147 1/15/2020 1:10:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message Yes, thanks, Bruno. Hood and Johnston both didn't come though for the Rebs. I count the attack pips totaling 6 against the Rebs, who also were 0-2 in Johnston grand assault attempts--especially that disastrous -3 Hood attack roll differential after the failed grand that allowed all of Hooker's surrounded corps to do the "forward retreat" in good order to Smyrna Station. Being in good order, from then on Hooker just dug in at Smyrna. Thanks for the good game.
146 1/15/2020 9:34:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message That will finish off the Rebs. Congrats Mark. What I thought was an innocuous attempt to fatigue Hooker's corps enabled you to get to the victory hex with much less effort than you having to move there. Well played and good luck going forward.

So, he first retreats into 1518 (friendly occupied), then 1418, 1419, then off-map into 1320. He's removed from play. Schofield rides back to join Cox in 1417.

To you for any advance and for next initiative roll. I'll send a file.

91 12/13/2019 11:05:00 PM Turn 2 CSA Message Hood activates Clayton, transfers to him, moves 1 hex to 1616.
90 12/8/2019 9:13:00 AM Turn 2 USA Message I was using retreat chart 2 for the 2nd-4th hexes, because the voluntary retreat option rules say it should be considered a retreat, not a rout. In a normal retreat after the first hex the unit can move anywhere not in enemy ZOC as long as it isn't closer to the attacking unit and it doesn't violate the other retreat restrictions. But you raise a good question. Perhaps we should check with Justin.
89 12/7/2019 11:32:00 PM Turn 2 CSA Message Looking at the defender's retreat option, you must still follow the retreat rules, so my argument would be that the retreat trail would be 1716, 1815, but then, you'd have to move to 1814 due to the road, instead of 1915. The 4th hex could be 1914. Essentially it would take you your first init to move the 1 hex onto Smyrna Station. Agree?

Thanks for the file. All looks fine now with the recovery except I made Loring exhausted since he was f4.

The USA wins the next initiative.

Hooker will activate his 3 divisions: Butterfield, Williams, and Geary.

Butterfield and Williams entrench, gaining an abatis.

Geary will just march in place and refuse flanks, so I won't roll for movement. But he does go to f3, exh, so here's his extend march foll (+2)

79 12/5/2019 6:34:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Also, in that combat, Thomas was in the hex with his special power of adding one to defense, so I think it was a -4 combat result, but it makes no difference to the end result.
78 12/5/2019 6:31:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Very lucky combat result for the Union.

Following that combat, all 3 of Hooker's corps would like to use the defender's voluntary retreat option--even though it costs them manpower and a fatigue (so I can see why one might assume that they wouldn't do it).

So, all 3 units retreat 4 hexes, first to 1716 (costing them each 1 manpower), then to 1815, 1915, and ending in 2014 (Smyrna Station). They all gain a fatigue and the flanks refused marker goes away. The opportunity to end in Smyrna Station in decent shape, albeit rather isolated, must be too much for me to pass up.

51 11/15/2019 7:03:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message With all my experience with this game system, I still have to go back and study the woods effects on movement and flanking. So because of the woods, I don't project a ZOC for purposes of stopping your march, but for attack flanking, they are included, then pulled back. So you had a +4 for all 6 hexes, then backing off what would have been 4 hexes, but the max reduction is 3, right?
