are plenty of choices going forward! How about we touch base in a month or so and see how our schedules look going forward.

Thanks for the game again and enjoy your vacation!

277 10/11/2019 10:36:00 PM Turn 6 Gordon Message Jeff. I agree. I don't see a lot of options for you. You could throw yourself at the CSA lines and hope to get lucky. But even if you did, I don't see how you'd have the ability to exploit it enough to get out of the VP deficit you're in.

I'll pass as well, which will end the turn and the game.

Another well played battle. I really enjoyed it and think it could have gone either way again depending on the rolls. Unfortunately for you, I had a good roll with Hood to send you back on the right flank and you had a bad roll with the assault against Johnston.

How did your other tournament game go? same scenario if I recall?

Do you want to play another game? Im headed out of town for a week vacation in Maine, but if so, we can pick up when I get home next weekend. Let me know.
276 10/11/2019 8:50:00 PM Turn 6 Jeff Message Going back to init 13

New Log file is:
"060a_AIO_K Mtn June 27- init 13 redo.vlog"

Move Blair to Gresham in 1211

Unfortunately, I'm not seeing too much opportunity to do anything other than kill more Union soldiers now. Now that Blair's antics have been discovered, the CSA lines are looking pretty solid given what I have available.

I am going to pass on int 13. If you want to continue and counter attack, I certainly will play on. However, if you want to stop here and lock in your beyond-decisive victory then that is certainly understandable as well!

BTY...
275 10/11/2019 1:29:00 PM Turn 6 Jeff Message No no, Blair wasn’t accidentally placed on the entrenchments, he snuck in behind the enemy lines at night and tricked Loring’s Division into surrendering! And even better than that, he then repatriated the division of Rebs who all took the oath of allegiance to the Union. They are planning to make a surprise march and take Marietta with their Union compatriots!

When you are down as many VPs as I am, you need to think outside the box! :)

Enough of the poor humor. You are absolutely right. Back at file 51, I did intend for Blair to transfer to Gresham and misplaced him as is clearly shown in the file. However, after the Grand Assault, when I looked back at that at that region northeast of Kennesaw Mountain, I simply assumed that Loring was a Union Division. Had I won the next init, I was going to try to attack Marietta using Loring’s Division along with the other Union forces there!

I am actually happy that you found the error because I was wondering how I could have missed such a golden opportunity to get at Marietta. Here I was focusing on a crude frontal assault when there were huge gains still to be made by maneuvering and I totally missed them!

I will correct the moves tonight. Blair could have been a real hero!

274 10/9/2019 10:37:00 PM Turn 6 Gordon Message Jeff, you moved all your forces onto a CSA occupied fort. Hex 1212 is a Confederate hex occupied by Loring and 12 CSA factors. For some reason, Blair (A US Corps leader) was sitting on top of my fort.

I traced it back to logfile 51. During the leader transfer you moved Blair onto Loring (CSA). Clearly, we never caught it. We were probably both focused on the brown unit identifier. Frankly it was a non issue since I knew I had a 12 CSA factor in that fort. Clearly, he belonged with McPherson/Gresham

I wont make a difference to me up to this point. You're moving Gresham using his +1 drm, which you would/could still do.

However, moving Union infantry and cav onto a CSA occupied fort... yeah, can't let that slide.

BTY to redo inits 13 and 14.

Final result is 0 9D/D (additional loss for Union due to attack with 80+ MPV (7.2)

Apply US losses to: Sweeny 2 (7 to 5); Harrow 2 (8 to 6); Leggett 1 (7 to 6); Stanley 2 (12 to 10), Johnson 2 (15 to 13)

All Union Units to F4, disorg

Bate and French to F4

US KIAs 16+9 = 25

That is probably the end of Sherman's career and Abe's presidency and the war!
