"I'm too old for once or twice a week play."

I completely understand that statement.

Even though they are within range and will have received a command bonus from their superior, their command rating still must equal or exceed a die roll. Those two division commanders got beaten by the dice.

"I have been instructed to place leaders at the top of the stack in order of command, but not really sure it matters. Does it?" I have the same habit but it is for my benefit in finding commanders. I would be shocked if it makes any difference to the game engine in what order our units/com...

Routed units can run in some strange directions, and for probably 15 years I have used corps commanders that were not in the routed units chain of command to assist in recovering them. My perception has always been that they did their job but the reality is that those units might have recovered on t...

What commanders, and at what distance, can assist a unit in recovering from a rout? Some examples: 1. Can any Army or Corps Commander that is within one hex of a routed unit, assist them in recovering from a rout, or must they be in the chain of command of that routed unit? 2. Can the routed unit's ...

I must be misunderstanding something. That makes it sound like it would be easier to uncrew a six gun battery as opposed to a one gun battery because you could impose more casualties on the six gun battery and it is still divided by 100.

I thrive on 'death stacks' but your logic makes sense. IF they ever offered it as an option then I would play with it but I'm not one to use house rules because it requires a certain amount of intelligence to keep up with 5 different games being played with 5 different sets of rules and I don't have...

I would recommend that you go to the Department of Records (DOR) and review the Game Scenario Reports for each of those titles. It will give you a good indication of how much they have been played and what the fortunes (win, lose, or draw) of each side were in the various scenarios. Then the opinion...

They identify a unit moving toward them from two hexes out (extremely handy in woods or other side of the hill, etc) and also cost that unit at least a movement point as they come into range which can sometimes mean the difference in whether or not that unit can close and attack that turn.

As said, the game and club rules allow melee in column. Many use a house rule, as stated, to limit the use of infantry meleeing in column, but many of us also do not use a house rule to limit it. The choice is up to the players but it should be settled before the game starts. If nothing is agreed up...

And the old man is taking a long nap. Feel free to disagree or add to what has been posted; to bring up topics and tips that I missed; or to start a new thread of your own concentrating on how to fight using a different set of options because using different options changes the whole complexity of t...

37. So you want to win most of the time? In general, the principle is simple, get there the fustest with the mostest. What that means is to figure out what your opponent is going to do before they do it so that you are ahead of them, waste no time nor movement points in getting to your objective hop...
