Pass.
66 9/16/2021 10:54:00 AM Turn 1 CSA Message Just FYI I'm gone this weekend. I fixed that last move and should be yours then. No rush if busy.
65 9/15/2021 2:50:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message I think in the case of Hammond, during a tournament game you'd be within your rights to say "too bad - you only rolled one die" - but I have not played enough tournament games to know the accepted etiquette. I suppose I'd be inclined to allow my opponent to correct an oversight but maybe not an actual rules violation, like moving a unit too far.
64 9/15/2021 2:41:00 PM Turn 1 USA Message From the rules page of the HSN tourney site: "Any errors identified by an opposing player are resolved by backing up to the point of the error and playing from there (that is, ignoring any die rolls or moves that occurred after the error). If, however, the opposing player has made a subsequent move or game die roll prior to the identification of the error, play is not revised and the error stands."
63 9/15/2021 11:32:00 AM Turn 1 CSA Message ok sorry and thanks for pointing this out. I was taking some shortcuts obviously from my live/PBEM Vassal play I'm used to.

And Hammond I just plain forgot. What happens in a tourney if you forgot your die like you did? Gentleman approach or just oh well you missed it?

So if OK and to make things easy I will just leave Buford at his first move spot which was 3817 and FAT 1.

I'll send you file now just for the heck of it.

62 9/15/2021 11:09:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Re. your move to 4215 with Buford's cavalry division: I moved Hammond to 4117 in journal entry #45 (where you allowed me the second movement die roll for Hammond). So the nearest open ford on the Harpeth River (south of Franklin) is at 4121 (Maple Grove).

In tournament play it is best practice to follow the Activate Leader steps 6, 7, 8 precisely. I got called on this a couple of times in AIO! Instead of rolling all XM's before moving anyone, it should go "Move > XM Roll > Force March" for each active unit.

In AIO I recall that we confirmed each other's board position at the end of the game turn. But it is certainly OK to confirm it any time during the game. Email a vsav file, or just send a listing of each unit's location and status as you have them on your board.

For this warm-up session, I am OK with allowing all the die-rolls to stand, and the move by Forrest/Chalmers division. Just need to re-do Buford's division move.

Message from CSA:
Forrest and his stack +3 DRM I'm tracking on Vassal and HSN module. Maybe I should share/email it once in while to make sure everybody is where they are supposed to be? Do you ever do that when using ACTS?
46 9/14/2021 9:05:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Pass
45 9/14/2021 8:39:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Hammond moves to 4117

I'm using a self-made vassal module to track the board position.

I like using ACTS because it allows me to think at length about my moves without having my opponent sitting and waiting for me in a live session. Yes, I admit to analysis paralysis at times! In the AIO tournament I was matched up against some veteran (expert) scenario players, so I appreciated the slow-mo pace afforded by ACTS. (But I still went 0-3 in the AIO tourney!)

I like ACTS also because it keeps a complete record of the game in one location. It is easy for the players (and the judge) to examine the game journal to verify, adjudicate, and correct mistakes.

I think your Hammond move could have rolled two dice? If so, you can fix when your turn as maybe no impact on my turn.

11 9/13/2021 9:27:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message I take Scen rule 1 to means that "during_the_first_3_Union_inits" each Union inf and cav unit can activate just once. But once those first 3 inits are done, Union inf and cav can activate again (if at F3 or less of course).

In contrast, leaders and wagons _can_ activate more than once in the first 3 Union inits.
10 9/13/2021 9:19:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message Replying to your latest email:

"Union first" means that when 2 die rolls are requested from the ACTS die roller (as in initiative and combat rolls), the Union gets first die roll generated, and the CSA the second.

This is the default assignment unless specified otherwise by the rolling player when the roll is requested. (Some players like to roll combat as "attacker, defender" irrespective of USA/CSA).

CSA does win tied initiative die rolls per Scenario rule 2.

Cox moved in journal entry 4, and I resolved his extended march roll in journal entry 5.

1 9/13/2021 7:14:00 AM Turn 1 USA Message I've got some spare time this morning to commence our game. Any double die rolls will always be "Union first" as in tourney rules unless specified otherwise at the time.

Starting Turn 1: no random events, no Union leader transfers. I'll assume there are no CSA leader transfers, but if there are, they won't effect Union moves, so you can do them before your first initiative.
