412 2/9/2020 3:33:00 PM Turn 2 USA Message Thought of a maybe a better idea: would you be up for next scenario in the tourney? Battle of Atlanta? Looks like a goofy scenario: storm the castle.

Went back through the log of this game. Wild one:

Day 1:

USA 1st corps first to Gettysburg…Rodes attacks, fails to dislodge Doubleday. Heth does dislodge Wadsworth to west.
Early then fails an assault roll on Getty.

Hood takes Gettyburg. Meade retakes! And Mclaws retakes! (all within fitst 20 inits)

Initial USA Army Move Roll = 6, CSA won first 6 intis…USA first 7 inf movement die rolls avg 4.3

Gettysburg changed hands 3 times first 20 inits. After that, each sides rushes up reinforcements.

Day ends with USA crushing Law and two miracles on the Marne: Jenkins (outnumbered 15x) cav holds off Slocum's corps twice at Rock Creek.

Day 2:

USA flanks east…and west (to cut off CSA reinforcements to Getty). Hill's corps attempts to dislodge Humphreys…twice…fails badly.

410 2/9/2020 8:07:00 AM Turn 2 CSA Message You played soundly too...

We could try the "fix"?

1. Heth moves up first.
2. Union rolls two dice, move half - rounded up/down randomly.
3. Normal initiative.
Other possibles
4. Stuart, Pickett etc could have first day release rolls of 4+ per unit.
5. XI Corps cannot attack off the march (Chancellorville syndrome)

(By just disallowing all attacks off the march against undisorganised units -50%+ of stack - the system would create more set-piece battles - not a problem for the scenarios of course.)

Just wrapping up another game on ACTS - and Im sure you want time to savour victory.. so a week or two later ok Herr Dr?
409 2/9/2020 12:05:00 AM Turn 2 USA Message I had crazy luck.

Thanks for the game. Had a blast.

I would be interested in switching sides and playing again whenever you wish.
408 2/9/2020 12:04:00 AM Turn 2 CSA Message Awesome!

Congrats on a Union Decisive...(would be anti-climactic to continue..)

I'm nominally on the wrong side of the narrative but I have to admit it was a classic..

Confederates head for Williamsport as the skies open up..

331 2/6/2020 11:17:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message It ain't over, mate. A couple of CSA initial inits...some favorable die rolls, it will be nip and tuck. Luck favored me, despite the 2 miracle on the Marne rolls, that turn. Especially the USA army come out roll...and then those horrible dice initial attacks for you. And, then MANY of my movement rolls.

329 2/6/2020 11:15:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message Not sure a Confederate victory is conceivable, but see if we can limit it to a Union marginal ;[
328 2/6/2020 11:14:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message I agree with you on the USA army activation; way tooooo dicey of a BIG impact on the scenario. I think I said, I've played once before ... with Beach at WBC... I rolled a "1". And then about the same after that trying to move to front. Beach was THICK by the time I got there. TOTALLY different game.
327 2/6/2020 11:12:00 PM Turn 1 CSA Message That;s good to hear, I enjoyed the previous scenario Kennesaw and the Cav scenario, although they all have some balance issues.

This one, not so much but im wondering if heth (alone) should activate first, then the Union Army, then roll as normal.

(Also wondering - for obvious reasons - whether an Army move should automatically succeed once per day, but rolling TWO dice and take the average.


326 2/6/2020 10:52:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Having a blast by the way; wild game. CRAZY dice swings.
325 2/6/2020 10:51:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message Miracle on the Marne dice held off that corps :-)
