OK, Morgan fires at the 62nd. 2SPs adjacent is a 6 to hit with no modifiers.

Rolling rifle fire with a 6 to hit
9 8/16/2020 8:17:00 PM Turn 1 American Message Gilbert - yes, I can only see a chit with a British Flag on it, and won't see it until you unreveal it in your next log file.

OK, I have hopefully played it safe by playing attack en echelon. When you reveal your chit go to the tactical matrix and find the attack en echelon column (attacker) row, and follow down from the top until it crosses the defender chit you selected.

The numner (e.g., 0, -1, +1, etc.) is the modifier to the current drm (which stands at +2 for now), which will be the final net modifier to the combat.

Then, roll the die, apply the modifier, and find the result on the 3:1 column
8 8/16/2020 8:09:00 PM Turn 1 American Message Correct Gilbert. The question mark means it is not revealed, so all I will see on my end is a chit with the British flag on it.
7 8/16/2020 8:03:00 PM Turn 1 British Message I'm not sure how the 'hidden chit' thing works in the Vassal module. I can always SEE the chit. There is a question mark side and a non-question mark side.

If I send you the file with the question mark SHOWING does that mean you cannot SEE it?

Not sure what side to have face up.


6 8/16/2020 7:08:00 PM Turn 1 American Message OK, no hit from rifle fire.

So, on to close combat! Only one combat. Everyone adjacent versus the 24th (arty is in the hex but their SPs do not count in combat). With everyone attacking its 13:4, 3:1.

Modifiers as follows: American lead unit +2 (Dearborn), British lead unit has to be 24th +1, leader combat value for Arnold is +2 and -1 for the rifle unit participating in the combat for a net +2 before we play tactics chits.

Now, combat is a little klunky via email. You will next pull your tactic chit onto the board and leave it unrevealed. I'll then send you a log file back that has my revealed tactics chit. Last, you reveal your chit, apply and changes in modifiers, and roll the dice.

Please note that you do not have a leader in your hex or adjacent, so you are limited to the basic 4 tactics (attack en echelon, skirmish, stand fast and withdrawal) while I can choose from any of them.

Also, when reading the tactics table make sure you read left to right as the defencer and top to bottom when attacking - I mess that up and I've been playing these games for almost 15 years!

Message from American:
OK, Rifle Fire phase. Rifle fire is only against adjacent units, so only the Americans have rifle fire.

Morgan targets the 24th. Morgan does not get a first fire bonus in this scenario, so no modifiers for that. 2 SP firing adjacent is a base to hit of 6, but a -1 for target in forest essentially means a 7 or higher is required to hit. Rolling...
4 8/16/2020 6:30:00 PM Turn 1 American Message Gilbert - even without seeing the target unit, a 4 is a miss. If you look on the to hit table for arty/rifles, you need to hit that number or higher (modified by terrain and/or target type as applicable) to secure a hit.
3 8/16/2020 6:27:00 PM Turn 1 British Message I believe that is a hit. I will send the vassal file and you can confirm.


2 8/16/2020 6:26:00 PM Turn 1 British Die roll request Request: 10-sided die x 1

Message from British:
German Artillery defence roll.


1 8/16/2020 6:26:00 PM Turn 1 British Message OK, found the site. Will be rolling for the defensive artillery shot.
