I remember many years ago when the games were still in the Talonsoft stage there were the Norris-Frost conversions that reduced the maximum size of infantry units to 400 men. I forget the max artillery number but the intent was to have a max number more in keeping with historical frontages. I playe...

When I began to have battles with Col. John Brogden 6/1/XIV, AotC he requested that we have a house rule where he proposed that artillery stacking be limited to a maximum of eight guns per hex as he considered it a more realistic interpretation than the limits imposed by the game. It sounded right t...

What could it possibly be?

I've been searching through the various titles and I can't think of a major campaign that has not been covered, especially as the statement says it includes naval actions, shore bombardments and amphibious operations.

Why there is a change in the Victory Points, I do not know although I'm sure that many far more knowledgeable about the game will have the answer for you. I think the ACWGC rule quoted below should prevent, as you say, "the side with the larger force should generally not be guaranteed a victor...

I've always subscribed to General Lee's comments in his farewell address to his troops when he said " After four years of arduous service marked by unsurpassed courage and fortitude, the Army of Northern Virginia has been compelled to yield to overwhelming numbers and resources. " If this ...

The phrase "Oh, I wish he was ours!" could only have come from someone in the Union about a Confederate. Those in the Confederacy had no desire for any in the Union army to be leading them and often with very good cause. The Union may keep theirs and the Confederacy can find a place for al...

Is it necessary to email each Committee member or can I just select one and send it to them?

I had never heard of John Paul Strain. I like the looks of his work; I like it a lot.

This year my Christmas present to myself was several JTS titles; next year I will look at getting one of Strain's prints. Good stuff.

I guess if the proposal would have been first posted on the "Questions for the Cabinet, Ideas, Suggestions" section the point of discussion wouldn't come up again and again. General Hecht <salute> I am not certain this is a matter of again and again. The fact is a rule revision was propos...

To kind of put some of your concern at ease, in terms of Confederate army/unit names, any flags, leader images, unit icons, etc. used on the websites, that won't change, regardless of statement or not. We're a historical wargaming club, nothing more, so there isn't going to be any change in this re...

I am still looking for the part of the rules that allows Cabinet Members and the President to extend their own terms of office without notice to the Club and without any given reason or explanation. Now you rush to update the Cabinet's Terms? Seems to me that would fall under the category of action...

El Capitan Blake <salute> 2) [The wording of this question was difficult – hopefully I didn’t butcher it] We live in a different world than existed in 1997. I have always found the Club to be a very welcoming and accepting place where all are welcome. Yet the Club has no official declaration of the...
